The seventh edition of the University of Miami’s student-curated exhibition will feature Photography as Experience, with works from the Lowe’s collection, and will be on view for a full academic year, starting Thursday, April 28. Blasted Allegories, considers the way photography resists decisive conclusions. Serendipitous details, unexpected gestures, and strange parallels occur across the photographs featured. Spanning the history of the medium, works by Garry Winogrand, Gregory Crewdson, Walker Evans, Eadweard Muybridge, Nan Goldin, Weegee, and others come together as suggestive examples of how photography shapes human experience. Figuratively challenging the notion of the static image, this exhibition investigates the dynamism of photography. Exhibition runs April 28, 2016 – April 27, 2017.
