Mindscapes VIII: Metamorphosis

Susan Schur returns to the Gutman Library with her paintings, Mindscapes VIII: Metamorphosis. Ms. Schur utilizes various techniques of employing oil paint on paper and board to create works that provide exciting, multi-layer visual experiences, with each viewer becoming an active participant in the realization of the vision presented. She invites the viewer to continually move through the process of assimilation, review, modification, and reinterpretation while engaging with her work. In this manner, the abstract shapes in Ms. Schur's paintings continually evolve, and evolve somewhat differently, for each viewer. Gazette Classification: Art/Design. Exhibitions.

Passages Of Absence - Natalia Arbelaez, 2018-19 Artist In Residence

In Passages of Absence, Natalia Arbelaez, 2018-19 Artist In Residence at the Ceramics Program-Office for the Arts at Harvard, presents work developed during her yearlong residency at the Ceramics Program. The exhibition represents "a collection of historical and cultural significant Colombian passages. Events, myths, rituals, and people have been researched and collected to influence a body of work that comes from the absence of it being bestowed. Recreating and reliving through work allows for the reclaiming of the passages and continuing to guide as a contributor." Natalia Arbelaez is a Colombian American artist born and raised in Miami, Florida. She received her B.F.A. from Florida International University and her M.F.A. from The Ohio State University, where she received an Enrichment Fellowship.

Cosmic Origins

On July 20, 1969, Neil Armstrong stepped down from the Apollo 11 lunar lander and impressed the Moon’s dusty surface with the first human bootprint.

Fruits in Decay: Glass Flowers Exhibit

Saturday, Aug. 31, 2019 – Sunday, March 1, 2020 While we eagerly await the ripening of our favorite summer fruits, microscopic competitors are at work multiplying and consuming them in a world beyond our sight. If we wait too long, the activity of fungi, bacteria, and other microbes will soon appear as an unexpected blotch, suspicious “fuzz,” or oddly curled foliage. Fruits in Decay is a new special exhibit in the Glass Flowers gallery that explores blight, rot, and other diseases on summer fruits. It features exquisitely detailed glass botanical models of strawberries, peaches, apricots, plums, and pears made by famed glass artist Rudolf Blaschka. On display for the first time in nearly two decades, these models capture — with astonishing realism — the intricacies and strange beauty of fruits in various stages of decay.

The Rittase Touch: Photographic Views of Harvard in the 1930s

In the fall of 1932, Harvard invited William Rittase (1894-1968), a Philadelphia-based photographer, to Cambridge to capture views of Harvard Yard, its buildings, and the greater campus beyond its gates. Ultimately, he produced a series of 87 photographs, now held at the Harvard University Archives, that visually document Harvard in a period of unprecedented growth and change. On exhibit are 11 original gelatin silver prints of Rittase's 1932 Harvard photographs as well as several reproductions, all placed in their historical, technological, and artistic context. Come see how Harvard was changing in the early '30s, and investigate how it has changed since. Gazette Classification: Art/Design. Education. Exhibitions.

Clay — Modeling African Design

This exhibition highlights artistic innovation and creativity in Africa as seen primarily through the traditions of ceramic arts from across the continent and over its long history.

Critical Printing

"Critical Printing" is an experimental course offered by Harvard’s Department of Art, Film, and Visual Studies that integrates studio and seminar instruction, allowing students to explore print as artists and scholars simultaneously. In this installation, as in the course, prints are organized not by medium or chronology, but by fundamental modes of critical thinking that emerge from the printmaking process. In the gallery, works are grouped around the following themes: Reversal, Pressure, Color Separation, Depth, and Replicability. Over 20 prints are featured, including works by the following artists: Otto Dix, Helen Frankenthaler, Jesse Aron Green, Jasper Johns, Corita Kent, Jackson Pollock, Robert Rauschenberg, May Stevens, Utagawa Hiroshige, Edouard Vuillard, and John Wilson. Also included are examples of Notgeld, emergency currency printed in Weimar Germany around 1920. Gazette Classification: Exhibitions. Organization/Sponsor: Harvard Art Museums.

