Room in My Head: Staging Psychological Spaces
Gallery 1600, SCAD Atlanta
Featuring work by: Janine Antoni, Gregory Crewdson, Sarah Hobbs, Isaac Julien, Laura Letinsky, Zwelethu Mthethwa, Lori Nix, Laurie Simmons, Mickalene Thomas

Exhibition: Tue, Jul 17, to Fri, Oct 5 2012

The SCAD exhibitions department presents "Room In My Head: Staging Psychological Spaces," a group exhibition featuring contemporary photographers whose constructed or manipulated interiors present varied states of mind. These artists charge their environments with a heightened sense of drama and suspense emphasizing particular vantage points, lighting, imaginative architecture, and symbolic and often unsettling references to the human psyche. These staged spaces serve as metaphors for our emotions, fears and imaginings, and blur boundaries between the real, the unreal and the surreal.

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

John Paul Caponigro ~ Process & Perception
The Carol Vick Bynum Theatre @ the Creative Circus
Featuring work by: John Paul Caponigro

Artists Talk: Thu, Oct 4, 6:30pm - 9pm

Artist's creations come out of far more than the activities in their primary medium. How artists get there is, perhaps, just as important as where they arrive.

This is the creative process rather than the creative product.


Photographic fine artist John Paul Caponigro details the many aspects of his creative process - color, composition, drawing, iPhoneography and writing. He shows how each discipline and different modes of operating with them contribute to the completion of finished works of art. The resulting synergy is stimulating, enriching, and enlivening. While he shows you that you already know how to write, draw, and photograph, he also shows you how these seemingly separate disciplines combine dynamically to form a single creative process that results in a life's work. He reveals that the creative process is a process of exploration—a journey of discovery that offers many insights along the way and never ends. You'll be inspired to try these activities yourself, practicing them in your own ways for your own purposes, as you progress on your own creative journey.
