Puttin’ on the Fitz / Special Student Exhibition

PLATFORM is very pleased to present a special 2-day exhibition of advanced student photography and student video/film work from the School of Art at The University of Manitoba. Bringing together a unique selection of work from Winnipeg’s younger generation of artists, the exhibition primarily explores notions around family and home. Ideas about familial lineage, absence, and memory play off each other within the subtleties of our unique prairie landscape. The technical approaches to image making presented are as layered and diverse as the values and customs that compose our city: accidental light spills disrupt traditional darkroom photography; conceptual strategies explore the photograph as keeper of time; and staged studio compositions with toy miniatures all probe the complexities of communication.
