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.

WAIKIKI PARC FEATURES JANET TRAN

SQUARE - TRAN Janet

Jelly Beans-S  SATELLITE

JANET TRAN at WAIKIKI PARC GALLERY
June 30 – September 9, 2016
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.

SPONSORS: University of Hawai‘i at Mānoa Department of Art + Art History, College of Arts + Humanities, and Waikiki Parc Hotel – Hospitality Sponsor for the Arts at UH Mānoa

UNDER PRESSURE: EDITIONED PRINTS FROM ART 318, INTERMEDIATE PRINTMAKING

IMG_4090)600x600

Jelly Beans-E  EXHIBITION

Under Pressure: Editioned Prints from ART 318, Intermediate Printmaking
July 11 – 29, 2016
Commons Gallery

The tradition of printing in multiples dates to the 16th century. At its core lies the purpose of printmaking: the intent to disseminate images or text to a wider audience. In contemporary practice, “edition printing,” the production of duplicate images of consistent quality exists in the realms of both high art professional print workshops and the garage studios of the poster-making community.

The printmaking studio at the University of Hawai‘i at Mānoa (UHM) pays respect to the vital skills required for duplicate printing and the difficulty and challenges inherent in this manner of working. Our curriculum supports the development of the technical discipline and work ethic necessary for edition printing to function as a meaningful and successful method of graphic production of multiples.

Under Pressure presents a survey of work produced by over 50 students in the printmaking studios of UHM from 2010–2016. Each individual print comes from an edition of at least 15 impressions.

Curator: Charles Cohan, professor of art, UHM

AESTHETIC SURPLUS KOMPANY PRESENTS . . .

Square - CHAMBERLAIN

Jelly Beans-E  EXHIBITION

AESTHETIC SURPLUS KOMPANY PRESENTS . . .
features works by Peter Chamberlain, professor of electronic art, University of Hawai‘i at Mānoa
August 22 – September 16, 2016
The Art Gallery

Sunday, August 28
2-3 pm, Gallery walk-through with the artist
3-5 pm, Reception, The Art Gallery

September 1, 2016
3-4 pm, Gallery walk-through with the artist, The Art Gallery

Aesthetic Surplus Kompany (A.S.K.) was established in 1976 by Peter Chamberlain, a.k.a. Captain Random, in Vancouver, B.C., Canadada [sic]. Its manifesto stated that art is a verb, not a noun. Art can be witnessed when it is happening in real time. After that, what we tend to refer to as art is more realistically a commodified document of the act(ion)—more appropriately referred to as aesthetic surplus. Simple.

Emphasizing that premise, this exhibition will maintain the integrity of offering witness to real-time creative activity, primarily through either performed or feedback-responsive audio and video systems that modulate data from sculptural props. Aesthetic surplus from such activity will also be presented when real-time activity is not practical.

Ultimately, the challenge to Chamberlain will lie in his ability to actively manipulate the space into a constantly evolving and provocative experience for 23 straight days—a marathon of improvisational activity. Details will be announced as they materialize.

IMAYŌ: JAPAN’S NEW TRADITIONISTS

ImayoLogo600x600

Jelly Beans-E  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.

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

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

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

The Shoto Museum of Art (Shōtō Bijutsukan), Tokyo
April 4 – May 21, 2017

EXHIBITION DESCRIPTION:
Imayō: Japan’s New Traditionists 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.”

Curated by John Szostak, professor of Japanese art history at the University of Hawai‘i at Mānoa (UHM), the exhibition features a wide range of art media, including textiles, paintings, ceramics, lacquer wares, and both carved wood and cast-metal sculptures, as well as a number of historical works on view at two venues. Approximately fifty artworks, including larger-scale works and installations are highlighted at The Art Gallery at UHM. Imayō artworks will also be on display at the Honolulu Museum of Art, where they will be presented alongside examples of pre-twentieth century Japanese art from the museum’s collection, demonstrating their sources of inspiration. For an optimum experience, viewers are invited to visit both venues, each of which has its own special dimension and unique works.

After its presentation in Honolulu, Imayō will travel to The Shoto Museum Museum of Art (Shōtō Bijutsukan) in Tokyo. Additional venues are under consideration.

Public Lecture
Thursday, December 1 / 3:00-4:15 pm
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).
