“An Unfixed Image: The Photographic Across Media” opens this Wednesday, March 11. The exhibition will explore the nature of the photographic image and its relationship to embodiment as an object. From its inception the photograph has been duplicitous as it has existed as an image and an object, referenced the real and the fictional, and operated indexically and specifically.
The artists in the exhibition—Lothar Hempel, Leslie Hewitt, Elad Lassry, Marlo Pascual, Eileen Quinlan, Mariah Robertson, John Stezaker, Sara VanDerBeek, and Letha Wilson—create works that engage a porous relationship between analog and digital practices while raising crucial questions about visual strategies and the materiality of the photographic image. Working with diverse methods and materials, these works reflect and destabilize photography’s ubiquity.
Panel discussion: 4pm
