Exhibition Eye Eye Nose Mouth: Art, Disability, and Mental Illness in Nanjing, China and Shiga-ken, Japan.

The exhibition at the Harvard University Asia Center explores the intersection of art, disability, and mental health by displaying original works on paper and sculptures created by ten groundbreaking, self-taught artists from China and Japan. Their compelling, formally innovative artworks come in a wide range of styles and media, from gestural abstractions and proliferating figurations, to meticulous clay obelisks and eye-popping wall paintings. The first exhibition of works produced in art workshops for people with disabilities ever to take place at Harvard (and only the second devoted to self-taught artists since the Harvard Society for Contemporary Art’s Exhibition of American Folk Paintings in 1930), “Eye Eye Nose Mouth” offers an original contribution to an ongoing conversation about mental health and the acceptance of mental disability and mental illness in both local and international contexts.

Kalahari Perspectives: Anthropology, Photography, and the Marshall Family

Exhibitions-Current The new exhibition will explore the photographic representation of Kalahari people known as the Ju/’hoansi and /Gwi of Namibia. Once pejoratively called Bushmen, they have been — throughout history — photographed and otherwise imaged in an effort to exploit and colonize them. In the 1950s, the Marshall family, based in Cambridge, Massachusetts, launched an effort to document the lives of these people before they were forever transformed. Culled from over 45,000 images, Kalahari Perspectives presents a select subset of the Marshalls’ photography and guides visitors through a process of actively “reading” the images to better understand their potential to transform perception.

Simonson’s work is inspired by explorations of deep-ocean life made in collaboration with Harvard University professor Peter Girguis. Simonson’s art reflects a passion for the process of science, deep affection for the natural world, and dedication to seeking out and “bringing to light,” the beauty and mystery of places and life for… Gazette Classification: Art/Design.

Displaying Latin America

The Americas were a vital stage of transatlantic encounters in modern architecture. Mobility of ideas, peoples, and works established intellectual and material networks that constructed modern architecture as an international event.

Hans Arp’s Constellations II

This exhibition presents the room-sized wall relief Constellations II by Alsatian artist and poet Hans Arp (1886–1966); it is the work’s first public viewing in 15 years. Commissioned for the Harvard Graduate Center by Harvard architecture professor and Bauhaus founding director Walter Gropius, the relief’s 13 panels were first installed in 1950 on facing walls of a popular dining room in Harkness Commons (now the Caspersen Center). Arp described its biomorphic shapes as primal forms inspired by nature, a connection made clear in the title of the work, which evokes a grouping of stars in the night sky. Constellations II inaugurated a new chapter in Arp’s postwar practice. It was his first large-scale, site-specific artwork and led to others, including a metal relief for the UNESCO headquarters in Paris. The Harvard Art Museums are closed on major holidays. Gazette Classification: Art/Design. Exhibitions. Organization/Sponsor: Support for this exhibition was provided by the Daimler Curatorship of the Busch-Reisinger Museum Fund, the Charles L. Kuhn Endowment Fund, and the Care of the Busch-Reisinger Museum Collection Endowment. Modern and contemporary art programs at the Harvard Art Museums are made possible in part by generous support from the Emily Rauh Pulitzer and Joseph Pulitzer, Jr. Fund for Modern and Contemporary Art.

The Bauhaus and Harvard

"The Bauhaus and Harvard" — mounted in conjunction with the 100th anniversary of the founding of the Bauhaus in Weimar, Germany — presents nearly 200 works by 74 artists, drawn almost entirely from the Busch-Reisinger Museum’s extensive Bauhaus collection. Founded in 1919 and closed just 14 years later, the Bauhaus was the 20th century’s most influential school of art, architecture, and design. Harvard University played host to the first Bauhaus exhibition in the United States in 1930, and went on to become an unofficial center for the Bauhaus in America when founding director Walter Gropius joined Harvard’s department of architecture in 1937. Today the Busch-Reisinger Museum houses the largest Bauhaus collection outside Germany, initiated and assembled through the efforts of Gropius and many former teachers and students who emigrated from Nazi Germany, including Anni and Josef Albers, Herbert Bayer, Lyonel Feininger, and László Moholy-Nagy. The Harvard Art Museums are closed on major holidays. Gazette Classification: Art/Design. Exhibitions. Organization/Sponsor: Organized by the Harvard Art Museums.

