Finally - part two on the trip to Nashville. After visiting 21c, we started wandering the streets which is always fun. I mentioned the first Saturday art crawl that happens in several locations around Nashville where there are galleries and that the Frist often has an architectural tour of the building (or so I've heard). The it dawned on me I had no idea what exhibitions were going on. A quick check and there were two exhibitions that looked really interesting. Chaos and Awe: Painting for the 21st Century and Image Building: How Photography Transforms Architecture.
Both shows were quite good, I was obviously more interested in the photography exhibition and there were prints from a couple of photographers I admire so that was a bonus treat. There were several large prints by Hiroshi Sugimoto and smaller prints by Julius Shulman. Those two photographers are a pretty good examples of the wide scope of the exhibition and well worth the price of admission for me. Everything else was pretty amazing too. I'f you'd like to learn a bit more about either of these photographers I can't think of a better way to get a start than Ted Forbes and his YouTube channel The Art of Photography.
I think I'll post to my other blog more about just walking around and the Chaos and Awe exhibit.
