Eliot Dudik Broken Land / Still Lives
October 9 - November 4, 2015
Lecture & reception: Wednesday, October 21
This exhibition of large-scale photographs by eastern Virginia based artist, Eliot Dudik, includes prints from two recent series: Broken Land and Still Lives. In Broken Land, Dudik photographs American Civil War battlefields depicting them as contemporary landscapes in order to explore the similarities in cultural and political conflict between now and the time period that led up to the War. He will also be sharing work from his Still Lives series, portraits of Civil War re-enactors at the culmination of their performance. Dudik is a Visiting Assistant Professor of photography at the College of William & Mary in Williamsburg, Virginia. His work was recently featured on CNN, and has been exhibited around the country. He was the recipient of the 2014 PhotoNOLA Prize and was selected for the Magenta Foundation's Flash Forward 2015 festival.
