In conjunction with the exhibition Image Transfer: Pictures in a Remix Culture , Karl Haendel talks about his use of photography as both media and medium.
This exhibition spotlights evolving attitudes toward the appropriation, recuperation, and repurposing of extant photographic imagery. Artists, as both producers and consumers in today's vast image economy, freely adopt and adapt materials from myriad sources. Images culled from the Internet, magazines, newspapers, advertisements, television, films, personal and public archives, studio walls, and from other works of art are all fair game. Image Transfer brings together artists who divert commonplace, even ubiquitous, visual materials into new territories of formal and idiomatic expression.
Image Transfer: Pictures in a Remix Culture is curated by Henry Associate Curator Sara Krajewski and is a traveling exhibition presented by the Henry Art Gallery in partnership with Independent Curators International (ICI), New York, and circulated by ICI. The Presenting Sponsor for this exhibition is The Boeing Company. Additional support is generously provided by ArtsFund, 4Culture/King County Lodging Tax Fund, the Seattle Office of Arts & Cultural Affairs, and the Paul G. Allen Family Foundation.
