The pandemic means many people are spending a lot more time with their loved ones. Over the past year, this has prompted Emmy Lee Wall, Executive Director of the Capture Photography Festival, to reflect on the role of the camera in recording personal stories and family narratives.

“I think photography was really a tool through which family structures and family relationships were defined,” Wall said. Law by telephone. “If you think of people’s first experiences with photography, it’s usually with their family. Everyone is photographed at birth, usually by their parents or guardians, immediately.

She also points out that people’s idea of ​​what a “standard family” or “good family” looks like is often defined by a family portrait. In these images, she says, family members are sometimes dressed in their finery or presented with their most prized possessions.

“I think this interconnection between the definition of family and photography is really interesting,” says Wall.

This is what led her to curate Family Album, a featured exhibition at this year’s Capture Photography Festival. But it’s not just a recitation of typical family photographs. Far from there.

Local, national and international artists in the exhibition use photography as a tool to investigate their family histories.

Indian-born, New York-based photographer Cheryl Mukherji, for example, says in an interview in the Capture Photography Festival catalog that she decided to “subversively reinvent and recreate my mother’s wedding photographs.”

Over a period of five years, images were taken of her mother, who was then studying to become a surgeon, to attract a husband.

Mukherji hand-painted the images behind the self-portrait on the Lawthe cover. This represents the way Indian brides-to-be have often been shown: in front of works of art or with objects reflecting aspects of their personality.

In graduate school, Mukherji learned that a good portrait should capture the essence of a person. But in a YouTube interview, she says studio wedding photography wasn’t that at all: it was about projecting one person’s idea onto another person.

Wall compares the image on this week’s cover Law to an old fashioned personal ad. “It’s like the era version of posting on some sort of dating site,” she says.

One of the Vancouver artists in the exhibit, Rydel Cerezo, said in the catalog that he wanted to reflect on how his family members have changed physically during the pandemic. He readily admitted that his images “may lack social glamour, but the idea of ​​family in all its banality felt intimately fuller”.

“The examples of being photographed by one’s parents and the idea of ​​family presented through photography made me think of how family photographs have leaned more towards presenting ‘success’ in the age of Facebook,” Cerzo said. “During this time, it became apparent to me that family albums lived online and were usually presented in place of some sort of ‘realization’.”

In Family Album, Italian-born artist Silvia Rosi explores her personal story through self-portraits of her appearing as her mother and father, whose roots go back to Togo.

“In my work, there is the idea of ​​showing my parents’ past but doing it in a different way from the images that one might find in a family album”, explains Rosi in the Capture catalog. “I wanted to activate a reverse process.”

She adds that her images do not reflect reality but rather “attempt to capture moments that are not always joyful but express the complexity of the individual”.

Dainesha Nugent-Palache’s mother, based in Toronto, loved collecting fragile figurines, which made no sense to her as she grew up. In his still life photographs, the artist includes these objects, often in the background.

“When creating this work, I was thinking less about how photography constructs the idea of ​​a family and more about objects found in the domestic setting of a family home – in particular, the memories and stories associated with it. to these objects, and how they inform our family’s perception,” Nugent-Palache states in the catalog.

Wall says the images in the exhibit reflect the different dynamics that exist within families.

“These relationships are seen as positive by society, but can often be complicated or unfamiliar or changing and constrained,” Wall says.

Additionally, she adds that families can be both comforting and strained. “I think photography has become such an interesting tool for artists to explore things that are meant to be really familiar and close to us but are in many ways often unknowable.”

Another of the local artists, Anna Kasko, presents family photos of a different kind in the exhibition. According to Wall, Kasko found an old box of slides and tried to find the owner so they could be returned. But the person didn’t want it, which seemed very interesting to Wall because they were documenting a family history.

Kasko ended up editing those slides, transposing one image onto another to create something entirely new.

“She presents it as light boxes,” Wall explains. “They’re actually quite small and shiny.”

Wall compares them to jewelry, inviting the viewer to come closer. For the curator, these images raise the question of whether the photograph really presents a truth.

