This is Not Photography – Haliburton School of Art + Design Art Talk
July 26 @ 4:45 pm - 6:00 pm
Kim Lee Kho shares the expanding (and sometimes surprising!) use of photos by contemporary artists. Using photographic material and playing with how to use it, is a deeply contemporary way to work with imagery and perception and the way we experience the world now. Starting with photography’s development, what we tend to believe about it, what it made possible, we will move into the uses of photography by contemporary artists, including in visual artworks that are not “photography”. While not well-understood, photography’s role is rich, lively and an incredibly diverse part of contemporary art in sometimes surprising – even hidden – ways. As a multidisciplinary artist, presenter Kim-Lee Kho works in various photo-based mixed media forms herself including prints, video, sculpture and textile. Kim also teaches photo-based mixed media for HSA+D and elsewhere – exploring the various technical challenges as well as the vast creative possibilities. www.kimleekho.ca
