As meticulously created objects, Mordini's fiberboard</p><p>sculptures are the organic antithesis to this digital paradigm. With dis-member, an</p><p>installation of fragmented body parts and distorted appendages, Mordini explores themes</p><p>of disconnectedness, social hierarchies, and alienation.Min Enghauser: Desert Dwell</p><p>November 4-25, 2011</p><p>Min Enghauser began making photographs as a child; exploring, learning and becoming aware</p><p>through photography. For Enghauser, photographs, and the act of making them are glimpses of</p><p>timeless spirits, of pure and unbiased realities of nature and time. Enghauser's exhibitDesert</p><p>Dwellare all images from the Anza-Borrego Desert where she found that there is a coming</p><p>together of the essence of the inhabitants and the spirit of place. Plant with rock, rock with sky,</p><p>sky with mountain. These inhabitants speak to each other without words and at their core is</p><p>the spirit of the other. Enghauser's photographs are the instruments through which she</p><p>discovers and uncovers the truth of this slowly changing landscape of unity, cohesion, beauty,</p></li><li><p>8/3/2019 bMichael Events This Week 11 November 2011</p><p> 3/43</p><p>mystery and fate.</p><p>________________________________________________________________________________</p><p>First Friday Openingsare a collaborative effort to strengthen arts and culture in the</p><p>beautiful, multi-cultural neighborhood that is Dupont Circle.

For ten days, visiting artists from Germany will work together with Arlington-area artists to</p><p>create a site-specific installation within Artisphere. Their work spaces will be open to the public and will serve as a</p><p>visual documentation of the exchange. The first part of the exchange took place in April 2011 when Arlington</p></li><li><p>8/3/2019 bMichael Events This Week 11 November 2011</p><p> 4/43</p><p>artists spent ten days in Aachen, Germany. The artists collaborated on site-specific installations in the Aula</p><p>Carolina, a 17th-century monastery that now serves as a cultural center in the city. The work they created was on</p><p>view at Aula Carolina for the week of the exchange, and has since traveled to other cities in Belgium and the</p><p>Netherlands. The goals of the exchange are for artists to work collaboratively to create site-specific installations, to</p><p>explore the differences and similarities in the artists situations, and to provide insight into cultural work of the</p><p>two countries.</p><p>Sponsored by dreieck.triangle.driehoek, Arlington Cultural Affairs, Arlington Sister City Association and Kulturbetrieb</p><p>der Stadt Aachen</p><p>Susan Calloway Fine Arts and Thos.

By incorporating color fields, shooting and falling lines, andetchings, which overlap and move, she creates compositions suggestive of coastal</p><p>landscapes. The dislocation of her interweaving values and color planes are steadied</p></li><li><p>8/3/2019 bMichael Events This Week 11 November 2011</p><p> 5/43</p><p>by the navigation of her deliberate lines. Cooley, who has described herself as an artistwho has "a deep relationship with the paint," uses knives, spatulas and even her hands</p><p>in this tactile relationship. Cooley's most recent works explore the manner in which</p><p>natural elements transform man-made structures, revealing the beauty and mystery of</p><p>remembered spaces.</p><p>Over the past ten years, Alison Hall Cooley has exhibited in Nantucket (annual soloshows), Washington DC, Richmond, VA, and Lenox, MA. Her work is included in</p><p>over one hundred private collections, with a particularly strong support base in</p><p>Nantucket, where she currently resides, and the Washington DC area, where she grew</p><p>up.</p><p>Cooley studied at Sarah Lawrence College and continued her education at theCorcoran School of Art in Washington, DC. She is the winner of several awards,</p><p>including the Charles C. McDougall Award for Promising New Artist. She has been</p><p>featured in numerous publications, including Nantucket Living, The Georgetowner</p><p>and the Nantucket Independent, and has been recognized by the Artists Association ofNantucket for her work.</p><p>Sweet Tides is on view at Thos.

