The Riverside Art Museum (RAM) is pleased to present Spotlight: Visual Arts Across the Generations in the Riverside Unified School District.

\n

E.W. Eisner wrote in Ten Lessons the Arts Teach (1998) tha t\, &ldquo\;a &lsquo\;work of art&rsquo\; is both an activity and a result\ ; it is a noun and a verb&hellip\;. One of the great aims of education is t o make it possible for people to be engaged in the process of creating them selves. Artists and scientists are alike in this respect.&rdquo\; The impac t that arts education has on academic performance\, social development\, an d community engagement is often underestimated and undervalued just because it is difficult to measure. Americans for the Arts\, the nation&rsquo\;s l eading nonprofit for advancing the arts and arts education\, has stated tim e and again that\, &ldquo\;arts education should not be considered a frill\ , but a necessity.&rdquo\;

\n

&ldquo\;We appreciate the on-going collaboration with the Riverside Art Museum and th is special opportunity to showcase our students&rsquo\; and faculty&rsquo\; s artwork\,&rdquo\; says Antonio Garcia\, Riverside Unified School District &rsquo\;s Assistant Superintendent of Curriculum and Instruction. &ldquo\;T his exhibit reflects the value we place on arts education\, both as a schoo l district and as the larger Riverside community.&rdquo\;

\n

&ldquo\;Many RUSD graduates have gone on to exhibit\, teach\, and work at RAM\,&rdquo\; says Drew Oberjuerge\, Executive Director . &ldquo\;This exhibition presents exceptional student\, teacher\, and facu lty artwork. As creativity and analytical thinking - things that are develo ped through arts education - become important facets of the 21st century wo rk force\, the RUSD and RAM are working together to encourage artist develo pment.&rdquo\;

\n

The Riverside Unified School District (RUSD)\, founded in 1871\, provides pre-Kindergarten to adu lt education to students within the City of Riverside and some surrounding unincorporated communities. Art education has been an important priority fo r the RUSD for many years. Children as young as pre-Kindergarten students a re exposed to a wide range of arts programs: instrumental and vocal music\; dance\; theater\; the visual arts of painting\, drawing\, and sculpture\; and more. Students with an interest in the arts are encouraged to enhance t heir skills with a variety of advanced coursework.

In many people's experience\, California consists of Los Angeles\, San Francisco\, Sacramento\, and the h ighways that connect them. In reality these urban centers make up only a fr action of the whole\; according to the 2010 Census\, geographically the sta te of California is more than 94 percent rural. Surprise Valley\, Lost Hill s\, Raisin City\, Mecca&mdash\;these are the communities that make up "the rest" of California.

\n

Writer and photo grapher Lisa M. Hamilton has been telling the stories of these rural commun ities in her multimedia work \;Real Rural. For this exhibition \, she has delved into the collections of the California Historical Society to connect these present-day stories with the past. Featuring roughly 75 ph otographs\, \;I See Beauty in This Life \;is a combination of large-scale color prints by Hamilton and her selections from the Califo rnia Historical Society's vast photography collections&mdash\;material dati ng from the 1880s through the mid-twentieth century\, much of which has nev er been exhibited before. Led through CHS's vast collection of historic pho tographs by the Director of Library &\; Archives Mary Morganti\, Hamilto n has selected images that are not predictable views of pastoral windmills or heroic mule teams\, but rather images that reflect her own keen interest in revealing the unexpected. Her approach to the Historical Society's coll ections is different from that of a historian in that her first priority wa s to choose images that are outstanding for aesthetic reasons. Taken by ama teur and mostly unknown photographers\, the photographs are remarkable for their beauty and unusual perspective. These press prints\, snapshots\, and publicity stills are also intimate records of struggle\, celebration\, comm unity\, and the endless work required to wrest a livelihood from the land. Together\, they tell a complex&mdash\;and sometimes humorous&mdash\;story o f the many different individual lives and landscapes comprising the vast mo saic that is the Golden State.

\n

The ti tle of the exhibition is taken from an interview that Hamilton did with Mod oc County rancher and poet Linda Hussa:

\n

If your poetry isn't based on something that's impo rtant to you&mdash\;family\, place\, the purpose of your life&mdash\;well t hen it's kind of empty isn't it? Because it has to have that passion to aff ect other people\, to make other people care about what you are saying. The y have to hear that there is something there.... I always wanted people to understand what was going on in the rural routes. And that there certainly should be some regard for the people there. Because I see beauty in this li fe\, I don't think it is lonesome. And I don't think it is dumb.

