Pathway of Resistance: The Erie Canal and the Abolition Movement

Join the Erie Canal Museum on Thursday, February 25th at 12 p.m. for its first Lunchtime Lecture of the year with a look at the abolition movement along the Erie Canal based on our well received “Pathways of Resistance” walking tour. In this virtual presentation, Museum Educator Derrick Pratt will discuss the institution of slavery in New York state itself, economic opportunities found along the newly constructed Canal by African Americans, how the Canal played an important role in the abolition movements development, and what role the canal may have played in the Underground Railroad. Due to the COVID-19 crisis, the program will be streamed live on the Museum’s Facebook page as well as released on its YouTube channel. Please consider making a $5 donation, as is typical of all Lunchtime Lectures. Everyone who donates will receive a personal link to watch the lecture live on Zoom and participate in a Q&A session.

What Happened: Luis Arnias, Simon Liu, and Zhou Tao Exhibition

Light Work’s Urban Video Project presents , a three-person exhibition featuring the work of filmmakers Luis Arnias, Simon Liu, and Zhou Tao. The installation will be on view from February 4 thru April 3, 2021, at UVP’s outdoor projection site on the north facade of the Everson Museum of Art at 401 Harrison Street, Thursday through Saturday, from dusk until 11pm. What Happened takes us on a tour of ambiguous scenes where we find ourselves disoriented, unsure where and when we are, whether we find ourselves before, after, or during an indeterminate event. These works bear the unmistakable trace of the volatile forces shaping our current moment: protest, pandemic, state brutality, racialized violence, and ecological disaster. But this isn’t the news. As in life, these forces confront us in mostly oblique ways, as a nagging anxiety attaching to fragments torn from context and transforming them into a thousand strange and fascinating portents: a lost face mask in the gutter, an uprooted tree, an endlessly spinning loading icon, a cheerful pop song’s hollow echo, a flash that may or may not be fireworks.

Are these terrains mundane or extraordinary? Fact or fiction? Zones of autonomy or oppression? Recovery or impending disaster?

Did it already happen? Will it happen soon? Is it happening now?

The resulting show is a meditation on living through “interesting” times.

In conjunction with the exhibition, UVP will host a FREE live-streamed screening of the What Happened program with additional works, followed by a Q&A with the filmmakers on Thursday, March 4, at 6:30pm. The link will go live on UVP’s website Saturday, March 4, at 6:30 pm EST.

BE SAFE: MASK UP AND SOCIAL DISTANCE— Exhibition patrons visiting the Everson Plaza must maintain a social distance of at least 6 feet between individuals at all times, except for groups visiting from the same household. We encourage everyone to wear face masks to safeguard the public health and as an extension of our commitment to help stop the spread of COVID-19. UVP limits attendance at all screenings to 20 people to adhere to Onondaga County’s latest social distancing guidelines.

The Floating Bridge: Postmodern and Contemporary Japanese Ceramics

The Everson began collecting contemporary Japanese ceramics in earnest in the mid 1970s, an experimental period when artists were applying geometric forms and conceptual strategies to traditional materials and forms. The exhibition highlights this under-recognized generation of artists who are now credited with laying the groundwork for today’s contemporary ceramic movement in Japan.

Lacey McKinney: Reconfiguration

November 14, 2020 – February 28, 2021

Using portraiture as her point of departure, Lacey McKinney examines themes of identity and embodiment through the human face and figure. Painting with acrylic and oil, McKinney merges multiple faces into one composition—blurring together moments in time. Calling attention to the fallacy that humans maintain a singular fixed or identity and challenging the history of genre portraiture, McKinney questions how much information can be gleaned from a single portrait.
