Guggenheim Gallery at Chapman University

Guggenheim Gallery at Chapman University Contemporary Art Gallery The Guggenheim Gallery is housed in Moulton Center, near Waltmar Theatre, at the corner of Palm and Center, and was built in 1975 with a gift from Robert and Shirley Guggenheim.
(2)

It sponsors an annual schedule of exhibitions by professional artists, students and community arts organizations. As part of the regular programming, the Guggenheim Gallery is proud to host a variety of collaborations with area institutions including: Confronting Nature: Silenced Voices with Cal State Fullerton, Art and Architecture with ten Southern California museums and galleries, and the 1994 Orange County Olympic Arts Festival. Solo exhibitions by internationally known California artists such as Manuel Ocampo and Tim Hawkinson alternate with group exhibitions organized around themes which have included death and dying, sex and humor, the Vietnam war, public art, and religion. Chapman students mount group exhibitions each semester and are required to show their work individually as juniors and seniors. When classes are not in session, the gallery also hosts community arts organizations such as So. Cal. Artists, the Orange Unified School District, the Orange Art Association, and the Orange PTA sponsor exhibitions. University organizations also hold receptions in the gallery. Guggenheim Gallery Mission Statement The department of art will provide provocative exhibitions and educational programming that provide a local connection to the national and international dialogue about contemporary art and provide a framework for an interchange between artists, scholars, students and the community at large. While the exhibitions feature contemporary art, they often address other disciplines and societal issues in general. Integrated into the curriculum, these programs contribute significantly to the Chapman education.

Christine is represented by Night Gallery in Los Angeles and Galerie Nagel Draxler in Cologne and Berlin. Working mainly with paint, mixed media, and sculpture, Christine explores the notion of identity in regards to race, gender, and one’s actions in modern day society. Through using pop-culture based templates, Christine comments on the state of society politically, socially, and economically. She has been an artist-in-residence at Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture, The Jamaica Center for Arts and Learning, and Chashama North. In 2017, she was nominated for the Paulo Cunha e Silva Art Prize. Christine is currently Assistant Professor of Painting and Drawing at California College of Art and lives and works in San Francisco.

Politically Private - Laub

Laub (b. 1986, Waynesboro, VA) is an interdisciplinary artist who works across glass, ceramics, wood, textiles, sound, and drawing. His practice often considers his personal life, making objects, sensations, and worlds that speak to the difficulties and merits of human connection, self-care, and learning. By approaching tangible materials in creative ways, he materializes the fleeting and transitional nature of emotion and being, and makes visible the human necessity to process, connect, and care for one another. Laub's work has recently been exhibited at Los Angeles Contemporary Exhibitions, Armory Center for the Arts, and Commonwealth and Council, and has been featured in Artforum, Los Angeles Times, and Contemporary Art Review Los Angeles. He holds an MFA in Glass from Rhode Island School of Design and a BFA in Craft Material Studies from Virginia Commonwealth University.

For more information on Laub's work featured at the Visitor Welcome Center, check out this article from the LA Times: https://www.latimes.com/entertainment/arts/museums/la-et-cm-laub-visitor-welcome-center-20181015-htmlstory.html

Politically Private - Iris Yirei Hu

iris yirei hu (b. 1991, Los Angeles, CA) received her BA from UCLA School of the Arts and Architecture and her MFA from Columbia University School of the Arts. Hu is an intergenerational storyteller and image maker. She uses painting, sound, poetry, and installation to rearrange habits of sharing time and making life. Her art, pedagogical, and curatorial projects explore the shifting possibilities of love in relation to systemic and institutional power. Some of her recent exhibitions include John Michael Kohler Arts Center, Wisconsin (2019); Women's Center for Creative Work, Los Angeles (2018) and Los Angeles Municipal Art Gallery, Los Angeles (2018).

Politically Private - Genevieve Gaignard

Genevieve Gaignard (b. 1981, Orange, MA) received her BFA in Photography at Massachusetts College of Art and her MFA in Photography at Yale University. Based Los Angeles, Genevieve’s work focuses on photographic self-portraiture, sculpture, and installation to explore race, femininity, class, and how those three topics can be intertwined. Being the daughter of a black father and white mother, Genevieve’s childhood was filled with confusion of identity. Was her family white enough to be white? Black enough to be black? Genevieve addresses these questions through her artwork. She often uses herself as the subject of her artwork in order to explore the idea of intersectional identity, and challenges others idea of it.

