DESCRIPTION

Please join the Brooklyn Association for the Development of Camera-based Art and Theory (BADCAT) for AMPLIFIEDPHOTOGRAPHIES - the third of three installments that collectively make up PERSISTENCE OF VISION (curated by Abigail Simon). The exhibition will take place at BADCAT Mobile 1, a storefront pop-up gallery at 223 West 10th Street in the West Village, and runs from August 7 – August 15. Gallery hours are daily from 11am to 6pm.

The final show in the series, AMPLIFIED PHOTOGRAPHIES, will open this Saturday, August 7, with a reception from 6pm to 9pm, and will feature work by:

MARLA LEIGH CAPLAN
GRACE KIM
ERICA LEONE
MARIA INES MANCHEGO
STACY MEHRFAR
DANA MEIJILSON
SARAH PALMER
CHRIS SCHIAVO

These artists perform diverse strategies of observation and intervention that re-conceptualize (Palmer, Leone, Schiavo) and reinvigorate (Caplan, Meijilson, Mehrfar, and Manchego) what constitutes a traditional photographic practice.

The Brooklyn Association for the Development of Camera-based Art and Theory (BADCAT). BADCAT is a networked collective of over 70 artists working in all media (including photographs) who are committed to expanding the notion of the “photographic image”. In monthly salons, online and meat-space exhibitions and collaborations, BADCAT is a forum for the presentation and production of hybrid works of any and all pedigree.
