poster for "Processed: Considering Recent Photographic Practices" Exhibition

This event has ended.

Curated by Hunter alumna and guest curator, Amie Scally, this exhibition considers the recent proliferation of non-representational photography and film within the context of contemporary art—specifically artists who emphasize experimentation and process in their respective practice. The serendipitous aesthetic possibilities that result from experimenting with photographic processes have intrigued many artists over the past century from Lazlo Moholy-Nagy, Man Ray, and Sigmar Polke to contemporary figures such as Wolfgang Tillmans and James Welling. In recent years, there has been an exponential increase in the number of artists who are investigating and engaging with analogue processes and digital parallels in the studio and darkroom. A variety of processes and techniques are employed to create this work, including subjecting photo paper to light and chemicals, and interventions such as scratching, burning, and torching. The result is intriguing works produced ultimately by chance.
