Elaine Stocki Exhibition at SAAG

Gallery artist Elaine Stocki is pleased to invite you to her current exhibition, 711, on view at Southern Alberta Art Gallery until February 1, 2015.

"Elaine Stocki's photography draws upon the raw unpredictability of American street photography, yet exploits the refinement and control of studio-constructed images.  Her large, hand-tinted silver gelatin prints balance photographic traditions with contemporary compositions and subjects from amateur wrestlers to classic nudes.  Stocki's work evokes honesty and vulnerability, and remains unsettling for its constructed and anachronic nature." - Southern Alberta Art Gallery

Larry Towell In New York Times Lens Blog


Losing the Media War in Afghanistan

"The war in Afghanistan has been difficult to document for even the most determined of Western photojournalists. By the time Larry Towell arrived there in 2008, most news outlets had abandoned regular coverage because of the extreme expense and danger — and a lack of interest from editors and the American public. What little visual coverage there was relied on embedded journalists.

But Mr. Towell had photographed the 2001 attacks on the World Trade Center and felt compelled to investigate what had happened in Afghanistan since then. So he paid his own way there." - James Estrin for the New York Times Lens Blog

The Robert Giard Foundation 2014 Year-End Appeal

A message from Carl Sylvestre, President of The Robert Giard Foundation:

Dear Friends,

‘Tis the season for giving. We hope you will take inspiration from Michael Cunningham’s moving words. The Robert Giard Foundation supports emerging artists in photography, video, and film who work with subject matter often too provocative for other institutional grants. Join with us to help visual artists explore issues of sexuality, gender, and LGBTQ experience. Help us give them the recognition they richly deserve and encourage them to continue doing work that might just matter.

This year, we have a donor committed to matching gifts up to $5,000; your dollars will go further than ever. So please give as generously as you can to ensure the fellowship’s long life. All gifts are tax-deductible to the extent provided by law.

DONATE HERE

For more information on our public events and exhibitions this past year as outlined in our Annual Report, visit our website at www.robertgiardfoundation.com.

Sunil Gupta In The New Yorker and L'Oeil de la Photographie

Sunil Gupta's exhibition, Out and About: New York and New Delhi, is currently on view at Sepia Eye until December 20th.

"The Indian photographer lived in New York in the mid-nineteen-seventies, when he took the black-and-white photographs in his 'Christopher Street' series, shown here for the first time. His subjects are other gay men cruising the busy Village artery, dressed in the style of the time: bomber jackets, tight jeans, plaid shirts, aviator shades. But the work owes its frisson to more than just fashion; even when no glances are exchanged, Gupta gives his images a subtle erotic charge and a genuine tenderness." - The New Yorker

Book Launch - Inside Kingston Penitentiary (1935-2013)


Pin-up, Upper E Range, KP 2013 © Geoffrey James

Dates: December 6th, 2pm-5pm
Location: Stephen Bulger Gallery, 1026 Queen Street West

Stephen Bulger Gallery and Black Dog Publishing invite you to the launch of Geoffrey James’ Inside Kingston Penitentiary 1835-2013 on Saturday, December 6 from 2-5pm.  The artist will be present.

Geoffrey James was granted unprecedented access to Canada’s most infamous prison for the last six years of its institutional life.  As Jan Allen, Director of the Agnes Etherington Art Centre, writes in the book’s afterword: His success in capturing what is by definition a space of confinement is fascinating given that the artist is best known for expansive landscape views and panoramas. Here,  the orchestration of visual perception is brought to bear on unrelenting spatial closure: every subtlety has been concentrated.  This quality of precise attention lends a visceral charge of intimacy to the KP images that exceeds their already compelling subject matter.

192 pages, 110 duotone and colour images, Hardcover.  With an essay by the photographer and an afterword by Jan Allen.

Special Book Launch Price of $35, taxes included.

George Zimbel In Exhibition In Spain

Gallery artist George Zimbel currently has work on view at the Institut ValenciĆ  d'Art Modern in Valencia, Spain. The exhibition, Urban Landscape in the IVAM Photography Collection, is on view until February 15, 2015.

"The selection of pictures presented here invites us to journey through the etymology of landscape. The English word – landscape – refers basically to visible experience, derived from descriptive geography, whereas in its Romanic version – paisaje, from the Latin pagus – the presence of the action suffix involves the mental construction and activity of man, the fundamental actor who uses and transforms it." - Institut ValenciĆ  d'Art Modern

Scott Conarroe in Canadian Art's Great Fall Reads

Canadian Art has included gallery artist Scott Conarroe's book By Rail and by Sea in their 7 Great Fall Art Reads article.

"Former foreign correspondent and award-winning author Simon Winchester adds an eloquent introductory essay on disaster and the contradictory poetics of the marginal spaces where land meets sea to this monograph on the work of Vancouver- and Zurich-based photographer Scott Conarroe. The images that follow trace Conarroe’s journey across North America, documenting rail lines as an ever-present arterial split between man, nature and industry. A companion photo project finds telling parallels in interrupted coastlines from Iqaluit to Corpus Christi." - Canadian Art
