Joe Guerriero: Waiting for Normal: Cuba and the United States
ArtRage Gallery

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

People feel an undeniable attraction to Cuba after visiting even once. It's mostly about the people— their warmth and friendliness, their art, music and culture. However, it is almost impossible to photograph or create art in Cuba without capturing the effects of the embargo. Photographer Joe Guerriero's photography and film work does just that, reflecting more than 20 years of spending time with the Cuban people and experiencing first hand the effects of the United States' continuing embargo of the island. He shows how the embargo affects the lives not only of Cubans but of those Cuban-Americans who still have relatives in Cuba.

Make a reservation.

A Legacy of Firsts: The Everson Collects
Everson Museum of Art

Everson Museum of Art
401 Harrison St., Syracuse

In 1911, the Syracuse Museum of Fine Arts (known today as the Everson) made history as the first museum in the country to declare that it would focus on collecting works made by American artists. This decision, implemented by Museum Director Fernando Carter, was the first of many made by directors that ultimately defined the Everson's collection as it exists today. This exhibition examines over one hundred years of the Museum's collecting priorities, from the Museum's earliest acquisitions in 1911 to work acquired in 2019

NOTE: Face masks required of all visitors, staff, and volunteers at all times. Fridays and Saturdays 10:00 am-12:00 pm are reserved for Everson members and high-risk individuals.

Fabiola Jean-Louis: Rewriting History
Point of Contact Gallery

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

Regarding Jean-Louis' exhibition, "Rewriting History," the HuffPost found that the "Victorian era dresses, fashioned almost entirely from paper, become actors in a photographic essay that challenges history, reality, and time. Visual, sculptural and performative at once, the work reels viewers into an alternate realm; one that heroically re-examines the past and thrusts the majesty of African ancestors — real and imagined — to the fore. Each image has its factual, historical connection and a narrative remixed via Fabiola's multi-dimensional lens. The dresses, and their environments, are imbued with vestiges of fantasy and futurism, creating impressions that are otherworldly, palpable, and highly persuasive."

Appointment required. Make an appointment.

Syracuse International Film Festival: Day 5
Syracuse International Film Festival

Price: Free
Online


7:00 pm
Hero (directed by Alessandro Casal, 5 minutes, Italy)
On a bright morning, a man sends a letter to his son as a legacy and walks away towards the future he has chosen

Progress (directed by Edward Salier & Patricia Bury, 8 minutes, U.S.)
Documentary short. We have to lose something to gain something...

Together (directed by Alessandro Saccomando, 15 minutes, Italy)
Two young brothers grew up quickly, first abandoned by their father and then orphaned by their mother. They will face many difficulties, but thanks to their strong bond they will go forward together creating a better future.

Libya: The Infernal Trap (directed by Julie Dungelhoeff, Catherine Norris Trent, and Abdallah Malkawi, 40 minutes, France)
In this exceptional documentary, the filmmakers Catherine Norris Trent, Julie Dungelhoeff and Abdallah Malkawi take viewers to the heart of the chaos that is present-day Libya; alternating between the front-lines of the current conflict and the huge, continuing migration crisis unfolding there. They follow a militia from the Libyan city of Misrata to the frontline of the war, which is taking place among abandoned homes on the southern outskirts of the capital city, Tripoli. They witness first-hand the fragmentation of forces battling eastern Libyan strongman Khalifa Haftar.

8:15 pm
Can You Hear Us Now? (directed by Jim Cricchi, 86 minutes, U.S.)
Small-town activism. Nail-biting elections. A last-minute power grab. In Wisconsin, where extreme partisanship has become the norm, voters are finding their lives increasingly irrelevant to state lawmakers. Through the stories of a working-class, single mother of five, a laid-off environmental educator, a retired public school teacher and a tireless voting rights activist, Can You Hear Us Now? unravels the ways that years of one-party rule have reshaped democracy in a state long known for its progressive history.

Lecture
 

6:30 PM, November 12



Visiting Artist Lecture Series: KARLINCHE
Syracuse University School of Art and Design

Price: Free
Online


Karla Rosas is KARLINCHE, an undocumented illustrator and painter born in Nuevo Laredo, Mexico, and based in New Orleans, Louisiana. Much of Karla's work explores the relationship between "illegality," family history, queerness, and self-identity. Karla's work is grounded in the idea that the personal is political, and she considers her art a form of reasserting her subjectivity and agency as an undocumented person in the United States. Karla's work has also been part of numerous political actions locally and nationally, including the Flowers on the Inside postcard campaign in partnership with CultureStrike, Casa Arcoiris, and Forward Together. In 2019, she was awarded the Define American Immigrant Artist Fellowship, one of eight artists selected nationally.

The lecture is available to the public via livestream on the Syracuse University Art Museum YouTube channel.

