ARTS AND ENTERTAINMENT
ART MUSEUM PRESENTS "PHILIPPINE DIASPORA"
"Philippine Diaspora in Contemporary Art," an exhibition of 25 Filipino
artists now living in the United States, Canada, Indonesia and the
Philippines, will open Sunday, Sept. 28, at 2 p.m. in the North Dakota
of Art. Several artists featured in the exhibition will give an informal
gallery talk at 3 p.m. on opening day.
1998 is the centennial of the Philippine revolution against three
Spanish rule and also marks the 50th anniversary of Philippine
from the United States. The exhibition grew out of a decision by Filipino
artists working at the University of California at Irvine to organize an
exhibition which would reflect on the loss of their homeland -- brought
by economic destitution rather than oppressive political conditions --
resulted in dislocation and migration on a global scale. The works
are part of a continuing conversation between exiles, those who returned
and those who stayed at home. The exhibition, which continues through
contains work in many media. Paintings, drawings, sculptures,
LED sign boards, films and videos all explore themes of history, cultural
difference, identity and global migration.
Santiago Bose, who lives in the Philippines, will come to North Dakota to
create an installation of his talismanic rituals and ritualized drawings.
his video installation of a security officer's desk, Bose has manipulated
video monitors which flicker with a synthesis of images of Philippine
farmers, festivals, and an ironic closed-circuit view of a Western art
and a business office.
Joseph Santarromana uses a computer to blend images of his face with
culture icons like Mickey Mouse and Ferdinand Marcos in a process called
morphing. This process embodies the migration of identities that is at
center of Filipino experience. In another series, Santarromana's face is
mixed with computer-manipulated images of places he has been which drift
and out to create a surrealistic aura. Years ago, one of those places was

The Philippines have supplied the entire world with domestic workers.
Cajipe-Endaya's "Foreign Domestic Helper" is an eloquent, sparse
about these migrant Filipino domestic laborers and the loss of their
and culture. It is constructed from the cheapest of common objects: an
a mop, pieces of cloth -- all emblems of domestic toil.
Lani Maestro's work "A Voice Remembers Nothing" is a video installation
invoking the names of those "disappeared" by the Marcos regime.
Maryrose Mendoza's sculpture "Punching Bag," a combination of a miniature
punching bag and a pin cushion covered in pins, cleverly steals the
bag from the macho world and places it in the realm of women's work. It
honors Mendoza's grandmother, who owned a tailoring shop.
Genara Banzon's "Pagmamalasakit: The Quest for Greener Pastures" is a
physically large and almost shrine-like work. It is an image of a girl on

from 1 to 5 p.m. Saturday and Sunday. There is no admission charge. --

WOMEN'S CENTER LISTS EVENTS
The Wednesday, Oct. 1, "Feast and Focus" program at noon in the Women's
Center, 305 Hamline Street, is "Healing Circle." The Healing Circle is a
Native American Sioux tradition based on the belief that healing can only
occur in community and not alone. With our hectic schedules and tendency
things ourselves, the concept of staying connected gets lost. Before we
it we can become isolated. So if you go, go, go and don't get support,
likely you will forget how much it really matters. The Healing Circle will
with the ritual of passing on the light. The light or source exists for
us at all times. We regulate the connections when we receive support and
conscious of it, but when it's taken away we miss it. Come and experience
healing within the community of the Women's Center.
The Thursday, Oct. 2, For Women Only program is "Honoring Self." It seems
sometimes that so much that is natural to the life cycle of women is
with shame. This program will briefly celebrate the three phases of
the maiden, the mother, and the crone (you need never have been a mother
yet a crone to celebrate these!). Self-love -- it's never too late to
how to achieve this.
Please join us. -- Donna Oltmanns, Coordinator, Women's Center.

