Women, Surrealism, and Abstraction

Exhibition

During the 20th century, art made by women was often overlooked or dismissed by museums, collectors, and art historians. Featuring work by 46 artists, "Women, Surrealism, and Abstraction" attempts to present a more holistic and complex view of art history—one that highlights artwork by women pushing beyond societal expectations and creative limitations through Surrealism and abstraction. Also featured alongside the art are 16 poems written by women in the Cache Valley literary community.

Decisions Downstream

Exhibition

All of us—people, fish, and many other creatures—depend on the water in Utah’s rivers. The choices we make about how to develop water resources have big impacts on river habitats. In Decisions Downstream, watershed scientist Dr. Sarah Null teams up with artists Carsten Meier and Chris Peterson to explore new ways of seeing river habitats. Come immerse yourself in beautiful large-scale images created from layers of scientific data, original paintings that capture the transcendent experience of encountering wild fish, and projections onto 3D maps that tell stories of our past water development choices and those we face in the future. Then discover how new water management models can help us preserve river habitats and supply water for people. Critical water decisions are being made in Utah. Decisions Downstream highlights the water development tools, tradeoffs, and alternatives that can guide our choices.

The Geometry and Physics of Hitchin Systems

Conference/Seminar

Steven Rayan Associate Professor, Department of Mathematics & Statistics at the University of Saskatchewan
Director, Centre for Quantum Topology and Its Applications

Abstract: The moduli space of stable Higgs bundles on a Riemann surface, known as the Hitchin system, arises as a space of gauge-equivalent, dimensionally-reduced solutions to the self-dual Yang-Mills equations. This moduli space turns out to be a completely integrable Hamiltonian system; a noncompact Calabi-Yau manifold; and the natural setting for a mirror symmetry that is intertwined with Langlands duality. In this talk, I will introduce the Hitchin system from multiple points of view and sketch the interesting algebraic and geometric features that have been discovered over the past 30 years. I will conclude by speculating on connections between Higgs bundles and condensed-matter physics.

The Oasis This Time: Book talk and discussion with author Rebecca Lawton

Lecture/Readings | Agriculture and Natural Resources

Water, the most critical fluid on the planet, is seen as savior, benefactor, and Holy Grail in many arid North American communities. Fluvial geologist and former Colorado River guide Rebecca Lawton will explore this topic when she joins us for a reading and conversation about her latest book of essays The Oasis This Time: Living and Dying with Water in the West.

This event is presented in conjunction with the Smithsonian Water|Ways exhibition on display at the Swaner EcoCenter now until March 27, 2021.
