Samek Art Gallery Exhibit
Xiaoze Xie: Amplified Moments (1993-2008)
Since the mid nineties, artist Xiaoze Xie has created an impressive body of work. His sumptuously painted and conceptually rigorous paintings of stacks of newspapers, decaying books, museum libraries, and media images of current events have been exhibited throughout the US and internationally with increased frequency and critical acclaim. Since the mid 1990s, Xie has also created and exhibited conceptually well-realized installations, photographs, videos and prints that relate to and expand upon the focus of his paintings. During this time, Xie has produced a substantial body of work that, on one hand, focuses on the inextricably intertwined contemporary news and the media, and on the other, is a meditation on time, memory and history. And during this period, he has created many powerful and iconic images. http://web.bucknell.edu/x48517.xml

Weis Center Event – Fraülein Maria: Doug Elkins & Friends
A habit-forming (pun-intended), post-modernist deconstruction in dance of THE SOUND OF MUSIC, choreographed to the movie score, “ceaselessly brilliant and often hilarious” and “about as much visceral pleasure as it’s possible to have in a theater,” to quote Roslyn Sulcas inThe New York Times. The citation for a 2008 Bessie Award reads: “For creating a tender, rollicking excursion … called Fräulein Maria, which took us from the snow-capped peaks of Hollywood through the worlds of ‘downtown’ dance, Martha Graham, Willi Ninja, Balanchine, hip-hop, voguing, stepping, stomping, whirling, and flying like wild geese with the moon on their wings, a New York Dance and Performance Award is presented to Doug Elkins.” Unless The Sound of Music is, for you, a religious experience, see this!
