Phase Changes: Glimpses of the Diaspora
Community Folk Art Center

Price: Free
Community Folk Art Center
805 E. Genesee St., Syracuse

"Phase Changes: Gilmpses of the Diaspora" is an exhibition designed to highlight the energy and dynamism of the CFAC permanent collection. Much like phases of matter, art of the African Diaspora has evolved to reflect changing social and cultural landscapes through many generations of artists. For example, one can observe water condensing from vapor to a liquid and finally to ice, and know that the end result is still the same compound. Like water, one can note the significant differences between these works of art and recognize that each still embodies the essential components and spirit of African Diasporan art.

John Edmonds: Anonymous
Light Work Gallery

Light Work Gallery
316 Waverly Ave., Syracuse University, Syracuse

In his exhibition, Anonymous, John Edmonds combines two distinct series of portraits, both of which conceal the identities of their subjects. The first series comprises striking formal studies of individuals wearing hoods on the street, photographed from behind. We can quickly read this suite of images as a statement on the unjust death of Trayvon Martin and how individuals of color face issues of racism, safety, and injustice in systemic ways. "All the work that I make is from a very personal place," says Edmonds of his process. "It starts with me." Edmonds further embeds himself in this work by photographing his subjects wearing his own hoodies and jackets. With little visual clues to guide us, we may only learn from the artist that the obscured individuals in fact vary in race, gender, and age.

In contrast to the charged public space that Edmonds considers with these pictures, a second series of portraits celebrates blackness and beauty through private and sensual pictures of men wearing du-rags. Once again, Edmonds photographs his subjects from directly behind them. We can trace the du-rag's origin to the head-wraps worn by female slaves during the antebellum period, and later used to preserve hairstyles, but today both men and women wear du-rags as a symbol asserting cultural pride. A melancholy underlies these portraits, though a majestic and spiritual quality also comes forward, calling to mind totems and religious iconography. A softness and warmth emanates from the colors and folds of the cloth. Edmonds exhibits these portraits on a larger-than-life, monumental scale, implying both nobility and strength, while also subtly undermining the grandiosity by printing on delicate, flowing silk.

Meant to Be Shared: Selections from the Arthur Ross Collection of European Prints at Yale University Art Gallery
SU Art Galleries

Price: Free
SU Art Galleries, Shaffer Art Building
Syracuse University, Syracuse

Beginning in the late 1970s, philanthropist Arthur Ross (1910-2007) avidly collected for his eponymous foundation works of art by some of the most renowned printmakers of the last several centuries. The Arthur Ross Collection eventually came to comprise more than 1,200 17th- to 20th-century Italian, Spanish, and French prints of exceptional quality. Highlights include works by Francisco Goya, the first artist whom Ross collected; Giovanni Battista Piranesi's views of 18th-century and ancient Rome, which reflect Ross's love of classicism and the Eternal City; and Édouard Manet's illustrations for Edgar Allan Poe's famous poem The Raven.

From the collection's early years, The Arthur Ross Foundation frequently lent to academic institutions, museums, and cultural organizations, such that for three decades, some portion of the collection was accessible to the public.

Organized by the Yale University Art Gallery, and made possible by the Ross Foundation, Syracuse University Art Galleries is the final venue for this touring exhibition.

Americans in Venice: Late 19th and Early 20th Century Prints
SU Art Galleries

SU Art Galleries, Shaffer Art Building
Syracuse University, Syracuse

"Americans in Venice: Late 19th and Early 20th Century Prints," curated by SUArt Galleries director Domenic Iacono, presents six prints by James McNeill Whistler from this period, placing them alongside the work of other Americans who were practicing in Italy in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. The juxtaposition of these works allows the viewer to appreciate Whistler's innovations and his effect on the artists who followed him. Artists such as Mortimer Menpes, Frank Duveneck, Otto Bacher, and Joseph Pennell owe much to Whistler's innovative style and approach and, in turn, their work had an impact on the artists who made prints of Venice during the 20th century.

That Day Now: Shadows Cast by Hiroshima
Everson Museum of Art

Everson Museum of Art
401 Harrison St., Syracuse

A changing project room of curated objects and original works

On August 6, 1945, the United States dropped an atomic bomb on Hiroshima, Japan, killing as many as 200,000 people, severely injuring countless more, and immediately raising the specter, still with us, of total annihilation. Three days later Nagasaki, Japan, suffered the same fate. The impact of these bombings on the way we view the world cannot be understated. Historian Robert Jay Lifton has written: "You cannot understand the twentieth century without Hiroshima."

Yet, how exactly do we regard Hiroshima (understood not only as referring collectively to both the bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, but also all such possible catastrophes to come), particularly as it fades in cultural memory? How can we find its present urgency? This exhibition is one humble attempt to grapple with this difficult question. It takes the form of a project room that will undergo three transformations between August 19 and November 26.

For the first phase of the exhibition (August 19-October 18), Syracuse University Professors Yutaka Sho, Susannah Sayler, and Edward Morris have curated images and objects from Syracuse University and Everson collections that were created in 1945, the year that bombs were dropped on Hiroshima and Nagasaki. None of these images and objects were made with Hiroshima specifically in mind. Some of them relate directly to the war; some of them do not. Together, however, they form a montage made from the artifacts of history and bear upon the spirit of the times in a way that could not be accomplished by a direct or literal treatment. The montage needs to be activated with reflection.

Students in a studio class taught by Professors Sho and Morris will continue to transform the exhibition in two additional phases, opening on October 18 and November 16 respectively.

The exhibition is part of a larger program at Syracuse University and other locations in the city that centers around a visit in October of one survivor from Hiroshima, Keiko Ogura. Ms. Ogura was eight years old when the bomb fell, and she has since become the official A-bomb storyteller for the city of Hiroshima and tireless advocate for peace and nuclear nonproliferation issues that have gained an unexpected urgency in recent months.

