O KLAHOMA STATE UNIVERSITY Museum of Art
2016 Annual Report
Oklahoma State Unversity (OSU) is committed to maintaining a learning environment that is free from discriminatory conduct based on race, color, religion, sex, sexual
orientation, gender identity, national origin, disability, age or protected veteran status. OSU does not discriminate on the basis of sex in its educational programs
and activities. Examples of sexual misconduct and/or sex discrimination include: sexual violence, sexual harassment, sexual assault, domestic and intimate partner
violence, stalking, or gender-based discrimination. OSU encourages any student who thinks that he or she may have been a victim of sexual misconduct or sexual
discrimination to immediately report the incident to the Title IX Coordinator (campus contacts below). Students may also report incidents of sexual misconduct or
sex discrimination to a faculty or sta member, who is then required by federal law (Title IX) to notify the Title IX or Deputy Title IX Coordinator. If a reporting student
would like to keep the details confidential, the student may speak with sta in the Student Counseling Center (405-744-5472) or the University’s Victim Advocate
(Suzanne Burks: 405-744-5458). For more information regarding Title IX violations, please go to: http://1is2many.okstate.edu. This publication, issued by Oklahoma
State University as authorized by the director of the OSU Museum of Art, was printed by CareerTech at a cost of $150.00. 10 / February 2017 #6393

FROM THE BELLY OF OUR BEING: ART BY AND ABOUT NATIVE CREATION
Sept. 27, 2016 – Jan. 28, 2017 | Reception: Oct. 25, 2016
This exhibition showcases contemporary Indigenous women
working in sculpture, ceramics, jewelry, painting and instal-
lation whose art is known to honor the female deities in the
artists’ tribal genesis stories. The exhibition explores how
these feminine forces continue to impact current ideals about
female behavior and gender roles.

OKLAHOMA AND BEYOND: SELECTIONS FROM THE GEORGE R. KRAVIS II COLLECTION
Feb. 28, 2017 – July 8, 2017 | Reception: March 2, 2017
Including more than 40 works, this exhibition looks at pri-
vate art collecting through history and the eyes of Tulsa col-
lector George R. Kravis II. While Kravis’s design collection
is nationally renowned, his fine art collection has rarely been
exhibited. The selection of paintings, works on paper, sculp-
ture, and furniture is accompanied by pairings of the col-
lector’s comments and anecdotes about his collection with
discussions on the collecting and the critical reception of
modern and contemporary art.

THE ART OF ASIAN LANGUAGES
April 4, 2017 – June 10, 2017 | Reception: April 4, 2017
This exhibition explores intersections of art and language in
East Asian culture through contemporary Asian art. Examples
include both Asian characters, which are image based, with the
Western alphabet, whose letters signify sounds. Representing
a variety of styles, media, and presentation modes, the art-
works demonstrate the fluid boundaries between written
language and art. The works further respond to recent changes
in Asian politics and social environments as well as conveying
the complex cultural heritage. Through offering the opportu-
nity experience Eastern and Western cultural perspectives, the
exhibition seeks to raise awareness about various global issues.

KIKI SMITH AND PAPER: THE BODY, THE MUSE, AND THE SPIRIT

The third in our New York Project, a series of exhibitions
bringing the work of major New York artists to Oklahoma,
Kiki Smith: Paper Trails will present a selection of the art-
ists’ drawings and prints, accented with sculpture from var-
ious periods. Heralded as one of the most distinctive voices
of her generation, Smith has been preoccupied with consider-
ing the female figure from every possible perspective – physi-
cally, culturally, historically, and personally. This exhibition
highlights Smith’s passion for paper as she has explored the
female condition.

ROBERT RAUSCHENBERG’S WORLD
Jan. 31 – June 10, 2017
Robert Rauschenbergs World introduces two major paint-
ings by Robert Rauschenberg (1925 – 2008) recently loaned
to the OSU Museum of Art. One of the most inuential art-
ists of the second half of the twentieth century, Rauschenberg
used radical mixtures of methods with traditional art mate-
rials and found objects to create collage-like compositions
drawn from mass media and popular culture.
These two large-scale paintings mark another period of inno-
vation. Between 1990 and 1991, the artist introduced paint-
ing or silkscreening with a mixture of wax and pigment onto
polished stainless sheets and used heat to fix them.
The two paintings will anchor a series of exhibitions that
incorporate changing selections of works from the perma-
nent collection by Rauschenberg contemporaries.
