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.

Portrait of the Artist at the Jepson Center
Aug

to Nov 24

Portrait of the Artist at the Jepson Center

This exhibition presents photographic portraits of artists, entertainers, and celebrities from Telfair Museums’ permanent collection. Each of the subjects are virtuosos in their fields: painting, photography, writing, acting, singing, or sports. Dating from the early 20th century to the present day, these portraits vary broadly in presentation of the sitter, showing how the photographers utilized the medium to reinforce or subvert the subjects’ self-image. Many of the photographs fit the following categorizations: carefully staged presentations meant to convey an attitude or profession; posed yet revealing photographs that unmask the sitter’s personality; or candid shots that allow the viewer access into an otherwise unattainable life. Although the photographs show famous faces, they ultimately underscore a common human desire—the yearning to be seen and understood.

Where: SCAD Museum of Art

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.

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