Jordan Schnitzer Museum of Art (JSMA)

Qosqo, entre el pasado y el presente: Photography in Cusco 1895 - 1945, is a portrait of a city and a culture at the dawn of the modern era, drawn from the work of nine photographers who lived in the Cusco region. Subjects range from Inca sites to romanticized evocations of Peru’s indigenous past; representations of power and authority, race, class, labor and gender, technological advances, and resistance to societal conventions. The exhibition, co-curated by Adelma Benavente García and Peter Yenne, features fifty-four digital prints made from glass plate negatives in institutional archives and small private collections. The exhibition also includes fifteen vintage gelatin silver prints by the most famous photographer of the group, Martín Chambi, and a painted backdrop circa 1895 from the studio of Miguel Chani. Socially, racially and geographically, the nine photographers represent a subtle cross-section of life in the southern highlands of Peru. Their varied techniques, subject matter and artistic personalities offer us a rare insight into the complex heritage that shaped them and the exuberantly hybrid world they depicted.

February 2–April 21
Jordan Schnitzer Museum of Art (JSMA)

Visual Clave explores the evolution of Latin album cover art with particular focus on the United States market. It pays critical attention to issues of identity and aesthetics through depictions of Latino/a people and cultures, historical context, and the unsung graphic artists who helped present Latin music—and its attendant socio-cultural themes—to the world. The show weaves a compelling narrative through the display of album jackets for 78 RPM records from the 1930s and ’40s to LP covers from the 1960s through the ’90s. Throughout the exhibition, individual album covers are juxtaposed with their original art, often made by New York-born and based designers from the “golden age of salsa” (late 1960s-’70s). For the artists, record albums served as an important creative outlet for commentary on urgent cultural, political, and economic issues affecting Latin American and Caribbean immigrant communities in the United States. Clave (pronounced CLAH-vay) is the African-derived 2-3 or 3-2 beat used in genres from the Cuban son, mambo, cha-cha-cha and rumba to the Colombian cumbia, the Dominican merengue, and the Mexican son jarocho. Here, the concept of clave—essential to understanding Afro-Antillean popular music and dance—suggests that the visual presentation of the music is as culturally informed as the recordings contained within the packaging. A music listening station will accompany the objects on view.

Visual Clave is organized by Philip W. Scher, UO Professor of Anthropology and Folklore and Public Culture and Divisional Dean for Social, and Pablo E. Yglesias, a Northampton, MA-based Cuban-American researcher, writer, musician, artist, and DJ. An expanded version of the exhibition was on view previously at the Student Union Art Gallery at the University of Massachusetts-Amherst; the Bronx Music Heritage Center, NY; and Picture Farm Gallery, Brooklyn, NY. Visual Clave takes its inspiration and intellectual structure from Yglesias’ book Cocinando: 50 Years of Latin Album Cover Art (Princeton Architectural Press, 2005). The exhibition is supported by UO’s College of Arts and Sciences, the Center for Latino/a and Latin American Studies (CLLAS), and a JSMA Academic Support Grant.

January 19–May 12
Jordan Schnitzer Museum of Art (JSMA)

This collaborative exhibition between the JSMA and the George D. Green Art Institute celebrates recent work by forty-five artists who began their creative careers in Oregon during the 1960s and '70s. Among those whose paintings (as well as sketchbooks, ceramics, and mixed-media works incorporating paint) will be featured. Participating artists include: Susan Applegate, Jay Backstrand, Rob Bibler, Sharon Bronzan, Sandy Brooke, Clint Brown, Karen Carson, Craig Cheshire, Margaret Coe, Jon Colburn, Bets Cole, Jon Jay Cruson, Robert Dozono, Robert Gamblin, Humberto Gonzalez, Dennis Gould, Cie Goulet, George Green, John Haugse, Carol Hausser, Jeri Hise, George Johanson, Leland John, Kacey Joyce, Connie Kiener, Edwin Koch, James Lavadour, Nancy Lindburg, Margaret Matson, Sue-Del McCulloch, Gary Meacham, Terry Melton, Ken O'Connell, Paula Overbay, Lucinda Parker, Jan Reaves, Laura Ross-Paul, Sandra Roumagoux, Erik Sandgren, Isaka Shamsud-Din, Jim Shull, Susan Trueblood Stuart, Richard Thompson, Hugh Webb, and Phyllis Yes. 

