Hagedorn Foundation Gallery
Featuring work by: Guillermo Srodek-Hart

Exhibition: Thu, Sep 18, to Mon, Oct 27 2014

GUILLERMO SRODEK-HART – (b.1977, Argentina) drives deep into the Argentine countryside to tell human stories by pointing his camera at the spaces where people have lived and worked on a timescale and agenda separate from the familiar, contemporary urban life. Srodek-Hart’s images speak to authentic lives, as the large-format images are filled with traces of human presence, built-up over decades. The interiors of bicycle shops, bars, restaurants-on-the-side-of-the-road, butcher shops and other places where time seems to have stopped reveal both visible and invisible elements.

Stories is an inherently collaborative project as Srodek-Hart speaks with the owners of the spaces and shares with them his stories. When asked, “Why aren’t there any people in your photographs?’ he answers ‘Look closely, they are all over the place.’ Ultimately, his images of interior spaces become a metaphor for the transience of all human existence and the stories we leave behind.

Guillermo graduated from School of the Museum of Fine Arts in 2004 with a BFA in photography and he received his MFA from Mass College of Art in 2008. Guillermo has received numerous awards for his work and his work has exhibited internationally, most notably in the 55th Venice Biennale. Curated by Heidi Aishman.

Animals and Interiors/Birds of a Feather
Hagedorn Foundation Gallery
Featuring work by: Claire Rosen

Exhibition: Thu, Sep 18, to Mon, Oct 27 2014

CLAIRE ROSEN (b.1983 New Jersey)- Known as a photographer whose whimsical imagery is inspired by fairy tales and fables, Rosen presents birds that are posed against complimentary vintage wallpaper. The resulting optical illusion of visual blending is reminiscent of Victorian Optical Illusion Postcards in which the image of the bird can either be seen as a flat part of the wallpaper or as bird posing in front of the wallpaper. 
The visual relationship presented in the series between birds and wallpaper serves as the beginning of a discussion about how people see themselves in their environment. Some of the birds appear to be posing, as people would, to try and stand out from their surroundings and draw attention. Other birds turn their back to the camera and seem to want to use the wallpaper to camouflage themselves out of the center of attention. In both case, Birds of a Feather opens a dialog about the relationships between animals, humans and interior design.

Claire graduated from the Savannah College of Art and Design in 2006 with a BFA in photography. She received a liberal arts AA degree from Bard College at Simon's Rock in 2003. Claire has won numerous awards for her work and in both 2012 and 2013, Claire was included in the Forbes 30 Brightest under 30 list for Art and Design.

Hagedorn Foundation Gallery
Featuring work by: Steve Aishman

Exhibition: Thu, Sep 18, to Mon, Oct 27 2014

STEVE AISHMAN (b.1975, Michigan) – Love comes in many colors. So do love notes. Steve Aishman's work displays a permanent state of romance where shopping lists convey as much love as a sonnet. People don't send love letters anymore, but they send text acronyms like personal coded messages. DM Me CILU. In the series The Aishmans, Steve displays the latest of the 16 years worth of daily notes that he has written to his wife. Also on display are Aishman's photographs of frozen moments of domesticity that are allegories for the passions we all find in the everyday existence we share with loved ones.

Aishman graduated from Princeton with an AB in Astrophysics in 1997 and received his MFA from the Museum School in 2001. He has received numerous awards for his work and most recently had a solo show at he prestigious JCCAC in Hong Kong.

Truppe Fledermaus
Jackson Fine Art
Featuring work by: Nicholas Kahn, Richard Selesnick

Opening Reception: Fri, Sep 19, 6pm - 9pm

Nicholas Kahn and Richard Selesnick are a collaborative artist team who have been working together since they met while attending art school at Washington University in St. Louis in the early 1980s. Both were born in 1964, in New York City and London respectively. They work primarily in the fields of photography and installation art, specializing in fictitious histories set in the past or future. These may include: documentary-style panoramic and square photographs that combine absurdist fantasy and bogus anthropology; elaborately crafted artifact, costumes and sculpture, often constructed of unlikely materials such as bread or fur, painting and drawings ranging from large scale works on plaster to pages of conceptual doodling.

Their current work features the recreation of the famous Truppe Fledermaus's Memory Theatre of 1932 with its full complement of Batfolk, Greenmen, Rope-Slingers, and Death-Dancers in all theirCarnivalesque glory. Kahn & Selesnick have participated in over 100 solo and group exhibitions worldwide and have work in over 20 collections, including the Brooklyn Museum of Art, the Philadelphia Museum of Art, the Houston Museum of Art, the Los Angeles County Museum of Art and the Smithsonian Institution. In addition, they have published three books with Aperture Press, Scotlandfuturebog., City of Salt, and Apollo Prophecies.

Also, please see Kahn & Selesnick in their ACP Lecture Series event at SCAD on Oct. 15th.

As the nation’s most comprehensive center for language and literacy, the Atlanta Speech School’s four schools, five clinics and professional development center all work within each program and collaborate across all programs to help each person develop his or her full potential through language and literacy. We help children discover who they are, and develop into who they are meant to be.

For our 75th anniversary, Jack Zimmermann took 75 photos that capture the cutting-edge, passionate, life-changing work of the school. His work is permanently on display throughout the School. In addition, students were able to explore telling their own personal stories through a photography unit in art class. This special exhibition is also on display.

Join us for a special exhibition and reception honoring the work of Jack Zimmerman and of Atlanta Speech School students on Thursday, October 16 from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m.

Creole World

Featuring work by: Richard Sexton

Opening Reception: Thu, Oct 16, 7pm - 10pm

Exhibition: Thu, Oct 16, to Fri, Nov 21 2014

Creole World

Creole World is a complex, multi-layered photo essay linking New Orleans, which is frequently referred to as "the northernmost Caribbean city", with its cultural kin further south. The similarities are quite striking and at times even uncanny. There are photographs of many urban places and neighborhoods that are difficult to travel to and photograph in, such as El Chorrillo in Panama City, Panama, a poor neighborhood adjacent to Casco Viejo within the historic district of Panama City. Due to the US embargo, Cuba is inaccessible to Americans as a tourist destination and over the last half-century has become a "forbidden island" to US citizens. Richard Sexton traveled to and photographed not only in Havana, but throughout Cuba, in Cienfuegos, Trinidad, Santa Clara, Santiago de Cuba, and other locales. The culmination of these travels has resulted in Creole World, which immerses the reader in an exotic world they would never be able to see on their own.

Artists Talk: Sat, Nov 22, 2pm - 5pm

Artist Talk and Book Signing

Exhibiting artist Richard Sexton will lead a discussion of his process and sign copies of his recent publication Creole World.
