“Frame by Frame” screening at Atlanta Film Festival, Monday, March 23, 9pm

March 18th, 2015


"In 1996, the Taliban banned photography in Afghanistan. When the US invaded after 9/11, the regime toppled, the media blackout disappeared, and a promising industry began to emerge. Using cinema verité and secret, never-before-seen archival footage shot under Taliban rule, this documentary follows four Afghan photojournalists fighting to reclaim their nation's identity by capturing the truth."
On Monday night, "Frame by Frame", a documentary about Afghan photojournalists will be screening at the Plaza as part of the Atlanta Film Festival. The film's directors, Alexandria Bombach & Mo Scarpelli will be in attendance, and Michael David Murphy from ACP will facilitate a conversation.

Discounted tickets for you (readers of ACP Now!) are available, use code: 25fb-f7

Look forward to seeing you there!

"The weekend of March 21-22nd is Instagram's Worldwide Instameet 11. To celebrate, @weloveatl is collaborating with two of Atlanta's silliest Instagrammers (@timlampe and @ohheyitsday) to put on an Instameet that promises to be funky. Introducing the world's first #Wigstameet!

What's a wigstameet? It's an instameet- but with fun headgear. It's not a requirement, but it is a fun outlet for your creativity.

The meet will be held on Saturday March 21st at 1pm along the north side Beltline trail at Tanyard Creek Park. Details to follow closer to the event.

If you've never been to an community event, don't be intimidated. This is a great time to get out of your normal way of shooting and meet some rad people along the way- while wearing some awesome head gear!"

Garry Winogrand-inspired Dance Performance from Full Radius, March 13th & 14th

March 5th, 2015
This sounds like fun! Tickets available here.

Full Radius Dance returns to 7 Stages Theatre with SNAPSHOT, a program of new works. With guest artist Alice Sheppard, the company presents a diverse program featuring pieces inspired by Emily Dickinson, the tale of the Beast of Gevaudan, and the work of photographer Garry Winogrand. These astute choreographic snapshots of life reveal deep truths about the human condition.

THE GORGEOUS NOTHINGS is the title of a published collection of Emily Dickinson's fragments of poetry, written on scraps of paper. Artistic Director Douglas Scott, in collaboration with the dancers, used her words to create a work about the inconsequential, but beautiful, moments of everyday life.

The Beast of Gevaudan is a mythical creature held responsible for a rash of deaths in 1760s France. This account of a man-eating wolf energized Douglas to conceive BETE NOIRE (literally translated as "Black Beast"). This is Full Radius Dance's version of a fairytale, one in which good and evil become indistinguishable.

"Douglas Scott ... was walking through the National Gallery of Art in Washington, D.C., on his way to see a dance exhibit when he noticed something: black-and-white photos taken in Las Vegas and Coney Island, at rodeos and nightclubs. He stopped and looked. And looked again.

The photos were the work of 20th-century American photographer Garry Winogrand. They immediately struck a chord with Scott and soon became the creative impetus for his next dance work. " — Gillian Renault, ArtsATL

SNAPSHOT, choreographed in collaboration with the dancers, is the end result of this initial inspiration.

Lucinda Bunnen – Artist’s Talk at Swan Coach House, Thursday, 7pm

February 11th, 2015
Lucinda Bunnen's "A Collection of Collections" show at Swan Coach House Gallery will be having an artist's talk on Thursday, Feb. 12th at 7pm. Lucinda will be talking with Brett Abbott, Donald and Marilyn Keough Family Curator of Photography at the High Museum of Art.

Virginie Kippelen reviewed the show yesterday on ARTSatl.com.

"Although her collection of cameras — a large photograph of dozens of them, old and new, acquired over 45 years — takes center stage here, many of the collections, like the Hawaiian souvenirs, are mundane objects. There are beads in all shapes and colors; pine cones, large and small; heart-shaped stones; shells from everywhere.

A vast display of artifacts complements the photos on the gallery walls. A couple of ceramic cows stand by the photograph of her miniature-cow collection (Bunnen grew up on a farm)."
