Dreams Deferred
SU Art Galleries

SU Art Galleries, Shaffer Art Building
Syracuse University, Syracuse

"Dreams Deferred: Reflections on Liberty, Equality, and Sovereignty in U.S. Art" examines the idea of freedom in the United States as expressed in art, including its possibilities, its oversights, its uneven implementation, and its attacks on Indigenous sovereignty. Curated by incoming Master of Arts students in art history and under the direction of Associate Professor Sascha Scott.

Featuring work drawn from the S.U. Art Museum's extensive permanent collection, including newly acquired artwork, the exhibition highlights how structural inequities, oppressive histories, disenfranchisement, and degradation of personhood are variously perpetuated, elided, and disrupted in U.S. art. "Dreams Deferred" also highlights art that advocates for equality, accentuates personhood, and unmasks structural racism and histories of misogyny, enslavement, dispossession — violences that are still felt today.

Hoop Dreams: Basketball and Contemporary Art
Everson Museum of Art

Everson Museum of Art
401 Harrison St., Syracuse

A multibillion-dollar global industry that began as a recreational activity more than a century ago, the game of basketball is deeply rooted in our society and culture. Playing or watching the sport invokes intangible ideas and feelings — beauty, excitement, hope, triumph, joy, pain, defeat — experiences that define what it means to be human.

Artists have drawn creative inspiration from the personas and culture of the game for decades, and many in recent years have used them as a topic or metaphor to interrogate today's pressing social issues, from dismantling racial stereotypes and traditional gender roles to revealing systemic economic inequities, the effects of global commodification, and more. Featuring paintings, sculpture, photography, video, and installation works created by some of the most significant living artists in the United States, Hoop Dreams demonstrates how tightly intertwined contemporary art and life are with the art of the game.

50th Anniversary: Selections from Light Work Collection
Everson Museum of Art

Everson Museum of Art
401 Harrison St., Syracuse

Remarkable in its breadth and depth, Light Work's 50th Anniversary exhibition is a thoughtful composition of photographic works that have come into Light Work's permanent collection over the past 50 years through the generosity of former artist-in-residence participants, Grant Awardees, and individual donations. The works on view are a reflective curation from over 4,000 objects and photographic prints from an extensive and diverse archive that maps the trends and developments in contemporary photography. The semi-centennial presents a unique opportunity to share the legacy of support the organization has extended to emerging and under-represented artists working in photography and digital image-making. Highlights in the show include early works from acclaimed photographers Dawoud Bey, Carrie Mae Weems, James Welling, and more.

Common Ground
Everson Museum of Art

Everson Museum of Art
401 Harrison St., Syracuse

To celebrate the new millennium, in the year 2000 artist Neil Tetkowski undertook a Herculean project: gathering clay from all 188 member countries from the United Nations. With these clay samples, Tetkowski created a suitably monumental work that debuted at United Nations headquarters in New York City—the Common Ground World Mandala. Measuring seven feet in diameter and more than nine feet high, Tetkowski's sculpture is a testament to the artist's ability to think beyond boundaries—of scale, of geography, and of politics.

"Common Ground" uses Tetkowski's World Mandala as the centerpiece of an exhibition that showcases the Everson's vast collection of world ceramics. From ancient Mesopotamian and Greek pottery to contemporary Zulu beer brewing vessels and a life-size terracotta horse built by Indian priests, the Everson's collection traces the evolution of ceramics across cultures over thousands of years. Because of Syracuse's focus on welcoming immigrants and refugees to the community, there are over 70 languages spoken in city schools. "Common Ground" uses ceramics, one of humankind's oldest art forms, to remind us of our shared bonds with the earth.

Alison Altafi: Reverie
Everson Museum of Art

Everson Museum of Art
401 Harrison St., Syracuse

Alison Altafi is a self-taught fiber artist based in Syracuse. She explores fibers in unexpected ways, creating weavings-in-the-round that appear to be portals to other worlds. Their magical, otherworldly, textured, and fantastical abstract surfaces could be microcosms for the universe.

