Gallery Talk: Site Unseen

Thursday, September 5, 2013
06:00 PM–07:00 PM
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. 

About the Artist

Vershbow received his MFA from the Massachusetts College of Art and Design in 2010 and his BA from Hampshire College in 2006. He is a 2011 alumnus of the Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture. He has taught photography at the Maryland Institute College of Art, and currently teaches at the International Center of Photography. Vershbow’s work has been exhibited in solo and group shows on the east coast and in Europe. His work can be found in permanent collections including The Art Institute of Chicago, The Getty Museum, The Museum of Fine Arts Boston, and the National Academy of Sciences.
