Photo by Manuel VasonThe Mike Kelley Foundation for the Arts announced today the 2017 recipients of its Artist Project Grants, an initiative in its second year which seeks to further Mike Kelley’s philanthropic work and honor his legacy by supporting innovative projects with artists at Los Angeles nonprofit institutions and organizations.Benefitting both artists and organizations, the grants support compelling and inventive projects in any medium, particularly work that is lesser-known or has proven difficult to make or fund. This year’s grantees are Human Resources/356 S. Mission Rd.; The Industry; La Plaza de Cultura y Artes; REDCAT (Roy and Edna Disney/CalArts Theater); The Society for the Activation of Social Space through Art and Sound (SASSAS); University Art Museum, California State University, Long Beach; Vincent Price Art Museum, and Pasadena Arts Council/Volume.“These artists and organizations exemplify the ambitious and imaginative spirit of this grant,” said Mary Clare Stevens, Executive Director of the Foundation. “From new works—such as Liz Glynn’s sculptural stage set of fire and steel—to the first-ever performance of the late composer James Tenney’s magnum opus, to critical examinations of art history, the projects reflect the remarkable scope and variety of artistic and curatorial practices in Los Angeles.”The recipients include a diverse range of small and mid-size organizations, which will highlight a mix of individual practices, collaborations and group exhibitions. Regeneración: Three Generations of Revolutionary Ideology, a research-driven exhibition at the Vincent Price Museum, explores three generations of Los Angeles artists engaged in the exchange of revolutionary and anarchist ideas between the U.S. and Mexico and will also feature new works by four artists.“It is especially poignant at this moment in American and Mexican history to place Los Angeles’s lineage of social movements into context,” said participating Regeneración artist Patricia Valencia. “The grant will extend both the cultural scholarship and grassroots awareness of these histories. By realizing the project at the museum, which is part of East Los Angeles College, and in a predominantly Mexican-American community, I hope that the question of ‘What comes next?’ will be raised to a new generation.”Conceptual artist lauren woods uses history as a lens through which to view the social politics of the present. In her hybrid media projects, which incorporate film, video, sound, public intervention, and site-specific work, she creates ethno-fictive documents and explores how traditional monument-making can be translated into new models of commemoration. Her exhibition at the University Art Museum, California State University, Long Beach will be part of a long-term focus conceived of by the newly appointed director of the museum, Kimberli Meyer, which concentrates on artists practicing outside hegemonic systems.“When the news came in that this vision would be supported by the Mike Kelley Foundation, I felt tangible relief to know that despite the radical, almost overnight shift in the political climate of our country, there are people and institutions in the arts—allies—willing to not only continue to engage and call attention to the sociopolitical issues that my practice is deeply invested in addressing, but also to push forth an agenda that commits to the protracted struggle to end structural injustice,” noted woods.The 2017 cohort of grantees were selected through a competitive application process by a panel of artists, curators, and art writers, which included Charles Gaines, Gene Moreno, Frances Stark, Astria Suparak, and Jan Tumlir. Totaling $319,000, the grants cover project-related expenses, allow for a modest portion of the organization’s overhead costs, and recognize the participating artists with a dedicated fee. The grant-funded projects will take place throughout 2017–2018, and the Foundation will share updates on performances and exhibitions on its website.“When Mike Kelley established the Foundation in 2007, he aimed to encourage expansiveness and fearlessness in all disciplines. As funding for the arts is shrinking, this charge is more vital than ever. It is an honor to be able to support and celebrate the artists and the arts organizations that will present these remarkable projects,” said Stevens.For organizations interested in applying for the next round of Artist Project Grants, updated information for the 2018 cycle will be posted later this spring on the Foundation’s website (last year’s guidelines remain there for reference only).For more information about Mike Kelley Foundation for the Arts, visit www.mikekelleyfoundation.org.

3 tips for having good work relationships

first_img 33SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr,John Pettit John Pettit is the Managing Editor for CUInsight.com. John manages the content on the site, including current news, editorial, press releases, jobs and events. He keeps the credit union … Web: www.cuinsight.com Details It’s good to enjoy your work. It’s also good to enjoy those people you work with. If your work relationships aren’t what they should be, here are a few tips to turn those into healthy, productive work relationships.Be respectful: People tend to respect those who have given them respect. Your coworkers will know when you’ve zoned out or aren’t quite being upfront and honest with them. Do your best to be sincere, and pay attention when someone is trying to convey a message. Knowing you’re not being heard can be a frustrating thing when you’re on a team.Nip it in the bud: There will be disagreements in your work relationships. People see things differently and have completely different ideas about the best way to accomplish work goals. Talk things out, find resolutions, and if that doesn’t work, find a neutral 3rd party who can help mediate. Your mom always said “never go to bed angry,” and this is a good motto for relationships with coworkers. Always try and resolve issues as quickly and pleasantly as possible.Don’t get too personal: Bringing too much of your personal business into the office can be distracting and interfere with the job at hand. You want your relationships to be good, but you also need to keep work the top priority.last_img read more

