COMMAND+ N Group Art Exhibition @ (SCENE) Metrospace
Sep 14 @ 1:00 pm – Oct 28 @ 5:00 pm
COMMAND+ N Group Art Exhibition @ (SCENE) Metrospace | East Lansing | Michigan | United States

Please stop into (SCENE) Metrospace to see our latest exhibition traveling to us from Bloomington, Indiana where it was recently on view at I Fell Gallery. COMMAND + N was co-curated by Anna Buckner and Sul-Jee Scully of Command Zine and Bill Bass and Raphael Cornford of Noise Project. This special exhibition brings together the work of nine artists; Roxana Azar, Israel Campos, Zachary Carlisle Davidson, Jonathan McFadden, Rowland Ricketts, Saman Sajasi, Caleb Weintraub, Tyler Wilkinson, and Chad Wys.

Curators Statement

I can’t follow everything going on. You can’t either. I can grab a few strands here and there, focusing my reading and my podcast listening and my conversations. Still, I’m falling woefully short. I know that any sources I access have bias, that I’ve been lied to by dominant narratives across media forms, that my experiences have been misrepresented if represented at all.

So let art speak to us all at once and emotively and with information and through reference and via updated, augmented, and even subverted traditions. For art does
indeed reveal our new narratives and emergent mythologies, forces that selectively continue and negate aspects of their older counterparts. “But which art?” you
might ask, “Where? How? Will there be beer?”

NOISE and COMMAND Zine co-curate the exhibition “COMMAND + N,” a traveling group show of artists whosework is invaluable, transformative and alive, acting upon us just as much as we respond in turn. Working across multiple media these artists reveal untold stories, recontexualize traditions, speak from marginalized identities, and play with the boundaries between digital and tangible.

Bringing together an expertise that spans the contemporary fields of painting, textile, printmaking, photography, comics and digital art, the curators present two exhibitions at I Fell in Bloomington, IN and (SCENE) Metrospace in East Lansing, MI, highlighting selected works as simultaneously discrete narrative objects and cohesively indicative of the story of our time.

Workshop: “Teaching and Researching Multimodal Literacy in Multilingual Learning and Teaching Contexts” @ 303 International Center
Oct 12 @ 9:00 am – 12:00 pm

Location: 303 International Center

Come join Dr. Youngjoo Yi, Associate Professor, College of Education and Human Ecology, The Ohio State University, to learn about teaching and researching multimodal literacy in multilingual learning. Note the talk is in the building Urban Planning on Red Cedar Road.

ABSTRACT:

In this talk I’d like to address issues of multimodal literacy practices of language learners and their teachers, especially with respect to theoretical, empirical, methodological, and pedagogical aspects of researching and teaching multimodal literacy. I begin my talk by briefly giving an overview of several major theories that have guided multimodal literacy studies in applied linguistics (e.g., multimodality, social semiotics, and multiliteracies). Then, drawing upon empirical findings, I discuss possibilities and challenges of engaging in multimodal literacy practices in learning and teaching English as an additional language. Finally, I’d like to engage the audience with the multimodal analysis of multimodal texts in order to discuss data analysis of multimodal composing and texts. I end my talk by proposing some future directions for researching and teaching multimodal literacy in multilingual contexts.
