In an increasingly digital era, Record / Off Record emphasizes the importance of the photograph as a tangible object in print form. Record / Off Record investigates the archive with questions about history and how it informs the future of contemporary image-making practices. Record / Off Record means published work (record) and photos taken, but not used (off record) as a product of the act of building a visual archive.
The diverse nature of the exhibition in regard to the personal, educational, and professional background of artists promotes extensive dialogue on the multitude of ways the archive is approached. The exhibiting artists hail from various regions within the United States and possess different personal experiences that contribute to notions of visual data.
There is great uncertainty for what the future may hold and as time progresses, our memories of the past begin to deteriorate. The photograph is a record. It is part of the visual archive on humanity and experience. Without this visual data, it is easy to forget.
Featured Artists: Miranda Barnes, Caiti Borruso, Valerie Bower, Matt Eich, Stacy Kranitz, Melissa Kreider, Kevin O’Meara, Nathan Pearce, Jake Reinhart, Bryan Schutmaat, Jason Vaughn
