 “Human history is in essence a history of ideas” – H.G. Wells

This project focuses on the transformation of organic/non-organic evidence of our presence in the contemporary landscape through sculpture, drawing, print and film. Some of the oldest ways of expressing and documenting the human experience has been through mark making and print. Lines connecting like maps with other lines inter-connecting tracks, bridging between past, presence and futures.

 “Human history is in essence a history of ideas” – H.G. Wells

 “Human history is in essence a history of ideas” – H.G. Wells

This project focuses on the transformation of organic/non-organic evidence of our presence in the contemporary landscape through sculpture, drawing, print and film. Some of the oldest ways of expressing and documenting the human experience has been through mark making and print. Lines connecting like maps with other lines inter-connecting tracks, bridging between past, presence and futures.

Livre d’Artiste d’Aujourd’hui: Interdisciplinary Collaborations 
November 17, 2014 - March 20, 2015

Centre Gallery

The exhibition has been organized by Alexander Campos, Executive Director of the Center for Book Arts, and Maddy Rosenberg.

What is a livre d’artiste? It was traditionally put together by a publisher asking and artist and writer (who often didn’t know each other) to create work for a publication.  The collaboration was usually an arranged one and the production value was usually of high quality produced in a limited run.

For this exhibition however, the curators are interested to see how artists, writers, performers have found ways to self-produce publications, augmenting the collaborative spirit embedded in the livre d’ artiste concept.

The exhibition will present work of a true collaboration, not one artists responding to a finished work, but instead one in which both contributors have equal weight.

Collaborations being featured include: Rosaire Appel & Myrna Burks; Samanta Batra-Mehta & Sweta Srivastava Vikram; Rosemarie Chiarlone, Susan Weiner, Elaine Wright & Alfredo Useche; Beatrice Coron & Elizabeth DeSole; Martin Demaine, Erik Demaine & Michael Benson; Rolando Estevez-Jordan & Ruth Behar; Anne Gilman & David Unger; Ximena Perez-Grobet  & AJO ( Maria Jose de la Huz); Roni Gross, Peter Schell & Nancy Campbell; Mary Heebner; John Blackwell, Tomio Munen, Tessa Tapscott & David Shelton; Wennie Huang & Ed Go; Despo Magoni & over 30 various collaborators; Iviva Olenick, Luke Hoorelbeke & Community Members; Robin Price & Joyce Cutler-Shaw; Felicia Rice, Monica Brown & Jenny Callanaupa Huarhua; Miriam Schaer & Mary Florio; Martin Boykan; Robbin Ami Silverberg & Andras Des; Sarah Stengle & Michael Joseph; and Ewa Zebroswski & Anne Michaels.

THE DARK VALLEY (Das finstere Tal)

A film by Andreas Prochaska
Cast: Sam Riley, Paula Beer, Tobias Moretti

Austria, Germany | 2014 | 115 min | Thriller, Mystery | Unrated
German with English subtitles

Somewhere high in the Alps, a lone rider makes his way along a hidden path and reaches a small village, tucked away between the steep mountains. This stranger goes by the name of Greider; nobody knows where he’s from and, met with blatant distrust, nobody wants him in the village. The sons of Old Brenner, the village patriarch who holds the entire community under his threatening ways, would have chased him away if Greider hadn’t given them a fistful of gold coins. Greider introduces himself as a photographer, and Brenner’s sons provide him with shelter for the winter at the house of widow Gader and her young daughter, Luzi. Soon to be married to her sweetheart, Lukas, Luzi is full of trepidation as the big day draws near because, in this valley, a wedding comes with a terrible tradition. And whoever opposes this tradition will be subjected to a merciless punishment.

Somewhere high in the Alps, a lone rider makes his way along a hidden path and reaches a small village, tucked away between the steep mountains. This stranger goes by the name of Greider; nobody knows where he’s from and, met with blatant distrust, nobody wants him in the village. The sons of Old Brenner, the village patriarch who holds the entire community under his threatening ways, would have chased him away if Greider hadn’t given them a fistful of gold coins. Greider introduces himself as a photographer, and Brenner’s sons provide him with shelter for the winter at the house of widow Gader and her young daughter, Luzi. Soon to be married to her sweetheart, Lukas, Luzi is full of trepidation as the big day draws near because, in this valley, a wedding comes with a terrible tradition. And whoever opposes this tradition will be subjected to a merciless punishment.

This project focuses on the transformation of organic/non-organic evidence of our presence in the contemporary landscape through sculpture, drawing, print and film. Some of the oldest ways of expressing and documenting the human experience has been through mark making and print. Lines connecting like maps with other lines inter-connecting tracks, bridging between past, presence and futures.

November 17, 2014 - March 20, 2015

Centre Gallery

The exhibition has been organized by Alexander Campos, Executive Director of the Center for Book Arts, and Maddy Rosenberg.

What is a livre d’artiste? It was traditionally put together by a publisher asking and artist and writer (who often didn’t know each other) to create work for a publication.  The collaboration was usually an arranged one and the production value was usually of high quality produced in a limited run.

