          TALK: From Craft to Art: Communicating Through the Medium of Book Art
Special Collections, 3rd Floor of Davidson Library, Special Collections, 3rd Floor of Davidson Library, UCSB, Santa Barbara

TALK: From Craft to Art: Communicating Through the Medium of Book Art Lyall Harris (book artist) Thursday, May 5, 2016 / 3:00 PM Special Collections, 3rd Floor of Davidson Library Book art at its best is a medium where the maker’s keen use of the material components creates a faceted, more comprehensive and potent language to express content. In this way, the parts themselves, in the context of the piece, become bearers of meaning that work collectively to cause a kind of “transcendence,” from material to conceptual. This is where craft becomes art. Lyall Harris will present an array of these “literary art objects”—variously spawned by particular texts, “book” forms, specific materials, or images—to illustrate my creative process and the unique potential of book art as medium. Since the late 90s, Lyall Harris’ artwork has been exhibited in more than one hundred solo and juried group shows and recognized with over twenty awards, including The George Hitchcock Prize for painting from the National Academy Museum, NY, and a Purchase Award in Book Art from the University of Utah for a fifteen-book site-specific project. Her book art can be found in numerous Special Collection libraries across the United States, among these, Yale (Haas Arts Library), Stanford (Green Library), Indiana University (Lilly Library), Davidson Library (UCSB) and Smith College (Mortimer Rare Book Room). Harris has been the recipient of fellowships at Virginia Center for the Creative Arts, NALL Foundation in Vence, France, and San Francisco’s Grabhorn Institute. Sponsored by COMMA, UCSB Special Collections Library, and the IHC.

> DETAILS

COP21 proved conclusively that our institutions are not equipped to handle the enormous climate crisis that is facing humanity and our planet on their own. We need grassroots movements to drive needed transformation - to both demonstrate alternatives to the status quo and demand that governments, NGOs, and business get on board and work as allies, for the changes that are so desperately needed.

          TALK: Mesa of Sorrows: Orthodoxy and Heterodoxy at Awat’ovi Pueblo
Lane Room, 3824 Ellison Hall, UCSB, Santa Barbara
> DETAILS   
> HIDE   
TALK: Mesa of Sorrows: Orthodoxy and Heterodoxy at Awat’ovi Pueblo James F. Brooks (History and Anthropology, UCSB) May 10, 2016 / 4:00 PM Lane Room, 3824 Ellison Hall The Hopi community of Awat’ovi existed peacefully on Arizona’s Antelope Mesa for generations until one bleak morning in the fall of 1700—raiders from nearby Hopi villages descended on Awat’ovi, slaughtering their neighboring men, women, and children. While little of the pueblo itself remains, five centuries of history lie beneath the low rises of sandstone masonry, and theories about the events of that night are as persistent as the desert winds. The easternmost town on Antelope Mesa, Awat’ovi was renowned for its martial strength, and had been the gateway to the entire Hopi landscape for centuries. Why did kinsmen target it for destruction? Drawing on oral traditions, archival accounts, and extensive archaeological research, James Brooks unravels the story and its significance. Sponsored by the IHC’s Identity Studies RFG.
