Richard Bell: Uz vs. Them

to 1367712000
IU Art Museum, 1133 E. 7th Street, 1st floor

Featuring paintings, installations, and videos by Australian artist and activist Richard Bell, this exhibition explores Aboriginal identity and its place in mainstream society. Uz vs. Them is at once powerful, confrontational, ironic, and beautiful, drawing on traditions ranging from Aboriginal desert painting to American Pop art. Though Bell speaks as an Australian Aboriginal, his work raises broader issues and concerns related to cultural and ethnic identity worldwide. The exhibition was organized by the American Federation of Arts.

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.
