Hiding in Plain Sight
Community Folk Art Center

Community Folk Art Center
805 E. Genesee St., Syracuse

In an age where judgement is shaped by "alternative facts," the artworks in "Hiding in Plain Sight" do not attempt to offer any absolute truths or solutions, because the truth is unimaginable.

"Hiding in Plain Sight" features the work of Syracuse University's 2018 MFA candidates from the College of Visual and Performing Arts' School of Art and Department of Transmedia. The artworks represent the culmination of a three-year period of critical investigation and introspection, marked by a new, self-led shift toward interdisciplinary experimentation. The result is an array of artworks spanning a wide range of mediums and forms that blur the boundaries between traditional modes of art-making, and through their process, material, and staging, subvert our perception of reality.

Curated by Shehab Awad, the M.F.A. exhibition is divided among three Syracuse University exhibition spaces and features 31 artists. The participating venues include SUArt Galleries, Point of Contact Gallery, and Community Folk Art Center.

Karolina Karlic: Rubberlands
Light Work Gallery

Price: Free
Light Work Gallery
316 Waverly Ave., Syracuse University, Syracuse

Karolina Karlic's "Rubberlands" is an ongoing photographic survey that maps the social and ecological impacts of rubber manufacturing. Following the trajectory of the artist's earlier work exploring the automobile industry in Michigan, "Rubberlands" proceeds from Midwest cities like Detroit and Akron, Ohio — once auto capitals of the world and now entry points for commodities through globalized networks. Connecting the company archives of Henry Ford, Goodyear, Goodrich, General Tire, and Firestone, Karlic traces the evolution of an industry that relies heavily on outsourcing of the Hevea brasiliensis (Amazonian rubber tree). Her photographic fieldwork in Brazil has taken her to manufacturing plants in Salvador and Itaparica, Michelin rubber plantations in the Atlantic forest, a fisherman's village on the coastal rivers of Itubera in Bahia, and the vestiges of Fordlândia, Henry Ford's planned community in the Amazon.

Karlic reveals threatened landscapes, sites of reforestation, and working factories against the backdrop of their surrounding communities — scenes where living things are transformed into assets and removed from their lifeworlds to supply the demands of capital. By weaving together historical archives and contemporary renderings of environs that production has largely shaped, Karlic moves beyond capturing a static place and time, instead configuring a dynamic space for contemplating the inextricable social and personal bonds that surround labor and natural resources. Here, she invites the viewer into a new imaginary where historical consciousness is critical in reflecting on our relationship to consumption.

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.

Jeff Donaldson: Dig
Everson Museum of Art

401 Harrison St., Syracuse

This exhibition, the first museum retrospective of American artist Jeff Donaldson (1932-2004), explores four decades of the artist's career, spanning from his activist roots in Chicago as a founding member of the AfriCOBRA movement to his influence on future generations of artists as a professor at Howard University. Donaldson's work is an amalgamation of energetic colors, intricate patterns, and African iconography that celebrates the history of African art and the roots of black culture. Featuring paintings, prints, and mixed media works, the exhibition reflects on Donaldson's deep belief in the responsibility of an artist to create work that is both socially relevant and visually striking, as well as his tireless fight for equality and pride in his heritage.

Hiding in Plain Sight
Point of Contact Gallery

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

In an age where judgement is shaped by "alternative facts," the artworks in "Hiding in Plain Sight" do not attempt to offer any absolute truths or solutions, because the truth is unimaginable.

"Hiding in Plain Sight" features the work of Syracuse University's 2018 MFA candidates from the College of Visual and Performing Arts' School of Art and Department of Transmedia. The artworks represent the culmination of a three-year period of critical investigation and introspection, marked by a new, self-led shift toward interdisciplinary experimentation. The result is an array of artworks spanning a wide range of mediums and forms that blur the boundaries between traditional modes of art-making, and through their process, material, and staging, subvert our perception of reality.

Curated by Shehab Awad, curator of exhibitions and programs at the Institute of Arab and Islamic Art in New York City, the MFA exhibition is divided among three Syracuse University exhibition spaces and features 31 artists. The participating venues include SUArt Galleries, Point of Contact Gallery, and Community Folk Art Center.

The Point of Contact exhibit features the work Eric Charlton, Joan Farrenkopf, Marilyn Koch, Jo Yu Lee, Katie Levesque, and Luxin Zhang.

