What Does Democracy Look Like?

October 1 - December 23

Leading up to the 2020 presidential election, the MoCP has invited seven faculty members from various departments at Columbia College Chicago to mine the MoCP’s permanent collection of nearly 16,000 objects. Each curator will interpret the museum’s collection to consider what democracy means to them, and how photographic images record and shape our understanding of current and historical events.

Bruno V. Roels: Sensory Memory

June 25 - October 31

Bruno V. Roels’ new edition for Gallery FIFTY ONE is called ‘Sensory Memory’.

The title refers to the memory process that allows individuals to retain impressions of sensory information after the original stimulus has ceased. The title is also a nod to the way the prints were made: the photographic paper was moved during exposure in the dark room, so instead of a photograph of one palm tree, the image becomes a multiple of that same image.

All prints in the edition are different and some have been touched with ink. This edition fits perfectly in Roels’ oeuvre: it touches on the nature of the analogue photographic process, playing with repetition and variation, while using his favorite imagery: palm trees.

Acting Out: Cabinet Cards and the Making of Modern Photography

August 14 - November 1

Acting Out: Cabinet Cards and the Making of Modern Photography offers the first-ever in-depth examination of the photographic phenomenon of cabinet cards. Cabinet cards were America’s main format for photographic portraiture through the last three decades of the nineteenth century. Inexpensive and sold by the dozen, they transformed getting one’s portrait made from a formal event taken up once or twice in a lifetime into a commonplace practice shared with family and friends.

Ervin A. Johnson: Variations On A Theme

September 18 - November 6

Variations On A Theme is a nod to the technical influence of jazz within the series, but also how that genre reflects the life experiences of Black people. Our experiences as Americans are nuanced, riddled with complexity. Racism functions, in the same way, adapting to the times and hiding behind pillars of privilege. The Black spirit shifts too, renegotiating trauma into beauty and triumph; a call and response.

#InHonor exists as a visual reminder of the power of that transformation, and the inherent tenacity of the Black spirit. Guided by variations the work explores trauma in a very tangible way via the transformation of the portrait. Paint is introduced to the photographic material in a metaphoric way as a stand-in for physical and mental abuse done to Black bodies. Removing pigment and adding back from the photo on the first layer, in a not so accurate way becomes a commentary on the mishandling of the black body.

Dale Rio: Faces of Conservation: The Maasai Olympics

October 1 - October 31

Big Day Film Collective is happy to present photographer Dale Rio’s photographic works, Faces of Conservation: The Maasai Olympics.

Faces of Conservation: Maasai Olympics is an exhibition of Dale Rio’s portraits of Rangers and Olympic participants in Kenya, Africa as they establish a reformation of their ancestral right of passage the Maasai Olympics. The conservation group The Big Life Foundation has worked with local Kenyans to reform their ancestral practices to ones of animal conservation. Dale Rio’s analog photographs are beautiful portraits of  the participants and rangers in the Maasai Olympics as the competitive sport was reformed to revitalize the lion population and local ecosystem through The Big Life Foundation. Dale will be exhibiting her one of kind silver gelatin prints. Dale is a master darkroom print specialist, and her method includes shooting with analog film and hand printing on silver gelatin paper.

Faces of Conservation: The Maasai Olympics

In 2010, after growing increasingly concerned over the precipitous decline in local
lion populations, Maasai elders partnered with The Big Life organization in order to
create an alternative to lion killing as a rite of passage for young men. The result
was the Maasai Olympics, first held in 2012 and taking place every two years since.
In addition to individual awards for athletic performance, an award is presented to
the village that has had the most positive impact on the local ecosystem. As a result
of the Olympics, the lion population has rebounded from single digits to 200+.
The Big Life Foundation has also worked in collaboration with the Maasai to create
ways to minimize human – wildlife conflict, including compensation programs for
farmers and wildlife crossing points along roadways. These programs demonstrate
how wildlife conservation efforts can coexist alongside human interests and that
local people can (and should) play an integral role in shaping how their lands are
utilized, protected, and shared with native species. Through these programs, the
greater ecosystem – that of both wildlife and humans – in this part of Kenya has
been strengthened.
With human encroachment upon natural ecosystems on the increase, it is important
to see successful examples of communities striking a balance between human
existence and that of the natural world. This type of integration is key to preventing
future conflicts involving land ownership, poaching, resource access, and more.
In 2018, I traveled to Kenya to create portraits of the participants in the Maasai
Olympics, as well as rangers working for The Big Life Foundation. My goal was to
share images of people working on the front lines of conservation within their own
communities. From the elders who initiated collaboration to the youngsters who
participate in the Olympics to the rangers whose jobs are directly related to
conservation, all play an important role in an interconnected community of people
working to create a balance with the natural world, which is intrinsic to their way of
life.

John Edmonds: John Edmonds: A Sidelong Glance

October 23, 2020 - August 8, 2021

John Edmonds: A Sidelong Glance is presented as part of the inaugural UOVO Prize for an emerging Brooklyn artist. John Edmonds is best known for his use of photography and video to create sensitive portraits and still lifes that center Black queer experiences and reimagine art historical precedents. This is the artist’s first solo museum exhibition and features new and recent photographic portraits and still lifes of Central and West African sculptures alongside friends and acquaintances from Edmonds’s creative community in New York. These works explore the intersections of representation, modernity, and identity in the African diaspora.

