Exhibition: In the Round: Ancient Art from All Sides

This exhibition examines the geometry and design of ancient art and the efforts by artists to represent depth and movement by influencing the vantage point of the viewer. By simply flipping a coin, rotating a vase, or walking around a sculpture, the composition changes and new perspectives emerge. Using artifacts from the ancient Mediterranean, In the Round explores early innovations in representational art.

Selections range from a Ming-dynasty porcelain box and an eighteenth-century jade bowl from the Qianlong Emperor’s personal collection to a recently acquired work by one of modern China’s most revered painters, Chen Yifei.

Selections include works by Jenny Holzer, Alfredo Jaar, Glen Ligon, Chris Ofili, Nancy Spero, Andy Warhol, William Wegman, Cui Xiuwen, and many others.

EXHIBITION: Emerging Modernisms, American and European Art, 1900–1950

Drawn from Bowdoin’s collection, this exhibition addresses the birth of revolutionary artistic strategies, including abstraction, conceptually-driven work, and the use of photography and commercial printing techniques.

Meet the Composer: Jonathan Bailey Holland

An opportunity to learn about and experience the creative process of a living composer. These distinguished artists will discuss aspects of their music and inspirations and then accept questions from the audience.

Cost: FREE
________________________________________________________________________________

Jonathan Bailey Holland (b. 1974, Flint, MI) was influenced early on by his grandfather’s baby grand piano and his father’s record collection, which contained everything from Miles Davis to Bootsy Collins, G. F. Handel, Sergio Mendes, Michael Jackson, Kenny Rogers, and more. Holland draws inspiration from classical, jazz, hip-hop, and other musical genres, as well as from visual art, architecture, poetry, dramatic works, and contemporary events. Early studies of piano, trumpet, tuba, and double-bass led him to Interlochen Arts Academy, where he discovered music composition. He continued his studies with Ned Rorem at Curtis Institute of Music, and Bernard Rands and Mario Davidovsky at Harvard University, in addition to studies with Andrew Imbrie, Yehudi Wyner, and Robert Sirota. He is currently Chair of Composition, Contemporary Music, and Core Studies at Boston Conservatory at Berklee, and Faculty Co-Chair of composition at Vermont College of Fine Arts. He also serves as faculty for the Curtis Summerfest Program.

Holland has been commissioned by numerous orchestras, ensembles, and soloists. He is Composer-in-Residence with the Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra during the 2018-19 season – the first composer to serve that role with that orchestra. His work Ode premiered in November, 2018 and his the fifth work for the orchestra, following the initial commission in 2003 of Halcyon Sun, written to celebrate the opening of the National Underground Railroad Freedom Center. Holland has also been commissioned by the Atlanta, Baltimore, Cleveland, Dallas, and Detroit Symphony Orchestras, among others. Future collaborations and performances are scheduled by the Arx Duo, Buffalo Philharmonic, Concord Chorus, Chicago Modern Orchestra Project, and Eighth Blackbird, and more.
