Newzones is pleased to announce the return of Perception, a group show of Newzones’ photo-based artists. This exhibition will coincide with Exposure 2011: Calgary’s Festival of Photography,
Perception will feature Dianne Bos, Franco DeFrancesca, John Folsom, James Holroyd, Virginia Mak and Joshua Jensen-Nagle.
It will explore contemporary ideas of space and how it relates to photography. The photograph, after all, is the most
common mediator of our memories of certain places. Snapshots, postcards, and home movies have all been used to record
locations and the nostalgia that comes along with them.
When it comes to the photograph, however, none of the artists in Place are conventional straight shooters. Instead,
photography is mixed with wax or paint and, in some cases, Plexiglas. Some use pinhole cameras, while others explore the
potential of the Polaroid. Together the artists in Perception present an intriguing dialogue with the conventional
understanding of space as mediated through the photographic medium.
Featuring: Dianne Bos, Franco DeFrancesca, John Folsom, James Holroyd, Virginia Mak and Joshua Jensen-Nagle.
