EUGENE, OR (April 11, 2017) –  The Jordan Schnitzer Museum of Art, located on the University of Oregon campus, presents the exhibition “Diálogos,” on view through October 8, 2017.  The exhibition features recent acquisitions of art from Latin America, the Caribbean, and the United States.

On view as part of Dialogos

Organized by Cheryl Hartup, Associate Curator of Academic Programs and Latin American Art, “Diálogos” — the Spanish word for dialogues— activates exchanges between art and artists, the viewer and the object, and the museum and the communities it serves. The exhibition features fifteen prints, photographs, kinetic sculptures, and mixed media objects by artists from Cuba, Colombia, Mexico, Peru, and the United States. 

“‘Diálogos’ began with the conversations I saw taking place between works of art, and I installed objects in pairs and small groups to reflect these interchanges,” says Hartup. “Each label begins with a question to start an exchange with the viewer.” › Continue reading

“An Irresistible Commodity: American Cinema and its Impact in Chile”

A Presentation by Dr. Fernando Purcell
Associate Professor at the Instituto de Historia, Pontificia Universidad Católica de Chile

This presentation will discuss the eruption of American cinema in Chile during the first half of the twentieth century–with its larger implications for the role of US films in cultural imperialism in Latin America. Hollywood cinema became an irresistible commodity that all Chileans valued regardless of their social position. Its social and cultural impacts were enormous and turned the United States into a new paradigm of modernity. For Chileans, the consumption of movies, fashions, and manufactured products from the United States provided a way to participate in this “American-style” modernity. But Chileans played a crucial role in these processes, influencing Hollywood’s star system and shaping, with their own preferences and rules of censorship, what was acceptable and desirable in Chile. › Continue reading
