Stories from the Camera, is an exhibition about pictures and the stories they have inspired. Drawn from the UNM Art Museum’s extensive photography collection these artworks were selected by distinguished former faculty and alumni and are featured in the recently published book, Stories form the Camera: Reflections on the Photograph, (UNM Press 2015). Through their own professional practice, the writers represent different generations of aesthetic voices and intellectual directions. Curated by Michele M. Penhall, this exhibition also provides an opportunity to see and consider firsthand one of the most significant university collections in the country.

Artists in the exhibition include Robert Adams, Diane Arbus, Matthew Brady, Julia Margaret Cameron, Linda Connor, Emmet Gowin, Mark Klett, Beaumont Newhall, Ralph Eugene Meatyard, Robert ParkeHarrison, John Plumbe, Robert Stivers, Hiroshi Sugimoto, Carrie Mae Weems, Gary Winogrand and Surrealist postcards by Hans Belmer, Marcel Duchamp, and Meret Oppenheim to name only a few.

With this exhibition, Out of Many, One, the museum takes a significant step in examining recent work by faculty in the diverse studio areas of the department. Extensive studio visits were conducted by the curators starting in early summer 2015 through the end of spring 2016 and a total of 48 works were chosen, with several entries consisting of groupings of smaller pieces. The themes that are highlighted among the works in this exhibition underscore the diversity and strength of the Department of Art’s studio faculty. The final groupings of light, mapping, portraiture, narrative contexts, abstraction, still life, installation, and performance are meant to bring the museum visitor’s attention to the visible traces in the work that convey the dynamic energy and creativity of the artists included and their ongoing conversations with (and responses to) the larger contemporary field in which they actively work and to which they contribute.