Transitions: Winter Into Spring Photographs of the Arnold Arboretum by Chris Morgan

Chris Morgan's goal as a photographer is to evoke the emotions he feels when he views patterns and textures in nature, in the shapes of trees, and in the movements of birds. He brings details to life. The Arboretum, with its rich collections of flora and fauna, has been a major interest of his for over 15 years, especially during blizzards, when dramatic photo opportunities appear. Digital photography, which offers a happy marriage of the arts and the sciences, lets him explore larger-format photography in creative ways through digital panorama techniques.

Pairing Mindful Meditation with a Scholar’s Rock

Join Caitlin Casey, a student in the arts in education program at Harvard’s Graduate School of Education (HGSE), for a special mindfulness meditation session. Inspired by Christophe Andre’s book "Looking at Mindfulness: Twenty-Five Paintings to Change the Way You Live" and HGSE’s Project Zero, which offers thinking routines like See-Wonder-Connect, this meditative experience will allow visitors to engage deeply with an 18th-century Chinese scholar’s rock from the Qing dynasty. The black limestone sculpture was historically viewed as a status symbol and object of meditative contemplation. The session will explore how practicing mindfulness in the galleries can heighten appreciation of art and help visitors gain valuable insights about their thoughts and feelings through prolonged visual observation. Free with museums admission. This tour is limited to 10 people and tickets are required. Ten minutes before the tour, tickets will become available at the admissions desk.

Future Fossil Art Exhibition

Visual artist Clarissa Tossin, a Radcliffe fellow in 2017–2018, expands upon her fellowship project with a newly commissioned exhibition that considers the ecology of an uncertain future. Inspired by Octavia E. Butler’s science fiction trilogy “Xenogenesis” (1989), in which the Amazon becomes the site for a new civilization of alien-human hybrids, Tossin speculates upon a postapocalyptic world following ecological collapse. Pairing DIY plastic recycling techniques with the materials and practices of Amazonian aesthetic traditions, Tossin highlights the contemporary footprint left in the geological sedimentation of the earth. These new works consider indigenous knowledge in relationship to the environment, while they also resemble ruins of a world yet to come. Gazette Classification: Art/Design. Exhibitions.

La Flor (The Flower) PART TWO

PART TWO: "The aim of the project titled The Flower is similar to that of Stromboli, but with an added ingredient. The film does not set out to use an actress’ prior work to bring a particular emotion to a series of images. Instead, The Flower aspires to construct, to constitute this experience. The experience is the very film itself. Viewers see various actresses’ careers unfolding before their eyes, as part of the same film. The idea is that one film should be a series of films, an era in the life of four people, and that cinema should be able to show this passing of time, this learning, this process. That from the different inventions and fantasies that the avatars of the project gradually contribute, one can see eventually the true face of the four women, shining brightly through the fog of fiction." – Mariano Llinás.

Hans Arp’s Constellations II

This exhibition presents the room-sized wall relief Constellations II by Alsatian artist and poet Hans Arp (1886–1966); it is the work’s first public viewing in 15 years. Commissioned for the Harvard Graduate Center by Harvard architecture professor and Bauhaus founding director Walter Gropius, the relief’s 13 panels were first installed in 1950 on facing walls of a popular dining room in Harkness Commons (now the Caspersen Center). Arp described its biomorphic shapes as primal forms inspired by nature, a connection made clear in the title of the work, which evokes a grouping of stars in the night sky. Constellations II inaugurated a new chapter in Arp’s postwar practice. It was his first large-scale, site-specific artwork and led to others, including a metal relief for the UNESCO headquarters in Paris. The Harvard Art Museums are closed on major holidays. Gazette Classification: Art/Design. Exhibitions. Organization/Sponsor: Support for this exhibition was provided by the Daimler Curatorship of the Busch-Reisinger Museum Fund, the Charles L.

