Originally created for the 2004 Olympics in Athens, the presentation is part of a new national tour, organized by the American Federation of Arts and Bill Viola Studio.   The Raft is part of ArtRoom, an ongoing series of contemporary art installations organized by the AFA.

From its inception to the present, the NAD has required all Academicians to donate a representative work to the Academy’s collection, and, from 1839 to 1994, the Academy also required Associates to present a portrait of themselves, whether painted by their own hand or that of a fellow artist. Over the decades, this rule has resulted in a distinctive collection of American art that today totals over 8,000 works and includes nearly every major American artist. For America: Paintings from the National Academy of Design is the first exhibition to highlight this decisive feature of the collection—the joint presentation of an artist’s portrait with his or her diploma works.   Featuring over ninety paintings, the exhibition presents not only a visual document of the Academy’s membership but a unique history of American art from 1809 to present.

Join Kimia Shahi for a lecture focusing on the impact Monhegan Island, a small rocky island ten miles off the coast of Maine, had on American art. Shahi will discuss the ways its rugged topography and natural landscape inspired National Academy of Design artist Robert Henri and his New York-based students and future NAD academicians George Bellows and Rockwell Kent. Shahi will also explore the island's effect on artist Reuben Tam, a Hawaiian-born painter who forged deep connections to place, memory, and his artistic predecessors while living and working on Monhegan in the mid-to-late twentieth century. Kimia Shahi is a PhD candidate in the department of Art & Archeology at Princeton University, with particular interest in landscape, geography, and art's intersections with science, philosophy, and ecology. Her dissertation, Margin, Surface, Depth: Picturing the Contours of the Marine in Nineteenth-Century America, investigates how seacoasts emerged as sites for innovative approaches to image-making in the world of artists.

Lecture | “For America,” The Poetics and Politics of Experience

December 7 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm
New Britain Museum of American Art, 56 Lexington St.
New Britain, CT 06052 United States
+ Google Map
$5 – $15

Join us for a distinguished guest lecture by Patricia Hills, Professor Emerita of Art History, Boston University, focusing on the modes of political engagement within the works of Jacob Lawrence, Benny Andrews, May Stevens, and others. After World War II, many artists from the 1960s to the 1990s turned again to figuration as a means of clearly engaging with then-contemporary issues. Professor Hills will discuss how this approach helped artists convey the human experience as it related to civil rights, war, and more. Hills has published books, catalogue entries, and essays on 19th- and 20th-Century American art, African-American artists, art and politics, and contemporary art criticism. Her recent books are Modern Art in the USA: Issues and Controversies of the 20th Century (2001), May Stevens (2005), and Painting Harlem Modern: The Art of Jacob Lawrence (2009). In 2011, she received the College Art Association award for “Distinguished Teaching of Art History.” She is currently bringing to completion the Catalogue Raisonné of Eastman Johnson, which will be a public access, interactive website.

Dvorak’s Vision for America

December 8 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Free with Museum admission

This December, violinist Katie Lansdale and pianist Judith Gordon will perform a program of masterworks by Antonin Dvorak, his successor Leos Janacek, select African-American composers, as well as a newly commissioned work by Native-American composer Jerod Impichchaachaha' Tate.   Antonin Dvorak was the preeminent composer of the 1800s. An immigrant from the small European country of Czechoslovakia, Dvorak had a clear vision for American and its music the moment he arrived; he enthusiastically urged American composers to embrace diversity and draw upon the music of their own lands, specifically Native and African American music, for their own compositions.   Violinist Katie Lansdale has been a member of the internationally acclaimed Lions Gate Trio for over 30 years. She was the winner of the Grand Prizes at the Fiscoff and Yellow Springs national chamber competitions and has collaborated in projects with artists such as Yo Yo Ma, Felix Galimir, Donald Weilerstein, the Miami Quartet, Robert MacDonald, and Charles Neidich.   Pianist Judith Gordon has been a soloist with the Boston Pops Orchestra in works of Mozart, Ravel, and Saint-Saëns. In recent years she premiered and recorded works by John Harbison, Lee Hyla, Peter Lieberson, Salvatore Macchia, James Primosch, and Donald Wheelock.
