From Domestic to Divine: Andean Ceramics from the Permanent Collection

Steffani Jemison: Figure 8
Urban Video Project

Everson Museum of Art Plaza
401 Harrison St., Syracuse

For nearly a decade, Brooklyn-based artist Steffani Jemison has been deeply invested in examining the ways knowledge is constructed and legitimized. This interest stems from a fascination with frameworks of interpretation and narration, as well as critical theory and Black vernacular traditions. She explores these concepts through a practice that encompasses sculpture, video, installation, sound, and fiction writing.

Light Work commissioned Steffani Jemison to create new work for Urban Video Project as part of an annual moving image commission program. The new work, Figure 8, comes out of Jemison's collaboration with athlete Alexis Page.

The video will be projected onto the north facade of the Everson Museum beginning at dusk.

Melissa Crespo, director

Price: $30 individual, $60 household
Online


Isolated due to a life-threatening illness, Caroline hasn't been to school in months. Confined to her room, she relies on Instagram, Facebook and a stuffed turtle for company. That is until classmate Anthony bursts in—unexpectedly and bearing waffle fries, some Walt Whitman poetry, and a literature project due the next day. He's enthusiastic, athletic, and charming in a nerdy sort of way, but Caroline is wary. Still, an unlikely friendship develops as a run of the mill homework assignment reveals the pair's hopes and dreams, and they come to realize that Whitman's sense of interconnectedness means more to their lives than they could have imagined. This sharp, funny, and tender-hearted play by Lauren Gunderson won the Steinberg/American Theatre Critics Association New Play Award in 2014.

Join us by zoom to hear from artists in their studios and chefs in their Salt City Market kitchens. We've selected artist/chef pairings that will awaken all the senses and introduce you to some incredible Syracuse talent.

Chef Sleyrow Mason is the owner and operator of SOULutions, located at the Salt City Market. Sley is an industry veteran who began cooking alongside his mother at the early age of 5. It was in the kitchen, with his mother, that he learned some of the basics of traditional southern dishes. In his later years, Sleyrow attended a culinary program offered by Syracuse's Sydney Johnson center. After its completion, he began working in some of Syracuse's finest restaurants, honing his skills as a certified grillmaster, kitchen manager, and sous chef. Upon the passing of his mother, Chef Sley began cooking for his family and friends as a way to keep them all connected. Now he is serving up his family recipes at Salt City Market and at catered events.

Vanessa Johnson is a griot or storyteller. She tells traditional tales from Africa and African American culture through story performances, one woman shows, mixed media quilts, plays, short stories, and sing tales with her storytelling band, Matie Massie. Her tales of social justice include the voices of the enslaved and of abolitionists who fought against slavery in the United States. She lends her voice to the diverse activists of the Women's Rights and Civil Rights Movements. She also tells Earth-Justice Tales and shares biographical tales of living as an African-American woman in the U.S. and part-time in Ghana.

Syracuse Stage

Isolated due to a life-threatening illness, Caroline hasn't been to school in months. Confined to her room, she relies on Instagram, Facebook and a stuffed turtle for company. That is until classmate Anthony bursts in—unexpectedly and bearing waffle fries, some Walt Whitman poetry, and a literature project due the next day. He's enthusiastic, athletic, and charming in a nerdy sort of way, but Caroline is wary. Still, an unlikely friendship develops as a run of the mill homework assignment reveals the pair's hopes and dreams, and they come to realize that Whitman's sense of interconnectedness means more to their lives than they could have imagined. This sharp, funny, and tender-hearted play by Lauren Gunderson won the Steinberg/American Theatre Critics Association New Play Award in 2014.
