In Your Way - Kate Gilmore

January 10 - February 20, 2019

Gilmore’s work incorporates performance, video, sculpture, and painting. “In Your Way” features ten works—nine performance-based videos and one live performance/sculptural installation that invites audience participation. Gilmore’s videos focus on herself or several women, wearing stereotypical feminine clothing and footwear while persistently performing difficult, labor-intensive tasks within self-constructed spaces.

In her videos, Gilmore critiques and also inserts herself into male dominated movements such as Abstract Expressionism and Minimalism, exploring feminist themes and modern and contemporary art tropes, all the while exhibiting relentless determination. The spilling and splattering from her work are an ode to Abstract Expressionism or 1950s stripe paintings.

Her works are mischievous and political, as well as humorous and critical of the heroic language and absence of women in these artistic movements. The physical situations and actions Gilmore creates for herself and her performers are metaphors for challenges women face culturally and socially.

AIR Biennial 2016

January 14 - February 18, 2016
Molly Zuckerman-Hartung, Caitlin Keogh, Dominic Terlizzi, and Aliza Nisenbaum

The presence of acclaimed artists—who have lived and worked in major cultural centers across the country—enhances the educational opportunities for both undergraduate and graduate students enrolled in the University of Tennessee School of Art. With daily contact over the course of a full semester, resident artists develop a unique relationship with the student body which complements the creative stimulation offered by guest lecturers and the School of Art's faculty. Representing diverse ethnic, cultural, educational, and professional backgrounds, these resident artists introduce another layer of candor and a fresh artistic standard for the students who, though early in their formal art studies, are beginning to develop their own perceptions, skills, and theories in connection with the making of art.

With his London-based design think tank, Tomorrow’s Thoughts Today, he explores the future implications of emerging urban developments. Named by Blueprint magazine as one of 25 people who will change architecture and design, Young uses fiction and film to discuss probable futures.

The Lure of Maine

November 7 - December 11, 2016

Walter Hollis (Holly) Stevens arrived at UT in the fall of 1957. He was soon introduced to the work of his new Art Department colleague, Carl Sublett who was having a solo exhibition in UT’s Audigier Gallery. Sublett had arrived at UT only 2 years earlier at the request of the department’s founder Kermit Ewing to assist him with painting classes. From the newly formed friendship between Sublett and Stevens, sprang a strong professional bond that they shared for the remainder of their lives.

They enjoyed plein air painting and often traveled together to locations around Knoxville. In their own studio practice, they shared a workaholic attitude towards art production. As artists, they shared an intense studio commitment to painting and drawing.

They both, also, spent summers in Maine. Sublett’s wife Helen was a native of Maine. Her maternal grandparents were farmers on Deer Isle and her paternal grandparents were lobster fishermen in Port Clyde. Helen was born in Port Clyde and inherited her family’s home there. Carl and Helen spent every summer there. Steven’s family had purchased an old farmstead on Deer Isle in 1958. This also became a summer retreat for the Walter and his family. Both of the artists looked forward to visiting their summer homes where they were invigorated and inspired by Maine’s sensory filled environment.

Deer Isle is located on the eastern tip of Penobscot Bay while Port Clyde is on the bay’s western tip. Although across the bay from each other, a 2-hour drive by car separates the two towns. Therefore, Sublett and Stevens spent more time together in Knoxville than in Maine. However, they looked forward to sharing their summer work with each other on their return to Knoxville. They both continued the annual routine of spending the academic year in Knoxville and the summer in Maine until Stevens’ death on Deer Isle in 1980 and until Sublet’s retirement in 1982. After retirement, Sublett continued this annual travel routine until he and Helen permanently relocated to Maine in 2001. Sublett continued to paint there until his death in 2008.

The View Out His Window [and in his mind's eye]

November 7 - December 12, 2016

Jeffery Becton is a photographer and image-maker who lives on Deer Isle, a rocky and forested island off the coast of Maine. Becton makes work, in part, about his surroundings. The extraordinary sweeping coastal views that are such a part of daily life when one lives by the sea are often incorporated into his images. Equally critical is internal life, both the space inside the home (and the comfort and protection it provides from northern New England’s inclement weather), and the introspective and contemplative space that enlivens one’s imagination, which is no doubt encouraged in this stunning and remote location.


Compound Lens

January 11 - February 8, 2015

RVTR: infra_eco_logi_urbanism

October 3 - 31, 2015

This exhibition posits an approach and a vision for architecture at the urban scale within the contemporary post-metropolitan condition. The project assembles a multi-year investigation that examines extant and emerging urban systems within the Great Lakes Megaregion, and develops a speculative design proposition to leverage energy and mobility infrastructures toward new urban futures.

Distilled: The Narrative Transformed

November 11 - December 13, 2015

Inspired by place and process, Herbert's work is a spirited exploration in color and line derived from the sights, sounds, and energies of the two principal cities – Memphis and New York – in which this body of work was created. Graffiti-like gestures scrawl atop digital prints, which are collaged and integrated into his paintings. In this 30-year survey, we follow Pinkney Herbert on his transformative journey from the narrative into abstraction.

