Event Image EXHIBIT : PRINT THE LEGEND - The Real Story Behind Photographer Rocky Mountain Joe (Multi-Day Event)
All Day

A larger than life Buffalo Bill-like character, Joseph Bevier Sturtevant took on the alter ego of Rocky Mountain Joe when Chautauqua opened its doors in 1898. A skilled photographer and self-described Boulder icon promoting the romance of frontier life, Sturtevant sold the nostalgia of the Wild West to early 20th century tourists. Sturtevant skillfully created extravagant tales of growing up on the Western Frontier, fighting in the Civil War and battling Plains Indians that for more than 100 years went unquestioned.  

"Print the Legend: The Real Story Behind Photographer Rocky Mountain Joe" aims to separate the fact from fiction of Sturtevant’s life. The exhibit includes Sturtevant’s photographs and displays of painting tools and photography equipment similar to those that he would have used.  

One of Colorado’s most distinctive yet little-known photographers, Rocky Mountain Joe’s legend is timeless and his photographs open up a window to the past that still shapes our own nostalgic vision of an earlier time. His legacy lives on in the thousands of photographs he took in and around Boulder, making the town's history much richer through his artistic vision.

Event Image Anonymous: Contemporary Tibetan Art (Multi-Day Event)
All Day

February 14 – May 9, 2015
Opening reception Friday, February 13, 2015, 5-7pm

Anonymous: Contemporary Tibetan Art explores the tensions between an ancient culture's unbroken artistic tradition and the personality-driven contemporary art world. Historically, Himalayan works of art were used to support the transmission of Buddhism and rarely attributed to the individual artist. The artworks selected for Anonymous reflect how Tibetan artists around the world are examining questions of identity, self-expression and the roles of tradition in an increasingly globalized society.
Largely drawn from the Shelley and Donald Rubin Private Collection, the exhibition features painting, sculpture, installation, and new media works by artists living in the Himalayas and around the world. In addition to artists from Lhasa, others from Dharamsala, Kathmandu, New York City, Oakland, Paris, Thimphu, and Zürich provide for a range of diasporic perspectives on topics ranging from ideas of place to cultural appropriation, and the commodification of Buddhist traditions.
The majority of the video works presented in Anonymous were filmed in Lhasa and provide a window onto the current Tibetan experience. Exhibited without attribution, the videos in Anonymous approach themes of identity and self-expression from an alternate vantage point, embracing anonymity as an opportunity for open exploration and the presentation of often-censored imagery.
Many of the works were created expressly for this exhibition, which originated at the Samuel Dorsky Museum of Art at SUNY New Paltz, before travelling to The Fleming Museum of Art at the University of Vermont, and most recently the Queens Museum, New York.

In addition to Anonymous, and to highlight developments since its Waves on the Turquoise Lake in 2006 —the first museum exhibition dedicated to contemporary Himalayan art in America—CUAM will exhibit additional contemporary Tibetan works drawn from its permanent collection and loans from CU faculty members.

Anonymous: Contemporary Tibetan Art at the CU Art Museum is supported in part by the HBB Foundation, CU Art Museum members, and CU Boulder Student Arts and Cultural Enrichment (ACE) fees. 

Children, Youth and Environments Award (Multi-Day Event)

**CU Boulder faculty, staff, and graduate students are eligible**

The Children, Youth and Environments (CYE) Award will grant up to $4,500 to support a place-based participatory action research (PAR) project focused on young people aged 18 or younger. PAR in this context refers to participatory approaches that work with young people, in partnership, to carry out research and action. “Place-based” refers to projects that inquire into the lived physical environments of children and youth, whether these are neighborhoods, parks, schools, transportation and mobility, local businesses, or services. Preference will be given to projects that engage young people growing up in low-income neighborhoods and/or other circumstances of disadvantage. More information can be found here.

Event Image EXHIBIT: The Book’s Undoing: Dieter Roth’s Artist’s Books
10:00 AM - 4:00 PM

The Book’s Undoing: Dieter Roth’s Artist’s Books exhibit features Dieter Roth’s Gesammelte Werke (Collected Works), a 26-volume self-published catalog of reconstructed versions of his books.

Dieter Roth (1930-1998) was a poet, artist, and master printmaker. Born in Hannover, Germany to a Swiss father and German mother, Roth was evacuated at age 13 from war-torn Germany to Zürich. He began a pursuit of art and poetry during the several years he was separated from his parents. Roth’s innovative use of the book as an artistic medium has contributed to his reputation as one of the most original and imaginative post-war European book artists. Many of his books function as diaries documenting his daily activities and obsessive creative outpouring. Others, made by collaging accumulated studio waste, serve as tribute to his life and artistic pursuits. Launched in 1969, Gesammelte Werke took Roth over 10 years to complete and involved collecting, editing, revising, expanding, and in some cases embellishing his unique and previously published works. The Book’s Undoing: Dieter Roth’s Artist’s Books was curated by German PhD candidate Maggie Rosenau, who is also enrolled in the Museum Studies Certification Program.

