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.

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.

New in the Galleries: Breaking the Gilded Ceiling, Women Artists of the Nineteenth and Early Twentieth Centuries
March 5-August 25, 2013

This installation will feature women artists—some former artist’s models, some wives and mothers, and some trailblazers—who worked in a variety of media. Included will be work by photographers Anna Atkins, Julia Margaret Cameron, and Laura Adams Armer, as well as prints and drawings by Mary Cassatt, Suzanne Valadon, Gwen John, and Käthe Kollwitz. Presented in conjunction with IU 2013 Women’s History Month

Art Exhibit ‘Naked Spaces: Architecture in Art from the Kinsey Institute Collection’

01:30 pm to 05:00 pm
Indiana University, Kinsey Institute, Morrison Hall 3rd Floor
http://www.kinseyinstitute.org

Drawing on the Kinsey Institute’s permanent collections, Naked Spaces investigates the ways artists manipulate architectural representation to communicate ideas about sex, gender, and the erotic. Architectural form is used by artists working around the globe—and across time—as an invitation to view, but also as a plea for privacy; architectural space is used a framing device as well as screen. The diversity of artworks included in the exhibition creates an opportunity for viewers to consider the role played by the built environment in the construction of their own private and public identities.

The exhibition will include works by Toby Kaufmann, Andrey Avinoff, Michael Fingesten, Herbert Ascherman, Suzuki Harunobu, Clarence John Laughlin, Tom Bianchi, Clifford Raven Ingram, Max Kislinger, Rita Koehler, Emilio Sanchez, Edie Fake, Lehnert & Landrock, Arthur Tress, Félicien Rops, D. Keith Furon, Anne Roecklein, Ronald Searle, and Spencer Tunick.

Guest curator: S. N. Johnson-Roehr, Rutgers University.

Visiting hours are Monday thru Friday, 1:30 to 5 pm. Tours are available for 6 or more people. Call (812) 855-7686 for more information. Guides are provided when one is available.

Due to adult content, visitors should be 18 years of age or older, unless accompanied by a parent or guardian.
