FAB Gallery and University of Alberta Museums - Gallery A 

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.
