Harvard acquires new work by Kara Walker

first_imgIn 2007, the Harvard Art Museums mounted an exhibit by contemporary American artist Kara Walker in honor of the inauguration of Drew Faust, the University’s 28th president and a historian of the Civil War. “Harper’s Pictorial History of the Civil War (Annotated)” combined a series of lithographic reproductions from an 1866 anthology with Walker’s evocative silhouettes.An online description noted that the work showed that “the roots of racism in the United States were hardly eradicated with the abolition of slavery.” Ten years later, as Faust prepares to step down, Walker remains one of the most powerful and culturally relevant artists in the U.S., holding up a mirror to a country in which high democratic ideals exist alongside the lowest expressions of racism and hate. And now, her work is once again at center stage at Harvard.On Tuesday, the museums announced the acquisition of “U.S.A. Idioms,” a massive drawing and collage and the largest drawing in a collection of approximately 250,000 works. Walker created the image this past summer. The work depicts a series of figures, both African-Americans and their oppressors. Some are woven through the branches of a dead tree; others perch atop a dark stump. A torn Confederate flag waves from one branch. What appears to be a white flag waves from another.“This is a powerhouse of a work — provocative in its subject and scale and also, as a drawing, incredibly beautiful and technically exhilarating,” said Martha Tedeschi, the Elizabeth and John Moors Cabot Director of the Harvard Art Museums. “Given the teaching and learning mission of the Harvard Art Museums, and our legacy as a site for the study of great drawings from across time and place, it feels especially appropriate for us to bring this new and compelling work to Cambridge.”Kara Walker’s “U.S.A. Idioms”  “… is a powerhouse of a work — provocative in its subject and scale and also, as a drawing, incredibly beautiful and technically exhilarating,” said Martha Tedeschi.

Idioms” garnered almost as much attention as the show itself.“I roll my eyes, fold my arms and wait,” Walker wrote. “How many ways can a person say racism is the real bread and butter of our American mythology, and in how many ways will the racists among our countrymen act out their Turner Diaries race war fantasy combination Nazi Germany and Antebellum South.”The artist has been a regular visitor to campus in recent years. In 2014 she spoke at the Radcliffe Institute for Advanced Study. In October, she received the W.E.B. Du Bois medal “for art that refuses to tell a simple story about this country’s history or present,” said Tedeschi, who introduced the award.“I seemed to have made a reputation for saying a lot on paper and not a lot out loud,” said Walker during the event. “I will keep that tradition alive. But I do want to thank you very much for this honor.”In 1997, Walker was awarded a “genius” grant from the MacArthur Foundation, which praised her installations as “graphic and violent tableaus that explore the vestiges of sexual, physical, and racial exploitation in a challenging manner.”One example of that vision is “A Subtlety,” Walker’s 2014 installation in a defunct Domino sugar refinery in Brooklyn, N.Y. Crafted from 80 tons of granulated sugar, the work — a giant sculpture of a naked black woman in the pose of a sphinx — drew thousands of art lovers to New York and inspired countless online viewings.Harvard holds several early works by Walker, including prints, textual prints, silhouette works, a pop-up book, and a linocut, but nothing to match the scale or technique of the newly acquired piece.“Kara Walker has been on my top five list forever,” said Mary Schneider Enriquez, the Houghton Associate Curator of Modern and Contemporary Art, who, with curator Edouard Kopp, helped the museums secure “U.S.A. Idioms.”The piece is a “masterpiece of intimacy and scale,” she added.Kopp noted Walker’s sense of art history. “U.S.A. Idioms,” he said, pays homage to Francisco Goya’s “The Disasters of War,” a series of 82 prints created between 1810 and 1820 that depict scenes of death and despair.Similar sensibilities link the two artists, Kopp said. While Goya was considered an artist of the Enlightenment, he “looked not just at the light but the darkness of the human spirit, and [at] what can happen when reason sleeps. Something similar could be applied or brought to the reading of Walker’s work.”Curators are still finalizing a plan for installation of the new piece. It will likely be displayed on its own, said Enriquez. “There are only a couple of places in our building where the ceilings are high enough.”last_img read more

