CSULB Photography Professor Todd gray in solo exhibition

Posted on September 8, 2014 by School of Art

CSULB Photography Professor Todd Gray will have a solo exhibition at the Meliksetian Briggs gallery. Entitled Exquisite Terribleness, a photo installation created from the reexamination of his extensive photographic archive of images he’s made in Los Angeles and Ghana. “In this latest body of work, the fourth examination of this archive, Gray has re-imagined and literally re-framed the photos of Jackson together with his documentary work from Ghana, where he maintains a studio, using weathered, antique frames that once hung on the walls of homes in South Los Angeles. This resulting work is autobiographical, and uses the language and signifiers of popular culture and spectacle to draw in the viewer, blurring the boundaries of pop culture and fine art, aesthetics and rational structure and refusing to collapse into a simple binary opposition.” The exhibition will open September 11 and continue until October 18, 2014.
