Event Image Fall 2011 MFA Graduate Thesis Show
10:00 AM - 7:00 PM

The CU Art Museum and the Department of Art & Art History present the Fall 2011 Graduate Thesis Show, held in the Projects Gallery of the CU Art Museum building, part of the Visual Arts Complex on the University of Colorado Boulder campus.

About the artists:

Max Bernstein
Max Bernstein's multi-channel, video installations are situated at the crossroads of cinema, theater, and performance. The meandering narratives explore existential ontology, phenomenological inquiry, and semi-autobiographical content. Without the perimeters of a traditional narrative, Bernstein creates a space for the inclusion of the spectator and their presence functions as critical aspect for the resolution of the work.  

Karin Davis
Davis makes abstract sculpture influenced by nature, the process of drawing, and the potential of empty space.  Blending formalism with unconventional materials, emotional content, and humor, she explores the potential of the art object to stimulate the senses and nurture a fuller human experience. 

Tobias Fike 
Tobias Fike looks to human physiology, family relationships and the cosmos for inspiration and material. By focusing on the minutiae of these larger entities, he asks himself and the viewer to rethink what is already known.

Melissa Gordon
Gordon's embroideries are miniature spaces that weave together narrative with ornamentation in thousands of minute stitches.  Through the reinterpretation of the etiological myth of Hagar and Sarah, Gordon's work creates new commentary on the history and language of embroidery as well as redefines the controversial myth that divides Islamic and Judeo-Christian worlds. 

Matthew Harris 
In projects as varied as coating a floor with corn syrup to dragging a friend across the desert, Harris explores not only his physical relationship to the world, but also his mental relationship to it. In hopes of finding expressions that are not taught but discovered through actual experience, Harris relies on his intuition in creating works that playfully question how society values time, intelligence, and beauty. 

Dawn Hollison 
Dawn Hollison uses the moving image for the poetic exploration of narrative structures. Her work draws upon questions about the nature of visual language, while examining themes of allegory, myth, and archetypes.

Matthew Weedman 
Matthew Weedman’s practice consists of an habitual, bordering on compulsive, exquisite corpse of research; digging through antique stores, scouring the internet, questioning family, friends and strangers, searching through personal and public documents, wandering areas of commerce, eavesdropping conversations, cataloging social behaviors, reading historical and theoretical based texts, all while frantically trying to draw lines of connection to fuel the never-ending quest of understanding.  

Casey Whittier 
Hundreds of white daisies cover a glowing sugar coated landscape. A shell of their mortal selves, they serve as reminders of the opposites desires that exist at core of mortal consciousness: the infinite and the ephemeral, the eidetic and the distorted, mortality and preservation. Casey Whittier’s work explores the psychological and physical relationship to notions of landscape, sense of place, beauty, loss and longing.

Event Image Points of View: Selections from Seven Colorado Collections

Event Image The Anxiety of Influence: Selections from the CU Art Museum's Ceramics Collection
10:00 AM - 7:00 PM

Curated by Lisa Tamiris Becker, Director, CU Art Museum and Kim Dickey, Professor, Department of Art and Art History, University of Colorado Boulder
 
Drawing on Harold Bloom's seminal work of poetic criticism,  "The Anxiety of Influence," to interpret the significant role that "influence" plays within the global history, culture, and tradition of ceramics, this exhibition will present Modern and Contemporary Ceramics as well as selected historic works from the CU Art Museum's permanent collection. The exhibition will feature major pieces by Scott Chamberlin, Rick Dillingham, Arthur Gonzalez, Wayne Higby, Anne Kraus, Graham Marks, Jim Melchert, Linda Sikora, Suo Tan, Peter Voulkos, Betty Woodman and many others. The exhibition will also include works on paper by noted ceramic artists such as Robert Arneson and Ken Price to further explore the conceptual, aesthetic, and methodological influences on Modern and Contemporary ceramic artists. While many previous exhibitions have chronicled the decorative and technological influences of various ceramic traditions as they travelled across Eastern and Western cultures, this exhibition is the first to apply Bloom's complicated post-Freudian theories of "influence" to the realm of ceramics and its poetics, in order to construct a more complex understanding of the medium.
Boulder's Cultural Map: Community Arts Organizations and Civic Engagement
11:00 AM - 12:15 PM

Culture is a touchstone for inclusivity but are our cultural organizations inclusive? This session brings involves the audience and invited guests in identifying gaps, creating an inclusive cultural map that generates pathways for cultural information sharing and increased collaboration.

