ACP Public Art Presents: "Volley" from Monica Cook
Atlantic Station
Featuring work by: Monica Cook

Other: Sat, Oct 8, 7pm - 9pm

The Public Art Project for ACP will be a sound activated, interactive animation (stop motion/claymation) by Monica Cook Monica 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 is a joint venture of the Guggenheim and YouTube, in collaboration with HP, and aims "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.

This 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 partake or withdrawal, knowing that they could be equally judged if their interest overrides their ideology.

This project will debut at FLUX on Sept. 30th
101 Centennial Olympic Park Drive SW
Atlanta, GA 30313

Additional opportunities to see this project:
October 21st at The Goat Farm Arts Center

365 (A Photo A Day): A Journey With An iPhone
Red Wall Studio and Gallery
Featuring work by: John Enslow

Exhibition: Sun, Oct 9, to Fri, Nov 18 2011

Taking a photo a day for 365 days is more than a challenge; it's a journey. The pressure to produce amidst the ebb and flow of life can be difficult. But it causes you to remain alive and awake to your surroundings, ever anticipating that next shot wherever life takes you. To be creative in the normalcy of life can be awkward, but I found it refreshing to look for visual interest in every view. It caused me to appreciate and enjoy the beauty of each moment for how it visually expressed itself to me.

My vehicle on this voyage was my iPhone. After years of schlepping photo gear about, I embraced the iPhone as the only equipment used to take and edit my images. What I found was that this little piece of equipment not only exceeded my expectation but
actually expanded my artistic range and visual expression.

Presented at this exhibit are some of my favorites from the 365 images. I think they
capture visual interest, beauty, emotion or just make you stop and think. I hope that
people leave living with eyes wide open and perhaps have a willingness to capture what
they see.

(Hours as listed or by appointment.)

Mohamed Bourouissa: Le Miroir (The Mirror)
Gallery See
Featuring work by: Mohamed Bourouissa

Exhibition: Mon, Oct 10, to Fri, Dec 30 2011

The exhibition is held in conjunction with the 2011 France Atlanta festival organized by the French Cultural Services in Atlanta.

The SCAD exhibitions department is pleased to present a solo exhibition of photographs by French artist Mohamed Bourouissa, guest curated by lecturer, art critic and independent curator Simon Njami. Le Miroir, The Mirror, is a way to address metaphorically any given society. In Mohamed Bourouissa's case, it is a statement on how people perceive otherness. For the mirror does not only reflect an individual image; it reflects a society in all its complexity. It shows both the unique and the multiple, and underlines the contradiction that lays in any attempt to construct an « usness ». What is the image that the French society is sending to the youth of African origins? How can you define your belonging when you are trapped in preconceptions and when your loyalty to the nation that is yours is questioned all the time? Bourouissa’s work explores those contradictions and, by playing with them, seeks to deconstruct the frozen image of the suspect that other has always been.

Bourouissa’s photographs were included in the New Museum of Contemporary Art’s exhibition Younger than Jesus in 2009. His work is included in the collections of the Fonds National d’Art Contemporain in Puteaux, France, and the Maison Européenne de la Photographie in Paris. Bourouissa was born in 1978 in Bilda, Algeria, and attended the Ecole Nationale Supérieure des Arts Décoratifs, Paris, and the Sorbonne, Paris. He currently lives and works in Paris. Visit yossimilo.com.

Simon Njami is a Paris-based independent curator, lecturer and art critic. Njami was the co-founder and editor-in-chief of Revue Noire, a journal of contemporary African and extra-occidental art. He has served as artistic director of the Bamako photography biennale from 2001-08, and he co-curated the first African pavilion at the 52nd Venice Biennale in 2007. Njami has curated numerous exhibitions of African art and photography, including Africa Remix (2004/2007) and the first African Art Fair, held in Johannesburg in 2008. Currently Njami serves as adviser for the Sindika Dokolo Collection, and he is consultant in visual arts for the French Ministry of Foreign Affairs cultural branch.

The Master, The Teachers, and The Students - Photography Today
The Hudgens Center for the Arts
Featuring work by: Lucinda Bunnen

: Thu, Oct 13, 6pm - 8pm

The Master: Lucinda Bunnen
In her artist's statements for the two collections displayed in this exhibit, Bunnen states that she will often "let go of my preconceptions and let chance and intuition take over. Being stuck with what you know often keeps you from seeing what you don’t know. With no premeditation, spontaneity can take over, which is the keystone of my best work." For the H2O All About Water collection, Bunnen focused her keen eye and artist's perceptions on a pond that others perceived as 'sick,' and discovered a wealth of beauty. Similarly, in the Mexico collection, Bunnen turned her eye and open mind to the colorful exteriors of buildings in that country and unveils the abstract beauty in their surfaces.

The Teachers: Bruce Bowman, Alexandra Kates and Becky Raffalovich
This three-man exhibit features works by Gwinnett County photography teachers, Cory Bolt, Becky Raffalovich and Breyon Willis, in an educational exhibit showcasing alternative photographic processes.

The Students: 7th Annual Shuttersense Exhibit
A 'lightly juried' exhibit of photographic works, this annual competition is open to Gwinnett County student photographers in both public and private schools.

Holly White: Cinematic Language
{Poem88}
Featuring work by: Holly White

Exhibition: Sat, Oct 15, to Sat, Nov 19 2011

Poem88 presents Holly White: Cinematic Language. Atlanta photographer Holly White creates images that, despite the minimal presence of human beings, nonetheless suggest they are markedly there: in lawn chairs, or footprints on dewy grass, or the lone automobile on an otherwise empty street. There is an enormous feeling of fullness in that emptiness. And, for the viewer, there is, also, a natural inclination to construct a narrative even if it is only loosely bound by the remnants of people. Holly White seems to be warming up as a mis-en-scene directing the story of mystery, or of longing, or of melancholy, or of something else entirely fleeting.

Agnes Varda, in her essay “On Photography and Cinema” (1984) says: “To my mind, Cinema and Photography are like a brother and sister who are enemies.... after incest.”

Holly White’s photographs seem to undo such a transgression of time. She allows the flickering view to be happily stilled.

film screenings in conjunction with Holly White: Cinematic Language Thursday, October 20, 8pm: Claire’s Knee by Eric Rohmer (1970) Thursday, November 10, 8pm: Summer Hours by Oliver Assayas (2008)

White received her BFA from ACA; her MFA from MICA.

Instant Gratification: from Polaroid to Impossible
Jennifer Schwartz Gallery
Featuring work by: Chloe Aftel, Sol Allen, David Walter Banks, Kendrick Brinson, Amber Fouts, Grant Hamilton, Michael Kennedy, John Router, Magnus Stark

Exhibition: Sat, Oct 15, to Sat, Nov 26 2011

Why has instant film been able to survive in the digital age? What is it about the material that captures people’s imagination and interest? Polaroid gave up on the film a few years ago, but since then, there has been a resurggent interest in the material. Through groups like The Impossible Project, the 20x24 studio and others, the instant material has been given a new life in the 21st century. This exhibition explores the magic of instant film by displaying different artists' approach to the material, from “straight” imagery to the very abstract.

Wet Plate and Mirrors: Photographers working with historical processes

Using these slow and labor-intensive processes, photographers are finding the power of a medium that forces a collaboration with the subject and creates stunning images with an ethereal, haunting quality.
