- Location: Nevins Theatre, Powell Campus Center

The Bergren Forum sponsored by the Division of Human Studies, College of Liberal Arts and Sciences and the Provost's Office will be meeting at 12:10 p.m., Thursday October 19 in the Nevins Theatre, Powell Campus Center.,

Speaker: Colleen Culley
Title: "Dude Moves: Versions of Meaning in this Pop-Culture Body-language Stuff"

After years of teaching embodied communication in businesses and at Johnson Graduate School of Management at Cornell University, I have grown frustrated by the messages around movement taught in most body language courses and the support they garner from their pop-culture counter-parts. Through the lens of Laban/Bartenieff Movement Analysis, this discussion reflects on movement coaching and interpretation in body-language literature and pop-culture (Saturday Night Live, John Wayne, Big Lebowski) and their versions of an embodied and powerful masculinity.

Opening Reception: Alfred Ceramic Art Museum Exhibitions

- Location: Alfred Ceramic Art Museum
(6:00 PM - 9:00 PM)
hereafter: Kelcy Chase Folsom; 2015 -2018
Robert Chapman Turner Teaching Fellow
Holding the Line: Ceramic Sculpture Stanley Rosen
Minyao: Art of the Everyday
a Selection of Chinese Folk Pottery
October 19, 2017 - January 1, 2018

Sponsored by: Alfred Ceramic Art Museum

Three new exhibitions are opening simultaneously on October 19, 2017.

Holding the Line, ceramic sculptor Stanley Rosen's (MFA Alfred '56) retrospective is revelatory. Rosen has long been a quiet visionary. His little known work from the late 1950's, 1960's and 70's will astonish.

Concurrent with the Rosen exhibition the Museum is celebrating the break out career of Kelsey Chase Folsom. His thoughtful, poetic and often challenging work will be on view in the exhibition hereafter. The Museum will also feature Minyao (peoples' pottery): The Art of the Everyday. Supported by a grant from the Asian Cultural Council-Rockefeller Foundation, the collection of work on view is the result of a concerted effort to honor and preserve a powerful, disappearing ceramic language of the Chinese people.

Museum hours are 10:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m. Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday; 10:00 a.m. – 7:00 p.m. Thursday; 10:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m. Saturday and Sunday.

Closing Reception at the Cohen Gallery on Main Street

- Location: 55 North Main Street
(6:00 PM - 9:00 PM)
- Link: https://art.alfred.edu/facilities/cohen.cfm?

6:00 p.m. - 9:00 p.m., Thursday, October 19, we'll be hosting a special closing reception at the Cohen with artist Desiree Des?. Light refreshments will be served.

Closing Thursday:
Liz Ainslie "The Part of Sight"
The elements within Liz Ainslie's paintings function as fundamental building blocks of perception-represented and rearranged. As a poet might reorder the parts of speech, Ainslie uses the language of abstract painting as a structure upon which to develop a visual investigation of human perception. To this end, the artist has developed a vocabulary of non-objective forms that sidle up with everyday objects, bodies, architecture, and the natural world.

Equally important to Ainslie's work is her manipulation of space through the use of color theory. Each of her paintings holds a record of the color relationships developed by mixing oil paint on the palette and drawing from the memory of observed color. Ainslie uses photography as a sketchbook, capturing interactions between architecture, light with natural interventions on human spaces.

Desiree Des "Real Lookers"
Using consumer-grade cameras, on-demand printing processes, and readymade home goods, Brooklyn-based artist Desire Des examines the tension between the photographic image and its physical presence in space. The works presented in Real Lookers often upend viewer's expectations by throwing the ordinary legibility of snapshots and household wares into question. New perspectives are overlaid on functional objects-like plates, picture frames, and blankets-by compounding their appearances with imagery referring back to themselves. In this fashion, American life's everyday materialism is represented through the interaction of its most familiar implements and their own images-that is, between reality and its depiction.

Des often creates socially engaging contexts for her art multiples, awarding them as prizes at public events, mailing them through the post, or selling them at a low cost in retail environments of her own devisement. This ensures that almost any viewer can choose to take something home and experience it on their own terms-even (and especially) if that means the works are placed into contexts beyond the artist's original intention or control. In this way, Des hopes to encourage conversation about the role of art outside of traditional galleries and underscore how seeing a work over time changes both it and the viewer.

For this show, Des has created a self-service, honor-system, pay-as-you-wish Souvenir Shop where visitors may take home a postcard or poster and "pay" with their own artworks or other monetary and non-monetary offerings. These transactional goods will be displayed on pedestals in the gallery, and contributors are welcome to add the Real Lookers exhibition to their résumé.

Trade Objects for Art at the Cohen

- Location: Cohen Gallery
(All Day)
As part of her exhibition "Real Lookers" at the Cohen Gallery, artist Desiree Des ('01) invites community members to exchange art or other monetary and non-monetary offerings for the posters, postcards, and hand-made buttons in her self-service, honor-system Souvenir Shop inside the gallery. Items exchanged for art souvenirs are put on display and become a community-sourced exhibition within the exhibition.
