9:00am POWER TO THE PRINTERS: The Alternative Press in Iowa City, 1965-1985

This is the current exhibition in the Main Library Gallery, open through August 25, 2017.

The Gallery is free and open to the public. Hours: M, W, Th, F 9 am - 6 pm; Tu 9 am - 8 pm; Sa 1 pm - 5 pm; Su 1 pm - 5 pm.

In today’s era of instant communication, it’s hard to imagine a time when people relied on printing presses, the US Postal Service, and newspapers hawked on street corners to distribute information and calls to action. Unlike 21st century organizers of political action, activists in the 1960s and ‘70s relied on technology such as mimeograph machines and press type. Their medium was the printed word.

Iowa City was a hotbed of protest—and a hotbed of printing. Radical groups and individuals wrote newsletters and manifestos, printed fliers to post around town, and published literary magazines. Many of their newspapers were circulated nationally, creating space for local activists to engage with national conversations challenging the status quo.

The publications in this exhibition document many strands of protest in Iowa City: the anti-war movement, Chicana and Chicano liberation, feminism, black power, gay and lesbian rights. Visitors will see just a sample of Iowa City’s activism, drawn from extensive collections in the University Archives and the Iowa Women’s Archives.

Location: Gallery University of Iowa Main Library

10:00am "Bodies in Motion"

Bodies in Motion compares the dance photography of Barbara Morgan to work produced by artists from the Renaissance to the present. Imagined as a complement to Dance Marathon, which takes place in the IMU February 3–4, 2017, the exhibition highlights Morgan’s ability to capture motion, the innovative choreography of Martha Graham, and the similar expressions of movement in pieces by artists such as Jackson Pollock, Francisco de Goya y Lucientes, Gyorgy Kepes, and Nathan Lerner.

7:00pm Live From Prairie Lights: Taylor Brorby

Environmental writer and poet Taylor Brorby will read from Coming Alive: Action and Civil Disobedience, and his new book of poetry, Crude, published by Ice Cube Press.

In Coming Alive, Taylor Brorby reveals a way to hope during uncertain times.

“Taylor Brorby has been as tireless as anyone I know in his fight to protect the planet...This account of his visits to the Bakken oil fields and to Standing Rock, his acts of resistance and subsequent arrest, is a powerful call to action, a primal scream of anguish and love for the original mother we must now link arms to protect.” —Pam Houston

Tyler Brorby is a fellow at the Black Earth Institute and travels around the country regularly to speak about hydraulic fracking. He is co-editor of the anthology Fracture: Essays, Poems, and Stories on Fracking in America, and is reviews editor at Orion Magazine. His work has appeared in Orion, High Country News, The Huffington Post, and Hawk & Handsaw.

“In Crude, a stunning poetic debut, Taylor Brorby fights for the environmental landscape of his home in the North Dakota Bakken fields ‘like a pike with a hook in its mouth.’ With a passionate voice, profound courage, and deft imagistic skills, he brings an ‘unrelenting and fierce’ energy to the page in hopes of protecting for all of us a ‘world filled with the necessity of beauty.’” —Mary Swander
