Flip your Field at UMMA

 

continued

Limiting or liberating, this one condition forms the basis of an UMMA series entitled Flip Your Field. The current exhibition features photographs chosen by U-M art professor Larry Cressman, whose innovative body of work has explored expressive qualities of the line in drawing, printmaking, and installation pieces.

Cressman chose two contrasting arrangements of photographs. On one wall looms a dense, salon-style array of photographs of trees. According to his curator's statement, they represent traditional photography and relatively straightforward techniques in image making. On an adjacent wall, there is a linear, museum-style display of images that don't look like photos at all--experimental works that push the margins of the medium. The contrast is visually striking and provides a suitable context for viewing individual photographs within each group.
