Francesca Woodman: Portrait of a Reputation

September 20, 2019 - April 5, 2020

This exhibition presents an early episode in the artistic life of American artist Francesca Woodman (1958-81). Featuring over 40 unique, vintage prints, as well as notes, letters, postcards, and other ephemera related to the artist’s burgeoning career, this exhibition details Woodman’s creative coming-of-age primarily during the years 1975-79. Introducing this material for the first time, the exhibition is drawn from the personal collection of George Lange, a long-time friend and classmate of Woodman’s at Rhode Island School of Design.
Francesca Woodman: Portrait of a Reputation details how the artist came into her creative voice and her singular approach to photography at a notably young age. This exhibition demonstrates Woodman’s virtuosity in formation—the creative impulses that yielded a distinctive voice, and also a more nuanced understanding of the context in which she worked and which is featured so prominently in her photographs from this time. Ranging from portraits in her studio/apartment in college to self-portraits in the bucolic Colorado landscape in which she was raised, these works capture Woodman’s hallmark approach to art-making: enigmatic, rigorous, and poignant, all at once. The exhibition will also include select photographs of Woodman made by George Lange during this period. Taken together, Francesca Woodman: Portrait of a Reputation will offer a nuanced and in-depth study of this formative period in the development of this most adept artist.
The exhibition is curated by Nora Burnett Abrams, Ellen Bruss Curator & Director of Planning at MCA Denver. The accompanying publication, co-published with Rizzoli, features essays by Abrams and Drew Sawyer, curator of photographs at the Brooklyn Museum of Art.

MOMENTS OF BEING

What would such an inexperienced soul do without
the solution that a body had been”
-Clarice Lispector

Snapshots of the life within.
Echoes of thoughts and feelings expressed in the only terms I really understand which are those of light and shadow and the softening of edges.
The things expressed have already happened. Here they are remembered tenderly, in the repose of passion.

Men of Steel, Women of Wonder

October 5, 2019 - January 5, 2020

Superman and Wonder Woman are two of the most beloved icons in American pop culture. Created in times of economic adversity and war, these characters quickly emerged as beacons of American morality, representing the ideals of truth, justice, and the American way.

Men of Steel, Women of Wonder examines art world responses to Superman and Wonder Woman ranging from their Depression-era origins to today’s contemporary artist interpretations. The exhibition includes over 70 paintings, photographs, installations, videos, and more by a wide range of artists, exploring national identity, American values, social politics, and the concept of humanity.

Men of Steel, Women of Wonder is organized by Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art, Bentonville, Arkansas.

Photos, Please Do Not Bend: The Catherine Johnson Collection

October 8 - December 29

Johnson’s collection of amateur and vernacular photography will include approximately 200 photos on display, spanning multiple decades. Each group of pictures will be accompanied by a moving quote about dogs relating to the selected photographs.

The title of the exhibition, “Photos, Please Do Not Bend,” refers to a time when photographic prints, due to the time and expense in obtaining them, held more esteem as valued objects. Before the advent of the polaroid camera, one often waited for photos to arrive via mail. Envelopes were marked “Photos, Please Do Not Bend.” This collection allows a glimpse into the lives of dog owners and their relationships with their companions.

Joe Vitone: Joe Vitone: Family Records

April 27 - October 27

Joe Vitone: Family Records is an ongoing series of portraits of photographer Joe Vitone’s relatives living in and around Akron, Ohio. Begun in 1998, this body of work documents evolving interpersonal connections between parents and children, siblings, spouses, cousins and other relations within working class communities of the Rust Belt region. Shot each summer when the artist—now based in Austin, Texas—travels back to Ohio, this series features scenes from festivities such as birthday parties and weddings as well as intimate portraits set outside homes and workplaces. Touched by celebrations and struggles including marriage, divorce, addiction, new homes, unemployment, new jobs and babies, the lives of Vitone’s relatives reflect experiences common to families across the United States.

