“Outlands: Land Over Time” showcases the different uses and conditions of land and related built environment outside an urban setting. Focused on how the land has been cultivated, neglected or exploited, this exhibition is an attempt to trace how Americans’ approach and their stance in relation to land has changed over the past 50 years.
Featuring photography by William Boling, Rachel Barrett, Debbie Fleming Caffery, Maude Clay, Susan Hadorn, Jason Houston, Holly Lynton, Tom Rankin and Kathleen Robbins
Artist talk with Jason Houston – Saturday, September 17 at 2 p.m.
“One Block” by Dave Anderson also opens September 10. In the wake of Hurricane Katrina, photographer Dave Anderson spent three years repeatedly photographing a single block in the Holy Cross section of New Orleans’ Lower Ninth Ward, following both the obvious physical rebuilding of the homes as well as the evolving psychological state of its residents.
Dave Anderson’s work has appeared in magazines from Time to Esquire and is in various museum collections. His book “Rough Beauty” won the Santa Fe Center for Photography 2005 Project Competition, and “One Block: An New Orleans Neighborhood Rebuilds” was published by Aperture in 2010.
Book signing at 6 p.m.
Both shows run through Oct. 8.