Altafi's unique process involves transforming metal frames into looms, which she then weaves onto. Unlike traditional weaving, where the tapestry is removed from the loom upon completion, with Altafi's process, the loom becomes a part of the internal structure of the work, providing both a frame and a structure. She uses the loom like a canvas, and the yarn becomes her paint.

For Altafi, the weaving process is just as important as the final work. It functions as a form of escapism, and is cathartic and meditative.

Chromania
Everson Museum of Art

Everson Museum of Art
401 Harrison St., Syracuse

Color is an essential therapy for those cold and gray Central New York winters. The Everson embraces this with Chromania, a riot of kaleidoscopic color guaranteed to chase the winter grays away. In the wake of Impressionism, 20th-century artists developed a range of strategies to explore and employ color. Painter and educator Josef Albers taught that all color is relative, meaning that the appearance of a color can change based on other colors it is surrounded by.

Beginning with Albers' iconic Homage to the Square series, Chromania explores how subsequent generations of artists in the Everson's collection employ color in ways that are subjective and expressive as well as scientific and systematic. From the precise geometry of Peter Pincus' ceramics to the animated gesture of a painting by Jackie Saccoccio, Chromania provides dazzle and inspiration during the long months of winter.

Exploring Ukrainian Literature: Ukraine Beyond the Headlines
ArtRage Gallery
Featuring Pat Burak

Price: Free
ArtRage Gallery
505 Hawley Ave., Syracuse

Pat Burak, a part-time assistant professor at Syracuse University of Ukrainian heritage, welcomes you to an evening exploring Ukrainian literature.

As a contribution to the deeper background of Lida Suchy's current exhibition "Portrait of a Village Ukraine" Burak will talk about Ukrainian culture as it has been presented and preserved in literature for centuries.

Starting with the iconic Taras Shevchenko, who could be called the Ukrainian Robert Frost, Burak will move from the early 19th century through the times. Poets, playwrights, and novelists have presented Ukrainian culture to the world in great works, some of which have been made into iconic films. Current authors include Yuri Andrukhovych, Serhiy Zhadan, and Oksana Zabuzhko. Novels by Maria Matios and Lina Kostenko will also be presented to help develop a broader and more intense understanding of the role of culture, literature and music. Ruslana, major Ukrainian pop culture winner of Eurovison 2004, keeps the younger generation in touch with the spirit and love of life which Ukrainian culture expresses in its art.

Register for this free event by emailing info@artragegallery.org. After registering you can download the workshop readings from the website.

Dreams Deferred
SU Art Galleries

SU Art Galleries, Shaffer Art Building
Syracuse University, Syracuse

"Dreams Deferred: Reflections on Liberty, Equality, and Sovereignty in U.S. Art" examines the idea of freedom in the United States as expressed in art, including its possibilities, its oversights, its uneven implementation, and its attacks on Indigenous sovereignty. Curated by incoming Master of Arts students in art history and under the direction of Associate Professor Sascha Scott.

Featuring work drawn from the S.U. Art Museum's extensive permanent collection, including newly acquired artwork, the exhibition highlights how structural inequities, oppressive histories, disenfranchisement, and degradation of personhood are variously perpetuated, elided, and disrupted in U.S. art. "Dreams Deferred" also highlights art that advocates for equality, accentuates personhood, and unmasks structural racism and histories of misogyny, enslavement, dispossession — violences that are still felt today.

Hoop Dreams: Basketball and Contemporary Art
Everson Museum of Art

Everson Museum of Art
401 Harrison St., Syracuse

A multibillion-dollar global industry that began as a recreational activity more than a century ago, the game of basketball is deeply rooted in our society and culture. Playing or watching the sport invokes intangible ideas and feelings — beauty, excitement, hope, triumph, joy, pain, defeat — experiences that define what it means to be human.

Artists have drawn creative inspiration from the personas and culture of the game for decades, and many in recent years have used them as a topic or metaphor to interrogate today's pressing social issues, from dismantling racial stereotypes and traditional gender roles to revealing systemic economic inequities, the effects of global commodification, and more. Featuring paintings, sculpture, photography, video, and installation works created by some of the most significant living artists in the United States, Hoop Dreams demonstrates how tightly intertwined contemporary art and life are with the art of the game.