Point of Contact Gallery
350 W. Fayette St., Syracuse

Six established, mid-career, and emerging artists from England and USA, in collaboration with three curators and audiences in Portsmouth, England, are developing new work for transport and presentation in Syracuse, previously in Venice, Italy, and Portsmouth, United Kingdom.

The artists are Yvonne Buchanan (USA), Mia Delve (UK), Tom Hall (UK/USA), Mika Mollenkopf (USA), Harold Offeh (UK), Susan Stockwell (UK). The curators are Joanne Bushnell, Director of Aspex Gallery, UK; Stephanie James, Director of the School of Art, VPA; Mark Segal, the artists agency, UK.

The artists have been invited to contribute to an international project, developing networks and forums for collaboration for contemporary arts practitioners, audiences in New York State and the south of England through the international art hub of the Venice Biennale.

Boîte-en-Valise encourages transportability of practice, the nurturing of collaboration and cross-fertilization of artistic practice.

Each artist is transporting the means to generate their new work, begun by working with audiences over several days in Syracuse, in a normal sized suitcase. To be transported as luggage on a normal flight, train, or bus journey and taken from the suitcase for presentation without any fixing to walls, floors and/or ceilings of the venues.

The six artists bring together works including sculpture, performance, video, photography, and sound as well as interventions and conversations.

Syracuse University provides an international critical space for artists and curators to consider the project, while connecting back via live-streaming to the audiences engaged in the initial development and production phase in Portsmouth.

"Just Our Type" highlights the new Sherman Book typeface, developed from Goudy's original design by Chester Jenkins of Village Type Foundry, the cornerstone of the University's new brand identity. Through documentary video, didactic timelines and displays, and examples of original Goudy artifacts from the University's Special Collections, this exhibition explores the elements typography through the lens of Syracuse's own signature typeface.

Syracuse University, Syracuse

Beginning in the late 1970s, philanthropist Arthur Ross (1910-2007) avidly collected for his eponymous foundation works of art by some of the most renowned printmakers of the last several centuries. The Arthur Ross Collection eventually came to comprise more than 1,200 17th- to 20th-century Italian, Spanish, and French prints of exceptional quality. Highlights include works by Francisco Goya, the first artist whom Ross collected; Giovanni Battista Piranesi's views of 18th-century and ancient Rome, which reflect Ross's love of classicism and the Eternal City; and Édouard Manet's illustrations for Edgar Allan Poe's famous poem The Raven.

From the collection's early years, The Arthur Ross Foundation frequently lent to academic institutions, museums, and cultural organizations, such that for three decades, some portion of the collection was accessible to the public.

Organized by the Yale University Art Gallery, and made possible by the Ross Foundation, Syracuse University Art Galleries is the final venue for this touring exhibition.

Artists such as Mortimer Menpes, Frank Duveneck, Otto Bacher, and Joseph Pennell owe much to Whistler's innovative style and approach and, in turn, their work had an impact on the artists who made prints of Venice during the 20th century.

Boite-en-Valise
Point of Contact Gallery

Price: Free
Point of Contact Gallery
350 W. Fayette St., Syracuse

Six established, mid-career, and emerging artists from England and USA, in collaboration with three curators and audiences in Portsmouth, England, are developing new work for transport and presentation in Syracuse, previously in Venice, Italy, and Portsmouth, United Kingdom.

The artists are Yvonne Buchanan (USA), Mia Delve (UK), Tom Hall (UK/USA), Mika Mollenkopf (USA), Harold Offeh (UK), Susan Stockwell (UK). The curators are Joanne Bushnell, Director of Aspex Gallery, UK; Stephanie James, Director of the School of Art, VPA; Mark Segal, the artists agency, UK.

The artists have been invited to contribute to an international project, developing networks and forums for collaboration for contemporary arts practitioners, audiences in New York State and the south of England through the international art hub of the Venice Biennale.

Boîte-en-Valise encourages transportability of practice, the nurturing of collaboration and cross-fertilization of artistic practice.

Each artist is transporting the means to generate their new work, begun by working with audiences over several days in Syracuse, in a normal sized suitcase. To be transported as luggage on a normal flight, train, or bus journey and taken from the suitcase for presentation without any fixing to walls, floors and/or ceilings of the venues.

The six artists bring together works including sculpture, performance, video, photography, and sound as well as interventions and conversations.

Syracuse University provides an international critical space for artists and curators to consider the project, while connecting back via live-streaming to the audiences engaged in the initial development and production phase in Portsmouth.

Just Our Type
Syracuse University School of Art and Design

Price: Free
Genet Design Gallery
The Warehouse, 350 W. Fayette St., Syracuse

In 2016, Syracuse University hired Pentagram, the world's largest independent design consultancy, to create a new visual identity for the 21st century. When it was discovered that there was a unique connection between the University and Frederic W. Goudy, one of America's foremost type designers, and that the Special Collections Research Center was in possession of original Goudy type matrices, the decision was made to incorporate these original artifacts into the project.

"Just Our Type" highlights the new Sherman Book typeface, developed from Goudy's original design by Chester Jenkins of Village Type Foundry, the cornerstone of the University's new brand identity. Through documentary video, didactic timelines and displays, and examples of original Goudy artifacts from the University's Special Collections, this exhibition explores the elements typography through the lens of Syracuse's own signature typeface.

Opening: Still the One: Douglas Lloyd Makes Portraits of Women Making Change the Old-Fashioned Way
ArtRage Gallery

Price: Free
ArtRage Gallery
505 Hawley Ave., Syracuse

There will be an opening reception this evening 7:00-9:00 pm.

