The Indiana Heritage Fellowships Awards Celebration

Sat, Apr 27, 2019 1:00 PM - Sat, Apr 27, 2019 4:30 PM @ Traditional Arts Indiana

Join us for the presentation and celebration of the inaugural Indiana Heritage Fellowships!

Debra Bolaños, a ballet folklórico dancer and instructor in East Chicago, Indiana, and Harold Klosterkemper, a fiddle player from Decatur County, Indiana, will be honored for their lifetime achievement as artists whose work is rooted in community life in Indiana.

Recipients of the 2018 TAI apprenticeship program will also be recognized for their work.

On Saturday, April 27, from 1 to 4:30 p.m., demonstrations and performances by traditional artists from throughout Indiana will fill the Mathers Museum’s halls. Celebration highlights will include performances by Xel-Ha Escuela de Danza of East Chicago, Indiana, and bluegrass music performers Olivia Smiley and Eric Lowry. Demonstrations will include blacksmithing, Miami and Great Lakes beadwork embroidery, Zapotec weaving, hoopnet making, and African drum making.

The awards ceremony will be from 2:30 to 4:00p.m.

“Harold Klosterkemper has inspired generations of Indiana fiddlers. For decades he has been a regular at area fiddle contests and gatherings,” notes Jon Kay, Director of TAI. “You can often find him playing with and encouraging musicians a fraction of his age.” Kay added that TAI looks for artists whose art connects them to a community. “After years of excelling as a traditional dancer, first in Indiana and later in Mexico, Debra Bolaños became a ballet folklórico teacher in East Chicago, and has taught hundreds of students in Northern Indiana traditional, regional dances from throughout Mexico.”

This event will be free and open to the public!

Kader Attia- The Body’s Legacies (Part 1: The Objects)

Tue, May 07, 2019 7:00 PM - Tue, May 07, 2019 9:00 PM @ Tube Factory artspace

Attia’s recent film The Body’s Legacies (Part 1: The Objects) is an extensive account of testimonies by academics, scholars, collectors, and museum directors from Canada, the US, Ivory Coast, and many other locations, relating the histories behind bodies and artifacts from the world over.

This screening is part of the Bauhaus Imaginista: Collected Research exhibition.

Project partners:
Goethe-Institut, Bauhaus Kooperation, Haus der Kulturen der Welt.

Funded by:
Die Beauftragte der Bundesregierung für Kultur und Medien, Auswärtiges Amt, Kulturstiftung des Bundes.

On the occasion of 100 Jahre bauhaus (100 Years of Bauhaus).

Kader Attia (b. 1970, France), grew up in Paris and in Algeria. Preceding his studies at the École Supérieure des Arts Appliqués Duperré and the École Nationale Supérieure des Arts Décoratifs in Paris, and at Escola Massana, Centre d’Art i Disseny in Barcelona, he spent several years in Congo and in South America.

The experience with these different cultures, the histories of which over centuries have been characterised by rich trading traditions, colonialism and multi-ethnic societies, has fostered Kader Attia’s intercultural and interdisciplinary approach of research. For many years, he has been exploring the perspective that societies have on their history, especially as regards experiences of deprivation and suppression, violence and loss, and how this affects the evolving of nations and individuals — each of them being connected to collective memory.

His socio-cultural research has led Kader Attia to the notion of Repair, a concept he has been developing philosophically in his writings and symbolically in his oeuvre as a visual artist. With the principle of Repair being a constant in nature — thus also in humanity —, any system, social institution or cultural tradition can be considered as an infinite process of Repair, which is closely linked to loss and wounds, to recuperation and re-appropriation. Repair reaches far beyond the subject and connects the individual to gender, philosophy, science, and architecture, and also involves it in evolutionary processes in nature, culture, myth and history.

In 2016, Kader Attia founded La Colonie, a space in Paris to share ideas and to provide an agora for vivid discussion. Focussing on decolonialisation not only of peoples but also of knowledge, attitudes and practices, it aspires to de-compartmentalise knowledge by a trans-cultural, trans-disciplinary and trans-generational approach. Driven by the urgency of social and cultural reparations, it aims to reunite which has been shattered, or drift apart.

Kader Attia’s work has been shown in group shows and biennials such as the 12thShanghai Biennial; the 12th Gwangju Biennial; the 12th Manifesta, Palermo; the 57th Venice Biennial; dOCUMENTA(13) in Kassel; Met Breuer, New York; Kunsthalle Wien; MoMA, New York; Tate Modern, London; Centre Pompidou, Paris; or The Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, New York — just to name a few. Notable solo exhibitions include “The Museum of Emotion”, The Hayward Gallery, London; “Scars Remind Us that Our Past is Real”, Fundacio Joan Miro, Barcelona; “Roots also grow in concrete”, MacVal in Vitry-sur-Seine; „The Field of Emotion”, The Power Plant, Toronto; Museum of Contemporary Art, Sydney; “Repairing the Invisible”, SMAK, Ghent; Museum of Contemporary Art, Sydney; “Sacrifice and Harmony”, Museum für Moderne Kunst, Frankfurt; “The Injuries are Here”, Musée Cantonal des Beaux Arts de Lausanne; “Contre Nature”, Beirut Art Center; “Continuum of Repair: The Light of Jacob’s Ladder”, Whitechapel Gallery, London; and KW Institute for Contemporary Art, Berlin.

