Dianna Frid: “It Takes Time”
October 21
4:00 p.m.
Lawrence Hall 177

University of Oregon Fall 2021 Visiting Artist Lecture Series  

Presented by the Department of Art and Center for Art Research

This lecture will also live stream on the UO IS Media Services YouTube.

Dianna Frid will share her interest in the wormholes she has found in ancient books. Using these material texts as a springboard, she will discuss her textile and related works and also speak of time: the time it takes to make something, the rhythm of work, the time of minerals and asteroids.

Dianna Frid is an artist working at the intersection of material texts and textiles. Her artist’s books and mixed-media works make visible the tactile manifestations of language. In her work, embroidery is a prominent vehicle for exploring the relationships between writing and drawing, and the overlaps of transcription, translation, and legibility. Frid was born in Mexico where she was first exposed to textiles as complex codes of material writing. This point of reference helps her situate her work alongside lineages that embrace art and needlework without pitting them in hierarchical opposition. Time, Rhythm, Process, and Matter are never in opposition. English is Dianna Frid's stepmother tongue. She does not check boxes. Frid is Director of Graduate Studies and Professor at University of Illinois at Chicago, Art Department.

Lumi Tan: “Invisible Rooms: Performance and Institutions” - Critical Conversations lecture
October 28
4:00 p.m.

University of Oregon Fall 2021 Visiting Artist Lecture Series  

Presented by the Department of Art and Center for Art Research

Live on Zoom and on the Department of Art Facebook.

Lumi Tan will speak about the ways in which performance practices shift institutional value systems through her work curating time-based art for the white cube gallery, black box theater, and most recently, the computer screen. Thinking of issues of process, intimacy, documentation, audience and site, Tan will connect this current work to the historical context of The Kitchen and the role of small scale institutions in the contemporary art ecosystem. 

Lumi Tan is Senior Curator at The Kitchen in New York, where she has organized exhibitions and produced performances with artists across disciplines and generations since 2010. Most recently, Tan has worked with Kevin Beasley, Baseera Khan, Autumn Knight, and Kenneth Tam. Previously she curated projects with artists including Gretchen Bender, Meriem Bennani, Liz Magic Laser, The Racial Imaginary Institute, Sahra Motalebi, Sondra Perry, Tina Satter/Half Straddle, Anicka Yi, and Danh Vo and Xiu Xiu. Prior to The Kitchen, Tan was Guest Curator at the Fonds Régional d’Art Contemporain Nord Pas-de-Calais in France, director at Zach Feuer Gallery, and curatorial assistant at P.S.1 Contemporary Art Center. Her writing has appeared in The New York Times, Artforum, Frieze, Mousse, Cura, and numerous exhibition catalogues. She was the recipient of 2020 VIA Art Fund Curatorial Fellowship.

This lecture is made possible by the Critical Conversations program, a partnership between the Ford Family Foundation and the University of Oregon Department of Art's Center for Art Research.