For this exhibition, ArtRage sought out local elder women activists; all are 80 years or older. "Still the One" addresses urgent questions: what exactly is "activism" and where do we find it? What and who have we lost sight of? What endures? What will get us safely home again? We are seeking the wisdom of these elders in a troubled and urgent moment, going back to the source or back to the well; seeking to recognize those who persisted and endured and made a difference.

Twenty-six Central New York women were selected to be honored in this way: Arlene Abend, Pat Bergan, Carol Berrigan, Dolores Brule, Joan N. Burstyn, Marjorie Dey Carter, Ruth Johnson Colvin, Amy Doherty, Lula Donald, Jane Feld, Annette Guisbond, Geneva Hayden, Fumiyo (Miyo) Hirano, Charlotte (Chuckie) Holstein, Joyce Homan, Joyce Jones, Martha Holly Loew, Marian Miller, Nancy Sullivan Murray, Julienne Oldfield, Frances M. Parks, Dorothy (Dotty) Pearl, Margaret Rusk, Betty Bone Schiess, Ann Tiffany, and Mary Ann Zeppetello.

A photographer for 25 years, Douglas Lloyd has focused on wet plate processing since 2014. Wet plate collodion photography was invented in 1851 and widely revived in recent years for the detail and loveliness of its images. "Still the One" finds a perfect fit between method and subject; one which values age and history.

John Edmonds: Anonymous
Light Work Gallery

Light Work Gallery
316 Waverly Ave., Syracuse University, Syracuse

In his exhibition, Anonymous, John Edmonds combines two distinct series of portraits, both of which conceal the identities of their subjects. The first series comprises striking formal studies of individuals wearing hoods on the street, photographed from behind. We can quickly read this suite of images as a statement on the unjust death of Trayvon Martin and how individuals of color face issues of racism, safety, and injustice in systemic ways. "All the work that I make is from a very personal place," says Edmonds of his process. "It starts with me." Edmonds further embeds himself in this work by photographing his subjects wearing his own hoodies and jackets. With little visual clues to guide us, we may only learn from the artist that the obscured individuals in fact vary in race, gender, and age.

In contrast to the charged public space that Edmonds considers with these pictures, a second series of portraits celebrates blackness and beauty through private and sensual pictures of men wearing du-rags. Once again, Edmonds photographs his subjects from directly behind them. We can trace the du-rag's origin to the head-wraps worn by female slaves during the antebellum period, and later used to preserve hairstyles, but today both men and women wear du-rags as a symbol asserting cultural pride. A melancholy underlies these portraits, though a majestic and spiritual quality also comes forward, calling to mind totems and religious iconography. A softness and warmth emanates from the colors and folds of the cloth. Edmonds exhibits these portraits on a larger-than-life, monumental scale, implying both nobility and strength, while also subtly undermining the grandiosity by printing on delicate, flowing silk.

Meant to Be Shared: Selections from the Arthur Ross Collection of European Prints at Yale University Art Gallery
SU Art Galleries

Price: Free
SU Art Galleries, Shaffer Art Building
Syracuse University, Syracuse

Beginning in the late 1970s, philanthropist Arthur Ross (1910-2007) avidly collected for his eponymous foundation works of art by some of the most renowned printmakers of the last several centuries. The Arthur Ross Collection eventually came to comprise more than 1,200 17th- to 20th-century Italian, Spanish, and French prints of exceptional quality. Highlights include works by Francisco Goya, the first artist whom Ross collected; Giovanni Battista Piranesi's views of 18th-century and ancient Rome, which reflect Ross's love of classicism and the Eternal City; and Édouard Manet's illustrations for Edgar Allan Poe's famous poem The Raven.

From the collection's early years, The Arthur Ross Foundation frequently lent to academic institutions, museums, and cultural organizations, such that for three decades, some portion of the collection was accessible to the public.

Organized by the Yale University Art Gallery, and made possible by the Ross Foundation, Syracuse University Art Galleries is the final venue for this touring exhibition.

That Day Now: Shadows Cast by Hiroshima
Everson Museum of Art

Everson Museum of Art
401 Harrison St., Syracuse

A changing project room of curated objects and original works

On August 6, 1945, the United States dropped an atomic bomb on Hiroshima, Japan, killing as many as 200,000 people, severely injuring countless more, and immediately raising the specter, still with us, of total annihilation. Three days later Nagasaki, Japan, suffered the same fate. The impact of these bombings on the way we view the world cannot be understated. Historian Robert Jay Lifton has written: "You cannot understand the twentieth century without Hiroshima."

Yet, how exactly do we regard Hiroshima (understood not only as referring collectively to both the bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, but also all such possible catastrophes to come), particularly as it fades in cultural memory? How can we find its present urgency? This exhibition is one humble attempt to grapple with this difficult question. It takes the form of a project room that will undergo three transformations between August 19 and November 26.

For the first phase of the exhibition (August 19-October 18), Syracuse University Professors Yutaka Sho, Susannah Sayler, and Edward Morris have curated images and objects from Syracuse University and Everson collections that were created in 1945, the year that bombs were dropped on Hiroshima and Nagasaki. None of these images and objects were made with Hiroshima specifically in mind. Some of them relate directly to the war; some of them do not. Together, however, they form a montage made from the artifacts of history and bear upon the spirit of the times in a way that could not be accomplished by a direct or literal treatment. The montage needs to be activated with reflection.

Students in a studio class taught by Professors Sho and Morris will continue to transform the exhibition in two additional phases, opening on October 18 and November 16 respectively.

The exhibition is part of a larger program at Syracuse University and other locations in the city that centers around a visit in October of one survivor from Hiroshima, Keiko Ogura. Ms. Ogura was eight years old when the bomb fell, and she has since become the official A-bomb storyteller for the city of Hiroshima and tireless advocate for peace and nuclear nonproliferation issues that have gained an unexpected urgency in recent months.

