presented an ambitious 2-part program of new technology / mixed media and classical photography, reaching across 130 years of photo-related art. Through the juxtaposition of black and white classical photography with the work of artists who are transforming silver gelatin print into digitized imagery, mixing photography with other media and using the fluid medium of the Internet, we were hoping to challenge people to examine the relationships between past and future in art.
THE CLASSICAL EYE AND BEYOND built on FotoFest's tradition of uncovering significant classical work never seen in the United States. At the same time, we were celebrating the future and photography's role in contemporary video, digital, and Web-based art.
