TREX Art Display: In the Moment
May 13 - June 10Free
In the Moment is an exhibition featuring the works of twelve Alberta photographers. Dating from 1977 to 2010, these silver gelatin black-and-white photographs from the Alberta Foundation for the Arts’ permanent collection capture a variety of captivating characters situated in intriguing environments from all over the world. Photography has drastically changed since the evolution of the smartphone. Years ago, people would witness something and say, “I wish I had a camera.” In 2011, it was reported that Facebook’s 750 million users uploaded and shared 100 million photos every day.” Everyone has a camera, and it seems as though everything is documented. Rarely, however, do these pictures actually leave the device they were captured on, unlike during the time when film cameras were the status quo.
