Exhibition Descriptions

“Matisse in the Studio” / Tour with Adam Tessier, Head of Interpretation

Henri Matisse—who revolutionized 20th-century art—believed that a treasured group of objects was instrumental to his studio practice. “Matisse in the Studio” is the first major international exhibition to examine the importance of Matisse’s personal collection of objects, offering unprecedented insight into the great artist’s creativity. See these rare pairings of Matisse’s major works with objects of inspiration in “Matisse in the Studio” in its only US venue at the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston.

Five thematic sections—“The Object Is an Actor,” “The Nude,” “The Face,” “Studio as Theatre,” and “Essential Forms”—feature a range of works in a variety of media from different points in the artist’s career. Approximately 36 paintings, 26 drawings, 11 bronzes, nine cut-outs, three prints, and an illustrated book by Matisse are showcased alongside about 39 works from his studio collection—many on loan from private collections and publicly exhibited outside of France for the first time. They include a pewter jug, a chocolate maker given as a wedding present, and an Andalusian vase found in Spain, as well as textiles, sculptures and masks from the various Islamic, Asian, and African traditions that Matisse admired. An illustrated catalogue accompanies the exhibition with contributions by renowned Matisse scholars.

“China’s 8 Brokens: Puzzles of the Treasured Past” / Tour with Nancy Berliner, Wu Tung Curator of Chinese Art

The first-ever exhibition dedicated to bapo (or “eight brokens”) painting, a revolutionary artistic genre that emerged in China during the mid-19th century.


Eight is a lucky number in Chinese culture, and bapo refers to the damaged cultural ephemera hyper-realistically depicted in the paintings—worm-eaten calligraphies, partial book pages, burned paintings, remnants of rubbings and torn-open letters. They are usually arranged in a haphazard, collage-like composition, created with Chinese ink and colors on paper or silk. When bapo emerged, this unexpected imagery was radically distinct from classical Chinese landscape and figure painting, and became popular among an aspiring urban middle class delighted by its visual trickery and sophistication. After 1949, the art form was largely forgotten, but has recently been rediscovered by contemporary artists and collectors. The rediscovery of bapo has prompted curators to now decipher the puzzle of the meaning of the images. This exhibition presents some of the finest examples of bapo paintings dating back to the 19th century, as well as a contemporary work by artist Geng Xuezhi, and includes new acquisitions and loans from museums and private collections located in the United States and Asia. They are interspersed with three-dimensional decorative and functional objects that display bapo imagery.

Title: Recent Developments of Digital Humanities in Taiwan and China Biographical Database
題目:台灣數位人文的發展近況與中國歷代人物傳記資料庫
Abstract
The influences of employing digital resources and tools for humanities research grow significantly in recent years in Taiwan. Digital Humanities (DH) is the term for referring to this relatively new trend in the research community. In this brief talk, I will review the background for the current developments of DH in Taiwan, introduce the national plan for DH pedagogy in Taiwan, and present some interesting research DH projects in Taiwan. I will also discuss my work as a Fulbright and TUSA scholar at Harvard. We will see how computing technologies can be used to assist the construction of the China Biographical Database, which in turn is facilitating historical research about Chinese history worldwide. More specifically, we will go through examples of how we can extract information about named entities from historical documents that were written in classical Chinese.
摘要
台灣的人文研究者近幾年積極地運用數位資源與工具在他們的研究工作中。「數位人文」是這一發展趨勢的通稱。在這一簡報之中,我將回顧數位人文近幾年在台灣發展的背景資訊,報告目前國家正在努力推行的數位人文教學計畫,並且介紹一些實際的數位人文研究計畫。此外,我也將說明本次以傅爾布萊特與頂尖大學聯盟交換學人的角色在哈佛大學所參與的工作。我們將會看到哈佛大學的研究團隊如何利用資訊科技建構「中國歷代人物傳記資料庫」。這一個資料庫現在已經用於全世界各地許多關於中國歷史的研究中。比較精確地說,我將會介紹我們如何從以文言文所撰寫的歷史文本中抽取跟人物傳記相關的命名實體名詞。

Title:  A Short history of cartography
看圖史志:由1703舟山地圖到地圖學

從英人John Thornton之English Pilot中的舟山地圖,囘顧120 C.E. Ptolomy's Geographia 到十四世紀的portolan 海圖,大發現時代荷蘭出版的地圙,Mercator 投影法,Waldseemuller 定名新大陸叫 America. 再看180 B.C.E.馬王堆的絹本地形圖,長沙以南到海的河流都正確,最有名的宋代ll37年的禹跡圖,以一百里為方格,江河及海岸線已如真。鄭和航海圖只剩茅元儀的武備志存有部分,已不如歐洲地圖之真確。緯度易測,經度很難,要到l760 Harrison制出Chronometer才有解決。
From 1703 John Thornton's English Pilot's Chusan map,we race back to Ptolomy's Geographia as the beginning of Western mapping, to 14 century's portolans, Dutch map production in the age of discovery, Mercator's projection,Waldseemuller's christening of new world as America. We will look at 180 B.C.E.'s map of Hunan to the south sea, 1137's map of China with its grid system, the remanent of Zheng He's sailing map which was not depicting the true land forms but only as sailing instructions. Ptolomy promoted longitude and latitude but only in 1760 with Harrison's Chronometer was longitude measurement becoming easy.

