The Adoration of the Magi
A Masterpiece Reconstructed
March 2 - May 27

The University of Virginia Art Museum and the Museum of Biblical Art (MOBIA) have been granted the opportunity of the loan of a major masterpiece of the Sienese Trecento: the Adoration of the Magi by Bartolo di Fredi. The exhibition will reunite the surviving components of an altarpiece that was arguably Bartolo's great masterwork—the main panel, which has remained in Siena since its completion around 1380, and the portions of the predella from the Lindenau-Museum in Altenburg, Germany, and from UVaM.

Rennie Reko: Patternation
Kluge-Ruhe Aboriginal Art Collection
January 28 - April 4, 2011

Patternation was a collaborative installation project by artist Reko Rennie, curator Stephen Gilchrist and the Kluge-Ruhe Aboriginal Art collection. Reko Rennie is a Melbourne-based visual artist who uses stenciling on public and private walls to question notions of cultural invisibility, national identity and public surveillance. Sampling Aboriginal symbology with secular imagery, his work embodies the easy duality of contemporary Aboriginality. The title Patternation refers not just to the repeated geometric patterns that often appear in Rennie's work but to the rhetoricized and contrived "patter" of Australian national discourse which promises so much, but enacts so little.

The arts are really the antenna for society. Artists, performers, and architects help us capture things that we often don't have words for. We end up having full access to the imagination at the University where scientists and artists work together to innovate and explore a new future, a new reality.
—Elizabeth Hutton Turner, Vice Provost for the Arts,U.Va

OpenGrounds is building new networks to connect faculty, students and diverse external partners, inspire those who take risks at the frontiers of their fields and collaborate across boundaries, to create new disruptive ideas that make a real impact in the world.
—Tom Skalak, Vice President for Research, U.Va

OpenGrounds will link scholars, artists, scientists and practitioners in a network of shared ideas, setting the table for conversations that transcend disciplinary boundaries and traditional academic structures. This fertile ecosystem of internal and external partners generates fresh approaches to the most complex and urgent challenges that we face as a society.
—William H. Sherman, Associate Vice President for Research
