2013 Exhibits at the Mathers Museum of World Cultures

09:00 am to 04:30 pm
Mathers Museum of World Cultures (416 N. Indiana Avenue)
http://www.mathers.indiana.edu

The Mathers Museum of World Cultures presents a new exhibit for the year 2013, “In The Kitchen Around The World”, which will be on display in addition to the already-installed exhibits from 2012. This exhibit will run until November 15, 2013.

“In The Kitchen Around The World”: an exhibit that presents objects used in preparing food and food service from different areas of the world. It breaks down into two categories: what the viewer perceives as familiar, such as plates, cups, and dishes, and what is unfamiliar, such as a Peruvian corn toaster and an Ecuadorian grater. The goal of the exhibit is to look at what other cultures have come up with as solutions to help them in cooking or eating food, allowing the viewer to make comparisons to the solutions that are similar or dissimilar to their own.

Other exhibits include:

“Rhythms of the World”: a free audioguide tour of musical instruments from around the globe featured in exhibits throughout the museum. The audioguide includes narration and musical clips of the highlighted instruments.

“Living Heritage: Performing Arts of Southeast Asia”
This exhibit highlights some of the performing arts in Southeast Asia, including artifacts of the manohra dance (from Thailand), Sudanese puppet theater from Indonesia, and folk music from Vietnam.

“TOYing with Ideas”
Toying with Ideas examines toys across cultures, as well as throughout decades of American history, to analyze and question how toys have come to influence social roles, gender roles, and early childhood identity.

“The Day in Its Color: A Hoosier Photographer’s Journey”
This exhibit presents a survey of Charles Cushman’s extraordinary work, an archive of photographs that is the largest known body of early color photographs by a single photographer, 14,500 in all, most shot on vivid, color-saturated Kodachrome stock. From 1938-1968, Cushman—a sometime businessman and amateur photographer with an uncanny eye for everyday detail—travelled constantly, shooting everything he encountered as he ventured from New York to New Orleans, Chicago to San Francisco, and everywhere in between. His photos include portraits, ethnographic studies, agricultural and industrial landscapes, movie sets and media events, children playing, laborers working, and thousands of street scenes, all precisely documented in time and place. The result is a chronicle of an era almost never seen, or even envisioned, in color.

“Picturing Archaeology”
Described in their words and illustrated by their images, the research and fieldwork of 13 Indiana University archaeologists is presented in Picturing Archaeology at the Mathers Museum of World Cultures/Glenn Black Laboratory of Archaeology.

“Thoughts, Things, and Theories…What Is Culture?”
Thoughts, Things, and Theories…What Is Culture? examines the nature of culture through the exploration of cultural traditions surrounding life stages and universal needs.

“From the Big Bang to the World Wide Web: The Origins of Everything”
This exhibit examines history on a large scale, through the exploration of cosmic, biological, and human origins.

Museum is open Tuesdays through Fridays, from 9 am to 4:30 pm, and Saturdays and Sundays, from 1 to 4:30 pm. Check website to see all of the Mathers Museum’s exhibits.

Exhibits at the Indiana University Art Museum

10:00 am to 05:00 pm
IU Art Museum (IU Campus, 1133 E. 7th St.)
http://www.artmuseum.iu.edu/iuam_home.php

Several new exhibits can be seen at the Indiana University Art Museum. The galleries are open Tuesday – Saturday, 10 am – 5 pm, and Sunday, 12 pm to 5 pm.

Paul Strand’s “Street People”
Continuing through May 5, 2013

Paul Strand’s revolutionary photographs, published in the final double-issue of Alfred Stieglitz’s Camera Work, shocked the art world not only with their unadulterated approach to the medium, but also with their gritty, realistic subject matter. This installation features three close-up portraits of some of the “invisible” beggars, hackers, and passersby found on New York City’s sidewalks.

“The Many Faces of a Master”
Continuing through May 5, 2013

Pablo Picasso (1888–1975) was not only one of the greatest artists of the twentieth century, but he was also one of the most recognizable. The IU Art Museum has a large collection of portraits of artists. This installation features several photographs of Picasso at work or play by Lucien Clerque, Robert Capa, and Brassaï.

Contemporary Explorations: Reviewing Nature in the 1980s
February 4‒May 19, 2013

Drawn from the museum’s collection of works by graduates of IU’s fine arts department (now the Hope School of Fine Arts), this installation examines the artists’ interpretations of the natural world. Reviewing Nature takes a look at the balance sought between structural composition and the role nature plays in co-defining the space we both share. This installation was organized by Emily Wood, graduate assistant for Western art after 1800 at the IU Art Museum.

Mathers Museum Lecture—’A Snapshot of Happiness: Photography, Religious Mediation, and Economic Uncertainty in Muslim Senegal’

12:00 pm to 01:00 pm
Mathers Museum of World Cultures, 416 N Indiana Ave
http://www.mathers.indiana.edu

Popular photography in cities across the African continent favors multiple exposures, cutwork, and photomontage. In Dakar, photographers taking family pictures incorporate these elements and also draw on Muslim Sufi visual practices emphasizing repetition and montage. Photographers manipulate prints to create collages and multiple exposures of a single subject, or a subject posing with his/her twin, co-wife, children, deceased parents, and religious figures. Buggenhagen focuses on the production and circulation of photographs by Muslim women to understand how one makes a life for oneself at a time of global fiscal uncertainty. The lecture will be given by Beth Buggenhagen, Faculty Curator and Assistant Professor of Anthropology, and will be free and open to the public.
