MORE INFORMATION REGARDING THE PROJECT AND RESIDENCY:

 ASU Art Museum is excited to have CEC Artslink Fellow artist Anila Rubiku currently in residence. Rubiku, often with assistance from members from local communities, works primarily with sewn paper and large-scale structures that depict the human body and explore urban architectural spaces. She has shown her work throughout Europe, Asia, the Middle East and in the U.S., and has done numerous collaborative community projects around the world with diverse groups that include Ethiopian women in Tel Aviv and students of the Design & Architecture University in Taipei. Rubiku is interested in bringing knowledge of American art and architectural centers and community organization practices back to Albania to inform an urban revitalization project she will undertake with architectural students from Tirana University.

Rubiku’s current project at ASU Art Museum is a story told in stitched leather. Each individually stitched section will be joined together to form a large wall-sized work. “The pieces come together to tell a story,” explains Rubiku. “This is how I see Arizona; it’s so large and growing so much. This is because of the human element; we build houses because families need them. As families grow our urban development also must grow with them. This story is also formed by the desert, and the shapes and elements of the desert become a sort of erotic and humorous symbol for procreation and growth in both the human sense and with respect to urban building.”

Rubiku is also pleased to announce the U.S. premiere of her video installation at Taliesin West, Frank Lloyd Wright’s national historic landmark home and studio in Scottsdale, in a collaboration with ASU Art Museum, on November 14, 2008, from 7pm – 9pm. Titled One Night Only, the video installation continues the artist’s conversation on urban and human development. “Both the Museum work and the video installation are about architecture,” says Rubiku. “People make families and initially start a city because they need someplace for their families. As the cities grow they start becoming more planned, but they are still planned in response to human needs. These two different media are just two different ways of exploring this same theme.” 

One Night Only includes a paper construction of the most rapidly growing cities of the last ten years with video projection, and has been shown before only in Tel Aviv. Rubiku’s works are recommended for mature audiences; the viewing at Taliesin West is free but does not include tours of the facility. Taliesin West is located at 12621 N. Frank Lloyd Wright Blvd. at Cactus Rd. For information about tours call 480-680-2700 ext. 494.

As part of its mission as a university museum, ASU Art Museum is committed to showing artists’ work first and is proud to offer artists the opportunity to grow creatively and experiment with new forms. The Social Studies initiative provides opportunities for artists working in various media to interact creatively and collaboratively with students, other artists, faculty and community members. The social interaction of the Museum-as-artist’s-studio setting encourages participants to explore new avenues of creativity and ultimately enhance their understanding of their world and each other.

“For all that’s been said about how behind-the-times academia can be, university galleries are very often the most risk-taking portholes to contemporary art. This fact is exemplified by Arizona State University Art Museum… has demonstrated a keen eye and clear commitment to emerging artists and emergent media.”

My first day working inside the ASU Art museum, with a group of people.

an european artist in Tempe Arizona!!!!!!

sometimes, things change

 and big changes are most of the time are for the best.

 

Gosh it’s really great. 

At the beginning I though oh where and what is this city for… so BIG, 

huge cars,  what do they need them for?

the sun that is so strong and oh Gosh the heat…

so I still ask myself many things I see here and don’t understand.

But here I am,

after a week and I really like it. Like the creasines of this big spaces, a kind of free spirit that we european always speak.

 Thinking big and doing big. 

Well nowdays thinking big and doing big is not the same but once a while here it can happen.

 

Yesterday was my first day working inside the ASU Art Museum, 

me and the others are producing an art work into a museum gallery.

It makes me feel special. 

Yes!

The museums are made for showing an art work but not for producing an art work.

Not a Lab or a studio!

So this is what I like the most here. 

Changes, changing ways of doing, sometimes my attitude.

And maybe showing after this work out not into a museum.

 Il contenuto e il contenitore is the base of this change.

Well girls thank you very much for coming and collaborating at my projects.

Thank you for helping me

Let see what and who is coming today. 

I know that the best has yet to come…

Dreaming how this work is going to be!!!

Be creative. Be human.  :)

 

The Arizona State University Art Museum is excited to announce that Artist in Residence Anila Rubiku will be setting up a collaborative project space in the center of the Arizona State University Art Museum’s Americas Gallery.

Tuesday, 2-6pm;  Wednesday through Friday, 1-4pm

All supplies needed for the project will be provided in the gallery, so we ask participants to use our standard check-in process at the front desk for large bags and other items. All participants will be working directly with the artist in a designated/defined/stantioned space within the gallery during scheduled hours. During non-scheduled hours the collaborative project space will be closed but viewable to the public. 

The process will be documented through the new ASU Art Museum blog online at the following address:http://asuartmuseum.wordpress.com/ (you are here!)
