Ode To The Sea: Art From Guantanamo, Erin L. Thompson, Charles Shields, Paige Laino 2018 John Jay College, City University of New York

Ode To The Sea: Art From Guantanamo, Erin L. Thompson, Charles Shields, Paige Laino

Publications and Research

Exhibition catalogue for “Ode to the Sea: Art from Guantánamo” (October 16, 2017-January 26, 2018, President's Gallery, John Jay College of Criminal Justice, New York). Detainees at the United States military prison camp known as Guantánamo Bay have made art from the time they arrived. The exhibit displays some of these evocative works, made by eight men: four who have since been cleared and released from Guantánamo, and four who remain there. They paint the sea again and again although they cannot reach it. The catalog includes contributions by Trevor Paglen, Solmaz Sharif, Natasha Trethewey, Jericho Brown, and current ...


The Bronx Was Brewing: A Digital Resource Of A Lost Industry, Michelle Zimmer 2018 The Graduate Center, City University of New York

The Bronx Was Brewing: A Digital Resource Of A Lost Industry, Michelle Zimmer

All Dissertations, Theses, and Capstone Projects

The Bronx: a bucolic oasis laden with history, a suburb within city-limits, an urban warzone, and thanks to the recent renaissance, a phoenix of progress rising from the proverbial ashes of the fires that burned through the borough in the 1970’s. But many people are unaware that the Bronx also brewed.
Uncovering the brewing industry of the Bronx tells not only the story of the lost industry, but it also communicates the narrative of the development of the Bronx. The brewers were German immigrants who developed a thriving industry by introducing lager beer to the United States by taking ...


Bloomsbury's Byzantium And The Writing Of Modern Art, Elizabeth Sarah Berkowitz 2018 The Graduate Center, City University of New York

Bloomsbury's Byzantium And The Writing Of Modern Art, Elizabeth Sarah Berkowitz

All Dissertations, Theses, and Capstone Projects

“Bloomsbury’s Byzantium and the Writing of Modern Art” examines the role of Byzantine art in Bloomsbury art critics Roger Fry’s and Clive Bell’s narratives of aesthetic Modernism. Fry, in his pre-World War I and interwar writings and teachings on art, and Bell, in seminal texts such as Art (1914), have been branded by art historiography as the prime movers in a Formalist, teleological narrative of Modern art still prevalent in textbooks today. Fry’s and Bell’s ideas were later adopted by important Modernist authors and cultural figures, such as Alfred H. Barr, Jr., first director of ...

Jack Goldstein In Los Angeles, Kirby Michelle Woo 2018 CUNY Hunter College

Jack Goldstein In Los Angeles, Kirby Michelle Woo

School of Arts & Sciences Theses

This paper reexamines Jack Goldstein as one of the key but under recognized figures of what came to be known as the postmodern period in American art. Often described as bridging the gap between conceptualism and pop art, his work explores visual strategies of representation through the lens of art and mass media and how they inform our understanding of the world around us. Goldstein's interest in representation is outlined by the cultural practices and aesthetic priorities of Los Angeles (where he began making art) of the late 1960s and 1970s and by extension, Hollywood.


A Lens Without Limits: The Photography Of Lida Moser, Elizabeth Lee, Jacqueline Hochheiser, Kate Marra, Monica Skelly, Trout Gallery 2018 Dickinson College

A Lens Without Limits: The Photography Of Lida Moser, Elizabeth Lee, Jacqueline Hochheiser, Kate Marra, Monica Skelly, Trout Gallery

Student Scholarship & Creative Works By Year

Catalogue of an exhibition at the Trout Gallery, March 2 - April 14, 2018

Senior Exhibit, Art and Art History Department, Associate Prof. Elizabeth Lee, Dickinson College

The art historical methods exhibition is by its very nature a collaborative undertaking that depends upon the support of many people across several months of planning and preparation. This year, no one deserves more praise than Dickinson’s Board of Trustee member, Eric Denker ’75, who has generously loaned The Trout Gallery roughly five-hundred photographs by Lida Moser for this exhibition, a fraction of which are on display. Dr. Denker was Curator of Prints ...


French Wallpaper Decors: Papiers Peints In Homes Of The American South, Christine Speare 2018 Sotheby's Institute of Art

French Wallpaper Decors: Papiers Peints In Homes Of The American South, Christine Speare

MA Theses

French wood-block printed wallpaper is a very unique mural art form, yet often neglected. With this historical lack of attention, few academics have devoted themselves to the study of the topic, especially in the United States; and yet, wallpaper can reveal so much about past styles, settings, and collectors. Due to the historical changes in fashion, natural aging, weather, war, and neglect, a considerably limited number of collections continue to hang in situ in the American South in relation to the abundant examples found in the Northeast that have been better documented. Yet, the South’s historic affinity for all ...


Review Of John James Audubon: The Nature Of The American Woodsman, By Gregory Nobles, Matthew Guzman 2018 University of Nebraska-Lincoln

Review Of John James Audubon: The Nature Of The American Woodsman, By Gregory Nobles, Matthew Guzman

Dissertations, Theses, and Student Research: Department of English

When we think about American ornithology, John James Audubon is often the first name that comes to mind. As evidence to Audubon’s lasting ability to enrapture readers, it bears repeating that an original Double Elephant Folio of Birds of America sold for an astounding $11.5 million in 2010 (2). Yet, for a man who produced such stunning and memorable visual and literary work on the avifauna of North America, some of the important details of his life and origins have remained highly contested. Even though Gregory Nobles’s new biography is not explicitly tied to the study of ...


Laminated Paint, Travis R. Austin 2018 Virginia Commonwealth University

Laminated Paint, Travis R. Austin

Theses and Dissertations

Though we may not perceive it, we are surrounded by material-in-flux. Inert materials degrade and the events that comprise our natural and social environments causally thread into a duration that unifies us in our incomprehension. Sounds reveal ever-present vibrations of the landscape: expressions of the flexuous ground on which we stand.

Digital Strategy In The Art Museum, Ayse Hunt 2018 University of Puget Sound

Digital Strategy In The Art Museum, Ayse Hunt

Summer Research

What motivates an art museum’s digital strategy? This study investigates why art museums utilize interpretive digital technologies in their exhibitions, with a focus on how digital strategies impact visitor engagement. To answer these questions, I visited seven art museums in the United States—in Washington, Oregon, and California, specifically. At each location, I collected observational and qualitative data through interviews with members of staff including curators, interpretive media specialists, and museum educators. Additionally, I toured each site and reviewed any related online content.A comparative analysis of the seven museums revealed a diverse number of approaches to digital strategy ...