Crossing Lines, Constructing Home: Displacement and Belonging in Contemporary Art

What does it mean to be displaced from culture and home? What are the historical contexts for understanding our contemporary moment? How does an artist’s work and process embody and engage the narratives of displacement and belonging? "Crossing Lines, Constructing Home" investigates two parallel ideas: national, political, and cultural conceptions of boundaries and borders; and the evolving hybrid spaces, identities, languages, and beliefs created by the movement of peoples.

Visual Science: The Art of Research

This exhibit features images and objects drawn from a variety of disciplines and time periods that show the importance of visual experiences in science. Images have played many roles in scientific research. Images can record fleeting observations, whether a painting of an animal glimpsed in the field or an interaction between sub-atomic particles that lasts a millisecond. They can also make unseen things visible. Physical models can make abstract mathematical concepts into something that researchers can touch; properly arranged, sand, metal plates, and a violin bow can make sound waves into images. Finding patterns in both kinds of images, or painstakingly transforming images into data can lead to new discoveries. Images also play a role in summarizing, clarifying, and communicating ideas. Compelling images have often helped people understand and accept radically new ideas, turning what might at first be a hard to understand into a new commonsense understanding. Other times, visual representations can help… Gazette Classification: Art/Design. Exhibitions. Science. Organization/Sponsor: Harvard Museums of Science & Culture. Cost: Free.

IACS Seminar: "On the Detection of Malware on Virtual Assistants Based on Behavioral Anomalies"

Lunch will not be provided. Dr. Spiros Mancoridis's work explores some of the security concerns pertaining to running software similar to Amazon Alexa home assistant on IoT-like platforms. Researchers implemented a behavioral-based malware detector and compared the effectiveness of different system attributes that are used in detecting malware, i.e. system calls, network traffic, and the integration of system call and network traffic features. Given the small number of malware samples for IoT devices, researchers created a parameterizable malware sample that mimics Alexa behavior in varying degrees, while exfiltrating data from the device to a remote host. The performance of the anomaly detector was evaluated based on how well it determined the presence of the parameterized malware on an Alexa-enabled IoT device.

Listen Up Philip

Openly inspired by the writings of Perry’s long-time idol Philip Roth, and his Zuckerman novels in particular, "Listen Up Philip" gives Jason Schwartzman one of his best roles to date as an eccentric and insufferable writer perched at the edge of a successful career he both feels entitled to and secretly fears. A cautionary tale about hubris and artistic ambition, "Listen Up Philip" is also a cutting satire of the writer’s life that seems to embrace, only to upend, all too well known literary rites of passage: the dissolution of a toxic relationship, acceptance into incestuous salons, mentorship with an older writer that sours into rivalry. Using a ruminative voiceover (spoken by Eric Bogosian), Perry tellingly gives his film a novelistic richness of perspective, at one point breaking away from Schwartzman’s Philip to follow his photographer girlfriend, given real depth by a marvelous Elisabeth Moss — in her first collaboration with Perry — while also lingering on the figure of the older writer-mentor played… Gazette Classification: Film.

My Name is Julia Ross/So Dark the Night

One of the great delights of the B-film is that rare chance to see a favorite character actor elevated to a starring role, like menacing tough guy Charles McGraw’s transformation into a bulletproof cop in "Armored Car Robbery," or Hungarian émigré Steven Geray, the suave maître d’ and waiter in countless pictures, now cast as a Parisian detective whose engagement to a small-town innkeeper’s daughter is shattered by her gruesome murder. Determined to catch the killer, Geray embarks on a strange and twisting path, interrogating subjects while his criminal prey remains always one step away. In this stylish follow-up to his breakthrough hit, the Gothic plot-twister "My Name is Julia Ross," Joseph H. Lewis makes clear his wild talent for the unexpected stories and bold mise-en-scène that give his films the giddy intensity so beloved by true cinephiles. Regularly rediscovered as a cult classic, "So Dark the Night" drew the attention of Columbia executives who began to unsuccessfully groom Lewis for bigger-budget as… Gazette Classification: Film.

