Revisiting the South: Richard Misrach's Cancer Alley
High Museum of Art
Featuring work by: Arthur Grace, Richard Misrach

Exhibition: Sat, Jun 2, to Sun, Oct 7 2012

In 1998, the High commissioned California-based photographer Richard Misrach to create a body of work as part of the Museum’s Picturing the South series.

Misrach studied the ecological degradation of a passage of the Mississippi River between Baton Rouge and New Orleans. This is an area where a number of petro-chemical industries are based and which is sometimes referred to as Cancer Alley. Like the Western landscapes for which Misrach is best known, these photographs challenge viewers with environmental and political concerns while seducing them with evocative and lyrically beautiful large scale prints. In focusing on the delicate state of the Mississippi River, Misrach’s work signals not just the environmental challenges facing the South but also the larger costs of our modern world at the dawn of the twenty first century.

To mark the culmination and publication of this body of work in 2012, more than a decade after the project was initiated, a group of twenty-one large scale prints are presented here. This is the first time that many of these important photographs have been shown to a broad public.

Exhibition: Sat, Sep 15, to Sun, Jan 6 2013

Arthur Grace: Choose Me

Every four years, tens of millions of Americans come together on a single day to cast votes for President of the United States. In celebration of the 2012 election season, this exhibition focuses on an historical project that photojournalist Arthur Grace developed during the 1988 presidential race. The series, published as Choose Me, documents presidential candidates, including George Bush, Jesse Jackson, and Al Gore, campaigning for support as they competed for the highest office in the land. Grace’s humorous and lighthearted photographs transcend the familiar press shots of presidential candidates, capturing instead the theatrical aspects of politics and portraying the distinct personalities of each candidate outside the public eye. In moving beyond scripted speeches and sound bites, Grace’s groundbreaking essay remains fresh and insightful, and is unprecedented with regard to its depth of monographic coverage of a presidential race. His work was made with an unguarded access that has become virtually impossible to achieve today, and holds a special place in the history of independent documentary photography.

Inside the Outsider
Mason Murer Fine Art
Featuring work by: Jess Dugan, Natan Dvir, Michael Grecco, Jennifer Greenburg, Amos Mac, Rania Matar, Constanza Piaggo, Bill Steber, Brian Charles Steel, Jeffrey Whettstone

Exhibition: Fri, Sep 21, to Sat, Nov 3 2012

Inside the Outsider is a series of portraits by various established photographic artists, which explores the relationship between feelings of being an outsider and our own uniqueness. Our need for acceptance often overrides our need for individuality, and this series describes how we sublimate our true selves into someone we believe that society will reward, but our true self is still inside co-existing its subjugating replacement. The series also explores how these momentary emotions are forever captured in the static world of the photograph. The objectivity of the camera adds another layer of distance between the subject, the photograph, and the viewer. The camera captures light reflected into its lens without emotion, intent, or prejudice. The work also comments on the disconnection between the feeling of being an outsider and the physical distance between a person and other people. A person can feel like an outsider in a crowd just as easily as he or she could while physically isolated. Inside the Outsider was curated by Atlanta-based artist Brian Charles Steel.

Impaired Perceptions
Mason Murer Fine Art
Featuring work by: Brian Charles Steel

Exhibition: Fri, Sep 21, to Sat, Nov 3 2012

Atlanta based artist Brian Charles Steel created a series of black and white photographic portraits that deal with socially constructed identity and perceptions commonly had of physically impaired people. Through this body of work Steel explores the relationship between an assumed normality and the prescribed notions that are often had of others. Steel uses direct eye contact and tenebrism to challenge the viewer to see each person as an individual. His work challenges notions from the work of Diane Arbus, and refutes the misguided concept that some people are “freaks.” He uses chiaroscuro created by Rembrandt lighting to show each person’s beauty in a traditional portrait style to emphasize that physical ability should not determine how one fits into society.

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

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

THIS EVENT HAS BEEN POSTPONED TO SPRING 2013

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. Tickets to the Museum are sold separately. Parking is limited and we suggest using the Boys and Girls Club headquarters parking lot across the street from the Woodruff Arts Center. It is next to the empty lot beside MoDA.

Inspiration Echoed
Gallery 100, Woodruff Arts Center
Featuring work by: Carolyn Meltzer, Anne Patterson

Exhibition: Sat, Sep 29, to Sun, Oct 14 2012

Inspiration Echoed is a collaborative work that showcases a series of nature-inspired abstract photographs and ink and watercolor paintings. Photographer Carolyn Meltzer and painter Anne Patterson demonstrate the balance and amplification of each media’s tribute to secret glimpses of the natural world. Indeed, the two artists created the series through an iterative process whereby each was motivated by the work of the other: painting inspired by photograph, and photograph inspired by painting. The work resulting from this bi-directional synergy of ideas and energy is an intimate view of the natural world. Upon experiencing these works the viewer’s understanding of and relationship to nature is deepened.

"Anne’s work so closely resonates with my own perspective on nature and art; the beauty of her watercolors inspire me to make photographs that complement their palette, form, and sense of optimism." – Carolyn Meltzer

"Carolyn’s photographs deepen my own connection to nature. They inspire me to move beyond sight and to paint the sounds, feelings and smells of the natural world." -Anne Patterson

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.

ACP Lecture Series - Brian Ulrich
Robert C. Williams Paper Museum - GA Tech Campus
Featuring work by: Brian Ulrich

Lecture: Thu, Oct 11, 7pm

Brian Ulrich's work came to prominence through Copia, an ongoing, long-term study of American commerce that first focused on shoppers in retail big-box stores in the wake of 9/11. While President Bush's urging that Americans "go shopping" to help America recover from the terrorist attack may have been more myth than fact, Ulrich's work dives straight to the heart of American mythmaking: that a perfect, utopian future is purchasable.

His work examines vacated shopping malls (Dead Malls), retail establishments abandoned in the wake of the financial crisis (Dark Stores), and how the retail ecosystem recycles itself in second-hand stores (Thrift). While taking a conceptual approach to examining how buying-and-selling is at the root of the American ethos, Ulrich's approach is substantively aligned with his photo-documentarian forbearers. Ulrich's Dead Mall's might as well be our decade's dust bowl, and by illuminating their haunting presence, Ulrich reveals the cracks in the thinnest of facades, and that freedom isn't free, it's On Sale now!

His 2011 book from Aperture, Is This Place Great or What combines all three projects into a cohesive whole. Ulrich currently teaches at Virginia Commonwealth University in Richmond, VA.

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.
