Catherine Opie: 700 Nimes Road

October 1st, 2016 - January 8th, 2017

Catherine Opie: 700 Nimes Road presents recent work by Los Angeles–based artist Catherine Opie, one of the essential figures in contemporary photography. Taken over the course of six months at the Bel Air, California, residence of Elizabeth Taylor (1932–2011), the photographs in the exhibition are selected from two series, Closets and Jewels and 700 Nimes Road.

Inspired by William Eggleston’s images of Elvis Presley’s Memphis estate, Graceland, Opie creates a portrait of Taylor from her personal space and mementos. Opie photographs rooms, closets, shoes, clothing, and jewelry that intimately depict the life of screen star and cultural icon Elizabeth Taylor, compiling an indirect portrait of a life defined by wealth and fame.

With an investigative eye, Opie documents the grandeur and minute details of the home in a range of visual scales. Scrutinizing without revealing the complete picture, objects accumulate, rooms become landscapes, and clothing is transformed into fields of color and texture. Opie’s lens portrays Taylor’s life experience and eccentricity as an illusory subject, one that cannot be specifically designated or precisely described. In the artist’s words, the project is not about the relationship to celebrity, but about “the relationship to what is human.”

Catherine Opie: 700 Nimes Road is organized by The Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles. Presentation at the George Eastman Museum is made possible in part by the Rubens Family Foundation, with additional support from St. John's.

Artist's Talk: Catherine Opie

October 5th, 2016

World-renowned artist Catherine Opie will speak in conjunction with her exhibition Catherine Opie: 700 Nimes Road. Her work gained attention in the mid-1990s when her photograph Self-Portrait/Pervert, 1994, was exhibited at the Whitney Museum of Art. Since then, she has been revered for her ability to photograph the intimacy of community, as it is produced through place, symbols, events, and self-identification.

Her photographs record American diversity with both portraits and landscapes. Her unique form of social documentary photography has led her to create work about subjects ranging from lesbian families and San Francisco’s S&M community to high school football players and surfers. Her landscape work has addressed strip malls and freeway junctions in Los Angeles, as well as formal architectural studies in Chicago and New York.

Her most recent body of work, Portraits and Landscapes, combines the two genres, drawing upon art historical references such as old master paintings. Free to members; included with museum admission. Exhibitions open until 8 p.m.

CITY OF PHOTOS: Special Screening and Discussion with Filmmaker

October 11th, 2016

City of Photos explores the little-known ethos of neighborhood photo studios in Indian cities, discovering entire imaginary worlds in the smallest of spaces. Tiny, shabby studios that appear stuck in a time warp turn out to be places throbbing with energy. As full of surprises as the people who frequent these studios are the backdrops they enjoy posing against and the props they choose. These afford fascinating glimpses into individual fantasies and popular tastes. Yet, beneath the fun and games runs an undercurrent of foreboding.

Not everyone enjoys being photographed; not every backdrop is beautiful; not all photos are taken on happy occasions. The cities in which these stories unfold themselves become backdrops, their gritty urban reality a counterpoint to the photo palaces. Desires, memories, and stories, all so deeply linked to the photographic experience, come together as part of a personal journey into the city of photos. Discussion with filmmaker Nishtha Jain will follow the screening.

A Matter of Memory: Photography as Object in the Digital Age

October 22nd, 2016 - January 29th, 2017

With the convenience and ubiquity of computers and smartphones, the majority of photographic images are being recorded digitally rather than on film. As this transformation has broadened access to photographic images—both in making and in viewing—in many contexts it has also obviated the need for photographic prints.

Snapshooters, photojournalists, and commercial photographers rarely produce material objects as the final step in their process. As a consequence, photographs in the form of image-bearing sheets of paper are scarce outside of the art world. Because personal and collective memories are so inextricably intertwined with photographs—the result of the medium’s progressive saturation of everyday life for the past century and a half—this revolutionary change in the production and dissemination of photographic images is altering society’s relationship to memory.

In the midst of this change, many contemporary photographers are making work that addresses, either directly or obliquely, the potential consequences of the medium’s metamorphosis. Some artists dig deep into photographic materials as though searching for the locus of memory, while others incorporate found snapshots into their work as virtual talismans of recollection. Both kinds of work highlight the presence of the photographic object and function as self-conscious meditations on photography’s ongoing reorganization of our mental and physical landscape.

