Being Poland: A New History of Polish Literature and Culture Since 1918

04:00 pm to 06:00 pm
The CAHI House
http://www.indiana.edu/~cahi/htmlemail/2019/2/being-poland.shtml

Join us at CAHI as we celebrate the publication of Being Poland: A New History of Polish Literature and Culture Since 1918, coedited by Tamara Trojanowska (Univ. of Toronto), Przemysław Czapliński (Adam Mickiewicz Univ., Poznań, Poland) and IU’s Joanna Niżyńska.

Several of the book’s contributors will be on hand for a discussion: coeditors Tamara Trojanowska and Joanna Niżyńska, editorial assistant Agnieszka Polakowska (Univ. of Toronto), Bożena Shallcross (Univ. of Chicago), Karen Underhill (Univ. of Illinois at Chicago), George Gasyna (Univ. of Illinois at Urbana Champaign), and Benjamin Paloff (Univ. of Michigan, Ann Arbor). The discussion will be moderated by IU’s Bill Johnston (also one of the book’s contributors) and Russell Valentino. A reception will follow.

Being Poland offers a unique analysis of the cultural developments that took place in Poland after the First World War, a period marked by the country’s return to independence. Conceived to address the lack of critical scholarship on Poland’s cultural restoration, Being Poland illuminates the continuities, paradoxes, and contradictions of Poland’s modern and contemporary cultural practices, and challenges the narrative typically prescribed to Polish literature and culture. Spanning from Poland’s cultural grand narratives to the politics of post-war cinema, poetry, and mass media, Being Poland is a comprehensive reference work written by a transatlantic team of sixty scholars with the intention of exposing an international audience to the explosion of Polish culture that has come out of the twentieth and twenty-first centuries.

Presented by the Polish Studies Center, the Institute for European Studies, and the College Arts and Humanities Institute.

This event is free and open to the public. If you have a disability and need assistance, arrangements can be made to accommodate most needs. For more information, please email cahi@indiana.edu or call (812) 856-1169.

Guided Tours of Balancing Act: Christyl Boger and Of Bodies and Borders: Ana Teresa Fernández

02:00 pm to 04:00 pm
Grunwald Gallery of Art
https://soaad.indiana.edu/creative-activity/grunwald-gallery/exhibitions/upcoming/2018-08-24-out-of-easy-reach.html

Guides will take you on a tour of the Grunwald Gallery’s current exhibitions “Balancing Act: Christyl Boger” and “Of Bodies and Borders: Ana Teresa Fernández.” Learn about one or both exhibitions from Eskenazi Museum of Art guides who will offer insight into the artists’ processes and concepts. Tours will take place starting at 2pm every Saturday while the exhibitions are on view. Join us anytime between 2 and 4pm to start a tour.

“Balancing Act: Christyl Boger” contains works from the artist’s renowned career. Christyl Boger was interested in the balancing act of the human animal caught between impulse and control, individual versus group, and the “fragile, vulnerable veneer” of our shared cultural behavior. Her work exists at the confluence of high and low art, of traditional figurative sculpture and domestic decorative figurines. The figures are caught between irreverent display and self-conscious concealment, shifting between vulnerable and suggestive states of being. Though she referenced non-ceramic elements such as public statuary and contemporary inflatable beach toys, Boger stated that her material “stays true to the language of ceramic figurines…the material of clay itself is inseparable from the ideas of fragility and artifice.”

“Of Bodies and Borders: Ana Teresa Fernández” is an exhibit organized by Gallery Wendi Norris and previously shown in Miami, FL. Consisting of oil paintings, drawings, a sculpture installation and two videos, Of Bodies and Borders seeks to refocus our attention on the plight of immigrants crossing one of the deadliest borders in the world, the Central Mediterranean route from Tunisia, Libya and Egypt. In a performance filmed off of the island of Poros, Greece, the artist weighed down, wrestles with a bed sheet beneath the blue waters. The oil paintings document this performance in layers of paint and depict the artist struggling, submerged in the abyss.
