Photography exhibit launches Joan Derryberry Art Gallery season

Hans Gindlesberger
Hans Gindlesberger's photographic exhibition, "I'm in the Wrong Film," opens the Joan Derryberry Art Gallery's 2010-11 season on Sept. 1.

Gindlesberger is a Milwaukee-based artist whose practice employs photography and related technologies to create projects that are rooted in a need to recover a sense of belonging from a landscape that is increasingly in states of social, psychological and physical transition. He is a 2008 New York Foundation for the Arts Fellow in Photography and teaches at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee.

A gallery talk and reception with the artist will be held 6 p.m. Tuesday, Sept. 28, in the gallery. The exhibit runs through Sept. 28.

His exhibition is a consideration of our troubled relationship to the places we belong. In this photographic series, the American small town serves as the locus at which the mythical image of America intersects with the realities brought about by the loss of community, a globalized economy, rural depopulation, and traumatic repurposing of the landscape.