Fruits in Decay: Glass Flowers Exhibit

Saturday, Aug. 31, 2019 – Sunday, March 1, 2020 While we eagerly await the ripening of our favorite summer fruits, microscopic competitors are at work multiplying and consuming them in a world beyond our sight. If we wait too long, the activity of fungi, bacteria, and other microbes will soon appear as an unexpected blotch, suspicious “fuzz,” or oddly curled foliage. Fruits in Decay is a new special exhibit in the Glass Flowers gallery that explores blight, rot, and other diseases on summer fruits. It features exquisitely detailed glass botanical models of strawberries, peaches, apricots, plums, and pears made by famed glass artist Rudolf Blaschka. On display for the first time in nearly two decades, these models capture — with astonishing realism — the intricacies and strange beauty of fruits in various stages of decay.

"Critical Printing" is an experimental course offered by Harvard’s Department of Art, Film, and Visual Studies that integrates studio and seminar instruction, allowing students to explore print as artists and scholars simultaneously. In this installation, as in the course, prints are organized not by medium or chronology, but by fundamental modes of critical thinking that emerge from the printmaking process. In the gallery, works are grouped around the following themes: Reversal, Pressure, Color Separation, Depth, and Replicability. Over 20 prints are featured, including works by the following artists: Otto Dix, Helen Frankenthaler, Jesse Aron Green, Jasper Johns, Corita Kent, Jackson Pollock, Robert Rauschenberg, May Stevens, Utagawa Hiroshige, Edouard Vuillard, and John Wilson.

Visual Science: The Art of Research

This exhibit features images and objects drawn from a variety of disciplines and time periods that show the importance of visual experiences in science. Images have played many roles in scientific research. Images can record fleeting observations, whether a painting of an animal glimpsed in the field or an interaction between sub-atomic particles that lasts a millisecond. They can also make unseen things visible. Physical models can make abstract mathematical concepts into something that researchers can touch; properly arranged, sand, metal plates, and a violin bow can make sound waves into images. Finding patterns in both kinds of images, or painstakingly transforming images into data can lead to new discoveries. Images also play a role in summarizing, clarifying, and communicating ideas. Compelling images have often helped people understand and accept radically new ideas, turning what might at first be a hard to understand into a new commonsense understanding. Other times, visual representations can help… Gazette Classification: Art/Design. Exhibitions. Science. Organization/Sponsor: Harvard Museums of Science & Culture. Cost: Free.

Swimming Pool

With his archly stylish and self-conscious thriller, Ozon made clear his playful dedication to a postmodern variant of auteurist cinema by taking the title, sundrenched setting and uneasy eroticism from Jacques Deray’s eponymous, now-classic 1969 film to create an uncanny almost-doppelgänger feature placed in deliberate quotes by the figure of Charlotte Rampling as a popular but frustrated British crime novelist come to France to try and write in a different vein. What Rampling encounters in her promised Provence idyll is, of course, not what she expected, but instead what the knowing viewer not so secretly hoped for: a sex thriller murder mystery announced by the sudden arrival of the brooding nymphet daughter of Rampling’s publisher, who immediately sets into play a slow-motion and ambiguous rivalry with the older woman. As the mysterious daughter, Ozon regular Ludivine Sagnier injects a searching energy into the story as she gradually challenges Rampling to unleash her inhibitions, promising to reveal dark… Gazette Classification: Film.

The Color Wheel/The Magic Land of Mother Goose

In his second feature, Perry works only with flat shades of grey to fill in the infinite spectrum of his sardonic, deviant strain of screwball comedy. In the film that put the young director’s name on every critic’s watch list, twenty-something JR, an aspiring news reporter, recruits her brother Colin — still living at home — to accompany her across the country to retrieve belongings from her ex-boyfriend/professor. Their respective insecurities provide plenty of material for the siblings’ relentless — and mostly hilarious, occasionally offensive — insults and banter; the oddly complementary and oppositional bond only showing signs of tenderness when one is in the crosshairs of those even more ridiculously cruel than they are. With a style and tone that feels as careless and awkwardly self-consciousness as its two unsympathetic leads, the film maintains a bizarrely engaging and unnerving balance of comedy and agitation.

