Ellen Carey: Ellen Carey: Dings, Pulls, and Shadows

January 20 - July 22

Since the 1990s, experimental photographer Ellen Carey has been making photographs that defy photographic conventions of depicting identifiable subjects. Instead, her works depict vibrant fields of color that are meditations on the very nature of photography as an image created by the action of light on a light-sensitive surface. The exhibition Ellen Carey: Dings, Pulls, and Shadows features seven key works that explore the artist’s interest in color, light, and the photographic process as the subject of her practice.

Josephine Sacabo: Barking At God – Retablos Mundanos

October 14 - December 31

 

In Mexico I am working hard putting the finishing touches on my new series BARKING AT GOD- RETABLOS MUNDANOS which will open on Oct 14, 2017 at A GALLERY FOR FINE PHOTOGRAPHY in New Orleans.

 

I began working on the images one day out of anguish and grief and I ended up rescued by a depth of meaning I never meant to touch really.

 

The resulting 40 images are 22X28 inch hand colored photogravures combining the graffiti of New Orleans with religious imagery from San Miguel in Mexico- the dueling iconographies of the two places I call homeI have no final judgement to make on the subjects. Each expression is presented with it’s consolations and it’s cruelties. They are what they are and I hope the viewer finds something in them that speaks to what they themselves may have experienced, needed or felt.

sad poems.

November 15, 2017 - March 4, 2018

​In his introduction to The Americans, poet Jack Kerouac claimed that photographer Robert Frank’s images “sucked a sad poem right out of America onto film.” This exhibition, sad poems., explores the notion of sadness by presenting photographs that focus on American life by artists such as Ansel Adams, Roy DeCarava, and Frank himself, and captures these poetic and tragic qualities. To investigate this relationship between photography, poetry, and sadness, and to acknowledge the universality of this emotion, the images in this show are placed into dialogue with poetry from around the world. Whether the lament of an ancient Japanese poet upon seeing a snow-covered meadow, or the eerie stillness haunting the frame of an American living room, each image and text reveal the power and ubiquity of sadness.​

This exhibition has been curated by Phillips Academy students in the course Art 400: Exploring the Addison, taught by Stephanie Sparling Williams, Assistant Curator and Visiting Scholar at the Addison Gallery.

Micro/Macro: Views of Earth by Marilyn Bridges and Jeannette Klute

September 2, 2017 - March 11, 2018

Marilyn Bridges and Jeannette Klute both chose Earth’s natural and human-touched terrain as their subject matter. Micro/Macro illustrates how photographs of the Earth on both an intimate and aerial scale can be disorienting as well as familiar, and the inherent compositional parallels between the work of two very different artists.

Bridges photographs sites around the world that show signs of past or present human activities. Looking down from the open door of a small plane flying at an altitude between 300 and 1000 feet, her aerial photographs record a visual experience that is neither like standing on the ground, nor looking out the window of a commercial jet. Her black and white images flatten Earth’s terrain into patterns of light, dark and texture. Exact scale and orientation are not clear except through detailed examination.

Klute is known for her contributions to the technical development and expressive value of color photography in the mid-1900s, when few artistic photographers used color processes. She was hired by Eastman Kodak in 1939, one of few women in the field at the time, and by 1945 was head of the visual research studio in the company’s color technology division. Klute tested a variety of subjects and environments in her research and art, often turning to nature as a source of myriad colors and textures. Her photographs of tide pools emphasize the colors and patterns in these micro environments, with overall compositions that decline to privilege particular objects but rather aim to translate the fascination and wonder she felt towards shore life.

The photographs featured in Micro/Macro: Views of Earth by Marilyn Bridges and Jeannette Klute come from the collection of the Akron Art Museum.

This exhibition is organized by the Akron Art Museum and is supported by the Ohio Arts Council.

Reception: Thurs December 7, 4-6pm

This exhibition presents images of the male body in contemporary photographs from the Mark Rice Collection. Engaging the complicated dynamics of looking at the male form, the myriad meanings, narratives, metaphors, mythologies, fears and celebrations of the male body are contemplated in the context of the history of art broadly, and post-Stonewall culture and the AIDS crisis specifically.

The exhibition is curated by Dr. James Smalls and organized by the UMBC Library Gallery.

Shared Space: A New Era

October 1, 2017 - April 22, 2018

The Aldrich Contemporary Art Museum is pleased to present Shared Space: A New Era, an exhibition of photographs and video from 1987 through 2010 that considers the world’s social, economic, and political climate over the past thirty years and how the growing impact of technology during this time, with radically increased and diversified communication, has introduced a new phase of globalization. This exhibition has been curated by Lillian Lambrechts from the Bank of America Collection and is on loan from its Art in our Communities® program.

