Painting ≠ Photography

New Acquisitions and Selections

WFU Student Union Art Collection of Contemporary Art

September 9 – october 20, 2013

In sections anchored by the photographic works purchased by students last spring, Painting ≠ Photography explores three themes in the Student Union Collection as a whole: the shift from large-scale paintings to large-scale photographs; images that call attention to their constructed nature as a means of questioning the assumed objectivity of the camera; and works in both painting and photography that embody intuitive or chance-based processes.
