"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.

13th Colony Sound returns to the Tybee Post Theater to present a musical comedy “On The Road Again!”

Summer has returned and the merry voices of harmony are once again packing up for a cross country tour of adventure and sightseeing - singing all the way, of course. Planning for a trip of this nature is a challenging task when about 25 guys and gals chip in with their strong suggestions of where to go and how to get there.

Expressed in the songs of Stephen Foster, Johnny Mercer, Fred Loewe, Gene Pitney, Elvis, Randy Newman, Willie Nelson and others, the joys and drawbacks of travel are sung in a harmonious barbershop style by ladies and gentlemen of 13th Colony Sound Chorus and its Quartets.

Post patrons will remember this group’s amazing sold-out show, “All About Savannah” last summer.

Performance proceeds will benefit the Fresh Air Home of Tybee Island. Keep The Whole World Singing!

Everyone around here remembers those John Travolta sightings around the  Savannah Historic District last spring and summer. Well, his Savannah-filmed noir thriller, The Poison Rose,” finally hits the big screen and we’re showing it over the three-day weekend.

John Travolta is Carson Phillips, an ex-football star turned PI, who’s got a soft spot for a lady in distress. Like the classic film noir tales spun by the masters, he takes on a routine missing person case which slowly reveals itself to be a complex interwoven web of crimes, suspects and dead bodies. When he discovers his long-lost daughter is the number one suspect, he races a ticking clock to save her, solve the murders, and uncover the town’s dirty secrets.

The film also stars Morgan Freeman and Brendan Fraser. Rated R.

Well, Bailey is back in this new nostalgic melodrama, now as an aging St. Bernard known as Buddy, who lives on an idyllic Michigan farm with his beloved owner Ethan (Dennis Quaid), Ethan’s wife Hannah (Marg Helgenberger), and CJ — Ethan’s young granddaughter.

When CJ’s mother decides to take her away, Bailey gets reincarnated into a puppy and embarks on a lifelong quest to watch over the girl. Thus begins Bailey’s adventure through multiple lives filled with love, friendship and devotion as he, CJ  and CJ’s best friend Trent experience joy and heartbreak, music and laughter, and few really good belly rubs.

Price: $10 General, Free for SCAD student/faculty/staff

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.

Where: SCAD Museum of Art

Price: $10 General, Free for SCAD student/faculty/staff

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.

"Then I knew I was alone — inside this pulsing glowing cathedral. The shifts had meaning! The structure was elegant, labyrinthine yet organic. The colours altered seeming at will. As I breathed, I breathed; as it breathed, I breathed. Could it be my will? I was somehow affecting this structure and it, affecting me!"

Quote credit: Forsythe, Kathleen. "Cathedrals in the Mind: The Architecture of Metaphor in Understanding Learning," in "Cybernetics and Systems '86," Robert Trappl, editor. D. Reidel Publishing Company, 1986. P. 286

"Cathedral," artist Gonzalo Lebrija presents a new body of work in dialogue with past projects, offering the visitor a generous range of his projects from 2003 to the present. Through his multifaceted artistic practice, Lebrija has explored a range of existential subjects like time, death and perception, among others. Often addressing the rise of industrial capitalism and its consequences, Lebrija´s projects materialize in many mediums like film, sculpture, installation, drawing, painting and photography, making his artistic practice flexible and unexpected.

The exhibition title summons the architectural format of the cathedral — not for its religious connotations but for its potential as metaphor — focusing on the capacity of formal elements of architecture like scale, light and space, and their relationship with experiences with the sublime or aesthetic dimensions.

Lebrija's most recent series that's part of this exhibition is titled "Veladuras nocturnas [Night Glazings]", and features a collection of large-scale paintings depicting geometric patterns over a dark background. In the way that the old masters used progressive glazes of color to achieve form and depth, Lebrija utilizes the same method but with iridescent paint to create a dynamic experience. The overlapping areas create subtle light registers in which the movement of the viewer directly affects them, creating a commentary on the refraction of light and its perception — an ongoing interest of the artist. Other projects, playfully, even ironically, explore notions that are seemingly too large to grasp. One of the exhibition's most notable installations "The Eternal Flame" consists of a room with a single plinth where a replica of a common, cheap lighter, is the source of a minuscule flame, that remains lit for the duration of the show.

The spaces created by the architecture of the exhibition in dialogue with the presented constellation of artworks has been conceived to provoke a particular state of contemplation. This can be trailed as a reference to the "Arquitectura emocional" or Emotional Architecture. A term famously discussed by Pritzker Architecture Prize winner Luis Barragán, as an experiential notion of space where the intentional use of architectural elements sparked emotions and aesthetic experiences. Aside from being a source of inspiration for Lebrija, Barragán's views of space, light and color both emerge from and actively respond to the conception of spaces of adoration. Transported into a secular space, the exhibition "Cathedral" offers both a reading of an artist’s career, as well as a deconstructive gaze into a widespread architectural format.

