On view Oct 25 - Nov 27
Rhode Island State House, Lower Level Gallery

Showcasing the work of 20 exceptional artists from across New England, this curated exhibition opens in the Lower Gallery of the historic State House. The Rhode Island Peoples’ House is an unusual yet perfectly suited civic-minded site for the large-scale contemporary art project. Seen together, intrepid artists will show off their aesthetic leadership as cultivators of nature, stimulating and re-seeding our perceptions of life” in the urban through their imaging in art—particularly botanical nature’s fascinating guises.

Other Events This Week

Anthony Bogues | Art History from the South
Mon. Oct 28, 12-2pm
McKinney Conference Room, Watson Institute

This year, the interdisciplinary forum, Art History from the South, engages experimental practices of art and architectural history that emerge from—and make connections across—the geographic and epistemic ‘south.’ In the format of a reading group that will meet twice a semester with one artist’s talk, the program includes scholars from Brown and beyond who will discuss their innovations in practicing art and architectural history. Together, we will consider arts across a range of locations and historical circumstances, test out methods like listening to images and tracing terminologies, and consider a variety of perspectives from eco-aesthetics and feminism to studies of diaspora, migration, and foodways.

Edouard Duval-Carrié and the Art of Embedded Histories | Artist Talk and Opening Reception
Tues. Oct 29, 5:30pm
Martinos Auditorium, Granoff Center

This exhibition is curated by Prof. Anthony Bogues and features new works by Duval-Carrié, an internationally acclaimed Haitian American sculptor and painter.  The exhibition will take place in two concurrent parts: Memory and Embedded Histories in the Cohen Gallery at the Granoff Center for the Creative Arts and The Kingdom of This World at the Center for the Study of Slavery and Justice. Following the artist talk, we invite you to a reception in both exhibition locations (CSSJ and Granoff Center).

Alia Al-Senussi '03 AM '04 | Workshop
Thurs. Oct 31, 4-5:45pm
McKinney Conference Room, Watson Institute

The Middle Eastern cultural sector has developed rapidly in the 21st century, although not in the way one might think in relation to the wider art world. The use of the term ‘cultural sectors’ is more relevant than using a regional one-size-fits-all classification as individual countries in the region have taken different approaches to the art world. Examining the differences and similarities, this workshop will identify models and consider their strengths and weaknesses in order to understand the ecosystems they operate in within the Middle East as well as within the wider art world—and how these act as mirrors for other socio-economic issues and structures.
