March 5th – Jonathan Torgovnik/Aperture Exhibition Opening Reception

Aperture Presents Jonathan Torgovnik: Intended Consequences: Rwandan Children Born of Rape

Opening reception with the Artist: Thursday, March 5th, 6:00-8:00pm

There will also be a Panel Discussion Wednesday, April 29th, 6:30 pm

The Exhibition will be on view from February 20th-May 7th

From the website: “During the 1994 genocide, hundreds of thousands of Rwandan women were subjected to massive sexual violence by members of the infamous Hutu militia groups, known as the Interhamwe. Among the most isolated survivors are women who have borne children as a result of those rapes. Due to the stigma of rape and “having a child of the militia,” the women’s communities and few surviving relatives have largely shunned them. Intended Consequences: Rwandan Children Born of Rape brings together Jonathan Torgovnik’s remarkable portraits of these women and children, and their harrowing first-hand testimonies.

This project is a collaboration with the Open Society Institute, Amnesty International, Foundation Rwanda, and MediaStorm. A portion of the proceeds from the book will be contributed to Foundation Rawanda which provides funding for secondary school education for these children and links their mothers to existing psychological and medical services.

The Paradigm Lecture Series Presents:

Photographer: Linda Troeller “Long-term Projects”

A quote from Linda about her work:

“My images explore the fragility and elegance of sustaining atmosphere — a
concept Malcolm Gladwell predicts will have ever more importance.” He
explains in his new book, Outliers, …cultural legacies matter and they are
powerful and persuasive and can persist long afterward…”

Linda Troeller’s art projects focus on personal and social issues on
community, health and sexuality. Exhibited all over the world, she has won the Lucie, IPA Self-Portrait Award, Pictures of the Year Pictorial 1st Place,  NJ State Council on the Arts Fellowship, and won Women of Achievement for her photography.

March 5th: Panel Discussion in Santa Fe: Creating The Exhibition,Through The Lens: A Contemporary View of Santa Fe

Thursday, March 5, 2009, 3-5 p.m.

Creating Through the Lens: A Contemporary View of Santa Fe

Panel Discussion at Santa Fe Community College 3 – 5 PM, Art Building, Room 711

Panelists: Frances Levine Director, Palace of the Governors/New Mexico History Museum; Krista Elrick & Mary Anne Redding, co-curators of Through the Lens: Creating Santa Fe; Clark Baughan, Director, Visual Arts Gallery at Santa Fe Community College and Melanie McWhorter, Alan Pearlman, and Brian K. Edwards photographers.

About the exhibition:

Through the Lens: Creating Santa Fe
On view at the Palace of the Governors in Santa Fe through Oct 25, 2009

“Since the 1850s many of the most recognized names in photography have focused their lenses in and on Santa Fe. Through their creative efforts they have documented a particular place and its visual history. They helped create that “place” and the mystique of Santa Fe. Photography has long been significant in the construction of notions of space and place, landscape and identity, and especially in Santa Fe, however malleable visual meaning may be, has helped define the geographical imagination.

Curated by photographer and educator Krista Elrick and Palace of the Governor Curator of Photography, Mary Anne Redding, Through the Lens: Creating Santa Fe, examines the history of Santa Fe through the visual record created by internationally respected photographers.”