In 2016, Kader Attia was awarded with the Marcel Duchamp Prize, followed by the Prize of the Miró Foundation, Barcelona, and the Yanghyun Art Prize, Seoul, in 2017.

Benefit Dinner for Uplands PEAK

Sat, May 25, 2019 5:00 PM - Sat, May 25, 2019 7:00 PM @ Twin Lakes Recreation Center

Hey Bloomington-area veg-community! Would you like to help make a difference in the lives of rescued farm animals? This Memorial Day weekend, let US do all the cooking! We are a group of committed activists that have come together to host a dinner to benefit Indiana’s very own Uplands PEAK Farm Animal Sanctuary!

Uplands PEAK is driven by their mission to rescue and rehabilitate abused and neglected farmed animals, educate the public to the benefits of a healthy vegan lifestyle, and promote sustainability. This dinner will make it possible for PEAK to install two solar fans plus a panel to power the fans for the cows’ shelter. Their barn is not close to electricity hookups and fans in the heat of Summer are a must!

A purchased ticket gets you an all vegan buffet-style Indian dinner as well as a chance to win a gift basket in a raffle-drawing (additional raffle tickets can be purchased during the dinner)… so what are you waiting for?! Let’s come together for the animals!

Event Info:

What: All Vegan Benefit Dinner in support of Uplands PEAK Farm Animal Sanctuary

When: Saturday, May 25th from 5pm to 7pm

Where: City of Bloomington Twin Lakes Recreation Center at 1700 W Bloomfield Road, Bloomington, Indiana

Price per ticket: $15

Pull another year from the calendar to commune with that sacred holiday: Record Store Day. Traverse the grooves etched as valleys in vinyl, to welcome the arrival of sound as it emanates as vibrating air molecules to land in your consciousness.

Commune with the ancient wisdom becoming new again through Clint Breeze and The Groove, sure to paint portraits of soul before their new EP, “Arrival” descends.

ÉSSO Afrojam Funkbeat (Chicago) unites the atlas in one field of north, south, east, west.

The Broken Earth: Afrofuture Friday

Fri, Apr 12, 2019 6:00 PM - Fri, Apr 12, 2019 8:00 PM @ Kheprw Institute

AFROFUTURE FRIDAY: A DEEP DIVE INTO N.K. JEMISIN

It’s being said that for those of us into fantasy, we’re no longer in the age of JRR Tolkien, but rather we’re in the age of NK Jemisin. Join us as we begin a three-month deep dive into the work of the phenomenal N.K. Jemisin who has earned every last accolade heaped upon her.

BACKGROUND

The Fifth Season (2015) is the first volume in the Broken Earth series and is followed by The Obelisk Gate and The Stone Sky. The Fifth Season takes place on a planet with a single supercontinent called the Stillness. Every few centuries, its inhabitants endure what they call a “Fifth Season” of catastrophic climate change.

The society of the Stillness is broken up into many “comms”, “use-castes”, races and species. Such as orogenes, people with the ability to control energy, particularly that of the ground (directly) and temperature (indirectly).

In a prologue, an extraordinarily powerful orogene discusses the sad state of the world and laments the oppression of his race. He then uses his enormous power to fracture the entire continent along its length, threatening to cause the worst Fifth Season in recorded history. The story then follows three female orogenes across the Stillness from different time periods.

In August 2017 it was announced that The Fifth Season is being adapted for television by TNT

We’ll be discussing themes of the book and what it has to say about community, oppression, and most importantly, resistance. As always, we gather at 6p for our listening lab and meal. Discussion begins at 6:30pm.

Healer: TribeSouL/ Joshua Powell/ Veseria/ The Outside Voices

Sat, Apr 06, 2019 8:00 PM - Sat, Apr 06, 2019 11:00 PM @ Healer

TribeSouL (Indy) – soulful intersection hip hop, reggae, entrancing spoken word capitulated fiercely from the sacred heart of spirited unity with more girl power than a roller derby.

Joshua Powell & the Great Train Robbery (Indy) – in their first full band home show since PSYCHO/TROPIC’s release, experience rock n roll’s soft ego death making your insides tingle while channeling the ecstatic fervor of a million babies born at once.

Veseria (Indy) – fresh off the release of PPD1, become cosmically refreshed by the spectral embodiments of human sweetness, silhouetted by a host of matching suns that proclaim the glory of thrashed vocal cords and guitar solos from cthulu’s drooling mouth.

