From January 28 to February 22, 2019, Recitation Hall Gallery will be filled with photographs created through various analog development processes including daguerreotype, cyanotype, and wet-plate collodion. While the processes are old, the photographs are in fact very current. The Darkroom in the Digital Age features local contemporary artists whose works engage these historical photographic processes. Through their diverse projects, Justyna Badach, Andrew S. Bale, Jon Cox, Martha Madigan, and Joshua Meier adapt historical techniques that resonate with their choices of subject matter.
This exhibition is curated by doctoral students Meghan Angelos and Danielle Canter. The exhibition reception will take place on Tuesday, February 12th, following an artist talk with Justyna Badach at 5:30pm in Smith Hall, Room 130.