The Bauhaus and Harvard

"The Bauhaus and Harvard" — mounted in conjunction with the 100th anniversary of the founding of the Bauhaus in Weimar, Germany — presents nearly 200 works by 74 artists, drawn almost entirely from the Busch-Reisinger Museum’s extensive Bauhaus collection. Founded in 1919 and closed just 14 years later, the Bauhaus was the 20th century’s most influential school of art, architecture, and design. Harvard University played host to the first Bauhaus exhibition in the United States in 1930, and went on to become an unofficial center for the Bauhaus in America when founding director Walter Gropius joined Harvard’s department of architecture in 1937. Today the Busch-Reisinger Museum houses the largest Bauhaus collection outside Germany, initiated and assembled through the efforts of Gropius and many former teachers and students who emigrated from Nazi Germany, including Anni and Josef Albers, Herbert Bayer, Lyonel Feininger, and László Moholy-Nagy. The Harvard Art Museums are closed on major holidays. Gazette Classification: Art/Design. Exhibitions. Organization/Sponsor: Organized by the Harvard Art Museums.

Transitions: Winter Into Spring Photographs of the Arnold Arboretum by Chris Morgan

Chris Morgan's goal as a photographer is to evoke the emotions he feels when he views patterns and textures in nature, in the shapes of trees, and in the movements of birds. He brings details to life. The Arboretum, with its rich collections of flora and fauna, has been a major interest of his for over 15 years, especially during blizzards, when dramatic photo opportunities appear. Digital photography, which offers a happy marriage of the arts and the sciences, lets him explore larger-format photography in creative ways through digital panorama techniques.

La Flor (The Flower) Part Three

PART THREE: "The aim of the project titled The Flower is similar to that of Stromboli, but with an added ingredient. The film does not set out to use an actress’ prior work to bring a particular emotion to a series of images. Instead, The Flower aspires to construct, to constitute this experience. The experience is the very film itself. Viewers see various actresses’ careers unfolding before their eyes, as part of the same film. The idea is that one film should be a series of films, an era in the life of four people, and that cinema should be able to show this passing of time, this learning, this process. That from the different inventions and fantasies that the avatars of the project gradually contribute, one can see eventually the true face of the four women, shining brightly through the fog of fiction." – Mariano Llinás.

Kalahari Perspectives: Anthropology, Photography, and the Marshall Family

Exhibitions-Current The new exhibition will explore the photographic representation of Kalahari people known as the Ju/’hoansi and /Gwi of Namibia.

In the 1950s, the Marshall family, based in Cambridge, Massachusetts, launched an effort to document the lives of these people before they were forever transformed. Culled from over 45,000 images, Kalahari Perspectives presents a select subset of the Marshalls’ photography and guides visitors through a process of actively “reading” the images to better understand their potential to transform perception.

The Endangered Species Project: New England

Gallery 224 at the Ceramics Program, Office for the Arts at Harvard is pleased to present an exhibition of work from Montana-based potter Julia Galloway's most recent body of work, The Endangered Species Project: New England. Galloway works from each state's official list of species identified as endangered, threatened or extinct. She has created a series of covered jars, one urn for each species, illustrating the smallest Agassiz Clam Shrimp to the largest Eastern Elk.   Galloway writes, "Recently I happened to read about the Wandering Albatross on a layover in an airport. The Wandering Albatross is one of the largest birds in the world, sporting a wing span up to eleven feet across and able to stay aloft for up to 30 days drafting on the oceans currents.

Future Fossil Art Exhibition

Visual artist Clarissa Tossin, a Radcliffe fellow in 2017–2018, expands upon her fellowship project with a newly commissioned exhibition that considers the ecology of an uncertain future. Inspired by Octavia E. Butler’s science fiction trilogy “Xenogenesis” (1989), in which the Amazon becomes the site for a new civilization of alien-human hybrids, Tossin speculates upon a postapocalyptic world following ecological collapse. Pairing DIY plastic recycling techniques with the materials and practices of Amazonian aesthetic traditions, Tossin highlights the contemporary footprint left in the geological sedimentation of the earth.

Young Mr. Lincoln

Shot on the heels of the landmark Stagecoach, John Ford's "Young Mr. Lincoln" brought the director his second critical and commercial success of 1939. Alongside "The Grapes Of Wrath" (1940) and "My Darling Clementine" (1946), this picture comprises a trifecta of masterworks exploring the American mythology that Ford and emerging talent Henry Fonda would make for Darryl Zanuck’s 20th Century Fox. In fact, it was Zanuck who offered the plum role of the fledgling lawyer/statesman to Fonda, who initially demurred, put off by the daunting prospect of approaching a character of such hallowed dimensions. According to Fonda's account, the director practically shamed him into accepting the part: “You're not playing the Great Emancipator but a jack-legged lawyer.” Such indeed is the case as we see our lanky future leader, fresh out of law school, and wet-behind-the-ears ambling into the frame.

