“U.S. Presidents and the Mona Lisa”
Sept. 8 through Dec. 5, 2014

Opening Reception Tuesday, Sept. 11 at 7 p.m.

WHO:
Born in Rockdale, Texas, in 1958, Morgan was diagnosed with schizophrenia and found to be intellectually disabled at age 18. His work was “discovered” in the late 1980s while he was a patient at Austin State Hospital. Today, he lives independently in Austin with the support and oversight of a conservator. Morgan’s paintings have been included in numerous museum and gallery exhibitions including The Smithsonian American Art Museum in Washington, DC, the Art Brut Collection Paris and the California African American Museum in Los Angeles.

WHAT:
The first solo exhibition in California of self-taught, Texas-based artist Ike Morgan, “U.S. Presidents and the Mona Lisa” features 16 unframed paintings on paper and two larger works on canvas, reflecting Morgan’s enduring interest in making pictures of George Washington and Mona Lisa. In these dazzling portraits, composition and coloration are held in an insistent tension while background flourishes and random hatchings threaten to overwhelm the figures they support, resulting in an energetic push-pull between abstraction and representation. Noted arts journalist Dana Boutin is writing a scholarly text in support of the exhibit and Fine Art student Brian Tarpey is writing a parallel piece as an artistic counterpoint. Additional programming includes a presentation by artist Althea Thauberger and conversation with author Juli Carson.

WHERE:
Art Center College of Design | South Campus
Hutto-Patterson Exhibition Hall
870 South Raymond Avenue, Pasadena, Calif. 91105

WHEN:
Exhibition: Sept. 8 through Dec. 5, 2014

WHO:
Art aficionados, science enthusiasts, members of the community, students, industry professionals and the general public interested in the intersection of art, science and history. 

WHAT:

Works in REALSPACE include paintings from James Griffith’s Natural Selection series, rendered using tar from the La Brea Tar Pits; Rebeca Méndez’s large-scale video CircumSolar, Migration 3, 2013, an Icelandic documentation of her ongoing research on the migration of Arctic Terns; Jennifer Steinkamp’s architectural projection 6EQUJ5, 2012, a reflection on the panspermia theory of life’s introduction to planet Earth; Santiago V.

Among additional included works are a stunning group of astronomical engravings from the 1806 book Astronomy Explained Upon Sir Isaac Newton’s Principles by astronomer, instrument and globe-maker James Ferguson; excerpts from the 1925 silent movie Wunder der Schöpfung (The Wonder of Creation); and haunting imagery encircling the asteroid Vesta as seen from NASA/JPL’s orbiting Dawn spacecraft.

WHERE:

WHEN:
Opening reception Friday, October 3rd, 7–10pm
Exhibition on view October 4–January 18, 2015

WHY:              
“Nineteenth-century art’s deconstruction of illusion in pictorial space and its ultimate relocation of aesthetic experience…helped create a cultural Weltanschauung, a world view shaped by the gradual decline of supernatural theories about the world and the rise of scientific ones,” said Stephen Nowlin, Williamson Gallery director and the curator of REALSPACE. “The true kinship of art and science is to be found outside stereotypes thought to separate them, and instead in the spark of insight that can result when each discipline is allowed and encouraged to ignite the other.”

HOW:             
The reception and exhibition are free and open to the public.
