Let's CU Well will include a featured research presentation from Kim Dickey, Q&A and a wellness participation challenge.
Join in person at the Chancellor's Hall in CASE or online through our Zoom live-stream.
Dickey describes her topic this way: "Learning to “pay attention” is fundamental to arts education. It provides opportunities to encounter our surroundings more closely, to connect to histories through material exploration and to understand that every act of attention has the potential to shift our perception of the world we live in." Dickey will share how her creative projects foreground the value of art as that of making space, as well as how almost any act of making can acknowledge and honor our relations with others.

Jeanne Liotta, Associate Professor, Cinema Studies & Moving Image Arts
Solo exhibition at the Microscope Gallery, NYC, The World is a Picture of The World, featuring a new body of work incorporating drawing, collage, photography and projection that are inspired by and often include among their materials 20th Century NASA 35mm slides of the universe that were frequently offered in planetarium and other similar gift shops.
And a simultaneous show at the Armory Show 2021
Exhibited at the Amory Show: "Photographic light box collages by Liotta point to natural phenomenon — especially astronomical events — that are not only directly involved in the making of the artworks but are used to suggest larger environmental concerns such as climate change, global warming and the positive and negative contributions of humans and their technologies on the planet and beyond."
Marina Kassianidou, Assistant Professor, Painting and Drawing
Exhibition: Intermission Museum of Art | Archive: Volume I
Stand4 Gallery, Brooklyn, NY, USA
September 10 – October 23, 2021
Featuring collaborations from: Jodi Hays + Ayanah Moor | Lindiwe Matshikiza + Flora Parrott | Lynn Silverman + Jason Sloan | Mira Dayal + Marina Kassianidou | Lauren K. Alleyne + Matthew Fischer | Mike Cloud + Nyeema Morgan | Aurora de Armendi + Jessica del Vecchio | Kate Casanova + Sarah Faye McPherson | Jaimini Patel + Carli Toliver | Ana Čavić + Sally Morfill | Rose van Mierlo + John Ros
This group exhibition represents a new collaboration between Stand4 Gallery and Intermission Museum of Art (IMA) whereby hosting the digital archive, Stand4 Gallery becomes IMA and vice versa. As a fictional museum and performative project, IMA challenges the status quo on the social role of museums by engaging with its fictional structures of operation. It explores the tangible effects fictionality has in the social and economic world and suggests alternative models of exhibiting while sparking meaningful conversations. Its online form enables IMA to exist in several places at once and reach multiple audiences. It is neither real nor unreal, but can be read as a critical text. Its second form is performative: IMA is both artwork and museum. It can only exist through the hospitality of others.
Union Hall, Denver
Thursday, September 9 from 6-8 PM

Chain Letter is a group exhibition co-curated by artist Alexander Richard Wilson and Union Hall’s Chief Curator Ari Myers (CU Alumna, MA 2017), featuring the work of Jason Abrams, Micah Dillman, Eseosa Edebiri, Cory Feder, Madeline Job, Grace Kennison, and Alexander Richard Wilson. Opening on September 9, 2021, just days before the 20th anniversary of September 11, 2001, this exhibition includes a group of millennial artists hailing from around the country, over half of which are currently Denver-based. This exhibition attempts to gently reveal something about our current moment, where promises about American Exceptionalism have come unwoven for many. This is felt poignantly by the millennial generation, who feel toned by the pages of history, re-reading diligently and then making edits for clarity and honesty in the present with contemporary hands and eyes.
Selected as a 2021 emerging artist. SculptureX Symposium 2021: Art and Agency 2, Pittsburgh, PA
Dennis will be showing, participating, performing in the symposium Sept. 16-18
Through an interdisciplinary and multisensory practice, Dennis seeks to elucidate the invisible lines of molecular materiality that bind us and investigate what implications these chemical markers have for identity, community, and ecology.
The 12th SculptureX Symposium, Art & Agency 2, explores the ways artists are establishing contemporary sculpture practices that connect and interact broadly, often bypassing disciplinary, even national boundaries in their attempts to reshape the world.
