October 2020 news — META ARTE

This month, META ARTE turned 15 years old, a moment to consider and celebrate - while distracted by the challenges of the day, from the pandemic to the elections. This month also brings good news to the arts in Seattle. I have been working with the Friday Foundation for a couple of years now, and today it announced the first round of gifts honoring Jane Lang Davis and Richard E. Lang.

Dawoud Bey's project for UW Tacoma recognized by the Public Art Network of Americans for the Arts

Four years ago, Kurt Kiefer with META ARTE curated a public art installation for the UW Tacoma Campus through ArtsWA, commissioning Dawoud Bey to create new work. This was a great experience for all, and the UW Tacoma has a great installation by the newly - and rightly - celebrated artist, who was just awarded a MacArthur Foundation fellowship.

Opinion | Modern African Art Is Being Gentrified

Interesting article - the issue is not only the displacement of artworks from their origins, but more pointedly, the lack of such representation there. This could also apply to Latin America.

This is good for the artists, but the rest of Africa will lose out.

As the new President of the Board of Artist Trust, I am thinking about those who have been in this position – Karen Guzak, Will Rava, Susan Wagner – and from whom I’ve learned, and especially about the most recent President, Stephanie Ellis-Smith, who has been simply (and complexly as need be) brilliant at it.

I love this organization – not just because it supports artists; most importantly because it is about a community supporting its artists in order to become a stronger, more interesting, better community. The Artist Trust mission says it well; https://artisttrust.org/index.php/about/mission.

I am now on my third board term, having first served in the late-90s, and back since 2012. This year we’ll be celebrating Artist Trust’s 30th birthday. We have an engaged board and a great staff, led by Shannon Halberstadt.

I am honored to take on this role, and invite all to become members of Artist Trust, to be friends of the organization, and to be funders of the great work being done.

Welcome to our new Board Members Heather Joy Helbach-Olds, Mariella Luz, and Sarah Traver + new Board President Pablo Schugurensky! http://ow.ly/1qg6302ihzZ

Pablo Schugurensky is not a suit. He may have managed the art collections of some of Seattle’s business-world behemoths (namely, Microsoft and its co-founder Paul Allen’s multi-billion-dollar private holding company, Vulcan Inc.), but his origins here are far from corporate. Even in a place where th…

Acclaimed photographer Dawoud Bey is internationally-recognized for his commitment to portraiture as means for understanding contemporary social circumstances.
In March, Mr. Bey visited Tacoma to create paired portraits of several community members. Through the Washington State Art in Public Places Program, 12 of those works are now on exhibit at the University of Washington Tacoma in the historic Snoqualmie Power House.

Dawoud Bey holds a Master of Fine Arts degree from Yale University School of Art, and is currently Professor of Art and a Distinguished College Artist at Columbia College Chicago. Bey’s works are included in the permanent collections of numerous museums, both in the United States and abroad. Please visit this site to learn more about Mr. Bey.

Please join us for a reception and viewing of his new Tacoma portraits. Mr. Bey will be introduced by Sandra Jackson-Dumont, Deputy Director of Education & Public Programs at Seattle Art Museum, regarded as a bold, original curator of participatory art experiences for people of all ages.

When Meta Met Data

Interesting article about the evolution of the meaning of META.
META ARTE was named so to refer to the the value of art beyond the object - to the contemplation, consideration, conversations and interactions that are assisted by the presence of art in our lives.

The advent of metadata shows us just how much — and how little — we truly know.

‘Ona,’ by Ursula von Rydingsvard, Arrives in Brooklyn

I was first struck by Ursula von Rydingsvard's work in 1988 at her show at EXIT ART. It changed the way I thought about sculpture. I've had the pleasure of working with her on a few projects. Not only she is a great artist, but also a wonderful person. Her work is both visceral and conceptual, and I continue to feel touched, or struck by it. Congratulations!

A nearly 12,000-pound sculpture called “Ona,” by Ursula von Rydingsvard, now stands greeting the public at Barclays Center.
