KSU College Of The Arts Announces 2019-2020 Season

KSU College Of The Arts Announces 2019-2020 Season

The College of the Arts at Kennesaw State University announced its 2019-2020 season today, featuring over 100 events in art and design, dance, music, and theatre and performance studies. New this year are special research in the arts lectures open to the public as well as ArtsKSU Presents, an exciting professional series featuring internationally renowned artists and companies.

Dr. Ivan Pulinkala, dean of the College of the Arts, said, "We are committed to preparing our students for the professional practices in the arts as both scholars and artists, through engagement with our outstanding faculty and visiting artists. ArtsKSU will present world-renowned performers and artists across all four academic units, enriching the arts ecology of Atlanta."

Highlights for the Department of Theatre and Performance Studies include Daughter of a Cuban Revolutionary: Marissa Chibas and The Q Brothers presenting a new way to experience Shakespeare with Othello: The Remix, retold through lively and engaging rap and hip-hop. The Department of Dance is bringing Charlotte Ballet's Walking Mad to Atlanta audiences, highlighting amazing athleticism, breathtaking beauty, and boundless energy.

GRAMMY-nominated clarinetist-saxophonist Anat Cohen will also bring boundless energy along with her Tentet (rhythm section, horns, vibraphone, cello and accordion) as they take the stage of the Bailey Performance Center in the School of Music to play their music, some of which is influenced from Brazilian music and African grooves to vintage swing and touching ballads. The School of Art and Design's Zuckerman Museum of Art will kick off the fall of 2019 with the exhibition Painting Who? that focuses on paintings that serve multiple roles. Not quite sculpture, this work stretches-but does not break-the traditional boundaries of painting.

In addition to the ArtsKSU Presents professional artist season, the College of the Arts is also offering several research-based lectures that are free and open to the public. Don't miss The Aesthetic Brain, a lecture by Dr. Anjan Chatterjee discussing his groundbreaking research using neurology to advance our understanding of the evolution, production, and appreciation of art.
