Asian Art Association Wed @ Noon: A Yatai by Any Other Name is a Dashi

Denver Sister Cities International former Committee Chair for the restoration of Denver’s Yatai, Kitty Comstock, will provide an informative talk about the history of Yatai/Dashi, and how one came to live in Sakura Square. Most commonly known in Japan as street food carts where the first sushi was sold in the 1700s, Yatai have evolved into festival floats, more usually now called Dashi, embodying great civic pride and expensive upkeep.

Asian Art Association Wed @ Noon: Plants in Chinese Art

China has a very large number of native plants but only a limited number of these plants appear in traditional Chinese art. The conventions for including plants in traditional Chinese art were very different from the conventions of traditional European art. The symbolism the viewer is expected to understand when viewing plants in Chinese art is not the same as that of the same plant in a European or American painting. In addition, an aide to dating art pieces emerges as more recent Chinese art uses more diverse plants. Examples will be drawn from the DAM’s collection by The Wandering Botanist, Kathleen Keeler.

6:00-7:30PM documentary screening/ Q & A in Sharp Auditorium

7:30-8:30PM light reception

Explore China’s past dynasties as it is revealed in two 18th century painted folding screens. Each was a major workshop commission, being painted with lacquer on lacquer, an extremely difficult artistic technique. As their stories are revealed in this premier viewing of a 45 minute educational documentary, the hidden messages and ancient techniques used to create these beautiful works of art are revived. It has taken a team of collectors, expert researchers, translators and historians working together for several years to uncover some of their mysteries. Presented by lacquer specialist and documentarian, Carla Stansifer, formerly of the Denver Art Museum, and Cassandra Lohr of China Art Search, LLC.

Matisse and Friends Member Preview

Matisse and Friends: Selected Masterworks from the National Gallery of Art showcases 14 paintings from the National Gallery of Art in Washington, D.C., by artists Henri Matisse, André Derain, Albert Marquet, Maurice de Vlaminck, Raoul Dufy, Georges Braque, and Kees Van Dongen.

 

These artists shocked the art world with their raw approach and triggered a succession of innovative movements in modern art. Working in and around Paris at the turn of the twentieth century, they were part of a creative community that sought to redefine painting, favoring an expressive style that emphasized loose brushwork and bold colors.

 

The exhibition's gallery setting draws inspiration from Matisse’s studio, employing vibrant walls, colorful rugs, and plush couches that encourage visitors to sit back and savor the details.

Asian Art Association Fri @ Noon: Bencharong: Royal Porcelain of Siam

There has until recently been little published in English or Thai about Bencharong, yet it was made in China in the 18th and early 19th centuries exclusively for Siamese royalty. In his presentation, Paul Bromberg will explore the history, production, usage and forms of this little-known, yet vibrant and colorful, export ceramic ware, drawing on examples from his own collection and the Ring Collection in Oslo, Norway, the largest repository of Bencharong outside Thailand which was the subject of a recent exhibition and accompanying catalog written by a team of twelve well-known international scholars.

Asian Art Association Wed @ Noon: Excavating Thailand: The Search for a Prehistoric Bronze Age

This lecture focuses on the remarkable evidence for early metal works excavated by Dr. Vincent Pigott, an anthropologist and archaeologist with a strong interest in the origins, transmission and societal impact of metallurgy across Eurasia. In Thailand, just north of Bangkok a pair of unique, prehistoric villages found by Dr. Pigott and his team together comprise one of the largest regional copper production centers known anywhere in eastern Asia. From where did this all-important technology come - India - China - or perhaps beyond?

Logan Lecture: Jack Balas

In beautifully rendered images, Jack Balas takes as his subject the idealized male figure. Balas questions why the male figure has largely been ignored in deference to the ubiquitous female subject. For example, in his essay “Where's the Beef? A Look For (And Lack of) The Male Erotic Image in Contemporary Art. Is the Term 'Homo-Erotic' Pejorative?” he advocates for gender balance in figurative art. In the artist’s photographs and paintings, statuesque male figures offer a counterpoint to the traditional sensuous female nude.
