When It’s a Photograph EXAMINES NEW DIRECTIONS
When It's A Photograph
James Welling, 003, Chromogenic Print, 2007

LOS ANGELES, CA (Sept. 18, 2008) -- When It's a Photograph examines contemporary photography's current fascination with collage, cut-outs, photograms and other altered states of the traditional photograph. The show considers why photographers are revisiting these formal techniques of the avant-garde of the 1910s-1940s at this particular moment. In some cases, it is a material-conscious reaction to digital image-making; in others it is a self-referential examination of photography and its existence as an art form that operates beyond the flat space of the photographic print.

The artwork included in the show is overtly constructed; the traditional photograph is treated as the central component in a larger scheme of art-making. The works use photography as collage or a ground for drawn or cut imagery or as a photographic trace in the case of the photogram. Even while prioritizing the medium of photography, the relationship between the photographic and the drawn, and the sculptural and the painted, is deliberately questioned, leading the viewer to consider what makes a photograph a photograph.

Artists include Doug Aitken, John Bock, Sebastiaan Bremer, Phil Chang, Morgan Cuppet-Michelson, Liz Deschenes, Amie Dicke, Richard Galpin, Arthur Ou, Adam Putnam, Paul Sietsema, Yanina Spizzirri, Carly Steward, Wolfgang Tillmans, Yanai Toister, Inez van Lamsweerde, Marnie Weber, and James Welling.

This exhibition is made possible by The Philip and Muriel Berman Foundation.
