STS9 Announces New ‘Wave Spell Live’ Festival At Las Vegas Closer [Photos]

first_imgPhoto: Erik Kabik STS9 will host Wave Spell Live, a small four-day camping festival in Belden Town, CA from August 16th to 19th. The news was announced on Sunday night following the third and final show of the band’s three-night stand at Brooklyn Bowl Las Vegas.At this time, all of the details we have come from a notice that read:Wave Spell Live In Belden Town, CASave The Date Aug 16-19, 2018An intimate camping festival event. Featuring 9 sets of STS9 (3 full shows and for the first time 3 live Wave Spell performances). Others artists and activities to be announced. More information coming soon.Interestingly, it looks like Tribe will play three “Wave Spell” sets in addition to three full, two-set shows at their new festival.  If the band’s two Wave Spell releases—which both dropped earlier this year—are any indication, these three sets will be entirely improvised.As STS9 explained in January, “Wave Spell is STS9 in its rawest form. Where we don’t talk about what we want to play, we just try and tap in to the moment and let the music happen. It’s a conversation where we speak solely with our instruments. A time where we’re completely free to explore.”While Wave Spell Live comes as a big surprise, the event won’t mark STS9’s first foray into the festival production arena. Back in 2007, the group hosted their own Re:Generation Festival at Deerfields in North Carolina, and another edition was held at Oregon’s Horning’s Hideout in 2011. A third Re:Generation was planned for 2012, but the event was canceled one month before it was set to take place.You can also take a look at Erik Kabik‘s photos from STS9’s Las Vegas run below.STS9 | Brooklyn Bowl Las Vegas | Las Vegas, NV | 5/6/18 | Photos: Erik Kabik Photo: Erik Kabik Photo: Erik Kabikcenter_img Photo: Erik Kabik Load remaining imageslast_img read more

Soyoung Lee named chief curator at Art Museums

first_imgThe Harvard Art Museums has appointed Soyoung Lee, a curator at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, as its new chief curator, effective Sept. 24.Over the course of a distinguished 15-year career, Lee has served Met as curator, associate curator, and assistant curator in the department of Asian art. She joined the museum in 2003 as its first curator for Korean art, and has organized a number of critically acclaimed international loan exhibitions, each with an accompanying publication.“We are welcoming Soyoung to our staff at an exciting time, as we further establish our dual role as a premier teaching institution and one of the major public art museums in the dynamic Boston cultural landscape,” said Martha Tedeschi, the Elizabeth and John Moors Cabot Director of the Harvard Art Museums. “We are thrilled to have such a well-respected and gifted art historian join our curatorial team. Her experience as both a leader and scholar will be great assets as we continue to develop distinctive exhibition, publishing, and interpretive programs that leverage the wide-ranging nature of the museums’ remarkable collections.”In 2016–17, Lee served as chair of the Metropolitan Museum’s Forum of Curators, Conservators, and Scientists — the Met’s academic body, comprised of more than 200 members — and as the forum’s delegate to the Board of Trustees a year later. She was a member of the museum’s Diversity and Inclusion Task Force and the Ad Hoc Advisory Committee to the President. She was also a trustee-at-large for the Association of Art Museum Curators and one of 12 fellows in the Center for Curatorial Leadership’s 2018 cohort.Lee has received numerous fellowships and grants, including the Met’s Theodore Rousseau Memorial Travel Grant in summer 2006 and March 2010, the Jane and Morgan Whitney Art History Fellowship in 2001–02, and the Columbia University President’s Fellowship in 2000–01.“It is a tremendous honor to join the Harvard Art Museums, an institution with such incredible collections, history, and creativity. I am delighted to work alongside Martha and the museums’ stellar staff and am excited by the opportunities to collaborate across this extraordinary university,” said Lee. “While at the Met, I was fortunate to have been nurtured by a wealth of talented and generous colleagues. I look forward to bringing that experience to Harvard, to cultivate in the next generation the kind of passion for art and knowledge that can transform one’s life.”At the Harvard Art Museums, Lee will be a key member of the senior leadership team. She will oversee the museums’ three curatorial divisions (division of Asian and Mediterranean art, division of European and American art, and division of modern and contemporary art), an active exhibition program, and the stewardship and development of Harvard’s world-class collections, among the largest in the U.S.Working closely with the Department of Academic and Public Programs and the Straus Center for Conservation and Technical Studies, Lee will build on the museums’ legacy as a premier training and teaching institution, facilitating curatorial collaborations with faculty and students across disciplines and fostering the internship and postgraduate fellowship programs. She will also play a critical role in the museums’ efforts to partner with campus organizations in highlighting contemporary art and current issues through exhibitions, programs, and other projects with living artists.Born in Jakarta, Indonesia, Lee has lived in Stockholm, London, Los Angeles, Seoul, and Tokyo in addition to her current home in New York. She earned her B.A., M.A., and Ph.D. in art history from Columbia University. Her dissertation examined the influence of 15th- and 16th-century Korean ceramics on key ceramic industries in Kyushu, Japan, and subsequent Japanese reinterpretations. Her research interests encompass cross-cultural exchanges in East Asian art and culture.last_img read more

