Hamilton College’s Wellin Museum Presents “In Context"
Sunday February 2nd, 2014 at 11:00AM
until Sunday July 27th, 2014
“In Context: The Portrait in Contemporary Photographic Practice” brings together the work of 13 conceptual artists whose practices address an underlying sociopolitical agenda as well as photojournalists and social documentarians who utilize conceptual strategies to subjectively shape the portraits they create. The convergence of these approaches yields work that carefully balances aesthetic and political goals to frame important social issues in a contemporary manner. The show, which is open until July 27, is curated by Assistant Professor of Photography Robert Knight. Featured photographers include Magali Corouge, Chris de Bode, Laura El-Tantawy, Ulrich Gebert, Jim Goldberg, Mishka Henner, Tom Hunter, Alfredo Jaar, Sharon Lockhart, Taryn Simon, Alec Soth, and Mikhael Subotzky & Patrick Waterhouse.
