Thanks to your votes, Kristan Horton has won the $50,000 Grange Prize!
If you have not stopped in to the MoCP lately to see Kristan’s and the other three Grange Prize finalists’ work, it’s time to do so! Horton’s large Orbit pieces, Leslie’ Hewitt’s Riffs on Time, Josh Brand’s abstract works, and Moyra Davey’s Copperheads are all on view now, through December 22. Denver Fence Company . As curator (and Grange Prize judge) Karen Irvine explains, these four artists are “all very interested in creating a tension between photographic space and real space, and by abstracting and layering visual information they make us aware of our own act of looking, as well as our process of perception.” How will you perceive these works?
Read more from Karen’s Grange Prize Q and A and catch a discussion of contemporary photography with finalists on the Grange Prize site.