Fruits in Decay: Glass Flowers Exhibit

Saturday, Aug. 31, 2019 – Sunday, March 1, 2020 While we eagerly await the ripening of our favorite summer fruits, microscopic competitors are at work multiplying and consuming them in a world beyond our sight. If we wait too long, the activity of fungi, bacteria, and other microbes will soon appear as an unexpected blotch, suspicious “fuzz,” or oddly curled foliage. Fruits in Decay is a new special exhibit in the Glass Flowers gallery that explores blight, rot, and other diseases on summer fruits. It features exquisitely detailed glass botanical models of strawberries, peaches, apricots, plums, and pears made by famed glass artist Rudolf Blaschka. On display for the first time in nearly two decades, these models capture — with astonishing realism — the intricacies and strange beauty of fruits in various stages of decay.

Critical Printing

"Critical Printing" is an experimental course offered by Harvard’s Department of Art, Film, and Visual Studies that integrates studio and seminar instruction, allowing students to explore print as artists and scholars simultaneously. In this installation, as in the course, prints are organized not by medium or chronology, but by fundamental modes of critical thinking that emerge from the printmaking process. In the gallery, works are grouped around the following themes: Reversal, Pressure, Color Separation, Depth, and Replicability. Over 20 prints are featured, including works by the following artists: Otto Dix, Helen Frankenthaler, Jesse Aron Green, Jasper Johns, Corita Kent, Jackson Pollock, Robert Rauschenberg, May Stevens, Utagawa Hiroshige, Edouard Vuillard, and John Wilson.

Crossing Lines, Constructing Home: Displacement and Belonging in Contemporary Art

What does it mean to be displaced from culture and home? What are the historical contexts for understanding our contemporary moment? How does an artist’s work and process embody and engage the narratives of displacement and belonging?

Visual Science: The Art of Research

This exhibit features images and objects drawn from a variety of disciplines and time periods that show the importance of visual experiences in science. Images have played many roles in scientific research. Images can record fleeting observations, whether a painting of an animal glimpsed in the field or an interaction between sub-atomic particles that lasts a millisecond. They can also make unseen things visible. Physical models can make abstract mathematical concepts into something that researchers can touch; properly arranged, sand, metal plates, and a violin bow can make sound waves into images. Finding patterns in both kinds of images, or painstakingly transforming images into data can lead to new discoveries. Images also play a role in summarizing, clarifying, and communicating ideas. Compelling images have often helped people understand and accept radically new ideas, turning what might at first be a hard to understand into a new commonsense understanding. Other times, visual representations can help… Gazette Classification: Art/Design. Exhibitions. Science. Organization/Sponsor: Harvard Museums of Science & Culture. Cost: Free.

My Name is Julia Ross/So Dark the Night

B-film maverick Joseph H. Lewis delivered a low-rent yet brilliantly stylized reply to Rebecca and Gaslight starring a sensitive Nina Foch, in her debut role, as a young woman abducted to a seaside mansion to play the role of an already dead woman and victim of a sinister scheme. With George Macready as a knife-wielding psychotic man-child and Dame May Whitty as his coddling elderly mother, "My Name is Julia Ross" releases the Gothic spirits of the Forties woman-trapped-in-an-old-house cycle into a brisk thriller animated by comically irreverent touches. True to its boldly assertive title, "My Name is Julia Ross" flaunts the rich potential of the B-film to act as a revealingly distorting mirror of the more predictable big-budgeted A-films. Indeed, scenes of Foch pulling apart the wall panels and staircases to discover secret passages seem to subversively celebrate the threadbare sets of Lewis’ low-budget production. An unexpected breakout hit, the film was so popular it was elevated by Columbia to an A-featur… Gazette Classification: Film. Organization/Sponsor: Harvard Film Archive.

The Wind is Driving Him Towards the Open Sea

In the beginning a philosopher tells of seeing his hero, DiMaggio, hit a home run. How did he know he hit a home run? He checked the newspapers. How did they know? The philosophers ask, ‘How can we prove that this is grass?’ How do we know anything? The Wind… is about those explorations one must make to find out about the world. The object of any man’s exploration must ultimately be a woman, a kumari. In the film a boy travels, while we search for a man, Chandler Moore. He is never found, but we see the world he has made for himself. When one does not find a kumari one often finds a kumiss.

