PDN Photo of the Day

Cutting and Crumpling to Transform the Photograph

This year’s summer exhibition at Yancey Richardson brings together a group of artists who explore the inventive ways in which the photographic print can be transformed. In the show, photographs and photographic postcards are cut, torn, folded, crumpled, scratched, burned, taped, painted and collaged. Many of the pieces were made with an irreversibility more common to painting and drawing than photography. The final works bear the mark of the artist’s hand, resulting in unique pieces that combine image and object.

Interventions, on view through August 24, 2018, features artists John Baldessari, Mary Ellen Bartley, Marco Breuer, Moyra Davey, Jay Defeo, Sandi Haber Fifield, Bryan Graf, Nicholas Hall, Pello Irazu, Matthew Jensen, Kenneth Josephson, Kensuke Koike, Elad Lassry, Mary Lum, Joseph Maida, Chris Mccaw, Vik Muniz, Rachel Perry, Alyson Shotz, Paul Mpagi Sepuya, Erin Shirreff, Doug & Mike Starn, Mickalene Thomas and Masao Yamamoto.
