Originally from Northern Ireland Jacqueline is based in Hawai‘i. She creates conceptual objects that often question and re-contextualize their original materials and conventional use, often blurring the line between genres, or seeking to push the technical boundaries and expectations of a particular medium. Jacqueline has worked primarily with the book form for eighteen years. She received her MFA from UHM in 2000.

Select group exhibitions include: Odd Volumes: Book Art from the Allan Chasanoff Collection (Yale University Art Gallery), Boundless:The Book Transformed in Contemporary Art (Mesa Contemporary Arts Museum), The Book Borrowers: Contemporary Artists Transforming the Book (Bellevue Arts Museum), Unhinged: Book Art on the Cutting Edge (Whatcom Museum), Metamorphosis: The Art of Altered Books (Fuller Craft Museum), and NextNewPaper (San Jose Institute of Contemporary Art). Jacqueline is working on a solo exhibition in the Fall of 2017 at the Honolulu Museum of Art.

THE LAMINATED PRINT: ORIGINS + PROCESS OF CHINE COLLÉ

THE LAMINATED PRINT: ORIGINS + PROCESS OF CHINE COLLÉ
SEPTEMBER 4 – DECEMBER 9, 2016
John Young Museum of Art

Special events + MORE!

The Laminated Print: Origins + Process of Chine Collé is a collaborative project that brings together contemporary printmakers, conservators, and art historians to inspire visual thinking about the process of chine collé and draw relationships to paper traditions from China and Japan.

Chine collé, also called papier collé or chine appliqué, refers to the process in which a thin sheet of paper is simultaneously printed upon and mounted onto a thicker backing sheet. The process is used in various ways today including in lithography and intaglio printing. Chine collé brings out a range of visual possibilities in the conjunction of ink and paper, including richer tones, finer details, smoother textures, and an elegant style. The delicate techniques of chine collé originated from China and Japan where traditions of papermaking and mounting traditions have existed for hundreds of years. Chinese and Japanese mounting and conservation techniques require highly refined skills and are considered an art onto itself.

The exhibition includes prints by Charles Cohan, Duncan Dempster, Deborah Nehmad, and Yoshimi Teh, and a selection of Chinese and Japanese scrolls and screens from the collection of the John Young Museum of Art. The scrolls and screens were selected and researched by Gary Liu, art historian and specialist in Chinese art, and Hiroko Sakurai, East Asian painting and paper conservator. Conservation workshops by Hiroko Sakurai and demos by chine collé printmakers will be held in conjunction with this exhibition.

SPONSORS:
This exhibition and related programming is sponsored and supported by the
Department of Art + Art History, John Young Museum of Art, Student Activity and Program Fee Board, Honolulu Printmakers, and Hawai’i Museum Association.

Phantasm exhibits artwork that draws inspiration from natural phenomena, such as water, in that visible and tangible substances can evoke contemplation on invisible realities.

IMAYŌ : JAPAN’S NEW TRADITIONISTS

imayo

Jelly Beans-E  EXHIBITION

The exhibition IMAYŌ: JAPAN’S NEW TRADITIONISTS shows that the past is alive and with us. Animé, manga, and pop culture, along with Japan’s rich art and craft traditions provide a focus for this exhibition of contemporary art. Six artists utilize their innovations and technical mastery to propel those traditions toward new directions in the twenty-first century. Unique works are presented at two venues.

October 2 – December 2, 2016
The Art Gallery at the University of Hawai‘i at Mānoa

October 13, 2016 – January 8, 2017
Honolulu Museum of Art

Additional Exhibition-Related Program!

EXHIBITION DESCRIPTION
The exhibition examines the inspirational power of historical Japanese art and craft traditions in the work of six contemporary artists, all of whom utilize their expertise in the history and technical mastery of Japan’s rich pre-twentieth century art and craft traditions. Their artworks demonstrate how cultural heritage can inspire transformational and innovative thinking, with the potential to renew and reinvigorate the familiar and the conventional. The exhibition both honors and transcends the confines of “tradition,” reflecting and commenting upon Japan’s own complex relationship with the past. This approach is ironically referenced in the exhibition title word Imayō, a Japanese term of ancient origin that means “in the contemporary style.” After its presentation in Honolulu, Imayō will travel to The Shoto Museum Museum of Art (Shōtō Bijutsukan) in Tokyo. Additional venues are under consideration.

PARTICIPATING ARTISTS
ISHII Tōru, KIMURA Ryōko, MITSUTA Haruo, SOMEYA Satoshi, TANADA Kōji, and YAMAMOTO Tarō

Jelly Beans-E  EXHIBITION

1000 UTOPIAS : Nick Potter
OCTOBER 9 – NOVEMBER 4, 2016
Commons Gallery

Sunday, October 9
3:00-5:00 pm, Reception

Thursday, October 13
3:00-4:30 pm, Public lecture, Art Building, Room 101

Nick Potter presents 1000 Utopias, a new series of works based on his visits to architectural sites in Europe. Some of his new works combine contrasting forms of architecture—Modernist and Islamic

Artist Statement:
Attempts to create utopian societies often remain most visible in their architectural designs. Whether Roman, Renaissance, Modernist, Soviet, or Fascist, attempts to construct ideal cities are only realized for brief moments.

