Event Image Exhibition | Anne Hirondelle: Small Revolutions | Feb. 11 - April 30, 2017
10:00 AM - 5:00 PM

*WU Campus - Hallie Ford Museum of Art

The Hallie Ford Museum of Art is pleased to feature the ceramic work and drawings of nationally recognized Port Townsend, Washington artist Anne Hirondelle (née Harvey). “Anne Hirondelle: Small Revolutions” opens February 11 in the Study Gallery and Print Study Center and continues through April 30, 2017.

John Olbrantz, the Maribeth Collins Director says, “Throughout her long and prolific career, Hirondelle has pushed the boundaries of the ceramic medium, making functional vessels and abstract sculptures that are warmly alive and visually engaging. This exhibition explores a period of time during the past six to eight years where her work evolved into an intriguing exploration of abstract vessels where function gives way to sculptural possibilities.”

Event Image Teppola Distinguished Visiting Professor Govindan Parayil will present:
4:15 PM - 5:30 PM

*WU Campus - Hatfield Library

The Return of the “Machinery Question” and the Failed Promise of Globalization The political economists and social critics of 19th century theorized "the machinery question": the rage against machines by unemployed former artisans and alienated workers after the onset of modern capitalism. Two centuries later, rage against the “march of the machine” has returned. Whereas the Luddites in the 19th century English mills attacked machines as tangible instruments of their oppression, information-age revolts rage against the post-Cold War global political and economic order. There is great anxiety and fear among the public that the new economy being shaped by the twin forces of globalization and technological innovation (global production networks, part-time and contingent work, machine learning, computerization, mobile robotics, et cetera) is leading us into an economic future in which most work will be done by machines, a dystopia worse than the one Charlie Chaplin portrayed in the “Modern Times,” an economic marketplace where humans need not apply. In Bill Joy's words, we fear a future “that doesn’t need us.” In this talk, I will investigate whether it is possible to have a fair economic future in the face of gross asymmetries in social relations, political power, and economic opportunities for the marginalized and excluded majority, as several major technological advances revolutionize the world's political economy.
