AAA & CC Lecture Series presents: Worlds Within Ruins with Melissa Furness

Artist Melissa Furness will speak about her recent creative work and research in China as an artist in residence with RedGate Gallery and as an instructor of art with the International College of Beijing through the University of Colorado Denver and China Agricultural University. Furness’ studies have focused on historical sites throughout China with a look at transformed histories and Chinese Scholar Rocks. To Chinese artists, rocks are the basic building blocks of landscape painting. Furness’ work addresses these notions of the sublime landscape in contemporary terms, as well as object-oriented philosophy that maintains that objects exist independently of human perception. It is the “translations” and reinterpretations of the artifact through which Furness’ art work explores the life of the art object and the environments that they inhabit.

Barbarian Tropes Framed Anew by Tamara Bentley

Professor Bentley's talk examines three Chinese incised lacquer folding screens produced between 1665 and 1800. All three screens include segments depicting Europeans hunting exotic animals and parading with gifts; two screens specifically indicate that the Europeans are Dutch.  Analysis highlights the ways in which these Chinese screens borrowed foreigner  imagery from earlier Japanese Nanban screens, and also from earlier paintings of Mongols hunting, and those barbarian  constructs were even marketed back to Europe.

Friends of Native Arts September Lecture: Male Tewa Potters in 18th Century New Mexico

San Ildefonso male potters are largely considered an anomaly, a 20th century change that correlates with the modern market for Pueblo art pottery. But like much of the information we think we know about pottery this misconception of men not being potters previous to recent times relies on a constructed concept built from non-Pueblo logic and ideas about pottery manufacture, design, and division of labor. When we view pottery from a more Tewa perspective, male potters begin to emerge. Unfortunately, Pueblo pottery is saddled with false narratives that were constructed to sell pottery, help it conform to consumer culture's ideals of art, and impose Western art production and gender roles onto Tewa people.  

In my research I have become increasingly concerned that Tewa Pueblo pottery appreciation and scholarship is too much reliant on non-Pueblo logic and worldview.
This research began by applying this logic to an 18th century pottery style known as Ogapoge.  As I discussed this style with descendant community members, reexamined the pottery, and researched in archives, it became clear how wrong our imposed thinking about pottery is and the misconceptions it continues to place on pottery, its makers, and Native communities.  My presentation will illustrate some of the contributions of male potters from the mid-18th to early 20th century.  

Bruce Bernstein is a distinguished Native arts scholar, publishing broadly and curating over 100 exhibitions.  He currently serves as Executive Director of the Coe Center for the Arts, Santa Fe, and as the Pueblo of Pojoaque Historic Preservation Officer.  He previously has served as a director at the Smithsonian's National Museum of the American Indian, Museum of Indian Arts and Culture, and Santa Fe Indian Market. Bernstein s presentation is part of a book project and current research on behalf of and about Tewa pottery, 1600-1930.