The exhibition at the Harvard University Asia Center explores the intersection of art, disability, and mental health by displaying original works on paper and sculptures created by ten groundbreaking, self-taught artists from China and Japan. Their compelling, formally innovative artworks come in a wide range of styles and media, from gestural abstractions and proliferating figurations, to meticulous clay obelisks and eye-popping wall paintings. The first exhibition of works produced in art workshops for people with disabilities ever to take place at Harvard (and only the second devoted to self-taught artists since the Harvard Society for Contemporary Art’s Exhibition of American Folk Paintings in 1930), “Eye Eye Nose Mouth” offers an original contribution to an ongoing conversation about mental health and the acceptance of mental disability and mental illness in both local and international contexts.

Kalahari Perspectives: Anthropology, Photography, and the Marshall Family

Exhibitions-Current The new exhibition will explore the photographic representation of Kalahari people known as the Ju/’hoansi and /Gwi of Namibia. Once pejoratively called Bushmen, they have been — throughout history — photographed and otherwise imaged in an effort to exploit and colonize them. In the 1950s, the Marshall family, based in Cambridge, Massachusetts, launched an effort to document the lives of these people before they were forever transformed. Culled from over 45,000 images, Kalahari Perspectives presents a select subset of the Marshalls’ photography and guides visitors through a process of actively “reading” the images to better understand their potential to transform perception.

Hans Arp’s Constellations II

This exhibition presents the room-sized wall relief Constellations II by Alsatian artist and poet Hans Arp (1886–1966); it is the work’s first public viewing in 15 years. Commissioned for the Harvard Graduate Center by Harvard architecture professor and Bauhaus founding director Walter Gropius, the relief’s 13 panels were first installed in 1950 on facing walls of a popular dining room in Harkness Commons (now the Caspersen Center). Arp described its biomorphic shapes as primal forms inspired by nature, a connection made clear in the title of the work, which evokes a grouping of stars in the night sky. Constellations II inaugurated a new chapter in Arp’s postwar practice. It was his first large-scale, site-specific artwork and led to others, including a metal relief for the UNESCO headquarters in Paris. The Harvard Art Museums are closed on major holidays.

The Bauhaus and Harvard

"The Bauhaus and Harvard" — mounted in conjunction with the 100th anniversary of the founding of the Bauhaus in Weimar, Germany — presents nearly 200 works by 74 artists, drawn almost entirely from the Busch-Reisinger Museum’s extensive Bauhaus collection. Founded in 1919 and closed just 14 years later, the Bauhaus was the 20th century’s most influential school of art, architecture, and design. Harvard University played host to the first Bauhaus exhibition in the United States in 1930, and went on to become an unofficial center for the Bauhaus in America when founding director Walter Gropius joined Harvard’s department of architecture in 1937. Today the Busch-Reisinger Museum houses the largest Bauhaus collection outside Germany, initiated and assembled through the efforts of Gropius and many former teachers and students who emigrated from Nazi Germany, including Anni and Josef Albers, Herbert Bayer, Lyonel Feininger, and László Moholy-Nagy.

Materials Lab Workshop: The Matière — Material Experiments from the Bauhaus to Black Mountain College

Anni and Josef Albers, who began their artistic careers at the Bauhaus in Germany, encouraged their students at the school to test the mutability of materials through their juxtaposition, in an exercise called the matière — French for material. Fundamentally, the matière is concerned with combining textures or “surface appearances” of stuff. Can you make a hard material look soft? Can you make two disparate materials look the same? After a brief presentation and discussion to situate the topic historically, participants will be led by Albers Foundation educator Fritz Horstman through several matière exercises. Registration is required and space is limited. Materials fee must be paid to confirm registration. Minimum age of 14; no previous experience is required. Gazette Classification: Art/Design.

