Part of Free Thursdays at the Akron Art Museum.

About Altered Landscapes:

As the Industrial Revolution spurred urban settlement, artists increasingly turned their attention to landscapes. Initially their work focused on pastoral views and topographically-accurate representation. More recently, artists worldwide have also used outdoor settings as sources for fanciful compositions, sharing personal perspectives or conveying social commentary. Altered Landscapes features artworks from the Akron Art Museum collection that take innovative approaches to this subject. Californian Wayne Thiebaud simplifies the Sacramento Valley vista in River and Slough while Peter Dean adds imaginative elements to his verdant surroundings in Doovekill Poppies. The industrial view Randall Tiedman invented in Limbus Patrum #7 vividly evokes the character of his native Cleveland. Also on display are photographs by Meridel Rubenstein and Barry Underwood, a sculpture by Mark Soppeland, a textile by Lilian Tyrell and other works in various media. 

Altered Landscapes is organized by the Akron Art Museum and supported by the Ohio Arts Council.

Gallery Talk: Liz Carney, Curator

May 7, 2015, 6:30 pm

Join Akron Art Museum Assistant Curator Liz Carney for a gallery talk about the imagined scenes and narratives brought to photographic life in the Staged exhibition.

Gallery Talk: Liz Carney, Curator

May 7, 2015, 6:30 pm

About Staged:

Just as theater directors orchestrate the stage, many photographers carefully construct scenes in front of their cameras. The resulting images are often as theatrical in their presentation as a Broadway play or a Hollywood film. Drawn primarily from the Akron Art Museum collection, Staged highlights the work of artists whose directorial involvement in the set-up of their photographs is essential to their practice. While some photographers utilize darkroom or digital manipulation to achieve their desired effects, others have planned every detail of their chosen environment prior to the snap of the shutter. Without using any digital technology throughout her arduous process, Sandy Skoglund captures dreamlike scenes with deeply saturated color palettes. To create Revenge of the Goldfish, Skoglund built a blue set in front of a large format camera, crafted and arranged 120 painted terracotta goldfish and directed live human models. The staged photographs of Skoglund, Cindy Sherman, Spencer Tunick, Carrie Mae Weems and others bring imagined scenes and narratives to life, often speaking to broader truths about the human experience.

Join the museum’s Reading Under the Roof Cloud’s book club in the Martha Stecher Reed Library for a discussion of bestselling author Marisa Silver’s Mary Coin. Silver takes Dorothea Lange’s Migrant Mother photograph as inspiration for a story of two women—one famous and one forgotten—and their remarkable chance encounter. Silver creates an extraordinary tale from a brief event in history and its repercussions throughout the decades that follow—a reminder that a great photograph captures the essence of a moment yet only scratches the surface of a life. Discussion will include a tour of documentary photographs on view in the museum.

Copies of Mary Coin are available for purchase in the Museum Shop.
