Be one of the first to see Henry Art’s latest exhibits, plus enjoy beer, wine, cupcakes, and live music at a late-night open house this Friday. Party warms up at 5pm with a discussion of Image Transfer: Pictures in a Remix Culture , their new group exhibit exploring the use and reuse of other artists’ photography. (Psst. Some call that stealing.) Seven of Image Transfer’s 12 artists—Jordan Kantor, Matt Keegan, Carter Mull, Lisa Oppenheim, Amanda Ross-Ho, Siebren Versteeg, and Erika Vogt—will be on hand to talk ownership and how they borrowed their contemporaries’ work to create something new.
Also new: SuttonBeresCuller’s interactive installation Panoptos, an entire wall of the East Gallery covered “salon style” with hand-picked paintings, prints and photos from the Henry’s collection. But the best part is that they’ve rigged a high-def camera to track up and down the wall and you get to maneuver it, stopping and zooming in on any piece you want from a remote computer station in the Stroum Gallery.
The member preview is from 6-8pm, but the gallery’s open to the public from 8-10pm. Sixties soul band the Witness plays live, and for $12 you get all the beer and Cupcake Royale snacks you can stomach. For more info, click here.
