Logan Lecture: Ben Jackel

Colorado native Ben Jackel is storming the art world from Los Angeles with an arsenal of weapons that he’s made from clay and wood. The artist’s enormous halberd and an austere medieval helmet are on display at the DAM this spring on the fourth floor of the Hamilton Building. Warfare and weapons, as well as disaster relief equipment such as fire hoses and extinguishers, fascinate Jackel, both as aesthetic objects and because of the violence and fear they represent.

Logan Lecture: Robert Irwin

Robert Irwin pioneered the use of light as a primary medium. Associated with the Light and Space Movement, which developed in Southern California in the late 1960s, Irwin is today considered one of the most influential of those artists whose work is primarily about visual perception. Installations he calls “conditional” make viewers aware of their environment. His well-known projects include the 1997 Central Garden at the Getty Center, Los Angeles, and Scrim Veil—Black Rectangle—Natural Light (1977), reinstalled at the Whitney Museum of American Art in 2013. Construction begins this year for a large-scale permanent installation at the Chinati Foundation in Marfa, Texas.

Logan Lecture: Virgil Ortiz

Cochiti Pueblo native Virgil Ortiz is a contemporary ceramist, painter, designer of fashion and home interiors, and storyteller. The grandson and son of noted Pueblo potters, he grew up making ceramics in the Pueblo tradition, but his practice has expanded well beyond clay. Representations of Pueblo art and history dominate Ortiz’s work, which has been exhibited widely, from the National Museum of the American Indian to the Fondation Cartier in Paris. A subject that has particular meaning for him is the Pueblo Revolt of 1680. He says, “I want to pay tribute to our great leader Po’pay and ancestors that lived and walked on our lands, and respect that their spirit will live on through me.” An immersive exhibition, Revolt 1680/2180: Virgil Ortiz, featuring his figurative ceramics and design work, opens at the DAM on May 17, 2015.

 

This lecture is co-sponsored by the Douglas Society, a support group for the Native Arts Department.