Eros and Agape in the Orthodox Tradition

Show on Harvard Gazette In this discussion, Professor Stamoulis will explore Orthodox Christian approach to the senses, eros, and art. Orthodox theological aesthetics have long been shrouded by pre-Christian and early Christian anthropologies that demonize erotic love, sexuality, desire, and pleasure. Stamoulis traces the textual roots of this demonization and juxtaposes them with the Song of Songs, the works of John Chrysostom, Basil of Ancara, and Symeon the New Theologian, and their appreciation of erotic passion and divine love. Born in Chalkidiki, Greece, Chysostomos Stamoulis studied Theology at the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki (Greece), and the Universities of Belgrade (Serbia) and Durham (UK). He is the Professor of Dogmatic Theology at the Faculty of Theology of the Aristotle University.

Daniel Urban Kiley Lecture: Dilip Da Cunha, “The Invention of Rivers”

Separating land and water is not just an act of division; it is also an act of creation. It creates land and water from ubiquitous wetness, defining them on either side of a line. It is one of the first acts of design, setting out a ground of habitation with a line that has largely been naturalized in features such as the coastline, the riverbank, and the water’s edge. These features are subjected to artistic representations, scientific inquiry, infrastructural engineering, and landscape design with little awareness of the act that brought them into being. Today, however, with the increasing frequency of flood and, not unrelatedly, sea-level rise attributed to climate change, the line of separation has come into sharp focus with proposals for walls, levees, natural defenses, and land retirement schemes. These responses raise questions on where the line is drawn, but they also raise questions on the separation that this line facilitates. Is this separation found in nature or does nature follow from its asserti… Gazette Classification: Art/Design. Environmental Sciences. Lecture. Sustainability.

The exhibition at the Harvard University Asia Center explores the intersection of art, disability, and mental health by displaying original works on paper and sculptures created by ten groundbreaking, self-taught artists from China and Japan. Their compelling, formally innovative artworks come in a wide range of styles and media, from gestural abstractions and proliferating figurations, to meticulous clay obelisks and eye-popping wall paintings. The first exhibition of works produced in art workshops for people with disabilities ever to take place at Harvard (and only the second devoted to self-taught artists since the Harvard Society for Contemporary Art’s Exhibition of American Folk Paintings in 1930), “Eye Eye Nose Mouth” offers an original contribution to an ongoing conversation about mental health and the acceptance of mental disability and mental illness in both local and international contexts.

Hans Arp’s Constellations II

This exhibition presents the room-sized wall relief Constellations II by Alsatian artist and poet Hans Arp (1886–1966); it is the work’s first public viewing in 15 years. Commissioned for the Harvard Graduate Center by Harvard architecture professor and Bauhaus founding director Walter Gropius, the relief’s 13 panels were first installed in 1950 on facing walls of a popular dining room in Harkness Commons (now the Caspersen Center). Arp described its biomorphic shapes as primal forms inspired by nature, a connection made clear in the title of the work, which evokes a grouping of stars in the night sky. Constellations II inaugurated a new chapter in Arp’s postwar practice. It was his first large-scale, site-specific artwork and led to others, including a metal relief for the UNESCO headquarters in Paris. The Harvard Art Museums are closed on major holidays.

Nuclear Waste Management in the Near Long-Term

Nuclear waste is a toxic, radioactive, and long-lasting byproduct to the generation of nuclear energy. It must be disposed of safely and ethically, ensuring that it will be isolated from the biosphere for millennia. Although burying nuclear waste in an underground repository has been extensively researched since the concept was proposed in the 1950s, the safe and ethical disposal of nuclear waste has not been successfully demonstrated anywhere in the world. There are two sets of challenges: 1) the technical difficulties involved in emplacing these radioactive materials underground and ensuring that they will remain there trapped for millennia, and 2) the social barriers arising from communities opposing the burial of nuclear wastes in their vicinity. Most of the technical research conducted thus far has been concerned with the behavior of the waste thousands to millions of years into the future, after it has been permanently emplaced underground.

