The SCAD Museum of Art presents the first solo U.S. museum exhibition by artist Tallur L.N. "Balancing Act" features a selection of new and recent sculpture, two-dimensional wood works, and the U.S. premiere of "Apocalypse"(2010) an electromagnetic coin-polishing system.

Employing a range of materials including bronze, wood, terracotta, silicone, concrete and silver, Tallur L.N. creates sculpture, wall pieces, site-specific installations and interactive works that delve deep into the dichotomies between the tangible and the ethereal, the figurative and the abstract, and the decorative and the conceptual.

"Lakes and Reservoirs," an exhibition of photographs by Los Angeles-based photographer Matthew Brandt, is the artist’s first solo show in the Southeast. Influenced largely by generations of landscape photographers before him, Brandt’s process of exploration and experimentation takes the tradition one step further.

Using his surroundings as an additive medium, Brandt’s printed photographs are bathed in a mixture of water collected from the site in which the composition was derived. Through this experimental process, the artist becomes closer to his specific subjects and gains a better understanding of his surroundings as a whole. This controlled technique mirrors the chemical composite of the photographed landscape and therefore symbolizes today’s ecological concerns about the deterioration of our natural world.

The SCAD Museum of Art presents "Girl: Continued…," the first exhibition in a series that highlights a work from the permanent collection by an artist whose influence has greatly impacted the artistic practices of SCAD professors and alumni.

In this instance, the late yet extremely influential American photographer Francesca Woodman’s photograph "Self-portrait Talking To Vince" serves as a focal point presented alongside seven SCAD artists’ pieces. This curatorial approach showcases Woodman’s legacy and her impact on future generations of photographers. The exhibited photographs share a kinship with Woodman’s ethereal style and her haunting manipulation of the female body in both portraiture and self-portraiture.

Artists include:

  • Deanne Andrus, M.F.A., photography, 2013, B.F.A., photography, 2010
  • Sandrine Arons, M.F.A. photography student
  • Lauren Hughes, B.F.A., photography, 2010
  • Tobia Makover, M.F.A., photography, 2001

"Process Art (B-E-A-G-G-R-E-S-S-I-V-E)" by artist Nathan Mabry is a six-piece, sculpture-based installation that will be exhibited in the Alex Townsend Grand Courtyard at the SCAD Museum of Art.

Nathan Mabry’s sculptures evoke a poignant humor and notions of high- and low-brow aesthetics, merging the two in a jocular yet analytical way. In these works, Mabry appropriates the figures of Auguste Rodin’s "The Burghers of Calais," but in this case they are adorned with familiar American sports mascot heads. Mabry carefully chooses mascots with facial expressions that directly reflect the body language of the Burghers and fuses the somber feeling of the original into a cohesive contemporary union. In his own words, Mabry "crashes" multiple aesthetics together, building and expanding upon recontextualized contemporary metaphors.

The SCAD Museum of Art presents "RIVERS," an exhibition of collaborative paintings by the Bronx, New York-based artists Tim Rollins and K.O.S. (Kids of Survival). Founded by Rollins more than 30 years ago, the K.O.S. group has created paintings inspired by classic works of literature and music that can be found in the permanent collections of more than 95 museums worldwide.

In "RIVERS," the artists have selected paintings inspired by historic and literary narratives of the South including the speeches of Martin Luther King Jr.; Harriet Jacobs’ "Incidents in the Life of a Slave Girl"; Mark Twain’s "Adventures of Huckleberry Finn"; and W.E.B. Du Bois' "Darkwater," among others.

Additionally, a new creation was made with junior high school students at the Esther F. Garrison School of Visual and Performing Arts in Savannah, Georgia, based on Duke Ellington’s ballet score for "The River." From the Bronx River to the Savannah River, Rollins and K.O.S. showcase the transcendence of these themes and their impact on the cultural fabric of the United States and beyond.

