Coming soon: Uncle Vanya

Empathy meets apathy in KCDC’s production of Anton Chekhov’s extraordinary dramatic meditation on unrequited love, dreams deferred and environmental decay. Infused with the playwright’s renowned wit, this story of a family’s pursuit of illusory fulfillment suggests that the strongest cages are the ones we build for ourselves. Annie Baker (winner of the 2014 Pulitzer Prize for Drama) adapts the long-celebrated tragicomedy.

Uncle Vanya begins this Thursday, February 2

Ending soon: Black Women/Black Lives

“Black Women/Black Lives” explores the symbolic and narrative portrayal of Black women in art and material culture inspired by Civil Rights and Black liberation movements of the 1960s through our own 21st century moment.

Anchored by recent gifts from Gund Gallery Board Member David Horvitz ‘74 and his wife Francie Bishop Good to the Gund Gallery Collection, this Gund Associate (intern)-curated exhibition offers a gendered lens through which to view 20th century civil rights activism so that we may better understand the roots and the aspirations of the political consciousness generated by Black liberation art, ephemera and digital culture today.

Artists: Bob Adelman, Romare Bearden, Claire Beckett ‘00, Bruce Davidson, Wanda Ewing, Jacob Lawrence, Faith Ringgold, Lorna Simpson, Renée Stout, and material culture from Interference Archive (NYC).

Black Women/Black Lives ends this Friday, February 3
