COLLEGE OF COMMUNICATION & FINE ARTS

CALENDAR OF EVENTS


Dear Friends of CFA, It is a pleasure to welcome you to the 2017-2018 Events Season in the College of Communication and Fine Arts (CFA) at Loyola Marymount University. The empowering mission of LMU —which includes the encouragement of learning, the education of the whole person, the service of faith and the promotion of justice—is made manifest in the curriculum, practices, performances and events of our College. We are committed to activating the power of the expressive arts beyond its frequent characterization as simple entertainment. At CFA, our programming celebrates the communicative aspects of performance and artistic expression, “as ways of comprehending how human beings fundamentally make and remake culture, affect power and invent and reinvent our ways of being in the world as an everyday embodied practice” and in aesthetic forms staged in our theatres, recital hall, art galleries, dance and art studios (Madison and Hamera, 2006). As a communication and performance studies scholar myself, I understand the importance of what we do across the diverse range of our disciplines Art & Art History

Communication Studies

Dance

as a form of “invitational rhetoric” (Foss and Griffin, 1995). These art forms become an invitation to diverse audiences in differing modes (theatre, dance, music, art and lectures) to understand a meaningful discourse on particular themes. We invite audiences to explore critical ideas through artistic and aesthetic constructions—to see, listen, experience and feel these public expressions of thought and scholarship, with opportunities to then engage in meaningful dialogue. The work of our students and faculty aims to inform audiences of critical social and political issues, help them toward forming their own commitments, and spark abilities and actions towards transforming self and society. All, of course, while offering aesthetic and articulate pleasure. We invite you to join us through our season of diverse programming.

COMMUNICATION STUDIES FALL 2017 Fifth Annual Justice on Trial Film Festival: Exposing Injustice...Exploring Solutions SEP 15–17 The Justice on Trial Film Festival is a showcase of the most compelling content in the criminal justice reform movement today. The festival speaks to the challenges of people caught up in the judicial system. Too well do they know the pain and injustice— the jail house beatings, solitary confinement, stop-and-frisk humiliations, selective prosecutions with bad plea bargains, and the unreasonably long sentences that they suffer. They are painfully familiar with the school-to-prison pipeline that puts so many young people, particularly those of color, at risk. Their voices are often unheard beyond their own communities. The film festival creates an opportunity to project their voices to a world deafened by the negative images and stereotypes by the media. Co-hosted by the Bellarmine College of Liberal Arts, the College of Communication and Fine Arts and its Department of Communication Studies, and the School of Film and Television, this festival will expand on the work already conducted by the Department of Communication Studies on prison reform. The festival is presented by a New Way of Life, a women’s re-entry organization.

The Laband Art Gallery is pleased to present the first survey exhibition of Los Angeles-based artist Carolyn Castaño. Over the past fifteen years, Castaño has worked across a range of media including drawing, collage, painting, video, and installation. Her work is known for its vibrant colors and knockout patterns that marry fluorescent hues with tropical flourishes. Castaño employs these aesthetic strategies to explore notions of gender and identity as well as particular social conditions facing women in contemporary Latin America. In 2015, Castaño was an artist-in-residence in Medellín, Colombia, where she created a project with women who were seeking support and refuge from the intense internal conflicts of the region.