“They were true,” says Wall. “But what happens when you put them on top of each other?” And what new reality can you draw from it as a viewer looking at this work and creating your own meaning? »

In the Capture catalog, Kasko says she creates a more universal experience by interfering with the original intent “to blur the specificity of the subject.”

“I invite the audience to look and through the image, literally and allegorically,” she says.

A third Vancouver-based artist, Birthe Piontek, pointed out in the catalog that “the relationship between photography and truth is very complicated.”

“Even if an image tries to deliver fact rather than fiction, it can only show one specific angle: that of the photographer,” Piontek said. “Many other angles are left out, including everything that existed outside of the frame when the image was taken. At best, a photograph can represent one version of the truth.”

The people and objects in her images were staged, she added, noting that it was done “to tell a story and express the emotions my family members and I felt at losing my mother. because of dementia”.

Another artist, Meryl McMaster, said her Ancestral project was due to a search for family photographs. This was done in order for her to learn more about her native heritage (nêhiyaw [Plains Cree] Red Pheasant First Nation in Saskatchewan and Siksika Nation in Alberta).

These images lacked the level of detail she hoped to find, so she began collecting paintings and photographic portraits of 19th century Native women and men across the United States.

She focused on the works of photographers Edward S. Curtis and William Soule, as well as painter George Catlin, who documented traditional Aboriginal life in the belief that it would soon disappear.

“Their ideas and misrepresentations have spread to the public,” commented McMaster. “Actually, my ancestors were still very much alive, but not the way they were depicted in these pictures.”

She ended up putting these images on the bodies of herself and her father, which were covered in white pants like a screen.

“This process of playing with light and projection onto the body creates a surreal, ghostly quality to the images, with aspects of the subject past and present visible.”

Another artist, Toronto-based Anique Jordan, has an image on the show titled family scrapbook, which gave its name to the exhibition. She returned to her hometown of San Fernando, Trinidad, where her mother (like McMaster’s ancestors) did not have access to a camera.

According to Wall, Jordan wanted to put himself in a situation similar to what his mother went through growing up.

“She went to places that were culturally, socially, and economically important within her family,” Wall says. “She photographed herself on these sites.”

Because photography is so accessible and relatable, Wall thinks it places a great responsibility on the festival to take great care in how images are presented to audiences.

Family Album is presented free of charge at the Pendulum Gallery, which is located in the lobby of the HSBC Canada building on West Georgia Street, across from the Vancouver Art Gallery.

“I really feel like photography is a medium of our time,” Wall says. “It’s such a common language. It’s everywhere. Everyone connects to it in one way or another.

Most of these shows took years to plan. The expertise, scholarship, and logistics behind each of them would amaze you even in ordinary times. It is all the more impressive considering the obstacles, uncertainty and grief that so many Conservatives and their colleagues have had to negotiate in recent times. Hats off to the museum workers!

Here are 10 shows I’m passionate about – but honestly, there are so many more. Go to the websites of your favorite museums and see what they have in store for you.

Arguably the most acclaimed of the second generation of Abstract Expressionists, Mitchell rose to prominence in 1950s New York, before spending more than four decades in France. This retrospective, co-organized by the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, will open in Baltimore with 70 works borrowed from public and private collections in the United States and Europe.

Joan Mitchell March 6-August. 14 at the Baltimore Museum of Art. artbma.org.

This is an ambitious Cleveland preview of the modern sculptor’s famous post-war work, comprising 60 sculptures, paintings and drawings. Giacometti is best known for his slender sculptures, the fruit of fiercely focused attention over long periods of time. Identified with post-war existentialism as Meursault, the fictional protagonist of Albert Camus’ “The Stranger,” they seem to have been whittled down to a dense core by the space around them. The show will tour Houston, Seattle and Kansas City.

Alberto Giacometti: towards the ultimate figure From March 12 to June 12 at the Cleveland Museum of Art. clevelandart.org.

Security guards become conservative

Who spends more time in galleries than security guards? what they or they to like? What would be they or they do you want us to see? The Baltimore Museum of Art asked 17 of its agents to choose an exhibition of works from the collection. In collaboration with renowned art historian and curator Lowery Stokes Sims, the rangers not only chose the pieces, but also contributed research, design, didactics, content for the accompanying catalog and public programs. They are also paid for the extra work.

