Exhibit: The Longing Ritual

Kipp Gallery, First Floor Spowls Hall

The Lively Arts

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.

Thursday, November 14:  Decolonize Thanksgiving Information Table - Visit this display in the HSS lobby between 10:00 a.m. and 2:00 p.m. Stories told about the first Thanksgiving often perpetuate harmful stereotypes and racism. Decolonize your Thanksgiving to go beyond the harmful "pilgrims and Indians" narrative and focus on common values: generosity, gratitude, community, and good food.

netflix & chill: the lion kingRemember… remember…

Live on the big screen in the HUB Ohio Room, join STATIC as we present a Netflix and Chill Movie Night with Disney’s live-action remake of The Lion King (2019) on Thursday, November 14, at 7:00 p.m. We’ll supply the movie, popcorn, candy, drinks, and nostalgia. You just bring your PJs, blankets, and some pillows.

In The Lion King (2019), “Simba idolizes his father, King Mufasa, and takes to heart his own royal destiny on the plains of Africa. But not everyone in the kingdom celebrates the new cub's arrival. Scar, Mufasa's brother -- and former heir to the throne -- has plans of his own. The battle for Pride Rock is soon ravaged with betrayal, tragedy, and drama, ultimately resulting in Simba's exile. Now, with help from a curious pair of newfound friends, Simba must figure out how to grow up and take back what is rightfully his.”

This event is completely free!