This exhibition will showcase how this generation of artists continues to represent the highest levels of artistic statement and creative accomplishment, while maintaining commitments to personalized styles. Sixty years after their careers started in this state - in many cases, as students of the University of Oregon's M.F.A. Program, at Oregon State University, or at Portland's Museum Art School (now Pacific Northwest College of Art) - these artists continue to create art that inspires and expands this state's artistic landscape. Thanks to a Ford Family Foundation Exhibition and Documentation Support Grant, the exhibition will be accompanied by a catalog with essays by JSMA McCosh Curator Danielle Knapp and Dr. Henry Sayer, Distinguished Professor of Art History at Oregon State University - Cascades Campus. 

Visual Magic: An Oregon Invitational is made possible with the generous support of the Coeta and Donald Barker Changing Exhibitions Endowment, Arlene Schnitzer and Jordan Schnitzer, the Oregon Arts Commission and the National Endowment for the Arts, a federal agency, and JSMA members. The accompanying catalog was funded by a Ford Family Foundation Exhibition and Documentation Support Grant and the George D. Green Art Institute’s Benefactors (Sonya McDowell Education Grant, Meri & Scott McLeod, Stephen & Dr. Becky Miller-Moe) and Sponsors (Sharon Bronzan, Sandy Brooke, Karen Carson, Barb & Dave Corden, Jon Jay Cruson, Robert & Noriko Dozono, Sandy Green, Dinny Hausser & Lenny Held, Nels Hall & Deb Mawson, Terry Melton, Ward Family Fund of the Oregon Community Foundation, Annie Painter, Betsy & Wally Preble, Ned Preble, Jane & Reagan Ramsey, Laura Ross-Paul, and Andy Thaler).

The JSMA mourns the recent losses of two featured artists, Edwin "Ed" Koch (1937 - 2018) and Janet "Jan" Reaves (1945 - 2018).

510 Oak building

Center for Art Research, University of Oregon, Department of Art

Jan Tumlir Book Reading - "The Magic Circle. On The Beatles, Pop Art, Art-Rock and Records"

Los Angeles based art writer and curator Jan Tumlir will read from his book "The Magic Circle. On The Beatles, Pop Art, Art-Rock and Records." Charting a pathway of historical analysis and speculative association outward from The Beatles’ "Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band," "The Magic Circle" is a meditation on the form of the concept album as a point of convergence between the worlds of rock and art, as well as an experiment in conflating the critical methodologies appropriate to either side.

Jan Tumlir is an art-writer and teacher based in Los Angeles. He is a founding editor of the local art journal X-TRA, and a regular contributor to Artforum. He has written catalog essays for such artists as Bas Jan Ader, Uta Barth, John Divola, Cyprien Gaillard, Allen Ruppersberg and James Welling. Books include: LA Artland, a survey of contemporary art in Los Angeles co-written with Chris Kraus and Jane McFadden, published by Black Dog Press in 2005; Hyenas Are…, a monograph on the work of Matthew Brannon, published by Mousse in 2011; and The Magic Circle: On The Beatles, Pop Art, Art-Rock and Records, published by Onomatopee in 2015. In addition to serving as an MFA advisor at Art Center College of Design, Tumlir is a visiting professor at University of California in Riverside, and at Washington University in St. Louis.

“Healer” by Euan Macdonald

“Desert Miracles” by Gossing Sieckmann

__

Miriam Gossing & Lina Sieckmann’s 'Desert Miracles’ is a cinematic exploration of a commercialized architecture of desire. Across 22 different tableaus, the film meditates upon the interiors of Nevada’s wedding chapels considering how the excessive scenery opens up to constitute a cultural organisation of “Love”. A woman’s voice is heard reading out an ambiguous letter to an unknown lover, in which she finds herself troubled by the challenges of modern relationships, unable to negotiate a balance between self-fulfillment and optimization. The text is based on anonymous posts by different women in various internet wedding forums. One fictional female character is composed out of many assembled perspectives on desire, relationships and social expectation.

