October 20 – November 4, 2012

Opening: October 20th from 6-9PM

This exhibition curated by Kathy Grayson and Tim Barber brings together a group of young artists who explore the depths and boundaries of the photographic medium. Widely varied in their practices, these artists add unique perspectives to their ever-expanding and mutating photographic dialog.

Using photography in new ways, especially across disciplines, each artist will present a group of works that overlap with what are traditionally the concerns of other media; whether that be cinema, the internet, publishing, sculpture, poetry, painting or curation.

Andrew Kuo is a multimedia artist who will show a seires of iPhone photos where he color averaged areas to make pie charts in circles on top of the photograph. His traditional paintings incorporate graphs and diagrams to explain quotidian occurences, like a detailed chart of aspects of a hangover or Lebron James’ imagined inner thoughts. In these works and those shown here at The Hole, Kuo combines data with abstract color compositions and disposable photography to make visually challenging artworks.

Asger Carlsen makes photographs that depict ruptures in reality with the insertion of illogical and highly surreal moments and distortions. He composes these images as you would a sculpture, shaping the figure into impossible poses, distorting limbs or adding faces where there definitely shouldn’t be.

Jason Nocito takes analogue photographs of the world around him that look digital, or manipulates digital photos to look analogue. His long history of making photographic publications informs his editing process and presentation. Using two perpendicular walls like an open spread of a book, he will hang four new photographs of wildly varying scale to create an overall composition that it itself an artwork.

Jessica Eaton makes photographs of things that don’t have a real-world indexical referent. One recent body of work Cubes for Albers and LeWitt explored what Josef Albers called “the discrepancy between physical fact and psychic effect” and bear a relationship to the history of abstract painting and Op Art. This exhibition features photographs of grey, black and white blocks combined with multiple exposure, additive separation and motion blur to create an image of something the naked eye can never behold.

Jim Mangan treats photography like a major movie shoot, taking a group of friends on a journey of self-exploration into foreign places to create his work. The Bedu series exhibited here were shot among the desolate sand dunes of Utah’s Little Sahara Desert where his subjects create new identities by obscuring their bodies with sand in a process of freedom and resurrection.

Kate Steciw makes digital photographic compositions where she deliberately misuses technology to make objects that are reminiscent of photographs but visually resemble sculptures or collages. The titles of her pieces add a layer of poetry to them that becomes apparent on subsequent examinations, finding hidden texts or objects distorted throughout her works, while the assortment of source images used highlight the randomness of digital image licenscing and bring up issues of ownership and exchange.

Peter Sutherland makes unique photographic objects by printing a photo and then adhering a perforated sticker with a different photo on to the front of it. The effect is like an analogue version of a digital photo overlay, and evocative of a hallucinatory vision of superimposed film made using a kind of cheap special effect that returns the photo to a certain objecthood.

Sandy Kim is a documentary photographer of the seedier side of life with her coterie of interesting looking and debaucherous friends in the tradition of Larry Clark or Nan Goldin, but updated through her blog and internet experiences. Hanging over eighty prints from her last few rolls of film, tiled floor to ceiling on two adjacent walls, Kim will highlight how her photography is part of the one overall artwork that she contributes to online every day.

Tim Barber has curated the largest archive of contemporary photographers with his highly influential web site Tinyvices.com. Also a prolific photographer, he will present a new group of subtle and poetic photographs that continue to expand on his unique and personal visual language.
