Exhibition: Thu, Sep 8, to Sat, Oct 22 2011

Six artists from around the world confront the idea of the indexicality of the image, the composition of the new art object and what this says about our culture and its current aesthetics. The photographers’ source materials include Flickr, Google Earth, advertising and editorial images and painters of the Dutch Golden Age. Operations on the resources include digital layering, reformatting data, curating, old-fashioned paper folding and the creation and photography of the Demand-like diorama.

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.

Photography as Propaganda: Politics & The Utopian Dream
Featuring work by: John Gutmann, Boris Ignatovich, Yevgeny Khaldei, Dorothea Lange, Arnold Newman, Alexander Rodchenko, Ivan Shagin

Exhibition: Sat, Sep 24, to Sat, Nov 12 2011

Through its history, photography has been an effective force to communicate a point of view or to advocate a cause. Stalin’s USSR used photography to motivate society toward a new social order and economic model. Roosevelt’s New Deal rallied support for an alphabet soup of federal agencies and his political aims. Others, from environmentalists to those advocating new art forms and means of expression, have utilized imagery to achieve their own objectives.

“photography abstracts real time and space…compressing what really happened into a metaphor with its’ own message”
