One of the large-scale wall drawings in Sarah Emerson’s exhibition “Are We the Monsters”—on view at Kennesaw State University’s Zuckerman Museum of Art through July 1—appears to be the Atlanta artist’s response to the gendered phrase the “mother of all bombs,” which was used to describe a large-yield explosive deployed for the first time by the US military in Afghanistan last spring.

Nancy Floyd’s daily photographic self-portraits over 35 years situate the artist in her home or work environment, delivering more piquant period flavor. The sections of the project mounted here like giant proof sheets take us from fake wood paneling to a bank of computers, from a young woman with long hair and bangs to a mature adult in a Black Lives Matter T-shirt.

Morgan Alexander | …between the sea and the sky

Morgan Alexander’s exhibition “…between the sea and the sky,” at Berry College’s Moon Gallery in Rome, Georgia, through February 4, is almost stubbornly determined to be misinterpreted.

Lacking explanatory labels, its transience is easily viewed as permanence. A perfect cube of dandelion seeds held together only by compression and gravity looks as enduring as marble. A bowl made of cast salt looks like alabaster.

A photograph is a record of an exact moment fixed in time and delivered to the present. No matter how fresh or innovative, a photograph is always a backward glance. Nothing portrays this more eloquently than Morgan Alexander’s gorgeous wet plate ambrotypes and tintypes which could only be exactly as they are — each a unique image created without a negative. What they are presents photography at its most ephemeral, though each is ponderous with time and laden with history, making it easy to understand why Alexander thinks of them as sculptural objects.

Has 21st-century technology — digital photography, social media, smart phones with cameras — had a similar impact on art and vision? This is one of the questions posed by Selfie: A Contemporary Look at the Self-Portrait at the Chastain Arts Center through August 2.
