EWING, NJ-- In today's digital age of selfies, Instagram, and Snapchat, what does photography mean to teenagers? After a visit to TCNJ's Art Gallery to experience the exhibition, An Unfixed Image: The Photographic Across Media, Trenton Central High School students will create their own artworks exploring what photography means today. Their artworks will be exhibited at TCNJ’s TrentonWorks Gallery, located at 5 South Broad Street in Trenton, from April 20 to May 2, 2015. The opening reception for the Trenton Central High School students’ exhibition is Thursday, April 23, from 5 to 7 p.m.
The exhibition An Unfixed Image, curated by TCNJ professor of art, Anita Allyn, features work by nine contemporary artists who work with diverse methods and materials in order to reflect and challenge the ubiquity of photographic imagery. The high school students will learn to discuss the concepts of the exhibition and reflect upon how they relate to photographic imagery (digital and analog) in their everyday lives. Following the gallery visit, TCHS students will participate in a visual art workshop led by TCNJ Art Department adjunct faculty and community artist, Michelle Nugent, to create mixed media visual reflections inspired from the conceptual and physical content of the exhibition.
TCNJ’s TrentonWorks Gallery is a space for community engaged learning and research and for the exhibition of socially engaged art related to the Trenton community. It is open Monday through Friday 9:30 to 1 p.m. and by appointment. Street parking is available in addition to a public lot across the street from the space.
