I got this from two lovely ladies at The Lantana Projects, a local nonprofit art residency program, and I’d like to thank them for giving me a heads up on what I’m certain will be a great art show. Lantana previously brought us the works of James Clar, whose works with light beautified South Main.
Sarah, Elizabeth, remember how I told you that a lot of journalists are lazy and will copy and paste from your press release?
Well, I can only loosely be described as a journalist. But lazy fits me to a t.
Lantana Projects presents Mobile an exhibit of work from Ann-Marie James, current international artist-in-residence, opening June 30 at 6 pm at The Medicine Factory in downtown Memphis. James was selected for the residency in late 2005 by the international review board of Lantana Projects. She arrived June 6 and will be in Memphis until July 2.
Ann-Marie James graduated from Central Saint Martins College of Art (London) in 2004 with a degree in Fine Art. She has since begun to establish her practice as a photographer and filmmaker, with works including large-scale photographic installations and video projections.? She has exhibited across Europe, in countries including England, Ireland, France, Portugal, Germany and Spain.
This residency with Lantana Projects marks her first visit and exhibition in the United States. Mobile is the culmination of her month spent living in Memphis and her documentation of the Southern landscape.
I hope people will join me there for what promises to be an interesting evening.
