January 28 6:30 p.m.
Portland Art Museum, Whitsell Auditorium

Over the course of An Evening with Garth Clark, this distinguished scholar, critic, and provocateur will deliver A Necessary Irritant, a roller coaster ride through the Ceramic Revolution. Drawing on over 80 books, 400 monographs, essays, and reviews he has authored over the past five decades, Clark’s presentation weaves together his biography with seminal moments in 20th and 21st century contemporary ceramic art. This is the first West Coast stop on an international tour that has taken Clark through the UK, Australia, US, and Canada. Clark's last talk in Portland on October 15, 2008, the provocative How Envy Killed the Crafts, went viral globally and was translated into more than 12 languages, produced a book, and was included in numerous anthologies. This event is organized in collaboration with Eutectic Gallery and the University of Oregon’s Center for Art Research (CFAR), and hosted by the Northwest Art Council and supported by the University of Oregon's Robert James Ceramics Foundation.

 

Garth Clark, known for his wit, deep scholarship, and innovative curatorial projects, has been a leading voice in contemporary Craft and Ceramics since the 1970s. Clark first discovered his interest in Ceramic Art during his upbringing in South Africa. After receiving his master’s degree from the Royal College of Art, London, in modern ceramic history he became an expert in British pottery and is responsible for some of the field’s most seminal works about 19th, 20th, and 21stcentury Ceramics. He co-founded and co-operated Garth Clark Gallery in Los Angeles, Kansas City, New York London with Marc Del Vecchio for 27 years before becoming the founding Editor-in-Chief of CFile Foundation, an online journal and publishing enterprise.

January 29 2:00 p.m.–3:00 p.m.
Baker Downtown Center, Alaska-Mexico

The fire at Notre Dame in Paris has sparked a renewed interest in European cathedrals. We will examine the expression of the sacred through architectural space, style and symbolism, in seven of Europe’s greatest buildings, in Paris, London, Rome, Florence, Cordoba and Istanbul.

About the presenter: A specialist in Italian art of the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries, James Harper holds a PhD in the History of Art from the University of Pennsylvania. Harper is the Director of the University of Oregon's interdisciplinary Museum Studies Program.

Namita Gupta Wiggers: “One Hundred Lifetimes and A Day”

"Research is both process and product, and I want to practice different ways of telling the story of how craft research fills my days -- and lengthens my years  -- with you.

A colleague of mine showed me how he reads a forest, pointing out what shows itself now after 100 years of growth, and mapping a vision of what will come 100 years from now. It brought sculptor James Surls to my mind, who once said,  'I make objects. It takes so long. It would take me a lifetime to build just what I can dream in one day. I want a hundred lifetimes and one day.'

For a decade, my days were about making exhibitions in a craft museum.Today, my work is about research. I develop a low-residency graduate program focused on craft histories and theory, where a day’s work of teaching may not surface for years. Now, my writing lives mostly in words, not spatial essays -- and is not so photogenic." - Namita Gupta Wiggers, 2019

Namita Gupta Wiggers is a writer, curator, and educator based in Portland, OR. She is the Director of the recently launched Master of Arts in Craft Studies at Warren Wilson College, North Carolina. She is the Director and Co-Founder of Critical Craft Forum, and from 2004-14, Wiggers served as Curator and then Director and Chief Curator, Museum of Contemporary Craft, Portland, OR. Wiggers contributes regularly to online and in-print journals and books. She serves on the Editorial Boards of Garland magazine and Norwegian Crafts. Recent curatorial projects include: Across the Table, Across the Land with Michael Strand for the National Council on Ceramic Education in the Arts; Everything Has Been Material for Scissors to Shape, a textile-focused exhibition at the Wing Luke Museum of Asian American Experience, Seattle; a forthcoming publication with Wiley Blackwell Publishers; and Gender + Adornment, an ongoing research project with Benjamin Lignel. Wiggers is the Center for Art Research's inaugural writer-in-residence for 2019-20.

Jordan Schnitzer Museum of Art (JSMA)

Peregrine Honig’s art, widely exhibited in the US, explores contemporary social dilemmas with whimsy wit. Honig will present her artistic practice as linking fairy tales and fantasy to controversial issues, as for example, class and gender struggles, child abuse, civil rights, and examine her perspectives with UO students in Professor of German, and Folklore and Public Culture Dorothee Ostmeier’s class on “Magic, Uncanny, Surrealistic and Cynical Tales”. Honig’s print portfolio, Father Gander (2005-06), in the JSMA’s collection, will be on view in the lecture hall.

