NEW YORK, NY – November 16, 2016 – Baruch College presents the exhibition Photography: Technology & Art at the Mishkin Gallery from November 16 to December 14. The gallery is free and open to the public.
The exhibition will highlight a variety of photographic processes that reveal the medium’s many facets. With iPhone photographs, Instagram filters, and Photoshop, it is easy to forget the time-consuming processes that were once required for photography. From the earliest moments of photography’s invention in the nineteenth century up until the present day, photographers have developed both techniques and aesthetics. The lenses, the cameras, and the processes for printing have been continually modified. Many practitioners blurred the line between artists and inventors, and the spheres of commerce and art.
Photography: Technology & Art, curated by Emily Ackerman, includes works from the nineteenth century into the twenty-first. Since physical processes often affect the subjects upon which photographers focus, the exhibition will show how photographs change depending on a photographer’s role, type of camera, and printing process.
The exhibition features 26 acclaimed artists, including Walker Evans, Edward Steichen, Cindy Sherman, Nadar, Manuel Alvarez Bravo, Sarah Charlesworth, Lucien Clergue, and Garry Winogrand. For a full description, visit the Mishkin Gallery here.
The Mishkin Gallery is located at 135 E. 22nd Street Manhattan. Gallery hours are Monday – Friday, noon to 5 pm; Thursday, noon to 7 pm. The gallery is free and open to the public. For questions about the gallery, call Sandra Kraskin at (646) 660-6652.
