© Annie Leibovitz. From Annie Leibovitz: Archive Project #1

Beginning 14 February, Hauser & Wirth will present ‘Annie Leibovitz. The Early Years, 1970 – 1983: Archive Project No. 1,’ a new installation of the 2017 exhibition of the same title presented by the LUMA Foundation’s Parc des Ateliers in Arles, France. As the first comprehensive exhibition in Los Angeles devoted to the earliest work of this renowned American artist, ‘The Early Years’ features more than 4,000 photographs taken between 1970 and 1983.

Annie Leibovitz bought her first camera in the summer of 1968 after her freshman year as a student at the San Francisco Art Institute. Hauser & Wirth’s exhibition begins with photographs taken during this formative time in Northern California and is punctuated by images of the Bay Area landscape and photographs shot during drives Leibovitz often took on the highways between San Francisco and Los Angeles. While still a student, Leibovitz approached Rolling Stone magazine in 1970 – just three years after its inception – with a few of her photographs.

‘Annie Leibovitz. The Early Years, 1970 – 1983: Archive Project No. 1’ will be on view at Hauser & Wirth Los Angeles daily from Tuesday – Sunday, 11 am – 6 pm from 14 February through 14 April 2019.

Defining Photographs And Radical Experiments in Inland Southern California, 1950 To The Present

Freedom can be found at the margins. That is the theme of a first-ever survey exhibition opening January 19, 2019. In the Sunshine of Neglect: Defining Photographs and Radical Experiments in Inland Southern California, 1950 to the Present is a simultaneous two-part exhibition at UCR ARTS: California Museum of Photography and the Riverside Art Museum. The show presents the title’s territory on the eastern edge of the Los Angeles Basin as an experimental tabula rasa playground for photographers, where nothing was at stake, so everything was possible.

In the Sunshine of Neglect includes 194 works by 54 photographers, including ArtCenter Photo department faculty member Ken Marchionno. Other featured photographers: Kim Abeles, Ansel Adams, Robert Adams, Lewis Baltz, Laurie Brown, Judy Chicago, Joe Deal, Lewis deSoto, John Divola, Christina Fernandez, Judy Fiskin, Robbert Flick, Anthony Hernandez, Sant Khalsa, Richard Misrach, Kenda North, Allan Sekula, Julie Shafer, Julius Shulman, Joel Sternfeld, Hiroshi Sugimoto, Larry Sultan, Kim Stringfellow, among others. It is curated by artist and UCR ARTS: California Museum of Photography Senior Curator Douglas McCulloh.

Opening reception will be held in both the Riverside Art Museum and the California Museum of Photography. The exhibition sites are three-and-a-half blocks apart. The exhibition will run through April 28, 2019.

Film Screening: Living in the Story

  • Los Angeles Center of Photography (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS
 
Screen Shot 2019-01-11 at 9.21.59 AM.png

Living in the Story documents thirty-five years of art-making by photographer Patrick Nagatani. The film portrays an artist deeply concerned with world events, who uses imagery and storytelling to raise awareness about modern anxieties, with an emphasis on the threat of nuclear weapons. Despite the serious content of his subject matter, his innovative images are compelling and entertaining. An engaging raconteur and teacher, Nagatani talks in the film about his projects, his unorthodox photographic techniques, and his subtle weaving together of fiction and fact.

A short version exploring three photographic series dealing with immigration/internment and nuclear issues is available. These issues are particularly relevant today, in light of escalating threats of war, toxic pollution and a growing refugee population worldwide.

Scott Nagatani’s hauntingly beautiful music score provides the film’s soundtrack.

About Learning From Detroit

Information Sessions
• Wednesday, January 23 (Week 2) at 1 pm, Hillside Conference Room A
• Monday, January 28 (Week 3) at 1 pm, 4th Floor 1111, Room 425

The city of Detroit, once the epicenter of the US auto industry, has come in the 21st century to represent American innovation, decline, and revitalization alike. As such, the city stands at the forefront of ongoing debates related to issues of land use and “ungrowth”, infrastructure, urban redevelopment and displacement, community activism, labor and manufacturing, racial justice, neoliberalism and globalization, and the transformation of the built environment. This research-driven transdisciplinary studio course (TDS), which will include an opportunity to live and study in Detroit for a month, will challenge students to identify new frameworks and vocabularies for thinking about this city and its role in the US and the world. What can artists and designers learn from—and contribute to—the communities of Detroit?