NDVotes promotes voter registration, education in midterms season

first_imgEditor‘s note: Throughout the 2018 midterm election season, The Observer will sit down with various student organizations and professors to discuss political engagement and issues particularly pertinent to students. In this first installment, News Editor Natalie Weber speaks with NDVotes about their plans for the semester.When organizers revived NDVotes in anticipation of the 2016 presidential election, they envisioned it as a three semester endeavor ending in the fall of 2016.Now, almost three years since its inauguration, the non-partisan organization continues to promote political engagement in the Notre Dame community and beyond, Rosie McDowell, who advises the group through the Center for Social Concerns, said.“There was so much energy after [the election] that all the students involved at that time were like ‘No way, we can’t let this go,’” McDowell said. “So I think as … a lot of political scientists have reported, this midterms season seems especially important … maybe not unique to our campus or students in general, but I think there’s a lot of energy and engagement in the political process right now [and] in the voting process right now.”With the approach of midterm elections, the group plans to focus on voter registration and education both at the University and in South Bend, NDVotes co-chair and senior Kylie Ruscheinski said. Alongside the Center for Social Concerns, NDVotes is sponsored by the Rooney Center for the Study of American Democracy and the constitutional studies minor.“A big part of the NDVotes mission is it’s not just registration — it’s being active throughout,” Ruscheinski said. “So that’s why the midterms season is also good to push this. It’s not just a big election every four years. It’s constant engagement.”The organization will continue its Pizza, Pop and Politics series throughout the semester, in addition to engagement events such as a midterm results watch party. It also plans to facilitate voter registration in both South Bend and at Notre Dame through tabling at local events.“We’re really trying to get every dorm represented so there’s a point of contact in every dorm that is well-versed in how to register, how to get your absentee ballot and I think that’s a big push this year,” sophomore Rachel Sabnani, chair for dorm liaisons, said.The organization also includes representatives from several student organizations, including student government, the Notre Dame Right to Life Club and GreeND, amongst others.“I would say a powerful thing about the task force and a lot of student organizations on campus is that no matter what beliefs have been brought to the table by that wide spectrum of beliefs, we’re all sitting at the table because we believe Notre Dame students can and should make an impact on politics through their vote and in being informed,” Ruscheinski said. “So yes, the views might be different, but they’re all in the room together and we’re all working on getting certain topics out to the entire student body.”By representing and bringing together various political organizations, members of NDVotes share a common goal of promoting political engagement amongst younger generations, sophomore and co-chair Michael Marotta said.“We feel that the work we’re doing is really important because as of right now, our generation and the generation before us are the ones who are going to be the most impacted by decisions that politicians are making today,” he said. “And as we’re growing in number, our generation is becoming the driving force in the electorate — in the present and in the future.”Disenchanted by the current political climate, many young people disengage from the political process, junior Sheila Gregory, chair for community outreach, said.“A lot of young people feel like voting isn’t a way to have their voice heard, so they’ve just kind of sworn off the political process altogether because they’re like ‘These people don’t represent me,’” she said. “And then I think what you saw in 2016 with several close races, all over the country, within the presidential itself and several states was within a percent, people can really see how voting impacts elections.”As a senior and task force member, Prathm Juneja shares Gregory’s concerns. A member since his freshman year, Juneja said he sees a connection between the work of NDVotes and the University’s mission.“I think it’s fair to say that people in our generation seem to be growing more distant from political issues, and that really concerns me,” he said. “And I think that’s a real concern on an elite college campus like Notre Dame, where our mission as a university is to raise students who will do good for the world.“If you’re not thinking about politics, if you’re not thinking about world issues, or American issues or the issues of people who weren’t nearly as lucky as us to get here then all that work is for nothing.”Tags: 2018 midterms, Election Observer, NDVoteslast_img read more

