Saturday, March 31 at 1:00pm to 5:00pm
Shadows of the Future Anterior pairs photographer Lewis Baltz' iconic San Quentin Point, a set of 25 silver prints owned by Trinity University, with a series of works from William Wylie's Carrara. Lewis Baltz (1945-2014) was a central figure to the New Topographics movement in photography of the late 1970's.
That movement, marked by a heightened engagement for how artists conceived of place photographically, resonates powerfully in the work of William Wylie. Wylie's meticulous photographs transmit a heightened perception at work in an extraordinary place.
William Wylie is a professor of art at the University of Virginia where he teaches photography and is director of the Studio Art Department. His research is primarily concerned with the recognition of how spaces are transformed by a variety of forces, including human impact. His photographs and films have been shown both nationally and internationally. In addition to his seven published books, Wylie's work can be found in the permanent collections of the Metropolitan Museum of Art, National Gallery of Art, Smithsonian American Art Museum, The Philadelphia Museum of Art, Virginia Museum of Fine Art, and Yale University Art Museum, among other places. He has been an artist in residence at the American Academy in Rome and the Center for Land Use Interpretation in Utah. In 2005 Wylie was a recipient of a Guggenheim fellowship.
Shadows of the Future Anterior will be on view February 22 through March 31 in the Michael and Noemi Neidorff Art Gallery located at Trinity University. A corresponding lecture, followed by an exhibition reception, will take place at 6:00 pm Wednesday, March 7, 2018. The exhibition and events are sponsored by the Stieren Arts Enrichment Series, and are free and open to the public.
