The Art of Being an Artist Lecture Series: Art, Ritual, and Healing by Air Megan May

Thursday, February 21 @ 18:3020:30
Flower City Arts Center (formerly Genesee Center for Arts and Education),
713 Monroe Ave.
Rochester, New York 14607 United States
+ Google Map

While an Artist is many things, they are first and foremost a human being on a unique journey. Artists, as it is for all creatives, have the responsibility of simultaneously creating a culture and questioning culture. Art should make you feel, think and respond to the world in a different way after encountering it. Artists are healers, thinkers, and visionaries. In this series, Photo Airs, Megan May, will take an in-depth look at several aspects of her own theory and practice of the Artists place in society today.

Each day we wake, rise and greet the day with a myriad of thoughts and decisions. These thoughts and decisions create our reality in a very real and practical way.

Please join us for an evening focused on the importance of Ritual, the role it plays in personal and collective healing and why the artist (and everyone!) need it to thrive!

Signal No Signal: Videos from VSW

Thursday, February 21 @ 19:0021:00
Visual Studies Workshop,
31 Prince St.
Rochester, New York 14607 United States
+ Google Map

Signal No Signal is an act of rescuing visions and voices from fragile archived media. It is a survey of wild, difficult, and honest experiments in narrative and form found in the videos of the Visual Studies Workshop Film/Video Collection. These videos — spanning 1972-2003 — have been curated and digitized by filmmakers Mary Lewandowski and Nilson Carroll as part of an initiative to shed light on and breathe life into VSW's unique magnetic media collection. Stranded on magnet frequencies of VHS and Umatic tape, these fervent documents of highly personal commentary, ritual editing, and technological exploration are reanimated tonight.

Io C'è (Just Believe) screening

Thursday, February 21 @ 19:0020:40
Little Theatre,
240 East Ave. #100
Rochester, New York 14604 United States
+ Google Map

The Little will screen Io C'è (Just Believe, Alessandro Aronadio, Italy 2018, 100 min.) as part of the Italian Film Series.

Massimo is a classic Italian "rascal," the owner of a B&B in the center of Rome, whose business is limited by tax constraints. He enviously watches as a convent run by nuns on the other side of the road welcomes in tourists, who leave spontaneous and lavish gifts at the end of their stay. All completely tax-free.

Massimo realizes that if he wants to avoid paying tax, he'll have to create a "place of worship." After trying to get into the more or less restricted circles of Catholicism, Judaism, and Islam with a series of rather hilarious meetings, Massimo has a sort of "epiphany" and decides to create a new religion. Assisted by his accountant sister Adriana and the boyfriend of his ex-wife Marco, a sort of guru-writer with no actual readers, the protagonist comes up with "Ionism," a religion that places the individual at the center of the universe. "You will have no God but yourself."

The film follows the story of the crew from sea to land as Ensign Keith and Lieutenant Maryk (Van Johnson) are tried for mutiny by a court-martial. Based on Herman Wouk's Pulitzer Prize—winning novel, The Caine Mutiny received seven Oscar nominations, including for Best Picture and Best Actor (Bogart).

Oslo, 1987. Seventeen-year-old Euronymous is determined to escape his idyllic Scandinavian hometown and create "true Norwegian black metal" with his band, Mayhem. He's joined by equally fanatical youths – Dead and Varg. Believing that they're on the cusp of a musical revolution, the group gets even darker driven by the black metal dogma to spread evil.

They begin burning down churches throughout the countryside and stealing tombstones for their record store. But when the press catches up with them and Euronymous takes more credit than he's earned for the group's violent acts, Varg, fresh out of jail, arranges a dark encounter to settle the score and ultimately determine who the darkest black metal musician is.
