Dark Ocean Artist Talk with Essma Imady and Syed Hosain

Thursday, December 7 at 7 p.m.

Law Warschaw Gallery
Janet Wallace Fine Arts Center

The potential end of net neutrality is fast approaching. A vote is scheduled for next week, and if the FCC passes this plan to dismantle the Obama-era Open Internet Order, introduced in 2015, then companies like Comcast and Verizon will engage in “paid prioritization,” ensuring some companies get content divided faster than other companies. That’s an issue connected to “Dark Ocean” at Macalester College’s Law Warschaw Gallery, a group exhibition in which artists question how we discern information in the Information Age. Two of the five artists from this exhibition will be on hand to discuss. Exhibition ends Dec. 17. https://www.macalester.edu/gallery/

Mara Duvra artist talk at White Page on

Thursday, December 7 from 7:30-8:30 p.m.

“I am intrigued by the possibility of stillness to bring about a sense of interiority/ creating a simultaneously silent and sonorous environment,” writes Mara Duvra on her website. Tonight she’ll talk about her current exhibition at White Page, “To allow for breath,” which is described in similarly poetic terms on the gallery’s website: http://the-white-page.org/Mara-Duvra.

From This Day Forward: Marriage and Miscarriage

Truckstop Gallery (20 Grove St. #72, Nicollet Island, Mpls)

Opening reception: Sat., Dec 9 from 5-9 p.m.

The Minneapolis artist’s work takes a direct approach to the “three R’s”: roots, restlessness and rootlessness rather than the two R’s of “rest and relaxation.” Through video and installation she discusses what it means to be grounded. Her work invites you into her life in a way that feels intimate.
