Jessica Ferguson: Museum of Memory at U of L

"My work is slow, handbuilt, and cumulative, rather like the layering of dust of memories over time."

Presence, Absence & Pinhole Photography

The University of Louisville Hite Art Institute is pleased to announce an exhibition of pinhole photography by Jesseca Ferguson of Boston, Massachusetts, titled “Museum of Memory” in Gallery X of Schneider Hall Galleries on Belknap Campus.

Ferguson’s photography alludes to the passage of time, and to what she refers to as a “private interior library” which she believes serves as a paradigm for collective and personal memory. The work exhibited combines 19th, 20th, and 21st century photographic techniques.

Ms Ferguson will be a visiting artist at the Hite in September and present the Barbara Bullitt Christian Memorial Lecture titled “Presence, Absence, and Pinhole Photography” Thursday, September 18 at 6:30 pm in the Hite Galleries. A reception to meet the artist, beginning at 5:00 pm that afternoon, will precede her talk. For further information about Ms. Ferguson or Barbara Bullitt Christian Lecture, contact the Schneider Hall Galleries at (502) 852-6794.
