    • UAB students use performance, interactivity and alternative materials to create art for one-night-only exhibition Aug. 5
      Sculptural objects, masks, puppets, performances and art installations created by Department of Art and Art History students will be shown in a one-night-only exhibition.

      Sculptural objects, masks, puppets, performances and art installations will be shown in a one-night-only exhibition Wednesday, August 5, presented by the University of Alabama at BirminghamCollege of Arts and SciencesDepartment of Art and Art History.

      Two one-night-only exhibitions will be presented from 6-8 p.m. Students in Assistant Professor of Sculpture Stacey Holloway’s summer interdisciplinary Interlude: Space & Body course engaged in projects that consider the role of performance and interactivity within contemporary art making. Works by each student can be seen in the exhibition in the Department of Art and Art History Project Space, on the first floor of the Humanities Building, 900 13th St. South.  

      “In this course, students focused on three main projects: relationships between audience and sculptural objects; creating narratives through objects and performance; and puppetry and set design,” Holloway said. After researching contemporary artists who use their own bodies in interactive and performance art practice, such as Janine Antoni, Joseph Beuys, Felix Gonzalez-Torres, Basil Twist and Tomás Saraceno, the students experimented with 3-D sketches, audience interaction and performance while working with nontraditional materials. 

      “Through the investigation of mixed media, including but not limited to drawing, sculpture, photography, video and installation, students explored the possibilities that occur when the body, space and the art object merge,” Holloway said. 

      The students are Tori Absher, Corey Bright, Hannah Hensley, Keila Kirkwood, Bryce Martinez, Jenifer Moore, Lisa Nguyen, Jennifer Rice, Caelum Soverow, Adam Sterrett, Annie Strong and Kylee Williams.

      Also presented Aug. 6 from 6-8 p.m., students from Adjunct Professor Lane Cooper’s summer figure drawing course will open “The Eccentric Nine” in the UAB Painting Studio, located on the third floor of the Humanities Building. Students who will have works featured are Amanda Halbrooks, Marlena Roberts, Augusta McKewen, Ashlee Boren, Ellory Nichols, Jack Vest, Ricardo Munoz, Corey Bright, and Chris Golson.

      The Department of Art and Art History’s Project Space is an adaptive space that cultivates and supports meaningful creative investigation, interdisciplinary collaboration, innovation and entrepreneurship by providing an alternative platform for students, faculty and community to engage teaching, research, public service and visual art practices.

      “Throughout the summer, students were introduced to formal figurative drawing and challenged to consider the figure in contemporary art practice,” says Cooper, “while the second half of the semester involved working with ideas, themes, texts and practical concerns of figurative themes.”

    • Orientation and a service day for UAB’s Montgomery medical students
      UAB’s Montgomery campus medical students go through orientation and lend a hand to Habitat for Humanity.

      Class of 2019Members of the UAB School of Medicine Class of 2019 assigned to the Montgomery Regional Campus spent Thursday, July 30, in a day of orientation and community service. The Class of 2019 will be the fourth group of third- and fourth-year medical students to obtain their clinical training in Montgomery being mentored by community physicians in local hospitals.

      In the opening session of the day, the students were welcomed to Montgomery by Mayor Todd Strange, who emphasized the need to recruit and retain new physicians to replenish an aging medical workforce. Other speakers included Russ Tyner, president and CEO of Baptist Health; Julia Henig, senior vice president at Baptist Health; Peter Selman, CEO of Baptist Medical Center South; and Alan Worrel, chair of the Regional Medical Campus Advisory Board.

      Following tours of Baptist Medical Center South and The Institute for Patient Safety & Medical Simulation, the students spent the afternoon participating in a service project with Habitat for Humanity of Montgomery. Working through the heat and humidity, the students were able to assist in the initial construction of a home in north Montgomery.

      “The focus of the Orientation Day is to acclimate the new students to the community and the institutions where they will be receiving their clinical training,” said Wick Many, M.D., dean of the Montgomery Regional Campus. “The community service project is intended to begin the process of building teamwork within the class and initiate the concept of social consciousness and professionalism that is vital to being a complete physician.”
