Will Wilson Pop-Up Exhibit

Friday, March 29, 2013Sunday, April 7, 2013
North Building - Level 7
Included in general admission.

Will Wilson is the DAM’s artist-in-residence for March. Will is a photographer who creates tintype portraits as part of his current project, “Critical Indigenous Photographic Exchange.”  

Visit the photography gallery on level seven of the North Building, where a one-week only, pop-up exhibit will be on view. The gallery will feature a selection of the prints he made in the artist-in-residence studio during his week on-site, when he led artist demonstrations and created visitors' tintype portraits.

The exhibit opens during Untitled #55 (Bound) on March 29, the day it is installed, and runs through April 7.

Wilson challenges classic photographic portraiture of Native Americans, such as work by Edward S. Curtis. Utilizing a combination of historic tintype and contemporary digital processes, Will creates documents that reposition the indigenous image through a photographic exchange with his sitters.

Free with museum general admission. No reservations required.