It can be argued that the greatest examples of a cultures architecture reflect its ideologies and values. The architecture becomes a form of propaganda.

Idealized, pseudo-utopias are often highly seductive. On the surface we see an appealing, perfected world. But as one contemplates the ideal further, we realize these paradises are false. As one looks more closely, the sinister realities of unchecked late-capitalism, imperialism, fundamentalism and fascism begin to emerge.

Ultimately, I use architecture as a prism to examine symbols of power.

—Nick Potter, July, 2016

Potter is a professor at California State University, Fresno.

Jelly Beans-A  [PUBLIC LECTURE]  VISITING  SCHOLAR

JOHN CARPENTER
Friday, October 14 / 5:30–7:00 pm / UHM Art Auditorium

The Past as Future in Japanese Contemporary Art
Drawing on his experience as a curator of exhibitions of traditional Japanese art at The Metropolitan Museum of Art, John Carpenter will comment on the works of various contemporary artists, both Japan-born and Western, who incorporate images or concepts from premodern East Asian art. Sometimes, as in the work of Yamaguchi Akira, Hisashi Tenmyouya, as well as the artists featured in Imayō: Japan’s New Traditionists, the citation process is intentional and conspicuous though the artist’s motives are by no means reverential. References to the past in the dazzlingly complex drawings of Manabu Ikeda draw on a collectively shared set of imagery, such as Hokusai’s Great Wave, that for the artist seems to be the foundation for an ecologically aware, forward looking or even prophetic world view.

JOHN CARPENTER is a Mary Griggs Burke Curator of Japanese Art at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, where he has worked since the summer of 2011. From 1999 to 2009 he taught the history of Japanese art at the School of Oriental and African Studies (SOAS), University of London, and served as Head of the London Office of the Sainsbury Institute for the Study of Japanese Arts and Cultures. He has also taught courses at the University of Heidelberg. From 2009 to 2011 he was Visiting Professor at the University of Tokyo. He has published widely on Japanese art, especially in the areas of calligraphy, painting, and woodblock prints. Among his recent publications is a catalogue of an exhibition at the Metropolitan Museum, Designing Nature: The Rinpa Aesthetic in Japanese Art (2012).

Carpenter’s lecture is a part of exhibition IMAYO. [ For more information ]

Room 101, ART Building
book signing to follow lecture

“Production Values: Narratives of Making in Contemporary Art”
Today’s artists have an unprecedented level of choice with regard to materials and methods available to them, yet the processes involved in making artworks are rarely addressed in books or exhibitions on art.

In this lecture, preeminent craft theorist and historian Glenn Adamson will draw from his new book Art in the Making (co-authored with Julia Bryan-Wilson). He will share stories from contemporary art, which collectively demonstrate that the materials and methods used to make artworks hold the key to artists’ motivations, their attitudes to authorship, uniqueness and the value of objects, the economic and social contexts from which they emerge, and their approach to the perceived opposition between materiality and conceptualism in art.

Glenn Adamson is a curator and theorist who works across the fields of design, craft and contemporary art. He was until March 2016 the Director of the Museum of Arts and Design, New York. He has previously been Head of Research at the V&A (Victoria and Albert Museum – UK), and Curator at the Chipstone Foundation in Milwaukee. His publications include Art in the Making (2016, co-authored with Julia Bryan Wilson); Invention of Craft (2013); Postmodernism: Style and Subversion (2011); The Craft Reader (2010); and Thinking Through Craft (2007).

WAIKIKI PARC FEATURES JANET TRAN

SQUARE - TRAN Janet

Jelly Beans-S  SATELLITE

JANET TRAN at WAIKIKI PARC GALLERY
June 30 – September 9, 2016, EXTENDED through November 10
Public Reception: Thursday, June 30, 2016 / 6-8pm

Because of Honolulu’s recent rapid urban growth, Janet Tran became interested in how built environment influences human experience. She bases her works on recognizable structures, forms, and elements drawn from architecture, but jars our expectations by using unconventional materials ranging from leaves to cardboard. In this exhibition Tran playfully continues this investigation by merging modular modernist sculptures with plush.

Tran was recently awarded a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from Department of Art + Art History, University of Hawai‘i at Mānoa (UHM).

This exhibition is an expanded arts partnership of the University of Hawai‘i at Mānoa, the Halekulani and its sister hotel, the Waikiki Parc.

Guitarist Aaron Cardenas will provide music at the opening reception. Cardenas, received his Bachelor of Music degree from UHM’s Department of Music, and will be attending Yale University’s graduate program this September. He has studied with guitar virtuosos Benjamin Verdery, Frederic Hand, Carlos Barbosa Lima, and the Brazilian Guitar Duo’s Douglas Lora and João Luiz.
