Tuesday, September 24, 2019

As part of the current exhibition, Southbound: Photographs of and about the New South, Durham-based photographer Titus Brooks Heagins, MFA, visited Durham School of the Arts to conduct a series of workshops with Amber Santibañez’s visual art high school students.

Heagins, a Duke alumnus (T ’89), is among the more than 50 photographers featured in Southbound, now on view at Duke’s Power Plant Gallery in Durham and the Gregg Museum of Art & Design at NC State. Heagins’ three photos selected for inclusion in the exhibition can be viewed at the Power Plant Gallery.  Learn more here.

This community project was co-sponsored by the Power Plant Gallery and the Forum for Scholars at Duke University, with additional support from Duke Service-Learning. Southbound: Photographs of and about the New South is presented by the Power Plant Gallery in collaboration with Forum for Scholars and Publics and North Carolina State University’s Gregg Museum of Art & Design. In this iteration, guest curator Randall Kenan, author and NC native, organized the many framed photographs of the exhibition around the twin themes of Flux, on display at the Power Plant Gallery, and Home, on display at the Gregg Museum. The full program of events includes slow tours, film screenings, “Sit + Chat” sessions, and FSP@PPG panel discussions that engage with the issues in and around the works of art and explore the topics, places, and styles of Southbound. Southbound: Photographs of and about the New South was organized by the Halsey Institute of Contemporary Art at the College of Charleston School of the Arts in Charleston, South Carolina, and curated by Mark Long and Mark Sloan.