Talley’s Folly
Syracuse Stage
Robert Hupp, director

Online


Kate Hamill and Jason O'Connell star in Lanford Wilson's 1980 Pulitzer Prize-winning Valentine of a play. On July 4, 1944, Matt Friedman, a 40+ accountant and in love for the first time in his life, drives 200 miles to the heart of Missouri Christian farm country to propose to Sally Talley, ten years younger and seemingly not interested. Having been met at the door by Sally's shotgun toting brother—Jews not welcome here—Matt takes refuge in a Victorian folly of a boathouse on the nearby river, where Sally finds him. Cue moonlight and music (waltz, please), willows and woods. Can one enchanted evening change the course of two lives? Once upon a time—there was hope in the land.

The human race has lost individual integrity. As forced accountability they wear their actions, their crimes, as marks on their skin, to act as reminders and as warnings to others. Elmer arrives in this world naive and eager to fit in. As Elmer heads into the city, suddenly, he is pulled into a strangers' altercation when he witnesses a car collision with a cyclist. The driver, Clive, is riddled with marks and the cyclist Richard, is pummeling him.Without hesitation Elmer rushes to Clive's aid, but Clive and Richard are thrust into a purgatory underworld where their character and crimes are judged by an undulating force and Elmer sees his world frozen in time. Only forgiveness will bring both men back to Elmer's world alive.

Body Prop – Movement 1 (directed by M. Woods, 14 minutes, U.S.)
The vengeance of Hell boils in my heart. In your cold room. The silence that makes you mine. Fall, stars. She sat around and counted them all a million times. My name no one will know. And if my love were in vain. Oh God, I would want to die! She was the roughest, toughest frail. In your cold room look at the trembling stars. I am pining, I am tormented! But my mystery is closed in me. Have pity. I'll win at dawn and we must alas die. Have pity. Death and despair flame about me.

Undercurrent (directed by Weng Yu-Tong, 20 minutes, Taiwan)
In a winter evening of 1979, the arrest of anti-government protesters involved in the Formosa Incident is underway. The city is under curfew, but a teenage student, out of curiosity, follows a mysterious young man from a riverside path into an abandoned hut. They exchange their fear and build up a sense of mutual trust there. However, when the student is later caught by a plain-clothes police officer, the young man chooses to turn a blind eye. Living in Taiwan under martial law, are men constantly escaping from the government, the society, or the affection buried in their hearts?

Talley’s Folly
Syracuse Stage
Robert Hupp, director

Kate Hamill and Jason O'Connell star in Lanford Wilson's 1980 Pulitzer Prize-winning Valentine of a play. On July 4, 1944, Matt Friedman, a 40+ accountant and in love for the first time in his life, drives 200 miles to the heart of Missouri Christian farm country to propose to Sally Talley, ten years younger and seemingly not interested. Having been met at the door by Sally's shotgun toting brother—Jews not welcome here—Matt takes refuge in a Victorian folly of a boathouse on the nearby river, where Sally finds him. Cue moonlight and music (waltz, please), willows and woods. Can one enchanted evening change the course of two lives? Once upon a time—there was hope in the land.

Joe Guerriero: Waiting for Normal: Cuba and the United States
ArtRage Gallery

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

People feel an undeniable attraction to Cuba after visiting even once. It's mostly about the people— their warmth and friendliness, their art, music and culture. However, it is almost impossible to photograph or create art in Cuba without capturing the effects of the embargo. Photographer Joe Guerriero's photography and film work does just that, reflecting more than 20 years of spending time with the Cuban people and experiencing first hand the effects of the United States' continuing embargo of the island. He shows how the embargo affects the lives not only of Cubans but of those Cuban-Americans who still have relatives in Cuba.

12:00 pm
Age of Bryce (directed by David Feagan & Brian Elliott, 10 minutes, U.S.)
Smothered by an adoring, over-protective mom, 12-year-old Bryce Yancy Paul (Bip) is pushed to the brink of pubescent revolution. It's time to ripen. Bloom. Break the shackles of parental paranoia. It's the Age of Bryce. Sometimes a man's gotta do what a man's gotta do.

Passion Makes School (directed by Alfonso (Rino) Cac, 79 minutes, Italy)
Ivan is a 12-year-old boy who wants to make a documentary. He is looking for a topic that involves him and he interviews his classmates to find it. When spring arrives he is attracted by the beauty of nature and, with his video, he wants to participate in a competition. But together with his school he is involved in a race where you have to ride on static bikes to produce clean energy. In the classroom they talk about environmental crises and energy problems. During the holidays Ivan is more attentive to environmental problems and when he goes to the sea he tries to clean up a beach full of plastic. Back in school, he no longer thinks about competitions and discovers the importance of teamwork. There is no time to lose: the challenge for him and for the other kids is to believe in a possible solution for a problem that affects everyone but, above all, their future.

Clark and Lewis (directed by Cloe Rice, 13 minutes, U.S.)
It's your favorite 19th century explorers here, ready to do all the work without any help at all. Watch us explore the Louisiana Purchase, find an all water route to the Pacific Ocean (?), and maybe even find endangered woolly mammoths along the way. Forget everything you think you know about history because this semi-true documentary series is sure to reframe it, if not rewrite it.

Second Team Film (directed by Ria Pavia, 11 minutes, U.S.)
A scorned stand-in actor for a hit TV show distorts the script to publicly undress her costar.