In the Arts and Crafts Style: Woodblock Prints by Laura Wilder
Dalton's American Decorative Arts

Dalton's American Decorative Arts
1931 James St., Syracuse

After getting her degree in art and spending several years as a graphic designer and commercial illustrator, Laura discovered the designs and philosophy of the Arts and Crafts movement. Inspired, she learned printmaking, and submitted her vintage-style block prints to the Roycroft Renaissance Jury. Approved, she became a Roycroft Renaissance Artisan, and was soon elevated to Master Artisan status signifying very high quality design and execution. Twenty years later, she continues to make block prints and paintings inspired by the beauty in nature, the Arts and Crafts Movement, and the sweet, simple things in life.

Laura has won many awards and prestigious commissions for her work, which can be seen at shows, in many galleries and shops nationwide, and at www.laurawilder.com.

John Edmonds: Anonymous
Light Work Gallery

Light Work Gallery
316 Waverly Ave., Syracuse University, Syracuse

In his exhibition, Anonymous, John Edmonds combines two distinct series of portraits, both of which conceal the identities of their subjects. The first series comprises striking formal studies of individuals wearing hoods on the street, photographed from behind. We can quickly read this suite of images as a statement on the unjust death of Trayvon Martin and how individuals of color face issues of racism, safety, and injustice in systemic ways. "All the work that I make is from a very personal place," says Edmonds of his process. "It starts with me." Edmonds further embeds himself in this work by photographing his subjects wearing his own hoodies and jackets. With little visual clues to guide us, we may only learn from the artist that the obscured individuals in fact vary in race, gender, and age.

In contrast to the charged public space that Edmonds considers with these pictures, a second series of portraits celebrates blackness and beauty through private and sensual pictures of men wearing du-rags. Once again, Edmonds photographs his subjects from directly behind them. We can trace the du-rag's origin to the head-wraps worn by female slaves during the antebellum period, and later used to preserve hairstyles, but today both men and women wear du-rags as a symbol asserting cultural pride. A melancholy underlies these portraits, though a majestic and spiritual quality also comes forward, calling to mind totems and religious iconography. A softness and warmth emanates from the colors and folds of the cloth. Edmonds exhibits these portraits on a larger-than-life, monumental scale, implying both nobility and strength, while also subtly undermining the grandiosity by printing on delicate, flowing silk.

"Phase Changes: Gilmpses of the Diaspora" is an exhibition designed to highlight the energy and dynamism of the CFAC permanent collection. Much like phases of matter, art of the African Diaspora has evolved to reflect changing social and cultural landscapes through many generations of artists. For example, one can observe water condensing from vapor to a liquid and finally to ice, and know that the end result is still the same compound. Like water, one can note the significant differences between these works of art and recognize that each still embodies the essential components and spirit of African Diasporan art.

Meant to Be Shared: Selections from the Arthur Ross Collection of European Prints at Yale University Art Gallery
SU Art Galleries

Price: Free
SU Art Galleries, Shaffer Art Building
Syracuse University, Syracuse

Beginning in the late 1970s, philanthropist Arthur Ross (1910-2007) avidly collected for his eponymous foundation works of art by some of the most renowned printmakers of the last several centuries. The Arthur Ross Collection eventually came to comprise more than 1,200 17th- to 20th-century Italian, Spanish, and French prints of exceptional quality. Highlights include works by Francisco Goya, the first artist whom Ross collected; Giovanni Battista Piranesi's views of 18th-century and ancient Rome, which reflect Ross's love of classicism and the Eternal City; and Édouard Manet's illustrations for Edgar Allan Poe's famous poem The Raven.

From the collection's early years, The Arthur Ross Foundation frequently lent to academic institutions, museums, and cultural organizations, such that for three decades, some portion of the collection was accessible to the public.

Organized by the Yale University Art Gallery, and made possible by the Ross Foundation, Syracuse University Art Galleries is the final venue for this touring exhibition.

Syracuse University, Syracuse

"Americans in Venice: Late 19th and Early 20th Century Prints," curated by SUArt Galleries director Domenic Iacono, presents six prints by James McNeill Whistler from this period, placing them alongside the work of other Americans who were practicing in Italy in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. The juxtaposition of these works allows the viewer to appreciate Whistler's innovations and his effect on the artists who followed him. Artists such as Mortimer Menpes, Frank Duveneck, Otto Bacher, and Joseph Pennell owe much to Whistler's innovative style and approach and, in turn, their work had an impact on the artists who made prints of Venice during the 20th century.

350 W. Fayette St., Syracuse

Six established, mid-career, and emerging artists from England and USA, in collaboration with three curators and audiences in Portsmouth, England, are developing new work for transport and presentation in Syracuse, previously in Venice, Italy, and Portsmouth, United Kingdom.

The artists are Yvonne Buchanan (USA), Mia Delve (UK), Tom Hall (UK/USA), Mika Mollenkopf (USA), Harold Offeh (UK), Susan Stockwell (UK). The curators are Joanne Bushnell, Director of Aspex Gallery, UK; Stephanie James, Director of the School of Art, VPA; Mark Segal, the artists agency, UK.

The artists have been invited to contribute to an international project, developing networks and forums for collaboration for contemporary arts practitioners, audiences in New York State and the south of England through the international art hub of the Venice Biennale.

Boîte-en-Valise encourages transportability of practice, the nurturing of collaboration and cross-fertilization of artistic practice.

Each artist is transporting the means to generate their new work, begun by working with audiences over several days in Syracuse, in a normal sized suitcase. To be transported as luggage on a normal flight, train, or bus journey and taken from the suitcase for presentation without any fixing to walls, floors and/or ceilings of the venues.

