Hand / Eye at form & concept (Santa Fe, New Mexico)

October 26, 2018 - December 31, 2018

Whether they’re gelatin silver prints or daguerreotypes, there’s one thing that most all photographs have in common: they’re flat. For a new group exhibition at form & concept, ten artists from across the United States shatter this convention by applying craft media to photography—and vice versa. Hand/Eye presents images with the texture and volume of sculptures, vaulting a medium that’s often trapped behind glass into the viewer’s sphere. “Call it super-alternative process photography,” says form & concept Gallery Director and Hand/Eye curator Frank Rose.

“form & concept has never done a photography show, because we’re so focused on the collision of art, craft and design mediums in contemporary art,” says Rose. “Of course, photographers are a big part of that conversation. The lines are blurring in every corner of the art world.” The artworks in the show incorporate a wide array of materials, including fiber, cast glass, micaceous clay and human hair.
