Hogue 125 Original: Sinister Beauty opening Copy
November 3, 2022, 5:00 pm-7:00 pmFree
The University of Tulsa is excited to celebrate what would have been the 125th birthday of artist Alexandre Hogue, former head of TU’s Department of Art and namesake of the Alexandre Hogue Gallery located in Phillips Hall. Students enrolled in the curatorial practice and programming course this fall are organizing two exhibitions in his honor. The first, Hogue 125 Original, showcases works by the artist, and the second, Hogue 125 Inspired, is a juried exhibition of themes represented in Hogue’s work.
Hogue 125 Original: Sinister Beauty opens Nov. 3, 2022, and explores the fearful sublime within nature, politics and ourselves. Drawing on the artist’s work from Special Collections in TU’s McFarlin Library and the School of Art, Design, and Art History, as well as local collectors, the exhibition features pieces from throughout the artist’s career, with early paintings from the 1920s and ’30s, striking political drawings from the 1940s and abstract compositions from the 1950s until the end of his life.
5-6 p.m. – Curators’ talk, Jerri Jones Lecture Hall, 211 Phillips Hall
6-7 p.m. – Opening reception, Alexandre Hogue Gallery, Phillips Hall
The exhibition may be viewed in the Alexandre Hogue Gallery, Monday through Friday, 9 a.m.-4:30 p.m.
