Artists Ligia Bouton, Joan Linder at Faulconer Gallery

 In March the Faulconer Gallery will feature talks by artists Ligia Bouton and Joan Linder ’92.

Bouton will speak on Thursday, March 2, and Linder on Thursday, March 9. Both events, which are free and open to the public, will begin at 4 p.m. in the Faulconer Gallery in the Bucksbaum Center for the Arts, 1108 Park St., Grinnell.

Born in Sao Paulo, Brazil, Bouton spent her childhood in London and studied at both Vassar College and the Mason Gross School of the Arts at Rutgers University. Her creative work combines sculpture and drawing with performance, digital video and photography. Each project wrestles with the intersection of functionality and narrative, drawing on sources from art history, classical and contemporary literature and science.

Her projects have been installed in New York at Bill Maynes Gallery and Denise Bibro Fine Art, in Colorado at the Boulder Museum of Contemporary Art and in New Jersey at City Without Walls. Her video work has been included in national and international festivals, including The Female Avant Garde Festival in Prague.

Grinnell College owns a large drawing and a glass wall sculpture by Bouton. Both are on view in the Print and Drawing Study Room in Burling Library, 1111 Sixth Ave., Grinnell. The room is open from 1 to 5 p.m. Sunday through Friday and by appointment.

Linder uses drawing to uncover how history can be buried: as artifacts in the ground, and as documents in the archive. Her work is currently on view in the exhibition "Operation Sunshine" at the Faulconer Gallery (through March 19). Linder will be a visiting artist at Grinnell from March 6 through 10, sponsored by Artists@Grinnell.

In her public talk on March 9, Linder will discuss how her art explores brownfields and toxic waste sites near Niagara Falls, and delves into the related documents. A reception will follow in the rotunda of the Bucksbaum Center. Her talk is part of the Symposium on Technology and Human Rights, sponsored by the Rosenfield Program in Public Affairs, International Relations and Human Rights.

In addition, Linder invites individuals to observe her creative process and interact with her during Drawing in the Gallery events from 12:30 to 4:30 p.m. Tuesday, March 7, and from 10 a.m. to noon and 1 to 3 p.m. on Wednesday, March 8. While in the gallery, she will be hand-copying documents for her Toxic Archive.

Linder is a native of suburban New York, and now lives and works in Brooklyn and Buffalo, New York. She is department chair and an associate professor of drawing at the University of Buffalo. Her work focuses on drawings that transform mundane subjects into rich images, delving into themes such as the politics of war and sexual identity and power.

Her work has been displayed throughout the United States and in countries around the world, including Brazil, Denmark, Germany, Israel, Japan and South Korea. She is currently represented by Mixed Green Gallery in New York City.

The Faulconer Gallery is open from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily, with the exception of major holidays. The gallery presents exhibitions of regional, national and international significance. In addition, the gallery serves the educational mission of the College while also giving students and the general public the chance to interact with a diverse range of artistic exhibitions, from easel paintings and installation art to drawings and video.

The opera will be shown in the Harris Center Cinema, 1114 10th Ave., Grinnell.  Jennifer Brown, associate professor of music, will present the opera talk at 11:30 a.m.

La Traviata follows tragic heroine and courtesan Violetta Valery as she falls in love with Alfredo Germont, despite knowing that she will die soon. When Germont's father forces Valéry to leave him, Germont is left confused and seeks vengeance. The music, profound and heartfelt, has captured audiences around the world.

Rusalka follows water nymph Rusalka as she falls in love with a human – the prince – who came to swim in her lake. Rusalka becomes mortal to be with her beloved, but encounters supernatural spells and curses in the way of being with the prince. This tragic love story perfectly exemplifies romanticism with folklore, evocations of the natural and supernatural worlds, and fairytale.

Mark Elder conducts, and Kristine Opolais and Brandon Jovanovich star as Rusalka and the prince, respectively.

Pulitzer Prize-winning Novelist Junot Diaz Visits Campus

Pulitzer Prize-winning novelist Junot Diaz will read from his work at 7 p.m. Monday, Feb. 13, 2016, in Joe Rosenfield '25 Center, Room 101. Diaz also will lead a roundtable discussion about writing fiction at 4 p.m. in Rosenfield Center Room 209. Both events are free and open to the public.

Diaz is fiction editor of the Boston Review and the Rudge and Nancy Allen Professor of Writing at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.

Diaz's work, which often focuses on immigration and feelings of displacement, is particularly salient amidst current debates around immigration. Former President Obama said in an interview with The New York Times that his work speaks "to a very particular contemporary immigration experience," with stories of people who are "steeped with this sense of being an outsider, longing to get in, not sure what you're giving up." 