Top UK cardinal Keith O’Brien resigns

first_imgFaithInternationalLifestylePrint Top UK cardinal Keith O’Brien resigns by: – February 25, 2013 35 Views   no discussions Share Share Tweetcenter_img Share Sharing is caring! Britain’s most senior Roman Catholic cleric, Cardinal Keith O’Brien, is stepping down as leader of the Scottish Catholic Church. He had been accused of inappropriate behaviour towards priests dating back to the 1980s, claims he contests. Cardinal O’Brien, the Archbishop of St Andrews and Edinburgh, apologised to “all whom I have offended” for “any failures” during his ministry.He will not take part in electing a new pope, leaving Britain unrepresented. The Vatican confirmed the cardinal has stepped down from his post.The Scottish Catholic Media Office said Pope Benedict had accepted the cardinal’s resignation on 18 February, but the announcement of it has only just been made.Cardinal O’Brien said in a statement he had already tendered his resignation as Archbishop of St Andrews and Edinburgh, due to take effect when he turned 75 next month, but Pope Benedict “has now decided that my resignation will take effect today”.He said the Pope would appoint someone to govern the archdiocese in his place until his successor was appointed. The cardinal also said: “I have valued the opportunity of serving the people of Scotland and overseas in various ways since becoming a priest. “Looking back over my years of ministry: For any good I have been able to do, I thank God. For any failures, I apologise to all whom I have offended.“I do not wish media attention in Rome to be focused on me – but rather on Pope Benedict XVI and on his successor. “However, I will pray with them and for them that, enlightened by the Holy Spirit, they will make the correct choice for the future good of the Church.”Allegations madeThe Observer reported that the three priests and one former priest, from the diocese of St Andrews and Edinburgh, complained to the Pope’s representative to Britain, nuncio Antonio Mennini. In the week before 11 February, when Pope Benedict resigned, they made claims about the cardinal’s inappropriate behaviour towards them in the 1980s:• The former priest claims Cardinal O’Brien made an inappropriate approach to him in 1980, after night prayers, when he was a seminarian at St Andrew’s College, Drygrange. The complainant says he resigned as a priest when Cardinal O’Brien was first made a bishop• A second statement from another complainant says he was living in a parish when he was visited by O’Brien, and inappropriate contact took place between them• A third complainant alleges dealing with what he describes as “unwanted behaviour” by the cardinal in the 1980s after some late-night drinking• And the fourth complainant claims the cardinal used night prayers as an excuse for inappropriate contactIn Rome, the BBC’s world affairs correspondent James Robbins said for a long time the Vatican had been able to “bat away” some criticism of other cardinals who may have been involved in covering up allegations of sexual abuse. But these were more serious because they alleged Cardinal O’Brien was involved directly in improper behaviour towards other priests. He added that there was also a sense of regret that Britain would have no voice in the conclave to choose Pope Benedict’s successor.Catherine Deveney, who wrote the Observer story, said it was important because the cardinal had set a “moral blueprint” for the way other people should lead their lives. She said the complainants were “men of integrity” who had “done a difficult thing and acted according to their conscience”. Scotland’s First Minister Alex Salmond said: “It would be a great pity if a lifetime of positive work was lost from comment in the circumstances of his resignation. “None of us know the outcome of the investigation into the claims made against him but I have found him to be a good man for his church and country.”Jack Valero, from Catholic Voices, a media lobby group that represents many Catholics in Britain, said it was the right move for the cardinal to resign. “I am very happy that they have been taken seriously, that the nuncio – the Pope’s representative in the UK – has written to the four people who have made the allegations to thank them for speaking out, and that the whole thing has been done so quickly. I think this shows a new spirit.”Colin MacFarlane, director of gay rights group Stonewall Scotland, which last year named the cardinal as Bigot of the Year said he hoped there would be a full investigation. And that the cardinal’s successor should “show a little more Christian charity towards openly gay people than the cardinal did himself”.But Clifford Longley, a religious commentator and columnist for the Catholic newspaper The Tablet, said the cardinal’s resignation was “the worst thing that could possibly have happened to the Church at this moment – to have another row like this when there already so many going on.”BBC Newslast_img read more

