Spring 2019 Exhibitions

 

Manuel Alvarez Bravo

January 14 February 22, 2019

"The Man from Papantla" by Manuel Alvarez Bravo

This exhibition features a collection of 15 photographs by noted Mexican photographer Manuel Alvarez Bravo. Alvarez Bravo was a self-trained photographer and is considered among the most important figures in 20th Century Latin American photography. His work revealed a driving interest in representing the cultural heritage of the Mexican people in the face of 20th Century industrialization and modernization. He died in 2002 at the age of one hundred.

Alvarez Bravo's art work will be accompanied by a selection of photographs from current and past Midland College students.

The Man from Papantla (Señor de Papantla)
1934
by Manuel Alvarez Bravo

 

 

In Place: Regina Agu and Shannon Crider

February 28 - April 11, 2019
Opening Reception Thursday, February 28 (time to be announced)

In Place - Regina Agu and Shannon Crider


This exhibition includes two Houston-based artists, both of whom were residents of the 2017-2018 Artist Studio Program at Lawndale Art Center. Regina Agu and Shannon Crider both work across multiple mediums, drawing from pop culture references and lived experiences. They both create alluring and subtly subversive artworks seeking to tell stories that have been otherwise suppressed.

Regina Agu's work is conceptually oriented towards language, history, and representation. She addresses these as they coalesce in contemporary ideas around landscape. Her practice involves research and explorations of "site," including histories and theories of landscape photography, architecture, the built environment, the landscape, environmental justice, and spatial politics - particularly their intersections around communities of color.

Through re-photographing and re-staging stills from television, Shannon Crider's work investigates the impact of contemporary representations of women in our televisual culture. Her two and three-dimensional works employ collage, sewing, and print to construct new spaces that reflect the psychogenic space of female subjectivity in popular culture.

Mission

Our mission is to exhibit exciting works of contemporary art from regional, national and international artists. The McCormick Gallery is dedicated to providing an educational experience for our students and a cultural haven for the Midland Community. We offer students unique insights into artists’ work. Whenever possible, artists are invited to give lectures, critiques, and demonstrations, and we’ve even hosted exhibitions in which students worked directly with professional artists. We strive to make contemporary art accessible and enjoyable to all members of our community. Our programming embraces diversity, supporting all sorts of art from all kinds of artists.

Every year we have a full calendar of group and solo shows including the annual Midland Arts Association Fall Juried Art Exhibition. Each Spring and Fall our Student Art Shows celebrate the creative endeavors of Midland College students enrolled in Fine Arts classes.

Art is an enormous priority for us at Midland College, and we take great pride in this program which began in 1971, even before the campus had a fine arts building.
