Athens, Ga. – Julian Cox, curator of photography at the High Museum of Art in Atlanta, will be juror for the First Annual Juried Student Exhibition in the University of Georgia Lamar Dodd School of Art. An opening reception for the exhibition, on view through Nov. 10, will be held Friday, Oct. 23, from 5-7 p.m. on the first and third floors of the art school.
This is the first time that a well-known guest will curate an exhibition consisting entirely of student work in the art school. Both undergraduate and graduate students spanning all disciplines have been invited to submit works for consideration.
“I am looking forward to my visit to UGA and keenly anticipate seeing the work of the student body,” said Cox, who will begin evaluating the student work on Oct. 20.
Cox has worked at the High Museum since April 2005 and was associate curator in the department of photographs at the J. Paul Getty Museum in Los Angeles. He is a co-author of Julia Margaret Cameron: The Complete Photographs. Cox has also worked at the National Museum of Photography, Film and Television (now the National Media Museum) in Bradford, England, and the National Library of Wales, Aberystwyth.
“The exhibition is a wonderful opportunity for our students to submit their work in a juried environment,” said Georgia Strange, director of the Lamar Dodd School of Art. “Having a distinguished guest curator of Julian Cox’s stature introduces a critical element to the exhibition that benefits our students as well as the audience for their work.”
The Lamar Dodd School of Art is located at 270 River Rd. on the UGA campus. The exhibition will occupy Galleries 101 and 307 on the first and third floors of the facility, and will be on view Monday through Friday, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. through Nov.10.
