  • Faculty publications named "best art books of the year" by the New York Times

    Professor Julia Bryan-Wilson's new book Fray: Art and Textile Politics was selected by Holland Cotter as one of the "best art books of 2017" in the New York Times.  Assistant Professors Atreyee Gupta and Anneka Lenssen both contributed to another publication on the list, Postwar: Art Between the Pacific and the Atlantic, 1945-1965  (Haus der Kunst). 
     
    "Textile art, sometimes called fiber art, once occupied ambiguous terrain in a now-obsolete art vs. craft divide. Julia Bryan-Wilson’s book goes beyond arguing for fiber’s aesthetic legitimacy to demonstrating its political agency. And she does so by considering an enthralling range of hitherto untapped material: fantastic costumes designed by the 1970s queer theater troupe, the Cockettes; hand-sewn tapestries produced by Chilean artists depicting torture under the Pinochet regime; and the still-growing NAMES Project AIDS Memorial Quilt. Ms. Bryan-Wilson’s research is more than substantial, but her propulsive style makes the book a page-turner."

  • Julia Bryan-Wilson Contributes to Award-Winning Volume

    Lawrence Alloway: Critic and Curator (Getty Research Institute), which includes Julia Bryan-Wilson's contribution "The Present Complex: Lawrence Alloway and the Currency of Museums," received the Historians of British Art Book Award for best multi-authored work in 2015.

    The award citation reads:

    Lucy Bradnock, Courtney J. Martin, and Rebecca Peabody, eds., Lawrence Alloway: Critic and Curator, Getty Research Institute.

    Lawrence Alloway (1926–1990) was a key figure in the development of modern art in Europe and America from the 1950s to the 1980s. He is credited with coining the term pop art and with championing conceptual art and feminist artists in America. His interests as a critic and as a curator at the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum in New York were wide-ranging, however, and included architecture, design, earthworks, film, neorealism, science fiction, and public sculpture. Early in his career he was associated with the Independent Group in London and although he was largely self-taught, he was a noted educator and lecturer. A prolific writer, Alloway sought to escape the conventions of art-historical discourse. This volume illuminates how he often shaped the field and anticipated approaches such as social art history and visual and cultural studies. Lawrence Alloway: Critic and Curator provides the first critical analysis of the multiple facets of Alloway’s life and career, exploring his formative influence on the disciplines of art history, art criticism, and museum studies. The nine essays in this volume depend on primary archival research, much of it conducted in the Lawrence Alloway Papers held by the Getty Research Institute. Each author addresses a distinct aspect of Alloway’s eclectic professional interests and endeavors.

  • Anticipating BAM Reopening, Students in Collaboration

    Students in Professor Julia Bryan-Wilson's contemporary art history class are collaborating with curator Connie Lewallen for the upcoming show Mind Over Matter, opening at the Berkeley Art Museum in fall 2016. The undergraduates are researching some of the objects, photographs, and ephemera in the exhibit—which focuses on the museum's rich holdings in conceptual art—and writing essays for the online exhibition catalogue.
