Richardson Symposium Racial Masquerade in American Art and Culture - 11.5.16
Description:
Richardson Symposium: Racial Masquerade in American Art and Culture took place at the National Portrait Gallery, Nov. 4, and Nov. 5, 2016 Recording of Saturday afternoon, Nov 5: Speakers Introductions Gwendolyn DuBois Shaw Associate Professor of History of Art, University of Pennsylvania, Senior Fellow, National Portrait Gallery Jillian B. Vaum PhD Candidate, University of Pennsylvania Artistic Practice Discussion Cherise Smith Associate Professor of African and African Diaspora Studies, University of Texas at Austin Michael Ray Charles Professor of Art, University of Houston Event Description Due to technical difficulties, there is audible static during the discussion portion of the video. Throughout American history, different forms of racial masquerade have been used to engage issues of difference and group identity. While this kind of dress up has sometimes been a celebratory act or used by oppressed communities to mock those in power, it has more often been employed in the opposite direction by those in power to dehumanize minorities and reassert existing control over them. In the 19th century blackface minstrelsy and theatrical stage performance emerged as popular entertainments in both the United States parts of Latin America. In the 20th century, racial masquerade became a regular part of Hollywood film as white actors impersonated Native American and Asian-descended characters through the use of often grotesque makeup and mannerisms. This symposium brings together scholars and artists who engage these histories in their work. It also examines contemporary instances of racial masquerade in American culture and the way that such performances of false identity continue to shape the ways that Americans see themselves and others.

Description:
Interview with Jill Wissmiller, whose work "The Gilding of Lily" was selected as part of the Outwin Boochever Portrait Competition 2013 exhibition. More on the Portrait Competition at http://portraitcompetition.si.edu Jill Wissmiller writes: " 'The Gilding of Lily' is a portrait experiment for Snakes, Electricity, and Scorned Women, my upcoming documentary installation that weaves Midwestern meth manufacturing, drag queens in the Dirty South, and the landscape of Las Vegas into an alternately excessive and insufficient investigation of loves gone wrong. Lily has had many a love gone wrong but she is a performer in the most extreme sense. Onlookers are often amazed by the whirlwind of color and shape she presents. She never leaves an audience waiting. Indeed, one can barely keep up. The restriction of her movement for this video portrait achingly ruminates on motion and desire. Fixed desire is the through line for much of my research and creative work, which is concentrated on nontraditional cinema spectatorship and production. I am currently writing a motion picture manifesto that calls for a strict ban on standard definition video being projected upon anything other than glitter.

Lincoln Schatz, video artist, discusses The Network
Description:
Artist Lincoln Schatz was interviewed by the National Portrait Gallery's Warren Perry on December 11, 2012. His work "The Network" can be seen on the NPG's third floor, in the exhibition "Contemporary Americans." The Network, a video group portrait created by artist, Lincoln Schatz, is a new acquisition for the Portrait Gallery. Called a "generative portrait," this piece is a single-screen video that constantly recombines 89 interviews with politicians, scientists, innovators and scholars. The portrait includes people such as former Supreme Court Justice Sandra Day O'Connor, Emmy Award-winning journalist Cokie Roberts, Republican strategist Karl Rove, political heavyweight Vernon Jordan, congresswoman Nancy Pelosi and congressman Eric Cantor. The process included filming each person with multiple cameras during his or her 45-minute conversation with Schatz. As the The Network plays, multiple images of the person appear simultaneously. The software then combines the interviews by topic to transition to the next person. An accompanying 223-page book titled The Network: Portrait Conversations will be released the same day. http://www.smithsonianbooks.com/usersection/BookDetails.aspx?bid=368 For more, see our blog: http://face2face.si.edu/my_weblog/2012/12/the-network-a-portrait.html

