Jordan Schnitzer Museum of Art (JSMA)

The JSMA’s fourth “Common Seeing” exhibition supports the UO’s 2019-20 “Common Reading” of Under the Feet of Jesus by Helena Maria Viramontes. In the book, the resilient protagonist,13-year-old Estrella, works in the hot California grape fields while navigating the realities of first love, financial struggle, family separation, and illness. For more information about the “Common Reading,” including upcoming university events, visit commonreading.uoregon.edu. Two special loans from the Smithsonian American Art Museum (SAAM) by artists Emanuel Martinez and Domingo Ulloa anchor the exhibition. Martinez created Farm Workers’ Altar (1967) for the Catholic Mass held in Delano, California, at which labor activist César Chávez broke his twenty five-day fast in 1968. Ulloa, “The Father of Chicano Art,” painted Braceros (1960) after visiting a labor camp in Holtville, California. From 1942 through 1964, the U.S. government invited agricultural workers from Mexico for limited-duration assignments to relieve the worker shortage caused by World War II. Ulloa presented a sobering view of the reality of life for these braceros (from the Spanish for “one who works using his arms,” implying manual labor), who experienced poor working conditions, crowded living quarters, and other challenges while employed in the United States. These special loans provide historical and cultural touchstones for Viramontes’s 1995 novel and contemporary works from the JSMA’s permanent collection, including recent acquisitions by Ester Hernández, Victor Maldonado, and Lilliam Nieves.

 

Resistance as Power: A Curatorial Response to Under the Feet of Jesus is one in a series of American art exhibitions created through a multi-year, multi-institutional partnership formed by the Smithsonian American Art Museum as part of the Art Bridges + Terra Foundation Initiative.

Erb Memorial Union (EMU), Aperture Gallery

Joey Montoya (Lipan Apache) is an indigenous multimedia artist, clothing designer and entrepreneur whose work is aimed at increasing the visibility and resiliency of indigenous peoples so they may create and fuel positive social change. All the art in this exhibit is inspired by indigenous-led social movements. Joey started his own brand, Urban Native Era (UNE), during his first year of college in 2014; UNE has now been thriving and growing for seven years. Urban Native Era (UNE) is a company whose goal is to build a platform showcasing the diversity and strength of indigenous nations across the globe while spreading awareness about the challenges we face today. Through the power of storytelling, Urban Native Era (UNE) uses design, film, and photography to empower collective change. Urban Native Era was born in response to indigenous-led social movements as a way to reclaim the narrative of being indigenous in everyday modern contexts. UNE strives to be an accessible outlet for indigenous people to do just that, simultaneously highlighting positive indigenous-led movements, and celebrating the diversity of indigenous cultures around the world. Joey will visit the UO campus on Tuesday, November 26th as part of the BEseries; his presentation - BE Process – starts at 6:00 pm (dinner is served 5:30 pm)  in the EMU Ballroom – join us!   Joey Montoya on Instagram @joeymontoya Urban Native Era on Instagram @urbannativeera

October 12 2019–May 10 2020
Museum of Natural and Cultural History

Racing to Change chronicles the civil rights movement in Eugene, Oregon, during the 1960s and 1970s—a time of great upheaval, conflict, and celebration as new voices clashed with traditional organizations of power. Co-developed by the Museum of Natural and Cultural History and Oregon Black Pioneers, the exhibit illuminates legacies of racism and the unceasing efforts of Oregon's Black communities to bring about change. 

Through photographs, recorded interviews, and historical archives, Racing to Change explores how racist policies and attitudes created a pressing need for bold civil rights activism in Eugene. Firsthand accounts from movement organizers, former UO students, elected officials, and other members of Oregon's black communities paint a vivid picture of the area's past, and urge us to take part in building a more just future. On view through May 10, 2020.