The Rittase Touch: Photographic Views of Harvard in the 1930s

In the fall of 1932, Harvard invited William Rittase (1894-1968), a Philadelphia-based photographer, to Cambridge to capture views of Harvard Yard, its buildings, and the greater campus beyond its gates. Ultimately, he produced a series of 87 photographs, now held at the Harvard University Archives, that visually document Harvard in a period of unprecedented growth and change. On exhibit are 11 original gelatin silver prints of Rittase's 1932 Harvard photographs as well as several reproductions, all placed in their historical, technological, and artistic context. Come see how Harvard was changing in the early '30s, and investigate how it has changed since. Gazette Classification: Art/Design. Education. Exhibitions.

Critical Printing

"Critical Printing" is an experimental course offered by Harvard’s Department of Art, Film, and Visual Studies that integrates studio and seminar instruction, allowing students to explore print as artists and scholars simultaneously. In this installation, as in the course, prints are organized not by medium or chronology, but by fundamental modes of critical thinking that emerge from the printmaking process. In the gallery, works are grouped around the following themes: Reversal, Pressure, Color Separation, Depth, and Replicability. Over 20 prints are featured, including works by the following artists: Otto Dix, Helen Frankenthaler, Jesse Aron Green, Jasper Johns, Corita Kent, Jackson Pollock, Robert Rauschenberg, May Stevens, Utagawa Hiroshige, Edouard Vuillard, and John Wilson. Also included are examples of Notgeld, emergency currency printed in Weimar Germany around 1920. Gazette Classification: Exhibitions. Organization/Sponsor: Harvard Art Museums.

Crossing Lines, Constructing Home: Displacement and Belonging in Contemporary Art

What does it mean to be displaced from culture and home? What are the historical contexts for understanding our contemporary moment? How does an artist’s work and process embody and engage the narratives of displacement and belonging?

Environmental and Climate Science Under Attack: What is Happening in the Amazon?

Amazonia is at a crossroads. After more than a decade of progress in combating deforestation, the region faces major threats with increasing deforestation and forest fires. Brazil’s current federal government has been calling for a new cycle of business as usual “development" based on the expansion of deforestation, subtraction of the rights of indigenous peoples, and reduction of protected areas. This composes a perfect storm scenario with serious threats to the future of the whole Amazon biome with catastrophic consequences for biodiversity and climate regulation at regional and global levels.

Visual Science: The Art of Research

This exhibit features images and objects drawn from a variety of disciplines and time periods that show the importance of visual experiences in science. Images have played many roles in scientific research. Images can record fleeting observations, whether a painting of an animal glimpsed in the field or an interaction between sub-atomic particles that lasts a millisecond. They can also make unseen things visible. Physical models can make abstract mathematical concepts into something that researchers can touch; properly arranged, sand, metal plates, and a violin bow can make sound waves into images. Finding patterns in both kinds of images, or painstakingly transforming images into data can lead to new discoveries. Images also play a role in summarizing, clarifying, and communicating ideas. Compelling images have often helped people understand and accept radically new ideas, turning what might at first be a hard to understand into a new commonsense understanding. Other times, visual representations can help… Gazette Classification: Art/Design. Exhibitions. Science. Organization/Sponsor: Harvard Museums of Science & Culture. Cost: Free.

Theological Bioethics Within Marginalized Communities: Women’s Mass Incarceration and Food Insecurity

Show on Harvard Gazette Women’s mass incarceration has grown exponentially in the last 40 years yet the lasting impact that the carceral system has on women and the array of subsequent challenges remain largely unaddressed and under-discussed. As women are more likely to face charges related to illegal substances, the negative impact of policy in conjunction with the "War on Drugs" continues to affect women and their families post-incarceration. This event will explore this negative impact particularly through the lens of food security and will pose the question of the role of faith-communities and faith-based institutions in addressing these negative outcomes.

By the Grace of God

Outraged by the still-unresolved sex crimes committed by prominent members of the French Catholic Church, Ozon first considered making a documentary before realizing he was better suited to craft a compelling multithreaded narrative that could do justice, in every sense of the term, to the point of view and life experience of long-suffering victims of sexual abuse. Telling the story of three men looking back, reluctantly but with real purpose, "By the Grace of God" constructs a riveting study of injustice, community and faith that looks closely at the rippling effects of sexual abuse upon families, loved ones and the victims themselves, who have struggled against the shame and guilt and confusion inflicted upon them during their most vulnerable years. Ozon uses all of his consummate skills to deliver a powerful indictment of rigid and criminally indifferent Church hierarchy while also showing admirable restraint in depicting the crimes committed in ways that ennoble, yet in no way soften, the still heart-wren… Gazette Classification: Film.