Event Image "Cabaret's Moment in Jewish Music": Lunch and Learn with Philip Bohlman
12:00 PM - 1:30 PM

As part of the the Day of Radical Jewish Music, the Program in Jewish Studies and the College of Music are proud to present a faculty and student luncheon with renowned musicologist, Philip Bohlman.


Cabaret’s Moment in Jewish Music

Lunch and Learn with Philip Bohlman

Monday, March 30 @ 12:00PM – 1:30PM

Lunch provided by Program in Jewish Studies

RSVP to CUJewishStudies@colorado.edu for location and pre-circulated reading

 

Cabaret realizes a performative moment in which cultural, religious, and aesthetic differences converge upon a stage, both metaphorical and physical, mediated by music to reframe the narratives of the everyday and of history. Music mobilizes cabaret’s moment, what Professor Philip Bohlman call the cabaretesque, by opening the possibilities of transformation: identities change as sameness is enacted through the performance of otherness; a new dramatis personae accrues to narrative and drama; the backdrop of staged worlds becomes the mirror of lived-in worlds; social relations are turned upside-down and inside-out; the borders between the serious and the comic are blurred and blinded by the footlights. For several years, Bohlman has been developing the concept of the cabaretesque by drawing upon and expanding Mikhail Bakhtin’s notion of the carnavalesque, which also draws upon metaphor from a performative moment of social inversion and cultural transformation, albeit one departing from Christian ritual in European history.

 

The cabaretesque provides for exchange and encounter between the sacred and the secular in Jewish music. It serves to connect and mediate the performative in the triangulated cluster of stages variously called bima, Bühne, and bine, and it relocates sacred narrative from Jewish religious practice to secular history inseparable from the Jewish public sphere. Bohlman draws from his own research and performance as Artistic Director of the New Budapest Orpheum Society, an Ensemble-in-Residence at the University of Chicago, especially its most recent double-CD, As Dreams Fall Apart: The Golden Age of Jewish Stage and Film Music, 1925–1955 (Cedille Records, 2015), to illustrate the ways cabaret forges its moment in Jewish music. By moving from performance more closely toward theory, Bohlman proposes more specific ways in which the cabaretesque brings new perspectives to the understanding of Jewish music in history and Jewish history in music.

 

Philip Bohlman is Mary Werkman Distinguished Service Professor of Music and the Humanities at the University of Chicago. His teaching and research draw upon diverse methods and perspectives in music scholarship to forge an ethnomusicology built upon foundations in ethnography, history, and performance. He is particularly interested in exploring the interstices between music and religion, music, race, and colonial encounter, and music and nationalism. The study of Jewish music in modernity has provided a primary focus for his research for 35 years, and since 1998 has provided the context for his activities as a performer, both as the Artistic Director of the New Budapest Orpheum Society (a Jewish cabaret and ensemble-in-residence at the Humanities Division), and in stage performances with Christine Wilkie Bohlman (the College) of works for piano and dramatic speaker created during the Holocaust. With the New Budapest Orpheum Society, Phil has released four CDs, most recently As Dreams Fall Apart: The Golden Age of Jewish Stage and Film Music, 1925–1955 (Cedille Records 2014). His work in historical performance has been recognized with the Noah Greenberg Award from the American Musicological Society and the Donald Tovey Prize from Oxford University. Since 2008, Bohlman has been conducting research India, especially in Kolkata, Varanasi, and rural West Bengal. His research on the Eurovision Song Contest is ongoing. Bohlman's current research includes an introduction to the study of ethnomusicology for Cambridge University Press and a book on music and global nationalisms, for which he received a 2013 John Simon Guggenheim Memorial Fellowship.

Event Image Concert with Charming Hostess: The Ginzburg Geography: A Sonic Exploration of Italian Antifascism
7:00 PM - 9:00 PM

As part of this year's Weekend of Italian Jewish Culture and Day of Radical Jewish Music, join the Program in Jewish Studies, the Department of Italian, and the CU Art Museum for a public concert with Jewlia Eisenberg and Charming Hostess.

The Ginzburg Geography: A Sonic Exploration of Italian Antifascism

Concert with Jewlia Eisenberg and Charming Hostess

Monday, March 30 @ 7:00PM – 9:30PM

Old Main Theater

Free and open to the public
Please RSVP to CUJewishStudies@colorado.edu

Join us for the second of two concerts with Jewlia Eisenberg and Charming Hostess, exploring Italian antifascism. The show will also include spoken word in Italian and English by students in the Department of Italian and Program in Jewish Studies, as well as feature a bilingual Italian-English zine about Ginzburg by Jewish Studies major and Italian minor Shikari Browne.

 

The Ginzburg Geography is drawn from the life and work of Natalia and Leone Ginzburg, Italian Jews famous for anti-fascist resistance and intellectual brilliance. It is a sonic map focusing on where they lived together: Turin, Pizzoli, and Rome. Charming Hostess’ map refers to specific physical locations, but also resonates with the actions and relationships associated with those places, allowing a sense-memory of places in time. Much of the information in our map comes from the Ginzburgs’ writing on place.

