    NAGASAKI – Wilderness Mute Performance

    September 21, 2018, 7:30am8:30pm

    NAGASAKI – Wilderness Muteis a collaborative multidisciplinary work, involving music, image, poetry and Butoh dance, inspired by the nuclear bombing of Nagasaki on August 9, 1945. The work aims to raise awareness about the dangers of a new nuclear escalation on a worldwide level, in light of the current international political and military tensions. Nuclear attacks and nuclear disasters, those past and those looming today, have devastating environmental effects on a global level, impacting directly on our lives and those of future generations. The work speaks of the dehumanization and irreversible damage caused to planet Earth, our global home, forcing us to consider all decisions about nuclear armament, politics, and power. Composed by the internationally renowned and award-winning musician, Keiko Fujiie, Wilderness Muteis based on the poetic text of Hayashi Kyoko and draws from the firsthand accounts of victims of the bombing.

    Students are invited to Dick Waller’s ArtPlace to discuss the use of phones to document their lives and help answer the question, “Would you be willing to share as much of yourself without the speed of technology? Would the impulse be there if you had to use traditional cameras and film based processes that eliminate the instantaneous workflow embedded in social media platforms?”Students are asked to bring one of their own photos or take a picture during the workshop in order to capture an image that they feel represents the speed of technology. The students will share one photo to help build the groups interpretation of the discussion. The photos will be printed and displayed in the gallery during the remainder of the Frame Rate exhibit.

The finished artwork will be displayed in the gallery until the Frame Rate exhibit closing in November. Artists may attend for free if bringing their own supplies or pay $15 to reserve canvas/paper and painting or drawing set.

    Wing Young Huie’s dynamic slideshow lecture confronts many divisive social issues, such as cultural bias, immigration, religion, and social disconnection. While sharing anecdotes and insights into his creative process—and his abilities to intimately interact with thousands of strangers—he also discusses the personal and professional challenges in his 35-year journey of becoming a celebrated artist. Contrasting points of views are engaged when Wing presents his photographs that are open to interpretation and asks participants, “What do you see?” He then facilitates a dialogue before revealing the stories behind the photographs that furthers the complexities of cultural and personal perceptions, creating a challenging yet safe environment for deep discussion. How are we impacted by the daily consumption of countless images created by marketing forces, the media, and popular entertainment? How can we differentiate our authentic selves from idealized realities? Do we become what we see? In other words: How do photographs form us?

    Picture People: Collaborative Tactics in Photography

    September 22, 2018, 2:00pm5:00pm

    Hosted by Eliza Gregory and Gemma Rose-Turnbull, this workshop invites artists and arts educators to explore what happens when the disciplines of photography and social practice merge. For the first half, we will share inspirational projects and personal experiences as a group, in addition to creating a matrix of techniques, resources, and case studies pulled from the leaders’ own research. In the second half of the workshop, we will work in teams to map out potential project structures, role play to test out different mechanisms of exchange, and begin to work out the logistical complexities of particular practices. In the first half, we’ll pool our knowledge and develop a common vocabulary of references and strategies, and in the second half we’ll put that knowledge to use in advancing participants’ own goals. Artists and educators at any stage of thinking about this topic are welcome. (If you’ve never thought about it before but feel curious, that’s fine! If you’ve done a lot of work in this area, that’s great too–we’ll put your knowledge to work.) One of the goals of this workshop is to convene a dialogue that brings the Cincinnati arts community together to share ideas and experiences relating to this topic.
