Dates: January 26 – February 27, 2015

Reception: Monday, February 2, 4 – 6 PM

Jewett Art Gallery at Wellesley College is pleased to present 1975, a group exhibition curated by Chương-Đài Võ, featuring works by Anida Yoeu Ali, Amy Lee Sanford and LinDa Saphan.

This exhibition brings together three diasporic Cambodian artists whose works engage with war, memory, displacement and globalization. Anida Yoeu Ali’s silk screen prints and video installation recall life in a refugee camp following the fall of the Khmer Rouge. Amy Lee Sanford’s video and photographs share with viewers the process of uncovering a difficult history, the turmoil of the late 1960s and 1970s, as told in letters written by a father she never knew. LinDa Saphan’s drawings of apartment buildings and architectural monuments in current-day Phnom Penh hint at the costs of urban development and global capitalism.

Wellesley, MA – December 2014

The Jewett Art Gallery at Wellesley College is pleased to present an exhibition of recent work by 7 artists: Anna Blige, Mary Coughlin, Orli Hakanoğlu, Rachel Hanscom, Gabrielle Kwon, Sihan Pang, and Jayne Yan.

Through consistent dialogue this past fall, these artists formed a community to spur each other on to individual work. As the talks continued, these artists found common threads in their interests that challenge the general expectations of drawing. By expanding the category of drawing as well as interests and abilities, the 7 artists invite others to join in on the conversation of pushing boundaries in drawing,

In this workshop, participants will examine the foundations of working in performance art. We will explore fundamentals such as strategies for working in real time, building relationships with audience and space, and techniques for documenting/archiving ephemeral works. Through the presentation of documents from experiential artworks, both historic and contemporary, participants learn about the current climate for artists working in this medium internationally. Schaefer and Fryer will present their own individual works, collaborative works, and works from The Present Tense Archive. In line with their curatorial mission, the works presented in this workshop will include a range of artists at various stages in their careers working all over the world. In this workshop, participants will engage in exercises that investigate how to use time, space, context, and symbolic action in their art practices. We will explore methods for witnessing live artworks, and how to build body awareness and presence.
