GANZEER: ART TALK 2/4/15

GANZEER
Art Talk: Tackling Elephants (and Other Stories)
Wednesday, February 4, 2015 at noon to 1:15pm
BURNS HALL (room 2118)

Ganzeer is the pseudonym of an Egyptian artist operating mainly between graphic design and contemporary art since 2007. He is not an author, comicbook artist, installation artist, painter, speaker, street artist, or videographer, though he has assumed these roles in a number of places around the world. His art has been shown in Bahrain, Belgium, Brazil, Canada, Finland, Germany, Jordan, the Netherlands, Switzerland, United Arab Emirates, and the United States, as well as in myriad Cairo galleries.

Art in America Magazine has referred to Ganzeer’s work as “New Realism,” and the Huffington Post ranked him among “25 Street Artists from Around the World who are Shaking Up Public Art.” but Ganzeer rejects both labels and regards Bidoun magazine’s description of him as a “contingency artist” as probably the most accurate, while Ganzeer refers to his own practice as Concept Pop. Al-Monitor.com has placed him on a list of “50 People Shaping the Culture of the Middle East” (2013), and he is also one of the protagonists in a critically acclaimed documentary “Art War” (2014) by German director Marco Wilms.

Ganzeer is currently based in Brooklyn, New York.

SHIGEYUKI KIHARA
“Shigeyuki Kihara: Artist as Performer”
Friday, October 31
2-3 pm, Public lecture
ART Auditorium

From Samoa and Aotearoa/ New Zealand, Shigeyuki Kihara is an interdisciplinary artist whose work engages in a variety of social, political and cultural issues. While currently working with photography, performance and video, Kihara often uses her body as an artistic medium to question colonial representations of the Pacific and the varying relationships between gender, race, culture and politics.

Kihara is a curator and well respected facilitator of educational and community based arts events. Her work has been presented at the Asia Pacific Triennial of Contemporary Art (Australia), Auckland Triennial (New Zealand), Sakahàn Quinquennial (Canada) and Daegu Photo Biennial (South Korea). In 2008, Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York presented a solo exhibition of Kihara’s work entitled ‘Living Photographs’ featuring highlights of her interdisciplinary practice, followed by an acquisition of her works by the museum for their permanent collection. This year, Kihara’s work was acquired by the Allen Memorial Art Museum in Ohio and the Los Angeles County Museum of Art.

Kihara’s work is the subject of a mid-career survey exhibition entitled Undressing the Pacific, organized and presented by the Hocken Collections, University of Otago in New Zealand. Undressing the Pacific is currently touring throughout museum institutions in New Zealand from 2013 till 2015.

Following the Shigeyuki Kihara’s lecture there will be a performance and installation event from 3-5 pm in Commons Gallery, Department of Art & Art History. This lecture is the closing event for the exhibition ArtSpeak (http://www.hawaii.edu/art/exhibitions+events/exhibitions/?p=523)

Co-sponsors: Honolulu Biennial and UHM’s Academy for Creative Media, American Studies, Center for Pacific Island Studies, Department of Art & Art History Department, Ethnic Studies, Museum Studies Program, and Samoan Studies.

“Technology, Prosthesis, and Material Practice”
Bryan Czibesz, Intersections Visiting Artist

Bryan Czibesz is an artist whose work invokes the notion of the prosthesis in an examination of the curious intersection between technology and human physicality. His practice explores a range of materials and fabrication technologies—including hand building with clay, printing digital 3D prototypes, tinkering with microcontrollers—and the resultant sculptural configurations are juxtapositions of visceral with mechanical, biological with artificial, and austere with humorous, that often invoke the viewer as active witness/participant.

Originally from Ohio, Bryan received a BA from Humboldt State University, an MFA from San Diego State University, and has shown his work in solo and group exhibitions throughout the United States. He has taught at Arcadia University in Pennsylvania, Rowan University in New Jersey, and was an Artist-in-Residence at The Clay Studio in Philadelphia from 2009 to 2011, where he also taught. He is currently Assistant Professor of Art in Ceramics at SUNY New Paltz.