 

The map of The Ginzburg Geography is new and traditional music drawing from the Italian regions of Piemonte, Abruzzo and Rome; from Italian Jewish liturgy, the oldest and most remote in Europe; and from Italian anti-fascist songs–work chants and resistance anthems. This iteration of The Ginzburg Geography is in concert form. It will soon be presented as an immersive performance that maps not only the journeys of the Ginzburgs, but also those of visitor participants, creating a sonic forest of maps to walk among, listen to, and add to.

 

Jewlia Eisenberg is a composer, extended-technique vocalist, lay cantor, and the founder of Charming Hostess. She is interested in the particular emotional, erotic and spiritual terrains that the voice can traverse. Her work explores the intersection of text and the sounding body, pushing for translation strategies between verbal and non-verbal languages. Collaborators include anarcholits Fantom Slobode, choreographer Jo Kreiter and filmmaker Lynn Sachs. Commissioned work includes Harmonices Mundi, an opera about Kepler’s mother, and Red Rosa, a song cycle based on the letters of Rosa Luxemburg. She has been an Artist-in-Residence at MIT and University of Denver; she has studied with sozanda Muna Nissimova, Fred Frith and Daniel Boyarin. Hobbies include class war, knitting, and smashing SUV windshields. Brooklyn born and bred, she now calls San Francisco home.

Event Image Shakespeare’s Lost Play (ages 12-18)
4:30 PM - 6:00 PM

We know Shakespeare wrote a play called Cardenio, and we know that his company performed it; we just don’t know what happened to the play. People have been searching for traces of this lost play for hundreds of years, but nobody really knows for sure what it really might have looked like. That’s all about to change. As a class, we will use some of the evidence that we do have about Cardenio and knowledge about how Shakespeare wrote characters and plot to recreate the lost play. This is a class where you will be working on your feet, creating the scenes and performing the characters that will make up our play. At the end of the class, you will perform our version of Cardenio, complete with costumes and props designed by the class.

Teachers: Kaily Anderson and Sarah Johnson

Event Image Build Group, Inc. Info Session
5:30 PM - 7:30 PM

Long time colleagues Ross Edwards, Eric Horn, Bob Hopper, Scott Brauninger, and Dave Williams came together in 2007 to form Build Group. Shortly thereafter, Nathan Rundel and Jason Berry joined the team. Combined, the group  has over 193 years of construction experience and has played integral roles in some of the most prominent and complex buildings constructed in California. The team formed Build Group with a goal of working closely with clients and driving innovation within the industry. With that in mind, they created a flat company structure that minimizes middle management, allowing the Principals to remain close to the work and entrusting employees to own their work. Their willingness to roll up their sleeves and do work has cultivated a construction company full of true revolutionary builders.

Event Image EXHIBIT : PRINT THE LEGEND - The Real Story Behind Photographer Rocky Mountain Joe (Multi-Day Event)
All Day

A larger than life Buffalo Bill-like character, Joseph Bevier Sturtevant took on the alter ego of Rocky Mountain Joe when Chautauqua opened its doors in 1898. A skilled photographer and self-described Boulder icon promoting the romance of frontier life, Sturtevant sold the nostalgia of the Wild West to early 20th century tourists. Sturtevant skillfully created extravagant tales of growing up on the Western Frontier, fighting in the Civil War and battling Plains Indians that for more than 100 years went unquestioned.  

"Print the Legend: The Real Story Behind Photographer Rocky Mountain Joe" aims to separate the fact from fiction of Sturtevant’s life. The exhibit includes Sturtevant’s photographs and displays of painting tools and photography equipment similar to those that he would have used.  

One of Colorado’s most distinctive yet little-known photographers, Rocky Mountain Joe’s legend is timeless and his photographs open up a window to the past that still shapes our own nostalgic vision of an earlier time. His legacy lives on in the thousands of photographs he took in and around Boulder, making the town's history much richer through his artistic vision.

Event Image Anonymous: Contemporary Tibetan Art (Multi-Day Event)
All Day

February 14 – May 9, 2015
Opening reception Friday, February 13, 2015, 5-7pm

Anonymous: Contemporary Tibetan Art explores the tensions between an ancient culture's unbroken artistic tradition and the personality-driven contemporary art world. Historically, Himalayan works of art were used to support the transmission of Buddhism and rarely attributed to the individual artist. The artworks selected for Anonymous reflect how Tibetan artists around the world are examining questions of identity, self-expression and the roles of tradition in an increasingly globalized society.
Largely drawn from the Shelley and Donald Rubin Private Collection, the exhibition features painting, sculpture, installation, and new media works by artists living in the Himalayas and around the world. In addition to artists from Lhasa, others from Dharamsala, Kathmandu, New York City, Oakland, Paris, Thimphu, and Zürich provide for a range of diasporic perspectives on topics ranging from ideas of place to cultural appropriation, and the commodification of Buddhist traditions.
The majority of the video works presented in Anonymous were filmed in Lhasa and provide a window onto the current Tibetan experience. Exhibited without attribution, the videos in Anonymous approach themes of identity and self-expression from an alternate vantage point, embracing anonymity as an opportunity for open exploration and the presentation of often-censored imagery.
Many of the works were created expressly for this exhibition, which originated at the Samuel Dorsky Museum of Art at SUNY New Paltz, before travelling to The Fleming Museum of Art at the University of Vermont, and most recently the Queens Museum, New York.

