Kite & Devin Ronneberg: Fever Dream

April 21—August 21, 2022

Museum Admission

Fever Dream is an interactive multimedia installation by Kite, an Oglala Lakota performance artist, visual artist, and composer, and Devin Ronneberg, a multidisciplinary artist of Kanaka Maoli/Okinawan descent working primarily in sculpture, sound, image-making, and computational media. The work brings together their mutual interests in the implications of emergent technologies and artificial intelligence, information control and collection, Indigenous ontologies, and bodily interfaces. In response to the audience’s proximity in the gallery, a large projection flips between channels algorithmically tuned in to scraped footage of conspiracy theories, paranormal and extraterrestrial sightings, and recent news broadcasts. The work plumbs the depths of the settler-colonial psyche and the ways in which settler conspiracies are often founded on a denial of Indigenous agency, such as the belief that “ancient aliens” are responsible for the building of Indigenous earthworks and monuments.

Curious Vessels: The Rosenfield Collection

On View March 12—October 23, 2022

Louise Rosenfield is among the most avid pottery collectors in the United States. Over the past thirty years, she has amassed a collection of more than 4,000 pieces of functional pottery from artists across the globe. Her ambition for her collection has always been clear—instead of donating work to a museum, she would rather donate it to a restaurant, where patrons could enjoy the work as originally intended.

Curious Vessels is a celebration of both Rosenfield’s eclectic taste and her unrivaled generosity. Museum visitors will be able to touch many of the pieces in this exhibition while watching videos of Rosenfield and notable potters from the collection pointing out details of the work. After viewing the exhibition, viewers are invited to become participants and collaborators by eating a meal in the Everson’s innovative new café, Louise, which is entirely stocked with functional vessels from the Rosenfield Collection.

Helene Starr: Organic Unfolding

On view August 13—September 25, 2022

Over the past four decades, artist Helene Starr has built a significant body of work around the act of draping clay slabs into soft crenelated forms that evoke fiber, flesh, and the natural world. Organic Unfolding marks a return to her work that utilizes curving steel forms that let her array her forms in lyrical three-dimensional compositions.

Starr is one of the artists selected as part of the CNY Artist Initiative, a competitive program that highlights the multi-faceted talents of CNY artists.

This project is made possible, in part, with funding from The Community Partnership of Tompkins County.

Sekou Cooke: 15-81 Opens to the Public

On View April 30–August 21, 2022

15-81 presents architect and urban designer Sekou Cooke’s project We Outchea: Hip-Hop Fabrications and Public Space alongside documents relating to the 15th Ward in Syracuse, New York. Commissioned by the Museum of Modern Art in 2021 as part of their exhibition Reconstructions: Architecture and Blackness in America, We Outchea focuses on the legacy of placement and displacement of Black residents in Syracuse and considers various events in the city’s history—the razing of the historic 15th Ward, the building of multiple public housing projects, and the construction of Interstate-81—while simultaneously critiquing recent proposals to replace low-income communities with mixed-income housing. By contextualizing the We Outchea project with photographs and ephemera that tell the story of the once vibrant 15th Ward, Cooke points to a post I-81 Syracuse future of entrepreneurship and innovation.

WoW! at the Everson

Thursday, August 18, Begins at Dusk

Devised by Karin Coonrod in 2020, WoW! is the new hybrid event bringing living poets and film together outdoors. A drive-in movie meets poetry slam. In response to the host of performance cancellations in 2020, Coonrod and Compagnia de’ Colombari turned her original production of “More or Less I Am” into seven short films.

Whitman is the iconic New York poet whose radical poem “Song of Myself” shouts out with joy the inclusivity of democracy in the Americas. Recorded over three weeks, with over 50 performers from all over the world, the films embody Whitman’s words. In collaboration with institutional partners and living poets across the globe, WoW! activates us as a community in a collective celebration of freedom.

The one-hour event begins at dusk and will be screened on the façade of the Everson. Following each film, a local poet will stand and “talk back to Whitman” in their own words, challenging or quarreling with him, thus weaving together film and live recitation. There will be opportunities for spoken word artists to speak and land acknowledgments to be made. Local food vendors will be present, and a post-performance convening will encourage conversation amongst audience, poets, and performers.

About Colombari:

Compagnia de’ Colombari founded and led by Karin Coonrod is an international collective of performing artists based in New York City, generating theater in surprising places. Colombari is founded on the twin principles that the magic of great theater can happen anywhere and be made accessible to everyone.
