February 23, 2017 | Drones by Karina Aguilera Skvirsky
January 17 - March 24, 2017 | 10:00 AM - 5:00 PM Free Event -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Lecture: Feb. 2, from 4:30 – 5:30 p.m. in Wilson Hall Auditorium Opening reception: Friday, Feb. 2, from 5:30 – 7:00 p.m. Drones are in the news. They carry out targeted killings; they are manned with cameras to record movements on the ground; hobbyists fly them in public spaces; Amazon wants to use them to deliver their products. Appropriating visual juxtapositions from the surrealists and kitsch sic-fi invasion films, Drones is a series of photo-collages that put flying objects into our aerial landscapes. This series includes landscapes from US, Ecuador and other unidentifiable locations. “The Drones” function like a photographic bricolage of buildings. The cut of a scissors and Photoshop suggest something crucial about Drones: their immediate extraterrestrial appearance places them in a space between reality and fiction mirroring our own abstract experience (via the Internet).

February 23, 2017 | Learning to Fly
New Jersey Aviation History Celebrated in Exhibition January 17 – March 10, 2017 Opening Reception: Thursday, January 26, 2017 – 5 to 9pm Seton Hall University’s Walsh Gallery presents “Learning to Fly: A Celebration of Flight and Exploration.” The exhibition commemorates several major anniversaries occurring in 2017, including the 80th anniversary of both Amelia Earhart’s disappearance and the Hindenburg disaster in 1937 as well as the 60th anniversary of the launch of the Sputnik satellite by the Soviet Union in 1957. Using both historical objects and contemporary art, “Learning to Fly” will examine major themes within aviation history including flight as innovation, power, competition, and entertainment while also exploring New Jersey’s impact on aviation history using these landmark events. Artifacts from the New Jersey Aviation Hall of Fame, Cradle of Aviation Museum, Navy Lakehurst Historical Society, Newark Public Library, and the University’s Archives will be featured in the show alongside artwork by Ellie Irons, Dan Phiffer, Greg Leshé, Winifred McNeill, Timothy Pickerell, Chad Stayrook, Lizzy Storm, and Sara Sun. Curators Derek Butler and Kathlene Williams invite visitors to examine the tremendous role that flight has played in society over the last century. Butler comments, “Flight is something that we take for granted today, but it was once a new frontier that inspired mankind to innovate and compete. The aviator turned into a celebrity as flight made its way into our popular culture during the 1930s. Aviation has played a role in political power as well, especially during the Cold War when the Space Race inspired a new generation to look beyond the skies and into space. We want to highlight the role that flight has played, not only in New Jersey’s history, but in a wider context that has made it such an integral part of our society today.” In conjunction with the exhibition, a Pop-Up Museum will take place inspired by the connections individuals make with flight and exploration in their daily lives. The Pop-Up museum is a temporary exhibit created by visitor participants. Visitors are invited to bring an object, memory, or souvenir that relates to the theme of flight and exploration. Objects will be on display for one day as part of the temporary museum. This program will be held on February 14, 2016 at the University Center Living Room from 11:00am to 4:00pm. For 150 years, Seton Hall University has been a catalyst for leadership, developing the whole student mind, heart, and spirit. Seton Hall combines the resources of a large university with the personal attention of a small liberal arts college. Its attractive suburban campus is only 14 miles by train, bus, or car to New York City, with the wealth of employment, internship, cultural, and entertainment opportunities the city offers. Seton Hall is a Catholic university that embraces students of all races and religions, challenging each other to better the world with integrity, compassion, and a commitment to serving others. For more information, see www.shu.edu/walshgallery. Seton Hall University is located at 400 S. Orange Avenue, South Orange, New Jersey, 07079. The Walsh Gallery is open 10:30am to 4:30pm, Monday – Friday.