Common Ground
Everson Museum of Art

Everson Museum of Art
401 Harrison St., Syracuse

To celebrate the new millennium, in the year 2000 artist Neil Tetkowski undertook a Herculean project: gathering clay from all 188 member countries from the United Nations. With these clay samples, Tetkowski created a suitably monumental work that debuted at United Nations headquarters in New York City—the Common Ground World Mandala. Measuring seven feet in diameter and more than nine feet high, Tetkowski's sculpture is a testament to the artist's ability to think beyond boundaries—of scale, of geography, and of politics.

"Common Ground" uses Tetkowski's World Mandala as the centerpiece of an exhibition that showcases the Everson's vast collection of world ceramics. From ancient Mesopotamian and Greek pottery to contemporary Zulu beer brewing vessels and a life-size terracotta horse built by Indian priests, the Everson's collection traces the evolution of ceramics across cultures over thousands of years. Because of Syracuse's focus on welcoming immigrants and refugees to the community, there are over 70 languages spoken in city schools. "Common Ground" uses ceramics, one of humankind's oldest art forms, to remind us of our shared bonds with the earth.

Chromania
Everson Museum of Art

Everson Museum of Art
401 Harrison St., Syracuse

Color is an essential therapy for those cold and gray Central New York winters. The Everson embraces this with Chromania, a riot of kaleidoscopic color guaranteed to chase the winter grays away. In the wake of Impressionism, 20th-century artists developed a range of strategies to explore and employ color. Painter and educator Josef Albers taught that all color is relative, meaning that the appearance of a color can change based on other colors it is surrounded by.

Beginning with Albers' iconic Homage to the Square series, Chromania explores how subsequent generations of artists in the Everson's collection employ color in ways that are subjective and expressive as well as scientific and systematic. From the precise geometry of Peter Pincus' ceramics to the animated gesture of a painting by Jackie Saccoccio, Chromania provides dazzle and inspiration during the long months of winter.

Alison Altafi: Reverie
Everson Museum of Art

Everson Museum of Art
401 Harrison St., Syracuse

Alison Altafi is a self-taught fiber artist based in Syracuse. She explores fibers in unexpected ways, creating weavings-in-the-round that appear to be portals to other worlds. Their magical, otherworldly, textured, and fantastical abstract surfaces could be microcosms for the universe.

Altafi's unique process involves transforming metal frames into looms, which she then weaves onto. Unlike traditional weaving, where the tapestry is removed from the loom upon completion, with Altafi's process, the loom becomes a part of the internal structure of the work, providing both a frame and a structure. She uses the loom like a canvas, and the yarn becomes her paint.

For Altafi, the weaving process is just as important as the final work. It functions as a form of escapism, and is cathartic and meditative.

Sofía Gallisá Muriente: Lluvia con nieve (Rain with Snow)
Urban Video Project

Everson Museum of Art Plaza
401 Harrison St., Syracuse

In 1955, Paramount News, "the eyes and ears of the world," projected in movie theaters around the United States images of a plane landing in Puerto Rico carrying two tons of snow and a family from New Hampshire and of the thousands of Puerto Rican youth that received them in a baseball field. These 40 seconds of film are possibly the only surviving audiovisual document of an event that persists as a foggy memory in the conscience of most Puerto Ricans.

Rain with Snow is a double projection that tries to visualize the ideological production processes behind these images of political spectacle, zooming in, stretching out, and manipulating the last cinematic vestige of this moment to interrogate the role of images in the formation of national identity. 2014, 13:30

Sofía Gallisá Muriente is a Puerto Rican visual artist whose work resists colonial forces of erasure and claims the freedom of historical agency, proposing mechanisms for remembering and reimagining.

Screening begins at dusk.

