Join us for an evening of discovery as curiosity seekers gather to celebrate the diversity of the photographic medium. Many of the artists will be in attendance to give you a tour of their work and discuss their photographic process. You can take part in creating your own objects of curiosity at the Fujifilm photo booth or have your portrait taken on Polaroid 8×10 instant film.
As a window into the science of the arcane, cabinets of curiosity have historically been places to find mysterious items of significance; oddities, relics, antiquities, archaeological or geological finds, anything that fascinates and inspires scientific exploration. They can represent someone’s interests or a tangible manifestation of their inner consciousness. This group exhibition is a collection of images created with analogue photographic processes, some dating back to the 1840s. The hands-on approach to image-making allow these artists to create objects that are imbued with their spirit and emotion, and put on display for the curious to discover
