Light/Matter: Art at the Intersection of Photography and Printmaking

Exhibition: May 11–June 2, 2018
Reception: Thursday, May 10, 2018 from 7 to 10 pm

The University of Alberta Museums is proud to collaborate with the Department of Art and Design to present Light/Matter: Art at the Intersection of Photography and Printmaking. This exhibition calls for a re-evaluation of the photo-print movement that began in the mid-twentieth century. Light/Matter brings nearly 100 ground-breaking works by 40 artists from 16 countries, together to demonstrate how their works are clear evidence of the impact of the photo-print movement and how we see and interpret images. Curated by: Tracy Templeton, Walter Jule and Ingrid Ledent.

About FAB Gallery

Since 1987, the Fine Arts Building Galley has presented art and design exhibitions that benefit the University of Alberta, Edmonton, the Province, and beyond. These exhibitions feature work by students at the undergraduate and graduate levels, faculty and staff, as well as by contemporary and historical artists with national and international reputations. FAB Gallery exhibitions—featuring both in-house curated exhibitions as well travelling exhibitions organized by other galleries and academic centres—attract approximately 13,000 guests a year to the Department of Art and Design.

The gallery is a valuable teaching resource, providing many Department of Art and Design students with their first opportunities to present their work publicly. Public presentation of work prepares students for involvement in the professional art and design community and increases students’ awareness of the dialogue that accompanies the public presentation of their works. As the most public face of the Department of Art and Design, the Fine Arts Building Gallery provides Edmonton and the wider community with an aesthetically enriching and intellectually engaging resource in the visual arts.

Funding

The FAB Gallery receives financial support from the Alberta Foundation for the Arts, Alberta Community Development.
