Adam Golfer, Diana Matar, Hrvoje Slovenc: Traversing the Past
January 18—April 1, 2018

OPENING RECEPTION: January 18, 2018, 5:00 p.m.

“Traversing the Past: Adam Golfer, Diana Matar, Hrvoje Slovenc at the Museum of Contemporary Photography at Columbia College Chicago presents the work of three artists, all of whom trace their family stories to histories of political turmoil, violence, and displacement. In using personal experiences as starting points, the artists transform the autobiographical into a multivalent lens through which to view complex political narratives. Adam Golfer, Diana Matar, and Hrvoje Slovenc use family stories originating during World War II, the Qaddafi regime in Libya, and the Croatian War of Independence, respectively, as a starting point for examining how traces of the past confound and obscure the present.”

JEAN-PIERRE LAFFONT: TURBULENT AMERICA
NOVEMBER 16, 2017 -JANUARY 6, 2018

RSVP: OPENING RECEPTION THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 16, 6-8 PM

“This is the first US exhibition of “Turbulent America,” which represents a selection of Jean-Pierre Laffont’s work from the 1960s, ‘70s, and ‘80s that captures the genuine sense of what it was like to live in America during these decades. Speaking about these images Laffont comments, “They do what photographs do best: freeze decisive moments in time for future examination. These photographs form a personal and historical portrait of a country I have always viewed critically but affectionately, and to which I bear immense gratitude.””

Brett Leigh Dicks @ Maitland Gaol’s historic B Wing Cell Block


Brett Leigh Dicks – Behind These Walls: Photographs of Decommissioned Australian Gaols
16 December 2017 – 23 February 2018

“Empty prisons are eerie places. Each prison has its own history, character, and stories to tell, but so too does every cell. Etched into their walls is the passing of successive generations of inmates each of who has carved their passing. For the past decade Australian photographer, Brett Leigh Dicks, has been photographing abandoned prisons the world over. His latest project has seen the US-based photographer exploring decommissioned prisons and gaols in his homeland of Australia. ”

Hygiene – A Circle of Life
8 November 2017 – 21 January 2018

“Ever since Fotografiska initiated the series seven years ago, the Fotografiska For Life exhibitions have contributed to putting the spotlight on important issues that need to be addressed. In Sweden and internationally. Photography is an inclusive art form that elicits involvement, which is why it is so effective in reaching both mind and soul and provoking new thinking. This, in turn, leads to commitment and a desire to change things. Something happens when you encounter art – you encounter your fellow beings and you encounter yourself. Fotografiska’s vision is always to inspire a more conscious world.”

VALDIR CRUZ @ Throckmorton Fine Art


VALDIR CRUZ: P r e s e n c e s
December 7, 2017 – February 24, 2018

“Over the past three decades, Cruz has chronicled unique and ephemeral places in Brazil where the people and the landscapes create an indelible impression on the viewer. In the words of Spencer Throckmorton, “Valdir Cruz’s exquisite photography bears out Tolstoy’s observation that to be universal one only needs to talk about his own village.” Kraige Block, Executive Director of Throckmorton Fine Art says, “Valdir Cruz is as much an anthropologist as a photographer. The power of these images of Brazilian people, distinctive landscapes, and magnificent waterfalls opens a discussion about human societies and the environment.””

Stacy Kranitz @ Tracey Morgan Gallery


Stacy Kranitz: Fulcrum of Malice
December 1st –

Opening Friday, December 1st, 6-8 PM

“Stacy Kranitz’s work explores history, representation and otherness within the documentary tradition. She uses photography to open up a narrative that confronts our understanding of culture; one poised between notions of what is right and what is wrong. Kranitz is interested in carving out a path that explores the subjective relationship to the people she photographs resulting in images that are meant to implicate the photographer as well as the viewer.”

Jean-Pierre Laffont @ Sous Les Etoiles Gallery


Jean-Pierre Laffont: Turbulent America
NOVEMBER 16, 2017 -JANUARY 6, 2018

OPENING RECEPTION THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 16, 6-8 PM

“As a photographer for the Gamma Agency, Sygma Photo News, as well as a White House Correspondent, Laffont traveled across the country to portray the America that he saw with an insatiable curiosity. His photographs provide viewers with an unaltered look into American life, from protests for and against the Vietnam War, Civil Rights movements marching on Washington, Nixon’s departure from the White House, the Flower Power movement, the first gay pride parades, or even New York gangs. Speaking about these images Laffont comments, “They do what photographs do best: freeze decisive moments in time for future examination. These photographs form a personal and historical portrait of a country I have always viewed critically but affectionately, and to which I bear immense gratitude.””

“‘AFRIKA – THE WILD’ will be the international first time showing by photographers Ken and Michelle Dyball.
