IN THE GALLERIES: UP IN ARMS

UP IN ARMS presents a number of perspectives on the image and impact of guns in contemporary culture, though none endorse them as a means to an end. Works by fourteen artists touch upon a host of issues surrounding access to and the use of firearms, examining and representing the role that guns continue to play in our national mythologies and pathologies, suicide and homicide rates, domestic violence, and mass media.
Guest Curator: Susanne Slavick
This exhibition is being presented in conjunction with Wesleyan's annual Shasha Seminar for Human Concerns (October 27 & 28), which focuses on "Guns in American Society".
South Gallery, Ezra and Cecile Zilkha Gallery

IN THE GALLERIES: SASHA RUDENSKY: ACTS AND ILLUSIONS

For more than a decade, Sasha Rudensky '01 has repeatedly returned to Russia and the post-Soviet territories with her camera. Her photographs track a lost generation that has come of age during the Putin Era—a time of political upheaval, ideological uncertainty, and unhinged materiality. This exhibition highlights more than thirty photographs from Rudensky’s series Remains (2004–2007), Eastern Eve (2009–2014), and Tinsel and Blue (2009–2015). Shifting between social document and fantasy, truth and illusion, and banality and decadence, these meticulously observed and constructed images present an unsettling view into contemporary life in the New East.
Davison Art Center

12:00 PM to 5:00 PM
IN THE GALLERIES: Black Pulp!

Black Pulp! examines the evolving perspectives of black identity in American culture and history from 1912 to 2016 through rare historical printed media shown in dialogue with contemporary art. The exhibition highlights works by artists, graphic designers, writers, and publishers in formats ranging from little known comic books to covers for historic books and magazines, etchings, digital prints, drawings, and media-based works by an intergenerational selection of 21 of today’s leading artists from the black diaspora. The Black Pulp! exhibition tour is organized by International Print Center New York.

Feminist, Gender and Sexuality Studies (FGSS) Annual Fall Symposium

Each year, the Feminist, Gender and Sexuality Studies program hosts an annual Fall Symposium on a topic of importance to both our interdisciplinary field and to the world outside academia. It was forty years ago, in 1977, when a committee first convened to create a Women’s Studies program at Wesleyan University. Since then, the program (now Feminist, Gender and Sexuality Studies) has graduated roughly 275 majors. Our alumni are working in law, medicine, television, publishing and digital media, education, social policy, community organizing, international development, eco-tourism, the arts, and many other fields. At our Fall Symposium in 2017, we will host a panel of alumni who will share their insights about how the study of gender, sexuality and feminism (or women’s studies) has influenced them, and how they have put their learning into practice. The title of our symposium is “The Politics of Knowledge.” We will host an alumni reception after the panel to celebrate 40 years of gender studies at Wesleyan. The event is open to all and we hope that you will please join us!

WESEMINAR UNPACKED: Refugee Baggage
UNPACKED: Refugee Baggage seeks to humanize the word “refugee.” Created during the summer of 2017, this multi-media installation is the work of Syrian-born, New Haven CT artist and architect Mohamad Hafez and Iraqi-born writer and speaker Ahmed Badr ’20.
For UNPACKED: Refugee Baggage, Hafez sculpturally re-creates rooms, homes, buildings and landscapes that have suffered the ravages of war. Each is embedded with the voices and stories of real people — from Afghanistan, Congo, Syria, Iraq and Sudan — who have escaped those same rooms and buildings to build a new life in America. Their stories are collected and curated by Badr ’20, who is himself an Iraqi refugee.
During this WESeminar, Hafez and Badr ’20 will share their personal experiences, along with photos from the exhibition and its 10 works of art.
Speakers: Ahmed Badr ’20 is a writer, social entrepreneur, poet, and former refugee from Iraq. With work featured by Instagram, NPR, The Huffington Post, Adobe, United Nations, and others, Ahmed explores the intersection between creativity, the refugee experience, and youth empowerment. At Wesleyan, Ahmed is a Fellow at the Allbritton Center for the Study of Public Life. He spent this past summer working with the UN Migration Agency, hosting a podcast titled "TOGETHER,” which is centered around the stories of refugee and migrant youth across the world.
A Syrian artist and architect, Mohamad Hafez was born in Damascus, raised in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, and educated in the Midwestern United States. Expressing the juxtaposition of East and West within him, Hafez’s art reflects the political turmoil in the Middle East through the compilation of found objects, paint and scrap metal. With four highly acclaimed exhibits under his belt, Hafez creates surrealistic Middle Eastern streetscapes that are architectural in their appearance yet politically charged in their content. His work has been profiled by NPR and New Yorker Magazine.
The creation and initial exhibition of Unpacked: Refugee Baggage is supported by the Connecticut Office of the Arts, Wesleyan University’s Center for the Arts, and the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation.

