    A provocative exploration of one black man's memories of childhood. It interweaves Bradley's writing and photographs with pictures from his family archive. Part story, part lyrical investigation, "Dark Archives" aims to upset the linguistic and visual constrictions placed on black males. Bradley powerfully combines image and text in this deeply moving meditation on narrative agency, on the family as archive, on being a young black man, and on being Andre Bradley. Andre Bradley (b. 1987) lives and works in Philadelphia, PA. Bradley is a graduate of Hampshire College where he was selected in 2008 as a James Baldwin Scholar and in 2012, was a recipient of the first annual Elaine Mayes Award for Photography. Bradley received a Master's of Fine Art from the Rhode Island School of Design in 2015 where he was selected as a president's scholar and was recipient of the T.C. Colley Award for Photographic Excellence.

    On Thursday, March 23, Soprano Anne Harley will perform a recital of world premières in Garrison Theater at 7:30 p.m. entitled Female Esoterics in Song. Harley commissioned Karola Obermüller's PERSEVERE, a 20-minute work for voice, harp, and live electronics. This NEA ArtWorks commission juxtaposes the Ther?g?th? ['Verses of the Elder Nuns'], the oldest known collection of women's literature, in its original Pali language with Tibetan texts from female Tibetan esoterics. Moshe Shulman's Seven Prophetesses, a 2015 Fromm Foundation Commission, incorporates poetry written by poet Juli Varshavsky. Varshavsky's text describes the seven prophetesses in the Jewish tradition. The recital also features selections from Jodi Goble's song cycle Valentines from Amherst. The cycle won second place in the 2017 National Teachers of Singing's Annual Art Song Competition. Goble's work for solo voice and piano sets poetry by Emily Dickinson.
