Visiting Artist Series
Juana Valdes’ artwork is grounded in a multi-disciplinary practice that combines the process of printmaking, photography, sculpture and ceramic. It integrates the social-political discourse within the art object to analyze relationships between contemporary and historical imagery and their connection to the social political and economic dominance of the cultures that produce them and their impact on cultural memory. Valdez’ work traces, recollects, and records her personal experience as a Cuban-American immigrant.

Blue Angel

The Blue Angel is a 1930 German tragicomedic film directed by Josef von Sternberg and starring Emil Jannings, Marlene Dietrich and Kurt Gerron. It is based on Heinrich Mann’s novel Professor Unrat (“Professor Garbage”, 1905), and set in Weimar Germany. The Blue Angel presents the tragic transformation of a man from a respectable professor to a cabaret clown, and his descent into madness. The film is considered to be the first major German sound film, and brought Dietrich international fame.

Visiting Artist Series
Working within the legacy of abstraction in painting, Juan Iribarren is interested in that seemingly impossible and contradictory juxtaposition of geometry, the luminous and the atmospheric. Iribarren conceives his works to be experienced as abstract paintings, even though each one refers to a specific visual event to which it remains strictly faithful.

ThirdManUSPoster

The Third Man is a 1949 British film noir, directed by Carol Reed, with screenplay by English novelist and author Graham Greene, who was regarded as one of the greatest writers of the 20th century, and starring Joseph Cotten, Alida Valli, Orson Welles, and Trevor Howard. The plot is one of intrigue, suspense and murder in post World War II Vienna. The film is considered one of the greatest films of all time, celebrated for its atmospheric cinematography, performances, and musical score. (Anton Karas wrote and performed the score, which used only the zither; its title music “The Third Man Theme” topped the international music charts in 1950.)
