Arts and EntertainmentBe prepared to be surprised, provoked, and delighted with the art and the entertainment that has been curated for this year’s conference. Thanks to Chair Jane M. Saks and the 2013 Arts Task Force, art is infused throughout the conference. Here’s a taste of what’s ahead:
Sunday, April 7, 6:30–7:30 p.m. at Art Institute EventFounded in 1990, Redmoon transforms streets, stages, and architectural landmarks, bridging international, economic, cultural, and generational boundaries with a unique brand of Spectacle: a public art form that is equal parts pageantry, gadgetry, puppetry, robust physical performance, and visual art.
Sunday, April 7, 7:30–7:50 p.m. at Art Institute EventBlack Ensemble Theater was founded in 1976 by actress, producer, and playwright Jackie Taylor, and has grown from a small community arts organization to a vibrant nationally and internationally renowned arts institution. A leader and innovator in the African-American and mainstream arts communities, Black Ensemble Theater is recognized as one of the most diverse theaters in the country, producing excellent musical theater.
Throughout the ConferenceThrough sculpture, text, photography, video, sound, and performance, Industry of the Ordinary is dedicated to an exploration and celebration of the customary, the everyday, and the usual. Their emphasis is on challenging pejorative notions of the ordinary and, in doing so, moving beyond the quotidian.
