Iterations and Permutations: Museum Pictures
Friday, November 02 - 1:30PM to 1:50PM
Student Center Ballroom B, University of Kentucky
Museum Pictures was a series that began while exploring and (re)photographing the collection at the University of Kentucky Art Museum. The series falls somewhere between a selfish insertion of my artistic leanings into a museum collection and a more refined "intervention" within the museum's walls. For this presentation, I will speak to relevant historical and contemporary influences while making these images along with examining how I attempted to approach the process of transforming an existing artwork. The images speak to some very specific histories: the archive, collections and curation, and the making of art from art.