first_imgAbout the authorPaul VegasShare the loveHave your say Arsenal boss Emery takes squad out for ‘unity’ dinnerby Paul Vegasa month agoSend to a friendShare the loveArsenal boss Unai Emery is demanding unity from his players.The Sun says he ordered Arsenal players to show “solidarity” to the outside world during a team dinner called straight after the Watford debacle.Gunners stars dined at trendy Mayfair restaurant Novikov with the management following their catastrophic defensive performance in the 2-2 draw at Vicarage Road.In an attempt to salvage team spirit, under-pressure boss Emery told his squad that the critics were watching for their reaction.The Spaniard ordered them to put on a united front — despite huge cracks and factions developing within the dressing room.Emery wants to portray the image that the players all get on and are a tightly-knit unit.But that could not be further from the truth after skipper Granit Xhaka claimed Arsenal’s players were “scared”.According to Arsenal insiders, there is a lack of discipline at the club and Emery has struggled to exert any authority over an unruly dressing room. last_img read more

25 days agoMan Utd hero Pallister: Solskjaer will seek to buy experienced striker

first_imgTagsTransfersAbout the authorPaul VegasShare the loveHave your say Man Utd hero Pallister: Solskjaer will seek to buy experienced strikerby Paul Vegas25 days agoSend to a friendShare the loveManchester United hero Gary Pallister can see manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer buying an experienced striker in January.United will host Arsenal tonight with just 17 year-old Mason Greenwood as their one fit striker.Pallister said, “I think it (transfer window) all depends on how Mason Greenwood develops. Mason Greenwood announced himself on the European stage just like Marcus Rashford did. “I think you’d want a bit more experience in that front line. Liverpool and Man City seem to be attracting better players, it’s becoming a tougher market for United. United looked at a couple of options in the forward line over the summer, but they couldn’t make it happen, which puts the pressure on young forwards like Rashford who is 21 and Mason (Greenwood) who is 17, (Anthony) Martial who is 23. There’s not a great deal of experience and perhaps that is a position in the team that Ole would’ve liked a bit more experience. “Martial has been out a few weeks and Jesse (Lingard) has had injuries, it’s been a struggle to keep everyone fit and he will have been frustrated by that as would any manager.”Gary Pallister was speaking to BonusCodeBets last_img read more

Failing to address harassment allegations can cost employers

first_imgCOLUMBUS, Ohio – When it comes to sexual harassment allegations, no employer wants to find itself in the position an Indiana university was in during the 1990s, when a woman complained to a senior administrator that the school’s chancellor had groped her.“Oh, no, not again,” said the administrator at Indiana University’s South Bend campus.A jury awarded the woman $800,000.Although a judge later slashed that to $50,000, the message was clear: Failing to address allegations of sexual misconduct in the workplace can have expensive legal consequences for employers.“You don’t have to fire people necessarily, but doing nothing is usually not helpful,” said Camille Hebert, an employment discrimination professor at the Ohio State law school.Earlier this year, a former University of California, Santa Cruz student who alleges she was raped by a professor settled her claim against the university system for $1.15 million over what she says was its failure to address previous allegations of sexual harassment and sexual violence by the faculty member.It is with that reality in mind that companies are swiftly firing powerful men accused of misbehaviour and taking a zero-tolerance attitude toward such wrongdoing. But whether a no-mercy approach is a good idea is a matter of debate.While businesses are usually within their rights to swiftly fire employees accused of misconduct, as was done this week with former “Today” show host Matt Lauer and former “Prairie Home Companion” personality Garrison Keillor, such actions can also backfire, legal experts say. For example, they say, women who just want the harassment to stop and don’t want to see anyone get fired might hesitate to come forward.Philadelphia-based employment attorney Jon Segal said zero tolerance for harassment is important, but the consequences should be commensurate with the offence and should include steps short of firing, such as mandatory training, suspension or demotion.“You don’t want to send the message to people that if there is an allegation and it’s found to be true, it’s automatic termination,” Segal said.For employees who choose to sue, the timeframe can be short for raising the allegation: 300 days if employees want to sue in federal court. States often have more generous deadlines — six years in Ohio, for example — and fewer caps on financial damages.Time limits don’t mean lawsuits can’t be brought over older complaints of harassment. For example, employees can argue that a recent incident within the 300-day limit allows them to revisit an older complaint outside that window.Employers can also inadvertently breathe new life into old complaints by threatening employees with retaliation.“That is very high on the list of dumb moves for employers to make,” said Washington-based labour attorney Richard Seymour.Last year, a federal appeals court agreed that an Illinois circuit board company retaliated against a woman who brought sexual harassment allegations by firing her. She was awarded $300,000, even though her actual harassment claims were dismissed.Employers can also take actions they think are fixing a problem but often end up hurting them in court, such as transferring a woman who complained of harassment but not the man who harassed her.As new allegations crop up daily, labour attorneys say they are already hearing of a troubling trend: men unwilling to interact with female co-workers for fear of saying or doing the wrong thing.Such behaviour is a mistake since it contributes to a new form of discrimination by putting opportunities for women out of reach, experts say.“The answer to no sexual harassment isn’t polarizing the workforce into male versus female camps. That would be the very definition of sex discrimination,” said Washington labour attorney Deborah Kelly.But Hebert, the Ohio State law professor, is skeptical of men who say they’re worried about getting accused.“Most men understand the difference,” she said. “I always say, ‘If you’d feel uncomfortable with it happening to your daughter or your wife, maybe you shouldn’t be doing it.’”___Andrew Welsh-Huggins can be reached on Twitter at https://twitter.com/awhcolumbus.