For this exhibition however, the curators are interested to see how artists, writers, performers have found ways to self-produce publications, augmenting the collaborative spirit embedded in the livre d’ artiste concept.

The exhibition will present work of a true collaboration, not one artists responding to a finished work, but instead one in which both contributors have equal weight.

Collaborations being featured include: Rosaire Appel & Myrna Burks; Samanta Batra-Mehta & Sweta Srivastava Vikram; Rosemarie Chiarlone, Susan Weiner, Elaine Wright & Alfredo Useche; Beatrice Coron & Elizabeth DeSole; Martin Demaine, Erik Demaine & Michael Benson; Rolando Estevez-Jordan & Ruth Behar; Anne Gilman & David Unger; Ximena Perez-Grobet  & AJO ( Maria Jose de la Huz); Roni Gross, Peter Schell & Nancy Campbell; Mary Heebner; John Blackwell, Tomio Munen, Tessa Tapscott & David Shelton; Wennie Huang & Ed Go; Despo Magoni & over 30 various collaborators; Iviva Olenick, Luke Hoorelbeke & Community Members; Robin Price & Joyce Cutler-Shaw; Felicia Rice, Monica Brown & Jenny Callanaupa Huarhua; Miriam Schaer & Mary Florio; Martin Boykan; Robbin Ami Silverberg & Andras Des; Sarah Stengle & Michael Joseph; and Ewa Zebroswski & Anne Michaels.

 “Human history is in essence a history of ideas” – H.G. Wells

This project focuses on the transformation of organic/non-organic evidence of our presence in the contemporary landscape through sculpture, drawing, print and film. Some of the oldest ways of expressing and documenting the human experience has been through mark making and print. Lines connecting like maps with other lines inter-connecting tracks, bridging between past, presence and futures.

Livre d’Artiste d’Aujourd’hui: Interdisciplinary Collaborations 
November 17, 2014 - March 20, 2015

Centre Gallery

The exhibition has been organized by Alexander Campos, Executive Director of the Center for Book Arts, and Maddy Rosenberg.

What is a livre d’artiste? It was traditionally put together by a publisher asking and artist and writer (who often didn’t know each other) to create work for a publication.  The collaboration was usually an arranged one and the production value was usually of high quality produced in a limited run.

For this exhibition however, the curators are interested to see how artists, writers, performers have found ways to self-produce publications, augmenting the collaborative spirit embedded in the livre d’ artiste concept.

The exhibition will present work of a true collaboration, not one artists responding to a finished work, but instead one in which both contributors have equal weight.

Collaborations being featured include: Rosaire Appel & Myrna Burks; Samanta Batra-Mehta & Sweta Srivastava Vikram; Rosemarie Chiarlone, Susan Weiner, Elaine Wright & Alfredo Useche; Beatrice Coron & Elizabeth DeSole; Martin Demaine, Erik Demaine & Michael Benson; Rolando Estevez-Jordan & Ruth Behar; Anne Gilman & David Unger; Ximena Perez-Grobet  & AJO ( Maria Jose de la Huz); Roni Gross, Peter Schell & Nancy Campbell; Mary Heebner; John Blackwell, Tomio Munen, Tessa Tapscott & David Shelton; Wennie Huang & Ed Go; Despo Magoni & over 30 various collaborators; Iviva Olenick, Luke Hoorelbeke & Community Members; Robin Price & Joyce Cutler-Shaw; Felicia Rice, Monica Brown & Jenny Callanaupa Huarhua; Miriam Schaer & Mary Florio; Martin Boykan; Robbin Ami Silverberg & Andras Des; Sarah Stengle & Michael Joseph; and Ewa Zebroswski & Anne Michaels.

THE DARK VALLEY (Das finstere Tal)

A film by Andreas Prochaska
Cast: Sam Riley, Paula Beer, Tobias Moretti

Austria, Germany | 2014 | 115 min | Thriller, Mystery | Unrated
German with English subtitles

Somewhere high in the Alps, a lone rider makes his way along a hidden path and reaches a small village, tucked away between the steep mountains. This stranger goes by the name of Greider; nobody knows where he’s from and, met with blatant distrust, nobody wants him in the village. The sons of Old Brenner, the village patriarch who holds the entire community under his threatening ways, would have chased him away if Greider hadn’t given them a fistful of gold coins. Greider introduces himself as a photographer, and Brenner’s sons provide him with shelter for the winter at the house of widow Gader and her young daughter, Luzi. Soon to be married to her sweetheart, Lukas, Luzi is full of trepidation as the big day draws near because, in this valley, a wedding comes with a terrible tradition. And whoever opposes this tradition will be subjected to a merciless punishment.

