Antioch College Stephen Marc_7
Reception and Artist Talk by Stephen Marc
Friday, July 11, 2014 at 7:30 pm

Stephen Marc will discuss his use of archival documents and images as well as extensive research in his creative process. Marc constructs compelling layered narratives made up of his panoramic photographs of historical landscapes interwoven with found remnants of the past—racially charged caricatures and cartoons, trade cards, illustrations and slave documents. The results are challenging, visually charged images of the places and remnants of the African Diaspora. In his artist statement, Marc writes, “My work is an interpretive relocation of, and commentary on, the limited representations and accounts of the black experience, into the early years of the 20th century, that were usually defined from outside the community. My intent is to allow the haunting of the past to symbolically resurface providing a layered contextualization of what was…”

Marc is one of two highly established artists invited to anchor the current exhibition, Unpacking the Archives: Frameworks for Change—Activate Now!, co-curated by Dennie Eagleson, former creative director of the Herndon Gallery, and Raewyn Martyn, visiting professor of visual arts at Antioch College.”

Artist Talk by Stephen Marc: Passage On the Underground Rail Road
Wednesday, September 5, 2012 at 7:00 pm
Free and open to the public. Seating is first-come, first-served.

“Over the course of a decade and across 32 states, photographer and digital artist Stephen Marc followed the Underground Railroad, the network of people and places that served as a gateway to freedom during slavery in the American South.

Tracing its history, its interconnected web of stories, of faces, lives, homes, caves, and passageways, Marc followed and photographed the routes of the freedom seekers, creating from these powerful images a thread of narratives. Stephen Marc: Passage On the Underground Railroad, an exhibition of Marc’s compelling and visually expansive digital documentary montages, will be on view in Norton Photography Gallery through September 23, 2012.”
