RON ARTIST: MVP (Malleability vs. Preservation)September 23rd, 2010
Title: RON ARTIST: MVP (Malleability vs. Preservation)
Location: Noble & Superior Projects. 1418 W. Superior
Description: As painting was the only medium for recreating the world until the early-19th century, some claimed that the invention of photography has since rendered it as obsolete. Painting’s defenders claim that the purpose was never to literally reproduce reality but to emphasize its ineffable characteristics. Lovers of photography decry its relegation to a mere method of documentation, advocating instead its profound aesthetic possibilities as its most essential purpose. The two have competed for nearly two centuries for dominance in landscape and portraiture. On Friday September 24th, a winner will be declared.
