Panel Discussion: Heinecken and Feminism

Tuesday, December 9, 2014 at 7:30 pm
Tickets: Free, available on first-come first-served basis 1 hour before event.

“Heralded as a feminist and denounced as misogynist, Robert Heinecken is a complex figure whose art raises urgent questions about the representation of women in a media saturated world. His use of found pornographic materials and images of female bodies taken from magazines, newspapers, and other found sources was, and still is, hotly debated among artists, scholars, and curators. This panel, held in conjunction with the exhibition Robert Heinecken: Object Matter, will explore the various ways in which Heinecken’s work has been read, and continues to be relevant, in the dialogue about representations of women and gender in art.

Eva Respini, curator, Department of Photography, MoMA, moderates the panel discussion with A. L. Steiner, artist and visiting assistant professor and MFA program director at USC; Luke Batten, director, Robert Heinecken Trust; Richard Meyer, Robert and Ruth Halperin Professor in Art History, Stanford University; and Rebecca Morse, associate curator, Wallis Annenberg Photography Department, Los Angeles County Museum of Art.”

This event is being presented in conjunction with the exhibition Robert Heinecken: Object Matter, on view until January 18, 2015.

November 15th, New Orleans: Lecture by MVS “YOUR EXHIBITION, THE VENUE and ITS AUDIENCE”

New Orleans Photo Alliance
Lecture by Mary Virginia Swanson:
YOUR EXHIBITION, THE VENUE and ITS AUDIENCE: Considerations for Planning a Successful Exhibition

Saturday, November 15, 2014, 2:00-4:00 pm

“Exhibiting your work is an exciting experience for all artists. But until you have the opportunity to present your work to the public, how can you understand the strategic and practical steps towards mounting a successful exhibition?

Whether your exhibition is being hosted at a public space or private venue, all artists should consider the audience that venue engages and work strategically to ensure a strong collaboration with its community.

In this illustrated seminar, Mary Virginia Swanson helps artists understand the issues of presentation, publicity, audience engagement through educational offerings, the value of producing an accompanying online/print publication and much more.

Artists attending this presentation will gain a broad awareness of the exhibition experience.”

Registration: $5 General Admission / Free for NOPA members, RSVP HERE.

Picture Gallery
Opening Reception: John Chervinsky “Studio Physics + An Experiment in Perspective”
Friday, November 7, 2014, 5:00-8:00 pm

John Chervinsky is a photographer and Harvard engineer in applied physics. His images create a world where the two subjects playfully intermingle. Chervinsky says, “I am fascinated by the concept of time. I can measure it, account for it in an experiment in the lab, and live my life in it, but I still don’t know what it is, exactly.” His photographs mix elements of optics and perspective as a means to explore human knowledge and perception.”

The exhibition will be on view November 7 – December 27, 2014.

Oakland University Art Gallery
Shadows of the Invisible
Opening Reception: Saturday, October 11, 6:00-9:00 pm
Artist Talk by Susan kae Grant at 5:00 pm

“The ability of photography to reveal what is invisible to the naked eye has a rich history dating back to the advent of the medium. Often typifying the conflation of science and art characterizing early photography, the pursuit of the invisible by means of light-sensitive emulsions remains a compelling source of fascination for contemporary image-makers and their audience. Within the realm of art, this preoccupation with the unseen manifests itself in remarkable fashions ranging from the poetics of evocation to the dread of the unknown.

Bringing together the intriguing work of seven international photo-based artists, Shadows of the Invisible casts light upon a spectrum of energy fields, emanations, perceptual imaginings, and subconscious imaging rendered tangible by photographic technologies.

The exhibition will be on view October 11 – November 23, 2014.  Featuring: Michael Flomen, David Maisel, Marie-Jeanne Musiol, Susan kae Grant, Shimpei Takeda, Amy Theiss Giese and Chrysanne Stathacos.”

Harry Ransom Center
Lecture by Alejandro Cartagena
Tuesday, October 7, 2014 at 7:00 pm

“For nearly ten years, Cartagena has explored the relationship between Mexico’s urban centers and the suburbs built around them, examining the ways in which explosive growth has altered the landscape and affected the lives of residents. In this artist’s talk, Cartagena discusses the development of projects including Suburbia Méxicana, Carpoolers, and his latest work, Systematic Landscapes. Through these projects, Cartagena has found a way to shed light on issues surrounding the recent homeownership boom in Mexico by presenting many of the actors involved, from the buyers to the public bureaucrats promoting government loans. Cartagena explains how Mexico’s social and political context has proven to be both a benefit and a threat to many of these new buyers, opening up opportunities and challenges.

The program is free and open to the public, but donations are welcome. Seating is first-come, first-served, and doors open at 6:30 p.m. Attendees may enter to win a copy of ’s Suburia Mexicana and a set of Ransom Center postcards. ”
