Adding and Subtracting- Tressa Jones and Tyler Nansen (Opening Reception)KOA Art Gallery, Blaisdell Hall11/12/2019 12:00:00 PM
On display from November 11 to December. Our landscape is full of opposites: mountaintops and river bottoms, piles and pits, growth and decay. As humans we continuously add to the landscape while also subtracting. These opposites conjure forms that may serve as metaphors for the human condition: hope and loss, longing and time, opportunity and distance. Drawing inspiration from the natural and built environments, Tressa Jones and Tyler Nansen have created works to translate visually the notion of opposites in the landscape while considering the human. These creations pose the question of how time and loss may be present in the natural and built environment. The result is an exhibition of pieces that interact with each other, space, and the viewer in a composition that positions landscape as a subtle and powerful communicator of the human condition.Image info: Jones Image: Horizon Line, 2,000 screen prints, 20' x 7" x 4', 2017 Nansen Image: Seven Blue Bird Houses, wood and rigid foam, 8’ x 8’ x 24’, 2016
The Division of Communication and the Arts presents THE MOORS by Jen SilvermanStudio Theater, Blaisdell Hall11/14/2019 7:30:00 PM
Directed by Dr. Kevin Ewert, Two sisters and a dog live out their lives on the bleak English moors and dream of love and power. The arrival of a hapless governess and a moor-hen set all three on a strange and dangerous path. The Moors is a dark comedy about love, desperation, and visibility. Like Bronte's Wuthering Heights (1847) crossed with Lanthimos' The Favourite (2018), but funnier and more vicious.
