UNIVERSITY OF NEW MEXICO GRADUATE STUDENTS LAUNCH EXHIBIT IN CONJUNCTION WITH REGIONAL PHOTOGRAPHY CONFERENCE.
Santa Fe, New Mexico (October 26, 2011.) University of New Mexico MFA candidates, Stephanie Brunia, Daniel Coburn, Rachel Cox, Lauren Greenwald, Jamie Kovach and Colby Sempek will celebrate the opening of their exhibit Truth Defined at the Center for Contemporary Arts in Santa Fe on Friday, November 11th. The public is invited to attend a reception for the artists at CCA from 6-9pm. The exhibit will be on view until Saturday, December 10th during regular gallery hours, from 10-5 p.m.
Truth Defined, an exhibition comprised of photo based works, runs simultaneously with the Society for Photographic Education Southwest Regional Conference held at The School of Arts and Design at Santa Fe Community College. The exhibit is designed as a supplement to the panel discussion, Truth Defined, lead by current UNM graduate students in support of this year’s conference theme Photographic Truths and Other Illusions.
The panel discussion and exhibit are executed to challenge the role of the photograph as a vessel for truth. Although distinctly different, each of these artists’ work hones in on similar themes, primarily the human tendency to perceive the photograph as reality while failing to recognize the subjective nature of the lens.
