Bill Jones, Waking Dream

A Primary ScotiaBank CONTACT Photography Festival Exhibition

Exhibition Dates: May 8 to June 8 2018

The John B. Aird Gallery is delighted to present a primary solo exhibition for the 2018 Scotiabank CONTACT Photography Festival by the renowned American artist, Bill Jones, entitled: Bill Jones: Waking Dream.

This exhibition represents the culmination of a multimedia project by New York-based artist Bill Jones that traces the first hundred years of photography, from its invention in 1839 to its modernist triumphs in the early 20th century. The exhibition integrates still and moving imagery and a wide range of media techniques to reinterpret historical works. Looking to tbehe composite images of 19th-century British photographer Henry Peach Robinson and the sequenced motion studies of Robinson’s contemporary Eadweard Muybridge, through to the advent of cinema, Jones maps early analogue history onto the contemporary digital landscape.