LONG LIVE FREEDOM (Viva la libertà)

A film by Roberto Andò
Cast: Toni Servillo, Valerio Mastandrea, Valeria Bruni Tedeschi

Italy | 2013 | 94 min. | Comedy, Drama | Not Rated
Italian with English subtitles

In this elegant and chilling story about world politics, the great Toni Servillo defies expectations playing two roles, imbuing each character with brilliant nuance and astonishing attention to detail. In the first, he personifies political failure in the role of the disgraced ideologue and party leader, Enrico Oliveri. In the second, he embodies the shrewd genius of a madman as Oliveri’s unhinged twin brother who seizes control of the nation amidst the void of his brother’s disappearance. As the national election approaches, Enrico Oliveri has plummeted in the polls and his supporters and adversaries alike begin to acknowledge his impending downfall. Unwilling to face the failure of his party and his nation, Oliveri vanishes into the night. The party leadership tries to hedge for time by concealing Oliveri’s disappearance with a series of acrobatic sidesteps. In a desperate move, right hand man Andrea Bottini seeks out Oliveri’s look-alike twin brother, Giovanni Ernani, a prolific author and philosopher who is freshly released from an insane asylum. Slowly and steadily, Giovanni insinuates himself into his brother’s public persona, impersonating Oliveri’s every tick and mannerism exquisitely – yet slightly imperfectly. Giovanni quickly surpasses his brother’s political prowess with an eerie talent for rallying the masses through fearless and heroic speeches. As Andò shifts between the failure of the sincere intellectual and the heroics of a madman, he probes the driving forces behind our contemporary global political reality leaving behind a rich web of questions in this unpredictable and provocative thriller.

BAD HAIR (PELO MALO)


A film by Mariana Rondón
Cast: Samuel Lange Zambrano, Samantha Castillo, Beto Benites

Venezuela, Perú, Germany | 2013 | 93 min. | Drama | Unrated
Spanish with English subtitles

In Pelo Malo, Junior (Samuel Lange Zambrano) is a nine-year-old boy who has stubbornly curly hair, or Bad Hair. He wants to have it straightened for his yearbook picture, like a fashionable pop singer with long, ironed hair. This puts him at odds with his mother Marta, a young, unemployed widow. Junior, Marta, and his baby brother live in a large multi-family building. Overwhelmed by what it takes to survive in the chaotic city of Caracas, Marta finds it increasingly difficult to tolerate Junior's fixation with his looks. The more Junior tries to look sharp and make his mother love him, the more she rejects him. His paternal grandmother, a witness to this rejection, asks Marta to give her the boy so that he can look after her. Marta refuses and tries to correct her son's obsession by "setting an example," a cruel moment which was meant to be a lesson. Junior finds himself cornered, face to face with a painful decision.

LONG LIVE FREEDOM (Viva la libertà)

A film by Roberto Andò
Cast: Toni Servillo, Valerio Mastandrea, Valeria Bruni Tedeschi

Italy | 2013 | 94 min. | Comedy, Drama | Not Rated
Italian with English subtitles

In this elegant and chilling story about world politics, the great Toni Servillo defies expectations playing two roles, imbuing each character with brilliant nuance and astonishing attention to detail. In the first, he personifies political failure in the role of the disgraced ideologue and party leader, Enrico Oliveri. In the second, he embodies the shrewd genius of a madman as Oliveri’s unhinged twin brother who seizes control of the nation amidst the void of his brother’s disappearance. As the national election approaches, Enrico Oliveri has plummeted in the polls and his supporters and adversaries alike begin to acknowledge his impending downfall. Unwilling to face the failure of his party and his nation, Oliveri vanishes into the night. The party leadership tries to hedge for time by concealing Oliveri’s disappearance with a series of acrobatic sidesteps. In a desperate move, right hand man Andrea Bottini seeks out Oliveri’s look-alike twin brother, Giovanni Ernani, a prolific author and philosopher who is freshly released from an insane asylum. Slowly and steadily, Giovanni insinuates himself into his brother’s public persona, impersonating Oliveri’s every tick and mannerism exquisitely – yet slightly imperfectly. Giovanni quickly surpasses his brother’s political prowess with an eerie talent for rallying the masses through fearless and heroic speeches. As Andò shifts between the failure of the sincere intellectual and the heroics of a madman, he probes the driving forces behind our contemporary global political reality leaving behind a rich web of questions in this unpredictable and provocative thriller.

BAD HAIR (PELO MALO)


A film by Mariana Rondón
Cast: Samuel Lange Zambrano, Samantha Castillo, Beto Benites

Venezuela, Perú, Germany | 2013 | 93 min. | Drama | Unrated
Spanish with English subtitles

In Pelo Malo, Junior (Samuel Lange Zambrano) is a nine-year-old boy who has stubbornly curly hair, or Bad Hair. He wants to have it straightened for his yearbook picture, like a fashionable pop singer with long, ironed hair. This puts him at odds with his mother Marta, a young, unemployed widow. Junior, Marta, and his baby brother live in a large multi-family building. Overwhelmed by what it takes to survive in the chaotic city of Caracas, Marta finds it increasingly difficult to tolerate Junior's fixation with his looks. The more Junior tries to look sharp and make his mother love him, the more she rejects him. His paternal grandmother, a witness to this rejection, asks Marta to give her the boy so that he can look after her. Marta refuses and tries to correct her son's obsession by "setting an example," a cruel moment which was meant to be a lesson. Junior finds himself cornered, face to face with a painful decision.

Livre d’Artiste d’Aujourd’hui: Interdisciplinary Collaborations 
November 17, 2014 - March 20, 2015

Centre Gallery

The exhibition has been organized by Alexander Campos, Executive Director of the Center for Book Arts, and Maddy Rosenberg.

