Working primarily in clay\, wood\, and stoneware and imparted with a hand-rubbed beeswax finish that unifies the works\, the artist explores the objects of conflict and emergencies from medieval-esque helmets and Norse weaponry\, to World War I and II era military machinery like cannons\, naval ships\, and aerial machines\, to a series of more common objects like a fire extinguisher\, a fire hose\, and sprinkler heads. Scaling these objects for a gallery space exposes viewers to objects from our own culture that they may not see without military service\, inviting reflection on their role in our geopolitical reality that may otherwise go unconsidered. \nVisiting Artist Colloquium Spring 2020\n2650 Humanities Building Ground Floor\n455 N Park St\, Madison WI\nWednesdays @ 5:00 – 6:15pm \nDiscover the latest developments in Fine art\, Craft\, and Design at our free public lectures by some of the nation’s most prominent artists\, critics\, and gallery and museum directors. \nThe Art Department Visiting Artist Colloquium is a series supported by the Anonymous Fund and the Brittingham Trust.

McKay Lecture in the Humanities is a reflection upon the rhetorical value of the “American Ideal” and what that ideal looks like when viewed through a racial prism. Prof. Jonathan Holloway presents a close reading of three objects—a Revolutionary War-era headstone\, a mid-twentieth century coin\, and the 21st century U.S. passport—to affirm Ralph Ellison’s poignant assertions about racial invisibility and offer a cutting assessment of the costs associated with the circulation of the transcendent national ideal. \n URL:https://arthistory.wisc.edu/event/lecture-jonathan-holloway-currency-race-and-the-circulation-of-the-american-ideal/ LOCATION:Conrad A.

The famed materialist and atheist wondered why nonbelievers should be deprived of asking about the great “riddle of existence.” In this Focus on the Humanities lecture\, Jennifer Ratner-Rosenhagen examines why\, beginning at the turn of the 20th century\, an increasing number of American and European intellectuals were drawn to asking these questions. She probes their conclusion that ultimate questions are inescapable for living the examined life both in the context of their 20th-century world\, and for us today. \n URL:https://arthistory.wisc.edu/event/jennifer-ratner-rosenhagen-ultimate-questions-incomplete-answers/ LOCATION:Conrad A.

It seeks presentations from scholars whose work aligns with one or more of the following themes: \n– National\, regional\, and global policy toward refugees: The Middle East is currently both the source of and host to some of the largest forcibly displaced populations in the world. What has been the response to this displacement on the part of national\, regional\, and global actors? What discourse about refugees and immigration have emerged from these various responses? How have these responses impacted and been impacted by refugees in/from the Middle East? \n– Refugees\, education\, and identity: Within the context of current massive displacements\, schools (and education at large) play a very important role in shaping young people’s identity through education policies\, teaching practices\, content of knowledge taught and learned\, and language of instruction. How have teaching practices in the realms of socio-political analysis\, scientific inquiry\, and language impacted and been impacted by refugees in and from the Middle East? How is refugee identity transformed by and transforming the education practices geared toward integration into the host state? \n– Refugees and artistic representations: Contemporary artists and writers have used a wide range of mediums to not only to capture experiences of forced displacement\, but also to bring awareness to the healing power of artistic expression in relation to the trauma of forced displacement\, and to highlight the role of art in transcultural communication in host countries. How have contemporary artists and writers responded to the recent refugee crises within and emanating from the Middle East? \nWhile its geographical focus is the Middle East\, the conference seeks to contribute to a better understanding of the challenges related to forced migration in the 21st century and to weigh in on attempts to find constructive solutions to these challenges. It aims to open up new ways of thinking about refugees and telling the many important and yet untold stories of migration. \n URL:https://arthistory.wisc.edu/event/conference-on-refugees-in-from-the-middle-east-policy-implications-education-and-artistic-representations/ LOCATION:313 Pyle Center\, 702 Langdon St.\, Madison\, WI\, 53706\, United States CATEGORIES:Conference ATTACH;FMTTYPE=image/jpeg:https://arthistory.wisc.edu/wp-content/uploads/sites/1020/2020/02/refuge.jpg END:VEVENT BEGIN:VEVENT DTSTART;TZID=America/Chicago:20200309T093000 DTEND;TZID=America/Chicago:20200309T160000 DTSTAMP:20200226T002530 CREATED:20200103T034712Z LAST-MODIFIED:20200103T034712Z UID:2126-1583746200-1583769600@arthistory.wisc.edu SUMMARY:2020 UW-Madison Art Master of Fine Arts Exhibition Season DESCRIPTION:We are excited to announce the new 2020 Masters of Fine Arts Exhibition season at the University of Wisconsin-Madison\, on view February 17–April 17\, 2020.
