Grunwald Gallery of Art

The Grunwald Gallery at Indiana University Bloomington is pleased to present the exhibition Light/Matter: Art at the Intersection of Photography and Printmaking. The exhibit will open on August 25th and continue through October 4, 2017.

Light/Matter is an exhibition curated by Tracy Templeton, Associate Professor in the School of Art + Design at Indiana University; Walter Jule, Professor Emeritus at the University of Alberta and Ingrid Ledent, Professor at the Royal Academy of Fine Art in Antwerp, Belgium. The exhibition will feature up to seventy works by forty-five artists spanning sixteen countries in Europe, North America and Asia.

An instance of “simultaneous discovery” in the art world, the photo-print movement has had a transformative impact on society that rivals that of similar events in science and technology. Beginning in the mid 20th century, the photo print revolution created a new graphic language through the fusion of photographic imagery and analog print techniques that continues to shape global “visual literacy” in the digital age. Light/Matter marks the first time a major museum exhibition has presented groundbreaking works by several generations of artists who have made significant contributions to the photo-print movement. The exhibition will also serve to illustrate the ways in which cultural factors and traditions have influenced the adoption and evolution of new print technologies.
