Black Subjects in Modern Media Photography: Works from the George R. Rinhart Collection
SU Art Galleries

SU Art Galleries, Shaffer Art Building
Syracuse University, Syracuse

This exhibition features 145 photographs from one of the largest private collections in the nation, offering a glimpse of the complexity and paradoxes of Black visual modernity. Pictures featuring varied themes — Cities, Politics, Work, Kinship, School, Religion, Leisure, Childhood, Colonies, and Portraits — welcome viewers to consider how people, places, and practices were presented as Black subjects to mass audiences via newspapers, magazines, documentary projects, libraries, and advertising. They raise questions such as how photographs composed Black subjects? How and to what extent did Black people present themselves as subjects in settings they chose to occupy, in venues they did not control, and in regimes that rendered them subject peoples? How do titles, captions, and frames limit or alter the focus and contexts of an image? Such inquiries engage a photograph's capacity to convey meaning and invite new interpretations of what it meant to create, be, and see a modern Black subject.

Curated by Joan Bryant, associate professor of African American Studies in the College of Arts and Sciences at Syracuse University.

Please note, this exhibition includes text and photographs that document inequality, racism, and violence. Experiencing such material might be challenging for some viewers. We present it with the aim of promoting historically-informed considerations of social relations and justice.

Parking for weekend and evening visitors is in Q4 lot on College Place. Notify the attendant that you are visiting the SUArt Galleries. Parking is on a space available basis and may be restricted during events held at the Carrier Dome. If spaces are not available in Q4 the attendant will direct you to the nearest lot.

Masterpieces of 17th-Century Dutch Painting from Regional Collections
SU Art Galleries

SU Art Galleries, Shaffer Art Building
Syracuse University, Syracuse

It has been estimated that in The Netherlands over the course of the 17th century, approximately two million paintings were created. This astonishing number reflects the prosperity of the small country that was known at that time as the Dutch Republic. It may have been small compared to its European neighbors but the Dutch Republic was a major power owing to its strong economy and far-reaching mercantile activities. Needless to say, in this prosperous atmosphere painting flourished thanks to sizeable numbers of talented masters, many of whom specialized in the rendition of specific subject matter. Dutch painters portrayed their surrounding world in landscapes, portraits, still-life, and genre paintings (scenes of daily life) and they are still acclaimed today for having done so. Indeed, the ability of their seemingly unassuming yet celebrated pictures to evoke daily existence has led to the recognition of 17th-century painting as a true Golden Age of Dutch art. However, like their European counterparts, Dutch masters just as often focused their efforts on the depiction of subjects drawn from the Bible or from classical mythology.

This exhibition provides a small yet impressive sample of the fruits of their labors. Visitors to this show may not recognize all of the names of the painters whose creations are on display here. Nevertheless, their work provides a glimpse into the wide-ranging subject matter and uncompromisingly high quality of 17th-century Dutch art.

Parking for weekend and evening visitors is in Q4 lot on College Place. Notify the attendant that you are visiting the SUArt Galleries. Parking is on a space available basis and may be restricted during events held at the Carrier Dome. If spaces are not available in Q4 the attendant will direct you to the nearest lot.

Making History, Justifying Conquest: Depictions of Native Americans in American Book Company Textbooks
SU Art Galleries

SU Art Galleries, Shaffer Art Building
Syracuse University, Syracuse

As the USA rose in world power in the late 19th and early 20th centuries, a government-led emphasis emerged in promoting a national history in which the conquest of Native peoples was justified. The American Book Company, one of the largest textbook publishers of the time, played a vital role in this process, producing many textbooks that contained illustrated histories featuring Native peoples. A vast audience of impressionable, young minds encountered these textbooks which rely on images mythologizing White heroism and conveying Native savagery and primitivism through scenes such as Daniel Carter Beard's The Perils and Pleasures of the Wilderness—Daniel Boone, circa 1900. These books reflected and shaped widespread rhetoric of Euro-American superiority, which sought to justify the colonization of Native lands and the conquest of Native peoples. This exhibition deconstructs the versions of history and Native peoples presented by the illustrations through four prominent themes found in ABC publications: contact, the construction of history, assimilation and violence, and the vanishing Indian. To further explain the different views, quotes from Native artists, writers, and scholars are included in each section. The authoritative, educational messages communicated in the American Book Company textbooks ensured a lasting legacy for dominant narratives of American history that still marginalize Native peoples today. However, by calling attention to these images and placing them in a more accurate context, this exhibition asks us to consider how images are used and misused to construct historical narratives.

Parking for weekend and evening visitors is in Q4 lot on College Place. Notify the attendant that you are visiting the SUArt Galleries. Parking is on a space available basis and may be restricted during events held at the Carrier Dome. If spaces are not available in Q4 the attendant will direct you to the nearest lot.

Founded in 1923, the Scholastic Art Awards are the nation's longest-running and most prestigious educational initiative supporting student achievement in the arts. Every year, students across the country in grades 7-12 are invited to enter original works of art in regional competitions. This year, over 2,500 students representing over 100 Central New York schools submitted 5,673 works of art, which were then judged by professional artists, educators, and photographers. The judges award first place (Gold Key), second place (Silver Key), honorable mentions, and special award honorees. Gold Key winners move on to compete at the national level, while a small selection of the Silver Key winners are displayed at the Everson.

