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.

Make your admissions visit a Weekday Buffet Tour. Culinary and baking students will serve up sweet and savory foods made in class while you tour our kitchens and get the information you need.

Tuesday, November 12 through Friday, November 15:  Decolonial Cuisine - A culinary movement honoring the heritage of Indigenous America through their foodways and dietary choices.

Come to The Allenwood in Ackerman Hall for a special menu each day between 11:30 a.m. and 1:00 p.m., November 12-15. Menu and pricing available at Allenwood-Lunch@iup.edu.

Theater: “1984” Presented by Aquila Theatre

Fisher Auditorium, IUP Performing Arts Center

The Lively Arts

In George Orwell’s 1984, Winston Smith wrestles with oppression in Oceania, a place where the Party scrutinizes human actions with ever-watchful Big Brother. Defying a ban on individuality, Winston dares to express his thoughts in a diary and pursues a relationship with Julia. These criminal deeds bring Winston into the eye of the opposition, who then must reform the nonconformist.

George Orwell’s 1984 introduced the watchwords for life without freedom: BIG BROTHER IS WATCHING YOU. Written in 1944 near the end of World War II, 1984 depicts a society controlled by a perfectly totalitarian government where technology is wielded as a weapon to inundate citizens with propaganda and to monitor thoughts and actions. Imagined before the existence of computers, this dystopian future explores the power of technology as a mental manipulator and source of curated information.
