Anna Ludwig – Exhibit opening

anna ludwigAnna Ludwig is a Bay Area artist whose subject matter ranges from the socio-political to the supernatural. Her practice includes painting, drawing, mixed media and installation work. Anna was awarded an East Bay Fund for Artists Grant to create a public art installation, which premiered in September 2012 at the Capoeira Mandinga Academy in Oakland. Anna earned her M.F.A. from the California College of Arts in San Francisco and her B.A. in studio art from Harvard.

Anna lives in Oakland with her husband Sam, whom she met through her study of the Afro-Brazilian martial art of capoeira. She loves teaching art to both kids and adults. Anna regularly exhibits her work at Lee Hansley Gallery in her hometown of Raleigh, North Carolina, and at Art on the Balcony in Oakland. She was recently featured in “Anna Ludwig: Afterimages” in Guernica, a journal of art and politics. Her work has been exhibited throughout the San Francisco Bay Area, in New York, Boston and Cambridge, at the Corcoran Gallery in Washington, D.C. and at the North Carolina Museum of Art. Internationally, her work has been shown at TUMULT in Vordingsbord, Denmark and at Kunstalle Zu Kiel in Kiel, Germany.

Anna Ludwig’s exhibit at La Peña, resistência, will explore the connections between two bodies of work: a series of oil paintings featuring capoeira, and a series of watercolors examining traces of 1960’s counter culture left on the Bay Area landscape. The energy of an event leaves a stain on the place in which it occurs. Rooted in this concept, Anna’s work engages with the subjectivity of histories of political protest and resistance to oppression. For visual references, Anna uses the physical sites of political action as well as associated documentary images. In 2009, she began creating a series of watercolor paintings and other works examining People’s Park as a stain on the Berkeley landscape. From there she has continued to make work about the traces left on Golden Gate Park by the summer of love.

The Shooting of James RectorAnna was led to this body of work by way of capoeira. In 2006, Anna began a series of oil paintings from photographs of her friends playing capoeira, hoping to record an elusive feeling. In capoeira’s history, the body of the capoeira practitioner, or capoeirista, was a site of protest, of resistance to the oppression of slavery. When watching an exquisite game of capoeira, it seemed to her that this history of resistance inhabited the bodies of the contemporary capoeiristas. Understanding capoeira in this way inspired Anna to make work about the Bay Area’s history of political protest.

What if everyone in the world stopped using technology for one day?

 

the Joshua Walters (NPR Storyteller and TED Speaker) presents…

UNPLUG!

With the rate of technological advance, the world is becoming a faster, a more connected, and a more chaotic place. We are at a pinnacle moment in human history in which we can know everything and have our voices felt everywhere, but at what cost? What if everyone in the world stopped using technology for one day? To feel the effect on our minds, emotions, and connection to the divine: UNPLUG!

Layering improv, music, and comedy, the Unplug! experience will transport the audience to different time periods over the course of three acts which explores the spectrum of technology throughout human history, and is accompanied by a live music ensemble. The first act starts in a time of alienation where the digital is all that is known. Next, the second act explores the turning point of the industrial age, when tools become tactics. Conclusively, the third act depicts a time before screens and electricity, where every night is filled with story and song.

At the core of the play, Unplug! expresses the message of creating and preserving time for family and connection with the community. In the spirit unplugging, the audience will be asked to mask their cell phone usage with an individual unplug bag. The phones will be used for one last Instagram picture, and everyone will then ditch the technology for the rest of the night.

Curious Bay Area residents will have a chance to get their questions answered about Unplug! in a twitter Q&A with Joshua Walters. Anyone who has a question should tweet to @joshuawalters, and use the hashtag, #unplug. Participants can tune in on Wednesday, Nov 5 @ 7pm to find out if their questions have been answered.

About Joshua Walters:

Joshua Walters of Madhouse Rhythm, (((JawVox))), and soon to be UnPlug, is a performer who explores language, creativity, beatboxing and madness. His solo shows are a mash-up of comedy, intimate reflection and unpredictable antics. He is a regular contributor to Snap Judgment a weekly storytelling radio show on NPR with TV broadcasts on PBS. Walters was one of three speakers selected from a pool of 600 applicants to perform a TED Talk, titled On Being Crazy Enough, exploring the Bipolar Spectrum.

Walters’ work is both YouTube sensation (1.2M+ views), and critical success (“a warped reflection of our very real foibles, in the funniest possible way.”-San Francisco Chronicle). For his latest solo work, “UnPlug!”, Walters collaborates with 2011 Alpert Award winner Marc Bamuthi Joseph to launch into the chaotic nirvana of a global day without technology. Part stand-up, part hip hop aria, the piece moves from brave new future to shamanic past with velocity, humor, and intelligent funk. His eclectic combination of performance disciplines and activity as an educator in mental health has given Walters a national platform and audience. Walters is a National Alliance for Mental Illness (NAMI) State Speaker and in 2002, he co-founded the Depression Bipolar Support Alliance (DBSA) Young Adults Chapter in San Francisco, one of the few support groups specifically for mentally ill young adults in the country.
