Opening Reception: Beyond a Bowl of Rice by Chee Wang Ng @ Bertha V.B. Lederer Gallery in Brodie Hall, SUNY Geneseo
Oct 25 @ 5:00 pm – 7:00 pm

Exhibit Dates: October 25 – December 9, 2017

Opening Reception: October 25, 5 – 7 PM

Artist Talk in Gallery at 5:30 PM

“This street photography series focuses on the greater consciousness of the silent voices of Chinese diaspora as minority that is untold, forgotten, and hidden which need to be known, validated, and made permanent. How we relate to photography is far beyond the early days of the staged wet plate collodion print, personal memento, street documentation, and even the social media. We pride them more than “self-evidence” of capturing a frozen decisive moment but a rich visual record of events and evidence that we needed to be reminded, and in providing us with that transformative context to propel us even further. Together they form an aesthetic compendium, an archive of cohesive context in readdressing history and cultural signifiers from a fresh perspective for the more intelligent future. For we cannot travel back in time to encapsulate the past, we supplemented this essay with vintage ephemera.” This quote is from “Dinner Time: Chinese Diaspora Livelihood” by artist Chee Wang Ng.

These photographs are part of an ongoing series documenting the Chinese diaspora through small business enterprise that human beings cannot do without. Food. These restaurants ensure the survival of the community in our contested capitalist society. This exhibit of photographs is but one part of Ng’s exhibit. Included is a video, an installation piece from the series “Cow Creamers” and four large scale photographs from the series “Eaten Your Fill of Rice.” Chee Wang Ng will attend the opening reception and will discuss his work.

All exhibits are free and open to the public.

Coming Out Under Fire
(United States, 1994, Arthur Dong)

Coming Out Under Fire features nine gay and lesbian veterans who recount how they joined the patriotic war against fascism in the 1940s only to find themselves fighting two battles: one for their country and another for their right to serve. This documentary is based on the ground-breaking book by MacArthur “Genius Grant” recipient, Allan Bérubé, and probes the origins of the military’s anti-homosexual policy to document how pseudo-psychiatry, erroneous medical theory, and misplaced ethics masked a policy based on nothing short of prejudice. Presented by Amanda Roth, Assistant Professor of Philosophy.

Fanatics Presents: Davy Knowles @ The Geneseo Riviera
Nov 10 @ 8:00 pm

The journey began for Davy Knowles growing up in the Isle of Man, learning to play guitar from listening to the likes of Gallagher, Clapton, Knopfler, Green and Mayall in his fathers record collection, and honing his skills playing the local music circuit. Knowles’s professional career started with a bang  arriving in America age 19 with his band Back Door Slam, an acclaimed debut album,   and rave reviews at SXSW 2007. (I heard the spirit of Jimi Hendrix — Patrick MacDonald, Seattle Times). From that dynamic introduction, Knowles proceeded to make a significant impact across US media  from memorable TV performances on Jimmy Kimmel and Good Morning America, to a three year run at radio with the singles ‘Come Home’ from the debut album Roll Away and ‘Tear Down the Walls’ and ‘Coming Up For Air’ from the Peter Frampton produced sophomore album  both albums Top 3 Billboard Blues Chart. Davy already has a recognizable style. He’s definitely the gunslinger guitarist of the 21st century.
See Davy live at the Geneseo Riviera! Doors open at 7 PM.