Featuring a diverse array of paintings, sculptures, video and installations, "Hiding in Plain Sight" represents the culmination of a three-year period of critical investigation and introspection, marked by a significant, self-led shift toward multidisciplinary experimentation. The result is a collection of works which, through their staging and materiality, radicalize traditional modes of art-making and subvert our perception of space and reality.

Within Our Gates: Site and Memory in the American Landscape, the Paintings of Keith Morris Washington
ArtRage Gallery

Price: Free
ArtRage Gallery
505 Hawley Ave., Syracuse

The practice of human sacrifice, known as lynching, has been carried out openly, as a public social ritual, in the United States from the very founding of the Republic. "Within Our Gates: Site and Memory in the American Landscape" is designed to inform a broad audience about this phenomenon of lynching as human sacrifice within the context of the landscape. The term lynching faded from popular usage with the advent of the 1960s civil rights movement. However, death by lynching is still exercised today as evidenced by the murders of James Byrd, Jr., Matthew Shepherd, Billy Jack Gaither, and Raynard Johnson. Only the taboo nature of this ritual has changed. — excerpt from Keith Morris Washington's artist statement

Karolina Karlic: Rubberlands
Light Work Gallery

Price: Free
Light Work Gallery
316 Waverly Ave., Syracuse University, Syracuse

Karolina Karlic's "Rubberlands" is an ongoing photographic survey that maps the social and ecological impacts of rubber manufacturing. Following the trajectory of the artist's earlier work exploring the automobile industry in Michigan, "Rubberlands" proceeds from Midwest cities like Detroit and Akron, Ohio — once auto capitals of the world and now entry points for commodities through globalized networks. Connecting the company archives of Henry Ford, Goodyear, Goodrich, General Tire, and Firestone, Karlic traces the evolution of an industry that relies heavily on outsourcing of the Hevea brasiliensis (Amazonian rubber tree). Her photographic fieldwork in Brazil has taken her to manufacturing plants in Salvador and Itaparica, Michelin rubber plantations in the Atlantic forest, a fisherman's village on the coastal rivers of Itubera in Bahia, and the vestiges of Fordlândia, Henry Ford's planned community in the Amazon.

Karlic reveals threatened landscapes, sites of reforestation, and working factories against the backdrop of their surrounding communities — scenes where living things are transformed into assets and removed from their lifeworlds to supply the demands of capital. By weaving together historical archives and contemporary renderings of environs that production has largely shaped, Karlic moves beyond capturing a static place and time, instead configuring a dynamic space for contemplating the inextricable social and personal bonds that surround labor and natural resources. Here, she invites the viewer into a new imaginary where historical consciousness is critical in reflecting on our relationship to consumption.

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.

Defying Gravity: The Songs of Stephen Schwartz
Rarely Done Productions

Jazz Central
441 E. Washington St., Syracuse

What do the shows Godspell, Pippin, The Magic Show, and Wicked, and the Disney movies Hunchback of Notre Dame and Enchanted have in common? Music written by Stephen Schwartz, songwriting legend, 50-year veteran of Broadway and the silver screen, with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, and membership in the Theatre Hall of Fame and Songwriters Hall of Fame. Add this to his 3 Oscars, 4 Grammys, and 4 Drama Desk Awards, and his contribution to the theater arts becomes, arguably, second to none among America's active contributors to the Great American Songbook.

Local theatergoers will get their first-ever chance to experience the very best of Schwartz's oeuvre with Defying Gravity, titled after his signature tune from Wicked as well as his recent biography.

The production will benefit Helping Hounds Dog Rescue, a non-profit organization that works to find permanent homes for rescue dogs in the Central New York area.

Hiding in Plain Sight
Community Folk Art Center

Community Folk Art Center
805 E. Genesee St., Syracuse

In an age where judgement is shaped by "alternative facts," the artworks in "Hiding in Plain Sight" do not attempt to offer any absolute truths or solutions, because the truth is unimaginable.

"Hiding in Plain Sight" features the work of Syracuse University's 2018 MFA candidates from the College of Visual and Performing Arts' School of Art and Department of Transmedia. The artworks represent the culmination of a three-year period of critical investigation and introspection, marked by a new, self-led shift toward interdisciplinary experimentation. The result is an array of artworks spanning a wide range of mediums and forms that blur the boundaries between traditional modes of art-making, and through their process, material, and staging, subvert our perception of reality.

