Museum Of Contemporary Photography Free Admission Monday

Free Admission Monday from 10am to 5pm at Museum of Contemporary Photography - see INFO below. Captured Earth presents works by artists who create works in photography and installation that use elements from nature to explore place, ecology, and the material and mystical qualities of the land. Depictions range from site-specific performances, including Tarrah Krajnaks documentations of her nature-centered rituals using rocks and plant material, and Alan Cohens walking meditations on the equator. Other artists use natural elements to create experimental process-based works, such as Jeremy Bolens prints produced from film developed in a polluted river or Barbara Cranes photographic transfers of tree bark, leaves, and fungi she gathered at her Michigan cabin retreat. Others attempt to convey things so confounding that they cannot be contained in an image, such as Penelope Umbricos 8,146,774 Suns From Flickr (Partial) 91010, that presents an assemblage of photographs of sunsets from one day found on a photo sharing website to underscore the universal human attraction to capture the suns essence. Collectively, the exhibition shows ways artists grapple with creating visual language to express their connection to the earth and its magnitude. More Info below.
