DAAP Lecture Series Orimo Event

School of Art Visiting Artist and Scholar Lecture Series is hosting Migiwa Orimo on October 1, 2019 at 6pm in 5401

An interdisciplinary artist, Migiwa Orimo primarily works in installation consisting of text, drawing, objects, video and sound that explores the notions of gap, slippage, and “a realm of disjunction.” Using the concept of storage/archive as her framework, Orimo explores the relationship between public memory and private space by examining: how memories are shared and internalized; how they are stored and become stories; and, how memories and history collide.

A four-time recipient of the Ohio Arts Council Individual Artists Fellowship/Individual Creativity Excellence Award for her interdisciplinary art projects, she was awarded residencies at the Headlands Art Center in 2012 and SPACES Gallery's SPACES World Artist Project in 2014. Her work has been shown extensively, including at the National Museum of Women in the Arts, Washington DC; San Bernardino Art Museum, CA; and in Ohio, the Springfield Art Museum, Dayton Art Institute, OSU's Urban Arts Space, Riffe Gallery (Columbus), Oberlin College's Baron Gallery, and Weston Art Gallery (Cincinnati).

Orimo was born and raised in Tokyo, Japan. After receiving her degree in literature and studying graphic design in Japan, she immigrated to the US in the 1980’s. Orimo lives and works in Yellow Springs, Ohio.

School of Art Visiting Artist and Scholar Lecture Series is hosting Lauren Henkin on October 22, 2019 at 6pm in 5401

Born in Washington, D.C., artist Lauren Henkin graduated with a Bachelor of Arts in Architecture from Washington University in St. Louis and now resides in Maine.

Her work for the last two decades has focused on how we occupy and relate to space, the built and constructed form and our surrounding landscape. She is currently preparing for her largest exhibition to date, "Props," which will open at the Contemporary Arts Center Cincinnati in late November. The works presented will utilize spaces within the building that have never shown art before. The exhibition is organized by CAC and curated by Steven Matijcio, Director and Chief Curator at the Blaffer Art Museum at the University of Houston.

Henkin's work resides in many institutional collections including Cleveland Museum of Art, Amon Carter Museum of American Art, Portland Art Museum, High Museum of Art, and more. Yale University has the largest collection of her work at 160+ pieces.

She is also the founder of Vela Noche, a publisher of fine press books and editions.

Duck Tape Exhibition

WHAT: Annual Outdoor Duck Tape® Exhibition
WHEN: Friday, June 7th(Install day) - Sunday, June 9th, 2019 10 AM-5 PM
WHERE: Corner of MLK Blvd and Clifton Avenue, University of Cincinnati Campus
RECEPTION: Saturday, June 8th, 12 - 3 PM – barbecue & music

America’s favorite fix-all since its World War II introduction, duct tape has been used for just about anything – from saving lives early in America's space exploration program to home improvement projects. And now students and faculty members from the University of the Cincinnati and the College of Design, Architecture, Art, and Planning (DAAP) have found yet another project-based approach to the material: An exhibition of large-scale sculptures to be displayed outdoors at the University of Cincinnati prior to their departure for the 16th Annual Avon Heritage Duck Tape® Festival outside of Cleveland.

Utilizing thousands of rolls of Duck Tape®, the students are creating three-dimensional enlargements of work with this year’s “SWEET 16” theme. The work focuses on a wide range of interpretations from “SWEET-est Hot Rod, The DuckCup Cake, DUCKy Charms,” a large-scale “Duck Tape Tiara” and a large scale “Gummy Bear Lounge” to name a few. The work will be displayed outdoors on the UC campus green at the corner of Martin Luther King Boulevard and Clifton Avenue from June 8 to June 9.
There will be a reception from 12 - 3 PM on June 8th , 2019 before the work heads to Avon, Ohio to become one of the main attractions for the more than 60,000 Duck Tape® enthusiasts that will attend the 16th Annual Avon Heritage Duck Tape® Festival, June 13th – 15th.

The course is led by Professor Joe Girandola and also includes assistance from Artist Rick Wolhoy. The course also collaborated with the Clifton Cincinnati Recreation Commission(CRC) after school program child artists who created an amazing Duck Tape Candy Necklace! The course is sponsored by and made possible by ShurTech Brands, LLC, the company that manufactures the iconic “fix-all” material,
Duck® brand duct tape, that now comes in numerous colors, designs, and licenses. Special Thanks to the 1819 Innovation Hub (uc1819.com) where the course was held this semester!

Lindsey Whittle's "Hook and Loop Work (in a Mylar Room)"

February 25, 2019 - City Beat

Housed on the Contemporary Arts Center's second floor gallery, Archive as Action meets three Cincinnati-based artists — Amanda Curreri, Lindsey Whittle and Calcagno Cullen —  at their intersection.

Each artists' space is distinct in style yet feels harmonious when seen as a whole. It asks the trio to peer into their own art histories and re-contextualize their work; the work featured is continuously evolving, being added to and reaches beyond the white cube.

And part of that evolution is in the community's hands. Throughout the exhibit's run (it closes June 16), participative and open events are slated. From noon-5 p.m. on Thursdays, bring your laptop and grab coffee from the lobby: Coworking with Cal will connect you with Cullen, who has transformed her space into an unconventional office. You can also add to her growing collection of information via one of her interactive displays, like by writing a letter to New York or leaving a voicemail detailing whatever moment you wish to share.

In a similar vein, a colorful display of funky shapes — which Whittle says was her biggest challenge to date — asks you to play around with their arrangement. Take them off the wall, figure out how to wear them, make your own. It's up to you. You can send your results to Whittle via social media.

From noon-4 p.m. on weekdays,  you may hear the hum of a sewing machine — that'd be Curreri's "RopeWalk" crew. On the back wall hang braided strands of rope made from recycled material. You can add to that growing collection, which will convene as a performance art event and part of the This Time Tomorrow festival in April. Participants will come together to create multi-colored ropes that will span the Purple People Bridge, a site that’s connected to the history of slavery and acts as a dividing line between the North and South; the walk is meant to represent public healing.

Events and performances will run through the exhibit; check contemporaryartscenter.org for more info.
