#memphisshared 11/08/2013 – 01/12/2014 Brooks Education Gallery


An exhibition held in conjunction with Shared Vision: The Sondra Gilman and Celso Gonzalas-Falla Collection of Photography that will feature a collection of Instagram photographs shared by the Memphis community. Today, advanced technology and photo-sharing apps have blurred the line between professional and amateur photographers. This exciting exhibition features the creative photography as shared by the Memphis community through Instagram. Held in conjunction with Shared Vision, an exhibition of photographs by leading photographers that represent the rich and diverse nature of the past one hundred years of photography, #MemphisShared was organized to involve the local community in adding a contemporary chapter that represents mobile photography.

In May of 2012, New York photographer Brian DiFeo curated a show of Instagram images, the first of its kind in the city, collaborating with W Hotels and the Instagram NYC community. In April of this year the media world was abuzz over the New York Times’ printing an Instagram photo on its Sunday front page. Apple sponsored iPhone shows and international awards were presented to recognized photojournalists for a Hipstamatic series: the argument is running full speed. How are smart phones and the apps that augment them changing the landscape of photography and the gallery world to boot? Almost as a backlash against the negative press Memphis experienced over the years, we as a city are now seeing month after month of recognition from these same media organizations for the saturation of creativity this funky DIY town has quietly been offering for years. It is no surprise that we would participate in the Instagram conversation.

Each woman displayed 50-plus small printed images from her Instagram file in various formats.
