Anne Noble: In Search of an Ecological Sublime

Friday, April 25, 2014 at 5:30 pm
Free and open to the public.

Co-sponsored by the CCP in collaboration with the School of Art and the Institute of the Environment: Antarctica and the Arctic are poignant markers of the impact of climate change in the 21st Century. While there is a growing awareness of the fragility of these environments, photography continues to project an image of heroic untouched wilderness that is often unwittingly informed by 19th and 20th century European literary narratives and visual conventions. Anne Noble is a photographer and curator whose work spans still and moving image, installation and international curatorial commissions. On Friday April 25th, Noble will discuss the development of her series of Antarctic photographic projects that critically engage with heroic age histories and narratives of land, place, and environment. Noble will also discuss her recent work that explores the relationship between people and bees, in which she collaborates with scientists to create projects that incorporate the perspectives of both art and science within an aesthetic framework.  In 2003 Noble was awarded the Order of Merit for services to photography in New Zealand.  In 2009 she was a recipient of the New Zealand Arts Foundation Laureate Award and was awarded the Massey University individual research medal.  Appointed Distinguished Professor of Fine Art at Massey University, Wellington in 2013, Noble is a PhD supervisor and mentors and supervises MFA students”

“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.”

Center for Creative Photography
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.”

Penelope Umbrico: Photography as Subject
A conversation with Kate Palmer Albers

Thursday, March 27, 2014 at 5:30 pm
Free and open to the public.

Penelope Umbrico and UA art history professor Kate Palmer Albers will discuss the artist’s photo-based installations, video, and digital media works that explore the ever-changing technologies of image making, and the ever-increasing production and consumption of images on the Internet. Utilizing photo-sharing and consumer websites as an expansive archive, Umbrico navigates between producer and consumer, local and global, and the individual and the collective. Her works question the idea of the “democratization” of photography and media, where pre-scripted images, made with tools programmed to function in predetermined ways, undermine a claim to authorship, subjectivity and individuality. For Umbrico, all images within this emergent environment are evidence of something other than what they depict.”

Artist Talk by Eugene Richards
Friday, March 14, 2014 at 4:00 pm
Free and open to the public.

“A conscientious objector to the Vietnam War, Eugene Richards joined VISTA (Volunteers in Service to America) in 1968 and found himself working in a community service organization in eastern Arkansas. Running afoul of the Ku Klux Klan earned him a serious beating and numerous threats, but he left Arkansas with a series of haunting photographs of rural poverty that launched his career. For seventeen years, he traveled the world as a photojournalist for the agency Magnum and now focuses on his own projects. Intensely personal and deeply felt, his work also reflects a lifelong commitment to social activism, whether he is photographing the ravages of cocaine addiction, his first wife’s struggle with breast cancer, or the emotional aftermath of 9/11.”

Artist Talk by Michael Kenna
Wednesday, March 5, 2014, 7:00 pm

Free and open to the public.  Seating is first come, first served.

Michael Kenna’s landscapes are unpopulated, simple, serene, and subtle.
Often using very long exposures at night or dawn to soften the hard edge of reality, his minimalist images demand quiet attention from the viewer. Described as elegant, pure, and ephemeral, his work speaks eloquently to the strength of simple beauty.

A public reception will immediately follow the lecture in the Great Hall.”

Lecture by David Taylor

David Taylor received a Guggenheim Fellowship in 2008 to support his project, Working the Line, in which he documented every border monument between the US and Mexico from El Paso/Juarez to San Diego/Tijuana. Taylor writes, “My travels along the border have been done both alone and in the company of agents. In total, the resulting pictures are intended to offer a view into locations and situations that we generally do not access and portray a highly complex physical, social and political topography during a period of dramatic change.” In 2012 Radius Books published his first book on the project, titled Working the Line.”

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.”