What is a livre d’artiste? It was traditionally put together by a publisher asking and artist and writer (who often didn’t know each other) to create work for a publication.  The collaboration was usually an arranged one and the production value was usually of high quality produced in a limited run.

For this exhibition however, the curators are interested to see how artists, writers, performers have found ways to self-produce publications, augmenting the collaborative spirit embedded in the livre d’ artiste concept.

The exhibition will present work of a true collaboration, not one artists responding to a finished work, but instead one in which both contributors have equal weight.

Collaborations being featured include: Rosaire Appel & Myrna Burks; Samanta Batra-Mehta & Sweta Srivastava Vikram; Rosemarie Chiarlone, Susan Weiner, Elaine Wright & Alfredo Useche; Beatrice Coron & Elizabeth DeSole; Martin Demaine, Erik Demaine & Michael Benson; Rolando Estevez-Jordan & Ruth Behar; Anne Gilman & David Unger; Ximena Perez-Grobet  & AJO ( Maria Jose de la Huz); Roni Gross, Peter Schell & Nancy Campbell; Mary Heebner; John Blackwell, Tomio Munen, Tessa Tapscott & David Shelton; Wennie Huang & Ed Go; Despo Magoni & over 30 various collaborators; Iviva Olenick, Luke Hoorelbeke & Community Members; Robin Price & Joyce Cutler-Shaw; Felicia Rice, Monica Brown & Jenny Callanaupa Huarhua; Miriam Schaer & Mary Florio; Martin Boykan; Robbin Ami Silverberg & Andras Des; Sarah Stengle & Michael Joseph; and Ewa Zebroswski & Anne Michaels.

LONG LIVE FREEDOM (Viva la libertà)

A film by Roberto Andò
Cast: Toni Servillo, Valerio Mastandrea, Valeria Bruni Tedeschi

Italy | 2013 | 94 min. | Comedy, Drama | Not Rated
Italian with English subtitles

In this elegant and chilling story about world politics, the great Toni Servillo defies expectations playing two roles, imbuing each character with brilliant nuance and astonishing attention to detail. In the first, he personifies political failure in the role of the disgraced ideologue and party leader, Enrico Oliveri. In the second, he embodies the shrewd genius of a madman as Oliveri’s unhinged twin brother who seizes control of the nation amidst the void of his brother’s disappearance. As the national election approaches, Enrico Oliveri has plummeted in the polls and his supporters and adversaries alike begin to acknowledge his impending downfall. Unwilling to face the failure of his party and his nation, Oliveri vanishes into the night. The party leadership tries to hedge for time by concealing Oliveri’s disappearance with a series of acrobatic sidesteps. In a desperate move, right hand man Andrea Bottini seeks out Oliveri’s look-alike twin brother, Giovanni Ernani, a prolific author and philosopher who is freshly released from an insane asylum. Slowly and steadily, Giovanni insinuates himself into his brother’s public persona, impersonating Oliveri’s every tick and mannerism exquisitely – yet slightly imperfectly. Giovanni quickly surpasses his brother’s political prowess with an eerie talent for rallying the masses through fearless and heroic speeches. As Andò shifts between the failure of the sincere intellectual and the heroics of a madman, he probes the driving forces behind our contemporary global political reality leaving behind a rich web of questions in this unpredictable and provocative thriller.

A film by Mariana Rondón

Venezuela, Perú, Germany | 2013 | 93 min. | Drama | Unrated
Spanish with English subtitles

In Pelo Malo, Junior (Samuel Lange Zambrano) is a nine-year-old boy who has stubbornly curly hair, or Bad Hair. He wants to have it straightened for his yearbook picture, like a fashionable pop singer with long, ironed hair. This puts him at odds with his mother Marta, a young, unemployed widow. Junior, Marta, and his baby brother live in a large multi-family building. Overwhelmed by what it takes to survive in the chaotic city of Caracas, Marta finds it increasingly difficult to tolerate Junior's fixation with his looks. The more Junior tries to look sharp and make his mother love him, the more she rejects him. His paternal grandmother, a witness to this rejection, asks Marta to give her the boy so that he can look after her. Marta refuses and tries to correct her son's obsession by "setting an example," a cruel moment which was meant to be a lesson. Junior finds himself cornered, face to face with a painful decision.

THE CIRCLE (Der kreis)

A film by Stefan Haupt
Cast: Babett Arens, Aaron Hitz, Marianne Sägebrecht

Switzerland | 2014 | 102 min. | Drama, Gay and Lesbian| Not Rated
German with English subtitles

Zürich in the mid 50′s: The young shy teacher Ernst Ostertag (Matthias Hungerbühler) becomes a member of the gay organization DER KREIS (The Circle) whose publication unites the fragile yet vibrant post World War II gay community in Switzerland. There he gets to know cabaret singer and female impersonator Röbi Rapp (Sven Schelker) and immediately falls head over heels in love with him. Ernst finds himself torn between his bourgeois existence and acceptance of his homosexuality, for Röbi it is about his first serious love relationship. A relationship which proves to last a lifetime. The Circle features a unique blend of narrative and documentary formats with the modern day protagonists commenting on the scripted sequences of the film. The film deftly charts the increasing repression against homosexuals in Zurich as the two young and very different men fight for their love and together with their friends for the rights of gays. Fittingly, in 2003, Ernst and Röbi made history when, both 73 years old at the time, they became the first legally married same-sex couple in Switzerland.

