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

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 exhibition 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.

Corey Smith Live at Bluebird Nightclub

07:00 pm to 10:00 pm
Bluebird Nightclub

Corey Smith, the fan-made man, has sold over 1 million concert tickets, 1.5 million digital singles and over 220,000 albums. Smith has amassed an unfailingly devout fan base, not only in his native Southeast region, but all around the nation, simply by telling it the way it is. He has released 10 albums—including 2011’s Top 20 release The Broken Record. Corey has written every word on every album himself and he produced 9 out of 10 of the records. In Summer 2015, Corey teamed up with producer Keith Stegall (Alan Jackson, Zac Brown Band) for his album, “While the Gettin’ Is Good,” which was released on Sugar Hill Records. Smith’s concerts, which were documented on his last live record, Live in Chattanooga, regularly sell out, with audiences singing along to such fan favorites as the coming-of-age anthem “Twenty-One,” the nostalgic time warp “If I Could Do It Again” and the group hug “I Love Everyone.” Corey consistently tours, hitting around 120 dates per year and has begun releasing singles from his upcoming project, the Great Wide Underground.
