AESTHETIC SURPLUS KOMPANY PRESENTS . . .

Square - CHAMBERLAIN

Jelly Beans-E  EXHIBITION

AESTHETIC SURPLUS KOMPANY PRESENTS . . .
features works by Peter Chamberlain, UHM professor of electronic art
August 22 – September 16, 2016
The Art Gallery

Peter Chamberlain goes all out with Aesthetic Surplus Kompany Presents . . . , an unprecedented exhibition of not-yet-realized works that integrate real-time analog video and sound. Constantly modulating events, environments, and performances will be activated by a feedback-responsive analog electronica system that will facilitate real-time interactions between Chamberlain and control elements that respond to movement, sculptural constructions, other interactive scenarios, and performative collaborations with guest artists. Aesthetic surplus from these activities will also be exhibited.

Special Events + MORE!

Artist Statement:
Aesthetic Surplus Kompany (A.S.K.) was established in 1976 by Peter Chamberlain, a.k.a. Captain Random, in Vancouver, B.C., Canada. 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.

This exhibition will emphasize that premise and will maintain the integrity of offering witness to real-time creative activity, primarily through either performed or feedback-responsive audio and video systems fed with 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.

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).

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.

Gallery Hours / Mon. – Fri. 1:00 p.m. – 4:00 p.m. or by appointment

THINGS SEEN: JOSEPH STANTON POETRY READING

Jelly Beans-A  ART EVENT

Things Seen: Joseph Stanton Poetry Reading
Sunday, September 11
The Art Gallery
4:30-6:00 pm

Joseph Stanton, a professor of Art History and American Studies at the University of Hawai‘i at Mānoa, reads from his new book of art-inspired poems, just published this year by Brick Road Poetry Press. Stanton will read poems inspired by paintings, fairy tales, and noh plays. Stanton’s new book, Things Seen, was a finalist in a national competition and was published earlier this year by Brick Road Poetry Press. Early comments on the book include Ravi Shankar’s declaration that “Joseph Stanton’s Things Seen is one of the best books of poetry this year.” Things Seen is Stanton’s fifth book of poems and his second collection of art-inspired pieces. He regards it as a continuation of his 1999 book Imaginary Museum: Poems on Art. His research work also involves intersections of the literary and the visual, and, as a scholar, he has authored studies on Winslow Homer, Edward Hopper, Edward Gorey, Maurice Sendak, Richard Howard, Donald Hall, Margaret Wise Brown, children’s picture books, artist-writer collaborations, ekphrastic poetry, and many other image/word topics.

More info on Joseph Stanton

At 4:30 on Sunday, September 11, Joseph Stanton will be giving a reading from his new collection at The Art Gallery at the University of Hawai‘i at Mānoa. The reading is free, and parking is usually free on campus on Sundays.

Admission to the reading is free. Parking info.

For more information on Things Seen: Joseph Stanton Poetry Reading

Additional info about Joseph Stanton:

Stanton’s works as a poet have, however, special importance for him, an emphasis exemplified by his publication of over 400 poems in journals and anthologies, including appearances in such prestigious magazines as Poetry, Harvard Review, New Letters, Antioch Review, Poetry East, and New York Quarterly. In connection with his new book, Poets House in New York City asked him to present Starting with Art, a poetry workshop offering perspectives on how responses to artworks can lead to the creation of poems. While touring his book in New York City this summer, he gave a reading from it at the Cell Theater for the Irish American Artists & Writers Salon, and a group of four actors workshopped Things Seen as a sequence of dramatic readings at The Directors Company.

IMAYŌ: JAPAN’S NEW TRADITIONISTS

ImayoLogo600x600

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
