Continuing Events

Through Oct. 14: Muybridge & Curtis: The Great Photographic Projects of the Gilded Age

The Trout Gallery, Weiss Center for the Arts
Gallery hours: Monday-Saturday, 10 a.m.-4 p.m.

Muybridge & Curtis considers the two vast photographic projects of the Gilded Age: Eadweard Muybridge’s Animal Locomotion (1887) and Edward Curtis’ The North American Indian (1917-1930). Working with heavy tripods, large wooden cameras and glass-plate negatives, Muybridge and Curtis made tens of thousands of negatives for their respective projects. This exhibition of 46 prints, drawn from the museum’s permanent collection, considers the role turn-of-the-century photography played in scientific research and study. Prints from Animal Locomotion are a gift from Samuel Moyerman. Prints from The North American Indian are a gift from Angelo Brutico Jr. P’18.

Through Oct. 28: Kathe Kollwitz: Bauernkrieg/Peasant War

The Trout Gallery, Weiss Center for the Arts
Gallery hours: Monday-Saturday, 10 a.m.-4 p.m.

From 1903 to 1908, Käthe Kollwitz produced Bauernkrieg (Peasant War), a seven-print series that reveals the brutal treatment of peasants in 16th-century Germany, their rise to revolution and battle and their subsequent humiliation and death. Although based on historic events, the series anticipates tragedies that soon took shape across Europe. This exhibition is curated by Courtney Rogers ’17. Several works by Kollwitz were selected for The Trout Gallery's collection by student representatives of the museum’s advisory committee.

the grapes of wrath

 

Dickinson College Farm
Tickets $7, or $5 with student ID 

Prepare to experience this gripping story in a truly immersive way, as Frank Galati’s 1988 Tony Award-winning adaptation of this Pulitzer Prize-winning 1939 classic by John Steinbeck comes to the College Farm. Audience members will follow along with the actors, on foot and in wagons, as they depict the Joad family’s flight from the Dust Bowl to California. While penning his Depression-era novel, Steinbeck wrote, "I want to put a tag of shame on the greedy bastards who are responsible for [the Great Depression]." He also famously said, "I've done my damnedest to rip a reader's nerves to rags." Directed by Karen Lordi-Kirkham.

William Kentridge: Universal Archive and Journey to the Moon

William Kentridge, Universal Archive (detail).

William Kentridge, Universal Archive (detail).

The Trout Gallery, Weiss Center for the Arts
Gallery hours: Monday-Saturday, 10 a.m.-4 p.m.

In Universal Archive, internationally acclaimed South African artist William Kentridge (b. 1955) revisits images that appear frequently in his work—coffee pots, typewriters, cats, trees—through a sequence of prints that progresses gradually from identifiable forms to seemingly abstract marks. The images are printed on dictionary pages, which juxtapose creativity with authoritative text to examine the nature of rational thought and knowledge construction. This exhibition was organized by the Gund Gallery at Kenyon College and is made possible, in part, by contributions from Alva Greenberg, the Gund Gallery Board of Directors and the Ohio Arts Council.

Complementing Universal Archive, Kentridge’s live-action/animated short film Journey to the Moon will be projected continuously in the gallery. William Kentridge’s films are provided courtesy of Marian Goodman Gallery, New York/London.

See November listings for associated events on Nov. 1 and Nov. 9.
