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.

Apr 8 @ 7:00 pm

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.

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

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.
