Lisa Tuttle: Mock Proposal
February 23 to March 30, 2019
Reception: Saturday, February 23, 5-7:30 pm
For her first solo exhibition at Poem 88, Lisa Tuttle presents a series of images that correct Confederate monuments toward an historical accuracy.
Tuttle says about the work:
"It really began as a hypothetical proposal but the more I work on it, the more I think that it is completely feasible. “Mock” can also imply ridicule, and that is not my intention. A bit tongue-in-cheeky perhaps but increasingly a serious, alternative albeit subversive proposal. Historical observance of the defeat and surrender of the CSA (April 9, 1865 at Appomattox Courthouse and the dissolution of the CSA government on May 4, 1865 in Washington, Ga./Wilkes County.) If “historical” significance prevents their removal, then perhaps we might observe a different, but accurate, historical significance!"

So fantastic to see this mural through the rain this morning, on the Fulton County Daily Report building at Pryor & Trinity. The piece is part of Off the Wall ATL, an incredible effort from local arts non-profit Wonderroot.
"Sheila Pree Bright re-created the Richard Avedon image with mothers of unarmed victims of police brutality from across the nation. These mothers have become leaders and activists fighting for social justice to bring about accountability and policy reform that speaks to racial injustices in the 21st century."

"Focusing a lens on one of the 20th century’s preeminent photojournalists, HENRI DAUMAN: LOOKING UP celebrates the seminal work and inspiring story of the artist behind some of the world’s most iconic images. Hardly a household name, Henri Dauman created a slideshow of American history, popular culture and high society, seen by millions of readers of Life magazine and other publications. Seeking to capture not just the likeness but the essence of his subjects, Dauman immortalized celebrities such as Marilyn Monroe, Andy Warhol, Brigitte Bardot, and Elvis Presley. His work extends to pivotal world events, portraits of ordinary people and, notably, stunning New York City photos that launched his 40-year career after immigrating to America. Stepping out from behind the camera for the first time, the self-taught perfectionist remains every bit the engaging storyteller, relaying his childhood trauma in wartime France and love of movies, which inform the life-affirming vibrancy of his work."

"Atlanta Celebrates Photography (ACP) produces the largest annual, community-oriented photography festival in the USA. Through our annual October festival and year-round programming, ACP seeks to involve anyone who has taken or shared a photograph to explore the power of photography as a language we all speak, to increase accessibility to the arts, to interact with the local community and enrich Atlanta’s cultural offerings.
Through the festival, each part of the city is touched by a variety of events and exhibitions – whether they're at the world's busiest airport, at bustling Piedmont Park, or tucked away in quiet corners of Atlanta's outskirts - we transform studios, galleries, museums and public spaces into a coordinated cultural experience!"
