Exhibit: The Longing Ritual

Kipp Gallery, First Floor Spowls Hall

Throughout his career, the concept of synthesis has been central to Turri’s work. The source material for “The Longing Ritual” series is culled from cyclical rituals: walking through Frick Park, the Homewood Cemetery, the neighborhoods of Squirrel Hill, and Point Breeze where he often records (through photography) the memorable visual moments that he experiences with regularity.

The paintings are not traditional landscape paintings; the work is meant to reflect the ever-pervasive presence of the screen and the digital device and its intrusion on the ability for real experience.

Dance Theater: “Stargazer”

Zink Dance Studio, Second Floor of Zink Hall

Join the IUP Dance Theater on a journey through the cosmos. Through movement and original music, explore the dynamic imagery and theories related to the universe.
