Haikus, Modernism and Stanton MacDonald-Wright

Exhibition

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.

The exhibition includes work from members of the Seattle Camera Club, FSA (Farm Security Administration), f/64 (a group of 20th-century photographers known for precise exposures and depiction of natural forms) and contemporary photography portfolios such as American Roads (printed in 1981), The Museum Project (printed in 2015), and DEMARCATION (printed in 2018).

44 Years Since the Termination of Executive Order 9066

Cultural/Diversity

This is a FREE speaker event open to the public wanting to learn more about American History about Exec Order 9066.

Returning to Utah State University we invite alumnus Yukio Shimomura to speak about his experience living through Executive Order 9066. The social injustice and inequality the Japanese people had to face during this time period. This event will make you think about similar events in our world and society.

With the intent to protect the U.S. from all espionage and sabotage from the Japanese, President Franklin D. Roosevelt issued Executive order 9066 on February 19, 1942.

Yukio Shimomura, born in San Francisco, California was in grade school when World War II started. His family and himself were incarcerated and interned to a camp in San Bruno, CA and later to the camp near Delta, Utah. Soon after they relocated to Ogden, UT where he graduated high school. Served in the U.S. Army, attended Weber State University and Utah State University where he earned a Bachelor Degree in Manufacturing Engineering.

Yukio will be share his experiences that happened to his family, before, during, and after the war in relevance to today's events.
