Vesna Pavlović, associate professor of art, spent July in New Hampshire as a fellow at the MacDowell Colony, the oldest artists’ colony in the United States. Her spring exhibition, The Travellers: Voyage and Migration in New Art from Central and Eastern Europe, at Poland’s Zachęta National Gallery of Art, recently was selected by Artforum—an international monthly magazine specializing in contemporary art—as one of its “Critics’ Picks.”
The House That Jack Built, a stage play by Cecelia Tichi, Gertrude Conaway Vanderbilt Professor of English, was performed at the 6th Street Playhouse in Santa Rosa, California, Sept. 9–25. The play centers on a crisis in the life of American novelist and journalist Jack London—and the hidden drama few have known about. The script is drawn from research on Tichi’s recent book, Jack London: A Writer’s Fight for a Better America (2015, UNC Press).
