She Who Tells a Story – Contemporary photography from Iran and the Arab World

The exhibition “She Who Tells a Story” features over 80 photographs and video installations by twelve female artists from the Arab World. The focus of the exhibition and the selection of work was highly political. It preceded this time of even more extreme racism, bigotry and  misogyny in the US (and beyond). The currency of the show is undeniable as it is the urgency of revisiting it.

Delicate and strong. Dreams and travels. Kitamura and Araki.

About Kitamura’s transience, absence, dream-like images and “Sentimental Journey” by Nobuyoshi Araki.

Families, emotions and new media. On John Clang.

The process of taking the photographs that constitute John Clang’s “Being Together” is very emotive, profoundly moving. Feelings and emotions are generated by it. Although the title suggests that the work is about physical contact and about sharing spaces, the focus and the ethos of it is in fact about a state of mind, about a mood, about a shared emotional state that exceeds spatial and temporal barriers.

Talking About Paying For Sex

The spectator is confronted by arguments for and against the sex industry, opposing views coming simultaneously at you from each ear. This clash of audible viewpoints confuses the spectator, reflecting the complexity of the sex industry debate, while at the same time contrasting with the sharper, 3D visual account presented through the stereoscope. The sum of this effect is powerful and a bit disorientating, and through it McElveen remains neutral on the subject, allowing the spectator to make their own decisions on the subject.

From 1996 to 1997, a retrospective of Mendieta’s work framed within the discourse of cultural fusion was organized by Centro Galego de Arte Contemporanea and after its inaugural stop in Santiago de Compostela, it travelled to Dusseldorf, Barcelona, Miami and Los Angeles. Although I was too young at the time to even have begun to pay attention to contemporary art, let alone feminist one, a few months ago I found a copy of the exhibition catalogue.

In “Photography is Magic”, Cotton approaches photography as close-up magic and close-up magic as a medium. Thereby, the magician’s skills becomes comparable to hability visual makers have to produce mesmerizing, enchanting lens-based images.
