Gallery Talk: Site Unseen

Join artist Gregory Vershbow for a gallery talk in his exhibition, Site Unseen. Vershbow’s large-scale color photographs explore the interactions of art objects within environments and circumstances ordinarily beyond public view. In storage facilities and conservation laboratories and at monuments under restoration, Vershbow photographs art objects wrapped in plastic, protected by foam, nested in boxes and tucked away in dark corners. Vershbow will discuss the experience of navigating these transitional spaces and some of the technical aspects of creating the photographs.

Vershbow’s work has been exhibited in solo and group shows on the east coast and in Europe.
