50% Grey: Contemporary Czech Photography Reconsidered


50% Grey: Contemporary Czech Photography Reconsidered
January 29 – March 28, 2010
Gallery Talk: Thursday, January 28 at 4 pm
Opening Reception: Thursday, January 28, 5 – 7 pm
Museum of Contemporary Photography

This exhibition brings together the work of six contemporary Czech artists (Lukáš Jasanský, Martin Polák, Štěpán Grygar, Jiří Thýn, Markéta Othová and Michal Pěchouček), all of whom reflect on the very materials of photography and find poetic resonance in a lack of obviously-poetic subject matter. As the analog technology of photography fades away, these artists subversively employ a variety of photographic materials to investigate the potential for photographic veracity, and push the idea of framing and selection to counter any perceived objectivity the medium might have.
