Beyond the Frame: A Contemporary Exploration of Mixed Media Photography

January 28, 2023 - March 4, 2023

Exhibition Dates: Saturday, January 28 – Saturday, March 4, 2023
Exhibition Reception: Friday, February 10, 7-10PM

The Torpedo Factory Art Center presents Beyond the Frame: A Contemporary Exploration of Mixed Media Photography which will be on view in Target Gallery in winter of 2023. The goal for this exhibition is to highlight how artists are experimenting with what photography is capable of beyond its traditional framed presentation on the wall. This group exhibition was juried by Siobhan Rigg, artist and professor at George Washington University’s Corcoran School of the Arts and Design.

 

About the Juror

Siobhan Rigg is an Associate Professor of Studio Arts and currently also serves as Program Head of Design at the George Washington University’s Corcoran School of Arts & Design . Rigg is a multidisciplinary artist, teacher, and writer whose creative and research interests center on social and environmental micro-histories. Their work is concerned, most immediately with the ways toxic legacies are distributed within the built environment, and more broadly, with theoretical and material explorations of governance and land use. Rigg teaches across the areas of studio arts, time-based media, and social practice at the undergraduate and graduate levels.
