Film Screening: ’The Black Candle’
- (5:30 PM - 6:45 PM) "The Black Candle" is a landmark, vibrant documentary film that uses Kwanzaa as a vehicle to explore and celebrate the African-American experience.

Narrated by world renowned poet Maya Angelou and directed by award-winning author and filmmaker MK Asante, "The Black Candle" is an extraordinary, inspirational story about the struggle and triumph of family, community, and culture.

Filmed across the United States, Africa, Europe. and the Caribbean, "The Black Candle" is a timely illumination on why the seven principles of Kwanzaa (unity, self-determination, collective work and responsibility, cooperative economics, purpose, creativity and faith) are relevant today.

The first feature film on Kwanzaa, "The Black Candle" traces the holiday’s growth from the first celebration in 1966 to its present-day reality as a global holiday embraced by over 20 million celebrants.

With vivid cinematography and an all-star cast that features NFL Legend Jim Brown, Hip Hop icon Chuck D, Kwanzaa’s founder Dr. Maulana Karenga, artist Synthia Saint James. and many others, "The Black Candle" is more than a film about a holiday: it’s a celebration of a people!

New Mythologies Opens at Fosdick-Nelson Gallery
- (7:00 PM - 9:00 PM) The Fosdick-Nelson Gallery at Alfred University is proud to present New Mythologies: Supernatural States and Polar Exploration an exhibition featuring the photographs of Scott Alario, Simen Johan, Sarah Anne Johnson, Lydia Anne McCarthy and Grant Willing. The exhibition, curated by Lydia Anne McCarthy, will open with an artist’s reception on January 31st from 7-9pm and will be on view through February 23, 2014. Sarah Anne Johnson will be giving an Artist’s Talk prior to the opening reception on January 31st at 4:30pm in Nevins Theatre. Lydia Anne McCarthy and Scott Alario will give a Gallery Talk on Wednesday, February 12th at noon. All events are free and open to the public.

The artists in the exhibition re-imagine the Nordic landscape, using photography to create alternate realities that both dazzle and quietly threaten. Inspired by the stark environment, extremes of dark and light, folklore, personal history and contemporary culture, each artist eschews the bounds of the traditional photograph in exchange for an experimental, manipulated approach, constructing place and disorienting the viewer. While the tools used are varied, each artist’s work alludes to the uncertainty of our present moment and its convergence with the past.

The Fosdick-Nelson Gallery is located on the third floor of Harder Hall on the Alfred University campus. Gallery hours are Monday through Friday 11am to 4pm, and 1-3pm on Saturday and Sunday. For more information about this show or upcoming events visit the website at: fosdicknelson.alfred.edu or contact Director, Sharon McConnell at mcconnells@alfred.edu.

’50 Years On - Soul of a Nation’
- (7:00 PM - 8:30 PM) From the producers of Faces of America and Portraits of Courage, comes a new series of plays available for Diversity and Cultural Heritage Month events on campuses across the United States.

These are seven plays addressing the imperative social justice issues that will need to be tackled by America’s next generations.

"50 Years On" examines the cultural and social issues from 50 or more years ago and sets them against our current state of affairs. Designed specifically for college audiences, the topics presented in these 65-minute, multi-media presentations are edutainment at its best; accessible and provoking, they create an understanding of what has gone before and an awareness and call for action for what still needs to be done.

The first play in the series, "Soul of a Nation," takes a look at the African-American journey to date. "During the presentation, we dig deep into the role of black women in American society, the horror of the justice system for black men, the phobias entangled in Afro-textured locks, communicable diseases and the black community on the DL, and the myth of everything being "all better now."

Math Talk: "Symmetry, Geometry, and Groups"
- (12:20 PM - 1:20 PM) Keith Jones will be giving a research talk at 12:20 p.m. on Friday, April 11 in Myer’s Hall Rm. 334,
"Symmetry, Geometry, and Groups."

In mathematics, a group is a formalization of the notion of symmetry. Geometric Group Theory seeks to leverage the relationship between groups and symmetry in a geometric context in order to better understand the structure of groups.

In this talk I will begin by introducing groups, and show how the notion of a "group action’’ formalizes the relationship between groups and symmetry. I will then show how every group can be viewed as a collection of symmetries of a geometric object, called a Cayley graph.

Time permitting, I will show how Cayley graphs may be used to determine whether certain infinite groups can be ``generated’’ by a finite number of elements.

"Evading Unseen Influence"
- (12:20 PM - 1:20 PM) "Evading Unseen Influence"

Outliers are common problems in statistical analyses, but detection is not straightforward; standard estimators tend to reflect outlying behavior, making outliers appear typical.

In this talk, I will introduce principal component analysis (PCA), explain its mathematical underpinnings, and describe how it may be utilized to obtain robust estimators independent of outlying influence.

This talk is intended for an audience with a basic understanding of matrix and vector algebra.

Kelly Kirtland will be giving a Research Talk on Tuesday April 15 in Myer’s Hall room 334 at 1:20 p.m.

’Elemental,’ An Exhibition by Damien Gilley
- (7:00 PM - 10:00 PM) "Elemental," An Exhibition by Damien Gilley

Location: The Belfry, 406 Canisteo St., Hornell
Date: Friday, September 5th
Time: 7-10 P.M.
Cost to Attend: Free/Open to the Public

Damien Gilley will be presenting an immersive installation using sculpture and drawing that reacts to the site as both a church and a home. Using common building materials, the work creates an expansive framework that references the dualistic identity of the building. The exhibition takes influence from Euclid’s seminal printed work which outlines foundational geometric postulates and propositions as essential truths.

