Rembrandt Beyond the Brush

TheDescent from the Cross by Torchlight

October 27 – December 13, 2014

IDEA Space

 Closed November 19 – 23 and November 26 – 30.

 

Rembrandt Van Rijn’s fame as a painter was exceeded in his own lifetime by his renown as a master etcher. In an age and a culture dominated by the intellect, Rembrandt’s patrons treasured his ability to communicate the profoundly spiritual beauty of the earthbound and the tangible. He is greatly esteemed today for his sensitivity to the psychology of the common man. This deeply felt empathy is embodied in the thirty-five etchings that comprise this exhibition from the permanent collection of the Montgomery Museum of Fine Arts. Through a range of subjects—self-portraits, landscapes, depictions of Biblical stories and everyday life—Rembrandt captured the essence of mankind’s sense of the spiritual and personal, all portrayed within the context of the dynamic, contemporary society of seventeenth-century Holland.

Art of the Dutch Republic, taught by Rebecca Tucker Associate Professor in the Colorado College Art History Department, focuses on the Golden Age of Holland—a time of economic, cultural, and political growth. During this time, artists developed innovative styles and visual modes to depict life in the early modern era.

Throughout Art of the Dutch Republic students have spent many hours in I.D.E.A. Space examining and interpreting 35 Rembrandt images based on research.

The students have made their classroom experience practical by writing new interpretive text for the I.D.E.A. Space exhibition Rembrandt Beyond the Brush. The students will present their research and answer questions about specific works and genres within the exhibition at Tuesday’s event.

Student Presenters and Topics:

Thomas Euyang – Rembrandt’s Old Testament Scenes
Fiona Graham – Rembrandt’s Self Portraits
Bennett Krishock – Portraits by Rembrandt
Madelyn Santa – Street Scenes in Rembrandt’s Prints
Mengyuan Wang – Rembrandt’s Landscapes
Teddy Weeks – Rembrandt and the New Testament

Extending the Line

Extending the Line

January 26 — March 7, 2015

A line represents the connection of two points in space, and as such represents a basic component of representation.  This act of joining gives a line a particular physical, social and metaphorical weight. Extending the Line explores the mathematical, kinesthetic, and poetic aspects of line. The exhibition considers line in multiple dimensions. In two-dimensional drawings and prints, the agency of line is foregrounded: what does it mean to trace connections between disparate elements? The exhibition then traces line as it migrates off the page into three-dimensional space through fiber arts: here line folds on itself to realize into sculptural form. Line extends through in time in video explorations, and into performance space through dance.

Extending the Line will take place in Colorado College’s two campus galleries. Artists featured in IDEA Space include: William Anastasi, Herbert Bayer, Krysten Cunningham, Susan Hefuna and Luca Veggetti, Sol Lewit, Senga Nengudi, Abbie Miller and Anne Wilson.  The Coburn Gallery exhibition features Jean Gumpper and Jeanne Steiner.

  • A series of drawings and prints borrowed from the collection of the Colorado Springs Fine Art Center, provides the exhibition’s foundation. From Sol Lewitt’s geometric constructions to Herber Bayer’s graceful arcing forms to William Anastasi’s explorations of line in motion, this portion of the exhibition reveals the structural and expressive qualities of line in two dimensions.
  • Prints and works in fiber by Jean Gumpper and Jeanne Steiner will consider the qualities of line by considering the relationship of the incised line of woodblock prints to the three-dimensional woven forms.
  • Anne Wilson and Krysten Cunningham both create bas-relief images composed of fibers and woven elements that allow lines to emerge from planar surfaces, thus allowing line to realize from two dimensions into three.  Video pieces in which lines move, multiply and weave together extend both artists’ investigations by incorporating elements of process, motion, and time. Abbie Miller’s monumental sculptures composed of vinyl sheets that are zipped onto structural armatures trace the progression from line, to plane, to three-dimensional object.
  • Susan Hefuna and Luca Veggetti’s piece Notationotations  and Senga Nengudi’s RSVP series address line’s relationship to the body. Engaging elements of performance, their works tease out the relationship between representational line and lines created through bodily motions.
  • Extending the Line will also feature a soundscape component, wherein three musicians respond to the exhibition concept and specific pieces in the show.

Extending the Line will comprise a component of Colorado College’s Cornerstone Arts Week (January 26 -30) a fifteen-year-old endeavor that features a week of thematically related art, performances, lectures, and discussions. This year’s theme, What’s My Line?: explores connections between theater, dance, mathematics, and visual art.

Exhibition sponsored by: The National Endowment for the Arts, the Art Department/Stillman Fund for Exhibitions.

Considered a classic piece of absurdist theater, Line (1967) is a one-act drama about five people waiting in line for an unknown event.  Each of the characters uses their wiles in an attempt to be first in line, getting more and more vicious as the play continues.
