MUSEUM OF ART C









SEPTEMBER I OCTOBER




Btl the from theBas






Director Bawr



As the academic year begins, the Harn is
implementing our new five-year strategic plan
for 2008-2013. In developing the new plan, we


reaffirmed and embraced as our highest priority the
Integration of every aspect of the museum's work
into the academic fabric of the University of Florida.
In so doing, the museum will continue to develop
educational, enriching and enjoyable exhibitions,
collections and programs to better serve a wide and diverse audience both at UF and beyond.

Several of our summer and fall exhibitions have provided numerous opportunities to collaborate with
faculty and students from academic departments across the university. For example, in organizing
Almost Alice: New Illustrations of Wonderland by Maggie Taylor, Curator of Photography Tom
Southall worked with Curator of the Baldwin Library of Historical Children's Literature at UF's
George A. Smathers Libraries Rita Smith to present a corollary installation of rare editions of Lewis
Carroll's "Alice's Adventures in Wonderland" illustrated by various artists, including John Tenniel
and Arthur Rackham. Among the enlightening programs to be presented in conjunction with this hb i
exhibition is an evening of poetry readings by students in Professor Debora Greger's poetry class,
whose poems are inspired by Maggie Taylor's illustrations of Alice.

The exhibition Promises of Paradise: Staging Mid-Century Miami, organized by the Bass Museum
in Miami, was first introduced to the Harn by Professor Roy Graham, director of Historic
Preservation Studies in the UF College of Design, Construction and Planning. He was a consultant
to the Bass for the development of this exhibition and was instrumental in arranging to bring it to
the Harn. In conjunction with the exhibition, Professor Graham is offering an academic course at
the museum about the presentation of Florida's mid-century architecture and is working with the
Harn to present a major public workshop on this subject as well.

Please read this and upcoming issues of InForm to learn more about the museum's creative
partnerships with UF faculty and students and how these collaborations can enhance your
enjoyment of our offerings at the Harn Museum of Art.

Sincerely,

Rebecca Martin Nagy, Ph.D.
Director

Promises of Paradise: Staging Mid-Century Miami
October 11, 2008 January 25, 2009
Promises of Paradise: Staging Mid Century Miami is a groundbreaking exhibition devoted to the
architects, designers and urban planners of mid-20th-century Miami and their contributions to
American modernism. Through a selection of more than 200 extraordinary objects from 60 lenders,
the exhibition showcases the architectural designs, furniture, textiles and decorative arts of some
of South Florida's most talented and innovative designers, such as Alfred Browning Parker, Morris
Lapidus, George Farkas, Frederick Rank and Kay Pancoast. Their collective vision shaped the indoor
outdoor lifestyle for which Florida is known today. Although the architects of mid-century Miami are
widely known, the craftsmen and designers of decorative arts have been largely forgotten. Promises
of Paradise will be the first to showcase their efforts and contributions to mid-century design. The
exhibition incorporates a wide range of interdisciplinary fields, such as architecture, history of
design, city planning, historic preservation, historical studies and tourism management. A number
of scholarly programs are planned to complement the exhibition that will bring an interdisciplinary
audience to the University of Florida. The exhibition is accompanied by a 360-page book, "Miami
Modern Metropolis: Mid-Century Architecture & Urbanism in the Tropics," highlighting architecture
and design at mid-century. Promises of Paradise: Staging Mid Century Miami is organized by the
Bass Museum of Art, Miami Beach, and is made possible by the National Endowment for the
Humanities. This exhibition is made possible locally by ERA Trend Realty.

Cultivating Spirits: The Art of
Sepik River Yam Displays
Through September 21, 2008
Cultivating Spirits: The Art of Sepik River Yam
Displays focuses on the ritual display of yams that
occurs around the time of harvest in Sepik River
societies. For some people, yams are not only a
vital food source but also the embodiment of clan
ancestors and male power, which is promoted
throughout clan-based associations. Male members
W^F-
of these societies construct enormous pitched
roof houses for storage and display of yams and
adorn them with painted reliefs and freestanding
sculptures. Sepik River yams, which may grow up
to 12 feet in length, are decorated and displayed
in elaborate constructions. The essential purpose
of these ceremonies is to enhance the status of
male yam cultivators and, by extension, their clan
members and ancestors. Ultimately, the exchange '
and consumption of yams among clans reinforces
community partnerships. The exhibition will include
14 works of art from the Har collection and 11 on
loan from the C. Frederick and Aase B. Thompson
Foundation. Made possible by S.F.I.

