LIGHTS, CAMERA, DECO!: A Cinematic Celebration of Art Deco's International Influence. In conjunction with the Art Deco Society of New York. The Art Deco style arguably originated at the Exposition Internationale des Arts Decoratifs et Industriels in Paris in 1925, where it left  a mark on many designers including Cedric Gibbons, art director for the film Grand Hotel. The Art Deco style would appear in over 1500 films—from Metropolis to The Artist—across the following decades. Art Deco was a truly international style, influencing architecture, fashion, and the design of all objects from perfume bottles to cars. Art Deco moved away from the floral, ornamental patterns of the past to the streamlined, modern shapes of the future. At the same time it embraced and exoticized design motifs from Asia, South America, Egypt, and Africa. Art Deco’s clean and geometric lines complemented the black and white movies of the era and created enduring iconic cinematic images. Please join SPS’s Center for Applied Liberal Arts in collaboration with the Art Deco Society of New York this Fall in celebrating Art Deco’s impact on cinema around the world.

Fueling our Future: Mid East Energy and Politics

Monday, October 23, 6.30 - 7.45 pm


The last three years have proven tumultuous for energy producers in the Middle East. In 2014, OPEC elected to maintain production levels, while the US shale revolution drove prices down to new lows. OPEC’s most recent decision to work with Russia and other non-OPEC countries to curtail production has created only a minimal rebound. Most of the region’s economies continue to endure economic weakness as a result of the extended price drop, with significant implications for social and political stability. To add to these challenges, Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, Egypt, and the United Arab Emirates cut ties with Qatar in June, creating perhaps the worst diplomatic crisis to hit Gulf Arab states in decades. The embargo remains, affecting Qatar’s energy trade and raising questions about shifting regional relationships, particularly between Qatar and Iran. CGA Academic Director Carolyn Kissane will examine these issues and others in a fascinating panel discussion on the geopolitics of energy in the Middle East.
