Dance Performance | Living Catalogue: All-Day Dance Event


Living Catalogue is visual installation and live performance that asks how much dance can be contained in a gallery setting. Laura Peterson will present her work at a pop-up gallery space. The works on view include Failure (2017), Paper Room (in development for 2020) and SOLO (2016). Dances run throughout the day. Visual art pieces are also on view. These recent performances include Peterson's use of large pieces of paper as a medium to express her interest in the intersection of the materiality of the body and the physical world. Laura's tactile environments are dynamic and, like the dancers, are in constant flux. These three pieces track Laura’s recent works with paper, showing the unfolding of large-scale origami, moving paintings, or demolition of sculptural pieces. Performed by Janessa Clark, Darrin Wright, Jennifer Sydor, and Laura Peterson

Film | Black Legion (1937): Oscar nominated crime film-noir


When a hard-working machinist loses a promotion to a Polish-born worker, he is seduced into joining the secretive Black Legion, which intimidates foreigners through violence. 83 min. Directors: Archie Mayo.  Starring Humphrey Bogart, Ann Sheridan, Dick Foran.  The plot is based on the May 1935 kidnapping and murder in Detroit of Charles A. Poole, a Works Progress Administration organizer.  Robert Lord's original screenplay received an Academy Award nomination in 1937, but lost to William Wellman and Robert Carson's work for A Star Is Born. The National Board of Review named Black Legion as the best film of 1937, and Humprey Bogart as the best actor for his work in the film. It was one of a series of anti-fascist films in this period that addressed the dangers to society from groups that opposed immigrants (especially Catholics and Jews) and blacks, showing that fascism and racism resulted in similar "crimes against humanity.

Workshop | FMTGNCGFGQNBO: Alighiero Boetti Drawing Jam


In the 1970s artist Alighiero Boetti made a signature series of ballpoint pen drawings exploring chance and order, systems of classification, duality, and collective labor. These large abstract drawings were made by Boetti’s students who were given specific drawing guidelines based on their genders. Artist Liz Collins will lead a workshop reconstructing Boetti’s drawing prompts to emphasize open gender classifications. Participants will be asked to identify gender categories beyond male and female, discarding the either/or aspect of Boetti’s method to focus the activity as an exploration of drawing and gender.
