Small Magic:
Photographic Transformations


Curated by Nate Larson for Maryland Art Place
February 3 - March 19, 2011

Featuring artwork by Adam Ekberg, Peter Happel Christian, John Mann, Libby Rowe, Christine Shank, Michael Sherwin, and Marni Shindelman

Small Magic examines the connections between seven contemporary artists working with physical materials on a small scale to thoughtfully construct sets as a staging ground for photographic images. The resulting photographs and video works transform the ordinary through this process of construction, intervention, and fabrication to suggest new and inventive ways of understanding our perceptions of the world. This exhibition asks us to reconsider the small spaces, cultivates a renewed sense of the playfulness of materials, and uncovers the magic on the periphery of our daily lives.


Public programs for the exhibition were generously supported by the Photography Department and Academic Services at the Maryland Institute College of Art.