Grand Forks Master Chorale Saturday, Oct. 11, at 7:30 p.m. in Holy Family

prophet Elijah with music of great variety and beauty. Elijah is
baritone David Adams, a UND senior music major. Local audiences are
with Adams for previous solos in Handel's "Messiah" and Bach's "St. John
The presentation of "Elijah" was originally scheduled for April 27 as the
concluding concert of the Master Chorale's past season. Meeting this
Dr. Rodde and members of the organization agreed that the work had even
relevance after the flood and should be performed. Because a number of
musicians from the spring orchestra are not available this fall, 20
the Fargo-Moorhead Symphony have offered to play as a contribution to the
Grand Forks groups.
Tickets for the performance are $8 for general admission, $7 for seniors
$5 for students, and will be sold at the door. -- Ruth Marshall, Grand

"Kiss Me Kate" opens the season with a bang. Under the direction of Dr.

merry, musical way and outdoes even the Great Bard with such favorites as
"Another Openin', Another Show," "Too Darn Hot," "I Hate Men" and "Brush
The acting talents of visiting assistant professor Frances Ford will be
featured in "The Belle of Amherst" as she skillfully brings to life her

Frank Galati's adaptation of John Steinbeck's famous novel, "The Grapes of
Wrath," takes the stage in late February with the classic tale of the Joad
family as they flee the dust bowl of Oklahoma in an attempt to find a
life in California. Uprooted and swept along by forces they cannot
understand, the Joad family's struggles embody the indomitable spirit of
ordinary Americans. Visiting assistant professor Bill Lacy directs this
"Tartuffe" will close the '97-98 season at Burtness Theatre. Moliere's
popular comedy skewers hypocritical morality. We see the consequences of
believing what is laid before us instead of acknowledging the towering
evidence that so often proves otherwise. Directed by Bruce Jacobsen, dean
the College of Fine Arts and Communication, this romping farce continues

LOCAL GRANT PROVIDES FREE LANDLORD/TENANT MEDIATION
A $15,000 grant from the North Dakota Community Foundation is funding a
program to help resolve flood-related landlord/tenant disputes. This fall
UND Conflict Resolution Center (CRC) will be using the grant money to
free landlord/tenant mediations.
While not new (the CRC has been practicing mediation for almost a decade),
mediation has gained increased acceptance as an effective tool for
seemingly intractable problems. According to Linda Hendrikson, Services
Coordinator for the CRC, "With landlord-tenant conflicts, it is important
remember that both parties are victims of this disaster." Hendrikson
that, "In the chaos of the moment, the individuals often don't have the
perspective of the other."
Mediation is a confidential process in which people involved in a conflict
able to discuss the issues in a cooperative setting. It allows for
consultation from experts (i.e. attorneys, accountants, etc.) and enables
people to make informed voluntary decisions.
Dr. James Antes, CRC director, is optimistic about the help that mediation
offer the community. "Many of the landlord/tenant issues that have been
appear to be amenable to mediation," said Antes.
To find out more about flood-related mediation services, contact Linda
Hendrikson, Services Coordinator, at 777-6390. Information about the
range of services offered at the Conflict Resolution Center can be found
the Internet at http://www.und.nodak.edu/dept/crc.
CRC Steps For Working Together To Solve Problems
1. Agree on some basic ground rules for your discussion. Use courtesy
respect. Refrain from interrupting each other. Respect confidentiality. Be
2. Talk and listen. Each person takes a turn at explaining his/her
perspective of the situation.
3. Try to identify what the basic problems are. Use non-blaming
Make a list of these problems and begin working on them one by one.
4. For each basic problem, each person talks about his or her concerns.
Don't push for solutions yet, but spend time really exploring each problem
how everyone is affected by it. Make a list of each person's concerns.
5. Now spend time brainstorming solutions for each problem. Get creative
and try not to evaluate any solutions until all ideas have come out.
6. When all ideas have been generated, sort through them and decide
ones do the best job of meeting all the concerns that have been expressed.
7. Final step: decide exactly which solutions will be selected and what
each person will do in executing them.
