Houston&rsquo;s development as a major American city provides the backdrop for the artist&rsquo;s significant output.&nbsp; It was a time of great optimism, energy and progress which met the needs of artists, cultural centers and the public, but also became a model of what social vitality could foster. The comradery and mutual appreciation for the art relationships that existed in this culturally progressive city continues to be tangible today. The support of the collecting base and the artwork that represents that dynamism is what constitutes this exhibition.</p> <p><em>Bayou City Chic</em>&nbsp;offers insight into the mood and creative output of the time between 1950 and 1980s. &nbsp;Nine of the artists included are represented in the AMST&rsquo;s permanent collection, and&nbsp;<em>Bayou City Chic</em>&nbsp;will offer a wider field to examine their contributions and the development of modernism in Texas. Artists who are in the exhibition and are also included in the AMST permanent collection include Dorothy Hood, John Biggers, Michael Frary, Lucas Johnson, Earl Staley and Dick Wray. As the museum anticipates their upcoming retrospective of Dorothy Hood,&nbsp;<em>The Color of Being/El Color del Ser</em>&nbsp;in the fall of 2016, taking a closer look into artists who worked during the same years in abstraction in the same city, reflects a palpable discourse that defines the energy and legacy of the time.&nbsp;<em>Bayou City Chic</em>&nbsp;will exhibit Hood alongside many other contemporaries and we see this dynamism of abstraction by multiple artists who worked during this &ldquo;watershed&rdquo; time period.</p> <p>On&nbsp;Saturday January 31 at 10:00am&nbsp;join us for a brunch and panel talk on&nbsp;<span style="text-decoration: underline;">Art and Commerce:&nbsp;</span>&nbsp;<span style="text-decoration: underline;">Perspectives on All Sides</span>, the artists, the gallery dealer and the collector. Artists on the panel are Richard Stout and Noe Perez and collector David Ellis as well as Bill Reaves owner of William Reaves Fine Art LLC who together with Deborah Fullerton, Curator for the art museum organized the exhibition. This art program is underwritten by CASETA, the Center for Study of Early Texas Art now based at the San Angelo Museum of Art whose mission parallels the museum&rsquo;s role in understanding the legacy and development of the art of Texas over time. &nbsp;The museum wishes to thank the collectors who loaned art, Bill Reaves, Sarah Foltz, and all the staff of William Reaves Fine Art for their dedication to these artists, and to the organization of this work for exhibition. The catalogue will be available in the museum store and William Reaves Fine Art.

The practical Swiss give high marks to functionality, tradition, superior engineering, and hands-on craftsmanship, qualities that are clearly reflected in Swiss products that are sought after around the world today. Commemorating the 150th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic relations between Japan and Switzerland, this exhibition traces Swiss design from the 19th through the 20th centuries and on to the present, showcasing uniquely Swiss contributions to the fields of product, graphic, architectural, and interior design.</p> Tue, 23 Dec 2014 12:08:17 +0000 http://www.artslant.com/ew/Events/list http://www.artslant.com/ew/Events/list Takabatake Yoriko - Tokyo Opera City Art Gallery - October 18th - December 23rd Tue, 23 Dec 2014 12:05:34 +0000 http://www.artslant.com/ew/Events/list http://www.artslant.com/ew/Events/list - Tokyo Opera City Art Gallery - October 18th - December 23rd Tue, 23 Dec 2014 12:05:30 +0000 http://www.artslant.com/ew/Events/list http://www.artslant.com/ew/Events/list Hamid Rahmanian - The Honolulu Museum of Art - April 2nd, 2015 - July 26th, 2015 <p style="text-align: justify;">During <em><a href="http://honolulumuseum.org/art/exhibitions/14810-shanameh_epic_persian_kings/During%20Doris%20Duke%E2%80%99s%20Shangri%20La,%20the%20Islamic%20art%20center%E2%80%99s%20residency%20program%20welcomes%20Iranian%20filmmaker%20and%20graphic%20designer%20Hamid%20Rahmanian.%20As%20part%20of%20the%20residency,%20the%20Honolulu%20Museum%20of%20Art%20is%20partnering%20with%20DDFIA%20to%20hold%20Shahnameh:%20The%20Epic%20of%20the%20Persian%20Kings,%20an%20exhibition%20of%20Rahmanian%E2%80%99s%20innovative%20illustrations%20of%20the%20Shahnameh,%20or%20Epic%20of%20the%20Persian%20Kings,%20one%20of%20the%20great%20classics%20of%20world%20literature.