The Grunwald Gallery at Indiana University is pleased to present Every Breath We Drew, photographs by Jess Dugan. This series has been widely published and noted as one of the most important series of photographs depicting intimacy and identity. Rather than attempting to describe a specific identity or group, the gender identity and sexual orientation of the individuals varies greatly- Every Breath We Drew asks larger questions about how identity is formed, desire is expressed, and intimate connection is sought. The exhibit will open on August 6 and continue through October 4, 2019. The artist will be present on September 13 to participate in several public programs including a McKinney Visiting Artist Lecture at 5pm followed by a reception.

The exhibition will provide an opportunity to address the political and cultural nuances of gender, inclusion, and representation. Within an academic context, Ms. Dugan’s work has implications across disciplines and research institutes including Fine Arts, Gender Studies, The Kinsey Institute, and American Studies, to name a few. In addition to the expansive, interdisciplinary dialogue sparked by Ms. Dugan’s work, she is a generous workshop leader and adept at working with students to provide feedback on creative research and career development.

Rough and Unequal

12:00 pm to 04:00 pm on Oct 4

The Grunwald Gallery and Black Film Center/Archive are pleased to present Rough and Unequal, a film by Kevin Jerome Everson. The film will be exhibited in the Grunwald Gallery as the centerpiece for a symposium featuring the filmmaker in collaboration with IU Faculty, students and Indianapolis Museum of Art at Newfields Associate Curator of American Art Dr. Kelli Morgan.

This installation expands the Black Film Center/Archive’s exploration of the reverberations between the genre of nonconformist filmmaking known as “the avant-garde” and the parallel insurgent cinemas of the African Diaspora. The screening of Rough and Unequal in an art gallery setting is consistent with previous screenings, providing a contemplative space for the 11-minute silent film. The presentation of the film in this setting, where the public will be able to revisit the film over a period of time, will provide a viewing experience very different than one that can be provided in the cinema. Placing Everson’s film in an art gallery context draws attention to the visual aspects of the film and creates the connection to visual art.
