Join ArtTable Northwest for a private tour with Amanda Donnan, Curator, Frye Art Museum.

Amanda Donnan
Prior to her tenure at Seattle University, Donnan spent six years at Carnegie Museum of Art in Pittsburgh, PA. As Assistant Curator of Contemporary Art, she contributed to the organization of the 2013 Carnegie International, one of the world’s preeminent surveys of contemporary art, and codirected an archival initiative of the Museum’s Time-Based Media collection. Other exhibitions organized at the Carnegie include “Jacqueline Humphries,” “Duncan Campbell,” and “Corey Escoto: Sleight of Hand.” Donnan holds a master’s degree in Modern and Contemporary Art History, Theory, and Criticism from SUNY Stony Brook, and was previously Production Coordinator at Art21 in New York.

Juventino Aranda: Pocket Full of Posies
Born to Mexican immigrants in Walla Walla, WA, Juventino Aranda’s search for self-identity informs his process as it relates to the social, political, and economic struggles of Chicanos. His art and activist practices are influenced by the grassroots movements of Cesar Chavez and Dolores Huerta, as well as the formal and conceptual strategies of post-minimalist artists. From the street to the gallery, he is an archaeologist, historian, and architect to a shifting Chicano community, engaging current political debates and notions of the American dream. Aranda’s recent work draws on his family history and particularities of his childhood that speak to broader cultural themes. The mass-produced art his mother purchased but never removed from its corrugated cardboard protectors, for instance, appear in Aranda’s work as subtle markers of social aspiration and personal economies of value. For his exhibition at the Frye Art Museum—Aranda’s first in a museum setting—the artist will continue this line of inquiry and present a new body of work that explores the ways in which common objects and imported products become emblems of dual cultural identity.
