professor ragland exhibits work in houston, tampa, chicago

Mar. 30, 2024



Installation views of Mapping Perspectives at Throughline, Houston—one of three exhibitions featuring Professor Ragland’s work this spring. 

Works by Assistant Professor Jared Ragland are on view in concurrent exhibitions this spring in Houston, Chicago, and Tampa.  

The first, Mapping Perspectives, is on view through March 30 at Throughline in Houston. The exhibition is held in conjunction with the biennial photography festival FotoFest Houston and juried by Samantha Johnston, Executive Director & Curator of the Colorado Photographic Arts Center (CPAC). The theme of this year’s FotoFest is “Critical Geography,” which seeks to re-examine traditional Western and historical understandings of geography while expanding these investigations to new realms. Mapping Perspectives explores power structures, inequalities, and dominant ideologies within and across marked boundaries, and features an image from Ragland’s ongoing project, What Has Been Will Be Again

Another image from What Has Been Will Be Again is featured in Context 2024 at Filter Photo in Chicago. Context 2024 is Filter’s tenth annual survey exhibition of contemporary photography, and this is the second year in a row Ragland has been selected for the show. Context 2024 features works by 23 artists and was juried by Sarah Kennel, the Aaron Siskind Curator of Photography and Director of the Raysor Center at the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts. The show is open through April 27. 

Meanwhile, two images from Ragland’s lyrical documentary project, Snowbird, is included in Just as Your Ship's Drifting in They're Pushing Out the Tide at TEMPUS VOLTA in Tampa, on view through May 2. Juried by Jenal Dolson, Just as Your Ship's Drifting in They're Pushing Out the Tide showcases works from eight artists of a variety of backgrounds and mediums that explore themes of uncertainty, resilience, and change. Tempus Projects is one of the premiere non-profit, artist-run galleries in the American South.
