VIVIAN MAIER: PHOTOGRAPHY’S LOST VOICE

February 21st – May 26th, 2018

Culled from an archive of over 3,000 vintage prints, the exhibition will feature a variety of original and unseen photographs, including Maier’s own darkroom prints, providing viewers with a unique glimpse into Maier’s previously unexplored works.

A private woman, Maier’s work was never exhibited during her lifetime, but in recent years her work has been posthumously recognized in the form of a variety of media examining her life and legacy, including documentaries, books, and exhibitions.

Two Hollywood films on Maier are currently in production. Vivian Maier: Photography’s Lost Voice will include Maier’s emblematic street photography, but will also offer a perspective into Maier’s photographic interests beyond the street, including a selection of unseen landscape studies.

  • Wednesday – Saturday 11am – 5pm
  • Sunday, Monday, Tuesday CLOSED

DHARMA IN THE HEARTLAND Reception - BY ALLAN YATES

On display February 1 - 28
Art Bank Gallery, 811 Massachusetts Ave, Indianapolis, Indiana 46204
Opening reception February 2nd 6 - 9 p.m.
Admission and parking free


Dharma in the Heartland is an ongoing documentary project that I began in 2012 and is the body of work from which the images for this exhibit have been selected. Unknown to most mid-westerners, there are at present 150 small but vibrant Buddhist spiritual communities (known as Sanghas) and meditation centers in the Midwest region of the U.S. My photographic inquiry into these communities began with the Tibetan Mongolian Buddhist Cultural Center in Bloomington, IN which is the focal point of this exhibit. The intention behind my documentary photography of Buddhism in the Midwest is to provide others with insight into a very different culture that exists in America's heartland. It is my hope that this project will provide others with visual art that is at once thought provoking, insightful and engaging.

Gallery Hours:
Wed - Sat 11am-7pm
Sunday 12pm-4pm

Bring your camera for hands-on practice during the workshop. RSVP today to insure your spot in this limited availability class.

Waste Land

Filmed over a period of nearly three years, this documentary traces the contemporary photographer Vik Muniz from his studio in Brooklyn to his Brazilian homeland. His subject is the world’s largest garbage dump (Jardim Gramacho on the outskirts of Rio de Janeiro) and its pickers (catadores) of recyclable materials. Beyond looking at the artistic process and poverty, it presents an uplifting story of the transformative power of art. The film premiered at the 2010 Sundance Film Festival, where it won the Audience Award, and went on to be nominated for the Academy Award® for Best Documentary Feature. Waste Land features music by Moby. In English and Portuguese with English subtitles.  (Digital Presentation)

Nan Brewer, the Eskenazi Museum of Art’s Lucienne M. Glaubinger Curator of Works on Paper, will discuss photographs from Vik Muniz’s Pictures of Garbage series, the subject of the documentary, which are included in the museum’s major mid-career retrospective of the artist.

Photography as Art: Indianapolis with Art Wolfe

In this full-day seminar, you’ll learn that the beauty, emotion and versatility expressed through photography are matched only by the limits of your imagination. Using art history as a reference point, the seminar highlights common visual elements, from shape and space to texture and light, and shows you how to apply them to enhance your own compositions. You’ll explore innovative ways to translate conceptual ideas into creative results, learn how to spot the non-obvious, and uncover new ways to expand your visual imagination.

The photographs in Islands of the Blest depict various places in the American West. They were taken over a one-hundred-year period, from the 1870s through the 1970s. The photographers presented range from the completely unknown to some of America’s most distinguished practitioners of the medium, including Timothy H. O’Sullivan and Dorothea Lange. All images were sourced from digital public archives, such as the Library of Congress and the United States Geological Survey Library, and remain readily available to download.

Artist Bryan Schutmaat and art historian Ashlyn Davis selected the pictures with an eye toward telling a history of the exploration, settlement and industrialization of the West. They worked with Curator of Photography Brian Sholis to create the sequence presented at the Mercantile Library. It is a poetic chronology of a region that retains its mythical status in the American imagination.

Exhibition open to the public: Monday–Friday, 9 a.m.–5:30 p.m., Saturday 10 a.m.–3 p.m.

The Grunwald Gallery at Indiana University Bloomington is pleased to present Framing Beauty:Intimate Visions, an exhibit guest-curated by Deborah Willis, University Professor and Chair of the Department of Photography and Imaging in the Tisch School of the Arts at New York University. The exhibit will contain photographs, video, paintings and objects by twenty contemporary artists from the United States, Europe and Africa

The exhibition will provide an opportunity to address the political and cultural nuances of the idea of beauty and structure discussion about this indefinable and sometimes enigmatic attribute. Guest curator Deborah Willis will bring a knowledgeable approach to this project by selecting artists whose work questions ideas of beauty in terms of race, gender and cultural assumptions and perceptions. The video, performances, photographs and installations in this exhibit will require viewers to consider their own ideas about beauty and how images might shape our personal and cultural definitions.