Curated by Shehab Awad, the M.F.A. exhibition is divided among three Syracuse University exhibition spaces and features 31 artists. The participating venues include SUArt Galleries, Point of Contact Gallery, and Community Folk Art Center.

Karolina Karlic: Rubberlands
Light Work Gallery

Price: Free
Light Work Gallery
316 Waverly Ave., Syracuse University, Syracuse

Karolina Karlic's "Rubberlands" is an ongoing photographic survey that maps the social and ecological impacts of rubber manufacturing. Following the trajectory of the artist's earlier work exploring the automobile industry in Michigan, "Rubberlands" proceeds from Midwest cities like Detroit and Akron, Ohio — once auto capitals of the world and now entry points for commodities through globalized networks. Connecting the company archives of Henry Ford, Goodyear, Goodrich, General Tire, and Firestone, Karlic traces the evolution of an industry that relies heavily on outsourcing of the Hevea brasiliensis (Amazonian rubber tree). Her photographic fieldwork in Brazil has taken her to manufacturing plants in Salvador and Itaparica, Michelin rubber plantations in the Atlantic forest, a fisherman's village on the coastal rivers of Itubera in Bahia, and the vestiges of Fordlândia, Henry Ford's planned community in the Amazon.

Karlic reveals threatened landscapes, sites of reforestation, and working factories against the backdrop of their surrounding communities — scenes where living things are transformed into assets and removed from their lifeworlds to supply the demands of capital. By weaving together historical archives and contemporary renderings of environs that production has largely shaped, Karlic moves beyond capturing a static place and time, instead configuring a dynamic space for contemplating the inextricable social and personal bonds that surround labor and natural resources. Here, she invites the viewer into a new imaginary where historical consciousness is critical in reflecting on our relationship to consumption.

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.

Within Our Gates: Site and Memory in the American Landscape, the Paintings of Keith Morris Washington
ArtRage Gallery

Price: Free
ArtRage Gallery
505 Hawley Ave., Syracuse

The practice of human sacrifice, known as lynching, has been carried out openly, as a public social ritual, in the United States from the very founding of the Republic. "Within Our Gates: Site and Memory in the American Landscape" is designed to inform a broad audience about this phenomenon of lynching as human sacrifice within the context of the landscape. The term lynching faded from popular usage with the advent of the 1960s civil rights movement. However, death by lynching is still exercised today as evidenced by the murders of James Byrd, Jr., Matthew Shepherd, Billy Jack Gaither, and Raynard Johnson. Only the taboo nature of this ritual has changed. — excerpt from Keith Morris Washington's artist statement

Crouse Hinds Concert Theater, Mulroy Civic Center

In Puccini's Madama Butterfly, set in turn-of-the-century Japan, 15-year-old geisha Cio-Cio-San renounces her occupation and religion so that she may marry the American naval officer B. F. Pinkerton. Following their wedding night, Pinkerton must leave but promises to return "when the robins build their nests." Three long years pass and Pinkerton does indeed return, but not to re-unite with the ever-faithful Butterfly. Instead, he wishes to take from her the last bit of happiness she possesses. Soprano Toni Marie Palmertree, having debuted the role of Butterfly at San Francisco Opera in 2016, will reprise the role for Syracuse Opera. CNY native Dinyar Vania returns to play Pinkerton, with baritone Troy Cook (Eugene Onegin) as Sharpless, the American Consul. Glenn Lewis of Pittsburgh Opera will conduct, with Alison Moritz making her Syracuse Opera debut as stage director. Musial theater aficionados will recognize the plot of Madama Butterfly as the inspiration for Claude-Michael Schönberg's Miss Saigon.

Chess
Central New York Playhouse

Price: $28
CNY Playhouse
Shoppingtown Mall, Entrance No. 4 (adjacent to parking garage), Dewitt

Chess is a musical, with music by Benny Andersson and Björn Ulvaeus of the pop group ABBA, and with lyrics by Tim Rice. The story involves a politically driven, Cold War-era chess tournament between two men—an American grandmaster and a Soviet grandmaster—and their fight over a woman who manages one and falls in love with the other.

