Boundless: A California Invitational

through Jan 29
15 Oct, 2016 - 29 Jan, 2017

In October, MOPA will present Boundless: A California Invitational, the third triennial exhibition of contemporary California photographers. The triennial invitational began in 2010 as State of Mind and was followed in 2013 by Staking Claim. These exhibitions showcase the talent and diverse scope of artwork by photographers living within the museum’s home state.

The exhibition features 11 California artists with work created in the past five years. The artists are both established and emerging, and the variety of work is as varied as the state of California itself. Boundless embraces the spirit of the infinite, of having no restrains. The work explores and confronts the subjects and traditions of the past, re-imagining the medium in our time. The result is a dynamic exhibition that highlights the constant evolution of the art form.
