During the summer of 2017, Slide Space 123 is hosting two shows focusing on cyanotype work by Studio Art MFA students. Blue/Print surveys the history of cyanotype through the lens of contemporary art. The featured artists examine the medium in a range of contexts: from its principal roots as a documenter (Hannah Perrine Mode, Rituals), to its integral role in architectural rendering (Alex Hamilton, Blueprints with the Lights On), and the populist, versatile aspects that make it ideal for experimentation and mass production (Mattson Fields, Blue State). Together, these artists create a dialogue with the history of this esoteric process that at once challenges its utilitarian past and explores the branching possibilities for its future.
Featuring works by Sean McFarland, Andrew Wilson, Lukaza Brandman-Verissimo, Amy Nathan, Alex Hamilton, Hannah Perrine Mode and Mattson Fields.
Curated by Mattson Fields, second year Studio Art MFA candidate at Mill College.
