Leslie Feinberg: Screened In, Looking Out -- A Disabilities Photo Exhibit
ArtRage Gallery

Price: Free, but reservations required
ArtRage Gallery
505 Hawley Ave., Syracuse

Leslie Feinberg (1949-2014) was a renowned trans activist, historian, writer and the author of the groundbreaking gender-nonconforming 1993 novel Stone Butch Blues. Feinberg made this photographic series between summer 2009 and winter 2011, when ze (ze and hir were Feinberg's preferred pronouns) relocated to Syracuse to live with hir spouse, Minnie Bruce Pratt, due to Feinberg's failing health resulting from long term Lyme+ disease.

Hir long-standing illness from Lyme+ disease was intensifying, complicated by anti-trans prejudice embedded in for-profit health care. Hir ability to complete writing projects was impaired and hir ability to visualize waned. Regardless of the impediments Leslie's illness presented for years, ze undertook this last photo project and never stopped organizing and advocating for justice and for liberation from oppression.

This exhibition at ArtRage Gallery, just a few blocks away from where the photographs were taken, features 29 newly created prints selected from the 119 photographs that make up the complete series. Also exhibited are photographs of Feinberg, which document five decades of activism, from the home albums of Minnie Bruce Pratt. Lastly, the exhibition includes several poems by Minnie Bruce Pratt from her recently published book Magnified, which is a collection of love poems written while Feinberg was gravely ill.

The Floating Bridge: Postmodern and Contemporary Japanese Ceramics
Everson Museum of Art

Everson Museum of Art
401 Harrison St., Syracuse

The Everson began collecting contemporary Japanese ceramics in earnest in the mid 1970s, an experimental period when artists were applying geometric forms and conceptual strategies to traditional materials and forms. The exhibition highlights this under-recognized generation of artists who are now credited with laying the groundwork for today's contemporary ceramic movement in Japan.

Everson Museum of Art

Price: Museum admission: $8 regular, $6 student/senior, free for members, children 12 and under, and military with ID
Everson Museum of Art
401 Harrison St., Syracuse

Although known primarily for her lustrous ceramic vessels, legendary artist Beatrice Wood was a prolific drawer with a penchant for depicting sidelong glances and body language between couples (and thruples!). Particularly relevant during a pandemic that will long be remembered for social distancing, Tête-à-Tête-à-Tête is a celebration of Wood's uncanny ability to capture the inherent drama of social interactions with a few deft strokes of her pen.

"Master Harold" ... and the Boys
Syracuse Stage
Gilbert McCauley, director

Price: Video on Demand: $30 individual, $60 household
Online


Written in 1982, "Master Harold" ... and the Boys ranks among the very best of the great South African playwright Athol Fugard's work. Set in 1950 in Port Elizabeth, this remarkable play exposes the corrosiveness of systemic racism with raw, unsentimental honesty. The play is autobiographical ("the most intensely personal thing I have ever written" - Fugard) and originates in a friendship between a white teenager and a Black man, who is a kind of surrogate father and an employee of the family's struggling tea room. When stressful circumstances overwhelm the teen, he lashes out in misdirected and emotionally devastating fury that in an instant threatens to undermine years of affection. Heartfelt, revelatory and a lasting tribute from the playwright to "the most beautiful friend I ever had."

Syracuse Opera

Price: Free

This livestreamed performance will be simulcast on WCNY-TV and WCNY.org.

The premiere of No Cowards in Our Band, a musical drama based on the life and work of abolitionist Frederick Douglass. Created by Anthony Knight and Wayne Sanders, this musical drama highlights the history of how a young runaway slave (Frederick Douglass) became a great abolitionist and one of the most influential Americans in history. A great orator, Douglass' own poignant words are set against the backdrop of beloved African American spirituals revealing his significance as a social reformer.

The production features Masud Olufani in the role of Frederick Douglass, as well as a trio of principal vocal artists of international acclaim including Kearstin Piper Brown, soprano; Chauncey Packer, tenor; and Gregory Sheppard, bass. Also joining the cast is a gospel quartet of Syracuse artists including Sonya Hines, Marcia Hagan, Sandra Dee Miller, and Rev. Phil Turner.

Comb Your Hair (or You'll Look Like a Slave)
Paul Robeson Performing Arts Company

Price: $20 via check, $23 via PayPal
Online


You're standing there and random people touch your hair. Some even feel requesting permission is honorable. Your hair precedes you: at an interview, at a party! This is the world of Leelee Jackson's Comb Your Hair where asking permission is profoundly the lesser of all evils. It is uniquely an African American "hair" memoir.

The cast includes Nya Jordan, Safia Rahim, Vanessa Johnson, Karin Franklin-King, with music direction by Marcia Hagan.

You're invited to join them and the director for a talkback on July 10 at 7:00 pm. It's the last day the performance will be streamed and everyone is invited to dialogue (ticket holder or not). Talkback Zoom link will be posted on Facebook and sent to ticket-holders.

For tickets or more information, visit theprpac.org/syr/event.

NOTE: For those who cannot stream or would prefer to see the performance with other people, there will be an in-person large-screen viewing at ArtRage gallery on Sunday, July 11 at 4:00 pm. Limited seating, reservations required.
