Erlin Geffrard LectureErlin Geffrard LectureKirkbride 100Erlin Geffrard constructs organic approach to the tradition of painting to explore ideas about intergenerational, spiritual and cultural mutations. The multitude of mark making techniques that are applied reflect ritual and cultural traditions that are channelled (consciously and unconsciously) in the process of depicting people and their landscapes. Using a melange of digital and analog modalities the artist makes use of materials ranging from needle and thread; paper and pencil; arduionos and LED lights; paint and glitter, to bridge craft and ceremonial tradition. Upon first glance the thick layers of contrasting textures of glossy and crisp paint do not give way to the encrypted issues of race, gender, and religion. These conflicts are revealed via popup cut outs in the canvas and imagery which subverts the vibrant nature of the paintings. The warped and mutated physical characteristics of the figures recall personal and familial experiences of cultural demonization.The attitudes surrounding Haitan Voodon culture are neither rejected nor accepted within his process."11/5/2019 10:30:00 PM11/5/2019 11:30:00 PMFalse<img alt="" src="/Images%20Events/IMG_9273%20-%20Aaron%20Terry%20-%20ajpEdit.jpg" style="BORDER:0px solid;" />
Allan deSouza LectureAllan deSouza LectureKirkbride 100The Paul R. Jones Annual Lecture will be held on Tuesday, September 24, 2019, featuring transmedia artist and author Allan deSouza. Based in California, his works restage colonial-era material legacies through counter-strategies of humor, fabulation, and (mis)translation. deSouza’s work has been shown extensively in the US and internationally, including at the Krannert Museum, IL; the Phillips Collection, Washington, DC; and the Pompidou Centre, Paris. deSouza’s book, How Art Can Be Thought (Duke, 2018), examines art pedagogy, and proposes decolonizing artistic, viewing, and pedagogical practices that can form new attachments within the contemporary world. The book provides an extensive analytical glossary of some of the most common terms used to discuss art, while considering how those terms may be adapted to new artistic and social challenges. deSouza is represented by Talwar Gallery, NY and New Delhi, and is Chair of the Department of Art Practice at University of California, Berkeley. The Lecture will be in Room 100 of Kirkbride Hall. A reception for deSouza will be held immediately following in the Recitation Hall Gallery. His works will be on exhibit in the Recitation Hall Gallery from 09.17.2019 through 11.01.2019. 9/24/2019 9:30:00 PM9/24/2019 10:30:00 PMFalse<img alt="" src="/Images%20Events/deSouza_1_Title.jpg" style="BORDER:0px solid;" />
