Ryan Nabulsi: Photo Secession
12-2 p.m.
1100 Howell Mill Road Suite A03
White Provisions District (behind Perrine’s and Garden)
Atlanta, Georgia 30318
Ryan Nabulsi: Photo Secession. In many ways, Ryan Nabulsi’s camera-less photographs represent a natural conclusion to the goals of Steiglitz and Steichen in promoting pictorial photography. Relying on the manipulation of the photographic chemical process for instant photography, Nabulsi generates abstractions of lush color perhaps more akin to color field painting. He is a great cultivator of the happy accident thus chance figures prominently in his process. Like the collaborations of John Cage and Merce Cunningham, Nabulsi rolls the dice of unpredictability to create explosions of petal-like forms, a sea of green forming into a kind of tidal wave, the stratifications of a strange fossil, an ovum, a nebula. Ryan Nabulsi: Photo Secession is in conjunction with Atlanta Celebrates Photography and runs September 10 to October 8.

SALTWORKS
William Cordova
664 11th St. NW
“buscame en el torbellino: but also time itself,” a project by artist William Cordova, “focuses on the duality and recourses of collective memory within our spatiotemporal continuum. Slowing down our visual sensors in order to comprehend and disseminate the parallels between familiar and distant historical moments in many cases forgotten or displaced. A sculptural element entitled, This one’s 4U is scaffolding turned sideways transformed into a self-contained projection module and will screen two films: Tupac Amaru by Federico Garcia Hurtado (1984) and Tupac: Thug Angel by Peter Spirer (2002). Both film and structure nuance complex historical trajectories.” -William Cordova
