A Place Aside: Artists and Their Partners

September 28 - December 20, 2012

Since the invention of photography, the camera has been turned towards loved ones to document birthdays, vacations, graduations, and other significant events. For each of the couples included in this exhibition, however, photography is not a method of simply recording events but a means of exploring their partnership through the creation of art.

While the photographs serve as documents of a couple’s life together, they also reveal the trust and respect that each partner has for the other. A Place Aside, organized by guest curator Garrett Hansen, features images from nine contemporary photographers working in the United States, China, Brazil, and Japan: Jeff Moerchen, Alexis Culver, Audim Culver, Gustavo Gomes, Yuhki Touyama, Fabien Seguin, Julie Barnofski, Garrett Hansen, and Tanya Bezreh.


Gender Expressions

Head, Hans van der Kamp, Vivienne Maricevic, Ohm Phanphiroj, Len Prince, Carson Rader, Sarah Taavola, Cara Lee Wade, Martin Weinberg, Jessica Anthony, Dennis Chamberlin, Michael Grecco, Linda Hesh, and Herb Ritts.
