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.

Malcolm Dalglish and The Ooolites: Love Songs for a Lasting World to Benefit Middle Way House

07:00 pm to 09:00 pm
Buskirk-Chumley Theater
https://middlewayhouse.org/event/love-songs-for-a-lasting-world-malcolm-dalglish-and-the-ooolites/

Malcolm Dalglish and the Ooolites join up with the Hybridmotion Collective to bring you Picture Book, this year’s Love Songs for a Lasting World show. Picture Book is a family show that evokes the awe of the natural world with songs of birds, trees, mythical creatures and wild things. Expect settings of critter songs, Kentucky writer Wendell Berry’s nature poetry, and instructional hip-hop-erettas on the making of pie and over-the-top peanut butter and jelly sandwiches. Hybridmotion Collective dancer, Jun Kuribayashi, a veteran of Pilobolus will perform. Picture Book is a boldly optimistic feast of song and dance with soaring melodies, transcendent harmonies, and imaginative movement. Each year, Love Songs for a Lasting World brings a soulful, inventive, and sometimes zany swirl of song, dance, and pie; a celebration for all ages, with many new surprises as well as old favorites.

It’s become a Bloomington tradition and signature fundraiser for Middle Way House, an agency which empowers survivors of domestic violence, sexual assault, and human trafficking by providing emergency shelter, transitional housing, a 24/7 help and crisis line, youth programs, advocacy, and more throughout six counties in southern Indiana.

The show is expected to last two hours, including a brief intermission. And of course stick around for the apple pie, served fresh from Muddy Fork’s wood-fired oven!

Doors for this general admission event will open at 6:30pm. Discounted tickets are available for youth (18 & younger) and students of any age.