Province announces funding to redevelop Dawson Creek Hospital

first_imgDAWSON CREEK, B.C. – B.C. Health Minister Adrian Dix was in Dawson Creek Wednesday to announce funding to redevelop the Dawson Creek Hospital.The redeveloped hospital will include a new inpatient building, a bigger emergency department, modern operating rooms and more beds.  Northern Health and the Province are now working on the business plan and finalizing the details of the redevelopment, which should take anywhere from 12 to 18 months. Once that has been completed, the project will go to construction in early 2021.With support from the local community, Northern Health has identified the hospital for renewal, as a priority, since 2008. The Dawson Creek and District Hospital Master Program and Master Plan was completed in December 2013. Northern Health submitted a concept plan for a redeveloped hospital in September 2015, but it did not receive consideration for advancement in the capital planning process. Upon request of the government, Northern Health provided an updated plan in March 2018. “I am proud to announce that the government has approved the concept plan to redevelop and expand the Dawson Creek and District Hospital. That means the project is a go and we are moving full steam ahead,” Dix said.“This day has been a long, long, long time coming. Our government approved this project so patients can receive public health-care services in updated, state-of-the-art surroundings. The South Peace region, its patients and health-care workers deserves nothing less.”“We’re so pleased to receive this announcement from the Province of B.C. that commits to improvements to our facility, services and care of patients at Dawson Creek and District Hospital,” said Colleen Nyce, Northern Health board chair. “This project will support our pledge to take a person- and family-centred approach to everything we do in a modern and up-to-date setting.”“The Peace River Regional Hospital District joins in celebrating that the much-needed improvements to Dawson Creek and District Hospital are moving forward,” said Brad Sperling, Peace River Regional Hospital District chair. “A redeveloped and expanded hospital in Dawson Creek will ensure that health-care services meet the needs of our residents well into the future. I would like thank the City of Dawson Creek and the PRRD board of directors for working together with the Province to see this much-needed project come to reality.”last_img read more

Cops to probe role of doctors kin in Amherst Street gold loot

first_imgKolkata: The Amherst Street police is examining the role of a relativeof the doctor at the Vishudhanand Saraswati Marwari Hospital in the alleged loot of some silver articles and gold jewellery at the doctor’s Amherst Street residence on February 24. Police officers recovered a major chunk of the articles of silver and some gold ornaments from Sodepur in North 24 Parganas on Saturday night though no one has been arrested in this connection. Also Read – Bengal family worships Muslim girl as Goddess Durga in Kumari PujaOn the incident day, the doctor’s relative had alleged loot at knife-point by two persons and claimed that she was alone with her 8-year-old nephew when the criminals looted the residence. She claimed that her nephew was fast asleep when the crime was committed. However, the probe in the case and the recovery has revealed that the doctor’s relative is very likely to have hidden the gold and silver articles herself and a fabricated story of the loot. Also Read – Bengal civic volunteer dies in road mishap on national highwayShe had allegedly sold them to a jeweller based in Sodepur in North 24 Parganas from where the police officers recovered a portion of the booty. “It seems to be simply an incident of theft and no loot. We are questioning some people in this connection to fix up the offender,” an investigating officer said. A police source revealed that the doctor’s relative , who is the prime suspect in the case, had been practising black magic for which she needed money. So she deliberately planned the whole episode, the source said. The complaint at the police station stated that the loot continued for 25 minutes and the duo had threatened to kill the victim’s nephew. The two were masked so the victim could not identify them. The police had suspected the role of some insider in the incident from the very beginning.last_img read more
