Physics Colloquium: Effective Potentials and Morphological Transitions for Binary Black-Hole Spin Precession http://www.utdallas.edu/calendar/event.php?id=1220416988?WT.mc_id=CalendarRSS http://www.utdallas.edu/calendar/event.php?id=1220416988?WT.mc_id=CalendarRSS Wednesday, Mar 4
(4 p.m. - 5:15 p.m.)

Dr. Michael Kesden (UT Dallas)

     Generic binary black holes have spins that are misaligned with their orbital angular momentum.  I will use conservation of the total angular momentum and the projected effective spin on the precession time to derive an effective potential for BBH spin precession.  This effective potential allows us to solve the orbit-averaged spin-precession equations analytically for arbitrary mass ratios and spins.  These solutions are quasiperiodic functions of time: after a precessional period the spins return to their initial relative orientations.  We classify black-hole spin precession into three distinct morphologies between which the black holes can transition during their inspiral.  Our new solutions constitute fundamental progress in our understanding of black-hole spin precession and also have important applications to astrophysical black holes.  We derive a precession-averaged evolution equation that can be numerically integrated on the radiation-reaction time, allowing us to statistically track black-hole spins from formation to merger.  This will greatly help us predict the signatures of black-hole formation in the gravitational waves emitted near merger and the distributions of final spins and gravitational recoils.

Reclaiming the F Word: In Defense of Feminism http://www.utdallas.edu/calendar/event.php?id=1220416938?WT.mc_id=CalendarRSS http://www.utdallas.edu/calendar/event.php?id=1220416938?WT.mc_id=CalendarRSS Tuesday, Mar 3 - Thursday, Mar 5

You don't have to look far to find evidence of the negative connotations hanging over the word feminism. A simple Google search throws up an excessive amount of negativity that leaves one truly baffled.

By reclaiming the F word, we are active participants in the future of gender equality. By changing perceptions of the word, we encourage more people to become feminists.

Join us on the Plinth as we encourage our UTD community to identify their inner feminist!

Love Us for Good http://www.utdallas.edu/calendar/event.php?id=1220411291?WT.mc_id=CalendarRSS http://www.utdallas.edu/calendar/event.php?id=1220411291?WT.mc_id=CalendarRSS Friday, Feb 27 - Friday, Mar 13 Location: Edith O’Donnell Arts & Technology Building 1st floor Gallery .

For the past 14 years, 500X has been the not-quite-official art incubator of Dallas. It’s an artist-run co-op that nurtures new members by providing moral support and a challenging exhibit space, while its old members have gone on to become some off the most prodigious life forms active in the Dallas art scene. — Dallas Observer, Best of Dallas, October 29, 1992

In 1975, Will Hipps moved from Massachusetts to teach at The University of Texas at Dallas and, with Richard Childers, purchased the old air conditioning warehouse and tire factory at 500 Exposition Ave in Fair Park. The rest, literally, is history. Twenty artists filled out the initial roster for the new co-op and the gallery officially incorporated in 1977. Its first show, New Spaces, opened in February of 1978. For the three and a half decades since, through shows like the juried Expo and outside invitationals like X-Select or XXX, to the still-popular Open Show (now aptly called Hot ‘N’ Sweaty as it’s staged in the sweltering summer heat), or the more recently added College Expo and co|action invitational, the members-run space has fostered and encouraged and uplifted and shoved into the Great Big World the next generation of artists. And I should know.

Eager yet unassuming in 2011, fresh off of more life changes than I care to list, I submitted an application to become a member of 500X after making it into the annual juried Expo earlier in the year. At the opening reception, Scott Hilton, 500Xer and fellow photographer, put a small flyer in my hand and said, “You should apply.” I had no idea what I was doing. Thomas Fulmer, 500X member and Director of Educational Programming at Rachofsky House had curated New Texas Talent at Craighead Green that previous Fall, and fortunate to be included in the show, I felt like I knew him well enough to smile and nod if I saw him at a hypothetical grocery store (whether that’s accurate or not, I’m unsure.) But other than these two gentlemen and a few hours spent at an opening reception, I didn’t know 500X. I barely knew which way was up. I was a PhD student trying to make my way toward a relevant dissertation, wanted to make work that people wanted to see, and had nothing to lose. So I jumped right in. 500X felt like the kind of place that could give me somewhere to land.

