ARTS FIRST 2013

W

elcome to the 21st edition of ARTS FIRST, our annual festival of the arts, sponsored by Harvard’s Board of Overseers. Yes, we are legal at last, but still growing! This year’s festival features the work of some 2,000 students. John Lithgow ’67 They include not only Harvard Master of the Arts at Harvard College artists, but also student artists from the graduate schools, including some extraordinarily gifted performers from our Longwood Campus. Imagine a Harvard Medical School student who has danced professionally for three years with the Paul Taylor Company, or virtuosic pianists who have completed master’s degrees in performance before pursuing that M.D. You will find them all in this year’s festival. We also celebrate the grand opening of the newest Harvard destination for performances, social gatherings, and special events: the Plaza! The highlights include two late-night screenings of films featuring this year’s arts medalist, Matt Damon ’92; a celebratory feast and frolic on Friday night with those purveyors of soul and Motown, the Harvard Nostalgics; and an afternoon of dance from around the globe on Saturday. So dig into this guide or, better yet, download the ARTS FIRST app at ofa.fas.harvard.edu/arts and customize your own schedule. Yes, it is legal, but it is still fun! Come join us.

HA RVAR D arts meda li s t

T

he awarding of the Harvard Arts Medal is a highlight of ARTS FIRST every year. The distinguished recipients are alumni/ae who have made their mark in the cultural arena, whether as visual artists, composers, musicians, actors, directors, filmmakers, poets, singers, or novelists. They are also educators, activists, and leaders in the arts. With the Arts Medal, we honor their exceptional talents and achievements. This year, Matt Damon ’92 is honored as the recipient of the 2013 Harvard Arts Medal.

Damon’s versatility and passion as an actor—evident during his years at Harvard not only in undergraduate stage productions, but also via small roles in films, including Mystic Pizza (1988) and School Ties (1992)— hardly prepared audiences and critics for the one-two punch of Good Will Hunting (1997). Recipient of nine Academy Award nominations, it won two including Best Original Screenplay for Damon and his writing partner Ben Affleck. The rest is Hollywood history: Since that triumph, Damon has commanded the big screen in a variety of roles; formed the production company LivePlanet to produce film, television, and new media projects; and produced and appeared in the History Channel project The People Speak based on the book co-written by the late historian Howard Zinn. Damon also co-founded H20 Africa, now known as Water.org, a nonprofit organization that has provided access to safe water and sanitation in Africa, South Asia, and Central America.

The eyes have it

I

n 1963, Robert Gardner left his studio at the Peabody Museum to offer the first filmmaking courses at the newly built Carpenter Center for the Visual Arts. His vision for filmmaking at Harvard created the opportunity for generations of students to make films as part of their Harvard education. Taught by some of the world’s most influential filmmakers—including visitors Dušan Makevejev, Caroline Leaf, Miklós Jancsó, Jan Lenica, Chantal Akerman, Hal Hartley, Raúl Ruiz, Yvonne Rainer, Philippe Grandrieux, and David Chung, as well as faculty members Alfred Guzzetti, Ruth Lingford, Ross McElwee, Lucien CastaingTaylor, Stephen Prina, Robb Moss, and Amie Seigel— students over the past 50 years have produced film and video animation, fiction, and nonfiction, works in installation, and all types of visual experimentation. This is daily life at the Carpenter Center. Celebrating the Carpenter Center’s 50th anniversary, the Department of Visual and Environmental Studies has created a showcase of work produced by our students over the years. With this presentation, VES highlights the range of film and video that has been realized at Harvard in the past half-century—and imagines what student work might look like over the next 50 years. Saturday, April 27, 1 pm and 3 pm (Program repeats.)

