Combining cinéma vérité with intimate interviews and archival photographs, the film paints a portrait of the dearly departed, their grieving families and a man who sends their loved ones “home.” Daniel Roumain’s acclaimed work as a composer and performer has spanned more than two decades and has been commissioned by venerable artists and institutions worldwide. Proving that he’s “about as omnivorous as a contemporary artist gets” (New York Times), Roumain is perhaps the only composer whose collaborations span the worlds of Philip Glass, Cassandra Wilson, Bill T.

Osorio is a professor at Temple University’s Tyler School of the Arts. His work has appeared in El Museo del Barrio, New York (a retrospective); Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts; Whitney Biennial at Whitney Museum of American Art, NYC; Yerba Buena Center for the Arts, San Francisco; Museum of American Art, Smithsonian Institution, Washington, D.C.; Sao Paulo Bienal, Sao Paulo, Brazil and storefronts, department stores and homes in many locations throughout the world.

Twelve of these will be explored this year for an incredibly varied and wildly surprising one-hour production that transcends all sorts of boundaries. (Twelve more will be tackled next year in Part 2, and the last twelve the following year in Part 3.) There may be no new plots, but here’s something entirely new: the first time many different Lancaster performing arts institutions, established and emerging, have come together to create a novel and innovative shared entertainment!

The project illustrates the entire 114 suras (chapters) of the Qur’an, 40 of which are represented in the exhibition. Birk is recreating the Qur’an in his own hand and illustrating it with everyday scenes as a way to reflect on Islam within the context of American culture and is inviting viewers to do the same. This exhibition was organized by the Andy Warhol Museum and is being toured by Curatorial Assistance Traveling Exhibitions (CATE). Sura 1 (v.1), 2008, Gouache, acrylic and ink on paper.
