March 2, 2017 at 5:00pm gallery talk; 5:30pm performanceLoïe Fuller (1862–1928) captivated fin-de-siècle Paris with her new form of dance consisting of multimedia spectacles of fabric, motion, and light. With her swirling costumes and specially engineered illuminations, she was a favorite subject of such visual artists as Jules Chéret and his followers Pal and Georges Meunier, whose depictions of her are featured in the exhibition Spectacle and Leisure in Paris: Degas to Mucha.

March 16, 2017 from 7:02am to 7:02pmArtistic Director Jody Sperling returns to UCLA's Department of Design Media Arts in a renewed collaboration with experimental media artist Amy-Claire Huestis and composer Omar Zubair with the new work Book of Clouds. This day-long performance-installation uses inventive light technologies, movement, and sonic composition to playfully sync to sky rhythms of sun, moon, human, cloud, bird, storm. The piece workshops a time outside the clock-rhythm of a faster disorienting world, offering ritual experiential practices of keen listening and prolonged investigation of nature.
