Independent Documentary Series:TROUBLEMAKERS: THE STORY OF LAND ART

Thursday, May 5th, 2016 5:00 pm
$10.00
BUY TICKETS HERE FOR THURS. 5/5  BUY TICKETS HERE FOR FRI. 5/6 Troublemakers unearths the history of land art in the tumultuous late 1960s and early 1970s. The film features a cadre of renegade New York artists that sought to transcend the limitations of painting and sculpture by producing earthworks on a monumental scale in the desolate desert spaces of the American southwest. Today these works remain impressive not only for the sheer audacity of their makers but also for their out-sized ambitions to break free from traditional norms. The film casts these artists in a heroic light, which is exactly how they saw themselves. Iconoclasts who changed the landscape of art forever, these revolutionary, antagonistic creatives risked their careers on radical artistic change and experimentation, and took on the establishment to produce art on their own terms. The film includes rare footage and interviews which unveil the enigmatic lives and careers of storied artists Robert Smithson(Spiral Jetty), Walter De Maria (The Lightning Field)and Michael Heizer (Double Negative); a headstrong troika that established the genre. As the film makes clear, in making works that can never be possessed as an object in a gallery, these troublemakers stand in marked contrast to the hyper-speculative contemporary art world of today. Troublemakers points out that land art was rife with contradiction and conflict, a site where architecture, landscape, sculpture, technology, archaeology and photography would all converge. Against the backdrop of the Vietnam War, Cold War anxieties and other political uncertainties of the nuclear age, land artists often subscribed to a dystopian view of the future that questioned the military-industrial complex, consumerism and the banalities of modern life and culture. The period was also marked by the release of the first image of the entire earth. Produced by NASA, such images turned the conceptual space of earth into a two-dimensional sphere; an object on which to conceivably draw, design and create. The most compelling land art sites offered viewers a means to imagine and negotiate the scale of the human body with the enormity of our planet. Land artists were exploring a larger canvas to work on while simultaneously seeking to create works that induced awe in the viewer, thus producing a new kind of pilgrimage and a new kind of visceral viewing experience. The film shows how nature performs in these works and alters them over time sometimes radically reclaiming them, creating an ongoing competitive dialogue between artist and the natural world. Using original footage produced with helicopters and rare re-mastered vintage footage from the period, Crump’s cinematic journey takes viewers on a thrill ride through the most significant land art sites in California, Nevada, New Mexico and Utah, an immersive and physically transportive experience that movie goers will not forget.

Fleet Movement Explorations

Sunday, May 8th, 2016 3:00 pm
Drop-in dance workshop, by donation
Fleet Movement Explorations is an experimental dance class in which we explore, among other things, developmental movement patterns while sensing ourselves in space, weight, time, and the three dimensions. This is extended to explore the articulation of movement initiations and refinement of body alignments. We play with evoking movement though qualities of feeling, shape, force, idea, word and more. From this basis, we work out interactive improvisational skits. The class is basically informal, challenging, and fun, and a good movement workout. It plays spontaneously with forces, shapes, images, and ideas rather than specific dance technique. At times we will have guest teachers. All are welcome. Lead by Becky Burrill—dancer-choreographer, developmental-creative arts educator, writer, visual artist.

Open University: The Making of the New England Reform Community with John Cumbler

Monday, May 9th, 2016 11:00 am
5 Mondays, 11am - 1pm
REGISTER HERE Mondays, April 11, 18, 25, May 2,  May 9,  11 am-1pm.  Most of us are familiar with the big names in the abolitionist struggle, such as William Lloyd Garrison, Wendell Philips or Lucy Stone, and many of us are aware that New England led the nation in many of the reforms of the nineteenth century. What we know less about are the activities of abolitionists who were not full time activists, like Garrison and Phillips, but ordinary citizens who held regular jobs. It was these citizens who ultimately created the movement of which Garrison, Phillips and Stone came to be the public figures.  After the Civil War the reform community that came together to oppose slavery went on to struggle for equal rights, public health, women’s rights, and other significant reform activities. This course will look at the creation of that reform community and its activities beyond slavery. For info about class sign ups, due dates for payments, refunds, field trips CLICK HERE

REGISTER HERE Five Wednesdays, April 27,  May 4, 11, 18, 25  2-4pm. Join Deborah on a journey through the history of the Provincetown art colony, which can be viewed as a microcosm of 20th century American art. The course will begin with the launching of the colony when Charles Hawthorne opened his school in 1899. It will look at early conflicts between the traditionalists and modernists, the impact of the Hans Hofmann School, and the golden years of the late ‘40s, ‘50s, and ‘60s, when Abstract Expressionists were in town and New York galleries had satellite locations in Provincetown. When the art colony began to languish in the late ‘60s, the effort to revitalize it with the founding of the Fine Arts Work Center and the impact of Long Point Gallery will attest to the determination to maintain the town’s cultural integrity.

Love Is Blind: Music Inspired by Amy Winehouse

Saturday, May 14th, 2016 7:30 pm
with Emily Wade Adams. $25 General Admission
BUY TICKETS HERE Prez Hall will be transformed into a New York City jazz club for the unique, one-of-a-kind production that sold out at its Cotuit Arts Center premier last June.  Emily Wade Adams, a Nauset High graduate now living in New York City, and producer Ruth Condon of Brave Horse Music bring music inspired by the late Amy Winehouse to life in this one-of-a-kind production. Winehouse, who would have been 32 in September, died tragically four years ago, leaving behind a catalog of some of the best music of the last decade. From her solo hits to her duets with artists including Tony Bennett, her talent was unparalleled. Her recordings span genres, covering everything from Jazz to Motown to Hip Hop. Her voice, which has been compared to Billie Holiday and Sarah Vaughan, had a rich quality unexpected in someone so frail, so delicate. "Love is Blind" features a combination of the standards that inspired Winehouse, a selection of her own compositions, and songs of contemporary artists she influenced. The music is the star of this show, featuring a world-class band and a collection of hits that will have you on your feet dancing by the night’s end.Ms. Adams, formerly of the San Francisco swing band The Cosmo Alleycats, first debuted this show in San Francisco in 2012. Of Winehouse, she says, “There is so much depth to her music. You can listen to it over and over again and catch something new each time, whether in her clever lyrics, unique arrangements or unusual - and virtuosic - vocal choices. I admire her for bringing jazz to a new audience.” WATCH VIDEO HERE