A Matter of Memory: Photography as Object in the Digital Age is generously sponsored by Deborah Ronnen and Sherman Levey.

Panel Discussion: Matter and Memory in the Digital Age

October 22nd, 2016

James Welling, who has been exploring and experimenting with photographic ideas and materials since the 1970s, is the anchor panelist. His co-panelists will be Marco Breuer and Diane Meyer. Breuer burns, scrapes, sands, scratches, and otherwise activates photographic materials, as though searching for the physical connection between matter and memory. Meyer also examines the enigmatic power of photographs as material objects, by embroidering her own snapshots.

Together, in a conversation moderated by exhibition curator Lisa Hostetler, Welling, Breuer, and Meyer will discuss how the transition from analog to digital photographic technologies is changing the landscape of memory. Following the panel discussion, join artist Phil Chang in the galleries to watch as he replaces his unfixed prints with new ones that will fade in a matter of hours.

The Best of Seneca West Wine Tour

October 22nd, 2016

The western shores of Seneca Lake are home to some of the most well-respected wine-makers in the Finger Lakes. On this tour, you will learn their stories and taste the outcome of their commitment and passion to their craft. Our first stop is Kemmeter Winery, the boutique winery of Johannes Rienhardt. Johannes comes from a wine-making family in Germany that has been making wines since the mid 15th century. He left Germany, and moved to the Finger Lakes to express his own vision of fine wine making.

Enjoy an intimate experience with Johannes as he shares with you the progress of his young vineyard, followed by a wine-tasting designed to share with you the personality of the fruit in its purest form. Next, get ready to never think about wieners and burgers the same way again. The FLX Wienery is the special eatery project of couple Christopher Bates and Isabel Bogadtke. Christopher is a Master Sommelier and Isabel was named by Mobil Travel Guide as offering the Best Service in the World. Today, their collaborative energies go into creating Wienery and Burger “Art” bringing together flavors and textures from locally-sourced ingredients that unveil their creations.

From their house-made sausages and freshly ground burgers to their hand-cut fries and chips, get ready for what has been called “arguably the best hot dog stand in the world.” Lunch is paired with selected craft beers from around the globe. After lunch, we make our way up the road to Hermann J. Wiemer Vineyards, where we will enjoy a private tasting in the winery. Wiemer is considered one of the top Riesling producers in the United States, and was recognized by Wine & Spirits Magazine as one of the top 100 American wineries for 2014. We will explore exquisite white varietals followed by examples of vineyard variations in their Cabernet Franc.

Our final stop of the day is Red Tail Ridge Winery. Red Tail Ridge is recognized by the New York Times, Wine Spectator and Wine Enthusiast as one of the best producers in the region. Winemaker Nancy Irelan has made a name in the region for exploring grape varieties not seen anywhere else in the region, like the German Dornfelder and the Italian Teroldego in addition to more classic Finger Lakes varietals. Enjoy a private tasting featuring their array of unique wines as the perfect ending to a great day.

Price: $145.00 per person. This price includes the transportation, tasting fees, added services, lunch, and special food pairings. This price is associated with a 5 person total guest count. Alternate pricing and touring options are available for tours that do not meet this minimum.

Bow Making - Primitive Pursuits Workshop

October 23rd, 2016

We will take bulky pieces of wood and work following the grain to transform them into sleek, efficient hunting tools. Though the staves we use will be pre-harvested, we will learn about tree identification, harvesting, and processing in the context of the bowyer. All aspects of bow making will be covered, and you will leave on Sunday with a finished hunting bow.

The self-bow is one of the most fascinating pieces of primitive technology, in that if shaped the right way a single piece of wood can store enough energy to shoot an arrow deadly enough to take down large game. Through working with your stave you will connect with the wood, the forest, and the ancient skill of bow making that is in all of our shared ancestry. Not only will you walk away with a finished bow, you will have the tools to make more bows on your own.

FEE: $225 Friday 5:00PM - 8:00PM Saturday 9:00AM - 4:00PM Sunday 9:00AM - 4:00PM (Fee includes all materials 15 Students maximum)