This course will introduce students to methods for incorporating community immersion and social engagement into the creative process. Students will learn about competing visions for the future of Detroit as imagined by residents, organizers, policy makers, artists, activists, scholars, and other stakeholders. Our relationships  with local scholars, institutions and organizations will help facilitate access to key sites and assist students in launching research projects responding to various issues and concerns related to Detroit’s past, present, and future. Ideal applicants will demonstrate an interest in conducting independent research via multiple design modalities with faculty guidance and support, as well as the appetite to explore and navigate a new city. In alignment with their own research interests, students will be encouraged to identify partner organizations and participate in their ongoing projects, helping these organizations achieve their own stated goals; this may include activities like gardening, building, and organizing as well as those more typically associated with art and design.

In this course we will examine how participating in and supporting community work can promote design’s critical engagement with pressing contemporary issues. Students will learn how research methods such as interviewing, observing, and participating can be used at various stages of the creative process to reveal diverse social perspectives and cultural phenomena. Frameworks from design research, ethnography, public policy, visual culture, history, community organizing, and related modalities will provide critical lenses for creative practice. The ethical dimensions of methods and outcomes will be addressed throughout the term, and examined through concrete contexts. The TDS will culminate in a publication and public presentation featuring student work. This course will be hosted by Humanities & Sciences, and is open to both undergraduate and graduate students.

For more information, be sure to check out the website and Instagram account for the program!

Exhibit Opening: REPRESENT: POWER IN COLOR

  • Armory Center for the Arts (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS
 
Unknown.jpeg

REPRESENT: POWER IN COLOR— an exhibition and dialogue that celebrates ArtCenter’s students and alumni of color and their explorations of self, identity, and visibility through creative work.

Art and design are visual and tactile practices often concerned with presenting our own interpretations of moments, people, places, and communities. In these fields, people of color are too often underrepresented, misrepresented, or rendered invisible in spite of our deep contributions to art, design, craft, and cultural production. Other times, the creative contributions made by people of color are tokenized in such a way that overshadows the work itself. Either way, we can’t extract ourselves from our work: this exhibit aims to give space to expressions of representation that are self-determined and celebratory, critical and exploratory. This exhibit features creatives whose work examines what it looks like to genuinely, respectfully, and fully represent who they are and how they experience the joys and burdens of representing themselves or their membership in a community or collective identity. 

Presented by the Antiracist Classroom and CHROMA, REPRESENT highlights the creative practices of Latinx, Asian, Black, and Indigenous artists and cultivates a space that prioritizes our experiences, representations of self, histories, and futures. REPRESENT manifests a space we urgently want to see in our studios, our classes, and the creative field more broadly. It is an action, an invitation to engage, and a celebration of what we have already collectively achieved.

Graduate Art Seminar: Anthony Huberman in conversation with Shahryar Nashat

 
Unknown.png

In his sculptures, photographs, and films, the work of Swiss artist Shahryar Nashat often addresses the representation of the body and the conventions of mediation and presentation. Nashat finds great pleasure in details, and his works—with their near-obsessive methods of framing and cropping—draw the viewer into a world of clandestine forms, artful gestures, and posturing. His work has been exhibited widely, including the Kunsthalle Basel (2017); Rubell Family Collection, Miami (2017); Portikus, Frankfurt (2016); Schinkel Pavilion, Berlin (2016); Walker Art Center, Minneapolis (2016); 356 Mission Road, Los Angeles (2015); and Carpenter Center for the Visual Arts, Cambridge (2015). He took part in the 20th Sydney Biennale (2016); La Biennale de Montréal (2016); the 8th Berlin Biennale (2014); and the 54th Venice Biennial (2011). Nashat is represented by David Kordansky Gallery, Los Angeles, and Rodeo Gallery, London. He is currently based in Los Angeles.

Congratulations to ArtCenter students on the opening of their group exhibition, Hyphenated American.

Hyphenated American is an exploration of our ethnic identity and cultural duality, or the lack of one. It is about adapting to a new culture while holding onto our roots. It embraces a way to thrive and create while living in a space that is constantly shifting and intertwining. We are exploring and questioning: who we are, who we are not, and who we become. Our aim is to share our experience.

Participants: Ashley Jo, Maricruz Meza, Carina M. Huynh, Maribel Barcena Lopez, Lulubi Garcia
