Contemporary Geographies is a four-person group show of works driving photography past its traditional parameters to questions of place, material and inhabitants. The artists Matt Bell, Debbie Fleming Caffery, Josh Coen and Lynda Frese use photography as a core to their studio practice, it is in their manner of transcending the documentary nature of photography into the specifics and malleability of medium that their works converse and collaborate.
Basin Arts is excited to announce that we are an official P4 Satellite location for Prospect 4 New Orleans for 2017/2018. Contemporary Geographies will be the first show included as part of Basin Arts’ series of exhibitions called Conscious Media.
Conscious Media is a three-part project of exhibitions and programming at Basin Arts in Lafayette, Louisiana for the Fall and Winter of 2017/18. In each phase of our project, media and medium plays a central role in the narratives of the artwork. A core relation to use of photography will characterize the first two phases beginning with; Contemporary Geographies. This will be followed by a solo show of recent works by Ben Koch entitled Metamorphoses. In both shows photography is at the core of the works by way of practice, influence and transcendence. Our last exhibition in the run of Conscious Media will be a small select group show of recent graduates and soon-to-be graduates of our community. Media and medium will again take the fore in this exhibition as candidates will be chosen for unique approaches to exploration in media within their chosen practice as well as how these separate practices may intermingle.
This Satellite program is part of a larger International art exhibition based just down the road in New Orleans, Louisiana known as Prospect New Orleans.
