Exhibit: Light/Matter | The Intersection of Photography & Printmaking

Event series runs weekly on Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, and Saturday from Aug 26 to Oct 4, 2017.

Light/Matter is an exhibition curated by Tracy Templeton, Associate Professor in Studio Art at the School of Art and Design (IUB); Walter Jule, Professor Emeritus at the University of Alberta and Ingrid Ledent, Professor at the Royal Academy of Fine Art in Antwerp, Belgium. The exhibition will feature up to seventy works by forty-five artists spanning sixteen countries in Europe, North America, South America and Asia.

Beginning in the mid 20th century, the photo print revolution created a new graphic language through the fusion of photographic imagery and analog print techniques that continues to shape global “visual literacy” in the digital age. Light/Matter marks the first time a major museum exhibition has presented groundbreaking works by several generations of artists who have made significant contributions to the photo-print movement. The exhibition will also serve to illustrate the ways in which cultural factors and traditions have influenced the adoption and evolution of new print technologies.
