Compromised Values: Charlotte Posenenske, 1966–Present, Ian Wallace 2021 The Graduate Center, City University of New York

Compromised Values: Charlotte Posenenske, 1966–Present, Ian Wallace

Dissertations, Theses, and Capstone Projects

Fabricated in unlimited series and sold at cost, the sculptures produced by Charlotte Posenenske between 1966 and 1967—modular wall reliefs, interactive cubic structures, and tubular geometric units whose installation requires collective decision making—were meant to confront both the artwork’s commodity status and the limitation of its consumption to a privileged elite. Nevertheless, Posenenske’s work has been effectively recuperated by the art system: first, in the 1980s, through a series of exhibitions and publications organized by her estate; and second, with her inclusion in Documenta 12 in 2007, which reintroduced her work to the market. Since the ...


The Last Prisoners Of War: How Nazi-Looted Art Is Displayed In U.S. Museums, Monica May Thompson 2021 Augustana College, Rock Island Illinois

The Last Prisoners Of War: How Nazi-Looted Art Is Displayed In U.S. Museums, Monica May Thompson

Geifman Prize in Holocaust Studies

How art museums approach NLA is important today because much of the public relies on museums for their education. NLA cases are especially controversial because they are not only legal battles, but ethical ones so museums have to be extra careful approaching them. Even if the museum has won the legal battle the public may not see them as winning the ethical one therefore they might want to avoid displaying this information to the public. However, as we can see with the previous websites, it actually looks worse for museums not to be open and honest about their NLA pieces ...


Beside| |Between, Brooke J. Armstrong 2021 University of Montana, Missoula

Beside| |Between, Brooke J. Armstrong

Graduate Student Theses, Dissertations, & Professional Papers

Beauty and the grotesque both induce physical sensations in the body. Pleasure and displeasure are two points on the same line. They are not mutually exclusive. Like the body and the vessel, like the self and the other all things exist in reciprocity. The capability of holding brings agency, breaking down perceptions of of subject-object relationships. The works presented in this paper represent a merging and a transformation of perceived separate entities. Craft history and processes inform the work present in the thesis exhibition, Beside| |Between.

Post Postblack: Rethinking Contemporary Black Art In 2020 Art Culture, Brooke Finister 2020 San Jose State University

Post Postblack: Rethinking Contemporary Black Art In 2020 Art Culture, Brooke Finister

McNair Research Journal SJSU

For this study, I will be exploring the importance of advocacy in the art culture community. My research question is: Do we still need a postblack lens to look at black art and content? Historically, the black arts community’s perspective following the civil rights era and leading to the rise of the Black Arts Movement had been left out of exhibition spaces. I intend to evaluate the impact of arts foundations and organizations that contributed to the success of artists and curators within New York City from the late 1960s onward. In the 21st century we have much more ...


Conversations With The Oregon Trail And The Silent Generation, Jose A. Camacho Quiroz 2020 University of Maine

Conversations With The Oregon Trail And The Silent Generation, Jose A. Camacho Quiroz

Electronic Theses and Dissertations

The aim of this thesis is to explain the reason behind my art practise and process as it stands in August 2020, its context and relation to my life and experience as an outsider in the American culture. This process culminates in the documentation of experiences through the use and preparation of displays of personal artifacts as physical evidence and mechanisms of my transformation to my american persona through a continuing acculturation process and drift from the american generational archetype.

It is important to outline my current work state diverges from my past work since it no longer serves a ...

Representaciones Textiles En Los Iconos De La Litoescultura Tiwanaku: Distribución Y Significado / Textile Representations In The Iconography Of The Tiwanaku Lithic Sculpture: Distribution And Meaning, Carolina Aguero, Arturo Martínez

PreColumbian Textile Conference VIII / Jornadas de Textiles PreColombinos VIII (2019)

Se presenta la síntesis de una investigación destinada a identificar representaciones textiles en los iconos de la litoescultura Tiwanaku. Previamente ya habíamos usado un análisis componencial para segregar motivos y elementos en sus tres principales figuras: Personaje Frontal, Personajes de Perfil y Banda Faja. Luego se ubicaron sus referentes textiles en colecciones arqueológicas de Chile, Perú y Bolivia para precisar patrones de distribución espacial de las prendas y su iconografía en las distintas zonas que estuvieron en la órbita de Tiwanaku. Además, este estudio ha sido complementado con una exploración de los saberes ancestrales acerca de los iconos que están ...


