5 Years of Aspect Initiative

In 2016, artist Steven Duede created a platform for showcasing contemporary photography with the ambitious title of Aspect Initiative. In a crowded landscape of on-line galleries, Aspect hoped to be a voice largely committed to art in New England. A few times a year, Aspect highlights the work of one photographic artist, including text and images. Over the past five years, Aspect has showcased some of the best photography being made in New England. Its roster represents a range of artists, subjects, and materials, affirming the strength of our regional photographic practice. This exhibition moves the works from the screen to the Museum walls, bringing the artists together in one space, and highlighting and celebrating recent work. It is a sampling of what New England has to offer with the knowledge that there is always much more to discover, and Aspect will be there to find it!

5 Years of Aspect Initiative includes the work of 33 photographers, highlighting a broad range of photographic practice.  The exhibition opens to the public on March 26.  Join the Danforth and the artists for a reception on Saturday, March 26, 6:00-8:00.  Open to the public, advance registration required, click here to register.
