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

Deadlocked and Loaded: Disarming America
ArtRage Gallery

Price: Free, but reservations required for in-person viewing
ArtRage Gallery
505 Hawley Ave., Syracuse

"Deadlocked and Loaded: Disarming America" is a "locked and loaded" conversation through art, showcasing art in all media that addresses the culture of violence, systemic racism, police brutality, and gun issues in the United States—particularly in how it affects women and children.

This exhibition is curated by Karen Gutfreund of Syracuse. She is a partner in Gutfreund Cornett Art, a curatorial partnership that specializes in creating exhibitions in venues around the U.S. ?on themes of "art as activism" to stimulate dialog, ?raise consciousness ?and encourage social change.

Additional work by 12 artists is also on exhibit as part of this exhibition at the Community Folk Art Center Gallery and Point of Contact Gallery.

Make a reservation for in-person viewing.

View the exhibit virtually.

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.

From Domestic to Divine: Andean Ceramics from the Permanent Collection
Everson Museum of Art

Everson Museum of Art
401 Harrison St., Syracuse

The ancient Andean civilizations of South America were strikingly diverse in their religious beliefs and material cultures, but each developed complex ceramics for both domestic and ritual use. This exhibition features key pieces from the Museum's collection, including several recent acquisitions from the Nazca, Paracas, Moche, Chimu´, and Chavin cultures.

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.
