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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
