Visiting Artist: Lauren Woods

"lauren woods is a multimedia artist whose hybrid media projects—film, video and sound installations, interventions and site-specific work—engage history while contemplating the socio-politics of the present. Challenging the tradition of documentary/ethnography as objective, she creates ethno-fictive documents that investigate invisible dynamics in society, remixing memory and imagining other possibilities. She explores how traditional monument-making can be translated into new contemporary models of memorializing, substituting the traditional marble and granite for digital video. Born in Kansas City, MO and raised in Dallas, TX, woods holds a BA in Radio, Television and Film and a BA in Spanish with a sociology minor from the University of North Texas. In 2006, she received her Masters of Fine Arts from the San Francisco Art Institute. Her work has been exhibited throughout the United States and internationally, including Washington D.C., San Francisco, Los Angeles, New York, Dallas, Miami as well as Puerto Rico, Taiwan, South Korea, Japan, Mali and France. She has been the recipient of grants and awards from numerous institutions including The Tribeca Film Foundation, College Art Association, Alliance of Artists Communities and the San Francisco Foundation."

Visiting Artist: Alec Soth - “Gathered Leaves”

The Department of Art + Art History at The University of Texas at Arlington is pleased to announce the First Annual Arlington Camera Lecture Series sponsored by Arlington Camera. The series launches at 7 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 21, in room 148 of the Fine Arts Building, 700 Greek Row Drive.

The event features Alec Soth, a Minneapolis-based photographer known for his photographs and many publications.  He will discuss his newest project, “Gathered Leaves”, in conversation with his friend and colleague Anne Wilkes Tucker.

Soth’s photographs have been featured in numerous solo and group exhibitions, including the 2004 Whitney and São Paulo Biennials. Soth’s first monograph, Sleeping by the Mississippi, was published by Steidl in 2004 to critical acclaim. Since then Soth has published NIAGARA (2006), Fashion Magazine (2007) Dog Days, Bogotá (2007) The Last Days of W (2008), and Broken Manual (2010). In 2008, a large survey exhibition of Soth’s work was exhibited at Jeu de Paume in Paris and Fotomuseum Winterthur in Switzerland. The Walker Art Center produced a large survey exhibition of Soth’s work entitled From Here To There in 2010 and since that time Soth has been the recipient of numerous fellowships and awards, including the Guggenheim Fellowship (2013). 

Tucker recently retired from the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston where she served as founding curator of the photography department. It was for her work there that Tucker was named America’s Best Curator by TIME magazine in 2001. Over the course of her career at the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, Tucker organized or co-organized more than 40 exhibitions, including landmark presentations that helped define scholarship of underexplored areas of the medium. These include Czech Modernism: 1900–1945 (1989), The History of Japanese Photography (2003), and the currently touring WAR/PHOTOGRAPHY: Images of Armed Conflict and Its Aftermath (2012), an unprecedented exploration of war through the eyes of photographers. She has also authored dozens of publications, including the WAR/PHOTOGRAPHY exhibition catalogue, which received the prestigious 2013 Kraszna-Krausz Book Award for best photography book. 

There will be a reception for the speakers in the Gallery at UTA beginning at 6 p.m., with the artist’s lecture immediately following at 7 p.m.  Both events are free and open to the public.   For more information, please go to www.uta.edu/art or call 817-272-2891.
