Discussion | A Conversation with Holocaust Survivor Fania Wedro


Fania Wedro was born Fania Hellman in Koretz, Poland on August 25, 1927. When she was fourteen years old, the Nazis took away her father and the other men living in the village. Fania then spent six months in a work ghetto in Koretz, where she escaped two mass killings by the Nazis. After escaping the second mass killing, she lived in hiding in the forest for eighteen months. After being liberated by the Russians in 1944, Wedro was smuggled across various borders and eventually reached a displaced persons camp in Linz, Austria. She became a teacher in the camp and met and married her husband Leo (Leib) Wedro. In 1948, the couple immigrated to Canada and became successful business owners. This program explores Fania's experiences during the Holocaust, and her efforts to bring attention to the massacre of Jewish villagers in Eastern Europe. She will be interviewed by the Museum's Senior Public Programs Producer Ari Goldstein.

Discussion | A Discussion on Process of Performance Art (online)


While in residence at The Kitchen, performance artist Sophia Cleary continued work on her ongoing project One & Only: a performance series in which each show is borne from the unique connection between Cleary and her audience. Each performance simultaneously celebrates and upsets 1:1 power dynamics, and asks: “How does the apparatus of theater support or disrupt a relationship?” Cleary’s residency concluded with workshop showings where select guests were invited to experience the performance as the sole audience member in a 155-person-capacity theater. Cleary, director Sara Lyons, lighting designer Madeline Best, and audience members from these preliminary viewings will come together for a discussion to reflect on their experiences as producers, contributors, and witnesses in this process.

Opening Reception | 2 New Exhibitions: Graphite Drawings and Sculptural Paintings


Devra Fox: Stem In this exhibition, consisting of thirteen graphite drawings, Fox captures the transformations we witness on a daily basis: in our physical bodies, emotional consciousnesses, and in the natural world. Depicting sinewy pieces of furniture varnished out of roots and branches, architectural elements taken over by nature, and imagined plants, Fox’s drawings embody the idea of growth in absence.  Kate Klingbeil: Uprooted A year in the making, this exhibition will include five sculptural paintings, eight sculptures in cast iron, brass, and bronze, and a stop-motion film investigating the underground as a metaphor for the human psyche. This poignant body of work investigates the cycle of uprooting, excavating, and emerging—a cycle universally experienced over the past eighteen months due to the pandemic

Discussion | Entangled Images: Perspectives on Indigenous Representation (online)


A conversation on countering historic tropes with contemporary scholarship, image-making, and creative expression Weathervanes are one of many American art forms that have long employed problematic stereotypes and romanticized symbolism in representations of Indigenous figures by non-Native artists. In the current exhibition American Weathervanes: The Art of the Winds, Joseph Zordan, consulting scholar and enrolled member of the Bad River Ojibwe, invites you to contend with these objects and the legacies of colonialism they represent, writing “Inevitably, such images tell us more about the people who made them than those they are said to represent.” This is a critical conversation with Joseph Zordan, Joe Baker, co-founder and Executive Director of the Lenape Center, and Nez Perce art historian Rachel Allen, as they consider these objects within broader histories of American and Native American art, and discuss the continuous work of countering historical tropes with contemporary scholarship, image-making, and creative expression.

Author Reading | Hannah Arendt: Life of the Political Thinker (online)


Hannah Arendt is one of the most renowned political thinkers of the twentieth century, and her work has never been more relevant than it is today. Born in Germany in 1906, Arendt published her first book at the age of twenty-three, before turning away from the world of academic philosophy to reckon with the rise of the Third Reich. After World War II, Arendt became one of the most prominent--and controversial--public intellectuals of her time, publishing influential works such as The Origins of Totalitarianism, The Human Condition, and Eichmann in Jerusalem. Author Samantha Rose Hill weaves together new biographical detail, archival documents, poems, and correspondence to reveal a woman whose passion for the life of the mind was nourished by her love of the world.

Talk | Space Juggling: A New Perspective on Space Art (online)


Space Juggling is a technique for juggling in weightlessness, discovered through a deep and lifelong embodiment practice and informed by scientific and mathematical investigations. This is the first fully developed circus art form designed for weightlessness -- a glimpse of the future of kinesthetic arts, about much more than the movement of juggling balls. This practice opens new opportunities to explore movement liberated from the vertical axis of Earth's gravity well, as well as new angles on perception, cognition, and object manipulation. The rotating reference frame reveals an expanded logic of motion, helping viewers to experience a non-gravitational world with the juggler. Viewing the recordings from these early experiments opens empathetic pathways, making visible the aesthetic and physical insights disclosed through what is, for now, an extraordinary perspective. Dr. Adam Dipert will share aspects of and stories about the process, philosophy, mathematics, and technique of Space Juggling -- as well as some of the first Space Juggling videos ever made -- and invite the audience to dream into a new dimension of artistic and scientific possibilities.