In Euan Macdonald’s video work “Healer”, the power of belief is in question: is psychic healing a kind of trickery or, can viewers allow themselves to believe that they are witnessing a magical moment; that this woman is capable of emitting psychic energy that has the power to heal? As Giorgio Verzotti notes, “Macdonald’s art seems to question the real meaning of things, beginning with the presupposition that their images are inherently deceptive, indeed that they are all connected within a single network of relationships based on illusions.”

Miriam Gossing & Lina Sieckmann have studied at the Academy of Media Arts Cologne under Matthias Müller, Phil Collins, Sophie Maintigneux and Beate Gütschow, as well as at the Kunstakademie Düsseldorf under Rita Mc Bride. As an artist duo they have made several experimental films on 16-mm film, in which urban and private architecture, hyper-staged environment, and the notion of desire are examined – combining documentary imagery with fiction and found footage.Their work is shown internationally in exhibitions and film festivals (e.g. Hamburger Bahnhof – Museum für Gegenwart Berlin, International Short Film Festival Oberhausen, Videonale, Kunstmuseum Bonn, Anthology Film Archives New York City). They have been awarded with numerous prizes and scholarships, amongst them the Wim-Wenders-Stipendium, the German Short Film Prize and the Nomination for the Preis der Nationalgalerie für Filmkunst.

Euan Macdonald, born Edinburgh, Scotland, has had numerous solo shows in international museums and galleries including ASU Art Museum; The Hayward Gallery, London; Kunstbunker Kinstverein, Nuremberg; andObjectif Exhibitions, Antwerp Belgium. as well as group exhibitions at Rockbund Art Museum, Shanghai, Para Site, Hong Kong, The Henry Art Gallery, Seattle; Sculpture Center, Queens, NY; The Wattis Center for Contemporary Art, San Francisco; MAT Contemporary art center, Nagoya, Japan; Seville Biennale, Museo Tamayo, Mexico City; The New Museum of Contemporary Art, NY; and 010101: Art in Technological Times, SF MoMA.

Special thanks to the Department of German & Scandinavian and the German Studies Committee in conjunction with their international conference on Feminism/Theory/Film.

March 2–July 21
Jordan Schnitzer Museum of Art (JSMA)

The exhibition features a selection of some of the most iconic images that symbolize the ideals of the Cuban Revolution by internationally renowned photographer Alberto Fernando Díaz Gutiérrez, better known as Alberto Korda, or simply Korda (1928-2001). This group of vintage photographs includes one of the most reproduced images in the world—Korda’s portrait of Ernesto “Che” Guevara titled Guerillero Heroíco, 1960. Originally part of the photographer’s personal collection, these works are on loan to the JSMA from the Collection of Dr. Steve Pieczenik and Dr. Roberta Rovner Pieczenik and Family, Chevy Chase, Maryland. In the 1950s, Korda excelled as a publicist and fashion photographer at Studios Korda in Havana.

In 1959, he changed his models from glamorous women to revolutionary heroes. In Korda’s last interview, conducted in Havana in January 2001, he stated, “I have loved the beauty of women as much as the beauty of the men who led the Revolution. The beauty of those men is not only aesthetic but also moral.” From 1959 to 1968, Korda enjoyed the trust and respect of Fidel Castro, and he accompanied Castro on all his national and international travels, photographing major political events as well as significant stages in the leader’s public and personal life. During this decade, Korda was not a photojournalist working for a publication or for the Cuban government, but an artist committed to his own artistic practice and to the ethics of Castro and the Cuban Revolution.

Also featured in the exhibition are several silkscreen prints published by Havana’s Organization of Solidarity with the People of Asia, Africa, and Latin America (OSPAAAL), a testament to Korda’s enduring influence on artists and other art forms in Cuba. The exhibition is co-curated by Cheryl Hartup, Associate Curator of Academic Programs and Latin American Art, and UO undergraduate history student Savannah Evans.

March 4 noon–1:00 p.m.
Condon Hall, 204


Please join AAGS for a lecture from Portland State University anthropologist Dr. Virginia Butler. Lunch will be provided. 

