PEOPLE WHO CAME TO MY HOUSE: Portraits by Syracuse Area Photographers

April 9, 2016toMay 21, 2016

© 2006-07 Ben Altman

OPENING RECEPTION
SATURDAY, APRIL 9 from 7-9pm

Photographers usually venture out into the world to find their subjects. This time, a group of Syracuse area photographers allowed the world to come to them. Their portraits of service providers, delivery people, and sales people, along with brief biographical details, peer inside the intricate connections and communities of the Syracuse area.

Curated by Ben Altman and Syracuse photographer Bob Gates, the project challenges us to think about the many ways in which we depend on one another for the necessities and comforts of our daily lives. It also creates a portrait of the home life of each photographer.

Altman and Gates have based their exhibition on work that Altman, who now lives in the Ithaca area, began in Chicago nearly ten years ago. The economic, class, and ethnic questions that his work raises inspired us to do this in our own community.

IN POOR TASTE: The Genetically Modified Foods Kitchen

June 4, 2016toJuly 16, 2016

© Christine Chin

OPENING RECEPTION
SATURDAY, JUNE 4th from 7-9pm

Created by Christine Chin, The Genetically Modified Foods Kitchen explores the controversial technology that allows us to transfer genes between species. Part human and part vegetable, Chin’s Vegetable Human Hybrids make visible the usually invisible process of genetic modification.  In the familiar context of a cookbook and a cooking show, these creations bring concerns about the ethics and politics of biotechnology into the domestic space. Playing with both humor and the grotesque, Chin’s photographs encourage people to consider how technology affects our society and our dinner plates.

Christine Chin is an artist whose work makes ironic commentary on contemporary issues of technology and the environment. She has addressed artificial intelligence, healthcare and alternative energy. She has exhibited at the New York Hall of Science, Art Basel Miami, and Canon Communication Space, Beijing. She has an MFA in Photography from the University of New Mexico and teaches in the Department of Art and Architecture at Hobart and William Smith Colleges.
