In the 1940s, French philosopher Simone de Beauvoir wrote in The Second Sex that “one is not born, but rather becomes, a woman. No biological, psychological, or economic fate determines the figure that the human female presents in society: it is civilization as a whole that produces this creature, intermediate between male and eunuch, which is described as feminine.” “Monroe”, a surname of Scottish origin, has been translated into completely different and highly gendered Chinese characters in different contexts: Meng Lu (梦露) in the case of Hollywood star Marilyn Monroe, and Men Luo (门罗) in the case of James Monroe, the fifth president of the United States. This phenomenon indirectly responds to the myth of femininity revealed in de Beauvoir’s book.

“Monroe/Monroe” focuses on recent creative practices in photography and related media by artists around the world on topics concerning women and gender. The exhibition aims to investigate, in certain social and historical contexts, possibilities for artists to create their own expressions between the speakable and the unspeakable. The project is grounded in the connection between contemporary photography and feminist culture, and will be presented as a combination of exhibition, forum, research and public events.

The exhibition of the same title, “Monroe/Monroe”, will explore different issues caused by gender differentiation in the upbringing, family life and social life of women through the works of 6 photographers. The works showcased in the exhibition start from the postmodern perspective that sees the body as an object of gender and go on to challenge, humorously or methodically, stereotypical identities of women within the scope of complicated social and cultural perceptions.

During the exhibition, we will invite a number of curators, scholars and artists active in the field to participate in academic forums, talks and public events, which are not only designed to help us explore the important significance of photography in raising and responding to related issues, but also to examine the history and development of women’s photography around the world in a broader context.

Group show "At Home: In the American West" presented by The California Sunday Magazine and Aperture Foundation

201834_02.jpg

Exhibition on view
December 6, 2018 – January 4, 2019

Opening reception
Thursday, December 6 6:00-8:30 pm

Where do you feel most at home? In a year when thousands of migrant children have been sent to live in tent cities, rents for a San Francisco apartment average $3,750, and wildfires have destroyed entire communities, the question of how people define “home” has never felt more urgent. Some feel nostalgic about where they came from, some never left the towns they grew up in, and others couldn’t wait to leave. At Home features a variety of emerging and established photographers — including Ahndraya Parlato and Gregory Halpern, Texas Isaiah, Pixy Liao, Ricardo Nagaoka,Irina Rozovsky, Mark Steinmetz, and others — who traveled through ten states in the American West and spoke to people about what, and where, home is. The series includes a formerly homeless woman who finally feels settled in her tiny house in Seattle, a single mother who found her sanctuary living off the grid in the New Mexico desert, a couple who built their dream mansion in the mountains, a DACA recipient who has proudly purchased his first home in Utah, and a Los Angeles native who feels at peace by the ocean.

This exhibition coincides with the publication of The California Sunday Magazine’s December special issue in which all stories will be told through photography, focusing on a single theme: Home.

At Home is sponsored by Google Pixel, which launches the Google Pixel 3, with its most advanced camera, in the U.S. today. Google Pixel is also the exclusive photography sponsor of The California Sunday Magazine’s December issue, which will be available online at www.californiasunday.com on November 29 and in print on December 2.

ABOUT HOW WE SEE:
With historical records establishing 19th-century British photographer Anna Atkins’s Photographs of British Algae: Cyanotype Impressions (1843-1853) as the first photobook, it is not surprising that women have consistently contributed to the rich history of photobook making. 10×10 Photobooks has organized How We See - a hands-on reading room, “book on books” publication and series of public events - to explore the distinctive content, design and intellectual attributes in photobooks produced by women.

My book "Experimental Relationship Vol.1 2007-2017" is picked by Miwa Susuda.

SVA, MFA Photography, Video, and Related Media celebrates award-winning journalist, art critic, and curator, Barbara Pollack and her new publication Brand New Art From China with a book signing and panel discussion featuring artist Pixy Liao, with department alumni Baoyang Chen '14, Jesse Chun '14, Tiger Chi '14 and current thesis student Hanwen Zhang '19.

"A unique and visionary generation of young Chinese artists are coming to prominence in the art world – just as China cements its place as the second largest art market on the planet. Building on the new frontiers opened up by the Chinese artists of the late 1980s and 1990s, artists such as Ai Wei Wei who came to the West and became household names, this new generation are provocative, exciting and bold. But what does it mean to be a Chinese artist today? And how can we better understand their work?

Here, renowned critic Barbara Pollack presents the first book to tell the story of how these Chinese millennials, fast becoming global art superstars, negotiate their cultural heritage, and what this means for China's impact on the future of global culture. Many young Chinese artists have declared they are “not Chinese, but global” – this book investigates just what that means for China, the art market, and the world.

Brand new Art from China is the first collection to showcase the dynamic new art coming from Chinese artists, and features full-colour photos and video stills throughout – with many works being published in book-form for the first time. Featuring an in-depth interview with Zhang Xiaogang, probably the most well-known artist in China itself, whose sombre portraits of Chinese families during the Cultural Revolution sell for as much as $12 million at auction, alongside unparalleled access to the tastemakers of today's art scene, Brand New Art from China is the essential guide to Chinese contemporary art today - its vision, values and aesthetics."

