When a hot-shot Airforce F16 fighter pilot becomes unexpectedly pregnant, she is removed from her super-sonic life in the sky and placed in a trailer in the Nevada desert to fight the “war on terror” piloting a drone. A powerful story of a solider pulled out of the battlefield and thrust into domestic life, from the blue abyss to a small grey screen, and into a reality she never imagined.

Description:
The fictional account, by Peter Weiss, of a play written by the Marquis de Sade and presented by the inmates at the asylum at Charenton. It concerns the murder of Jean Paul Marat, a leader of the French Revolution, at the hands of Charlotte Corday. The play questions the motives of revolution and the needs for it to happen. Many aspects of the play are based on historical facts. Sade, after whom sadism is named, was a prolific writer who was imprisoned and eventually sent to the asylum as a political prisoner. There he wrote and produced plays as therapy for the inmates and they were witnessed by members of the Charenton community. The Tony Award winning play was first produced in April, 1964 and was a striking commentary about the political unrest of the 1960s. Many of the points made in the play are even more relevant today. This play is for mature audiences and includes scenes of violence.

The Center for Craft, Creativity & Design (CCCD) is pleased to announce the second annual Windgate Research and Collections Curator Lecture. In their new book, Art in the Making: Artists and their Materials from the Studio to Crowdsourcing, Julia Bryan-Wilson and Glenn Adamson make a series of provocative arguments about contemporary art practice. Noting the longstanding aversion of artists and their representatives to transparent discussion of production, they argue for the importance of process in critical interpretation.  In this talk, they will highlight one of the most important, yet least discussed aspects in the making of contemporary art: its economic footprint. They will examine issues such as the use of luxury materials, dependence on fabricators, and the significance of scale. Among the artists under discussion will be Susan Collis, Urs Fischer, Sylvie Fleury, Damian Hirst, Jeff Koons, Jill Magid, Ai Weiwei, and Rachel Whiteread. A reception will follow the talk at 7:30 pm, including a book signing by Malaprop's. The event is free and open to the public, but registration is required. $3-5 suggested donation. About the speakers: Glenn Adamson is a curator and theorist who works across the fields of design, craft and contemporary art. He was until March 2016 the Director of the Museum of Arts and Design (MAD), New York. He has previously been Head of Research at the V&A, and Curator at the Chipstone Foundation in Milwaukee. His publications include Art in the Making (2016, co-authored with Julia Bryan Wilson); Invention of Craft (2013); Postmodernism: Style and Subversion (2011); The Craft Reader (2010); and Thinking Through Craft (2007). Julia Bryan-Wilson is associate professor of contemporary art at the University of California, Berkeley and a frequent contributor to Artforum. She is the author Art Workers: Radical Practice in the Vietnam War Era (2009), and, with Glenn Adamson, Art in the Making: Artists and their Materials from the Studio to Crowdsourcing (2016). Her book Fray: Art and Textile Politics will be published in 2017 by the University of Chicago Press. About the book: Art in the Making: Artists and their Materials from the Studio to Crowdsourcing (Thames and Hudson, 2016) In this wide-ranging exploration of methods and media in art since the 1950s Glenn Adamson and Julia Bryan-Wilson take the reader behind the scenes of the studio, the factory, and other sites where art is created. They show how the materials and processes used by artists are vital to considerations of authorship, and to understanding the economic and social contexts from which art emerges. About the Windgate Research and Collections Curator: The Windgate Research and Collections Curator is a jointly appointed position demonstrating a significant partnership between CCCD, the Museum of Arts and Design (MAD), and the Bard Graduate Center (BGC) in New York City. This position serves to establish a new hub for expanded field of craft research in the United States. Funded by the Windgate Charitable Foundation, the post is intended to advance scholarly research and critical discourse in the fields of craft and design through research, exhibitions, publications, and public programming.  Elissa Auther was appointed Windgate Research and Collections Curator in 2015, at MAD, BGC, and CCCD. At MAD she has recently launched an initiative to reactivate the museum’s permanent collection with a series of creative exhibitions that connect the history of craft to contemporary artistic practice today. At BGC, she teaches graduate seminars in contemporary art and the history of craft. In addition to serving on CCCD's Program Advisory Council, Auther organizes an annual lecture series in Asheville, NC.

Traditional Turkish Coffee Readings Oct. 29 & 30 6:30pm - 10:30pm 8 sessions per day Performed by Salma Melchizedek EXPERIENCE This special tasseographic experience is a benefit to Brother Wolf. 50% ($25.00) of proceeds benefit this wonderful animal organization. Coffee tasseography has many names for simplicity we will refer to it as coffee reading. As is the tradition with the clairvoyant female members of the Melchizedek family, Turkish coffee will be brewed for each person. IMMERSION To allow for a most authentic experience, Lex 18 will be setting up at one of its private window tables a privacy curtain with thick velvet drapes and middle eastern bedouin tent entrance pieces to create a very Eastern Victorian private space for the guest. Turkish coffee will be prepared and served in a small turkish coffee cup. The guest (querent) then consumes most of the coffee in the cup leaving the sediments in the cup to settle. The cup is then covered with the saucer and turned upside-down towards themselves. The coffee grounds are given time to dry against the cup before a reading begins. In the Turkish tradition, Salma Melchizedek will interpret the cup as being divided into horizontal halves: symbols appearing on the bottom half are interpreted as messages regarding the past, and symbols on the top half are messages regarding the future. Salma adheres to the belief that the cup is capable of revealing insights about the past, and can predict events beyond forty days into the future. If pertinent she will use the saucer in the reading. After a reading, the querent will be asked to "open the heart". This is done by placing the right thumb at the inside bottom of the cup and twisting clockwise slightly. This will leave an impression behind that Salma Melchizedek will interpret as the querent's inner thoughts or emotions. Salma Melchizedek Born in Spain, her ancestry is both Assyrian and Spaniard - an Iberian Peninsula mix which provides a strong empath to her clairvoyant talents. Turkish coffee reading is a very sensitive experience for both the reader and querent so trust and serious intention create the best frame of mind and heart. RESERVATIONS To guarantee a reading we recommend purchasing tickets can be purchased in advance on Brown Paper Tickets. Phone reservations can be made on the day of the reading October 29th and 30th from 1pm to 5pm. Ten slots are available each evening. TICKET for READING: $50 per person - 50% or minimum $25 to Benefit Brother Wolfe Limited to 8 guests per day STYLE AND DRESS This is a uniquely designed experience with a very other wordily experience. To enhance the experience and to convey an authentic atmosphere we ask our guests to dress more up outside of the normal daily wear.
