IN GOD’S HOUSE: The Photographs of Robert Knight

November 19, 2016toJanuary 21, 2017

2016-17 promo-GOD 3

 In God’s House examines religious diversity as a reflection of the contemporary immigration crisis and demographic shifts facing Europe. Knight’s photographs of religious services juxtapose historic Christian churches with contemporary mosques in cities across Europe, revealing both similarities and differences between faiths. The resulting images allow us to consider not only our contemporary relationship to religion but also our relationship to those different than ourselves.

Robert Knight, originally from Boston, Massachusetts is a Professor of Art at Hamilton College in Clinton, New York. He is a recipient of a 2016 Light Work Grant in Photography.

UNWRAPPING VANESSA: Fiber Memory Art by Vanessa Johnson

February 11, 2017toMarch 25, 2017

2016-17 promo-VANESSA3

Unwrapping Vanessa, by Syracuse fiber artist and storyteller Vanessa Johnson, highlights a new body of work that honors the voices of women and girls who continue to influence the artist’s life, and speaks to her own transnational experience through the women who inspire her. Vanessa is a Griot, a writer, a playwright, an actor, a fiber artist, a museum consultant, a community activist, a historian, and an educator.

“I am a quilt of all the Women and Girls that I have met on my life journey; the telling of their struggles, triumphs, and defeats. I learned who I was though their testimonies, and used their stories to develop how I fought my own battles in creating an Identity as a Woman of African Descent living in the United States. These stories shaped my definition of Social Justice, and influenced my own activism. Without these Voices, these Stories, I would not be who I am today.” – Vanessa Johnson

dotter6

Earl Dotter has been photographing American workers on the job for over forty years. Beginning in the Appalachian coalfields in the early 1970’s and continuing to the present, he has put a human face on those who labor, often in dangerous and unhealthy conditions. In 2007, Dotter’s Coal Mining Series was added to the permanent collection of the National Portrait Gallery, Smithsonian Institute in Washington, DC. The Occupational Health Clinical Center of Syracuse is the primary collaborator on this exhibition, and much of the work in the exhibition comes from their private collection.

   From Civil Rights & Anti-Viet Nam War to Black Lives Matter & Climate Justice

Posters, employing powerful imagery and succinct text, have been an inspirational part of social change movements around the world. Spanning over 50 years, this exhibition includes posters from women’s, LGBTQ, and anti-nuke movements as well as work surrounding resistance to U.S. aggression in Central America. The published and distributed posters of the Syracuse Cultural Workers (SCW) make up the majority of this exhibition.

Additional posters will come from the massive archive of the Center for the Study of Political Graphics (CSPG) based in Los Angeles.
