Descendance Panel Discussion [Online]

February 23, 2021 12:30 PM - March 09, 2021 10:59 PM

Join the Jacob Lawrence Gallery on Tuesday, February 23, for a panel conversation exploring the themes of Ariel René Jacksons Descendance, such as lineage, generational change, and the ways in which history is carried in the body. The panel features five leading artists and scholars whose work focuses on elements of Black culture and identity: Jackson, the 2021 Jacob Lawrence Legacy Resident; tap dance artist Michael J. Love, who collaborated on Descendance; and artists Nikita Gale and Betelhem Makonnen. Curator and writer Jamal Batts moderates the discussion. The panelists will discuss the way their own practices relate to history and identification, considering how the self transforms in relation to objects over time.

Virtual Sister Spit Tour 2021

March 13, 2021 7:00 PM

In 2021 Sister Spit celebrates its 24th year on the roads of the United States. With COVID-19 hitting hard during the 2020 tour, weve adapted the 2021 tour to be all virtual for the safety of our artists, partners and audience members. That being said Sister Spit 2021 offers much needed connection after a year of isolation, even if held in the digital and virtual atmosphere. The tour began in San Francisco in the 1990s as a weekly, girls-only open mic that was an alternative to the misogyny- soaked poetry open mics popular around the city at that time. Sister Spit became the first all-girl poetry roadshow at the end of the 90s. The tour was revived as Sister Spit: The Next Generation in 2007. In this next incarnation, out of respect to the changing gender landscape of our queer communities, the tour welcomed artists of all genders. Sister Spit 2018 marked a new chapter in the tours history. As Radar Productions, the non-profit that houses Sister Spit, has shifted its vision toward Queer & Trans People of Color (QTPOC) specifically, so too had the tour shifted in lineup and style. In 2022 we are rebranding the Sister Spit tour to reflect the intersectional identities of our community. This year marks the tours 24th anniversary of bringing powerful, provocative, vital queer writers and performers on the road. Tour alum include Eileen Myles, Dorothy Allison, Justin Vivian Bond and Chinaka Hodge.

GERMAN CINEMA NOW! - Giraffe [Online]

March 24, 2021 5:00 PM

On the Danish island of Lolland, in the light, desaturated blues of Baltic summer, construction is underway on the Fehmarn Tunnel, a massive fixed link that will replace the ferry and connect Germany and Denmark. Called up from Berlin on contract with the local county museum, ethnographer Dara (played by Lisa Loven Kongsli, Force Majeure) documents buildings, artifacts, and ways of life that will be displaced by the tunnel. Performing this proleptic archeology by day and returning by night to her temporary apartment, she develops a powerful fascination with an abandoned farmhouse set for demolition, and the woman, Agnes, who once lived there. As she finds her way, through Agness diary, into Agnes solitaryif not entirely monasticlife, Daras own solitude ends in an electric storm at the seashore, when she and 24 year-old Lucek (Jakub Gierszal) meet. One of a team of Polish contract workers laying cable for the fixed link, Lucek and his compatriots live communally, seemingly closer to their families at home in Poland than to the Danish society around them. While their ages (shes 38), jobs, culture, and lifestyles are profoundly different, Dara and Luceks companionship and physical relationship lead them ever further into an emotional tunnel whose destination is unknown. Links across coaxial cable, seas, and time: Giraffes connections and disruptions are not metaphor, but investigation. Mining contrasts between surface and depth, here and there, now and then, and me and you, Danish-German director Anna Sofie Hartmann neither reaches for drama nor does she allow her abundant ideas to weight down the film. Static shots and careful framing let the viewer see and take in drifting clouds of emotion. Fundamental to the films style is a soft, gradual approach, like that of a Nordic summer dusk. (Martin Schwartz)
