September 21 – January 16:  Wákàtí – Time Shapes African Art, 11:00 am – 5:00 pm, OSU Museum of Art, 720 S. Husband St.  The relationship between time and space in African art is the focus of this exhibition.  Wákàtí, a West African concept among the Yoruba, refers to time as it unfolds and marks its passage with signs of change.  The works assembled for this exhibition tackle the question: how does time shape African art?  With works including painting, sculpture, ceramics, photographs, performance and installation arts, the exhibition presents the relationship between time and space in the making of the art objects, and the shaping of styles from different eras and various areas of Africa.  This exhibition, featuring works from the OSU Museum of Art collection, eliminates the artificial wall often erected between “traditional” and “contemporary” art in Africa by highlighting the seamless transition of time as a natural flow uniting images from ancient to current practices.  The works in the exhibition demonstrate the notion of Pabambari, an African esthetic idea for appraising and enjoying the highest form of artistic excellence.  In the gallery spaces, the works of living artists including Christopher Adejumo, Orisagbemi Arigbabuwo, and Tinuomi Afilaka, interact with ancestral images from Dogon, Ashanti, Yaka and other indigenous African traditions.  The exhibition is on view Sept. 21, 2015 – Jan. 16, 2016.  All related programming free and open to the public.

Mayumi Amada-Grandmother’s Whisper – 8:00 am – 5:00 pm, Gardinar Art Gallery, 108 Bartlett Center for Visual Arts, OSU Campus.  Mayumi Amada is a Japanese artist living and working in the United States.  Influenced by the spirit and ideologies of Buddhism, Amada often draws upon the philosophy of Zen to give direction to the creation of her work.  Focusing on reusable and recycled materials, Amada embraces the idea of giving these materials a new life and “rebirth” through the exploration of the connection between these recycled objects and her thematic interests.  Viewers are invited to reflect upon how the work addresses the circle of life and eternity in mortality.  Free and open to the public.

 

An Ode to Hands-Selections from the Permanent Collection, 11:00 am – 5:00 pm, Postal Plaza Gallery, 720 S. Husband St.  Including a variety of different media, this exhibition explores the theme of hands in art and life.  It looks at the representation of hands for what they reveal about the persons depicted and for how they communicate independently or in tandem with speech and facial expression.  It looks at the significance of the artists’ hands registered through signatures, techniques, and materials as demonstrations of creativity – or even, of that most elusive attribute of genius.  Finally, the exhibition considers the role of hands in designing objects for hands to hold or use.  An Ode to Hands is organized by the OSU Museum of Art and curated by Arlette Klaric, Ph.D., Curator of Collections.  There is an opening reception and roundtable discussion on September 10.

 

Print Beyond Pop-American Lithography After 1960, 11:00 am – 5:00 pm, Postal Plaza Art Gallery, 720 S. Husband St.  This exhibition looks at a critical moment for American lithography using objects from the OSU Museum of Art collection.  Presenting a diverse group of artists and styles, this exhibition explores the re-emergence of lithography in American art after 1960.  Known as a commercial printing method, lithography became popular with the Pop artists of the 1960s, but its influence and importance extended far beyond the Pop Art movement.  Two workshops, Universal Limited Art Editions and Tamarind, were critical to the lithography revival and its spread beyond Pop Art imagery.  The exhibition will include works by artists such as Robert Rauschenberg, Jim Dine, and Lee Bontecou, who produced prints at these workshops and reinvigorated the creation of lithographs for generations of artists.  Print Beyond Pop is curated by students at Oklahoma State University.  There is an opening reception September 10.
