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.

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).

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:
Monday: closed
Tuesday: 10am-5pm
Wednesday: 10am-5pm
Thursday: 10am-7pm
Friday: 10am-5pm
Saturday: 9am-2pm

Thomas Campbell: Lint Basket Supremeo and Unii Ciøn Yyikæ

Exhibition

Thomas Campbell is an interdisciplinary media maestro who creates eloquent and romantic narratives about the fringes of contemporary American culture in a variety of formats, including sculpture, ceramics, music, printmaking, painting, photography, drawing, and film.

A two-part, two-gallery sequence, "Lint Basket Supremeo" (a multi-medium survey) and "Unii Ciøn Yyikæ" (new works) give a sense of Campbell’s creative output over the last ten years leading up to today, including new works created during an artist residency at Utah State University’s Department of Art & Design last fall.

CAAS Dean's Spring Speaker

Conference/Seminar

As part of the Aviation Program’s contribution to USU’s Year of the Woman, we are hosting Wally Funk on March 19th as the CAAS Dean’s Spring Seminar.

In 1961, Wally Funk was among the Mercury 13, the first group of American pilots to pass the Woman in Space program. Wally sailed through a series of rigorous physical and mental tests, with one of her scores beating all the male Mercury 7 astronauts', including John Glenn's, the first American in orbit. But just one week before the final phase of training, the program was abruptly cancelled. A combination of politics and prejudice meant that none of the women ever flew into space. Undeterred, Wally went on to become America's first female aviation safety inspector, though her dream of being an astronaut never dimmed. She still flies as an instructor pilot in Texas.

Don't let her snow white hair fool you. She is energetic, passionate about aviation, space and the future of women in aviation.

Wally is living history.
