Exhibition: "There's No Place Like Time: A Novel You Walk Through"

(part of a series)

Location: Snite Museum of Art

A Retrospective of Video Artist Alana Olsen / A Multimodal Installation by Andi & Lance Olsen

September 1 through December 1, 2018 / Scholz Family Works on Paper Gallery / Snite Museum of Art

There’s No Place Like Time is a novel you can walk through. It takes the form of a real retrospective of videos dedicated to the career of Alana Olsen, one of America’s most overlooked experimental video artists who never existed. An interplay of videos, texts, books, and interventions, There’s No Place Like Time forms a multimodal installation that translates Alana’s life (which began as a fictional character in Lance Olsen’s novel, Theories of Forgetting, 2014) into a three-dimensional reality.

Lecture: "Fragments and traces — destroying, restoring, and interpreting the Buddhist Caves of Longmen"

-

Location: 1030 Jenkins Nanovic Halls

 

Coleman Fragments And Traces

The Department of Art, Art History & Design and the Liu Institute for Asia and Asian Studies presents a lecture by Fletcher Coleman, joint-fellow for the study of Asian art at Notre Dame.

This talk explores the removal, restoration, and subsequent interpretation of Chinese Buddhist sculpture from the Longmen Grottoes at the turn of the 20th century. A UNESCO World Heritage Site, the Longmen Grottoes were “rediscovered” for the West in the 1890s. Uniquely positioned as a site of study, collecting, and teaching in Asia and the West, the Longmen Grottoes offer a distinctive lens on the birth of the discipline of East Asian art history.

Film: "A Ciambra"

-

Location: Browning Cinema

Directed by Jonas Carpignano (Italy), 2017
Screened in the Directors’ Fortnight, Cannes Film Festival 2017
Thursday, November 15, 7:00 pm

Introduced by Anthony Monta, Associate Director, Nanovic Institute for European Studies

From the director of MEDITERRANEA (2015) comes a new film about a boy coming of age in Reggio Calabria. In a tough neighborhood that mixes Italians, Africans, and Roma, growing up is chaotic business where success is less about money, which is elusive, than about obtaining some degree, or any degree, of empathy. A brilliant character study of friendship, Carpignano’s neorealism impressed Martin Scorsese, who agreed to serve as executive producer.
