  • Wish Book: Lay of the Land by John Pearson

    Nov 20th, 2018
    All-day Event
    Crosstown Arts at Crosstown Concourse, 1350 Concourse Ave., Suite 280

    Exhibition of photographic works by John Pearson
    Opening reception: Friday, Sept. 21, 6-8 pm
    On view: Sept. 21-Nov. 30
    Location: East Gallery & East Atrium

    Performance by >mancontrol< at 7 pm

    These large-scale, landscape cyanotypes on fabric link the tactile and the visual by committing the photographic process to the physical landscape. Pearson works outdoors on the ground, making 1:1 indexical photographic prints during midday sunlight. In these photographs, view is replaced by elemental record; while the horizon, removed from the composition, becomes the topographic support and source for construction of the images.

    Pearson’s intention is not to convey the solely visual appearance of place — in this case, the arid southern California landscape — but rather to invoke a more dynamic experience of place by means of the transformative nature of photography.

  • Natalie Eddings: Press

    Nov 20th, 2018
    5:00pm - 7:00pm
    The Martha and Robert Fogelman Galleries of Contemporary Art, The University of Memphis, 3175 Central Avenue, Art & Communication Bldg. Rooms 230 & 240, Memphis, TN 38152

    "Press," the first solo exhibition of the University of Memphis alumna Natalie Eddings (BFA, 2018), is a vicarious navigation of intergenerational, racial trauma and minority stress—where it comes from, what it looks like, and how, perhaps, how we deal a with it. The exhibition observes the collisions of the term “press”—of the past and the present, formalized in the bodies and souls of oppressed peoples featured in Eddings’ layered photographic portraits.

    In the exhibition, Eddings creates a dichotomy of the word “press.” On one hand, she interprets it as the press, or media coverage, journalism, and the distribution of news. This understanding of “press” is described, in part, by the First Amendment of the Constitution. On the other hand, she considers “press” as a root word derived from the Latin pressare which means to press down, hold fast or hold down, cover, crowd, compress. This is the basis for such words as impress, depress, oppress, suppress, repress, and others. She ascribes this understanding of the word to the essential nature of oppressed peoples.


     

    Faculty in the UofM Department of Art selected Eddings from the Fall 2017 and Spring 2018 graduating Bachelor of Fine Arts classes for this prestigious solo exhibition. An annual tradition, this exhibition provides an outstanding graduate with the opportunity to present a body of work as well as develop and execute an exhibition concept with Fogelman Galleries staff.
