BurntGeneration: Contemporary Iranian Photography
September 7 - December 9, 2018 | Polk/Wilson Gallery
Burnt Generation, an exhibition of contemporary Iranian photography, surveys the profound impact of decades of political unrest and social upheaval on the people of Iran. The name Burnt Generation has been applied to Iranians born between 1963 and 1980. Their generation was overwhelmingly marked by the Iranian Revolution of 1979 which brought down the ruling monarchy with major social, political and economic consequences, as well as the 1980-1988 Iran-Iraq War in which many of them served.
Sara Angelucci: The Anonymous Chorus
September 7 - December 9, 2018 | Amsden Gallery
Toronto-based artist Sara Angelucci uses photography, video, audio and performance to explore themes of memory, conventions of image making and “the cultural role vernacular images play in framing particular stories, histories, and memorialization.”
Frederick Judd Waugh: Waterscapes
September 7 - March 31, 2019 | Beren Gallery
Selected from the Ulrich’s extensive holdings of works by the artist Frederick Judd Waugh, Waterscapes illustrates the breadth of approaches that he took in his studies of the major focus of his art. As a developing artist, Waugh explored a range of compositions from pastoral scenes to cityscapes, but his primary subject remained the sea. Waugh is generally considered one of America’s great marine painters. The works in this exhibition demonstrate his deft handling of light, tone and texture, and his ability to convey the sublime force of nature at moments of turbulence and repose.
Neighborhood: PALIMPSEST/ Barrio: PALIMPSESTO
September 7 - December 9, 2018 | Grafly Gallery
Neighborhood: PALIMPSEST/ Barrio: PALIMPSESTO is an off-site iteration of Horizontes, the “artist-driven, community engagement art project that aims to connect two underrepresented neighborhoods in north Wichita.” Co-organized with Armando Minjarez, the exhibition features the work of Wichita-based artists Alexis Rivierre, Bernardo Trevizo Jr., and Janice Thacker, together with New Orleans-based artist Ana Hernandez. Collectively the artists will reference the multilayered histories of these areas, illustrating ways in which we mark and experience residential communities. They are utilizing a variety of media that combine mapping, personal narrative, architecture and portraiture, to identify how the practices of redlining, urban planning and gentrification have targeted racialized neighborhoods in Wichita and beyond. At the same time, the exhibition reveals and is a tribute to the resilience of character that exists in these spaces in the face of ongoing systemic discrimination and attempts of erasure.