Chess was a significant and powerful piece of music theater for its time as it allegorically reflected the Cold War tensions present in the 1980s, with the show embodying the government manipulations and paranoia, and the xenophobic attitudes present in the political climate of the time. The musical has been referred to as a metaphor for the whole Cold War, with the insinuation being made that the Cold War is itself a manipulative game. Released and staged at the height of the strong anti-communist agenda that came to be known as the "Reagan Doctrine," Chess played a powerful role in addressing and satirizing the hostile political atmosphere of the 1980s.

Jazz Central
441 E. Washington St., Syracuse

What do the shows Godspell, Pippin, The Magic Show, and Wicked, and the Disney movies Hunchback of Notre Dame and Enchanted have in common? Music written by Stephen Schwartz, songwriting legend, 50-year veteran of Broadway and the silver screen, with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, and membership in the Theatre Hall of Fame and Songwriters Hall of Fame. Add this to his 3 Oscars, 4 Grammys, and 4 Drama Desk Awards, and his contribution to the theater arts becomes, arguably, second to none among America's active contributors to the Great American Songbook.

Local theatergoers will get their first-ever chance to experience the very best of Schwartz's oeuvre with Defying Gravity, titled after his signature tune from Wicked as well as his recent biography.

The production will benefit Helping Hounds Dog Rescue, a non-profit organization that works to find permanent homes for rescue dogs in the Central New York area.

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.

Hiding in Plain Sight
SU Art Galleries

SU Art Galleries, Shaffer Art Building
Syracuse University, Syracuse

In an age where judgement is shaped by "alternative facts," the artworks in "Hiding in Plain Sight" do not attempt to offer any absolute truths or solutions, because the truth is unimaginable.

"Hiding in Plain Sight" features the work of Syracuse University's 2018 MFA candidates from the College of Visual and Performing Arts' School of Art and Department of Transmedia. The artworks represent the culmination of a three-year period of critical investigation and introspection, marked by a new, self-led shift toward interdisciplinary experimentation. The result is an array of artworks spanning a wide range of mediums and forms that blur the boundaries between traditional modes of art-making, and through their process, material, and staging, subvert our perception of reality.

Curated by Shehab Awad, the M.F.A. exhibition is divided among three Syracuse University exhibition spaces and features 31 artists. The participating venues include SUArt Galleries, Point of Contact Gallery, and Community Folk Art Center.

Within Our Gates: Site and Memory in the American Landscape, the Paintings of Keith Morris Washington
ArtRage Gallery

Price: Free
ArtRage Gallery
505 Hawley Ave., Syracuse

The practice of human sacrifice, known as lynching, has been carried out openly, as a public social ritual, in the United States from the very founding of the Republic. "Within Our Gates: Site and Memory in the American Landscape" is designed to inform a broad audience about this phenomenon of lynching as human sacrifice within the context of the landscape. The term lynching faded from popular usage with the advent of the 1960s civil rights movement. However, death by lynching is still exercised today as evidenced by the murders of James Byrd, Jr., Matthew Shepherd, Billy Jack Gaither, and Raynard Johnson. Only the taboo nature of this ritual has changed. — excerpt from Keith Morris Washington's artist statement

Karolina Karlic: Rubberlands
Light Work Gallery

Price: Free
Light Work Gallery
316 Waverly Ave., Syracuse University, Syracuse

Karolina Karlic's "Rubberlands" is an ongoing photographic survey that maps the social and ecological impacts of rubber manufacturing. Following the trajectory of the artist's earlier work exploring the automobile industry in Michigan, "Rubberlands" proceeds from Midwest cities like Detroit and Akron, Ohio — once auto capitals of the world and now entry points for commodities through globalized networks. Connecting the company archives of Henry Ford, Goodyear, Goodrich, General Tire, and Firestone, Karlic traces the evolution of an industry that relies heavily on outsourcing of the Hevea brasiliensis (Amazonian rubber tree). Her photographic fieldwork in Brazil has taken her to manufacturing plants in Salvador and Itaparica, Michelin rubber plantations in the Atlantic forest, a fisherman's village on the coastal rivers of Itubera in Bahia, and the vestiges of Fordlândia, Henry Ford's planned community in the Amazon.

Karlic reveals threatened landscapes, sites of reforestation, and working factories against the backdrop of their surrounding communities — scenes where living things are transformed into assets and removed from their lifeworlds to supply the demands of capital. By weaving together historical archives and contemporary renderings of environs that production has largely shaped, Karlic moves beyond capturing a static place and time, instead configuring a dynamic space for contemplating the inextricable social and personal bonds that surround labor and natural resources. Here, she invites the viewer into a new imaginary where historical consciousness is critical in reflecting on our relationship to consumption.

