Jock Sturges: Image Presentation and Artist Lecture

Thursday, March 8, 7 PM

Christina, Misty Dawn & Alisa, 1989

Richland College is pleased to present renowned photographer Jock Sturges at 7 p.m. on March 8 in the Fannin Performance Hall (f102).

Richland College 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 Ralph Gibson, Mary Ellen Mark, Jerry Uelsmann and Maggie Taylor, Joyce Tenneson, Keith Carter, and Arno Minkkinen. Sturges, known for his sublime photographs of the female nude, will address ideas of beauty and biography in art. This presentation will contain images that may not be suitable for younger or more sensitive audiences.

Sturges’ talk at Richland College will draw on the wider cultural and academic context of his photography, grounding his work in the history of art, while delving into his interests in perceptual psychology and anthropology. For Sturges, it is important to understand, “how vital it is for aspiring artists in any medium to be well and broadly educated in art history specifically and in all culture more generally.”

Sturges, a highly published and exhibited photographer, received his BFA from Marlboro College in 1974 and his MFA in photography from the San Francisco Art Institute in 1985. Currently he is working as a fine art photographer in California, Washington state, Ireland, The Netherlands, and the Atlantic coast of France. He is also a commercial freelance photographer specializing in fashion and classical dance and a contributing editor to various photography magazines. Locally, he had a solo exhibition at Photographs Do Not Bend in Dallas in 2001. His most recent monograph, Notes, as well his earlier acclaimed books, The Last Days of Summer and Radiant Identities, will be available for sale at the book signing.

Piotr Chizinski: Inhabited

Richland College is proud to present Piotr Chizinski: New Work. Chizinski’s art develops through a careful questioning of assumptions surrounding the issue of class. Chizinksi’s photographic work utilizes pseudo-science to document class levels by quantifying the trappings of a living room into a score denoting low, proletariat, middle or high class. The work, while taking into account issues of heredity and culture, questions the stratification in society and the individual within a system that proposes unlimited upward mobility.

Born in 1981 in Connecticut, Piotr Chizinksi has traveled the world through doors opened by his art. After receiving his Bachelor’s degree from Texas Tech University in Lubbock, Texas Chizinski collaborated on the creation of the Ryder Jon Piotrs Nomadic Gallery which has travelled throughout the Southwest. After inclusion in the Viewfinder photography exhibit in Houston and Dallas  Piotr Chizinski’s works were included in the Guangzhou Biennial of Photography in China and the Art LA Expo in Los Angeles, CA. He spent two months at the Hilmsen Residency in Germany during the summer of 2009 developing his recent studies.

The most recent work is based on a eugenics movement in Virginia during the 1920’s that sterilized over 10,000 men for their inability to pass tests developed by highly educated sociologists. The work takes an uncomfortably close look at the family trees of the area and offers a similar sterilization test notifying the test taker of their ‘breeding status’.

Please join us for the opening reception from 4-7 pm and a gallery talk at 6 pm on Thursday, March 4th, 2010. The Brazos Gallery is located on Richland College Campus in the Crockett Building, Room C-140. Brazos Gallery hours are from 10-5 PM Monday through Friday. For more information please contact Ryder Richards, Gallery Coordinator at Richland College, at 972.238.6339 or by email at rrichards@dcccd.edu.
