White Wall / Black Box

Lucie McIntosh

Front Gallery
27 Nov 2015–18 Dec 2015
Opening 12.00am 1 Jan 1970

White Wall / Black Box is collaborative project between artists Tom Ames and Lucie McIntosh, considering the advent of the photograph within the gallery or exhibition space. Both Ames’ and McIntosh’s independent practices work across disciplines and are primarily concerned with reframing the nature photography today.White Wall / Black Box combines the artists understanding of photography and expands on their knowledge of practice, engaging with contemporary modes of making and viewing photography. Working together, Ames and McIntosh ask; how might our understanding of photography as being symbolic of reality affect what we see on the surface of the print? By exploring alternative image making processes as well as acknowledging the photograph as an object within itself, this project will link the photographs potentiality beyond the pictorial and its material existence within the exhibition space. This exhibition is supported by RMIT Link Arts & Culture.
