Opening Reception: Friday, January 30 • 5-8 PM

Artists and designers use various elements to create compositions of diverse subject matter. For this project in foundation design, students created mixed media drawings that experimented with line, shape, value, color, texture, and scale. A primary focus was on creating the illusion of 3D forms and the development of space.

This multimedia group exhibition explores the convergences between South Africa’s struggle against Apartheid and the US Civil Rights movement struggle for voting rights through the Tyler Gallery’s joint collaboration with Syracuse Stage and ArtRage Gallery. In February, Syracuse Stage hosts an international production of Athol Fugard’s celebrated 1972 play, Sizwe Banzi is Dead. Set in a photographer’s studio, Sizwe Banzi depicts the construction and regulation of identity and how one man sheds this straitjacket. ArtRage Gallery marks the 50th anniversary of the legendary 1965 Selma to Montgomery march with an exhibition of Civil Rights era photographer Matt Heron’s images printed on fabric banners evoking the spirit of mass protest.

Though oceans separate them, both struggles hinged crucially on how those seeking freedom succeeded in visually defining who they were. On different continents, both struggles overlapped in time and echoed one another’s victories and set-backs too. 1964 saw Nelson Mandela sentenced to life in prison, but the next year saw the Selma marches. 1976 saw Sizwe Banzi’s original cast members jailed for their performances, but also the Soweto Uprising. Apartheid and Identity explores those historical events as well as the ways in which those struggles persist in our own day and are never truly “over.”

Apartheid and Identity presents sculpture, photography and quilted fabric as well as a variety of specially commissioned performances and screenings of award-winning films. Anchored in the Tyler Art Gallery at SUNY Oswego Metro Center in downtown Syracuse, Apartheid and Identity also travels when a portion of programming goes to the main campus, thereby joining the series of spring 2015 campus events titled Race, Place and Being.

Visiting Artist Series
Juana Valdes’ artwork is grounded in a multi-disciplinary practice that combines the process of printmaking, photography, sculpture and ceramic. It integrates the social-political discourse within the art object to analyze relationships between contemporary and historical imagery and their connection to the social political and economic dominance of the cultures that produce them and their impact on cultural memory. Valdez’ work traces, recollects, and records her personal experience as a Cuban-American immigrant.

Visiting Artist Series
Working within the legacy of abstraction in painting, Juan Iribarren is interested in that seemingly impossible and contradictory juxtaposition of geometry, the luminous and the atmospheric. Iribarren conceives his works to be experienced as abstract paintings, even though each one refers to a specific visual event to which it remains strictly faithful.