Pixy Liao: Experimental Relationship Vol. 1 - Book Launch and mini PIMO concert

September 7, 2018 6-8 PM

Join us for the NY book release of Experimental Relationship Vol. 1 by artist Pixy Liao, published by Jiazazhi. The event includes a mini-concert by Pixy’s band PIMO, together with her muse Moro.

Experimental Relation ship Vol. 1 is a collection of photos from Pixy’s long-term project “Experimental Relationship”. The photo series explores the alternative dynamics of the artist’s longterm relationship with her partner Moro, who is 5 years younger. In this project, she investigates a set of alternative possibilities for power and authority within a relationship that differ from those that Pixy was exposed to as a woman brought up in Shanghai, China.

Music is also an important part of Pixy and Moro’s life, with Moro the lead of their band PIMO. On occasion of the book launch the two will perform a short set of songs from their three albums.

August 27 – October 18, 2018
Kathleen O. Ellis Gallery
Gallery Talk: Thursday, September 20, 6pm
Reception: Thursday, September 20, 5-7pm

Light Work is pleased to announce Be Strong and Do Not Betray Your Soul: Selections from the Light Work Collection. The exhibition is guest-curated by For Freedoms, a platform for civic engagement, discourse, and direct action for artists in the United States, co-founded in 2016 by former Light Work artists-in-residence Eric Gottesman and Hank Willis Thomas. Since then, For Freedoms has produced exhibitions, town hall meetings, and public art to spur greater participation in civic life. On their motivations for starting For Freedoms, Gottesman states, “Our hope was to spark dialogue about our collective civic responsibility to push for freedom and justice today, as those before us pushed for freedom and justice in their time through peaceful protest and political participation.”

Borrowing its title from the Charles Biasiny-Rivera piece of the same name, Be Strong and Do Not Betray Your Soul features more than forty photographs from the Light Work Collection that explore topics of politics, social justice, identity, and visibility. These subjects have remained significant for Light Work and many of the artists we have supported over our forty-five year history. The list of artists includes: Laura Aguilar, George Awde, Karl Baden, Lois Barden and Harry Littell, Claire Beckett, Charles Biasing-Rivera, Samantha Box, Deborah Bright, Chan Chao, Renee Cox, Rose Marie Cromwell, Jen Davis, Jess Dugan, John Edmonds, Amy Elkins, Nereyda Garcia Ferraz, Jennifer Garza-Cuen, Antony Gleaton, Jim Goldberg, David Graham, Mahtab Hussain, Osamu James Nakagawa, Tommy Kha, Pipo Nguyen-Duy, Deana Lawson, Mary Mattingly, Jackie Nickerson, Shelley Niro, Suzanne Opton, Kristine Potter, Ernesto Pujol, Irina Rozovsky, Alessandra Sanguinetti, Kanako Sasaki, Pacifico Silano, Clarissa Sligh, Beuford Smith, Amy Stein, Mila Teshaieva, Brian Ulrich, Ted Wathen, Carrie Mae Weems, Carla Williams, Hank Willis Thomas, Pixy Yijun Liao.

In addition to the selections of work on view at Light Work, we have collaborated with For Freedoms to display a series of billboards throughout the city of Syracuse created by internationally-renowned artists Zoe Buckman, Eric Gottesman, Carrie Mae Weems, Spider Martin, and Hank Willis Thomas. These billboards use photography and text to address social issues and our political climate. This exhibition and related programming coincides with The 50 State Initiative, an ambitious new phase of For Freedoms Fall 2018 programming, during the lead-up to the midterm elections. Building off of the existing artistic infrastructure in the United States, For Freedoms has developed a network of artists and institutional partners, including Light Work, who will produce nationwide public art installations, exhibitions, and local community dialogues in order to inject nuanced, artistic thinking into public discourse. Centered around the vital work of artists, these exhibitions, and related projects will model how arts institutions can become civic forums for action.

Socially Engaged Ernest G. Welch Galleries @ GSU

The exhibition considers the genre of performance and photography/video: its origin in the personal body; its influence within the arts and our culture, and its evolution since it formally arrived in the 1960’s as protest and commentary.

"Socially Engaged" is curated by Brenda Massie.

Participating artists include: Marilyn Minter, an artist who uses hypersexualized images of women to examine their roles in our culture as both objects and subjects, and to assert the power that emanates from these roles.

LaToya Ruby Frazier who creates documentary photographs and videos of herself and her family in adverse political and economic conditions as a personal expression of the fight for social justice, racial equality and cultural change.

Adrian Piper uses racial ambiguity and femininity to create text and images that examine ostracism and otherness in our culture.

Deborah Bright photographer, scholar and professor of photography and history of visual art and visual culture at RISD and Pratt attests that performance is “not an Ivory Tower” and that if it’s good “there is graphic form with telling content.” Her works explore LGBT issues and their lively, disturbing insertion into conservative formats.

