Wynn Bullock: Revelations
High Museum of Art
Featuring work by: Wynn Bullock

Exhibition: Sat, Jun 14, to Sun, Jan 18 2015

Wynn Bullock: Revelations offers an unprecedented look at one of the mid-twentieth-century's most significant photographers. The show traces Bullock’s innovative career, from his early experimental work of the 1940s, through the mysterious black-and-white imagery of the 1950s and color light abstractions of the 1960s, to his late metaphysical photographs of the 1970s. Working in the American modernist tradition alongside Edward Weston, Harry Callahan, and Ansel Adams, Bullock garnered enormous acclaim during his lifetime, but the breadth of his career has remained largely in the shadows until now. The High is the first major museum in 40 years to mount a retrospective of his work.

Artists Talk: Fri, Oct 10, 7pm

Wynn Bullock Family Conversation

Photographer Wynn Bullock’s daughters, Barbara Bullock-Wilson and Lynne Harrington-Bullock, engage in a conversation about their father’s rich legacy. Moderated by the High’s Keough Family Curator of Photography and Head of Collections, Brett Abbott, the discussion will weave together intimate family memories with insightful stories behind the works currently on view in the High’s exhibition Wynn Bullock: Revelations.

Life, Jazz and Lots of Other Things
Gallery 1600
Featuring work by: Sam Nhlengethwa

Exhibition: Wed, Jul 23, to Fri, Oct 17 2014

"Life, Jazz and Lots of Other Things" travels to SCAD Atlanta from the SCAD Museum of Art, where it premiered earlier this year as Sam Nhlengethwa’s first solo museum exhibition in the U.S. Based in Johannesburg, Nhlengethwa is revered as one of South Africa’s leading contemporary artists.

Curated by Laurie Ann Farrell, SCAD executive director of exhibitions, the show features a broad cross section of the artist’s practice and themes. The show opens with a juxtaposition of works by Nhlengethwa and Romare Bearden, orienting viewers to a significant creative voice for the artist.

The exhibition also features vibrant jazz scenes, images of daily life and nation building, along with iconic works that touch on deep social issues. Paintings, installation, works on paper and tapestries provide insight into Nhlengethwa’s worldview through the eclectic array of life, jazz and lots of other things.

Paris On Ponce
Featuring work by: Julian Dillard

Exhibition: Wed, Oct 1, to Sun, Nov 30 2014

This a collection of city and landscapes. The work, unlike most landscapes, is more simple and graphic, focusing more and shape and shades. I have now started using my photographs to produce some innovative art pieces. By manipulating the print during the mounting process I create texture and pattern, adding a relief quality. I call this process “scaping.”
Large scale work is often broken up into several pieces. Some as large as 7' X 10'.
I often incorporate collectible and found objects when I display the work. Making Paris On Ponce the perfect place for this show.
In some pieces the prints are enhanced and exaggerated with acrylic paint.
Created on canvas each piece is an original, titled, signed and dated. Photographic prints also available.

Dashboard Co-Op
Featuring work by: Aint-Bad Magazine

Exhibition: Fri, Oct 10, to Sun, Oct 26 2014

The American South is both a reality and a fiction, a conceptual and a cultural entity. As such, it has been famously challenged and perpetuated through photography in the form of singular iconic images in the work of photographers like William Eggleston and in the form of the photo-essay, bridging journalism and fine art as in the historical work of Walker Evans and James Agee. Issue No. 8 of Aint-Bad Magazine, a publication founded in Savannah, Georgia, presents photographs and essays which engage in contemporary conceptions of The American South and how it is defined and being re-defined; how it effects the rest of the U.S.
and may determine the socio-cultural impact of the region as a new reality and a new fiction. Selected images from issue No.8 will be exhibited and physical copies will be available for viewing and purchasing.

ACP Lecture Series: Kahn & Selesnick
Savannah College of Art & Design
Featuring work by: Nicholas Kahn, Richard Selesnick

Lecture: Wed, Oct 15, 7pm - 8:30pm

Through photographs made at the crossroads of past & future, the collaborative artistic duo Nicholas Kahn & Richard Selesnick speculatively explore time's breadth; from a decidedly old-West-feeling future, to an expertly imagined, science-fiction past.

Kahn & Selesnick create work that's as boldly imaginative as it is grounded by fact. As hand-crafted and anachronistic as a flying machine, their work's idiosyncrasies are built with painstaking purpose in support of fantastic narratives, coaxing the viewer’s imagination to soar.

Critically acclaimed, with over 100 solo and group exhibitions worldwide, their work appeals to wide swaths of culture. From steampunk circles to historian cartographers, their pictures have an openness that beckons and welcomes, inviting engagement from all.

Special thanks to SCAD Atlanta. Sponsored by Mailchimp.

Uncommon Beauty is a group exhibition featuring an eclectic group of photographers from Georgia and beyond, all of whose work challenges the commonly held conceptions of what society deems "beautiful". Whether it's the painterly fine art photo montage of Thomas Dodd, the dark-tinged photo-illustrative work of Brent Walker, the surreal fashion photography of Max Eremine, the conceptual work of Craig Gum, the humorous story-telling of Nate Dorn, and the traditional photographic approach of Chili O, Joey Randell, Al Thumann, Ray Vargas and Gillian Duckett, this diverse group of artists are united by their portrayal of Beauty in all its forms.

ACP Film Series Presents: Through a Lens Darkly
SCADshow

Film Screening: Wed, Oct 22, 7pm - 8:30pm

For the last ten years, the ACP Film Series has been exploring the close connection between photography and film. In 2014 we are partnering with the BronzeLens Film Festival to screen the award winning film Through a Lens Darkly: Black Photographers and the Emergence of a People, the first documentary (and multimedia outreach project) that explores how African American communities have used the medium of photography to construct political, aesthetic, and cultural representations of themselves and their world. Thomas Allen Harris’s film is a chronicle of the incredible influence images have had in shaping perceptions about race.

The BronzeLens Film Festival is dedicated to bringing national and worldwide attention to Atlanta as a center for film and film production for people of color. The organization showcases films and provides networking opportunities that will develop the next generation of filmmakers. www.bronzelensfilmfestival.com

We are also planning a live photo sharing event in conjunction with this film series.

ACP Lecture Series Presents: Graciela Iturbide
Woodruff Arts Center
Featuring work by: Graciela Iturbide

Lecture: Thu, Oct 23, 7pm - 8:30pm

THIS EVENT HAS BEEN CANCELLED.

Widely celebrated as among the most significant contemporary photographers of Mexico, Graciela Iturbide has developed a rich body of work over four decades, inspired largely by a fascination with everyday life in her home country. Mentored for many years by Manuel Álvarez Bravo, her work has consistently explored the urban/rural dichotomy, while examining the intersection of tradition and rituals with Mexico's modernity.

Iturbide's photographic career has relied on the strength of her personal relationship to her subjects. A decade-long project yielded her quintessential photobook , Juchitán of Women (1989) which looked at the legendary Zapotec city well-known for its matriarchal social structure.

She has won the W. Eugene Smith prize for photography in 1987 and a Guggenheim Fellowship in 1988. In 2008 she received the Hasselblad Foundation Photography Award. Her work has been exhibited internationally and is included in many major museum collections including those of the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the High Museum of Art, the Museum of Modern Art, the Los Angeles County Museum of Art and the J. Paul Getty Museum.

Presented in partnership with the High Museum of Art, sponsored by Mailchimp.

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.
