Increment Opening Reception – 30 листопада, о 6 год. вечора.

Featuring Barbara Cooper, Shona Macdonald, Yoonshin Park

Curated by Adrienne Kochman.

Increment, at its simplest level, suggests moving forward in small, compartmentalized steps. Progress may appear slow, deliberate, conscientious, or gradual, but at its foundation lays the notion of measured change. This exhibit focuses on the work of three artists intent on drawing our attention to areas often overlooked or minimized in a world where reaching the end product directly prevails. Cooper explores the tension between nature and industry as a site of reconciliation; Macdonald ponders dislocation and "our transient and fragile hold on earth" through landscapes; and Park embraces the condition of not belonging as an opportunity for growth. All share an interest in the ensuing transformation.

Contemporary Ukrainian Graphics Opening Reception

Contemporary Ukrainian Graphics Opening Reception – відкриття 12 жовтня, о 6 год. вечора.

During the Soviet period, graphics secondary status to painting as a platform for disseminating official ideology granted it a measure of flexibility. Paid less attention by state censors, artists were able to pursue personal creative endeavors, explore formal artistic issues, and introduce new and challenging techniques - ultimately expanding graphics as a medium in its own right. The collapse of the Soviet Union and state-controlled art opened greater opportunities for artists, leading graphics to become one the most popular and highly respected art forms in Ukraine. 

The exhibit highlights the progress, innovation and character shaping graphic art over the last 40 years. Featuring the work of 32 of the country's most acclaimed artists, the exhibition focuses primarily on the three major graphic centers of Kyiv, Lviv and Kharkiv, as well as paying heed to smaller communities of graphic production. Urbanization, the condition of the urban individual, modernity, and the decorative are some of the pictured themes, just as other works demonstate artist's engagement with newfound technical demands.

A tragic story of romance and political intrigue from 16th century Europe. The rock musical The Legend of Zygimantas Augustas and Barbora Radvilaite appears in Chicago for one night only, October 6. The young Grand Duke of Lithuania, Zygimantas Augustas (Mantas Jankavicius), is destined to inherit the Polish throne from his father, the king (Rokas Spalinskas).

The young king falls in love with the beautiful Barbora Radvilaite (Karina Krysko-Skambine) and they wed in secret, eventually causing havoc throughout the land. With the help of Barbora’s brother and cousin (Jeronimas Milius, Tadas Juodsnukis), and over the objections of mother Queen Bona Sforza (Gitana Vilkeliene) and the nation’s nobility, Barbora is to be crowned Queen.

This Lithuanian production (with English supertitles) is directed by Anzelika Cholina, with original costume design by Juozas Statkevicius. Composer Kipras Masanauskas fuses contemporary rock style with Rennaisance music in a raw and dramatic portrayal of tragic royal love.

NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC LIVE — WHEN WOMEN RULED THE WORLD

NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC LIVE — WHEN WOMEN RULED THE WORLD – 26 вересня, о 7 год. вечора.

Dr. Kara Cooney, professor of Egyptian art and architecture at UCLA, joins us for a look at a time in ancient history when women ruled the world. Often neglected in history books, these women were considered exceptions to the rule, political pawns in a patriarchal society, but their power and influence is undeniable. Cleopatra used her sensuality — and her money — to build alliances with warlords of the Roman Empire. Neferusobek was the first woman to definitively take the title of King. Nefertiti is known more for her beauty than for bringing a fractured Egypt together. What can we learn from how these women ruled? Dr. Cooney shares some illuminating answers.
