Eric Gottesman: If I Could See Your Face, I Would Not Need Food (Ka Fitfitu Feetu)
Light Work Gallery

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

In 1999, artist Eric Gottesman began making portraits in Ethiopia of people with HIV. Because great stigma surrounds this disease, subjects did not allow him to photograph their faces. Over the next five years, Gottesman made these portraits of people with HIV anonymous by hiding and obscuring their faces and changing each sitter's name to protect their identity. A transcribed text from each sitter describing life with HIV in Ethiopia accompanies each image. In 2004, a woman with HIV allowed him to photograph her face for the first time and he knew the project was completed.

George Awde: Scale Without Measure
Light Work Gallery

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

George Awde's photographic work explores themes of contemporary masculinity, the male body, homosociality, and notions of physical and psychological strength, as seen through young men with whom he identifies. The men and boys whom Awde has photographed over the last 10 years include migrants to Beirut from Syria. Many are now his close friends. Through years of contact, Awde has established close relationships allowing for an intimate portrayal of the everyday. His pictures explore the way that people interact with one another, and in them one senses a longing to belong. Awde's parents fled Lebanon in the conflicts leading to the 1970s Civil War in order to pursue their futures by coming to America. This informed Awde's perspective on the world and his place in it while growing up, and now informs his practice as an artist and teacher. As the global refugee crisis escalates, and the early executive orders of a new and contentious president attempt to aggressively block refugees from entering the United States, the themes of Awde's work are evermore present.

All That Jazz: 35 Years of Syracuse Jazz Fest
Onondaga Historical Association

Onondaga Historical Association
321 Montgomery St., Syracuse

Recognizing 35 successful years of Syracuse Jazz Fest, OHA offers a visual exhibit on the history of Jazz Fest. OHA's visual exhibit will feature highlights of the musical festival, from the different venues, to music industry superstars and jazz legends, as well as some of our own homegrown musical talent.

With help from Jazz Fest founder and executive director, Frank Malfitano, the exhibit will be a walk down memory lane for some die-hard local music fans: Dizzy Gillespie's bulging cheeks while playing trumpet, Jean Luc Ponty's electrifying violin, B.B. King's guitar Lucille, Buckwheat Zydeco's accordion, Wynton Marsalis' big band style orchestra, or Kenny G's saxophone; or maybe singing to the songs of Aretha Franklin, the Doobie Brothers, Boz Scaggs, Natalie Cole, or Smokey Robinson. Whatever musical tastes exist in Central New York, Syracuse Jazz Fest has touched almost all of them.

Seen and Heard: An Active Commemoration of Women's Suffrage
Everson Museum of Art

Everson Museum of Art
401 Harrison St., Syracuse

Commemorating the 100th anniversary of the passage of women's suffrage in New York State, Seen and Heard explores the use of the arts as a catalyst for social change and features the work of nine contemporary artists as well as several works from the Everson's collection.

Through this presentation, the exhibition considers the history of social and political activism in the arts and invites visitors to participate in a timely conversation about equal rights and civic engagement. The nine artists — Mildred Beltré, Yvonne Buchanan, Cassils, Lionel Cruet, Stella Marrs, Jessica Posner, Jessica Putnam-Phillips, Kevin Snipes, and Holly Zausner — share a passion for social equality and justice, and their work builds upon the extensive history of art as a form of activism. Working in sculpture, installation, printmaking, ceramics, photography, and video, each artist explores the language and tactics of protest in both subtle and overt ways.

The men and boys whom Awde has photographed over the last 10 years include migrants to Beirut from Syria. Many are now his close friends. Through years of contact, Awde has established close relationships allowing for an intimate portrayal of the everyday. His pictures explore the way that people interact with one another, and in them one senses a longing to belong. Awde's parents fled Lebanon in the conflicts leading to the 1970s Civil War in order to pursue their futures by coming to America. This informed Awde's perspective on the world and his place in it while growing up, and now informs his practice as an artist and teacher. As the global refugee crisis escalates, and the early executive orders of a new and contentious president attempt to aggressively block refugees from entering the United States, the themes of Awde's work are evermore present.

Recognizing 35 successful years of Syracuse Jazz Fest, OHA offers a visual exhibit on the history of Jazz Fest.

With help from Jazz Fest founder and executive director, Frank Malfitano, the exhibit will be a walk down memory lane for some die-hard local music fans: Dizzy Gillespie's bulging cheeks while playing trumpet, Jean Luc Ponty's electrifying violin, B.B. King's guitar Lucille, Buckwheat Zydeco's accordion, Wynton Marsalis' big band style orchestra, or Kenny G's saxophone; or maybe singing to the songs of Aretha Franklin, the Doobie Brothers, Boz Scaggs, Natalie Cole, or Smokey Robinson. Whatever musical tastes exist in Central New York, Syracuse Jazz Fest has touched almost all of them.

Seen and Heard: An Active Commemoration of Women's Suffrage
Everson Museum of Art

Everson Museum of Art
401 Harrison St., Syracuse

Commemorating the 100th anniversary of the passage of women's suffrage in New York State, Seen and Heard explores the use of the arts as a catalyst for social change and features the work of nine contemporary artists as well as several works from the Everson's collection.

Through this presentation, the exhibition considers the history of social and political activism in the arts and invites visitors to participate in a timely conversation about equal rights and civic engagement. The nine artists — Mildred Beltré, Yvonne Buchanan, Cassils, Lionel Cruet, Stella Marrs, Jessica Posner, Jessica Putnam-Phillips, Kevin Snipes, and Holly Zausner — share a passion for social equality and justice, and their work builds upon the extensive history of art as a form of activism. Working in sculpture, installation, printmaking, ceramics, photography, and video, each artist explores the language and tactics of protest in both subtle and overt ways.

A group of friends at a Jerusalem retirement home construct a machine for self-euthanasia in order to help a terminally ill pal in a poignant, provocative dramedy. Boasting a dream cast of septuagenarian talent, a finely honed visual sense, and superbly ironic comic timing and dialogue, the pic pits the ethics of assisted suicide against the right to die with dignity. Theatrical returns in Israel should be, er, out of this world while offshore, positive word of mouth should smooth the way for this compassionate handling of inherently depressing material.

George Awde's photographic work explores themes of contemporary masculinity, the male body, homosociality, and notions of physical and psychological strength, as seen through young men with whom he identifies. The men and boys whom Awde has photographed over the last 10 years include migrants to Beirut from Syria. Many are now his close friends. Through years of contact, Awde has established close relationships allowing for an intimate portrayal of the everyday. His pictures explore the way that people interact with one another, and in them one senses a longing to belong.

Eric Gottesman: If I Could See Your Face, I Would Not Need Food (Ka Fitfitu Feetu)
Light Work Gallery

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

In 1999, artist Eric Gottesman began making portraits in Ethiopia of people with HIV. Because great stigma surrounds this disease, subjects did not allow him to photograph their faces. Over the next five years, Gottesman made these portraits of people with HIV anonymous by hiding and obscuring their faces and changing each sitter's name to protect their identity. A transcribed text from each sitter describing life with HIV in Ethiopia accompanies each image. In 2004, a woman with HIV allowed him to photograph her face for the first time and he knew the project was completed.
