Curatorial Collaborations

10 May 2019

Collaboration has the potential to promote dialogue, explore issues, expand perceptions, and unveil new meanings. University museums, repositories of visual and physical evidence, dedicated to cultural, artistic, and scientific knowledge, have access to vast intellectual and scholarly resources, that is, the faculty of the university itself. When the university museum provides an exhibition program that involves many disciplines, it transcends traditional ideologies and becomes a catalyst for collaboration.

The university museum is, in essence, a classroom in and of itself as well as an extension of the academic experience as a whole. In this presentation, I examine Daura Gallery’s curatorial collaborations between the museum, faculty, and museum studies students that seek to provide the type of boundary-free educational experience described through collaboration and, as such, have established relationship with academic programs in the arts, humanities, social sciences, and physical sciences intended to enrich the undergraduate experience.

About the presenter
Dr. Barbara Rothermel is the Director of the Daura Gallery at the University of Lynchburg and Associate Professor of Museum Studies. She received a PhD in Museum Studies from the University of Leicester for a dissertation entitled “The role of the university art museum as a catalyst for interdisciplinary collaboration”. In 2016, Dr. Rothermel was elected Vice President of University Museums and Collections (UMAC), one of 30 committees of the International Council of Museums (ICOM). The election took place at the ICOM Triennial Conference attended by more than 3,000 museum professionals from around the world. UMAC is a forum for all those working in, or associated with, academic museums, galleries and collections. Members of UMAC come from institutions of higher education in 56 countries worldwide. As Vice President she works on the development and implementation of strategic planning with specific responsibilities for conferences, the UMAC journal, and ad hoc committees on standards and best practices, publications and research.

Juno Gemes: The Quiet Activist, A Survey Exhibition 1979-2019

10 May 2019

Fiona Burton and Susan Vickery, Interim University Librarians, invite you and a guest to the exhibition opening of Juno Gemes: The Quiet Activist A Survey Exhibition 1979 – 2019 on Friday 10 May 2019 at 6pm.

Curators: Rhonda Davis and Kate Hargraves

To be opened by Dr Rod Pattenden, artist and art historian and Moshe Rosenzveig OAM, Festival Director, Head On Photo Festival

This survey exhibition is drawn from Juno Gemes’ extensive archive of photography, film and artist’s books along with national and international publications that feature her works. The exhibition presents a rare opportunity to view Gemes’ early experimental works in film and photography, together with the master prints contained within the celebrated publication The Language of Oysters, 1997, on display to the public for the first time. The overall parameters of the exhibition offer a broader view of Gemes’ social justice commitments over a lifetime’s work.

The spectacular forms of Bush Pieta, a finalist in the 2005 Blake Prize, is remarkable in its evocation of place, time and history − another five works from this series augments the installation. Gemes’ significant body of work Proof: Portraits from the Movement, 1979-2003, is recontextualised within this survey linking Gemes’ early works to her current practice.

The exhibition will also be promoted through the Head On photo festival which is running from the 15-20 May 2019. Visit
