The exhibit, titled ‘PERSPECTIVES’ will be held in the arts centre’s Cloakroom Digital Media Gallery, as well as simultaneously online, until March 31.
According to a release by the MAC, the exhibit will feature the work of six photographers’ perspectives on photography and how it impacts an image-saturated world.
“Exploring every perspective from one of the world’s top photojournalists, Barbara Davidson of Los Angeles, a three-time Pulitzer and Emmy award winner, to the microscopic views of Montreal photographer Jean Bruneau’s heart meds and soap films, and Jim Decker’s incredible underwater microscopic creatures, to G.A. (Tony) Fuller’s Indigenous images of coastal totems, to Chelsie Xavier-Blower, environmental filmmaker and photographer, and Brenda Castonguay’s play on the ancient art of Trompe-L’oeil, by incorporating hand-painted acrylic textured gels onto her images printed on aluminium substrates,” read the release.
The Exposure Photography Festival, a Calgary based non-profit, announced its program and exhibiting artists for its 18th edition of the festival, to take place throughout February 2022.
Previous festivals have received more than 850,000 visits, and this year Exposure estimates another large audience to the extensive program of exhibitions and events hosted in galleries, local businesses and online.
The exhibitions present a broad range of works, including photo collage, conceptual photography, politically engaged practices and works that embrace social and individual experience, as well as visual explorations of identity and personal narratives.