In addition to Anonymous, and to highlight developments since its Waves on the Turquoise Lake in 2006 —the first museum exhibition dedicated to contemporary Himalayan art in America—CUAM will exhibit additional contemporary Tibetan works drawn from its permanent collection and loans from CU faculty members.

Anonymous: Contemporary Tibetan Art at the CU Art Museum is supported in part by the HBB Foundation, CU Art Museum members, and CU Boulder Student Arts and Cultural Enrichment (ACE) fees. 

Children, Youth and Environments Award (Multi-Day Event)

Children, Youth and Environments Award (Due April 1)

**CU Boulder faculty, staff, and graduate students are eligible**

The Children, Youth and Environments (CYE) Award will grant up to $4,500 to support a place-based participatory action research (PAR) project focused on young people aged 18 or younger. PAR in this context refers to participatory approaches that work with young people, in partnership, to carry out research and action. “Place-based” refers to projects that inquire into the lived physical environments of children and youth, whether these are neighborhoods, parks, schools, transportation and mobility, local businesses, or services. Preference will be given to projects that engage young people growing up in low-income neighborhoods and/or other circumstances of disadvantage. More information can be found here.

Event Image EXHIBIT: The Book’s Undoing: Dieter Roth’s Artist’s Books
10:00 AM - 4:00 PM

The Book’s Undoing: Dieter Roth’s Artist’s Books exhibit features Dieter Roth’s Gesammelte Werke (Collected Works), a 26-volume self-published catalog of reconstructed versions of his books.

Dieter Roth (1930-1998) was a poet, artist, and master printmaker. Born in Hannover, Germany to a Swiss father and German mother, Roth was evacuated at age 13 from war-torn Germany to Zürich. He began a pursuit of art and poetry during the several years he was separated from his parents. Roth’s innovative use of the book as an artistic medium has contributed to his reputation as one of the most original and imaginative post-war European book artists. Many of his books function as diaries documenting his daily activities and obsessive creative outpouring. Others, made by collaging accumulated studio waste, serve as tribute to his life and artistic pursuits. Launched in 1969, Gesammelte Werke took Roth over 10 years to complete and involved collecting, editing, revising, expanding, and in some cases embellishing his unique and previously published works. The Book’s Undoing: Dieter Roth’s Artist’s Books was curated by German PhD candidate Maggie Rosenau, who is also enrolled in the Museum Studies Certification Program.

University of Colorado Boulder

Bradley J. Birzer, Visiting Scholar in Conservative Thought and Policy, will give a talk on Russell Amos Kirk (1918-1994). Kirk is widely recognized as the founder of post-WWII American conservatism.  An eccentric in personality and armed with a razor-sharp intellect and pen, Kirk helped radically transform American political culture in the 1950s and 1960.  Yet, contrary to many images associated with modern conservatism, Kirk sought what was humane, tasteful, literary, and cultured.  This talk will explore his personality as well as his astonishing literary and historical output.

This talk is free and open to the public.

CompSci Colloquium: Daniel Szafir (U. of Wisconsin-Madison)
3:30 PM - 4:30 PM

Unlocking the Assistive Potential of Emerging Technologies

ABSTRACT: We are currently seeing an unprecedented rise in the development and deployment of novel sensing and interactive technologies, driven by advances in robotics, wearable devices, and embedded microprocessors. While these technologies hold promise for aiding users in educational, workplace, and personal settings, gaps often exist between the core functionalities provided by new innovations and higher level user goals. Szafir seeks to understand and bridge these gaps by developing human-centered systems and techniques that blend computer science, robotics, engineering, and design to unlock the true assistive potential of emerging technologies. In this talk, he will outline three core aspects regarding the design of effective interactive technologies: ensuring the technology is expressive in form and behavior, providing functionality that aids users in mapping abstract goals to system capabilities, and supporting adaptability to complex interactions. He will describe several formative solutions aimed at connecting users and technologies that he has developed using this approach, which he grounds in the design of flying robotic systems and wearable technologies. In the course of this work, Szafir demonstrates how the integrated hardware and software systems he has designed enhance the utility of these technologies for real-world applications in environments ranging from classrooms to the International Space Station. 