When the phone rang in May of that year, I felt like I’d been accepted into an elite society. I’d already been in one of those at Baylor in my undergrad years, so the pride and delighted grin was familiar. And it wouldn’t stop. I was giddy with excitement and I didn’t even know all of the whys: the rich history; the traditions; the camaraderie that you hold in perfect tension with the, er, tension; the late nights coming together in true communal fashion to patch and paint walls that once held work by some of your most admired art-heroes; the early mornings patching and painting those same walls because, well, somebody has to do it.

I often talk about how much of an honor it has been to work alongside folks who have become dear friends and art partners and general inspirations. And it’s equally as humbling to note that nearly 40 years later, UT Dallas still has a strong presence in and commitment to the Dallas art scene through its support of and affiliation with 500X. Several UT Dallas students have work in this year’s College Expo juried by Susan Romans Roth and Jordan Roth of Ro2 Gallery, and a myriad have been accepted in years past. Adjunct professor Paul Booker mounted work in the 500X 35th Anniversary Show last December. Greg Metz, former 500Xer, offices just down the hall from me on the third floor of the Edith O’Donnell Arts and Technology Building, which is also home to Joan Davidow’s recently gifted contemporary art collection. In 1992, Davidow juried the first Expo at 500X and her collection includes work by several former 500X members. 

Since its inception, 500X has championed the likes of Tom Orr, Francis Bagley, Nic Nicosia, Vernon Fisher, Vincent Falsetta and others who have gone on to run university art programs, open their own galleries, curate shows that have traveled the country, and simply make money making art. In 1992, The Dallas Observer named 500X Gallery as the “Gallery Most Supportive of Local Artists.” Earlier this month, Darryl Radcliff named 500X number 10 in Canvassing, his power rankings of the top 25 non-museum art spaces in Dallas, which is just as much about the art on the walls as the gallery’s firm foundation in the community itself— another longstanding tradition—from DARE (Dallas Artists Research and Exhibition) and the McKinney Avenue Contemporary and Gray Matters and Connemara in its first 20 years to present associations with other groups such as Art Conspiracy, aphophenia underground, Deep Ellum Windows, Hatch Show Print, Homecoming! Committee, Performance SW, The Junior Ward, and Wild Pony Editions. Though in its early years many members came from the University of North Texas, today’s members spread over the entire Metroplex working in the community as educators, coaches, professionals, and mentors involved with institutions such as the Dallas Museum of Art, UNT, UT Dallas, UT Arlington, Tarleton State University, Collin College, Dallas Public Library, Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth, Gallery Project in Detroit, Urban Outfitters, and Transit Bike Company. The gallery itself is also neighbors with CentralTrak, UT Dallas’ artist residency on Exposition, and is a member of the Contemporary Art Dealers of Dallas.

No matter the ups and downs and stresses and challenges of maintaining an artist-run space, 500X endures, and the work on display in Love Us For Good shows how far 500X has come while maintaining firm roots in the raw, honest, gritty rafters of 500 Exposition—of those who have come before. From photography, printmaking, textile and painting, to installation, video, performance, and conceptual art, this new roster of 16 artists continues to embody the spirit of 500X and push visual, political, conceptual and even physical boundaries. Though other galleries and alternative exhibition spaces have come and gone, 500X has found a way to sustain art-life and continue to foster new growth. If you loved us then, love us now. If you loved us at one time, love as again—for goodness sake, for the good of art, love us. Love us for good.

The M.B. & Edna Zale Foundation is sponsoring a traveling exhibition highlighting the inspiring work of Helen Suzman, a former South African Parliamentarian who devoted her life to fighting apartheid laws, earning two Nobel Peace Prize nominations and worldwide respect. Opening Monday, February, 23, at the University of Texas at Dallas. the exhibition will also visit Austin College just north of Dallas in Sherman, Paul Quinn College, and SMU Meadows School of the Arts in collaboration with the Embrey Human Rights Program. 

