  • 10:00 AM - 10:00 PM Barry Ace: Coalesce, Mixed Media Installation (Opening)

    Join us to celebrate the final exhibition of the season.

    Coalesce presents a fusion of distinct Anishinaabeg aesthetics of the Great Lakes’ region with the refuse from Western society’s technological and digital age. This entanglement of materials intentionally shifts the object’s materiality and its accepted paradigm within the physical world. Through this integration and juxtaposition of recognizable Anishinaabeg materials used in Anishinaabeg material culture (e.g. glass beads, porcupine quills), with contemporary electronic materials (e.g. capacitors and resistors), the exhibition will challenge viewers to reject and re-examine notions of cultural status.

    10:00 AM - 11:00 AM Wellness Workshop: Roommate Communication and Conflict Resolution
    This workshop addresses some of the common disputes and communication issues that can arise between roommates. Students will learn ways to communicate efficiently, and develop skills for handling conflict effectively. Students will get practical communication techniques that can be applied to roommate relationships, as well as other relationships in their lives. Workshops are free for all registered students, and registration is not required. Find the Wellness Education Centre below the Student Wellness Centre and down the hall from Veritas Café.

  • 4:30 PM - 6:30 PM Book Launch: Rumble and Crash: Crises of Capitalism in Contemporary Film

    Please join SUNY Press author Milo Sweedler to launch his new book Rumble and Crash: Crises of Capitalism in Contemporary Film.

    At the beginning of the twenty-first century, as the contradictions of capitalism became more apparent than they had been in the living memory of anyone born after the 1920s, numerous films gave allegorical form to the crises of contemporary capitalism. Some of the films were overtly political in nature, while others refracted the vicissitudes of capital in stories that did not, on the surface, have anything explicitly political about them. Milo Sweedler's Rumble and Crash: Crises of Capitalism in Contemporary Film (SUNY Press, 2019) examines six particularly rich and thought-provoking films in this vein. Analyzing four movies from before the global financial crisis of 2008 and two that allegorize the financial meltdown itself, Professor Sweedler's book explores the ways that films as different as bank-heist thriller like Spike Lee's Inside Man and an intimate psychological drama like Woody Allen's Blue Jasmine allegorize one of the defining crises of our time.

    "Milo Sweedler has produced what are surely the most original, provocative, and downright dazzling readings of a handful of socially significant and potent films released during the tumultuous years from 2005 to 2013. This is a fine book." – David Desser, former editor, Cinema Journal.
