Some Uses of Photography: Four Washington Artists

Exhibition Run: September 6 through December 14, 2014
Tuesday-Sunday 11 am-4pm 

The definition of a photograph and its relationship to other visual art forms has undergone enormous changes since the invention of photography in the 19th century. The work of four female artists–Jenn De Palma, Ding Ren, Siobhan Rigg, and Sandra Rottmann –represents this ongoing dialog about craft, authenticity, the role of the artist, and other concerns that embody today's definition of photography and it's varied uses within contemporary art practices. Some Uses of Photography is curated by Phyllis Rosenzweig.
