Maggie O'Hara (M.F.A., photography, 2015) Exhibition at Jepson Center, July 28-November 5, 2017

Maggie Mullin O’Hara is a multimedia artist from Pittsburgh, PA, currently based in the South; specifically, Columbia, SC and Savannah, GA. Her exhibition I’m Trying To Tell You incorporates the mediums of video, performance, photography, sculpture and installation. The show includes a site-specific sculptural video installation of a yearlong performance piece. The artist asks the viewer to experience, more intimately, these shared vulnerabilities with her. She invites us to endure with her, feel with her, cry with her… for you, for me, for her, for him, for them, for us.
O’ Hara’s work exists as a hybrid form, borrowing from the traditions of the mediums of video, photography, performance and installation. It explores ideas of interconnectedness between the physical body and experiences of psychological balance and imbalance while proposing the possibility of fulfillment through the indeterminate. It challenges the trans-subjective nature of our roles in the experience of the work, as well as the potentiality for indetermination as change — as having the capability to reverse pain into pleasure, or more radically, to collapse distinctions between the two. The work proposes the ultimatum of indeterminacy leading towards an artistic, affective production, and away from any possibility of being limited, distinct or settled.
O’ Hara received her Masters of Fine Arts in Photography from the Savannah College of Art and Design in 2015 and her Bachelors of Fine Arts in Photography from Point Park University in 2013. She currently serves as adjunct Professor of Digital Video and curator/manager of the FAB gallery within the Fine Arts Department at South Carolina State University.
I’m Trying to Tell You is part of Telfair Museums’ #art912 initiative, a dedicated platform to raise the visibility and promote the vitality of artists from Savannah and will be presented in the #art912 lounge space (former Jepson CafĂ©).

Delusional: Jonathan LeVine's Search for the Next Great Artist, Deadline, July 5, 2017

Jonathan Levine Projects is committed to new and cutting edge art, exploring the terrain of the high/low and everything in between. As a youth growing up in Trenton, New Jersey during the 1980s, Jonathan LeVine recognized the appeal of countercultural aesthetics including punk flyers, comics, graffiti and tattoos. In 2001, after years of independently curating at alternative venues, he decided to open a gallery specializing in this nascent art movement. Many people called him and this risky endeavor “delusional”, however, sixteen years later, he’s now the owner of one of the most well know gallery’s in the world and has cultivated the careers of many renowned artists. Jonathan LeVine is now looking for the world’s next great artist and wants to see if YOU have what it takes. Are you delusional enough?

Jonathan LeVine Projects’ first annual art competition is open to artists from around the world, ages 18 and above, of all backgrounds and experiences. After the submission deadline, a selection of artworks will be chosen to be exhibited in Delusional, a group show highlighting the finalists, opening on August 9, 2017. Jonathan LeVine will choose first, second and third place winners.
