ACP 11 Opening Reception - Le Flash
Castleberry Hill District
Featuring work by: Various Artists

Exhibition: Fri, Oct 2, 7pm - 12am

Organized by Cathy Byrd and Stuart Keeler

Once a year, Paris lights up the city with art for Nuit Blanche. Toronto does the same with all night art revelry. In Santa Monica, Glow transforms the pier, the beach and Palisades Park for art encounters from dusk to dawn.

For the second year in a row, Le Flash Atlanta will feature over 40 projects in Castleberry Hill’s streets and galleries, vacant lots and windows, warehouses and rooftops.

Fantastical art and creative events will again fill a night out in the neighborhood. Atlanta will be showered with the light and sound of installations, performance art, poetry readings, music, video projections ands other lens-based projects, an iron pour and art happenings of all sorts.

The event will illuminate the district from dusk to midnight, creating a unique cultural experience, and leaving a trace of magic and mystery in the minds of those who see it.

This event is free and open to the public.

ACP 11 Public Art Project - "Gifted"
Various Locations
Featuring work by: Corinne Adams, David Walter Banks, John Bohannon, William Boling, Diane Kirkland, Kathryn Kolb, Lynn Marshall-Linnemeier, Pam Moxley, Laura Noel, Dorothy O'Connor, Christian Bradley West, Michael West

Exhibition: Thu, Oct 1, 12am 12am

ACP is pleased to announce that Atlanta-based photographer and artist Beth Lilly has been selected by a panel of jurors to create ACP's Public Art Project for ACP 11. Her project, “Gifted”, will engage the public and transform Atlanta through the gift of 1,200 limited-edition, fine art photographs which will be distributed to the public for free during the month of October.

Beth Lilly has curated a collection of twelve photographs from participating local photographers and with oversight from the artists, created limited-edition prints (100 of each photograph, totaling 1200 prints). These artworks will be handed out free, as gifts to the public, throughout the Atlanta metro region during the ACP festival in October, in unexpected places, at unannounced times. The dates and locations for obtaining a free print will not be disclosed in advance (but you may want to keep an eye on twitter to find out when the Gifted team hits the street).

Selected from a competitive open call for proposals, Beth Lilly's project was most suited to ACP's public art mission, to infuse Atlanta with photography in an exciting, unpredictable way that directly impacts Atlantans within the flow of their daily lives. Lilly's project is also an attempt to find and cultivate new appreciators of photography and the photographic print, by providing a professionally-printed "starter print" for a potential collector. The exchange will promote local photographers while encouraging a rich dialogue about the act of gifting valuable art for free, as well as an oblique commentary on the current economy.

Photographers participating in this project include: Corinne Adams, David Walter Banks, William Boling, John Bohannon, Christian Bradley West, Diane Kirkland, Kathryn Kolb, Lynn Marshall-Linnemeier, Pam Moxley, Laura Noel, Dorothy O’ Connor, & Michael West.

To follow the progress and results of ACP 11’s Pubic Art Project, please visit gifted.acpinfo.org. ACP's Public Art project will also be featured in "Spotlight on Local Talent: Beth Lilly.

Special Thanks to John Dean.

The ACP panel of public art jurors included Curator of Modern and Contemporary Art at the High Museum, Jeffrey Grove, independent curator Lisa Kurzner; current ACP Board President Louis Corrigan; Art Papers Board President, Peter Bahouth, and Executive Director of ACP, Amy Miller.

ACP 11 Portfolio Lecture by Michelle Dunn Marsh
Grady High School
Featuring work by: Michelle Dunn Marsh

: Sat, Oct 10, 5pm - 6pm

The publishing world has changed more in the last five years than in the previous five centuries; what does this mean to the segment that is photo book publishing? Michelle Dunn Marsh will discuss some of the joys and challenges in the process of making art books today, including insights on the investment publishers and museums make in each book, the importance in considering what makes a great book, not just a portfolio of photographs, the evolutionary stages from a few prints to a finished book and the years in between, the new opportunities in self-producing books, and most important, the eternal joy and critical importance of experiencing photography in book form. Examples from a variety of books will be shown, and questions are most welcome.