The six artists bring together works including sculpture, performance, video, photography, and sound as well as interventions and conversations.

Syracuse University provides an international critical space for artists and curators to consider the project, while connecting back via live-streaming to the audiences engaged in the initial development and production phase in Portsmouth.

Meant to Be Shared: Selections from the Arthur Ross Collection of European Prints at Yale University Art Gallery
SU Art Galleries

Price: Free
SU Art Galleries, Shaffer Art Building
Syracuse University, Syracuse

Beginning in the late 1970s, philanthropist Arthur Ross (1910-2007) avidly collected for his eponymous foundation works of art by some of the most renowned printmakers of the last several centuries. The Arthur Ross Collection eventually came to comprise more than 1,200 17th- to 20th-century Italian, Spanish, and French prints of exceptional quality. Highlights include works by Francisco Goya, the first artist whom Ross collected; Giovanni Battista Piranesi's views of 18th-century and ancient Rome, which reflect Ross's love of classicism and the Eternal City; and Édouard Manet's illustrations for Edgar Allan Poe's famous poem The Raven.

From the collection's early years, The Arthur Ross Foundation frequently lent to academic institutions, museums, and cultural organizations, such that for three decades, some portion of the collection was accessible to the public.

Organized by the Yale University Art Gallery, and made possible by the Ross Foundation, Syracuse University Art Galleries is the final venue for this touring exhibition.

Americans in Venice: Late 19th and Early 20th Century Prints
SU Art Galleries

SU Art Galleries, Shaffer Art Building
Syracuse University, Syracuse

"Americans in Venice: Late 19th and Early 20th Century Prints," curated by SUArt Galleries director Domenic Iacono, presents six prints by James McNeill Whistler from this period, placing them alongside the work of other Americans who were practicing in Italy in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. The juxtaposition of these works allows the viewer to appreciate Whistler's innovations and his effect on the artists who followed him. Artists such as Mortimer Menpes, Frank Duveneck, Otto Bacher, and Joseph Pennell owe much to Whistler's innovative style and approach and, in turn, their work had an impact on the artists who made prints of Venice during the 20th century.

That Day Now: Shadows Cast by Hiroshima
Everson Museum of Art

Everson Museum of Art
401 Harrison St., Syracuse

A changing project room of curated objects and original works

On August 6, 1945, the United States dropped an atomic bomb on Hiroshima, Japan, killing as many as 200,000 people, severely injuring countless more, and immediately raising the specter, still with us, of total annihilation. Three days later Nagasaki, Japan, suffered the same fate. The impact of these bombings on the way we view the world cannot be understated. Historian Robert Jay Lifton has written: "You cannot understand the twentieth century without Hiroshima."

Yet, how exactly do we regard Hiroshima (understood not only as referring collectively to both the bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, but also all such possible catastrophes to come), particularly as it fades in cultural memory? How can we find its present urgency? This exhibition is one humble attempt to grapple with this difficult question. It takes the form of a project room that will undergo three transformations between August 19 and November 26.

For the first phase of the exhibition (August 19-October 18), Syracuse University Professors Yutaka Sho, Susannah Sayler, and Edward Morris have curated images and objects from Syracuse University and Everson collections that were created in 1945, the year that bombs were dropped on Hiroshima and Nagasaki. None of these images and objects were made with Hiroshima specifically in mind. Some of them relate directly to the war; some of them do not. Together, however, they form a montage made from the artifacts of history and bear upon the spirit of the times in a way that could not be accomplished by a direct or literal treatment. The montage needs to be activated with reflection.

Students in a studio class taught by Professors Sho and Morris will continue to transform the exhibition in two additional phases, opening on October 18 and November 16 respectively.

The exhibition is part of a larger program at Syracuse University and other locations in the city that centers around a visit in October of one survivor from Hiroshima, Keiko Ogura. Ms. Ogura was eight years old when the bomb fell, and she has since become the official A-bomb storyteller for the city of Hiroshima and tireless advocate for peace and nuclear nonproliferation issues that have gained an unexpected urgency in recent months.

Price: Free
Point of Contact Gallery
350 W. Fayette St., Syracuse

Six established, mid-career, and emerging artists from England and USA, in collaboration with three curators and audiences in Portsmouth, England, are developing new work for transport and presentation in Syracuse, previously in Venice, Italy, and Portsmouth, United Kingdom.

The artists are Yvonne Buchanan (USA), Mia Delve (UK), Tom Hall (UK/USA), Mika Mollenkopf (USA), Harold Offeh (UK), Susan Stockwell (UK). The curators are Joanne Bushnell, Director of Aspex Gallery, UK; Stephanie James, Director of the School of Art, VPA; Mark Segal, the artists agency, UK.

The artists have been invited to contribute to an international project, developing networks and forums for collaboration for contemporary arts practitioners, audiences in New York State and the south of England through the international art hub of the Venice Biennale.

Boîte-en-Valise encourages transportability of practice, the nurturing of collaboration and cross-fertilization of artistic practice.

Each artist is transporting the means to generate their new work, begun by working with audiences over several days in Syracuse, in a normal sized suitcase. To be transported as luggage on a normal flight, train, or bus journey and taken from the suitcase for presentation without any fixing to walls, floors and/or ceilings of the venues.

The six artists bring together works including sculpture, performance, video, photography, and sound as well as interventions and conversations.

Syracuse University provides an international critical space for artists and curators to consider the project, while connecting back via live-streaming to the audiences engaged in the initial development and production phase in Portsmouth.

