On View: May 11 - August 4, 2017

Reception: May 11, 2017   5 - 7pm

Pursuing the Uncanny: Ralph Eugene Meatyard,” curated CCS master's candidate Hunter Kissel, features figurative photographs by Meatyard that incorporate masks, blurring techniques, and prolonged exposures to present moments when the unconscious becomes most visible.

Ralph Eugene Meatyard (1925-1972) was a photographer working in Lexington, KY during the mid-twentieth century. He identified no less than twelve bodies of work he made during his lifetime. This exhibition features photographs from what has been posthumously referred to as Romances. Since his death, Meatyard has been the subject of major solo exhibitions at venues such as the International Center for Photography and the Art Institute of Chicago.
