Artist talk with Nathan Vass, Interview by Quinn Hallenbeck
Gallery 110 will be hosting an artist talk with Nathan Vass (interviewed by Quinn Hallenbeck) on Saturday, July 15 at 2pm.
Artist Nathan Vass‘ chosen medium, analogue color photography, will be remembered as one of the shortest-lived art forms; it came of age in the ’70s, the populist sibling of B&W (itself the awkward stepchild of painting) and part of a medium invented too late to be taken seriously. It died out in large part on August 30th, 2018, when the last large professional-grade, public-access color darkroom in the US closed its doors. The timing is unfortunate: film, though no longer the norm for image-making, remains the premier avenue of approach for fine art photo work and is the fastest-growing trend in photography today. After two decades of experimentation with digital cameras, there can be no arguing that film yields a better image. In so doing, what else does it tell us?
Nathan Vass' exhibition "Present Perfect" will be on display at Gallery 110 from July 6 – 29, 2023. Gallery hours are Thursday – Saturday from 12pm – 5pm and by appointment. Stop by Gallery 110 on July 15th at 2pm for this deep-dive into Vass' artistic process and vision!
