________________________

Jan Greben has had an independent architectural practice since 2002. Regardless of scale, projects are approached with an interest in the economical use of space and materials and a personal interpretation of modern principles. This leads to projects that are flexible, multi-functional and unexpected. Before founding her own studio, Greben worked in four notable architecture firms in New York City: Aldo Rossi Studio di Architettura, Smith-Miller + Hawkinson Architects, Francois de Menil Architect, and Keenen/Riley. Greben holds a Bachelor of Architecture from the University of Toronto and a Master of Science in Advanced Architectural Design from Columbia University. She has taught Architecture Studio at the New York Institute of Technology for the past nine years; developed and taught seminar courses on the architecture of Eileen Gray, Le Corbusier and Mies van der Rohe; and has co-taught Study Abroad programs in France. She is currently Thesis Coordinator at the Manhattan campus of NYIT. Her recent interview with Rainer Judd was published in Acne Paper, Winter 2012.

Music for BGC Late: Jazz & Conversation in the Gallery is guest curated by musician Gene Perla. Perla was raised in New Jersey where he studied classical piano and trombone. After attending Berklee School of Music, he moved to New York and began his musical career as a jazz bassist. He has performed and/or recorded with Chick Corea, Miles Davis, Dizzy Gillespie, Woody Herman, Elvin Jones, Thad Jones/Mel Lewis Orchestra, Chuck Mangione, Joni Mitchell, Buddy Rich, Sonny Rollins, Nina Simone, Frank Sinatra, Stone Alliance, Sarah Vaughan, Nancy Wilson, and others. In the early 1970s he formed music publishing and record companies, and his group “Stone Alliance” traveled to South America and Europe, through which he developed experience in management and booking. Perla is also a Broadway sound designer (Tony Award for City of Angels), has expertise in recording studio operations, and is the webmaster for the Jazz Education Network.
