Considered a classic piece of absurdist theater, Line (1967) is a one-act drama about five people waiting in line for an unknown event.  Each of the characters uses their wiles in an attempt to be first in line, getting more and more vicious as the play continues.

Reception and Artist Talk

 

Emma Powell (Assistant Professor of Art) introduces her photography to Colorado College with this one-person exhibition. Powerfully interested in the history of photography, Powell incorporates historic processes and devices into her contemporary practice. Past projects have included archaic technologies such as wet plate collodion process and old Kodak cameras. Her recent work navigates the fine line between reality and fantasy, using self-portraiture to articulate personal narratives. Using a cyanotype process, Powell creates a backdrop in which archetypal universal symbols combine and collide.

A photographic exhibition by ANDREW MANLEY, Associate Professor in Theatre & Dance, who has been hunting reader boards for 20 years marveling, as only a foreigner from England can, at their unsung barmy brilliance.

Readings of Rembrandt

by Rebecca Tucker and Tip Ragan

Rembrandt Van Rijn’s fame as a painter was exceeded in his own lifetime by his renown as a master etcher. In an age and a culture dominated by the intellect, Rembrandt’s patrons treasured his ability to communicate the profoundly spiritual beauty of the earthbound and the tangible. He is greatly esteemed today for his sensitivity to the psychology of the common man. This deeply felt empathy is embodied in the thirty-five etchings that comprise this exhibition from the permanent collection of the Montgomery Museum of Fine Arts. Through a range of subjects—self-portraits, landscapes, depictions of Biblical stories and everyday life—Rembrandt captured the essence of mankind’s sense of the spiritual and personal, all portrayed within the context of the dynamic, contemporary society of seventeenth-century Holland.

Lecture: “Tesla: Inventor, Artist, and Entrepreneur: The Several Lives of Nikola Tesla” by W. Bernard Carlson

0701_arts_carlson

Thursday, October 2, 2014, 7pm

Cornerstone Arts Center Celeste Theatre

Author of a recently published and widely acclaimed biography of Tesla, W. Bernard Carlson’s research demystifies the legendary inventor by placing him within the cultural and technological context of his time. Carlson’s work examines Tesla’s inventions as well as the creation and maintenance of his celebrity. Drawing on original documents from Tesla’s private and public life, Carlson shows how he was an “idealist” inventor who sought the perfect experimental realization of a great idea or principle, and who skillfully sold his inventions to the public through mythmaking and illusion. Carlson’s biography sheds new light on Tesla’s visionary approach to invention and the business strategies behind his most important technological breakthroughs. Presented by the Innovation Institute, with support from the Economics Department’s Innovative Minds Lecture Series.
