Igudesman & Joo market themselves as a cross between West Side Story and The Simpsons, but to my ears, classical music’s Weird Al Yankovic more directly hits the mark. What if Mozart had arranged “I Will Survive?” Or if you turned “La Cucaracha” into a sonata? Sure it takes a bit of classical training to be in on the joke, but Igudesman & Joo’s brilliance lies in the execution, particularly the duo’s incredible musicianship and fine comic timing. Lord knows classical music deserves to have a little fun poked at it and arguably nobody does it with more humor and dedication to the music than these guys.
In conjunction with the exhibition “Altering Space,” the Southwest School of Art’s Photography Department Chair Victor Pagona discusses an evolution in creating and defining the landscape in contemporary art.
Kathy Armstrong curates a promising batch of photographers at the Russell Hill Rogers Gallery at the Southwest School of Art: Matthew Albanese (New York), Kim Keever (New York), Kila & Rusharc (UK), Seokmin Ko (South Korea), Scott Martin (San Antonio), John Pfahl (Buffalo) and Barry Underwood (Cleveland). Their common task was to construct, alter or recreate imaginary or re-invented landscapes, “whether through dioramas, hand-process or technology, and each photograph has a handmade component with visible evidence of that production.” Given the culture-wide preoccupation with meta-landscape, and the possibilities of digital technology, it’ll be difficult for this show not to be fascinating.
"The Evolution of Irrationality: Insights from Monkeys" is presented by Dr. Laurie Santos, as part of the Mind Science Foundation’s 2014 Distinguished Speakers Series. Over the past few years, Santos has examined the roots of human irrationality by studying the way our primate relatives make decisions. Her experiments in "monkeynomics" have shown that monkeys make some of the same silly financial choices as humans do. But her work has also revealed ways in which human choices are uniquely irrational - with monkeys sometimes making smarter choices than we do.
