November Artist-in-Residence: Txutxo Perez

November 3, 2010November 28, 2010

Revolution U

Txutxo Perez is focusing his month-long residency on the concept of revolution. All revolutions need an “office of propaganda” to speak to the masses, to carry the ideas, the hopes, the creed. These offices have been and continue to be created by artisans, master printers, and trained folk artists who have the mission of putting images to various political agendas. Being on the front lines brings a series of physical inconveniences, such as lack of electrical power and transportation of big and heavy presses.

Developed and Undeveloped: Photographic Landscapes

October 9, 2010March 27, 2011

At once powerful and vulnerable, the natural environment is alternately portrayed as an object of adoration and a victim of civilization in Developed and Undeveloped: Photographic Landscapes. The exhibition features a diverse selection of over 35 photographs of the 19th, 20th, and 21st centuries. From the pristine western views of Ansel Adams to the scarred quarries of Edward Burtynsky, the exhibition presents a variety of approaches to framing the landscape, with scenes of unspoiled wilderness contrasted with sites bearing evidence of human intervention.
