MARCUS DUNN "OTHER YOUTH"
AUG. 20 - NOV. 3
SCAD MUSEUM OF ART, 601 TURNER BLVD. SAVANNAH, GA 31401
"Other Youth," the first solo museum exhibition by Marcus Dunn (M.F.A., painting, 2017). In these new paintings, the artist, a member of the Tuscarora Nation of North Carolina, explores his cultural heritage through the appropriation of historic images. The exhibition continues Dunn’s interrogation of the often overlooked narratives of attendees of government-backed Native American boarding schools of the late 19th and mid-20th centuries. Dunn has exhibited his work at the Institute of American Indian Arts Museum of Contemporary Native Arts in Santa Fe, New Mexico, and Gutstein Gallery in Savannah, Georgia. He is currently living and working in Indianapolis, Indiana.
"Aura and Invention: Alternative Processes in Photography"
Sept. 26- Nov. 14
Trois Gallery, Atlanta, GA, 1600 Peachtree St. NW
SCAD presents "Aura and Invention: Alternative Processes in Photography." This exhibition includes dynamic photography artwork by SCAD students and recent alumni from the Atlanta and Savannah locations. Works in this exhibition exemplify inventiveness in process and design by young artists who are pushing the limits and potential for photography in an image-saturated society. Through alternative perspectives in composition, these artists challenge modes of reproduction and offer alternatives to a culture of instant production and dissemination of images.
