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.

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.

Gabriel Garcia Roman: Queer Icons
ArtRage Gallery

Price: Free
ArtRage Gallery
505 Hawley Ave., Syracuse

Born in Zacatecas, Mexico, and raised in Chicago, this now-New York City based artist, Gabriel García Román began his ongoing "Queer Icons" series in 2011. This portrait series honors members of the Queer Trans community of Color, specifically activists, community organizers, poets and artists; members of the community that are doing the work and bringing attention to issues that affect the QTPoC community.

These images give visibility to a population that's generally under-represented in the art world. Finding inspiration in portraiture styles of Renaissance, Flemish, and Christian Orthodox paintings, the series aims to elevate these multi-dimensional, powerful and proud contemporary figures. From the queer Latina fighting for immigration rights to the non-binary disabled Trans Filipino, the artist perceives these figures as heroes in their own right.

Applying a chine-collé technique to the photogravure process, the artist transmutes his subjects into icons, dovetailing textured collage and photography into one-of-a-kind prints.

salt/city/blues
Syracuse Stage
Gilbert McCauley, director

Archbold Theater, Syracuse Stage
820 E. Genesee St., Syracuse

How does a fractured family heal when unresolved emotions of the past color the present? Can a city reshape itself if it means tearing open old, still-tender wounds? And where in a diverse but segregated city can communities find common ground, mutual dignity and a true sense of home? These questions collide into Yolonda Mourning, an independent consultant on a vast project to take down a span of highway that has long divided Salt City. When she leaves her husband and teenage son and moves to the heart of trendy downtown, a diverse cast of characters forces Yolonda to confront the Salt City's complicated history around race, class and urban renewal, and to reckon with her role as architect of the broken bridges in her own family. Moving, funny, poignant, and current, salt/city/blues is a fresh, contemporary new play by Kyle Bass set in a fictionalized Syracuse and to the music of the blues. A world premiere production.

The Most Beautiful Home ... Maybe
Syracuse Stage

Price: Free
Archbold Theater, Syracuse Stage
820 E. Genesee St., Syracuse

The Most Beautiful Home ... Maybe, by artists and activists Mark Valdez and ashley sparks, is an original work of devised theater whose goal is to use the imaginative resources of theater to explore solutions to chronic housing problems plaguing the country. Through workshops that bring together stakeholders involved in housing policy — politicians, developers, advocates, activists, the homeless — Valdez and sparks seek creative solutions to housing insecurity by challenging participants to consider the question, "What if everyone in this country had a home?" The input collected at the workshops forms the basis for the performance piece. Syracuse Stage has hosted four workshops in the lead up to the performance and local participants have included Deka Dancil, diversity, equity and inclusion specialist, St. Joseph's Health; Lanessa Chaplin, Esq., Project Counsel, New York Civil Liberties Union; and author and playwright Dr. Juhanna Rogers, among others.

To date, The Most Beautiful Home ... Maybe has performed in Minneapolis at the Mixed Blood Theatre, and recently at Los Angeles' REDCAT in the Walt Disney Concert Hall Complex. In speaking with the LA Times, sparks said that the skills theater artists have "are actually superpowers for solving community problems and creating spaces for people to have hard conversations."

salt/city/blues
Syracuse Stage
Gilbert McCauley, director

Archbold Theater, Syracuse Stage
820 E. Genesee St., Syracuse

How does a fractured family heal when unresolved emotions of the past color the present? Can a city reshape itself if it means tearing open old, still-tender wounds? And where in a diverse but segregated city can communities find common ground, mutual dignity and a true sense of home? These questions collide into Yolonda Mourning, an independent consultant on a vast project to take down a span of highway that has long divided Salt City. When she leaves her husband and teenage son and moves to the heart of trendy downtown, a diverse cast of characters forces Yolonda to confront the Salt City's complicated history around race, class and urban renewal, and to reckon with her role as architect of the broken bridges in her own family. Moving, funny, poignant, and current, salt/city/blues is a fresh, contemporary new play by Kyle Bass set in a fictionalized Syracuse and to the music of the blues. A world premiere production.

