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.

Ke-nekt’ Series: Trumpeter Dave Douglas @ Sheldon Hall Ballroom

Dave Douglas

Ke-nekt’ Chamber Music Series: Trumpeter Dave Douglas
Host: Eric Schmitz | Pre-concert Talk: 7:00 PM

Dave Douglas arguably is the most original trumpeter/composer of his generation. Douglas’ stylistic
range is broad yet unaffected; his music is not a pastiche, but rather reflects a personal aesthetic of a wide variety of interests. He explicitly cites such diverse influences as Igor Stravinsky, Stevie Wonder, and John Coltrane.

As a composer, Douglas adapts and synthesizes unusual forms and creates his own out of
disparate elements. As a trumpeter, he possesses a comprehensive jazz technique; certainly one hears the ghost of Lester Bowie in Douglas’ expressive manipulations of timbre and pitch, but more pronounced is the integration of distinctive compositional and improvisational conceptions that ultimately defines his work.

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.

Focus on Faculty: Trevor Jorgensen, Clarinet; Robert Auler, Piano @ Sheldon Hall Ballroom
Apr 21 @ 7:30 pm

Jorgensen-Auler

Jorgensen and Auler recently performed together at Argentina’s famed Teatro Colon. They reprise their collaboration for this program of 19th and 20th century masterworks.
