Avian Journey

Avian Journey
Description:

Throughout history, birds have played an important role as a source of inspiration for artists. An exhibit by Tapestry Artist, Neysa Russo, brings to light this rich history and the everyday experiences we all enjoy on our avian journeys.
Inspired by woven tapestries, Middle Eastern rugs, antique embroidery patterns and designs from ancient pottery and carving; from the Phoenix rising to the Guardians of the Holy Grail to the Tree of Life, birds have been used to decorate clothing and homes for thousands of years. Not merely decorative, but often used with symbolism and meaning; from the spiritual power of the eagle to the doves of peace. Fertility, protection, symbolic meanings vary, but one thread binds them all, throughout the ages and around the world, the bird is meaningful to every culture.

Time: 10/10/18 10:00am - 11/10/18 5:00pm

Vice becomes virtue, or is it the other way around, as UVM Theatre presents Molière’s hilarious comedy Tartuffe.

There is never a dull moment in this fast-paced feast of words when the wealthy Orgon falls under the spell of the sly con artist Tartuffe. Will Orgon’s family bring him to his senses or will the wily Tartuffe succeed in stealing all of his wealth, as well as his wife and daughter. See this uproarious satire brought to life in a lush and visually stunning production on the Royall Tyler stage.

Description:

New England Now, Shelburne Museum’s inaugural exhibition in a curated biennial series featuring contemporary artists organized around thematic subject matters, will be on view from September 15, 2018 through January 13, 2019.

New England Now challenges the notion of the Northeast’s long-accepted stereotype as stagnant and quaint, and instead plumbs its evolving identities and complex beauty.

Tectonic Industries

Tectonic Industries
Description:

Tectonic Industries is a collaborative art partnership based in Portland, Maine, comprised of Danish artist, Lars Boye Jerlach, and British artist, Helen Stringfellow. Through sculpture, wall mounted instructional videos, physical surveys, and interactive activities that engage visitors, Tectonic Industries examine the artifice inherent within the creation of the modern myths and belief systems in popular culture. In Dreams Can Come True, the artists present a series of self-help questionnaires that look to address and solve visitor’s most pressing problems and thus help them to begin living the “life of their dreams.” Guided by a series of instructions, visitors navigate the installation in search of self-actualization which can be manifested in an interactive model they can build/leave in the gallery. Interactive and engaging, while balancing wry amusement with philosophical reflection, Dreams Can Come True, explores the impossibility of our collective, endless search for concrete answers and endeavor for self-improvement.

Pauline Jennings: Becoming Human

Pauline Jennings: Becoming Human
Description:

Becoming Human is an intermedia exhibition seeking to identify and dissolve barriers between human and wild in the Anthropocene. In the three-channel video and sound installation The Air Connects Us, two dancers can be followed as they navigate Shanghai’s bustling streets, urban forests and massive industrial sites in search of connections to wild. During the exhibit, Jennings will present a live duet, Sea Inside Our Skin, rooted in the Chinese maxim “飲水思源 (drink the water, remember its source). This duet invites the audience to witness how breath and water nourishes, propels and changes us from within. Project VT: Pauline Jennings' Becoming Human was directed by Double Vision choreographer and co-Artistic Director Pauline Jennings. Becoming Human is a collaboration with Double Vision’s Calvin Aham and Joshua Lacourse (movement), Sean Clute (music composition), Jessica Gomula (video direction), Allen Hahn (cinematography), Jack B. Du (photography) and Amy Nielson (costume consulting).

Project Vermont is a new series dedicated to experimentation by providing a setting for contemporary Vermont artists to push their artistic practice while creating new work. Presenting visual, performance, and interdisciplinary exploration from emerging to established artists, Project Vermont supports artists’ exploration of new ideas and challenges, enables innovation, and creates engagement between audience and artist.

“Sea Inside Our Skin” was made possible in part with a research and development residency and support by Vermont Performance Lab with support from the Vermont Community Foundation.
