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.

MSU Broad | MATTER(S): Bridging Research in the Arts and Sciences @ Eli and Edythe Broad Art Museum
Oct 17 2018 – Feb 3 2019 all-day
MSU Broad | MATTER(S): Bridging Research in the Arts and Sciences @ Eli and Edythe Broad Art Museum | East Lansing | Michigan | United States

This exhibition brings together new and recent projects by participants in the BRIDGE Artist-in-Residence Program at Michigan State University—a three-year-long initiative connecting international, cutting-edge artists with faculty and students across the university’s many colleges. With their shared interests in materiality and topical issues—the dual “matters” invoked in the exhibition title—the artists and their collaborators address a wide range of phenomena through interdisciplinary approaches to research, experimentation, and knowledge production. The exhibition thus reveals an “epistemological turn” in the arts and sciences, focusing on how knowledge is produced and how the process of production inflects meaning and interpretation. This major presentation highlights the incredible resources the university has to offer, and how artists and scientists work together to imagine the future, today.

Featured artists include Art Orienté Objet (Marion Laval-Jeantet & Benoît Mangin), Evelina Domnitch & Dmitry Gelfand, Tagny Duff, HeHe (Helen Evans & Heiko Hansen), Zbigniew Oksiuta, Kuai Shen, Stelarc, and Sissel Tolaas.

MATTER(S) matter(s): Bridging Research in the Arts and Sciences is co-curated by Steven L. Bridges, Associate Curator, and Jens Hauser, Guest Curator and MSU Distinguished Affiliated Faculty. Support for this exhibition is provided by the MSU College of Arts and Letters; MSU BRIDGE Artist-in-Residency Program, directed by Adam Brown, Associate Professor; Science Gallery Lab Detroit; Goethe-Institut Chicago; and the Eli and Edythe Broad endowed exhibitions fund.

2018-2019 Michigan State University Literacy Colloquy Presentation Dr. Gholdy Muhammad @ Erickson Room: 133F
Oct 30 @ 11:00 am – 12:30 pm
2018-2019 Michigan State University Literacy Colloquy Presentation  Dr. Gholdy Muhammad @ Erickson Room: 133F | East Lansing | Michigan | United States

From Dr. Muhammad’s community work with Black Girls W.R.I.T.E (Writing to Represent our Identities, our Times and our Excellence), historical and archival research on Black literary societies and from conducting a literature review over the past 25 years of Black girls’ literacies, she found that Black girls literacies are consumed in defining self, intellectualism, practices of resistance, and reading and writing toward social change. Drawing from the intellectual thought traditions of Black women leading thinkers, this session will unpack the Black Girls’ Literacies Framework (BGLF) with implications for literacy education and research. The presentation will conclude with a historically responsive four-layered equity model for teaching and learning that pushes beyond the limitations of the Common Core State Standards.
