Exhibit: Camille Jungman at gallery406

09:00 am to 06:00 pm
Wicks Building (downtown Square, 116 W. 6th St.)
http://www.spectrumstudioinc.com/gallery406.htm

gallery406, inside the Wicks Building on the downtown Square, presents an exhibition of Camille Jungman’s photography. Camille will show two separate but related portfolios of photographs: In the Spotlight and Floaters. Each set of prints depicts dreamlike, amorphous spaces in which two worlds collide: that of the familiar organic world of everyday objects that surrounds us and that of the cold slick advertising world of the mass media.

Gallery is open Monday – Friday, 9 am – 6 pm, and by appointment on Saturdays. Exhibit runs until March 29.

Art Exhibit ‘Naked Spaces: Architecture in Art from the Kinsey Institute Collection’

01:30 pm to 05:00 pm
Indiana University, Kinsey Institute, Morrison Hall 3rd Floor
http://www.kinseyinstitute.org

Drawing on the Kinsey Institute’s permanent collections, Naked Spaces investigates the ways artists manipulate architectural representation to communicate ideas about sex, gender, and the erotic. Architectural form is used by artists working around the globe—and across time—as an invitation to view, but also as a plea for privacy; architectural space is used a framing device as well as screen. The diversity of artworks included in the exhibition creates an opportunity for viewers to consider the role played by the built environment in the construction of their own private and public identities.

The exhibition will include works by Toby Kaufmann, Andrey Avinoff, Michael Fingesten, Herbert Ascherman, Suzuki Harunobu, Clarence John Laughlin, Tom Bianchi, Clifford Raven Ingram, Max Kislinger, Rita Koehler, Emilio Sanchez, Edie Fake, Lehnert & Landrock, Arthur Tress, Félicien Rops, D. Keith Furon, Anne Roecklein, Ronald Searle, and Spencer Tunick.

Guest curator: S. N. Johnson-Roehr, Rutgers University.

Visiting hours are Monday thru Friday, 1:30 to 5 pm. Tours are available for 6 or more people. Call (812) 855-7686 for more information. Guides are provided when one is available.

Due to adult content, visitors should be 18 years of age or older, unless accompanied by a parent or guardian.

IU Cinema Presents: ‘War Photographer’

07:00 pm
IU Cinema (1213 E. 7th Street)
http://www.cinema.indiana.edu/

In 20 years, war photographer James Nachtwey hadn’t missed a single war, and he has probably seen more suffering and dying than anyone else alive. For this Academy Award® nominated documentary, Christian Frei followed Nachtwey for two years into the wars in Indonesia, Kosovo, and Palestine, as well as to other troubled areas around the world. Many view him as the bravest and best war photographer ever. Nachtwey appears as a committed, thoughtful, photojournalist, but also a rather shy person. “Every minute I was there, I wanted to flee. I did not want to see this. Would I cut and run, or would I deal with the responsibility of being there with a camera?” – James Nachtwey. (HD Cam presentation)

Although at war since October 2001, few Americans have seen our wars first hand. Citizens depend on journalists for information about the battles and those who fight them. This series examines three American photojournalists who have used small digital video cameras to provide a more intimate perspective of war than earlier film cameras could. It is sponsored by the School of Journalism and IU Cinema. Special thanks to James Kelly and Dennis Elliott.
