Focalpoint: Personal Objects: Art from Eastern and Southern Africa
January 14–May 11, 2014 Raymond and Laura Wielgus Gallery of the Arts of Africa, the South Pacific, and the Americas, Focalpoint, third floor From jewelry and headdresses to household objects such as containers, headrests, and spoons, the art of eastern and southern Africa for the most part is intimately connected with the individual. Though these regions of Africa do not have the large numbers of masks and figural sculpture for which western and central Africa are known, the personal objects found there frequently reflect the deep cultural significances and attention to form and detail seen elsewhere on the continent. This installation has been organized to coincide with the A352/A552, Art of Eastern and Southern Africa, a course being taught during the spring 2014 semester in the Department of the History of Art.

New in the Galleries: ‘Max Beckmann’s Woodcuts’
Gallery of the Art of the Western World, Doris Steinmetz Kellett Endowed Gallery of Twentieth-Century Art, first floor
February 4–June 22, 2014
Although the German Expressionist artist Max Beckmann was a prolific graphic artist (producing 374 prints during his lifetime), he created fewer than 20 woodcuts. Most were produced during the 1920s, when Germany was experiencing a revival of interest in the medium. Seven prints from this period will be featured in this installation.

IU Cinema Presents: ‘Beyond the Hills’

03:00 pm
IU Cinema (1213 E. 7th Street)
http://www.cinema.indiana.edu/calendar/

A fervent reunion between long-separated orphans begins this harrowing fable based on a 2005 incident in a Moldavian convent. Alina’s pious retreat into the remote Orthodox sect led by a glowering patriarch is disrupted by her devoted friend Voichita’s ardent entreaties, which begin to resemble demonic possession. Joining Mungiu’s Palme d’Or winner 4 Months, 3 Weeks, 2 Days, this ongoing exploration of women bonding as defense against totalitarian regimes stands at the forefront of the Romanian New Wave’s realist masterpieces. (2K DCP presentation) Contains brief nudity.
Queer Disorientations

This Film Series brings together an eclectic range of films that deal with questions of gender and sexuality in inventive, challenging and often unlikely ways. Moving beyond the purview of lesbian and/ or gay cinema, the series creates a platform for a wide variety of film and video work of queer import, from avant-garde and arthouse to classic Hollywood and recent transnational cinema. Highlighting current work at the intersection of cinema studies and queer politics, theory and history, each screening features a tailored introduction by a scholar or filmmaker. Sponsored by the Cultural Studies Program, Film and Media Studies Program, Department of Communication and Culture, Department of Gender Studies, Russian and East European Institute, Department of American Studies and IU Cinema. Special thanks to Ryan Powell.

06:30 pm
IU Cinema (1213 E. 7th Street)
http://www.cinema.indiana.edu/calendar/

National Theatre Live broadcasts the Donmar Warehouse production of Coriolanus, Shakespeare’s searing tragedy of political manipulation and revenge, with Tom Hiddleston (The Avengers, War Horse) in the title role and Mark Gatiss as Menenius. When an old adversary threatens Rome, the city calls once more on her hero and defender: Coriolanus. But he has enemies at home too. Famine threatens the city, the citizens’ hunger swells to an appetite for change, and on returning from the field Coriolanus must confront the march of realpolitik and the voice of an angry people. (2K DCP presentation)