Pixy Yijun Liao role plays male attitude and performance in intimate images of gender reversal within her domestic relationship.

Cheryl Pope, who studied under Nick Cave, creates powerful images of loss of power, and life, in an inequitable society.

Kerry Skarbakka documents his performances of male aggression in fight scenes, survivalist fantasies, and cultural realities.

Christina Price-Washington and Tyler Gill.

Panel Discussion Oct 19 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm Panel discussion will include select artists from exhibition and will be moderated by Gregory Harris, Assistant Curator of Photography, The High Museum of Art.

On view July 21 - August 11, 2017 Wednesday-Sunday 12pm-7pm

Westbeth Gallery 55 Bethune Street New York, 10014

Artists: Farah Al Qasimi, Aneta Bartos, Nicolas Bloise, Elliott Jerome Brown Jr., Nona Faustine, Rindon Johnson, Tommy Kha, Pixy Liao, Matthew Morrocco, Bryson Rand, Paul Mpagi Sepuya. Curated by Eric Lawton & Daphne Takahashi.

Housed at Westbeth Gallery, Discursive Selves explores the contested meaning of the Self Portrait. This collection of contemporary photography and film by eleven artists reveals nuanced definitions of selfhood that acknowledge the socializing influence of one’s surrounding environment. As a means of intersubjective expression, these artists use the camera to cement their visibility on their own terms.

Self-portraiture plays an essential role in the development and establishment of one’s identity— it informs and is informed, creates and is created, is both concrete and ephemeral. For some, it manifests as an artifact, a material body, or a form of testimony; for others, it is a projection, a speculation, or a performance. Private life and public exposure blur as the portrayal of a Self differs from fictitious characters and imagined scenarios to biological self-studies or familial ties.

Discursive Selves dissects the myriad practices of formulating oneself, as both an intimate ritual and a method of responding to one's outer world. These artists approach the medium of photography as a dialogic exchange between the self and the other. In what has now emerged as a rapidly expanding Global Information Society, Discursive Selves illustrates a significant pause and moment of contemplation in contemporary life.

This exhibition was made possible through the support of Art + Commerce

EXPECTATION 在这个只能结结巴巴跟随的世界, 我们期盼节日。 ——“节日不是抵达。”一位农夫说,“节日是另一次旅行,在我们不停地想象,却不可能实现的事物中旅行。” ——“节日不是答案。”另一位农夫说,“不妨说节日是以喉咙形式呈现的问题。” ——“节日是我们身体内被放逐的另一具身体。” ——“农夫,他们的脚步是涂抹在小路伤口上的药膏。”

在这个布满荆棘的山洞里, 我们期盼庆典。 好凭借远古时期最戏谑玩乐的仪式, 以万事万物取笑,包罗万象, 对神灵冷嘲热讽。 逆向、反向、亵渎、嘲弄、贬低、戏仿、讽刺, 彻底颠倒这个世界, 狂欢中,化为一月。

展览时间:2016年12月31日 - 2017年1月30日 Exhibition Dates: December 31. 2016 - January 30. 2017 开放时间:周一 - 周五, 11:00 - 17:00 Opening hours: Mon - Fri, 11am - 5pm

EXPECTATION In the world that can only be followed in a stuttered way, We look forward to festivals.

——"Afestival is not an arrival", one of the farmers said. "A festival isanother travel into the things we cannot stop imagining and that never happen".

——"Afestival is not an answer", says another farmer, and adds, "it isactually a question that takes the shape of a throat".

——"Afestival is our other body exiled inside our body".

——"Farmers, their steps are ointments spread on the wounds of the road".

In this thorny cave, We look forward to celebrations. With the most joking and fun ceremonies in ancient times, We make fun of all kinds of things, The cynicism for divinities. Reverse, inverse, profane, ridicule, belittle, parody, satirize, Overturn the world completely, In carnival and in one month.

Exhibition on view October 21, 2016-January 25, 2017
open weekly Mon-Fri, 10am-2pm


Circuitous Succession Epilogue lll marks the third installment of the epic survey exhibitions curated by Jason Miller within the circa 1909 Scottish Rite Building. This series includes household-name artists from the southern region, as well as select artists of international renown. With each installment Miller works to unify the artworks in communion with the three story space of the Memphis Scottish Rite Building. This is a celebratory event and precursor to upcoming and continued renovations that will lead to the dedication of a permanent contemporary art gallery and masonic collections museum on the entry level floor near the grand dinning hall. The CSE shows have opened in October for the past three years–making it an annual fall event that is becoming an institution open free to our community at large.

DAYADAHAHA

Opening: Saturday, August 27 at 7 PM - 10 PM in CDT

Oscillating between dyadic and eusocial suggestion, DAYADAHAHA presents examples of cooperation, cohesion, competition and reciprocity to playfully monitor our evolution of relationships. The group show format evokes a multicultural camp-sight built with cooperative and tribalist sentiments, divisions of labor, reciprocity, and altruistic acts.
