Harris Lieberman is pleased to present A Twilight Art, an exhibition that examines ways contemporary artists working in photography respond to issues of photographic process and media specificity.
A Twilight Art attempts to expand thinking about photography beyond what is within photographs to the way photographs are made. Digital technologies are quickly subsuming traditional photographic techniques and the impending obsolescence of many conventional photographic technologies has led to a renewed interest in looking at how meaning is produced though and from image making. A Twilight Art represents a diverse perspective of artists working through these questions, across generations, geographies and through both abstract and representational modes.
The work in this exhibition points towards how the changes in the way photography is practiced have not diminished or narrowed the medium. On the contrary, they have opened up a generative space in which artists are looking deeper into the ways pictures are and have been produced, disseminated and thought about.
The exhibition was organized by Lisa Oppenheim and Jessie Washburne-Harris.
