Robyn Day: Nobody Knows
April 28 to July 9 2021

“Nobody Knows promises to “tell all the truth but tell it slant.” Representing queer history by intentionally obfuscating it, Robyn Day’s paradoxical archive plays with the materiality of photographic substrates, deeply wedding process to the significations of its portraits.”

Sandi Haber Fifield @ Yancey Richardson Gallery

BE20_383, 2020. From the series As Birdsongs Emerge. Unique collaged archival pigment print, 31 1/2 x 23 1/2 inches.

Sandi Haber Fifield: As Birdsongs Emerge | The Certainty of Nothing
April 15 – May 28, 2021

Opening Reception and Book Signing: Saturday, April 17, 12 – 6pm

“In As Birdsongs Emerge, Haber Fifield expands upon the idea of the artist as an architect of nature. Recording and distilling her experiences through the camera lens, the photographs serve as the starting point for her studio process in which she begins to alter the images, cutting them into geometric and organic shapes, then reassembling them in playful, overlapping layers to transform the representation of the perceivable world while pushing the expressive boundaries of the medium. The compositions offer segments and shards of recognizable signifiers – palm fronds, cactus buds, rose bushes – that are spliced, layered, and abstracted into arrangements and associations that slow down the act of looking. Haber Fifield exploits the tension between the plane of the cut photograph and the three-dimensional depth of the imagery, expanding the photographic space while creating multiple points of entry. The viewer is challenged to use their eyes, mind, and memories to navigate the picture plane and question the strata of seeing.”

Joerg Metzner – Missing: The Tree At Greenwood Beach
April 1 – 25

Virtual Artist Talk: April 22 | 7:00 PM | Register via Zoom

“Missing: The Tree At Greenwood Beach focuses on one tree at Evanston’s Greenwood beach. For years this tree had been a meeting spot for friends and families. Up until its untimely demise due to climate change, it stood tall in the face of adversity, resisting the onslaught of wind and waves, and becoming a symbol of resilience. Particularly, in this past year of the pandemic and political turmoil, the tree had endeared itself to many. Joerg and many others knew what they had before it was gone.”

THE FOUND OBJECT @ Praxis Gallery & Photographic Art Center

THE FOUND OBJECT
April 17 – May 1, 2021

“A ‘found object’ is a material artifact discovered by chance and assigned esthetic value in an artist’s hand. Found art may include a wide array of objects and items either discarded, forgotten, dropped, or misplaced – such as shoes, a fork, shopping carts, signs, doll heads, abandoned cars, clocks, mementos, or any object that can be reimagined through the lens of a camera… so long as the artist believes that the discovered object possesses a certain aesthetic or talismanic quality – stemming from its appearance, social or personal history.

Praxis Gallery presents photographic art that investigates this idiom; exploring the subject of the “found object” as pure visual form, detached from its history or utility – or conversely, the representation of the object as a catalyst for exploring broader issues such as subjectivity and socialization, memory and loss, or love and death.”

20th Annual Worldwide Pinhole Photography Day
April 25, 2021
“Lockdown wonder”

For 20 years, Pinhole Day has enabled tens of thousands of
people worldwide to experience the joy of creating an image
using nothing more than the light travelling through a small
hole.

Every year, on the last Sunday in April, individuals and groups
make pinhole images in workshops and events around the
world to share in the magic of pinhole photography. Last year
over 2000 people from 57 countries uploaded photographs to
the online Pinhole Day gallery at www.pinholeday.org

This year, as much as ever, we need to see our world in a new
light. Whether on our own or as families in lockdown, using
nothing more than some bin liners and some cardboard, we can transform our front room into a magical
inverted projection of the outside world.

Free Zoom Talk hosted by EXP.21 April 25
“Aristotle’s Hole: 2500 years of pinhole photography by Justin Quinnell” from The Experimental Photography Festival

TRAVIS FOX: REMAINS TO BE SEEN
April 17-May 2, 2021

Artist Talk with Travis Fox on Zoom
Sunday, April 25, 4-5PM
Moderator: Susan Farkas

For more information go here

“Remains To Be Seen (Daylight) by Travis Fox, an aerial photographer and Emmy award-winning filmmaker, explores a disappearing but still tangible American landscape. From the Rust Belt towns of the Midwest, to the Borscht Belt resorts of the Catskill Mountains, to the lakebeds of Southern California, Fox uses aerial photography with documentary candor and precision to create a visually sumptuous record of former industrial sites and abandoned neighborhoods that persist as incisions on the landscape, scars in the memory, and traces of healing. His work, which is both beautiful and disorienting, piques the viewer’s interest and invites closer inspection.”

Darrel Ellis: A Composite Being @ CANDICE MADEY

Darrel Ellis: A Composite Being
April 17 – May 28, 2021

Opening event: Saturday, April 17, 12pm to 6pm

“A Composite Being includes images of Ellis’s friends, family, and self-portraits, some made through direct observation, and others filtered through the perspective of other photographers, including, importantly, his father. Ellis never met his father, Thomas Ellis, a studio photographer who captured a lively social scene in Harlem and the South Bronx in the 1950s. The elder Ellis, a postal worker at the time of his death, was unjustly killed by police two months before his son Darrel was born. The elder Ellis left behind an extensive archive of family photographs, which were discovered by Ellis when he was a student at The Whitney Independent Study Program in his early twenties. Over the next decade, Ellis would allow his father’s work to inform his own.”

Carrie Schneider: Deep Like @ CANDICE MADEY


Carrie Schneider: Deep Like
April 17 – May 28, 2021

Opening event: Saturday, April 17, 12pm to 6pm

“Schneider’s work challenges the camera’s presumed capacity for documentation and exactitude, employing multiple exposures, light bleeds and obstructions to express an associative collection of images and influences. Abstractions are comprised of images from the artist’s own archive and from intimate and personal moments from her artistic life, including screenshots of her friends’ work and social media feeds, and appropriations of art works that were formative to her ideas about art (Chantal Akerman, Pina Bausch, Francisco Goya, Sigmar Polke and Jeff Wall appear here)—affectionately referred to by the artist as her poetic blazon. Schneider works intuitively, often in the dark hours before sunrise, in a diaristic process akin to automatic writing. She repeats motifs ad infinitum until they are fully exhausted and a new exemplar emerges—one based not on a singular view, but one generated by unexpected commonalities and the affect of others.”