Critical Printing

"Critical Printing" is an experimental course offered by Harvard’s Department of Art, Film, and Visual Studies that integrates studio and seminar instruction, allowing students to explore print as artists and scholars simultaneously. In this installation, as in the course, prints are organized not by medium or chronology, but by fundamental modes of critical thinking that emerge from the printmaking process. In the gallery, works are grouped around the following themes: Reversal, Pressure, Color Separation, Depth, and Replicability. Over 20 prints are featured, including works by the following artists: Otto Dix, Helen Frankenthaler, Jesse Aron Green, Jasper Johns, Corita Kent, Jackson Pollock, Robert Rauschenberg, May Stevens, Utagawa Hiroshige, Edouard Vuillard, and John Wilson.

Crossing Lines, Constructing Home: Displacement and Belonging in Contemporary Art

What does it mean to be displaced from culture and home? What are the historical contexts for understanding our contemporary moment? How does an artist’s work and process embody and engage the narratives of displacement and belonging?

Visual Science: The Art of Research

This exhibit features images and objects drawn from a variety of disciplines and time periods that show the importance of visual experiences in science. Images have played many roles in scientific research. Images can record fleeting observations, whether a painting of an animal glimpsed in the field or an interaction between sub-atomic particles that lasts a millisecond. They can also make unseen things visible. Physical models can make abstract mathematical concepts into something that researchers can touch; properly arranged, sand, metal plates, and a violin bow can make sound waves into images. Finding patterns in both kinds of images, or painstakingly transforming images into data can lead to new discoveries. Images also play a role in summarizing, clarifying, and communicating ideas. Compelling images have often helped people understand and accept radically new ideas, turning what might at first be a hard to understand into a new commonsense understanding. Other times, visual representations can help… Gazette Classification: Art/Design. Exhibitions. Science. Organization/Sponsor: Harvard Museums of Science & Culture. Cost: Free.

A Tweeted History of the 2019 Argentine Election: It's not fake news if we believe the thread.

Social networks are today the primary source of political content among the unsteadily informed voters of Latin America.

"Caspian: The Elements" is a new exhibit featuring the evocative imagery of Chloe Dewe Mathews, the 2014 recipient of the Peabody Museum’s Robert Gardner Fellowship in Photography. The exhibit documents her extraordinary five-year journey through the contested borderlands of the Caspian Sea, and reveals the essential role played by elemental materials like oil, rock, and uranium in the practical, artistic, spiritual, and therapeutic aspects of daily life. Caspian: The Elements is a powerful photographic narrative that explores the deep links between the peoples of the Caspian and their enigmatic and coveted landscapes. The exhibition will remain on view through Feb. 17, 2020.

Cosmic Origins

On July 20, 1969, Neil Armstrong stepped down from the Apollo 11 lunar lander and impressed the Moon’s dusty surface with the first human bootprint. This singular moment — when humanity set foot on a world outside Planet Earth — inspired a vibrant new age of scientific and technological research that has vastly improved the understanding of our planet, solar system, and wider universe. On July 20, 2019, the Harvard Museum of Natural History will mark the 50th anniversary of the first manned mission to the Moon with the unveiling of Cosmic Origins. Visitors to this new small exhibit — located within our Earth & Planetary Sciences exhibition — will investigate the origins of and processes shaping planetary bodies and stars by using touchable specimens, colorful visuals, and interactive media.

Fruits in Decay: Glass Flowers Exhibit

Saturday, Aug. 31, 2019 – Sunday, March 1, 2020 While we eagerly await the ripening of our favorite summer fruits, microscopic competitors are at work multiplying and consuming them in a world beyond our sight. If we wait too long, the activity of fungi, bacteria, and other microbes will soon appear as an unexpected blotch, suspicious “fuzz,” or oddly curled foliage. Fruits in Decay is a new special exhibit in the Glass Flowers gallery that explores blight, rot, and other diseases on summer fruits. It features exquisitely detailed glass botanical models of strawberries, peaches, apricots, plums, and pears made by famed glass artist Rudolf Blaschka. On display for the first time in nearly two decades, these models capture — with astonishing realism — the intricacies and strange beauty of fruits in various stages of decay.

