Last night I attended the Members Reception for the New England Photography Biennial at the Danforth Museum in Framingham. The show was curated by Francine Weiss, Curator and Editor for Loupe magazine for the Photographic Resource Center in Boston. Gathering together 76 works by 44 artists, the Biennial was large enough to feel representative of the exciting work going on in the New England area, but intimate enough to let the individual works shine.
The beautifully lit gallery brought out the best in the photos, and the curation grouped together images loosely by theme, but without letting theme define the work. The photos ranged from the very small to the very large, but no work became over-dominating, maintaining the flow from one image to the next.
It was exciting to see all these artists and photos brought together in the same room; I had seen a number of the works before, either through knowing the artists or seeing them in galleries, but the new context gave them a fresh perspective.
I came away from the show energized by the vibrancy of the work and the passion of the artists and ready to make more art.
