Karolina Karlic: Rubberlands
Light Work Gallery

Price: Free
Light Work Gallery
316 Waverly Ave., Syracuse University, Syracuse

Karolina Karlic's "Rubberlands" is an ongoing photographic survey that maps the social and ecological impacts of rubber manufacturing. Following the trajectory of the artist's earlier work exploring the automobile industry in Michigan, "Rubberlands" proceeds from Midwest cities like Detroit and Akron, Ohio — once auto capitals of the world and now entry points for commodities through globalized networks. Connecting the company archives of Henry Ford, Goodyear, Goodrich, General Tire, and Firestone, Karlic traces the evolution of an industry that relies heavily on outsourcing of the Hevea brasiliensis (Amazonian rubber tree). Her photographic fieldwork in Brazil has taken her to manufacturing plants in Salvador and Itaparica, Michelin rubber plantations in the Atlantic forest, a fisherman's village on the coastal rivers of Itubera in Bahia, and the vestiges of Fordlândia, Henry Ford's planned community in the Amazon.

Karlic reveals threatened landscapes, sites of reforestation, and working factories against the backdrop of their surrounding communities — scenes where living things are transformed into assets and removed from their lifeworlds to supply the demands of capital. By weaving together historical archives and contemporary renderings of environs that production has largely shaped, Karlic moves beyond capturing a static place and time, instead configuring a dynamic space for contemplating the inextricable social and personal bonds that surround labor and natural resources. Here, she invites the viewer into a new imaginary where historical consciousness is critical in reflecting on our relationship to consumption.

Design for Living (1933)
Syracuse Cinephile Society

Price: $3.50 non-members, $3 members
Spaghetti Warehouse
689 N. Clinton St., Syracuse

Director: Ernst Lubitsch
Cast: Gary Cooper, Fredric March, Miriam Hopkins, Edward Everett Horton

The classic film version of Noel Coward's stage comedy. A free-thinking woman (Hopkins) can't decide between two men (Cooper and March), so she suggests that all three of them live together in a platonic relationship. It seems like a good idea . . . for a while. One of the wildest comedies from the Pre-Code era.

Big Band Festival
CNY Jazz Arts Foundation

Price: $10 adults, $3 students
Jazz Central
441 E. Washington St., Syracuse

5:30 pm: Stan Colella All-Stars
7:30 pm: University of Michigan Jazz Ensemble
8:30 pm: Micro Big Band

The evening opens with a set by the Stan Colella Parks & Recreation All-Stars, the youth orchestra of CNY Jazz in partnership with the City of Syracuse. They will be mentored by clinicians from the ranks of the University of Michigan Jazz Ensemble.

Following their set, the University of Michigan big band takes the stage, under the direction of Ellen Rowe, Director of Jazz Studies and internationally known jazz pianist. Rowe is a trailblazer in jazz, the first female named as chair of a major university jazz department in the world.

The evening concludes with a debut set by the new Micro Big Band, led by Maynard Ferguson alumnus and lead alto saxophonist Mike Dubaniewicz. The ten-piece "little big band" plays a combination of swing, groove-oriented funk, and Latin selections. The MBB also performs original compositions, in addition to the music of classic big band leaders such as Maynard Ferguson, Count Basie, and others.

