What’s at Stake

Southern Oregon University’s Schneider Museum of Art (SMA) reopens at 5 p.m. Thursday, Jan. 11, 2024, with a new exhibition, “What’s at Stake.”

Curated by Catharine Clark, owner and founding director of Catharine Clark Gallery in San Francisco, this exhibition will feature artists Zeina Barakeh, Al Farrow, and Masami Teraoka. This compelling exhibition explores the urgent issues of our time, delving into the mechanisms of war and colonialism while interrogating the unpredictability and legitimacy of armed conflict. It will be on view through March 23, 2024.

“What’s at Stake” sheds light on the devastating impacts of war, human rights violations, and environmental collapse, compelling viewers to pause and reflect on our collective responsibility to one another. The exhibition raises essential questions about the consequences when violence goes unchecked and challenges us to consider what is truly at stake in a world grappling with these pressing issues.

SMA Executive Director Scott Malbaurn shared, “During a recent trip to San Francisco with museum members, we visited solo exhibitions at Catharine Clark Gallery featuring Masami Teraoka, Al Farrow, and Zeina Barakeh. Recognizing the common theme of exploring the impact of war, especially for artists raised in wartime milieus like Teraoka and Barakeh alongside the sculpture of Al Farrow, which are assembled with war time munitions, we decided to present these shows collectively as “What’s at Stake.” This group exhibition becomes a poignant question and statement, resonating with contemporary violent events that seem to be happening all of the time globally.”

An opening reception will take place 5 to 7 p.m. Thursday, Jan. 11. Curator Catharine Clark and select artists will be in attendance. The opening reception is free and open to the public; complimentary wine and hors d’oeuvres will be provided. The Museum will be closed on Saturday, Jan. 13 for a private event.

New Masterworks on Loan and Highlights from the Permanent Collection will also be on view in the Entry Gallery. Museum hours will be Tuesday through Saturday 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Admission is always free, but a $5 donation is suggested.