Vitone prints his images, which he captures using 8 x 10-inch and 4 x 5-inch view cameras, in both black and white and color. Featuring 55 works photographed in Akron proper, as well as in surrounding communities including Barberton, Stow and Marshallville, Family Records marks the first time a selection from this series has been exhibited in Northeast Ohio.

Joe Vitone: Family Records is organized by the Akron Art Museum with support from the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation, Ohio Arts Council and the Char and Chuck Fowler Family Foundation.

Robert W. Fichter: Experimentalist: The Art of Robert W. Fichter

August 28 - December 18

Experimentalist: The Art of Robert W. Fichter presents the first retrospective of the artist’s career in over thirty years. Drawn from his archive at UMBC, 55 works created between 1962 and 2006 highlight Fichter’s exploration of the human condition across photography, printmaking, and painting. Fichter employs shifting moods and mediums as well as wit, humor, and satire to deliver trenchant critiques of war, nuclear proliferation, and environmental disaster. Firmly rooting his expressive compositions in a strong sense of place—the surreal landscapes of his native Florida—Fichter presents a singular vision of humanity on the brink.

Weather Report

October 6, 2019 - March 29, 2020

Weather Report will reveal the sky as a site where the aesthetic, the romantic, the political, the social, and the scientific co-exist and inform one another. The depiction of weather phenomena in the visual arts is traditionally linked with either landscape painting or photography, but in the last two decades artists have increasingly turned to other media to explore weather and, by extension, the larger subject of the Earth’s atmosphere. Featuring the work of Bigert & Bergström, Barbara Bloom, Sara Bouchard, Nick Cave, Violet Dennison, Bryan Nash Gill, Andy Goldsworthy, Nancy Graves, Ellen Harvey, Ayumi Ishii, Jitish Kallat, Kim Keever, Byron Kim, Damian Loeb, Iñigo Manglano-Ovalle, Colin McMullan, Hitoshi Nomura, Pat Pickett, Sean Salstrom, and Jennifer Steinkamp, and an installation by researchers Amanda Bunce, Joel Salisbury, and Michael Vertefeuille. The exhibition will be accompanied by a publication with an essay by exhibition curator Richard Klein.

Sara Cwynar: Gilded Age

June 9 - November 10

The Aldrich presents the first East Coast exhibition of artist Sara Cwynar (b. 1985), whose practice spans photography, video, installation and bookmaking and surveys the transitory object-life of visual matter in our time of image infatuation. The exhibition features new and recent work by the artist. Using an accumulative archive of images and objects, culled from libraries, public archives, dollar stores, and eBay, Cwynar combines archival imagery and out-of-date objects with new digital technologies and archaic analogue processes to expose how images are produced, trafficked and mimed over time. Cwynar’s first museum publication, with an essay by Amy Smith-Stewart, the exhibition’s curator, accompanies the show.

Cornell Capa, Richard Avedon, Philip Trager, and others: Shutter Speed

July 30 - December 15

Comprising more than 60 works on paper from the AMAM collection, Shutter Speed explores the ability of photography to capture movement, particularly of the human body. The exhibition spans the history of photography, from the late 19th century to the end of the 20th, stretching from Eadweard Muybridge’s attempts to arrest motion with the camera shutter to Harold Edgerton’s experiments with the stroboscope, and on to Sarah Charlesworth’s appropriated images of falling subjects.

Not coincidentally, Shutter Speed also features many photographs of dancers and athletes, including recently acquired vernacular photographs from the Peter J. Cohen Collection. Conveying the elegance, physicality, fluidity, and velocity of the human body traversing space requires technical expertise and a deep sensitivity, both of which are in evidence in photographs by Cornell Capa, Richard Avedon, Philip Trager, and others. Together these images of movement attest to our fascination with the camera’s ability to catch “the moment,” in the words of André Kertész, “when something changes into something else.”

Organized by Ellen Johnson ’33 Assistant Curator of Modern and Contemporary Art Andrea Gyorody, with assistance from Amy Baylis ’20.