Chess
Central New York Playhouse

Shoppingtown Mall, Entrance No. 4 (adjacent to parking garage), Dewitt

Chess is a musical, with music by Benny Andersson and Björn Ulvaeus of the pop group ABBA, and with lyrics by Tim Rice. The story involves a politically driven, Cold War-era chess tournament between two men—an American grandmaster and a Soviet grandmaster—and their fight over a woman who manages one and falls in love with the other.

Chess was a significant and powerful piece of music theater for its time as it allegorically reflected the Cold War tensions present in the 1980s, with the show embodying the government manipulations and paranoia, and the xenophobic attitudes present in the political climate of the time. The musical has been referred to as a metaphor for the whole Cold War, with the insinuation being made that the Cold War is itself a manipulative game. Released and staged at the height of the strong anti-communist agenda that came to be known as the "Reagan Doctrine," Chess played a powerful role in addressing and satirizing the hostile political atmosphere of the 1980s.

Defying Gravity: The Songs of Stephen Schwartz
Rarely Done Productions

Jazz Central
441 E. Washington St., Syracuse

What do the shows Godspell, Pippin, The Magic Show, and Wicked, and the Disney movies Hunchback of Notre Dame and Enchanted have in common? Music written by Stephen Schwartz, songwriting legend, 50-year veteran of Broadway and the silver screen, with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, and membership in the Theatre Hall of Fame and Songwriters Hall of Fame. Add this to his 3 Oscars, 4 Grammys, and 4 Drama Desk Awards, and his contribution to the theater arts becomes, arguably, second to none among America's active contributors to the Great American Songbook.

Local theatergoers will get their first-ever chance to experience the very best of Schwartz's oeuvre with Defying Gravity, titled after his signature tune from Wicked as well as his recent biography.

The production will benefit Helping Hounds Dog Rescue, a non-profit organization that works to find permanent homes for rescue dogs in the Central New York area.

Karolina Karlic: Rubberlands
Light Work Gallery

Price: Free
Light Work Gallery
316 Waverly Ave., Syracuse University, Syracuse

Karolina Karlic's "Rubberlands" is an ongoing photographic survey that maps the social and ecological impacts of rubber manufacturing. Following the trajectory of the artist's earlier work exploring the automobile industry in Michigan, "Rubberlands" proceeds from Midwest cities like Detroit and Akron, Ohio — once auto capitals of the world and now entry points for commodities through globalized networks. Connecting the company archives of Henry Ford, Goodyear, Goodrich, General Tire, and Firestone, Karlic traces the evolution of an industry that relies heavily on outsourcing of the Hevea brasiliensis (Amazonian rubber tree). Her photographic fieldwork in Brazil has taken her to manufacturing plants in Salvador and Itaparica, Michelin rubber plantations in the Atlantic forest, a fisherman's village on the coastal rivers of Itubera in Bahia, and the vestiges of Fordlândia, Henry Ford's planned community in the Amazon.

Karlic reveals threatened landscapes, sites of reforestation, and working factories against the backdrop of their surrounding communities — scenes where living things are transformed into assets and removed from their lifeworlds to supply the demands of capital. By weaving together historical archives and contemporary renderings of environs that production has largely shaped, Karlic moves beyond capturing a static place and time, instead configuring a dynamic space for contemplating the inextricable social and personal bonds that surround labor and natural resources. Here, she invites the viewer into a new imaginary where historical consciousness is critical in reflecting on our relationship to consumption.

Madama Butterfly

Crouse Hinds Concert Theater, Mulroy Civic Center

In Puccini's Madama Butterfly, set in turn-of-the-century Japan, 15-year-old geisha Cio-Cio-San renounces her occupation and religion so that she may marry the American naval officer B. F. Pinkerton. Following their wedding night, Pinkerton must leave but promises to return "when the robins build their nests." Three long years pass and Pinkerton does indeed return, but not to re-unite with the ever-faithful Butterfly. Instead, he wishes to take from her the last bit of happiness she possesses. Soprano Toni Marie Palmertree, having debuted the role of Butterfly at San Francisco Opera in 2016, will reprise the role for Syracuse Opera. CNY native Dinyar Vania returns to play Pinkerton, with baritone Troy Cook (Eugene Onegin) as Sharpless, the American Consul. Glenn Lewis of Pittsburgh Opera will conduct, with Alison Moritz making her Syracuse Opera debut as stage director. Musial theater aficionados will recognize the plot of Madama Butterfly as the inspiration for Claude-Michael Schönberg's Miss Saigon.

