FEATURED SPEAKER

Liz Deschenes

Filter Photo is delighted to present Liz Deschenes as the Featured Speaker for the 2020 Filter Photo Festival.

 

"Liz Deschenes is a photographer who, in the best modernist tradition, pushes against the basic terms by which photography is conventionally defined: instantaneity, veracity, fixity, or reproducibility,” writes curator and critic Matthew Witkovsky. Indeed, Deschenes uses durational photogramatic exposure to create unique, shifting surfaces that frequently function as sculptural or architectural rather than photographic objects.

Liz Deschenes has exhibited her work regularly since receiving her BFA in Photography in 1988, from the Rhode Island School of Design in Providence, RI. The first comprehensive survey exhibition of her photographs, organized by Eva Respini, was on view at the ICA Boston in 2016; for the occasion of that exhibition, a monograph was published by Prestel. She has most recently mounted solo exhibitions at Miguel Abreu Gallery, New York; Campoli Presti, London and Paris, as well as a group exhibition at the Punta Della Dogana, where her work was exhibited with Berenice Abbott’s series – Changing NY. 

Her work is represented in the collections of the Walker Art Center, Minneapolis; Centre Pompidou, Paris; Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden, Washington, DC; The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York; Museum of Modern Art, New York; The Art Institute of Chicago; Whitney Museum of American Art, New York; Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, New York; and San Francisco Museum of Modern Art.
