Conference | Ukraine in North America: Diaspora Activism, Academic Initiatives (in-person and online)


The international conference will gather scholars from the United States, Canada, and Ukraine to focus on different waves of immigration from Ukraine to North America and on the organizational and political activity of these individuals, chiefly their establishment of Ukrainian studies in their new homelands. Having helped incorporate Ukraine as a subject of discussion at academic institutions in the U.S. and Canada, the diaspora has now itself become the subject of scholarly analysis in contemporary Ukraine. Among the topics to be examined during the conference: new approaches in defining the Ukrainian diaspora; the political engagement of the diaspora during the twentieth century and today; the role of libraries and archives in the establishment of Ukrainian studies institutions in North America; and various avenues of study of the Ukrainian diaspora in today's Ukraine.

Discussion | Florilegium: A Poetic Historiography of Plants


Aartists Kristaps Ancāns, Agate Tuna, and Anna Malicka gather for a presentation and discussion of “Botanical Timeline,” a new collaborative multi-media installation commissioned for the exhibition. The event is moderated by curator Corina L. Apostol. This timeline reconsiders our relationship with plants by highlighting voices, gestures, and approaches that challenge dominant assumptions. It supports the opening up of new perspectives and encourages multiple ways of thinking and imagining. Reflecting plant entanglements with one another, including the histories of colonialism, gender, economics, and politics, the piece explores how words make worlds and put forth perspectives for different futures. Each video chapter in the “Botanical Timeline” works as a tool to access the social and ecological imaginaries that unfold in the exhibition, acknowledging diverse ways of being, thinking, and doing. It also reflects how colonial taxonomies have shaped the language and conditions of botanical conscriptions that were extensions of political power. The artists and curator will address strategies for a conscious untangling of colonial vocabulary as new voices emerge, creating space for reflections and producing textual tools to understand botanical lives.

Opening Reception | Covey Gong & Eli Ping: Photographs


From Gong: "However grand and majestic, ethereal and cosmic Eli’s work appear to be, they are domestic and intimate to me. I first noticed the connection between Eli’s work and domesticity through his pewter sculptures. They were made in a household cast iron wok and heated in the oven. The various forms of these sculptures inherited the shapes of different pots and pans he used. Eli mentioned the coloration that happened through oxidation had captured the energy of the sunset on Lake Michigan, which the window in the dining room looks out to. The canvases were sewn and stretched at the same dinner table, ceramic plates from the pantry were used as tracing guides for the shapes that he later painted onto these canvases."

Dance Performance | Carmina Burana: Carl Orff Adapted to Dance


Szeged Contemporary Dance Company brings to life Carl Orff's monumental musical masterpiece as a spectacular dance-theater adaptation. Making their first trip across the Atlantic, Szeged Contemporary Dance Company / Szegedi Kortars Balett, Hungary's leading contemporary dance company, will make their U.S. debut. SCDC will bring their highly acclaimed adaptation of Carmina Burana to the U.S. The work has been performed 350 times, with more than 180,000 viewers worldwide, sold out audiences, and standing ovations across Europe, Mexico and the Middle East. Carl Orff's monumental musical masterpiece is brought to life as a spectacular dance-theater adaptation. Carmina Burana vividly captures the common fears and joys of an imaginary barbarian community as it keeps fighting for its own survival and humanity through mysterious rituals until its very last breath. Fate sometimes brings love, joy, and sometimes brings sadness or death. A girl whose life was meant to be short can feel true happiness for a moment, when love makes her forget all the bad things, and makes her believe in a life that can be different, that can be better. But Fortune is fickle and cruel.
