PQ Vortex at Le Moyne College

The PQ Vortex of our Dreams Exhibit opened for public viewing at LeMoyne College in the Wilson Art Gallery section of the Noreen Reale Falcone Library October 17.

The photographs and videos in this gallery are highlights from USITT’s exhibition at the 2015 Prague Quadrennial, which was installed in the 14th-century Church of Saint Anne and visited by 180,000 people.

The iPads include images, video, and interviews which allow you to engage in many ways with the featured productions. QR codes can also be used to access the online catalog of the exhibition to learn more about the designers and teams behind these productions.

“Designers are all around us,” said USITT Executive Director, David Grindle at the exhibit’s opening. “Designers and artists are helping to create a world for the theatre and for entertainment. When you get the chance to see what your friends, neighbors, and alumni are doing, it gives you an appreciation that this level of talent is right next door to you.”

Designed by Klara Zieglerova, with lighting design by Kevin Rigdon, the exhibition was guided by the quadrennial’s theme of weather, evoking the most American of meteorological phenomena — a tornado. The productions in this exhibition were curated by Tony Walton (scenic design), Carrie Robbins (costume design), Kevin Rigdon (lighting design), and Veronika Vorel (sound design). Markéta Fantová served as artistic director of the project.

The exhibit will run through Dec. 20, 2017.
