Andrew Phelps Lectures on HIGLEY at Arizona State University March 20th

Northlight Gallery at Arizona State University’s Herberger College of the Arts is presenting photographer Andrew Phelps on March 20th.

Phelps will speak about his photographic work “Higley” and recent book of the same name. Phelps grew up in Higley, a small farming community in central Arizona, and documented what he described as …” this moment, where one place, with a definitive history, is rapidly losing ground to an undifferentiated sense of progress.”

Additionally, Phelps recently self-published BAGHDAD SUITE, a self-published book-on-demand in a limited edition of 100 numbered and signed copies.

Maria Magdalena Campos Pons to Lecture in Atlanta: March 20th, 7 p.m.

From the ACP e-newsletter:

“We’re pleased to bring Maria Magdalena Campos-Pons to the Spelman College Museum of Art for ACP’s Lecture Series, this Thursday, March 20th, at 7 p.m. A Cuban-American who works in photography, sculpture and mixed-media, Campos-Pons’ work is currently featured in Spelman’s “Cinema Remixed and Reloaded: Black Women Artists and the Moving Image Since 1970 Part II”, which is currently on view.

One of the most significant artists from post-Revolutionary Cuba, Campos-Pons’ work explores the role of history and memory in shaping identity. Her work created since leaving Cuba for North America in 1990 includes large-format Polaroid photographs and new media installations. Campos-Pons reconstructs both representations of individual and shared memories to grasp her imagined displacement from Africa, her actual exile from Cuba, and her experience as a black Cuban woman living in North America. Her personal experiences are used to exceed biography in order to articulate about the account of culture and history at large.

Campos-Pons has been featured in numerous group and solo exhibitions in the United States, Canada, Japan, Norway, France, Italy, and Cuba. Recently, Campos-Pons exhibited a mid-career survey at the Indianapolis Museum of Art. Her work has been featured at the Venice Biennale, Johannesburg Biennale, and the Museum of Modern Art, New York; Art Institute of Chicago; Whitney Museum of American Art; and Museum of Fine Arts, Boston.

@ 3rd Ward
195 Morgan Avenue, Brooklyn, NY

Moderator: Amy Stein
Panelists: Rachael Dunville, Tema Stauffer, Cara Phillips, Mary Mattingly and Sarah Small

In his 2006 article entitled “Where the Girls Aren’t,” Jerry Saltz writes: “Of all the artists in [MOMA’s] P&S collection with work completed before 1970, fewer than 1 percent are women.”

Please join Humble Arts Foundation and 3rd Ward in welcoming Amy Stein to moderate our first panel discussion on Saturday, March 22 at 6 pm. The discussion will encompass what it means to be an emerging photographer in New York City right now and how gender may or may not influence the artist’s work in terms of process, subject matter, impact and career path. The panelists, Rachael Dunville, Tema Stauffer, Cara Phillips, Mary Mattingly and Sarah Small, will field questions, give advice and speak about their personal experiences as women photographers.

Moderator Amy Stein was awarded the Saatchi Gallery/Guardian Prize for her Domesticated series in 2006. In 2007, she was named one of the top fifteen emerging photographers in the world by American Photo magazine and she won the Critical Mass Book Award. A monograph of her series Domesticated will be published in fall 2008.

Reception will follow. Space is limited.
