Jennifer Levonian: Shake Out Your Cloth opens

September 30
Jepson Center,
207 W York St
Savannah, 31401 United States

Jennifer Levonian’s work transforms the fabric of the everyday into the fantastical—or at the very least, the hilarious. In the exhibition Shake Out Your Cloth, Levonian presents a recent cut-paper animation titled Xylophone, as well as three quilts loosely inspired by the protagonist of the video. Painstakingly crafted from hundreds of individual watercolors, her stop-motion animations often feature a character trying to break free from social rituals and clichés.

Complex Uncertainties opens

September 30
Jepson Center,
207 W York St
Savannah, 31401 United States

From the rise of America as a world superpower after WWII—and with it, a distinctly individual and identifiably “American” approach to artmaking—to the proliferation of technologies that homogenize American culture today, artists have always been at the forefront of social response. Complex Uncertainties is an evolving exhibition grounded by works in Telfair’s modern and contemporary collection that sheds light on these responses and reveals some of the ways in which historic events challenge artists to explore unknowns, construct narratives, and react to power.

The Tsars’ Cabinet opens

September 30
Jepson Center,
207 W York St
Savannah, 31401 United States

The Tsars’ Cabinet illuminates a period of sociopolitical change and comments on the fascinating personal lives of the members of the Romanov dynasty through a display of superbly crafted objects. Spanning 200 years of Russian history—from Peter the Great in the early 18th century to Nicholas II in the early 20th century—these objects, used both publicly and privately by the Romanovs, rise above functionality into the realm of art through ornate stylistic expression, exemplary craft, and thematic explorations of nationalism and militarism.

Film: Lo and Behold: Reveries of the Connected World

October 6 | 7:00 pm
Jepson Center,
207 W York St
Savannah, 31401 United States

In collaboration with Cinema Savannah, Telfair presents the new film by acclaimed director Werner Herzog, Lo and Behold: Reveries of the Connected World. Herzog’s new documentary focuses on the internet, perhaps the most world-changing technological development since World War II. In this film, the Oscar-nominated director chronicles the virtual world from its origins to its outermost reaches, exploring the digital landscape with the same curiosity and imagination that he previously trained on earthly destinations as disparate as the Amazon, the Sahara, the South Pole, and the Australian outback. Herzog leads viewers on a journey through a series of provocative conversations that reveal the ways in which the online world has transformed how virtually everything in reality works—from business, to healthcare, to our personal relationships.
