61 Atlantic Street, Stamford, CT 06901. Phone: 12033251407.

8 pm. Imagine walking out onto a blank stage. There is no script, no set, no preconceived ideas. Suddenly the stage lights flash and the show starts. Some call this the Actor's nightmare, others call it Improvisational Theatre.

This show is a creation of the collective lunatic unconscious of both actors and audience. They've done their part; they haven't prepared a thing. It's now time for you to do your part. Just sit back, relax and get ready to call out whatever is on your mind...a word...a phrase...an idea. Audience, start your engines!

Bruce Museum - Bruce Beginnings Evening Lecture. Building Dreamworlds, Facing Catastrophes: Art, Science, and the Cold War

02/27/2018

One Museum Drive, Greenwich, CT Phone: 203-869-0376.

6:30 – 8:00 pm. Evening Lecture. Building Dreamworlds, Facing Catastrophes: Art, Science, and the Cold War, by Ksenia Nouril, Dodge Fellow, Zimmerli Art Museum and PhD Candidate, Department of Art History, Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey.
Nouril will examine how artists in the Soviet Union responded to advancements in the sciences during the late Cold War period (1960s-1980s). Highlighting several key works of art from the exhibition Hot Art in a Cold War: Intersections of Art and Science in the Soviet Era, Nouril will show how artists working in the Soviet republics of Russia, Ukraine, Estonia, and Latvia were both directly and indirectly inspired by science, math, engineering, and design. While many embraced progress in hope of a better life, some were wary of its consequences. The paintings, sculptures, photographs, and drawings they produced make prescient proposals that are still applicable to our world today.
Reception at 6:30 pm; talk 7:00 – 8:00 pm. Admission in advance: Free for Bruce members and students (with valid ID), $15 for nonmembers. At the door: $10 members, $25 nonmembers. Reservations at brucemuseum.org/site/events.