Livre d’Artiste d’Aujourd’hui: Interdisciplinary Collaborations 
November 17, 2014 - March 20, 2015

Centre Gallery

The exhibition has been organized by Alexander Campos, Executive Director of the Center for Book Arts, and Maddy Rosenberg.

What is a livre d’artiste? It was traditionally put together by a publisher asking and artist and writer (who often didn’t know each other) to create work for a publication.  The collaboration was usually an arranged one and the production value was usually of high quality produced in a limited run.

For this exhibition however, the curators are interested to see how artists, writers, performers have found ways to self-produce publications, augmenting the collaborative spirit embedded in the livre d’ artiste concept.

The exhibition will present work of a true collaboration, not one artists responding to a finished work, but instead one in which both contributors have equal weight.

Collaborations being featured include: Rosaire Appel & Myrna Burks; Samanta Batra-Mehta & Sweta Srivastava Vikram; Rosemarie Chiarlone, Susan Weiner, Elaine Wright & Alfredo Useche; Beatrice Coron & Elizabeth DeSole; Martin Demaine, Erik Demaine & Michael Benson; Rolando Estevez-Jordan & Ruth Behar; Anne Gilman & David Unger; Ximena Perez-Grobet  & AJO ( Maria Jose de la Huz); Roni Gross, Peter Schell & Nancy Campbell; Mary Heebner; John Blackwell, Tomio Munen, Tessa Tapscott & David Shelton; Wennie Huang & Ed Go; Despo Magoni & over 30 various collaborators; Iviva Olenick, Luke Hoorelbeke & Community Members; Robin Price & Joyce Cutler-Shaw; Felicia Rice, Monica Brown & Jenny Callanaupa Huarhua; Miriam Schaer & Mary Florio; Martin Boykan; Robbin Ami Silverberg & Andras Des; Sarah Stengle & Michael Joseph; and Ewa Zebroswski & Anne Michaels.

A professional diver, Petter, obsessed with reaching the bottom of the Norwegian Sea has the discipline, strength and courage to take on the world's most dangerous mission.

Gradually he realizes that he is in way over his head and that his life is at stake.

THE CIRCLE (Der kreis)

A film by Stefan Haupt
Cast: Babett Arens, Aaron Hitz, Marianne Sägebrecht

Switzerland | 2014 | 102 min. | Drama, Gay and Lesbian| Not Rated
German with English subtitles

Zürich in the mid 50′s: The young shy teacher Ernst Ostertag (Matthias Hungerbühler) becomes a member of the gay organization DER KREIS (The Circle) whose publication unites the fragile yet vibrant post World War II gay community in Switzerland. There he gets to know cabaret singer and female impersonator Röbi Rapp (Sven Schelker) and immediately falls head over heels in love with him. Ernst finds himself torn between his bourgeois existence and acceptance of his homosexuality, for Röbi it is about his first serious love relationship. A relationship which proves to last a lifetime. The Circle features a unique blend of narrative and documentary formats with the modern day protagonists commenting on the scripted sequences of the film. The film deftly charts the increasing repression against homosexuals in Zurich as the two young and very different men fight for their love and together with their friends for the rights of gays. Fittingly, in 2003, Ernst and Röbi made history when, both 73 years old at the time, they became the first legally married same-sex couple in Switzerland.

Zürich in the mid 50′s: The young shy teacher Ernst Ostertag (Matthias Hungerbühler) becomes a member of the gay organization DER KREIS (The Circle) whose publication unites the fragile yet vibrant post World War II gay community in Switzerland. There he gets to know cabaret singer and female impersonator Röbi Rapp (Sven Schelker) and immediately falls head over heels in love with him. Ernst finds himself torn between his bourgeois existence and acceptance of his homosexuality, for Röbi it is about his first serious love relationship. A relationship which proves to last a lifetime. The Circle features a unique blend of narrative and documentary formats with the modern day protagonists commenting on the scripted sequences of the film. The film deftly charts the increasing repression against homosexuals in Zurich as the two young and very different men fight for their love and together with their friends for the rights of gays. Fittingly, in 2003, Ernst and Röbi made history when, both 73 years old at the time, they became the first legally married same-sex couple in Switzerland.

Livre d’Artiste d’Aujourd’hui: Interdisciplinary Collaborations 
November 17, 2014 - March 20, 2015

Centre Gallery

The exhibition has been organized by Alexander Campos, Executive Director of the Center for Book Arts, and Maddy Rosenberg.

What is a livre d’artiste? It was traditionally put together by a publisher asking and artist and writer (who often didn’t know each other) to create work for a publication.  The collaboration was usually an arranged one and the production value was usually of high quality produced in a limited run.

