Striking Gold: Fuller at Fifty

  • Fuller Craft Museum - Stone and Barstow Galleries (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

Opening Reception: TBD

In honor of its esteemed fifty-year history, Fuller Craft Museum presents the exhibition Striking Gold. This invitational exhibition marks the institution’s “golden anniversary” as it probes the storied history of gold as an artistic material as well as its cultural, historical, and political associations. The inclusion of gold in the selected works reveals clear intention and purpose, rather than being used for purely decorative effect. In each case gold serves as the subject, as well as a material property of the work.

The exhibition is co-curated by Suzanne Ramljak, an art historian, writer, curator, and former editor of Metalsmith magazine, and Beth McLaughlin, Fuller Craft’s Chief Curator of Exhibitions and Collections.

Making a Difference: Social and Political Activism in Clay

Making a Difference: Social and Political Activism in Clay

Opening Reception: October 5, 2018

Making a Difference: Social and Political Activism in Clay will bring together a wide range of artists working in clay who directly address current events through their projects. At this moment of political uncertainty and a seeming turn of popular opinion toward negativity, fear, and isolation, we want The Clay Studio to counter these notions using our curatorial platform by amplifying the voices of diverse artists. Having a publication to document this exhibition will be especially powerful at this moment with the support of CraftNOW Philadelphia. CraftNOW’s Programming Committee, consisting of curators and makers representing over a dozen other exhibiting institutions, has adopted Making a Difference as the theme for the city-wide initiative in Fall 2018.  Through collective marketing and exposure, The Clay Studio will have the opportunity to share the Making a Difference narrative beyond our familiar audience.

The Incongruous Body at AMOCA

The Incongruous Body at AMOCA

  • American Museum of Ceramic Art (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

Curator: Tim Berg

The American Museum of Ceramic Art (AMOCA) is proud to present The Incongruous Body, curated by Tim Berg who brings together fourteen artists who represent, stylize, hybridize, and deconstruct the human body to starkly different comic effect. Their work is politically poignant and socially engaging; it uses observational humor and storytelling; it challenges the status quo; it defies logic; it misdirects; it exploits cultural iconography and historical references, and most of all it lays bare the inner workings of their wit. In this exposure, it invites the viewer to revel in the awkward, to embrace the weird and to scrutinize a little bit too closely themselves and the world of which we are all a part.

Featured Artists:
Robert Arneson, Molly Anne Bishop, Jeremy Brooks, Pattie Chalmers, Viola Frey, Future Retrieval, Alessandro Gallo, Taehoon Kim, Beth Lo, Elana Mann, Kristen Morgin, Kim Tucker, Matt Wedel, and Yoshitomo Nara

Discursive

  • Jordan Schnitzer Museum of Art (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

Opening Reception: TBA

Discursive features work—ranging from functional to sculptural, from performance to site-specific—created by UO faculty and visiting artists who participated in the 2016 Summer Craft Forum at the UO. During this two-week event, the participants – all of whom work in craft media, such as ceramics, metalsmithing, fibers, and printmaking – occupied UO studios to make art. During this period, they also engaged in group discussions about “craft” and its relationship to the discrete disciplines represented by the group and their individual practices. Discursive is, then, both the culmination of what was an extraordinary forum and an opportunity to deepen inquiry about contemporary craft discourses on campus and beyond. Artists whose works are featured in the exhibition include Tim Berg and Rebekah Myers, Noah Breuer, Sonja Dahl, Jovencio de la Paz, Brian Gillis, Yevgeniya Kaganovich, Anya Kivarkis, Ben Levy, Charlene Liu, Ian McDonald, Jeanne Medina, Stacy Jo Scott, and Lori Talcott. The exhibition is made possible with funding from the School of Art + Design and a JSMA Academic Support Grant.

MANIFESTO: A Modest Proposal

Opening Reception: Saturday, January, 20 3-5 pm, Nichols Gallery

MANIFESTO: A Modest Proposal is in opposition to grand, utopian declarations that amount to little more than holiday wishful thinking. MANIFESTO: A Modest Proposal demands the concrete and achievable instead of the pious platitude. We are taking the word at its word; we have ambitions and we plan to make these manifest. The words, images, and sounds that we make will become the foundation, pillars, and pediment of our future. Yet MANIFESTO: A Modest Proposal is focused on the here and now, on effective and attainable solutions to the profusion of sociopolitical, cultural, economic, and environmental issues that plague our lives and about which we can no longer remain silent...

We the People: Serving Notice

  • American Museum of Ceramic Art (map)

Opening Reception: Saturday, August 12, 6-9pm

Historically, museums have long been at the forefront of presenting and preserving our cultural values through their exhibitions and collections. Artists have reflected and documented what is happening in their communities and in society. Through their artwork, they have the opportunity to encourage contemplation, conversation, and/or action on some of the most important issues of our lifetime. With that said, AMOCA has invited artists from across the country to “serve notice” on a range of issues including: capital punishment; environmental protection; freedom of speech; gender equality; human rights; immigration; racism; wildlife protection; and women’s rights.

Tim Berg and Rebekah Myers: On the Bright Side...

  • Faulconer Gallery, Grinnell College (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

In a global cultural exchange routinely reduced to seconds-long sound bites and rapid-fire images, we often refer to "shiny objects" as those rare things that focus or capture our attention for a moment or two longer than usual. Tim Berg and Rebekah Myers, an artists' collaborative in Claremont, California, explore this phenomenon in their sculpture, casting everyday objects and animals in unexpected ways that provoke questions of materiality, surplus and rarity, and the consequences of 21st-century cultural consumers' desires.