Upcoming Events at Summer Star™

SUMMER STAR WILDLIFE SANCTUARY






























































ECO-TRACKING AT SUMMER STAR with DAVID BROWN
SATURDAY, JANUARY 28, 2017, 12 to 3 pm

David Brown Tracking
Summer Star is extremely fortunate to enlist the services of David Brown to provide a three hour combined indoor/outdoor eco-tracking program at the sanctuary. With his guidance, participants will see that many of our resident animals remain busy through the winter months. Participants are encouraged to check the temperature forecast. Dressing in layers is usually a safe bet.
Bio: David Brown
db%20pub%20photo
Tracker-naturalist David Brown has offered interpretive programs for over 20 years to many public and private groups in New England. He practices “quiet activism” believing that a people don’t need to be convinced to protect what they love. His task is to help them love nature by helping them to see some of the life hidden from direct view by foliage and the night. He is the author of several publications on the art of animal tracking, including The Next Step: Interpreting Animal Tracks, Trails and Sign, recently released by McDonald & Woodward Publishing Company.
Eco-tracking at Summer Star
We will take a roughly two-hour walk at Summer Star Sanctuary practicing the arts of finding and identifying the tracks, trails and other sign of wild animals that make the pine-oak forest their home. Some of this sign, such as tracks in the snow, is obvious; other evidence hides in plain sight and needs to be pulled out of the background to be identified. Along the way we will try to answer the questions: why was the detected animal here and what was it doing? That is, what was its relationship with the habitat in which it was found? This is “eco-tracking” or ecological animal tracking. The indoor component of the program will include a slide show and track casts.dewolfe2

Summer Star Wildlife Sanctuary


An Eastern Screech Owl was released at Summer Star Wildlife Sanctuary   December 7, 2016


Today’s release was successful. The owl was brought to TUFTS from Salem. He has such unique beautiful brownish-red feather and he is very little. He first landed on the tree branch near the trail head. But only in half second he quickly flew very fast across Wildflower Meadow towards Northwest. He might sense the wetland nearby, and he might see the new owl box later at our beaver pond. We had Wilson, Rick, Craig, Larry, Jess’s husband and her daughter. Afterwards, we had refreshment, hot tea, and got chance to chat and ask Jess more questions. It was a nice evening---moon and stars started coming out when we were ready to leave. Photos are coming soon, they were taken by Craig Buttner.




There is a brand new blog to show you. On Dec 7th around 4:30pm, we received a recovered Eastern Screech owl from Jessica Zorge--- the Wildlife Program Assistant at Cummings School of Vet Medicine at TUFTS University. She brought in this little red feather owl to be released at Summer Star.   The brand new blog was created by Summer Star staff Liam Hart---from tracing a thread started by Girl Scouts came over to learn building the house for the Eastern Screech owl, we had SVT’s Stewardship Assistant Director Dan Stimson led the program. He then mounted the owl boxes up on the trees. On last Wednesday, the thread is completed while the Eastern Screech Owl was released –powerfully he was flying straight crossing the Wildflower Meadow and disappeared into the trees—hopefully he will find the newly built nesting house. 





Ever wonder how "local" can local food get?  Join us for a discussion urban farming!
This event will be in English.



Date & TIme: Tuesday, 11/29, 7pm
Location: Clypd, 212 Elm Street, Somerville, MA

With the world's population becoming increasingly urban, farming in the city has become a growing trend. Cathy will discuss the environmental, social, and economical impacts of urban farming through history of farming in the US and case studies of urban farming in Chicago. Cathy will also share with us various ways one can reduce waste and produce food for your household.

She earned her Bachelor of Architecture from Carnegie Mellon University and worked at various architecture firms afterwards. Her participation in Solar Decathlon 2007 as a student and subsequent professional projects led her interest in sustainable building technologies, urban development, information network, as well as the concept of design/build. In her free time, she likes to sprout seeds, gawk at historical buildings, and try to recreate authentic dishes from her home country, Taiwan.

Hope to see you there!


