Light Work Gallery

The 2022 Newhouse Photography Annual features work by photography students in S.I. Newhouse School of Public Communications at Syracuse University. The exhibition is a collection of 28 photographs by students enrolled in the Visual Communications Department.

The exhibiting artists are Ryan Brady, Madison Brown, Em Burris, Marc Cuenca, Caitlin Eddolls, Hunter Franklin, Nicole Funes, Jack Gnosca, Thanh Ha, Elizabeth Henson, Zisheng Huang, Brooke Kato, Kadaja Kirkland, Jason Lozada, Reece Nelson, Fiona Noever, Griffin Quinn, and James Year.

Melissa Catanese: The Lottery
Light Work Gallery

Light Work Gallery
316 Waverly Ave., Syracuse University, Syracuse

In "The Lottery," Melissa Catanese turns her attention to the tense and confusing state of contemporary politics and culture. Her images bring together large groups of people, barren caverns, natural forces, physical exertion, and eruptions both crude and colorful. The accumulated manic puzzle shifts the viewer from crowded street to darkened cavern. Along the way, we see a geyser of oil, streaks of lightning, veins of molten rock, and cooling craters. Punctuating these natural phenomena are people in states of glee, pain, confusion, and anguish.

Catanese borrows the title from literature. In Shirley Jackson's famous short story, a village casually embarks on a yearly ritual of selecting an individual and then stoning them to death. Catanese's The Lottery teases out similar themes regarding ritual, culture, and the diffused accountability of a mob.

Sekou Cooke: 15-81
Everson Museum of Art

Everson Museum of Art
401 Harrison St., Syracuse

"15-81" presents architect and urban designer Sekou Cooke's project "We Outchea: Hip-Hop Fabrications and Public Space" alongside documents relating to the 15th Ward in Syracuse. Commissioned by the Museum of Modern Art in 2021 as part of their exhibition "Reconstructions: Architecture and Blackness in America," "We Outchea" focuses on the legacy of placement and displacement of Black residents in Syracuse and considers various events in the city's history — the razing of the historic 15th Ward, the building of multiple public housing projects, and the construction of Interstate 81 — while simultaneously critiquing recent proposals to replace low-income communities with mixed-income housing. By contextualizing the We Outchea project with photographs and ephemera that tell the story of the once vibrant 15th Ward, Cooke points to a post I-81 Syracuse future of entrepreneurship and innovation.

Forever is Composed of Nows
Everson Museum of Art

Everson Museum of Art
401 Harrison St., Syracuse

Whether artists respond to history or look to the future, creativity exists in the moment. Drawn from the Everson's permanent collection, Forever is Composed of Nows examines a multitude of snapshots of the present moment, grouped by theme, image, or idea across different time periods and media. By examining how artists spanning three centuries have approached their present — their now — using similar topics and motifs, this exhibition is a visual exploration of how values, societal customs, and art subjects have evolved over time.

Curious Vessels: The Rosenfield Collection
Everson Museum of Art

Everson Museum of Art
401 Harrison St., Syracuse

Louise Rosenfield is among the most avid pottery collectors in the United States. Over the past 30 years, she has amassed a collection of more than 4,000 pieces of functional pottery from artists across the globe. Her ambition for her collection has always been clear — instead of donating work to a museum, she would rather donate it to a restaurant, where patrons could enjoy the work as originally intended.

"Curious Vessels" is a celebration of both Rosenfield's eclectic taste and her unrivaled generosity. Museum visitors will be able to touch many of the pieces in this exhibition while watching videos of Rosenfield and notable potters from the collection pointing out details of the work. Coming this spring, the Everson's new cafe´, Louise, will be stocked with functional vessels from the Rosenfield Collection that you will be able to eat and drink out of.

Kite: Fever Dream
Everson Museum of Art

Everson Museum of Art
401 Harrison St., Syracuse

"Fever Dream" is an interactive multimedia installation by Kite, an Oglala Lakota performance artist, visual artist, and composer, and Devin Ronneberg, a multidisciplinary artist of Kanaka Maoli/Okinawan descent working primarily in sculpture, sound, image-making, and computational media. The work brings together their mutual interests in the implications of emergent technologies and artificial intelligence, information control and collection, Indigenous ontologies, and bodily interfaces.

In response to the audience's proximity in the gallery, a large projection flips between channels algorithmically tuned in to scraped footage of conspiracy theories, paranormal and extraterrestrial sightings, and recent news broadcasts. The work plumbs the depths of the settler-colonial psyche and the ways in which settler conspiracies are often founded on a denial of Indigenous agency, such as the belief that "ancient aliens" are responsible for the building of Indigenous earthworks and monuments.

Sharif Bey: Facets
Everson Museum of Art

Everson Museum of Art
401 Harrison St., Syracuse

Over the past two decades, artist and educator Sharif Bey has created a body of work in ceramics and glass that explores the visual heritage of Africa and Oceania. Since accepting a teaching position at Syracuse University in 2009, he has become a vital part of Syracuse's social fabric. Coming on the heels of an exhibition at the Carnegie Museum of Art in Pittsburgh, where he was born and raised, the Everson presents a survey of Bey's work, starting with the functional pottery that has served as a touchstone throughout his career, and continuing through his most recent body of large-scale figurative sculptures in clay.

