The HUB-Robeson Galleries are excited to present DREAMS an exhibition of film-based performance, ceramic sculpture, and installation by New York City based artist duo AYDO (A young Yu & Nicholas Oh). DREAMS will be on view in HUB Gallery from November 11 through March 5. All are welcome to join the artists for a School of Visual Arts John M. Anderson Endowed Lecture Series artist talk on November 14, 3–4 p.m. in the Palmer Lipton Auditorium followed by a reception celebrating their work 5–7 p.m. HUB Gallery, HUB-Robeson Center.
Dreams explores ancestral and personal dreams through sculptural and video installations. Ancestral dreams refer to the experiences of the artists' ancestors, which they recall and meditate on through spiritual ritual-based practices that center on themes of generational trauma, family, and diaspora.
Through performance-based film and site-specific installation, AYDO re-imagine Korean folklore and precolonial spiritual practices to reflect personal and Asian American perspectives. They are not faithful to historical canon and transgress older traditions, regenerating them within diasporic contexts through methods of disruption and transformation. Performances are filmed in spaces ranging from ritual spaces and temples to sites of colonization and ongoing political tension, from disfigured buildings and unmarked graves to immersive environments constructed in the studio. They activate these spaces by distilling narratives and visual cues from our heritage and, through processes of reimagination, create new stories. New stories explore themes of race, Western imperialism, gender, sexuality, and migration.
Join Shannon -- online or in-person -- to learn the fundamentals of Egyptian style belly dance. Each 45 minute class is a great way to get moving while learning about Egyptian music and dance. No experience is necessary
After a two year hiatus CAT(Community Argentine Tango) is back! We are now located at St. Andrew's church on Tuesday nights from 7-9pm. The church is located at 208 West Foster Avenue at State College less than a block away from the post office. Because it is contact dancing we ask that folks wear a mask and bring their vaccination cards. This is a precaution due to the new presence of the coronavirus in the central Pa area. Thank you.
