October 21–November 17, 2016
Infinite Replica features photography by Chris Cox, 2012 Hope graduate and the inaugural Borgeson Artist in Residence at the college. In describing the exhibition, Cox noted that his show “utilizes the tools of photographic production to address the increasingly mediated environment.” Using his personal archive as source material, Cox seeks to ask questions about image production, circulation and distribution while also attempting to situate himself “within the collective image environment and exploit the viewers shared understanding of photographic production.”
Cox is an artist living and working in New York and received his MFA in photography from Cranbrook Academy of Art in 2016. He recently had solo exhibitions at the University of Toledo and Neon Heater in Findlay, Ohio. His work has also been featured in recent group exhibitions at Mint Collective in Columbus, Ohio, and Cranbrook Art Museum in Bloomfield Hills. He is the self-published author of three artist books, most recently Future Research (revisited).
The Borgeson Artist in Residence program is hosted by the college’s Department of Art and Art History, and was created through the generosity of Hope alumni Nancy and Clarke Borgeson. The 12-week summer residency supports the creation of new work through the provision of a stipend as well as studio and living space on Hope’s campus. The artist in residence meets with department students and alumni, and concludes the residency with a solo exhibition and artist’s lecture at the De Pree Art Center and Gallery.
