EMU Visual Arts Team is pleased to welcome Anne Margratten to the EMU Adell McMillan Gallery. Anne's unique exhibit will be on view starting February 15th in the gallery.

Artist statement and bio:

"To envelop something completely requires a kind of accidental reciprocity. As we are bound or swaddled, we impress our form into the thing that engulfs us. Even the passive presence exerts some agency."

In her exhibition, Envelop, Anne Magratten presents three bodies of work comprised of painted folding screens, queer still life paintings, and farm to table drawings. Each group engages and rejects key norms of space, intimacy, and monetary transactions. Within her series Gathered Horizons painted screens divide the physical space of the room while presenting the visual spaces of landscape and abstraction. In her series of still life paintings How Queer, Dear, she toys with visual conundrums specific to modern sexuality, gender, reproduction, and queer identity. Employing humor and formalism she cloaks the taboo in the subtle. In You Pick, drawings are dispersed into the economy using the model of the Oregon farm & flower stand. Trust, empowerment through self-service, and the elimination of interposing parties mimic the core components of the Northwest grassroots economy. 

All works are intended to question and open the boundaries between art and the decorative. Anne is particularly interested in the concept of ownership and in the way materials, location, gender, and class shape the value of art objects.

Anne Magratten is a graduate of Mills College and received her MFA in Studio Art at The University of Oregon in 2015. She is an Instructor of Painting and Drawing at Linn Benton Community College. Additionally, she offers college drawing and painting courses within Oregon prisons. She is a member of the Eugene based artist collective Tropical Contemporary. Additional aspects of her art practice can be seen on her website http://www.annemagratten.com and the website of the collective https://www.tropicalcontemporary.space.

February 19 noon–1:15 p.m.
William W. Knight Law Center, 110

Cheryl Harris is presented in partnership with the UO African American Workshop and Lecture series, sponsored by the President's Office and faciliatated by the Division of Equity and Inclusion, and the  Derrick Bell Lecture. 

Harris is the Rosalinde and Arthur Gilbert Foundation Chair in Civil Rights and Civil Liberties at UCLA School of Law where she teaches Constitutional Law, Civil Rights, Employment Discrimination, Critical Race Theory and Race Conscious Remedies.

The interconnections between racial theory, civil rights practice, politics, and human rights have been important to her work.  She was a key organizer of several major conferences that helped establish a dialogue between U.S. legal scholars and South African lawyers during the development of South Africa’s first democratic constitution.  This work played a significant role in the production of her acclaimed and influential article, “Whiteness as Property” (Harvard Law Review).

She has produced groundbreaking scholarship in the field of Critical Race Theory, particularly engaging the issue of how racial frames shape our understanding and interpretation of significant events like Hurricane Katrina—(“Whitewashing Race”, in California Law Review), admissions policies (“The New Racial Preferences” in California Law Review)(with Carbado) and anti-discrimination law (“Reading Ricci: Whitening Discrimination, Race-ing Test Fairness” in UCLA Law Review) (with West-Faulcon).

She has also lectured widely on issues of race and equality at leading institutions here and abroad, including in Europe, South Africa, and Australia, and has been a frequent contributor to various media outlets on current events and cases involving race and equality.

February 19 2:00 p.m.–2:50 p.m.
Erb Memorial Union (EMU), Duck Nest (041)

We live in a society in which physical appearance is held in high regard. Every day we can scroll and see our social media full of new health challenges, trending diets, or new life changing product. Women, and men, will go to extreme lengths to meet standards for youth and beauty. In our daily lives, we spend time, attention, and money, chasing unrealistic standards. Where do these standards come from? What is the cost of meeting them? And when does chasing an “ideal” body get in the way of living healthy lives? How can we prioritize our health while loving who we are not after a transformation, but for who we are today. These are some of the questions we will be covering. To this end, we will examine the overt and unspoken rules that dictate how we should look and feel in order to redefine what it means to be “healthy”. This workshop is part of All Sizes Fit programming and is free and open to UO students, faculty, and staff.