Killer Queen: A Tribute to Queen
Landmark Theatre

Landmark Theatre
362 S. Salina St., Syracuse

Lead singer Patrick Myers said "It's been an amazing journey. That first show changed my life. We thought our band would last maybe a summer at the most but it's a very addictive thing performing these songs. The concerts grew and grew and we've ended up playing and selling out the same arenas that Queen played at their peak. It's been quite a surreal ride. Becoming regular performers at Red Rocks Arena in America is another highlight. The Beatles, U2, Springsteen, and Dylan all played on that stage. It's really got its own kind of magic going on there."

"Concerts as near to the real thing as you're likely to get. A real life Bohemian Rhapsody. Freddie Lives! A Pop Legend Is back" -The People

"Killer Queen is a living jukebox, an absolutely fantastic show. This is an evening where you feel the hair stand on the back of your neck. I've never seen the arena explode with such an electric charge. The sound is perfect ... A Concert to remember" – The VLT – Sundsvall Sweden

"This is a play about 13-year-old girls. It's also a play about women, ambition, and desire," writes Clare Barron about her 2017 Susan Blackburn Prize-winning play Dance Nation. Set in the pressure cooker milieu of an impending national dance competition, Barron takes us into the insular world of a team from Liverpool, Ohio, to expose their rivalries, competitiveness, support, and joy, and to reveal not only their sensitivities and insecurities but their fierce undeniable power. A refreshingly unorthodox play that conveys the joy and abandon of dancing, while addressing the changes to body and mind of its characters as they peer over the precipice toward adulthood.

Sofía Gallisá Muriente: Lluvia con nieve (Rain with Snow)
Urban Video Project

Everson Museum of Art Plaza
401 Harrison St., Syracuse

In 1955, Paramount News, "the eyes and ears of the world," projected in movie theaters around the United States images of a plane landing in Puerto Rico carrying two tons of snow and a family from New Hampshire and of the thousands of Puerto Rican youth that received them in a baseball field. These 40 seconds of film are possibly the only surviving audiovisual document of an event that persists as a foggy memory in the conscience of most Puerto Ricans.

Rain with Snow is a double projection that tries to visualize the ideological production processes behind these images of political spectacle, zooming in, stretching out, and manipulating the last cinematic vestige of this moment to interrogate the role of images in the formation of national identity. 2014, 13:30

Sofía Gallisá Muriente is a Puerto Rican visual artist whose work resists colonial forces of erasure and claims the freedom of historical agency, proposing mechanisms for remembering and reimagining.

Screening begins at dusk.

Opening: Dance Nation
Syracuse University Drama Department
Katherine McGerr, director

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

"This is a play about 13-year-old girls. It's also a play about women, ambition, and desire," writes Clare Barron about her 2017 Susan Blackburn Prize-winning play Dance Nation. Set in the pressure cooker milieu of an impending national dance competition, Barron takes us into the insular world of a team from Liverpool, Ohio, to expose their rivalries, competitiveness, support, and joy, and to reveal not only their sensitivities and insecurities but their fierce undeniable power. A refreshingly unorthodox play that conveys the joy and abandon of dancing, while addressing the changes to body and mind of its characters as they peer over the precipice toward adulthood.

Hoop Dreams: Basketball and Contemporary Art
Everson Museum of Art

Everson Museum of Art
401 Harrison St., Syracuse

A multibillion-dollar global industry that began as a recreational activity more than a century ago, the game of basketball is deeply rooted in our society and culture. Playing or watching the sport invokes intangible ideas and feelings — beauty, excitement, hope, triumph, joy, pain, defeat — experiences that define what it means to be human.

Artists have drawn creative inspiration from the personas and culture of the game for decades, and many in recent years have used them as a topic or metaphor to interrogate today's pressing social issues, from dismantling racial stereotypes and traditional gender roles to revealing systemic economic inequities, the effects of global commodification, and more. Featuring paintings, sculpture, photography, video, and installation works created by some of the most significant living artists in the United States, Hoop Dreams demonstrates how tightly intertwined contemporary art and life are with the art of the game.

Alison Altafi: Reverie
Everson Museum of Art

Everson Museum of Art
401 Harrison St., Syracuse

Alison Altafi is a self-taught fiber artist based in Syracuse. She explores fibers in unexpected ways, creating weavings-in-the-round that appear to be portals to other worlds. Their magical, otherworldly, textured, and fantastical abstract surfaces could be microcosms for the universe.