Alice in Chains
Landmark Theatre

Price: $45-$71
Landmark Theatre
362 S. Salina St., Syracuse

Though their earliest origins lay in '80s-style glam metal, Seattle's Alice in Chains became one of the signature bands — along with Pearl Jam, Soundgarden, and Nirvana — associated with the 1990s' Grunge movement. Signed to Columbia Records in 1989, AiC vocalist Layne Staley, guitarist Jerry Cantrell, bassist Mike Starr and drummer Sean Kinney developed a distinctive style blending melancholy vocal harmonies, downcast lyrics, and contrasting hard and soft elements — elements that reflected their inspired creative duality across two albums featuring mostly electric alternative metal (1990's "Facelift" and 1992's "Dirt") and two EPs of introspective acoustic music (1992's "Sap" and 1994's "Jar of Flies"). By the second half of the '90s, drug abuse had torn the band apart: first leading to the replacement of Starr with new bassist Mike Inez (in 1993) and, later, Staley's slow descent into heroin addiction (both musicians are now deceased), and a long hiatus from touring and recording. Finally, Cantrell, Kinney. and Inez resurrected Alice in Chains with new singer/guitarist William DuVall in 2005, and have since toured consistently and released a pair of well-received LPs, Black Gives Way Blue (2009) and The Devil Put The Dinosaurs Here (2013).

Hiding in Plain Sight
Community Folk Art Center

Community Folk Art Center
805 E. Genesee St., Syracuse

In an age where judgement is shaped by "alternative facts," the artworks in "Hiding in Plain Sight" do not attempt to offer any absolute truths or solutions, because the truth is unimaginable.

"Hiding in Plain Sight" features the work of Syracuse University's 2018 MFA candidates from the College of Visual and Performing Arts' School of Art and Department of Transmedia. The artworks represent the culmination of a three-year period of critical investigation and introspection, marked by a new, self-led shift toward interdisciplinary experimentation. The result is an array of artworks spanning a wide range of mediums and forms that blur the boundaries between traditional modes of art-making, and through their process, material, and staging, subvert our perception of reality.

Curated by Shehab Awad, the M.F.A. exhibition is divided among three Syracuse University exhibition spaces and features 31 artists. The participating venues include SUArt Galleries, Point of Contact Gallery, and Community Folk Art Center.

Americans in Venice: Late 19th and Early 20th Century Prints
SU Art Galleries

SU Art Galleries, Shaffer Art Building
Syracuse University, Syracuse

"Americans in Venice: Late 19th and Early 20th Century Prints," curated by SUArt Galleries director Domenic Iacono, presents six prints by James McNeill Whistler from this period, placing them alongside the work of other Americans who were practicing in Italy in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. The juxtaposition of these works allows the viewer to appreciate Whistler's innovations and his effect on the artists who followed him. Artists such as Mortimer Menpes, Frank Duveneck, Otto Bacher, and Joseph Pennell owe much to Whistler's innovative style and approach and, in turn, their work had an impact on the artists who made prints of Venice during the 20th century.

Hiding in Plain Sight
Point of Contact Gallery

Price: Free
Point of Contact Gallery
350 W. Fayette St., Syracuse

In an age where judgement is shaped by "alternative facts," the artworks in "Hiding in Plain Sight" do not attempt to offer any absolute truths or solutions, because the truth is unimaginable.

"Hiding in Plain Sight" features the work of Syracuse University's 2018 MFA candidates from the College of Visual and Performing Arts' School of Art and Department of Transmedia. The artworks represent the culmination of a three-year period of critical investigation and introspection, marked by a new, self-led shift toward interdisciplinary experimentation. The result is an array of artworks spanning a wide range of mediums and forms that blur the boundaries between traditional modes of art-making, and through their process, material, and staging, subvert our perception of reality.

Curated by Shehab Awad, curator of exhibitions and programs at the Institute of Arab and Islamic Art in New York City, the MFA exhibition is divided among three Syracuse University exhibition spaces and features 31 artists. The participating venues include SUArt Galleries, Point of Contact Gallery, and Community Folk Art Center.

The Point of Contact exhibit features the work Eric Charlton, Joan Farrenkopf, Marilyn Koch, Jo Yu Lee, Katie Levesque, and Luxin Zhang.

Featuring a diverse array of paintings, sculptures, video and installations, "Hiding in Plain Sight" represents the culmination of a three-year period of critical investigation and introspection, marked by a significant, self-led shift toward multidisciplinary experimentation. The result is a collection of works which, through their staging and materiality, radicalize traditional modes of art-making and subvert our perception of space and reality.

