August 26 – November 13: “Border 2010: Photographs by Alejandro Cartagena and David Rochkind” at UT El Paso

From the University of Texas at El Paso Website:


Detail of: David Rochkind, Night Patrol #1. Ciudad Juarez, Chihuahua, 2009.
16″ X 24″ Archival pigment print. Printed by Carbon 4.

Border 2010:  Photographs by Alejandro Cartagena and David Rochkind is comprised of select images from Alejandro Cartagena’s series People of Suburbia and from David Rochkind’s Heavy Hand, Sunken Spirit. All twenty photographs were created within the past few years and depict the people and places of Mexico, with a particular focus on its northern border. Cartagena reveals mundane aspects of everyday life in a suburbia that is strangely still and empty; Rochkind captures the anxiety and evolving changes wrought by drug trafficking and its policing.These worlds exist in tandem in northern Mexico today.

Alejandro Cartagena (b. 1977, Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic; resides Monterrey, MX) was one of 30 photographers to earn an emerging photographers award from Photo District News in 2010. He was the subject of a solo exhibition at Blue Sky Gallery in Portland, OR in 2010 and will earn a Master of Visual Arts from the Universidad Autonoma de Nuevo Leon in 2011.

David Rochkind (b. 1980, Detroit, Michigan; resides Mexico City, MX) earned a B.A. in sociology from the University of Michigan. His photographs have been featured in numerous publications including the New York Times, Time and Newsweek. He has received awards and recognition from a variety of organizations, including Photo District News, Magenta Publishing for the Arts and the Pulitzer Center on Crisis Reporting.

July 29: Chelsea Art Walk- 25 galleries in NYC’s Chelsea district participating

From one of my favorite blogs, DART by Peggy Roalf:

DART

Thursday Night in NYC: Chelsea Art Walk
By Peggy Roalf   Wednesday, July 28, 2010

Tomorrow night, 25 Chelsea galleries will celebrate the hottest summer on record with extended hours and special events as they host the first annual Chelsea Art Walk. In addition, local sponsors will offer food and drink specials throughout the evening. Wanting to find out more, I contacted art dealer Brian Clamp, who offered these details by email.
“The event was organized by Alyssa Menegat, who is the Gallery Manager at Jenkins Johnson Gallery, and Catherine Wyatt, who is the Gallery Manager at ClampArt,” he said. “Their idea was to try to draw people to Chelsea during the hot summer days when foot traffic typically slows down. Many galleries have excellent shows on view in July, and it’s a shame that they might be missed by people who assume the art market is in low gear for the summer.”

I asked Brian how the idea of his gallery hosting a crepe-making evening with Les Gamins came about. “The idea,” he replied, “was also Catherine’s. Our current exhibition features photographs of New Orleans by Dave Anderson, so she thought the French tie-in made sense. Also,” he concluded, “the point was to involve other local businesses beyond the art world!”

July 15th: David Taylor, “Working The Line” Panel Discussion and Booksigning

From a Radius Books E-blast:


RADIUS BOOKS & THE NEW MEXICO HISTORY MUSEUM
invite you to a panel discussion and booksigning for the release of

DAVID TAYLOR, “WORKING THE LINE”
Thursday, July 15, 5:30–7:30 pm

Join photographer and Guggenheim Fellow David Taylor along with a panel that includes curator Mary Anne Redding, Border Patrol agent Paul Wells, Tohono O’odham Nation member David J. Garcia, essayist Hannah Frieser, and publishers David Chickey and Darius Himes for a discussion of current issues along the U.S.-Mexico border as reflected in Taylor’s new book, Working the Line (Radius Books, Spring 2010). This free event will be held in the New Mexico History Museum Auditorium at 113 Lincoln Avenue in downtown Santa Fe. A selection of Taylor’s border images will be on view in the Triangle Gallery next to the auditorium.

WORKING THE LINE
Essays by Hannah Frieser and Luis Alberto Urrea.
In 2008, David Taylor received a Guggenheim Fellowship for his ongoing examination of the U.S.–Mexico border. His investigation is organized around the documentation of a series of approximately 260 obelisks that mark the international boundary as it extends from El Paso/Juarez to San Diego/ Tijuana. These monuments—striking objects situated in impossibly gorgeous and difficult terrain—were installed between the years 1892 and 1895. In the process of his work, Taylor earned remarkable access to U.S. Border Patrol facilities, agents and routine operations. Patrol agents often refer to their job in the field as “line work” which is an apt description of Taylor’s own time as he documented the obelisks. Being on the “line” has given Taylor a unique view into overlapping issues of border security, human and drug smuggling, the continuing construction of the border fence and its impact on the land.

Come and celebrate the release of this highly anticipated book!
