High Museum of Art
Featuring work by: Chip Simone

This exhibition of 64 color photographs by Simone showcases the results of his recent explorations, presenting a tightly focused retrospective of the past decade of his work.

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.

Exhibition: Tue, Oct 4, to Tue, Nov 1 2011

The Marina Abramović exhibition features three videos and an iconic series of photos that span the time from her first performance to her most recent works. This intimate exhibition chronicles the evolution of her performances: from her extremely physical early work to her more recent work exploring immateriality and the spiritual. Together the works showcase Abramović’s role as a pioneer in the use of performance as a visual art form.

Biography:
Marina Abramović attended the Academy of Fine Arts in Belgrade, Yugoslavia. She pioneered the use of performance as a visual art form. Abramović presented her work at institutions including The Museum of Modern Art, New York, New York, 2010; Whitney Museum of American Art, New York, 2004; State Historical Museum, Moscow, Russia, 2004; Contemporary Art Museum, Kumamoto, Japan, 2004; and Musée National d’Art Moderne, Centre Georges Pompidou, Paris, France, 1990. She received an Honorary Doctorate from The Art Institute of Chicago in 2004 and earned the 2005-06 Best Exhibition of Time-Based Art award by the Association of Art Critics. Abramović won the Golden Lion for Best Artist at the 1997 Venice Biennale.

Gail Cameron: First Row Seat

Featuring work by: Cornell Capa, Alfred Eisenstaedt, Bill Eppridge, Gordon Parks

: Thu, Oct 6, 6pm - 8pm

Gail Cameron worked as a reporter and byline writer at LIFE Magazine between 1956-1965. It was a heady, optimistic and exhilarating time; the Kennedys entered the White House, Lincoln Center opened in New York and the Beatles rocked America. In that pre-digital era, LIFE was the biggest, most successful magazine in the world and LIFE reporters and photographers were given amazing access to the pivotal personalities of the day. Cameron worked with many of the iconic photojournalists of the time --Alfred Eisenstaedt, Cornell Capa, Gordon Parks, Burke Uzzle, Bill Eppridge, Bob Gomel and many others and collected prints from the stories and events they covered.

Some of the most captivating images from this collection will be featured in Freeman's inaugural Photographs and Photobooks auction on October 21, 2011 and will be shown during the presentation. Cameron will relate the stories behind the images, providing a unique, firsthand view of famous figures such as Jackie Kennedy, the Beatles, Leonard Bernstein and Grandma Moses.

ACP Public Art Presents: "Volley" from Monica Cook
Atlantic Station
Featuring work by: Monica Cook

Other: Sat, Oct 8, 7pm - 9pm

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.

This project will debut at FLUX on Sept. 30th
101 Centennial Olympic Park Drive SW
Atlanta, GA 30313

Mohamed Bourouissa: Le Miroir (The Mirror)
Gallery See
Featuring work by: Mohamed Bourouissa

Exhibition: Mon, Oct 10, to Fri, Dec 30 2011

The exhibition is held in conjunction with the 2011 France Atlanta festival organized by the French Cultural Services in Atlanta.

The SCAD exhibitions department is pleased to present a solo exhibition of photographs by French artist Mohamed Bourouissa, guest curated by lecturer, art critic and independent curator Simon Njami. Le Miroir, The Mirror, is a way to address metaphorically any given society. In Mohamed Bourouissa's case, it is a statement on how people perceive otherness. For the mirror does not only reflect an individual image; it reflects a society in all its complexity. It shows both the unique and the multiple, and underlines the contradiction that lays in any attempt to construct an « usness ». What is the image that the French society is sending to the youth of African origins? How can you define your belonging when you are trapped in preconceptions and when your loyalty to the nation that is yours is questioned all the time? Bourouissa’s work explores those contradictions and, by playing with them, seeks to deconstruct the frozen image of the suspect that other has always been.

Bourouissa’s photographs were included in the New Museum of Contemporary Art’s exhibition Younger than Jesus in 2009. His work is included in the collections of the Fonds National d’Art Contemporain in Puteaux, France, and the Maison Européenne de la Photographie in Paris. Bourouissa was born in 1978 in Bilda, Algeria, and attended the Ecole Nationale Supérieure des Arts Décoratifs, Paris, and the Sorbonne, Paris. He currently lives and works in Paris. Visit yossimilo.com.

Simon Njami is a Paris-based independent curator, lecturer and art critic. Njami was the co-founder and editor-in-chief of Revue Noire, a journal of contemporary African and extra-occidental art. He has served as artistic director of the Bamako photography biennale from 2001-08, and he co-curated the first African pavilion at the 52nd Venice Biennale in 2007. Njami has curated numerous exhibitions of African art and photography, including Africa Remix (2004/2007) and the first African Art Fair, held in Johannesburg in 2008. Currently Njami serves as adviser for the Sindika Dokolo Collection, and he is consultant in visual arts for the French Ministry of Foreign Affairs cultural branch.

ACP Photobook Fair
Piedmont Park Community Center
Featuring work by: Various Artists

Other: Sat, Oct 22, 9am - 1pm

ACP is one of the first organizations to hold a photobook fair featuring self-published photobooks. Our third Photobook Fair will be bigger and better than ever. This event offers photographers an opportunity to show (and sell) their self-published books, and offers the public an opportunity to see (and purchase) these rare, limited-edition objects.

Photography Books are more popular than ever - and the fastest growing segment of photography books are those that are self published. With an ever growing selection of ways to publish your own book, photographers are now able to realize projects that are meant to be seen in sequence, or that translate best in book form. The only downside is that there aren't many avenues for getting your books seen outside of your circle of friends. Do not miss this rare opportunity to see these extremely limited edition works of art!