Time after time, lately more concerned with anticipating criticism and checking identity boxes than creating a coherent exhibition of a powerful new art, the Whitney Biennial, organized this year by David Breslin and Adrienne Edwards, nonetheless remains the most followed survey of contemporary art in America. However successful it may be overall, this year’s iteration, like most of its predecessors, is sure to introduce us to some fascinating new talent.

“Afro-Atlantic Stories”

This exhibition of more than 130 works of art dealing with the complex experiences and stories of the African diaspora, from the 17th century to the present day, arrives at the National Gallery of Art after a stay in Sao Paolo, Brazil, in 2018. It will include the art of Njideka Akunyili Crosby, the late David C. Driskell and Zanele Muholi, as well as historical paintings, sculptures and photographs not only from Africa, but also from Europe, the Americas and the Caribbean.

Afro-Atlantic Stories From April 10 to July 17 at the National Gallery of Art. nga.gov.

This exhibition at the Metropolitan Museum of Art will be the largest exhibition devoted to Homer, one of America’s most popular artists, in 25 years. Focused on the theme of conflict, it will present an overview of the career of the great 19th century artist in 90 oil paintings and watercolors.

Winslow Homer: Cross Currents From April 11 to July 31 at the Metropolitan Museum of Art. metmuseum.org.

Six feet high and seven feet wide, Henri Matisse’s “The Red Studio” (1911) caused perplexity when it first appeared. It is now one of the anchor masterpieces of the Museum of Modern Art in New York. MoMA will make the painting, which depicts six of Matisse’s paintings, three of his sculptures and a decorative ceramic plate scattered around his studio, the centerpiece of an exhibit exploring the circumstances of the work’s creation.

Matisse: The Red Studio May 1-Sept. 10 at the Museum of Modern Art. moma.org.

Four major museums curated this exhibit, dedicated to one of America’s most acclaimed and influential post-war painters, before deciding to cancel everything before it opened at the National Gallery in 2020. Their reasons were confusing, but it seems they wanted to be sensitive to some viewers’ imagined reactions and possibly some dreaded protests. (For a time, Guston, an outspoken opponent of racism, painted and drew stupid figures with Ku Klux Klan hoods to signify stupidity, evil, and psychic mud). The rearranged schedule means the show will kick off in Boston rather than the nation’s capital, where it will open in February 2023.

Philippe Guston Now May 1-Sept. 11 at the Boston Museum of Fine Arts. mfa.org.

This exhibition will attempt to demonstrate not only how important Cézanne – the artist’s ultimate artist – was in his time, but also how relevant he remains. It is certainly a case worth making. With 90 oil paintings, 40 drawings and watercolors, and two comprehensive sketchbooks, the exhibition is billed as the first major Cézanne retrospective in 25 years and the first in Chicago in 70 years. It should be a knockout.

Adams, 84, captured some of the most beautiful and clear landscapes in the history of American photography. Known for his aesthetic of modesty and compassion and his strong advocate for the environment, he believes in the ability of art to change us for the better. Adams is getting the full retrospective treatment at the National Gallery of Art, which will feature 175 of his photographs taken between 1965 and 2015.

We live in a society that abjures shared reality for the chaos of social media. The situation might have appealed to the Surrealists, and it certainly would have amused their leader, André Breton, who once hailed a self-destructive drug addict as the embodiment of surrealism. Although Guillaume Apollinaire is thought to have coined the term, Breton claimed it as his own with his October 1924 manifesto in a sort of battle over intellectual property with the poet Yvan Goll, a rival for control of the surrealist brand that had issued a similar decree two weeks earlier. Breton won, and the rest, as they say, is the history of art. Born out of collective PTSD in Europe after WWI, Surrealism sought to make the realm of the subconscious visible to a conscious world distracted by the initial wave of mass production and reproduction of the 20th century. Its complexities were manifold, as evidenced by our recommendations for the best books on surrealism. (Price and availability in effect at the time of publication.)