For this exhibition however, the curators are interested to see how artists, writers, performers have found ways to self-produce publications, augmenting the collaborative spirit embedded in the livre d’ artiste concept.

The exhibition will present work of a true collaboration, not one artists responding to a finished work, but instead one in which both contributors have equal weight.

Collaborations being featured include: Rosaire Appel & Myrna Burks; Samanta Batra-Mehta & Sweta Srivastava Vikram; Rosemarie Chiarlone, Susan Weiner, Elaine Wright & Alfredo Useche; Beatrice Coron & Elizabeth DeSole; Martin Demaine, Erik Demaine & Michael Benson; Rolando Estevez-Jordan & Ruth Behar; Anne Gilman & David Unger; Ximena Perez-Grobet  & AJO ( Maria Jose de la Huz); Roni Gross, Peter Schell & Nancy Campbell; Mary Heebner; John Blackwell, Tomio Munen, Tessa Tapscott & David Shelton; Wennie Huang & Ed Go; Despo Magoni & over 30 various collaborators; Iviva Olenick, Luke Hoorelbeke & Community Members; Robin Price & Joyce Cutler-Shaw; Felicia Rice, Monica Brown & Jenny Callanaupa Huarhua; Miriam Schaer & Mary Florio; Martin Boykan; Robbin Ami Silverberg & Andras Des; Sarah Stengle & Michael Joseph; and Ewa Zebroswski & Anne Michaels.

Livre d’Artiste d’Aujourd’hui: Interdisciplinary Collaborations 
November 17, 2014 - March 20, 2015

Centre Gallery

The exhibition has been organized by Alexander Campos, Executive Director of the Center for Book Arts, and Maddy Rosenberg.

What is a livre d’artiste? It was traditionally put together by a publisher asking and artist and writer (who often didn’t know each other) to create work for a publication.  The collaboration was usually an arranged one and the production value was usually of high quality produced in a limited run.

For this exhibition however, the curators are interested to see how artists, writers, performers have found ways to self-produce publications, augmenting the collaborative spirit embedded in the livre d’ artiste concept.

The exhibition will present work of a true collaboration, not one artists responding to a finished work, but instead one in which both contributors have equal weight.

Collaborations being featured include: Rosaire Appel & Myrna Burks; Samanta Batra-Mehta & Sweta Srivastava Vikram; Rosemarie Chiarlone, Susan Weiner, Elaine Wright & Alfredo Useche; Beatrice Coron & Elizabeth DeSole; Martin Demaine, Erik Demaine & Michael Benson; Rolando Estevez-Jordan & Ruth Behar; Anne Gilman & David Unger; Ximena Perez-Grobet  & AJO ( Maria Jose de la Huz); Roni Gross, Peter Schell & Nancy Campbell; Mary Heebner; John Blackwell, Tomio Munen, Tessa Tapscott & David Shelton; Wennie Huang & Ed Go; Despo Magoni & over 30 various collaborators; Iviva Olenick, Luke Hoorelbeke & Community Members; Robin Price & Joyce Cutler-Shaw; Felicia Rice, Monica Brown & Jenny Callanaupa Huarhua; Miriam Schaer & Mary Florio; Martin Boykan; Robbin Ami Silverberg & Andras Des; Sarah Stengle & Michael Joseph; and Ewa Zebroswski & Anne Michaels.

Directed by Pablo Larraín

Chile | 2012 | 35 mm | 118 min | Drama | Rated R
Spanish with English subtitles

In 1988, Chilean military dictator Augusto Pinochet, due to international pressure, is forced to call a plebiscite on his presidency. The country will vote YES or NO to Pinochet extending his rule for another eight years. Opposition leaders for the NO persuade a brash young advertising executive, Rene Saavedra (Gael Garcia Bernal), to spearhead their campaign. Against all odds, with scant resources and under scrutiny by the despot's minions, Saavedra and his team devise an audacious plan to win the election and set Chile free.

After their SS officer father and mother are taken by the victorious Allies at the end of World War II, five German children undertake a dramatic journey that exposes them to the reality and consequences of their parents' actions. Led by the eldest sibling, 14-year old Lore (striking newcomer Saskia Rosendahl), they set out on a harrowing exodus across a devastated country to reach their grandmother in the north. After meeting the charismatic, mysterious young refugee Thomas, Lore soon finds her world devastated by feelings of both hatred and desire as she must learn to trust the one person she has always been taught to hate in order to survive. Lush cinematography and an evocative, haunting mood infuse this unconventional take on the Holocaust legacy with unforgettable impact.

Master Kariostami at full throttle, again

Directed by Abbas Kiarostami
Starring Tadashi Okuno, Rin Takanashi, Ryo Kase, Denden
Japan, France | 2012 | 109 min | Drama | Not Rated
Japanese with English subtitles

Fresh from of the triumph of his Tuscany-set Certified Copy, master filmmaker Abbas Kiarostami travels even further afield from his native Iran for this mysteriously beautiful romantic drama filmed entirely in Japan. Like Someone in Love revolves around the brief encounter between an elderly professor (Tadashi Okuno) and a sociology student (Rin Takanashi) who moonlights as a high-end escort. Dispatched to the old man by her boss—one of the professor’s former students—the young woman finds her latest client less interested in sex than in cooking her soup, and playing old Ella Fitzgerald’s records (like the one that gives the film its allusive title). Eventually, night gives way to day and a tense standoff with the student’s insanely jealous boyfriend (Ryō Kase); but as usual in Kiarostami, nothing is quite as it appears on the surface. Are these characters—who conjure in one another the specters of regret and roads not taken—meeting by chance, or is it fate? Is this love or merely something like it?

