Artist Talk and Reception: Catherine Wagner
Thurs. Oct 5, 5:30pm
Granoff Center, Studio 2
154 Angell Street, Providence

In Pope Francis’ first encyclical letter, Lumen Fidei (The Light of Faith, 2013), he speaks of faith, truth, the common good and potential for humankind to join together in community. Inspired by the Pope’s affinity for light as a metaphor for change, LUMEN – an immersive, multidisciplinary installation by Loretta Gargan, Thomas Kelley, Eric Nathan and Catherine Wagner – aims to abstract and re-contextualize an act of spiritual contemplation. Please join us at 5:30 PM in Studio 2 for a talk by the artists, followed by a reception in the Cohen Gallery. Free and open to the public. Presented by the Brown Arts Initiative.

TAPS Presents Dreamlandia
Thurs. Sept 28 - Sun. Oct 8
Inspired by Pedro Calderón de la Barca´s 1935 Spanish Golden age classic, Life is a Dream, Dreamlandia, by Octavio Solis, is set in the borderlands between Mexico and Texas where it explores the terrain between illusion and reality. Immigration, labor relations, the narcotics industry, and the complexities of familia are scrutinized through Solis´ lyrical language, brutal truth and the multi-dimensionality of indigenous storytelling. Dreamlandia vibrates with the clash of cultural and sexual identities and illuminates the diversity of perspectives of those living on the edge of the U.S. and Mexico.

Open Call: Show Your Artwork at the Granoff Center
The Brown Arts Initiative (BAI) seeks student artwork for display throughout the Granoff Center this fall. Submissions in all media are welcome, although 2D and digital pieces are preferred.

Applications will be accepted on a rolling basis. If selected, applicants will be asked to meet with the BAI Curatorial fellow and submit a formal proposal.

Calling directors, artists, actors, designers, writers, and thinkers!
Audition for Reclamation Workshop
Auditions are happening on Wed. Oct 4 and Fri. Oct 6. This is an experimental piece in which each person involved will have intimate control over the themes, plot, and ending. We will tell a story that depends on trust, creativity, and the enthusiasm of an ensemble that is formed on the basis of listening. Our goal is to take our marginalization out of the margins and reclaim the stage as a space for radical action! Sign up for an audition spot here.
