The University of Oregon Art History Student Association (AHSA) is a student-run organization affiliated with the Department of the History of Art and Architecture, based in the new School of Design at Lawrence Hall. We facilitate educational and professional development opportunities for all those who make art or are interested in learning about the history of the visual arts and material objects, regardless of major field of study. Our primary goals are to provide exposure to all aspects and eras of art, open opportunities for dialogue, and create a diverse student community through academic and social gatherings. These will include professional development panels, providing students the ability to interact with a variety working professionals and assess future possibilities; a self-run symposium that allows interaction between undergraduates and graduates from across the country; and a tandem art exhibition showcasing the work of University of Oregon students. Throughout the year, we will seek to advocate for the discipline of Art History and student interests within the department throughout campus.

#5WomenArtists: During the month of March, the JSMA will be highlighting women artists in our collections. PARK So Eun is a Seoul-based contemporary Korean minhwa (folk) painter. She received her B.A. in Korean painting from Dankook University in Yongin in 1998 and her M.A. from Chung-Ang University in 2003 and has exhibited widely, winning various awards. Currently she teaches minhwa painting at the Seocho Cultural Foundation in Seoul. Her works are based on traditional art, but explore the relationship between reality and the unconscious.

#5WomenArtists Hung Liu was trained as a social realist and muralist in her native China, Liu blends artistic influences to explore culture, gender, identity, and memory.

In 2018, Liu was the focus of a one-woman exhibition at the National Museum of Women in the Arts in Washington D.C., titled “Hung Liu in Print.” As described by the NMWA: “To make her prints, [Liu] uses an array of printing and collage techniques, developing highly textured surfaces, veils of color, and screens of drip marks that transform the figures in each composition. Describing printmaking as ‘poetry,’ she emphasizes the spontaneity of the layering process, which allows each image to build organically with each successive layer.”

The Department of the History of Art and Architecture, in partnership with the Center for Asian and Pacific Studies, is pleased to present a four-day event on Traditional Japanese Noh Theatre to take place at UO and in Portland. Led by TAKEDA Tomoyuki, an active performer from one of the most prestigious schools of Noh, the Kanze School, this series of workshops is one of the most comprehensive introductions to Noh to take place in the United States. It is truly a rare opportunity to be immersed in the history, elegant dance and chanting, and breathtakingly beautiful costumes and masks of this 700-year old—but still very much thriving—performing tradition!

Here are the details of the two UO workshops:
Monday, October 1: Haseltine Lecture on Noh costume (sponsored by the Department of the History of Art and Architecture)

5-6:30 pm @ Redwood Auditorium, UO EMU
Presentation on Noh costumes, including history, materials, and design, culminating in a costuming demonstration (kitsuke).

Tuesday, October 2: Introduction to Noh with performance from Hanjo ("Lady Ban") and Sesshoh-seki ("The Death Stone")

5-7 pm @ Redwood Auditorium, UO EMU
Introduction to Noh history and performance, culminating in a performance of excerpts from the plays Lady Ban and Death Stone.
All workshops are free and open to the public.

This series of workshops is made possible through generous support from the following: Takashi Takeda Memorial Nohgaku Foundation; the Asian Studies Program; the Center for Asian and Pacific Studies; the College of Arts & Sciences; the Oregon Humanities Center's Endowment for Public Outreach in the Arts, Sciences, and Humanities; the Sally Claire Haseltine Endowed Fund in Art History; the Yoko McClain Fund at the University of Oregon; a Mini Grant for Japanese Arts & Culture from the Los Angeles Office of the Japan Foundation; and the Portland Art Museum.

Don't miss it!

This is the last week for our "In a Different Light" exhibit featuring infrared photography from five Willamette Valley photographers - Paul Barden, Rich Bergeman, Philip Coleman, Jack Larson, and Sandi O’Brien.

The Gallery is open Monday through Friday, 10am to 5:30pm.

Infrared photography captures the world in a way that is not visible to the naked eye. Although the wavelengths of infrared light are above the range that can be registered by the human eye, these wavelengths can be recorded with special black-and-white films or with converted digital imaging sensors. Plants, people, and animals reflect more infrared light than inorganic materials like water, rocks, and sky.

As Rich Bergeman explains: “Infrared photography reflects a world quite different from what we’re used to seeing – at times creating surreal, dream-like images, and in other cases injecting a more subtle shift in tonalities.”

Part of the Discourse, Barbara Kruger — Art21

Art21 is celebrating their 21st anniversary with a debut film: an exclusive interview with Barbara Kruger as she reflects on her beginnings and discusses recent projects: a site-specific installation in a New York City skatepark commissioned by Performa, and an immersive room-wrap at Sprüth Magers gallery in Berlin.

While sharing her earliest influences and what led her to become an artist, Barbara Kruger explains the origins of her 2017 Performa commission, "Untitled (Skate)," a site-specific installation at Coleman Skatepark in New York City’s Lower East Side.
