Visions from America:
Photographs from the Whitney Museum of American Art, 1940-2000


Rochester Art Center

January 15th – March 13th 2005

Since its invention more than 160 years ago, photography has served
the curiosities of scientists, amateurs, and artists alike. As an
observational tool, the camera has provided detailed images of the
world we live in. As a mode of creative expression, photography has
reflected the concerns and ideas of its time. Visions from America
reveals the diversity of photographic vision that has emerged in the
past sixty years, from the street photographs of the New York School to
the photographic actions of Conceptual artists to today’s digital
innovations.
 
Visions from America contains photographic works by more than 104
artists from the Whitney Museum’s permanent collection. Well-known
photographers along with emerging artists will be featured, including
Diane Arbus, Kristin Capp, William Eggleston, Robert Frank, Lee
Friedlander, Anna Gaskell, Nan Goldin, Peter Hujar, Mary Ellen Mark,
Richard Misrach, Catherine Opie, Aaron Siskind, Hiroshi Sugimoto, Chris
Verene, and Garry Winogrand.
 
>From January 15th through March 13th, 2005, the Rochester Art Center
will present an exhibition of photographs drawn entirely from the
Whitney Museum of American Art’s own permanent collection. With more
than 150 American photographs made from 1950 to the present, Visions
from America spotlights works that express a quintessentially American
sensibility.


Abinadi Meza: The Prisoner

audio + video series
February 4th – March 31st, 2005
 
Opening Reception February, 4th 7-9 pm

The Prisoner, a 15-minute animation with sound, uses images
appropriated from Carl Dreyer's silent film La Passion de Jeanne d'Arc.
This footage is re-rendered as an animation by tracing thousands of
frames from the film. The Prisoner focuses on Jeanne's political status
as a prisoner. She is utterly alone and subject to the power of her
captors. At the hands of her interrogators and prison guards she is
tortured and eventually executed. Throughout the ordeal, she remains an
individual. Her judges assume and express power as a group.

Abinadi Meza is an artist based in Minneapolis-St. Paul. Meza is an
adjunct faculty member of the University of Minnesota where he teaches
Sound Art and Electronic Art. Meza's work has been shown
internationally, recently appearing in the Biennale for Electronic Art,
Perth Australia; Rooseum Test Site, Mälmo Sweden; Loisaida Cortos Film
Festival, New York City; and La Casa Encendida, Madrid Spain.

Meza holds a BA in art (Painting) from the University of Northern Iowa,
and an MFA in Art (Time and Interactivity) from the University of
Minnesota. In addition he has studied creative writing and poetry at
Drake University, and Butoh with master instructors from Europe, South
America and Japan. In February, he will perform in the Spark Festival
of Electronic Music and Art in Minneapolis.


The Fertile Mind of Margo Selski

February 4th – March 31st, 2005
Accent Gallery

Opening Reception February, 4th 7-9 pm

Echoing northern Flemish masterpieces, Margo Selski explores visual
storytelling through her figurative paintings.  Working with oil paint
and beeswax, Selski creates a place where imaginary characters take on
a life of their own. Illustrated backgrounds and black and white
checked floors set the state for her detailed, layered, and densely,
rich images.  Within in familiar compositions, Selski slowly surprises
viewers with depictions of ghostly women and children, suspended
marionettes, jeweled eggs, and fantastical creatures.

Margo Selski received her Masters of Fine Arts Degree from the
University of Minnesota in 1998. She also received her Masters in Art
for Children from the State University of New York in Brockport in
1992.  She lives and works as a full-time painter in St. Paul,
Minnesota.  She has exhibited throughout the country and recently
received a Minnesota State Arts Board Grant in 2004.

Erik Ullanderson: Renvois, More Contradictions Than Distinctions or I
Spent My Time in Stinkpitas
Atrium Gallery: 3rd Floor Emerging Artist Series


January 15 – March 13

Erik Ullanderson focuses on the complexities, difficulties and
confusions of personal communication, while systematically considering
distributed intelligence and probabilistic "ifs”.  This conceptual
point of departure combined with a modicum of personal iconography
becomes Ullanderson’s attempt at communication.  While examining this
interconnectedness of objects and situations, Ullanderson elaborates on
the humorous or awkward misunderstandings that may occur in these
contexts though his multi-component installations. Comprised of intense
and impulsive drawings on paper, abstract or graphical representations
applied directly to the wall, silk-screened stickers, and various other
materials, Ullanderson’s installations become a collection of
interrelated personal thoughts, feelings, and emotions.  Erik
Ullanderson received his B.F.A. from the School of the Art Institute in
Chicago in 1994.  His most recently participated in New Drawing: Seven
Curatorial Visions at the Katherine E. Nash Gallery at the University
of Minnesota.

IICE Event


Artist Workshop: Alec Soth
The Photographic Portrait:
A Workshop with Alec Soth
 
 
In conjunction with the exhibition Visions from America: Photographs
from the Whitney Museum of American Art 1940 – 2001, eight area 11th
and 12th grade students had the unique opportunity to work with noted
photographer Alec Soth, making photographs and discussing contemporary
photographic practice, focusing specifically on the portrait.
 
More than simply a photograph of a person, a portrait is a creative
conversation between photographer and subject. The tone and character
of this conversation is significantly altered by the tools the
photographer chooses to use. In this workshop, students experimented
with two very different cameras (digital and large format) and explored
the way they alter the relationship between photographer and subject.
 The completed 8” x 10” Polaroid photographs will remain on display in
the third floor hallway throughout the Whitney Exhibition.  
 
Alec Soth (b. 1969) is a photographer living in Minneapolis,
Minnesota. He has received fellowships from the McKnight and Jerome
Foundations and was the recipient of the 2003 Santa Fe Prize for
Photography. His photographs are in major public and private
collections, including the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, the
Museum of Fine Arts Houston and the Walker Art Center. His work has
been featured in numerous solo and group exhibitions, including the
2004 Whitney Biennial. His first book, Sleeping by the Mississippi, was
published in 2004. Soth has photographed for The New York Times
Magazine, Fortune and Newsweek. In 2004, he became a nominee of Magnum
Photos
