EVENT: Tuesday, July 23


"Justin Lincoln is the 2013 Summer Artist-in-Residence at Squeaky Wheel. He arrives to Buffalo on July 16, and departs on August 13. During his month in Buffalo, he will be working on The Feedback Loop, an interactive gallery installation that examines our relationships with images and each other, both offline and on the internet and explores how online networks have changed the way we see, think about, and operate in the world around us. Visual and textual data generated by visitors to the gallery and to a related blog will be incorporated into video projections. These projections, as well as the formal layout of the installation, will evolve regularly throughout the month long exhibit. Experience The Feedback Loop and learn about Justin's work - as well as his plans for the residency at this opening reception. The artist will also be in attendance in the gallery throughout the length of his artist residency; visitors are encouraged to stop by during the gallery public hours, Tues-Thurs 1-7pm, Saturday & Sunday 1-5pm. The gallery installation at Squeaky Wheel will officially open to the public on Tuesday, July 23 during an opening reception and artist presentation at 7:00pm. The installation will be on view until August 13." -source

Bruce Jackson - Guard With Snake - Cummins, 1975
Black and white photograph; Courtesy of the Artist
"There are many photographers who are experts in the history and development of the field; Bruce Jackson is a scholar and a humanist who creates images as a connection between teaching and communicating a social activism. The tradition of the photo essay is long established and Jackson’s early work (photography, film and musical recordings) of the 1970’s – in work prisons of the south – is a part of that development. To the extent that it has become part of the Smithsonian’s Folkways recordings.
Jackson’s accomplishments that push the role of photographer further is demonstrated through his recognition. His career started with accolades including a John Simon Guggenheim Memorial Foundation Fellow in 1971 and a nomination for a Grammy in 1974. He has received both the Chevalier, Ordre national des Arts et des Lettres, France (2002) and Chevalier, Ordre national du Mérite, France (2012). These are in addition to the over 82 grants and fellowships that he received from 1967-2012. His work has been included in or the focus of over 41 publications and he has created 4 feature length and 3 short documentaries. The list goes on and includes lectures, reviews and audio recordings." -source
