UNCOVERED is a solo exhibition featured at the Deparment of Art's Washburn Gallery. The exhibition's title is based on my interests in album covers driven by powerful photography, featuring the personal and expressive attitudes of music artists. This exhibition features a series of black and white portraits that uncover the much deeper stories of the photographed models.

Andrew Thomas Huang: “Queer Morphologies & Digital Spirits”
November 18
4:00 p.m.
Lawrence Hall 177

University of Oregon Fall 2021 Visiting Artist Lecture Series  

Presented by the Department of Art and Center for Art Research

Davis Family Lecture

This lecture will also live stream on the UO IS Media Services YouTube.

"Queer Morphologies & Digital Spirits" will share an overview of Huang's mixed media filmmaking career which interweaves live action, visual effects, puppetry and animation with his passion for folklore, mythology and queer futurism. The lecture will explore the process of world building and focus on the emergence of hybrid methodologies within one's visual practice. This talk will also explore how combining digital tools with performance can enable new forms of self-reinvention and the construction of digital identities.

Filmmaker and artist Andrew Thomas Huang crafts hybrid fantasy worlds and mythical dreamscapes. A Grammy-nominated music video director, Huang’s collaborators include Bjork, FKA Twigs and Thom Yorke among others. Serving as creative director for Bjork’s VR exhibition Bjork Digital, Huang created multiple immersive experiences for the pioneering traveling installation. His films have been commissioned by and exhibited at the Museum of Modern Art, NY, The Sydney Opera House and the Museum of Contemporary Art, LA. Inspired by his Chinese heritage and queer Asian mythology and folklore, Huang continues his foray into narrative with his first feature film TIGER GIRL which has received support from Film Independent and the Sundance Institute. Huang graduated with a degree in Fine Art and Animation from the University of Southern California.

This lecture is made possible by the Davis Family Endowed Fund in Art.

Dr. Mariachiara Gasparini - Across the Qinghai-Tibetan Plateau: Sino-Sogdian Textiles Beyond the Main Silk Routes
November 19
2:00–4:00 p.m.

In the 6th century, the circulation of silk and embroidered textiles with zoomorphic motifs, often enclosed in pearl medallions, influenced Eurasian art. Although they have been often mistaken as “Sasanian,” these textiles originated between Sogdiana and the western regions of China. However, only after the Islamization of Central Asia in the 8th century did these weavings evolve into new structures, and floral motifs were widely used to embellish or substitute the initial pearl medallions. By examining a group of 8th-9th-century weavings, which have recently appeared on the art market, in this paper, I discuss differences and variations between early and later structures and iconographic motifs. I argue that the Sogdian and Turko-Mongol trade might have also occurred beyond the main Silk Routes across the Qinghai-Tibetan plateau. In Sichuan and the ancient Bactria (between the Hindukush and the Oxus River), original Sogdian compositions might have been acquired and transformed to suit the early Tibetan (Tubo) empire. This paper presents the first results of a new project titled Across the Tuyuhun-Tubo Kingdom: Visualizing Material Culture from Dunhuang to Sichuan between the 6thand 9th centuries, which was recently awarded the Henry Luce Foundation/ACLS Program in China Studies Early Career Fellowship 21-22.

Gasparini is Assistant Professor of Chinese Art and Architectural History.

Center for Art Research Catalytic Conversation "Obsidian"
December 8
3:00 p.m.

Live on Zoom - register here.

Obsidian is an enigmatic, naturally occurring glass that has been used by cultures from Europe and the Middle East to Oceania and the Americas. CFAR’s Catalytic Conversations serve the practices of individuals and institutions related to art, craft, and design, by providing an opportunity to engage a small group of thinkers in ways that contribute to a project or line of thinking that is in progress. This installment in the series will contribute to the development of an issue of Material Intelligence, a new digital publication published by the Chipstone Foundation. This Catalytic Conversation and related publication will include a broad range of perspectives on Obsidian, drawn from the fields of contemporary art, earth sciences, mesoamerican studies, archeology, and indigenous knowledge. Our goal is to consider this material as a nexus of concerns, ranging from the aesthetic to the ethical. Panelists: Glenn Adamson (Moderator, Independent Curator and Critic) David Carballo (Mesoamericanist, Boston University)Tom Connolly (Archeologist, University of Oregon) Anita Grunder (Earth Scientist, Oregon State U.) Monique Pean (NY-Based Artist/Jewelry Designer) Joe Scott (Siletz Tribal Educator)
