Hera Gallery
Another Kind of Music, Another Kind of Dance

An Evening of Video Art from Central Europe

Thursday, April 3rd, 7.30 pm

Hera Gallery is pleased to present "Another Kind of Music, Another Kind of Dance," an evening of central European video art hosted by Viera Levitt. Ms. Levitt is a former museum director and curator from the Slovak Republic, now living in Wakefield. She will give a talk in conjunction with the screenings. Ms. Levitt has selected pieces that deal with music and dance, but not in the way we might expect. There will be lyrical and haunting pieces of aged ballet dancers, of machines that dance to meditative music, of singing deaf children as well as the obsessive "dance" of a young prisoner. This talk and presentation is a continuation of Ms. Levitt's recent curatorial work at the galleries of the University of Rhode Island (www.vieralevitt.org/uri.htm).
Artists include Milena Dopitova (1963, Czech Republic), Artur Zmijewski (1966, Poland), Pavel Mrkus (1970, Czech Republic) and ) and Pavlina Fichta Cierna (b. 1967, Slovak Republic).

These programs are presented with partial support from The Rhode Island State Council on the Arts, Hera Educational Foundation, and The Friends of Hera. Special Thanks: Judith Tolnick Champa, Director of the Fine Arts Center Galleries, University of Rhode Island. Hera Gallery is free and open to the public and is accessible to persons with disabilities. Parking is available.
