November 20, Daytona: Bill Armstrong exhibition opening, talk, book signing

from the Southeast Museum of Photography website:
Spirit: from the Infinity Series
Exhibition on view November 20, 2010- February 6, 2011
Bill Armstrong’s Infinity series transforms re-photographed and appropriated images to create ephemeral, abstracted and de-materialized color fields and strongly evocative iconic figures. Working with source material as diverse as African masks, Roman busts, statuary and other representations, Armstrong’s finished figurative and portrait images are powerfully evocative of an unseen presence.
Spirit presents selections from five of the series that make up Bill Armstrong’s Infinity project. Working with his unique process of re-photographing appropriated images and subjecting them to a series of manipulations; Armstrong exploits the integrating capacities of camera focus to merge image details, edges and colors to create seamless color fields and mysterious, iconic figures.

Odyssey: The Photographs of Linda Connor reflects an artist’s pursuit of diverse and compelling subjects from around the world. Although she frequently focuses on devotional sites and monuments, Connor is also drawn to revealing the spirit embedded in everyday life. She is fascinated with photography’s relationship to time: her pictures present a compelling combination of timelessness and a palpable sense of the passage of time. Another core element in her work concerns the dynamic relationship between the natural world and the sacred; its sites, iconography, and philosophy. Odyssey includes some of Connor’s best-known images from the…MORE

and closing on DECEMBER 16th:
A poignant and beautiful portrait of a man with Alzheimer’s as seen through the loving lens and words of his wife and care-partner, I Still Do: Loving and Living with Alzheimer’s puts a human face in front of the statistics, exploring the disease through Fox’s intimate photographs and poetic writing. While the details of I Still Do are personal and unique, this deeply candid story of illness, aging, partnership, and…MORE

November 13, Richmond, Virginia: Sally Mann exhibition & opening events

Richmond, Virginia

Sally Mann: The Flesh and the Spirit

Exhibition on view:
Saturday, November 13, 2010 –Sunday, January 23, 2011

Related Event:

Sally Mann: Conversations
Saturday, November 13, 2010

10 am–1 pm

Virginia Museum of Fine Arts
Altria Group and Center Gallery
200 North Boulevard
Richmond, Virginia
(804) 340-1400

Sally Mann’s most recent work represents an intriguing new direction. She is tackling expansive themes of mortality and vulnerability, while for the first time using herself and her husband as subjects. In addition, she has taken her bold experiments with the medium to new heights, pushing photography to its limits by making painterly and nearly abstract images—many as unique pieces on glass plates. Altogether the exhibition and accompanying catalog will present an unexpected picture of Mann’s work, encouraging a fresh perspective on one of today’s preeminent photographers and, it is hoped, an opportunity to extend her visibility well beyond the realm of photography. The exhibition is organized by the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts and curated by John B. Ravenal, Sydney and Frances Lewis Family Curator of Modern and Contemporary Art. (Excerpted from VFMA website.)

Sally Mann: The Flesh and The Spirit, co-published by Aperture and VFMA, is a must for any serious library of photographic literature, students, scholars, collectors, and others interested in her work. John Ravenal has written a comprehensive introduction as well as individual entries on each series, and essays by David Levi Strauss (“Eros, Psyche, and the Mendacity of Photography”) and Anne Wilkes Tucker (“Living Memory”) add different, but equally illuminating perspectives to this work.

Sally Mann: Conversations: Join leading experts in the field of photography—Vince Aletti (The New Yorker); Melissa Harris (Aperture Magazine), Brian Wallis (International Center of Photography)—as well as Sally Mann herself, for an engaging discussion of the artist’s work and exhibition, Sally Mann: The Flesh and The Spirit.

Sally Mann (born in Lexington, Virginia, 1951) is one of America’s most renowned photographers. She has received numerous awards, including NEA, NEH, and Guggenheim Foundation grants, and her work is held by major institutions internationally. Mann’s many books include What Remains (2003), Deep South (2005), and the Aperture titles At Twelve (1988), Immediate Family (1992), Still Time (1994), and Proud Flesh (2009). She lives in Lexington, Virginia.

About the exhibition:

“Investigating the shifting boundaries between seeing and spying, the private act and the public image, Exposed challenges us to consider how the camera has transformed the very nature of looking. Bringing together historical and contemporary photographs, films, and video works by both unknown photographers and internationally renowned artists, this provocative exhibition examines some of the camera’s most unsettling uses, including pornography, surveillance, stalking celebrity, and witnessing violence. Exposed poses compelling and urgent questions about who is looking at whom, and why.”
