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
