Resistance as Power: A Curatorial Response to Under the Feet of Jesus
September 7, 2019 – February 23, 2020
Jordan Schnitzer Museum of Art, University of Oregon campus, Eugene

Museum Admission: $5 adults, $3 seniors, Free for children under 18, college students with ID, museum members
Website

The JSMA’s fourth “Common Seeing” exhibition supports the UO’s 2019-20 “Common Reading” of Under the Feet of Jesus by Helena Maria Viramontes. In the book, the resilient protagonist, 13-year-old Estrella, works in the hot California grape fields while navigating the realities of first love, financial struggle, family separation, and illness. For more information about the “Common Reading,” including upcoming university events, visit commonreading.uoregon.edu.

Two special loans from the Smithsonian American Art Museum (SAAM) by artists Emanuel Martinez and Domingo Ulloa anchor the exhibition. Martinez created Farm Workers’ Altar (1967) for the Catholic Mass held in Delano, California, at which labor activist César Chávez broke his twenty five-day fast in 1968. Ulloa, “The Father of Chicano Art,” painted Braceros (1960) after visiting a labor camp in Holtville, California. From 1942 through 1964, the U.S. government invited agricultural workers from Mexico for limited-duration assignments to relieve the worker shortage caused by World War II. Ulloa presented a sobering view of the reality of life for these braceros (from the Spanish for “one who works using his arms,” implying manual labor), who experienced poor working conditions, crowded living quarters, and other challenges while employed in the United States. These special loans provide historical and cultural touchstones for Viramontes’s 1995 novel and contemporary works from the JSMA’s permanent collection, including recent acquisitions by Ester Hernández, Victor Maldonado, and Lilliam Nieves.

Resistance as Power: A Curatorial Response to Under the Feet of Jesus is one in a series of American art exhibitions created through a multi-year, multi-institutional partnership formed by the Smithsonian American Art Museum as part of the Art Bridges + Terra Foundation Initiative.

 

Traditional Dress and Mexican Horseman (Charro) Equipment Exhibit
September 13 – October 26
Opening Reception: September 13
, 5:30-8pm, with music by Dúo Piel Canela
Springfield Museum (590 Main St), Springfield

Mexico’s modern folk dance tradition and dresses are a blending of elements from its Indigenous, African, and European heritage. Dance and dresses evolved drastically from 1520 to 1750 with the arrival of the Spanish and they continue to evolve. In this exhibit, you see a variety of modern day dance dresses from different regions of Mexico, including mostly Jalisco, Chiapas, and Veracruz.

The iconic Charro is representative of “La Mexicanidad” and is known worldwide as unique of Mexico and rightly so. Charreria is the national sport of Mexico and dates back to the 1500s when the Spanish brought horses and cattle. Charreria involves sportsmanship including skillful roping, rope tricks, talented horsemanship, and cattle work. UNESCO has inscribed Charrería as Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity. The Charro outfit, adapted from Spain to the Mexican landscape, includes boots, spurs, elaborate hand-sewn pants and shirts, belts, belt buckles, leather chaps, bowties, and the traditional Mexican sombrero. Many artisans in Mexico still make a living in certain aspects of the sport such as saddlery, silversmiths, belt buckle, and saddle hardware makers, making sombreros, boots, outfits, and ropes. The women’s participation in the sport symbolizes the role they played during the Mexican Revolution, a reference to the skilled and strategic horsemanship they displayed on the battlefield.

We are Neighbors, a play telling the true stories of Lane County immigrants
See below for various locations and times
FREE
Website

  • Tuesday, October 15, 5:30pm, UO Lundquist College of Business on the University of Oregon Campus
  • Thursday, October 17, 12 noon, UO class: Diasporas, Arabs/Muslims, and Alternative Expressions
  • Sunday, November 3, 4 pm, The SHEDD (868 High St), Eugene, hosted by Choose Kindness Project

We Are Neighbors, the touring version of Now, I Am Your Neighbor, is an original play telling the true stories of courage, hopefulness and resilience of immigrants and refugees living in Lane County. Originally produced by Community Alliance of Lane County (CALC), in partnership with Minority Voices Theatre (MVT), in fall 2017, the play was inspired by a piece created and performed 20 years ago.

The new play includes references from the original play but is primarily based on new interviews with members of some of the most targeted and marginalized groups living in the Eugene-Springfield area, including Muslims, undocumented immigrants, DREAMers, and Syrian refugees. These stories, generously shared, were woven together in a creative narrative by local playwright Nancy Hopps, in collaboration with a creative team. Originally directed by Carol Dennis of MVT, the play is produced as a staged reading by readers who are immigrants themselves or very close to the immigrant experience.

The performances are followed by a community discussion in which members of the audience are welcome to share their feedback, experience, and observations.

To host the play, contact neighborsplay@calclane.org.

 

“Latinx Voices” – An evening of dance centered on themes of cultural identity and social activism
Performed by Company Movimiento, under the artistic direction of Cynthia Gutierrez-Garner

Oregon Contemporary Theatre (194 W Broadway), Eugene
Tickets: $13-$18 (boxoffice@octheatre.org or 541-465-1506)   

In “Latinx Voices”, Company Movimiento Artistic Director and Choreographer Cynthia Gutierrez-Garner explores both personal identity as a Latinx artist, and the broader topics of social justice and activism. The evening of six contemporary modern and jazz dance works contain themes including cultural ritual as memorial, vulnerability at the center of the border detention crisis, and the connections that bind marginalized communities through conflict and grief.  Gutierrez-Garner seeks to use dance as a tool to promote cultural cognizance and to contextualize what it means to be American today.  In this way, she believes art can create space for questions and contemplation, and inspire dialogue for both the observer and performer.

The Very Little Theatre (2350 Hilyard Street), Eugene
Tickets: $5

Minority Voices Theatre presents a staged reading of the Spanish language play, La Gringa, by award winning playwright Carmen Rivera.

Once María is in Puerto Rico, she realizes that Puerto Rico does not welcome her with open arms. The majority of the Puerto Ricans on the island consider her an American – a gringa. If she’s a Puerto Rican in the United States and an American in Puerto Rico – she wonders if she belongs anywhere.

Directed by Victoria Quintanilla, this play explores the experience of finding oneself caught between two cultures and of finding an authentic identity regardless of nation, country, or cultural roots. The entire event will be presented in Spanish.
