Gallery artists in group exhibition, Cautionary Tales : A Visual Dystopia.
Santa Fe Gallery artist Laurie Tumer and Photographer's Showcase artist David Ondrik will be exhibiting works in the group exhibition Cautionary Tales : A Visual Dystopia this Saturday, September 6, 2008, 6-8PM at 516Arts in Albuquerque, The gallery is located at 516 Central Avenue SW, Albuquerque, NM 87102. In an epoch in which our global community seems to be rapidly disintegrating politically, economically and most alarmingly, environmentally, this exhibit will present work by artists whose images reflect a world going/gone awry. This is a place where much is not well through misuse/abuse of the environment, where because of the failure of society as a whole to properly take care of itself and the world it exists in, we may actually be near the end of the world as we have always known it. These artists have a common theme of alarm and dismay, while at the same time finding haunting beauty and powerful personal expression in their words of caution to us all. Featured artists include Roger Ballen, Jeff Gibson, Robert Hirsch, Rhiannon Mercer, Lori Nix, David Ondrik, Robert Sullkin, Emily Trovillion, Laurie Tumer, Erika Wanenmacher, William Wilson and Cathy Wysocki. Curated by Holly Roberts.

The Westerns
reviewed by Ryon James

Katy Grannan has always been drawn to "lost souls" as subjects. In her earlier work, she allowed her subjects to find her through indirect means such as classified ads and word-of-mouth (Model Americans, Aperture 2005). With The Westerns, Grannan has taken the initiative and sought out the desired individuals, approaching people in public that spark her interest. This new approach seems to have granted Grannan more control over her gamut of models, and allowed her to form extensive relationships with several of the individuals in the book...

Toto mesto je vespolecne peci obyvatel (This Town is Under the Control of its Citizens) Toto mesto je vespolecne peci obyvatel (This Town is Under the Control of its Citizens)
A wildly scarce Czech title that will thrill those who may already know the only slightly more common book Na jehlach techto dni [On the Needle of These Days] by Jindrich Heisler and Jindrich Strysky. As Parr and Badger describe, it is an "urban meditation that uses photographic fragments, glimpses of the urban streetscape, to make a wider point about our political situation in the late twentieth century...The book's title may or may not be intentionally ironic. The dark, fragmented nature of the pictures indicate that it is, suggesting an anti-Communist critique made just prior to the 'Prague Spring...Peterka details a familiar iconography of photographic melancholia—abstracted signs, mysterious doorways, peeling and crumbling walls, miserable looking people on the streets, a broken mask lying by a lamp-post. With these apparent cliches, he creates an atmosphere of gloom and uncertainty, mirroring the alienated lives of modern man."

: Bill Wood's Business Bill Wood's Business
"The photographs in Bill Wood's Business start with a few from the 1940s, (most have been lost) and move through the 1950s and 1960s. The creation and curation of this book have transformed businessman Wood into a documentarian by highlighting how he subtly addressed many of the major issues plaguing his generation—racism, sexism, labor inequalities, the worker as consumer and the beginning stages for of suburban sprawl. Conversely, his images also reinforcing how later generations would nostalgically view the baby boom."— Melanie McWhorter
