Videographic Frankenstein

September 26 12:00 am

An Exhibition of Creative and Scholarly VideoCurated by Shane Denson, Assistant Professor of Film & Media Studies Commemorating the 200th anniversary of the publication of Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein in 1818, Videographic Frankenstein reflects on the novel’s visual legacy across more than a century of adaptation in film, television, and other media. The exhibition foregrounds scholarly and creative work that utilizes digital video for a self-reflexive analysis of moving-image media. This self-reflexive methodology is particularly appropriate for the study of Frankenstein and its many cinematic adaptations: the cinema itself works by stitching together “dead” photographic traces of the past…

J. Fred Weintz and Rosemary Weintz Art Lecture Series | Molly Nesbit

November 1 5:30 pm - 7:00 pm

Light in Buffalo:  When Foucault Kept Manet in Mind Michel Foucault’s view of Manet’s Bar at the Folies-Bergère provided the conceptual center for his lecture at the Albright-Knox Gallery in Buffalo in the spring of 1970, the first year he taught at SUNY Buffalo.  His thinking did not stop at the picture frame that year, or any other year, and the ways in which the work of art occupied his mind bears re-examination.  Foucault did not flatten his thinking when…

J. Fred Weintz and Rosemary Weintz Art Lecture Series | Malik Gaines

March 14, 2019 5:30 pm - 7:00 pm

Statues of Limitations In art as in government, representation and abstraction serve as two modes of the same linguistic operation, rather than two sides of a radical break. This sense of continuity offers up abstraction as a premise for rethinking the notion of U.S. representative democracy, directing attention to its separating, reducing, isolating, and extracting projects. This talk-in-progress takes up this continuity in considering contentious monuments in public spaces, future ruins that provocatively suspend the regulation of subject and object.…

J. Fred Weintz and Rosemary Weintz Art Lecture Series | Michael Ann Holly

May 2, 2019 5:30 pm - 7:00 pm

Back of the Painted Beyond Some thoughts on connections between current art historical theory and mid-twentieth-century phenomenological thinking, illustrated by way of a few examples of early modern Northern works of art, mostly gleaned from wandering through the Kunsthistorisches Museum in Vienna.  How might we talk about the correspondences, even conversations, among paintings that elude art historical labeling and contextualizing? Paintings are materially limited but metaphysically limitless.  How do backgrounds, for example, intimate all that lies beyond that which is…
