Artist-in-Residence Cayetano Ferrer Speaks at Barrick Museum March 7

The UNLV art department’s spring 2018 artist in residence, Cayetano Ferrer, lectures in the Barrick Museum of Art auditorium at 7 p.m. on Wednesday, March 7. The talk is free and open up to the public.

At the core of Ferrer’s practice is the treatment and transmutation of cultural items and signs, pulling from popular iconography to art historic artifacts. These kinds usually get to the artist’s attention with complex, and often uncertain, histories connected. Consequently, the work typically adds to the chronological unpredictability of the topic, and at other times exposes obfuscated stories embedded in the forms. His work within and around the institutions accountable for protecting and providing items of cultural significance presents concerns about the procedure of mediation that is necessarily carried out by museums. Operating in these and other places, the physical and historical absences that attend cultural fragments have actually ended up being a site for Ferrer to diffuse the limits of the art things and utilize context as both a framing device and product.

Ferrer was awarded a 2015 Art + Technology Lab grant from the Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA) and in 2013, Ferrer was an Artadia Award for visual art. His latest solo exhibit, Tropos, was staged in a former grain mill in Buenos Aires Argentina, and he has recently shown at group reveals at the Henie Onstad Kunstsenter in Oslo (2017) and the Institute of Contemporary Art in Philadelphia (2017 ). In 2015, Ferrer understood his first solo museum exhibit at the Santa Barbara Museum of Art. Ferrer’s work has actually been exhibited at the Hessel Museum of Art in New York City (2015 ); at the Swiss Institute in New York City (2014 ); in partnership with other artists, musicians and designers at Human being Resources, Los Angeles (2014 ); at the Los Angeles Municipal Art Gallery in Barnsdall Park and a billboard in Hollywood as part of Made in LA (2012 ), the Hammer Museum’s first Los Angeles biennial.

Cliven Bundy speaks to Independent American Party of Nevada


L.E. Baskow Cliven Bundy answers a few more questions following an interview in front of Metro Police Headquarters on Wednesday, Jan. 10, 2018.

Friday, Feb. 23, 2018|6:12 p.m.

SPARKS– Southern Nevada rancher and state’s rights activist Cliven Bundy is bringing his brand name of politics to an event of like-minded conservative libertarians in Northern Nevada.

Bundy, 71, was set to give the keynote speech Friday night at the Independent American Party of Nevada’s state convention in Stimulates where lots of consider him a hero. He invested nearly 23 months in jail before a federal judge in Las Vegas dismissed a criminal case last month against him and 2 of his kids stemming from an armed standoff with federal government agents at his Bunkerville cattle ranch in 2014.

Joel Hansen, chairman of the Independent American Celebration of Nevada, said before the speech that Bundy’s story is among “significant guts and faith” withstanding federal “corruption and tyranny.”

The celebration, which concentrates on state and property rights, includes numerous disaffected, former Republicans. It now has 65,000 active signed up citizens in Nevada– up from about 15,000 in 2002. It’s presently the 3rd biggest political party in Nevada, making up about 4.5 percent of the active citizens.

Shortly after his release from prison last month, Bundy and his boy, Ryan, appeared at a “Liberty and Property” rally in Montana sponsored by the Coalition of Western Residential Or Commercial Property Owners.

Numerous of the Independent American Celebration’s leaders have actually been associated with legal disputes with the U.S. federal government just like Bundy’s dating to the 1990s.

In 2001, the celebration staged a charity event to cover legal costs of a Nevada rancher, Cliff Gardner, whose livestock were seized for cannot pay grazing fees on national forest land in northeast Nevada. Its 2002 Nevada gubernatorial candidate, David Holmgren, waged his own battle with the BLM over his livestock in central Nevada.

The United States Bureau of Land Management began assembling Bundy cows in April 2014 after obtaining court orders accusing Bundy for 20 years of failure to pay more than $1 million in back grazing fees and penalties to the federal government.

The ensuing standoff at the Bundy ranch 80 miles northeast of Las Vegas pitted about 3 lots greatly armed federal agents safeguarding corrals in a dry river bed versus hundreds of flag-waving protesters calling for the release of some 400 cows.

Andy Kerr, a longtime ecological activist and consultant in Oregon, is amongst those outraged that Bundy cattle are still grazing within the limits of the Gold Butte National Monument President Obama designated in 2016 about 90 miles (140 kilometers) northeast of Las Vegas.

“Now without the threat of federal criminal prosecution, the Bundy young boys are getting some speaking gigs to tell their story, extol how they beat the feds and how they are continuing to do so by not paying federal grazing costs,” Kerr composed on his Public Lands Blog on Friday.

But he stated there may be a silver lining for conservationists.

“‘The more the Bundyites spread their bunk about the illegitimacy of the federal public lands … the more the overwhelming majority of Americans remember they love America’s public lands,” Kerr stated.