Karolina Karlic: Rubberlands
Light Work Gallery

Price: Free
Light Work Gallery
316 Waverly Ave., Syracuse University, Syracuse

Karolina Karlic's "Rubberlands" is an ongoing photographic survey that maps the social and ecological impacts of rubber manufacturing. Following the trajectory of the artist's earlier work exploring the automobile industry in Michigan, "Rubberlands" proceeds from Midwest cities like Detroit and Akron, Ohio — once auto capitals of the world and now entry points for commodities through globalized networks. Connecting the company archives of Henry Ford, Goodyear, Goodrich, General Tire, and Firestone, Karlic traces the evolution of an industry that relies heavily on outsourcing of the Hevea brasiliensis (Amazonian rubber tree). Her photographic fieldwork in Brazil has taken her to manufacturing plants in Salvador and Itaparica, Michelin rubber plantations in the Atlantic forest, a fisherman's village on the coastal rivers of Itubera in Bahia, and the vestiges of Fordlândia, Henry Ford's planned community in the Amazon.

Karlic reveals threatened landscapes, sites of reforestation, and working factories against the backdrop of their surrounding communities — scenes where living things are transformed into assets and removed from their lifeworlds to supply the demands of capital. By weaving together historical archives and contemporary renderings of environs that production has largely shaped, Karlic moves beyond capturing a static place and time, instead configuring a dynamic space for contemplating the inextricable social and personal bonds that surround labor and natural resources. Here, she invites the viewer into a new imaginary where historical consciousness is critical in reflecting on our relationship to consumption.

Within Our Gates: Site and Memory in the American Landscape, the Paintings of Keith Morris Washington
ArtRage Gallery

Price: Free
ArtRage Gallery
505 Hawley Ave., Syracuse

The practice of human sacrifice, known as lynching, has been carried out openly, as a public social ritual, in the United States from the very founding of the Republic. "Within Our Gates: Site and Memory in the American Landscape" is designed to inform a broad audience about this phenomenon of lynching as human sacrifice within the context of the landscape. The term lynching faded from popular usage with the advent of the 1960s civil rights movement. However, death by lynching is still exercised today as evidenced by the murders of James Byrd, Jr., Matthew Shepherd, Billy Jack Gaither, and Raynard Johnson. Only the taboo nature of this ritual has changed. — excerpt from Keith Morris Washington's artist statement

Hiding in Plain Sight
Point of Contact Gallery

Price: Free
Point of Contact Gallery
350 W. Fayette St., Syracuse

In an age where judgement is shaped by "alternative facts," the artworks in "Hiding in Plain Sight" do not attempt to offer any absolute truths or solutions, because the truth is unimaginable.

"Hiding in Plain Sight" features the work of Syracuse University's 2018 MFA candidates from the College of Visual and Performing Arts' School of Art and Department of Transmedia. The artworks represent the culmination of a three-year period of critical investigation and introspection, marked by a new, self-led shift toward interdisciplinary experimentation. The result is an array of artworks spanning a wide range of mediums and forms that blur the boundaries between traditional modes of art-making, and through their process, material, and staging, subvert our perception of reality.

Curated by Shehab Awad, curator of exhibitions and programs at the Institute of Arab and Islamic Art in New York City, the MFA exhibition is divided among three Syracuse University exhibition spaces and features 31 artists. The participating venues include SUArt Galleries, Point of Contact Gallery, and Community Folk Art Center.

The Point of Contact exhibit features the work Eric Charlton, Joan Farrenkopf, Marilyn Koch, Jo Yu Lee, Katie Levesque, and Luxin Zhang.

Featuring a diverse array of paintings, sculptures, video and installations, "Hiding in Plain Sight" represents the culmination of a three-year period of critical investigation and introspection, marked by a significant, self-led shift toward multidisciplinary experimentation. The result is a collection of works which, through their staging and materiality, radicalize traditional modes of art-making and subvert our perception of space and reality.

