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.

“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.

“Treasures of the Mathers Museum”
Decades of collecting and curating will be featured in this exhibit, presented in conjunction with the institution’s 50th anniversary.

“Footsteps of a Stranger: Shoes from Cultures Around the World”
This exhibit expands our thinking about how shoes can reflect the values, ideals, and aesthetics of an era or culture. The exhibit features a diverse range of footwear, including bridal sandals from Pakistan, Tibetan boots, and Mexican dancing shoes. Runs through July, 26.

“Time As We Keep It”
This exhibit presents different facets of time including the evolution of the clock, the development of time zones, and contrasting cultural perspectives of time. Objects on display represent a range of time periods including a sun dial, a Monon station clock, as well as a pendulum clock. Runs through July, 26.

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: ‘Images from the Hood and Across the Tracks’ at gallery406

09:00 am to 05:00 pm
gallery406 (116 W. 6th St, Ste. 110)
http://www.spectrumstudioinc.com/gallery406.htm

Detroit might consider Georgia’s Old Car City to be a rusting graveyard filled with its finest designs. But the camera’s eye is able to capture an artist’s palette of line, form, color and texture as those 4,000 vehicles are silently transformed by the passage of time and the changing of the seasons. Join Bloomington photographers Kendall Reeves and James and Sue Haverstock in an exhibition of images from Old Car City that detail and explore the beauty resulting from the intersection of industry’s design and nature’s demands. Included in the show are photos from the Southeastern Railway Museum, a playground of rail cars and engines from the days when rail travel unified and serviced all of America. These high dynamic range images highlight in depth the forms and colors that transformed the utilitarian into the captivating. Images from the Hood and Across the Tracks is an exhibition that promises to capture form, color and texture in ways that will excite and inspire. Using a variety of modern camera techniques, these three photographers have produced images that coax beauty from age and decay, and exceptional art from the ordinary.

Exhibit runs until July 26. Gallery is open Monday – Friday, 9 am – 5 pm, and by appointment on Saturday.
