Alan Rath
New Sculpture

Alan Rath’s kinetic sculptures poetically integrate the human and the technological. Many incorporate computer-animated still images of human features, such as eyes, mouths and hands, displayed on LCD screens. These screens are mounted on sculptural armatures and the images are programmed to change in subtle progressive permutations. The screen images often appear to be involved in some form of communication.

Duane Michals
Sequences, Tintypes and Talking Pictures

Duane Michals is best known for staged photographic sequences incorporating handwritten text created in the 1960s and 1970s. Provocatively breaking away from the established photographic tradition of highlighting powerful single images, his small, black and white photographs employ narrative sequencing to address metaphysical issues such as memory, mortality, love and loss.

In 2012 Michals began painting on tintype portraits. An historical process from the Civil War era, tintypes are photographs printed on thin metal sheets. In this work, he combines painting and photography, 19th century portraiture with 20th century Modernist references. The exhibition will include nine of the painted tintypes and several recent films, Talking Pictures.