%20Consisting%20of%20some%2050,000%20verses,%20the%20Shahnameh%20was%20composed%20by%20the%20poet%20Ferdowsi%20in%20the%20late%2010th%20to%20early%2011th%20centuries,%20but%20its%20origins%20trace%20back%20much%20earlier,%20and%20it%20follows%20the%20history%20of%20the%20Persian%20empire%20from%20its%20mythical%20origins%20to%20the%20end%20of%20the%20Sassanian%20period%20in%20the%207th%20century.%20%20In%202013,%20after%20thousands%20of%20hours%20of%20work%20over%20more%20than%20five%20years,%20Rahmanian%20published%20a%20critically%20acclaimed%20newly%20illustrated%20edition%20of%20the%20Shahnameh,%20reviving%20once%20again%20its%20significance%20for%20a%20contemporary%20audience.%20Intended%20to%20make%20the%20epic%20accessible%20to%20a%20new%20generation%20of%20readers,%20the%20bold,%20dynamic%20illustrations%20seamlessly%20update%20the%20traditional%20aesthetics%20of%20historic%20Shahnameh%20imagery.%20Rahmanian%20brilliantly%20took%2015th-%20to%2019th-century%20Iranian,%20Mughal%20Indian,%20and%20Ottoman%20miniature%20paintings%20as%20his%20source%20material,%20transforming%20them%20through%20digital%20editing%20into%20an%20entirely%20novel%20way%20of%20illustrating%20the%20text.%20%20%20The%20exhibition%20is%20part%20of%20a%20larger%20series%20of%20events%20promoting%20arts%20and%20culture%20from%20the%20Islamic%20world,%20presented%20in%20conjunction%20with%20Doris%20Duke%E2%80%99s%20Shangri%20La:%20Architecture,%20Landscape%20and%20Islamic%20Art." target="_blank">Doris Duke&rsquo;s Shangri La: Architecture, Landscape, and Islamic Art</a>,</em> Shangri La The Center for Islamic Art&rsquo;s residency program welcomes Iranian filmmaker and graphic designer Hamid Rahmanian. As part of the residency, the Honolulu Museum of Art is partnering with the Doris Duke Foundation for Islamic Art to hold <em>Shahnameh: The Epic of the Persian Kings, </em>an exhibition of Rahmanian&rsquo;s innovative illustrations of the <em>Shahnameh,</em> or <em>Epic of the Persian Kings,</em> one of the great classics of world literature. Consisting of some 50,000 verses, the Shahnameh was composed by the poet Ferdowsi in the late 10th to early 11th centuries, but its origins trace back much earlier, and it follows the history of the Persian empire from its mythical origins to the end of the Sassanian period in the 7th century.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">In 2013, after thousands of hours of work over more than five years, Rahmanian published a critically acclaimed newly illustrated edition of the <em>Shahnameh,</em> reviving once again its significance for a contemporary audience. Intended to make the epic accessible to a new generation of readers, the bold, dynamic illustrations seamlessly update the traditional aesthetics of historic Shahnameh imagery. Rahmanian brilliantly took 15th- to 19th-century Iranian, Mughal Indian, and Ottoman miniature paintings as his source material, transforming them through digital editing into an entirely novel way of illustrating the text.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">The exhibition is part of a larger series of events promoting arts and culture from the Islamic world, presented in conjunction with <em>Doris Duke&rsquo;s Shangri La: Architecture, Landscape and Islamic Art</em>.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">Hear the <a href="http://www.npr.org/2013/08/25/214831942/heart-of-iranian-identity-reimagined-for-a-new-generation" target="_blank">NPR story 'Heart' of Iranian Identity Reimagined for a New Generation</a></p> <p class="headline" style="text-align: justify;">Read <a href="http://www.theatlantic.com/entertainment/archive/2013/03/shahnameh-re-imagined-a-colorful-new-vision-of-old-iranian-folklore/273783/" target="_blank"><em>The Atlantic</em> story <em>Shahnameh, Re-Imagined: A Colorful New Vision of Old Iranian Folklore</em></a></p> Tue, 23 Dec 2014 12:00:35 +0000 http://www.artslant.com/ew/Events/list http://www.artslant.com/ew/Events/list - The Honolulu Museum of Art - February 19th, 2015 - August 9th, 2015 <p style="text-align: justify;">The museum&rsquo;s collection of mats from islands throughout the Pacific highlights the region&rsquo;s skilled weaving traditions&mdash;<em>makaloa</em> from Hawai&rsquo;i, <em>i&rsquo;e toga</em> from Samoa, a <em>sese</em> mat from Vanuatu, <em>kabae</em> (male dance mat) from Kiribati, <em>jaki-ed</em> from the Marshall Islands, as well as examples from the rainforests of Borneo, Philippines and the Solomon Islands. Mats were often ornamented with patterned, abstract designs, or sometimes adorned with added fringes, feathers, or bits of yarn with distinctive ethnic and regional identifiers, respected and coveted as heirlooms and heritage mats.