Ancient Egyptian Art: The Magic of Representation

An Art History Lecture by Eric Wells

Thursday, November 13, 6-7:15 p.m.

The ancient Egyptians produced some of the most recognizable works of art and architecture in the ancient world. A lecture by UCLA teaching associate Eric Wells will explore the magical and social beliefs that framed and influenced the creation of ancient Egyptian material culture, focusing specifically on pieces from the Robert and Frances Fullerton Museum of Art’s ancient Egyptian collection. “Ancient Egyptian Art: The Magic of Representation” will take place at RAFFMA on Thursday, Nov. 13 at 6p.m. Speaker Eric Wells, a UCLA teaching associate in Near East Languages and Cultures and Ph.D candidate, is currently working on a catalog of the RAFFMA permanent collection of ancient Egyptian art. Focusing on ancient Egyptian art from the Old Kingdom, Middle Kingdom and New Kingdom, this catalog will be released in the spring of 2015, in conjunction with a new exhibition.

Art is Transformation

"Bridging Homeboy Industries: Fabian Debora, Alex Kizu and Juan Carlos Muñoz Hernandez" opened at the Robert and Frances Fullerton Museum of Art, at California State University, San Bernardino, on October 6, 2014, and I was lucky enough to be at the opening reception. One of the things that struck me was the act of art as a method of humanizing those individuals that are often seen on the fringes of society, who are often ostracized—gang members. This exhibit becomes proof that art is transformative, not only for the artists but for the audience as well.

Since 1988 Homeboy Industries, a non-profit organization founded by Father Gregory Boyle, has been working to help gang members in Los Angeles construct a new life for themselves. There are many ways that Homeboy Industries does this; through jobs, therapy, and education. Another way however, is to encourage creativity, which is exactly the case with the three artists presenting their work.
