Wednesday, June 30th at 7pm "A Brief History of Queer Space"
Join us for a conversation with artist Leah DeVun and Dr. Lisa Moore, Associate Professor of English and Women's and
at UT. She is the author of the forthcoming "Sister Arts: Lesbian Genres and the Erotic Landscape" (Minnesota 2011).
Our Hands on Each Other
June 3 - July 15, 2010
Viewers are invited to actively construct a new collective women's space (in the form of a wood structure) as a performance and installation piece. Tools and materials are available. In addition to her series of photographs and portraits of women, DeVun has made light boxes that include images inspired by vintage photographs of street marchers and protesters. These photographs are political and anthemic, an homage to the impressive energy of feminists in the 1970s. DeVun’s exhibit draws its title from a quotation from “Lesbian Land,” published during the 1970s and 1980s. It is a compilation of writing by lesbians who founded or lived in women’s intentional communities, sometimes called “womyn’s lands.” DeVun's work combines documentary and staged photography in an effort to collapse and interweave the different generations of lesbian/ transgender/queer people who have been involved in the creation of feminist space, as well as to picture the relationship between utopian ideals and hard-fought reality.

Califa Arts Collaborative Presents 'Dance Meets Arts Meets Music'
[JUNE 18TH & 19TH, 6:30 AND 9:00PM]
Califa Arts Collaborative is a collection of artists inspiring unity in the
Austin art world. We are being driven by the desire to make art more
accessible to everyone. Four FREE shows performed on June 18 and 19 (6:30
pm and 9:00 pm both nights) will include three original new works of dance inspired by both music and visual art. The first piece, titled “The Greatest of These”, features the collaboration between choreographer Reginald Harris and composer Catherine Davis. The second piece,
choreographed and performed by Lisa del Rosario and titled “Home with Yellow Fever”, is inspired by the music of Yellow Fever and the visual artistic talent of Alyson Fox. The evening will conclude with a large scale collaboration between choreographer Michelle Thompson, visual artists Caroline Wright, and musicians Jordan Moser, Lex Land, Jarrett Killen, and
Nicholas Walker. The piece, titled “Hiding Places”, will feature a live performance by the musicians as well as projections by artist Caroline Wright. The show will include dancers from all over Austin, including your local ballet company, Ballet Austin.
Admission: Free! **(donations greatly appreciated)
