New exhibition at The Aperture GalleryThe Photographer’s Playspace features twenty photographers who have created new works in response to assignments from the Aperture book The Photographer’s Playbook: 307 Assignments and Ideas, a recently published compilation designed to inspire fresh perspectives in a photographer’s creative process.
Using assignments selected by Christopher McCall, director of Pier 24 Photography, the photographers produced works that both reflect a continuation of established practices and represent new directions in making pictures. The exhibition reveals each artist’s distinctive process and aesthetic, demonstrating how a simple prompt can inspire renewed engagement with the medium.

Hank Willis Thomas
Hank Willis Thomas uses photography, video, the web, and installations to examine how history and culture are framed, who is doing the framing, and how these factors affect our views of society. One of the most thoughtful, provocative young American artists of our time, Thomas (born 1976) has already had an impressive decade-long career that includes a 2008 monograph, a fellowship from the Tribeca Film Institute, and exhibitions and acquisitions at prestigious American, European, and African museums and galleries.
This exhibition—the artist’s largest museum show to date and his first in northeast Ohio—was inspired by the museum’s 2012 acquisition of six of his works, all of which will be on view. The exhibition will be on view simultaneously at the Cleveland Museum of Art from October 20, 2...
This exhibition will explore the breadth and global diversity of contemporary photographic portraiture since 2000, highlighting recent acquisitions to the museum's permanent collection.
About Face will include works by twenty-nine artists from the United States, England, Canada, France, Germany, Russia, Japan, Iran and South Africa.

Considered collectively, the works in About Fa...
Quant l'art et la pub ne font qu'un
Du 16 octobre au 22 décembre 2012 l'exposition Pubart met à l'honneur la commande publicitaire à la galerie Sophie Scheidecker. La publicité et l’art y seront réunis associant publicistes et artistes. Les relations passionnelles entre ces deux disciplines faites de rencontres et de déchirures ont permis de créer depuis les années 30 un catalogue d’images emblématiques. La publicité puise abondamment dans la création artistique quant aux artistes ils détournent ou s’approprient les images publicitaires et les codifie jusqu'à créer une frontière floue entre les deux disciplines.
Jusqu’à l’exposition des arts décoratifs de 1925, les affichistes et les dessin...
Photography and postcolonial perspectives in contemporary artUNFIXED is a multiplatform project that includes an exhibition, symposium, workshop, and a resulting publication. Bringing together an international group of artists and scholars with personal relations to migration, colonial history and cultural diaspora, UNFIXED explores the elusive ‘truth’ of photography and its relationship to ideas of ethnicity, culture and identity in contemporary art. Through their own practices and research, participating artists and theorists will reflect on photography’s representational abilities within a postcolonial context.
Photography’s attraction as a medium, its historical connection to the production and fixation of (cultural) identity, and the urgency of debates over identity, globalization, and culture, inspire UNFIXED. Via its various platforms, ...
