The Affirmative Project brings together over fifty artists to launch an Arts and Activism movement in Buffalo
“Affirmative ethics is not about the avoidance of pain, but rather about transcending the resignation and passivity that ensue from being hurt, lost, and dispossessed … internal disarray, fracture, and pain are also the conditions of possibility for ethical transformation … This [sic] constructs hope as a social project.”
– Rosi Braidotti (more…)

Buffalo, NY—CEPA Gallery, in partnership with Dean Brownrout Modern/Contemporary, is pleased to announce The Unseen Marion Faller, an exhibition and sale of photographic artwork by artist Marion Faller. The event takes place April 20-July 8, 2018 at CEPA Gallery, 617 Main Street, Buffalo, New York.
Marion Faller (1941-2014) was a photographer and professor of studio photography and photographic history. She taught at Colgate University, Hunter College, Marymount Manhattan College, and, from 1982 to 2006, at the University at Buffalo. Her diverse artistic practice, laced with humor and a social documentarian’s eye, spanned 50 years. It encompassed early black and white work, collage, pioneering xerographic art, and, in later years, full-color large-scale photography capturing public displays of religious customs, cultural traditions, and seasonal events. Through the generations that she instructed and the artists with whom she associated, Faller’s impact and influence on the Western New York community—and the art world at large—continues.
She exhibited widely in her lifetime. Her photographs are held in many important museum collections including the Addison Gallery of American Art, Albright-Knox Art Gallery, Burchfield Penney Art Center, Castellani Art Museum, George Eastman Museum, National Gallery of Canada, and the Walker Art Center.