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.

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.

Everson Museum of Art

"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.

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.

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.

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.

Gabriel Garcia Roman: Queer Icons
ArtRage Gallery

Price: Free
ArtRage Gallery
505 Hawley Ave., Syracuse

Born in Zacatecas, Mexico, and raised in Chicago, this now-New York City based artist, Gabriel García Román began his ongoing "Queer Icons" series in 2011. This portrait series honors members of the Queer Trans community of Color, specifically activists, community organizers, poets and artists; members of the community that are doing the work and bringing attention to issues that affect the QTPoC community.

These images give visibility to a population that's generally under-represented in the art world. Finding inspiration in portraiture styles of Renaissance, Flemish, and Christian Orthodox paintings, the series aims to elevate these multi-dimensional, powerful and proud contemporary figures. From the queer Latina fighting for immigration rights to the non-binary disabled Trans Filipino, the artist perceives these figures as heroes in their own right.

Applying a chine-collé technique to the photogravure process, the artist transmutes his subjects into icons, dovetailing textured collage and photography into one-of-a-kind prints.

salt/city/blues
Syracuse Stage
Gilbert McCauley, director

Archbold Theater, Syracuse Stage
820 E. Genesee St., Syracuse

How does a fractured family heal when unresolved emotions of the past color the present? Can a city reshape itself if it means tearing open old, still-tender wounds? And where in a diverse but segregated city can communities find common ground, mutual dignity and a true sense of home? These questions collide into Yolonda Mourning, an independent consultant on a vast project to take down a span of highway that has long divided Salt City. When she leaves her husband and teenage son and moves to the heart of trendy downtown, a diverse cast of characters forces Yolonda to confront the Salt City's complicated history around race, class and urban renewal, and to reckon with her role as architect of the broken bridges in her own family. Moving, funny, poignant, and current, salt/city/blues is a fresh, contemporary new play by Kyle Bass set in a fictionalized Syracuse and to the music of the blues. A world premiere production.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Gabriel Garcia Roman: Queer Icons
ArtRage Gallery

Price: Free
ArtRage Gallery
505 Hawley Ave., Syracuse

Born in Zacatecas, Mexico, and raised in Chicago, this now-New York City based artist, Gabriel García Román began his ongoing "Queer Icons" series in 2011. This portrait series honors members of the Queer Trans community of Color, specifically activists, community organizers, poets and artists; members of the community that are doing the work and bringing attention to issues that affect the QTPoC community.

These images give visibility to a population that's generally under-represented in the art world. Finding inspiration in portraiture styles of Renaissance, Flemish, and Christian Orthodox paintings, the series aims to elevate these multi-dimensional, powerful and proud contemporary figures. From the queer Latina fighting for immigration rights to the non-binary disabled Trans Filipino, the artist perceives these figures as heroes in their own right.

Applying a chine-collé technique to the photogravure process, the artist transmutes his subjects into icons, dovetailing textured collage and photography into one-of-a-kind prints.

salt/city/blues
Syracuse Stage
Gilbert McCauley, director

Archbold Theater, Syracuse Stage
820 E. Genesee St., Syracuse

How does a fractured family heal when unresolved emotions of the past color the present? Can a city reshape itself if it means tearing open old, still-tender wounds? And where in a diverse but segregated city can communities find common ground, mutual dignity and a true sense of home? These questions collide into Yolonda Mourning, an independent consultant on a vast project to take down a span of highway that has long divided Salt City. When she leaves her husband and teenage son and moves to the heart of trendy downtown, a diverse cast of characters forces Yolonda to confront the Salt City's complicated history around race, class and urban renewal, and to reckon with her role as architect of the broken bridges in her own family. Moving, funny, poignant, and current, salt/city/blues is a fresh, contemporary new play by Kyle Bass set in a fictionalized Syracuse and to the music of the blues. A world premiere production.
