Q.


The FORUM Gallery is extremely pleased to present PholoNominal '94, an exhibition examining a cross-section of approaches to both the content and methods of contemporary photography. Last spring we issued a "Call for Artists" to local, regional, and national artists, galleries, museums, and publications. That call generated 2,300 submissions from approximately 250 artists from across the United States

~

and Canada. As is the gallery's standard policy, submitting anists were not charged

Q)

entry fees and the entry process was open to all anists producing photo足 graphically based pieces (however, we

m

C m"'"

did encourage innovative approaches to 足

both form and content). -:- This years _ submissions were carefully reviewed by Charles A. Wright, Jr., an independent curator formerly associated with Hallwalls in Buffalo, New York, and

ArtiSL~ Space in New York City. Mr.

Wright is currently a graduate student in the Visual and Cultural Studies Program at the University of Rochester. Mr. Wright chose work by twelve artists to be included in this year's show. -:- Each year a different person has been invited to select the works to be included in PboloNominal. The selection of Mr. Wright as our 1994 juror

continues that tradition. Past curators have included Carlos Gutierrez-Solana , director of Artists Space in New York City, Susan Krane, director of Modem and Contemporary Art at the High Museum of Art in Atlanta, Georgia, and Sandy Skoglund, internationally recog足 nized artist. Each curator has selecred an exhibition with a uniquely different character---{)ne that is defined by the range and quality of submissions as well as by the aesthetic predilec足 tions of the person selecting the work. -:- We are grateful to Charles for his curatorial commitment to this project and to the twelve participating artists for the resounding power of their individual artistic statements.


What's in a name' Although her placement within the Modernist literary canon may be highly suggestive, the impetus for such a query is not solel y to invoke Genrude Stein. I ask th e question, however, in order to come to terms with the task-or rather, the challenge-set to me as a juror for this year's Ph%Nomirwi exhibition: to delimit a frame for an address of the conceptual fissures and contradi cti ons that have influenced the selection process. For it is the act of naming prefigured in th e term "nominal" of this annual series' title that (along with its derivations) begs

""hat"s ina narTIe?

the question. Within the past two decades, photography has

held a precariou sly privileged position in dehates regarding the communicative efficacy of art work in generJI: either in alignment with trJditional art forms (painting and sculpture, in particular) and therefore associated with Modernism , or as a fOlm of Postmooernis[ critiqu e which seeks

[0

question ou r inherited Enlightenment assumptions of artistic authenticity and originality

as well as iLS institutiona l placement. This contest of ascription (of naming) in pho[()graphic prdctice not only, I think, pemlea tes much of the work presented here, but also raises significant consequences for various fonns of curdtorial practice of which the juried show is, in my estimation, the most curious genre. Like my predecessors in this endeavor, as juror the objective is not only to nominate artists to he exhihited, but by extension to present a judgment on, to risk naming, contemporJry photogra phy at this historical juncture. Yet, the authoritative discomfort that inheres to this prospect requires a fonn of skept ica l engagement with how art and photography have been historically configured and, in tum, named. Indeed, the breadth of that history was manifest in the diversity of work submined for consideration. During th e review rrocess, it became apparent that hoth I and each artist anemrted to struggle with a sim ilar question: What is entailed in a reconciliation of previous inscriptions of pholOgraphy-as-art, esrecially in light of its theoriza ti on in the last few years?

The Oxford English Dictionary prOVides a numher of definitions of the word nominal. Yet there <Ire two \vhich appear to he panicularly gennane to this discussion. [n the first sense nominal rert<lins to that "ex isting in name only, in distinction to real or actual; merely named, stated and expressed without reference to reality or fact; with limiting words, as mere(ly, only, but) or with imrlication of these denoting an entire contrast to something real or substantial." Second, it "contain[s] explicit mention of a name; consisting of, containing a set of names; giving the names of persons dealt with; [to] assign to a person hy name.'" On the face of it, this laner sense affords a view to the product of my so-ca lled judicial activity in this project, to present a collection of names assigned to art objects presented in the gallery. It might also be said that each of th e 261 hodies of work that were submined for consideration for Ph%Nominal '94 function as crea tive inscriptions in this naming of photography: each embodying a synthesis of critical and aesthetic rositions on rhOlographic practice articulated (named) in their work. It is, however, the fonner sense thal signals a profound torsion within the curatorial authority of the juror and within the medium of photography itselF, both of which initially assume an unproblematic relation to the real-to [act-\'"hich according to ou r first sense, exists in name only. I make this claim, in order to toreground hoth the 3nifice of curatorial practice and the evidential fallacy endemic to photography, for they function as iIIusolY stand-ins for the rea l or factual. On the one hand, as <I kind of naming of common tendencies among a group of artists, the claims to interpretive transparency rrotTereci by any exhibition is necessarily a construct ion, an interpretive fiction . On rhe other hand, as an indexica l image, the photograph presents itself as a telling of a real circ umstance, a Glrturing of ohjects and events that, as names for the conditions depicted, are also imrlicmed as illusory surrogates, meciiated by the photographer'S social, political, and

..


aesthuic interest. This is not a disavowal of my responsibility for the choices made in the selection of works for exhibition. And it is the sustained commitment to and responsihility to these questions that was m:mifest in the artists' work I encountered for selection. It is. however, an attempt to establish a congruence betw<.:en two practices (curatorial and photographic) that have been the objects of and mediums for a sustained historica l and philosophical critique that has sought to distinguish Modernity and Postmodernity.

We should be reminded that th<.: pn:sentation of photography as art is a relatively recent phenomenon anci has only come into preeminence roughly within the last thirty ye'lrs. While, dUling the nineteenth century, photographic t<.:chnology was endorsed by the progress center discourses of the industrial revolution, it was primaril y championed as an apparatus (a tool) for questioning the veil' tenns by which the world could be perceiv<.:d and understood. TIle veil' reprodu ctive nature of photograrhic technology, it was thought, would even alter, if not totally render, the art work and all ib material and icieologiealtrappings superfluous.

