Exhibition Press Release:

Image Transfer: Pictures in a Remix Culture

This exhibition spotlights evolving attitudes toward the appropriation, recuperation, and repurposing of extant photographic imagery. Artists, as both producers and consumers in today’s vast image economy, freely adopt and adapt materials from myriad sources. Images culled from the Internet, magazines, newspapers, advertisements, television, films, personal and public archives, studio walls, and from other works of art are all fair game. Image Transfer brings together artists who divert commonplace, even ubiquitous, visual materials into new territories of formal and idiomatic expression.

Featured artists: Sean Dack, Karl Haendel, Jordan Kantor, Matt Keegan, Carter Mull, Lisa Oppenheim, Marlo Pascual, Amanda Ross-Ho, Sara VanDerBeek, Siebren Versteeg, Erika Vogt, Kelley Walker

Image Transfer: Pictures in a Remix Culture is curated by Henry Associate Curator Sara Krajewski and is a traveling exhibition presented by the Henry Art Gallery in partnership with Independent Curators International (ICI), New York, and circulated by ICI.