1. Leslie Jones, Draw surrealism
Drawing is essential for developing ideas, but as a stand-alone expression it is often seen as secondary to painting or sculpture. However, the medium played a pivotal role in shaping the principles of Surrealism, and this richly illustrated catalog accompanying a 2012-2013 exhibition at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA) shows how. For the surrealists, tapping the subconscious was fundamental, and drawing provided the key to it in the form of several unconventional techniques. Automatism, for example, transformed free association into concrete gesture and later became a cornerstone of abstract expressionism. The exquisite exercise of the corpse, a sort of telephone game played by drawing, explored the happy results of random juxtapositions. Rubbing, or rubbing, offered another means of dissociating the intention from the creative act. This book contains texts and works of 100 contributors and moves out of the original surrealist circle to include artists from Japan, Central Europe and the Americas.

2. André Breton, Surrealism and painting
When André Breton’s manifesto launched surrealism in 1924, the movement was meant to be literary rather than artistic. In response, he publishes Surrealism and painting four years later. Over time, the original treatise was combined into a book with other Breton writings published between 1928 and 1962, and this volume remains the main source on the subject. In it, Breton states that surrealism was not so much an aesthetic as a “purely internal model” for exploring the “dark continent of consciousness”. Breton’s essays deal with a wide range of artists associated with surrealism, as well as ruminations on popular art traditions (Haitian painting, Oceanic sculpture) that he considered relevant to the movement. Published in 2002, this edition was the first to be translated into English.

3. Stéphanie D’Alessandro and Matthew Gale, Surrealism beyond borders
Among the art isms of the early twentieth century, surrealism was arguably the most suitable for dissemination around the world for several reasons. First, he didn’t emphasize any particular style, instead welcoming abstraction, representation, or anything in between as long as he adhered to surrealist tenets. Second, the group had in André Breton a tireless leader and promoter whose writings and travels spread surrealist ideas far beyond the limits of their Parisian origins. The Metropolitan Museum’s extensive investigation into this chapter in the history of modern art, which runs through January 30, 2022, is the first of its kind and is repeated in this lavishly illustrated and deeply thought-out catalog, which, among others , reveals fascinating artists. and works of art hitherto known mainly to specialists. Surrealism beyond borders lives up to its title, offering a revealing look at how the movement has spread across the world, from Central Europe and Latin America to Asia and the Middle East, on a period of several years until the 1970s.

4. Oliver Shell and Oliver Tostmann, Monsters and Myths: Surrealism and War in the 1930s and 1940s
Just as Dada was a response to the catastrophe of 1914-1918, the Surrealists reflected the exhaustion and terror of the interwar period before the onset of a conflict that would prove to be even more devastating than its predecessor. Key figures of the movement like André Breton, André Masson and Max Ernst had served on the Western Front, so it is not surprising that they and other Surrealists (Salvador Dalí, Joan Miró and Yves Tanguy among them) were particularly alarmed, the prospects for war have increased with the rise of fascism. This catalog for a 2018 exhibition at the Wadsworth Atheneum explores how surrealism was galvanized by these developments and how its imagery became more gruesome as a result. Additionally, the authors of the book argue that this period produced some of the movement’s greatest works, particularly that of Ernst. Europe after the rains II, reproduced here in a superb gatefold. Monsters and myths shows how surrealism was born from one trauma to face another.

6. Whitney Chadwick, Women artists and the surrealist movement
Surrealism was hardly favorable to women: many of the male artists involved were misogynistic, as was much of their art. There were women who belonged to the movement, but they were expected to stand in the shadow of the men, serving as wives, mistresses and muses. But many of them were full-fledged artists whose work was as exceptional as that of the men. A few names – Dorothea Tanning, Meret Oppenheim – have been mentioned in standard accounts of modernist art history, but most have been ignored and their rediscovery only began in earnest after the rise of feminism in the years. 1970. Originally published in 1985, this book was the first major study of its kind, exploring the careers of female artists who, in addition to Tanning and Oppenheim, included Leonora Carrington, Frida Kahlo, Leonor Fini, Remedios Varo and others. Based in part on interviews and correspondence with a number of artists, the book is considered a classic.