Shared Space features contemporary artists from twelve countries: the United States, Great Britain, Canada, Germany, the Netherlands, India, Iran, Italy, Japan, Mexico, the Czech Republic, and Switzerland. These artists capture myriad spaces for communication and interaction—urban and rural landscapes, homes and backyards, city streets and plazas, and ports and terminals. The exhibition’s point of departure is 1987, a seminal year that marks the signing of the Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces Treaty by Ronald Reagan and Mikhail Gorbachev, and soon thereafter the fall of the Berlin Wall, events marking the end of the Cold War and the beginning of a new age of international exchange.

Sze Tsung Leong’s cityscapes illustrate the impact of a global economy. Thomas Ruff’s and Günther Förg’s photographs show the rapid transformation of the built environment through images of Modernist architecture constructed upon utopian ideals, now derelict and failing to realize its original intention. Photographs by Raghubir Singh, Thomas Struth, and Massimo Vitali depict masses of people gathering in public spaces from Los Angeles to Vietnam, and the Netherlands—expressing an unprecedented universality of access to information. Despite the interconnectivity of this time, a distancing and disconnect remains between individuals and groups, near and afar, as evidenced in Ben Gest’s Jessica & Samantha (2003), family members in close physical proximity who seem deeply psychologically distanced from one another. Shared Space reminds viewers of their place in the world and their role and impact on current global and interpersonal affairs while also provoking them to consider how they will contribute to “shared space” in the future.

“Bank of America is committed to strengthening artistic institutions and in turn, the communities we serve,” said Bill Tommins, Bank of America Southern Connecticut Market President. “Sharing our collection with the public through partners such as The Aldrich Contemporary Art Museum not only makes business sense for the bank, but also helps support museums in Connecticut.”

Dornith Doherty: Archiving Eden

August 12, 2017 - January 14, 2018

Over the decade, North Texas photographer Dornith Doherty has traveled the globe to construct a visual meditation on the planet’s botanical diversity by showcasing the work of international seed banks and sharing the pure aesthetic pleasure of seeds and their transformations into plants. This exhibition celebrates the completion of that project. At a time when some ecologists are suggesting that we are losing more than ten animal and plant species each day, the display provides eloquent confirmation of the close relationship between botany and biophilia.

Nature/Culture

July 15 - December 10

We often think of nature as that which stands beyond humanity and culture as that which reflects people’s achievements. But rarely is the matter so simple. This exhibition explores different facets of the dichotomy. Besides reflecting on how nature counterpoints and enlivens our built environment, the show recognizes the more problematic use of the term, and its cousin “natural,” when applied to snapshots, portraits, and Native American cultures.

Gwen Shockey: ADDRESSES

November 2 - November 19

Amos Eno Gallery presents ADDRESSES, an exhibition of recent works by Gwen Shockey. A panel discussion will be held on Thursday, November 16 from 6 – 8 PM at the gallery’s new location on the first floor of 56 Bogart Street in Brooklyn, NY.

ADDRESSES investigates sites of lesbian and queer community gathering in New York City. Consisting of an expanding archive of prints and oral history interviews, ADDRESSES tracks the history of the Gay Rights Movement, shifts in identity building (and shedding) and the sociopolitical conditions of the city itself over the past six decades. Shockey began working on this project in 2015 and has since gathered over a hundred addresses and names of bars, clubs and venues that once hosted lesbian and queer gatherings. Shockey traveled to locations in Brooklyn, Manhattan, Queens and the Bronx, following instructions given to her by women she interviewed, to photograph what is there now. Because many of these spaces were mafia-owned or kept hidden to protect individual identities from law enforcement there is little recorded information about their histories. ADDRESSES creates an alternate map of New York based on word-of-mouth, memory and the search for difference, community and space for free expression.

Gwen Shockey received her MFA from Pratt Institute in 2017. Her work has been exhibited nationally and in New York City venues such as A.I.R. Gallery, Equity Gallery, the Prince Street Project Space, and the Leslie-Lohman Museum, which recently acquired three of her pieces into their permanent collection. Gwen was interviewed for the Huffington Post’s “Gay Voices” column in 2013 about her artwork. She has been a member of Amos Eno Gallery since 2013 where she serves as the secretary of the Board.

Paul Bulteel: Waste Not

September 20 - November 22

The world is consuming at unprecedented rates. Three and a half million tons of waste is generated globally every day. By 2100, that figure is expected to triple to a daily rate of 11 million. With a directive to mitigate its environmental effects, Bulteel’s home country of Belgium consistently ranks one of the best in the world at recycling, boasting a rate of 62 percent. Comparatively, the US stands at 35 percent.

Waste Not exhibits scenes from the extensive recycling systems working to restore materials for reuse. Since 2013, Bulteel has photographed 50 companies active in collecting, sorting, recycling and reclaiming waste across Western Europe. His work aims to document a variety of waste streams and make viewers aware of the enormous quantities of materials left behind. Waste Not illustrates and encourages efforts to recycle waste on an unprecedented scale.
