Noah Breuer and Golnar Adili

Mid America Print Conference affiliated exhibit

Noah Breuer and Golnar Adili’s exhibition "Post-script" will present print-based works which address shared themes of family separation, immigration, and diaspora within their separate studio practices. Breuer and Adili each draw upon source material they collect from family archives and letters of correspondence. Recasting their imagery through myriad print methods and materials, their work seeks to bridge their past and contemporary familiar history and explore the fusion of traditional printmaking techniques and new materials and technology. This two-person exhibition will present artworks that directly address the 2022 MAPC Conference sub-theme of “Resilience” as it relates to family, loss and love.

Film Stills from the films of Richard Myers 

Ongoing through 2022

Richard Myers is an American filmmaker based in northeast Ohio. Myers makes highly personal, experimental, low-budget films. He holds a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree (1959) and a Master of Arts degree (1961), both from Kent State University in Kent, Ohio. Myers also taught at Kent State University in the art department beginning in 1964 and is particularly known for his 1970 film Confrontation at Kent State, which he filmed in Kent during the week following the Kent State shootings of May 4, 1970; it is an important document of the period.

Myers began to produce independent films in the early 1960s. Many of his films are highly personal, with non-narrative or loose narrative structures derived from his dreams. Myers is the recipient of two (due to a name spelling error) Guggenheim Fellowships as well as grants from the American Film Institute and the National Endowment for the Arts. The Academy Film Archive preserved several of Richard Myers' films, including AkranThe Path, and Allison Beth Krause. These Film Photo Stills were taken and gifted by Myers to the School of Art Collection at Kent State University.
