BYU Fine Arts and Entertainment Calendar for January 2007

BYU Fine Arts and Entertainment Calendar for January 2007

At the BYU Museum of Art:

  • A new exhibition of the museum's permanent collection, "American Dreams: Selected Works from the Museum's Permanent Collection of American Art," has replaced "150 Years of American Painting," which had been on view for 11 years. The exhibition features prints, sculpture, photography and painting. "American Dreams" is divided into three thematic sections: "The Dream of Eden," "American Aspirations" and "Envisioning America." The collection is scheduled to be on display until 2011.

  • "Candida Höfer: Architecture of Absence" will be featured through Jan. 6, 2007. This is the first North American survey exhibition devoted to this celebrated German artist. Over the last 30 years, Höfer has created meticulously composed images of the interiors of public and institutional spaces. The 50 chromogenic prints in the exhibition embrace the full spectrum of Höfer's illustrious career with an emphasis on her recent work.

  • "Types & Typologies: German Photographers from the Norton Museum of Art" will be on view through Jan. 6, 2007. A companion exhibition to "Candida Höfer: Architecture of Absence," this exhibition gives an overview of the stylistic heritage to which Höfer's work is indebted.

  • "Beholding Salvation: Images of Christ" will be on display through June 16, 2007. Christ's image has dominated the subject matter of Western art for more than 1,700 years, and his life provides a wealth of themes and events for artistic expression. This exhibition will represent a chronology of the Savior's life and examine the changing representations of Christ that resulted from shifting political, religious and cultural perspectives. The exhibition will also explore the artistic styles and conventions that have encouraged a personal relationship between the viewer and the Savior through the generations. Docent-led tours will be offered each Monday night during the exhibition. To schedule a tour, call the Museum Education Department at (801) 422-1140. Free tours will also be available during museum hours and must be scheduled one week in advance. Admission to all exhibits is free. Museum hours are 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. Mondays, Thursdays and Fridays; 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Tuesdays and Wednesdays and noon to 5 p.m. Saturday.
