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.

Applied Math Seminar

Conference/Seminar

We are honored to have Prof. James Powell to kick off the seminar series for fall 2019.
Title: One spot, two spot, red spot grew spots: How differential dispersal, phenology, and the Allee effect predict pattern formation in mountain pine beetle impact.
Abstract: The mountain pine beetle (MPB), is an aggressive insect which attacks pine trees. Pines have significant physical/chemical defenses, requiring the beetles to attack en masse to successfully colonize. Beetle larvae consume the phloem, killing the host and requiring dispersal to find new hosts. Temperatures nonlinearly control development and emergence, creating a thermal niche depending on synchronized timing and dispersal. Warming has broadened this niche across western North America, causing recent tree mortality over 60 million hectares. Observed patterns run the gamut from apparently random, persistent spots to aggregating spots and growing patches to complete mortality in susceptible age classes. A mechanistic model based on differential beetle motility between forested and unforested habitats (ecological diffusion), temperature control of MPB and the Allee effect recovers most variability at landscape scales but misses spots appearing at low emergence levels.

Sky Above, Earth Below: A History of Western Landscape Photography

Exhibition

“Sky Above, Earth Below” traces the development of western landscape photography from
the late 19th century to the 21st century, starting with early American photographers like Myra Albert
Wiggins, Edward Curtis, and Karl Struss and concluding with contemporary photographers like Barry
Andersen, Kimberly Anderson, Karalee Kuchar, and Charlotte Trolinger. 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). The exhibition will be open to the public from September 14, 2019 to June 30, 2020.

David Maisel: Proving Ground

Exhibition

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.

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

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.
