This exhibit, curated by BRIC’s Director of Contemporary Art Elizabeth Ferrer, will include work by some 10 photographers, demonstrating the significance of En Foco’s award in extending their artistic practice. Works will include elaborately staged compositions, photos made with historic processes like tintype, wall sculpture based on appropriated images, and images made through varied forms of digital manipulation.

Medium Resistance at Crane Arts
Philagrafika 2010
March 3-April 3 2010
Philadelphia

Medium Resistance presents contemporary works of craft and print that resist old-fashioned distinctions between high art and artisanship. Informed by historical avant-garde practices such as those of the Productivists, Black Mountain College and, more recently, the  Interventionists,  these provocative works reassess the mediums  expressive, communicative, and material possibilities beyond known aesthetic, social, and political boundaries. Vessels and posters, digital images and books, to name just a few examples, straddle the divisions between art, craft, and mass production, strategically exploring each format s relative autonomy and usefulness, its potential for participation and collaboration, communication and dissemination, and aesthetic, social, and technical labor.