Genet Design Gallery
The Warehouse, 350 W. Fayette St., Syracuse

In 2016, Syracuse University hired Pentagram, the world's largest independent design consultancy, to create a new visual identity for the 21st century. When it was discovered that there was a unique connection between the University and Frederic W. Goudy, one of America's foremost type designers, and that the Special Collections Research Center was in possession of original Goudy type matrices, the decision was made to incorporate these original artifacts into the project.

"Just Our Type" highlights the new Sherman Book typeface, developed from Goudy's original design by Chester Jenkins of Village Type Foundry, the cornerstone of the University's new brand identity. Through documentary video, didactic timelines and displays, and examples of original Goudy artifacts from the University's Special Collections, this exhibition explores the elements typography through the lens of Syracuse's own signature typeface.

Still the One: Douglas Lloyd Makes Portraits of Women Making Change the Old-Fashioned Way
ArtRage Gallery

Price: Free
ArtRage Gallery
505 Hawley Ave., Syracuse

For this exhibition, ArtRage sought out local elder women activists; all are 80 years or older. "Still the One" addresses urgent questions: what exactly is "activism" and where do we find it? What and who have we lost sight of? What endures? What will get us safely home again? We are seeking the wisdom of these elders in a troubled and urgent moment, going back to the source or back to the well; seeking to recognize those who persisted and endured and made a difference.

Twenty-six Central New York women were selected to be honored in this way: Arlene Abend, Pat Bergan, Carol Berrigan, Dolores Brule, Joan N. Burstyn, Marjorie Dey Carter, Ruth Johnson Colvin, Amy Doherty, Lula Donald, Jane Feld, Annette Guisbond, Geneva Hayden, Fumiyo (Miyo) Hirano, Charlotte (Chuckie) Holstein, Joyce Homan, Joyce Jones, Martha Holly Loew, Marian Miller, Nancy Sullivan Murray, Julienne Oldfield, Frances M. Parks, Dorothy (Dotty) Pearl, Margaret Rusk, Betty Bone Schiess, Ann Tiffany, and Mary Ann Zeppetello.

A photographer for 25 years, Douglas Lloyd has focused on wet plate processing since 2014. Wet plate collodion photography was invented in 1851 and widely revived in recent years for the detail and loveliness of its images. "Still the One" finds a perfect fit between method and subject; one which values age and history.

For example, one can observe water condensing from vapor to a liquid and finally to ice, and know that the end result is still the same compound. Like water, one can note the significant differences between these works of art and recognize that each still embodies the essential components and spirit of African Diasporan art.

John Edmonds: Anonymous
Light Work Gallery

Light Work Gallery
316 Waverly Ave., Syracuse University, Syracuse

In his exhibition, Anonymous, John Edmonds combines two distinct series of portraits, both of which conceal the identities of their subjects. The first series comprises striking formal studies of individuals wearing hoods on the street, photographed from behind. We can quickly read this suite of images as a statement on the unjust death of Trayvon Martin and how individuals of color face issues of racism, safety, and injustice in systemic ways. "All the work that I make is from a very personal place," says Edmonds of his process. "It starts with me." Edmonds further embeds himself in this work by photographing his subjects wearing his own hoodies and jackets. With little visual clues to guide us, we may only learn from the artist that the obscured individuals in fact vary in race, gender, and age.

In contrast to the charged public space that Edmonds considers with these pictures, a second series of portraits celebrates blackness and beauty through private and sensual pictures of men wearing du-rags. Once again, Edmonds photographs his subjects from directly behind them. We can trace the du-rag's origin to the head-wraps worn by female slaves during the antebellum period, and later used to preserve hairstyles, but today both men and women wear du-rags as a symbol asserting cultural pride. A melancholy underlies these portraits, though a majestic and spiritual quality also comes forward, calling to mind totems and religious iconography. A softness and warmth emanates from the colors and folds of the cloth. Edmonds exhibits these portraits on a larger-than-life, monumental scale, implying both nobility and strength, while also subtly undermining the grandiosity by printing on delicate, flowing silk.

Together, however, they form a montage made from the artifacts of history and bear upon the spirit of the times in a way that could not be accomplished by a direct or literal treatment. The montage needs to be activated with reflection.

Students in a studio class taught by Professors Sho and Morris will continue to transform the exhibition in two additional phases, opening on October 18 and November 16 respectively.

The exhibition is part of a larger program at Syracuse University and other locations in the city that centers around a visit in October of one survivor from Hiroshima, Keiko Ogura. Ms. Ogura was eight years old when the bomb fell, and she has since become the official A-bomb storyteller for the city of Hiroshima and tireless advocate for peace and nuclear nonproliferation issues that have gained an unexpected urgency in recent months.

Still the One: Douglas Lloyd Makes Portraits of Women Making Change the Old-Fashioned Way
ArtRage Gallery

Price: Free
ArtRage Gallery
505 Hawley Ave., Syracuse

For this exhibition, ArtRage sought out local elder women activists; all are 80 years or older. "Still the One" addresses urgent questions: what exactly is "activism" and where do we find it? What and who have we lost sight of? What endures? What will get us safely home again? We are seeking the wisdom of these elders in a troubled and urgent moment, going back to the source or back to the well; seeking to recognize those who persisted and endured and made a difference.

Twenty-six Central New York women were selected to be honored in this way: Arlene Abend, Pat Bergan, Carol Berrigan, Dolores Brule, Joan N. Burstyn, Marjorie Dey Carter, Ruth Johnson Colvin, Amy Doherty, Lula Donald, Jane Feld, Annette Guisbond, Geneva Hayden, Fumiyo (Miyo) Hirano, Charlotte (Chuckie) Holstein, Joyce Homan, Joyce Jones, Martha Holly Loew, Marian Miller, Nancy Sullivan Murray, Julienne Oldfield, Frances M. Parks, Dorothy (Dotty) Pearl, Margaret Rusk, Betty Bone Schiess, Ann Tiffany, and Mary Ann Zeppetello.

