Viewfinder arts exhibition - until 25 May
Published Thursday 3rd May 2012
The University of Northampton’s Avenue Gallery presents Viewfinder, an exhibition which brings together a group of artists united by an engagement with the photographic image, with the aim of generating a dialogue between digital and traditional practices.
Over the past year, arts partnership brook & black, Paul Coldwell, Nicholas Devison, Edward Dimsdale, Michael Evans, Johanna Love and Mark Shaw, have exhibited their work together under the Viewfinder name - both nationally and internationally. The exhibition now returns home to one of its co-funders, The University of Northampton.
The artists in Viewfinder produce work in a variety of print media that explores the nature of photographic representation within an increasingly digitised environment. Formally diverse, each artist engages with ideas concerning the contingency of perception, dislocation of place, interventions and disruption of meaning.
In the catalogue that accompanies the exhibition, Professor Paul Coldwell describes how:
Together, the works of these artists form a cohesive exhibition, bound by a common obsession and questioning of the photographic image and how through digital technology, the photograph once fixed has become infinitely malleable.Professor Paul Coldwell
