Ria Brodell: Devotion disrupts traditional narratives and offers multifaceted ways in which to experience the concept of devotion. While Brodell’s art stems from personal experience, the works in this exhibition allow for a nuanced rumination on gender and sexuality from both historical and contemporary contexts.

The exhibition includes works from the artist’s series, Butch Heroes and The Handsome & The HolyButch Heroes presents highly detailed paintings of historical subjects who challenged gender norms. The paintings incorporate the structure of Catholic prayer cards; the artist’s aesthetic approach is deeply informed by a Catholic upbringing. These meticulous paintings are accompanied by scholarly documentation of the subjects portrayed. In explaining the motivations of an earlier series, The Handsome & The Holy, the artist writes, “I am interested in the play between queer desire and the construction of gender identity as seen alongside my religious upbringing. This series of work attempts to catalog the influential, yet seemingly paradoxical, figures in my personal history.”

Featuring new and recent work by Brodell, this exhibition recontextualizes devotional imagery in the permanent collection of the Cornell Fine Arts Museum. Most significantly, Ria Brodell: Devotion allows for complex readings of gender in historic terms and through a religious framework. This exhibition, the artist’s first solo presentation at a museum, is accompanied by a brochure featuring an interview with the artist.

David Neiwert – “The New Age of Eliminationism in America: How the Internet Feeds Radicalization and Dehumanization”

By : Alex Storer
Comments: 0

Share this story:

The politics of elimination – embodied in nativism, white supremacism, and similar authoritarian ideologies –  have long been part of the American political fabric, but in recent years have come bubbling forward in the wave of hate-crime incidents associated with the 2016 election, as well as mass killings such as those in Charleston, S.C., and at the Pulse nightclub in Orlando. Historically fueled by dehumanizing rhetoric and belief systems, eliminationism has become a common theme in rising right-wing ideologies around the globe, spread especially through the phenomenon of online radicalization, both among Islamist radicals and alt-right white nationalists. Neiwert’s talk will explore this history, and suggest ways of countering the spread of this kind of hate.

Show time: 8 p.m.
Tickets start at $45.00
Walt Disney Theater

Hailing from Utah, The Piano Guys became an Internet sensation by way of their immensely successful series of strikingly original self-made music videos. They’ve made over 35 since joining forces in early 2011, including their hit video, an innovative 10-handed version of One Direction’s “What Makes You Beautiful.” But it’s the Guys’ highly original blend of classical music with pop that has really been the cause of an Internet phenomenon that brought them to their major label self-titled debut album released on Sony Music Masterworks in 2012. This release was followed by their sophomore album, The Piano Guys 2, then A Family Christmas, Wonders, and recently released The Piano Guys Live! album.