Latest Slam loss for Williams comes at Wimbledon

first_imgSerena Williams of U.S. plays a return to Alize Cornet of France during their women’s singles match at the All England Lawn Tennis Championships in Wimbledon, London, Saturday, June 28, 2014. (AP Photo/Sang Tan)LONDON (AP) — As Serena Williams began to fall behind in what would become her earliest Wimbledon exit in nearly a decade, her coach could tell something was awry.Not the so-so serving. Or the bad backhands. This was a larger problem.“Right now, she doesn’t have her usual ability to respond and turn matches around,” said Patrick Mouratoglou, who has worked with Williams since 2012. “It was obvious when she trailed 3-0 in the second set. Nothing happened.”Unable to get back on track once she no longer had control of the match, five-time Wimbledon champion Williams lost to 25th-seeded Alize Cornet of France 1-6, 6-3, 6-4 on Saturday in the third round, the latest in a recent series of surprising Grand Slam defeats.“If I’m not playing a great, great match, these girls, when they play me, they play as if they’re on the ATP Tour,” Williams said, rolling her eyes.She hadn’t left Wimbledon so soon since 2005, also beaten in the third round. The No. 1-ranked and top-seeded Williams owns 17 Grand Slam titles, one fewer than Martina Navratilova and Chris Evert, but has departed before the quarterfinals at four of the past five majors. There were fourth-round losses at Wimbledon last year and the Australian Open in January, and a second-round loss at the French Open in May.“It might be a bit premature to talk about her decline, but when she plays someone who finds the right tactics, she looks a bit lost on the court,” Cornet said. “In my opinion, there are more and more players understanding how to play her.”Cornet also beat the 32-year-old American at the Dubai Championships in February, and watched video clips of that triumph before playing Saturday.“I just knew that I could do it, because I did it once,” Cornet said.Still, this result was rather unexpected, given that Cornet never had been past the third round at Wimbledon, and only once before reached a major’s fourth round.“I cannot say that I played my best tennis today, really,” Cornet said.Perhaps, but it was good enough. On match point, after one last drop shot drew a netted response from Williams, Cornet pounded a fist on her chest, hopped around Court 1, then knelt to kiss the turf.“It’s very symbolic, because it means, ‘Now I love you grass, and I didn’t before,’” said Cornet, who had been 0-13 against top-20 opponents at majors.Saturday’s match was halted in the third game because of showers. When they returned about 4 1/2 hours later — “the rain delay killed me a little bit,” Cornet said — Williams was terrific, reeling off five games to grab the first set.Then everything changed, because Williams couldn’t find the mark. She finished with 29 unforced errors, 11 more than Cornet. Two particular strokes let Williams down: Her serve, with seven double-faults and five breaks; and her backhand, with 12 unforced errors.“I don’t really know what I did wrong,” said a blank-faced Williams, whose sister Venus lost Friday. “Usually I do. Usually I know I did this, this, and that.”It was by far the most significant outcome on a day full of starts and stops.Three other past Wimbledon champions won on Centre Court, where the roof was closed and soccer star David Beckham was in the Royal Box: Rafael Nadal, Roger Federer and Maria Sharapova.For his third match in a row, Nadal dropped the first set, this time beating 63rd-ranked Mikhail Kukushkin of Kazakhstan 6-7 (4), 6-1, 6-1, 6-1.“All his shots just started to be much more hard, powerful and more aggressive,” Kukushkin said. “It was like a different player.”Sharapova trailed 3-1, then won the next 11 games to top 44th-ranked Alison Riske of the United States 6-3, 6-0.Federer, who has collected seven of his 17 major trophies at Wimbledon, never faced trouble and eliminated 35th-ranked Santiago Giraldo of Colombia 6-3, 6-1, 6-3.Nadal next faces 19-year-old Australian Nick Kyrgios; Federer meets No. 23 Tommy Robredo; and No. 8 Milos Raonic, only the second Canadian man in the Open era to get to Wimbledon’s fourth round, plays either No. 10 Kei Nishikori or Simone Bolelli, whose match was suspended because of darkness.Cornet’s fourth-round opponent when the tournament resumes Monday after the traditional middle Sunday off is No. 13 Eugenie Bouchard, a 20-year-old Canadian who was a semifinalist at the year’s first two majors.“It shows all of you who asked me if I’m ready to play Serena in Round 4,” Bouchard said. “That’s one of the reasons I don’t look far ahead.”___Follow Howard Fendrich on Twitter at http://twitter.com/HowardFendrichlast_img read more