So after I dropped down and came back through a corridor, and then I approached the room, got into the (stairwell) door, there was a metal bracket holding the (stairwell) door in location. When I was in that location, I was calling security dispatch to get moved to engineering. They didn’t understand anything about it, so they dispatched an engineer (Stephen Schuck) to go confirm what that was. At that time, I heard what I assumed was drilling sounds. And I thought they were in the area working somehow. As that (stairwell) door is closing, and it’s so heavy, it’ll slam, I’m walking down (the corridor) and I believe that’s what caught the shooter’s attention.”

As an engineer, I thought, ‘We’re not developing here, this late at night, we would not be doing that.’ And it was, I think outside. It wasn’t in the hallway yet. That’s when Jesús, he leaned out, and stated, ‘Take cover! Hide!’ And yelled at me, and within milliseconds, if he didn’t say that, I would’ve got hit. (Bullets) were passing behind my head and I could feel pressure,” Schuck stated.

“There was a female (visitor) that came out, and I told her to go back within, it wasn’t safe. Shortly after, that’s when Stephen (Schuck) was approaching and I informed him to ‘Stay back, and get cover.’ That’s when more rounds were dispersed,” Campos said.

“Jesús saved Stephen Schuck’s life and the lady’s life,” Ellen reiterated. “Thank you so much for being here.”

She explained why the Campos came on her program.

But it’s handy for individuals to understand what a hero you are. Because you being shot in the leg saved so many individuals’s lives.

Group speaks up versus Laxalt over background-check law


Ricardo Torres-Cortez Sen. Yvanna Cancela, D-Las Vegas, speaks from the Grant Sawyer State Office Building where Question 1 advocates satisfied on Friday, April 28, 2017,

While Attorney general of the United States Adam Laxalt addressed the National Rifle Association in Atlanta on Friday, supporters of the Concern 1 background-check step gathered in your area to ask him to “do your task” and enact the law.

The application of the law, which passed in a narrow vote throughout November’s election, was foiled in December when the FBI announced that it would not conduct background examine personal transfers of firearms in Nevada or on sales online and at weapon programs, as the expense’s language stated.

Advocates of the law have actually stressed that Laxalt, a Republican politician who is vocally opposed to Question 1, has the duty to implement the will of the citizens, something the chief law officer has actually stated is not possible because of how the costs was drafted.

“Citizens did their part. They showed up at the tally box and distinctly stated they want background checks on gun sales in the state,” stated Sen. Yvanna Cancela, D-Las Vegas, from the Grant Sawyer State Office Building where Concern 1 supporters satisfied. “It’s now on the attorney general of the United States to step forward and enact the unwritten law. Till he does that, I believe he’s going to be speaking with a lot of mad Nevadans.”

The law would have needed the majority of gun transfers and sales (outside of certified gun shops) to be completed through a licensed dealer, who would rely on FBI databases.

Background checks in Nevada presently are done through the repository run by the Department of Public Security, marking the state as one of a lots with a “point-of-contact” designation.

The FBI suggested the brand-new checks likewise be done through the repository, but Laxalt suggested that the expense’s language does not permit that.

“It is clear that the exact same people at (Friday’s) press conference are the people that failed to properly draft the central function of the act, particularly who is accountable for carrying out background checks,” a spokeswoman for Laxalt’s workplace stated in an email declaration on Friday. “As Nevada’s chief law enforcement agency, and in keeping with our dedication to maintain the rule of law, we are deeply worried about the prospect of district lawyers across the state enforcing criminal sanctions for an individual’s failure to perform an act that is impossible to carry out.”

The speeches at Friday’s occasion pushed Laxalt to implement the measure however did not use clear guidelines on how he should do that.

They did passionately go over the results of violence.

“In a city that prospers on hotels striving for full occupancy every night, I’m here today to ask Attorney General Adam Laxalt to decrease the tenancy of our shelter, which is full nearly every night with females and children running away harmful situations with their lives in jeopardy,” stated Liz Ortenburger, executive director of Safe Nest. “Nevada’s background check laws … make it far too simple for domestic abusers to buy weapons without background checks. As our chief law officer, it is (Laxalt’s) task to enforce all Nevada’s laws regardless if he concurs with them.”

Honey Borla, of Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America, who explained herself as a gun owner, said she hasn’t lost hope that the background check procedure will eventually be carried out.

She stated that occasions such as the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting are outrageous and have actually steered her into advocacy. “(Laxalt) feels like he cannot honor this law due to the fact that of a technicality, then I’m quite sure we’ll find a method to close the loophole.”

In February, Question 1 supporters filed a huge public records request to state and federal agencies relating to the measure, the Las Vegas Sun formerly reported. Details on exactly what was requested weren’t disclosed.

They have said Laxalt should work with state and federal companies to resolve the concerns surrounding implementation. Nevada’s Legislature can’t make modifications to a voter-approved law for 3 years after it’s passed.