WESEMINAR WHY ARE ALL THE BLACK KIDS SITTING TOGETHER IN THE CAFETERIA? And Other Conversations About Race with Dr. Beverly Tatum ’75, HON ’15, P’04

The Wesleyan R.J. Julia bookstore welcomes Beverly Daniel Tatum ’75, HON ’15, P’04, renowned authority on the psychology of racism, for a discussion about her critically acclaimed work, WHY ARE ALL THE BLACK KIDS SITTING TOGETHER IN THE CAFETERIA? And Other Conversations About Race. Her book, originally published in 1997 and revised for its twentieth anniversary, is essential reading for anyone seeking to understand the dynamics of race in America. Walk into any racially mixed high school and you will see Black, White, and Latino youth clustered in their own groups. Is this self-segregation a problem to address or a coping strategy? Dr. Tatum argues that straight talk about our racial identities is essential if we are serious about enabling communication across racial and ethnic divides. These topics have only become more urgent as the national conversation about race is increasingly acrimonious.
Speaker: Beverly Daniel Tatum ’75, HON ’15, P’04, PhD, is president emerita of Spelman College and in 2014 received the Award for Outstanding Lifetime Contribution to Psychology, the highest honor presented by the American Psychological Association. Beverly, a former member of the Wesleyan Board of Trustees, received a Distinguished Alumnus Award in 2000 at her 25th Reunion and an honorary Doctor of Humane Letters in 2015. She lives in Atlanta, Georgia.

WESEMINAR The Annual Robert F. Schumann Symposium: Where on Earth Are We Going? Stories From The Aftermath of Hurricane Harvey in Houston and the Legacy of Fukushima

Over the past 20 years, Jake Price has witnessed firsthand the impact of climate change on coastal communities, documenting the profound changes that these communities must contend with. Most recently he was in Houston where he accompanied first responders as they saved Houston residents form the rising waters and then recorded their testimony. His presentation will explore long-term options that communities should adopt after the water recedes. We have reached a point where renewable energy has become more accessible than ever, so why isn't it being utilized in the regions most affected by climate change as rebuilding commences? What can be done to help get storm battered communities to become leaders in renewable energy and how might universities, government and industry play a part in that?
As challenging as current events may seem, there is also reason for hope: In each aftermath, Jake was profoundly moved by the decisions that people made as it relates to their relationships to others and how they came to a deeper awareness of what's important in life—an awareness that those of us who have not lived through the direct impacts of climate change could learn from. Jake will share stories of his personal experiences with the displaced and will screen selections from his upcoming films from Fukushima and Houston.
Speaker: Jake Price is a filmmaker and photojournalist, whose work has appeared in The New York Times, TIME, The New Yorker, and the BBC, among others, and is featured in performances by movement-based artist Eiko Otake P’07, ’10.

WESEMINAR The Annual Robert F. Schumann Symposium: Where on Earth Are We Going? A Body in Places -- Making Distance Malleable

