Art Exhibit: Otherness²: Hiding in Plain Sight by Lee Ann Harrison-Houser, Richardson Family Art Gallery (Arts and Cultural (On Campus))
Description:

Otherness²: Hiding in Plain Sight explores the outsider’s perspectives and the impact of “Othering.” During the creative process, Harrison-Houser pursues authenticity and begins to reveal untold stories in her work. However, she instinctively hides within the mark-making with her use of symbolism, sgraffito, and abstraction. Layer after layer of gesso and paint erase her disclosures. Subsequently, the art installation shares these stories only in a type of Hide-and-Seek game for the viewer. For deeper connections, the viewer physically moves to a separate space to match the conceptual titles back to the abstract squares. Through this physical movement and mindfulness, the storyteller role shifts away from the artist and moves to the viewer to create awareness, conversation, and the momentum for change.

Art Exhibit: Props: Personal Identities in the Portrait Photography of Richard Samuel Roberts, Richardson Family Art Museum (lower level) (Arts and Cultural (On Campus))
Description:

Props: Personal identities in the Portrait Photography of Richard Samuel Roberts

 

The term “props” brings to mind the objects used in the theater that help establish the meaning of a scene. In this theater context, the word is shortened from “properties,” things collectively owned by a theater group. But could the term also reflect the notion that props show “properties” of a character, offering layers of information and meaning to a viewer.? “Props” is also a slang term, meaning “proper respect.” In this show, we analyze the props in photographic portraits taken by RSR between 1920-1936 to see the way that the “props”—most often objects chosen by the sitters themselves—tell us something about the self-identity of the sitters. The objects chosen often underscore the proper respect due the sitters based on their attainments, but also can give insights—in an otherwise very formulaic genre—into the inner desires and predilections of the sitters. Props thus can help us see beyond the surface, or, perhaps conversely, can reify socially-agreed upon tropes.

Art Exhibit: Southern Gothic: Literary Intersection with Art from the Johnson Collection, Richardson Family Art Museum (upper level) (Arts and Cultural (On Campus))
Description:

From the haunting novels of William Faulkner to the gritty short stories of Flannery O'Connor, the Southern Gothic literary tradition has exhumed and examined the American South’s unique mystery, contradictions, and dark humor. Beginning in the mid-nineteenth century, American writers, epitomized by Edgar Allan Poe and Nathaniel Hawthorne, sought to reinterpret the Gothic imagination of their European counterparts, dramatizing the cultures and characters of a region in the midst of civil war and its tumultuous aftermath. Decades later, a new generation of authors—including Tennessee Williams, Carson McCullers, and Toni Morrison—wove Gothic elements into their own narratives, exploring the complexities of a changing social terrain and the ancient spirits that linger in its corners. 

With works drawn exclusively from the Johnson Collection, Southern Gothic illuminates how nineteenth- and twentieth-century artists employed a potent visual language to transcribe the tensions between the South’s idyllic aura and its historical realities. Often described as a mood or sensibility rather than a strict set of thematic or technical conventions, features of the Southern Gothic can include horror, romance, and the supernatural. While academic painters such as Charles Fraser and Thomas Noble conveyed the genre’s gloomy tonalities in their canvases, Aaron Douglas and Harry Hoffman grappled with the injustices of a modern world. Other artists, including Alexander Brook and Eugene Thomason, investigated prevailing stereotypes of rural Southerners—a trope often accentuated in Southern Gothic literature. Collectively, these images demonstrate that definitions of the Gothic are neither monolithic nor momentary, inviting us, instead to contemplate how the Southern Gothic legacy continues to inform our understanding of the American South.

Art as Transformation: Chapman Lecture by LaToya Ruby Frazier, Jerome Johnson Richardson Theatre (RSRCA) (Arts and Cultural (On Campus))
Description: This fall, Wofford welcomes visual artist LaToya Ruby Frazier to campus to deliver a Chapman Lecture in the Humanities. Frazier uses photography, video, and performance art to build visual archives that address industrialism, rustbelt revitalization, environmental justice, healthcare and gender inequality, racism, and family and communal history. 

In her talk, entitled "Art as Transformation: Using Photography for Social Change," Frazier will discuss how she has used photography to fight injustice. Drawing from her book The Notion of Family as well as from works of art by Frederick Douglass, August Sander, Julia Margaret Cameron, and Langston Hughes, she relates her conscious approach to photography, opens up more authentic ways to talk about family, inheritance, and place, and celebrates the inspirational, transformative power of images.

A TED Fellow and one of Ebony's 100 Most Powerful Women of All Time, Frazier has received the MacArthur Genius Fellowship and the John Simon Guggenheim Memorial Foundation Fellowship. Her work has been widely exhibited across the US and internationally, and her 2015 book The Notion of Family received the International Center for Photography Infinity Award.
