Artwork Documentation

Gallery Documentation: Gallery 501 - Effect/Affect by James Reiman

Last week I had the opportunity to document a phenomenal show at Gallery 501, which is located on the campus of Howard W. Blake School of the Arts in Tampa, FL.  Here is the press release:

Effect/Affect presents a range of artistic responses to the cultural landscape of the 1970s to the present day through a curated selection on loan from the Collection of the University of South Florida alongside the collaborative project SWAP – MAKE ONE / TAKE ONE – A ZINE PROJECT headed by Tampa-based contemporary artist Jay Giroux.

Artwork from University of South Florida Collection includes works by Trenton Doyle Hancock, Vito Acconci, Lorna Simpson, Jia Aili, Jenny Holzer, Graciela Iturbide, Roy Lichtenstein, Ibrahim Miranda, Claes Oldenburg, Ed Ruscha, Hollis Sigler, Sergei Volkov and Gunter Wirth, all courtesy of the USF Contemporary Art Museum.

Effect/Affect is co-curated by Amanda Poss and Vincent Kral with the collaboration of Noel Smith.  The exhibit was on display October 6-26, 2017 by appointment.  In case you missed it, here are some of the photos I made of the exhibit.

Gallery Documentation: "Mementos" at the Centre Gallery by James Reiman

Last week I documented Mementos at the Centre Gallery located on the second floor of the Marshall Student Center at the University of South Florida Tampa campus.  Mementos is a group exhibition with works by Tampa-based artists: Jessica Barber, Jenal Dolson, Chasity Williams, Jessica Brasseur, and Pat Blocher, curated by Alyssa Cordero. The exhibition was on view from September 18 - 29, 2017.

Here is a portion of the original press release for the exhibit:

Visitors to the gallery will experience works that examine the ideas of memory and art as souvenirs of experiences. Through combinations of painting, installation, photography, drawing, and mixed medium the artists create mixtures of their experiences frozen in time as a visual memory. These works are shared memories created by the artist and then experienced again by the viewer.

Using combinations of different mediums and forms of techniques, the artist’s emphasize familiar imagery and forms to created these works of moments. The artists are all Tampa-based and current USF students or alumni.
