Photographs by Darryl Curran; new photographic work by Karchi Perlmann, Andrew K. Thompson, Jonas Yip, and Jody Zellen.
*
“Mirror Mirror” features a building taking a picture of itself. On Sunday, June 7, 1987, photographer Darryl Curran set about to transform the closed Kress department store in downtown Riverside into a walk-in camera obscura. *
The pictures, Curran states, are “a result of the building taking a picture of itself.” They are self-reflexive. They are building selfies.

In the Sunshine of Neglect Reception tonight!

Friends, 
I am proud to invite you to In the Sunshine of Neglect: Defining Photographs and Radical Experiments in Inland Southern California, 1950 to the Present opening this TONIGHT, January 19th at the California Museum of Photography. The Reception will be from 6 p.m. – 9 p.m. but the exhibition will be on view until April 28th. 
This exhibition is a simultaneous two-part exhibition at UCR ARTS: California Museum of Photography and the Riverside Art Museum. The show presents the title’s territory on the eastern edge of the Los Angeles Basin as an experimental tabula rasa playground for photographers, where nothing was at stake, so everything was possible. 
In the Sunshine of Neglect includes 194 works by 54 photographers, including Kim Abeles, Ansel Adams, Robert Adams, Lewis Baltz, Laurie Brown, Judy Chicago, Joe Deal, Lewis deSoto, John Divola, Christina Fernandez, Judy Fiskin, Robbert Flick, Anthony Hernandez, Sant Khalsa, Richard Misrach, Kenda North, Allan Sekula, Julie Shafer, Julius Shulman, Joel Sternfeld, Hiroshi Sugimoto, Larry Sultan, Kim Stringfellow, and myself, Andrew K. Thompson, among others. The exhibition is curated by artist and UCR ARTS: California Museum of Photography Senior Curator Douglas McCulloh. 
Not only is this an incredibly stacked exhibition with so many great photographers, it will include a 274-page book published by the Inlandia Institute featuring essays by Douglas McCulloh, Thomas McGovern, Tyler Stallings, Susan Straight, Joanna Szupinska-Myers. 
In the Sunshine of Neglect is my first exhibition at UCR ARTS: California Museum of Photography, which has been a stated goal of mine since 2008.

This Sunday from 2-4! Stop by the opening of Transition Zone - an exhibition I have the pleasure of showing a painting in alongside several amazing artists and friends.

Transition Zone refers to the wild-land urban interface, the terrain where nature meets built environment. In the transition zone, we see how nature and culture navigate within one space. In this exhibition, artworks focus on the intersection of nature and culture, depicting the human impact on the natural world, sometimes in harmony and often in conflict. These artists passionately explore and express their ideas and feelings about their connection and relationship to nature. The artists employ a variety of media to explore the nature/culture relationship from diverse perspectives. Artists include: Fred Brashear, Jr., Mariah Armstrong Conner, Sapira Cheuk, Tanner McGuire, Heath Rössler, Dinyl Schmidt, Andrew K. Thompson and A. E. Van Fleet.

Sketch for an installation debuting in February. Keep it hush hush for now. #phototheory #analogphotography #andrewkthompson

Friends, I need help. I was appointed a class about women in photography. Yes, I recognize the bitter irony. Yes, I suggested that one of the other two female photo professors teach it. Still, the department heads felt that I was the best qualified because of my engagement in photo history and theory. So, with humility, I ask for suggestions. I have a list of canonical artists and writers but I want to be as thorough as I can about exposing the students to underrepresented ‘photographers’ (photo, video, photo process based). I know my “privilege” landed me this gig but I want to use this opportunity to open as many doors as possible. Any suggested texts, lens-based/photo process-based artists (female or female-identified), and anyone willing to speak to the class (via Skype or in person) will be greatly appreciated. Please and thank you in advance.

I needed to see these today...to remind me of my power as a woman who photographs and as an academic. He will be dropping knowledge at LaVerne and I will be teaching photo history at CSUSB next year. #lornasimpson #susanmeiselas #martharosler #sallymann #mariamartinezcañas #tamaracedre #womenphotograph #spewomenscaucus #representationmatters
