BOOK TALK AND SIGNING
Loretta Lorance, author of Becoming Bucky Fuller
Buckminster Fuller's fame reached its peak in the 1960s and 1970s, when his visionary experiments struck a chord with the counterculture and his charismatic personality provided the media with a good story—that of a genius who could play the role of artist, scientist, and entrepreneur all at once. In Becoming Bucky Fuller, Loretta Lorance shows that Fuller's career did not begin with the lofty goals hailed by his admirers and that, in fact, Fuller's image as guru and prophet was as carefully constructed as a geodesic dome. Drawing on a close reading of Fuller's personal papers (in particular, the multivolume scrapbook, Chronofile), Lorance looks at Fuller's first independent project, the Dymaxion House, and finds that what really happened differs from the authorized version.

Paintings from the Reign of Victoria: The Royal Holloway Collection, London
This exhibition includes sixty works from the Holloway collection that exemplify a range of themes in mid-Victorian art. At the Yale Center for British Art
Thomas Holloway (1800-1883), a self-made multi-millionaire, purchased a group of "modern" paintings that were the crowning gift of his generous endowment of a college for women, opened by Queen Victoria in 1886. This exhibition includes sixty works from the Holloway collection that exemplify a range of themes in mid-Victorian art.

EXHIBITION “INTERVALS” AT THE GUGGENHEIM
CLOSING July 19, 2009
Intervals is a new contemporary art series designed to reflect the spirit of today’s most innovative practices. Conceived to take place in interstitial spaces or beyond the physical confines of the building, the program invites a diverse range of artists to create new work for a succession of solo presentations. Intervals is inaugurated with a multipart installation by Julieta Aranda (b. 1975, Mexico City) that activates the museum’s triangular staircase.
Challenging the perception of time as a linear progression marked by clocks and other systems, these works propose an alternative notion of temporal experience as a shifting and unquantifiable state. A peephole near the staircase reveals the image of an hourglass, a traditional symbol of mortality. Viewed through the refracting optical device of a camera obscura, the grains of sand appear to flow upward in a startling reversal of time’s passage. Nearby, patches of paint on the walls recall the look of covered-up street graffiti. Using phosphorescent paint, Aranda has transcribed quotations about time drawn from sources that span more than 2,000 years. The words become visible only when the space is periodically darkened.

This exhibition looks at four works by the French sculptor Jules Dalou executed during his British period. Living in exile in London in the 1870s, Dalou found his niche among the English aristocracy with the support of the Countess of Carlisle at Castle Howard, creating a series of intimate statuettes on the theme of modern womanhood. Co-organized by the Yale Center for British Art and the Henry Moore Institute, Leeds.
