Opening: Hand / Eye

RSVP on Facebook.

Whether they’re gelatin silver prints or daguerreotypes, there’s one thing that most all photographs have in common: they’re flat. For a new group exhibition at form & concept, ten artists from across the United States shatter this convention by applying craft media to photography—and vice versa. Hand/Eye presents images with the texture and volume of sculptures, vaulting a medium that’s often trapped behind glass into the viewer’s sphere.

TONIGHT: Ppoacher Ppoacher, Sevda Choir & NMSA

Ppoacher Ppoacher- Fearsome Friend Tour Launch- Matron Records- Form and Concept Gallery- Santa Fe New Mexico

Performance
ppoacher ppoacher & Sevda Choir

Thursday, September 6, 7:30-9 pm

The gallery will ask for a $5-$25 donation in support of the artists at the door.

Caitlin Brothers is going places—specifically, all across the Southeastern United States. “The new tour passes through Oklahoma, Arkansas, Missouri, Kentucky, Louisiana, and Texas,” says the Santa Fe musician, who performs under the moniker ppoacher ppoacher. “I’m trying to split it between familiar territory and places I’ve never explored.” That’s a good way to describe her musical repertoire for an upcoming Matron Records tour launch event at form & concept. Brothers and her new bandmate Nathan Smerage will perform songs from the band’s 2017 debut album, along with some new material they’ve written together. She’ll also sing traditional Balkan music with Santa Fe’s Sevda Choir, which welcomed her into its ranks a few months ago.
