Ester Partegàs's sculptures, images and installations recreate mass-produced objects and generic public spaces – spaces characterized by the flow of commercial transactions, consumption, disposal and loss. Employing processes that entail direct contact with an original – casting, printing, copying and tracing – the works examine the most unassuming details of everyday life as a record of shared affective, social, political and metaphysical connections between people and things. Her work has been shown at El Paso Museum of Art/Museo de Arte Ciudad Juárez, Mexico; Museum of the City, New York; and MACBA, Barcelona.

Ester Partegàs is a Catalan visual artist and educator. She lives and works in New York.

<![CDATA[Dalí: Poetics of the Small, 1929–1936]]>Arts Visuals. Dallas, 09/12/2018
Research undertaken upon the Meadows’ 2014 acquisition of Salvador Dalí’s painting The Fish Man (L’homme poisson, 1930) opened doors to areas within Dalí’s 1930s oeuvre worthy of further study; foremost among them, Dalí’s propensity for painting on a small scale. Dalí: Poetics of the Small, 1929–1936, is the first exhibition on the artist to focus solely on his small-format works.

Bilingualism has long been a provocative term in Catalonia, where the concept is more often treated as ideological dogma than as a description of linguistic fact. This issue will be approached by Kathryn Woolard of the University of California, San Diego, while Antoni Rodriguez-Fornells will talk about the cognitive and neural mechanisms involved in the hard process of learning a second language. These studies are essential to understand how the brain of bilinguals is sculpted, and can be used to improve language teaching and the design of educational programs.

<![CDATA[Dancer Cesc Gelabert premieres Framing Time in New York City]]>Escèniques. New York, 02/11/2018
Framing Time is a quietly thrilling meditation on music, light, and movement centered on Morton Feldman's 1981 solo piano piece Triadic Memories. Feldman's spare, mystical piano piece--a work the composer described as the "biggest butterfly in captivity"--merges with an intricate color and light interplay, joined by dance and sculptural elements. Vividly rendered by pianist Pedja Muzijevic, the shifting colors and elastic tempos of Feldman's painterly music are transformed into acute, poetic movement by Spanish choreographer and dancer Cesc Gelabert, with set and lighting design by Burke Brown.

Framing Time (World Premiere)

Thursday Nov 1 and Friday Nov 2, at 8:00pm

Running time: 60 minutes
