Adjunct Instructor Russell Phillips and Photo Lab Manager/Adjunct Instructor Jeff Burk have work on exhibit at the Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art in Kansas City, Missouri from July 24, 2010 – January 2, 2011. The exhibition, entitled “Thinking Photography: Five Decades at the Kansas City Art Institute,” features photographic works by twenty-seven notable alumni, acknowledging the rich and diverse history of the KCAI photography program from the 1960s to the present.
From the brochure:
“One aspect of the KCAI program remained consistent over these decades: an emphasis on artistic freedom to explore the full range of photography’s expressive potential. As a means to record or critique the world around us – or a way of creating new visual worlds – “thinking photography” means appreciating the multivalent aspects of the medium as image, object, idea and process. The quality and variety of works on view clearly suggest the importance of KCAI’s photography program. These artists have significantly helped shape our collective understanding of the medium.”
The exhibit coincides with KCAI’s 125th anniversary celebration.
Other details can be found at the Nelson-Atkins Museum website.
The College of DuPage television program “Images” also highlighted Burk and Phillips in their November, 2010 show.
