Contemporary Antiques, curated by Frank Relle, will be on display at Octavia Art Gallery from December 1, 2012 - January 5, 2013. The exhibition will include traditional and alternative-process photographs shown alongside camera phone images curated from the social photo-sharing website, Instagram. Silver gelatin, glass plate negatives, photogravures, and other “antique” techniques utilized by contemporary photographers will be juxtaposed with digitally processed and “antiqued” Instagram camera phone images.
The show will include 350 Instagram photographs, selected from 4500 submissions, from over 80 primarily unknown phone photographers and 30 framed photographs from 15 recognized museum and gallery photographers.
Opening Reception: Saturday, December 1st, 6-8pm
