Painter, printmaker, and sculptor, Eric Fischl, emerged in the1980's as one of America's most important figurative painters. His paintings compel the viewer to participate in a world of middle - class suburban ambiguity and drama. In Fischl's engaging and distinctly American canvases narration, sexuality, and psychology are preeminent.

Photographer and installation artist, Kader Attia, will lecture on his work tonight at 7:30 pm at Trustee's Theater.
"Signs of Reappropriation" will feature a site-specific installation of Attia's 2007 "Untitled (Skyline)" series and a newly commissioned body of photographs.
"Untitled (Skyline)" consists of 80 discarded refrigerators painted black and covered in tiny, geometric mirror "windows." This cityscape of customized household appliances addresses the impact of architecture and urbanism on people's everyday lives, and particularly examines the way power is used to oppress populations.
The photographic series explores the relationship between the concrete buildings of Attia's former Parisian neighborhood and a beach in Algiers where he spent time as a youth. Nicknamed Rochers Carres by locals, the beach is covered with huge concrete blocks, and its architecture resembles Baron Hausmann's city plan in Paris. Rochers Carres attracts Algerian youth, yet serves as the ultimate boundary that separates them from Europe and, by extension, their dreams of a better life.
Attia ultimately began to see similarities on both sides of the Mediterranean Sea. The hard existence of the young Algerians reminds him of the struggles of young people in his French neighborhood. The youth in both places express a lack of hope for a better future, a lack of social acknowledgement, feelings of failure and a sense of suffering.
Exhibition curator and SCAD Executive Director of Exhibitions Laurie Ann Farrell said, "The juxtaposition of the oversized photographs taken at Rochers Carres with Attia's 'Untitled (Skyline)' sets up a powerful visual and psychological landscape for gallery visitors to traverse."
She is looking for faculty with different backgrounds who could teach foundation studies, graphic design, photography, multimedia and animation.
MFA graduates are encouraged to apply, and the package includes housing in a compound, return flight and health insurance (no taxes). Please contact Dima for more information (contact below).

Artist sues the A.P. over Obama image
In a pre-emptive strike, the street artist Shepard Fairey filed a lawsuit on Monday against The Associated Press, asking a federal judge to declare that he is protected from copyright infringement claims in his use of a news photograph as the basis for a now ubiquitous campaign poster image of President Obama.
The suit was filed in federal court in Manhattan after The Associated Press said it had determined that it owned the image, which Mr. Fairey used for posters and stickers distributed grass-roots style last year during the election campaign. The photo, showing Mr. Obama at the National Press Club in April 2006, was taken for The A.P. by a freelance photographer, Mannie Garcia.