Momentum: Contemporary Art
from the Harn Collection
Through May 12, 2009
Momentum represents works from the
museum's collection as well as significant
loans. The exhibition highlights the notion of
time, building on the ideas first introduced by
the French Annales School in the mid and
late 20th century. Exponents first proposed
the idea of longue duree, long-term historical
epochs that had a characteristic psychology.
Later they suggested that history and time,
including geological history and the more
immediate time of singular events or crises,
unfold in different modes or at different
speeds. Momentum explores these notions of
time as they are expressed in contemporary
art, focusing on enduring traditions, changing
cultures and radical breaks. Works highlighted
in the exhibition include a painting by Kehinde
Wiley, sculpture by Chul-Hyun Ahn and video
by Yael Bartana. Sponsored locally by the
Talking Phone Book with additional support
from the 150th Anniversary Cultural Plaza
Endowment.

Almost Alice: New Illustrations of
Wonderland by Maggie Taylor
Through October 19, 2008
Forty-five digital pigment inkjet prints by Maggie Taylor showcase
her innovative mastery of digital image manipulation and give fresh
insight into Lewis Carroll's "Alice's Adventures in Wonderland." Taylor's
composite images usually start with an original photographic portrait-
often a daguerreotype or tintype from the mid-19th-century setting of
"Alice" and its author Carroll. Her digital transformations bring out the
disconcerting fantasy that is at the heart of Carroll's playfully ironic
writing. Taylor's photographic prints, like Carroll's beloved text, engage
imaginative minds of all ages, delighting adults as much as children.
Her mastery of digital processes provides inspiration to working
contemporary artists and photographers pushing the boundaries of
new media. A national tour for the Ham's exhibition is planned in
conjunction with the publication of a new edition of "Alice's Adventures
in Wonderland" featuring Taylor's illustrations. This exhibition made
possible by a gift from a generous donor with additional support
provided by the Londono Family Endowment.









Cross-Currents in Recent Video
Installation: Water as Metaphor
for Identity
Through September 7, 2008
Cross-Currents presents recent video installations
by five international artists with ties to Africa:
Zwelethu Mthethwa, Ingrid Mwangi (with Robert
Hutter), Moataz Nasr and Berni Searle. The video
installations are large-scale with two of the works
being projected on three screens measuring as
large as 40 feet wide by 9 feet tall. Challenging and
thought provoking, each work on display uses water
as a symbol for many concepts, including family,
identity, violence and spiritual transformation.
Water is in a perpetual state of change and refuses
containment. This description of water can be
compared to the blending and dissolving of
categories of race, identity, cultural heritage and
a coherent family structure. Organized by Tufts
University Art Gallery, Aidekman Arts Center. This
exhibition is made possible locally by the Talking
Phone Book with additional support from the Sidney
Knight Endowment.

An Ocean of Devotion: South Asian
Regional Worship Traditions
Through October 19, 2008
Dating from the third century through the mid-20th
century, the 32 objects on view, some of which have
never been exhibited previously, are drawn from
the Har Museum's Asian collection. In the display,
organization and groupings of the works center on
specific deities and narratives that are significant
in the Hindu tradition. Each grouping juxtaposes
works of various media and time periods to illustrate
the continuity and change each figure undergoes
because of regional and historical circumstances.
An Ocean of Devotion is a result of collaboration
between the Har Museum and the Center for the
Study of Hindu Traditions (CHiTra) and is made
possible through the support of the Dr. Madelyn M.
Lockhart Endowment for Focus Exhibitions. This
endowment was developed to foster collaboration
between Har Museum curators and University of
Florida faculty to enhance teaching at the university.
This exhibition is curated by Vasudha Narayanan
(CHiTra and Religion Department, College of Liberal
Arts and Sciences) and Jason Steuber (Cofrin Curator
of Asian Art, Har Museum of Art).

Highlights from the Photography
Collection: University of Florida's
Photographic Legacy
Extended through February 22, 2009
The Harn is pleased to extend our exhibition of
these works by photographers who have contributed
so much to the creative life of the university.
The University of Florida has been an important
center for creative photography since the 1960s
and is especially noted for the experimental and
innovative work of its faculty and students. This
exhibition features the Har Museum's strong
holdings of works by influential faculty, including
Jerry Uelsmann (UF 1960-1997), Todd Walker (UF
1970-1977) and Evon Streetman (UF 1977-1999).
In addition, recent gifts by Robert Fichter highlight
this exhibition's inclusion of works by numerous
UF BFA and MFA graduates who have gone on to
impressive careers. The ongoing innovative energy
of the university's teaching program is further
demonstrated by a sampling of video/multimedia
works by current faculty members Barbara Jo
Revelle and Wes Kline. Made possible by the Sidney
Knight Endowment.


