Exhibit: Photographic Recall: Italian Rationalist Architecture In Contemporary German Art

Tuesday, Mar. 19th - Friday, May. 10th

How do contemporary artists use photography to engage with Italian architecture of the Fascist era? What lures them today into the remains of this “Rationalist” style? Where is the tipping point between a self-proclaimed critical observation and complicity with Mussolini’s propaganda project of the 1920s-1940s? These and other questions occupy the minds of the seven artists in this exhibition. This is the first to showcase these mostly German photographers, independently all drawn to Italian Rationalist architecture and urban spaces.

Eyes on Ukraine: Five Contemporary Ukrainian Photographers

Tuesday, Mar. 19th - Saturday, May. 11th

With the current political interest in Ukraine, CEPA Gallery is proud to present the VASA curated exhibition Eyes on Ukraine: Five Contemporary Ukrainian Photographers. The exhibition covers a period of more than 25 years and features photographers from different parts of Ukraine and multiple generations. In the 1970s and 1980s, under strict state censorship, photographers mainly worked underground, and it was only after 1990 that artists emerged free from soviet ideological constraints.

The exhibit is curated by Igor Manko and Roberto Muffoletto. (Roberto is the founder of CEPA and will be flying in from Vienna for the opening).

The work is presented here by the following five Ukrainian artists: Igor Chekachkov (b. 1989); Alexander Chekmenev (b.1969); Vitaly Fomenko (b. 1983); Eugeny Kom (b. 1956); Lana Yankovska (b. 1981).

Humble and Human: An Exhibition in Honor of Ralph C. Wilson

Tuesday, Mar. 19th - Sunday, May. 26th
$16; From: 10:00 AM to 5:00 PM

The Albright-Knox Art Gallery, in partnership with the Detroit Institute of Arts, is proud to present this exhibition in honor of Ralph C. Wilson, Jr., a philanthropist, business leader, and advocate for the citizens of Western New York and Southeast Michigan—regions he called home.  Humble and Human has been organized in recognition of his enduring compassion and goodwill toward others. During his lifetime, he amassed a small but impressive collection of paintings by Impressionist artists. Mr. Wilson saw in the works of these late nineteenth-century avant-gardists—especially those of Monet—reflections of the values and ideas that were close to his own heart: the celebration of simple pleasures and ordinary people.