Two-Headed Serpents And Rayed Heads: Precedents And Reinterpretations In Paracas Necropolis Imagery, Ann H. Peters 2020 University of Pennsylvania

Two-Headed Serpents And Rayed Heads: Precedents And Reinterpretations In Paracas Necropolis Imagery, Ann H. Peters

PreColumbian Textile Conference VIII / Jornadas de Textiles PreColombinos VIII (2019)

The Necropolis of Wari Kayan and other tombs of the Paracas Necropolis mortuary tradition present an astonishing diversity of textile styles, and an even greater diversity of imagery. More than 100 different motifs can be distinguished and tracked among the documented mortuary contexts. While is it not likely that our sample of 45 mummy bundles includes all important variants of any particular motif, in many cases it is possible to propose a sequence of reinterpretations of a key icon. By documenting the known assemblage of images and artifacts we can perceive what icons and styles are predominant, recurrent or unusual ...

Recontextualizando El Patrimonio Arqueológico: Los Textiles Paracas Descubiertos Por Engel En Cabezas Largas, Jessica Lévy Contreras

PreColumbian Textile Conference VIII / Jornadas de Textiles PreColombinos VIII (2019)

Resumen El archivo de Frédéric Engel, arqueólogo suizo quien trabajó en la costa sur del Perú entre los años 1950 y 1960, representa un patrimonio documental importante conservado en el Museo Nacional de Antropología, Biodiversidad, Agricultura y Alimentación (MUNABA) de la Universidad Nacional Agraria La Molina en Lima. Gracias a la revisión de los registros gráficos y fotográficos de las excavaciones realizadas en Cabezas Largas, sitio ubicado en la Península de Paracas, y particularmente de los materiales hallados en la tumba T.27, este artículo presenta los principales textiles asociados a la parafernalia ritual de siete fardos funerarios para tratar ...

Una Prenda Triangular Con Plumas En La Colección Del Museo De Sitio De Pachacámac, Lourdes Chocano Mena 2020 Museo Nacional de Arqueología, Antropología e Historia de Perú

Una Prenda Triangular Con Plumas En La Colección Del Museo De Sitio De Pachacámac, Lourdes Chocano Mena

PreColumbian Textile Conference VIII / Jornadas de Textiles PreColombinos VIII (2019)

Las formas habituales de los tejidos son la cuadrangular o la rectangular. Sin embargo, existen casos de tejidos como los paños trapezoidales de algodón usados como prendas de vestir (taparrabos, turbantes, pañuelos). Aquí presentamos un estudio de una prenda de forma triangular hallada en Pachacámac. Su hallazgo no recibió mayor atención, pese a su gran dimensión y la manera de cómo ha sido confeccionada, es muy particular: sus bordes están recamados de plumas anaranjadas y moradas en hileras. Explicaremos la confección de cada una de sus partes, haremos comparaciones con otras vestimentas de forma similar, y propondremos las posibles funciones ...


Middle Horizon Textiles From Chimu Capac, Supe Valley, Peru, Amy Oakland 2020 California State University - East Bay

Middle Horizon Textiles From Chimu Capac, Supe Valley, Peru, Amy Oakland

PreColumbian Textile Conference VIII / Jornadas de Textiles PreColombinos VIII (2019)

This article presents an overview of the textiles Max Uhle collected between November 4 and December 3, 1904 in the Middle Horizon cemetery at Chimu Capac in the Supe Valley, Peru. The total collection of objects numbers over 830 with 278 textiles including woven fragments, complete garments, woven and painted pouches, and over 155 painted textiles. The article discusses a sample of Chimu Capac textiles included in Uhle’s Supe field Notebook 67, in his hand-written Supe report, and textiles listed in the Supe Berkeley catalog. The Chimu Capac textiles compare with collections of Middle Horizon funerary objects made in ...

