David Maisel: Proving Ground


In a remote region of Utah’s Great Salt Lake Desert, a classified military site called Dugway Proving Ground remains largely hidden from public view, closed to civilians and rarely seen in the media. Since its founding during World War II, Dugway Proving Ground has been a test site for chemical and biological weapons.

In 2014, after a decade of inquiry to the Pentagon, artist David Maisel was granted access to Dugway Proving Ground. Through large-scaled photographs and video projection, Proving Ground immerses the viewer in this surreal and alien realm – in Maisel’s words, a “hidden, walled-off, and secret site that offers the opportunity to reflect on who and what we are collectively, as a society.”

The Nora Eccles Harrison Museum of Art is pleased to present this new body of work by Maisel, who was awarded a prestigious 2018 Guggenheim Fellowship in the Arts for the Proving Ground project.

Mondays: closed
Tuesdays: 10am-5pm
Wednesdays: 10am-5pm
Thursdays: 10am-7pm
Fridays: 10am-5pm
Saturdays: 9am-2pm
Sundays: closed

Haikus, Modernism and Stanton MacDonald-Wright


Stanton MacDonald-Wright’s “Haiga Portfolio” (1965-1966) blends Eastern and Western influences, pairing vibrant modernist paintings with haikus written by some of Japan’s most influential poets.
The term “haiga” refers to a style of Japanese painting by haiku poets, whose poems are known for their brevity and simplicity. Each of the ten prints that compose the “Haiga Portfolio” have a corresponding haiku.
The “Haiga Portfolio” exemplifies the 20th century modernist movement Synchromism, cofounded in 1913 by MacDonald-Wright and Morgan Russell. The movement sought to arrange color in the same way that sound is composed in music and is considered the first American avant-guard movement to be accepted internationally. Seventy-five years old at the time of the portfolio’s creation, MacDonald-Wright employed the use of energetic, swirling shapes coupled with dense, vivid colors orchestrated in the modernist style and the rhythm of Synchromism.

Applied Mathematics Seminar: Some Topics in Optimal Control


Abstract: This talk will introduce the subject of optimal control (where optimization and control meet). We’ll discuss several applications, current research problems, and some of Matt’s recent contributions to the field.

Short Bio: Matt is from Texas. He completed his Bachelor’s in Mechanical Engineering from Texas A&M, his Master’s in Aerospace Engineering from Texas A&M, and his PhD in Aerospace Engineering from UT Austin. Along the way, he took a discrete math class where he fell in love with the joy of writing a proof. The mathematical journey culminated with an advanced course in Functional Analysis, in which he struggled immensely, but was amazed by the beauty. After working for a private research company for 5 years, Matt is now as Assistant Professor in Mechanical & Aerospace Engineering working in the areas of optimization and control.
