Glenville Exchange with Dawoud Bey

October 26, 2017

The Glenville Exchanges with Dawoud Bey
November 2, 2017 @ 6:00pm
FRONT Porch
1470 E. 105th St.
Cleveland, OH

Dawoud Bey (b. 1953, New York, NY) began his career as an artist in 1975 with a series of photographs, “Harlem, USA,” that were later exhibited in his first one-person exhibition at the Studio Museum in Harlem in 1979. Since that time exhibitions have included a mid-career survey of his work, “Dawoud Bey: Portraits 1975-1995,” and a survey exhibition in 2012 “Dawoud Bey: Picturing People.” Additionally, Bey’s critical writings include High Times Hard Times: New York Painting, 1967- 1975, The Van DerZee Studio, and David Hammons: Been There Done That. In 2018 a major forty-year retrospective monograph, Dawoud Bey: Seeing Deeply, will be published by the University of Texas Press.

Dawoud Bey photographs people and things that may otherwise be taken for granted. A 2017 MacArthur Fellow recipient, Bey features subjects who he says “are not always in the larger social conversation.” For the FRONT Triennial, Dawoud Bey’s exhibition will expand the notion of the documentary nature of photography and question the limits of historical reportage. More about Dawoud Bey.

At The Glenville Exchanges, Bey will have a dialog with youth photographers Jasmine, 17, Lai Lai, 17 and Yonnie, 19, who themselves are sometimes the subjects, to find voice through the lens of a camera. Often, these youth do not have the historical knowledge, coping skills, or benefits of having open, honest dialogue, and so have found expression in Shooting Without Bullets. The arts-based program, brain-child of artist-activist and youth advocate, Amanda King, assists black and brown teens to process complex social problems experienced by them and provides a radical platform to speak through artistic expression. More about this event.

Cleveland Print Room Exhibition

September 2, 2017

Cleveland Print Room
Laura Ruth Bidwell and Lissa Rivera Joint Exhibition
Opening: Friday, Sep 8, 5-9pm
Gallery Talk: Saturday, Sep 9, 4-5:30pm

Cleveland Print Room is excited to host a joint exhibition featuring the Cleveland debut of internationally-shown, NYC-based artist Lissa Rivera, and new work by Cleveland artist Laura Ruth Bidwell.

“Beautiful Boy,” the ongoing project of Lissa Rivera, focuses, as she writes, “on my domestic partner as muse, documenting our exploration of femininity and the nuances of photography as a transformative medium. I am using photography as a testing ground for my partner, who is genderqueer, to visualize multiple feminine identities. The photographs provide a canvas to investigate the visual language of womanhood that I was raised with, and that my partner is only beginning to explore. Through watching movies, listening to music and viewing countless photographs, I‘ve absorbed an archive of techniques to share. The photographs recall childhood fantasies of dressing up, tapping into deep-seated narratives about desire, beauty, freedom and cultural taboo. Although our emotional relationship is private and real, we perform a romanticism that is obsessive and decadent. The fantasy of dressing up transforms the experience of being photographed into one that fuses identity-creation with image-creation.” Rivera is represented by ClampArt. For further information on Lissa Rivera, see http://www.lissarivera.com/

About her new work for this exhibition, from her Gratiot series, Laura Ruth Bidwell states, “GRATIOT is a name. A place. A state of mind. Gratiot is a photographic project based on the fictional lives of Charles and Victoire Chouteau Gratiot, immortals who have navigated and thrived by night, across three centuries.” For further information on Laura Ruth Bidwell, see  http://www.laurabidwell.com/

Please join us for the opening this September. The exhibition runs from September 8 to November 4.

 

 

Jonny Lyons at Cleveland Print Room

May 15, 2017

Jonny Lyons: (Here Come) The Goloshans
Opening Reception: Friday, May 19, 5-8pm
Cleveland Print Room
2550 Superior Ave, Cleveland, OH 44114

Visit the Facebook event page.

Come meet AIRconnect, international artist-in-residence, Jonny Lyons from Glasgow, Scotland and see what he has created during his stay in Cleveland. His work is a direct response from Lyons time in Cleveland, people he has met through street photography, walking the streets and the stories they have shared together. From this sculptural work, he has created and staged short performances within the Cleveland landscape documented with analogue photography.

He has worked at Cleveland Print Room, Zygote Press and Praxis.

Jonny’s practice explores the fragility of friendship and adventure through performances documented by photography and film. He often creates ingenious devices, or functioning sculptures, to execute his ‘hand-crafted mischief’ which are presented – having fulfilled their one purpose – as relics of the event, together with the photographic evidence. But the photographs are not simply documentation of a sequence of anarchic events. They fix the moment between ’cause’ and ‘effect’ and are imbued with wit, melancholy and the physical humour of early silent cinema. In carrying out these processes, collaborations and journeys Lyons attempts to reconcile reckless youth with the pressures of adulthood; these are snap-shots of ‘Lost Boys’ putting their most dangerous, outlandish ideas into practice and – one feels, with some luck – getting away with it.

Special thanks to the Ohio Arts Council for funding this pilot program that not only brings an artist from Scotland to Cleveland but also sends an Ohio artist to Dundee, Scotland for 6-weeks to work at Dundee Contemporary Arts in their amazing print shop. This May, artist Anna Tararova will head to Scotland. This program was also funded through our CPR FOTO BRUNCH fundraiser in Fall 2016. Thanks to all who attended.

Call for Entries: Summit Art Space – Photography Now

CALL FOR ARTISTS
PHOTOGRAPHY NOW – The Art of Seeing

Deadline:  midnight May 12, 2017

Show runs July 14 – August 19, 2017

Click here to apply online.

Photography – “the art or process of producing images by the action of radiant energy and especially light on a sensitive surface (as film or an optical sensor),” is a broad field, and, in the upcoming PHOTOGRAPHY NOW – THE ART OF SEEING juried exhibition, Summit Artspace seeks to explore the range of that field. Regional photographic artists who work with film and use traditional darkroom techniques, those whose images are recorded digitally and processed on a computer, and those who push the boundaries of the medium in new directions, are all invited to enter. The only exception is that instant photography cannot be accepted, due to a concurrent exhibition which focuses on that medium.

Works from traditional to experimental and from representational to abstract are equally welcome, as are images presented on paper, transparency, through projection, or in some other format. What will unify this exhibition is that each selected work will represent the intersection of personal creativity and engagement with some form of photographic technology in order to explore the art of seeing at this moment in time, whether the gaze is turned outward or inward.

Eligibility: The exhibition is open to artists residing in or attending school in the following Ohio counties: Summit, Cuyahoga, Medina, Stark and Portage. Unfortunately, if you do not live in or attend school in one of these counties, we are unable to consider your work.

Deadline for Entry: Friday, May 12, 2017, by midnight.

ENTRY FEE: $15

Louis Draper and Leonard Freed: Two photographers – one black, one white – look at life during the civil rights era. Both artists were incredibly talented formalists who put that skill at the service of expression. They also shared a goal: to create dignified depictions of African Americans that portrayed them not as victims or heroes but as individuals.
