Daniel W. Coburn: Becoming a Specter
Julie Anne Greenberg: Considerable Uncertainty Remains
Jacob Koestler: Copy of a Copy
The Print Center’s ANNUAL is one of the oldest and most prestigious competitions in the United States. It focuses on highlighting local, national and international artists who utilize photography and printmaking in intriguing ways, both in content and process.
The artists selected for these exhibitions take a critical view of the role of the printed image in their work, from images by Coburn that challenge the tropes of the family photo album, to Greenberg’s use of screenprinting as a means of creating and breaking apart patterns, to Koestler’s use of a mixture of different print media to capture the relationship between observation and final image.
Daniel W. Coburn’s exhibition will feature previously unshown works from the series Becoming a Specter. The black and white photographs draw on Coburn’s ongoing interest in the imagery of family photo albums. These works seek to complicate our understanding of the idealized American Dream typically depicted in those collections.
Julie Anne Greenberg creates installations composed of hundreds of printed and cut paper components
affixed directly to the wall. Based on weather maps of hurricanes and tropical storms, her work explores the ways that we quantify and personify these natural events.
Jacob Koestler combines multiple print and photographic media, sometimes in the same piece. His work invites the viewer to consider similarities between the ways we perceive the visible world and the ways in which photographs operate. Koestler’s work illuminates both the possibilities and the shortcomings of the printed image.