BIO: Daniel Szafir is a PhD candidate in the Human-Computer Interaction Laboratory within the Department of Computer Sciences at the University of Wisconsin–Madison. He received Bachelor’s degrees in Computer Science and History at Boston College and his Master’s in Computer Science from UW–Madison. His work explores how we can leverage emerging interactive technologies, including small flying robots, wearable devices, and immersive virtual environments, to provide new forms of assistance to users in domains including collaborative work, education, and space exploration. He is a NASA National Space Technology Research Fellow and has received additional funding from Google. His work been featured in several media outlets, including New Scientist, Engadget, and Discovery News. More information can be found on his website: http://cs.wisc.edu/~dszafir

Event Image EXHIBIT : PRINT THE LEGEND - The Real Story Behind Photographer Rocky Mountain Joe (Multi-Day Event)
All Day

A larger than life Buffalo Bill-like character, Joseph Bevier Sturtevant took on the alter ego of Rocky Mountain Joe when Chautauqua opened its doors in 1898. A skilled photographer and self-described Boulder icon promoting the romance of frontier life, Sturtevant sold the nostalgia of the Wild West to early 20th century tourists. Sturtevant skillfully created extravagant tales of growing up on the Western Frontier, fighting in the Civil War and battling Plains Indians that for more than 100 years went unquestioned.  

"Print the Legend: The Real Story Behind Photographer Rocky Mountain Joe" aims to separate the fact from fiction of Sturtevant’s life. The exhibit includes Sturtevant’s photographs and displays of painting tools and photography equipment similar to those that he would have used.  

One of Colorado’s most distinctive yet little-known photographers, Rocky Mountain Joe’s legend is timeless and his photographs open up a window to the past that still shapes our own nostalgic vision of an earlier time. His legacy lives on in the thousands of photographs he took in and around Boulder, making the town's history much richer through his artistic vision.

Event Image Anonymous: Contemporary Tibetan Art (Multi-Day Event)
All Day

February 14 – May 9, 2015
Opening reception Friday, February 13, 2015, 5-7pm

Anonymous: Contemporary Tibetan Art explores the tensions between an ancient culture's unbroken artistic tradition and the personality-driven contemporary art world. Historically, Himalayan works of art were used to support the transmission of Buddhism and rarely attributed to the individual artist. The artworks selected for Anonymous reflect how Tibetan artists around the world are examining questions of identity, self-expression and the roles of tradition in an increasingly globalized society.
Largely drawn from the Shelley and Donald Rubin Private Collection, the exhibition features painting, sculpture, installation, and new media works by artists living in the Himalayas and around the world. In addition to artists from Lhasa, others from Dharamsala, Kathmandu, New York City, Oakland, Paris, Thimphu, and Zürich provide for a range of diasporic perspectives on topics ranging from ideas of place to cultural appropriation, and the commodification of Buddhist traditions.
The majority of the video works presented in Anonymous were filmed in Lhasa and provide a window onto the current Tibetan experience. Exhibited without attribution, the videos in Anonymous approach themes of identity and self-expression from an alternate vantage point, embracing anonymity as an opportunity for open exploration and the presentation of often-censored imagery.
Many of the works were created expressly for this exhibition, which originated at the Samuel Dorsky Museum of Art at SUNY New Paltz, before travelling to The Fleming Museum of Art at the University of Vermont, and most recently the Queens Museum, New York.

In addition to Anonymous, and to highlight developments since its Waves on the Turquoise Lake in 2006 —the first museum exhibition dedicated to contemporary Himalayan art in America—CUAM will exhibit additional contemporary Tibetan works drawn from its permanent collection and loans from CU faculty members.

Anonymous: Contemporary Tibetan Art at the CU Art Museum is supported in part by the HBB Foundation, CU Art Museum members, and CU Boulder Student Arts and Cultural Enrichment (ACE) fees.

Event Image EXHIBIT: The Book’s Undoing: Dieter Roth’s Artist’s Books
10:00 AM - 4:00 PM

The Book’s Undoing: Dieter Roth’s Artist’s Books exhibit features Dieter Roth’s Gesammelte Werke (Collected Works), a 26-volume self-published catalog of reconstructed versions of his books.

Dieter Roth (1930-1998) was a poet, artist, and master printmaker. Born in Hannover, Germany to a Swiss father and German mother, Roth was evacuated at age 13 from war-torn Germany to Zürich. He began a pursuit of art and poetry during the several years he was separated from his parents. Roth’s innovative use of the book as an artistic medium has contributed to his reputation as one of the most original and imaginative post-war European book artists. Many of his books function as diaries documenting his daily activities and obsessive creative outpouring. Others, made by collaging accumulated studio waste, serve as tribute to his life and artistic pursuits. Launched in 1969, Gesammelte Werke took Roth over 10 years to complete and involved collecting, editing, revising, expanding, and in some cases embellishing his unique and previously published works. The Book’s Undoing: Dieter Roth’s Artist’s Books was curated by German PhD candidate Maggie Rosenau, who is also enrolled in the Museum Studies Certification Program.

Title:
Contextuality and Random Variables from Quantum Mechanics to Psychology

Abstract: Probabilistic contextuality is an abstract system-theoretic notion with applications ranging from behavioral and social systems to quantum theory (where it includes, as a special case, nonlocality). We view it as a foundational concept of probability theory because contextuality is about identity of random variables. Contextuality-by-Default means that the identity of a random variable a priori  differs from one context to another, a context being defined by conditions under which it is recorded, in particular, by other random variables recorded together with it. Two random variables, R in context c and R’ in context c’ , if they are identically distributed, can sometimes be coupled (imposed a joint distribution on) so that their values differ with probability zero. If such a coupling does not exist, we say that the system involving R, R’, c, c’  (and, possibly, many other random variables in various contexts) is contextual. More generally, if R in context c and R’ in context c’ may be differently distributed, it is possible that they can be coupled so that the probability with which their values differ has the minimal value allowed by the difference in their distributions; if such a coupling does not exist, we say that the system involving R, R’, c, c’ is contextual. There are numerous mathematical tests (necessary conditions, and sometimes criteria) for determining whether a system is contextual. One of several possible measures of contextuality is based on the idea of computing the minimal probability with which R in context c may be unequal to R’ in context c’ when they are coupled.

