Art/Object: Contemporary Works Between Mediums
Jennie Waldow, Stanford art history doctoral candidate and Cantor Curatorial Fellow, considers contemporary works in the collections of the Cantor and the Bowes Art & Architecture Library that fall between the cracks of obvious medium categories. These editions, documents, posters and placards, invitations, and preparatory documents point to the way an artist’s practice often flows across media, with ideas or aesthetics explored through a variety of formats. The virtual exhibition includes works by artists such as Eleanor Antin, Andy Goldsworthy, the Guerrilla Girls, Alison Knowles, Jacob Lawrence, Allen Ruppersberg, Ed Ruscha, Kara Walker, Andy Warhol, and Lawrence Weiner, among others.
Eamon Ore-Giron: Non Plus Ultra
September 23, 2021 – February 20, 2022
In the Stanford tradition of providing a home for art and artists who advance the dialogue on contemporary issues, the Anderson Collection at Stanford University and the Institute for Diversity in the Arts host visual artist Eamon Ore-Giron for the 2020-2022 Presidential Residency on the Future of the Arts. Ore-Giron’s extended two-year residency is due to the pandemic, which prevented the artist from fully realizing the program’s goals.

Eamon Ore-Giron’s work draws on motifs from indigenous and craft traditions, such as Amazonian tapestries and pre-Colombian goldwork, alongside aesthetics from 20th-century avant-gardes, including Suprematism, Neo-Concretism, and Futurism.
Moving between temporalities and across cultural contexts, his large-scale abstract geometric paintings manifest a history of transnational exchange.
