Sounds of Camden
September 29, 2014 – December 18, 2014
As a sequel to the 2012 exhibition, Visions of Camden, which presented a visual history of Camden, Sounds of Camden will explore the city through its music, poetry, and voices from past to present. The exhibition will present examples of Victrolas and phonographs developed and produced in Camden, visual memorabilia and artifacts, and offer recordings from the company’s vast playlist. You may think you’re familiar with Camden, but you haven’t heard everything yet!
From the Digital Toolbox
January 12, 2015 – February 20, 2015
Computers are ubiquitous in so many aspects of life. Everyone with a cell phone generates digital images, and art students are increasingly interested in media art. Responding to this, From the Digital Toolbox features four artists—Nancy Burson, Tim Portlock, Shuli Sade, Siebren Versteeg—all trained as painters, who have turned to multiple digital technologies to produce a variety of work. Highlight: In the 1970s, artist Nancy Burson worked with engineers at MIT to develop a program which could age the human face. Her patent for The Method and Apparatus for Producing an Image of a Person’s Face at a Different Age was the basis for all later morphing software for computer graphics, and was licensed to the F.B.I., which has used it successfully to locate missing children.
Juvenile In Justice
March 4, 2015 – April 22, 2015
Juvenile-in-Justice is a project by photographer Richard Ross to document the placement and treatment of American juveniles housed by law in facilities that treat, confine, punish, assist, and, occasionally, harm them. To date, the project includes photographs and interviews with more than 1,000 juveniles at over 200 facilities in 31 states in the U.S., from detention, correction, and treatment facilities to group homes, police departments, and courtrooms. The work exists at the juncture of art, social practice, and politics. The content of this exhibition may be difficult for younger grade levels. Please be advised.