Price: $10 General, Free for SCAD student/faculty/staff

"Think Twice," is an exhibition by artists Carla Fernández and Pedro Reyes which features a metal pavilion designed by the artists as the container of their artistic practices, revealing their proximity and cross pollination. The recipients of this year’s Design Miami Design Visionary Award, Fernández's and Reyes' artwork brilliantly synthesizes a spectrum of influences — from Brutalism to Mexican indigenous culture to social progressive values — into a remarkable body of work. Reinterpreted for the André Leon Talley Gallery at the SCAD Museum of Art, "Think Twice" presents Reyes’ design and socially oriented projects, as well as a selection of Fernández’s recent pieces, with videos and a specially commissioned floral intervention by Flores Cosmos.

Fernández has worked over the past decades to create an eponymous fashion-forward, internationally acclaimed clothing brand that combines an equal interest in ethics and aesthetics. The brand’s politically aware design practice takes into consideration each of the design process conditions, as well as philosophy of creation rooted in the ethics of work, environmental issues and cultural preservation from indigenous processes. The brand has developed a deep, complex network of collaborators in different regions of Mexico, creating workshops and coalitions with which their textile traditions are fostered and propagated within the international platform of contemporary fashion. 

On his side, Reyes’ multidisciplinary works integrate elements of theater, psychology and activism, in forms such as site-specific installations, musical recitals, conferences, therapy sessions and games, among others. Reyes is interested in exploring the complexities of modernism and technology development in relation to aesthetics and the social sphere. Some of his most emblematic projects repurpose objects as he investigates issues of citizenship and social betterment. The boundaries of Reyes' artistic career are constantly expanding as he integrates new philosophies. An overarching use of humor permeates his oeuvre, inviting diverse audiences to consider creativity and communication as tools for transformation.

As life partners, Fernández and Reyes are both interested in sparking social transformation through art, contesting the extenuating living and working conditions in late capitalism. Their work reveals a trust in the power of culture as a site for social change and in the domestic transmission of knowledge as part of political resistance. Together they have created a brutalist home and studio in the heart of Mexico City, which has become a laboratory for creation and the sharing of ideas, blurring the common perceptions about the limits between art and life.

As part of this exhibition and SCAD deFINE ART programming, Reyes will present his most recent marionette theater play titled "Manufacturing Mischief," on view 5 p.m. Wednesday, Feb. 27, 2019. Fernández will present a pop-up shop at SCAD FASH Museum of Fashion + Film in Atlanta, open to the public on Feb. 28 and 29 as well as March 1.

Where: SCAD Museum of Art

Price: $10 General, Free for SCAD student/faculty/staff

"City of the Sun," exhibited at the SCAD Museum of Art, is a select reading of artist Lee Bul's painting and sculpture from the past nine years. Through a multitude of material and media, including painting, performance, sculpture, video and installation, the artist engages with themes related to the historic and cultural endeavor for perfection and its subsequent failures.

The exhibition presents Bul's explorations of the modernization of the 20th century, which are directly tied to her childhood experiences living through a shift in South Korean society. She grew up in a leftist dissident household in a militarized South Korean town in the 1960s during a period of restriction, surveillance and repression. In this environment, Bul's family was subject to police searches of their home.

Her experiences of the modernization of the country contributed to the development of an artistic practice that engages with the relationship between humans and technology, progress, architecture and larger society. Her early radical artwork employed her own body in public performances that challenged societal attitudes toward women. From these early pieces, Bul's more recent work looks to architecture and human attempts at perfection. The artist draws inspiration from utopian principles and futuristic vision of architects like Bruno Taut. Through her meticulously constructed sculptures and paintings, she exposes society's failed efforts at achieving the ideal.

"City of the Sun" is part of SCAD deFINE ART 2019, held Feb. 26–28 at university locations in Atlanta and Savannah, Georgia.

In "Unyukelo" Nicholas Hlobo responds to historic narratives of the American South to create a poetic and moving installation comprised of large two-dimensional and sculptural works for the SCAD Museum of Art. Inspired by the evocative name of the city of Savannah — with echoes of the rolling fields of grass of the African savanna — Hlobo conceived a project rooted in the search for liberation and escape.

Taking the reference of tumbleweed as a metaphor, Hlobo's new artwork explores the materiality of copper piping, as both sculptural and linear drawing in space. Small, recognizable objects are attached to larger entangled shapes, which shift the original function and meaning to a place outside of immediate comprehension.

The artist's interest in language and the deliberate choice in using his mother tongue, isiXhosa, in titling his work connects to an ongoing interest in skillfully guiding viewers on a journey, letting understanding and reading of his work slip in and out of translation and legibility. The title of the exhibition "Unyukelo" translates directly as "The Ladder" in isiXhosa, which also means ascension. For Hlobo, the connotation is not so much about religion, but more broadly refers to a change in state of consciousness. The artist also articulates an interest in the process of getting lost as a way toward a deeper understanding of one’s environment and place within it. This becomes an apt metaphor of both the process in the artist’s studio while making, as well as a way of navigating and experiencing his installation.

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