The Printer in Residence Program at University of Otago Library’s Otakou Press in Dunedin, New Zealand was initiated in 2003 to encourage awareness of the Press’ printmaking facilities and to foster book-making within both the University and the broader arts community. Each visiting printer uses the University Library’s printing presses to produce a limited edition publication. Sarah Smith, Dartmouth College Book Arts Workshop Program Manager, was this year’s Printer in Residence.
Dartmouth and the University of Otago are both members of the Matariki Network of Universities, an international group of seven universities from seven different countries that have long-excelled in research-led education.
The five other Matariki members are: Durham University, England; Queen’s University, Canada; University of Tubingen, Germany; University of Western Australia; and Uppsala University, Sweden.
This year the Otakou Press added a new element to the residency program—an exhibit exchange. An exhibit featuring Dartmouth Book Arts Workshop was displayed in the University of Otago’s Library during Sarah’s residency, and upon her return Sarah facilitated the installation of this exhibit featuring the work of the Otakou Press’ past and present Printers in Residence.
Printing Down Under: A Matariki Exchange was curated by Donald Kerr, Special Collections Librarian at the University of Otago Library; Dennis Grady, Dartmouth Library Education & Outreach; and Sarah Smith, Book Arts Workshop Program Manager. Exhibit design by Dennis Grady.
“Power, Honor and Authority,” Samson Occom and the Founding of Dartmouth College
Rauner Library, Class of 1965 Gallery, September 6-October 28, 2016
An Exhibit Currated by Laura Braunstein and Peter Carini
As Dartmouth approaches the 250th anniversary of its founding, many of us are reflecting on the institution’s history. The idea that Dartmouth was founded as an “Indian School” prevails today as a dominant narrative among many members of the public as well as those associated with the College.
The truth behind the College’s founding is far more complex. Eleazar Wheelock’s original stated intention was to open a school to convert Native Americans to Christianity. His reasons were primarily because he literally feared for their souls, but also because he thought this mission would address the conflicts between European Americans and Native Americans. He eventually abandoned this goal in a pragmatic pursuit of financial gain and prestige. Central to this story is the life of Samson Occom, the first Native American whom Wheelock trained into the ministry. This exhibit explores Occom’s role in the founding of Dartmouth College, and the documentary history of Wheelock’s changing intentions.
Dédié à l'élégance par l’Union nationale des intellectuels
[Dedicated to Elegance by The National Union of Intellectuals]
On Exhibit 7/14/16 - 11/25/16
HISTORY: The effects of World War II on France, along with most European countries, was devastating and left the country in a stage of stunned disbelief and social disarray. In August of 1944, France was liberated from its four-year German occupation. In the months following this event, a rally cry was sent to reunite and rebuild France. The organization L’Union nationale des intellectuels (The National Union of Intellectuals), or UNI, was federated in June of 1945 for this purpose (Sapiro, 442).
SERVIR LA GRANDEUR ET LES INTÉRÊTS SUPÉRIEURS DE LA FRANCE, C'EST ORGANISER L'EXPORTATION DE L'INTELLIGENCE Á UNE ÉPOQUE OÙ IL S'IMPOSE DE NE NÉGLIGER AUCUNE DES RESSOURCES DE LA NATION.
MANIFESTE DE L'UNION NATIONALE DES INTELLECTUELS, AVRIL 1945
TO SERVE THE GREATNESS AND SUPERIOR INTERESTS OF FRANCE, IS TO ORGANIZE THE EXPORT OF INTELLIGENCE IN AN ERA WHERE IT IS NECESSARY NOT TO NEGLECT ANY OF THE NATION'S RESOURCES.
The subject matter of Dédié à l'élégance (Dedicated to Elegance) was the midinette (seamstress/working girl). Prior to WWII these women were the iconic figure of a thriving capitalistic culture that bustled with consumer goods and haute couture (Tilburg, 282). Included with this publication were shop advertisements, a gallery brochure titled: Quelques toiles sur l'élégance féminine dans la peinture (Several Paintings on the Elegance of Women in Painting), and a brochure for a fashion show titled Les Robes blanches (The White Dresses), which included the work of leading fashion designers, such as Balenciaga, Bruyère, Carven, Mad Carpentier, Maggy Rouff, Nina Ricci, Raphael, Schiaparelli, Vera Borea, and Worth. The proceeds from the publication and its contributors went to La Mansion de la Midinette.
ARTISTS: The art work included in the publication was produced by renowned and emerging artists. This list includes Christian Berard, Jean Effel, André Fougeron, Valentine Hugo, Marie Laurencin, Henri Matisse, Pablo Picasso, and Louis Touchagues.
AUTHORS: The literary ideas espoused in this publication include an expansive range of intellects such as Jean Cassou, Lisa Deharme, Paul Eluard, Boris Kochno, Galerie Maratier, Armand Salacrou, Andre Ulmann, and Jean Wiener.
