Hosted by New England Women in Photography, this all-day event features five women (one curator, four artists) who will comment on the contemporary usage of 19th century photographic processes by 21st century artists.
The “Handmade Photography” event is offered in conjunction with the exhibition Going Forward, Looking back – Practicing Historic Processes in the 21st Century, on view in the Trustman Gallery at Simmons from April 20 – May 28, 2010.
A number of the artists in the exhibition will attend, so this is a chance to meet them and speak with them about their work.”
Please share this information with your students, colleagues, and anyone you know who is interested in 19th century photography techniques and their reappearance in contemporary photography.”