Students from the Esther F. Garrison School of Visual and Performing Arts who contributed to this work include:

  • Crystal Bride
  • Cade Cunningham
  • Devin Francois
  • Winter Jones
  • Savannah Jones
  • Edward Long
  • Kristina Lowry

Viviane Sassen’s "In and Out of Fashion" is on view at the museum’s André Leon Talley Gallery, the only dedicated couture gallery in the southern U.S. In this installation conceived for the SCAD Museum of Art, Sassen experiments with bringing elements from her staged photography (mirrors, collage, tape, color filters) into the museum space. The intricate layering of lights and images reflects Sassen’s bewildering language, with its intertwined bodies, sculptural compositions and abstract forms.  Her fashion photography is marked by innovative strength and surreal beauty.

The collaboration with a team of stylists, art directors, models and makeup artists creates the conditions for a creative playground, a "laboratory" in which Sassen pushes the limits of conventional forms and colors, subverting fashion’s prevailing codes and conventions. Models’ limbs are cut out, merged into the background or turned into amorphous tangles; deep color patches make innocuous images otherworldly. The projection of these bold compositions onto mirrors and walls at various angles, with disregard to the constraints of gravity, makes the riddles in Sassen’s images even more complex.

"The Triptych," making its museum premiere, is Yellin’s largest and most complex work, a massive 12-ton, three-paneled epic, embodying his vision of the world and consciousness. For Yellin, "the universe and the mind are shadowy places seething with dark magic, seas of boundless depth and possibility, overflowing with joy and disaster." In this composition of clippings, acrylic and glass, Yellin presents a surreal spectacle.

The SCAD exhibitions department presents "American Byway: Selections from US Highway 80," a solo exhibition by SCAD professor and photography chair Rebecca Nolan. This body of work focuses on elements of the bypassed areas of rural America from coast to coast. Highway 80 is an interstate that was made obsolete due to construction of the modern freeway. Subsequently, the townships and various populated areas along this route have been neglected. Nolan’s understated photos capture delicate elements of a time and places passed by, remains of an America seemingly so far gone, yet still so near.

Reception: Friday, Feb. 21, 5-7 p.m.

For his site-responsive sculptural installation, "Submerged," artist Jason Middlebrook worked with reclaimed wood that has a deep connection to the local area and the history of the region. Middlebrook transformed logs that were submerged in the Savannah River and provided infrastructure for more than 200 years. In Submerged, these planed and painted planks hang from various heights and angles throughout the museum’s lobby.

A sculpture taking the form of a classic chandelier and created from the pointed tips of the river logs welcomes viewers in the museum’s entrance. Rich in layered meaning, these hanging sculptures speak to the significance of the logs and their impact on the economy of Savannah, as they were as necessary to the growth and development of the region as were the people who carved them.  The artist describes the installation as "an homage to the work and the workers that built the South and the history of the building in which they are presented."

SCAD presents the debut of a new multichannel sound and video installation by Micah and Whitney Stansell, created especially for deFINE ART. Set in the 1980s, "Scarlet Air" focuses on an industrial and suburban pre-Internet existence at the dawn of hyperconsumerism in the U.S. Filtered through a lens that is unique to the American South, the work focuses on a female protagonist, her relationships, the liminal spaces of her existence and the environment that surrounds her.

"Manipulated" features the innovative work of 10 contemporary artists who use experimental and often alternative studio and darkroom photography processes to expand the expressive possibilities and structure of making photographs.

As digital cameras have steadily replaced film over the past decade, Photoshop and other editing tools have made photograph "processing" a largely computer-aided activity devoid of direct manipulation by the artist’s hand. The recent revival of more labor-intensive traditional and avant-garde techniques, such as camera obscura, daguerreotypes, photograms and Van Dyke prints, attests to an energized state of expression in contemporary photography and its creative potential to merge with drawing, collage, textiles, painting and installation.

The artists in "Manipulated" explore this fertile new ground in image making, and in the process, are directly influencing the future direction of conceptual photography.