Within Our Gates: Site and Memory in the American Landscape, the Paintings of Keith Morris Washington
ArtRage Gallery

Price: Free
ArtRage Gallery
505 Hawley Ave., Syracuse

The practice of human sacrifice, known as lynching, has been carried out openly, as a public social ritual, in the United States from the very founding of the Republic. "Within Our Gates: Site and Memory in the American Landscape" is designed to inform a broad audience about this phenomenon of lynching as human sacrifice within the context of the landscape. The term lynching faded from popular usage with the advent of the 1960s civil rights movement. However, death by lynching is still exercised today as evidenced by the murders of James Byrd, Jr., Matthew Shepherd, Billy Jack Gaither, and Raynard Johnson. Only the taboo nature of this ritual has changed. — excerpt from Keith Morris Washington's artist statement

Karolina Karlic: Rubberlands
Light Work Gallery

Price: Free
Light Work Gallery
316 Waverly Ave., Syracuse University, Syracuse

Karolina Karlic's "Rubberlands" is an ongoing photographic survey that maps the social and ecological impacts of rubber manufacturing. Following the trajectory of the artist's earlier work exploring the automobile industry in Michigan, "Rubberlands" proceeds from Midwest cities like Detroit and Akron, Ohio — once auto capitals of the world and now entry points for commodities through globalized networks. Connecting the company archives of Henry Ford, Goodyear, Goodrich, General Tire, and Firestone, Karlic traces the evolution of an industry that relies heavily on outsourcing of the Hevea brasiliensis (Amazonian rubber tree). Her photographic fieldwork in Brazil has taken her to manufacturing plants in Salvador and Itaparica, Michelin rubber plantations in the Atlantic forest, a fisherman's village on the coastal rivers of Itubera in Bahia, and the vestiges of Fordlândia, Henry Ford's planned community in the Amazon.

Karlic reveals threatened landscapes, sites of reforestation, and working factories against the backdrop of their surrounding communities — scenes where living things are transformed into assets and removed from their lifeworlds to supply the demands of capital. By weaving together historical archives and contemporary renderings of environs that production has largely shaped, Karlic moves beyond capturing a static place and time, instead configuring a dynamic space for contemplating the inextricable social and personal bonds that surround labor and natural resources. Here, she invites the viewer into a new imaginary where historical consciousness is critical in reflecting on our relationship to consumption.

"Americans in Venice: Late 19th and Early 20th Century Prints," curated by SUArt Galleries director Domenic Iacono, presents six prints by James McNeill Whistler from this period, placing them alongside the work of other Americans who were practicing in Italy in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. The juxtaposition of these works allows the viewer to appreciate Whistler's innovations and his effect on the artists who followed him. Artists such as Mortimer Menpes, Frank Duveneck, Otto Bacher, and Joseph Pennell owe much to Whistler's innovative style and approach and, in turn, their work had an impact on the artists who made prints of Venice during the 20th century.

Born of a low budget 1960s science fiction movie, the carnivorous plant-like alien, named Audrey II, arrived in a vehicle called Little Shop of Horrors and came armed with an infectious 50s/60s pop-inflected musical score and a delightfully quirky love story. Horticulture never seemed so dangerous, or so much fun. Warning: don't feed the plants.

Hiding in Plain Sight
Community Folk Art Center

Community Folk Art Center
805 E. Genesee St., Syracuse

In an age where judgement is shaped by "alternative facts," the artworks in "Hiding in Plain Sight" do not attempt to offer any absolute truths or solutions, because the truth is unimaginable.

"Hiding in Plain Sight" features the work of Syracuse University's 2018 MFA candidates from the College of Visual and Performing Arts' School of Art and Department of Transmedia. The artworks represent the culmination of a three-year period of critical investigation and introspection, marked by a new, self-led shift toward interdisciplinary experimentation. The result is an array of artworks spanning a wide range of mediums and forms that blur the boundaries between traditional modes of art-making, and through their process, material, and staging, subvert our perception of reality.

