The University Art Galleries (UAG) will mount a solo exhibition of paintings by Ed Moses, utilizing all three galleries and featuring works from the 1960s to the present. Cross-Section will trace the common thematic thread binding Moses’s prolific and continuous act of exploration. In so doing, the philosophical continuity of the artist’s disparate visual strategies will be framed, strategies the artist has repeated and contradicted, as his investigation into the painted form has changed direction or reversed course over the past five decades. The curatorial perspective, in turn, will provide a rhizomatic framework to Moses’s oeuvre – a genealogy of these strategies – in place of the conventional, chronological account typically used by institutions to situate an artist’s work within historical movements alone.


Taking The Discipline: A Herzog Film Series

Film still from Ballad of the Little Soldier 1984

As part of the UAG's continuing programming for the fall, the gallery is pleased to announce five screenings of the work of German director Werner Herzog. Among the many filmmakers to emerge out of the 1970's New German Cinema Movement--Margarethe von Trotta, Rainer Werner Fassbinder or Wim Wenders--Herzog arguably has enjoyed the most broad acclaim for his films. This is in spite of the fact that Herzog's work routinely came under attack by both the Left and the Right for his often heavily aestheticized sensibility that equivocated between documentary and fiction. This series shall present a non-chronological overview of some his lesser known "documentary" works to frame two films which are widely considered his masterpieces--Herz Aus Glas (1976) and Fitzcarraldo (1982).
