Christiane Feser

Gold Calendar IconWednesday, January 20, 2021 at noon

Christiane Feser works in ongoing series of unique three-dimensional photo objects that are assemblages of repeated forms and shadows represented through photography and construction. Simultaneously representational constructions and optical experiments, they lead us to question what has form and what is a representation of that form. The repeated forms are assembled in dense patterns and collectively evoke an abstract work that seems filled with an organic energy. Ultimately the work is sculptural, expanding our visual vocabulary and our perception of dimensions. Feser was born in Würzburg, Germany in 1977. She studied photography at the Offenbach University of Art and Design in Germany. Feser recently had a retrospective of her career to date at the Opelvillen, Rüsselheim, Germany and was included in the 2018 exhibition Cut! Paper Play in Contemporary Photography at The J. Paul Getty Museum, Los Angeles, CA. Her work is in the permanent collections of the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, Brown University, Rhode Island, Minneapolis Institute of the Arts, DZ Bank Kunstsammlung, Frankfurt, Mönchehaus Museum, Goslar, Sentrum für Kunst and Medien, Karlsruhe, Fundacion Juan March, Madrid, CCPC-Cisnero Collection, New York and Fotografische Sammlung Schloss Kummerow, among others. The artist lives and works in Frankfurt, Germany. Visit her website at www.christianefeser.de. To attend this Zoom lecture, register here

Jeanette May is a photo-based artist using a critical, sometimes playful, approach to investigate representation. Early training as a painter is evident in her carefully arranged compositions and rich color palette. May’s photographs are constructed, staged, lit, and carefully considered. Her recent still life projects confront the anxiety surrounding technological obsolescence. May received her MFA in Photography from CalArts and her BFA in Painting from the University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign. She has been awarded grants, fellowships, and residencies from the NEA Regional Artists’ Projects Fund, Brooklyn Arts Council, New York City Department of Cultural Affairs, Illinois Arts Council, Chicago Department of Cultural Affairs, Elizabeth Foundation for the Arts, and Ms. Foundation. Her work is exhibited in galleries and museums internationally, including New York, Washington, DC, Chicago, Los Angeles, Toronto, Milan, Athens, Barcelona, and Shanghai. May lives in Brooklyn, NY.
