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.

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

Fall Line Press and Jennifer Schwartz Gallery present an artist talk and book signing with Dave Anderson. 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. He will also sign copies of his book, One Block: An New Orleans Neighborhood Rebuilds, published by Aperture in 2010.

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.

Instant Gratification: from Polaroid to Impossible
Jennifer Schwartz Gallery
Featuring work by: Chloe Aftel, Sol Allen, David Walter Banks, Kendrick Brinson, Amber Fouts, Grant Hamilton, Michael Kennedy, John Router, Magnus Stark

Exhibition: Sat, Oct 15, to Sat, Nov 26 2011

Why has instant film been able to survive in the digital age? What is it about the material that captures people’s imagination and interest? Polaroid gave up on the film a few years ago, but since then, there has been a resurggent interest in the material. Through groups like The Impossible Project, the 20x24 studio and others, the instant material has been given a new life in the 21st century. This exhibition explores the magic of instant film by displaying different artists' approach to the material, from “straight” imagery to the very abstract.
