Material Explorations,
a few memos on planned obsolescence.

 

8.5 x 11 Boise paper, HP inkjet ink, double-sided tape

 

As objects and material enter my life and space, I am forced to deal with their presence and accumulation. Much of what arrives is destined for trash, secondary to what I’m really after. Forcing myself to observe the detritus of contemporary family life afforded small moments of care, inspiration, and even whimsy. Collectively, these materials and objects denote our shared industrial and consumerist histories. With individual care, however, these objects of planned obsolescence gather, hold, and project individual meaning.

The University Career Center's practice interview program is a safe place to practice interview skills, gain confidence and receive interview feedback from an experienced hiring professional. Guest employers volunteer their time to interview students and provide them with immediate feedback on their interviewing skills. Interviews are 30 minutes in length: 20 minutes for the interview and 10 minutes for immediate feedback from the interviewer. Students will not be interviewing for a specific position but should be prepared to respond to general behavior interview questions. You DO NOT have to have specific interest in the organization in order to participate--the goal is to get practice interviewing.

 

Why Sign-up for a Practice Interview?


Knowing what to expect and how to prepare will lead to successful future interviews. Success begins with preparation.
You will receive immediate interview feedback from our guest employer and professional hiring manager.
Practice makes better! Get a jump start on your job search, boost your interview skills and increase your chances for a successful interview the next time you're in front of an employer.

February 4 4:00 p.m.

Visiting Artist Lecture Series presented by the Department of Art and Center for Art Research 

Lectures are live on Zoom with registration and will also livestream on the Department of Art Facebook.

Jillian Mayer shares her works and ideas that speak to the fluid nature of her process as an artist. Identity formation, experience, digital vs analog environments, value, legacy, and dependency are just some of the themes that will likely be discussed. Mayer hopes this will be somewhat entertaining. 

Jillian Mayer’s practice—spanning videos, sculptures, painting, photography, performances, and interactive installations—reflects upon how new technologies affect our sociality, bodies, identities, and conceptions of self. Throughout her work, Mayer models how to subvert capital-driven modes of technological innovation. By investigating the points of tension between our physical and virtual worlds, Mayer makes work that seeks to inhabit the increasingly porous boundary between the two.

Mayer has exhibited internationally at venues including MoMA and the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum. Her work has been featured in Artforum, Art in America, and The New York Times. She is an alum of the Sundance Institute's New Frontiers Lab and a recipient of the Creative Capital Fellowship.

February 10 noon

Presenting a part of her master's thesis, Zoey Kambour visually explores the unique illumination style found in the Osma Beatus and asks if the creation of this style is a result of the socio-political events in the Northern Iberian Peninsula in the late eleventh century. Through visual analysis of the individual stylistic elements in the manuscript, she demonstrates that this retention of the native style woven into Roman illumination style reflects the response the Leonese Christian community had to the forced move from the Visigothic to Roman rite.

Lectures are live on Zoom with registration and will also livestream on the Department of Art Facebook.

My installations meticulously cultivate the mechanisms and peculiarities of human cognition in response to uncertainty. They trigger embedded root sociological, anthropological, architectural and scientific cues through furniture, ergonomics, space, light and haunting animal activity. This stagecraft of untethering is designed to produce an expansive sense of empathy and investigation. Questions frame reality. What are the borders between science, nature and superstition? Is an object the cure or the disease? How do social protocols for the domestic, sacred or scientific intersect? Through these encounters with the unknown, viewers construct their understanding, a process psychologists call apophenia. – Laura Fritz, 2020

Laura Fritz is a Portland-based artist who works with a range of media, including, sculpture, video, and light. Her immersive installations explore the cognition of uncertainty. Her work Alvarium 2, currently on display in Laura Fritz/Rick Silva: Encounters at the Jordan Schnitzer Museum of Art (Eugene) presents a mysterious structure inhabited by a spectral swarm of bees.  Recently, her Apex Series solo show at the Portland Art Museum explored surreal architecture, swarms, and the psychology of cognition. She has also exhibited at the Des Moines Art Center, Reed College, Portland; Soil, Seattle; Aljira Center for Contemporary Art, Newark, New Jersey; University of Oregon, Portland; and the Couture Stipend Series at the New American Art Union in Portland. Fritz received an Oregon Arts Commission Individual Artist Fellowship in the Visual Arts (2014). She holds a BFA from Drake University, and also attended the Pacific Northwest College of Art (CE program), Portland.

Co-sponsored by the Jordan Schnitzer Museum of Art and the Department of Art.

Mario will discuss some of his past projects and discuss the important role of the individual and collaborative artist in relationship to creating and in finding ways to tell one's family's stories and other marginalized narratives that have guided his artistic practice. He will engage audiences in creative strategies/tools for thinking and making Art.

Mario Ybarra Jr., is a visual and performance artist, educator, and activist who combines street culture with fine art in order to produce what he calls “contemporary art that is filtered through a Mexican-American experience in Los Angeles.”  His work has been included in many group exhibitions, including Installations Inside/Out: Armory 20th Anniversary Exhibition, Armory Center for the Arts, Pasadena, California; San Juan Poly/Graphic Triennial of the Instituto de Cultura Puertorriqueña, San Juan, Puerto Rico; Phantom Sightings: Art After the Chicano Movement, Los Angeles County Museum of Art, Los Angeles, California; and Whitney Biennial, Whitney Museum of American Art, New York, New York (2008). He is co-founder of an artist run organization located in the Harbor area of Los Angeles, called Slanguage Studio (2002-present). 

This lecture is made possible by the George and Matilda Fowler Endowment Fund.
