Made in Polaroid Exhibit


Ready for a Polaroid-inspired art show? Polaroid is honoring its founder Dr. Edwin Land's passion for the arts with the launch of the Made in Polaroid exhibit. The show will feature more than 50 pieces created by a mix of artists, designers, photographers, actors and musicians who are united in their passion for creativity, all pieces will be auctioned with proceeds benefitting Free Arts NYC, a non-profit that provides arts and mentoring programs to under-served children.

So who will be participating? Among others, actor James Franco, artist Gary Baseman, and photographer Philip-Lorca DiCorcia.

The exhibit explores the infinite number of ways technology can enable creative expression. Featuring pieces that range from single mounted images to multi-print mosaics, each artist taps a different approach to tell a story with photos. All works were created exclusively using the Polaroid GL10 Instant Mobile Printer, the first product from Lady Gaga's Grey Label line.

Artist Joey Remmers created his piece called Entangled and said this about the show, “I had a lot of fun working with Polaroid and exploring the use of the GL10 as a new medium. I wanted to incorporate more traditional art methods with the use of the printer and kind of make them all flow together in the end. I think I was able to accomplish that and had a lot of fun with the project.”

The exhibit opens to the public on September 7 at Phillips de Pury & Company's gallery at 450 West 15th Street in New York City. All pieces from the exhibit will be auctioned on September 14 at Phillips de Pury & Company's gallery at 450 Park Avenue in New York City.
