Organized by ICP Curator Carol Squiers, What Is a Photograph? explores the intense creative experimentation in photography that has occurred since the 1970s. Conceptual art introduced photography into contemporary art making, using the medium in ways that challenged it artistically, intellectually, and technically and broadened the notion of what a photograph could be in art. A new generation of artists began an equally rigorous but more aesthetically adventurous analysis, which probed photography itself - from the role of light, color, composition, to materiality and the subject. Click here to check all the photographs and the artists involved in the exhibition - which will be on at the International Center of Photography till May 4.
Above some works of Sara Cwynar, a New York based artist who - among others - is taking part at the exhibition The New Beauty of Our Modern Life at the Higher Pictures in NY. Sara and the artists in this exhibition represent a node in an expanding network of post-everything practitioners. Recognizing the flexible nature of images and materials, anything from a font to a floor tile can act as a site of potential intervention. Everything is information: information synthesized becomes material and all of this happens at breakneck speed. One gets the sense that anything is up for grabs. The resultant works represent a shift in how we perceive ourselves and the world around us. They are the product of products, yet they are more handmade than readymade - elements are bent, scraped, pinned, sliced, smashed and smeared into shape.
