Join Jason Evans for the opening reception of Monkey Face: Pictures for Looking At, Drawing for Photography, for which the photographer has created seventeen unique images available through Aperture’s limited-edition print program. In this series, Evans has applied brightly colored stickers to his own photographs in randomly and intuitively generated patterns. The results are a workout for the eyes and the mind, a visual exercise that can be understood by everyone who encounters them.

Triennial Artist Spotlight: Lisa Oppenheim
Oppenheim’s work, analog equipment such as projectors and gelatin silver paper, is repurposed for use in the digital era. Her photographs and films often begin with Internet research, which she considers central to her practice. The results are hybrids of generations and technologies that are neither wholly dependent on their forerunners nor untethered.
For her series Smoke, which will be showcased in the ICP Triennial, Oppenheim sourced photographs of fire from web databases such as Flickr and the Library of Congress and cropped the images to isolate their clouds of smoke. She made transparencies of the altered image in Photoshop and exposed them onto new photographic paper using the light of a small butane torch or matches. Variations in timing, the transparency used, and studio debris such as dust register in her photographs as subtle gradations that morph in successive frames. Without horizons or people in the frame, the reexposed smoke billows become abstractions.
A Different Kind of Order: The ICP Triennial is on view May 17 to September 8, 2013.
