Screening | The Sea Does Not Reach Naples: Student Film on Life in Postwar Italy


This directing thesis production from Elena Vannoni is based on Anna Maria Ortese's 1953 collection Il mare non bagna Napoli, a lively representation of everyday life in post-WWII Naples, Italy. In the building of the Granili - a grotesque emblem of Naples in the 50s, the writerly persona of Ortese guides us through a child's experience of receiving her first pair of glasses, a woman's inner struggle upon the life-altering return of her lost love, and a melancholic hope to hold together a family broken by the war. Traveling with Ortese in the inferno-esque reality of post-war Neapolitan society, we experience in each story the painful grace that evokes the cuore pensante (ever-thinking heart) within ourselves.

Opening Reception | KNYYA Artist Group Exhibition


Interestingly mid-1970’s in the United States, the Pattern and Decoration art movement crossed between art and design to use and mimic multiple patterns of wallpapers, printed fabrics, or quilts to express the richness and the beauty of visual complexity. On the other hand, around the same period of time in Korea and Japan, Dansaekhwa was dominated by avant-garde Korean artists including Lee Ufan, Park Seobo, Kim Whan-ki with non-figurative and experimental paintings in neutral hues which is an important part of Minimalism in Korean art history.

Opening Reception | City of Kings: A History of New York City Graffiti


How did a subculture born on the streets of New York City evolve into a ubiquitous global phenomenon?

Happening is pleased to present an exhibition tracing the historical chronology of graffiti's emergence as an art form and elevating the under-recognized artists and other players who pushed the medium forward.

Play | Eugene Ionesco's Exit the King: The World Changes, People Don't


What happens when the absurd becomes real, and reality becomes absurd? This production of Eugene Ionesco's pioneering absurdist comedy takes a close look at power, ego and terror, proving that while the world around us may change, human nature rarely does. Directed by Omar Sangare and featuring an ensemble cast of emerging young actors, playing multiple roles, audiences are drawn into a game where the King may set the rules but the actual winner is anyone's guess.