"The Bauhaus and Harvard" — mounted in conjunction with the 100th anniversary of the founding of the Bauhaus in Weimar, Germany — presents nearly 200 works by 74 artists, drawn almost entirely from the Busch-Reisinger Museum’s extensive Bauhaus collection. Founded in 1919 and closed just 14 years later, the Bauhaus was the 20th century’s most influential school of art, architecture, and design. Harvard University played host to the first Bauhaus exhibition in the United States in 1930, and went on to become an unofficial center for the Bauhaus in America when founding director Walter Gropius joined Harvard’s department of architecture in 1937. Today the Busch-Reisinger Museum houses the largest Bauhaus collection outside Germany, initiated and assembled through the efforts of Gropius and many former teachers and students who emigrated from Nazi Germany, including Anni and Josef Albers, Herbert Bayer, Lyonel Feininger, and László Moholy-Nagy.

Future Fossil Art Exhibition

Visual artist Clarissa Tossin, a Radcliffe fellow in 2017–2018, expands upon her fellowship project with a newly commissioned exhibition that considers the ecology of an uncertain future. Inspired by Octavia E. Butler’s science fiction trilogy “Xenogenesis” (1989), in which the Amazon becomes the site for a new civilization of alien-human hybrids, Tossin speculates upon a postapocalyptic world following ecological collapse. Pairing DIY plastic recycling techniques with the materials and practices of Amazonian aesthetic traditions, Tossin highlights the contemporary footprint left in the geological sedimentation of the earth. These new works consider indigenous knowledge in relationship to the environment, while they also resemble ruins of a world yet to come. Gazette Classification: Art/Design. Exhibitions.

Promise and Perils of the Public Humanities Pivot

At a time when the humanities appear to be losing prestige — as measured by declining enrollments and skeptical views expressed by public officials, parents, and students — humanists and their institutions are seeking to highlight the worldly utility of the humanities to societies and individuals under the rubric of the Public Humanities.

The Subversive Politics of Sentient Places: Climate Change, Collective Ethics, and Environmental Justice in Northern Peru

Show on Harvard Gazette Poor mestizos in northern Peru offer a new way to theorize humanism and sentient landscapes that interact with humans in terms of environmental justice, collective ethics, and health. This model transcends the limits of ontological cosmopolitics and political ecology. Mestizos respond to climate change and environmental devastation and challenge the governance of late liberalism by engaging indigenous sentient landscapes as leaders of environmental movements and co-creators of an interethnic world. They attach moral agency to the natural world for social and environmental transformation and open up a new kind of political debate. By defining “community” and “well-being” as humans-in-relationship-to-places-as-persons, poor mestizos resignify “nature” itself as an anchor for social justice.

The Amazonian Travels of Richard Evans Schultes

Richard Evans Schultes — ethnobotanist, taxonomist, writer, photographer, and Harvard professor — is regarded as one of the most important plant explorers of the twentieth century. In 1941, Schultes traveled to the Amazon rainforest on a mission to study how Indigenous peoples used plants for medicinal, ritual, and practical purposes. A new interactive online map, produced by the Amazon Conservation Team, traces the landscapes and cultures that Schultes explored in the Colombian Amazon.

Kalahari Perspectives: Anthropology, Photography, and the Marshall Family

Exhibitions-Current The new exhibition will explore the photographic representation of Kalahari people known as the Ju/’hoansi and /Gwi of Namibia. Once pejoratively called Bushmen, they have been — throughout history — photographed and otherwise imaged in an effort to exploit and colonize them. In the 1950s, the Marshall family, based in Cambridge, Massachusetts, launched an effort to document the lives of these people before they were forever transformed. Culled from over 45,000 images, Kalahari Perspectives presents a select subset of the Marshalls’ photography and guides visitors through a process of actively “reading” the images to better understand their potential to transform perception.

Hans Arp’s Constellations II

This exhibition presents the room-sized wall relief Constellations II by Alsatian artist and poet Hans Arp (1886–1966); it is the work’s first public viewing in 15 years. Commissioned for the Harvard Graduate Center by Harvard architecture professor and Bauhaus founding director Walter Gropius, the relief’s 13 panels were first installed in 1950 on facing walls of a popular dining room in Harkness Commons (now the Caspersen Center). Arp described its biomorphic shapes as primal forms inspired by nature, a connection made clear in the title of the work, which evokes a grouping of stars in the night sky. Constellations II inaugurated a new chapter in Arp’s postwar practice. It was his first large-scale, site-specific artwork and led to others, including a metal relief for the UNESCO headquarters in Paris. The Harvard Art Museums are closed on major holidays.

