Organized to complement the Museum’s showing of Performance Now, Retro·active presents a historical view of performance art. This important genre exploded onto the scene in the mid-1960s and has developed over the past 50 years to incorporate dance, music, theater, technology and audience participation and to address aesthetic, personal, social, economic and political concerns. Six groundbreaking works by artists Chris Burden, Dan Graham, Joan Jonas, Paul McCarthy, Yoko Ono and Carolee Schneemann trace this pivotal moment and provide a context for contemporary performance art.*Some artworks contain mature content; adults with children may wish to preview the exhibition before visiting.

The scenic backdrop of the Brandywine River inspires a newly commissioned work by Brooklyn-based artist Matthew Jensen. The installation derives from immersive walks taken by Jensen throughout the summer months in the landscapes along the Brandywine and its tributaries. The verdant slopes, quiet footpaths, native flora, historic towns and small discoveries are all subjects in Jensen’s photographic work. The artist is known for embracing new photographic technology as means to explore landscape and he will continue to push the medium with this new work.  The resulting images and found objects will be displayed in a setting designed by the artist in the Museum’s third floor corridor, directly juxtaposed with the landscape that inspired the work. A map created by Jensen will invite visitors to explore the environment surrounding the Museum.

The story of a boy and his cyborg protector completed entirely in lines and phrases taken from the plays of William Shakespeare. Each line and phrase is taken from original folios, with only proper nouns, pronouns and corresponding verb tenses subject to change. In doing so, the authors were able to accurately recreate the story of Terminator 2: Judgment Day, while remaining true to the words of Shakespeare in form, if less so in intent.Developed by the creative team at Husky Jackal Theater for fun and laughs with a one-night only run, the project caught the attention of a number of influential websites and publications, including the SyFy channel, Gawker science blog i09 and Mental Floss magazine and was reaching supporters as far-flung as Brazil, the Philippines, Australia and the United Kingdom.$15 online; $18 at the door

U.S. Presidents: John F. Kennedy, Lyndon Johnson, Richard Nixon, Gerald Ford, Jimmy Carter, Ronald Reagan, Bill Clinton, both George Bushes and Barack Obama…Rich Little has a voice for every administration.Infamous for his skewering of political figures, Little has charmed, amused, intrigued and gotten the best of politicians from here to his native Canada. He entertained at both of Reagan’s presidential inaugurations and got to know the Reagan family very well during that time. President Reagan used to tell Little, “You do me better than I do.”A master mimic of more than 200 voices, Little continues to impress throughout the world, with regular stops in Atlantic City, Las Vegas, Reno, Hawaii, Chicago, New York, Canada and London. A professed classic movie buff, he’s particularly fond of doing Alan Ladd (his childhood hero), Gary Cooper and Clark Gable, but Little has also latched on to Baby Boomer-friendly characters, such as Edith Bunker, Kermit the Frog, Robin Leach and Dr. Ruth Westheimer, to name a few. Some of his favorite current impressions are of stars Arnold Schwarzenegger, Dr. Phil, Jack Nicholson and Clint Eastwood. “They’re easy to do,” he says. “They are larger than life.”

Priceless antiquities. Ruthless grave robbers. International criminals who rob the cultural heritage of Italy, trading in goods stolen from the necropolises of Tarquinia to the posh auction houses of London, England, from the seedy underbelly of the black market to world-renown museums.Ripped from the case files of the Guardia di Finanza, stories like these will be told during “Treasures and Tales of Italy’s Guardia di Finanza Art Recovery Team,” a groundbreaking exhibition of priceless works of Etruscan and Greco-Roman art and craftsmanship, on display at The Grand Opera House from Oct. 3-Dec. 21.Each ancient ceramic, mosaic and statue in the exhibit tells a story, not just of the time of its creation, but also of its theft and recovery by the indefatigable agents of the Gruppo Tutela Patrimonio Archeologico, the art recovery team inside the Guardia di Finanza. The Guardia di Finanza, with headquarters in Rome, is Italy’s national law enforcement agency tasked with fighting financial crime and recovering stolen art and artifacts.