Julia Haft-Candell: “Building a Visual Vocabulary”

“I work intuitively and analytically, building from a conceptual groundwork that questions language, semiotics, identity and gender. Drawing influence from Philip Guston, Audre Lorde, Louise Bourgeois and Eva Hesse, my work uses humor and sensibilities of the handmade to critique systems of power and absurdities of existence. My most recent body of work expanded from a 2017 printed zine titled Glossary of Terms and Symbols in which I created personal definitions for historically symbolic forms, such as infinity symbols, arches and knots. The new sculptures refer to symbols of intersection, such as hands interlocking, a foot stomping on mud or water slipping between fingers. They capture my reaction to current political situations, specifically feelings of frustration, struggle and a search for empathy. I consider the trajectory of my work to be one continuous body evoking movement and motion through universal symbols to address an overarching primordial narrative.” - Julia Haft-Candell, 2019

Julia Haft-Candell (b. 1982, Oakland, CA) received a BA from University of California, Davis before graduating from the MFA program at California State University, Long Beach in 2010. She spent a summer residency in 2016 at the Skowhegan School of Painting & Sculpture, Madison, ME, and has been awarded multiple grants from the Center for Cultural Innovation and most recently the California Community Foundation Fellowship in 2019. Haft-Candell has been included in numerous solo and group exhibitions nationally, and is represented by Parrasch Heijnen Gallery in Los Angeles.

February 20 6:00 p.m.–8:00 p.m.
Museum of Natural and Cultural History

In this farcical, intentionally inept PowerPoint presentation, Portland's premier drag clown Carla Rossi dons her persona as Professor Emeritus at the Institute of Metaphysical & Digestive Clown Research to offer findings on the art world, camp aesthetics, and (naturally) their correlation to ancient human sacrifice. You'll laugh along as Carla lampoons the sometimes disingenuous realm of art theory and inspires us to think about why we look at art and its subjects the way we do. The performance will be followed by a longer, sincere artist talk—with Anthony Hudson taking over from underneath the clown makeup—followed by Q&A and conversation with the audience, for a two-hour total engagement.

Cosponsored by the University of Oregon Office of the President, LGBT Education and Support Services, Department of Art, and Department of the History of Art and Architecture, with additional support from Carolee von Shillagh.  

Included with regular admission; free for MNCH members and UO ID card holders. Show your Oregon Trail or other EBT card for an admission discount.

Theo Triantafyllidis: “Escapism: The Boundaries of Virtual Space”

In this lecture, artist Theo Triantafyllidis will present recent work together with a sneak peek in current projects and behind the scenes material. The focus of the presentation will be on the use of the game engine as an artistic tool and the construction of alternative realities, performative systems and open narratives. 

Theo Triantafyllidis (b. 1988, Athens, GR) is an artist who builds virtual spaces and the interfaces for the human body to inhabit them. He creates expansive worlds and complex systems where the virtual and the physical merge in uncanny, absurd and poetic ways. These are often manifested as performances, virtual and augmented reality experiences, games and interactive installations. He uses awkward interactions and precarious physics, to invite the audience to embody, engage with and challenge these other realities. Through the lens of monster theory, he investigates themes of isolation, sexuality and violence in their visceral extremities. He offers computational humor and AI improvisation as a response to the tech industry’s agenda. He tries to give back to the online and gaming communities that he considers both the inspiration and context for his work by remaining an active participant and contributor. He holds an MFA from UCLA, Design Media Arts and a Diploma of Architecture from the National Technical University of Athens. He has shown work in museums, including the Hammer Museum in LA and NRW Forum in Dusseldorf, DE and various galleries such as Meredith Rosen Gallery, the Breeder, Sargent’s Daughters and Young Projects. He was part of Hyper Pavilion in the 2017 Venice Biennale and the 2018 Athens Biennale: ANTI-. Theo Triantafyllidis is based in Los Angeles.

White Stag Block

What is Information? (2020) will investigate conceptualizations and implementations of information via material, representational, and hybrid frames. The conference-experience will consider information and its transformational æffects—from documents to data; from facts and fictions to pattern recognition; from physical information to differential equations; and from volatility, uncertainty, and ambiguity to collective intelligence and wisdom. 

The tenth annual What is…? examines tapestries, temperaments, and topologies of information lenses and practices—including—social and technical, mathematical and semantic, physical and biological, economic and political, cultural and environmental information. Thus, information can be understood as physical, for instruction, and about epistemic systems. Next year’s gathering expands on What is Technology? (2019), which explored technology as tools, processes, and moral knowledge, as well as problem-solving and intelligent inquiry.

Plenary participants to be announced.

The Tenth Annual Undergraduate Research Symposium will be held on Thursday, May 21, 2020.

The University of Oregon defines undergraduate research broadly and includes students from all disciplines. Undergraduate students all over campus are engaged in original projects, mentored research, creative work, entrepreneurial presentations, consulting pitches, portfolios, and community-based projects. UO students have big questions and are working on finding and making answers.

Whether you are presenting, attending, mentoring, or supporting your peers, we look forward to seeing you at the symposium.

Last year over 75 majors, 21 minors, and eight colleges were represented by students from every undergraduate class in the Erb Memorial Union and Science Library Visualization Lab for a day of oral and poster presentations, performance art, Academic Residential Community presentations and quick chats telling the stories behind the data students are gathering and working with. This year will welcome new presenters and mentors for the biggest symposium yet.