In marked contrast , the confluence of photography and an afforded by institutional embrace of the medium in the 1970s instigated stringent clebate among uitical art theorists (among others, Douglas Crimp and Abigail Solomon-Gadeau) regarding the consequences of this maneuver by museums and galleries. Arguahly, it was this reitkation 01' photogI<lphy as a contemplative site for aesthetic reflection that ",vas contested. Having at once atrained the privilege which had pr<.:viously heen ~ssigned to painting and sculpture. photography was absorhed by the ideologicall y weighted discipline of art histolY, with it:; fascination for notions of artistic mastery and authentiCity, and therefore pmmpted an evacuation ofthe medium's crit ica l function that had been ascribed to photography in opposition to the work of art. For these critics, Walter Benjamin's seminal 1934 essay, "The Work of Art in the Age of Mechanical Reproduction," which sought to question all's historica ll y embedded cultie rclation to viewer and audience, fOOlled the COOlerstone of the contemporalY argument. There is an emancipatory tone to Benjamin's work which sees photography, and particularly cinema, in the service of the masses: as a tool through which the proleta rian classes might foreswll the bourgeois pretenses to which works of art had been associated; instead, photography would produce a kind of democratiZing effect hI' dissolving the an work's rarefied placement in tradition. According to Benjamin, rhe advent of photographic technol ogy affecteci a displacement of

charles a. ""right, jr.

what he called the "aura" of the work of an. As defined by Benjamin, the aura as a "unique phenomenon of distance howeve r close it may he iand itJ represents nothing but the fonnation of cult va lue of the work of art in categories of space and time. "l This peculiar feature of the aura allowed that work to Ix: perceived under the shroud of creativc mystification; the work of the anist afforded a veneI<lble condition predicated on uniqueness, mastery, and vision. For Benjamin, photographic technology would supplant this circumstance

and galleries in the 1970s that provoked Douglas Crimp

ask, "How is it that phO[ography has

suddenly haci conferred upon it an aura"" 111is institutjonal inscription of photography for co ntemporary critics at the time seems to constitute nO[ only a relinquishing of the critical potential of the meciium but that elevati on of photography-as-<1n was a regressive adoption of the Modernist tradition: once the museum had named phO[ography as a so-called legitimate object of an historical study, it would serve as an instrument of the same internalized formalist mystifications and dogmas that had become familiar to other an fonns, panicularly painting. Climp recognized the museumification of photography as an emphatic obfuscation of the critical possihilities presented in photography's inherent ability to question the very structures that burrressed the edifice of the Modernist tradition as suggested hy Benjamin's prognosis for th e auratic an work. The bestowa l of a kind of equal time for photography within the museum produced, for Crimp, an oven

Staking a close affinity with Benjamin's analysis, however, Crimp and others sought to recuperate the criticalli.mction of photography, suggesting that although it might have been instirutionally appropriated , its representational efficacy might still be employed to prohlem:1tize the very material and ideologica l prejudices th at are a by-product of the 3uraric inSCription of photography. In delineating an epistemological break with that past, however, Crimp proposed an alternative perspective for photographic practice, one [hat could actively and productively reinterpret the stru crural mechanisms which insisted on the presence of th e au ra : ra ther than lament alignment or absorption, a postmodernist photographic practice wou ld assume its critical position through its proximity to the auratic: to expose the rirualistic fallacy in tandem with the institution intent on its mainte1l3nce.

It is a kind of second order displacement of that aura: w hile Benjamin perceived photographic technology il<;elf as the means for the dissolution of the aura , photography-as-an (for contemporary critics) would si111ultaneously expend that disp!acerne lll funher outside a total investment w ith the aura . Indeed, such a maneuver alters th e cond itions of auratic experience, both in tenns of how that photographic art ohject could be presented as well as its relation to the viewer. This resistan ce

.ft'


to auratic inscription, at the time, found its primary exemplars in the work of an emerging group of anists (most notably Cindy Shemlan, Richard Prince, Sherrie Levine and Martha Rosier, among others) whose address on photography's representational potential as critique produced a conceptual suppression of the aura, to redress quest ions of artistic authenticity and originality.

In the ahermath of these developments, how is photography to he named? Is it possihle to question photography within the institutional frame proposed by this ex.hihition? Cenainly, the challenge met hy many of the anists included in this year's exhibition have been influenced in some way by this critical legacy. Yet, today, how can anists and curators negotiate their relationship to this most recent renaming of photographic practice? Now that the linkage between photography and art has been institutionally established, what modes of address allow for the maintenance of photography's criticality) While one might recognize the value of the successive displacements of the aura, it remains nonetheless present. To look to Benjamin's and Crimp's essays once more, one nOles that with the appearance of photography the aura is not necessarily eliminated, but recedes or is displaced. The realization of these cha nges, I think, is evident in the concenedly self-conscious practice of photography among th e artists selected for this year's

PhotoNominal or by myself as a juror. Indeed, are nOl the very circumstances of jurying this exhibition a reinscription of an aurdtic experience, one which assumes that through my selection of artists some rela tion to the aura must necessarily be maintained? Despite my olYn desire to effect a displacement of the 3uratic double-bind, I might question the historical and philosophical implications of the actiVity: at once attempting to remain critical of and within the traditions that circumscribe photographic and curatorial practice, To even venture to ask, who am I to judge, to name) 1 do not believe that to broach such a question is antithetical to the types of issues and concerns engaged by the anists presented in this exhibition. The strength of the work I have selected for this show is in its unWillingness to take photography for granted,
