> DESCRIPTION

At the same moment that Photography itself has been declared "dead" and "dying", its dismembered and dematerialized corpse is mysteriously reappearing in the central nervous system, the structural body and the re-animating spirit of other practices ---painting, sculpture, architecture, installation. In PERSISTENCE OF VISION, curated and organized by Abigail Simon, three distinct emergent threads in the discourse take shape and questions about the “death” of photography are displaced by meditations on its evolution.

Following the first two episodes, RECOMBINANT NOSTALGIAS and SPECULATIVE TOPOGRAPHIES, AMPLIFIED PHOTOGRAPHIES, will open on August 7 from 6-9, and will feature work by MARLA LEIGH CAPLAN, ERICA LEONE, STACY MEHRFAR, DANA MEIJILSON, SARAH PALMER and CHRIS SCHIAVO, These artists perform diverse strategies of observation and intervention that reconceptualize (Palmer, Leone, Schiavo) and reinvigorate (Caplan, Meijilson, Mehrfar)  what constitutes a traditional photographic practice.
