Herndon Gallery hosts public talk with artist Stephen Marc

The Herndon Gallery at Antioch College is pleased to invite the public to a gallery reception and presentation by photographer/digital montage artist Stephen Marc on Friday, July 11, 2014, at 7:30 p.m. in the Herndon Gallery.   

Marc will discuss his use of archival documents and images as well as extensive research in his creative process. Marc constructs compelling layered narratives made up of his panoramic photographs of historical landscapes interwoven with found remnants of the past—racially charged caricatures and cartoons, trade cards, illustrations and slave documents. The results are challenging, visually charged images of the places and remnants of the African Diaspora. In his artist statement, Marc writes, “My work is an interpretive relocation of, and commentary on, the limited representations and accounts of the black experience, into the early years of the 20th century, that were usually defined from outside the community. My intent is to allow the haunting of the past to symbolically resurface providing a layered contextualization of what was…”

"Call & Response" a dynamic of black women and performance

The Antioch College performance program is pleased to present Call & Response, a dynamic of black women and performance, held July 18-22 and August 23-24, 2014.

Part symposium, part residency, part festival, Call & Response is an innovative convening of black women and performance at Antioch College. Organized by Gabrielle Civil, Ph.D., associate professor of performance at Antioch College, this event welcomes to campus six diverse black women artists with distinct and different relationships to the words “black,” “women” and “performance.”

Participating artists include Gabrielle Civil (Yellow Springs, OH), Duriel E. Harris (Chicago, IL), Kenyatta A. C. Hinkle (Los Angeles, CA), Rosamond S. King (New York, NY), Wura-Natasha Ogunji (Austin, TX), Miré Regulus (Minneapolis, MN) and Awilda Rodríguez Lora (San Juan, Puerto Rico).

July 18-22, 2014, Civil and the resident artists will engage each other, connect with Antioch College students and community members, and collaborate on a public “call”—a collective prompt for artistic action—which will be announced on the fifth day at Antioch College’s Community Meeting.

When the artists meet again August 23-24, 2014, they will present their own “responses” to the call in a showing of public performances. Antioch students will help coordinate the circulation of the call (on campus, in the community and online) and will have opportunities to develop and present their own responses.

Inspired by the signature African-American form of interactive performance, Call & Response will foster and build community, manifest experiential learning, and showcase cutting-edge performance practice at Antioch College.
