John Mann, 1st Place
The Newspace Center for Photography presents Among Us and Curious
, their 3rd annual national juried exhibition, curated by Darius Himes. In the chaotic world of 21st century photography, where the multiplication of technology has led to a proliferation of images from anyone, anywhere, Among Us and Curious
has sought to restore the critical filter and deliver a strong, cohesive body of work. Neither focusing on the most diverse nor the most technically proficient photographs, the jurors selected images that possessed an "enigmatic script" that would contribute to the overall unity of the show. Himes suggests that "playfulness, mystery, fauna, fancy, and the presence of others among us" should resonate throughout the exhibition.

David Eckard, "Oculist (hindsight tending)"
For the month of July, David Eckard is exhibiting Liveries (summer stock)
at the Mark Woolley Gallery. Eckard's installations seek to reference Duchamp's "mechanized, isolated surrogates" in Large Glass
, constructing sculptures imbued with a bizarre, corporeal objecthood.