11:00 AM - 12:15 PM

Stereotype threat – what is it and how does it build barriers? In this workshop, participants learn what stereotype threat is, how it manifests within a community, and strategies to counter stereotype threat that can be used in daily life.
This is All You See
11:00 AM - 12:15 PM

When you see someone with a visible disability, what do you see? The disability or the person? Using interactive theater, this session offers typical scenarios faced by people with disabilities. The audience will then respond with how they would react in that particular situation. In addition to encouraging people to look beyond the disability, this session also provides participants with specific tools to change their perception and behavior.

These roundtable discussions relate directly to the goals of the Summit itself, and ask the question, what are the next steps in improving faculty diversity?
Deconstructing Gender
12:30 PM - 1:45 PM

GLBTQ Resource Center Peer Education Team Where do messages of gender come from? How do messages of gender impose roles and norms on individuals that don’t conform to traditional notions of gender?

For Anyone Who Has Ever Been Embarrassed by Their Own Thoughts about Race and Ethnicity
12:30 PM - 1:45 PM

Have you ever wondered where those unwanted ideas about race and ethnicity come from? This workshop will present a model for making sense of such ideas and how to interrupt them.

The CU Dialogues Project: Building Community through Cross-Cultural Dialogue in the Residential Acad
12:30 PM - 1:45 PM

Building community, bringing people together and bridging differences – this is what the CU Dialogues project does.

First-generation Students at CU: Findings from a Research Project Conducted by First Generation Stud
3:30 PM - 4:45 PM

Six CU students, five of whom are first-generation students, conducted a semester-long interview project examining the experiences, strengths, and challenges of students who are the first in their family to go to college.

Event Image Visiting Artist Lecture Series: Spencer Finch
7:00 PM - 8:30 PM

Finch carefully records the invisible world, while simultaneously striving to understand what might lie beyond it. Whether he is relying on his own powers of observation or using a colorimeter, a device that reads the average color and temperature of light, the artist employs a scientific method to achieve poetic ends.

His work reinforces the fleeting, temporal nature of the observed world, illustrating his own version of a theory of relativity.

The Visiting Artist Program has been a vital component of the Department of Art & Art History since 1972. Each year, 8–10 nationally recognized artists present diverse ideas and their body of work during their visit to the Boulder campus.

Event Image The Anxiety of Influence: Selections from the CU Art Museum's Ceramics Collection
10:00 AM - 5:00 PM

Curated by Lisa Tamiris Becker, Director, CU Art Museum and Kim Dickey, Professor, Department of Art and Art History, University of Colorado Boulder
 
Drawing on Harold Bloom's seminal work of poetic criticism,  "The Anxiety of Influence," to interpret the significant role that "influence" plays within the global history, culture, and tradition of ceramics, this exhibition will present Modern and Contemporary Ceramics as well as selected historic works from the CU Art Museum's permanent collection. The exhibition will feature major pieces by Scott Chamberlin, Rick Dillingham, Arthur Gonzalez, Wayne Higby, Anne Kraus, Graham Marks, Jim Melchert, Linda Sikora, Suo Tan, Peter Voulkos, Betty Woodman and many others. The exhibition will also include works on paper by noted ceramic artists such as Robert Arneson and Ken Price to further explore the conceptual, aesthetic, and methodological influences on Modern and Contemporary ceramic artists. While many previous exhibitions have chronicled the decorative and technological influences of various ceramic traditions as they travelled across Eastern and Western cultures, this exhibition is the first to apply Bloom's complicated post-Freudian theories of "influence" to the realm of ceramics and its poetics, in order to construct a more complex understanding of the medium.

