"RECLAMATION is a group exhibition of photographic works from Leah Clemons and Bianca Pineiro.
In RECLAMATION, an emerging photographer and photo-base mixed media artist come together to translate what it’s like to tangibly reclaim innocence through visual content. In Leah Clemons’s Body Snatcher series, she explores the idea of what it is like to lose ownership of one’s body and taking it back through a series of different purifications. She presents diptychs of each cleanse that gives the audience a look into two open ended realities. In Bianca Pineiro’s installation entitled, Juvenile Nostalgia, she explores childhood memories joined with the reality of adulthood. By using a combination of photographic images and found objects, the pieces show a shaky bridge between being a child or an adult. Both artist are Advance Photography students at Kennesaw State University and reside in the greater Atlanta, Georgia.

"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.

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.
