Ongoing Events
Jun 20 - Apr 8
LOCATION: 
Kluge-Ruhe Aboriginal Art Collection
CONTACT: 
434.244.0234, kluge-ruhe@virginia.edu
This exhibition comprises contemporary paintings and sculpture by Indigenous Australian artists from various regions across the Australian continent, from the central desert to coastal regions and islands. Centering on the theme of “country,” the artworks sing melodies of ancestors and land, creation and power, history and memory, community and identity. In caring for and painting their ancestral terrain and home places, Aboriginal artists acknowledge the countless memories already lived and those to come. "Songs of a Secret Country" was curated by five students from universities across the United States. As part of the UVA Mellon Indigenous Arts Initiative, this project trains the next generation of curators to address the pressing lack of diversity in museum practice. The artworks represented are a recent gift to the Kluge-Ruhe Collection by philanthropists Stephen and Agatha Luczo of California.
Jul 28 - Jan 7

This exhibition includes twenty-one sculptures made of discarded commercial fishing nets that washed up on the shore in the community of Pormpuraaw, north Queensland, Australia. “Ghost nets” trap and kill the rich array of marine life in the ocean, eventually drifting to the bottom of the sea to suffocate the seabed and coral reefs. The turtles, sharks, rays and other animals affected are culturally and spiritually important to local Indigenous people. To clean up their environment and raise awareness about the long-term damage caused by the nets, Indigenous artists of Pormpuraaw are repurposing them into fine art sculptures. Also included in the exhibition are three prints and an aluminum sculpture of a stingray by Brian Robinson (Maluyliga, Wuthathi, Malaysia Dayak). The sculpture, Ocean Guardian, represents the creation story of the Great Barrier Reef and is covered in mineral, the distinctive graphic patterns of Torres Strait art. In his linocut prints, Robinson draws on his Torres Strait Islander heritage and traditional art historical and pop culture imagery.

Featuring artifacts from the Albert and Shirley Small Special Collections Library, other University entities, and private collections, The University of Virginia in 100 Objects commemorates UVA’s Bicentennial. The one hundred artifacts included represent moments from two centuries of UVA history in an exhibition that ranges across space as well as time--you can find seventy-nine objects in the galleries of the Harrison Institute/Small Special Collections Library, and twenty-one more may be found at sixteen satellite sites around Grounds. This exhibition is based on the book Mr. Jefferson’s Telescope (UVA Press, 2017), which visitors are encouraged to consult for deeper discussions of each object. The University of Virginia in 100 Objects is produced by the University of Virginia Library with support from the University of Virginia Bicentennial and funding provided by the Alumni Board of Trustees. NOTE: The exhibition is closed on Sundays. Please check the exhibition site for hours.
Sep 1 - Dec 28

Albert and Shirley Small Special Collections Library

Inspired by the recent conservation treatment of a portrait of Burroughs painted by Orlando Rouland, this exhibition brings an important American naturalist back to light. The painting serves as the focal point of the exhibition, tying together writer, artist, collector, and library. The exhibition showcases books, manuscripts, and other materials from the Burroughs collection. John Burroughs’ (1837-1921) essays on nature were widely read by both scholars and the reading public during his lifetime. He counted among his friends prominent men including Walt Whitman, Theodore Roosevelt, Henry Ford, John Muir, and Thomas Edison. The Burroughs collection is part of the Clifton Waller Barrett Library of American Literature at the University of Virginia. NOTE: The exhibition is closed on Sundays. Please check the event site for hours.