Highlights from the Modern Collection
Ongoing
This exhibition presents highlights from the
museum's holdings of modern American, European
and Latin American art spanning the mid-19th
century through the first half of the 20th century.
Featured works include landscapes, city views, mural
studies, portraits, figural studies and sculpture by
more than 40 artists. In addition, this exhibition
includes a special area devoted to works on paper,
such as charcoal and pencil drawings, pastels and
watercolors. Among the artists represented are 19th
century artists Claude Monet, Theodore Robinson
and Auguste Rodin, and 20th-century artists Milton
Avery, George Bellows, Charles Burchfield, Suzy
Frelinghuysen, Albert Gallatin, Childe Hassam,
Gaston Lachaise, Reginald Marsh, Georgia O'Keeffe,
Raphael Soyer and Hale Woodruff. Made possible by
the Eloise R. Chandler Program Endowment.

Highlights from the Asian Collection
Ongoing
The Harn Museum's Asian art collection is divided
into three geographically defined sub-collections:
Chinese art; Japanese and Korean art; and Indian,
Himalayan and Southeast Asian art. This ongoing
exhibition presents a selection of significant
works from all three sub-collections representing
a broad range of historical periods and genres.
Ceramics and sculpture are especially prominent
in the displays, which also include bronzes, jades,
lacquers, cloisonne enamels and paintings. The
objects on view represent only a fraction of the
Harn Museum's total Asian collection, which is one
of the largest and finest Asian art collections in the
southeastern United States. New works of art are
periodically rotated into the exhibition to keep it
fresh and interesting. Made possible by the Eloise
R. Chandler Program Endowment.

Highlights from the African Collection
Ongoing
The exhibition showcases the best of the Ham's
African collection, one of the largest African art
collections in the Southeast, drawing attention to
some recent acquisitions not previously exhibited at
the Harn. The exhibition emphasizes the historical
and geographical diversity as well as a range of
mediums now well-represented in the collection,
including wood sculpture, masquerades, ceramics,
textiles, metalwork (including jewelry) and
architectural elements. The exhibition also focuses
on works by identified artists or hands, including
works by Osei Bonsu, Ubah of Usufoia, Olowe of
Ise and Agbonbiofe Adesina. Made possible by the
Harn Program Endowment.

support

As I was finishing the edits for my InForm article focusing on the importance of bequests, I learned the news of the death of Dr. Margaret
J. Early. I decided to alter this information for Harn members and friends to include a tribute to this eloquent lady whose philanthropy
included provisions for the museum after her passing.

Margaret Early quietly demonstrated support for many causes that she held dear. She provided support for bright and capable students
whose means could hamper their pursuit of higher education, support for literacy and learning for all ages and support for international
cultural and academic exchange. What many did not know was her devotion to the Harn Museum of Art. She was an active participant in
the social and intellectual life of the museum, creating opportunities for curators, educators and the museum's visitors through her gifts.

As recently as a few weeks ago, Margaret consulted with me for advice about directing funds to the Harn. Her quiet and unassuming
manner dictated that with each charitable transaction she made, there be a clear understanding that she preferred anonymity. Therefore,
honoring her wishes, I won't enumerate the many ways she provided support for the Harn.

However, I will point out how Margaret serves as a model who demonstrates the essence of the message I had prepared regarding
planning for support of the museum. Through discussions with your family and financial advisors now, you can set into motion plans
that will benefit the Harn Museum of Art at the time of your death. It isn't a pleasant thought, but it is empowering, as Margaret Early
demonstrated so clearly to me, to define your legacy and to have a say in posterity.

In the 2009 fiscal year, a goal of the development office is the establishment of eight bequests to benefit the stated goals of the Harn
Museum of Art's capital campaign. Think about the work of the museum and how you can contribute benefits for posterity, just as our
dear and gracious friend Margaret Early did. Establishing a legacy is a very laudable enterprise. And so too was Margaret's decision to
designate the Harn as a recipient of memorial gifts after passing, demonstrating a way to involve others in philanthropy for the museum.

I am grateful for generous museum friends and donors. It is an honor to facilitate the amazing support that people give, which so greatly
enlarges the success of the Harn Museum of Art. Please contact me to join the Harn's Bequest Society and to define a meaningful legacy
in your lifetime.
