Material Witness: The Object of Photography
Opening Reception: Friday, March 31, 5-8pm
Closing Reception + Artist Talk: Friday, April 28, 5-8pm
Pushed from one side by social media and phone imagery and on the other side by artists who reject straight photography outright, the currents of photography today are more muddied—and more amazing—than ever before. Breaking from the tradition of photography as a passive truth machine, the lens and the film uncompromised, these artists instead let the idea and the image cultivate over time in the studio and beyond.
Collar Works Gallery is pleased to present Material Witness: The object of photography, an exhibition of artists who exemplify the shifting ground under what we now call photography.