A photographer for 25 years, Douglas Lloyd has focused on wet plate processing since 2014. Wet plate collodion photography was invented in 1851 and widely revived in recent years for the detail and loveliness of its images. "Still the One" finds a perfect fit between method and subject; one which values age and history.

Jill Lepore
University Lectures

Price: Free
Hendricks Chapel
Syracuse University, Syracuse

Jill Lepore is the David Woods Kemper '41 Professor of American History at Harvard University and a staff writer at the New Yorker. Among her publications is the New York Times Best Seller The Secret History of Wonder Woman (Knopf, 2014), winner of the 2015 American History Book Prize. Her most recent book is Joe Gould's Teeth (Knopf, 2016). She is currently writing a history of the United States.

Lepore has been contributing to The New Yorker since 2005, writing about American history, law, literature and politics. Three of her books derive from her New Yorker essays: The Mansion of Happiness: A History of Life and Death (Knopf, 2012), a finalist for the Carnegie Medal for Excellence in Nonfiction; The Story of America: Essays on Origins (Princeton, 2012), shortlisted for the PEN Literary Award for the Art of the Essay; and The Whites of Their Eyes: The Tea Party's Revolution and the Battle for American History (Princeton, 2010), a Times Book Review Editors' Choice.

Her earlier work includes a trilogy of books that together constitute a political history of early America: The Name of War: King Philip's War and the Origins of American Identity (Knopf, 1998), winner of the Bancroft Prize, the Ralph Waldo Emerson Award and the Berkshire Prize; New York Burning: Liberty, Slavery and Conspiracy in Eighteenth-Century Manhattan (Knopf, 2005), winner of the Anisfield-Wolf Award for the best nonfiction book on race and a finalist for the Pulitzer Prize; and Book of Ages: The Life and Opinions of Jane Franklin (Knopf, 2013), TIME's Best Nonfiction Book of the Year, winner of the Mark Lynton History Prize and a finalist for the 2013 National Book Award for Nonfiction.

In addition to The New Yorker, Lepore's essays and reviews have appeared in The New York Times, the Times Literary Supplement, the Journal of American History, Foreign Affairs, the Yale Law Journal, American Scholar and the American Quarterly. They have been translated into Chinese, French, German, Italian, Japanese, Latvian, Portuguese, Spanish and Swedish, and have also been widely anthologized, including in collections of the best legal writing and the best technology writing.

Lepore joined Harvard's history department in 2003 and was chair of the history and literature program in 2005-10, 2012 and 2014. In 2012, she was named Harvard College Professor, a recognition of distinction in undergraduate teaching. Since 2015, she has been an affiliated faculty member at the Harvard Law School. Much of Lepore's scholarship explores absences and asymmetries of evidence in the historical record, with a particular emphasis on the histories and technologies of evidence and of privacy. A prize-winning professor, she teaches classes in evidence, historical methods, the humanities and American political history.

In 2014, Lepore was elected to the American Academy of Arts and Sciences and to the American Philosophical Society. She is a past president of the Society of American Historians and a former commissioner of the Smithsonian's National Portrait Gallery.

"Phase Changes: Gilmpses of the Diaspora" is an exhibition designed to highlight the energy and dynamism of the CFAC permanent collection. Much like phases of matter, art of the African Diaspora has evolved to reflect changing social and cultural landscapes through many generations of artists. For example, one can observe water condensing from vapor to a liquid and finally to ice, and know that the end result is still the same compound. Like water, one can note the significant differences between these works of art and recognize that each still embodies the essential components and spirit of African Diasporan art.

John Edmonds: Anonymous
Light Work Gallery

Light Work Gallery
316 Waverly Ave., Syracuse University, Syracuse

In his exhibition, Anonymous, John Edmonds combines two distinct series of portraits, both of which conceal the identities of their subjects. The first series comprises striking formal studies of individuals wearing hoods on the street, photographed from behind. We can quickly read this suite of images as a statement on the unjust death of Trayvon Martin and how individuals of color face issues of racism, safety, and injustice in systemic ways. "All the work that I make is from a very personal place," says Edmonds of his process. "It starts with me." Edmonds further embeds himself in this work by photographing his subjects wearing his own hoodies and jackets. With little visual clues to guide us, we may only learn from the artist that the obscured individuals in fact vary in race, gender, and age.

In contrast to the charged public space that Edmonds considers with these pictures, a second series of portraits celebrates blackness and beauty through private and sensual pictures of men wearing du-rags. Once again, Edmonds photographs his subjects from directly behind them. We can trace the du-rag's origin to the head-wraps worn by female slaves during the antebellum period, and later used to preserve hairstyles, but today both men and women wear du-rags as a symbol asserting cultural pride. A melancholy underlies these portraits, though a majestic and spiritual quality also comes forward, calling to mind totems and religious iconography. A softness and warmth emanates from the colors and folds of the cloth. Edmonds exhibits these portraits on a larger-than-life, monumental scale, implying both nobility and strength, while also subtly undermining the grandiosity by printing on delicate, flowing silk.

Meant to Be Shared: Selections from the Arthur Ross Collection of European Prints at Yale University Art Gallery
SU Art Galleries

Price: Free
SU Art Galleries, Shaffer Art Building
Syracuse University, Syracuse

Beginning in the late 1970s, philanthropist Arthur Ross (1910-2007) avidly collected for his eponymous foundation works of art by some of the most renowned printmakers of the last several centuries. The Arthur Ross Collection eventually came to comprise more than 1,200 17th- to 20th-century Italian, Spanish, and French prints of exceptional quality. Highlights include works by Francisco Goya, the first artist whom Ross collected; Giovanni Battista Piranesi's views of 18th-century and ancient Rome, which reflect Ross's love of classicism and the Eternal City; and Édouard Manet's illustrations for Edgar Allan Poe's famous poem The Raven.