Born in the Dominican Republic and raised in New Jersey, Diaz writes prolific stories of the Caribbean diaspora, American assimilation, and negotiation of identity. His novel, The Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao, tells the story of three generations of a family living in the Dominican Republic and the United States. It won the 2008 Pulitzer Prize in Fiction and the National Book Critics Circle Award.

Diaz also is the author of critically acclaimed Drown and most recently, the short story collection This Is How You Lose Her, a New York Times bestseller and National Book Award finalist. In 2012, he was awarded the prestigious MacArthur “Genius" Fellowship. He has received the Dayton Literary Peace Prize and a Guggenheim Fellowship, among others.

Sponsoring this event are the Student Organization of Latinxs; the Rosenfield Program in Public Affairs, International Relations, and Human Rights; the Office of Diversity and Inclusion; Intercultural Student Affairs; Writers@Grinnell; Student Activities; and the Student Government Association.

Grinnell College welcomes the participation of people with disabilities. Rooms 101 and 209 are equipped with induction hearing loop systems, which enables individuals with hearing aids set to T-Coil to hear the program. Accommodation requests may be made to Conference Operations.

BLACK GIRL: Linguistic Play

Camille A. Brown and Dancers will perform Brown's work, BLACK GIRL: Linguistic Play, on Saturday, Jan. 28, 2016. The performance, which is free and open to the public, will begin at 7:30 p.m. in Roberts Theatre, Bucksbaum Center for the Arts.

Tickets, which are free, are required for admission. They will be available starting at noon Wednesday, Jan. 25, in the box office in the Bucksbaum Center for the Arts. For more information, call 641-269-3235.

Related events include:

  • Artists as Activists: A lecture by Camille A. Brown.
    4:15 – 5:15 p.m. Friday, Jan. 27, Bucksbaum Center for the Arts, Room 152
  • Social Dance Workshop: a journey through Juba and other social dances
    11 a.m. -12:30 p.m. Saturday Jan. 28, Bucksbaum Center for the Arts, Dance Studio

Please email Celeste Miller to participate in these related events.

Brown is an award-winning choreographer, dancer, director and arts activist. Telling stories that connect history with contemporary culture, she leads her dancers in soaring through history like a whirlwind.

BLACK GIRL: Linguistic Play reveals the complexity of negotiating a self-defined identity as a black woman in urban American culture. In a society where black women are often only portrayed in terms of their strength, resiliency, or trauma, this work explores these narratives by representing a nuanced spectrum of black womanhood in a racially and politically charged world.

With original music compositions and live music, Brown uses the rhythmic play of African-American dance vernacular to evoke childhood memories of self-discovery. The performance is both a play and protest as performers come into their identities, from childhood innocence to girlhood awareness to maturity, all while being shaped by their environments, the bonds of sisterhood, and society at large. The work has been performed nationwide, from New York City to Portland and beyond.

Brown is the 2015 United States Artists Jay Franke and David Herro Fellow, a TED Fellow, and a Doris Duke Artist Recipient. She received her B.F.A. from the University of North Carolina School of the Arts. Her theatre credits include A Streetcar Named Desire on Broadway; Jonathan Larson's tick, tick…BOOM! with Lin-Manuel Miranda, creator of Hamilton; and The Public Theater's Fortress of Solitude.

The Pines at Grinnell Arts Center

The Pines, a folk band native to Iowa, will perform in concert at the Grinnell Arts Center on Friday, Jan. 27. Grinnell's own Pink Neighbor will perform a short set at the opening reception, which begins at 6:30 p.m. at the Arts Center, 926 Broad St., Grinnell. The concert will start at 7:30 p.m.

 Center for Prairie Studies, directed by Jon Andelson ’70, Rosenfield Professor of Social Science-Anthropology, is co-sponsoring this special one-night performance.

Erik Jarvis ’12, events manager for the Grinnell Area Arts Council, says, "Professor Jon Andelson reached out to us, saying he'd like to set-up a performance for a band or artist that sings about the prairie. Of the few artists he had in mind, I was largely drawn to The Pines because of their fresh take on folk music and their appeal to a younger demographic. You still get acoustic guitars and tight harmonies, but their sound is spacier than the average 'folk' artist."

Benson Ramsey, Alex Ramsey (sons of Iowa music veteran Bo Ramsey), and David Huckfelt make up The Pines. The men now live and work in Minneapolis, but came back to Iowa last year to record their latest feature-length album, Above the Prairie. The album, which blends indie and folk music, was praised by publications such as Rolling Stone and the Minneapolis Star Tribune.