Michelle Dunn Marsh is an advocate for photography and design. Affiliated with the Aperture Foundation since 1996, she currently serves as co-publisher of Aperture magazine, and develops photo-based book projects for other institutions and private clients as an award-winning book designer and as editor-at-large for Chronicle Books.

She has worked in publishing for 15 years in a variety of capacities, and has lectured nationally on art book design and publishing. Key books include a recent survey of rock and roll photographs selected by Graham Nash, and monographs by Catherine Chalmers, Carrie Mae Weems, Jock Sturges, Paul Strand, and Lino Tagliapietra, among many others. She holds an MS in Publishing from Pace University, and is on the advisory board to the Palm Springs Photo Festival and the Board of Governors for Bard College, where she received her bachelor's degree.

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!

ACP 11 Knowledge Series Presents Mary Virginia Swanson
Savannah College of Art and Design - Atlanta
Featuring work by: Mary Virginia Swanson

Workshop: Sun, Oct 18, 10:30am - 12:30pm

FINDING YOUR AUDIENCE: An Introduction to Marketing Your Photographs

In this seminar, marketing consultant/educator Mary Virginia Swanson discusses the path toward connecting your work with your desired community.

One of the most gratifying experiences for an artist is presenting their work to an appreciative audience.

Whether you wish to share your work with your local and regional communities, or take on the challenge of marketing at the national level, artists need to understand the most effective path to that audience.

Swanson will discuss effective research to determine who will be receptive audiences and how to initiate and maintain a dialogue with those individuals to whom you wish to introduce your work. Participants will learn how to effectively communicate their work in one-on-one meetings, appropriate industry gatherings, portfolio reviews and other events. She will explain the importance of presenting a strong and consistent brand, having a presence in both print and online environments (including multimedia), and maintaining awareness of industry trends and market challenges for all audiences you wish to reach.

This seminar is geared towards both to photographers who are beginning to promote their work, or those who are considering broadening their marketing to include new audiences for their photographs.

This event is free and open to the public.

Presented with SPE and SCAD.

ACP 11 Film Series Presents Jeanne Dielman
Emory University - White Hall, Room 205
Featuring work by: Chantal Akerman

Film Screening: Fri, Oct 23, 7pm - 9:30pm

Jeanne Dielman, 23 Quai du Commerce, 1080 Bruxelles (directed by Chantal Akerman, 1975), 35mm, 201 minutes Curated by Andy Ditzler

Jeanne Dielman has long been recognized as a landmark work. Yet three decades after its release it has only now become available on DVD in America, and screenings in its original film format have been rare. As part of ACP 11, the Film Love series is proud to present a new 35mm print of this classic film that continues to surprise and haunt audiences today.

Brussels, 1975: a twenty-five-year-old director, a legendary actress, and a mostly female film crew produce a movie in five weeks at a miniscule cost. Its title consists only of the protagonist’s name and street address. Almost every scene breaks cardinal rules of commercial cinema. Yet the enigmatic film has a powerful effect on audiences, and the rarity of its screenings only add to its mystique. Three decades later, Jeanne Dielman, 23 Quai du Commerce, 1080 Bruxelles is considered by many to be a masterpiece of world cinema and is voted one of the top twenty films of the twentieth century by the Village Voice.

Rarely has there been a movie harder to describe than Jeanne Dielman, for the film’s emotional power and psychological depth are ingeniously achieved through minimal onscreen action. For almost the entirety of this three-hour movie, a middle-aged housewife goes about her daily routine: shopping, cooking, cleaning, and once each afternoon meeting her daily client for sex. All of these activities take place in real time – in one notorious scene, the camera stays with Jeanne for many minutes as she peels potatoes for her son’s dinner.

Over the course of three days, as the details of Jeanne’s routines accumulate, the film draws us into an intense examination of her inner life – helped along by the brilliant cinematography of Babette Mangolte, the subtle clues in director Chantal Akerman’s script, and a mesmerizing lead performance by Delphine Seyrig. But gradually, we see Jeanne’s compulsively regular routine begin to break down, leading to a shocking conclusion.