Suzanne Kite: Makhócheowápi Akézapta? (Fifteen Maps)
Urban Video Project

Everson Museum of Art Plaza
401 Harrison St., Syracuse

In this newly commissioned piece, Kite confronts histories of Indigenous displacement and "turns an Indigenous gaze" back on colonial knowledge systems, using AI as a means to explore alternative ways of nonhuman knowing based on the Lakota idea of The Good Way.

Makhócheowápi Akézapta? (Fifteen Maps) explores the Hudson River site known as Cruger Island, which John Cruger "purchased" in the 19th century and used as a backdrop for stolen Mayan ruins he transported as casts from Honduras. By the 1960s, Cruger Island had become a place for archeological excavations that displaced Indigenous artifacts and remains now held by the New York State Museum.

Screening begins at dusk.

The War in Ukraine
Strathmore Speakers Series
Featuring Russia Expert Brian Taylor

Price: Free
Online


A timely discussion of the ongoing war in the Ukraine, featuring Syracuse University Political Science Professor and Russia expert, Dr. Brian Taylor. Russia's invasion of the Ukraine in February sent shock waves through the international community and threatens to irrevocably upset the existing geopolitical order. What does the ongoing war mean for Europe? For NATO? And for the United States? Is this the start of a new Cold War? And if so, how will Putin respond? What impact will Russia's actions have on the norms of international behavior? Can we ever go back? And, perhaps most importantly, how will this conflict end? Is there a peaceful solution to be found? Or must force be met with force? You won't want to miss this incredibly important lecture. A brief Q&A will follow Dr. Taylor's talk.

Melissa Catanese: The Lottery
Light Work Gallery

Light Work Gallery
316 Waverly Ave., Syracuse University, Syracuse

In "The Lottery," Melissa Catanese turns her attention to the tense and confusing state of contemporary politics and culture. Her images bring together large groups of people, barren caverns, natural forces, physical exertion, and eruptions both crude and colorful. The accumulated manic puzzle shifts the viewer from crowded street to darkened cavern. Along the way, we see a geyser of oil, streaks of lightning, veins of molten rock, and cooling craters. Punctuating these natural phenomena are people in states of glee, pain, confusion, and anguish.

Catanese borrows the title from literature. In Shirley Jackson's famous short story, a village casually embarks on a yearly ritual of selecting an individual and then stoning them to death. Catanese's The Lottery teases out similar themes regarding ritual, culture, and the diffused accountability of a mob.

Sekou Cooke: 15-81
Everson Museum of Art

Everson Museum of Art
401 Harrison St., Syracuse

"15-81" presents architect and urban designer Sekou Cooke's project "We Outchea: Hip-Hop Fabrications and Public Space" alongside documents relating to the 15th Ward in Syracuse. Commissioned by the Museum of Modern Art in 2021 as part of their exhibition "Reconstructions: Architecture and Blackness in America," "We Outchea" focuses on the legacy of placement and displacement of Black residents in Syracuse and considers various events in the city's history — the razing of the historic 15th Ward, the building of multiple public housing projects, and the construction of Interstate 81 — while simultaneously critiquing recent proposals to replace low-income communities with mixed-income housing. By contextualizing the We Outchea project with photographs and ephemera that tell the story of the once vibrant 15th Ward, Cooke points to a post I-81 Syracuse future of entrepreneurship and innovation.

Everson Museum of Art

Everson Museum of Art
401 Harrison St., Syracuse

Whether artists respond to history or look to the future, creativity exists in the moment. Drawn from the Everson's permanent collection, Forever is Composed of Nows examines a multitude of snapshots of the present moment, grouped by theme, image, or idea across different time periods and media. By examining how artists spanning three centuries have approached their present — their now — using similar topics and motifs, this exhibition is a visual exploration of how values, societal customs, and art subjects have evolved over time.

Curious Vessels: The Rosenfield Collection
Everson Museum of Art

Everson Museum of Art
401 Harrison St., Syracuse

Louise Rosenfield is among the most avid pottery collectors in the United States. Over the past 30 years, she has amassed a collection of more than 4,000 pieces of functional pottery from artists across the globe. Her ambition for her collection has always been clear — instead of donating work to a museum, she would rather donate it to a restaurant, where patrons could enjoy the work as originally intended.

"Curious Vessels" is a celebration of both Rosenfield's eclectic taste and her unrivaled generosity. Museum visitors will be able to touch many of the pieces in this exhibition while watching videos of Rosenfield and notable potters from the collection pointing out details of the work. Coming this spring, the Everson's new cafe´, Louise, will be stocked with functional vessels from the Rosenfield Collection that you will be able to eat and drink out of.

