Anderman Photography Lecture: Lalla Essaydi

Drawing from her perspective and experience growing up in Morocco and now living in the United States, Lalla Essaydi creates photographs of women that express the richness and complexity of identity.  Essaydi utilizes materials such as henna, calligraphy, textiles, bullets, and architectural spaces to adorn/veil the bodies as well as create the environment that surrounds the women in these performative photographs. Her work disrupts traditional gender roles of Islamic culture and challenges cultural misconceptions. Lalla Essaydi explains, "In my art, I wish to present myself through multiple lenses -- as artist, as Moroccan, as traditionalist, as Liberal, as Muslim.  In short, I invite viewers to resist stereotypes."

The Anderman Photography Lecture Series presents talks by the preeminent creators and thinkers in photography today. Sponsored by the DAM Photography Department. Series funding is generously provided by Evan and Elizabeth Anderman.

Exclusive Screening at the 42nd Denver Film Festival

The Denver Film Festival returns for its 42nd season and CultureHaus friends have been invited to an exclusive screening!

Join Out & About for an exclusive screening of Best Before Death, a documentary following artist Bill Drummond (formerly of pop group The KLF) in his years-long World Tour. Drummond, mostly ignored by the art world, sees the tour as a race against his own mortality, as well as an exploration of what art is and is not. It's a film about life, death, art, money, music and cake. And some knitting.

BUT WAIT, THERE'S MORE!

It's not a real Out & About event without an awesome after party!
Join us after the screening for an exclusive VR experience at the Festival Annex @ the McNichols Civic Center Building, featuring whiskey tastings, immersive theater experiences, VR madness, and a few delightful surprises.

Impressionist Cats and Dogs

Many Impressionist paintings of modern life include household pets. They not only add charm to many pictures, their growing presence as family members alludes to middle-class leisure and prosperity. It is not unusual to discover that these often unnoticed domestic denizens complement representations of their owners, alluding to their lives in various ways. In some special cases, the devotion of certain artists to their pets reveals aspects of their aims and artistic identity, as well. I guarantee that after this presentation, you will never overlook a painted pet again.

 

Tickets are limited by membership level.

Monet as a Draftsman: Between Drawing and Pictorial Invention

The reproduction of fleeting natural impressions played a central role in the art of Claude Monet (1840-1926). Like no other Impressionist, he explored the topography and the specific lighting moods of different locations, from the metropolis of Paris to the remote Seine villages of Vétheuil and Giverny. This symposium explores the evolution of Monet's art from the 1850s to the 1920s with a focus on the places - both at home and on the road - from which he drew inspiration for his painting.

 

Tickets are limited by membership level.

Paint like Zombies with Colorado Artist William Stoher

Come get in the Halloween spirit with CultureHaus and paint like zombies! Join us Saturday, October 26th in Boulder for an intimate studio tour and hands-on painting collaboration with internationally recognized artist William Stoehr. (Halloween treats, both boozy and non, will be provided of course).

After 40 years mapping the world, ultimately for National Geographic, William Stoehr retired to become a full time artist. Stoehr describes his method as painting "like a zombie". Working freely, Stoehr pours, drips, brushes, scrubs and scrapes paint on his canvases to create portraits that are both unique and eye-catching.

Much of his work focuses on the human condition and he uses live models to create his portraits. He explores intolerance, discrimination, addiction, violence and war with its victims, witnesses and survivors. The artist focuses on exploiting the shared gaze, "we are drawn to eyes. I want you to feel like my subjects are staring into your soul". He often paints facial features slightly out of alignment or vaguely different expressions for each side of the face. These variations might make his images come to life as memories, and prior experiences affect your perception. It is this shared gaze and uncertain context that provoke the viewer into creating a narrative. "If I create ambiguity with abstraction and a few naturalistic cues then maybe you create reality. That is because you complete the image, you create the narrative, and you project your own emotions. You will do a better job with your own perfect mental image than I can. The message is your message to create."

Stoehr's work is exhibited here in Denver at Space Gallery as well as internationally at universities, art centers, museums and galleries including a recent exhibit in London and an upcoming exhibition in Kuwait. See his work at www.williamstoehrart.com and follow him on instagram at @wlstoehr.

 

This event will take place in central Boulder, Colorado (exact address will be sent to RSVP guests prior to the event).