"Exquisitely made… An enchanting game of misfired passions and mistaken identities." - Jordan Mintzer, The Hollywood Reporter

“Abbas Kiarostami’s Like Someone in Love is an outstanding example of ‘mise-en-scene’, an almost forgotten art in cinematography that has gradually been replaced by different aesthetic values. Here, one is reminded of the masterful skill of Preminger, at the height of his career, but Like Someone In Love is not just a show of masterful craftsmanship. The film is concrete, physical and profoundly enigmatic.” –
Pierre Rissient, artistic advisor for Cannes Film Festival

“Masterfully beguiling, Like Someone in Love is a little gem of a film that explores how relationships and roles change depending on the needs, circumstances and desires of the people involved.” - Will McCord, Paste Magazine

Master Kariostami at full throttle, again

Directed by Abbas Kiarostami
Starring Tadashi Okuno, Rin Takanashi, Ryo Kase, Denden
Japan, France | 2012 | 109 min | Drama | Not Rated
Japanese with English subtitles

Fresh from of the triumph of his Tuscany-set Certified Copy, master filmmaker Abbas Kiarostami travels even further afield from his native Iran for this mysteriously beautiful romantic drama filmed entirely in Japan. Like Someone in Love revolves around the brief encounter between an elderly professor (Tadashi Okuno) and a sociology student (Rin Takanashi) who moonlights as a high-end escort. Dispatched to the old man by her boss—one of the professor’s former students—the young woman finds her latest client less interested in sex than in cooking her soup, and playing old Ella Fitzgerald’s records (like the one that gives the film its allusive title). Eventually, night gives way to day and a tense standoff with the student’s insanely jealous boyfriend (Ryō Kase); but as usual in Kiarostami, nothing is quite as it appears on the surface. Are these characters—who conjure in one another the specters of regret and roads not taken—meeting by chance, or is it fate? Is this love or merely something like it?

"Exquisitely made… An enchanting game of misfired passions and mistaken identities." - Jordan Mintzer, The Hollywood Reporter

“Abbas Kiarostami’s Like Someone in Love is an outstanding example of ‘mise-en-scene’, an almost forgotten art in cinematography that has gradually been replaced by different aesthetic values. Here, one is reminded of the masterful skill of Preminger, at the height of his career, but Like Someone In Love is not just a show of masterful craftsmanship. The film is concrete, physical and profoundly enigmatic.” –

“Masterfully beguiling, Like Someone in Love is a little gem of a film that explores how relationships and roles change depending on the needs, circumstances and desires of the people involved.” - Will McCord, Paste Magazine

After their SS officer father and mother are taken by the victorious Allies at the end of World War II, five German children undertake a dramatic journey that exposes them to the reality and consequences of their parents' actions. Led by the eldest sibling, 14-year old Lore (striking newcomer Saskia Rosendahl), they set out on a harrowing exodus across a devastated country to reach their grandmother in the north. After meeting the charismatic, mysterious young refugee Thomas, Lore soon finds her world devastated by feelings of both hatred and desire as she must learn to trust the one person she has always been taught to hate in order to survive. Lush cinematography and an evocative, haunting mood infuse this unconventional take on the Holocaust legacy with unforgettable impact.

Canada | 2012 | Digital | 90min | Drama, History | Not Rated
French, Lingala with English subtitles

Montreal-based filmmaker Kim Nguyen paints a poignant and harrowing portrait of Komona, a 14-year-old girl (wonderfully played by nonprofessional actress Rachel Mwanza) who has been kidnapped from her African village by rebels to become a child soldier. She escapes from the camp with an older albino soldier and experiences for the very first time the joys of a peaceful and loving life, but a fresh tragedy will force her to confront and fight the ghosts haunting her mind. Although inspired by a real story that took place in Burma, Nguyen decided to film War Witch in the Democratic Republic of the Congo without giving a specific location to the plot. He worked on the film for 10 years, watching and catching children's points of view with his camera and mixing in tightly edited flashbacks in which the spirits of human beings appear with an ultra-realistic and violent storyline. But War Witch is also a poignant and impossible love story filled with magic, picturesque images, and even light moments like the powerful visit to an albino camp or the chasing of a white rooster.