Politically Private - Derek Fordjour

Derek Fordjour (b. 1974, Memphis, Tennessee) is a graduate of Morehouse College, and earned a Ed.M. from Harvard University, and an MFA in Painting at Hunter College. Fordjour works primarily in the realm of portrait painting to create vibrant scenes that subtly address subjects of systemic inequality, race, and aspiration, particularly in the context of American identity. He has exhibited in numerous venues including the Brooklyn Academy of Music, the Sugarhill Children’s Museum, and the Taubman Museum and currently serves as a Core Critic at the Yale University School of Art. Fordjour was awarded the 2018 Deutsche Bank NYFA Fellowship Award.

Politically Private - Nica Aquino

Nica Aquino (b. 1990, Los Angeles, CA) received her BFA in Photography from the Pacific Northwest College of Art in Portland, Oregon and a MA in Visual Culture from the School of Art at Manchester Metropolitan University in the UK. Her work explores the idea of place, identity, diaspora and the cross-cultural experience largely through a photographic lens. Through photography, viewers see through her eyes as a first generation Ilocana-American trying to navigate cultural divides and drawing inspiration from the people and places around her, exploring diverse immigrant communities in the US and beyond. Most recently, Nica has began to experiment with textiles, installation, video and sound in order to examine the themes of memory and loss. Nica is currently based & working in the Northeast Los Angeles community, where she is a teaching artist, independent curator & arts administrator.

Featured in the Guggenheim Gallery at Chapman University, part of Nica's installation piece, "‘Memory Room’, provided a meditative atmosphere for visitors to reflect & pray, as they contributed personal items &/or letters & notes written on paper boats, that were attached to a river-like handmade textile based altar. I am of Ilokano descent; Ilokano means ‘people from the coastal or riverine lowlands.’ Creating a body of water is significant in representing my origins as an Ilocana & the large bodies of water Ilocanos are known for residing by. As the boats flowed down the river, visitors' messages descended into the spirit world, reaching passed loved ones & honoring the memories of our ancestors."

The artists in EX LIBRIS- Approaches to a Research Based Practice present their findings in a variety of media, employing video, photography, collage, sculpture and painting. Grids and lists are still in the mix, but they are part of an undogmatic choreography of styles that embraces a multiplicity of historic influences and their (re-) discovery. Artists featured include: Katy Herzog with Andrew Choate, Gala Porras-Kim, Candice Lin, Mona Varichon, and Jenny Yurshansky.

A painting is an object that is like you and me part of our world. Yet, art historically speaking until recently, we did not primarily perceive it as a thing, because painting’s intrinsic quality, the disruption and displacement of the spatial continuity of the world lies precisely in the fact that real space plays a subsidiary role. It is thought to refer to a world beyond our own. The countless comparisons of painting to the window, the portal and the many paintings that literally show windows and frames seemingly corroborate the view that painting reports an objectivized exterior to the interior of our minds.

Artists Include: Josh Atlas, Nicole Van Beek, Richard Bott, Michael Kennedy Costa, Chet Glaze, Daniel Mendel-Black, Florian Morlat, and Nora Shields. Curated by Marcus Herse

This exhibition brings together work from Chapman University’s Escalette Permanent Collection of Art with recent selections from Los Angeles. It takes the artist focus and time to manipulate his materials, be it on the picture plane or in space, and in some way this has to be mirrored by the onlooker, to unravel the information the artwork contains. It is the opposite of the quick, scanning glance sliding around the smartphone’s display, Netflix’s homepage, or your Instagram feed. The works in the exhibition engage in the idea of emblematic concentration and abbreviated depiction, but at a pace that invites contemplation. So, let’s take it slow this summer, like we used to, and catch our breaths at the Guggenheim Gallery. Arists featured include: Hilary Baker, Nate Fors, Keith Haring, David Kiddie, Elizabeth Murray, R.T. Pece, Antonio Puleo, Ken Price, Anna Sew Hoy, and William T. Whiley

Aside from its meaning as a state of psychological well being, the word ‘high’ implies value and authority. High school, high art, and high culture are respectively the best versions, and prepending ‘high’ to these nouns attests to the quality of their objects. The German term “Hochdeutsch” (High-German) suggests that the most accent-free type of speech is superior to all other dialects, and that there is a right and a wrong way of speaking the language even though grammatically there is no difference. High can also imply unobtainability, a desired result may be out of reach, and of course we must ask– high in relation to what? Naturally, to its counterpart, ‘low’ – Go figure. Deepening this thought, however, we see that when speaking about high versus low culture we ultimately speak about the Judeo-Christian concepts of good and evil, Heaven and Hell, and all their implied value judgments. Through this language we inform our politics, ethics and philosophy and not, at last, our aesthetic decisions. Artists featured include: Dewey Ambrosino, Kristi Lippire, Renée Petropoulos, Margo Victor, and Jennifer West. Organized by Marcus Herse.
