Complex Uncertainties opens

September 30
Jepson Center,
207 W York St
Savannah, 31401 United States

From the rise of America as a world superpower after WWII—and with it, a distinctly individual and identifiably “American” approach to artmaking—to the proliferation of technologies that homogenize American culture today, artists have always been at the forefront of social response. Complex Uncertainties is an evolving exhibition grounded by works in Telfair’s modern and contemporary collection that sheds light on these responses and reveals some of the ways in which historic events challenge artists to explore unknowns, construct narratives, and react to power.

The Tsars’ Cabinet opens

September 30
Jepson Center,
207 W York St
Savannah, 31401 United States

The Tsars’ Cabinet illuminates a period of sociopolitical change and comments on the fascinating personal lives of the members of the Romanov dynasty through a display of superbly crafted objects. Spanning 200 years of Russian history—from Peter the Great in the early 18th century to Nicholas II in the early 20th century—these objects, used both publicly and privately by the Romanovs, rise above functionality into the realm of art through ornate stylistic expression, exemplary craft, and thematic explorations of nationalism and militarism.

Jennifer Levonian: Shake Out Your Cloth opens

September 30
Jepson Center,
207 W York St
Savannah, 31401 United States

Jennifer Levonian’s work transforms the fabric of the everyday into the fantastical—or at the very least, the hilarious. In the exhibition Shake Out Your Cloth, Levonian presents a recent cut-paper animation titled Xylophone, as well as three quilts loosely inspired by the protagonist of the video. Painstakingly crafted from hundreds of individual watercolors, her stop-motion animations often feature a character trying to break free from social rituals and clichés.

Watershed exhibition opens

October 14
Jepson Center,
207 W York St
Savannah, 31401 United States

Watershed explores the increasingly fraught relationship between humankind and the environment, giving photographic aid to a concern that has reached global significance in recent years. Since the 1970s, landscape photographers have embraced this new relationship with the natural world, marking a firm split from the pristine worldview touted by midcentury landscape photographers like Ansel Adams. Displaying works that evidence the undeniable human impact on the earth, these photographers reveal the landscape as an activated space—one that is imprinted by mankind and marked by social performance.
