// Opening October 11, 2018 6-9pm //
Aviary Gallery is pleased to present Provenance, a group exhibition at our location, 48 South St. Jamaica Plain, MA, featuring the work of Meghan Braney, Rafael Concepcion, Alexa Cushing, Juliet Degree, Amy Fink, Ross Kiah, Julia Kokernak, Maxwell Labelle, Alyssa McDonald, Evan Perkins, Kiera Renz, Joseph Ritchie, and Bountheng Tanakhone. The works in this exhibition span a variety of photographic processes, seen in both the use of a variety cameras and post production processes. Prints shown include archival inkjet prints and analogue silver gelatin prints.
By definition, provenance is defined as, “the place of origin or earliest known history of something”. The practice of deriving a provenance is particularly valuable in authenticating a historical object, and has therefore been a longstanding tradition in the world of art, antiquities, archaeology, and science. Likewise, the photographic work of these 13 artists explores the taxonomy of what precedes us, and these tracings back to an origin: be it the personal, historical, or metaphorical.
Calling to the world of antiquities for this exhibition’s title draws attention to the parallel abilities photography possesses to document, facilitate, and challenge a fixation on ownership and lineage. Provenance is an exhibition that delves into various artist’s diverse practices to emphasize the inclination to focus on our fervent tendencies to archive, to reflect, and to seek a past in order to validate its future.
Please join us for our Opening Reception: October 11, 2018, 6-9pm at 48 Green St. Jamaica Plain, MA. For Inquiries Please Contact Amy Fink, at email@example.com.
