Christopher Russell, Explosion #31, 2014 (Donated by the Mark & Hilarie Moore Family Collection in 2016 in memory of the Orlando Pulse Night Club Shooting Victims of 6/12/2016)
I wanted to inform you about an upcoming exhibition at the J. Paul Getty Museum that will include one of my favorite artists, CHRISTOPHER RUSSELL, opening this Monday, February 26, 2018.
Cut! Paper Play in Contemporary Photography will feature the work of six contemporary photographers whose interaction with paper is an integral part of their practice. Some create paper models with images gleaned from current events, popular magazines, or the internet for the express purpose of photographing them. Others cut, layer, fold, and/or assemble representational photographs to introduce tactile or narrative elements. Cut! provides a contemporary counterpart to Paper Promises: Early American Photography, which outlines the ways in which photography on paper only belatedly came to be popularized in the United States in the mid- to late nineteenth century. Both exhibitions will be on view simultaneously the Center for in Photographs at the Getty Center from February 27 to May 27, 2018.
We are pleased that Christopher Russell’s Explosion #31, which was donated by the Mark & Hilarie Moore Family Collection in 2016 in memory of the Orlando Pulse Night Club Shooting Victims of 6/12/2016, is one of four photographs by the artist that will be featured in Cut! Paper Play in Contemporary Photography.
