OF GEORGIA, ATHENS
Visiting Artist Lecture sponsored by the Ann Orr Morris Memorial Fund
We live in the long shadow of Enlightenment thinking. Primarily thought of as oppositional to all that is modern and rational, the idea of magic is often viewed with skepticism. This presentation will reframe our assumptions and biases and examine jewelry’s relationship with language and how this potent connection is evidenced in ritual and magic. Drawing on historical context, as well as my own work, I will discuss how jewelry functions as a magical, mnemonic device – as an archive that gives us access to a body of knowledge and experience.

DISCURSIVE AT THE JORDAN SCHNITZER MUSEUM
Discursive features work—ranging from functional to sculptural, from performance to site-specific—created by UO faculty and visiting artists who participated in the 2016 Summer Craft Forum at the UO. During this two-week event, the participants – all of whom work in craft media, such as ceramics, metalsmithing, fibers, and printmaking – occupied UO studios to make art. During this period, they also engaged in group discussions about “craft” and its relationship to the discrete disciplines represented by the group and their individual practices. Discursive is, then, both the culmination of what was an extraordinary forum and an opportunity to deepen inquiry about contemporary craft discourses on campus and beyond.