To make this decision, you typically weigh factors like temperature, wind, precipitation and the forecast. Ruffwear offers five different winter dog coats, taking all of the same weather factors into account, to make sure that your dog can enjoy inclement weather outings as comfortably as you.FEATUREDIMAGERuffwear-Apparel-ProductComparisonHere’s a summary of our dog jackets and a handy comparison chart to make your decision easier, based on your adventure plans.Climate Changer™ClimateChanger_BurntOrangeAs you layer for a cooler weather, one consistent go-to is a soft, warm fleece layer.

U.S. Chief of Naval Operations Admiral Jonathan W. Greenert Visits Chilean and Peruvian Navies

first_img Admiral Greenert’s visit to Peru The Chief of Naval Operations (CNO) of the U.S. Navy, Admiral Jonathan W. Greenert, visited the Chilean Navy and the Peruvian Navy in mid-January to discuss bilateral and defense issues. The U.S. delegation also traveled to the headquarters of the Chilean Navy in Valparaíso, where Greenert officially greeted Larrañaga, followed by a working meeting that included the participation of other Naval authorities. “These types of visits, in addition to deepening professional relationships, also increase the experience of both Navies, which has recently been reflected in the range of joint exercises carried out, such as Unitas, RIMPAC and PANAMAX, among others,” the Chilean Navy announced in a press release. During his visits to Lima and Iquitos on January 14-15, Admiral Greenert met with Defense Minister Pedro Cateriano, the Commander General of the Peruvian Navy, Admiral Edmundo Deville del Campo, and other high-ranking Military officials. Greenert recognized the work of Peru’s Navy, which he called “one of the best in the world,” highlighting “the exceptional capabilities of Peruvian submariners.” According to Libreros, the Chilean Navy is one of the strongest institutions in Latin America. In the past 20 years, the Armed Forces of Latin America have sought to establish new missions and new ways to help their civilian populations. “The Navies are aware that they also have to participate in the discussion about their institutional missions and their research roles, because they cannot afford to get left behind the progress of many other armed forces.” The U.S. delegation also traveled to the headquarters of the Chilean Navy in Valparaíso, where Greenert officially greeted Larrañaga, followed by a working meeting that included the participation of other Naval authorities.

