Ctrl+P: Photography taken offline is back at Catherine Edelman Gallery! For our inaugural Ctrl+P exhibition in our West Town location, we will be showcasing the work of photographer Claire A. Warden in conjunction with our main exhibition Sandro Miller: I am Papua New Guinea. The exhibition will run from September 6 – November 9.
For Warden’s series 99 Moons, she uses a cameraless silver gelatin print process in the darkroom, producing one-of-a-kind prints through this method. Warden says:
The title of the series loosely references the 19th-century printmaker Tsukioka Yoshitoshi’s One Hundred Aspects of the Moon woodblock print series. However, the number 99 was chosen for its historical fluidity, sometimes considered “as good as forever” or infinite.
Claire A. Warden (b. Montreal, Quebec) is an artist working in Phoenix, Arizona. Her work explores intersecting ideas of identity, the other, and the psychology of knowledge and power. The constructed photograph is integral to her arts practice. She received her BFA in Photography and BA in Art History from Arizona State University. Claire’s work has been exhibited in the United States and abroad including solo exhibitions of Mimesis at the Center for Fine Art Photography, the Colorado Photographic Arts Center and Art Intersection. Learn more about Claire Warden’s work on our website.

Ctrl+P: Photography taken offline is an exciting venture at Catherine Edelman Gallery inspired by the hundreds of photographs we see on blogs and online galleries. Starting in January 2011, Ctrl+P provides further exposure for new artists we find while searching the web, exhibiting a small selection of one person’s work every two months, taking the pictures offline and putting them on the wall.
