The Fertile Ground, Home of the Seneca

Get your ticket now for “The Fertile Ground, Home of the Seneca” with Peter Jemison, Seneca artist, educator, advocate, and Historic Site Manager of Ganondagan State Historic Site. Jemison is the first guest in our new speaking series in partnership with the Skä·noñh-Great Law of Peace Center looking at the impact of the Erie Canal on the Haudenosaunee and their foodways as part of our larger Erie Eats Foodways Project. Admission is $10 for the general public and $5 for members of either the Erie Canal Museum or the Onondaga Historical Association. Museum members, please email outreach@eriecanalmuseum.org to receive your discount. When you preregister for this special lecture through the Shop page of our website, you’ll receive an email providing access to this secure event. You can register here: https://eriecanalmuseum.org/store/product/virtual-discussion-peter-jemison/

Jemison will discuss the Seneca people and their ancestral homeland in Western New York, as well as the issue of food sovereignty. In particular, Jemison will reflect on the Iroquois White Corn Project, an effort at Ganondagan with the goal to “restore the farming, consumption, and distribution of traditional Iroquois White Corn to Native American communities and to offer Iroquois White Corn products to the community at large”

Peter Jemison has served as Historic Site Manager at Ganondagan since 1985, co-edited the book Treaty of Canandaigua 1794: 200 Years of Treaty Relations between the Iroquois Confederacy and the United States, produced the multi-award winning “Iroquois Creation Story” film, and has produced art that has been acclaimed and exhibited all over the world, among many other accomplishments.

Jemison’s roles and responsibilities also include representing the Seneca Nation of Indians on the Native American Graves Protection and Repatriation Act (NAGPRA) as well as a past Indian Tribe/Native Hawaiian Representative of the Federal Advisory Council on Historic Preservation (ACHP). A member of the Heron Clan of the Seneca Nation, Jemison’s work is rooted in the framework of Native American art.

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.

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

Light Work’s Urban Video Project presents What Happened, 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.

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.

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.

Learning Lab at Redhouse Arts Center

Redhouse’s “Learning Lab” is a new program that has been created to help meet the needs of working parents as many schools move forward with Hybrid and Online Learning models. The “Learning Lab” was specifically developed to support students in grades 3-8 who are in need of daily learning support, access to technology, and other in-person instructional accommodations in order to succeed this coming school year. "Learning Lab" runs weekly, Monday – Friday, 8am-5pm, for the entire school year. Full school calendar available at http://www.theredhouse.org/redhouse-learning-lab/.