Kite: Fever Dream
Everson Museum of Art

Everson Museum of Art
401 Harrison St., Syracuse

"Fever Dream" is an interactive multimedia installation by Kite, an Oglala Lakota performance artist, visual artist, and composer, and Devin Ronneberg, a multidisciplinary artist of Kanaka Maoli/Okinawan descent working primarily in sculpture, sound, image-making, and computational media. The work brings together their mutual interests in the implications of emergent technologies and artificial intelligence, information control and collection, Indigenous ontologies, and bodily interfaces.

In response to the audience's proximity in the gallery, a large projection flips between channels algorithmically tuned in to scraped footage of conspiracy theories, paranormal and extraterrestrial sightings, and recent news broadcasts. The work plumbs the depths of the settler-colonial psyche and the ways in which settler conspiracies are often founded on a denial of Indigenous agency, such as the belief that "ancient aliens" are responsible for the building of Indigenous earthworks and monuments.

Suzanne Kite: Makhócheowápi Akézapta? (Fifteen Maps)
Urban Video Project

Everson Museum of Art Plaza
401 Harrison St., Syracuse

In this newly commissioned piece, Kite confronts histories of Indigenous displacement and "turns an Indigenous gaze" back on colonial knowledge systems, using AI as a means to explore alternative ways of nonhuman knowing based on the Lakota idea of The Good Way.

Makhócheowápi Akézapta? (Fifteen Maps) explores the Hudson River site known as Cruger Island, which John Cruger "purchased" in the 19th century and used as a backdrop for stolen Mayan ruins he transported as casts from Honduras. By the 1960s, Cruger Island had become a place for archeological excavations that displaced Indigenous artifacts and remains now held by the New York State Museum.

Screening begins at dusk.

Oshima Brothers
Folkus Project

Price: $20 regular, $17 members
May Memorial Unitarian Society
3800 E. Genesee St., Syracuse

The Oshima Brothers' magnetic sibling sound and contagious joy result from a lifetime of making music together. Sean and Jamie blend songs from the heart with blood harmonies to produce a "roots-based pop sound that is infectious." (NPR)

On stage, Sean and Jamie offer lush vocals, live looping, foot percussion, electric and acoustic guitars, vintage keyboard and bass — often all at once. They want every show to feel like a deep breath, a dance party, and a sonic embrace.

Raised in a musical family in rural Maine, the brothers have honed a harmony-rich blend of contemporary folk and acoustic pop. They still live in Maine but are often on the road performing, producing music videos, and dancing.

Older brother Sean is the band's songwriter, publicist, business manager, stylist, and chef. He sings and plays rhythm guitar, harmonica, and cajón. At a show, you're sure to hear his warm vocals and soaring falsetto.

Consumed by music, Jamie is the band's producer, recording/audio engineer, filmmaker, and part-time songwriter. In addition to singing, he plays electric guitar, bass, drums, keyboard, mandolin, banjo, and fiddle. He has been recording songs and making videos in his home studio since he was 12.

The Oshima Brothers currently have two albums to their credit, producing their self-titled debut in 2016, followed by the five-track EP "Under The Same Stars" in 2019. The brothers write, record and produce all of their music and videos mostly in their home studio in Maine. Within a month of its release, "Under The Same Stars" garnered hundreds of thousands of streams from Spotify, Apple Music and Amazon.

Melissa Catanese: The Lottery
Light Work Gallery

Light Work Gallery
316 Waverly Ave., Syracuse University, Syracuse

In "The Lottery," Melissa Catanese turns her attention to the tense and confusing state of contemporary politics and culture. Her images bring together large groups of people, barren caverns, natural forces, physical exertion, and eruptions both crude and colorful. The accumulated manic puzzle shifts the viewer from crowded street to darkened cavern. Along the way, we see a geyser of oil, streaks of lightning, veins of molten rock, and cooling craters. Punctuating these natural phenomena are people in states of glee, pain, confusion, and anguish.

Catanese borrows the title from literature. In Shirley Jackson's famous short story, a village casually embarks on a yearly ritual of selecting an individual and then stoning them to death. Catanese's The Lottery teases out similar themes regarding ritual, culture, and the diffused accountability of a mob.

Melissa Catanese: The Lottery
Light Work Gallery

Light Work Gallery
316 Waverly Ave., Syracuse University, Syracuse

In "The Lottery," Melissa Catanese turns her attention to the tense and confusing state of contemporary politics and culture. Her images bring together large groups of people, barren caverns, natural forces, physical exertion, and eruptions both crude and colorful. The accumulated manic puzzle shifts the viewer from crowded street to darkened cavern. Along the way, we see a geyser of oil, streaks of lightning, veins of molten rock, and cooling craters. Punctuating these natural phenomena are people in states of glee, pain, confusion, and anguish.

Catanese borrows the title from literature. In Shirley Jackson's famous short story, a village casually embarks on a yearly ritual of selecting an individual and then stoning them to death. Catanese's The Lottery teases out similar themes regarding ritual, culture, and the diffused accountability of a mob.
