As part of Exposure 2009: Calgary's Festival of Photography, Newzones to pleased to present Place – a group exhibition of Newzones' photo-based artists.
Featuring Dianne Bos, John Folsom, James Holroyd, Joshua Jensen-Nagle, Sarah Nind, and Colleen Philippi, Place will explore contemporary ideas of space and how it relates to photography. The photograph, after all, is the most common mediator of our memories of certain places. Snapshots, postcards, and home movies have all been used to record locations and the nostalgia that comes along with them.
When it comes to the photograph, however, none of the artists in Place are conventional straight shooters. Instead, photography is mixed with wax or paint and, in some cases, Plexiglas. Some use pinhole cameras, while others explore the potential of the Polaroid. Together the artists in Place present an intriguing dialogue with the conventional understanding of space as mediated through the photographic medium.
