McClure</strong>, one of the three main organizers of hugely popular <em><strong>Nasty Women New Haven</strong></em> and <em><strong>Joe Bun Keo</strong></em> curator of <em><strong>&quot;Alternative Facts&quot;</strong></em>, a smaller exhibition within a bigger event entitled <em><strong>&quot;In Grace We Trust&rdquo;</strong></em>. The <strong>Nasty Women'</strong>s art exhibits have taken off nationally and globally in reaction to the current administrations misogynist and violent comments and their curtailing of women's rights. New Haven is one of over 50 cities to join the movement to organize a <strong>Nasty Women</strong> exhibition. Over 300 artists have participated and the opening night drew a record breaking number of over a thousand into the exhibition space. This grass-roots project is raising money in support of <strong>Planned Parenthood </strong>and features a variety of events and activities including a reading room and a performance evening. <br /> <br /> <em><strong>&quot;Alternative Facts&quot;</strong></em>, a part of <strong><em>&quot;In Grace We Trust&quot;</em></strong> is up now at the newly established <strong>Ely Center of Contemporary Art</strong> in New Haven. Curator <strong>Joe Bun Keo </strong>writes : &ldquo;'Alternative Facts' are falsehoods. Critical media is now being called fake news. Lies are now accepted as truths. Think about the <strong>Rene Magritte</strong> painting, <em><strong>&ldquo;The Treachery of Images (This is Not a Pipe) &quot;</strong></em>... There is much uncertainty in a time when stability is needed. The works in this exhibition are physically presented, but how they settle in the viewer is up for conceptual debate.&rdquo;</p> <p>The two artist/organizers will discuss how the visual art world is manifesting itself locally in this critical moment in time.</p> <p>During the second half we speak with <strong>MILCK</strong> the singer songwriter of the hit <em><strong>&ldquo;Quiet&rdquo;</strong></em>which became the unofficial anthem of the Women's March in DC. and since has been the subject of many flashmob choral performances globally. Originally <strong>MILCK</strong> organised a group of 26 singers including members of the <strong>GW Sirens</strong> and the <strong>Capital Blend</strong> and sang a series of guerrilla performances around D.C. during Saturday's Women's March. Calling themselves the <em><strong>#ICantKeepQuiet</strong></em> <strong>Choir</strong>, they partnered with the <strong>Pussy Hat Project</strong> for the event. Once the videos of the song went viral online, they sang live on <strong>Samantha Bee&rsquo;sFull Frontal</strong>.<br /> <br /> Since then <strong>MILCK</strong> has launched a website and major social media campaign and website for <em><strong>#ICantKeepQuiet</strong></em> as a place to collect and share personal stories of inspiration. The campaign aims to raise awareness against abuse of women and minorities, and encourage empathy, tolerance and understanding towards one another. Proceeds from the project will benefit <strong>Step Up</strong>, a nonprofit that provides after school and mentorship programs for underprivileged teen girls. On April 8th, choirs and individuals will activate at 1pm in their respective time zones to sing out, speak up, and express themselves. One may participate both online and offline- more<a href="https://www.icantkeepquiet.org./"> here</a></p> <p>Additionally, <strong>MILCK&rsquo;</strong>s debut single,<strong><em> &ldquo;Devil Devil&rdquo;</em></strong> has served as the soundtrack to the season finale of<strong> The Royals</strong>, <strong>Netflix&rsquo;s Marco Polo</strong> trailer, and <strong>Fox&rsquo;s Lucifer</strong>, as well as an upcoming episode of <strong>Pretty Little Liars</strong>. <em><strong>&ldquo;Devil Devil&rdquo;</strong></em> peaked as the #1 popular tune on<strong>Tunefind.com</strong> twice in 2016, as well as having garnered over 520K streams on <strong>Spotify</strong>, and over 1 million <strong>YouTube </strong>views.<strong> MILCK's</strong> impressive list of press includes <strong>BBC News</strong>,<strong>NPR</strong>, <strong>The Huffington Post</strong>, and <strong>Rolling Stone</strong>, to name a few.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> https://wpkn.streamrewind.com/https://wpkn.streamrewind.com/bookmarks/listen/178844 Sat, 25 Mar 2017 11:00:25 GMT Live Culture with Martha Willette Lewis- Episode 19- With a Paddle https://wpkn.streamrewind.com/https://wpkn.streamrewind.com/bookmarks/listen/159228 <p>This Month I am in conversation with Artist and Canoeist <strong>Scott Schuldt.</strong> As we make our way along the <strong>Scantic River</strong> in CT we discuss his practice, which involves specimens and artifacts found on his river trips, and the special treasure hunt with them that he has created for this year's <strong>Game-On </strong>themed <strong>City-Wide-Open-Studios</strong> which happens throughout October In New Haven.</p> <p>Each day several lucky players could win their artifact, beautifully contained in one of Scott's unique specimen boxes to show off and protect their treasure.Open Studios and Scott's game are free and open to the public.Additionally, for the past several years Scott has been working as Facilities Coordinator for <strong>City-Wide-Open-Studios' Alternative Space</strong>, acting as engineer for the many installations that take place in <strong>The Goffe Street Armory</strong>.</p> <p>In addition to his specimen boxes.