Dr. Butler received her B.A. in Anthropology at the University of Georgia, and her Masters (Anthropology) and Ph.D. (interdisciplinary studies) at the University of Washington. Virginia joined the Department of Anthropology at Portland State University in 1994. Her main research is in zooarchaeology (the study of animal remains found in archaeological sites) and is particularly interested in the role of fish in past human societies. Over the last 15 years, working on her own and in collaboration with others, she's studied fish remains from sites throughout the Pacific Northwest, the Great Basin of Nevada and California, and Oceania. Virginia's research falls in these main areas: taphonomy (the processes that control the deposition and preservation of animal remains), evolutionary ecology, applying ancient bone records to contemporary issues in conservation biology and public outreach.

A lecture/workshop on combining academic research and artistic filmmaking with:


Miriam Gossing and Lina Sieckmann.

Experimental film artists Miriam Gossing and Lina Sieckmann from Cologne, Germany, will present their work with mermaid activists from Portland, OR and teenage vampires from Forks, WA., and talk about the relationship of literature and film and the influence of folklore and fantasy. Their work uses documentary imagery, fiction, and found footage to inform the cinematographic presentation of architecture, hyper-staged environments as landscapes of desire.

Students are invited to engage in close dialogue and present their own ideas in working with film as a medium combining research and visual pleasure.

Race, Ethnicities, and Inequalities Colloquium.

Christen Smith, Associate Professor of African and African Diaspora Studies and Anthropology, University of Texas at Austin.

Christen Smith researches engendered anti-Black state violence and Black community responses to it in Brazil and the Americas. Her work primarily focuses on transnational anti-Black police violence, Black liberation struggles, the paradox of Black citizenship in the Americas, and the dialectic between the enjoyment of Black culture and the killing of Black people. Her book, Afro-Paradise: Blackness, Violence and Performance in Brazil uses the lens of performance to examine the immediate and long-term impact of police violence on the Black population of Salvador, Bahia, Brazil and the grassroots movement to denounce and end this violence. Her more recent, comparative work examines the lingering, deadly impact of police violence on black women in Brazil and the U.S.

Shadi Harouni: “Of Myth and Monument”

Shadi Harouni will consider the metaphysics of hope alive in contested bodies, forbidden objects, and forgotten histories. Her lecture looks at mountain and monument, both erected and imagined, as sites of humor and resistance, forgetting and despair. She will discuss the development of her practice and recent completed, ongoing and failed projects. 

Shadi Harouni is an artist based in New York and Tehran. Harouni's practice ranges from site-specific interventions and sculptures, to printmaking, photography, and film. Her research is centered on disavowed and marginalized histories of dissent and resistance, chiefly in the Middle East. Harouni’s projects have been exhibited at Queens Museum (NY), Kunstmuseum Bonn (DE), Prague City Gallery (CZ), University of Toronto (CA), Fondazione Ratti (IT), Elizabeth Foundation for the Arts (NY). Her work has been featured in Art Forum, The New York Times, The Guardian, Flash Art and Mousse, among others. She has been awarded a Gattuso Prize for Outstanding Exhibition, Harpo Foundation Grant for Artists, AIR Fellowship, residencies at Skowhegan (ME), SOMA (MX), LES Printshop (NY). Harouni holds an MFA from NYU (2011) and a BA from University of Southern California (2007). She serves as Visiting Assistant Professor and Director of the Undergraduate Program in Studio Art at New York University, Steinhardt.

Film Screening and Discussion with Shadi Harouni 

Free and open to all

__

The Lightest of Stones, 2015, HD video, Duration 15:55

A group of quarrymen look on, as the artist removes volcanic stones from the side of the mountain. They talk of dragons and myth, dreams of America and fears of ISIS. They draw parallels between their own precarious labor and representation and that of the artist who remains engrossed in this seemingly futile and perilous action. 

 

I Dream the Mountain is Still Whole, 2017, HD video, Duration 17:06

The film traces the history of Iranian Marxist revolutionaries who, barred from continuing their work as intellectuals, have, for decades, taken refuge in the isolated mountain quarries of Kurdistan to avoid the threat of arrest and execution. The mountain is the site of their untold stories, their labor, their endurance and hope.

