William Wegman Exhibition at The Asheville Art Museum

August 23, 3:00 - 5:00 PM at The Asheville Art Museum, 2 South Pack Square in downtown Asheville NC - Opening Reception for Cubism and Other-isms by William Wegman. The exhibition is on view August 22, 2015 through January 24, 2016. 

William Wegman, one of the world's most renowned photographers, has been working on a project he calls Cubism and Other-isms, where with his trademark wry humor he mines art historical precedents to create images of startling beauty. Beginning in the early 1990s while making videos and films with his dogs standing in as human characters, the artist placed his subjects on elevated platforms in order to shoot them at eye level. Over the years, props in Wegman's photographs have taken many forms, but none so consistently as the cube.