\n

There are many ways to define what is "rural." For the purpose of her work and this exhibition\, Hamilton has used the ter m to describe\, "places where the culture and the economy are defined by th e direct use of natural resources." This manifests in myriad ways\, somethi ng reflected by the works in \;I See Beauty in This Life. We s ee gushing oil spouts and the faces of the men who work them\, as well as g raffiti left by trapped miners who were not rescued in time. A 4-H girl gua rds her prize sheep under the scrutiny of a Los Angeles television camera a nd a rodeo queen applies lipstick from the make-up kit in the horn of her s addle. Given the great range of experience presented by these photographs\, even those familiar with rural California are likely to be surprised.

\ n

Hamilton\, who focuses on agriculture and rural communities\, is the first scholar in a new program of the Californi a Historical Society called \;Curating California \;through which artists\, writers\, historians\, poets\, activists \, and other remarkable Californians are invited to explore the rich collec tions of the Historical Society with the goal of inspiring a project or exh ibition. She is the author of \;Deeply Rooted: Unconventional Farme rs in the Age of Agribusiness. Her work has also been published in&nbs p\;The Nation\, \;The Atlantic\, \;McSweeney' s\, and \;Orion. In 2011\, she turned her focus to Califo rnia\, traveling over 10\,000 miles around the state\, exploring its rural communities and landscapes in the multimedia work Real Rural. The work has many forms\, including an ad-art campaign on BART and a storytelli ng website (www.realrur al.org) that weaves portraits from photographs\, audio\, and text. As w ith all of her work\, Hamilton considers questions of identity and communit y in \;I See Beauty in This Life\, this time using photographs from throughout rural California's rich history.

Someday is Now: The Art of Corita Kentis the first full-scale exhibition to survey the entire ca reer of pioneering artist and designer Corita Kent (1918-1986). For over th ree decades\, Corita experimented in printmaking\, producing a groundbreaki ng body of work that combines faith\, activism\, and teaching with messages of acceptance and hope. A Sister of the Immaculate Heart of Mary\, Corita taught at the Art Department at Immaculate Heart College in Los Angeles fro m 1947 through 1968. At IHC\, she developed her vibrant\, Pop-inspired prin ts from the 1960s\, mining a variety of secular and religious sources and u sing the populist printmaking medium to pose philosophical questions about racism\, war\, poverty\, and religion. Her work was widely recognized for i ts revolutionary impact and remains an iconic symbol of that period in Amer ican history. As a teacher\, Corita inspired her students to discover new w ays of experiencing the world by seeking out revelation in everyday events. Bringing together artwork from Corita's entire career\, this exhibition re veals the impassioned energy of this artist\, educator\, and activist.

\ n

Someday is Now: Th e Art of Corita Kent is organized by Ian Berry\, Dayton Director of th e Tang Museum\, and Michael Duncan\, independent curator and art critic\, i n collaboration with the Corita Art Center\, Los Angeles. The exhibition is made possible with the generous support of the Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts and the Friends of the Tang.

Focusing on the core of his ar tistic practice\, poster design\, Ikko Style will provide a colorful look i nto how Ikko TANAKA's ideas were visualized and transmitted to a broad audi ence. Over 30 posters will be on view\, all of which are part of the museum 's permanent collection and will be exhibited for the first time.

\n

Tanaka's style is provocative yet timeless\, d rawing visual idioms from his cultural background and redefining them with the collective imagination of the present time. Born in Nara\, the cradle o f Japanese civilization\, educated in Kyoto\, the imperial capital and the cultural hub of Japan\, and starting his career in Osaka\, the city of comm erce and art patronage\, Tanaka was well situated to be a successful graphi c master in Tokyo\, an international metropolis.

\n


As a relentless promoter of visual expression\, Tanaka s trove to achieve universal aesthetic value beyond regional or cultural barr iers\, which can be seen in his countless designs of posters\, logos\, trad emarks\, books and packages. Through his vision\, forms drawn from traditio nal ukiyo-e (pictures of the floating world) were reduced into striking abs tract designs to promote cultural events. Using his aptitude for understand ing visual elements from any form\, Japanese written characters were transf ormed into effective and innovative graphic tools. Through Tanaka's celebra ted work with fashion designers and corporations including Hanae Mori and I ssey Miyake and Mazda Corporation\, Tanaka was able to bridge the gap betwe en fine art and the commercial sector.

