The Philadelphia Photo Arts Center is pleased to announce Cast, a group exhibition featuring the work of Dru Donovan, Amy Elkins, Tarrah Krajnak, Laurel Nakadate and Pinar Yolacan.  Using the human body and variations of historic and commercial conventions of portraiture, these artists challenge the conceptual constraints of how a portrait functions while addressing issues regarding authorship and control, as well as our stereotypes and perceived senses of beauty.

Reviews:

"One artist here -- the most compelling of the lot -- offers androgyny as an alternative to gender codes. Brooklynbased Amy Elkins photographs two shirtless young men in half-length portraits that mimic historical modes of female portraiture. As we look at these men, we're reminded of a long tradition of Venuses as well as the Greeks' love of a luscious boy. The subject of "Kyle" proves an especially rich muse, his arm crossed over his chest in a gesture suggesting both protection and flirtation. What works about Elkins's pictures is their lack of clear-cut agenda. Yes, they participate in the preconceived -- and sexist -- modes of art history. But they never, ever replicate them."
- Washington Post


"In her series of portraits, Amy Elkins creates an environment and a dynamic that allow us to observe an expression of self. They are portraits of introspection and assertion, of alienation and belonging, of confrontation and surrender. She puts her male subjects into a feminine space, undresses them, and watches them as they come to terms with what they are feeling and experiencing. Then, when they give a clue, through a gesture, or a look in the eye, she clicks the shutter."
- Jimmy Moffatt for NY Arts Magazine


"I first saw Amy Elkins' Wallflower series of male portraits against colorful flowered wallpapers in the project room at Yancey Richardson a year or so ago, and as the months have passed and I have encountered them again in other contexts, they are growing on me. Even though we are not portrait collectors, I am liking the mixture of feminity and masculinity they explore more and more, as well as the subtle openness and vulnerability she has deftly captured." 
- DLK collector


"We pour over women’s faces all the time – they stare back at us compliantly from magazines, posters, and even on the street or in an elevator, accustomed to being looked at, perhaps even taking pride in the attention. But it’s not often that we’re given the opportunity to look into men’s faces in this intimate way. The object of an unrelenting gaze becomes vulnerable – not a traditionally flattering role for a man. Elkins' series of portraits of men could best be described as beautiful rather than rugged or handsome."
- EyeMazing Magazine, Amsterdam


"Amy Elkins portraits of men, [from the series] Wallflowers playfully sets cultural expectations of masculinity in front of floral backdrops. These extraordinarily beautiful images are simple in execution but wholly complex under their surface, often pointing towards a sense of vulnerability that is so frequently culturally masked."
- We Can't Paint


"The underlying component in the exhibit is the evident nostalgia conveyed throughout the work. The ambiguity of our memory is clearly communicated in powerful visual narratives.... [as shown in] the mysterious murkiness of Brooklyn-based artist Amy Elkins’ prints that incorporate text abundant with layered meaning."
- Place, time, house and home (Review of Carnegie Art Museum exhibition)

The Portrait. Photography as a Stage
From Robert Mapplethorpe to Nan Goldin 
Curated by Peter Weiermair. 

July 03 - October 18, 2009 - 

When the history of photography began to unfold with portraiture in the nineteenth century, one’s own image was cause for astonishment, shock, and rapture. Since its discovery, the photographic medium has satisfied people’s desire for their likeness and largely replaced the more demanding and costly painting. Considering the new technologies available today, with which it has become possible to manipulate any image easily, inexpensively, and quickly and to change and improve the appearance of the human body as desired, the role of the portrait as a mirror of the subject’s personality and as a medium of identification has to be aesthetically questioned and recontextualized.

Starting with Robert Mapplethorpe’s formalist studio photography, Peter Hujar’s intimate pictures, and Nan Goldin’s visual diary, the exhibition explores the changes of portrait photography since 1980. Searching for beauty, authenticity, and a personal visual language, artists have since then developed an unconventional art of portraiture encompassing glamour and mise-en-scène, naturalism, snapshot, irony, and documentary objectivity. The selected works combine to form a panorama of today’s image of man, where icons of society appear next to unknown individuals.

Participating artists: Roger Ballen, Tina Barney, Valérie Belin, Dirk Braeckman, Clegg & Guttmann, Anton Corbijn, Rineke Dijkstra, Amy Elkins, JH Engström, Bernhard Fuchs, Alberto Garcia-Alix, Luigi Gariglio, Anthony Gayton, Nan Goldin, Greg Gorman, Katy Grannan, Jitka Hanzlová, Peter Hujar, Jean-Baptiste Huynh, Leo Kandl, Barbara Klemm, Gerhard Klocker, Andreas Mader, Sally Mann, Robert Mapplethorpe, Hellen van Meene, Judith Joy Ross, Thomas Ruff, Stefano Scheda, Beat Streuli, Wolfgang Tillmans