Acknowledgments: The work has been supported by NSF grant SES-1155956 and AFOSR grant FA9550-14-1-0318. The presentation is based on joint work with Janne Kujala, with thanks to Jan-Åke Larsson, Acacio de Barros, and Gary Oas.

One of Colorado’s most distinctive yet little-known photographers, Rocky Mountain Joe’s legend is timeless and his photographs open up a window to the past that still shapes our own nostalgic vision of an earlier time. His legacy lives on in the thousands of photographs he took in and around Boulder, making the town's history much richer through his artistic vision.

Event Image Anonymous: Contemporary Tibetan Art (Multi-Day Event)
All Day

February 14 – May 9, 2015
Opening reception Friday, February 13, 2015, 5-7pm

Anonymous: Contemporary Tibetan Art explores the tensions between an ancient culture's unbroken artistic tradition and the personality-driven contemporary art world. Historically, Himalayan works of art were used to support the transmission of Buddhism and rarely attributed to the individual artist. The artworks selected for Anonymous reflect how Tibetan artists around the world are examining questions of identity, self-expression and the roles of tradition in an increasingly globalized society.
Largely drawn from the Shelley and Donald Rubin Private Collection, the exhibition features painting, sculpture, installation, and new media works by artists living in the Himalayas and around the world. In addition to artists from Lhasa, others from Dharamsala, Kathmandu, New York City, Oakland, Paris, Thimphu, and Zürich provide for a range of diasporic perspectives on topics ranging from ideas of place to cultural appropriation, and the commodification of Buddhist traditions.
The majority of the video works presented in Anonymous were filmed in Lhasa and provide a window onto the current Tibetan experience. Exhibited without attribution, the videos in Anonymous approach themes of identity and self-expression from an alternate vantage point, embracing anonymity as an opportunity for open exploration and the presentation of often-censored imagery.
Many of the works were created expressly for this exhibition, which originated at the Samuel Dorsky Museum of Art at SUNY New Paltz, before travelling to The Fleming Museum of Art at the University of Vermont, and most recently the Queens Museum, New York.

In addition to Anonymous, and to highlight developments since its Waves on the Turquoise Lake in 2006 —the first museum exhibition dedicated to contemporary Himalayan art in America—CUAM will exhibit additional contemporary Tibetan works drawn from its permanent collection and loans from CU faculty members.

Anonymous: Contemporary Tibetan Art at the CU Art Museum is supported in part by the HBB Foundation, CU Art Museum members, and CU Boulder Student Arts and Cultural Enrichment (ACE) fees.

Event Image EXHIBIT: The Book’s Undoing: Dieter Roth’s Artist’s Books
10:00 AM - 4:00 PM

The Book’s Undoing: Dieter Roth’s Artist’s Books exhibit features Dieter Roth’s Gesammelte Werke (Collected Works), a 26-volume self-published catalog of reconstructed versions of his books.

Dieter Roth (1930-1998) was a poet, artist, and master printmaker. Born in Hannover, Germany to a Swiss father and German mother, Roth was evacuated at age 13 from war-torn Germany to Zürich. He began a pursuit of art and poetry during the several years he was separated from his parents. Roth’s innovative use of the book as an artistic medium has contributed to his reputation as one of the most original and imaginative post-war European book artists. Many of his books function as diaries documenting his daily activities and obsessive creative outpouring. Others, made by collaging accumulated studio waste, serve as tribute to his life and artistic pursuits. Launched in 1969, Gesammelte Werke took Roth over 10 years to complete and involved collecting, editing, revising, expanding, and in some cases embellishing his unique and previously published works. The Book’s Undoing: Dieter Roth’s Artist’s Books was curated by German PhD candidate Maggie Rosenau, who is also enrolled in the Museum Studies Certification Program.

Event Image EXHIBIT : PRINT THE LEGEND - The Real Story Behind Photographer Rocky Mountain Joe (Multi-Day Event)
All Day

A larger than life Buffalo Bill-like character, Joseph Bevier Sturtevant took on the alter ego of Rocky Mountain Joe when Chautauqua opened its doors in 1898. A skilled photographer and self-described Boulder icon promoting the romance of frontier life, Sturtevant sold the nostalgia of the Wild West to early 20th century tourists. Sturtevant skillfully created extravagant tales of growing up on the Western Frontier, fighting in the Civil War and battling Plains Indians that for more than 100 years went unquestioned.  

