"Crown" at Art Museum Generates Discussion

"Crown" exhibit at the Cincinnati Art Museum.

While the Cincinnati Art Museum is closed, a sniper fires 19 rounds into a bronze cube. Video and still cameras record the bullets as they make their way from the sniper’s rifle in the museum’s front lobby, travel past more traditional works of art, and pierce the metal cube, mounted in the Great Hall. “Crown,” the work of conceptual artist Todd Pavlisko, now on display at the museum, has generated discussion and some controversy.  Matt Distel, Art Museum adjunct curator of contemporary art, joins us to discuss “Crown” and its place in the world of art.

Workers carefully lower the brass cube into place.

A new installation at the Cincinnati Art Museum juxtaposes traditional and contemporary art in an unusual way.

Oxford, Ohio native and Miami University alum Todd Pavlisko says the goal of Crown is to make people view and experience the museum's masterpieces differently. He collaborated with a sharpshooter to fire bullets through the Schmidlapp Gallery into a brass cube. The bullet's journey was captured using high-speed cameras and edited into an audiovisual experience.

Corporeal Texture: New ways to 'Get Art'

"Visualizing Feeling: Affect and the Feminine Avant-garde" is one of the driving forces behind this conference.

Many people walk into a contemporary art gallery or museum believing that they are not smart enough to 'get it.' While many contemporary artists do utilize complex theories about art, there are other ways to understand art than theories.

The Corporeal Texture Conference is a graduate student-led conference that will take place on March 1st at the University of Cincinnati.  The conference focuses on how viewers interact with a work of art on a sensory or bodily level.  The speakers at this conference will discuss the various ways textures and surfaces play in how we view or experience art.
