Photography as Propaganda: Politics & The Utopian Dream
Featuring work by: John Gutmann, Boris Ignatovich, Yevgeny Khaldei, Dorothea Lange, Arnold Newman, Alexander Rodchenko, Ivan Shagin

Exhibition: Sat, Sep 24, to Sat, Nov 12 2011

Through its history, photography has been an effective force to communicate a point of view or to advocate a cause. Stalin’s USSR used photography to motivate society toward a new social order and economic model. Roosevelt’s New Deal rallied support for an alphabet soup of federal agencies and his political aims. Others, from environmentalists to those advocating new art forms and means of expression, have utilized imagery to achieve their own objectives.

“photography abstracts real time and space…compressing what really happened into a metaphor with its’ own message”

ACP Public Art Presents: "Volley" from Monica Cook
FLUX 2011
Featuring work by: Monica Cook

Other: Fri, Sep 30, 7pm - 12am

The Public Art Project for ACP 2011 will be a sound activated, interactive animation (stop motion/claymation) by Monica Cook. Cook's first stop-motion animation video Deuce was selected by the Guggenheim Museum as one of 25 works featured in the "YouTube Play - A Biennial of Creative Video". The global online initiative was a joint venture of the Guggenheim and YouTube, in collaboration with HP, aiming "to discover and showcase the most exceptional talent working in the ever-expanding realm of online video." Cook's work was selected from more than 23,000 videos submitted.

Her work “Volley” commissioned by ACP and co-sponsored by Flux Projects, will explore human-animal interface: Interspecies communication; animals as totems and deities in early human cultures, etc.

Cook's animation will be activated by the sound of the audience's applause. In order for the animation to play, clapping must continue, once it ceases the visuals stop. The participation with the audience is key; they must give in order to receive, yet, if something appears slightly questionable to be applauding they must decide to continue to applause or yield, knowing they could be equally judged if their interest overrides their ideology.

Additional opportunities to see this project:
October 8th at Atlantic Station
October 21st at The Goat Farm Arts Center
October 29th at Grant Park
