This Is Not A Self Portrait

Saturday, February 15 - Saturday, March 29 All Day - Art Gallery (AG)
http://www.csun.edu/artgalleries

Opening Reception: Saturday, February 15  4-7 pm

Curator Talk: Monday, February 17  10 am

Panel Discussion with Artists and Catalog Signing: Saturday, March 22 1 pm


Curated by CSUNâs Art History Professor Mario Ontiveros, this exhibition focuses on eight Los Angeles-based artists who reconfigure the genre of self-portraiture. Utilizing their body, their likeness, and/or the intimately personal, the artists encourage an investigation into representation that lingers somewhere between its construction in response to material, psychic, and sociopolitical conditions and those personas that one imagines, shuns and/or desires. Artists include Michael Alvarez, Yreina Cervantez, Christina Fernández, Harry Gamboa Jr., Sandra de la Loza, Shizu Salamando, Ana Serrano and Mario Ybarra Jr. A full color catalog on the exhibition will be available for purchase.


Gallery and gift store hours are Monday through Saturday, from noon to 4 p.m., and on Thursday, from noon to 8 p.m. For more information, call CSUNâs Art Galleries at (818) 677-2156 or visit www.csun.edu/artgalleries.

Artistic director and legendary principal dancer of the Bolshoi Ballet, Sergei Radchenko presents an impressive recreation of Jules Perrot and Jean Coralli's masterpiece, which exemplifies the highest classic elements of grace, precision, and expression through movement witnessed in the perfection of the Moscow Festival Ballet.

Image for Moscow Festival Ballet: Chopiniana & Romeo and JulietMoscow Festival Ballet: Chopiniana & Romeo and Juliet

8:00 pm - 10:00 pm - Great Hall
http://www.valleyperformingartscenter.org/calendar/moscow-festival-ballet-chopiniana-and-romeo-and-juliet/?utm_source=CSUN&utm_medium=Calendar

This Valentine's evening the renowned Moscow Festival Ballet brings two of the most romantic classical works to the Valley Performing Arts Center. Often described as a "romantic reverie," Chopiniana portrays a dream-world where ballerinas bathed in moonlight dance around a young poet. The enchanting oeuvre is realized through the music of Chopin and the choreography of Mikhail Fokine. Shakespeare's tragic love story is beautifully danced to Tchaikovsky's majestic score and illuminated with brilliant choreography and radiant costumes in the grand tradition of Russian ballet.
