ART SPEAKS!

Focus Series on the Vitality & Importance of Learning Through Contemporary Art 

Starting this fall, the Tarble will be re-envisioning the idea of the artist’s lecture by presenting a new series of gallery-based discussions that highlight and reveal the innovative practices of artists by re-focusing art as a living thing and artists as agents of choice. These artist-driven moments will move beyond the traditional talk and work to create an interactive and dynamic experience between the artist and participants, while investigating the purpose, intentions and narratives that drive these innovative creators and their creative practices.

Tuseday-Saturday, September 24-28, 2019 

 

In Conversation artist Anne Vieux will use Gallery 1104 as a pop-up working studio during her residency week during Tarble open hours. During the residency, she will co-facilitate three workshops with high-school-aged students and have her studio open for visitors on Saturday during EIU’s Family Weekend. 

 

Vieux’s artwork combines digital processes with painting processes and explores the effects of light, scale, and materiality through abstraction. Her process involves scanning holographic paper then pushing the limits of the image data through zooming, warping, and repetition. Vieux is an alum of EIU’s MA in Studio Art program.

As a way of creating continued dialogue found in this semester’s exhibitions the workshop and lecture led by Dr. Johnson will help facilitate actionable responses while critiquing assumed narratives of power.

The Justice Fleet is a is a mobile network of experiences that foster community healing through art, play, and dialogue. Johnson’s research and work focuses on identity negotiation, social justice and arts activism. Through the Justice Fleet, they have created mobile exhibits and social practice art projects that help re-frame and address issues bound up in implicit and explicit bias and practices of inequity by using empathy as a place of action to promote empowerment and healing.

ABOUT CAMILLE COMPO

Camille Compo was a long-time supporter of Women's Studies at EIU. She began her work life at EIU in the Office of Budget and Planning and retired in 2001 as the Administrative Assistant to the Vice President of External Relations. She was an early member of the Women's Action Coalition and was involved with the first Women's History and Awareness month. The visionary work of the Women's Studies Program at EIU inspired Camille greatly. The Women's Studies Program honored Camille Compo for her many contributions to the program in 1984 as their Woman of Achievement. 

Camille loved theology, the arts, poetry, and fresh mint in her tea. She was often seen at Tarble and Doudna events. She was a great supporter of EIU; and after retiring, volunteered at the Neal Welcome center until declining health led her to cut down on her activities and eventually move to an assisted living community in Mattoon. Even after she moved to Mattoon, Camille was occasionally able to attend some of the annual Women's Studies Programs.
