The ASU Library Channel presents the eleventh installment of The Simon Ortiz and Labriola Center Lecture on Indigenous Land, Culture, and Community with “James Luna’s Phantasmagoria” James Luna surveys 30 years of his exhibitions and performances with examples of visual presentations and performance works. His entertaining and painful anecdotes tackle issues of strife, misconceptions, and commodification of all ethnicity and expose issues faced by Native Americans. This presentation is unique among the Simon Ortiz and Labriola Center lecture series as James Luna notes, “Performance isn’t something that you talk about. It’s something you do. The visuals talk for themselves.” View more videos from the series on YouTube. Download Presentation (mp4) Lecture Video available for download at the Internet Archive. Recorded Thursday, Mar. 21, 2013 Bio: Internationally renowned performance and installation artist James Luna (Puyukitchum/Luiseño) resides on the La Jolla Indian Reservation in North County San Diego, California. With over 30 years of exhibition and performance experience, Luna has given voice to Native American cultural issues, pursued innovative and versatile media within his disciplines, and charted waters for other artists to follow. His powerful works transform gallery spaces into battlefields, where the audience is confronted with the nature of cultural identity, the tensions generated by cultural isolation, and the dangers of cultural misinterpretations, all from an Indigenous perspective. Since 1975, he has had over 41 solo exhibitions, participated in 85 group exhibitions and has performed internationally at venues that include the Museum of Modern Art (NYC), Whitney Museum of American Art, New Museum of Art, San Francisco Museum of Art, Museum of Contemporary Art San Diego, Los Angeles County Museum of Art, the National Gallery of Canada, and Museum of Contemporary Native Art, Santa Fe, NM. He has received numerous grants and awards throughout his career and most notably in 2005, he was selected as the first Sponsored Artist of the Smithsonian’s National Museum of the American Indian presented at the 2005 Venice Biennale’s 51st International Art Exhibition in Venice, Italy. In 2012 Luna received an honorary doctorate from the Institute of American Indian Arts, IAIA, the premier institute for Native Americans art of all kinds. “It is my feeling that artwork in the media of performance and installation offers an opportunity like no other for Indian people to express themselves in traditional art forms of ceremony, dance, oral traditions and contemporary thought, without compromise. Within these (nontraditional) spaces … there is no limit to how and what is expressed.”—JAMES LUNA ASU Sponsors: American Indian Policy Institute | American Indian Studies Program | Department of English | Faculty of History in the School of Historical, Philosophical, and Religious Studies | Women and Gender Studies in the School of Social Transformation (all units in the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences) | Indian Legal Program in the Sandra Day O’Connor College of Law | Labriola National American Indian Data Center Community Partner: Heard Museum

In this episode Project Archivist Xaviera Flores meets with Chicano/a Research Collection Curator Nancy Godoy and introduces us to a very special collection that is available to the public for the first time: The Alianza Hispano Americana Records Collection. Alianza Hispano Americana was established in 1894 and was the first Mexican American Mutual Aid organization. The main goal of this organization was to provide health and life insurance to the community, and its members also promoted civic virtues and acculturation and provided social activities. The Alianza Hispano Americana Records collection includes membership files, which have rich information for genealogical research, as well as some photographs and artifacts, which we see samples of in the video. The Alianza Hispano Americana Records Collection is part of the Chicano/a Research Collection, the largest Mexican-American archival collection in the state of Arizona. The project is funded by the Andrew W. Mellon foundation and administered by the Council on Library and Information Resources (CLIR) Download Episode Interested in learning more about the Chicano/a Research Collection?

The new Center for Science and the Imagination is launching its exhibit , End of the Golden Age: Science Fiction Before and After the Atomic Bomb, with a grand opening on September 12th at 1 PM at the Noble Science and Engineering Library. This event will feature an introduction by Author Alan Dean Foster. The exhibit presents stories published during and after World War II, and examines the growing recognition within the optimistic ranks of Golden Age writers that some of our greatest scientific mysteries were not technological but cultural. Center director ASU Assistant Professor Edward Finn and Research and Operations Coordinator Joey Eschrich join ASU Libraries’ Fred McIlvain and explore the concepts the Golden Age of Science Fiction and the fascinating exhibit. They also talk about how the Center for Science and the Imagination brings writers, artists and other creative thinkers into collaboration with scientists, engineers and technologists and serves as an exciting place to reignite humanity’s grand ambitions for innovation and discovery. Download the Podcast About the Golden Age of Science Fiction During the late 1930s and early 1940s, the genre we now recognize as science fiction was born in the pages of a handful of pulp magazines. One magazine in particular, Astounding Science Fiction, and its iconoclastic editor, John W. Campbell, pushed science fiction beyond its reliance on the familiar tropes of romance and adventure pulps to define a distinctive new kind of narrative. The crucible of World War II drove the intellectual architecture of new labs at MIT, Stanford and other institutions. The breathtaking pace of discovery led to the invention or refinement of a host of new technologies from radar to the atomic bomb. In short, it was an era when the human imagination was stretched in both terrifying and wonderful ways. This was the era of Science Fiction’s Golden Age, spanning the decade of modern humanity’s transition from technological innocence to experience. The Golden Age of Science Fiction Noble Science and Engineering library at ASU Tempe Campus September 12, through October 2012 Episode 119 Running Time: 19:32 Guests: Ed Finn is the director of the Center for Science and the Imagination at Arizona State University, as well as an assistant professor with a joint appointment between the School of Arts, Media + Engineering and the Department of English.

In this episode Daphne Gill (Noble Science and Engineering Library Manager) meets with Child Drama Collection Curator Katherine Krzys and takes a peek into the collection of stage costumes from designer Irene Corey. Irene literally changed the face of costume and makeup design. For over 50 years she designed costumes, sets and makeup for shows as varied as theatre classics to theme park characters. We would not have seen Lion King or Cats on Broadway without her initial animal makeup and costume work. Irene first became nationally known for the “Book of Job” in the 50′s. She also designed the costumes for the television show Barney and Friends and came up with his trademark purple color. Join us and see the costumes and design materials representing from Irene’s entire theatrical career Kathy collected. The Irene Corey Collection is part of the Child Drama Collection, the largest repository in the world documenting the international history of children’s theatre back to the sixteenth century.

The Library Channel is pleased to present the ninth installment of The Simon Ortiz and Labriola Center Lecture on Indigenous Land, Culture, and Community with Redefining Indigenous Perspectives Through Art and Dialogue. Sculptor Bob Haozous sets the stage with a discussion of his family, and then shares his motivations, descriptions, and circumstances surrounding the creation of many of his most renowned pieces. Mr. Haozous’ talk is wonderfully illustrated with power point slides of his work. View more videos from the series on YouTube. Download Presentation Audio (MP3) Lecture Video available for download at the Internet Archive. Bob Haozous is one of the most important Native sculptors of the Native American Fine Art Movement. His innovation and experimentation with materials push the boundaries of “Indian” art – the boundaries that his father, Allan Houser, helped to define. He is best known for his monumental cut steel pieces which often deal with poignant topical issues. He approaches these issues with a bit of a bite and a good dose of humor. His injection of humor allows the serious issues to be more palatable and to have a universal presence.
