Newspace Center for Photography is pleased to present the 2014 Themed Exhibition – The Art of Work. Selected by Julia Dolan, the Minor White Curator of Photography at the Portland Art Museum, and John Jay, director of W+K Garage, and Global Co-Executive Creative Director of Wieden+Kennedy, images in the exhibition were created by 17 photographers working on assignment. Whether each image was ultimately used by the client or not, all were originally made at another’s behest and were selected on the basis of artistic merit and the ability to convey the unique perspective of the artist.
This exhibition was designed to give photographers the opportunity to share assignment-based work with a wider audience and present the work in a different context than its original intent. Photographers included are:
Neil DaCosta | Scott Dalton | Maia Flore | Eugénie Frerichs | Tom Hassler | Joshua Hobson | Carter Johnston | Kristianne Koch | Mark Mahaney | Tasia Markoff | Robbie McClaran | Christopher Onstott | Shawn Records | Alan Thornton | Allan Visnick | Bruce Wolf | Dave Woody
