    Under the baton of Garrett Lathe, over 120 high school singers from 14 high schools – all members of the Youth Chorale of Central Minnesota – will be presenting one of their largest undertakings to date. Along with 21 orchestral musicians, the YCCM will be bring the Central Minnesota premiere of this deeply emotional work to the stage at the Paramount. Published in mid-2013, Requiem for the Living offers an inspiring perspective on life, love, loss and renewal. A Requiem, at its core, is a prayer for rest – traditionally, for the deceased. The five movements of Dan Forrest’s Requiem for the Living, however, form a narrative for the living and their own struggle with pain and sorrow when dealing with the loss of a loved one. “Overall, the work is a prayer for rest (“Requiem”) for the living, not for the deceased. The plea of this requiem is to “grant us rest, O Lord”, not “grant them rest”.

    The St. Cloud Friends of Mia are excited to host Gabriel Ritter, Curator and Head of Contemporary Art, on Tuesday May 2, 2017 in the GDCC President’s Dining Room at the College of Saint Benedict from 6 - 9:30 p.m. Gabriel will update us on all things Contemporary at Mia with a splash of del Toro for good measure.

    Gabriel came to Mia in 2016 to oversee its Department of Contemporary Art. He had been The Nancy and Tim Hanley Assistant Curator of Contemporary Art at the Dallas Museum of Art (DMA) since 2012. There, he organized the DMA’s long-running “Concentrations” series of exhibitions on internationally emerging and underrepresented artists, worked with artists and arts organizations in the Dallas area to strengthen ties with the DMA, and grew the museum’s contemporary art collection through key acquisitions. In 2015, he co-organized “Between Action and the Unknown: The Art of Kazuo Shiraga and Sadamasa Motonaga,” the first major American exhibition of these influential artists. He also served as the DMA curator for the traveling exhibitions “International Pop” (2015) and “Cindy Sherman” (2013). As an independent curator, Gabriel has worked around the world, creating exhibitions of emerging artists from the United States, Europe, and Asia. As a 2011 Japan Foundation Doctoral Fellow at the National Museum of Modern Art, Tokyo, he researched Japanese surrealism of the 1930s and ’40s. His expertise in Japanese modern and contemporary art has informed exhibitions such as Out of the Ordinary: New Video from Japan (2007) at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Los Angeles, where he worked as a curatorial assistant.
