MAY 28 ~
Phoenix Art Museum
Norton Family Photography Gallery
During a period of rapid change along the US-Mexico border in 2007, Arizona-based artist David Taylor began photographing the 276 monuments that delineate the border between Mexico and the United States, documenting each of the obelisks installed by the International Boundary Commission following the Mexican/American War.
In the process of his work, and as tensions in the area grew and the zone became increasingly politicized, Taylor became familiar with the region and undertook an extensive survey, one that rigorously engages the documentation conducted by Boundary Commission photographer D.R. Payne between 1891 and 1895. David Taylor: Here and Abroad includes the full portfolio of monument photographs, installed in numerical order, to form a grid. The exhibition also features recent photographs that complement and expand upon the artist’s documentation of the monuments. Primarily made in Tijuana, these additional photographs, a combination of expansive landscape views and images of people and interiors, are meant to reveal a space that is simultaneously foreign and familiar, much like the border itself.
AUG 20 ~
Center for Creative Photography
If you missed Flowers, Fruit, Books, Bones: Still Life from the Center for Creative Photography while it was at Phoenix Art Museum this spring, it will reopen at the CCP this summer. While many of these 60 still life photographs were conceived for a range of purposes outside of fine art, from advertising images to teaching aids, all make full use of photography’s ability to render rich detail. To deepen the experience, the photographs are paired with short pieces of text – both poetry and prose – that invite visitors into a space of contemplation.
