Jerry Siegel: Geraldine
Barbara Archer Gallery
Featuring work by: Jerry Siegel

Exhibition: Fri, Sep 16, to Sat, Oct 29 2011

Alabama photographer Jerry Siegel explores identity and self-image in this compelling portrait series of Geraldine. Both artist and subject challenge the viewer to consider the choices we make in our appearance when we present ourselves to the world each day. In Geraldine’s case, her persona is deliberately bold and fanciful, yet she remains undaunted by how others might perceive her.

: Fri, Sep 16, 7pm - 9pm

ACP Public Art Presents: "Volley" from Monica Cook
Grant Park
Featuring work by: Monica Cook

Other: Sat, Oct 29, 6:30pm - 8:30pm

The Public Art Project for ACP will be a sound activated, interactive animation (stop motion/claymation) by Monica Cook Monica Cook's first stop-motion animation video "Deuce" was selected by the Guggenheim Museum as one of 25 works featured in the "YouTube Play. A Biennial of Creative Video." The global online initiative is a joint venture of the Guggenheim and YouTube, in collaboration with HP, and aims "to discover and showcase the most exceptional talent working in the ever-expanding realm of online video." Cook's work was selected from more than 23,000 videos submitted.

Her work “Volley” commissioned by ACP and co-sponsored by Flux Projects, will explore human-animal interface: Interspecies communication; animals as totems and deities in early human cultures, etc.

This animation will be activated by the sound of the audience's applause. In order for the animation to play, clapping must continue, once it ceases the visuals stop. The participation with the audience is key, they must give in order to receive, yet, if something appears slightly questionable to be applauding they must decide to continue to partake or withdrawal, knowing that they could be equally judged if their interest overrides their ideology.

Thanks to i45, this Grant Park screening of "Volley" will include a screening of the finalists from the Guggenheim's "YouTube Play" biennial.
