MAY

Lecturer:      Mindy Nierenberg 

Title :             Ethics Matter: Considerations for Fine Arts Photography in Practice and Profession

Date:              Monday, May 1 2023

Times:          7 – 8:30 pm EST via Zoom

 How are ethics relevant to fine art photography?

The College Art Association’s “Code of Ethics” comments on the difficulty of a creating a standardized code of ethics for artmaking. It states, “Artists must be responsible and accountable for their actions as they pursue their efforts to create manifestations of their humanity.” However, it also acknowledges that although standards and ethics exist, “artists highly value their ability to challenge, criticize, and transgress those standards”.  This session will provide a base of discussion for participants to think about ethical considerations and ways in which they might (or might not) be applied to their own work.

When aesthetic decisions contribute to the artist’s vision, moving beyond what is seen objectively through the camera lens, the photography is considered fine art. Ethical codes or guidelines for photography usually focus on documentary photography, given the importance of accurate representation. The lines between fine art and documentary photography can be blurred, making ethical considerations especially important. Participants will explore the ways in which a conscious ethical framework can provide a context for artmaking and a professional art practice.

We will consider ethical photography within the current social, political, and environmental climates. Although manipulation of what the eye sees has been discussed almost since photography began, photographical ethics are especially crucial now, with the impacts of social media, polarization, and denial of science and facts. How might power dynamics, inequality, social and economic justice, and human dignity be viewed within the lens of fine art photography? Although ethics might not always be applicable to the image itself, the contemplation of ethics is valuable for the development of a professional art practice.

Participants will have opportunities to view historical and contemporary images, share their viewpoints, and learn from each other as we examine personal ethics and ways that they intersect with professional fine art photography.

Artist Talk: David Alekhuogie

Artist Talk

February 8

4411 Montrose Blvd, Houston, TX, USA

Join us at the gallery on Wednesday, February 8, from 6:30 – 7:30pm to hear Los Angeles-based artist David Alekhuogie discuss his brand new work on view in I made this for you—an exhibition that explores the emotional dimensions of soul food in American society. With an autobiographical lens, the artist traces a personal history of food making and recipe sharing in his own family in order to reveal the storytelling and caregiving at the center of these practices.

The exhibition features a mixture of photographic prints alongside large-scale collaged fabric compositions on canvas. I made this for you connects the act of cooking with art-making to underscore the inherently iterative and collective nature of both practices, and ultimately exploring “what it means to express care through craft.”

Audience Q&A will follow the artist’s talk, and refreshments will be served.

I made this for you will be on view at Assembly through February 23.

“These are direct scans of floral “landscapes” that explore the space between painting and photography, microcosm and macrocosm, interiority, and the world around us. From the confines of my studio scanner, they seek to build a larger sense of the possibilities for visualizing the natural environment and how we respond to it. The scanner is a long exposure camera that offers unique possibilities for creating light and space, the cornerstones of landscape imagery. This work extends a conversation that includes medieval illuminated manuscripts, Japanese ukiyo-e prints, American landscape painting, flower arrangement, and contemporary color photography. Through these many different areas of interest, I am interested in synthesizing rich images that encourage the viewer to reconsider both our ideas about what constitutes Nature, as well as our relationship to it.”  -James Mullen
