Partner News: Woodbury University

"Beyond the Assignment" at the Julius Shulman Institute

The exhibition Beyond the Assignment: Defining Photographs of Architecture and Design will be showing at WUHO (Woodbury University Hollywood) Gallery from October 5 to November 1, with a public reception on Saturday, October 5 from 6 to 8 pm. A panel discussion will proceed the reception, and will be held at LACE (Los Angeles Contemporary Exhibitions).

Curated by photographer Bilyana Dimitrova, Beyond the Assignment examines the work of ten of today's leading architectural photographers in the United States who respond to the image making legacy of their predecessors, such as Julius Shulman and Ezra Stoller, while also challenging our basic understanding of architectural photography as a practice. The exhibition looks at the way architectural photographers use visual storytelling, technical precision, and a unique visual sensibility to shape the way we see the build environment. These photographers move "beyond the assignment" and often help to immortalize today's architecture and design.

The exhibition's featured artists include Peter Aaron, Bilyana Dimitrova and Lara Swimmer.

An accompanying panel discussion will take place on October 5 at 5pm at LACE.

For more information, see the exhibition website.