Featured artists include:

  • Kim Anno
  • Radcliffe Bailey
  • Christopher Bucklow
  • Chuck Close
  • Dan Estabrook
  • Abelardo Morell
  • Richard Mosse
  • Mariah Robertson
  • Alison Rossiter

Abrie Fourie's "Oblique," featuring photographs and a new audio work, is guest-curated by Storm Janse van Rensburg. This expanded version of the traveling exhibition has been previously shown at SCAD Savannah, as well as in numerous venues in Germany and South Africa, and follows the publication of the artist's monograph of the same name, published in 2011.

Central to Fourie's work is a narration by well-known South African actor Marcel van Heerden of a text by author and theorist Ivan Vladislavić. Fourie's practice can be seen as as an ongoing archive, a catalog of memories.

SCAD presents "Meditations on Irony," a solo exhibition by Tibetan-born, British artist Gonkar Gyatso that illuminates his practice of interweaving traditional Buddhist iconography with the detritus of pop culture. Exploring themes of identity, hegemony, globalization and hybridity, the exhibition features prints, posters and sculptural works from 2006-present, which have been constructed with thousands of stickers, paper collage and logos. Gyatso’s usurpation of our media-saturated environments and repetitive use of the Buddha illustrate his interest in ubiquity and accessibility. What once was "white noise" becomes a cacophony of carefully composed images, beautifully constructed into an iconographic form or word.

SCAD exhibitions presents "Undertone," an exhibition of recent work by Orly Genger. Genger is renowned for her ambitious environmental sculptures of intricate, hand-knotted rope coated in paint, most recently "Red, Yellow and Blue," which debuted in New York City's Madison Square Park in 2013. The foundation of Genger's process is rooted in the traditional female crafts of crochet and knitting. However, the scale and physicality of her process brings to mind such Modernist masters as Richard Serra and Robert Smithson.

Curated by Alexandra Sachs, "Undertone" includes two large-scale rope works that reference Donald Judd's "stacks" sculptures, along with a selection of recent drawings and cast wall sculptures.

Alfredo Jaar’s "Shadows," a large-scale SCAD-commissioned installation, will make its world premiere at deFINE ART. This work follows in the footsteps of "The Sound of Silence" (2006) as the second part of a trilogy of installations revolving around the power of a single extraordinary documentary image.

Organized by Laurie Ann Farrell, SCAD executive director of exhibitions, "Shadows" unravels the narrative history of a stirring photograph taken by Koen Wessing near Estelí, Nicaragua, at the height of the revolution in September 1978. The structure of "Shadows" is inspired by "Chili, September 1973," a photo-based book created by Wessing about that fateful month in Chile. 

Echoing the photographer’s masterpiece and paying homage to the golden age of photojournalism, Jaar’s installation employs a similar strategy to construct narrative. Viewers are guided through "Shadows" by light and sequential images that simultaneously illuminate and obscure readings of moments of loss, reverence and collective transcendence.

SCAD presents "Y No Hay Remedio," a solo thesis exhibition by SCAD M.F.A. painting student Kalin Allen. Allen’s work focuses on a painting’s performative nature. Her intent is to examine the elements in which a relic holds multiple meanings, physically and metaphorically.

"Y No Hay Remedio" offers the possibility for paintings to depart and return to the stages of their creation, all while carrying the journey with them. The exhibition presents a selection of works that includes paintings, sculpture and text, and Allen explores the answers and methods behind the underlying and literal meanings the objects hold.

"Babel Revisited: History Repeats Itself" by artist Nicola López is a four-part, print-based installation created specifically for the "jewel box" exhibition spaces on the façade of the SCAD Museum of Art. Each space houses a different installation — a series of four architectural towers in various phases of construction or de-construction.

These silkscreen collages are presented as individual pieces in separate worlds that together make up what the artist calls "a string of parallel realities, sequential moments in history frozen in time and thus allowed to exist simultaneously." Making reference to the Tower of Babel, the pieces explore themes of visionary and utopian architecture and how progress, growth, decay and de-construction are inherent aspects of the process of building and creation itself.

A screening of López’s drawing- and print-based animation, "The Babel Cycle," from which "Babel Revisited" takes its inspiration, will be screened at the museum during deFINE ART.
