Artists Weekend with James Pearson – to be announced at a later date

The American South comprises almost every form of geography imaginable. From the mountains of Appalachia to rolling hills of the Piedmont, the sandy beaches of the Florida Keys to the weathered islands of the outer banks, the plains of west Texas to the verdant Virginia countryside, there is beauty wherever you look.

South x Southeast is proud to start the coming new year with a celebration of the landscape of the American South. And is equally proud to announce James Pearson, Director of the Southeast Museum of Photography as our curator.

The Southeast Museum of Photography (SMP) is a department of Daytona State College and can trace its roots back to 1979. It is one of sixteen collecting and exhibiting institutions in the United States dedicated to the medium of photography. SMP supports the photographic departments of Daytona State College and the University of Central Florida through a partnership known as the Southeast Center for Photographic Studies. Outside of exhibitions, the programs at SMP include films, workshops, lectures, and can support all aspects of academic research. Their current exhibition, This Is Climate Change, features the work of Benjamin Dimmitt (whose work has graced the pages of SxSE), along with Kirk Crippens and Sharon Harper.

As the director of the Southeast Museum of Photography at Daytona State College in Central Florida, James Pearson utilizes his extensive experience in the curation and coordination of art exhibitions to enhance educational and research engagements. Previously, as the curator of the Wright Museum of Art, Pearson emphasized a break from traditional modes of exhibition and the gallery model. His recent work includes retrospectives on international photographers such as Roger Ballen and Arno Minkkinen, exhibitions exploring the themes of climate change, portraiture, de-colonizing photography and photographic processes, and conceptual photography among others.
