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. We would like to thank the lenders for their precious collaboration: Barry Sloane Collection, Edward V. Blanchard Jr., Eileen and Michael Cohen, Bruno Decharme, Antoine de Galbert, John and Teenuh Foster, Galerie Christophe Gaillard, Marion Harris, Institut Métapsychique International, Paris, John Michael Kohler Arts Center, Sheboygan, Galerie Lumière des roses, Montreuil, Kevin O’Rourke, Robert A. Roth, Sacks Family Collection, Julie Saul Gallery, JoAnn Seagren and Scott H. Lang, and Ichiwo Sugino.

It includes contributions by Bruno Decharme, Phillip March Jones, Camille Paulhan, Valérie Rousseau, Barbara Safarova, Sam Stourdzé, Michel Thévoz, Brian Wallis, and Richard-Max Tremblay.

When

5:00pm - 6:00pm

New York Academy of Medicine

Please join The New York Academy of Medicine's Section on the History of Medicine for a special lecture from Dr. Rana Hogarth, "Health Inequities and the Making of Race: A Short History."

This talk focuses on the contributions of physicians who lived and worked in slave societies of North America and the Anglophone Caribbean to the making of race and racial differences. It highlights how, in the production of medical knowledge and the furtherance of the medical profession, these physicians made damaging assumptions about Black people's bodies that still linger with us today. This talk encourages us to consider how legacies of slavery shaped the creation of medical knowledge and the contours of medical education. Finally, it draws attention to the ways our current expectations about health and health outcomes still depend on outdated ideologies of race.

The lecture will be followed by a discussion led by Dr. Andrew Racine of Albert Einstein College of Medicine and The Children's Hospital at Montefiore.

Join Senior Planet and National Literacy Project for an insightful webinar on how to fact check and verify information online

Information is the most fundamental element of democracy. It is the basis for citizens’ understanding of the world around them; how we analyze social issues, assess challenges, determine political priorities, form opinions and evaluate our options. It is, in short, the raw material out of which we make decisions and take informed action. We must move beyond the unhelpful term “fake news” and learn to more precisely identify the many types of misleading, inaccurate and false information that we encounter. Explore motivations behind different types of propagators of misinformation and learn fact-checking basics to help encourage verifying information for ourselves and debunk misinformation when we encounter it. By exploring a deeper understanding of misinformation, you can become less susceptible to it and more likely to prioritize reliable, standards-based sources of news and information.

1:00pm - 2:30pm

David Vaughan was the archivist of the Merce Cunningham Dance Company and author of Merce Cunningham/65 Years and Frederick Ashton and His Ballets. From 2012-2017, Mr. Vaughan held monthly screenings of his favorite dance films and videos from our collection. David passed away in October 2017, and the Jerome Robbins Dance Division continues screenings in his honor with guest hosts.

Harjito's research as a PhD student in Culture and Performance in the Department of World Arts and Cultures/Dance at UCLA examines dance and representation, focusing on how choreography and performance serve as representations of gender, sexuality, national identity and community, and also investigating the embodied and archival representations of the Indonesian dancing body from colonial times to the present.
