Franz West
Franz West (Austrian, 1947-2012) is known for willfully unserious, non-ideological, and sometimes mischievously erotic mixed-media drawings, sculptures, and furniture. Intentionally crude collages combine isolated figures from magazine ads with slapdash coats of thick paint and representations of the artists own work. His large colorful sculptures of lacquered aluminum reference and gleefully mock the usual formal decorum of abstract sculpture. This exhibition is drawn from the Hall Collection and presented in conjunction with the Hall Art Foundations installation of West's monumental outdoor sculpture Les Pommes d'Adam (2007) at MASS MoCA.

Mirror Visions Ensemble

Mirror Visions Ensemble performs at Williams as part of the music department's Visiting Artists Series.

AsThe New York Timesaptly stated in their May 2011 review, Unlike most chamber music enterprises, the Mirror Visions Ensemble is run by singers rather than instrumentalists, and its programs are shaped with an ear to the poetry of song texts rather than to overarching notions of musical style. The initial interest of the ensemble which is comprised of soprano Vira Slywotzky, tenor Scott Murphree and baritone Jesse Blumberg was the back-to-back performance of multiple settings of a single text. This led to programs built around favorite poets: Shakespeare, Verlaine, Dickinson and Heine, in particular.

A voice and a piano master class with Mirror Visions Ensemble is open to the public on September 26, at 4:15pm in Brooks-Rogers Recital Hall.
