Bring a lawn chair or blanket to enjoy an outdoor screening of the filmed version of “Sweet Land” on Emory’s Quadrangle on Oct. 6, at 7:30 p.m. Named "Best New Opera of 2021" by the Music Critics Association of North America, The Industry's “Sweet Land” is a grotesque historical pageant that disrupts the dominant narrative of American identity. The filmed version was originally performed outside in Los Angeles State Historic Park. The screening is sponsored by the Michael C. Carlos Museum and is in conjunction with the museum’s “Each/Other” exhibit of work from Indigenous contemporary artists Marie Watt and Cannupa Hanska Luger, on display through Dec. 12.
