[more+]

Amanda Ross-Ho’s work is a form of experimental archival research, driven by conflicting impulses towards sentimentality and clinical objectivity. Embracing contradictions between forensics and theatre, her work’s aim is not to establish clarity or secure links to the past, but to closely analyse, disarticulate, and exaggerate artifacts into poetic forms. The resulting reconfigurations suggest a type of liberated futurity. Her work aims to monumentalize the transitory and often corrupted relationships between time, form, witness, and memory.

Untitled Inventory (CATALOGUE IRRAISONNÉ), is a new installation by Ross-Ho, devised specifically for AEIVA to address the archive as a subject, empirical pursuit, and an opportunity for fictive and theatrical abstraction.

AEIVA kicks off its 10th Anniversary celebration by revisiting one of its most popular exhibitions to date. Warhol Revisited pulls from AEIVA’s impressive collection of original works by legendary artist Andy Warhol, along with loans from The Andy Warhol Museum and local art collectors.

Additionally, this exhibit will present a dynamic selection of works from artist Charles Lutz, whose infamous Denied series draws attention to the still-relevant complications involving production, appropriation, authenticity, and the market value associated with Warhol’s work. Lutz’s hand-painted, Warhol replicas address the confounding and complex topic of how value in various forms, including intrinsic, artistic, cultural, societal, and monetary value is assigned to works of art.

This printmaking class is a free, one-hour introduction to the art of block printing. Block printing is a process similar to stamp-making, where the negative space of an image is carved away from the block and the remaining design is inked and printed on paper. No prior experience with printmaking or art is required to enjoy this class! Printmaking is a simple, enjoyable, and rewarding process that you can easily continue to practice at home with just a few basic supplies. This class will use rubber blocks as the carving material, so the process will not be strenuous. Participants of all ages are welcome. All supplies necessary will be provided—all you need to bring is yourself! However, this class is limited to ten participants, so make sure to sign up while there are still spots available. This class will be taught by Parker Evans, a local printmaker. Parker's work can be found on Instagram at @yalldove. This class is made possible by funding from Create Birmingham and is presented by Magic City Art Mart and the Birmingham Public Library.

In a reimagined John Hughes-meets-Shakespeare world, things go comically awry when two high school pals fall for the same girl. Directed by Santiago Sosa, the production is packed with doublets, letterman jackets, boomboxes, swords and crimped hair.

“As a Gen X-er, I grew up with two older sisters who were very much into ’80s pop culture,” Sosa said. “I love music videos to this day, and this production is an ode to that time in my life.”

Theatre UAB is the performance company of the University of Alabama at Birmingham College of Arts and Sciences’ Department of Theatre.

“Two Gentlemen of Verona” is set for performances at 7:30 p.m. March 4-8, in UAB’s Alys Stephens Performing Arts Center, Sirote Theatre. Tickets are $12-$15; $10 for students, UAB employees and senior citizens. For tickets, call 205-975-2787 or visit AlysStephens.org.

A special guest artist for this production is actor James Ridge of American Players Theatre, whose mentorship was instrumental to Sosa. Ridge is working with students on their characters and his approach in rehearsals and will play the role of The Duke. His visit to UAB is made possible by a generous gift from the Jemison Fund. Ridge has worked with Milwaukee Repertory Theatre, Milwaukee Chamber Theatre, Renaissance, Next Act, Forward, Madison Repertory and Utah Shakespeare Festival, among other credits.

Theatre UAB first presented this play as a musical in 1984, and the production featured UAB junior Jack Cannon. Now 40 years later, and purely by chance, it will be performed again and set in the 1980s. Cannon, who graduated in 1985, is now assistant professor of Theatre, and will also perform in this production. Michael Mercardo will play Launce, the role Cannon had, and serve as fight captain.

[more+]

Amanda Ross-Ho’s work is a form of experimental archival research, driven by conflicting impulses towards sentimentality and clinical objectivity. Embracing contradictions between forensics and theatre, her work’s aim is not to establish clarity or secure links to the past, but to closely analyse, disarticulate, and exaggerate artifacts into poetic forms. The resulting reconfigurations suggest a type of liberated futurity. Her work aims to monumentalize the transitory and often corrupted relationships between time, form, witness, and memory.

Untitled Inventory (CATALOGUE IRRAISONNÉ), is a new installation by Ross-Ho, devised specifically for AEIVA to address the archive as a subject, empirical pursuit, and an opportunity for fictive and theatrical abstraction.

AEIVA kicks off its 10th Anniversary celebration by revisiting one of its most popular exhibitions to date. Warhol Revisited pulls from AEIVA’s impressive collection of original works by legendary artist Andy Warhol, along with loans from The Andy Warhol Museum and local art collectors.

Additionally, this exhibit will present a dynamic selection of works from artist Charles Lutz, whose infamous Denied series draws attention to the still-relevant complications involving production, appropriation, authenticity, and the market value associated with Warhol’s work. Lutz’s hand-painted, Warhol replicas address the confounding and complex topic of how value in various forms, including intrinsic, artistic, cultural, societal, and monetary value is assigned to works of art.

This printmaking class is a free, one-hour introduction to the art of block printing. Block printing is a process similar to stamp-making, where the negative space of an image is carved away from the block and the remaining design is inked and printed on paper. No prior experience with printmaking or art is required to enjoy this class! Printmaking is a simple, enjoyable, and rewarding process that you can easily continue to practice at home with just a few basic supplies. This class will use rubber blocks as the carving material, so the process will not be strenuous. Participants of all ages are welcome. All supplies necessary will be provided—all you need to bring is yourself! However, this class is limited to ten participants, so make sure to sign up while there are still spots available. This class will be taught by Parker Evans, a local printmaker. Parker's work can be found on Instagram at @yalldove. This class is made possible by funding from Create Birmingham and is presented by Magic City Art Mart and the Birmingham Public Library.

In a reimagined John Hughes-meets-Shakespeare world, things go comically awry when two high school pals fall for the same girl. Directed by Santiago Sosa, the production is packed with doublets, letterman jackets, boomboxes, swords and crimped hair.

“As a Gen X-er, I grew up with two older sisters who were very much into ’80s pop culture,” Sosa said. “I love music videos to this day, and this production is an ode to that time in my life.”

Theatre UAB is the performance company of the University of Alabama at Birmingham College of Arts and Sciences’ Department of Theatre.

“Two Gentlemen of Verona” is set for performances at 7:30 p.m. March 4-8, in UAB’s Alys Stephens Performing Arts Center, Sirote Theatre. Tickets are $12-$15; $10 for students, UAB employees and senior citizens. For tickets, call 205-975-2787 or visit AlysStephens.org.

A special guest artist for this production is actor James Ridge of American Players Theatre, whose mentorship was instrumental to Sosa. Ridge is working with students on their characters and his approach in rehearsals and will play the role of The Duke. His visit to UAB is made possible by a generous gift from the Jemison Fund. Ridge has worked with Milwaukee Repertory Theatre, Milwaukee Chamber Theatre, Renaissance, Next Act, Forward, Madison Repertory and Utah Shakespeare Festival, among other credits.

Theatre UAB first presented this play as a musical in 1984, and the production featured UAB junior Jack Cannon. Now 40 years later, and purely by chance, it will be performed again and set in the 1980s. Cannon, who graduated in 1985, is now assistant professor of Theatre, and will also perform in this production. Michael Mercardo will play Launce, the role Cannon had, and serve as fight captain.
