ALICE MAHER: FAIR IS FOUL & FOUL IS FAIR AT THE KATZEN CENTER, AMERICAN UNIVERSITY MUSEUM, WASHINGTON DC 9 NOVEMBER - 15 DECEMBER 2019

The title of this exhibition is taken from the opening chant in Shakespeare's Macbeth, in which the three witches foretell the dramatic events wherein good and evil become confused and all our expectations are confounded. The works of Alice Maher and Aideen Barry each embody the paradox of the soothsayers' words. Maher explores hybridity, mutation and metamorphosis, in which the female body takes centre stage. The exhibition includes wall drawing, video mapping, wood block prints, animations, sculptures, film and multi-screen presentation.

Katzen Center, 4400 Massachusetts Avenue, NW Washington, DC 20016

EDGAR MARTINS IN THE NOVEMBER ISSUE OF THE BRITISH JOURNAL OF PHOTOGRAPHY

Edgar Martins is interviewed about his recent project and book What Photography & Incarceration have in Common with an Empty Vase.

“All the imagery that we associate with prisons works to legitimise a certain idea that we have about incarceration,” Edgar Martins tells BJP, in an interview about his latest project, derived from a Grain commission working with inmates at HMP Birmingham. “So, I thought, ‘How do I overcome this’?” The results are as much an enquiry into photographic representation as they are about prison.