March 9 2:00 p.m.–5:00 p.m.
Straub Hall

The University of Oregon has ideas worth spreading!  Join us as we showcase “Oregon grown” ideas.  Our theme, Just Us, offers some additional contemplation...  “There is no them, just us—all of us.”  The theme for TEDxUOregon 2019 is intended to lift the speakers and their stories. The takeaway: we have great ideas right here, and what can we each be doing to pay attention, listen, and lift those ideas up—your freshman roommate, the office manager in the EMU, your old English professor, etc. could all be holding some fantastic idea or story just waiting for someone to notice.  Perhaps there’s someone you’re sitting across from right now that just needs to be invited to share their story.  While “justice” conjures up equality, fairness, and the ways in which the law attempts to mediate those… “just us” moves it to a more local, active and communal level.  We need not wait for them—there is just us.

 

Tickets will be distributed via lottery, and are available to UO students, staff, faculty, alumni, and the general public. Consistent with TED’s mission to spread the ideas shared on our stage and the conversations that take place between attendees at the event, we are offering tickets to the event at no cost. The Ticket Lottery form will close on Wednesday, February 13th at 12:00pm. Winners will be notified by email.

We are also anticipating various watch parties to occur across campus. The live event will be simulcasted at various campus locations so that everyone who is unable to get a ticket to attend in person can watch the event in real time. We will list public watch parties on our website as they are added and confirmed. (Interested in organizing a watch party or associated event? Check out our Guide to Involvement and submit an Event Application.)

Each talk will be videoed and submitted to TED for approval and then published on the TEDx Talks YouTube channel. Talks typically take 4-6 weeks after the event to go live on YouTube. Links to all talks will also be available on tedx.uoregon.edu once published.

Straub Hall, 156

Alisa Roth, journalist and author of Insane: America’s Criminal Treatment of Mental Illness, will serve as the 2018–19 speaker for the University of Oregon’s Lorwin Lectureship on Civil Rights and Civil Liberties. Roth’s work is an investigation into the crisis of mental illness in the U.S. criminal justice system. She writes, “One of the most horrific—and least acknowledged—effects of mass incarceration is the epidemic of mental illness in our jails and prisons.” 

In uncovering this crisis, Roth traveled around the country to police departments, courts, jails, and emergency health-care facilities; interviewed current and former prisoners and their families, mental health professionals, lawyers, and police; and conducted research using public records and other source materials. She writes, “Mental illness affects every aspect of the criminal justice system—from policing, to the courts, to prisons, and beyond. Nor are the effects limited to the criminal justice system; many people with mental illness cycle back and forth between jail or prison and living in the community.” 

She continues, “People with mental illness are among the most disadvantaged members of our society, and when they end up in the criminal justice system, they tend to fare worse than others.” Roth hopes her work on this crisis will help “to end the abuses and to bring more compassion and common sense into the way we approach mental illness in our society.” 

Roth’s lecture is free and open to the public and will be live-streamed. For information, or disability accommodations (which must be made by March 5th), please call 541-346-3934 or contact ohc@uoregon.edu

Jordan Schnitzer Museum of Art (JSMA)

Love, faith and civil rights collide in a southern town as evangelical Christians and drag queens step into the spotlight to dismantle stereotypes. Taking a personal, and often comical look at negotiating differences between religion and belief through performance, political action, and partnership, gospel drag shows and passion plays set the stage for one hell of a show. "Without condescension, we hope to show that what is crass, campy, or even profane in the eyes of one group is sacred and full of communal significance in the eyes of another" (Donal Mosher and Michael Palmieri). Narrated by Mx Justin Vivian Bond and called "an act of formal and spiritual resurrection" by Eric Hynes (Film Comment). (Documentary, D: Donal Mosher and Micahel Palmieri, 75 min.)

The Schnitzer Cinema series is programmed by Richard Herskowitz, JSMA curator of media arts and Artist Director of the Ashland Independent Film Festival. All programs are free, with popcorn and refreshments provided!