y experience at Harvard has shaped my work as a musician and a scholar in wonderful ways. Some events that will always stay with me include playing with the Brattle Street Chamber Players and the Bach Society Orchestra, helping Photo: Jacob Belcher/OFA. put together a performance and analysis class on the music of Arnold Schoenberg with Professor John Hamilton and Senior Lecturer Federico Cortese, learning from and performing with Professor Robert Levin, studying violin in Germany and England with a fellowship from the Office for the Arts, and of course performing at ARTS FIRST. The growing emphasis on the arts at Harvard has had a direct impact for many students and faculty. It is exciting to see a developing role for curricular and extracurricular artistic practices. These resulting opportunities are essential not only to maintain artistic practice and appreciation, but also to inform the interdisciplinary exchange that characterizes any liberal arts education. The practice of art, as the development and maintenance of craft or technique, informs creativity and independent thinking in all fields. During my time here, my academic work and my work as a performing violinist developed into one creative process. I feel lucky to have been mentored and inspired by professors, students, and administrators in all disciplines, who firmly believe in the innovative capability of the arts. —Keir GoGwilt ’13 has recently performed with the Bowdoin International Music Festival Orchestra and Greenwich Village Orchestra, at the Century Club and Harvard Club in NYC, and in collaboration with Robert Levin at Sarasota Opera House. His upcoming activities include performances at Miller Theater, Canadian Opera Company, Sanders Theatre (with Bach Society Orchestra), and Peabody Essex Museum, as well as recording compositions by Tobias Picker for Tzadik records. At Harvard, Keir studies literature, focusing on the philosophy of music performance. He was awarded an Artist Development Fellowship from the Office for the Arts in 2012.

hroughout my years at Harvard, art has defined my identity. At a time in my life when I have been trying to figure out who I am, it has helped me realize what I believe in. Through art, I have learned to value patience and precision. When I absorb new things, I visualize and combine them in novel ways. As an artist, I participate in the world Photo: Sean Duncan ’11. with greater sensitivity. I am a better listener, a more careful observer. I approach the world with heightened curiosity about the way a product is crafted or a structure formed. My mind feels flexible from letting ideas wander across boundaries. At Harvard, where it is easy to feel invisible, art has helped me honor myself. Through my photographs and my writing, I can articulate my unique voice. Remembering that I chose art amidst so many other opportunities here has strengthened my confidence. Many times I’ve followed ideas with no clue where I was going or how to get there. I’ve expended hours and energy on projects that failed; I’ve poured resources and strength into my work, only to feel disappointed and discouraged. But the process of persisting, of continuing to make art and express my vision, has assured me that I have something to say. Because I committed myself to art, I have learned how to approach each day with a sense of adventure. —Caroline Cuse ’13 is a Visual and Environmental Studies concentrator. Her photographs have been displayed at Bergamot Station and Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles, as well as at numerous Harvard venues including the Carpenter Center and Harvard Student Art Show. She also writes fiction and nonfiction, studies ceramics and figure drawing through the Office for the Arts, teaches piano, and recently learned how to play the fiddle. She was awarded an Artist Development Fellowship from the Office for the Arts in 2013–2014.

I

’m the kind of person who likes to stay behind the scenes in my artmaking. Whether it’s holding the video camera for a story I’m reporting on or sitting with a headset and a cue list during a show—I like the idea of helping make things happen seemingly on their own. It’s the process part of the production that’s the most fun for me. Those moments in the making when things don’t seem like they will turn out the way you expect—team members keep missing deadlines, rehearsals don’t seem to be getting anywhere, or the necessary funds don’t arrive on time—it’s finding ways to solve those problems creatively that I find thrilling. The show or publication that the audience sees or reads is a production that has entered its safe zone. The weeks and months of decision making, concept development, and mind-changing while racing against time until liftoff is where the real magic happens.

Photo: Wilson Yu ’11.

That’s what the arts at Harvard mean to me. Before Harvard, I had only performed as a dancer, and I never saw the process side of those productions until I assistant stage managed my first dance show four years ago. Getting to be a part of the planning— trying new things, watching them fail, making changes, and then watching new things arise from the ashes—is a whole new layer of fun that I have come to appreciate as making art. —CiCi Yu ’13 is a psychology concentrator in Pforzheimer House.

Platform 5 The material presented in this exhibition, curated by associate professor Mariana Ibanez, forms a small part of the incredible range and diversity of proposals and visions that our students and faculty have produced during the past academic year. This work is indicative of the school’s commitment to exploring and articulating transformative ideas through the power of design. Graduate School of Design, Main Gallery Thursday through Friday, 8 am–6 pm

VAC BOS: The GSD and the Making of LeCorbusier’s Carpenter Center To mark the Carpenter Center’s 50th anniversary, this exhibition sheds new light on the Center’s significance, emphasizing its largely unexamined relationship to the GSD. Drawn from the University archives, GSD Special Collections, and other sources, these videos, drawings, ephemera, and historical texts demonstrate the interplay between the polemical and political, between ideation and realization; and underscore the role of the GSD in negotiating the building’s materialization and its decades of life as a leitmotif of design thinking for students. Peter Christensen, MDESS ’09, Ph.D. ’15, curator. Graduate School of Design, Experiments Wall and Loeb Library