7. Ruth Brandon, Surrealist Lives: The Surrealists 1917-1945
Focusing more on personalities than practices, Ruth Brandon Surreal lives is a sort of revealing group detailing the complicated relationships the Surrealists had with each other and with their leader, André Breton. The latter saw his role as that of guardian and chief executor – a position that has often rubbed artists upside down – and as such colored the movement’s love-hate dynamic. Salvador Dalí sums it up in his inimitable way: “The surrealist group was a coterie of pederasts all in love with André Breton. They all adored him and he loved to exercise his relentless power over them. Brandon goes into all of this and more, recounting the various peccadilloes, jealousies, indiscretions, and sexual relationships (including the female swap incidents) that made the pot boil. In bringing these characters to life, however, Brandon’s goal is not to be salacious, but rather to define what it meant to be a surrealist for an eccentric group of icons from the history of the art.

As we often hear in the fight against climate change, better late than never to tackle it. And the world’s largest museum system must immediately tackle the looming problem.

The New York Times published an article in late November describing the challenges the Smithsonian Institution faces with climate change and how it threatens the millions of artifacts stored and displayed in the 11 museums located on the National Mall.

As writer Christopher Flavelle described the situation: “An institution popular with the public, well funded and staffed with leading experts protects the nation’s treasures with sandbags and trash cans.

As the article points out, the problem with museums stems from the fact that the grounds of the National Mall were once a swamp. Scientists say the earth could eventually be submerged by water and threaten basements and ground floors and floodplains that contain millions of documents and historical artifacts.

The American History Museum is already experiencing water intrusions in its basement, where staff try to contain water with flood barriers, sensors that sound alarms when areas are wet, and plastic trash cans on wheels that contain cat litter and are designed to absorb water.

No artifacts have been lost yet, but as one facilities manager told The Times, “We’re kind of in trial and error. It’s about managing water.

In addition to potential water damage, electrical and ventilation systems in buildings could fail and affect humidity levels that help valuable works of art and documents.

The projects proposed to alleviate the problems are blocked by funding, most of which comes from congressional approval, and by the entities charged with controlling the floods. Potential groups include the National Park Service and the Army Corps of Engineers, among others.

JOAN KEE ON AFRO-ATLANTIC STORIES https://expo-monet.com/joan-kee-on-afro-atlantic-stories/ Wed, 01 Dec 2021 05:02:38 +0000 https://expo-monet.com/joan-kee-on-afro-atlantic-stories/ Photo: Brian J.

Inspired by Oswald de Andrade’s “Antropófago Manifesto” (Manifeste anthropophage) from 1928 and what one might call the ethics of cannibalism, Afro-Atlantic stories (DelMonico Books), edited by Adriano Pedrosa and Tomás Toledo, embraces the art of the four continents to reject the “canned conscience” that Andrade deplored as the scourge of life. Considerably revised since its initial manifestation as a publication accompanying the 2018 exhibition of the same name (organized by the Museu de Arte de São Paulo and the Instituto Tomie Ohtake and which will soon embark on an ambitious tour of the United States), Afro-Atlantic stories breathes new life into comparative research, demonstrating that side-by-side comparison can reveal a spirit of camaraderie rather than competition. Boasting a striking array of juxtapositions, including Victor Meirelles ‘portrait of conductor Henrique Alves de Mesquita in 1862 alongside Barkley L. Hendricks’ portrait of George Jules Taylor in 1972, the book traverses the silos of studies ethnic, cultural and regional to get closer to the geometry of a real and imagined movement in which the works of art overlap. As you would expect from any multi-author volume, the essays inside are spotty; we look forward to what readers will do with the cumulative product: a feast of images and ideas that resolutely moves away from stories that invariably prioritize portrayal and the author’s intention rather than to the apparent sensitivity of works of art crossing multiple historical, cultural and political settings. Borrowing from Paul Gilroy’s construction of a “black Atlantic” while also recognizing the survivals of slavery, Afro-Atlantic stories takes up the challenges of so-called global modernism by boldly laying down the conditions for an art history that is for, rather than against, a global majority – a majority with which existing institutional structures are just beginning to reckon.

Joan Kee is professor of art history at the University of Michigan and contributing editor to Art forum. She is currently working on a book project called The geometries of Afro-Asia.
