Marilyn Minter, at Zuckerman Museum of Art

February 1st, 2017
As we begin the annual run-up to October's #acpfest, we thought it would be fun to gradually share info about a couple of artists whose work you might see this fall.

NYC-based artist Marilyn Minter currently has work on view at Kennesaw State University at the Zuckerman Museum of Art, in their "Gut Feelings" exhibition, open through May 7th.

"This exhibition brings together a group of contemporary artists in whose work food, feeding, and cooking are symbolic representations of exchanged emotion. Organized around main themes of abjection and desire; nourishment as power or control; and food as material of the body, Gut Feelings looks to food as a vessel for a wide range of relationships."
Ms. Minter also has an exhibition up at the Brooklyn Museum: Pretty/Dirty and has been in the news recently for being on the frontlines as an activist, organizing artists in response to our new political reality.

Danielle Roney at Museum of Contemporary Photography

April 1st, 2009
Atlanta-based artist Danielle Roney is part of a group exhibition in Chicago called "The Edge of Intent" at the Museum of Contemporary Photography. Curated by ACP10 Portfolio Reviewer Natasha Egan, the show includes work by Liset Castillo, Dionisio González, Andrew Harrison, Tim Long, David Maisel, Simon Menner, Danielle Roney, Christina Seely, Eric Smith, and Joel Sternfeld.
"Moving from sand to animation, Danielle Roney’s (American, 1968) single-channel, three-section video eGoli imagines a fantastical landscape in a mythical “city of gold,” once an alias for Johannesburg, South Africa. During a 2007 residency in South Africa, the Atlanta-Beijing–based artist documented her experience through photographs, video, and sound recordings. Collaborating with animator Jeff Conefry, Roney crafts a hyper-real cyber city and its environs. The result implies a city struggling to find both its own ideal and its desire to become part of a global community. eGoli explores the African countryside and Johannesburg’s environs, and also the molecular structures of the city’s built environment."

Sheila Pree Bright, in Cleveland

December 8th, 2008
There's a substantial article about Sheila Pree Bright's latest exhibition at the Museum of Contemporary Art Cleveland in the Cleveland Plain Dealer.
"Tapping into common racial and socio-economic stereotypes, Bright challenges viewers to examine their own preconceptions and to consider the idea that relationships between race and lifestyle are often misrepresented in the mainstream media."
