    The people of the Standing Rock Sioux Reservation of North and South Dakota are fighting to stop a pipeline from being built on their ancestral homeland. The Dakota Access Pipeline would snake its way across four states, bisecting sacred indigenous sites and burial grounds along the route. The tribe fears that a leak could contaminate the Missouri River and spell disaster for the Great Sioux Nation. But youth are standing up in unprecedented numbers to preserve their way of life for future generations and to defend their sacred water. RISE heads to the Standing Rock Sioux Reservation to meet the Lakota and Dakota youth joining forces to protect their sacred water from the “black snake” set to invade their ancestral homeland.

  • Voulkos: The Breakthrough Years

    Museum of Art and Design
    2 Columbus Circle
    New York [map]
    Price: $16.00
    Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Thursdays, Fridays, Saturday and Sundays 10:00pm - 06:00pm
    October 18, 2016 - March 15, 2017

    Spanning the years 1953–1968, Voulkos: The Breakthrough Years is the first exhibition to focus on the early career of Peter Voulkos, whose radical methods and ideas during this period opened up the possibilities for clay in ways that are still being felt today. While trained as a traditional potter, Voulkos defied mid-century craft dictums of proper technique and form to completely reinvent his medium. He combined wheel throwing with slab building, traditional glazes with epoxy paint, figuration with abstraction, and made huge ceramic structures with complex internal engineering. The exhibition will feature approximately 31 examples from this crucial body of early work, most of which have not been exhibited on the East Coast for four decades. Also included will be three of the artist's rarely seen works in oil on canvas, which help to demonstrate how Voulkos developed his ideas concurrently in painting, sculpture, and pottery. Voulkos: The Breakthrough Years is part of MAD Transformations, a series of six exhibitions that address artists who have transformed and continue to transform our perceptions of traditional craft mediums. MAD’s six fall exhibitions consider fiber, clay, and jewelry & metals, disciplines that were the bedrock of the museum’s founding mission and collection, and that continue to morph in the hands of contemporary artists today.
