January 10 – March 7
Works by Angèlica Dass
In its Midwest debut, photographer Angélica Dass’ Humanae Project (January 10-March 6) is a “work in progress” that casts portraits of volunteers, devoid of any classification by race, age, gender, nationality, class or religion, against a backdrop of their skin’s Pantone® color. This ever-growing variegation catalogues these portraits in a random, yet rigid structure that strips away the false notion of superiority related to skin color.
Reception and Concert
In a special celebration of our Humanae project the acclaimed musical duo, “The Reminders” will perform an inspiring show, plus student artwork created in conjunction with Hector Acuna will be on display for this one night only. Click Learn More for details.
Exploring Identity – In Your Classroom
The SCA is inviting youth (grades 8th – 12th) to work exclusively with our winter visiting artist, Hector Acuna. Hector will curate conversation about skin color and ethnic identity to help students conceive and create original self-portraits puppetry that will be on display at the SCA, debuting at our Humanae event on Friday, February 28th, beginning at 5PM.
Hector Acuna is an artist living in Lansing, MI where he is currently pursuing his Master of Fine Arts degree from Michigan State University.
Through his studio practice, Hector investigates, and challenges notions of ethnicity and identity inspired by personal experiences and his family’s history in southeast Wisconsin.
