The Queering of Architecture
Rachel Montgomery Paupeck | Tuesday, December 11, 4:00 pm | Cornerstone Screening Room
What is the role of the architect and what power systems are reinforced by the very claiming of that name? This lecture will look at what happens when rigid design thinking co-mingles with queer theory and an artist's practice. I will examine how I often frame my work through the didactic but empowering lens of basic queer theory principles: agency, proclaiming and the claiming of space, representation, and identity. I will trace this lecture's themes and contextualize them through my architectural and installation based practice.

Portraits of "A Noble Queen": The Romance of History in 18th-Century Indian Paintings
Berg Distinguished Professor Deborah Hutton | Wednesday, April 11 at 7 pm | Cornerstone Screening Room
The 16th-century Indo-Islamic queen, Chand Bibi, was valorized both during her life and posthumously for her heroic defense of the Deccan city of Ahmednagar against the invading armies of the Mughal Empire. During the 18th century, she became a common subject of paintings, which repeatedly depict her hawking on horseback. Indeed, the imagery is so standardized and ubiquitous that art historians have paid the paintings scant attention. But is Chand Bibi’s depiction really so straightforward and banal? If the defense of Ahmednagar is the event for which she is remembered, why are there no paintings of her in battle? Why does she emerge as a subject for painting a century after she lived? In this talk, Hutton analyzes portraits of Chand Bibi as a way of exploring the larger changes to Indian painting during the 18th century and the role of such images in creating what we might classify as a “shared historical imaginary” of the early modern Deccan

Jake Paron’s piece Alterne is a site-specific installation constructed out of a non-native grass species that covers much of the landscape surrounding institutions in the Colorado Springs area. Alterne explores how the lawn is used to represent nature. However, in an attempt to represent nature, the lawn substitutes the natural composition native to a specific site.
Jenny Welden's piece Heart of the Mountain is a site-specific installation representing the foundations of textile art through the use of non-fibrous materials. These materials create a network of interlocking fragments, demonstrating the dual contributions of the natural and the sacred in a textile image

Textiles as Magic Charms in Late Antiquity
Jennifer Ball ('91)
Wednesday, April 27 at 4:00 pm in Packard Hall, Room 21
Professor Jennifer Ball, art history major from the Colorado College class of 1991 will speak on Textiles as Magic Charms in Late Antiquity. Many textile fragments and sometimes entire garments from the Late Roman/Early Byzantine/Islamic period have been preserved in the dry climate of Egypt. These household textiles and items of dress show a continuity of beliefs outside and alongside the changing religious landscape of Egypt from the Roman pagan religions to Christianity, Judaism, and later, Islam.
After graduating from Colorado College, Jennifer Ball worked in the textile department of the Metropolitan Museum of Art and received a Ph.D. in art history from the Institute of Fine Arts of New York University. She has taught here at CC and is now Associate Professor of Byzantine and Islamic Art at Brooklyn College and the Graduate Center, City University of New York. Her book Byzantine Dress Representations of Secular Dress in Eighth- to Twelfth-Century Painting is an important work on the significance of costume in communicating identity and status in Byzantium. Her other studies focus on monastic costume and liturgical textiles. She has contributed to catalogs of major exhibitions at the Metropolitan Museum of Art and the current exhibition, designing identity: The Power of Textiles in Late Antiquity, at the Institute for the Study of the Ancient World in New York where she wrote on the magical significance of decoration on garments.

Colorado Springs-based artist Heather Oelklaus explores her subjects through historic photographic processes. Although Oelklaus employs vintage techniques, many of which date back to the beginnings of photography itself, her compositions frequently speak the language of abstract painting or motion pictures. But it is Oelklaus's combination of these extremely difficult technical processes with contemporary subjects and objects that

The title of the show suggests the singular nature of many of Oelklaus's images. In an era in which most of us understand photography as infinitely reproducible, her photographic works emerge from intensive processes that result in a single original image
Andrew Ramiro Tirado: Open
June 21 - September 28,
2014 at the Colorado Springs Fine Arts Center
For Open, Tirado has made a series of extraordinary large drawings that fill the FAC's magnificent, soaring El Pomar Gallery. The subject is what Tirado describes as one of our "primary tools" for connection and disconnection - the human hand. These exquisitely drafted images represent the hand in all its complex physicality, elegance, power, vulnerability, and expression. But these drawings are just the beginning of an exhibition that unfolds over time - the artist's process will be "open" and visible to viewers as Tirado creates a new, large-scale sculpture in the gallery throughout the show's duration. This is an experience that visitors will want to witness again and again.
Andy was also the Top Prize Winner in "Art on the Streets" in Colorado Springs.
Jean Gumpper Recognized in the Colorado Springs Business Journal

From its roots within the urban American experience of the 1960-70s, contemporary hip-hop culture has evolved into an expressive language that transcends cultural and national boundaries. Formerly subversive modes of expression, such as graffiti, rap, appropriation, and breakdancing have now become flexible strategies for personal and political communication that spans all racial, national, and economic groups. From March 24 – May 8
The exhibition component of the project will focus on three contemporary artists Ruben Aguirre iROZEALb, and Jaque Fragua. The artists employ strategies drawn from street art practices and hip-hop culture within the context of fine art. The exhibition will uncover the tensions created when graffiti motifs are removed from lived, public spaces and realized into two-and three-dimensional forms. Themes addressed

Huge Hands: Coburn Exhibit by Andy Tirado
Andy Tirado, the 3D arts supervisor for the Colorado College art department, has sculptured a series of massive hands using a very appropriate CC material – reclaimed redwood from the deck outside the studios at Packard Hall, which houses the art department.
Tirado provides tech support for the art department, supervises the sculpture shop, and teaches a spring woodworking adjunct class. He also will be teaching sculpture at the Anderson Ranch in Snowmass this summer.
The four sculptures, all of which depict right hands (Tirado is left-handed; he uses his right hand as a model) are enormous – one is 13 feet long and weighs more than 300 pounds – and take up nearly all the space in Coburn Gallery, where they have been on exhibit. However, the huge hands, constructed from redwood, alder, and steel, all materials Tirado scrounged for, will soon be moved to make way for a new exhibit.