Robert G. Searle, director

Price: $25
CNY Playhouse
Shoppingtown Mall, Entrance No. 4 (adjacent to parking garage), Dewitt

Chess is a musical, with music by Benny Andersson and Björn Ulvaeus of the pop group ABBA, and with lyrics by Tim Rice. The story involves a politically driven, Cold War-era chess tournament between two men—an American grandmaster and a Soviet grandmaster—and their fight over a woman who manages one and falls in love with the other.

Chess was a significant and powerful piece of music theater for its time as it allegorically reflected the Cold War tensions present in the 1980s, with the show embodying the government manipulations and paranoia, and the xenophobic attitudes present in the political climate of the time. The musical has been referred to as a metaphor for the whole Cold War, with the insinuation being made that the Cold War is itself a manipulative game. Released and staged at the height of the strong anti-communist agenda that came to be known as the "Reagan Doctrine," Chess played a powerful role in addressing and satirizing the hostile political atmosphere of the 1980s.

Karolina Karlic: Rubberlands
Light Work Gallery

Price: Free
Light Work Gallery
316 Waverly Ave., Syracuse University, Syracuse

Karolina Karlic's "Rubberlands" is an ongoing photographic survey that maps the social and ecological impacts of rubber manufacturing. Following the trajectory of the artist's earlier work exploring the automobile industry in Michigan, "Rubberlands" proceeds from Midwest cities like Detroit and Akron, Ohio — once auto capitals of the world and now entry points for commodities through globalized networks. Connecting the company archives of Henry Ford, Goodyear, Goodrich, General Tire, and Firestone, Karlic traces the evolution of an industry that relies heavily on outsourcing of the Hevea brasiliensis (Amazonian rubber tree). Her photographic fieldwork in Brazil has taken her to manufacturing plants in Salvador and Itaparica, Michelin rubber plantations in the Atlantic forest, a fisherman's village on the coastal rivers of Itubera in Bahia, and the vestiges of Fordlândia, Henry Ford's planned community in the Amazon.

Karlic reveals threatened landscapes, sites of reforestation, and working factories against the backdrop of their surrounding communities — scenes where living things are transformed into assets and removed from their lifeworlds to supply the demands of capital. By weaving together historical archives and contemporary renderings of environs that production has largely shaped, Karlic moves beyond capturing a static place and time, instead configuring a dynamic space for contemplating the inextricable social and personal bonds that surround labor and natural resources. Here, she invites the viewer into a new imaginary where historical consciousness is critical in reflecting on our relationship to consumption.

Evan Osnos
Rosamond Gifford Lecture Series

Crouse Hinds Concert Theater, Mulroy Civic Center
411 Montgomery St., Syracuse

New Yorker staff writer and National Book Award-winning author Evan Osnos specializes in politics and foreign affairs, spanning the U.S., the Middle East, East Asia, and China. He won the National Book Award in 2014 for Age of Ambition: Chasing Fortune, Truth, and Faith in the New China.

Osnos has covered pressing American concerns, from modern conservatism and gun control, to the Flint Water Crisis and the 2016 presidential election. He forecasted the implications of a Trump presidency in his extensive New Yorker piece, "President Trump's First Term," one of the magazine's most-read articles of the year.

Based on his eight years living in Beijing, Age of Ambition/ is a multi-layered look at the rise of the individual in China and the clash between aspiration and authoritarianism. A Pulitzer Prize-finalist, Age of Ambition/ was called "a splendid and entertaining picture of 21st-century China" by The Wall Street Journal. The Washington Post wrote that "Osnos has portrayed and explained...this new China better than any other writer from the West or the East."

In 2003, Osnos embedded himself with the US Marines during the invasion of Iraq and spent two years as the Chicago Tribune's Middle East Correspondent. His piece "The Fallout," about the events and aftermath of the Fukushima nuclear meltdown, won a 2012 Overseas Press Club Award.

