Ryan Nabulsi: Photo Secession
Featuring work by: Ryan Nabulsi, Christina Price Washington

Exhibition: Sat, Sep 10, to Sat, Oct 8 2011

In many ways, Ryan Nabulsi’s camera-less photographs represent a natural conclusion to the goals of Steiglitz and Steichen in promoting pictorial photography. Relying on the manipulation of the photographic chemical process for instant photography, Nabulsi generates abstractions of lush color perhaps more akin to color field painting. He is a great cultivator of the happy accident thus chance figures prominently in his process. Like the collaborations of John Cage and Merce Cunningham, Nabulsi rolls the dice of unpredictability to create explosions of petal-like forms, a sea of green forming into a kind of tidal wave, the stratifications of a strange fossil, an ovum, a nebula.

Nabulsi says of his work:
"[It is] a collection of photographs that investigate the ontology of photography. What does it mean for something to be a photograph, to be photographic? These images walk the line between imagery, abstraction, photography and process."

About Ryan Nabulsi:
Ryan received his BA in Philosophy/Political Science from Bates College in 2006 and his MFA in Photography from the Savannah College of Art and Design in 2009.

Christina Price Washington: experimental films

In completing her Masters studies, artist Christina Price Washington plumbed what was nearest and dearest to her: her own small family. Completely devoid of sentimentality, Washington creates a document of family life using the detritus of everyday living as proxies for the motion, commotion, emotion and stillness in her own household. Photographs, photograms, and drawings preserve the goings-on with clarity and delicacy.

In this series of experimental films, we see Washington at her most playful and inventive. Lemons, postcards, and all manner of everyday objects become the focus of her exploration of the moving image.

One Block: Photographs by Dave Anderson
Jennifer Schwartz Gallery
Featuring work by: Dave Anderson

Exhibition: Sat, Sep 10, to Sat, Oct 8 2011

Hurricane Katrina caused a seismic shift to the city of New Orleans and the Gulf region. Could rebuilding ever fix what had been broken? Would the city ever get its mojo back? Would that thing, whatever it was, that was so uniquely New Orleans return, dissipate, or transform into something completely different? And what about the thousands of small communities that existed within the city—would they survive, or even flourish? What was lost was clear, but what could be recovered was not at all clear.

Following the storm, Dave Anderson spent three years repeatedly photographing a single block in the Holy Cross section of New Orleans’s Lower Ninth Ward, following both the obvious physical rebuilding of the homes as well as the evolving psychological state of its residents.

Dave Anderson’s work has appeared in magazines from Time to Esquire and is in various museum collections. His book Rough Beauty won the Santa Fe Center for Photography 2005 Project Competition, and One Block: An New Orleans Neighborhood Rebuilds was published by Aperture in 2010.

Book Signing: Sat, Sep 10, 6pm

Artist's Talk and Book Signing

Anderson will give a talk about his experience photographing a single block in the Holy Cross section of New Orleans’ Lower Ninth Ward after Hurricane Katrina.

Outlands: Land Over Time
Jennifer Schwartz Gallery
Featuring work by: Rachel Barrett, William Boling, Maude Clay, Debbie Flemming Caffery, Susan Hadorn, Jason Houston, Holly Lynton, Tom Rankin, Kathleen Robbins

Exhibition: Sat, Sep 10, to Sat, Oct 8 2011

Outlands: Land Over Time showcases the different uses and conditions of land and related built environment outside an urban setting. Focused on how the land has been cultivated, neglected or exploited, this exhibition is an attempt to trace how Americans’ approach and their stance in relation to land has changed over the past 50 years - from large corporate farms to family-owned, from tightly controlled chemical induced farming, to the more organic and sustainable. Whether looking at seasonal changes of the land or failed family farms, not only has the land itself changed, but the way photographers approach the subject has evolved both in style and content. Through thoughtful and artful documentation, photographers have been able to give us a glimpse into an evolving and changing lifestyle.

: Sat, Sep 10, 7pm - 10pm