Renegades and Reformers: American Art Pottery
Everson Museum of Art

Everson Museum of Art
401 Harrison St., Syracuse

Since acquiring its first works by Adelaide Alsop Robineau in 1916, the Everson Museum of Art has built one of the finest collections of art pottery in the world. "Renegades and Reformers" revolves around two common personality types among potters: the "renegades" who embarked on highly personal artistic quests that pushed clay and glaze to their limits, and the "reformers," whose modern designs and social attitudes pushed back against Victorian mores.

A Legacy of Firsts: The Everson Collects
Everson Museum of Art

Everson Museum of Art
401 Harrison St., Syracuse

In 1911, the Syracuse Museum of Fine Arts (known today as the Everson) made history as the first museum in the country to declare that it would focus on collecting works made by American artists. This decision, implemented by Museum Director Fernando Carter, was the first of many made by directors that ultimately defined the Everson's collection as it exists today. This exhibition examines over one hundred years of the Museum's collecting priorities, from the Museum's earliest acquisitions in 1911 to work acquired in 2019.

Raphael Trelles: The Imagined Word
Point of Contact Gallery

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

Rafael Trelles, from Santurce, Puerto Rico, is a painter, printmaker, installation artist, stage and costume designer. Trelles completed his Bachelors' Degree at the University of Puerto Rico, and his Doctorate from Escuela Nacional de Artes Plásticas (Academia San Carlos). In the mid-1980s, Trelles resided in the Canary Islands, where he produces a series of paintings titled The Universal Tarot, resembling his later works use of mysticism and magic. Returning to Puerto Rico in 1986, he dedicated himself to his art and to the artist group El Alfil (Image and Word), which he co-founded in 1994. Trelles also does public art using a pressure hose on walls, sidewalks, and other surfaces, a genre he calls "urban graphic art" seen in the 2007 documentary En Concreto (On Concrete). The film illustrates this experimental graphic work originally designed for abandoned sectors of worldwide cities.

In "The Imagined Word," Trelles employs references to Hispanic mythology and world literature. Influenced by surrealist Max Ernst, he brings the viewer on a voyage to an esoteric world of characters in dreamlike settings, where solitude reigns.

Lawrence Abu Hamdan: Walled Unwalled
Urban Video Project

Price: Free
Everson Museum of Art Plaza
401 Harrison St., Syracuse

Light Work's Urban Video Project (UVP) presents Walled Unwalled, an exhibition by 2019 Turner Prize recipient Lawrence Abu Hamdan. The work is on view at UVP's outdoor projection site on the north facade of the Everson Museum of Art, beginning at dusk.

In our solid, everyday world, the invisible surrounds us. Heat waves, sound waves, radio waves, tiny particles called muons — they seep through walls carrying information that used to surveil, to exonerate, or to incriminate. They can even become weapons. Walled Unwalled comprises an interlinking series of narratives that derive from legal cases whose evidence individuals heard or experienced through walls or doors, bleeding through these seemingly impermeable barriers.

Opening: Amadeus
Syracuse Stage
Robert Hupp, director

Archbold Theater, Syracuse Stage
820 E. Genesee St., Syracuse

Mickey Rowe (The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-time) returns to Syracuse Stage to take on the role of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart in this contemporary favorite about artistic rivalry and suspected murder. Antonio Salieri has pledged his life to God in exchange for success as a composer. Yet the music that most captures God's voice comes not from Salieri, but from the prodigy Mozart. Could jealousy have driven Salieri to murder this "obscene child" who is unworthy of the musical genius he possesses? On the eve of his own death, Salieri reveals his final composition: "The Death of Mozart—or, Did I Do It?" Well, did he or didn't he? An enticing and enjoyable theatrical experience enhanced by a variety of musical events in partnership with Symphoria.

Lawrence Abu Hamdan: Walled Unwalled
Urban Video Project

Price: Free
Everson Museum of Art Plaza
401 Harrison St., Syracuse

Light Work's Urban Video Project (UVP) presents Walled Unwalled, an exhibition by 2019 Turner Prize recipient Lawrence Abu Hamdan. The work is on view at UVP's outdoor projection site on the north facade of the Everson Museum of Art, beginning at dusk.

In our solid, everyday world, the invisible surrounds us. Heat waves, sound waves, radio waves, tiny particles called muons — they seep through walls carrying information that used to surveil, to exonerate, or to incriminate. They can even become weapons. Walled Unwalled comprises an interlinking series of narratives that derive from legal cases whose evidence individuals heard or experienced through walls or doors, bleeding through these seemingly impermeable barriers.

A Legacy of Firsts: The Everson Collects

Everson Museum of Art

In 1911, the Syracuse Museum of Fine Arts (known today as the Everson) made history as the first museum in the country to declare that it would focus on collecting works made by American artists. This decision, implemented by Museum Director Fernando Carter, was the first of many made by directors that ultimately defined the Everson's collection as it exists today. This exhibition examines over one hundred years of the Museum's collecting priorities, from the Museum's earliest acquisitions in 1911 to work acquired in 2019.
