On Saturday, April 25, the gallery will open with an exhibition entitled "Conceptual Photography from the 60's and 70's".
The show will examine conceptual photographic practices as they evolved in the United States as well as in Europe from the 1960's through the mid-1970's. At a time when many artists began to embrace a range of media to express themselves, the use of photography was reexamined. Rather than record or aestheticize nature and the modern condition as did many of the great photographers during the earlier part of the century, photography now became a tool to express and document various conceptual approaches. Many of the artists whose work is included in this exhibition share a common interest in performance as well as in sculpture. Another common thread among these artists is their investigation into the structure and functions of language.