For this exhibition, Edmonds was invited to engage directly with our Arts of Africa collection, photographing select objects donated to the Museum in 2015 by the estate of the late African American novelist Ralph Ellison. The presentation of the collection objects, along with Edmonds’s excerpts from scholarly texts on Baule art, considers the distinct role that individuals and institutions—from collectors to art historians to art museums—play in the bestowal of meaning, authenticity, and value. While Edmonds’s work recognizes the persistence of power imbalances, it offers new aesthetic and conceptual possibilities.

John Edmonds: A Sidelong Glance draws its title from an essay by scholar Krista Thompson that looks at perspectives on Black diaspora art history, and how they have shifted from examining relationships with Africa to questioning forms of representation in Western cultures.

Edmonds is the inaugural recipient of the UOVO Prize for an emerging Brooklyn artist. As the awardee, he receives a solo exhibition at the Brooklyn Museum, a commission for a 50×50-foot art installation on the façade of the new UOVO: BROOKLYN art storage and services facility, and a $25,000 unrestricted cash grant. The mural is on view through spring 2021.

John Edmonds: A Sidelong Glance is curated by Drew Sawyer, Philip Leonian and Edith Rosenbaum Leonian Curator, Photography, Brooklyn Museum, and Ashley James, former Assistant Curator, Contemporary Art, Brooklyn Museum (currently Associate Curator, Contemporary Art, Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum).

The UOVO Prize is made possible by

Generous support for this exhibition is provided by the Rockefeller Brothers Fund.

During this period of profound isolation and reflection, this exhibition serves as more than a historical document of the rich vitality of New York but as a beacon of hope; a reminder of a life that once was, and will surely return.

Lisa Crafts, Laura Heyman, Pixy Liao, Sven Marquardt, and Marie Tomanova: On the Inside: Portraiture Through Photography

October 3 - December 24

C24 Gallery is pleased to announce the opening of our next exhibition, On the Inside: Portraiture Through Photography, featuring the work of Lisa Crafts, Laura Heyman, Pixy Liao, Sven Marquardt and Marie Tomanova. This body of work by an international assembling of photographers encompassing cultural backgrounds and content from Germany, China, Japan, Czechoslovakia, Haiti and the US, offers a collection of images borne of deeply personal connections, resulting in intimate and revealing portraits from around the globe. The exhibition opens on Saturday, October 3rd and will be on view through Thursday, December 24th, 2020.
The artists featured in On the Inside each realize their images through distinctive versions of an insider’s perspective. Lisa Crafts spends months investigating the worlds of the environmental and social justice activists, thinkers and dreamers at the center of her animated portraits, personally sourcing natural and technological elements, such as small animals that are lovingly photographed and released back into their natural habitats with gratitude. Although the images of her subjects set against individualized backdrops may reference traditional Renaissance style portraits featuring persons seated with bucolic landscapes and symbolic elements in the background, her use of modern digital animation technology brings to life the details of their worlds in surprising and insightful ways.
Laura Heyman has spent over a decade building strong relationships with residents of the Grand Rue neighborhood of Port-au-Prince, Haiti. As an outsider in a country with a complicated history, she has imbued her long-term, ongoing portraiture project, Don’t Move Again, with a mission to upend the traditional roles between photographer and subject, rendering her as more of a conduit than a controlling voice. In a collaborative process that centers her subjects as creative directors of their own images, she has offered a platform for expression that is designed to be a joyful experience for those community members, artists, aid workers and politicians who work with her to imbue their own images with their unique voices.
Pixy Liao’s series, Experimental Relationship, ongoing since 2007, is an examination of the traditional roles assigned to partners in a heterosexual couple. Using herself and her boyfriend Moro as the subjects, she challenges expectations, as they explore notions of what is normal in the expression of a romantic bond between a man and a woman. As Pixy is Chinese and Moro is Japanese, her work also pokes at their cultural differences and the ethnic stereotypes related to their countries of origin.
Sven Marquardt is famed throughout Berlin as a notorious nightclub bouncer and gatekeeper at the world-famous Berghain. As a photographer, he has a history of chronicling the intense subculture of the German Democratic Republic in East Berlin in the 80s. Since then, Marquardt has amassed a body of intensely provocative yet intimate black and white portraits of the denizens of Berlin nightlife. In these selections from his series, Rudel, Marquardt goes beyond the intimidating exteriors of the bouncers who guard the doors of Germany’s nightclubs to glimpse their inner workings with the kind of nuanced understanding that only comes with a deep, personal solidarity.
Marie Tomanova has been widely celebrated for her ongoing series, Young American, first presented as a solo exhibition at Czech Center New York in 2018. The collection encompasses a diverse body of young Americans with a raw and penetrating honesty. The side of youth culture that Tomanova represents is a generation not bound by gender conventions. Instead, the young people in her images redefine notions of individuality, identity, and belonging in the American social landscape, epitomizing the isolation and disconnection that nonetheless binds a new generation in their otherness.
On the Inside: Portraiture Through Photography opens on Saturday, October 3rd, from 10:00am – 6:00pm. The exhibition will be on view at C24 Gallery at 560 West 24th St., through Thursday, December 24th. Masks are required for entry, and social distancing measures will be implemented.
Please note that we will be limiting the number of visitors to the Gallery at any one time. If you would like to make a reservation for a viewing on a specific day and time, please contact: deborah@c24gallery.com
