April 2 from 5:00 PM to 7:00PM
Join us for the opening reception of the Schneider Museum of Art’s Spring Exhibitions! Refreshments and wine will be served during the reception.
In the front gallery will be prints by Corita Kent who is best known for her dual roles as nun and contemporary artist. Kent is remembered for her serigraphs that borrowed phrases and images from the Bible, literature, song lyrics, and popular culture to translate her messages of peace and love in an era of social conflict and chaos during the 1960s and 70s. The artists, Garrick Imatani and Marlene Alt, will be installing new works produced for the Southern Oregon Site Project. This project, funded in part by The Ford Family Foundation, Roseburg, is designed to support and present new art made in response to the “site” of the landscape, history and culture of the Rogue Valley. Sang-ah Choi’s show entitled Humming in the Ubiquitous Beauty will include dynamic paintings, ceramic objects and an artist’s book.
Physical Education Workshop and Performance
Workshop: Saturday, May 9 at 12 Noon
Performance: Sunday, May 10 at 8:00 PM
While the spring exhibitions are on view, the Schneider Museum of Art will present a workshop and a performance piece by the Portland-based Physical Education (PE), comprised of dance and performance artists keyon gaskin, Allie Hankins, Lucy Lee Yim and Takahiro Yamamoto. Physical Education’s performance on Sunday May 10 at 8:00 PM will take place in, and collaborate with, Garrick Imatani’s Southern Oregon Site Project installation. The goal of the Movement workshop with PE, to be held Saturday, May 9 at 12:00 PM, is to inspire a critical dialogue that acknowledges and scrutinizes the perceived illegibility and messiness of the performing body. PE’s vision is to offer performance audiences, artists of all mediums, and curious individuals immersive modes through which to engage with dance and performance.
Portland based Physical Education(PE) works to inspire a critical dialogue that acknowledges and scrutinizes the perceived illegibility and messiness of the performing body. PE offers immersive modes of engagement with dance and performance, including READING GROUPS, LECTURES, curated PERFORMANCES, AEROBICS classes, and straight-up sweat-it-out DANCE PARTIES. All events are open to individuals of varying mediums or artistic practices (INCLUDING NO ARTISTIC PRACTICE), in an effort to deepen their consideration of performance and their sense of embodiment.
