Ladislas Segoe

The Life and Work of Regional Planning Pioneer Ladislas Segoe

February 15th–April 5th

Ladislas Segoe, an Austro-Hungarian immigrant who left Europe during WWII and was frequently instrumental in the development and perfection of American planning practice. His success was due to the strength of his personality, the coherence of his vision of planning as an encompassing process, his conscientious follow-through, and his insistence that planners be responsible, reasonable and honest professionals. His achievements include preparing the first plan of a major American city (Cincinnati), supervising the first federal study of urban America, writing the most influential planning text of the first half of the twentieth century, co-developing comprehensive planning, advocating regional planning and originating the concept of the urban growth boundary. This traveling exhibition will be displayed at Cornell University in the fall of 2015 and at the Technion— Israel Institute of Technology in the spring of 2016.

Artist Reception: Thursday, February 19th from 5pm–7pm

Bret Price: Cross Sections

Curated by: Aaron Cowan, Director, DAAP Galleries

October 22-December 9, 2014

On October 23, 2014, the University of Cincinnati will celebrate the addition of Jezebel, a monumental sculpture by artist Bret Price, to it’s renowned collection of public art. In conjunction with the unveiling of Jezebel the DAAP Galleries proudly present Cross Sections, an exhibition of small scale works by Price.

The work of Price, firmly rooted in ceramics, can be elegant and brutal, confounding our notions of materiality at every turn. Having successfully managed to invent techniques that transform steel into a malleable substance with properties akin to clay, Price bends, twists and folds a seemingly rigid material in unexpected ways. This process allows Price to create works that defy our notions of materiality and the limitations they present. With the use of automotive paint acting much like a glaze Price further obscures the viewers sense of the materiality and draws the viewer into the unexpected forms that result. We invite you to join us for the introduction of Jezebel followed by the reception of Cross Sections.

Jezebel Unveiling, Thursday, October 23, 4 pm, DAAP Complex followed by Artist Reception, 5-7 pm, Meyers Gallery.

What’s Next

August 31 – October 12, 2014
DAAP Galleries at the University of Cincinnati cordially invites you to the presentation of What’s Next, a collaborative group exhibition in progress August 31-October 12, 2014, in the DAAP Galleries, Philip M. Meyers, Jr. Memorial Gallery. 

What’s Next is a collaboration project between Prairie, Inc., a Cincinnati arts organization and UC’s School of Art. Selected students will attend two educational programs at UC’s School of Art. Working in small teams participants will learn about innovative techniques and materials during the production of work. The exhibition will be in two stages acting as working studio while participants produce the work and second, as exhibition of the final production.

The techniques that will be employed for this project include, lenticular printing, Blueline Printing, and creating animated GIF works (also called cinemagraphs). Students will also be encouraged to incorporate other methods and materials outside the scope of traditional photo practice, which they may be using in a different context.

Artist Closing Reception: Thursday, October 9, 2014, from 5-7 pm.