The Bauhaus and Harvard

"The Bauhaus and Harvard" — mounted in conjunction with the 100th anniversary of the founding of the Bauhaus in Weimar, Germany — presents nearly 200 works by 74 artists, drawn almost entirely from the Busch-Reisinger Museum’s extensive Bauhaus collection. Founded in 1919 and closed just 14 years later, the Bauhaus was the 20th century’s most influential school of art, architecture, and design. Harvard University played host to the first Bauhaus exhibition in the United States in 1930, and went on to become an unofficial center for the Bauhaus in America when founding director Walter Gropius joined Harvard’s department of architecture in 1937. Today the Busch-Reisinger Museum houses the largest Bauhaus collection outside Germany, initiated and assembled through the efforts of Gropius and many former teachers and students who emigrated from Nazi Germany, including Anni and Josef Albers, Herbert Bayer, Lyonel Feininger, and László Moholy-Nagy.

Future Fossil Art Exhibition

Visual artist Clarissa Tossin, a Radcliffe fellow in 2017–2018, expands upon her fellowship project with a newly commissioned exhibition that considers the ecology of an uncertain future. Inspired by Octavia E. Butler’s science fiction trilogy “Xenogenesis” (1989), in which the Amazon becomes the site for a new civilization of alien-human hybrids, Tossin speculates upon a postapocalyptic world following ecological collapse. Pairing DIY plastic recycling techniques with the materials and practices of Amazonian aesthetic traditions, Tossin highlights the contemporary footprint left in the geological sedimentation of the earth. These new works consider indigenous knowledge in relationship to the environment, while they also resemble ruins of a world yet to come. Gazette Classification: Art/Design. Exhibitions.

Kalahari Perspectives: Anthropology, Photography, and the Marshall Family

Exhibitions-Current The new exhibition will explore the photographic representation of Kalahari people known as the Ju/’hoansi and /Gwi of Namibia. Once pejoratively called Bushmen, they have been — throughout history — photographed and otherwise imaged in an effort to exploit and colonize them. In the 1950s, the Marshall family, based in Cambridge, Massachusetts, launched an effort to document the lives of these people before they were forever transformed.

Hans Arp’s Constellations II

This exhibition presents the room-sized wall relief Constellations II by Alsatian artist and poet Hans Arp (1886–1966); it is the work’s first public viewing in 15 years. Commissioned for the Harvard Graduate Center by Harvard architecture professor and Bauhaus founding director Walter Gropius, the relief’s 13 panels were first installed in 1950 on facing walls of a popular dining room in Harkness Commons (now the Caspersen Center). Arp described its biomorphic shapes as primal forms inspired by nature, a connection made clear in the title of the work, which evokes a grouping of stars in the night sky. Constellations II inaugurated a new chapter in Arp’s postwar practice. It was his first large-scale, site-specific artwork and led to others, including a metal relief for the UNESCO headquarters in Paris. The Harvard Art Museums are closed on major holidays.

The Bauhaus and Harvard

"The Bauhaus and Harvard" — mounted in conjunction with the 100th anniversary of the founding of the Bauhaus in Weimar, Germany — presents nearly 200 works by 74 artists, drawn almost entirely from the Busch-Reisinger Museum’s extensive Bauhaus collection. Founded in 1919 and closed just 14 years later, the Bauhaus was the 20th century’s most influential school of art, architecture, and design. Harvard University played host to the first Bauhaus exhibition in the United States in 1930, and went on to become an unofficial center for the Bauhaus in America when founding director Walter Gropius joined Harvard’s department of architecture in 1937. Today the Busch-Reisinger Museum houses the largest Bauhaus collection outside Germany, initiated and assembled through the efforts of Gropius and many former teachers and students who emigrated from Nazi Germany, including Anni and Josef Albers, Herbert Bayer, Lyonel Feininger, and László Moholy-Nagy.

