An Unfixed Image: The Photographic Across Media will explore the nature of the photographic image and its relationship to embodiment as an object. From its inception, the photograph has been duplicitous as it has existed as an image and an object, referenced the real and the fictional, and operated indexically and specifically. The ten artists in the exhibition – Brendan Fowler, Lothar Hempel, Leslie Hewitt, Elad Lassry, Marlo Pascual, Eileen Quinlan, Mariah Robertson, John Stezaker, Sara VanDerBeek, and Letha Wilson – create works that engage a porous relationship between analog and digital practices while raising crucial questions about visual strategies and the materiality of the photographic image. Working with diverse methods and materials, these works reflect and destabilize photography’s ubiquity.

So, Einstein and Picasso walk into a bar, and… The punch line to this joke is in The Pennington Players’ production of this imaginative comedy, written by comedian Steve Martin (yes, that Steve Martin.) While the play is not exactly a classic, you can’t get more museum quality than these two classic visionary figures, one who is on the verge of publishing his Theory of General Relativity and one who is close to painting Les Demoiselles d’Avignon—his ground-breaking foray into modern art. And you can’t get funnier than this imaginary meeting between the two in a bar at the turn of the 20th Century. Join us, faster than the speed of light, for a Post-show Talkback on Friday, May 1st. Also, at Noon and 2:00 pm there will be a scene from "Picasso at the Lapin Agile" (Performed by the Pennington Players at the Bainbridge House).
