GOD OF CARNAGE Stillwell Theater August 19, 2016 | 8 p.m. $10 (at the door only) By Yasmina Reza. Directed by Rick Lombardo.

Two children have a playground altercation, and their two sets of parents come together to have a civilized and enlightened conversation about how to handle the situation. Over the course of 85 minutes, social and civil norms crumble, relationships shatter, and the question emerges – “just who really are the children here?” A benefit for study abroad scholarships.

Tuesday-Saturday 10 a.m. - 5 p.m. and Sunday 12 p.m. - 5 p.m.

TRANSITIONS: STATES OF BEING September 10 - December 4, 2016 Reception: September 10, 6-8 p.m.w Premised on a group of ivories produced in the early years of the 20th century in what is now the Democratic Republic of the Congo, the conditional nature of our understanding and perception of objects is explored in Transitions: States of Being. The show also includes contemporary artworks by Willie Cole, Louise Lawler, Lynn Hershman Leeson, Joseph Peragine, Amy Pleasant, Alexis Rockman, Danielle Roney, and Constance Thalken.

SLEIGHT OF HAND September 10 - December 4, 2016 Reception: September 10, 6-8 p.m. Sleight of Hand will explore the art, ritual, and spectacle of ivories and postcards collected during 19th-century Western colonial expeditions to what is now the Republic of the Congo. The staged scenes in the postcards depict life in the Congo’s communities. They will let us peer into a world that perpetuated ivories into a global commodity and fed into false ideals of an ‘exotic’ Africa for nonAfrican tourists. Through this exhibition, we encourage you to consider how colonialism collides with an artist’s reclamation of power through creative expression.
