October 24 – November 15, 2019

Reception: Thursday, October 24 from 5:00-7:00pm 

Gallery Hours: Friday- Saturday 11:00am-4:00pm

Meadow Lines examines the connections between walking and drawing: the ways in which each delineates territory, modifies land and leaves traces. Jenkins practices walking as a form of drawing. She walks a landscape repeatedly, in various seasons and conditions, and records her movements via GPS. Upon returning to the studio Jenkins reconstructs the itinerary of each walk from its set of corresponding coordinates. Collected over time, the accretion of these digital threads form a mesh of overlapping lines and knots: a site plan of my movements through the landscape. This exhibition is made possible by the partnership of CFAR and the UO Slow Lab.

Katherine Jenkins is an assistant professor of landscape architecture at The Ohio State University and cofounder of the interdisciplinary design-research group, Present Practice. Her work expands the ways in which landscape architects engage with site and its material aesthetics. Her current project utilizes the inscription of walking as a design instrument for landscape architecture. Prior to joining OSU, Katherine taught in the Department of Landscape Architecture at Cornell University. She has an MLA from the University of Virginia and a BA in painting and printmaking from Yale University.

Conversation with 5 Minutes editors past & present

__

5 Minutes is a limited-run print publication of quick, informal conversations between graduate students and visitors to the Department of Art at the University of Oregon. The MFA program at UO prides itself on interdisciplinarity, and invites a wide range of artists representing some of the most innovative and influential work being done today to lecture on their work and ideas.

Conversations between students and visitors often cross-pollinate media and conceptual concerns, while raising questions relevant to artists at the beginning of their careers. Conversations are disseminated in print to engage the university-at-large and communities beyond Eugene, Oregon.

George and Matilda Fowler Lecture

Angela Washko: “Poking the Hive: Interventions in Unusual Media Environments”

Artist and activist Angela Washko will present several different strategies for performing, participating in and transforming online environments that are especially hostile toward women. She will introduce her long-term performative intervention “The Council on Gender Sensitivity and Behavioral Awareness in World of Warcraft” alongside several interventions, interviews, performances, written works and video games works she has created about the manosphere and online men’s seduction communities. She will additionally introduce her newest project Workhorse Queen, a documentary film about drag queen and former RuPaul’s Drag Race contestant Mrs. Kasha Davis and her life and career post-reality-television.

Angela Washko is an artist, writer and facilitator devoted to creating new forums for discussions of feminism in spaces frequently hostile toward it. Since 2012, Washko has operated The Council on Gender Sensitivity and Behavioral Awareness in World of Warcraft, an ongoing intervention inside the most popular online role-playing game of all time. Washko's most recent project, The Game: The Game,is a video game in which professional pick-up artists attempt to seduce the player using their coercive and often dangerous signature techniques sourced from their instructional books and video materials.A recent recipient of the Impact Award at Indiecade, a Franklin Furnace Performance Fund Grant, and a Frank-Ratchye Fund for Art at the Frontier Grant, Washko's practice has been highlighted in The New Yorker, Frieze Magazine, Time Magazine, The Guardian, ArtForum, The Los Angeles Times, Art in America, The New York Times and more. Her projects have been presented internationally at venues including Museum of the Moving Image, Kiasma Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles Museum of Contemporary Art, the Milan Design Triennale, the Shenzhen Independent Animation Biennial and the Rotterdam International Film Festival. Angela Washko is an Assistant Professor of Art at Carnegie Mellon University.