The work is an homage to Euclid’s "constructions," looking not to reproduce his studies but explore geometry past physical limits. Illusionistic flat drawings, transparent walls, floating frameworks and chance sight lines elevate the process of building and making into a phenomena of perception.

Damien Gilley is an artist from Portland, OR whose work exposes hidden architectures through site-specific perceptual installations that combine drawing and sculptural approaches. Influenced by vintage computer graphics, techno-structures, and science fiction the work integrates digital languages with the physical world to question historical, current, and potential environments.

Colby Bird Lecture
- (5:00 PM - 6:00 PM) Date: Wednesday, Oct. 22
Location: Binns-Merrill Hall, Room 106C
Time: 5 P.M
Cost to Attend Event: Free and open to the public.
Sponsored by Committee or Division: The Division of Drawing, Painting and Photography and The Division of Sculpture and Dimensional Studies

Colby Bird’s at times obsessive, meditative practice bridges photography and sculpture, turning photographs into objects and striking a balance between the tangible and intangible. At once about process, intuitive making and conceptual quandaries, Bird re-works and re-interprets the familiar, turning the everyday into sensual objects that appear deceptively simple.

Labor and pleasure wrestle with each other through handmade lamps, photographs, and support stands, with no clear victor.

Colby Bird received an MFA from Rhode Island School of Design in 2004. Since then he has exhibited his work widely, including solo exhibitions in the University Galleries at Texas State University, Fitzory in New York, Lora Reynolds Gallery in Austin and Halsey-Mckay in East Hampton.

Bird has been included in group shows at the Aspen Art Museum, Arthouse in Austin, and the Hagedorn Foundation in Atlanta. His work is in the collection of the Whitney Museum of American Art and has been reviewed in Artforum, Art in America, The New Yorker and The Wall Street Journal. Bird currently lives and works in Los Angeles and New York.

Topic: "Is It Safe To Come Out Yet? The Japanese Ministry of Health’s Response to the Hikikomori Syndrome"

Hikikomori is a behavioral syndrome, which appeared among Japan’s male adolescents over the last twenty years. The main symptom of hikikomori (hee-kee-koh-MOH-ree) is for young men to either virtually or literally lock themselves away in their rooms for months, years or even decades at a time, with minimal social contact.
This presentation discusses several critical dimensions of the Japanese health policy response to hikikomori.

In this interactive workshop we will conduct an anonymous survey of those present and look together at the data. Where do we fall on the sexuality continuum? How do we label? How old were we when we came to our identities and to our sexualities?

In this fun and interactive program we explore different experiences of identity; the interplay between gender and sexuality; the complexities of attraction, and more.

She has presented at conferences and symposia on live art and science, as well as art and technology interfaces. She has been a visiting lecturer in the UK, Australia and United States in departments of visual art, drama and dance.

Recent works have seen her practice develop across interdisciplinary contexts ranging from art, science and technology to performance, live art and movement work.

Publications that have recently featured her work are: Sk-interfaces: Exploding Borders - Creating Membranes in Art, Technology and Society, edited by Jens Hauser, Liverpool University Press, 2008; Human Futures, edited by Andy Miah, FACT & Liverpool University Press 2009; Art + Science Now, ed. Stephen Wilson, Thames and Hudson, 2010; Marina Abramovic and the Future of Performance Art by Paula Orrelle, Prestel 2010; and The Many Headed Monster by Joshua Sofaer, London, Live Art Development Agency, 2010.

Though she primarily performs as a solo artist, in 2011 O’Reilly took part in the devising process and performed in the Robert Wilson directed ensemble work Life and Death of Marina Abramovic, 2011 - present, in numerous locations in the EU, UK and North America.

In 2013 she completed an AHRC funded creative fellows at Department of Drama, Queen Mary University of London developing Untitled Techné which explored performance works which hinged between the laboratory and the gallery.

Think Before You Treat
- (12:00 PM - 1:00 PM) Drawn to Diversity, an Alfred University program which addresses issues of equality through art and creativity, is planning a silent demonstration called "Think Before You Treat" regarding derogatory Halloween costumes this Thursday, Oct. 30 at noon.

Ten students will stand silently in the Ade Hall lobby wearing insensitive Halloween costumes that are often criticized but rarely accompanied with education about the topic. Costumes and education will include blackface minstrelsy, domestic violence, religious portrayals, disabilities, and ethnicity. The tagline for the program reads "Don’t Dress Up As Ignorance This Halloween."

While the artist-activists will not engage in dialogue, they will distribute Halloween candy with accompanying educational literature detailing the history of their chosen costume. The artist-activists have requested no photography of their costumes be taken so that their images are not shared without the accompanying education. The program does intend to photograph the models in their own controlled photo-shoot to create a poster campaign which will be available on their website for educational use.

AU Psychology Faculty Member Beth Johnson will be speaking on the topic of "Other People’s Reactions: A Social View of Sexual Assault." A brief description of the issues that will be discussed follows:

While the nation is in the midst of a serious and overdue conversation about the problem of sexual assault on college campuses, some people’s contributions to the discussion leave us shaking our heads, or maybe clenching our teeth, in anger, offense, or frustration.

The national media and Internet feed us a steady diet of official statements, off-the-cuff remarks, and implied positions that seem to exemplify victim blaming, institutionalized sexism, and hegemonic masculinity.

What is it about the topic of sexual assault that provokes such broadly varying reactions, seemingly in contrast to other crimes and social issues?

This discussion will cover some of the ways social science has explained other people’s reactions to sexual assault, and give more insight into our current situation and what might be done to change it.

The Women’s and Gender Studies Roundtables are free and open to the public. Light refreshments will be served.
