Making Pictures: Vikky Alexander, IAIN BAXTER&, Fred Herzog, Geoffrey James, and Danny Singer

Exposure Photography Festival 2017

Opening Reception
Saturday, February 4, 2017
2:00 p.m. – 5:00 p.m.
TrépanierBaer is pleased to present Making Pictures, an exhibition of new and recent work by Vikky Alexander, IAIN BAXTER&, Fred Herzog, Geoffrey James & Danny Singer.

On view through February, Making Pictures is a group exhibition featuring selected works ranging from Fred Herzog’s, Geoffrey James’ and IAIN BAXTER&’s poignant and perceptive records of street life, urban settings, and unique architectural sites, through to Vikky Alexander’s seductive and ironic critiques of consumer culture, and Danny Singer’s renderings of main streets in prairie towns meticulously composed with their trompe l’oeil effects suggesting architectural models of small-town streetscapes. Many of these works are being shown to Calgary audiences for the first time. While the genre of photography collectively unites these works, the approaches employed by each artist varies, and we hope that the exhibition precipitates discussion not only about the content of the work, but also about the how each work was made.

We look forward to seeing you at the gallery!