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">These mats&rsquo; common denominator is plaiting&mdash;they were worked by hand, without a loom and originally made only of natural fibers, such as pandanus <em>(pandanus tectorius)</em>, rattan <em>(calameae)</em>, and other sedge grasses, referred to as <em>makaloa (cyperus laevigatus) </em>in Hawai&lsquo;i. Informally, mats were used to create barriers, to insulate floors and walls, or for sleeping. Officially, they were used for receiving honored guests. Others may have been charged specifically for marking ceremonies and rituals, worn around the hips as body adornment, displayed as a sign of wealth, offered in gift exchanges, conveyed as economic currency, or presented in the investiture of chiefly titles.</p> Tue, 23 Dec 2014 11:56:52 +0000 http://www.artslant.com/ew/Events/list http://www.artslant.com/ew/Events/list Ayad Alkadhi, Zakariya Amataya, Afruz Amighi, Shezad Dawood, Emre H√ľner, Walid Raad, Shahzia Sikander, Mohamed Zakariya - The Honolulu Museum of Art - February 12th, 2015 - June 7th, 2015 <p style="text-align: justify;">This showcase of objects of Islamic art from the spectacular Honolulu home of philanthropist and art collector Doris Duke (1912-1993) also includes new works by eight contemporary artists of Islamic background, all of whom have participated in Shangri La&rsquo;s artist in residency program.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">The works from Duke&rsquo;s personal collection are being shown outside of Shangri La for the first time, in an exhibition that was organized on the centenary of her birth. After travelling nationally for two years, the show ends its journey in the objects&rsquo; &ldquo;home&rdquo;&mdash;Honolulu.

With the estate able to accommodate approximately 20,000 visitors a year, the exhibition <em>Doris Duke&rsquo;s Shangri La</em> is an extraordinary opportunity for thousands more to experience what guest curators Donald Albrecht and Tom Mellins call the &ldquo;inventive synthesis&rdquo; of architecture, landscape, and Islamic art that Duke achieved. In addition, the exhibition is a must-see even for those who have visited the Diamond Head property&mdash;most of the works in the show are not on view at Shangri La.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">The contemporary works in the exhibition are by Ayad Alkadhi, Zakariya Amataya, Afruz Amighi, Shezad Dawood, Emre H&uuml;ner, Walid Raad, Shahzia Sikander, and Mohamed Zakariya.</p> Tue, 23 Dec 2014 11:53:59 +0000 http://www.artslant.com/ew/Events/list http://www.artslant.com/ew/Events/list - The Honolulu Museum of Art - January 22nd, 2015 - May 24th, 2015 <p style="text-align: justify;">In the 19th century, the graphic arts&mdash;printmaking and drawing&mdash;diverged from their traditional illustrative function to become fertile ground for innovation and personal expression. Noting this trend, the influential poet and art critic Charles Baudelaire singled out printmaking as &ldquo;the sharpest possible translation of the character of the artist,&rdquo; and with this statement heralded an era of experimentation in etching, draftsmanship, and lithography.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">This exhibition traces the legacy of Baudelaire&rsquo;s observation through a selection of rarely exhibited fine prints and master drawings from the museum&rsquo;s collection. Etchings by Impressionist painters show how the numerous applications of this largely untested medium achieved unforeseen (and often astonishing) ends at the hands of artists famously concerned with the temporal and the fleeting, while Post-Impressionist and Neo-Impressionist lithographs &nbsp;demonstrate how planographic techniques proved particularly appealing to artists seeking sharp linearity and chromatic precision. Prints and drawings associated with Symbolism will reveal how the intimacy of the sketch and the printed page yielded intensely private images that suggest emotional, psychological, and even spiritual states; as residual traces of first thoughts and nascent ideas, these works paved the way for Modernism in the visual arts.</p> Tue, 23 Dec 2014 11:49:44 +0000 http://www.artslant.com/ew/Events/list http://www.artslant.com/ew/Events/list
