External conditions – climate, light, heat, cold, location – may change materials into something new and unexpected. Expand and Contract thinks about photographic practice in similar terms, exploring how the melding (or separation) of various materials and perspectives may shift our sensorial experience.

Beyond its materiality, photography finds itself in the most public and the fiercely private arenas – from popular media, to institutional archives, art institutions, commercial spaces, on official documentation, or in precious family albums. In that sense, photography can be seen through its ability to function in and with various fields of practice, systems and discourses.

Considering such extended functions and contexts of the photographic field, and photography’s ability to be both a singular object and a vital part of countless areas of visual culture, this show invited submissions for works and projects that consider the relationships between photographic technologies and other visual disciplines and media, including, but not limited to, 3d and 4d spaces and objects, sculpture, painting, performance and craft.
