Members' Day Sep 7/16



MEMBERS' DAY  SEP 7, 2016                                         

with Presenter Kim-Lee Kho



This Presentation will cover the expanding and diverse use of photos by “non-photographer” contemporary artists,  plus some of Kim's recent work.

The use and integration of photography into contemporary visual artworks that are not “photography” is not well-understood, but it is a rich, lively and incredibly diverse part of contemporary art in sometimes surprising – even hidden – ways. Using photographic material and playing with how to use it, is a deeply contemporary way to work with imagery and perception and the way we experience the world now.

As a multidisciplinary artist, presenter Kim-Lee Kho works in various photo-based mixed media forms herself including prints, video, sculpture and textile; she also teaches the subject. 


Photo-based art is as full of creative and technical challenges as more traditional media like painting and drawing. There are also as many approaches to it as there are artists!


The meeting will be in the usual place (Markham Village Library) and at the usual time (10 a.m. until noon). Looking forward to seeing you there.