The Outside Voices (Kent, OH) – coal-fired blue collar smash the tubes out of yr amp type sweaty boys with rusty belts and more than thing or two to holler at the moon about.

ALL AGES.

time + cover TBA.
Just put this shit on your G-cal is what I’m sayin’.

Bauhaus Imaginista

Fri, Apr 05, 2019 6:00 PM - Fri, Apr 05, 2019 10:00 PM @ Tube Factory artspace

Jeremy Efroymson Gallery
April 1-June 22

“Bauhaus Imaginista” is a major international project that marks the German art school’s 100th anniversary. Operational from 1919 to 1933, Bauhaus is famous for the approach to design that combined high art and industry. This exhibition rethinks the school from a global perspective, and reads its entanglements against a century of geopolitical change.

The exhibition presents the 4 Gegenstande (Objects) in order to communicate the essential elements of bauhaus imaginista.
“The Bauhaus Manifesto” (1919) is shown through a specially commissioned essay film, exploring the hybrid and transnational influences that shaped its conception and the school’s origins. Marcel Breuer’s collage ein Bauhaus film (1927) was reproduced in the Bauhaus Journal No. 1, an edition of the journal will be reprinted and displayed in the gallery as a stacked multiple available for audiences to take away. Paul Klee’s “Carpet” drawing will be shown in reproduction on a study table detailing the artist’s North African journeys. Kurt Schwerdtfeger’s “Reflective Light Game” is shown through a film projection.

Princess-Out There

Fri, Apr 05, 2019 6:00 PM - Fri, Apr 05, 2019 10:00 PM @ Listen Hear

Join us for the Indiana premiere of “Out There,” a concept video album and live performance by the band Princess that explores the roles men play and those they ought to be playing during the current cultural reckoning with misogyny.

The video’s science fiction narrative explores the power of the Divine Feminine through collaborations with musician JD Samson, visual artist Jennifer Meridian, and the band TEEN.

Princess is a performance art duo, a collaboration between Alexis Gideon and Michael O’Neill that uses music as the backbone of a multidisciplinary practice that explores issues of queerness and the concept of masculinity. Princess was formed in 2004 in the Chicago DIY Performance space, Texas Ballroom. The duo released a self-titled LP and performed until 2006 when they went on to pursue other paths, reuniting for this project in 2017.

Alexis Gideon has performed and exhibited throughout the world, including at Moderna Museet Stokholm, New Museum of Contemporary Art, Institute of Contemporary Art Boston, Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago, Centro de Arte Contemporáneo Málaga, Yerba Buena Center for the Arts, Vdrome, Museum of Contemporary Art Cleveland, Wexner Center for the Arts, and Time Zones Festival Italia. He has toured internationally and opened for Dan Deacon and tUnE-yArDs.

Michael O’Neill has collaborated with JD Samson of Le Tigre and, with her, formed the acclaimed art/performance band MEN. MEN toured extensively around the world including festival appearances at Coachella (USA) and Sidney Mardi Gras (AUS), at museums such as SF MoMA (USA) and Museo Rufino Tamayo (MX), and support tours with the Gossip and Peaches.

The Indianapolis Quartet completes its third season in residence at the University of Indianapolis with music of Joseph Haydn, César Franck, and Edvard Grieg.

Guest artist Soyeon Kate Lee has been hailed by the New York Times as a pianist with “a huge, richly varied sound, a lively imagination, and a firm sense of style.” Winner of the 2010 Naumburg International Competition and the 2004 Concert Artist Guild Competition, she has appeared as soloist with the Cleveland Orchestra, London Symphony Orchestra, Louisiana Philharmonic Orchestra, and San Diego Symphony, among others. Recent solo recitals have taken her to Alice Tully Hall, the Kennedy Center, and the Ravinia Festival.

EARTH HOUR AT CITY HALL

Sat, Mar 30, 2019 8:15 PM - Sat, Mar 30, 2019 9:30 PM @ Carmel City Hall

Saturday, March 30, 2019
8:15-9:30 p.m.
Carmel City Hall
By the Gazebo

Click here to RSVP

Join us on Saturday, March 30th at City Hall to celebrate Earth Hour, a global event to shine a light on climate action.

We will turn out the lights in and around City Hall from 8:30 to 9:30 p.m. to join with cities around the world.  Come at 8:15 to witness lights out!

The City of Carmel and the Carmel Green Initiative would like to offer the area in front of City Hall to any Girl Scout troop that would like to come and participate in Earth Hour. We will turn off all of the lights at City Hall for 1 hour.

Can’t make it? Join families around the world to turn off the lights on pollution at home.  At school and work, please make sure all non-essential lighting and electronics are turned off that weekend.

Saving electricity is one of the easiest ways for Hoosiers to save money and be good stewards of the earth because almost all of our electricity comes from coal, the greatest source of water and air pollution, and the greatest contributor to global warming pollution.
