Featuring work by: Jane Robbins Kerr

Exhibition: Fri, Sep 18, to Fri, Oct 30 2009

We all know the South is home to much oldness – signs, buildings, and a way of life. With this show, I wanted to show a new slant on the South – the music, the reflections, the people, and an almost Elvis sighting.

Ground Score
Get This! Gallery
Featuring work by: Bill Daniel

Exhibition: Fri, Sep 18, to Sat, Oct 31 2009

Ground Score traces the unpredictable course of a self-taught artist who was originally turned on to the practice of documentation while participating in the skate/punk scene of Austin in the early 1980s. Included in this trip are records from a 20-year obsession with traditional rail graffiti, a bike messenger’s eye view of San Francisco’s graffiti that presaged a movement called “The Mission School”, and a range of large-format work resulting from a science and myth-based appetite for apocalyptic landscapes.

Bill Daniel’s work is traditional silver-based and represents his conviction and dedication to pre/post digital photography. He is also known for his filmmaking, “Who is Bozo Texino?” and is the author of a book on rail graffiti, “Mostly True.”

Jefferson Pinder's "Lazarus"
Featuring work by: Alejandro Aguilera, Kojo Griffin, Jefferson Pinder

Exhibition: Fri, Sep 18, to Sat, Oct 31 2009

Washington DC-based video artist Jefferson Pinder exhibits his newest performance video, “Lazarus”. Pinder presents visually engaging video work as a form of quiet activism. The human experience is revealed as a poetic journey and beauty is often found in the mudane. Pinder’s work was most recently featured in the “After 1968” exhibition at the High Museum of Art in 2008.

In “Lazarus”, a huddled mass of pedestrians spring into action to collectively move a seemingly immobile vehicle. This impromptu tribe of activists forms an intense juggernaut as Pinder guides the force from the seat of the rusty powdered blue car.

This video piece is his latest installment of the Inertia Cycle series in which Pinder documents intense physical tasks as an abstract metaphor for social struggle.

LRLL RLRR drumming performance by Harrison Haynes

Harison Haynes, photographer / performance artist / drummer for the band Les Savy Fav, presents LRLL RLRR, in which he and a collaborator play the same drum beat continuously for two hours. The performance investigates where the production of music overlaps and/or is reciprocated by the production of art as well as the iconographic role of the drum set and the drummer in film, literature, pop culture and art.