This year’s College of the Environment (COE) Think Tank Fellow and Menakka & Essel Bailey ’66 Distinguished Visiting Scholar, Eiko Otake P’07, ’10 (of Eiko & Koma), dances alone in odd places: a train station, a library, a cathedral, an observatory, Wall Street. Eiko’s presentation of her current work, A Body in Places, brings to the audience two critical themes that require connection: disaster and indifference. Disasters, such as Fukushima, Chernobyl and Hurricane Harvey are not mere disruptions. Disasters need to be remembered because so much suffering has been caused and magnified by human recklessness. By performing in public places, Eiko makes herself and her performances radically available to a wide range of audiences and invites her viewers to discover that distance, which is often a cause of people’s indifference, is indeed malleable. Someone else's pain far away can become achingly immediate. That sense of immediacy CAN help us to resist our collective forgetfulness.
Eiko’s work was inspired by and contextualized with her multiple visits to post-nuclear-disaster Fukushima Japan. Performing with the same costumes and props as she did in Fukushima, Eiko offers her body as a conduit to connect places: a here and now of her performances for audience with Fukushima where she danced for no one but a camera and irradiated landscape. Sharing her video and photos, Eiko will speak about the why, what and how of her four-year, and ongoing, project.
Katja Kolcio (Chair of the Dance Department and this year’s COE Think Tank Fellow) and William Johnston (Professor of History, Science in Society, and the College of East Asian Studies and photographer of the project) will join Eiko in a conversation. All videos were shot and collaboratively edited with Eiko by Alexis Moh ’15 (Wesleyan Film major). Mark McCloughan ’10 (Wes Theater major) has worked with Eiko as a dramaturge from the beginning of the project.
Please find more information here.

IN THE GALLERIES: UP IN ARMS

UP IN ARMS presents a number of perspectives on the image and impact of guns in contemporary culture, though none endorse them as a means to an end. Works by fourteen artists touch upon a host of issues surrounding access to and the use of firearms, examining and representing the role that guns continue to play in our national mythologies and pathologies, suicide and homicide rates, domestic violence, and mass media.
Guest Curator: Susanne Slavick
This exhibition is being presented in conjunction with Wesleyan's annual Shasha Seminar for Human Concerns (October 27 & 28), which focuses on "Guns in American Society".

IN THE GALLERIES: SASHA RUDENSKY: ACTS AND ILLUSIONS

For more than a decade, Sasha Rudensky '01 has repeatedly returned to Russia and the post-Soviet territories with her camera. Her photographs track a lost generation that has come of age during the Putin Era—a time of political upheaval, ideological uncertainty, and unhinged materiality. This exhibition highlights more than thirty photographs from Rudensky’s series Remains (2004–2007), Eastern Eve (2009–2014), and Tinsel and Blue (2009–2015). Shifting between social document and fantasy, truth and illusion, and banality and decadence, these meticulously observed and constructed images present an unsettling view into contemporary life in the New East.

WESEMINAR Roche and Dinkeloo’s Center for the Arts at Wesleyan University: Classical, Vernacular, and Modernist Architecture in the 1960s

From 1965 to 1973, Kevin Roche and John Dinkeloo created the buildings and their landscape known as the Center for the Arts at Wesleyan University in Middletown, Connecticut. These buildings appear to be essays in mid-twentieth century modernism, directly expressing their varied interior programs in cubic volumes of limestone walls and reinforced concrete spans for floors and roofs. Yet the Wesleyan Center for the Arts is tellingly described as a condensation of ideas from the pre-existing built environment, including the seventeenth-century regional vernacular, and the local Greek Revival. The center’s originality also condenses ideas from earlier and contemporaneous modern architecture, including works of Le Corbusier, Mies van der Rohe, and Louis Kahn. Thus an account of this architecture broadens our understanding of the creative process as an integration of multiple sources, and our view of modernism’s potential to innovate while fittingly engaging with earlier periods without duplicating their historical vocabularies. A brief CFA walking tour will follow the session, weather permitting.
Speaker: Joseph Siry, Kenan Professor of the Humanities and Professor of Art History at Wesleyan University.
Introduction: Matt Winn ’92, leader of Wesleyan’s Real Estate Professional Network.

WESEMINAR A Look Inside the College of Film and the Moving Image: Cinema and the Liberal Arts

The College of Film and the Moving Image is one of Wesleyan’s oldest “new” colleges. Wesleyan announced C-FILM in 2013, and the Mellon Foundation recognized it with a matching grant which was fully funded in 2015. Yet film has been part of Wesleyan’s liberal arts tradition since at least the 1960s, progressing from a major, to a program, to a department. Join Professor Scott Higgins, the director of C-Film, for a look at the history and future of Wesleyan’s unique liberal-arts approach to the moving image. You will see images move!
