Mary Lum, Museum, 2015
Yancey Richardson Gallery is pleased to present our summer group exhibition Interventions, on view through August 24, 2018. The exhibition explores the inventive ways in which artists have transformed the photographic print from the transparent support for an image to a material to be physically manipulated.

The show comprises photographs and photographic postcards that are cut, torn, folded, crumpled, scratched, burned, taped, painted and collaged. Many of the pieces were made with the irreversibility more typical of painting and drawing than photography. In each case, the final work carries the mark of the individual artist’s hand, resulting in a work that combines image and object.
