SOUL, POWER, CONNECTION
A REFUGE FOR THE CREATION OF NEW MUSIC FOR SOPRANO, CLARINET, AND PIANO

Toronto-based composer and music director Kieren MacMillan enjoys an active career on both sides of the score. HAVEN Trio (soprano Lindsay Kesselman, clarinetist Kimberly Cole Luevano, and pianist Midori Koga) presents MacMillans Three Portraits, a dramatic setting of poems by Dana Gioia, the current Poet Laureate of California. Funded by an Ontario Arts Council Commissioning Grant, this work weaves together text settings and instrumental interludes into a narrative of nostalgia, emotional recollection, and a journey towards comfort.  Abbie Betinis’ Nattsanger (Nightsongs) which explore “the mysterious nature of the period from sunset to dawn” (Betinis website), will also be featured.  HAVEN is thrilled to collaborate with Campbell House Museum in this unique opportunity to present two cycles of poetry and music in this historic mansion.

Picasso & Beyond: Art of the 20th Century

After a close look at the work of Pablo Picasso and his only rival, Henri Matisse, we will go on to discuss Surrealism, the New York Schools, the European Schools and the British Schools, including Francis Bacon, Lucian Freud and David Hockney. We will discuss the rise of women painters, the Harlem Renaissance and much more.

October 11 – Picasso – An artist of change and innovation, Pablo Picasso rewrote the story of art. He changed the rules and reconfigured the playing field. Love him or hate him, he’s an intensely interesting and disturbed character.

October 18 – Matisse – The elegant and introverted Matisse, Pablo Picasso’s only rival, was all that Picasso was not. A colourist of extreme daring and sensitivity, he redefined the traditional palette.  

October 25 – Dada/Surrealism – Dali, Duchamp, Breton, Apollinaire, Man Ray, deChirico, Magritte, Carrington and all the rest – fascinated by Freud, delighted by the occult, this group created mayhem in a world already gone mad.

November 1 – Blaue Reiter/Bauhaus/Expressionism – Kandinsky, Klee, Franz Marc, Grosz, Munter, Dix, combined to create some of the most original and expressive art to surface to this day.

November 8 – The London School – Freud, Hockney, Bacon, Aurbache, London, the swinging 60s, just imagine the excitement, the conversation, the experimentation. These brilliant artists all emerged at the same time, in the same town. Bliss.

November 15 – The New York School – Pollock, Rothko, de Kooning, call them abstract expressionists, action painters, or charlatans they created work that was big, brash and American. Did you know it was all secretly paid for by the CIA?

November 22 – The Women – Carr, Kahlo, O’Keefe, Saar, Frankenthaler, Bourgeois, Shultz, Kiki, Neel, Saville, Ringgold – this lecture will mention a few of the many women that have been overlooked.

November 29 – Beyond the Harlem Renaissance – Wiley, Marshall, Walker, Bearden, Shonibare – there are so many fabulous artists from the African diaspora that I’ll just leave it at that and see how many others we can discuss on the day.

Tevlin Talks Art
Suzanne Tevlin is an artist, art historian and writer. Her primary art historical interest is the representation of the “Other” in Western art. Suzanne founded “The Tevlin Perspective: Art History from The Artist’s Point of View” in 1994, whilst lecturing at The Villa Ephrussi de Rothschild, part of The Institut de France, on the Côte d’Azur. She is the only Canadian artist to have been invited to take part in the recent exhibition “GOLD” at the Musée Belvedere in Vienna. Note: Suzanne will be in Paris in April/May 2018 if you would like to arrange visits to the museums.
