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.

World View Lecture: Ron Suskind @ Wharton Center for Performing Arts
Oct 15 @ 7:30 pm – 9:00 pm
World View Lecture: Ron Suskind @ Wharton Center for Performing Arts | East Lansing | Michigan | United States

Ron Suskind’s book, Life, Animated: A Story of Sidekicks, Heroes and Autism, examines his family’s twenty-year adventure of the heart with his son, Owen. Having lost his speech at age three, Owen used animated Disney movies to make sense of the world. As his family learned to “speak Disney” along with him, Owen created a method to help parents and medical experts reach kids with autism. In this deeply personal but universally resonant presentation, the Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist shares Owen’s journey from quiet solitude to animated communication. Their motto—your passion is your pathway—now guides educators, therapists, and parents in tapping the deep potential in all of us.

The World View Lecture Series is made possible in part by the MSU Office of the President. This presentation is presented in partnership with Wharton Center and the Leading Voices Series of MSU’s College of Arts & Letters and the Department of Theatre, and is generously supported by the Broad College of Business; College of Natural Science; and University Outreach and Engagement.
