"It really just started with questions, like why so many funeral homes have the same kind of interior design," says Iowa City photographer Rachel Cox, whose exhibit Mors Scena is at the Des Moines Art Center (and digitally) through Jan. 3. "Why have they not really evolved that much, and where did this come from? Why did we get to this point where we needed this sort of theatrical staging for how we handle and process death?"

Cox is hosting a Virtual Gallery Talk on Sunday, Nov. 22.

11/11/2020

Many veterans have made a significant impact on the art world, from Sol LeWitt to Robert Rauschenberg. This #VeteransDay weโ€™re highlighting the work of another prominent veteran and artist with several works in the Art Center collections: Richard Diebenkorn, whose time in the United States Marine Corps greatly influenced his artistic development.

Diebenkorn entered the United States Marine Corps in 1943, where he served until 1945. While enlisted, Diebenkorn continued to expand his knowledge of European modernism while stationed at the Marine base in Quantico, Virginia. He took advantage of his location to visit art museums in Washington, DC, Philadelphia, and New York City. This allowed him to study the paintings of modern masters such as Henri Matisse and Pablo Picasso. Around this time, he had his first exposure to the new New York-based artists experimenting in Abstract Expressionism. Diebenkorn soon began his own experiments in abstract painting.

Diebenkornโ€™s ๐˜–๐˜ค๐˜ฆ๐˜ข๐˜ฏ ๐˜—๐˜ข๐˜ณ๐˜ฌ #70 is on view in the Meier Building. Inspired by Henri Matisseโ€™s use of large fields of color, this work is a response to the distinctive light quality and colorful architecture of Los Angeles. Diebenkornโ€™s painting style, with its visible brush strokes, drips, and layering of colors, is related to Abstract Expressionism.

Richard Diebenkorn, (American, 1922 - 1993)

After participating in funeral arrangements for family members, the artist became interested in the dรฉcor of funeral homes, and how the colors, lighting, and formal elements of these staged environments manifest within the grieving process. This experience resulted in her โ€œMors Scenaโ€ series, the focal point of ๐˜๐˜ฐ๐˜ธ๐˜ข ๐˜ˆ๐˜ณ๐˜ต๐˜ช๐˜ด๐˜ต๐˜ด 2020: ๐˜™๐˜ข๐˜ค๐˜ฉ๐˜ฆ๐˜ญ ๐˜Š๐˜ฐ๐˜น.

Rachel Cox lives and works in Iowa City as the Assistant Professor of Photography at the University of Iowa. This exhibition is curated by Laura Burkhalter, who says โ€œI reached out to Rachel about an exhibition about a year ago because I was so compelled by how intense her images were despite how minimal they are in what they show. Now, when so many families have lost loved ones due to COVID, the photographs are timelier than I could have ever anticipated.โ€

The Des Moines Art Center recognizes Indigenous Peopleโ€™s Day and acknowledges that the place on which we stand is the traditional and ancestral land of the Native Americans who preceded us, and we honor those who are still with us.

In recent months, The Art Center is proud to welcome two new art works into the collection by contemporary Indigenous artists, Frank Big Bearโ€™s collage ๐˜”๐˜ถ๐˜ญ๐˜ต๐˜ช๐˜ท๐˜ฆ๐˜ณ๐˜ด๐˜ฆ: ๐˜š๐˜ฑ๐˜ช๐˜ฏ ๐˜–๐˜ง๐˜ง ๐˜๐˜ (2013), and Wendy Red Starโ€™s set of photographs, ๐˜›๐˜ฉ๐˜ฆ ๐˜๐˜ฐ๐˜ถ๐˜ณ ๐˜š๐˜ฆ๐˜ข๐˜ด๐˜ฐ๐˜ฏ๐˜ด (2006).

Frank Big Bear (American/Anishinabe, born 1953) is a Minneapolis-based artist inspired by comic books, art history, and the place of Indigenous Americans in visual culture. His work is on view in the lower Meier gallery.

Wendy Red Star (Apsรกalooke/Crow, born 1981) lives and works in Portland, Oregon. Her work highlights the struggle of Indigenous people to be seen as contemporary members of society, and challenges stereotypical and racist images of Indigenous women. Her works will be on view in the lower Meier gallery in the coming days.

Thursday last week. Always a pleasurable visit which I look forward to when in the U.S.
For as long as I could remember, I have always appreciated art for all its forms. Due to it having multiple ways to express itself, I admire how there is no right or wrong way to utilize it. After I streamed โ€œQueen of Hearts: Audrey Flackโ€ on Film Festival Flix, I was able to appreciate this concept even more. This film is about a timeline of Flackโ€™s artistic career and how much art has impacted her life. Film Festival Flix has been the online streaming platform I have been using to stream informative and entertaining independent films online all without a hassle. Online streaming is only getting more popular from here on out, and I highly suggest looking into Film Festival Flix as your online streaming platform!
