Where: Jepson Center

Price: Adult $20

The exhibition will feature approximately 40 signature works made between 1959–2018, alongside ephemera such as photographs, letters, periodicals, and journals. The retrospective will concentrate on how Jackson’s consistent references to love and relationships (both human and animal), the human body, geography, history, and music can all be traced to the natural world — informed by an upbringing in the Yukon Territory, significant time spent in Idyllwild, CA, and the past two decades in coastal Georgia.

Additionally, this exhibition importantly connects Jackson’s oeuvre and history to peer artists and thinkers: in Los Angeles and the West Coast during the 1960s–80s including the seminal Gallery 32 she founded and its artistic circle; the theatre communities in California, New Haven, CT, New York, NY, and Philadelphia, PA in the 1990s; and the Savannah, GA art community over the past two decades.

"Photography is part of my life – it completes the circle between my artistic and professional restlessness." Karl Lagerfeld

SCAD Museum of Art presents an exhibition of photography by renowned designer and creative director Karl Lagerfeld. The exhibition selects 13 large-scale prints from the museum’s permanent collection. The images are chosen from two bodies of work — "Menagerie de Verre" and the "Yves Klein" series.

In these photographs, Lagerfeld blends artistic and literary tropes, haute couture and narrative. In the "Yves Klein" series, models are adorned with an intense blue, a nod to International Klein Blue. This color is an iconic, specific blue tone named and created by French artist Yves Klein after his discovery of suspending ultramarine in resin to retain its intensity. The "Menagerie de Verre" series positions models in languid poses in mirrored dance studios, dressed in haute couture reminiscent of ballet costumes. The series’ English title "The Glass Menagerie" may reference Tennessee William’s famed play, or the mirrored surfaces reflecting the poses of the models.

This exhibition is part of SCAD deFINE ART 2019, held Feb. 26–28 at university locations in Atlanta and Savannah, Georgia.

The SCAD Museum of Art presents "Guest Room," the first museum exhibition in the U.S. by artist Alex Gardner. In recent years, Gardner has gained widespread attention for his bold painting style. This exhibition presents a selection of Gardner’s most recent work, along with new pieces commissioned for SCAD deFINE ART.

Combining a distilled aesthetic sense, a potent narrative capacity and an assortment of emotional landscapes, Gardner’s paintings present eloquent compositions that speak beyond their two-dimensional condition. His style has been often associated with Mannerism, a 16th-century, post-High Renaissance art movement that privileged gesture over representation, and indulged a particular stylization of figure over the technical obsession of the great masters of High Renaissance. In that sense, Gardner has developed a vocabulary of elements including color tones, seemingly architectural spaces, vegetation and a series of genderless, featureless dark figures. Together, these elements are in continuous movement, affecting each other and ultimately creating cryptic narratives — which perhaps say more about who is reading them and how. Inasmuch as Gardner’s work is in clear dialogue with the history of human representation in art, it is also connotative of current conflicts about race, gender, desire and the technological mediation of the body. In addition, the titles of Gardner’s works suggest familiar places, or what appear to be character identities, boosting the hazy environment and creating new layers of questions in the already ciphered scenes.

For "Guest Room, " Gardner has thought about the specificity of Gallery 109 at the SCAD Museum of Art and the way one navigates the space. With this in mind, each of the canvases becomes a portal or, in Gardner's words, a "hotel room you are opening, a vignette of an interpersonal interaction, a private moment you are glimpsing." His acknowledgment of the spectator is a critical point of the show. It opens questions about the negotiation between the strange and the familiar, and about the shared feelings within intimacy and hosting. It also suggests an interesting relationship, even an interchangeability, between figure and space. The spaces Gardner creates are close to what French philosopher Michel Foucault described as "heterotopias," or places that are elsewhere and that can represent several incompatible sites and times at once. For Foucault, these slices of time break traditional notions of space and time. That is precisely what Gardner’s paintings allow: intimate gestures of communication and proximity, frozen in front of us, in an undetermined space.

"Guest Room" offers a generous introduction to Gardner’s lexicon, and an opportunity for the audience to encounter a unique, expressive painting style. In a time where we are constantly reminded about our differences, Gardner’s ability to construct narratives outside the constricting limits of identity inspires broader forms of perception of what is otherwise rigid and unmovable.

SCAD Museum of Art presents the first museum exhibition of performance installation artists Ania Catherine and Dejha Ti in a new commission that will foreground their collaborative practice. In their work, the artists bring together environments, bodies and creative technology to design immersive experiences that draw audiences into their idiosyncratic worlds.

"On View" grapples with and comments on the complicated relationship between art, images and consumerist culture. The experience of art has been altered by audience’s incessant image-making and social media’s co-optation of installation art, with some attending not to see what is on view, but instead to see themselves on view. The performance installation incorporates this phenomenon into the creation of the work itself — "On View" is intentionally incomplete without audience-as-subject. The multilayer engagement incorporates an audience-reactive kinetic environment and a series of performances in the space for the duration of the exhibition.

Drawing from their experience working in various public environments, the artists explore our complex relationships with technology, social media and representation.

SCAD Museum of Art presents the first museum exhibition by New York-based artist Azikiwe Mohammed. His multidisciplinary practice — which merges painting, photography, sculpture, performance and found ephemera — prioritizes the experiences, needs and subjectivity of people of color in America. His primary concern is the foregrounding of these narratives, potential futures and histories, and creating the physical spaces for such to thrive in.

An ongoing part of the artist's practice orbits around New Davonhaime, a city conceived of by Mohammed that provides a look at a sustainable version of a self-dictated future for black/African-American residents of this country, as well as being a site of interventions and actions in both formal and non-traditional exhibition spaces. Its name is derived from a linguistic mashup of the five American cities with the highest density of African-American residents in the U.S. (New Orleans, Louisiana; Detroit, Michigan; Jackson, Mississippi; Birmingham, Alabama; and Savannah, Georgia), and is a conceptual departure point for much of the artist's recent work.

New Davonhaime is also "home" to Jimmy, the artist's alter ego and the proprietor of Jimmy's Thrift of New Davonhaime, takes the form of an installation in the gallery. Jimmy is both the keeper of New Davonhaime's history and the stories imbedded in the objects on display in his shop, and he also functions as a griot, or traveling poet/storyteller that maintains oral histories. During the opening week of the exhibition, Jimmy will be present in the museum to engage with visitors.

"Blackest Night: A Survey in Blackness" draws from Mohammed's extensive travels throughout the U.S., which he has used largely as research trips, gathering information to create new objects while also gathering other objects from the towns that make up New Davonhaime. Also on view is a new series of photographic portraits. The exhibition will include a number of new works, including a large-scale neon sculpture.

This exhibition is part of SCAD deFINE ART 2019, held Feb. 26–28 at university locations in Atlanta and Savannah, Georgia.