The U.S. delegation was also shown combat equipment and the capabilities of the Expeditionary Amphibious Brigade. Finally, they visited the Naval Aviation facilities at the Concón Naval Air Base, as well as the frigate Almirante Blanco, in Molo de Abrigo, where they were received by Commander of Naval Operations Rear Admiral Julio Leiva. International cooperation is important for each of these Naval forces. Strengthening ties between countries “You have a remarkable combination of science, technology, oversight and control. Your discipline and connection with the Emergency Committees is impressive,” Greenert wrote in SHOA’s guestbook, referring to the National Seismological Center (CSN) and the National Emergency Office (ONEMI), which work together to monitor and respond to strong earthquakes and the possibility of a tsunami. “The meeting served to strengthen cooperation between the navies and intensify collaboration in the areas of education and training,” Peru’s Ministry of Defense reported, adding that this was the first visit by a U.S. Naval chief in many years. At the Naval Hospital, Greenert had the opportunity to visit the U.S. Naval Medical Research Unit No. 6 (NAMRU-6), through which Peru and the United States are working together to prevent and treat tropical diseases. And in Iquitos, Greenert visited the facilities of the Naval Industrial Service (SIMA) and the Nanay Naval Base, where he boarded one of the mobile social inclusion platforms (PIAS) that the Navy uses to provide healthcare services to coastal populations. Greenert, upon completing his speech, traveled to the Ministry of Defense, where he met with Minister Jorge Burgos, and the Commander in Chief of the Navy, Admiral Enrique Larrañaga. There, they discussed the excellent relations between the two governments and touched on various areas of cooperation in the Naval field. They also spoke about research, development and the use of biofuels. Both navies have been seeking greater security and lower costs for energy supplies since 2010, according to Infodefensa. The Chief of Naval Operations (CNO) of the U.S. Navy, Admiral Jonathan W. Greenert, visited the Chilean Navy and the Peruvian Navy in mid-January to discuss bilateral and defense issues. “The relationship between these three Navies [Chile, Peru and the United States] is in the process of building mutual trust, through work on joint tasks and with a promising future in terms of research, new technologies and human resources. Without question, this is the future not only for their Navies, but for the whole concept of Armed Forces.” IT’S VERY IMPORTANT … BUT WE WILL NEVER TRUST OUR RELATIONSHIP WITH CHILE, OUR FEELINGS BECAUSE OF WHAT HAPPENED WITH CHILE ARE AND WILL ALWAYS BE VERY HURT BECAUSE OF THE WAY CHILE ABUSED IT’S POWER AGAINST AN UNARMED COUNTRY. I’M SORRY BUT THAT’S HOW I FEEL AND DON’T WANT ANY WARS WHERE IN THE END NO ONE “WINS”… I want to learn more about the accident in Pucaran. Mr. WONG, you need to be specific, or are you speaking for the Peruvian-Bolivian Confederation, I remind you that the Chileans freed thousands of Chinese that you had as slaves working the guano fields in shackles and chains. Don’t gloss over history, sir. In order to lie and eat fish, you have to be very careful. “The relationship between these three Navies [Chile, Peru and the United States] is in the process of building mutual trust, through work on joint tasks and with a promising future in terms of research, new technologies and human resources. Without question, this is the future not only for their Navies, but for the whole concept of Armed Forces.” Strengthening ties between countries Chile is considered one of the most earthquake-prone countries in the world, and has had at least 80 earthquakes since colonial times, some of which have been accompanied by tsunamis.

Senate chairman introduces ‘skinny’ defense bill that deletes bank proposal

first_imgThe chairman of the Senate Armed Services Committee has introduced a “skinny” version of the annual defense authorization bill; that measure does not include a contentious plan to provide banks with the same rent benefits that credit unions now receive on military bases.In introducing the bill this week, Sen. James Inhofe (R-Ok.) said he wants to guarantee that Congress enacts the annual defense bill, as it has for the past 58 years.He said he introduced the “skinny” bill that strips away contentious policy issues in case House and Senate conferees cannot reach agreement on the larger bill.The new bill is just 68 pages long; the annual defense measure the Senate passed is almost 2,000 pages. continue reading » ShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblrlast_img read more

STOP! In the name of regret: Handling stop payment requests for recurring debits

first_img ShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr We’ve all been there… January first rolls around and our brains jump into overdrive thinking about all the things we are going to accomplish in the coming year. Whether it’s joining a gym to get back in shape, taking that pilates class we’ve been eyeing for months or registering for a meal delivery service in our never-ending quest to eat healthier, we have all signed up for something that felt like a great idea in the post-New Year’s haze of optimism.  But, by March, reality sets in, old habits take over and we know there just aren’t enough hours in the day to do all the things we want.Your members are no different. Complaints about how the yoga studio down the street just keeps billing every week no matter how many times you tell them to cancel are not that uncommon this time of year. It is important for credit unions fielding these types of complaints to be aware of their responsibilities when receiving stop payment requests for recurring debits from a member’s account.Recurring debits, or preauthorized transfers as they are known under Regulation E, are those transfers that happen on a regular basis to a member’s deposit account. They can occur weekly, bi-weekly, monthly or in any other interval as long as the interval is the same each time. They can also vary in amount from transfer to transfer. The key is that they happen regularly without the member having to do anything each time. If your credit union receives a request to stop a recurring debit, there are specific rules that must be followed. continue reading »last_img read more