Altafi's unique process involves transforming metal frames into looms, which she then weaves onto. Unlike traditional weaving, where the tapestry is removed from the loom upon completion, with Altafi's process, the loom becomes a part of the internal structure of the work, providing both a frame and a structure. She uses the loom like a canvas, and the yarn becomes her paint.

For Altafi, the weaving process is just as important as the final work. It functions as a form of escapism, and is cathartic and meditative.

Chromania
Everson Museum of Art

Everson Museum of Art
401 Harrison St., Syracuse

Color is an essential therapy for those cold and gray Central New York winters. The Everson embraces this with Chromania, a riot of kaleidoscopic color guaranteed to chase the winter grays away. In the wake of Impressionism, 20th-century artists developed a range of strategies to explore and employ color. Painter and educator Josef Albers taught that all color is relative, meaning that the appearance of a color can change based on other colors it is surrounded by.

Beginning with Albers' iconic Homage to the Square series, Chromania explores how subsequent generations of artists in the Everson's collection employ color in ways that are subjective and expressive as well as scientific and systematic. From the precise geometry of Peter Pincus' ceramics to the animated gesture of a painting by Jackie Saccoccio, Chromania provides dazzle and inspiration during the long months of winter.

50th Anniversary: Selections from Light Work Collection

Everson Museum of Art
401 Harrison St., Syracuse

Remarkable in its breadth and depth, Light Work's 50th Anniversary exhibition is a thoughtful composition of photographic works that have come into Light Work's permanent collection over the past 50 years through the generosity of former artist-in-residence participants, Grant Awardees, and individual donations. The works on view are a reflective curation from over 4,000 objects and photographic prints from an extensive and diverse archive that maps the trends and developments in contemporary photography. The semi-centennial presents a unique opportunity to share the legacy of support the organization has extended to emerging and under-represented artists working in photography and digital image-making. Highlights in the show include early works from acclaimed photographers Dawoud Bey, Carrie Mae Weems, James Welling, and more.

Common Ground
Everson Museum of Art

Everson Museum of Art
401 Harrison St., Syracuse

To celebrate the new millennium, in the year 2000 artist Neil Tetkowski undertook a Herculean project: gathering clay from all 188 member countries from the United Nations. With these clay samples, Tetkowski created a suitably monumental work that debuted at United Nations headquarters in New York City—the Common Ground World Mandala. Measuring seven feet in diameter and more than nine feet high, Tetkowski's sculpture is a testament to the artist's ability to think beyond boundaries—of scale, of geography, and of politics.

"Common Ground" uses Tetkowski's World Mandala as the centerpiece of an exhibition that showcases the Everson's vast collection of world ceramics. From ancient Mesopotamian and Greek pottery to contemporary Zulu beer brewing vessels and a life-size terracotta horse built by Indian priests, the Everson's collection traces the evolution of ceramics across cultures over thousands of years. Because of Syracuse's focus on welcoming immigrants and refugees to the community, there are over 70 languages spoken in city schools. "Common Ground" uses ceramics, one of humankind's oldest art forms, to remind us of our shared bonds with the earth.

Dreams Deferred
SU Art Galleries

SU Art Galleries, Shaffer Art Building
Syracuse University, Syracuse

"Dreams Deferred: Reflections on Liberty, Equality, and Sovereignty in U.S. Art" examines the idea of freedom in the United States as expressed in art, including its possibilities, its oversights, its uneven implementation, and its attacks on Indigenous sovereignty. Curated by incoming Master of Arts students in art history and under the direction of Associate Professor Sascha Scott.

Featuring work drawn from the S.U. Art Museum's extensive permanent collection, including newly acquired artwork, the exhibition highlights how structural inequities, oppressive histories, disenfranchisement, and degradation of personhood are variously perpetuated, elided, and disrupted in U.S. art. "Dreams Deferred" also highlights art that advocates for equality, accentuates personhood, and unmasks structural racism and histories of misogyny, enslavement, dispossession — violences that are still felt today.
