CHRISTINA A. WEST: UNSCENE
AUG 26 – DEC 14
Atlanta based artist, Christina A. West, creates immersive, site-specific installations that utilize figurative sculptures and the alteration of space to create psychologically charged environments. West’s figures, which the artist distorts through an adjustment of scale and proportion, are found sitting, standing, kneeling, and crawling. The monochromatic figures, and their relationship to the fabricated interiors in which they reside, provoke subtle feelings of visual and spatial discomfort.

Building on her previous work, West’s AEIVA installation, Unscene, emphasizes the ambiguous space between—between narrative moments, between past and present, between actor and audience. The scene presented is pulled apart with the use of fragmentation, scale shifts, the integration of photography, and strategies that direct viewers through the space.

Before the selfie, before the Polaroid, and even before the photograph, there was the silhouette, a profile portrait made from cut paper. Silhouettes were a hugely popular and accessible form of portraiture in the nineteenth century, offering almost instant images of everyday Americans—women, men, black, white, presidents, and laborers. Black Out: Silhouettes Then and Now explores this previously unstudied art form by investigating its deep historical roots and considering its forceful presence today.

Black Citizenship in the Age of Jim Crow explores the struggle for full citizenship and racial equality that unfolded in the 50 years after the Civil War. When slavery ended in 1865, a period of Reconstruction began, leading to such achievements as the Fourteenth and Fifteenth Amendments to the Constitution. By 1868, all persons born in the United States were citizens and equal before the law. But efforts to create an interracial democracy were contested from the start. A harsh backlash ensued, ushering in a half century of the “separate but equal” age of Jim Crow. Opening to mark the 150th anniversary of the ratification of the Fourteenth Amendment, the exhibition is organized chronologically from the end of the Civil War to the end of World War I and highlights the central role played by African Americans in advocating for their rights.

This exhibition has been organized by the New-York Historical Society. Lead support for the exhibition provided by National Endowment for the Humanities: Exploring the human endeavor. Major support provided by the Ford Foundation and Crystal McCrary and Raymond J. McGuire.

On June 16, 1969, Governor Albert Brewer and members of the Board of Trustees of the University of Alabama held a press conference in Montgomery to announce the creation of a new three-campus University of Alabama System. That September saw the start of the first academic year for the newly autonomous University of Alabama at Birmingham (UAB).

Originating as an extension program for the University of Alabama during the Great Depression and adding the medical campus in 1945, the history of UAB is multi-layered and complicated, by firmly grounded in the landscape of 20th century Birmingham.

Exhibiting over 80 photographs from the UAB Archives, Unfolding UAB pictographically traces not just the history of UAB as an institution but as a community that unfolded within the fabric of Birmingham, forging and building its own unique identity.

//

Co-curated by AEIVA Collections, Exhibitions and Programs Coordinator Christina McClellan and UAB Assistant Director of Historical Collections and Archivist Tim Pennycuff.

CHRISTINA A. WEST: UNSCENE
AUG 26 – DEC 14
Atlanta based artist, Christina A. West, creates immersive, site-specific installations that utilize figurative sculptures and the alteration of space to create psychologically charged environments. West’s figures, which the artist distorts through an adjustment of scale and proportion, are found sitting, standing, kneeling, and crawling. The monochromatic figures, and their relationship to the fabricated interiors in which they reside, provoke subtle feelings of visual and spatial discomfort.

Building on her previous work, West’s AEIVA installation, Unscene, emphasizes the ambiguous space between—between narrative moments, between past and present, between actor and audience. The scene presented is pulled apart with the use of fragmentation, scale shifts, the integration of photography, and strategies that direct viewers through the space.

Before the selfie, before the Polaroid, and even before the photograph, there was the silhouette, a profile portrait made from cut paper. Silhouettes were a hugely popular and accessible form of portraiture in the nineteenth century, offering almost instant images of everyday Americans—women, men, black, white, presidents, and laborers. Black Out: Silhouettes Then and Now explores this previously unstudied art form by investigating its deep historical roots and considering its forceful presence today.

Black Citizenship in the Age of Jim Crow explores the struggle for full citizenship and racial equality that unfolded in the 50 years after the Civil War. When slavery ended in 1865, a period of Reconstruction began, leading to such achievements as the Fourteenth and Fifteenth Amendments to the Constitution. By 1868, all persons born in the United States were citizens and equal before the law. But efforts to create an interracial democracy were contested from the start. A harsh backlash ensued, ushering in a half century of the “separate but equal” age of Jim Crow. Opening to mark the 150th anniversary of the ratification of the Fourteenth Amendment, the exhibition is organized chronologically from the end of the Civil War to the end of World War I and highlights the central role played by African Americans in advocating for their rights.

This exhibition has been organized by the New-York Historical Society. Lead support for the exhibition provided by National Endowment for the Humanities: Exploring the human endeavor. Major support provided by the Ford Foundation and Crystal McCrary and Raymond J. McGuire.

On June 16, 1969, Governor Albert Brewer and members of the Board of Trustees of the University of Alabama held a press conference in Montgomery to announce the creation of a new three-campus University of Alabama System. That September saw the start of the first academic year for the newly autonomous University of Alabama at Birmingham (UAB).

Originating as an extension program for the University of Alabama during the Great Depression and adding the medical campus in 1945, the history of UAB is multi-layered and complicated, by firmly grounded in the landscape of 20th century Birmingham.

Exhibiting over 80 photographs from the UAB Archives, Unfolding UAB pictographically traces not just the history of UAB as an institution but as a community that unfolded within the fabric of Birmingham, forging and building its own unique identity.

“All Aboard!”, calls the conductor, and your family's magical journey to the beautiful North Pole begins! Through the dark night, the North Pole Express makes its way by starlight to the top of the world. On the way, you'll listen to a whimsical Christmas story, sing your favorite holiday carols, and watch out the windows for the bright lights of the North Pole to appear. Upon arrival at the brilliantly decorated home of the Toymaker himself, the elves, Santa, and Mrs. Claus will all board the train to visit your family and to take photos with every child. Be sure to whisper your wish for what you're hoping to find under your tree on Christmas morning! After your special visit with the Christmas couple, you'll enjoy chocolate drinks and a yummy treat - delivered by the North Pole Express chefs. You can dance with the elves, receive a lovely Christmas keepsake, and relax for the music-filled ride back to the Depot. Your North Pole Express adventure will make lasting Christmas memories for you and your family for years to come -- And for even more festive fun, be sure to wear your pajamas for the ride!

Adrienne Retief is a practicing architect and architectural illustrator who also happens to be a hopelessly passionate watercolor painter. She loves to share that passion with others and her particular interest lies in travel sketching and watercolor painting. She believes nothing anchors memories of the experience of a place quite like the act of sketching and painting on location. Art and Architecture is a way for viewers to experience Adrienne's travels through different mediums of her art work including watercolor paintings, charcoal drawings, acrylic paintings, and sketch books. Most of the art work on exhibit as never been seen before by the public.