Curated by Shehab Awad, the M.F.A. exhibition is divided among three Syracuse University exhibition spaces and features 31 artists. The participating venues include SUArt Galleries, Point of Contact Gallery, and Community Folk Art Center.

Americans in Venice: Late 19th and Early 20th Century Prints
SU Art Galleries

SU Art Galleries, Shaffer Art Building
Syracuse University, Syracuse

"Americans in Venice: Late 19th and Early 20th Century Prints," curated by SUArt Galleries director Domenic Iacono, presents six prints by James McNeill Whistler from this period, placing them alongside the work of other Americans who were practicing in Italy in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. The juxtaposition of these works allows the viewer to appreciate Whistler's innovations and his effect on the artists who followed him. Artists such as Mortimer Menpes, Frank Duveneck, Otto Bacher, and Joseph Pennell owe much to Whistler's innovative style and approach and, in turn, their work had an impact on the artists who made prints of Venice during the 20th century.

Within Our Gates: Site and Memory in the American Landscape, the Paintings of Keith Morris Washington
ArtRage Gallery

Price: Free
ArtRage Gallery
505 Hawley Ave., Syracuse

The practice of human sacrifice, known as lynching, has been carried out openly, as a public social ritual, in the United States from the very founding of the Republic. "Within Our Gates: Site and Memory in the American Landscape" is designed to inform a broad audience about this phenomenon of lynching as human sacrifice within the context of the landscape. The term lynching faded from popular usage with the advent of the 1960s civil rights movement. However, death by lynching is still exercised today as evidenced by the murders of James Byrd, Jr., Matthew Shepherd, Billy Jack Gaither, and Raynard Johnson. Only the taboo nature of this ritual has changed. — excerpt from Keith Morris Washington's artist statement

Karolina Karlic: Rubberlands
Light Work Gallery

Price: Free
Light Work Gallery
316 Waverly Ave., Syracuse University, Syracuse

Karolina Karlic's "Rubberlands" is an ongoing photographic survey that maps the social and ecological impacts of rubber manufacturing. Following the trajectory of the artist's earlier work exploring the automobile industry in Michigan, "Rubberlands" proceeds from Midwest cities like Detroit and Akron, Ohio — once auto capitals of the world and now entry points for commodities through globalized networks. Connecting the company archives of Henry Ford, Goodyear, Goodrich, General Tire, and Firestone, Karlic traces the evolution of an industry that relies heavily on outsourcing of the Hevea brasiliensis (Amazonian rubber tree). Her photographic fieldwork in Brazil has taken her to manufacturing plants in Salvador and Itaparica, Michelin rubber plantations in the Atlantic forest, a fisherman's village on the coastal rivers of Itubera in Bahia, and the vestiges of Fordlândia, Henry Ford's planned community in the Amazon.

Karlic reveals threatened landscapes, sites of reforestation, and working factories against the backdrop of their surrounding communities — scenes where living things are transformed into assets and removed from their lifeworlds to supply the demands of capital. By weaving together historical archives and contemporary renderings of environs that production has largely shaped, Karlic moves beyond capturing a static place and time, instead configuring a dynamic space for contemplating the inextricable social and personal bonds that surround labor and natural resources. Here, she invites the viewer into a new imaginary where historical consciousness is critical in reflecting on our relationship to consumption.

Storch Theater, Syracuse Stage

In 1982 a space alien invaded Off-Off-Broadway, and in a quest for world domination quickly spawned iterations Off-Broadway, in London's West End, on film, on Broadway, on tours throughout America, in countries around the world, and most insidiously in high schools and community theaters everywhere. Born of a low budget 1960s science fiction movie, the carnivorous plant-like alien, named Audrey II, arrived in a vehicle called Little Shop of Horrors and came armed with an infectious 50s/60s pop-inflected musical score and a delightfully quirky love story. Horticulture never seemed so dangerous, or so much fun. Warning: don't feed the plants.

