In September 2014, the Northern Arizona University Art
Museum will produce a juried exhibition of paintings created around inter-woven
themes of politics, violence and reconciliation. The NAU Art Museum believes
that the global community faces a turning point today in which economic,
environmental, and ethnic pressures threaten the integrity of whole
societies. The Arab Spring, wars arising
from religious extremism and, conversely, the efforts of many nations to
maintain stable, consensual societies are among the themes we hope to address
in this exhibition. “Painting in the World: Politics, Violence and
Reconciliation” will be co-jurored
by Dr. George V. Speer, Director of the NAU Art Museum and Dr. Eleanor Jones
Harvey, Senior Curator, the Smithsonian American Art Museum in Washington, D.C.
George V. Speer is the director of the Northern
Arizona University Art Museum and Associate
Professor of Art History. He received his doctorate from
Washington University in St. Louis and his Master of Arts in Art History from
Southern Methodist University. Prior to his appointment at Northern
Arizona University, Dr. Speer was Curator of the Luce Foundation Center for
American Art at the Smithsonian American Art Museum in Washington, D.C. His research
interests focus on twentieth-century American art and culture and the political
origins and consequences of representation.
