Andrew Kreps Gallery is pleased to present To Be Determined, a group show centered around a generation of artists whose work stretch the limits of photography. Portraiture and self-portraiture, archiving, and typology, as well as free-form fiction are at the core of their exploration of the medium.
The selection of artists, some of whom would not consider themselves to be solely photographers, have interrogated the medium, and expanded its conventional definition. When looking at the group, one may question whether there is indeed a circumscribed, or unified practice of photography. But while utilizing strategies that diffuse its understanding, this group of artists can be unified by their focused engagement with their subject matter.
To Be Determined will be on view from January 24th - March 7, 2009. A reception will be held for the artists on Saturday, January 24th from 6pm to 8pm at 525 West 22nd Street. For further information or press inquiries please contact the Erin Somerville, via firstname.lastname@example.org.
