Matthew Brandt sticky/dusty/wet
November 15, 2013 - March 9, 2014
This November, the Columbus Museum of Art presents photographer Matthew Brandt’s first one-person museum exhibition. Brandt is a Los Angeles-based artist who received his BFA from Cooper Union and MFA from UCLA. He has been the focus of critical attention for his bold, often playful experiments with photographic process into which he embeds unexpected elements from the real world – bubblegum, Kool-Aid, honeybees, dust, and water. In bringing such materials into his practice Brandt pushes photography’s boundaries and suggests a new lexicon for the medium. Brandt was named Forbes Top 30 under 30 in art and design.