The Endangered Species Project: New England

Gallery 224 at the Ceramics Program, Office for the Arts at Harvard is pleased to present an exhibition of work from Montana-based potter Julia Galloway's most recent body of work, The Endangered Species Project: New England. Galloway works from each state's official list of species identified as endangered, threatened or extinct. She has created a series of covered jars, one urn for each species, illustrating the smallest Agassiz Clam Shrimp to the largest Eastern Elk.   Galloway writes, "Recently I happened to read about the Wandering Albatross on a layover in an airport. The Wandering Albatross is one of the largest birds in the world, sporting a wing span up to eleven feet across and able to stay aloft for up to 30 days drafting on the oceans currents. This bird flies unusually close to the water, so on average, every five minutes, one of these birds is decapitated by industrial fishing lines, and literally, it brought me to my knees with sorrow - what could I do?   "Making pottery is how I understand… Gazette Classification: Art/Design.

Transitions: Winter Into Spring Photographs of the Arnold Arboretum by Chris Morgan

Chris Morgan's goal as a photographer is to evoke the emotions he feels when he views patterns and textures in nature, in the shapes of trees, and in the movements of birds. He brings details to life. The Arboretum, with its rich collections of flora and fauna, has been a major interest of his for over 15 years, especially during blizzards, when dramatic photo opportunities appear. Digital photography, which offers a happy marriage of the arts and the sciences, lets him explore larger-format photography in creative ways through digital panorama techniques.

Future Fossil Art Exhibition

Visual artist Clarissa Tossin, a Radcliffe fellow in 2017–2018, expands upon her fellowship project with a newly commissioned exhibition that considers the ecology of an uncertain future. Inspired by Octavia E. Butler’s science fiction trilogy “Xenogenesis” (1989), in which the Amazon becomes the site for a new civilization of alien-human hybrids, Tossin speculates upon a postapocalyptic world following ecological collapse. Pairing DIY plastic recycling techniques with the materials and practices of Amazonian aesthetic traditions, Tossin highlights the contemporary footprint left in the geological sedimentation of the earth. These new works consider indigenous knowledge in relationship to the environment, while they also resemble ruins of a world yet to come. Gazette Classification: Art/Design. Exhibitions.

About this program: “Here is the stock exchange and the money, and the love of art” — On the Value of History Paintings in Rembrandt’s Amsterdam In the 17th century, Amsterdam’s booming art market saw explosive growth and diversification in the kinds of paintings that were produced — in terms of subject matter, format, style, and technique — and in the ways these works were marketed. Artists’ reputations and the prices each painter could ask also began to diverge dramatically. This lecture will focus on Rembrandt, who occupied an exceptional place among his peers in Amsterdam’s art scene. Eric Jan Sluijter will demonstrate how, in this environment,… Gazette Classification: Art/Design. Exhibitions. Organization/Sponsor: Harvard Art Museums.

American Sutra: Buddhism and the Incarceration of Japanese Americans during WWII

Show on Harvard Gazette Duncan Ryūken Williams will discuss his new book American Sutra: A Story of Faith and Freedom During the Second World War (Harvard University Press, Feb. 2019) about Buddhism and the WWII Japanese American internment. The fact that the vast majority of Japanese Americans were Buddhists was responsible for why nearly 120,000 persons of Japanese ancestry, two-third of whom were American citizens, were targeted for forcible removal from the Pacific coast states and incarcerated in remote interior camps surrounded by barbed wire. Ironically, their Buddhist faith was also what helped the Japanese-American community endure and persist at a time of dislocation, loss, and uncertainty. Based on newly translated Japanese-language diaries of Buddhist priests from the camps, extensive interviews with survivors of the camps, and newly declassified government documents about how Buddhism was seen as a national security threat, Williams argues that Japanese American Buddhists launched one of the most inspiring defenses of… Gazette Classification: Religion.

Los Barcos/Mar

Los Barcos: A short episode for the collective film "Here in Lisboa," "Los Barcos" stars veteran Chilean film and television star, and mother of Sotomayor, Francisca Castillo as an actress invited to present a film at an unnamed Lisbon festival. Freed from obligations after her screening, Castillo drifts across the Tagus River in search of an old friend. Sotomayor’s gentle film is an affectionate collaboration with her mother sparked by hints of deadpan humor that recall the work of Aki Kaurismäki. Mar: For her second feature, Sotomayor reached for a looser, improvisational structure and style, collaborating with her small cast and crew on an open script that was collectively written day by day on location and that incorporated chance events as they unfolded around them. As in Thursday Till Sunday, a road trip launches "Mar," this time with a young and awkwardly attached couple traveling to a family vacation house in an Argentine resort town.