Four x Four
July 1 – July 27, 2012

Media and subject matter were not stipulated at the outset of this exhibition. The pieces on display, therefore, represent an honest “work sample” from a talented segment of the UT community whose artistic skills might otherwise remain unrecognized outside of their duties as staff members. The exhibitors are: Mike C. Berry, UT Downtown Gallery manager; Jessie Van der Laan, UT Print Shop Tech; and Sarah McFalls and Jennifer Stoneking -Stewart, Ewing Gallery staff.

These four artists currently create work that represents a distortion of the natural landscape and addresses the relationship we often have with the idea of “place.”

Mike Wsol – Limited Vision
Confabulatores Nocturni
August 20 – September 10, 2012

CONFABULATORES NOCTURNI
theoretical design project . exhibited
somewhere between sunset and sunrise

From these two incontrovertible premises he deduced that the Library is total and that its shelves register all the possible combinations of the twenty-odd orthographical symbols – a number which, though extremely vast, is not infinite.
– Excerpt from “The Library of Babel” by Jorge Luis Borges
Ce8, Cg7, Ch5, Cf6, Ce4, Ch1 | The CABANON exists somewhere between sunset and sunrise. They are fictions that draw their primary motivation from Diderot and d’Alembert’s Encyclopédie. The visual equivalent to the Library of Borges, the Encyclopédie serves as a visual taxonomy of all human knowledge catalogued under the three primary branches of memory, reason, and imagination – past, present, and future. Is it possible that the volumes of the Encyclopédie possess all of our collective spatial fictions? Through the narrative morphosis of collage, each CABANON acquires the personality of a scribe. New fictions surface. Arranged in a columbarium-like wall, the communicative structure between these scribes emerges as a contemplation of the enigmatic Knight’s Tour. This ancient and cryptic geometry becomes at times a thanatopsis, at times a colloquy between divines.

Pencil Pushed
September 17 – October 28, 2012
curated by Creighton Michael

In this exhibition, the word pencil functions simply as a metaphor or symbol for drawing and its activity. The artists selected are known for their drawing or drawing activity as their primary means of expression and have either pushed the material, process, or boundary of conventional drawing. Media included video, sculpture, animation, installation, and of course, works on paper. This exhibition is neither a survey nor the definitive grouping of mark-making artists. It is more a conversation about artists who have and continue to explore these regions in drawing. The diversity of the exhibition favored mid-career artists, but ranged from emerging to late.

Featured artists in Pencil Pushed are: William Anastasi, William Pittman Andrews, Caroline Burton, Elisa D’Arrigo, Mary Reid Kelley, Sharon Louden, Jennifer Macdonald, Peter Mollenkof, Darcy Brennan Poor, Bill Richards, Beatrice Riese, Hilda Shen, Drew Shiflett, Stephen Talasnik, and Sam Vernon.

Janusz Kapusta: Rhapsody in K-dron
November 1 – 15, 2012

 Discovered by Polish artist, Janusz Kapusta in 1985 and patented in 1987, the name K-Dron originates from K, the 11th letter of the alphabet, and GK-EDRON, the Greek word for surface. Being both a remarkably simple and complex structure, its basic form has a square base, 11 multifaceted sides and a diamond-shaped face with a 45-degree angle of inclination. Janusz Kapusta has developed K-Dron’s versatility to invent the K-Dron game in which 8 K-Drons of two colors (black and white) can be manipulated to produce patterns of up to 38,416 possible combinations. The exhibition is made possible through the generous support of the Marek Maria Pienkowski Foundation.

Quadrivium
November 18 – December 16, 2012

Quadrivium is Latin for “the four ways” or “the place where four roads meet” and was used during the Renaissance Period to describe the four subjects — arithmetic, geometry, music, and astronomy — that were taught after teaching the trivium.

For this exhibition, we are using Quadrivium to describe Knoxville and the School of Art as the place where artistic roads and artists have met.

Quadrivium features the work of the four most recent additions to the faculty of the School of Art. We are pleased to exhibit work by Joshua Bienko, drawing; Evan Meaney, transmedia design; Althea Murphy-Price, printmaking; and Karla Wozniak, painting.

Sanford Wurmfeld: Immersed in Color
September 11 – October 27, 2011

Sanford Wurmfeld has always concentrated his artistic interest on the experience of color. Seeing the Panorama Mesdag in 1981 in The Hague, Netherlands, inspired Wurmfeld to create a non-representational 360-degree painting, an idea for a work seemingly no one else had accomplished at that time. By 1989 he completed a 1/5-scale model for what would eventually become Cyclorama 2000, a circular structured painting in the round based on the color circle at full saturation. This work was commissioned and later purchased by the Karl Ernst Osthaus Museum in Hagen, Germany, under the leadership of the former director, Michael Fehr. By 2006, Wurmfeld was making plans for the E-Cyclorama.  The E-Cyclorama debuted at the Edinburgh College of Art during the Edinburgh Festival from July-September 2008. It later appeared at a second venue, The Neuberger Museum, SUNY Purchase, May-July 2009. The Cyclorama 2000 and the E-Cyclorama are the only two known non-representational 360-degree paintings.
