Alexander Courtman with Florian Noethe: FLO

May 3 - May 31

The series FLO is a collaboration between German photographer Alexander Courtman and his friend the German artist Florian Noethe. Alexander took a series of pictures of Florian and then handed them over to him to do whatever he wanted with them. Florian decided to lay regular everyday objects just in the right positions, and Alexander then rephotographed the pictures creating a real life double exposure.

Alexander Courtman was born in Munich, Germany in 1979.

After working for nearly twenty years as a make-up artist, and watching thousands of shoots, he picked up a camera in 2020 and started photographing.

Courtman says: “As I have to please others in my main job as a make-up artist, I decided to do what I finally wanted to do. All my photography is about my point of view on people, esthetics, sexuality, queerness and beauty. After a while I got into art photography, because I felt this is where I can express my creativity the most without any boundaries.”

Georgia O’Keeffe: Georgia O’Keeffe, Photographer

February 26 - June 12

Georgia O’Keeffe forged a career as one of the most significant artists of the 20th century. She became famous for her paintings of flowers, skyscrapers, and landscapes, yet her lifelong connection to photography has not been explored in depth until now.

Georgia O’Keeffe, Photographer is the first exhibition devoted to O’Keeffe’s work as a photographer. Nearly 100 photographs from a newly examined archive reveal the American icon’s Modernist approach to the medium. Complementing the photographs are paintings and drawings to represent the full scope of her career.

Captured on film throughout her life—in early family pictures, travel snapshots, and portraits by a cavalcade of photographic artists—O’Keeffe (1887–1986) was no stranger to the medium. She expressed her unique perspective through all aspects of her life, and by the time she began her photographic practice in the mid-1950s, her singular identity and artistry were well established.

This exhibition is organized by the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, with the collaboration of the Georgia O’Keeffe Museum, Santa Fe. Generous support for the Addison’s presentation has been provided by the Elizabeth and Anthony Enders Exhibitions Fund.

Michelle Grabner: Unremarkable Handiwork: Translations and Collections

March 5 - May 25

During 2021 and early 2022 Michelle Grabner collaborated with the Alice Austen House to create a new series of paintings and photographs inspired by the home, studio, and collections of trailblazing photographer Alice Austen. Drawing on her own studio-focused practice and Austen’s photographic documentation of her home’s interior decoration and fabric collections, Grabner’s work re-examines fabric patterns and materiality in doily making, expanding on repetitive design and layering.

Between Background and Foreground

January 20 - August 7

Last fall, LaToya Ruby Frazier’s photograph Grandma Ruby’s Refrigerator was the centerpiece for incoming students’ conversations about identity, place, and social change in the exhibition Shared Art. This spring, the conversations continue with a selection of images from the AMAM collection of American photography. From Lewis Hine’s portrait of Pittsburgh steelworkers in the early 20th century to a still life by Nan Goldin taken in the first days of quarantine in 2020, the exhibition probes how and why artists have captured personal experiences and larger social narratives in their photography.

MULTITUDES

January 24, 2021 - September 5, 2022

Many minds, one project: the American Folk Art Museum is a collection of multitudes. Marking the occasion of the Museum’s 60th anniversary, the displays on view mine this figurative expression as a metaphor for the vast breadth of the Museum’s holdings and its many creators. From its inception in the 1960s and gathering momentum over the decades, AFAM developed as a “collection of collections,” a result at once unified and expressive of numerous perspectives.

Omnipresent throughout the exhibition is the concept of multitudes as reflected in the artistic process itself—from gestures of repetition and seriality, as well as organizing acts of systematization, memorialization, inventory-taking, and the creation of casts of characters. Meanwhile, across the galleries, groupings prompt consideration of art-making and collecting as aligned creative practices, each contributing to identity-formation and world-building. Presented non-chronologically, the works are visually clustered to reveal not only their individuality but also their commonalities and underlying patterns.

Moving across four centuries, AFAM’s collection brings together a rich array of voices, experiences, and mindsets, yielding a correspondingly diverse set of objects: community-based creations rooted in long-standing traditions; functional but highly aesthetic objects reflecting widespread popular practices; distinctive works by neurodivergent individuals made outside the purview of artistic peers; works as fragments entangled in lifelong private mythologies. Rejecting artificial and discriminatory boundaries prevalent in dominant art historical narratives, by which formally trained artists are often constrained, the identity of the Museum’s collection has been formed and reformed over the years by newly-added makers and fresh ideas. The idea of multitudes invites a meditation on the complexities of the Museum’s evolving and multifaceted collection as a larger whole, constituting more than the sum of its parts.

Wendy Red Star: American Progress presents work by the artist, Wendy Red Star, who was raised on the Apsáalooke (Crow) reservation in Montana. Red Star’s work is informed by her cultural heritage and engagement with many forms of creative expression, including photography, sculpture, video, fiber arts, and performance.This exhibition, installed throughout the first floor of the museum, explores the ideas of Westward Expansion and Manifest Destiny through the lens of John Gast’s 1872 painting, American Progress. Gast’s painting exemplifies the justification of American settlers driving Indigenous communities off their land during the 19th century.
