Making Trouble: Hands-on Photography

February 3 – March 19, 2022

Making Trouble: Hands-on Photography brings together a selection of photographs from the museum’s collection that have been altered either digitally or by hand. Made in the spirit of experimentation and intervention, the photographs on view demonstrate how photographers have expanded or challenged traditional understandings of photography.

This exhibition was curated by Emily Berkes and Emilie Luckett, MA candidates in art history enrolled in a curatorial practicum course led by Hope Saska, chief curator and director of academic engagement.

This exhibition and programming is generously supported by CU Boulder Student Arts and Cultural Enrichment fees and CU Art Museum members.
