“In her first Center of Creative Photography artist talk since joining the Photography faculty at the School of Art (University of Arizona) in 2006, multi-media artist and Associate Professor Sama Alshaibi will discuss the major themes of her work. Her evolution as an artist concerned with the body’s complicated relationship to land through a compromised nationalistic lens has moved towards universal spaces of conflict. Connecting borders, bodies and site through allegorical devices and a variety of media (through video, installation, sculpture, photography and social media platforms), Alshaibi’s work suggests the repeated and recycled history of domination, power and control. Alshaibi’s talk will also reflect upon her significant career successes over the past year: her participation at the 55th Venice Biennial and FotoFest 2014 Biennial, the upcoming new work in the inaugural Honolulu Biennial, her soon to be published monograph with Aperture Foundation as well as being awarded University of Arizona’s 1885 Distinguished Scholar title and grant, her third major teaching award in her years at University of Arizona.”

Artist Talk by Rebecca Najdowski: Desert Pictures

Tuesday, April 15, 2014 at 5:30 pm
Free and open to the public.

“In this presentation visual artist and writer Rebecca Najdowski will discuss how both the physical and conceptual terrains of the desert come to the surface in her artwork. This manifests in color analogue photograms, video, installation, and augmented reality interventions. In her practice she explores the potential of expanding photographic logic into other mediums through the creation of light installations and the engagement with materiality and limits of representation of photography and video. Najdowski uses the desert as a site to address notions of landscape, the sublime, phenomenology, perception, and the shifting territories of the intangible and the concrete. Currently, she is a Visiting Professor of Photography at the University of Arizona and the Artist Fellow at the Center for Creative Photography, Tucson.”

Center for Creative Photography
Artist Talk by Frank Gohlke, The Wild Apples of Kazakhstan
Thursday, February 20, 2014 at 5:30 pm
Free and open to the public.

“University of Arizona photo professor Frank Gohlke will give a talk about his current project, a study of wild apple forests in Kazakhstan, funded by a Fulbright Scholar Research Grant. Gohlke’s apple passion dates back 40 years to a commencement address delivered by the late John Szarkowski to the graduating class of the Minneapolis College of Art and Design. Gohlke’s fascination grew during a three-year stay in Middlebury, Vermont, where he first experienced apple cider fresh from a press. “Apples” by Frank Browning (North Point Press, 1998), introduced Gohlke to the wild apple forests of Kazakhstan, from which domesticated apples grown across the world are derived.

Gohlke’s lecture will include photographs of earlier projects that presage aspects of the Kazakhstan work, and a group of images made since December 2013 in the first stage of the current project.”
