Exhibit: Camille Jungman at gallery406

09:00 am to 06:00 pm
Wicks Building (downtown Square, 116 W. 6th St.)
http://www.spectrumstudioinc.com/gallery406.htm

gallery406, inside the Wicks Building on the downtown Square, presents an exhibition of Camille Jungman’s photography. Camille will show two separate but related portfolios of photographs: In the Spotlight and Floaters. Each set of prints depicts dreamlike, amorphous spaces in which two worlds collide: that of the familiar organic world of everyday objects that surrounds us and that of the cold slick advertising world of the mass media.

Gallery is open Monday – Friday, 9 am – 6 pm, and by appointment on Saturdays. Exhibit runs until March 29.

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:

“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.

“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.

“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.

“Unfinished Business: One Hundred Years of Quilt Blocks”
An exhibit presenting elements from unfinished quilts will be presented in conjunction with the Indiana Heritage Quilt Show.

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.

Exhibit: ‘Civil Rights in Monroe County’ at the Monroe County History Center

10:00 am to 04:00 pm
Monroe County History Center (202 E. 6th St.)
http://monroehistory.org/

This exhibit at the Monroe County History Center focuses on the Civil Rights Movement and Monroe County’s role in it.

The Civil Rights movements, from the early 1900s to the late 1980s, are an important part of Monroe County history. Indiana University served as a stage for students to make change and voice their rights as African Americans, women and young adults making sense of the world around them. The exhibit follows individuals who had a direct impact in making change in the community and on campus, and the major demonstrations happening at the time.

History Center is open Tuesday – Saturday, 10 am – 4 pm. Exhibit runs until April 27.

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 of World Cultures Lecture–Good Dopers, Evil Cyclists: Modernity and Our Love of Cheaters

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

Brian Gilley, Associate Professor of Anthropology, will discuss his research in the use of performance enhancing drugs in professional road cycling during a free public lecture at the Mathers Museum of World Cultures. Gilley notes how the public places the question of right or wrong in performance enhancing drug use on the morality of the athlete, but the unanswered question concerns the power of sporting institutions who inevitably benefit from doping, whether it is good or evil. Cyclists who dope, asserts Gilley, are merely the spokes from a hub of a global industry using its social and economic power.
