Epiphany Center for Arts is proud to announce the debut of its new exhibition space dedicated to photography, Slemmons Gallery, with the launch of The Chicago Cluster Project, organized by the artist and educator Jan Tichy and spanning nine exhibitions through the end of 2022. The Chicago Cluster Project – historical cameras for contemporary art and education – revolves around a collection of over 300 hundred historical cameras collected by photography curator and educator Rod Slemmons. The display of objects from the collection is accompanied by contemporary photography exhibitions by local photographers and educators working with cameras from the collection. The series opens with the exhibition Negatives, which Tichy enlarged from Slemmons’ black and white materials exposed in one of the panoramic cameras in the collection. He then recontextualized them to reflect on larger aspects of Slemmons’ work – photography and education – the driving concepts behind The Chicago Cluster Project.  The contemporary photography projects and the full camera archive are accessible online at www.thechicagocluster.organd on @thechicagocluster.
