This event has ended.

The Instant, curated by Katharine Barthelme and Louise Ingalls Sturges, will exhibit 12 contemporary artists who currently use Polaroidphotography as the foundation of their work. Originally, Polaroid was not intended for aesthetic purpose, it reduces artistic control to a selection of the eye and instinct. The artists in The Instant embrace the limitations of Polaroid to create a rare object that is able to maintain an aura of originality unknown to analog and digital. This exhibition will recognize the passing of a significant medium within the history of photography and hopes to secure a place for Polaroid in the encroaching post photographic era.
