Exhibit: The Longing Ritual

Kipp Gallery, First Floor Sprowls 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.

netflix & chill: toy story 3 & 4IUP, you got a friend in STATIC.

Live on the big screen in the HUB Ohio Room, join STATIC as we present a Netflix and Chill Double Feature with back-to-back showings of Toy Story 3 & 4 on Friday, December 5, at 7:00 p.m. We’ll supply the movie, popcorn, candy, drinks, and not-creepy-at-all-alive-toys. You just bring your PJs, blankets, and some pillows.

In Toy Story 3, “Woody, Buzz, and the whole gang are back. As their owner Andy prepares to depart for college, his loyal toys find themselves in daycare where untamed tots with their sticky little fingers do not play nice. So, it's all for one and one for all as they join Barbie's counterpart Ken, a thespian hedgehog named Mr. Pricklepants, and a pink, strawberry-scented teddy bear called Lots-o'-Huggin' Bear to plan their great escape.” Tissues will not be provided.

In Toy Story 4, “Woody, Buzz Lightyear, and the rest of the gang embark on a road trip with Bonnie and a new toy named Forky. The adventurous journey turns into an unexpected reunion as Woody's slight detour leads him to his long-lost friend Bo Peep. As Woody and Bo discuss the old days, they soon start to realize that they're worlds apart when it comes to what they want from life as a toy.”

This event is completely free!
