"Cinemascapes are a hybrid between autobiography and fiction, with Hobson himself always in the star role. They are at times, haunting and scandalous, other times inspiring, but always come across as closely personal. Reflective of his 30 years of experiences, emotions, and challenges throughout his life, Hobson creates cinemascapes that not only viscerally and visually grab the conscious mind, but also linger in the viewer's imagination and memory."— Aaron Hobson

Emi Anrakuji: Ipy Emi Anrakuji: Ipy
"In IPY, Anrakuji represents herself as an alchemist of images and a catalyst for daydreams and desires. The vignettes of her self-portraits blur the boundaries between documentary and staged photography.... A prolific producer of images, Anrakuji often arranges her work as handmade books, one of which serves as the catalyst for IPY....Combinations of various elements- eroticism, humor, cruelty, strange peacefulness, sharpness, and magical tricks - characterize her work."—the publisher

Jessica Todd Harper: Interior Exposure Jessica Todd Harper: Interior Exposure

Winner of NY Photo Festival in the category of Personal/Fine Art Single Image.

"Pennsylvania-based photographer Jessica Todd Harper says of her technically well considered, quotidian portraits and interiors,"I show people in familiar settings, in their homes the way the Renaissance artists Dürer, Van Eyck and Anguissola examined simple people, their identities and existences in their private activities rather than in the happenings or objects around them."—the publisher READ MORE

Sylvia Plachy: Out of the Corner of My Eye Sylvia Plachy: Out of the Corner of My Eye
"Plachy's poetic and visually stunning work brilliantly combines memoir and wry observation in this major retrospective collection of images ranging over forty years. Capturing the curiousness of everyday events, Plachy's pictures combine personal narrative with public display, and-through the immediacy of her experience-encapsulate the timelessness of metaphor and dream."—the publisher

Santa Fe Art Institute lecture and workshop with Andrea Robbins & Max Becher

The Santa Fe Art Institute is proud to present a lecture and workshop with the visual artists Andrea Robbins and Max Becher.

Robbins & Becher are part of the Santa Fe Art Institute's 2008 curated lecture season "Outsider: Tourism, Migration and Exile." They, along with 22 other artists and creative thinkers from around the world, will join SFAI to explore the different movements of people, culture and ideas and what role art can and should play.

The primary focus of Robbins & Becher's work is, what they call, the transportation of place — situations in which one limited or isolated place strongly resembles another distant one. Everywhere, not only in the new world, such situations are accumulating and accepted as genuine locales. Traditional notions of place, in which culture and geographic location neatly coincide, are being challenged by legacies of slavery, colonialism, holocaust, immigration, tourism, and mass-communication. Whether the subject is Germany in Africa, Germans dressing as Native Americans, American towns dressed as Germany, New York in Las Vegas, New York in Cuba, or Cuba in exile, our interest tends to be a place out of place with its various causes and consequences.

For more information, please contact Michelle Laflamme-Childs at SFAI 505.424.5050, email SFAI , or visit the SFAI website.
