Cincinnati Art Museum Behind the Scenes in Conservation: Upside down and inside out! Several wool shawls dating from the 18th and 19th centuries were being repacked for storage when this one caused some confusion: which side is the “right side” (the side that should go “out” when the shawl is worn)? The decorated paisley borders have been sewn “right sides to wrong sides” at two corners. A sloppy seamstress’ mistake? A prescient deconstructivist design choice? Not at all! This shawl is a giant square intended to be folded along the diagonal when worn: the mis-matched corners are actually a clever adjustment to allow both folded halves to be “right sides out” when in use. 3 hour ago via Facebook

MamLuft&Co. Dance was named by CityBeat as Cincinnati’s Best Dance Company Pushing the Envelope in 2012. MamLuft&Co. Dance’s seventh season features thoughtful, original, highly physical, and athletic Modern Dance, and the Company is delighted to partner with Cincinnati Art Museum to remember the World War I hundred-year anniversary.

 

The Cincinnati Art Museum and MamLuft&Co. Dance co-present a tour and performance centered on Cincinnati Art Museum’s special exhibit, Cries in the Night: German Expressionist Prints around World War I. The evenings begin with guided tours of the special exhibition and conclude in the Art Museum’s monumental Great Hall, where MamLuft&Co. Dance will perform a modern work. The Modern Dance performance is inspired by the exhibit and the Expressionist movement itself, a pivotal era in both visual art and dance.

 

This Art Museum’s exhibition of prints traces the avant-garde and the concurrent renaissance in the graphic arts, particularly printmaking, with the founding of the Brücke in 1905, through the devastating and transformative impact of the artist’s careers after Germany entered World War I in August 1914, and its aftermath during the early years of the Weimar Republic.

 

CINCINNATI REMEMBERS WWI: This program is presented as part of “Cincinnati Remembers WWI,” a citywide series of events commemorating the centenary of the First World War and anticipating Cincinnati Opera’s production of the Pulitzer Prize-winning opera Silent Night in July 2014.