The “Helen Suzman: Fighter for Human Rights” exhibition showcases four decades of photographs, personal letters, speeches and news articles, which enables attendees to discover the tremendous strength Suzman demonstrated despite facing constant animosity, anti-Semitism and intimidation from her South African colleagues and citizens. 

“The Helen Suzman exhibition vividly shows how the vision and steadfast work of one individual can truly make a difference, and how true leadership can have a multiplier effect for good,” said Jill Vexler, the “Helen Suzman: Fighter for Human Rights” exhibition manager. “We look forward to seeing the impact this story will have on conversations about today’s injustices.”

Suzman served in the South African Parliament for 36 years (1953-1989), including a 13-year period (1961-1973) as the governing body’s only member of the Progressive Party, and the sole opposition condemning apartheid. The exhibition also highlights Suzman’s enduring friendship with Nelson Mandela, which began in 1967 when the two met at the infamous Robben Island Prison. 

“There is a lot we can learn from Helen Suzman’s unwavering passion and commitment to social justice,” said Leonard Krasnow, president of the M.B. & Edna Zale Foundation. “Our board is very excited to bring this exhibition to four outstanding collegiate campuses in North Texas.”

The exhibition was conceptualized, researched and written by Millie Pimstone and graphically designed by Linda Bester. The exhibition’s U.S. tour is sponsored by the Dobkin Family Foundation and the Tolan Family Foundation, and was organized by the Isaac and Jessie Kaplan Centre for Jewish Studies and Research at the University of Cape Town, under director Dr. Milton Shain.

Whos Afraid of Chuck and George? http://www.utdallas.edu/calendar/event.php?id=1220416770?WT.mc_id=CalendarRSS http://www.utdallas.edu/calendar/event.php?id=1220416770?WT.mc_id=CalendarRSS Friday, Feb 13 - Saturday, Apr 4 Location: CentralTrak.

Opening Reception: Friday, Feb 13, 8 - 10 pm  

A visual arts roast of the artists duo Brian Jones and Brian Scott

“The Brians” as they are collectively known by the Dallas arts community have been living, loving and working together for the past 25 years.  Though they each make art works of their own, when they work collaboratively, they use the moniker “Chuck & George”.  As Chuck & George, Brian Jones and Brian Scott are alternately the protagonists and antagonists in a campy universe of their own creation.  The artists present themselves as sexy and grotesque caricatures sharing real and fabricated misadventures.  Chuck & George are a quirky and unflattering version of the Romantic Comedy.

Individually and separately, Brian Jones and Brian Scott are incredible artists.  They live, breathe and sleep art/music/film and exude a joy de vivre.  And they have legendary Halloween parties.  Their home is a funky nest that they’ve assembled from all things wonderful and wacky, mixing naughty tchotchkes with fine art within the hand-painted walls and furniture.

Recognizing the universally adored “Brians” as enormous and unique talents, curator and Director of CentralTrak Heyd Fontenot had the idea of assembling their friends for an homage exhibition.  Nearly a hundred artists were given the task of immortalizing Chuck & George.  And most have answered the call.  So, this Spring CentralTrak will host the group exhibition “Who’s Afraid of Chuck & George?” (Title borrowed from the Edward Albee play, about another alternative marriage)

 

ABOUT CENTRALTRAK

CentralTrak, The University of Texas at Dallas Artists Residency, established in 2008, is dedicated to the creation, presentation, and advancement of the contemporary arts.  As a live/work space for eight artists, it serves as a community center in the North Texas area for broad intellectual discourse around the arts.  While the residency promotes artistic experimentation through its support of production, the companion gallery encourages critical engagement in a local urban context through exhibitions and related programs. By building on the forward-thinking academic resources of the School of Arts & Humanities at The University of Texas at Dallas, CentralTrak unites artists from an expansive range of creative disciplines to extend and challenge contemporary notions of artistic practice, creative expression, and the role technology plays in these processes.

 

CentralTrak is supported in part by the generosity of numerous donors and partners from the North Texas area and The University of Texas at Dallas.
