  • Exhibition: Observations of a Box (View)
    When: All Day - Event ends on Friday, March 3rd, 2017
    Where: McCabe Library 0 0 - McCabe Lobby

    McCabe Library features work made by students in Professor Logan Grider's Foundation Drawing course from the fall of 2016. The students were given the problem of constructing a three-dimensional composition inside a box built from recycled cardboard. The compositions were inspired by specific paintings by Giotto, Poussin, Titian, and Caravaggio. The students had to think carefully about how light would play inside the boxes and then create windows for either natural light or artificial light to inform their compositions. To complete the project, students made drawings based on close observational study of the compositions inside their boxes.

    Where: Lang Performing Arts Center 0 0 - LPAC List Gallery - List Gallery

    The List Gallery Presents: Alexis Petroff: Floating Drawings

    January 19–March 12, 2017

    The List Gallery, Swarthmore College is pleased to host Floating Drawings, an exhibition of mixed-media works by Alexis Petroff, the 2017 Marjorie Heilman Visiting Artist. Petroff will lecture about his work on Thursday, January 19 at 4:30 p.m. in the Lang Performing Arts Center Cinema, Swarthmore College. The List Gallery reception will follow 5:30-7:00 p.m. All are welcome and admission is free. A color catalog will accompany the exhibition, which will remain on view through March 12.

    Inspired by diverse sources, including junk mail, newsprint, personal photographs, and the art of Venezuelan geometric abstractionist, Gego (Gertrud Louise Goldschmidt), Petroff translates linear elements observed in art and nature into volumetric paper forms painted with gouache and supported by wire armatures. His three- dimensional forms float in front of and behind cloth grounds that are appliquéd with opaque or semi-transparent silk shapes and through which other layers and elements can be seen. Building upon and moving beyond his experience as a printmaker and painter, he creates a layered space—an imaginative terrain that parallels the gallery walls but challenges predictable boundaries.

    Since 2010, Petroff has also taken inspiration from found satellite images of long docks and boat houses that jut out into tributaries of the Mississippi and the Saint Johns Rivers. Drawing on an iPad, he interprets the long docks as thin, linear sculptural elements and he renders the boat houses as silk panels that float before the gallery wall as if on a river. His most recent work takes inspiration from the ways in which utility lines attach to the facades of buildings and explores the evocative relationships between transparent and opaque cloth panels. Exploring the poetry of light, matter, and space, Petroff conjures diverse associations with art history and the built environment.

    Alexis Petroff was born in 1956 in Bordeaux, France. His family relocated to Jamaica, Queens, where he attended public school before studying with Jack McCaslin at James Madison University and ultimately receiving a BFA from Indiana University in 1984 and an MFA from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago in 1987. He has mounted numerous one person exhibitions in the Chicago area including at the Art Institute, A.R.C. Gallery, and Klein Art Works Gallery and Evanston Arts Center, Evanston, Ill. His work is held in The Joan Flasch Artists' Book Collection, the School of the Art Institute of Chicago; the Ryrerson and Burnham Libraries, The Art Institute of Chicago, the Prints and Drawings Collection at The Art Institute of Chicago, and numerous private collections.

    The List Gallery is located in the Lang Performing Arts Center, Swarthmore College.

    Katherine Mack DECRA Postdoctoral Research Fellow CAASTRO-CpEPP Postdoctoral Research Fellow in Theorectical Cosmology School of Physics University of Melbourne, Australia

    “Dark Matter in the Cosmic Context” Dark matter forms the foundation for all cosmic structure, and its fundamental nature is one of science's most pressing enigmas. As we search for the most distant galaxies in the universe with radio and infrared observations, we are in a position to explore the particle physics of dark matter — the possibility of annihilation, decay, or other particle interactions — through its effects on early stars and galaxies.

    I will give an update on the quest to identify dark matter both in the lab and in the sky, major unsolved problems in dark matter theory, and how upcoming observations of the epoch of the first cosmic structures can be used to open a new window on the dark universe.

  • Bryn Mawr College Performing Arts Series: David Neumann / Advanced Beginner Group (View)
    When: Friday, February 24th, 2017 8:00pm - 10:00pm - Event ends on Sunday, February 26th, 2017

    Bessie-Award winning choreographer/performer David Neumann explores our impulse to report on calamity. A multidisciplinary dance-based performance inspired by the death of his father, I Understand Everything Better is a deeply felt and moving work that intersperses elements of Noh theater, video, music and text and blurs the lines between truth and fiction.

    Topics merge—the private and public, internal and external, the known and unknown—resulting in a mysteriously beautiful mix of indelible images that dance upon the contradictions of human life.

    One ticket to each Performing Arts Series event is available free of charge for students, faculty, and staff of Bryn Mawr, Haverford, and Swarthmore Colleges. Tickets are available for sale at regular rates for family members and guests. Regular Rates: Flex subscriptions to the remaining series events are available for $90 each, $75 for seniors.

  • Acting Capstone: Revolt. She Said. Revolt Again. (2/24-2/26) (View)
    When: Friday, February 24th, 2017 8:00pm - 12:00am
    Where: Lang Performing Arts Center 0 0 - LPAC Frear Ensemble Theater
    Revolt. She Said. Revolt Again. by Alice Birch breaks our notions of language and theatrical expectation to explore the ways women in the 21st century are stereotyped by words, labels, and cultural representation. Wildly funny and deeply subversive, Revolt careens between surreality and self-awareness in attempt to understand the glories and difficulties of daily revolution in our complex, contemporary world. This fierce new work takes on gender politics, power dynamics, and societal expectations in an unforgettable forum of dialogues. Directed by Alex Torra with Sarah Branch '17, Rex Chang '17, Citlali Pizarro '20, and Emily Uhlmann '19. Costume design by Laila Swanson, Lighting Design by Amanda Jensen.
