Title

Reading and Writing at the Scene of Political Failure: Language in Experimental Art in Yugoslavia, 1976-80

Description

Since the advent of Conceptualism in the 1960s, artists in many different parts of the world have used language as an important part of their visual art practices. This lecture analyzes works by Mladen Stilinović and Vlado Martek, two young artists based in Zagreb, in Communist Yugoslavia, in the late 1970s. For Martek and Stilinović, words and performances of reading and writing were central to art-making. I argue that, in their practices, language was connected to questions about the relationship between aesthetics and politics, in a politically conservative decade following the failure of mass political protests in Yugoslavia.

Annabelle Gould

Associate Professor, Visual Communication Design

Title

Type A to Type B (with 12,899 Steps in Between)

Axel Roesler

Associate Professor, Interaction Design
Marsha and Jay Glazer Endowed University Professor

Into the Line of Sight

Description

Roesler’s research combines design and cognitive systems engineering to shape meaningful experiences at the intersection of people, technology, and work. His projects explore interaction design in aviation and medical settings such as the physical layout and spatial flight data organization for commercial flight deck with Boeing, the design of an Anesthesia Medication Template to reduce medication errors in the operating room with Seattle Children’s Hospital, and interaction models for holographic flight information displays with Honeywell Aerospace. His research converges in the exploration of new line of sight interaction models for Augmented and Virtual Reality.

Stuart Lingo

Associate Professor, Art History

October 24

5pm, room 227/229 RSVP now

Title

Painting's Dreams at the End of the World: America, Ancient Grotesques, and Artistic Invention c. 1500

Description

Art, the artist, and the imagination attained unprecedented significance around 1500 in a Europe upended by cultural transformation, religious reform, and millenarian expectations. These years also witnessed Europe's decisive encounter with the Americas. Art history has perceived little overlap between this epochal event and the fascination with Greco-Roman antiquity that drove much period artistic experimentation. Yet, in imaginative sketches by Albrecht Dürer, revolutionary religious frescoes by Luca Signorelli, and a flight of butterflies from a singular mythological painting, we can recover a lost history in which antiquity and the "new world" intertwined to inspire a culture in search of self-renewal.

Timea Tihanyi

Senior Lecturer, Interdisciplinary Visual Arts

October 30

6pm, room 227/229 RSVP now

Title

Making Meaning: Digital Forms, Tactile Processes

Description

Tihanyi will discuss the interconnected nature of her creative research, teaching, and mentoring activities from the past five years, including her work in the Interdisciplinary Visual Arts program and through Slip Rabbit, the first digital ceramics studio in the Pacific Northwest. Assessing through the lens of craft tradition, Tihanyi will also describe her cross-disciplinary collaborations with math and design, which explore the intersection of algorithmic processes and the physicality of the tangible world.
