UNM Art Museum, 72.648. FRIDAY OCTOBER 16 EXHIBIT OPENING 5 :30, University Art Museum, College of Fine Arts. Exhibit through March 12, 2016. Vernacular in Place: Old and New Topographic Photography, curators, Miguel Gandert and Chris Wilson Old. Starting in the 1600s, painters and later photographers of romantic landscapes composed picturesquely balanced views of nature, punctuated by a classical ruin or snippet of rural life. Yet from the invention of photography in France in 1839, some photographers instead surveyed city panoramas or walked its streets reveling in the everyday. This exhibit first samples this canon of land- and city-scape photography as taught at UNM by historian Beaumont Newhall and collected by founding museum director Van Deren Coke in the late 1960s and 1970s. New. Amid the counterculture and anti-authoritarian zeitgeist of these years, a younger generation—many UNM students and faculty—overturned the canon of landscape photography. Those assembled in the New Topographics exhibition of 1975 and kindred artists turned their cameras on gas stations, industrial parks, and the edge of suburbia building into the desert. Their cool, deadpan, ironic, yet loving embrace of the contemporary landscape resonates in the work of photographers to this day. REPEAT SCREENING OF FILMS ABOUT J. B.

Jackson, Editors, Janet Mendelsohn and Chris Wilson, editors; contributors, Douglas Adams, Robert Calo, Timothy Davis, Miguel Gandert, Paul Groth and Helen Lefkowitz Horowitz; publisher, George F. Thompson. Exhibit Opening Photographic Notes on the Road: J. B. Jackson, 1955-1989, curator, Jordi Ballesta. Exhibit through November 11 The J. B. Jackson Collections at the UNM Center for Southwest Research contain manuscripts, talks, reading notes, letters and annotated slides. However, the only example of Jackson making field notes is a unique field diary written during a 1957 trip through Virginia, the Carolinas and Georgia. In the absence of other field notes, the 5,500 Kodachrome and Ektachrome slides in the collections suggest that he preferred these photographic notes to written notation. While Jackson also made drawings in the field, his much more numerous slides provide the primary source for apprehending his way of studying landscapes. This exhibition focuses on Jackson’s collecting and recording methods. The images he chose to capture during brief roadside pauses while traveling by car and motorcycle reveal his brand of empirical and itinerant geography. Excerpts from the 1957 journal, four of his drawings, and maps recreating his travel routes will help contextualize his field slides, sixty-six of which appear as prints in the exhibition. J. B.
