Photography & Materiality Reception
Venue: AS 1.1
January 17 - February 15, 2014
Reception: Friday, January 24, 6:30 p.m. - 8:30 p.m.
Author and curator Susan Bright has discussed the concept of photography and materiality, how contemporary artists are creating "photography that is about photography" using a variety of methods. Digital processes have guided the transformation of photographers' attitudes toward the medium, prompting them to revisit and update modernist experiments, while often maintaining a critical distance. This exhibition seeks to investigate aspects of this contemporary practice. These artists seek to transcend representation, to investigate the potential of abstraction, working in the studio to connect to traditions in collage, painting and sculpture, while often being informed by digital processes.
Curated by Marilyn Waligore.
Monday - Friday 2 p.m. - 5 p.m.
