Artist-in-Residence | Rachel Phillips

Vanishing Point

EXHIBIT DATES:  JANUARY 17 - FEBRUARY 23, 2014
OPENING RECEPTION:  JANUARY 23, 6-8PM

For her Artist-in-Residency at RayKo Photo Center in San Francisco, Rachel Phillips acted as a curator and facilitator.  She contacted the Phantom Artists’ League—a collective of usually invisible, you might even say dematerialized artists—and asked them to use the resources provided by RayKo during the residency to manifest work interpreting the theme “Vanishing Point.”

The result is a diverse mix of work—from photograms to 3D photographs and installation—that teases our conventions about what photography, and the ubiquitous Group Show, are.  Says Phillips, “I had moments of panic while curating this show.  I felt like I was herding cats, like my parameters were being completely ignored!  But strangely, the more the project progressed, the more I could imagine that the work being made by these five artists could somehow be… my own.”
