Hagedorn Foundation Gallery
Featuring work by: Christoph Engel, Daniel Gordon, Brandon Juhasz, Jonathan Lewis, Jason Salavon, Penelope Umbrico

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.

: Sat, Sep 24, 5:30pm - 8:30pm

: Fri, Oct 21, 6:30pm - 8pm

Study of Strange Things
Solomon Projects
Featuring work by: Marcia Vaitsman

Exhibition: Thu, Sep 8, to Sat, Sep 24 2011

Study of Strange Things was created from what Vaitsman calls proto-images, images that are ephemeral or "thin" because they do not exist in her mind as full-frame photographs but as fragments of information, doubtful memories, or obscure sensations. To preserve this ephemeral condition, she uses such domestic materials as ice, chocolate, eggs, meat, wax, salt, milk, or starch; or such biological by-products as hair or wool. The materials have little monetary value, and some are difficult to store. Changes that some of the materials undergo in certain environmental conditions necessitate photographic archiving. Study of Strange Things is related to the tradition of grouping images, as in the Tarot, the Stations of the Cross, stamp collections, photo albums, and even cinematography, which articulate fragments of meaning in order to describe complex situations. The project relates to mythology and its function of explaining the existence of people prior to their having intellectual tools to write their history or to make their laws. This series shows a private, ancestral imagery and therefore describes parts of Vaitsman’s mind that sometimes seem foreign even to her.

15 x 15: The 15th Anniversary Acquisitions Exhibition
Spelman College Museum of Fine Art
Featuring work by: Sheila Pree Bright, Lalla Essaydi, LaToya Ruby Frazier, Carrie Mae Weems

Exhibition: Thu, Sep 8, to Sat, Dec 3 2011

Since the Spelman College Museum of Fine Art was established in 1996, it has methodically grown the College’s permanent collection. In recent years, through key gifts from alumnae and Friends and through careful purchases, the Museum has expanded its permanent holdings to reflect its emphasis on works by and about women of the African Diaspora. In celebration of its 15th anniversary, the Museum has aggressive plans to build upon its legacy and purchase 15 new works by an array of emerging, mid-career, and established artists. Of the 15 works on the Museum’s wish list, 9 are photographs by acclaimed artists including: Sheila Pree Bright, Lalla Essaydi, Renée Cox, LaToya Ruby Frazier, IngridMwangiRobertHutter, Myra Greene, Nandipha Mntambo, Lorna Simpson, and Carrie Mae Weems. "15 x 15: The 15th Anniversary Acquisitions Exhibition" celebrates the Museum’s milestone and presents works in the permanent collection alongside 15 soon to be acquired works. This original exhibition creates a context for the College’s past, present, and future collecting efforts and positions photography as vital to the Museum’s evolution.
