April - June 2017 Art Exhibitions and Events at Plymouth Arts Centre Gallery in the Cinema To Valerie Solanas and Marilyn Monroe in Recognition of their Desperation Pauline Boudry/ Renate Lorenz 21 March - 6 April, Plymouth Arts Centre cinema 1-5pm (at times when the cinema is in use for matinées, this film will be shown on an alternative screen). Pauline Boudry and Renate Lorenz’s staged films and film installations often start with a song, a picture, a film or a script from the past. They have been working together in Berlin since 2007, producing performances for the camera, staging the actions of individuals and groups living — indeed thriving — in defiance of normality, law and economics. In this film, performers follow the score To Valerie Solanas and Marilyn Monroe in Recognition of their Desperation, written by composer Pauline Oliveros in 1970 after reading Valerie Solanas’ “SCUM Manifesto”. Oliveros‘ composition asks the performers to choose five pitches each and play very long tones, modulated or unmodulated. In the middle section of the piece the performers are invited to imitate each other‘s pitches and modulations. The cues in this piece are given collectively through light - a red section is followed by a yellow and a blue section, and there are two additional cues given by strobe light.

If any performer becomes dominant, the rest of the group should come up and absorb that dominance back into the texture of the piece. Oliveros wrote that this was a way of “expressing at the deep structure what the SCUM Manifesto meant... It was really out of that understanding of both community and the individual – which was in her manifesto – that became the principle, or the philosophy, of the music that I began to write.“ Land/Sea Mike Perry 7 April–17 June Preview: Thursday 6 April, 6–8pm Mike Perry will be in conversation with Ben Borthwick, PAC Artistic Director at 7pm Land/Sea includes selected groups of work from Perry’s series Môr Plastig (Welsh for ‘plastic sea’), in which the artist collects and forensically photographs plastic objects such as bottles, shoes and packaging washed up on the beaches of West Wales. Displayed in taxonomical grids as if they are scientific specimens, Perry channels the beachcombing of so many coastal artists into the aesthetics of minimalism and conceptual art.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
