LISTINGS:
Betray the Secret: Humanity in the Age of “Frankenstein” April 4, 2018–August 5, 2018

Marking the 200th anniversary of the publication of Mary Shelley’s novel Frankenstein, or The Modern Prometheus, Stanford University is organizing Frankenstein@200. This yearlong series of courses, lectures, conferences, and a film festival will highlight the relevance of Shelley’s text today, as artificial intelligence and advances in engineering and medicine increasingly blur the divide between man and machine. An associated exhibition drawn from the Cantor’s permanent collection will explore the idea of what defines humanity in the age of Frankenstein.

The Dancing Sowei: Performing Beauty in Sierra Leone March 21, 2018–December 21, 2018
This exhibition focuses on one spectacular work in the Cantor’s collection—a sowei mask, used by the women-only Sande Society that is unique to Sierra Leone. Used in dance by senior women of the society, the sowei mask symbolizes knowledge of feminine grace and is part of a young girl’s initiation into adulthood. Thus, for many women of the region, beauty is literally performed into existence through ndoli jowei (the dancing sowei or the sowei mask in performance). Take an in-depth look at a sowei’s aesthetic expressions of elegance, from its serene gaze of inner spirituality to the corpulent neck rolls that signify health and wealth—a beauty as defined and danced by women.

Inflatable: Expanding Works of Art

05/26/2018-09/03/2018
10:00 上午 - 5:00 下午
Exploratorium
San Francisco 

Step inside and wonder at gigantic, fantastical air-filled artworks at Inflatable. Spread across our indoor and outdoor galleries, these ephemeral sculptures include otherworldly organisms by Jason Hackenwerth and Shih Chieh Huang, a “forest” of cushiony columns by Jimmy Kuehnle, an inflatable “insect-eye” room from Pneuhaus, and Amanda Parer’s monumental humanoid figures peeking around corners. Fueled by the whimsy and lightness of balloons, the artists of Inflatable have infused their creations with a technology, scale, and creative complexity that expands our vision of what contemporary art can look like.
