Sitter is reviewed
March 11, 2015

Columbus Alive reviewed Sitter again…

“Sitter, the current exhibition in CCAD’s Canzani Center Gallery, is an astounding display of portraiture. If you haven’t seen “Sitter,” I recommend it with the utmost urgency as it closes March 25.”

Jesse TiggesThe Columbus Dispatch reviewed Sitter…

“Go see the show, bound to be one of the best of the year, but don’t take the kids. The images not suitable for children are among the ones you’ll spend the most time contemplating.”

As Sitter continues its acclaimed run in the Canzani Center Gallery through March 26th, CCAD is pleased to welcome Kelli Connell and Doug Ischar for a conversation on queer identity politics in contemporary photography in the Canzani Auditorium on March 9, at 5 pm.

Kelli Connell’s work has been widely received and included in numerous solo and group exhibitions. Her work is in the collections of The Metropolitan Museum of Art, Los Angeles County Museum of Art, Columbus Museum of Art, Museum of Fine Arts Houston, Museum of Contemporary Photography, Microsoft, Haggerty Museum of Art, Philadelphia Museum of Art and The Dallas Museum of Art. Connell’s first full length monograph entitled Kelli Connell: Double Life was released by DECODE Books in August, 2011. Other publications include MP3: Midwest Photographersʼ Publication Project (Aperture: New York and Museum of Contemporary Photography: Chicago, 2006), Vitamin Ph: New Perspectives in Photography (Phaidon Press: London, 2006), Photo Art: The New World of Photography (Aperture: New York, 2008), and Auto Focus: The Self-Portrait in Contemporary Photography (The Monacelli Press: New York, 2010). Her work has been showcased in Adbusters, American Photo Magazine, Art in America, ARTnews, Camerawork: A Journal of Photographic Arts, DIVA Magazine, EXIT Express, Foam Magazine, Gente di Fotografia, Girls Like Us, The New York Blade, and The New York Times. Connell’s work is represented by Catherine Edelman Gallery in Chicago and Paul Kopeikin Gallery in Los Angeles.
Kelli Connell lives in Chicago and teaches photography at Columbia College Chicago.

Since the early 1990s, Doug Ischar’s work has focused on the potentials of video and sound in ever more distilled manifestations. Following large multi-media installations such as Orderly (1994) and Wake (1996) Ischar turned to more minimal arrangements. His 1997 work for InSite (San Diego/Tijuana) used a high school basketball court as local for a multimedia meditation of adolescent homosexual desire. His 2001 work ground uses 24 channels of sound to replicate the sound of a gallery floor being swept. His 2005 public installation, Water Music, explores the relationship between personal and artistic histories of the Pacific Rim cultures, in which Ischar lived as a child. Ischar has taught extensively in Scandinavia as a visiting professor (Göteborg,Malmö) and was a visiting artist at IASPIS (Stockholm) in spring 2001. He is an Associate Professor of Photography at the University of Illinois at Chicago.

Just in case you missed it! Here is the video of Dawoud Bey‘s talk at CCAD!

Dawoud Bey

Visiting Scholar: Dawoud Bey
Friday / February 27th / 6:30 pm
Canzani Auditorium

As Sitter continues its acclaimed run in the Canzani Center Gallery through March 26th, CCAD is pleased to welcome Dawoud Bey to the Canzani Auditorium on Friday, February 27th, 6:30 pm.

For over thirty years Dawoud Bey’s work has been concerned with the making of resonant representations of peoples within marginalized communities that seek to position those subjects within their own active social space and histories as well as the larger historical conversation about issues of representation.

While using the portrait as a site of social narrative, individual psychological and emotion resonance, historical reimagining, and individual agency, Bey’s work continually raises the questions of who is represented or not within our society, and how. His recent Birmingham Project evokes the tragic events of September 15, 1963 when four black girls and two boys were killed in Birmingham, AL in acts of racist violence. These diptych portraits depict young black children who are the ages of the young people killed and women and men the ages they would have been fifty years later. A video work 9.15.63 evokes the quiet Sunday morning turned horrifically tragic.

Dawoud Bey began his career as an artist in 1975 with a series of photographs, “Harlem, USA,” that were later exhibited in his first one-person exhibition at the Studio Museum in Harlem in 1979. He has since had numerous exhibitions worldwide, at such institutions as the Addison Gallery of American Art, the Art Institute of Chicago, the Brooklyn Museum, the Detroit Institute of Arts, the Fogg Art Museum at Harvard University, the High Museum of Art, the Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago, the Museum of Contemporary Photography, the Museum of Modern Art, NY, the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, the Studio Museum in Harlem, the Whitney Museum of American Art, and other museums worldwide.

His many museum-based projects have been focused on making those institutional spaces more accessible to the communities in which they are situated. He has been particularly concerned with making those spaces more accessible to young people through his participatory projects. These projects have been completed with a wide range of institutions, including the Addison Gallery of American Art, Birmingham Museum of Art, Detroit Institute of Arts, Walker Art Center, Wadsworth Atheneum, Wexner Center for the Arts, and the National Portrait Gallery, London among many others. His curatorial projects have included a number of exhibitions curated for such institutions as the Addison Gallery of American Art, the Art Institute of Chicago, DePaul Art Museum, Hyde Park Art Center, Museum of Contemporary Photography, the Walters Art Museum, and the Weatherspoon Art Museum.

Bey’s work is included in numerous publication, and is the subject of several monographs and publications, including Class Pictures (Aperture, 2007), Harlem, USA (Yale University Press, 2012), Picturing People Renaissance Society at the University of Chicago, 2012), and Dawoud Bey: The Birmingham Project (Birmingham Museum of Art, 2013). Bey is the recipient of fellowships from the John Simon Guggenheim Memorial Foundation and the National Endowment for the Arts among others honors.

Dawoud Bey holds a Master of Fine Arts degree from Yale University School of Art, and is currently Professor of Art and a Distinguished College Artist at Columbia College Chicago, where he has taught since 1998. He is represented by Mary Boone Gallery, New York, Rena Bransten Gallery, San Francisco, and Stephen Daiter Gallery, Chicago.
