HINDSIGHT / INSIGHT: Reflecting on the Collection


Events

Flight
August 24 – December 1, 2018
Raymond Jonson Gallery

Curated by sheri crider and Traci Quinn, Curator of Education and Public Programs

Flight is a multi-media installation by Albuquerque artist sheri crider that examines connections between empathy, personal transformation, mass incarceration, and migration. Using her own story as well as the stories of incarcerated migrants as a point of departure, this exhibition is centered on understanding the personal experiences and social implications of mass incarceration. The migratory birds serve as visual metaphor, bringing focused attention to the imprisonment of migrants, asylum seekers, and refugees. Flight represents the culmination of a year and a half of research, artistic collaborations, and creative interventions into social injustices. This project combines education, community partnerships, visual art, and fundraising to expand the practical capacity of art-making into forms of discourse, civic engagement, and empathy building. The exhibit is deeply personal and intentionally socially engaged.

The exhibition and series of events are partially sponsored by a grant from Albuquerque Community Foundation and the Right of Return Fellowship, which supports formerly incarcerated artists creating original works that can further criminal justice reform in partnership with advocates and organizers.

en la galería Raymond Jonson

Curado por sheri crider and Traci Quinn

Flight es una instalación multimedia realizada por la artista de Albuquerque sheri crider que examina las conexiones entre la empatía, la transformación personal, el encarcelamiento masivo y la migración. Partiendo desde su propia historia, así como de las historias de migrantes encarcelados, crider centra esta exposición en la comprensión de las experiencias personales y las implicaciones sociales de la encarcelación masiva. Aquí, las aves migratorias sirven como metáfora visual para enfocar la atención sobre el encarcelamiento de migrantes, solicitantes de asilo y refugiados. Flight representa la culminación de un año y medio de colaboraciones artísticas, intervenciones creativas e investigación sobre injusticias sociales. Este proyecto combina educación, enlaces comunitarios, arte visual y la recaudación de fondos para expandir la capacidad práctica del quehacer artístico que fomenta formas de discurso, compromiso cívico y la edificación de empatía. La exposición es profundamente personal e intencionalmente comprometida con la sociedad.

La exhibición y eventos colaterales están patrocinados parcialmente por la beca Right of Return, que apoya a artistas anteriormente encarcelados para producir obras originales que, junto con aliados y activistas, promuevan una reforma a la justicia penal.

HINDSIGHT / INSIGHT: Reflecting on the Collection
August 24, 2018 – TBD
Main Gallery

Opening Event, Friday, August 24, 4:00-7:00 PM

Curated by Mary Statzer, Curator of Prints and Photographs UNM Art Museum

HINDSIGHT / INSIGHT: Reflecting on the Collection, highlights over 50 artworks acquired since the museum was founded in 1962. This is the first in an ongoing series of exhibitions and programs celebrating the University of New Mexico Art Museum’s dedication to developing a teaching collection.

The exhibition focuses primarily on international art movements of the 1960s and 70s including Pop, Minimalism, Conceptual Art and California Funk. Visitors will discover the museum’s rich holdings from this era by artists such as Robert Arneson, Joan Brown, Judy Chicago, Bruce Conner, Luis Jiménez, Bridget Riley, Ed Ruscha, Robert Ryman and Andy Warhol.

Also on view are modernist works by artists who have strong connections to the university and New Mexico. The selections by Clinton Adams, Rebecca Salsbury James, Raymond Jonson, Georgia O’Keeffe, Agnes Pelton, Florence Miller Pierce and Horace Towner Pierce acknowledge the contributions these artists made to New Mexico’s artistic heritage.

Though the art historical importance of the objects in HINDSIGHT / INSIGHT is noteworthy, this exhibition encourages critical thought and conversation on the role of university museums and the practice of art collecting. It is an exhibition that asks where art objects come from, why they look the way they do and how they earned their place within the museum walls.
