The Department of Art and Art History’s Hamilton Gallery is pleased to announce the opening of the group exhibition Suffrage and Struggle: Feminist Art and the 19th Amendment Centennial.

 

Suffrage and Struggle: Feminist Art and the 19th Amendment Centennial commemorates the centennial of women’s suffrage in the United States by marking the milestone of the 19th Amendment.  This exhibition aims to celebrate women’s empowerment and the changes that have occurred over the last century, while at the same time acknowledging that more work remains to be done to achieve equality in our society.  Regional in scope, this exhibition recognizes the outstanding creative accomplishments of visual artists working in the New England and New York area whose work explores the complex place of women in society.  We welcomed submissions from all people that broadly interpret this theme around any issues of gender and sexuality.

 

Jan Howard is the Chief Curator and Houghton P. Metcalf Jr. Curator of Prints, Drawings and Photographs at the RISD Museum.  Prior to coming to Rhode Island School of Design in 2000, she spent fourteen years as a curator in the Department of Prints, Drawings and Photographs at The Baltimore Museum of Art.  Her exhibitions and publications have primarily focused on modern and contemporary art, including Drawing Ambience: Alvin Boyarsky and the Architectural Association 2014; America in View: Landscape Photography 1865 to Now, 2012; Made in the UK: Contemporary Art from the Richard Brown Baker Collection, 2011; Pat Steir: Drawing Out of Line, 2010; Interior Drama: Aaron Siskind’s Photographs of the 1940s, 2003; Laurie Simmons: The Music of Regret, 1997; Roni Horn: Inner Geography, 1994.

 

The exhibition Suffrage and Struggle: Feminist Art and the 19th Amendment Centennial will run from March 5 through April 5, 2020.  On Thursday, March 5 the campus community and the general public are invited to attend a gallery reception for the artists.  This reception will run from 5:00 to 7:00 PM in the Dorrance H.

Jodie Mim Goodnough: Stronger and Weaker, More and Less

January 30 – February 26, 2020

Reception: January 30 from 5:00 to 7:00 PM                                          

 

The Department of Art and Art History’s Hamilton Gallery is pleased to announce the opening of Jodie Mim Goodnough: Stronger and Weaker, More and Less.

 

In her first one-person exhibition at Salve Regina University, Jodie Mim Goodnough presents an autobiographical collection of photographic and sculptural works that reflect on the death of her father and the impact of overwhelming loss.  The artist writes, “The loss of a parent changes you.  No matter how prepared you think you are, a part of you is irrevocably lost once one of the people who made you is gone from your life permanently.  It inspires thoughts of your own mortality, and changes the way you see the surviving parent.  Stripped of her “other half” by the passing of my father, my mother became someone new to me.  Simultaneously stronger and weaker, more and less than she had been before.  I became someone else as well – stronger and weaker, more and less.”

 

Jodie Mim Goodnough is a Providence, Rhode Island-based artist whose work investigates topics in psychology and psychiatry, and includes photography, sculpture, performance, video and sound.  She attended the Salt Institute for Documentary Studies in Portland, Maine and received her MFA from Tufts University in May 2013. Her work has been shown nationally in both solo and group exhibitions, including at the Midwest Center for Photography, the Newport Art Museum, and at Spring/Break Art Fair in New York City, and has been reviewed in publications such as Art New England and the Boston Globe. She is a recipient of a 2019 Pollock-Krasner Foundation grant and is currently Assistant Professor of Photography at Salve Regina University in Newport, RI.

 

The exhibition Jodie Mim Goodnough: Stronger and Weaker, More and Less will run from January 30 through February 26, 2020.  On Thursday, January 30 the campus community and the general public are invited to attend a gallery reception for the artist.  This reception will run from 5:00 to 7:00 PM in the Dorrance H. Hamilton Gallery.

 

The Dorrance H. Hamilton Gallery is located in the Antone Academic Center on the campus of Salve Regina University.  It is handicap accessible with parking along Lawrence and Leroy Avenues.  Its exhibits are open Tuesdays and Thursdays 11:00 to 6:00 p.m., Wednesdays and Fridays 11:00 to 5:00 p.m., and Saturdays and Sundays noon to 4:00 p.m.  The gallery is closed on Mondays.  We invite you to visit us.

MAY BABCOCK: HAMILTON GALLERY ARTIST-IN-RESIDENCE

Open Studio Reception: December 12, 2019 @ 5:00 PM                                       

 

The Dorrance H. Hamilton Gallery is pleased to host May Babcock, the Department of Art and Art History’s third artist-in-residence.

 

The Providence, Rhode Island-based interdisciplinary artist May Babcock will relocate her studio practice to the Hamilton Gallery for two weeks following the Thanksgiving holiday.  During this period, Ms. Babcock will share her creative process with the Salve community and incite new opportunities for learning and collaboration on campus.

 

Babcock’s studio techniques combine hand papermaking, printmaking, sculpture, historical photography process, and book-arts techniques, creating artwork that addresses place.  She teaches and exhibits widely, blogs about papermaking at www.paperslurry.com, serves on the Board of Directors for Hand Papermaking Magazine, and is piloting Pawtucket Paper Center, a community papermaking studio.

 

Since 2017, Babcock has collected seaweeds and pondweeds from Rhode Island waterways, embedding them in pulp during the wet hand papermaking process.  First an identification method while exploring invasive and indicator species, this ongoing exploration is now ‘Rhode Island Herbarium’, a series of over 100 works that have also inspired ‘Weathering’, a series that uses river and bay water to patina copper leaf on the seaweed papers.  You can see more of May Babcock’s artwork at www.maybabcock.com and @maybabcock on Instagram

 

May Babcock will be an Artist-in-Residence at Salve Regina University from December 3-17, 2019.  On Thursday, December 12 the campus community and the general public are invited to attend an open studio reception for the artist.  This reception will run from 5:00 to 7:00 PM in the Dorrance H.