JEANNE DIELMAN is a Film Love event. The Film Love series provides access to rare but important films, and seeks to increase awareness of the rich history of experimental and avant-garde film. The series is curated and hosted by Andy Ditzler for Frequent Small Meals.

Presented with Frequent Small Meals and the Departments of Film Studies and Women’s Studies at Emory University.

This event is free and open to the public.

ACP 11 Collaborations Presents Renée Cox
High Museum of Art - Hill Auditorium
Featuring work by: Renée Cox

: Thu, Oct 22, 7pm - 8:30pm

Renée Cox (b. 1960), a Jamaica-born, New York-based artist, is widely acclaimed for her photographic series that provoke, question, and challenge the multi-layered impact of sexism and racial prejudice. Cox, who was initially a fashion photographer, began garnering international attention in the mid-1990s when she began using her own body as the central figure in her work. Her large-format series often feature one of her alter-egos: Rajé, the larger than life superhero wearing a skintight costume with the colors of the Jamaican flag, or Mama, the nude central figure in the Yo Mama series. Through these bold protagonists she heightens the multiple dimensions of black womanhood. Additionally, she articulates her disdain for the ways that black people have traditionally been written out of art history and articulates her deep concern and sometimes outrage for societal injustices.

This program is organized by the Spelman College Museum of Fine Art in partnership with Atlanta Celebrates Photography, the Spelman College Women’s Research and Resource Center, and the High Museum of Art. It coincides with an ongoing exhibition "Undercover" at the Spelman College Museum of Art that includes the work of Renée Cox (through Dec. 5, 2009).

This program is free, however seating is limited and must be reserved. Tickets are available through the Woodruff Arts Center Box Office at 404-733-5000 and online at high.org. Tickets to the Museum are sold separately.

Alec Soth: Black Line of Woods
High Museum of Art
Featuring work by: Alec Soth

Exhibition: Sat, Aug 8, to Sun, Jan 3 2010

This exhibition of photographs by the Minnesota-based artist Alec Soth (American, born 1969) is the latest in the High Museum’s Picturing the South photography series. For this distinctive initiative the High commissions established and emerging photographers to produce new work inspired by the American South. Past participants include Dawoud Bey, Emmet Gowin, Sally Mann, Richard Misrach and Alex Webb, whose commissions have all been added to the High’s steadily growing permanent collection.

Exploring spiritual and hermetic life in the rural South, Soth traveled extensively throughout the region, capturing an unusual cast of characters living outside mainstream society. These photographs center on the landscape, flora, and fauna of the Deep South, and the people who choose to live on the margins (hermits, monks, campers and survivalists) in an array of manmade structures. The project was inspired by the writings of Flannery O’Connor, the Georgian writer whose Southern Gothic style explored social issues and revealed the cultural character of the American South. Like O’Connor’s stories, Soth’s photographs combine warmth and insight with narrative elements that convey the unique spirit of the region.

Look Again: A Selection of Photographs from the Permanent Collection
High Museum of Art
Featuring work by: Diane Arbus, Ilse Bing, William Eggleston, Ralph Eugene Meatyard

Exhibition: Sat, Aug 15, to Sun, Jan 10 2010

Mined from the High’s Permanent Collection, this exhibition investigates the intersection between reality and fiction within a photograph, through images created to subvert the viewer’s expectations. Photographers make numerous decisions when constructing a picture, utilizing the camera frame, the darkroom, light, shadows, focus, and motion to create an image that conveys complex ideas or emotions—a statement about who we are and how we live.

The unique vision of innovators like Ralph Eugene Meatyard, Diane Arbus, and William Eggleston opened up new realms of possibilities for photography as a medium of expression. Combining the inherently technical nature of photography with a spirit of experimentation, the artists featured in this exhibition have created pictures that challenge the conventional idea that photographs are straightforward purveyors of truth. Viewers are invited to unravel the complexities behind each image, and encouraged to take the time to “look again.”
