As a collective, Rawiya’s photographers respect the human dignity of the stories they tell, pooling resources and vision to produce in-depth photo-essays and long-term projects.

Relative Connections: New Work by Stephen Marc
Emory Visual Arts Gallery
Featuring work by: Stephen Marc

Opening Reception: Thu, Sep 27, 5:30pm - 7:30pm

Stephen Marc is a contemporary American griot who uses photography to construct thematic mélanges of metaphor and memory. He is a digital montage artist whose work provides a visual interpretation of American history with an emphasis on the black experience. His images weave more than 500 years of African American life, history and culture into a digital quilt comprised of family snapshots, photographs of historical sites, documents and other remnants alongside modern cultural references. Woven together, Marc’s images create powerful narratives that obviate the boundaries of time and space, which converge to produce moving and evocative commentaries.

Marc’s work has been published in numerous books and publications, and in three monographs, including his most recent, Passage on the Underground Railroad. He has been awarded the Aaron Siskind Foundation Fellowship and the Visual Arts Fellowship in Photography, and he received the Elizabeth and Mallory Factor Prize in 2009. Marc is a tenured professor at Arizona State University.

Exhibition: Wed, Sep 19, to Sat, Dec 8 2012

Woodruff Arts Center Piazza
Featuring work by: Fritz Lang, Martin Matalon, Sonic Generator

Film Screening: Thu, Sep 27, 8:30pm


Sonic Generator presents a free screening of Fritz Lang's 1927 science fiction masterpiece, “Metropolis,” with a live performance of a new musical score by Martin Matalon, in a unique outdoor setting at the Woodruff Arts Center. “Metropolis,” a milestone of German expressionism and an inspiration for science fiction films such as “Blade Runner” and “The Matrix,” portrays a dystopian world in which the poor tend to futuristic machines and inevitably clash with the wealthy elite. Recently found footage in Argentina has restored “Metropolis” to its original length.

Sonic Generator's performance—featuring sixteen instrumentalists and electronic sounds—will present the American premiere of Matalon's score for this newly restored edition. Performed on the piazza at the Woodruff Arts Center with the film screened dramatically onto the High Museum of Art, “Metropolis” will showcase an iconic film and cutting-edge music in a unique space. Bring your own beach chairs and blankets and settle in for an unforgettable experience.

Presented by Sonic Generator, the contemporary music ensemble in residence at Georgia Tech, in partnership with the Woodruff Arts Center, Alliance Francaise, the Goethe Institut, Flux Projects, and the French-American Fund for Contemporary Music.

Joel Sternfeld

ACP Lecture Series - Joel Sternfeld
High Museum of Art - Hill Auditorium
Featuring work by: Joel Sternfeld

Lecture: Thu, Sep 27, 7pm

From the beginnings of color photography as an artistic medium, Joel Sternfeld has been one of the field's most influential and enduring practitioners. With a career spanning nearly forty years, Sternfeld's work continues to inspire each successive generation of photographers when they load sheets of film into their view cameras.

Available in classic photobooks like American Prospects, Stranger Passing, and On This Site, Sternfeld's work shines a keen eye on America's visual (im)possibilities, from the grand gesture of the Space Shuttle piggybacking a jumbo jet, to the quiet street portrait of a woman wearing a pink suit carrying a caged bunny. Sternfeld's eye has the omniscience of someone who's clearly seeing everything at once, and yet knows exactly where to place his tripod to capture what the rest of us wouldn't be able to imagine.

Yet Sternfeld's fascinations don't remain in the ironic, his investigations of nature (Oxbow Archive) and the High Line before it became the "High Line" reveal an artist in touch with nearly every aspect of what makes America America; the uniqueness of its people, the fragility of nature in the face of the built environment, and how the past consistently reveals (and underscores) the present.

Presented in partnership with the High Museum of Art.

This program is free, however seating is limited and must be reserved through the Woodruff Arts Center Box Office at 404-733-5000. Limit 2 tickets per person.
