Snite Museum exhibit focuses on African experience

first_imgThe Snite Museum of Art’s new fall exhibit stretches through numerous rooms with large paintings, sculptures and even electric metal signs. Biographies of the many artists adorn the walls alongside their respective artwork, giving more of a story to each piece. Each work of art tells some kind of rich and brilliant story, typically etched into the history of the black experience.This exhibit, entitled “Solidary and Solitary: the Joyner/Giuffrida Collection,” was brought to the Snite Museum by curators Christopher Bedford and Katy Siegel. It celebrates black artists and will be up for viewing in the museum until December 15.According to a press release from the Snite Museum, this is a historical exhibition that offers a new perspective on issues people of African descent have faced throughout history.“This will be the first large-scale public exhibition to bring together a vital lineage of visionary black artists,” the press release said. “This exhibition offers a new perspective on the critical contribution black artists have made to the evolution of visual art from the 1940s through the present day.”Gina Costa, marketing and public relations manager for the Snite Museum, said this exhibition has been on display around the country and the former director of the Snite, Charles Loving, worked with the Baltimore Museum of Art to get “Solidary and Solitary” to Notre Dame. However, because of space limitations, the Snite Museum can only show part of the exhibit.“It was a great opportunity for the museum to display an exhibition that offers a new perspective of the critical contribution of black artists,” Costa said. “These works reveal how African artists have used abstraction as a visual vocabulary to talk about the issue of being black, social struggles and the international African diaspora.”The exhibit displays works from a wide variety of artists using several different mediums. Some include oil canvas paintings, re-draped canvas, sculptures, found fabric and more.Costa said the most notable artists are Sam Gilliam, Norman Lewis and Kevin Beasley.Quoting the Snite press release, Costa said “the entire collection is really of an unparalleled level and shows the power of abstract art as a profound political choice rather than just a stylistic preference for generations of artists.”According to the press release, “[the exhibit] will reveal a rich and complex history woven from the threads of artistic debates about how to embody blackness, social struggle and change.”Museum visitors will have the opportunity to meet the curators, Bedford and Siegel, during a free public reception with refreshments on the evening of Oct. 26.Costa also said she wanted to emphasize the accessibility of the Snite Museum to Notre Dame students.“Students often don’t know that the museum is free and open to the public. It’s their museum.”Editor‘s note: A previous version of this story incorrectly stated the role of Christopher Bedford and Katy Siegel in the Snite Museum’s new exhibition. Bedford and Siegel are the curators of the exhibition. The Observer regrets this error.Tags: Snite Museum, Snite Museum of Art, Solidary and Solitarylast_img read more

4-H20 Camp

first_imgA blend of fun and education, the Mitchell County 4-H20 day camp is designed to introduce students to the importance of water conservation and irrigation. The three-day camp is held every year, and will include a visit to the University of Georgia C.M. Stripling Irrigation Research Park in Camilla, Georgia, on June 22. “We can really educate any student, from the experienced to the inexperienced,” said Calvin Perry, Stripling research park superintendent and co-organizer of the event. The camp will be held Tuesday, June 21, to Thursday, June 23, and is open to all county 4-H clubs throughout Georgia. 4-H’ers from north Florida and southeast Alabama are also welcome to the water camp. Perry, Mitchell County UGA Cooperative Extension Coordinator Jennifer Grogan and Mitchell County 4-H Associate Debra Cox are working together to ensure that campers learn while having a wonderful time. Activities and speakers at the camp will cover topics including the amount of water it takes to make clothing and food, the best ways to conserve water and the importance of water irrigation to farmers. “We have different activities and speakers dealing with water every year, and they are always fun and educational,” said Grogan.“On the first day of the camp, the 4-H’ers will go to the Flint RiverQuarium in Albany, Georgia, where the educational manager, Melissa Martin, and her volunteers will teach classes about aquatic animals and their habitats. On the second day, 4-H’ers will travel to the Stripling research park, followed by a visit to Water World in Dothan, Alabama, on June 23,” Cox said.“Last year we had a record number of campers attend, and each year you never know which counties will come,” said Grogan. Around 160 campers attended last year. A similar turnout is expected again this year. Perry wants to assure parents that their children will have fun and be in great hands at the 4-H20 day camp this summer. “The youth and adults are going to have a great time in a safe environment while learning about water and other natural resources,” said Perry. For more information on the 4-H20 day camp, contact the Mitchell County Extension office at (229) 336-2066.(Kenzie Kesselring is an intern on the UGA Tifton Campus.)last_img read more

Regulators likely to require more climate risk disclosure from Australian coal firms

first_imgRegulators likely to require more climate risk disclosure from Australian coal firms FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailPrint分享Australian Financial Review:ASX-listed companies with high carbon exposures—such as Whitehaven Coal, Yancoal and New Hope Group—will have to ramp up their climate risk disclosures from the brief mentions in past financial statements.Minter Ellison climate lawyer Sarah Barker told The Australian Financial Review that Australian Securities and Investments Commission member John Price’s speech on climate risk disclosure on Monday was “almost the final piece in the regulatory puzzle.” Ms. Barker did not comment on individual companies.Whitehaven, Yancoal and New Hope, which are enjoying strong coal prices and Asian demand, make only cursory references to climate risk in their annual reports and barely discuss long-term implications of tougher action on climate change, which could hit Asian markets harder.Mr. Price said ASIC believed directors of ASX companies should take a “probative and proactive” approach to assessing climate change risk, and considered “unremarkable” a 2016 legal opinion by Sydney silk Noel Hutley that directors who ignored the risk could be in breach of their duties of care and diligence. He said ASIC would vet climate disclosures of ASX 300 companies.ASIC has previously said climate risk should be included in ASX companies’ operating and financial review if the risks are material. Mr. Price said they should go beyond strict legal requirements and consider “the general information needs of investors” and voluntary codes such the global Task Force on Climate-related Disclosures (TCFD) code.The TCFD code requires companies with climate-related risks to stress-test their business models and pay incentive structures against all reasonably plausible scenarios over short, medium and long terms, and disclose any material adverse or positive outcomes on asset values, such as potential “stranded assets,” in their financial statements.More: Whitehaven Coal, Yancoal, New Hope must ramp up climate disclosurelast_img read more
