Myra Greene, at Spelman & exhibition in London

April 2nd, 2018

Myra Greene, who is the new Director of the Photography Program in the Department of Art and Visual Culture at Spelman College, has an exhibition of her ambrotypes in London at Corvi Mora.

"This first solo exhibition of the American artist outside the United States features works from 2002 to the present day, offering an overview of the artist’s output to date. Most of these works are either autobiographical or based on self-portraiture. The works from the earliest series in the exhibition, produced between 2002 and 2004, take the form of inkjet prints on watercolour paper. The prints are made from scans of Polaroid photographs of details of the artist’s body, altered with the use of household chemicals. Due to the unstable nature of the finished Polaroid, the inkjet prints capture a moment in the short life of the photograph, itself a frozen instant. The transient and fragile quality of the support resonates with the subject matter of the image: the artist framing her own body. "

Mark Steinmetz: Photo Class & Public Lecture

February 22nd, 2018

There are two upcoming events with Mark Steinmetz at the High Museum of Art; a public lecture on March 18, and a photoclass (for adults) on March 24-25: "Deepening Your Practice: Adult Photography Class with Mark Steinmetz."

"Join Mark Steinmetz, a leading Southern artist whose photographs capture the distinctive character of the region, as he shares insights on the exhibition Mark Steinmetz: Terminus, at the High (March 3–June 3) photographs in, around, and above Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport. His black-and-white photographs lend a poignant perspective on how this gateway to the wider world is a place of delightful paradoxes. Mark Steinmetz: Terminus is the latest chapter in the ongoing Picturing the South project, for which the High Museum commissions artists to create original bodies of work that offer new perspectives on the South’s social and geographical landscapes."