Book by Howard Ashman, music by Alan Menken, lyrics by Howard Ashman. Choreography by Andrea Leigh-Smith.

Adam Sudmann on My Lucky Tummy & With Love
Strathmore Speakers Series

Price: Free

W. Colvin St. and Summit Ave., Syracuse

Adam says:
I grew up in food. Mom studied under Julia Child. I remember nights of after-school prep, peeling quail eggs (badly) and stuffing a million mushroom caps (groggily). I captained my first wedding the summer I turned 16.

Later I went to grad school for Critical Theory (too recherché), then got into events in NYC, running big, splashy soirees for Gucci and Bentley and Krug. In the months I wasn't working for the $50,000 handbag crowd, I'd disappear to Cameroon, Cambodia, Morocco, India, Nicaragua, Turkey, etc., indulging a yen for travel.

One day I met a waitress with dark brown eyes. We hatched a plan to move upstate to raise a family. I had this long-simmering dream of building a multinational food court, stalls run by people from all over, making what they knew, what they loved. My therapist warned me off moving up north, far from polyglot NYC. Where would we find talented people arrived from all over, bearing recipes and whisks and well-loved stockpots?

(My therapist – usually right – was wrong this time.)

Little Shop of Horrors
Syracuse University Drama Department
Brian Cimmet, director

Storch Theater, Syracuse Stage
820 E. Genesee St., Syracuse

In 1982 a space alien invaded Off-Off-Broadway, and in a quest for world domination quickly spawned iterations Off-Broadway, in London's West End, on film, on Broadway, on tours throughout America, in countries around the world, and most insidiously in high schools and community theaters everywhere. Born of a low budget 1960s science fiction movie, the carnivorous plant-like alien, named Audrey II, arrived in a vehicle called Little Shop of Horrors and came armed with an infectious 50s/60s pop-inflected musical score and a delightfully quirky love story. Horticulture never seemed so dangerous, or so much fun. Warning: don't feed the plants.

Book by Howard Ashman, music by Alan Menken, lyrics by Howard Ashman. Choreography by Andrea Leigh-Smith.

Karolina Karlic: Rubberlands
Light Work Gallery

Price: Free
Light Work Gallery
316 Waverly Ave., Syracuse University, Syracuse

Karolina Karlic's "Rubberlands" is an ongoing photographic survey that maps the social and ecological impacts of rubber manufacturing. Following the trajectory of the artist's earlier work exploring the automobile industry in Michigan, "Rubberlands" proceeds from Midwest cities like Detroit and Akron, Ohio — once auto capitals of the world and now entry points for commodities through globalized networks. Connecting the company archives of Henry Ford, Goodyear, Goodrich, General Tire, and Firestone, Karlic traces the evolution of an industry that relies heavily on outsourcing of the Hevea brasiliensis (Amazonian rubber tree). Her photographic fieldwork in Brazil has taken her to manufacturing plants in Salvador and Itaparica, Michelin rubber plantations in the Atlantic forest, a fisherman's village on the coastal rivers of Itubera in Bahia, and the vestiges of Fordlândia, Henry Ford's planned community in the Amazon.

Karlic reveals threatened landscapes, sites of reforestation, and working factories against the backdrop of their surrounding communities — scenes where living things are transformed into assets and removed from their lifeworlds to supply the demands of capital. By weaving together historical archives and contemporary renderings of environs that production has largely shaped, Karlic moves beyond capturing a static place and time, instead configuring a dynamic space for contemplating the inextricable social and personal bonds that surround labor and natural resources. Here, she invites the viewer into a new imaginary where historical consciousness is critical in reflecting on our relationship to consumption.
