Aviary Gallery was pleased to have: Selections From Carousel, a group show organized and curated by Lindsay Metivier and Suzi Grossman. Carousel IV, a digitally projected slideshow of photographic works, took place on July 18, 2013. The slideshow is a format that brings many people together and gives photographers a way to show new work in a unique environment without many of the logistic hurdles normally associated with juried exhibitions. As an extension of the earlier Carousel event, the gallery is presenting a curated selection of the works included in July’s slideshow in a month-long gallery exhibition. In taking works from the screen and giving them a physical form it offers the images the opportunity for a slower read and gives viewers a more physical experience.
As before, one of the goals of the Carousel exhibition is to provide a litmus test for what is currently happening and being created in today’s art world. By favoring inclusivity we hope to emphasize the variety and also the quality of work being made and the multivalence of artistic inquiry. Selections from Carousel brings together a diverse and talented group of photographers, both local and international, to form an exciting survey of contemporary photography.