"Print the Legend: The Real Story Behind Photographer Rocky Mountain Joe" aims to separate the fact from fiction of Sturtevant’s life. The exhibit includes Sturtevant’s photographs and displays of painting tools and photography equipment similar to those that he would have used.

We know Shakespeare wrote a play called Cardenio, and we know that his company performed it; we just don’t know what happened to the play. People have been searching for traces of this lost play for hundreds of years, but nobody really knows for sure what it really might have looked like. That’s all about to change. As a class, we will use some of the evidence that we do have about Cardenio and knowledge about how Shakespeare wrote characters and plot to recreate the lost play. This is a class where you will be working on your feet, creating the scenes and performing the characters that will make up our play. At the end of the class, you will perform our version of Cardenio, complete with costumes and props designed by the class.

Salary Negotiation Strategies for Women
6:00 PM - 7:30 PM

Women make up more than half the labor force, are as qualified as men, and yet, earn roughly 80 cents to every dollar a man makes.  Multiple studies have shown that by failing to negotiate salary and pursue promotions, it can cost women more than an estimated half a million dollars in earnings over the course of their career.  Experts debate the reasons for these inequities. It is up to each woman to achieve pay equity on her own. No law or employer is going to do it for her. The reluctance of women to advocate for themselves or concerns about how they will be perceived by an employer is often the difference between climbing the corporate ladder and not climbing it at all.

Whether you are a female student looking for your first job or an alumna who is looking to move up in your career, this panel discussion is for you!  Come hear from female panelists with extensive professional experience in HR, Talent Acquisition, and/or managers with hiring authority speak about strategies and techniques to successfully negotiate salary as a woman.

Captives have been found in societies of all social levels throughout time, possibly as early as the Neolithic era. Captives had the potential to be an important force for cultural transmission. Archaeologists are just beginning to recognize and explore this important form of cultural interaction. As part of the Archaeological Institute of America (AIA) lecuture series, Dr. Cameron will use case studies from around the world to discuss the prevalence and antiquity of captive-taking, in addition to who is taken captive and what happens to them. Dr. Cameron will also explore the presence of captive women in Chaco Canyon, New Mexico, during the height of the Chaco Era (900-1150 AD).

Event Image EXHIBIT : PRINT THE LEGEND - The Real Story Behind Photographer Rocky Mountain Joe (Multi-Day Event)
All Day

A larger than life Buffalo Bill-like character, Joseph Bevier Sturtevant took on the alter ego of Rocky Mountain Joe when Chautauqua opened its doors in 1898. A skilled photographer and self-described Boulder icon promoting the romance of frontier life, Sturtevant sold the nostalgia of the Wild West to early 20th century tourists. Sturtevant skillfully created extravagant tales of growing up on the Western Frontier, fighting in the Civil War and battling Plains Indians that for more than 100 years went unquestioned.  

"Print the Legend: The Real Story Behind Photographer Rocky Mountain Joe" aims to separate the fact from fiction of Sturtevant’s life. The exhibit includes Sturtevant’s photographs and displays of painting tools and photography equipment similar to those that he would have used.  

One of Colorado’s most distinctive yet little-known photographers, Rocky Mountain Joe’s legend is timeless and his photographs open up a window to the past that still shapes our own nostalgic vision of an earlier time. His legacy lives on in the thousands of photographs he took in and around Boulder, making the town's history much richer through his artistic vision.

Event Image Anonymous: Contemporary Tibetan Art (Multi-Day Event)
All Day

February 14 – May 9, 2015
Opening reception Friday, February 13, 2015, 5-7pm

Anonymous: Contemporary Tibetan Art explores the tensions between an ancient culture's unbroken artistic tradition and the personality-driven contemporary art world. Historically, Himalayan works of art were used to support the transmission of Buddhism and rarely attributed to the individual artist. The artworks selected for Anonymous reflect how Tibetan artists around the world are examining questions of identity, self-expression and the roles of tradition in an increasingly globalized society.
Largely drawn from the Shelley and Donald Rubin Private Collection, the exhibition features painting, sculpture, installation, and new media works by artists living in the Himalayas and around the world. In addition to artists from Lhasa, others from Dharamsala, Kathmandu, New York City, Oakland, Paris, Thimphu, and Zürich provide for a range of diasporic perspectives on topics ranging from ideas of place to cultural appropriation, and the commodification of Buddhist traditions.
The majority of the video works presented in Anonymous were filmed in Lhasa and provide a window onto the current Tibetan experience. Exhibited without attribution, the videos in Anonymous approach themes of identity and self-expression from an alternate vantage point, embracing anonymity as an opportunity for open exploration and the presentation of often-censored imagery.
Many of the works were created expressly for this exhibition, which originated at the Samuel Dorsky Museum of Art at SUNY New Paltz, before travelling to The Fleming Museum of Art at the University of Vermont, and most recently the Queens Museum, New York.

In addition to Anonymous, and to highlight developments since its Waves on the Turquoise Lake in 2006 —the first museum exhibition dedicated to contemporary Himalayan art in America—CUAM will exhibit additional contemporary Tibetan works drawn from its permanent collection and loans from CU faculty members.

