Light Work is pleased to present New Voices: Recent Acquisitions from the Light Work Collection. The exhibition brings together photographs by former Light Work Artists-in-Residence and Light Work Grant Recipients that have been generously donated by the artists we have supported. Featuring over 4,000 works of art, the Light Work Collection consists primarily of work made by artists who have participated in the Artist-in-Residence Program and past Light Work Grant recipients. Pulled from the Light Work Collection, the exhibition highlights work by Jennifer Garza-Cuen, Takahiro Kaneyama, Sara Macel, John Mann, Zanele Muholi, Flurina Rothenberger, Hrvoje Slovenc, Pacifico Silano, Maija Tammi, and Mila Teshaieva.
The Light Work Collection consists primarily of work made by artists who have participated in the Artist-in-Residence Program and past Light Work Grant recipients. Because we encourage participation by a variety of emerging and under-represented artists, Light Work’s collection is an extensive and diverse archive for the mapping of trends and developments in contemporary photography. This noteworthy collection includes all genres of expression found in contemporary photography, including documentary, abstract, experimental, and conceptual work. Many of the images capture and document the social history of the Central and Upstate New York regions. The collection also serves as an important document of Light Work’s history of support for artists and their creative process.
