Lorem Ipsum

When: 
Saturday, November 7, 2015 - 11:00am - Saturday, December 12, 2015 - 5:00pm

In graphic design, the jumbled Latin phrase “lorem ipsum” is used as a placeholder in advance of finished text. Designers employ this language in order to focus attention on the structural elements of a layout, such as typography, without being distracted by readable content. Much like its graphic usage, Lorem Ipsum will be a work in progress designed to expose the conceptual and logistical mechanisms of an exhibition.

Directed by Michael Connolly
Considered one of Shakespeare’s darkest and most powerful works, the play illustrates the damaging physical and psychological effects of political ambition on those who seek power for its own sake. Scholar and author Marjorie Garber argues that Shakespeare’s work is so mutable that it always exists in the present. In fact, it’s been called the Shakespearean tragedy that best explains the power of the AMC blockbuster Breaking Bad. “Something wicked this way comes.”
