- The Barberini Tapestries: Woven Monuments of Baroque Rome
September 23 – January 21, 2018. Free public reception on Friday, September 22, from 6 to 8 p.m Jordan Schnitzer Museum of Art in Eugene, Oregon. http://jsma.uoregon.edu/Barberini This exhibition focuses on the Barberini tapestries, some of the most splendid and important “portable monuments” of seventeenth century Rome. It is a collaborative project that has at its core the Life of Christ tapestry set in the collection of the Cathedral recently conserved by the Textile Conservation Lab. Both venues present the tapestries in a richly layered context that expands their artistic, political, religious, allegorical, technical, and anthropological themes. The exhibition also addresses the flexibility of use and installation that is a defining aspect of the tapestry medium. A scholarly catalogue written by James G. Harper and Marlene Eidelheit accompanies the exhibition, and an interactive online learning experience, http://barberini.uoregon.edu/, created by University of Oregon’s Department of Geography and Campus GIS Office.
- Gender Bender
October 21, 2017 – March 11, 2018. Reception: October 28, 2017 2:00 – 5:00pm. Curator’s lecture: 3:00pm. Gender Bend: Women in Wood, Men at the Loom is a multi-media exhibition featuring renowned male weavers alongside top female wood turners – two populations that have been traditionally underrepresented in their fields. Curated by Tib Shaw and Jon Eric Riis, this project will introduce the public to remarkable artists who challenge our long-held perceptions about their chosen fields, while encouraging new practitioners to consider mediums rich in possibility. The visually resplendent exhibition offers wide appeal, providing multiple engagement opportunities across all audiences. Among the 14 tapestry artists included in the exhibition are Jon Eric Riis, Archie Brennan, Wence Martinez, Irv Trujillo, Jean Pierre Larochette, Klaus Anselm, James Bassler, Michael Rohde, Murray Gibson and others. We are proud to share their outstanding works with the community.
