American Folk Art Museum

The exhibition PHOTO|BRUT is a continuation of the American Folk Art Museum’s commitment to champion the works of academically untrained artists—this time with a focus on the ever-changing field of photography, the frontiers and accessibility of which expanded proportionally with the invention of portable and affordable cameras.

PHOTO|BRUT provides the first international glimpse into this fecund territory, which has received little attention until recent years. This exhibition welcomes the substantial art brut photography collection of French filmmaker Bruno Decharme, which has already expanded and diversified since its presentation at the Rencontres de la Photographie d’Arles in 2019. The current selection speaks to Decharme’s subjective collecting activity that brought him—without the parameters of a historical framework—from one discovery to another. The exhibition is complemented by the museum’s holdings, as well as by artworks treasured by American collectors and public organizations.

The exhibition unites more than four hundred early and recent works by forty artists—some recently unveiled, discovered postmortem, or on occasion brought into dialogue with contemporary art, as works by Marcel Bascoulard and Lee Godie have been. This selection, typical of the heterogeneous typology of photography, encompasses a wide spectrum of creations: Aside from traditional photographs, it also gathers collages made from printed materials, artworks that relied on the photographic process, and photographs that were never developed, such as slides and digital images.

To expose relationships between these various, inimitable artistic postures, PHOTO|BRUT is organized in four loose yet interconnected sections, probing themes of gender expansiveness, intimacy, image appropriation, and conjuring practices that seek connections to the imperceptible. These profound bodies of work are often process-based, subversive, and pluridisciplinary. As art historian Michel Thévoz observes, these creators “use the camera to play against type, by making their daily life an unreality or making their chimeras hyperreal. They use photography in spite of or beyond its presumptive objectivity, to imbue fantasy with the stamp of realism or, inversely, to sublimate an ordinary subject.”

Curators: Valérie Rousseau, PhD, Senior Curator, and Bruno Decharme in collaboration with Barbara Safarova, Sam Stourdzé, and Paula Aisemberg.

This exhibition is co-produced by the American Folk Art Museum, abcd, and the Rencontres de la Photographie d’Arles.

Intensive Workshop: Armenian Needle Lace

Museum of Arts and Design

Online

Price

$20 general, Free for Members and Patrons

When

12:00pm – 2:00pm

Museum of Arts and Design

Join MAD Artist Studios resident Emma Welty in creating a delicate needle lace strawberry (known as “yelag” in Armenian). Armenian needle lace is a knotting technique made with simply a needle and thread. Because it is made with lightweight and commonly found materials, it is a craft that has survived the forced displacement of many generations of Armenians. Over the last century, the craft of Armenian needle lace has been painstakingly preserved within communities of the Armenian-American diaspora through intergenerational instruction, how-to books, exhibitions, and, in recent years, video tutorials. Limited to only 12 participants, this intensive online workshop aims to be a link in that chain of intergenerational craft. 

Ticket holders will receive an email 24 hours in advance of the program with instructions for accessing the workshop on Zoom. 

SUGGESTED MATERIALS 

  • Thread of your choice, but consider the following:  
    • The thread should be very strong (usually cotton) and thin enough to thread your needle, but not so thin that it strains your eyes.  
    • Emma does not recommend embroidery floss that can be easily untwisted. Instead, choose a thread that with a fairly tight ply so you don’t accidentally pierce the needle in between strands and create a tangle. 
    • Emma will be working with a crochet thread like this that is considerably thicker than sewing thread. 
  • Needle of your choice: 
    • The needle should have a big enough eye for your thread of choice.  
    • For thicker threads, Emma recommends a tapestry needle  
    • If you are concerned about threading needles or are more comfortable with a smaller gauge needle, a needle threader always comes in handy  
  • Scissors 
  • Optional: Workshop attendees are invited to bring in an heirloom or meaningful textile to share at the top of the class (especially if you have a piece of needle lace in your collection!)

New York Society for Ethical Culture

A unique outlier in many respects, Ethical Culture has allied itself and been a home to many philosophical partners over the years, including humanism, free thought, progressivism, religious liberalism, agnosticism, atheism and so forth. Adherents to these belief systems have found a home because of Ethical Culture’s emphasis on deeds above creeds and its work towards many issues common to liberal and progressive agendas. Despite these similarities, Ethical Culture is also radically different than these beliefs. Had Adler continued living into the present age, how would he have applied the Ethical way of life to modern environmental and societal challenges?

Curt Collier is the Interim Leader of the Ethical Culture Society of Bergen County, and has served as Leader of three other Societies during his nearly 20 years of service. Collier is also the National Youth Program Director for Groundwork USA, an organization created by the National Park Service and the EPA to help raise the capacity of communities to deal with local environmental challenges. He has created a number of programs with federal partners and supporting agencies to create environmental job training, resume building experiences, and career pipelines for diverse youth of color in multiple states.