The City of Boulder Human Rights Ordinance and Failure to Pay Wages Ordinance
11:00 AM - 11:50 AM

This presentation will familiarize attendees with the process of establishing and administering additional protected classes over time. The city’s Failure to Pay Wages Ordinance which gives the city the power to protect lower income, often minority workers who work in less stable, lower income service professions will be highlighted.

Turning Difference into Productivity: Steps to Better Conversations
2:00 PM - 3:15 PM

Diversity programs are often based on social justice, advancement of historically disadvantaged groups, or desire for inclusivity. Often hidden in this is the way “difference” adds “value” to relationships and organizations. Value is built or destroyed based on how people deal with their differences. When individuals and groups use differences to enhance change and creativity, they produce value. Value production through interaction, however, is not automatic with simple contact. It is a highly skilled activity. This interactive session will focus on developing conversational practices that turn difference into greater productivity including job performance and quality of life.

Event Image Fall 2011 MFA Graduate Thesis Show
10:00 AM - 5:00 PM

The CU Art Museum and the Department of Art & Art History present the Fall 2011 Graduate Thesis Show, held in the Projects Gallery of the CU Art Museum building, part of the Visual Arts Complex on the University of Colorado Boulder campus.

About the artists:

Max Bernstein
Max Bernstein's multi-channel, video installations are situated at the crossroads of cinema, theater, and performance. The meandering narratives explore existential ontology, phenomenological inquiry, and semi-autobiographical content. Without the perimeters of a traditional narrative, Bernstein creates a space for the inclusion of the spectator and their presence functions as critical aspect for the resolution of the work.  

Karin Davis
Davis makes abstract sculpture influenced by nature, the process of drawing, and the potential of empty space.  Blending formalism with unconventional materials, emotional content, and humor, she explores the potential of the art object to stimulate the senses and nurture a fuller human experience. 

Tobias Fike 
Tobias Fike looks to human physiology, family relationships and the cosmos for inspiration and material. By focusing on the minutiae of these larger entities, he asks himself and the viewer to rethink what is already known.

Melissa Gordon
Gordon's embroideries are miniature spaces that weave together narrative with ornamentation in thousands of minute stitches.  Through the reinterpretation of the etiological myth of Hagar and Sarah, Gordon's work creates new commentary on the history and language of embroidery as well as redefines the controversial myth that divides Islamic and Judeo-Christian worlds. 

Matthew Harris 
In projects as varied as coating a floor with corn syrup to dragging a friend across the desert, Harris explores not only his physical relationship to the world, but also his mental relationship to it. In hopes of finding expressions that are not taught but discovered through actual experience, Harris relies on his intuition in creating works that playfully question how society values time, intelligence, and beauty. 

Dawn Hollison 
Dawn Hollison uses the moving image for the poetic exploration of narrative structures. Her work draws upon questions about the nature of visual language, while examining themes of allegory, myth, and archetypes.

Matthew Weedman 
Matthew Weedman’s practice consists of an habitual, bordering on compulsive, exquisite corpse of research; digging through antique stores, scouring the internet, questioning family, friends and strangers, searching through personal and public documents, wandering areas of commerce, eavesdropping conversations, cataloging social behaviors, reading historical and theoretical based texts, all while frantically trying to draw lines of connection to fuel the never-ending quest of understanding.  

Casey Whittier 
Hundreds of white daisies cover a glowing sugar coated landscape. A shell of their mortal selves, they serve as reminders of the opposites desires that exist at core of mortal consciousness: the infinite and the ephemeral, the eidetic and the distorted, mortality and preservation. Casey Whittier’s work explores the psychological and physical relationship to notions of landscape, sense of place, beauty, loss and longing.

Along the way, we'll explore Einstein's relativity, Hubble's greatest discovery, and the research that won the 2011 Physics Nobel Prize. Come and find out what we know--and don't know--about the origin and fate of our universe.
