ArtSlant - Recently added en-us 40 Barbara Astman - Corkin Gallery - May 6th - May 31st <p><br class="Apple-interchange-newline" />Corkin Gallery invites you to celebrate Barbara Astman, as we survey her 40 years of photo-based media innovation.</p> <p>Barbara&nbsp;Astman&nbsp;pioneered the artistic use of both&nbsp;analogue&nbsp;and digital reproduction techniques. She is among the first to discover and explore technological practices and concepts--signifiers in contemporary art. Merging technology with the handmade,&nbsp;Astman's&nbsp;practice explores themes&nbsp;<br />of glass ceilings, women's issues, and how media informs current thinking.</p> <p>"Looking: Then and Now" is a Featured Exhibition in the Scotiabank CONTACT Photography Festival.</p> Wed, 27 Apr 2016 21:01:56 +0000
