Emmanuel d'Alzon Library

During all March 2015, the Emmanuel d'Alzon Library will be hosting the Mural Exhibit “Art in Motion – Guayasamín’s Ecuador Unframed,” which bridges cultural theory, mathematical analysis, media visualization, pedagogy, and computer programming in an innovative installation of the mural Ecuador (1952), a piece by Oswaldo Guayasamín, one of the most prominent Latin American artists of the Twentieth-Century. 

Intended to represent the inherent antagonisms and racial multiplicity of the Ecuadorian nation, the mural of five interchangeable panels that can be arranged in any order and invite constant rearrangement.  As identity is always in motion, such is the feeling behind Guayasamín’s mural.  Unfortunately, the mural -currently exhibited in La Capilla del Hombre in Quito, Ecuador- was framed by many years and thus immobilized… until now.

The only archival quality reproduction of the mural will be exhibited unframed alongside a digital interface with an iPad application created for this project that will allow spectators to view in motion its 30,720 potential configurations, and even to create their own mural.

Presented by Heidi Gearhart, PhD, Assistant Professor of Art History.

The Medieval and Early Modern Studies (MEMS) Program at Assumption College Invites you to the Fourth Annual MEMS Faculty Lecture

Few artists are known from the Middle Ages, and one often assumes the medieval artist to be a humble craftsman. But was this really the case? Were there no artists at all, or if there were, were they merely servants of their patrons?

This talk will consider the possibility of artists in the Middle Ages - who they were, how they worked, and how their work was valued by their culture.

Scott Nelson Foster, M.F.A. will deliver a lecture elucidating his experiences teaching and practicing art within the liberal arts.  An avid experimenter, Scott uses both ancient and contemporary materials to create nuanced images of the suburban and urban landscape, which he has exhibited in solo and juried shows across the country.  Prof. Foster has worked in a variety of two-dimensional media including glue and egg temperas, watercolor, oil, and serigraphy.  His interest in esoteric and unusual artistic practices has allowed him opportunities to work with iconographers, fresco painters, performance artists, and alchemists.
