Disappearing Acts talk/reception with Eric William Carroll

An artist talk/reception with Eric William Carroll will be held in the gallery on Thursday, October 23, 2014, 7-9pm. 

Eric William Carroll is an artist exploring photography in all its forms. By reenacting photography’s cultural and technological history, he aims to reveal the medium’s elementary characteristics and metaphorical potential, as well as our expectations and desires for the art form. “I’m interested in blurring the line between nature and technology. The obsolution of older technologies is what moves the man-made closer to the realm of nature. That’s what attracts me. Essentially, all of this work is about time. I’m interested in how we feel when things don’t last as long as we want them. It’s a strange mixture of nostalgia, sadness and beauty.”
 
Born and raised in the Midwest, Carroll has bounced between New York and San Francisco and currently teaches at Macalester College in St. Paul, Minnesota. His work has been exhibited widely, including the New Orleans Museum of Art, the Camera Club of New York, the Museum of Contemporary Photography, and SF Camerawork. Carroll has participated in residencies with the MacDowell Colony, Rayko Photo Center and the Blacklock Nature Sanctuary, and was the winner of the 2012 Baum Award for Emerging Photographers. He is represented by Highlight Gallery in San Francisco.

"The Beginning of Protest" a public lecture featuring Micah White

Micah White is one of today's most innovative social activists. He will deliver a public lecture at Antioch College titled, “The Beginning of Protest.” Recognizing that the paradigms of contemporary protest are undergoing a period of crisis, White believes that the greatest achievement of Occupy Wall Street is what it teaches us about the nature of social change and the future of peaceful global revolution. We learned, for example, that the dominant theory of revolutionary change is too heavily influenced by materialist analysis. Social change materialism cannot fully account for postmodern spiritual insurrections like May 1968 and ultramodern uprisings like Occupy Wall Street. Nor can it explain pre-modern paradigm shifts like the epiphany of St. Paul and the conversion of Constantine that ushered in the Christianization of Western Civilization.

White is the former editor of Adbusters, the American creator of the Occupy Wall Street meme and the inventor of the innovative debt-activism tactic known as Rolling Jubilee. White has been profiled by The New Yorker, Grist and The San Francisco Chronicle. White is now the founder of Boutique Activist Consultancy.

Foreign Language Film Series: "Les Choristes" (2004)

Les Choristes is a 2004 French drama film directed by Christophe Barratier. Co-written by Barratier and Philippe Lopes-Curval (fr), it is an adaptation of the 1945 film A Cage of Nightingales (La Cage aux rossignols), which in turn was adapted by Noël-Noël and René Wheeler from a story by Wheeler and Georges Chaperot.

The plot involves the widely successful orchestra conductor Pierre Morhange (Jacques Perrin), who returns to France when his mother dies. He reminisces about his childhood inspirations when he and his former classmate Pépinot (Didier Flamand) read the diary of their old music teacher Clément Mathieu (Gérard Jugnot). In 1949, a young Pierre (Jean-Baptiste Maunier) is the badly behaved son of single mother Violette (Marie Bunel). He attends the boarding institution for “difficult” boys, Fond de L'Étang (“Bottom of the Pond”), presided over by strict headmaster Mr Rachin (François Berléand). New teacher Mathieu brightens up the school and assembles a choir, leading to the discovery of Pierre's musical and physical talents and a transformation in the children.

Foreign Language Film Series: "Nana" (2008)

Ai Yazawa's popular manga concerning two young women who couldn't be more different despite sharing the same name comes to the screen in this musical drama starring J-Pop icon Mika Nakashima and actress Aoi Miyazaki. Nana "Hachi" Komatsu (Miyazaki) has traveled with her boyfriend to Tokyo in hopes of starting a new life. Elsewhere in this neon-lit metropolis, ambitious punk rock beauty Nana Osaki (Nakashima) arrives determined to become the next big thing in the nocturnal world of rock & roll. On the surface it would seem that these two girls would have little in common, but as they share their dreams and set out in search of true happiness, the girls who couldn't be more different forge a friendship that will last a lifetime. Kentaro Otani directs a film featuring music by J-Rock megastar Hyde. Jason Buchanan, Rovi