【台大健管所前所長、健保局首任局長 鄭守夏教授講座】
週一 12/5 12:30 - 1:30 @ Harvard School of Public Health
HSPH 台灣同學會 主辦

"Healthcare cost containment under single-payer systems: lesson from Taiwan and Korea"
Monday, December 5, 2016 (12:30 - 1:30pm)
Harvard Chan School, GHP 12th Floor Conference Room (Building 1, room 1208)
As countries worldwide look to achieving universal health coverage, rising health care costs often pose a barrier. Single-payer health insurance systems, such as those in Taiwan and South Korea, are thought to be more efficient and likely more effective for containing costs. However, in the last decades, South Korea has also had nearly the highest growth rate in health expenditure among industrialized countries. This talk examines factors for containing health care costs by comparing South Korea with Taiwan, with potential lessons for other countries considering single-payer systems.

A Brave Bird Finally Flying Home Thanks To Tufts Wildlife Clinic Friends

Barred owl W161661 was admitted on July 11th 2016. The owl was a young of this year. The primary problem was an open (bone exposed) humeral fracture (a long bone in the wing). The wing was surgically repaired by Dr. Maureen Murray on July 13th 2016. Many weeks followed to ensure the fracture was stable and healing properly. Once the fracture had healed decreased range of motion presented in the wing. Dr. Murray performed physical therapy on the wing. The barred owl then moved through various sized enclosures. The owl was flight tested multiple times and moved to the Shalin Liu Healing Cage where it was conditioned for release. After 94 days of care at the clinic, the owl was released at Summer Star Wildlife Sanctuary on October 11th at 6pm.

Prior to veterinary school, he worked in the marine animal training and husbandry field, working with dolphins, seals, sea lions and penguins. Last summer, Eric was awarded a research fellowship, which he used to conduct research on sea stars of the Pacific northwest undergoing wasting disease. He recently contributed to a summit discussing the future of sea star wasting disease, in which he presented his research on the use of a few diagnostic imaging modalities in sea stars to leading scientists studying the Pacific coast mortality event. Eric is married to his wife, Kacey, and has a dog, a hedgehog, and two sugar gliders. In his free time, he enjoys photography, hiking, rock climbing, playing the ukulele and snorkeling.

CONTEMPORARY ARTS INTERNATIONAL 


Acton, MA – Contemporary Arts International (CAI), a nonprofit art center, announces the interdisciplinary exhibition in CAI’s Gallery. The exhibition is entitled “TWO REACTIONS, ONE ENVIRONMENT” by Hungarian Artists Ágnes Verebics and Ákos Bánki.  An Opening reception will be held on October 9, Sunday, 2:00PM.

VEREBICS and BANKI are the artists chosen for the exchange program that CAI is in collaboration with in the APA Gallery in Budapest. The two well accomplished artists come into the Quarry with open minds and sharp eyes.  The show presents two distinctly different personalities, sensitivities, and painting techniques, for example, their use of objects, photos, figurative and concrete vs. abstract paintings in reaction to the environment surrounding the Quarry. The found objects, nature and man-made, they encounter inspires their view of the world specific to the Quarry in Acton, Massachusetts, New England.

Ágnes Verebics’s work in faces and masks which hide behind devices attached to machines is calling for the ancestral genetics.
 In recent years, she has developed a special technique painting on aluminum plates and gives a futuristic look to her fantastic figurative work. As she stated, “…exaggerated human and animal body parts inspire and dominate the power of my works... I use fragmentary body images as vehicles to explore the sexuality, violence and the wider human condition;
equally important are questions of what lies behind these faces, what is revealed and what stays out of sight. In the case of self- portraits, what, one may ask, what does one see when facing oneself”.
 Ákos Bánki’s work usually associates photographic studies of figurative elements to his series, extracting, transplanting and translating some of them into his abstract language and then integrating it to his paintings. An experienced reality therefore becomes a physical and psychic manifestation. Sweeping aside the figuratives, he seeks and sneaks into the psychological, emotional, subconscious quarters of chromatics and visualizations in order to make it burst from the inside, aiming to generate an effect on the viewer. Bánki’s is one of the main figures of the new wave of non-figurative painting in Hungary. As a total abstract painter who relates to actionism, expressionism, but also conceptualism, and who paints not only with his hand but with his whole body, not only with his mind, but with his guts, the dripping, leaking, flowing energy fields of Ákos Bánki’s works often slap the viewer with their energy, radiance and vibration.

Both Verebics and Banki were born in 1982, and both have earned a Masters degree in painting at the Hungarian University of Fine Arts in 2006.  Banki has also pursued his studies with a DLA formation in 2011 at the University of Pécs.
  
CAI’s admission fee is $5 for students and $10 for adults, which will include a tour of the studio and the sculpture park.
