ACP Collaboration: Richard Pare
High Museum of Art
Featuring work by: Richard Pare

Lecture: Thu, Sep 19, 7pm - 9pm

Richard Pare, master photographer and founding photographic curator of the Canadian Centre for Architecture, will comment on the impact of Le Corbusier’s work on contemporary design.

Le Corbusier was one of the most influential personalities in 20th Century culture. While best know for his architecture and urban planning, his interests spanned interior design, drawing, painting and photography.

The program will include images from his portfolio of Le Corbusier’s architecture. A selected group appear in the major retrospective exhibition currently at the Museum of Modern Art in New York… Le Corbusier: An Atlas of Modern Landscapes. The exhibition will also be shown at Fodacion La Caixa in Barcelona and Madrid. The work was made possible by a grant from the AVC foundation, Moscow, and was first presented in the exhibition Le Corbusier: Creation and Secrets, from Painting to Architecture at the Pushkin Museum in Moscow.

Richard Pare studied photography and graphic design in his native England as well as at the Art Institute of Chicago. He is the author of a number of books on the subject including, Court House: A Photographic Document and Photography and Architecture: 1839-1939. His photographs of Soviet Modernist architecture were the subject of a MoMA exhibition (2007) and a major book…The Lost Vanguard. It received wide acclaim, including major museum exhibitions in Madrid, Barcelona, Berlin, Moscow and London.

Presented in partnership with Lumiere and the High Museum of Art.
This program is free, however seating is limited and must be reserved through the Woodruff Arts Center Box Office at 404-733-5000. Limit 2 tickets per person. Tickets to the Museum are sold separately.

Ready for My Close-up
Hagedorn Foundation Gallery
Featuring work by: Double Zero, Jill Frank, Mónika Sziládi

Exhibition: Thu, Sep 12, to Fri, Oct 25 2013

In the last half-century, feminism and performativity have influenced contemporary photography more than any other cultural markers. The exhibition title is taken from the exit line of Sunset Boulevard, a film which questions female identity issues, the rehearsal of the self, the gaze of the viewer and the use of the theatrical to command attention, all influenced by culture and all features of this group exhibition.

Double Zero - the collective duo of Hannah Ireland and Annie Vought - investigates how identity is shaped in interpersonal relationships. Their video Cha cha cha changes – and its accompanying still portraiture - document modes of presentation and the performance of the self using simple domestic materials, as the artists recreate each other as sculptures.

Atlanta artist Jill Frank bases her work on the American ideal of romance. Her subject/performers act out gestures of intimacy that resonate in our iconic media framework. The work challenges the industry driven “optimism commodity” of romance.

Monika Sziladi’s seamless collaged photographs investigate the tribalized social sphere of public relations, networking, trade shows and social meet ups: wherever individuals have folded everyday living into a masquerade of the extraordinary. Her images assert that attendance in this society is performance.
