Opening Reception |
This year's Alternative Processes Competition presents the winning images of some 40 photographers from across the United States. The hundreds of images that were submitted for this competition represent a wide range of alternative methods that can include beeswax paper negative, cyanotype, Van Dyke Brown, platinum/palladium, gum dichromate, gold toned salt print, tintype, and ziatype. The Next Phase: iPhone Photographs by November guest exhibitor Dan Burkholder will be shown in the upstairs gallery. Burkholder says, "Photographing and stylizing images with the iPhone is one of the purest photographic phenomenon I've experienced during more than four decades of using a camera. With no gap between the moment of capture and time of enhancement, I find my emotional reaction to the subject becomes an integral part of the final image, in a way that's much more honest and fluid than waiting to return to the computer or darkroom."

Lecture |
Okwui Enwezor delivers this lecture. Far more than for any other part of his oeuvre, Brazilian artist Cildo Meireles has become known for his project Insertions into Ideological Circuits from the early 1970s. In order to avoid censorship, Meireles printed images and messages onto various consumer items (such as recyclable Coca-Cola bottles) and bank notes already in wide circulation. Enwezor analyzes this body of work, maintaining that Meireles' Insertions — like Jorge Luis Borges' forking paths — operate at the gap between material flows, ideological structures, and nodes of value (symbolic, social, economic, political). The artist's "insertions" are as much cuts inscribed on as they are breaks struck into formal structures of power, broadcast systems, and instruments of public transmission.

Filmmakers who create social-issue documentaries share with activist organizations a commitment to worldwide social justice and utilize media to expose global concerns to audiences in increasingly broad ways. With social networking, mobile phones, and digital media in a variety of formats, there are more opportunities to educate others and affect change than ever before. A panel comprised of filmmakers and representatives from social issue non-profits will discuss the use of new and old technologies to engage the important issues of our time with the global community. Panelists include Julia Bacha, an award-winning filmmaker who most recently directed and produced Budrus, a film about a Palestinian village’s nonviolent struggle, and also co-wrote and edited Jehane Noujaim’s critically acclaimed documentary Control Room; and director/producer Kim A. Snyder, an award-winning documentary filmmaker whose most recent film, Welcome To Shelbyville, is recipient of a Gucci-Tribeca Documentary Fund grant, which will air on PBS's Independent Lens in early 2011. The panel is moderated by producer/director Katy Chevigny from Arts Engine.
