THE RADICALIZATION OF A '50s HOUSEWIFE: A SOLO PROJECT BY BARBARA T. SMITH (OPENING RECEPTION)

The Radicalization of a 50s Housewife revisits Barbara T. Smith's transgressive artwork Birthdaze, produced in 1980 and later performed on the occasion of the artist's 50th Birthday. Combining elements of Catholic hagiography with Eastern Tantric ritual, the performance symbolized Smith's journey away from 50s society life towards 60s feminism, avant-garde culture and beyond.  In addition to the original artwork, this exhibition features archival material documenting Birthdaze's making, illuminating Smith's political and aesthetic intentionality for the first time.   The Radicalization of a 50s Housewife further positions Birthdaze as the result of Smith's life's work – both as a feminist and an artist – beginning in the conservative post-war period of the 50s, through the cultural revolution of the 60s/70s and culminating in the nascent moment of the Reagan era, when the culture wars were looming on the horizon. Curated by Juli Carson

...AND EUROPE WILL BE STUNNED: A FILM TRILOGY BY YAEL BARTANA (OPENING RECEPTION)

The UAG is proud to present the US premiere of Yael Bartana’s ... and Europe will be stunned.   This exhibition was the official Polish participation at the 54th International Art Exhibition in Venice. It is also the inaugural event to be held in the Contemporary Arts Center Gallery at UC Irvine's Claire Trevor School of the Arts.  Bartana’s trilogy aesthetically references propaganda films of the 1930s, which, when presented as a gallery installation, collectively deconstruct a group of ideological positions that contributed to the founding of Israel – European anti-Semitism, Colonialism, Socialism, and Zionism.  In so doing, the historical origin and development of Zionism, vis-à-vis Israel’s contemporary political stance toward the Palestinians, is scrutinized.  Key to the installation is the viewer’s geographical transportation from Israel/Palestine to Poland, which is enacted in Bartana’s films through a fictional political movement, “The Jewish Renaissance Movement
