"Performance Contained: The Camera as Audience"
Thu., Sept. 3, 6-9 p.m., Fri., Sept. 4, 6-9 p.m. and Thursdays-Saturdays, 12-5 p.m. Continues through Sept. 19 2015
Libby Rowe curates an accomplished group of photographers at Terminal 136, UTSA’s relatively new off-campus gallery: Jay Gould and Heather Stratton from Maryland, Jaime E. Johnson (Mississippi), John William Keedy (San Antonio) and Melanie Walker (Colorado).
The thread that binds these artists is their emphasis on “the power of still imagery to infer a time-based event.” Using character and scene, the images on display capture performative moments, leaving the viewer with necessary clues to piece together the full story.
From an investigation of the natural world with Johnson’s chronicling of a feral woman, to Gould’s interest in integrating the scientific into photographic and Keedy’s exploration of personal identity and normalcy, visitors can expect a wide variety of subject matter and execution in this impressive group exhibit.