"We went back to Iowa and just did it in three days, and that was pretty much it. It's almost like a photograph," says Benson Ramsey.

Jarvis says of the album, "Each of the artists Jon and I looked at had lyrics that reflected the prairie in some way, but The Pines were the only group whose arrangements and soundscapes gave me that feel of the prairie. When I listen to their music, it feels like the slow bends of Highway 6. It's at once familiar and yet constantly oscillating."

Grinnell-based band Pink Neighbor will perform before The Pines. Comprised of Jarvis and Katie In ’13, who also works at the Arts Center, Pink Neighbor has performed at a variety of venues across Grinnell.

"We are excited to open for such a great group," Jarvis says. "Bringing a band of this caliber fits into our mission of the Arts Center, but it's also really relevant to what Katie and I are trying to do with our music in Grinnell. We hope that with all the downtown improvements, particularly the new stage at Central Park, we're able to keep bringing great music here."

Tickets for the general public are $10. The concert is free for Grinnell College students, faculty, and staff, as well as individuals under 18. Tickets are available at the Macy House, 1205 Park St., Grinnell; by calling  emailing Jan Graham; at the Grinnell Arts Center; or at the door.

In addition to Grinnell College's Center for Prairie Studies, other co-sponsors of the performance are the College's Office of Alumni Relations; Relish, a Grinnell restaurant; and RSVP, a stationery shop in Iowa City.

Crossing the Line: Selections from the Grinnell College Art Collection

The Faulconer Gallery will open a new exhibition at the start of second semester. "Crossing the Line" features more than 50 works from the college's art collection — prints, paintings, drawings, maps, books, photographs and objets d'art, which connect to current issues of global discourse and reveal lines crossed and repercussions dealt.

"This exhibition is intended to bring up current global issues that are identified by works in the collection," Daniel Strong, associate director of Faulconer Gallery and curator of exhibitions, explains. "'Crossing the Line' is widely varied in media and visually very stimulating, illustrating issues such as migration and immigration, incarceration and revolution, and how these issues reshape identities.

"These are issues in the news, and the collection relates to them. The art collection is here to be instructive and to make people think, not just look at or soothe, but to edify and question."

Grinnell College faculty, students and staff will write some of the texts that will accompany works in the exhibition, lending their expertise and personal experience to an understanding of the art. They will be on hand for an open conversation event on Thursday, Feb. 23, to interact with the the public offering information and points of view about each work.

Director of Faulconer Gallery Lesley Wright says many of the works in "Crossing the Line" are recent acquisitions, some as recent as December, purchased from the college's endowed funds.

"The Grinnell College Art Collection houses historically and culturally rich works of social and political commentary from many periods and media," she adds. "The collection in general deals with social issues, and we can build different exhibitions in different contexts. 'Crossing the Line,' for example, is offered in conjunction with 'Rethinking Global Cultures,' a yearlong project sponsored by the college's Center for the Humanities."

Faulconer Gallery will host a series of free, public events related to the exhibition:

  • 20 Minutes@11, Tuesday, Feb. 7, 11 a.m., with Daniel Strong, associate director and curator of exhibitions. He will speak about Damon Davis' "All Hands on Deck," a work included in "Crossing the Line" that was created during the Ferguson, Mo., protests following the death of Michael Brown.

Joan Linder: Operation Sunshine

The Faulconer Gallery will open a new exhibition on January 27, 2017. In her exhibition, "Operation Sunshine," Joan Linder '92 investigates the environmental history of brownfields and toxic waste sites near Niagara Falls by making meticulous drawings of the empty fields, chain link fences and the files stored away in archives. She uses drawing to consider how history can get buried: as artifacts and chemicals in the ground, and as documents in the archive. The act of drawing becomes a way to slow down and pay attention anew to the damage that has become hidden in plain sight.

"Operation Sunshine" includes more than 80 drawings of actual sites and documents, which she recreates by hand to tell a story such as 1950s research about the impact of radioactive fallout. On March 7 and 8, visitors will have the opportunity to observe Linder's work-in-progress, "Toxic Archive," as she draws in the gallery (see below for details). "Operation Sunshine" is offered in conjunction with the college's Rosenfield Symposium on Technology and Human Rights, March 7-9.

Faulconer Gallery will host a series of free, public events related to the exhibition:

  • Artists@Grinnell, Thursday, Feb. 9, 4 p.m., with Haitian-born artist and curator Edouard Duval-Carrié, who incorporates religious traditions and the history of Haiti, the Caribbean and Florida, into his art with a wide range of images.
