LICENSED TO SHOW EXHIBITION
Jun 15, 2018 - All Day Oct 06, 2018 - All Day
Friday June 15th- October 6th at Design at Riverside.

Design at Riverside will showcase a selection of works from the Contemporary Fibre Collection to further the conversations of preservation and presentation of works held by Cambridge Art Galleries. Over 115 Canadian artists are represented in the permanent collection dedicated to fibre based works. In the late eighties, we decided to pursue a particular collection mandate focused on the fibre medium, partly because the region’s flourishing industrial base was originally established by the textile industry, and partly because such specialization would set us apart from other institutional collectors. The works in our permanent collection are decidedly contemporary, pushing the limits on all fronts. Take a close look at some of the installation works that live within our vault.

MAN OF LA MANCHA: AN INSPIRING MUSICAL QUEST
Oct 10, 2018 - All Day Nov 04, 2018 - All Day
Oct 10 to Nov 4
Hamilton Family Theatre Cambridge

One of the greatest treasures in musical theatre, Man of La Mancha is a breathtaking tale of epic proportions.

In a bleak dungeon, the playwright Cervantes is awaiting trial by the Spanish Inquisition. But first he must face a court of fellow prisoners eager to relieve him of his precious unfinished manuscript. In order to save himself, Cervantes stages the saga of Don Quixote, casting himself as the deluded knight errant on a magical adventure to defend the noble principles of honour and truth.

With its timely message of courage and idealism in the face of despair, Man of La Mancha will inspire all of us to keep reaching for the stars with its unforgettable anthem, “The Impossible Dream.” This powerful and riveting theatrical experience will touch the heart, stir the soul, and unleash the imagination.

Idea Exchange
Design at Riverside
Exhibiting Graduate Students: Ala Abuhasan, Marco Chimienti, Paniz Moayeri, Victoria Ngai, Thomas Yuan, Victor Zagabe

As architecture students we are taught to draw, to distill information into lines concisely and abstractly. We diagram the relations between events and spaces over time. We zoom out. We make abstract to understand the scope of questions we seek to tackle. We find relationships. We highlight them. The aim is to zoom back in when we design, to touch the everyday. At times, however, the abstraction causes us to forget the human.

Photographs capture the quotidian. They are literal traces of light in a moment, proof for the details the abstracted maps and time-lines leave behind. They make the affects of larger spatial phenomena tangible. They capture the human. At first glance, all the photographs capture mundane movement through everyday life. Yet they have embedded within them great questions about the apartheid separation of the Holy Land, the affects of the Chinese Cultural Revolution on individuals, the pragmatic brutality of cremation, the heritage of placeless exile in Iran’s LGBTI+ community, the inflicted wounds of roads and towers on the Great Plains, and the legacy of the Belgian colonization of the Congo. The pictures on display aim to capture the truth of individuals, moments, and places ignored or misunderstood.

EVENT 2: TRACES: ON OPPRESSIVE IDEOLOGIES
Oct 29, 2018 6:30 PM Oct 29, 2018 8:30 PM
October 22, 2018 6:30 PM to 8:30 PM at Design at Riverside

Victor Zagabe and Thomas Yuan examine how oppression and control can manifest in varying spatial relations. On one hand, the building holds the potential to become a symbol of deceptive mass communication, shrouding ideological contradictions. Victor examines three buildings which encapsulate hidden and visible identities constructed through imperialism and Zairianization. This is viewed in a visual medium which sets the tone for the apocalyptic ends of these ideologies. As a counterpoint, Thomas looks at the excess of control extended by the visual and material culture of 1960s China. No longer at the forefront of public consciousness, architecture is overshadowed by the tyranny of mass media in the form of dazibao, big character posters. The result is a creation of a space of self-surveillance and violence.

November 23 – February 15, 2018 at Idea Exchange Queen's

La Rábida is a Franciscan monastery overlooking the mouth of the Rio Tinto near the small town of Palos de la Frontera on the Atlantic coast of Spain. Christopher Columbus set sail from this place in August 1492 confident he would find a new route to Asia. He landed instead on an island in the Caribbean Sea. The cultural confrontation that followed his landing is the inspiration and subject of this exhibition.
