Hans Gindlesberger will shed light on the development of his photographic series I'm in the Wrong Film in a gallery tour of the exhibition. His narrative will lead visitors through some of the precursors to the work, and an introduction to his observations of the social and political position of small town, Middle America. Gindlesberger will also discuss technical aspects of his working method involved in image-making that goes beyond mere photographic processes, and how I'm in the Wrong Film transitioned into other work. Co-sponsored with the Contemporary Art Forum, Department of Art, Miami University. Generously supported by FOTOFOCUS.
4:30-5:30 p.m. Artist Reception; 5:50-7:05 p.m. Gallery Talk
Hans Gindlesberger’s work covers a broad range of photographic thinking and making. While remaining uncommitted to a singular approach or aesthetic, his practice is anchored to an ongoing interest in places, whether real, manufactured, or imaginary, and in playful subversions of the photographic process.
His projects, spanning photography, video, installation, and new media, have been exhibited at over 120 exhibitions across North and South America, Europe, and Asia. He has lectured and given visiting artist seminars at universities and galleries throughout the US and at international conferences. Many projects or single images have also been featured in magazines, books, textbooks, and exhibition catalogs.
