LISTINGS:
Working Metal in 20th-Century Sculpture Jan 31, 2018-April 30, 2018
Metal sculpture created directly by the artist’s hand is the focus of a new exhibition by Sydney Skelton Simon, a PhD candidate in the Department of Art & Art History, whose proposal was selected in the fall. Featuring small-scale sculptures, photographs, and sound recordings, this exhibition explores modes of working with metal that depart from more traditional casting methods.

Betray the Secret: Humanity in the Age of “Frankenstein” April 4, 2018–August 5, 2018

Marking the 200th anniversary of the publication of Mary Shelley’s novel Frankenstein, or The Modern Prometheus, Stanford University is organizing Frankenstein@200. This yearlong series of courses, lectures, conferences, and a film festival will highlight the relevance of Shelley’s text today, as artificial intelligence and advances in engineering and medicine increasingly blur the divide between man and machine. An associated exhibition drawn from the Cantor’s permanent collection will explore the idea of what defines humanity in the age of Frankenstein.

The Dancing Sowei: Performing Beauty in Sierra Leone March 21, 2018–December 21, 2018
This exhibition focuses on one spectacular work in the Cantor’s collection—a sowei mask, used by the women-only Sande Society that is unique to Sierra Leone. Used in dance by senior women of the society, the sowei mask symbolizes knowledge of feminine grace and is part of a young girl’s initiation into adulthood. Thus, for many women of the region, beauty is literally performed into existence through ndoli jowei (the dancing sowei or the sowei mask in performance). Take an in-depth look at a sowei’s aesthetic expressions of elegance, from its serene gaze of inner spirituality to the corpulent neck rolls that signify health and wealth—a beauty as defined and danced by women.

Framing in Time: Photographs from the Cantor Arts Center Reimagined January 24, 2018–May 28, 2018
Each of the short, student-made films in this exhibition will appropriate and re-imagine a photograph from the Cantor’s collection. Striving to shed new light on the original context of the photographs, the films will be shown alongside the Cantor photographs that served as their inspiration. The short films were made by Stanford students in Assistant Professor of Art Srdan Keca’s “Archival Cinema” class during fall quarter 2017.

Ink Worlds: Contemporary Chinese Painting

05/23/2018-09/03/2018
11:00 am - 5:00 pm
Cantor Arts Center at Stanford University
Stanford  CA

The first exhibition at the Cantor Arts Center devoted solely to contemporary Chinese ink painting features more than 40 works of art by nearly two dozen artists. Drawn from the remarkable personal collection of philanthropists and Stanford University alumni Akiko Yamazaki and Jerry Yang, the exhibition focuses on the contemporary period, probing the astonishing diversity of modern ink painting and calligraphy—artistic practices that are among China’s oldest and most enduring art forms. 墨境 Ink Worlds: Contemporary Chinese Painting from the Collection of Akiko Yamazaki and Jerry Yang considers ink painting from the 1960s through the present, examining salient visual features and international connections, as well as the ongoing impact of historical techniques, materials, and themes. The exhibition addresses not only the capacity of ink painting to evolve but also the contemporary nature of ink painting as a distinct genre whose achievements are already evident. Modern uses of ink—including photography and film, through which the very definition of ink is being expanded—are also considered. Works from the collection of Peter and Collette Rothschild, the Cantor, and from the Anderson Collection at Stanford University, add to the exhibition’s rich sense of historical consciousnes