Coffee and a Donut (directed by Cary Patrick Martin, 12 minutes U.S.)
A story of a young immigrant who knows no English, and his trials in....ordering breakfast at the local diner. Pablo is a young immigrant, new to the United States, and speaks no English. When he first comes into a diner, not knowing how to order, he mimics another customer. Thus, a "coffee and a donut" becomes his regular order. Meanwhile, more appetizing meals pass in front of him, which he has to figure out how to order while in a busy environment that leaves him isolated. He befriends Camila, an assertive Latina-American, who takes him under her wing while he learns how to start off with the most important meal of the day.

American Marriage (directed by Giorgio Arcelli Fontana, 15 minutes, Italy)

Bolero: A Global Hit (directed by Anne-Solen, 53 minutes, France)
It's a perpetual soundtrack for the world: a performance of Bolero is begun every 15 minutes. Ninety years after its creation, this documentary explores Ravel's masterpiece through the artists from many disciplines who have taken it on. With them we want to reveal the richness and ambiguity of this seem-ingly simple work, which has become a major influence on modern music and "pop culture", and to understand the driving forces behind its extraordinary story.

7:00 pm: IMAGING DISABILITY IN FILM SHOWCASE
Terraforma (directed by Drew MacPowell, 15 minutes, Israel)

And They Were Roommates: Navigating Inclusive Mentorship in Higher Education (directed by Kylie Walter, 39 minutes, U.S.)
And They Were Roommates: Navigating Inclusive Mentorship in Higher Education is a catalyst to transform the narrative around inclusive peer mentorship on college campuses. In the field of education, "inclusive" involves real, equitable and individualized opportunities for students with and without disabilities. The InclusiveU program at Syracuse University creates such educational and social opportunities in a higher education setting. Inclusive peer mentorship comes with a unique set of challenges, successes and emotions. The film follows the evolving relationship of Kylie (a junior studying Education) and her roommate Olivia (a non-matriculated freshman studying Studio Arts). Throughout the academic year, their vlogs expose the realities of inclusive mentorship from a student perspective. Interviews with eleven of their peers, fulfilling roles as both inclusive mentees and mentors, adds multiple perspectives.

8:00 pm

Fabiola Jean-Louis: Rewriting History
Point of Contact Gallery

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

Regarding Jean-Louis' exhibition, "Rewriting History," the HuffPost found that the "Victorian era dresses, fashioned almost entirely from paper, become actors in a photographic essay that challenges history, reality, and time. Visual, sculptural and performative at once, the work reels viewers into an alternate realm; one that heroically re-examines the past and thrusts the majesty of African ancestors — real and imagined — to the fore. Each image has its factual, historical connection and a narrative remixed via Fabiola's multi-dimensional lens. The dresses, and their environments, are imbued with vestiges of fantasy and futurism, creating impressions that are otherworldly, palpable, and highly persuasive."

jackie sumell is a prison abolitionist and multidisciplinary artist inspired most by the lives of everyday people. She has spent the last 2-decades working directly with incarcerated folx, most notably, her elders Herman Wallace and Albert Woodfox. Her work, anchored at the intersection of art, education, permaculture and social practice has been exhibited extensively throughout the U.S. and Europe. She has been the recipient of multiple residencies and fellowships including, but not limited to a: 2020 Art 4 Justice Fellowship, S.O.U.R.C.E. Fellowship, 2020 Creative Capital Grant, A Blade of Grass Fellowship, MSU's Critical Race Studies Fellowship, Robert Rauschenberg Artist-as-Activist Fellowship, Soros Justice Fellowship, Eyebeam Project Fellowship and a Schloss Solitude Residency Fellowship. sumell's collaboration with Herman Wallace (a prisoner-of-consciousness and member of the "Angola 3") was the subject of the Emmy Award-Winning documentary Herman's House (Best Artistic Documentary 2013). An ardent public speaker and organizer, sumell's work with Herman has positioned her at the forefront of the public campaign to end isolation in the United States, inviting us to imagine a landscape without prisons.

jackie's work stands at the intersection of social practice, mindfulness practices, and prison abolition. She received a B.S. from the College of Charleston, and M.F.A. from Stanford University. sumell currently resides in New Orleans Louisiana where she continues to work on Herman's House, Solitary Gardens, The Prisoner's Apothecary and several other community generated, advocacy based projects.

The lecture is available to the public via livestream on the Syracuse University Art Museum YouTube channel.

Talley’s Folly
Syracuse Stage
Robert Hupp, director

Online


Kate Hamill and Jason O'Connell star in Lanford Wilson's 1980 Pulitzer Prize-winning Valentine of a play. On July 4, 1944, Matt Friedman, a 40+ accountant and in love for the first time in his life, drives 200 miles to the heart of Missouri Christian farm country to propose to Sally Talley, ten years younger and seemingly not interested. Having been met at the door by Sally's shotgun toting brother—Jews not welcome here—Matt takes refuge in a Victorian folly of a boathouse on the nearby river, where Sally finds him. Cue moonlight and music (waltz, please), willows and woods. Can one enchanted evening change the course of two lives? Once upon a time—there was hope in the land.
