Exhibit the absence of the origin of its likeness 2016-12-07 All Day
Description

Has this photograph been digitally altered? Did the scene it show actually occur? Since the photograph’s invention, people have been enamored by the image’s resemblance to its subject. But changes in the field of photography like digital imaging and editing have brought this into question. In the absence of the origin of its likeness, artists Laura Dutton and Arnold Koroshegyi examine these issues, using both analogue and digital technologies, to destabilize traditional readings and open up new avenues for making and looking at photographs. 
 
the absence of the origin of its likeness opens Friday, November 4 at 7:30 p.m. at Open Space. The exhibition runs until Saturday, December 10. A panel discussion will be held on Saturday, November 5 from 1:30 p.m. to 3:30 p.m. The speakers include Trudi Lynn Smith, Cedric Bomford, Brandon Poole, Arnold Koroshegyi, and Laura Dutton, with Lynda Gammon as the moderator. 
 
Deliberately drawing attention to the condition of the photograph’s making, Dutton and Koroshegyi’s works both speak to our denaturalized world and the artists’ urge to represent the unrepresentable. Dutton’s work starts with photographs of urbanscapes and Koroshegyi’s work begins with artificial flowers; however, through the formal, conceptual, and material possibilities of photography the end result is a form of abstraction that opens up multiple meanings.

Film THINGS TO COME / L'AVENIR 2016-12-07 19:00:00
Description

THINGS TO COME  /  L’AVENIR

Director: Mia Hansen-Løve

France, 2016, 102 min; French with subttiles

The twists and turns of fate and the ways in which individuals react to them constitute the central preoccupations of Mia Hansen-Løve’s cinema. ‘Things to Come’ centers on the emotional tribulations of a woman in late middle-age. Isabelle Huppert plays Nathalie, a philosophy teacher at a Parisian high school. Newly divorced, newly orphaned, and with her two children grown-up and out of the house, Nathalie finds herself alone and on uncertain ground for the first time in 25 years. It’s difficult to imagine anyone realizing Nathalie as consummately as Huppert, who, even by her exceptionally high standards, pulls off a superlative performance. –The Film Stage

“A warm, funny and profoundly sensitive portrait of letting go.” --IndieWire
