Event Image Exhibition | Figure and Form: African Ceramics from the Keith Achepohl Collection | Nov 5 - Jan 29
10:00 AM - 5:00 PM

*WU Campus - Hallie Ford Museum of Art

Organized by director John Olbrantz, the exhibition features 17 ceramic vessels from the collection of Keith Achepohl and examines how African potters - who are primarily women - have created unique and innovative ceramic vessels for domestic and ritual use. Made by hand and often fired in the open, these vessels embody an immediacy of form and a deceptive simplicity that reflect a deep understanding of material, process, and embellishment.

The Hallie Ford Museum of Art is pleased to present a major retrospective exhibition for Louis Bunce (1907-1983), a legendary Portland painter, printmaker, and teacher who taught at the Museum Art School from 1946 to 1972 and who influenced several generations of Oregon artists.

Event Image Exhibition | Louis Bunce: Works on Paper | Nov 5 - Jan 29
10:00 AM - 5:00 PM

*WU Campus - Hallie Ford Museum of Art

Louis Bunce was a rising star in American art of the 1940s and 1950s, and his silkscreen prints from this time helped transform what had been a means for mass production advertising into a medium for limited edition fine art printmaking. Organized by professor emeritus and senior faculty curator Roger Hull, the exhibition will feature a range of prints and works on paper from public and private collections that highlight Bunce's accomplishments as a printmaker and is timed to overlap with a major retrospective of Bunce's work which will open in January.

Event Image Emmett’s Life Matters: Enthymeme, Presence, and Magnitude in Black Lives Matter Discourse
3:00 PM - 4:00 PM

*WU Campus - Hatfield Library

Maegan Parker Brooks, Assistant Professor, Civic Communications and Media, will speak about her recent research. The name, the face, and the story of Emmett Till, the black teenager who was lynched in 1955 for allegedly whistling at a white woman, are reemerging in America’s collective consciousness. This presentation will consider how the figure of Till figures within contemporary verbal and visual media. I will examine popular newspaper and magazine articles, as well as widely-circulated memes, explicating their implicit social knowledge premises in relation to three audience groups. For contemporary activists, establishing connections between Till, the mid-twentieth century Black Freedom Movement, and America’s current racial climate offers direction to a nascent movement. For experientially external yet sympathetic audiences, evoking the Till tragedy provides form and substance to the abstract condition of mourning endured by blacks in America. For those external and previously disinterested audiences, memes visually linking Till to the contemporary deaths of unarmed black youth create dialectical tensions which hold the affective capacity to stimulate an acknowledgment of how post-racial inaction perpetuates entrenched patterns of injustice.