The Writer’s Journey: How the Movies Can Make Us Better Writers with Nicholas Garnett (Multi-Day Event)
All Day

Wolfson Campus

Good stories don’t just happen, they’re crafted. We’ll look at the structure

The complete version, re-mastered by the director

Directed by Volker Schlöndorff
Starring David Bennent, Mario Adorf, Angela Winkler, Daniel Olbrychski, Andréa Ferréol, Charles Aznavour

Danzig, 1924. Oskar Matzerath is born with an intellect beyond his infancy. As he witnesses the hypocrisy of adulthood and society, he rejects both, and, at his third birthday, refuses to grow older. Caught in a state of perpetual childhood, Oskar lashes out with piercing screams and frantic poundings on his tin drum, while the unheeding world marches towards the madness and folly of WWII. Honored with the Palme d’Or at the Cannes Film Festival and the Academy Award for Best Foreign Language Film, the current Director’s Cut reincorporates sequences and characters that novelist Günter Grass lobbied for - the Rasputin orgy and the crazed Treblinka survivor-disinfector Fajngold - from twenty-one minutes trimmed to the bin thirty years ago. The result is a visionary adaptation of Günter Grass’s acclaimed novel, an unforgettable fantasia of surreal imagery, striking eroticism, and unflinching satire.

Screenplay by Jean-Claude Carrière, Franz Seitz and Volker Schlöndorff, based on the novel by
Günter Grass

“One of cinema's greatest coming of age stories…” - Christopher Null, Filmcritic.com

“It stands with Rainer Werner Fassbinder's The Marriage of Maria Braun as one of the finest German films of the 1970s.” - Frederic and Mary Ann Brussat, Spirituality & Practice

“Volker Schlöndorff is perhaps the most profound of the young German directors who rose in the 1970s, and his brilliant movie is artistically fascinating.” - Glenn Erickson, Film Savant

“His visual translation of Grass’ mix of stark realism and comic fantasy is truly brilliant. “ – Tim Sheridan, Paste Magazine

“One of the ways in which the film is able to seem un-intimidated by the reputation of its source (Grass won a Nobel Prize in Literature; the film got a Best Foreign-Language Oscar®) stems from Schlondorff's decision to pitch it closer to Rabelais than Goethe as it visits the strife that rained down on Danzig (currently Gdansk, Poland),” - Jay Carr, Turner Classic Movies

In 1988, Chilean military dictator Augusto Pinochet, due to international pressure, is forced to call a plebiscite on his presidency. The country will vote YES or NO to Pinochet extending his rule for another eight years. Opposition leaders for the NO persuade a brash young advertising executive, Rene Saavedra (Gael Garcia Bernal), to spearhead their campaign.

Directed by Kim Nguyen
Starring Rachel Mwanza, Serge Kanyinda, Alain Lino, Eli Bastien

Canada | 2012 | Digital | 90min | Drama, History | Not Rated
French, Lingala with English subtitles

Montreal-based filmmaker Kim Nguyen paints a poignant and harrowing portrait of Komona, a 14-year-old girl (wonderfully played by nonprofessional actress Rachel Mwanza) who has been kidnapped from her African village by rebels to become a child soldier. She escapes from the camp with an older albino soldier and experiences for the very first time the joys of a peaceful and loving life, but a fresh tragedy will force her to confront and fight the ghosts haunting her mind. Although inspired by a real story that took place in Burma, Nguyen decided to film War Witch in the Democratic Republic of the Congo without giving a specific location to the plot. He worked on the film for 10 years, watching and catching children's points of view with his camera and mixing in tightly edited flashbacks in which the spirits of human beings appear with an ultra-realistic and violent storyline. But War Witch is also a poignant and impossible love story filled with magic, picturesque images, and even light moments like the powerful visit to an albino camp or the chasing of a white rooster.

"A moving and emotional powerhouse…War Witch packs a punch.” – Movieline

“In the middle of War Witch, there blooms a kind of love story that introduces a more rollicking side of African culture.” - Jay Stone, Postmedia News

“Canadian-based writer Kim Nguyen, little known beyond fantasy fest circles, handles the material, displaying a maturity, panache and emotional marksmanship that will elevate his reputation several notches.” – Leslie Felperin, Variety

“Rachel Mwanza, an acting newcomer discovered on the streets of Kinshasa, guides the film naturally. Much of Nicolas Bolduc's observant cinematography focuses on the emotions subtly registered on her face. Mwanza faces the difficult task -- and rises to the challenge -- of at once showing feelings and smothering them.” - Beth Hanna, Thompson on Hollywood!

After their SS officer father and mother are taken by the victorious Allies at the end of World War II, five German children undertake a dramatic journey that exposes them to the reality and consequences of their parents' actions. Led by the eldest sibling, 14-year old Lore (striking newcomer Saskia Rosendahl), they set out on a harrowing exodus across a devastated country to reach their grandmother in the north. After meeting the charismatic, mysterious young refugee Thomas, Lore soon finds her world devastated by feelings of both hatred and desire as she must learn to trust the one person she has always been taught to hate in order to survive. Lush cinematography and an evocative, haunting mood infuse this unconventional take on the Holocaust legacy with unforgettable impact.

The Writer’s Journey: How the Movies Can Make Us Better Writers with Nicholas Garnett (Multi-Day Event)

with the acclaimed and influential book The Writer’s Journey: Mythic Structure
for Writers as our guide. Based on those principles, you’ll develop, share and
critique your own story summary and writing. This course is designed for any
level or ability, any genre and any place in the writing process.