PURPLE:  Fashion and Fancy affords the visitor a glimpse into fashion history spanning three centuries.  This exhibition presents twelve pieces on loan from the Texas Fashion Collection at the University of North Texas, a collection founded by the Dallas-based department store Neiman Marcus.  It includes a range of garments and accessories, from an 1890s mourning capelet to a 21st-century cocktail dress.  Evening dresses by well-known designers Victor Costa and Vera Wang, an Oscar de la Renta cocktail dress, a Fendi fur coat and a folkwear wedding dress are just a few of the highlights.  From sportswear to formal wear, from glamourous gowns to exuberant hats, this one of a kind exhibition features articles of clothing for different occasions and times of the year, highlighting the enduring resonance of purple in fashion.

 

This exhibition was made possible through a generous partnership with Annette Becker, the Director of the Texas Fashion Collection at the University of North Texas and the charitable support of an anonymous donor.  Ms. Becker curated the selection of designer pieces in collaboration with the show’s co-curators, Professors Ernest Jolicoeur and Anthony F. Mangieri of Salve Regina University’s Department of Art and Art History.  A full color catalog with essays accompanies this exhibition.

Traces: Zora Murff and Lorenzo Triburgo

TRACES: PHOTOGRAPHS BY

ZORA MURFF AND LORENZO TRIBURGO

Exhibition: February 28 to April 4, 2019

Opening: 5:00 to 7:00 p.m. on Thursday, February 28, 2019

The Dorrance H. Hamilton Gallery is pleased to announce the opening of Traces: Photographs by Zora Murff and Lorenzo Triburgo.  This exhibition was curated by Jodie Mim Goodnough, Assistant Professor of Photography at Salve Regina University.

How can photography talk about trauma and violence without re-inflicting that violence on its subjects? The two photographers in Traces, Zora Murff and Lorenzo Triburgo, find ways to use the power of the image to question assumptions about historically marginalized groups, using specificity and story to ask the viewer to look past what they think they know and to acknowledge violence both visible and invisible.

Photographed in the historically black neighborhood of North Omaha, Nebraska, Zora Murff’s At No Point In Between evaluates the fallout of prejudicial housing policies—known as “redlining”—that have affected the area and posits them as a form of slow violence. Murff challenges the photograph’s use as an objective document; addressing the convergence of the physical and social landscape; and reinterpreting complex narratives about race, power, and violence. Creating a collection of images scrutinized in both their historical and contemporary contexts, he metaphorically connects the body and the landscape, fast and slow violence. By intertwining witnessing and critical analysis, he provides a deeper understanding of systemic white supremacy and the resulting violence therein.

Policing Gender by Lorenzo Triburgo is an installation of photographs and audio. The photographs are abstract metaphors on absence and imprisonment and the audio is a compilation of voices of LGBTQ prisoners with whom Triburgo has been writing on a long-term basis. The title, “Policing Gender,” refers to the surveillance, policing, and punishment of LGBTQ bodies in the United States—a phenomenon most commonly visualized by the violent police raids of gay and lesbian bars in the 1950s and 60’s, but that started at least a century earlier and continues today. In the work, Triburgo employs visual connotations of landscape and portrait photography to cast a critical lens on notions of the “Natural” and the politics of queer representation, this time in service of prison abolition as a crucial queer issue.

Zora J Murff is a Visiting Assistant Professor of Photography at the University of Arkansas. Zora received his MFA in Studio Art from the University of Nebraska–Lincoln and holds a BS in Psychology from Iowa State University. His work has been exhibited nationally, internationally, and featured online including Aperture Magazine, The New Yorker, VICE Magazine, The British Journal of Photography, and The New York Times. In 2018, Zora was selected for the 2019 Light Work Artist-in-Residence Program, named the Daylight Photo Award Winner in 2017, and was also selected as a LensCulture 2017 Top 50 Emerging Talent with his collaborative partner Rana Young. Zora’s first monograph, Corrections, was published by Aint-Bad Editions in 2015 and his second monograph, LOST, Omaha, was published by Kris Graves Projects in 2018.

Lorenzo Triburgo holds a BA from New York University in Photography and Gender Studies and an MFA in Photography and Related Media from the School of Visual Arts. He lives and works in NYC and teaches art and gender studies online for Oregon State University and the School of Visual Arts. His work has been featured on Slate, Huffington Post, HuffPo-Live and the “The Transgender Studies Reader 2” published by Routledge. His artworks have been exhibited in major cities in the U.S., Europe, and Asia and are in the permanent collection of the Portland Art Museum. His project Transportraits won first place in the international Pride Photo Award based in The Netherlands and he was awarded the Portland Regional Arts and Culture Council Grant for his project Policing Gender, addressing mass incarceration from a queer perspective.

Jodie Mim Goodnough is the Assistant Professor of Photography at Salve Regina University. She currently serves as Northeast Chapter Chair for the Society for Photographic Education.

An opening reception for Traces: Photographs by Zora Murff and Lorenzo Triburgo is scheduled for February 28, 2019 from 5:00 to 7:00 p.m.  The evening will also feature a short artist talk by Lorenzo Triburgo at 5:30 p.m. The exhibition runs through April 4, 2019.