Here and Gone is a si ngle channel video installation. In this video\, a pixelated scene of socia l unrest scrolls leisurely in the background while anonymous and oblivious figures are drawn over/into the frame\, implying gesture and division simul taneously. The entire time they continue on their way\, on their phones\, o n the go\, suggesting that they are so involved in their own world that the y ignore the diverse humanity that circulates around them in the public sph ere.

Rather than displacing them from his space\, the artist joins their network producing an ongoing p erformative project. Torres&rsquo\; collaborative effort by inserting small replicas of protests signs into the colony&rsquo\;s repetitive motions\, r esult in abstracting the human gaze\, as well as disrupting the ants&rsquo\ ; daily routine.

Scheduled to coincide with City of Riverside&rsquo\;s 22nd Annual Festival of Lights\, Desert Lig hthouse Ultimatum presents a project status report from multi-media artist Daniel Hawkins\, documenting his struggles to erect a full-size\, functioni ng lighthouse in the Mojave Desert near Hinkley\, California &ndash\; an ed ifice he completed once but which was immediately dismantled by scavengers. Following hot on the heels of his Desert Lighthouse Protocols\, which was his MFA thesis exhibition at UC Irvine in 2014\, Ultimatum expands and focu ses his vision with an array of artifacts and documents\, centering on the fully functioning top 1/5 of the rebuilt lighthouse. The Culver exhibition also includes materials as diverse as the artist&rsquo\;s beautifully paint ed panoramic backdrops of the actual building site\, a pair of oversized bu lletin board compositions presenting an intricate non-linear pictorial/info rmational representation of the Desert Lighthouse saga\, video animations s imulating the lighthouse&rsquo\;s eventual decay\, and a limited edition Pr ospectus for potential investors in this exciting Land Art investment oppor tunity.

\n

 \;

\ n

Los Angeles-based artist Daniel Hawkins&rsquo\; work often consists of the deliberate undertaking of improbably ambitious inter actions with the landscape &ndash\; as in his ongoing actual-size recreatio n of the Hoover Dam in piecemeal fragments. Cycles of grandiosity\, failure \, and rationalization are explored and articulated through a battery of sc ulptural\, architectural\, land art\, and performative strategies\, while i ncorporating diverse media from printmaking\, drawing\, and painting\, to v ideo\, sound art\, and digital imaging.

\n

 \;

\n

As critic Dou g Harvey observes in his essay for the Prospectus\, &ldquo\;Drawing equally from the legacies of land artists like Robert Smithson and storytellers su ch as filmmaker Werner Herzog\, Hawkins&rsquo\; Desert Lighthouse project i lluminates a constantly shifting landscape of post-modern narratives\, hear kening back to the Neolithic monument builders at the dawn of human history while looking forward to the internet&rsquo\;s transformative impact on th e nature of human consciousness and reality.&rdquo\;

CMP Projects presen ts a solo installation by artist Phil Chang. The project is suspended on th e border of photography and non-photography\, demanding that the viewer con sider the medium&rsquo\;s inherent qualities. The exhibition will feature a selection of photographs from Chang&rsquo\;s recently conceived untitled s eries of monochromes (2014-ongoing). These photographic prints are made wit hout the use of a camera or film\, thereby pushing our understanding of the medium as it abandons the analog for a decidedly digital age. Additionally \, one unfixed photographic work will be featured in the exhibition. An evo lution of his highly acclaimed body of work &ldquo\;Cache\, Active&rdquo\;( 2012)\, Monochrome\, Exposed (2015) is a new unfixed photograph th at will be exposed over the course of its own exhibition&rsquo\;s first hou rs\, effectively rendering it\, too\, a monochrome.

\n

Monochrome \, Exposed will be unveiled and the artist will offer public remarks i n the gallery at 5pm on Saturday\, May 16.

\n

Phil Chang was born in 1974 in Indiana. He currently live s and works in Los Angeles where he is visiting faculty in the Department o f Art at the University of California\, Los Angeles\, and a lecturer at Oti s College of Art and Design. He earned his MFA at California Institute of t he Arts\, and his BA at the University of California\, Irvine. CMP Proj ects: Phil Chang is the first solo museum presentation of his work.
