5:00-7:00 PM – One Day Reception and Collaborative Discussion
5:30 PM – Collaborative Discussion
Dustin Shores, MFA candidate in Photography and Andy Hayt, MA candidate in Art History are interested in exploring the inherently fractured nature of image production and consumption in the contemporary moment as a means of reformulating the relationship between the artist, viewer, and object. The images in this show are the result of Shores’ journey across the urban environment of Tucson, Arizona, via two major boulevards. Hayt has selected and sequenced a series of images as a means of articulating our concerns. Join us this Friday, as we attempt to consider the fragmented nature of photographic practice.
Andy Hayt is a second year MA candidate in Art History at the University of Arizona. He received his BA in Art and Architectural History from the University of Arizona in 2015. His research interests focus on the moments of intersection between architecture and photography from 1839 to the present, and the manner in which these instances of overlap function to construct an archive of the built environment.
Dustin Shores was born in 1983 and grew up in the rolling foothills of North Carolina. He received his BFA in Fine Arts Photography from Winthrop University, located in Rock Hill, South Carolina in 2009. Shores is a working artist and arts educator. He currently resides in Tucson, Arizona and is pursuing an MFA in Photography at The University of Arizona.