The Rittase Touch: Photographic Views of Harvard in the 1930s

In the fall of 1932, Harvard invited William Rittase (1894-1968), a Philadelphia-based photographer, to Cambridge to capture views of Harvard Yard, its buildings, and the greater campus beyond its gates. Ultimately, he produced a series of 87 photographs, now held at the Harvard University Archives, that visually document Harvard in a period of unprecedented growth and change. On exhibit are 11 original gelatin silver prints of Rittase's 1932 Harvard photographs as well as several reproductions, all placed in their historical, technological, and artistic context.

Visual Science: The Art of Research

This exhibit features images and objects drawn from a variety of disciplines and time periods that show the importance of visual experiences in science. Images have played many roles in scientific research. Images can record fleeting observations, whether a painting of an animal glimpsed in the field or an interaction between sub-atomic particles that lasts a millisecond. They can also make unseen things visible. Physical models can make abstract mathematical concepts into something that researchers can touch; properly arranged, sand, metal plates, and a violin bow can make sound waves into images. Finding patterns in both kinds of images, or painstakingly transforming images into data can lead to new discoveries. Images also play a role in summarizing, clarifying, and communicating ideas. Compelling images have often helped people understand and accept radically new ideas, turning what might at first be a hard to understand into a new commonsense understanding. Other times, visual representations can help… Gazette Classification: Art/Design. Exhibitions. Science. Organization/Sponsor: Harvard Museums of Science & Culture. Cost: Free.

Science & Democracy Lecture: "Uncertain Futures: Imaginaries, Narratives, and Calculative Technologies"

Dynamic capitalist economies are characterised by relentless innovation and novelty and hence exhibit an indeterminacy that cannot be reduced to measurable risk. How then do economic actors form expectations and decide how to act despite this uncertainty? This talk will focus on the role played by imaginaries, narratives, and calculative technologies, and argue that the market impact of shared calculation devices, social narratives, and contingent imaginaries underlines the rationale for a new form of ‘narrative economics’ and a theory of fictional (rather than rational) expectations. When expectations cannot be anchored in objective probability functions, the future belongs to those with the market, political, or rhetorical power to make their models or stories count. The talk will also explore the dangers of analytical monocultures and discourses of best practice in conditions of uncertainty, as well as the link between uncertainty and some aspects of populism such as the distrust of experts.

Harvard Science Book Talk: Sean Carroll, "The Many Worlds of Quantum Mechanics"

One of the great intellectual achievements of the 20th century was the theory of quantum mechanics, according to which observational results can only be predicted probabilistically rather than with certainty. Yet, after decades in which the theory has been successfully used on an everyday basis, most physicists would agree that we still don't truly understand what it means. Carroll, a theoretical physicist at the California Institute of Technology, host of the Mindscape podcast, and author of "From Eternity to Here," "The Particle at the End of the Universe," and "The Big Picture," will talk about his new book that examines the source of this puzzlement. He will explain why an increasing number of physicists are led to an apparently astonishing conclusion: that the world we experience is constantly branching into different versions, representing the different possible outcome of quantum measurements. This could have important consequences for quantum gravity and the emergence of spacetime. Gazette Classification: Lecture. Science.

Royal City Invented: Mysore in the 20th Century

After the 1880s, Mysore was established as the home of the royal family. Despite its interrupted and uncertain status as a “capital” city, it became the site of an experiment in ornamentalism by the 20th century. It was among the first cities in India to have a City Improvement Trust in 1903, a few years after the Bombay Improvement Trust was set up in 1898. In the Trust’s negotiations with the municipality on the one hand, and the Palace establishment on the other, we see a specific form of material and temporal “ordering” that drew as much on the sovereign power of the monarch — though mediated by an increasingly powerful bureaucracy — as on a creative adaptation of the diverse forces, techniques, and devices more properly associated with “governmentality.” How does the invention of Royal Mysore challenge existing conceptions of the colonial city as a site of modernity?

