Civilian Art Projects launches two new photography exhibitions of work by women artists. The America Project: Utopia, new work by celebrated photographer Noelle K. Tan, and REMOTE, a group photography exhibition featuring Lisa K. Blatt, Lely Constantinople, Kate MacDonnell, and E. Brady Robinson, open on Friday, October 29, 2010. The exhibitions will be on view through November 27th with programming throughout DC's Fotoweek celebration (Nov. 6-13, 2010).
The America Project by Noelle K. Tan is an expansive three-part photographic series depicting historical sites and cultural markers in America. The project includes the series utopia, being exhibited for the first time at Civilian Art Projects; Trace; and Main Street. The work addresses the idealization of the past and the consequences of pursuing the idea of better.
REMOTE is a thematic exhibition of the photographic work of four compelling women: Lisa K. Blatt (San Francisco, CA), Lely Constantinople (Washington, DC), Kate MacDonnell (Washington, DC), and E. Brady Robinson (Washington, DC & Orlando, FL). The exhibition's theme refers to desolate far reaches of the mind and the land -- places hard to reach, but rich with reward when discovered and investigated. Images of Antartica complement hypnotic, ethereal images of the sun and sky. Mysterious pictures of Paris and romantic images of Mexico connect and entwine the desolation of the desert with the muted colors of the beach and ocean.
