One-man show tackles the sky

Monday, November 5, 2018

As an undergraduate student, Ted Kincaid disabled the light meter on his Polaroid camera. A longer shutter speed let him capture time in motion instead of static images. Kincaid has since focused his artistic practice on the exploration and exploitation of photography’s tug-of-war between reality and artistic truth. He uses digital media both to create manufactured “photographs” and to deconstruct and radically reorder segments of photograph into pure color and form. This second process forges the focus of “Even if I Lose Everything,” Kincaid’s first solo museum exhibition, which will be on view at the Georgia Museum of Art at the University of Georgia from November 17, 2018, to January 13, 2019.


Museum celebrates meeting of art and science

Monday, October 15, 2018

Rebecca Rutstein is both an award-winning artist and an ocean explorer. This fall, as UGA’s Delta Visiting Chair for Global Understanding, she will embark on her fifth deep-sea expedition/artist’s residency, with a team of scientists led by the University of Georgia’s Samantha Joye and the University of North Carolina’s Andreas Teske. While the scientists study hydrothermal vents and the unique carbon-cycling processes occurring in Mexico’s Guaymas Basin in the Sea of Cortez, Rutstein will set up her studio on the ship and create new works inspired by the data they’re collecting in real time.

Sculptor Richard Hunt fuses diverse influences

Wednesday, September 5, 2018

Art and experimental zoology aren’t the most obvious of pairings, but sculptor Richard Hunt worked in an animal lab at the University of Chicago as a teenager, earning money to pay for college. The result was an influence that has spanned his six-decades-long career, which will be on view in “Richard Hunt: Synthesis.” This exhibition organized by the Georgia Museum of Art at the University of Georgia will be on view from October 20 through February 3.
