Anne Berry: Behind Glass
Rankin Arts Photography Center
Featuring work by: Anne Berry

Exhibition: Mon, Oct 1, to Thu, Oct 25 2012

Rankin Arts Photography Center presents the inaugural solo exhibition of Behind Glass, a series of primate photographs by Anne Berry. Dewi Lewis (Dewi Lewis Publishing, Stockport, England) writes: "I was fascinated by how distinctive her portraits of primates were. Anne photographs into enclosures where the animals are behind glass. This has a remarkable effect in terms of framing and also in the way that it adds nuances of texture that at times can be veil-like in their softness, adding to the melancholic gaze that so many of her primates evidence" (Photonews, Mai 2012). The exhibit will also include portraits of horses and other animals from the Eoh and Menagerie series.

The Rankin Arts Photography Center is located in the historic Rankin Hotel building on Broadway, in the heart of Uptown Columbus, Ga. The gallery is on the 2nd floor.

Closing Reception: Thu, Oct 25, 6pm - 8pm

Hank Willis Thomas: Believe It
Trois Gallery, SCAD Atlanta
Featuring work by: Hank Willis Thomas

Exhibition: Mon, Oct 1, to Mon, Dec 31 2012

The SCAD exhibitions department presents "Believe It," a selection of works by artist Hank Willis Thomas from his 2010 "Fair Warning" series. In these works, Thomas highlights the visual dynamics of cigarette ads aimed at African American audiences, and specifically African American women, who historically have been disproportionately targeted by the tobacco industry. The images in "Fair Warning" are re-appropriated by Thomas, who has removed the ad logos while maintaining only snippets of the original text. This manipulation, in turn, transforms the intention of the image when juxtaposed with the models' nonchalant hand gestures "sans" cigarettes. It urges a re-consideration of the depiction of blackness that is being marketed by the original ads. The exhibition also features several lenticular pieces that continue Thomas' "play" on words and meanings that remain open for interpretation.

The exhibition and reception are free and open to the public.

Seydou Keïta and August Sander: Portraits
Gallery 1600, SCAD Atlanta
Featuring work by: Seydou Keïta, August Sander

Exhibition: Mon, Oct 15, to Fri, Dec 28 2012

"Portraits," a series of works by Seydou Keïta and August Sander, presents a dynamic conversation between two modern photography masters, whose images boldly capture the social transformations of the 20th century through the faces of everyday people. Through selected portraits by Seydou Keïta of people in Mali’s capital city, Bamako, in the late 1940s and mid-1950s, alongside works from August Sander’s portfolio "Antlitz der Zeit (Face of Our Time)" from the 1920s, this exhibition explores how two prominent photographers documented shifting identities in Mali and Germany.

The exhibition and reception are free and open to the public.
