Marsden Hartley

The founders of Lehigh University saw art as integral to a well-rounded education. Following in the footsteps of Thomas Jefferson, who made his personal art collection accessible to students and faculty at the University of Virginia, Lehigh University’s first president, Henry Coppée, declared art one of the “elementary branches” of education....

Drawing by Peter Berg

Peter Berg (1948-1997) was known for his maze-like sculptural installations that moved in and out of existing architecture with discreet presence. Fabricated from standard building materials, Berg’s constructions of wood, sheetrock, spackle and paint often merged with their surroundings, sprouting walls, plinths, winding passageways, and rooms with no obvious entry points...

In printmaking, The Future Is Female, but so is the past. With or without the visibility they deserve, women artists have engaged the art of printmaking from the beginning.  Requiring technical mastery, physical strength, and stamina, printmaking—or the art of producing multiple images or impressions from a single plate or matrix—has its origins in 8th century Japan ...

Photograph by Pedro Meyer

Mexican photographer Pedro Meyer (b. 1935), is a pioneer of the digital revolution in contemporary photography, one of the first photographers to manipulate his images digitally.  Because of its mechanical nature, photography has often been misconstrued an unbiased reproduction of a single moment, a snapshot of the exact truth - something that Meyer disputes ...

Navarrete

Photography has been a lifelong passion for LUAG Director and Chief Curator Ricardo Viera. When Viera first came to Lehigh University in 1974, his priority was to establish professional standards for the art works he found.  To his dismay, he discovered—among the many paintings, prints, and coins which made up the fine art collection—there was only one photograph.  With this discovery his first IDEA was born: to build a teaching collection centered around works-on-paper, including photography.

The world of contemporary Japanese prints is a confluence of techniques, cross-cultural exchange, and historical influences. The effect of Japanese aesthetics on European artists like Whistler, Degas, and Van Gogh is well-known; but Japanese artists also borrowed many ideas from their contemporaries in the West.

Photograph by Gladys Triana

The strangeness of everyday objects provides endless fascination for artists. This experience of unsettling familiarity—or what Sigmund Freud called “the uncanny”—has taken many forms throughout history. The Greeks and Romans painted murals of windows and hallways to expand their rooms, a technique later known as tromp-l’oeil from the French term meaning to deceive the eye. In one legend, the painter Zeuxis (b. 464 BCE) was rumored to have produced a likeness of grapes so disturbingly realistic that birds would peck…

Photograph by Aaron Siskind

Aaron Siskind (1903-1991) revolutionized photography and influenced successive generations of artists in all mediums.  “When I make a photograph,” he wrote, “I want it to be an altogether new object.”  Originally a documentary photographer, Siskind turned his probing eye toward the ordinary and overlooked: torn posters, graffiti, seaweed strewn on the beach.  He collapsed the space of the photograph, relying on a dynamic sense of composition to organize two-dimensional surface and texture.  In the 1950s, Siskind exhibited his photographs alongside…

El Buzo, Untitled, 2015

Organized by NAEMI (National Art Exhibitions of the Mentally Ill).  Curated by Ricardo Viera. The term “outsider art” was coined by the English critic Roger Cardinal in 1972, taking as a starting point the original concept of “Art Brut” by French artist Jean Dubuffet.  Today many terminologies exist—“visionary”, “self-taught”, “art of the mentally ill”—but ultimately it is the term “outsiders” (those who do not conform to any official pattern) that continues to organize this wide-ranging reality in a more neutral…

A Collaborative Sound Sculpture. Celebrating 20 Years of Zoellner Arts Center. Humming computers. A droning HVAC system. The murmur of voices in a crowded lobby. These often unnoticed sounds create a sonic landscape that provides raw material for sound sculptor Scott Sherk. By chopping, compressing, and recombining recordings of these ambient sounds, Sherk constructs sonic forms that heighten the listener’s experience of space. His installation SonanceZOELLNER, incorporates light, speakers, and the natural resonance of the building to transform the Zoellner Arts Center into a sculptural sound environment.

Bethlehem, PA 18015 United States

When 13 trees fell at Bartram’s Garden during a huge storm in 2010, the Center for Art in Wood put out a call to artists, inviting them to propose and create new works using the fallen wood and other materials in the spirit of the garden’s founder, John Bartram. The response was overwhelming. Over 100 proposals were submitted from around the world. From these, works were selected, including collaborations by artists from three continents. John Bartram, a friend to Benjamin Franklin and royal botanist to King George III, was known for the innovative boxes he designed to ship seeds and plants to colleagues. His 18th century garden, now a historical landmark, remains a hub for sharing international plant knowledge. This exhibition celebrates Bartram’s legacy of invention and discovery by providing the opportunity for artists to remix his inspirational vision of botany, gardening, and design.

The visual power of words has captivated the human imagination since the invention of writing. In the hands of artists and poets, this raw material is stretched and transformed into a limitless array of expressive and conceptual forms—handwriting, graffiti, graphics, moveable type, and video imaging to name just a few. Drawn from Lehigh’s extensive collection, the artists in this exhibition explore diverse approaches including word-as-image, captioning, collage, spoken word, braille, and found text. Photography, printmaking, and video works by Guido Llinás, Stephen Althouse, Aaron Siskind, Robert Indiana, Marcia Resnick, Abelardo Morell, Miguel Loredo, Alexander Apóstol, Adál Maldonado, Ed Ruscha, Howard Finster, Arturo Cuenca, Gary Graves, and Pablo Gimenez-Zapiola are presented.

ROBERT FRANK / The Americans: 81 Contact Sheets

August 29, 2016 - December 10, 2016
DUBOIS GALLERY, Maginnes Hall,
9 West Packer Avenue
Bethlehem, PA 18015 United States
+ Google Map

In 1955, Swiss-born photographer Robert Frank traveled across the United states, shooting a quintessentially American social landscape from an outsider’s perspective. Made possible by a Guggenheim foundation fellowship, this now-iconic road trip yielded over 28,000 negatives from which Frank chose eighty-three images for his pivotal book, The Americans. First published in France, The Americans countered the image of 1950s optimism, revealing the hidden face of poverty, racism, and consumerism. Frank’s signature style—improvisational and probing—has had a lasting impact on photography. Drawn from a limited edition portfolio, the works in this exhibition present images of Frank’s unedited contact sheets, complete with his notations. They provide a glimpse of the artist’s mind at work during the realization of this monumental project. Presented as part of Lehigh Valley Photography Month, November 2016.

Latin American Art Is American Art. Abstraction, conceptualism, the politics of identity: these are the territories of contemporary art in America. Not surprisingly, these concerns belong to artists of many backgrounds with diverse personal histories. Contemporary Latin American Art focuses on the ways Latino artists have carved out a place within the mainstream of art history or have positioned themselves against it. Figures like Diego Rivera, Wifredo Lam, and José Clemente Orozco have become highly visible, but countless others from Argentina, Brazil, Mexico, Chile, Cuba, Jamaica, Ecuador and elsewhere have contributed to the complex story of contemporary art. Reflecting aspects of gender, diaspora, poetics, and political commentary, these artists address the reality of life in the 20th and 21st centuries.

Thanks to the genrosity of alumni and friends, the LUAG Teaching Collection includes excellent examples of work from each member of The Eight, also known as the Ashcan School.  This group of early 20th century American artists often painted gritty scenes of New York City tenement life, and were dubbed the Ashcan School by a critic who disliked their subject matter. The group was comprised of eight painters who were rejected by the National Academy exhibition in 1907. In response, they organized an alternative exhibition at the Macbeth Gallery, New York that is considered a milestone in the history of modern American painting.
