Breaking Barriers: Selected Work

December 12-13, 2018
USF Contemporary Art Musuem

USF Contemporary Art Museum is pleased to present the exhibition Breaking Barriers: Selected Work as part of arts programming for military veterans. Breaking Barriers: Selected Work brings together the art of thirteen U.S. veterans and creates a visual platform that changes the culture of the “silent veteran” into that of a story teller and a witness, and which serves to amplify the veteran voice within a larger community. The twenty-six photographs focus on themes of portraiture and personal identity. They were created in an intensive photography workshop led by artist James Reiman (see below), and represent a vast range of photographic experience–from beginners learning to use a camera, to professional photographers accomplished with film but starting fresh with digital technology. Artists in the exhibition are Amy Bagley, Deighton Saint-Cyr, James Alexander, Jayme Williams, John Enderton, Kayla Smart, Larry Busby, Mark Freeman, Mark Giddarie, Marty Kledzik, Matt Dawson, Michael Congdon, and Travis Pendergrass.

Breaking Barriers: Selected Work was a partnership with USF School of Art and Art History and is part of a statewide initiative of museums, Museums on Call, to develop and present arts based experiences for military veterans and their families. Museums on Call is supported, in part, by State of Florida Division of Cultural Affairs, National Endowment of the Arts and University of Florida’s Art in Medicine program.

Veterans, please join photographer Jim Reiman in a series of intensive photography workshops as he introduces the tools, techniques—and what can be explored–through a wide range of weekly portrait focused projects.

This five week series of four-hour workshops is designed for all levels of experience, beginning to advanced, and invites veterans to explore tools and processes in creating their own photographic imagery. Participants will work in studio, digital lab and environmental settings. The series concludes with a personal project and portfolio review. A special showing of selected works from each participant will be exhibited at USF in Fall 2018.

James Reiman is a Tampa-based photographer, designer and educator. Reiman’s personal photographic work often involves themes of masculine iconography, geek culture and science. He also works commercially with a wide variety of clients ranging from actors, models, cosplayers, filmmakers and companies in need of photography, video and design work. He received his BFA in photography/digital imaging from Central Washington University in 2005 and his MFA from the University of South Florida in 2009. James Reiman is currently the lead photography/video instructor at The Art institute of Tampa. Learn more about Jim Reiman at jamesreimanphoto.com.
