Tami Bahat: Past is Present

July 12 - August 30

Catherine Edelman Gallery is pleased to host the Chicago debut of photographs by Tami Bahat in a one person show, Past is Present. The exhibition opens July 12 and runs through August 30, 2019.

There will be an opening reception on Friday, July 12, from 5:00 – 8:00pm. The artist will be in attendance.

Los Angeles based photographer Tami Bahat (1979, Tel Aviv, Israel) will tell you she was born in the wrong era. At an early age, she realized her curiosity and interests were more aligned with the sensibility, formality, and style of dress from the Victorian era. She gravitated to photography as a teenager, “intrigued by the medium’s ability to mold the obvious into the interesting, the commonplace into the comment-worthy.” With support from her parents, who are both in the arts, she rejected the traditional path of art school and learned the history of art from books, museums and family trips, where she was exposed to the paintings of Vermeer, Botticelli and Rembrandt, whose works have had a lasting effect.

Tami Bahat’s photographic tableaus harken back to these old masters, when window light revealed quiet moments. Using iconography from the Victorian era, she assembles intimate scenes for viewers to contemplate: in The Writer, 2015, a gentleman rests his arm on a piece of paper illuminated by the flickering light of a candle; in The Dispute, 2016, two chairs sit back to back, one with a woman in profile dressed head to toe in a vintage muted colored outfit, and in the other chair sits a baboon in profile, relaxed and poised; and in The Feline, 2017, a cat sits triumphantly on a table filled with fruit, growling at the viewer, as a fish lays at its feet. Through lighting, subject matter and metaphor, Bahat’s images transport us back to an era void of technology, when simple pleasures like writing, painting, or reading was the norm.

As part of Past is Present, Tami Bahat will create various rooms styled from the past, that incorporate her vintage framed photographs on the wall. Visitors will be able to walk into a bedroom setting, a sitting room, and reading area, transporting themselves to another time when the past is present. By creating these installations, the artist invites the public to slow down and absorb the subtle nuances that exist within her work, reflecting on the quiet joys that are so often overlooked.

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.

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.

Collier Schorr: Collier Schorr: Stonewall at 50

May 19 - September 30

The Alice Austen House presents ‘Stonewall at 50’, an exhibition by artist Collier Schorr. 15 intergenerational portraits of LGBTQ+ activists and artists, celebrates the 50th Anniversary of the Stonewall Uprising. This project, generated by partnerships made in the Stonewall 50 Consortium, an organization committed to producing programming, exhibitions, and educational materials related to the Stonewall uprising and/or the history of the LGBTQ civil rights movement, brings together participants of the 1969 Stonewall Uprising with activists who have followed in their footsteps.

As part of the heady New York art world of the late ‘80s and early ‘90s, Collier Schorr’s early work mined the vernacular of postmodernism to create photographs that toe the line between documentary and fiction. Often using her subjects allegorically, Schorr’s work navigates the auspices of identity politics to ask beguiling questions about the nomenclature of selfhood. By introducing autobiographical referents and post-appropriation aesthetics into her practice, Schorr’s ongoing body of work negotiates the fluid nature of authorship and performance in relation to portraiture.

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.

David Levinthal: American Myth & Memory: David Levinthal Photographs

June 7 - October 14

Populated with toy cowboys and cavalry, Barbie dolls and baseball players, David Levinthal’s photographs reference iconic images and events that shaped postwar American society. Despite their playful veneer, Levinthal’s images provide a lens through which to examine the myths and stereotypes lurking within our most beloved pastimes and enduring heroes. In doing so, Levinthal encourages us to consider the stories we tell about ourselves—what it means to be strong, beautiful, masculine, feminine, and ultimately, American.

American Myth & Memory: David Levinthal Photographs brings together six of the artist’s best-known bodies of work to explore some myths found in American popular culture and their place in our collective memory. Created between 1984 and 2018, the series Modern Romance, American Beauties, Wild West, Barbie, Baseball, and History all explore quintessentially American themes and imagery. The exhibition includes more than 70 color photographs drawn from two recent gifts to SAAM. The exhibition is organized by Joanna Marsh, SAAM’s Deputy Education Chair, Head of Interpretation and Audience Research.
