Made In Polaroid @ Phillips de PuryJuxtapoz // Thursday, 01 Sep 2011
Polaroid is honoring its founder Dr. Edwin Land’s passion for the arts with the launch of the Made in Polaroid exhibit. An art show featuring more than 50 pieces created by a mix of artists, designers, photographers, actors, and musicians including James Franco, Chase Jarvis, Marylin Minter, Alex Pardee, Hilary Pecis, and Dabs Myla.
All pieces will be auctioned with proceeds benefitting Free Arts NYC, a non-profit that provides arts and mentoring programs to under-served children.
The exhibit explores the infinite number of ways technology can enable creative expression. Featuring pieces that range from single mounted images to multi-print mosaics, each artist taps a different approach to tell a story with photos. All works were created exclusively using the Polaroid GL10 Instant Mobile Printer, the first product from Lady Gaga’s Grey Label line.
Made in Polaroid opens to the public on September 7 at Phillips de Pury & Company’s gallery at 450 West 15th Street in New York City, with works beig auctioned on September 14 at Phillips de Pury & Company’s other gallery location on 450 Park Avenue.
