Atlanta Contemporary Art Center
Featuring work by: Steve Aishman, Laura Poitras, Jaimie Warren

: Sat, Oct 9, 8pm - 10pm

O’ Say Can You See? is Laura Poitras’s film installation that documents the moment of innocence when America waited for the dead to arise. Filmed in September 2001 at Ground Zero in New York, with audio recorded at the Yankees come-from-behind Game 4 World Series victory in October 2001, it is a meditation on loss and revenge.

Atlanta-based Steve Aishman and Kansas City-based Jaimie Warren are photographers who create portraits and still lifes that speak to conditions of friendship, food, popular culture, and absurdity. Their works are presented in a two-person exhibition focusing on their use of staged scenarios and snapshot aesthetics.

Chance: Atlanta
Woodruff Park
Featuring work by: Robert Ladislas Derr

Other: Tue, Oct 12, 12:15pm - 1pm

Flux Projects presents Chance: Atlanta, a public art walk performed by Robert Ladislas Derr. Interested in viewers being more than quiet observers of his work, Derr asks pedestrians to roll a die to determine his cartography through the streets. These rolls determine if he proceeds forward, goes right, left, back, spins, or stands in place. Derr began this ongoing project in late 2005 and has completed it in cities throughout the world.

Adding to the spectacle of the street, Derr dresses in a mirrored suit and wears four video cameras that capture the scenes from his front, back, and sides as he proceeds along his walk. The performance continues for approximately forty-five minutes—the average amount of time that it takes to complete all thirty commands. After completing the walk with the video cameras, Derr returns to each intersection encountered and photographs the front, back, and side views, creating a photograph cartography as well.

The four videos from the performances will be installed in Atlanta this fall. Details on date, time, and location will be available on the Flux Projects website at fluxprojects.org.

On Assignment: Photographs of Robert W. Woodruff
Schatten Gallery | Corridor Gallery
Featuring work by: Jay Leviton

Exhibition: Thu, Oct 14

Jay B. Leviton is an Atlanta-based photographer. After serving two stints in the U.S. Army Signal Corps, Leviton settled in Atlanta and began to work as a professional photographer for a wide range of corporate clients and publications, including Forbes and Sports Illustrated. His photographs of Elvis Presley were published in the 1988 book, Elvis Close-Up: Rare, Intimate Photographs of Elvis Presley in 1956.

ON ASSIGNMENT features photographs, selected by Leviton, of Robert W. Woodruff, the longtime head of The Coca-Cola Company. These compelling images demonstrate Leviton’s keen ability to reveal aspects of Woodruff’s multifaceted character not often captured by other photographers.

ON ASSIGNMENT is part of the larger exhibition, The Future Belongs to the Discontented: The Life and Legacy of Robert W. Woodruff which presents an informative and illuminating portrait of Atlanta’s most successful businessman and most generous philanthropist.

Hours: Schatten Gallery is open during regular library hours. Please call or check website prior to your visit, as hours vary throughout the year.

Other: Thu, Oct 21, 6pm - 7pm

Wm Turner Gallery
Featuring work by: Wynne Ragland

Exhibition: Thu, Oct 14, to Sat, Nov 27 2010

Wynne Ragland's eye for the true south captures not only the gothic past of southern classicism but the progressive future of a land that seems to be caught up in the head-wind of the 21st century. At one point, at one moment, they converge into his camera.

The images are printed with pigmented ink on watercolor paper giving an extra dash of southern surrealism. Photography that seems painted, or paintings too real to be fiction.

Fantastic Plastic
Jennifer Schwartz Gallery
Featuring work by: Corinne Adams, Jan Fields, Mary Anne Mitchell, Dorothy O'Connor, Christian Bradley West

: Fri, Oct 15, 7pm - 10pm

Plastic cameras, also known as toy cameras, are simple, inexpensive film cameras made almost entirely of plastic. Many were made to be given away as novelties or prizes. The Diana, an inexpensive 1960’s box camera from Hong Kong, is typically the camera most identified as a toy camera. Other cameras, such as the Chinese-made Holga, while originally intended as inexpensive mass-market cameras, have also become associated with the term. Due to their low-cost construction, plastic cameras suffer from light leaks and soft focus. The images they produce are characterized by blurring, vignetting, and distortion. These very limitations, however, have made them a valuable tool for some photographic artists, who have used these cameras to produce unique and distinctive works of art. This exhibition pairs these interesting cameras with some of the region’s most accomplished photographic artists. The result is an eclectic collection of images, each characteristic of the peculiarities of the camera, but also true to the artistry and aesthetic vision of each photographer.
