Elysium Gallery, Swansea, Wales, ESPY Photography Award Exhibition, August 18 — September 9.


Detroit poet and arts writer, Glen Mannisto, reviews the Sandwich Project exhibitions at Art Gallery of Windsor, including "Food, Feminism and Kitchen Culture, for Detroit Art Review, August 7.


The group exhibition, "Food, Feminism and Kitchen Culture," curated by Jaclyn Meloche, opens at the Art Gallery of Windsor on May 27 as part of its Spring/Summer program. Drawing from early feminist responses to the kitchen and Martha Rosler's Semiotics of the Kitchen — a video and performance piece in which the artist-turned-cooking show host demonstrates a culinary lexicon from A–Z —the exhibition asks how does the kitchen shape the contemporary gendered body? Albeit through a technological lens, a psychoanalytic lens or a cultural lens, the kitchen continues to offer insight into the dialogical relationship between place and identity. The exhibition includes works by Carly Erber, Anna Frlan, Cynthia Greig, Marilyn Minter, Christiane Pflug, Annie Pootoogook and Martha Rosler. The exhibition runs through October 1, 2017.

Based upon Petry's book (Thames and Hudson, 2013), the MOCA London touring exhibition, Nature Morte, "brings together historic still-life paintings and contemporary artworks that seek to use the language of the past for modern concerns. The show seeks to illustrate how leading artists of the 21st century are reinvigorating the still life, a genre previously synonymous with the sixteenth- and seventeenth-century Old Masters."

Pulse Miami, Fred Torres Collaborations, December 1-December 4.
 
For the Record: Andy Warhol's Polaroids and Snapshots, 1974-1986, Fine Arts Gallery at Mott Community College in Flint, MI. Curator.
Selected from the 162 images donated by the Andy Warhol Photographic Legacy Program, the exhibition explores Warhol's routine practice of surveillance and the extensive visual record he produced. It also promises to shed light on our own diaristic and voyeuristic impulses for creating a collective diary that exists in a virtual state of interconnected electronic memories on Facebook, Twitter, and countless blogs. Special thanks to Brian Liljeblad for his generous assistance, and to Mott for the invitation to work with such a compelling collection of images. I also am grateful to artist, Anton Perich, for the generous loan of his portrait of Warhol for the invitation. Image Credit: Anton Perich, Andy Warhol with Polaroid Camera, 1972.

Pulse Los Angeles, Fred Torres Collaborations September 30 - October 3.
 
The University of Michigan's Slusser Gallery, Ann Arbor, MI. Nothing to Say curated by Kathleen McShane. The exhibition is concerned with examining nothingness - quiet, less is more, what is there and not there, and nonsense. The title comes from John Cage who commented, "I have nothing to say, and I'm saying it" when referring to his 4 minutes and 33 seconds of silence performance. The exhibition suggests that "nothing" can actually evoke "everything," or at least an unexpected fullness (as in Cage's silence). Lynne Avadenka, Jim Cogswell, Iris Eichenberg, Cynthia Greig, Paul Kotula, Michael Krueger, Melanie Manos, Stephen Prina, Jon Swindler and Cody VanderKaay. Through October 7.

Several photographs from my New Eden installation are featured in Susan Shifrin's beautiful book Re-Framing the Representations of Women, published in 2008 by Ashgate Publishing in the UK.
The book's theme developed from a group exhibition Shifrin curated in 2004 for The Library Company in Philadelphia and the Rosenbach Museum and Library at Bryn Mawr College, Picturing Women: Historical Works and Contemporary Responses.
The book "makes a substantial methodological contribution to the analysis of gender discourse and visuality. It offers new and stimulating scholarship that confronts historical patterns of representation that have defined what women were and are seen to be, and presents new contexts for unveiling what art historian Linda Nochlin has called the 'mixed messages' of representations of women." Christina Penn-Goetsch of Cornell College writes a thoughtful review of the book in the SECAC Review, Vol. XLI, No. 5 2009.
