Exhibition Dates:
October 20 – November 13, 2014

Inspired by the naming of an image taken by the Hubble telescope of a particularly small and deep part of the uni­verse, Ultra-Deep Field includes the work of nine contemporary art­ists that considers the vast, yet relative scales upon which contexts are constructed. Instead of searching for dimmer and more distant objects in the sky, the exhibition searches for more distant objects that may come by way of hand. 

Ultra-Deep Field invites discussion about the way art ob­jects and images are used to identify ‘the everyday’ by asking the viewer to become more active in the meaning making process. 

Exhibition Curator: Jason Judd
Jason Judd is the Co-Director of the Chicago art and contemporary practices site Make-Space.net, Art Editor for BITE Magazine, Registrar at the Rockford Art Museum, and a visual artist
