Ephemeral Musings: Work from and Inspired by the Afromestizo Communities of LaCosta Chica, Mexico
Hammonds House Museum
Featuring work by: Wendy Phillips

: Sun, Sep 20, 2pm - 5pm

Opening from 2pm-5pm, artist's talk at 3pm.

Exhibition: Sun, Sep 20 to Sun, Nov 15 2009

Ephemeral Musings: Work from and Inspired by the Afromestizo Communities of LaCosta Chica, Mexico

Wendy Phillips' conceptual work is informed and inspired by the ethnographic research project she has been doing with women of African and North American indigenous descent in the communities of the coastal states of Oaxaca and Guerrero, Mexico.

La Limpia Project was inspired by what she learned about Afromestizo women’s conceptualization of illness and their rituals related to healing. In this series, her body is the location of the rituals, and her photographs include the ritual objects and symbols the women use in their traditional practices.

La Sombra Series refers to the traditional Afromestizo belief that illnesses and instances of spiritual disharmony and disequilibrium occur when an aspect of an individual called La Sombra, (also known as the soul, or shadow) becomes lost or endangered. The images also represent her musings about the symbols that represent the feminine archetype.

La Costa Chica Series includes images made in the Afromestizo community of Juchitan, in the state of Guerrero, Mexico.

A Time to Dance
Georgia Perimeter College
Featuring work by: Marti Griffin

: Wed, Sep 23, 5pm - 7pm

Inspiration for the title of this dual exhibit comes from a classic and widely quoted passage.

"…A time to weep, and a time to laugh; a time to mourn, and a time to dance..." - Ecclesiastes 3:1.

What better way to depict certain aspects of life? People or places... doesn't seem to make any difference. It is all a matter of time. We become, have our time, then we are gone. One side of the gallery shows Backstreet, a former Atlanta nightspot, while the other side highlights some of my favorite funerary art images that have attracted my eye during brief travels. The nightclub Backstreet took on a life of its own and what an exciting life it was! Open twenty-four hours seven days a week for almost thirty years, there was never a dull moment. It was a place where much laughing and dancing was enjoyed by all its many patrons! Funerary art, on the other side, is a passion of mine. Cemeteries fascinate me with all the magnificent art, each piece created to honor someone. Of course, they are renowned places of weeping and mourning. After all, it is the final dance.

Business or Pleasure:
Photographs by Sarah Dorio

Sunrise Bank of Atlanta
Featuring work by: Sarah Dorio

Exhibition: Thu, Sep 24 to Tue, Dec 1 2009

Officials ask every international traveler, “Is your trip for business or pleasure?” Since childhood, Sarah Dorio has dreamed of traveling to historic places around the world. Her fascination with the mystery and romance of old world hotels and historic landmarks is evident in this dream-like series from Cairo, Giza, Sharm el-Sheikh, Rome, Milan, Bellagio and Petra, made over three years. Working with a vintage camera found on eBay, Dorio uses a vivid color film called Kodak Portra. She focuses her old camera on abstract segments of famous places that seem to fit together like puzzle pieces and ancient memories. The end result feels more like rich watercolors with softened edges, evoking moods that are both contemporary and timeless. Each image is a pure representation of the original negative and none have been manipulated digitally.

Artist Lecture by LaToya Ruby Frazier
Hagedorn Foundation Gallery
Featuring work by: LaToya Ruby Frazier

: Thu, Sep 24, 7pm - 8pm

The Notion of Family, Work by LaToya Ruby Frazier (b. 1983). Frazier's art explores her relationship with her family, similar to artists Doug Dubois and Leigh Ledare. The content, style, and immediacy of her work lead the viewer to assume she is documenting from the outside. In reality, Frazier is in front of the lens exposing her family and herself. Frazier is both content and photographer. Her work blurs the line between self-portraiture and social documentary. LaToya Ruby Frazier has been an artist in residence at Art Omi, The Center for Photography at Woodstock and Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture. Her works have been exhibited at the National Academy Museum, The New Museum, Higher Pictures, Rush Arts Gallery and Schroeder Romero Gallery. She is currently exhibiting works at the Bronx Museum. Frazier is represented by Higher Pictures.

Showing concurrently with Frazier in the Documents: City Life exhibit are: Dawoud Bey, Paul D'Amato, Wayne Miller, and Malick Sidibe.