Cosmic Origins

On July 20, 1969, Neil Armstrong stepped down from the Apollo 11 lunar lander and impressed the Moon’s dusty surface with the first human bootprint. This singular moment — when humanity set foot on a world outside Planet Earth — inspired a vibrant new age of scientific and technological research that has vastly improved the understanding of our planet, solar system, and wider universe. On July 20, 2019, the Harvard Museum of Natural History will mark the 50th anniversary of the first manned mission to the Moon with the unveiling of Cosmic Origins. Visitors to this new small exhibit — located within our Earth & Planetary Sciences exhibition — will investigate the origins of and processes shaping planetary bodies and stars by using touchable specimens, colorful visuals, and interactive media.

Fruits in Decay: Glass Flowers Exhibit

Saturday, Aug. 31, 2019 – Sunday, March 1, 2020 While we eagerly await the ripening of our favorite summer fruits, microscopic competitors are at work multiplying and consuming them in a world beyond our sight. If we wait too long, the activity of fungi, bacteria, and other microbes will soon appear as an unexpected blotch, suspicious “fuzz,” or oddly curled foliage. Fruits in Decay is a new special exhibit in the Glass Flowers gallery that explores blight, rot, and other diseases on summer fruits. It features exquisitely detailed glass botanical models of strawberries, peaches, apricots, plums, and pears made by famed glass artist Rudolf Blaschka. On display for the first time in nearly two decades, these models capture — with astonishing realism — the intricacies and strange beauty of fruits in various stages of decay.

The Rittase Touch: Photographic Views of Harvard in the 1930s

In the fall of 1932, Harvard invited William Rittase (1894-1968), a Philadelphia-based photographer, to Cambridge to capture views of Harvard Yard, its buildings, and the greater campus beyond its gates. Ultimately, he produced a series of 87 photographs, now held at the Harvard University Archives, that visually document Harvard in a period of unprecedented growth and change. On exhibit are 11 original gelatin silver prints of Rittase's 1932 Harvard photographs as well as several reproductions, all placed in their historical, technological, and artistic context.

Critical Printing

"Critical Printing" is an experimental course offered by Harvard’s Department of Art, Film, and Visual Studies that integrates studio and seminar instruction, allowing students to explore print as artists and scholars simultaneously. In this installation, as in the course, prints are organized not by medium or chronology, but by fundamental modes of critical thinking that emerge from the printmaking process. In the gallery, works are grouped around the following themes: Reversal, Pressure, Color Separation, Depth, and Replicability. Over 20 prints are featured, including works by the following artists: Otto Dix, Helen Frankenthaler, Jesse Aron Green, Jasper Johns, Corita Kent, Jackson Pollock, Robert Rauschenberg, May Stevens, Utagawa Hiroshige, Edouard Vuillard, and John Wilson. Also included are examples of Notgeld, emergency currency printed in Weimar Germany around 1920. Gazette Classification: Exhibitions. Organization/Sponsor: Harvard Art Museums.

Crossing Lines, Constructing Home: Displacement and Belonging in Contemporary Art

What does it mean to be displaced from culture and home? What are the historical contexts for understanding our contemporary moment? How does an artist’s work and process embody and engage the narratives of displacement and belonging?

Visual Science: The Art of Research

This exhibit features images and objects drawn from a variety of disciplines and time periods that show the importance of visual experiences in science. Images have played many roles in scientific research. Images can record fleeting observations, whether a painting of an animal glimpsed in the field or an interaction between sub-atomic particles that lasts a millisecond. They can also make unseen things visible. Physical models can make abstract mathematical concepts into something that researchers can touch; properly arranged, sand, metal plates, and a violin bow can make sound waves into images. Finding patterns in both kinds of images, or painstakingly transforming images into data can lead to new discoveries. Images also play a role in summarizing, clarifying, and communicating ideas. Compelling images have often helped people understand and accept radically new ideas, turning what might at first be a hard to understand into a new commonsense understanding. Other times, visual representations can help… Gazette Classification: Art/Design. Exhibitions. Science. Organization/Sponsor: Harvard Museums of Science & Culture. Cost: Free.
