Lecture and Image Presentation
Thursday, March 10, 2011
Fannin Performance Hall, 7:00 PM
presented by Richland College Photographic and Imaging Department
Richland College is proud to present renowned photographer Ralph Gibson at 7 p.m., Thurs., March 10 in the Fannin Performance Hall at Richland College. Richland continues its commitment to excellence in photography by bringing world-class photographers to campus to interact with students over the course of a day concluding with a free public lecture, reception and book-signing. Past participants in this distinguished series include Mary Ellen Mark, Jerry Uelsmann & Maggie Taylor, Joyce Tenneson, Keith Carter, and Arno Minkkinen.
Ralph Gibson studied photography while in the U.S. Navy and then at the San Francisco Art Institute. He began his professional career as an assistant to Dorothea Lange and went on to work with Robert Frank on two films. Gibson has maintained a lifelong fascination with books and book-making. Since the appearance of “The Somnambulist” in 1970, his work has been steadily impelled towards the printed page. To date, he has produced over 40 monographs, his most current projects being “State of the Axe” to be published by Yale University Press in Fall of 2008 and “Nude” by Taschen, 2009. His photographs are included in over 150 museum collections around the world, including the Dallas Museum of Art and the Meadows Museum at Southern Methodist University and have appeared in hundreds of exhibitions.
Gibson’s awards include fellowships from the John Simon Guggenheim Foundation and the National Endowment for the Arts, as well as the Leica Medal of Excellence and the Silver Plumb Award from the Landmarks Preservation Committee. He is a Commandeur de l’Ordre des Arts et des Lettres of France, and holds honorary doctorate degrees from the University of Maryland and Ohio Wesleyan University. In 2007, he received The Lucie Award for Fine Art Photography. He has worked exclusively with the Leica for almost 50 years.
As Gibson explains, “I have been a photographer all my life….and have made photographs of many things and for many reasons. But one thing that becomes more and more apparent is that I am simply only as good as my next photograph. That’s the one that counts the most….For this reason, I find it a delight to face a new day, and to develop that new roll of film. It’s a great way to live.”

“The Ergonomics of Futility”
An Installation/ Performance by Sheepad Joglekar and Ian F. Thomas.
Saturday, Nov 20th, 7-10 PM
Location: 411 N. Tyler, Oak Cliff area of Dallas, TX
(close to the MFA Gallery)
Sheepad and Ian’s work explores the inefficiencies found in complacency, inflation, futility and politics. The Ergonomics of Futility will utilize and demonstrate, through performance and installation, the inevitable, redundant conflicts between idealism and the real. It is expected to present complex critiques of socio-economic hierarchies that are entangled in everyday life. Employing diverse methods, this one-night-only happening will shine a light on issues that impact all of us.
BREAKDOWN: Ian and Shreepad will come to Dallas from Pennsylvania and Victoria, TX (respectively) on Wed the 17th. Ian will do a workshop at Richland College on Thursday the 18th for the Richaland College Clay Club. “Ergonomics and Futility” will be opening Saturday, Nov 20th in Dallas.
Ian F Thomas is formally trained with an MFA in Ceramics from Texas Tech University and currently teaches for Slippery Rock University in Pennsylvania. Shreepad Joglekar has an MFA in Photography from Texas Tech University and is an instructor for The Victoria College in Victoria, TX. Meeting in school they developed their original collaborations utilizing hybrid methodologies including sculpture, drawing and performance to realize their ideas. In Dallas the duo will create a performance based installation focused on economic futility… mostly contradictions involving work and money. Of the diverse methods mentioned, the artist will most likely employ students, volunteers, or day laborers to create then destroy objects and money conflicting the time/cost paradigm. The event should include several local participants who will repeatedly perform futile actions related to commerce and manual labor.
