Center for Art Research Launch

Friday, May 31 at 4:00pm

510 Oak 510 Oak Street, Eugene, OR 97401

4:00 p.m.—10 for 5 @ 510 Oak Artist Presentations

5:00 p.m.—Studio Notes Exhibition Reception & Open Studios

During 10 for 5 @ 510 Oak, ten artists will present five minutes of content as a response to the question “How do you approach/work within/define ‘research’ in your art practice?” to consider the range of ways that research manifests in contemporary art. Presentations by Avantika Bawa, Marissa Lee Benedict and David Rueter, Carla Bengtson, Pat Boas, Tannaz Farsi, Jessica Jackson Hutchins, Garrick Imatani, Sylvan Lionni, Emily Eliza Scott, and Rick Silva

The Studio Notes exhibition will present the range of inquiry and practices of the CFAR Affiliate Artists by providing a glimpse of this creative community’s works through ephemera related to their art practices including models, tests, sketches, studies, and finished or unfinished work, etc. Getting things out of the studio and into the white box context creates an opportunity to see work differently or experiment with exhibition strategies.

Additionally, CFAR Affiliate Artists will open their research studios during the exhibition reception.

The Center for Art Research (CFAR) is a collaborative, artist-run platform for experimentation and exchange rooted in art making.

The Center cultivates diverse modes of engagement related to the practices of contemporary artists by supporting speculative Research, Discourse, Exhibition, and Publication. CFAR is directed by the faculty in the University of Oregon’s Department of Art, and is sustained by the contributions of individuals and institutions from around the world.

Officially launching on May 31, CFAR is excited to already be hosting a range of activities.