Artist Carlee Fernandez in "Staging the Self"
Description:
Interview with artist Carlee Fernandez, her works are part of our exhibition "Portraiture Now: Staging the Self" on display from August 22, 2014 through April 12, 2015 ( http://npg.si.edu/exhibit/staging/ ). “Portraiture Now: Staging the Self” features the work of David Antonio Cruz, Carlee Fernandez, María Martínez-Cañas, Rachelle Mozman, Karen Miranda Rivadeneira, and Michael Vasquez, all artists of Latino background, who make us aware of how identities are constructed and negotiated via portraiture. Seeking to relieve portraiture of its charge to memorialize individuals and convey essential aspects of their identities, they use it instead to explore the ambiguities and changes in individual character. Theatricality is central to their inquiry, as they represent narratives remembered or imagined from their own family histories, or superimpose portraits of their loved ones over themselves, looking for what is shared or unique in individuality, searching like an actor for a character. As they present themselves in a staged manner, portraiture loses its aura of certainty, and becomes an evolving map for finding oneself and others. Carlee Fernandez defines herself as a sculptor, although photography is often her medium of choice to explore familiar or fanciful three-dimensional forms. In the early 2000s she created sculptural hybrids of our consumer age by seamlessly combining rejected skins from a taxidermy shop with everyday objects. Works like Hugo Parlier (2001), a rhino-headed stepladder, emphasizes Fernandez’s preoccupation with shape and identity as well as the relationship between humankind and nature. More recently, in her Bear Studies and Man series, and her new work, The Strand That Holds Us Together, she merges her own body with beasts and with men she loves and admires. This latest series investigates the relationship between self, gender, and family. Fernandez earned her BFA from California State University and MFA from Claremont Graduate University. Her work has been included in numerous solo and group shows, including the landmark “Phantom Sightings: Art after the Chicano Movement” (2008) and the California Biennial at the Orange County Museum of Art in 2010. --- Music: "Feel Good (Instrumental)" by Broke For Free From Free Music Archive Used via Creative Commons-Attribution-NonCommercial-NoDerivatives 4.0 License http://freemusicarchive.org/music/Broke_For_Free/Petal/Broke_For_Free_-_Petal_-_08_Feel_Good__Instrumental_ "Wash Out" by Broke For Free From Free Music Archive Used via Creative Commons-Attribution-NonCommercial-NoDerivatives 4.0 License http://freemusicarchive.org/music/Broke_For_Free/Petal/Broke_For_Free_-_Petal_-_03_Wash_Out

Colin Powell, portrait unveiling & interview w/ Michele Norris
Description:
On Sunday, December 2, 2012, Colin Powell's portrait was added to the collection of the National Portrait Gallery and unveiled in a special ceremony which included an interview with NPR's Michele Norris. In preliminary comments before the unveiling, NPG Commission Chairman Jack Watson stated, "The remarkable story of General Colin Powell is one of the nation's great stories... he is the Cincinnatus of our time." Powell was painted by artist Ronald Sherr, who is also responsible for NPG's portrait of President George H. W. Bush, acquired in 1995. Sherr's portrait of Powell is no small work—it measures 92 1/2 by 51 ¾ inches; the artist portrays the general standing in front of Theodore Roosevelt Hall at the National War College at Fort McNair in Washington D. C. Though Sherr resides in Hong Kong, the painting was completed during several life sittings and with the aid of photographs taken by the artist. General Powell noted of the work, "People will be coming to the National Portrait Gallery and seeing this picture of me, but what they will be seeing is Ron's artistry and his brilliance."

Julie Andrews, Portrait in a Minute
Description:
Guest presenter Elina Tervana, intern at the National Portrait Gallery discusses a 1966 painting of Julie Andrews by John Koch. The 1960s, a decade of great cultural change, presented prime opportunities for Time’s editors to turn to Pop artists for covers by the likes of Andy Warhol and Robert Rauschenberg. Traditional art was still the norm, however. For instance, in December 1966 an oil painting was deemed perfect for portraying Julie Andrews, Oscar-winner and star of two recent box-office hits, Mary Poppins (1964) and The Sound of Music (1965). In covering “the most celebrated movie actress in the U.S.,” Time went to Hollywood and found the thirty-one-year-old Andrews full of old-school wholesomeness, an aberration “in a town where everybody plays the angles.” There was nothing pretentious about her. She would, however, practice her singing at the top of her lungs—her soprano voice had perfect pitch—as she scooted about town in her 1965 Ford Falcon station wagon. Artwork: Julie Andrews. / John Koch / Oil on canvas, 1966 / National Portrait Gallery, Smithsonian Institution; gift of Time magazine