From the collection's early years, The Arthur Ross Foundation frequently lent to academic institutions, museums, and cultural organizations, such that for three decades, some portion of the collection was accessible to the public.

Organized by the Yale University Art Gallery, and made possible by the Ross Foundation, Syracuse University Art Galleries is the final venue for this touring exhibition.

"Americans in Venice: Late 19th and Early 20th Century Prints," curated by SUArt Galleries director Domenic Iacono, presents six prints by James McNeill Whistler from this period, placing them alongside the work of other Americans who were practicing in Italy in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. The juxtaposition of these works allows the viewer to appreciate Whistler's innovations and his effect on the artists who followed him. Artists such as Mortimer Menpes, Frank Duveneck, Otto Bacher, and Joseph Pennell owe much to Whistler's innovative style and approach and, in turn, their work had an impact on the artists who made prints of Venice during the 20th century.

That Day Now: Shadows Cast by Hiroshima
Everson Museum of Art

Everson Museum of Art
401 Harrison St., Syracuse

A changing project room of curated objects and original works

On August 6, 1945, the United States dropped an atomic bomb on Hiroshima, Japan, killing as many as 200,000 people, severely injuring countless more, and immediately raising the specter, still with us, of total annihilation. Three days later Nagasaki, Japan, suffered the same fate. The impact of these bombings on the way we view the world cannot be understated. Historian Robert Jay Lifton has written: "You cannot understand the twentieth century without Hiroshima."

Yet, how exactly do we regard Hiroshima (understood not only as referring collectively to both the bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, but also all such possible catastrophes to come), particularly as it fades in cultural memory? How can we find its present urgency? This exhibition is one humble attempt to grapple with this difficult question. It takes the form of a project room that will undergo three transformations between August 19 and November 26.

For the first phase of the exhibition (August 19-October 18), Syracuse University Professors Yutaka Sho, Susannah Sayler, and Edward Morris have curated images and objects from Syracuse University and Everson collections that were created in 1945, the year that bombs were dropped on Hiroshima and Nagasaki. None of these images and objects were made with Hiroshima specifically in mind. Some of them relate directly to the war; some of them do not. Together, however, they form a montage made from the artifacts of history and bear upon the spirit of the times in a way that could not be accomplished by a direct or literal treatment. The montage needs to be activated with reflection.

Students in a studio class taught by Professors Sho and Morris will continue to transform the exhibition in two additional phases, opening on October 18 and November 16 respectively.

The exhibition is part of a larger program at Syracuse University and other locations in the city that centers around a visit in October of one survivor from Hiroshima, Keiko Ogura. Ms. Ogura was eight years old when the bomb fell, and she has since become the official A-bomb storyteller for the city of Hiroshima and tireless advocate for peace and nuclear nonproliferation issues that have gained an unexpected urgency in recent months.

In 2016, Syracuse University hired Pentagram, the world's largest independent design consultancy, to create a new visual identity for the 21st century. When it was discovered that there was a unique connection between the University and Frederic W. Goudy, one of America's foremost type designers, and that the Special Collections Research Center was in possession of original Goudy type matrices, the decision was made to incorporate these original artifacts into the project.

"Just Our Type" highlights the new Sherman Book typeface, developed from Goudy's original design by Chester Jenkins of Village Type Foundry, the cornerstone of the University's new brand identity. Through documentary video, didactic timelines and displays, and examples of original Goudy artifacts from the University's Special Collections, this exhibition explores the elements typography through the lens of Syracuse's own signature typeface.

For this exhibition, ArtRage sought out local elder women activists; all are 80 years or older. "Still the One" addresses urgent questions: what exactly is "activism" and where do we find it? What and who have we lost sight of? What endures? What will get us safely home again? We are seeking the wisdom of these elders in a troubled and urgent moment, going back to the source or back to the well; seeking to recognize those who persisted and endured and made a difference.

Twenty-six Central New York women were selected to be honored in this way: Arlene Abend, Pat Bergan, Carol Berrigan, Dolores Brule, Joan N. Burstyn, Marjorie Dey Carter, Ruth Johnson Colvin, Amy Doherty, Lula Donald, Jane Feld, Annette Guisbond, Geneva Hayden, Fumiyo (Miyo) Hirano, Charlotte (Chuckie) Holstein, Joyce Homan, Joyce Jones, Martha Holly Loew, Marian Miller, Nancy Sullivan Murray, Julienne Oldfield, Frances M. Parks, Dorothy (Dotty) Pearl, Margaret Rusk, Betty Bone Schiess, Ann Tiffany, and Mary Ann Zeppetello.

A photographer for 25 years, Douglas Lloyd has focused on wet plate processing since 2014. Wet plate collodion photography was invented in 1851 and widely revived in recent years for the detail and loveliness of its images. "Still the One" finds a perfect fit between method and subject; one which values age and history.

Frost Nixon
Central New York Playhouse
Justin Polly, director

Price: $20
CNY Playhouse
Shoppingtown Mall, Entrance No. 4 (adjacent to parking garage), Dewitt

British talk-show host David Frost has become a lowbrow laughing-stock. Richard M. Nixon has just resigned the United States presidency in total disgrace over Vietnam and the Watergate scandal. Determined to resurrect his career, Frost risks everything on a series of in-depth interviews in order to extract an apology from Nixon. The cagey Nixon, however, is equally bent on redeeming himself in his nation's eyes. In the television age, image is king, and both men are desperate to out talk and upstage each other as the cameras roll. The result is the interview that sealed a president's legacy.
