- February 27
Opening Reception: Saturday, January 30
As part of Exposure 2010: Calgary's Festival of Photography, Newzones to pleased to present 'Perception', a group exhibition of Newzones' photo based-artists.
Featuring Dianne Bos, Franco DeFrancesca, John Folsom, James Holroyd, Virginia Mak, Joshua Jensen-Nagle and Sarah Nind, 'Perception' 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 Perception present an intriguing dialogue with the conventional understanding of space as mediated through the photographic medium.
Featuring: Dianne Bos, Franco DeFrancesca, John Folsom, James Holroyd, Virginia Mak, Joshua Jensen-Nagle and Sarah Nind.
