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.

I and You
Syracuse Stage
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.

Working: A Musical
Syracuse University Drama Department
Rodney Hudson, director

Price: Pay what you wish
Online


Based on Studs Terkel's best-selling book of interviews with American workers, Working paints a vivid portrait of the people the world so often takes for granted: the schoolteacher, the phone operator, the food server, the millworker, the mason, and the stay-at-home parent, just to name a few. Nominated for six Tony Awards, Working received a contemporary make-over in 2012 and features new songs by Tony Award-winning Lin-Manuel Miranda, as well as favorites by Stephen Schwartz, Craig Carnelia, and James Taylor. With most professions updated, the show's power still resides in the core truths that transcend specific occupations; the key is how people's relationships to their work ultimately reveal key aspects of their humanity, regardless of the trappings of the job itself. Musical Direction by Brian Cimmet; choreography by Bradley Stone.

Please note: the performers are masked and distanced throughout the show.

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.

I and You
Syracuse Stage
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.

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.

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.
