Placing Pierre Daura

This is a daily event, running from May 10, 2014 through September 28, 2014. 11:00 AM Jordan Schnitzer Museum of Art 541-346-3027 Website
This exhibition features work of the Catalan-American artist Pierre Daura (1896- 1976) and explores his process of identity formation as interpreted through three major motivating forces: his devotion to family, his engagement with various artistic communities, and his transition from Spanish to American citizenship. The overarching theme of “place,” which connects these three themes can be understood not only as geographic location, but his psychological and emotional location throughout his life.
Martha Daura generously gifted a large collection of her Pierre Daura’s works to the Jordan Schnitzer Museum of Art and the University Of Oregon School Of Law in 2004 as a part of her mission to proliferate her father’s legacy. Led by JSMA McCosh Associate Curator Danielle Knapp and Dr, Phaedra Livingstone of Arts and Administration this exhibition was curated by University of Oregon students in The History of Art and Architecture, Anthropology, Art and Administration and the Humanities Departments.