Made exclusively from polypropylene pipe</p><p>and nylon cable ties, the work pays homage to Washington DC's own iconic cherry</p><p>trees, whilst questioning our relationship with and attitudes towards plastics. The</p><p>longevity and ready availability of the industrially manufactured materials used to</p><p>construct the installation stands in stark contrast to the ephemerality and natural</p><p>beauty of the cherry trees and blossoms it emulates.</p><p>Above the Radar IIOpening ReceptionSaturday, November 5, 7:00-10:00 p.m.</p><p>The FridgeRear Alley516 1/2 8th Street SEWashington, DC 20003</p></li><li><p>8/3/2019 bMichael Events This Week 11 November 2011</p><p> 8/43</p><p>Above the Radar II debuts at The Fridge.

In her Fotoweek DC exhibition, titled (Re)calling and (Re)telling,</p><p>artist Kesha Bruce offers viewers a contemporary entryway to the rich tradition of</p><p>storytelling in art through the use of both photography and collage.</p><p>For the past several years, Kesha Bruce has created work using an old collection of</p><p>photographs taken by her grandfather during his years as a soldier during the Korean War.</p><p>In addition to the many photographs of young African American soldiers going about theirdaily routines, the collection also included snapshots and informal family portraits taken</p><p>upon his return home to Des Moines, Iowa. Fascinated by the people and places in each</p><p>photograph, these images soon became the basis for two complete bodies of work.</p><p>The narratives Bruce recreates in (Re)calling and (Re)telling, are composed of a mysterious</p><p>mix of elements culled from the intimate terrain of memory, nostalgia, and the mundane</p><p>remnants of daily life.</p><p>Also featured at Morton Fine Art is her latest series The Story, comprised of small, intimate</p><p>mixed media works on paper which render character and place through the use of</p><p>minimalist texts, each work relating to the next like non-linear chapters of a novel that</p><p>refuse to settle into a comfortable beginning, middle, and end.</p><p>About Kesha BRUCE (France, b. USA):</p><p>Born and raised in Iowa, Bruce studied painting at the University of Iowa before going on to</p><p>earn her MFA in Painting from Hunter College in New York City. She has received awards</p><p>from the New York Foundation for the Arts, The Vermont Studio Center, and The PuffinFoundation. Her photographic work from (Re)calling &amp; (Re)telling was awarded the EnFoco</p><p>New Works Photography prize and was included in the traveling exhibition Double</p><p>Exposure: African Americans Before and Behind the Camera.</p></li><li><p>8/3/2019 bMichael Events This Week 11 November 2011</p><p> 12/43</p><p>WORLD PREMIERE</p><p>A Child Shall Lead Them:</p><p>Making The Night of the HunterWritten and directed by Professor Derek Goldman</p><p>Thursday-Saturday, November 3-5 at 8 p.m.</p><p>Sunday, November 6 at 2 p.m.</p><p>Davis Performing Arts Center, Gonda Theatre</p><p>Georgetown University</p><p>A co-production between Georgetown University Theaterand Performance Studies Program and University of</p><p>Maryland School of Theatre, Dance, and PerformanceStudies</p><p>The 1955 film The Night of the Hunterwas largelyignored upon its release but is now widely regarded as anAmerican masterpiece.

The playprovides a powerful new framework for experiencing thisuniquely chilling tale of corruption and evil, in which theforces of creation and destruction do battle with each</p><p>other, within and outside of the frame.</p><p>Ticket prices for Georgetown performances:</p><p>FRI/SAT EVENING ONLY: $18 GENERAL/ $15 FACULTY, STAFF, ALUMNI, SENIOR/ $10 STUDENTALL OTHER PERFORMANCES: $15 GENERAL/ $12 FACULTY, STAFF, ALUMNI, SENIOR/ $7 STUDENT</p><p>SPECIAL FREE EVENTS</p><p>Saturday, November 5leading up to the ticketed evening performance of A Child Shall Lead Them: Making The Night of the</p><p>Hunterco-sponsored by Georgetown University Department of Performing Arts and Film and MediaStudies Program</p><p>4:00 p.m.</p><p>Screening of The Night of the Hunter</p><p>Introduced by Jeffrey Couchman,</p><p>author ofThe Night of the Hunter: A Biograph...</p></li></ul>
