The Center for Art, Design and Visual Culture (CADVC) presents “Image Transfer: Pictures in a Remix Culture,” curated by Sara Krajewski and co-organized by Independent Curators International and the Henry Art Gallery, on display October 6-December 10.
“Image Transfer: Pictures in a Remix Culture” spotlights evolving attitudes toward the appropriation, recuperation and repurposing of extant photographic imagery. Artists, as both producers and consumers in today’s vast image economy, freely adopt and adapt materials from myriad sources. Images culled from the Internet, magazines, newspapers, advertisements, television, films, personal and public archives, studio walls and from other works of art are all fair game. “Image Transfer” brings together artists who divert commonplace, even ubiquitous, visual materials into new territories of formal and idiomatic expression.
Artists featured in the exhibition include Sean Dack, Karl Haendel, Jordan Kantor, Matt Keegan, Carter Mull, Lisa Oppenheim, Marlo Pascual, Amanda Ross-Ho, Sara VanDerBeek, Siebren Versteeg, Erika Vogt and Kelley Walker.
An opening reception will be held on Thursday, October 6, 5-7 p.m., and the exhibition will open for regular hours on Friday, October 7.
Admission to the exhibition is free. CADVC is open Tuesday through Saturday, 10 a.m.-5 p.m. and is located in the Fine Arts Building. For more information, call ext. 5-3188.
