Migdalia Valdes - Every Day in Black and White - (April 4 - May 23, 2009), is a solo exhibition featuring sculpture, photography, and mixed media journals, curated by the lovely and talented Kevin Chen.
Ten years ago, Migdalia pledged to create at least one photograph a day for the rest of her life. The goals of this ambitious undertaking were simple enough, to keep in constant practice, develop artistic stamina, and eventually erode altogether the stubborn division between life and art. Through steady habit, the photographer not only advanced her craft, but also developed a new way of seeing, learning to shape her memory visually. This exhibition highlights the best of her black and white memory book, pulling together fleeting images of local streets, bathers, frozen trees, and other scraps of a life shifting and progressing with eyes wide open.There is more information about the show and Migdalia on our website, as well as a short video compilation of some of the images here:http://www.theintersection.org/calendar/program_gallery.php
The opening party is this coming Saturday night, April 4, from 6 to 9pm.