Prior to joining The New Yorker, Osnos worked as the Beijing Bureau Chief for the Chicago Tribune, where he contributed to a series on the global trade in unsafe imports that won the 2008 Pulitzer Prize for investigative reporting. He was the 2007 recipient of the Livingston Award, the nation's leading prize for young journalists, and the Asia Society's Osborn Elliott Prize for Excellence in Journalism on Asia.

"Hiding in Plain Sight" features the work of Syracuse University's 2018 MFA candidates from the College of Visual and Performing Arts' School of Art and Department of Transmedia. The artworks represent the culmination of a three-year period of critical investigation and introspection, marked by a new, self-led shift toward interdisciplinary experimentation. The result is an array of artworks spanning a wide range of mediums and forms that blur the boundaries between traditional modes of art-making, and through their process, material, and staging, subvert our perception of reality.

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.

The eight-member troupe uses everything but conventional percussion instruments—matchboxes, wooden poles, brooms, garbage cans, Zippo lighters, hubcaps—to fill the stage with magnificent rhythms. The return of the percussive hit also brings some new surprises, with some sections of the show now updated and restructured and the addition of two new full-scale routines, utilizing props like tractor tire inner tubes and paint cans. As USA Today says, "STOMP finds beautiful noises in the strangest places." Stomp. See what all the noise is about.

This exhibition, the first museum retrospective of American artist Jeff Donaldson (1932-2004), explores four decades of the artist's career, spanning from his activist roots in Chicago as a founding member of the AfriCOBRA movement to his influence on future generations of artists as a professor at Howard University. Donaldson's work is an amalgamation of energetic colors, intricate patterns, and African iconography that celebrates the history of African art and the roots of black culture. Featuring paintings, prints, and mixed media works, the exhibition reflects on Donaldson's deep belief in the responsibility of an artist to create work that is both socially relevant and visually striking, as well as his tireless fight for equality and pride in his heritage.

Within Our Gates: Site and Memory in the American Landscape, the Paintings of Keith Morris Washington
ArtRage Gallery

Price: Free
ArtRage Gallery
505 Hawley Ave., Syracuse

The practice of human sacrifice, known as lynching, has been carried out openly, as a public social ritual, in the United States from the very founding of the Republic. "Within Our Gates: Site and Memory in the American Landscape" is designed to inform a broad audience about this phenomenon of lynching as human sacrifice within the context of the landscape. The term lynching faded from popular usage with the advent of the 1960s civil rights movement. However, death by lynching is still exercised today as evidenced by the murders of James Byrd, Jr., Matthew Shepherd, Billy Jack Gaither, and Raynard Johnson. Only the taboo nature of this ritual has changed. — excerpt from Keith Morris Washington's artist statement

One Day in the Life of Javier Antonio
La Casita Cultural Center

Price: Free
La Casita Cultural Center
109 Otisco St., Syracuse

A film by Dashel Hernández (2017, 23 minutes, Spanish with English subtitles)

Dashel is a visual artist from Camagüey, Cuba; a writer, educator, and a graduate student at the Maxwell School of Citizenship and Public Affairs (EMPA candidate) at Syracuse University. He grew up in Cuba during the late 1970s and early '80s and was caught up in the Cuban-Soviet ideological struggle of the Cold War. As a boy at school he played out his fantasies of the space race. At night, he dreamed of the snow his mother would bring back, in a tiny box, on her return from Moscow.

Fueled by the power of oral storytelling, 'One Day in the Life of Javier Antonio' is an exercise in non-resistance contemplation of childhood memories and, by extension, a generation's collective memory of a difficult time in Cuba.

Film screening will be followed by a discussion with filmmaker.

Stomp
Famous Artists Broadway Series

Landmark Theatre
362 S. Salina St., Syracuse

"Stomp" is explosive, provocative, sophisticated, sexy, utterly unique, and appeals to audiences of all ages. The international percussion sensation has garnered an armful of awards and rave reviews, and has appeared on numerous national television shows. The eight-member troupe uses everything but conventional percussion instruments—matchboxes, wooden poles, brooms, garbage cans, Zippo lighters, hubcaps—to fill the stage with magnificent rhythms. The return of the percussive hit also brings some new surprises, with some sections of the show now updated and restructured and the addition of two new full-scale routines, utilizing props like tractor tire inner tubes and paint cans. As USA Today says, "STOMP finds beautiful noises in the strangest places." Stomp. See what all the noise is about.
