“Weary Blues: Poetry and Jazz from Langston Hughes” Exhibition
UCSB Arts Library, UCSB Campus, Santa Barbara
This exhibition, on display in the UCSB Arts Library Lobby through Aug. 31, was inspired by a recent multimedia presentation of “The Langston Hughes Project / Ask Your Mama: 12 Moods for Jazz” at UCSB’s Multicultural Center, under the direction of Dr. Ron McCurdy. The performance brought Hughes’ epic poem “Ask Your Mama: 12 Moods for Jazz” to life as the poet originally intended: with jazz musical accompaniment. A CD recording of the performance is available in the Music Library. The exhibition contains UCSB Library materials from the Music, Art, Black Studies, and Special Research Collections, as well as posters and fliers for The Langston Hughes Project from McCurdy’s personal collection. These materials showcase and honor Hughes’ lasting contributions to American culture. Kyra Folk-Farber, Assistant Music Librarian and Evolving Workforce Resident at UCSB Library, curated the exhibition. The exhibition can be viewed during Arts Library hours.

The Paintings of Moholy-Nagy: The Shape of Things to Come
Santa Barbara Museum of Art
, 1130 State Street, Santa Barbara
Organized by the Santa Barbara Museum of Art, this exhibition is the first to explore how the practice of painting served as the means for the artist to imagine generative relationships between art and technology. László Moholy-Nagy (1895–1946) is now recognized as one of the most influential members of the Bauhaus. While his legacy for later 20th-century art is typically linked to the photogram (a type of cameraless photography), the driving force behind this presentation is the relatively under-recognized role of the more traditional medium of painting throughout Moholy’s career, which is explored in a selection of 33 works of art ranging in date from the 1920s to 1940s, including paintings, works on paper, photograms, video projections, and a facsimile replica of Moholy’s prescient Light Prop―one of the first kinetic sculptures of its kind. The installation also includes a Kodachrome slide set (the latest in color photography innovation at the time), which comprises 12 luminous images.

The Visionary Photomontages of Herbert Bayer, 1929-1936
Santa Barbara Museum of Art
, 1130 State Street, Santa Barbara
June 21 – September 27, 2015
On display in the Ridley-Tree Gallery Works on Paper section—and in tandem with the international loan exhibition The Paintings of Moholy-Nagy: The Shape of Things to Come—is a selection of photographs by Bauhaus artist Herbert Bayer (1900–1985). Influenced by the photographic works of László Moholy-Nagy and the modernist Bauhaus credo―there is no one true art form but rather an intersection of all art in pursuit of an idea, Bayer’s work as a photographer reflects his mastery of graphic design. Made in Berlin as Weimar culture faded and Hitler rose to power, the exhibited photomontages grapple with the tumultuous modern world as the artist experienced it between the years 1929 and 1936.

Out of the dungeon of despair, the story of knight errant Don Quixote rises in triumphant transformation in the classic musical Man of La Mancha. Forced to defend himself even from the other prisoners of the Spanish Inquisition, Miguel de Cervantes weaves a tale of chivalry in which his hero tilts with the great dark forces that only he can see and in so doing gives a glimpse of his vision to others that dares us to dream the impossible dream in this timeless, tough, and tuneful celebration of the human spirit.