El Tapiz Colonial Con Tocapus Del Museo Nacional De Arqueología, Antropología E Historia Del Perú, Mónica Solórzano Gonzales

PreColumbian Textile Conference VIII / Jornadas de Textiles PreColombinos VIII (2019)

Se estudia en este texto un extraordinario tapiz que resalta por una decoración que combina símbolos incaicos, con aspecto de tocapus, con una cruz cristiana. Forma parte de una investigación mayor dedicada al tapiz andino colonial próxima a divulgarse. Actualmente, no se conoce otro ejemplar semejante en el Perú ni en el extranjero y probablemente se trata de uno de los tapices coloniales más antiguos. Tuvimos la fortuna de darlo a conocer en los seminarios del Doctorado del Programa de Estudios Andinos de la Pontificia Universidad Católica del Perú y en otros eventos desde el año 2014. Se halla en ...

Los Tocapus De Llullaillaco, Beatriz Carbonell 2020 Universidad Fasta Patagonia Argentina

Los Tocapus De Llullaillaco, Beatriz Carbonell

PreColumbian Textile Conference VIII / Jornadas de Textiles PreColombinos VIII (2019)

En el hallazgo de Llullaillaco los motivos de tocapu y cumbi se reiteran en importantes textiles que visten a los niños ofrendados y en otros en forma de miniatura vistiendo a las estatuillas que conforman el ajuar. Tanto las miniaturas antropomorfas de metal (oro y plata) como las de mullu (spondylus) están vestidas con uncu (túnica), yacolla (manto) y llautu (o vincha) y llevan una bolsa o chuspa con los mismos diseños que las prendas que visten los niños. Nuestra comprensión del significado de tocapu se basa en cómo ha sido descrito por los cronistas, asociado a veces íntimamente con ...


Ancient Peruvian Textiles In The Vatican Museums And Their Link To The Musée Du Trocadéro Collections, Jean-François Genotte 2020 The Vatican Museums

Ancient Peruvian Textiles In The Vatican Museums And Their Link To The Musée Du Trocadéro Collections, Jean-François Genotte

PreColumbian Textile Conference VIII / Jornadas de Textiles PreColombinos VIII (2019)

The Vatican Museums keep a small collection of about sixty textile fragments mostly Lambayeque, Chimu and Chancay dating back to Late Intermediate Period. Unfortunately, the archaeological provenance of these items is not known. This paper offers a first overview of the history of the collection, describing its contents and, in more details, its most interesting fabrics. We will then suggest that some fragments of the Vatican collection might have been part of textiles once kept in the Musée du Trocadéro, and nowadays preserved in the Quai Branly Museum in Paris.

The Pre-Columbian Textile Collection Of The German Textile Museum Krefeld, Katalin Nagy 2020 Deutsches Textilmuseum, Krefeld

The Pre-Columbian Textile Collection Of The German Textile Museum Krefeld, Katalin Nagy

PreColumbian Textile Conference VIII / Jornadas de Textiles PreColombinos VIII (2019)

The German Textile Museum in Krefeld houses a considerable collection of pre-Columbian textiles. Most originate from graves in the narrow arid area of the Peruvian coast. The original aim was to build an assemblage with the pedagogical and methodological intention of presenting a broad range of very different textile techniques in the education for the future textile workers of the industry in said region. With this intention in mind samples were gathered, and soon a few samples turned into an impressive collection in which almost all established pre-Columbian cultures and periods of the area of the Central Andes are represented ...


Signos Comunes En Los Textiles Andinos Y Los Mesoamericanos, Victòria Solanilla 2020 Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona

Signos Comunes En Los Textiles Andinos Y Los Mesoamericanos, Victòria Solanilla

PreColumbian Textile Conference VIII / Jornadas de Textiles PreColombinos VIII (2019)

Entre los recientes estudios sobre textiles Andinos, comienza a ser frecuente encontrar quienes se dedican a describir además de las técnicas, sus iconografías. Como eran sociedades ágrafas, nos hace pensar que con aquellas imágenes nos quisieron dejar su historia y pensamiento. En el caso de Mesoamérica, se podría decir lo mismo de las técnicas e imágenes, pero en este caso, las sociedades que los tejieron sí tenían manera de comunicarse a través de sus lenguajes escritos. No se han conservado tantos tejidos a causa del clima por las condiciones no favorables para la conservación de materiales orgánicos, pero tenemos muchos ...
