    For more information about the List Gallery, visit https://www.swarthmore.edu/list-gallery

    The List Gallery is pleased to present Spatial Recollections: Art from the Swarthmore College Permanent Collection and Recent Exhibitors. The exhibition continues through November 20, 2020.  Admission is limited to members of the Swarthmore College community who are authorized to be on campus. Located in the Lang Performing Arts Center, the List Gallery is open daily, Noon — 5:00 p.m.  Reservations can be made via the GET Mobile app. During gallery hours, visitors can also call (610) 328-7811 or stop by the gallery to see if space is available. 

     

    When Swarthmore's plans for a hybrid fall semester entailed closing its buildings to outside visitors, List Gallery director Andrea Packard installed Spatial Recollections as a resource for both students on campus and, eventually, for others who will visit online. Organized during a pandemic that has highlighted social divisions and shifting attitudes toward labor, shared spaces, and the environment, the exhibition features diverse artists who model craftsmanship, civic engagement, and innovation. Calling attention to masterworks that are usually installed in College offices or storage rooms, Spatial Recollections offers a glimpse of Swarthmore’s often-hidden artistic landscape. An online version of the exhibition is currently being organized in collaboration with four Swarthmore seniors who are participating in the gallery's internship program: Bria Dinkins, Inna Kimbrough, Lee Cohen, and Kristina Stallvik.

    Separated by an open partition, the two rooms of the gallery emphasize contrasting components of the exhibition. The smaller, inner gallery features a selection of ten 18th-century, 19th-century, and early 20th-century landscapes and portraits painted in oil. Highlights include two paintings by Benjamin West, who was likely born on Swarthmore's campus in 1738 before teaching himself to paint, emigrating to England, and co-founding England's Royal Academy of Arts. Other notable paintings on view include Wissahickon, by West's pupil, James Peale; Mount Desert, by Thomas Birch (1779-1851); and Early Spring, by the noted Scottish painter, Alexander Frazer the Younger (1827-1899). The inner room also offers the opportunity to compare early 20th-century works by Daniel Garber, Frederick Childe Hassam, Robert Henri, and Mildred Bunting Miller—American artists who distilled lessons from the Western canon, especially Impressionism, and emphasized transcendent beauty.

     

    In contrast to the historical landscapes and portraits in the inner room, the List Gallery's the outer room features 23 works in varied media by 20th Century masters who are represented in the permanent collection and artists who have exhibited at the List Gallery during the past twenty five years. Selected artists include Romare Bearden, Mary Lee Bendolph, Daniel Heyman, Orit Hofshi, David MacDonald, Chris Staley, Donald Teskey, Ellen Shankin, Judy Glickman Lauder, Kevin Snipes, and Donna Polseno. The featured artists also include Professor of Studio Art Syd Carpenter and three distinguished alumni. Robert Turner '36, who received an honorary degree from Swarthmore in 1987, is widely regarded as one of the foremost ceramic artists and teachers of the 20th century. Bruce Cratsley '66, a student of Lisette Model, photographed gay life in New York City. Alex Anderson '13, a rising star in the contemporary art scene, exhibits his ceramic works internationally and throughout the United States.

Este ciclo de memoria histórica y mujeres quiere contribuir a recuperar parte de esta memoria, difundiendo varios episodios históricos sufridos por las mujeres, y algunos de sus testimonios, respetando y dignificando su valentía ante la violencia de la que fueron víctimas.

  • Cooper Series: The Gathering (View)
    When: Friday, October 23rd, 2020 12:00pm - 2:00pm

    The Gathering

    A Virtual Cooper Event

    Organized by New York-based sculptor and installation artist Caroline Woolard, The Gathering is a series of workshops that explores how material objects can interrupt the unavoidable antagonisms of working together. In the first workshop, Woolard, in collaboration with Esteban Kelly, Director of the US Federation of Worker Co-ops, will lead participants in a discussion about the role that object-making can play in conflict transformation. In the next workshop, participants will respond in material form to the methods they discussed by creating sculptural objects for use in group communication. Finally, Woolard will train participants on how to use the objects created in the workshop in order to enable embodied, somatic, and haptic knowledge that does not emerge in purely verbal facilitation methods. 

    Workshop 1: Friday, Sept 25th 12-2pm

    Workshop 2: Friday, October 2nd 12-2pm

    Workshop 3: Friday, October 23rd, 12-2pm 

    Spaces are limited due to the participatory nature. Pre registration is required. Please send email to: (lcohen2@swarthmore.edu) to register and receive meeting invitation.
