Dan Grossman, art writer and critic of Nuvo, has written a review of the Clowes Hall Grand Lobby exhibit, “New Work: Photographs by Ron Kern.
Here’s an excerpt: …you see a statue with trees and the sky in the background. But the sky itself seems to bleed into the foreground statue. This photograph seems to have an unexpected quality of depth — beyond the mere surface of things. Check out the rest of Dan’s review here. Click here to view the entire exhibit online.
It sure great to see so many photography exhibits in Indianapolis. Heart be still, now through March 21, 2010, the Indianapolis Museum of Art, in the Golden Gallery, has an exhibition of photography – “Paired Photographs.” IMA has an excellent collection of photography and it’s about time that it is starting to see the light of day. There have been many changes since Maxwell Anderson took the reins at IMA. He has some critics but all of the changes I’ve seen are positive. Since his arrival, we are already seeing the second significant exhibition of photography. The first was the amazing set of prints from Robert Frank’s “The Americans” in conjunction with Kerouak’s “On the Road” manuscript. Maxwell and his staff have been sensitive to the needs of the musem going public by revising the food service. I’m starting to go way off on a tangent here. On another day, maybe I’ll post more about IMA.