Anonymous: Contemporary Tibetan Art at the CU Art Museum is supported in part by the HBB Foundation, CU Art Museum members, and CU Boulder Student Arts and Cultural Enrichment (ACE) fees.

Event Image EXHIBIT: The Book’s Undoing: Dieter Roth’s Artist’s Books
10:00 AM - 4:00 PM

The Book’s Undoing: Dieter Roth’s Artist’s Books exhibit features Dieter Roth’s Gesammelte Werke (Collected Works), a 26-volume self-published catalog of reconstructed versions of his books.

Dieter Roth (1930-1998) was a poet, artist, and master printmaker. Born in Hannover, Germany to a Swiss father and German mother, Roth was evacuated at age 13 from war-torn Germany to Zürich. He began a pursuit of art and poetry during the several years he was separated from his parents. Roth’s innovative use of the book as an artistic medium has contributed to his reputation as one of the most original and imaginative post-war European book artists. Many of his books function as diaries documenting his daily activities and obsessive creative outpouring. Others, made by collaging accumulated studio waste, serve as tribute to his life and artistic pursuits. Launched in 1969, Gesammelte Werke took Roth over 10 years to complete and involved collecting, editing, revising, expanding, and in some cases embellishing his unique and previously published works. The Book’s Undoing: Dieter Roth’s Artist’s Books was curated by German PhD candidate Maggie Rosenau, who is also enrolled in the Museum Studies Certification Program.

Lyrics by Tim Rice, Music by Andrew Lloyd Webber
Directed by Cecilia Pang

Ever since the controversial rock opera by Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice was released as a concept album in 1970, it has enflamed the passions of critics and fans alike. The story of Jesus of Nazareth during his final days, from the time of his arrival in Jerusalem to his crucifixion, this high-energy, immensely popular show plunges deep into the hearts of the men and women, from Judas Iscariot to Mary Magdalene to Pontius Pilate, who played a part in one of the most momentous stories ever told.

Event Image EXHIBIT : PRINT THE LEGEND - The Real Story Behind Photographer Rocky Mountain Joe (Multi-Day Event)
All Day

A larger than life Buffalo Bill-like character, Joseph Bevier Sturtevant took on the alter ego of Rocky Mountain Joe when Chautauqua opened its doors in 1898. A skilled photographer and self-described Boulder icon promoting the romance of frontier life, Sturtevant sold the nostalgia of the Wild West to early 20th century tourists. Sturtevant skillfully created extravagant tales of growing up on the Western Frontier, fighting in the Civil War and battling Plains Indians that for more than 100 years went unquestioned.  

"Print the Legend: The Real Story Behind Photographer Rocky Mountain Joe" aims to separate the fact from fiction of Sturtevant’s life. The exhibit includes Sturtevant’s photographs and displays of painting tools and photography equipment similar to those that he would have used.  

One of Colorado’s most distinctive yet little-known photographers, Rocky Mountain Joe’s legend is timeless and his photographs open up a window to the past that still shapes our own nostalgic vision of an earlier time. His legacy lives on in the thousands of photographs he took in and around Boulder, making the town's history much richer through his artistic vision.

Event Image Anonymous: Contemporary Tibetan Art (Multi-Day Event)
All Day

February 14 – May 9, 2015
Opening reception Friday, February 13, 2015, 5-7pm

Anonymous: Contemporary Tibetan Art explores the tensions between an ancient culture's unbroken artistic tradition and the personality-driven contemporary art world. Historically, Himalayan works of art were used to support the transmission of Buddhism and rarely attributed to the individual artist. The artworks selected for Anonymous reflect how Tibetan artists around the world are examining questions of identity, self-expression and the roles of tradition in an increasingly globalized society.
Largely drawn from the Shelley and Donald Rubin Private Collection, the exhibition features painting, sculpture, installation, and new media works by artists living in the Himalayas and around the world. In addition to artists from Lhasa, others from Dharamsala, Kathmandu, New York City, Oakland, Paris, Thimphu, and Zürich provide for a range of diasporic perspectives on topics ranging from ideas of place to cultural appropriation, and the commodification of Buddhist traditions.
The majority of the video works presented in Anonymous were filmed in Lhasa and provide a window onto the current Tibetan experience. Exhibited without attribution, the videos in Anonymous approach themes of identity and self-expression from an alternate vantage point, embracing anonymity as an opportunity for open exploration and the presentation of often-censored imagery.
Many of the works were created expressly for this exhibition, which originated at the Samuel Dorsky Museum of Art at SUNY New Paltz, before travelling to The Fleming Museum of Art at the University of Vermont, and most recently the Queens Museum, New York.

In addition to Anonymous, and to highlight developments since its Waves on the Turquoise Lake in 2006 —the first museum exhibition dedicated to contemporary Himalayan art in America—CUAM will exhibit additional contemporary Tibetan works drawn from its permanent collection and loans from CU faculty members.

Anonymous: Contemporary Tibetan Art at the CU Art Museum is supported in part by the HBB Foundation, CU Art Museum members, and CU Boulder Student Arts and Cultural Enrichment (ACE) fees.
