Jordan Schnitzer Museum of Art (JSMA)

Sundaram Tagore (UO M. Arch. 1987) is a Calcuttaborn Oxford-educated art historian, gallerist, and an award-winning filmmaker. A descendant of the influential poet and Nobel Prize-winner Rabindranath Tagore, Tagore promotes East-West dialogue through his contributions to numerous exhibitions as well as his four art galleries and their multicultural and multidisciplinary events.

In 1985, Tagore received a scholarship to go to Bangladesh to study the buildings designed by the great American architect Louis I. Kahn, including Sher-e-Bangla Nagor, also known as the Tiger City. The parliamentary complex was the beating heart of the newly formed democratic nation. As he recalls, “I was unprepared for the raw emotional power and poetic beauty of these buildings. Tiger City looked futuristic and ancient at the same time…. I traveled in the architect’s footsteps to see and experience what he experienced, to understand how this American visionary came to South Asia to build his masterpiece.

 

Programmed by Richard Herskowitz, curator of media arts, Schnitzer Cinema brings the best of experimental, documentary, and arts-focused films and videos to the JSMA each year. Schnitzer Cinema is made possible in part with a grant from the UO Office of Academic Affairs.

Programs are free, with popcorn and refreshments provided!

Planners, architects, landscape architects, developers, academics and many others will come together for presentations, sessions, and interactive workshops and charrettes to learn about the secondary impacts of emerging technologies on land uses, urban design, transportation, and real estate markets and the implications of these changes for equity, the environment, the economy, and governance.
