"Explication: Visual Language in the American Landscape” is a photography exhibition which will be open from March 3rd to March 6th, 2017 at the Oglethorpe Gallery at 400 East Oglethorpe Avenue in Savannah, Georgia and is free to the public.

Who am I?

My name is Tianchu Xu, a graduate student at Savannah College of Art and Design (SCAD). My major in Business Design and Arts Leadership (BDAL). To fulfill the final project of my M.A. program, I will curate a photography exhibition titled “ Explication: Visual Language in the American Landscape ” from March 3rd to 6th at Oglethorpe Gallery, 400 East Oglethorpe Avenue in Savannah, Georgia. This is the first time for me to plan, prepare and curate an art exhibition and I will be responsible for all the details to secure the success of the exhibition.

   

What is the show displayed about?

T here are lots of young artists coming into prominence. The purpose of “Explication: Visual Language in the American Landscape” is to discover artists, to create a platform for their talents, and to offer a chance for them to exert their unique imagination. “Explication: Visual Language in the American Landscape” is a photography exhibition showing two SCAD Photography M.F.A. students -Fred Hirschman and Tianran Qin’ artworks. This exhibition is showcasing the artists’ interpretation of America landscape. The visual language reveals something about the way people view and think of their world. The artists explore overlooked developments in American landscape and reconsider the symbolic signs. The photography drew inspiration specifically from some American sources, such as big-box stores, gas stations, billboards, etc. Seeing American landscape through symbols and concepts, a person does not thereby ignore the relative value and the cultural experience in his life and relationships.

   

What will we need?

This FundRazr online crowdfunding campaign will help me to raise money in order to cover the budget of the exhibition. All the money that is raised from FundRazr campaign will be completely used for the expense of the exhibition. Ideally, I will find the best deals to manage my cost and gain the greatest price including the best space and facilities to present artworks, fancy food and beverage for the opening reception.

The projected budget of “ Explication: Visual Language in the American Landscape ” is $1,227, and the budget is broken down into:

$500 for 4 days Oglethorpe Gallery rental fee

$50 for 50 posters’ printing

$127 for 500 postcards’ printing
