Jefferson Pinder's "Lazarus"
SALTWORKS
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.

Photographer Jerry Siegel documents the Black Belt region of the American South with an unflinching gaze.

His determined eye reveals unexpected depths in his subjects, inviting viewers to ‘come and set a spell’ in the company of his images. With compassion and without haste, he captures the essence and extremes of the American South.

ACP 11 My Atlanta - Photo Book Fair
Piedmont Park Communty Center

Exhibition: Sat, Oct 17, 9am - 1pm

One of the many effects of photography’s rising popularity has been a boom in photographic publishing. Photo-books, and ways to make them, are proliferating, now that the tools to make your own have moved to the desktop (or laptop!) ACP thought it would be great to provide an opportunity for photographers who have published books (on their own, or with publishers) to present their books for sale at a small photo book fair at Piedmont Park’s Community Center, in conjunction with the My Atlanta Exhibit. A portion of the proceeds of this event will go to the Piedmont Park Conservancy.

If you'd like to participate in the My Atlanta Book Fair, please sign-up!
