Opening Reception | Before Digital | Post-1970 Photography in Alberta

WHEN: Thursday, January 17, 2019 from 5 - 8pm

WHERE: Main Mall, Alberta College of Art + Design

Before Digital: Post-1970 Photography in Alberta takes a selective look at the late  analogic period through the eyes, camera shutters and darkrooms of twenty-seven photographers working in the province. Featuring close to 80 works in (gelatin) silver print, C-print, Ektacolour, Cibachrome and other less common film products or  processes, this large survey also highlights the growth of fine art photography from the documentary to the more conceptual or photo-based art. Considered as well is the contribution made by certain post-secondary institutions, public art galleries and collections in the province.
