Wonderers October 7- December 12, 2010 Artists: Abby Banks Cutter Collective Richard Gilles Justine Kurland Joel Sternfeld Kyer Wiltshire Guest Curator: Matthias Geiger "Wonderers" are individuals traveling via train-hopping or mobile home, living in utopian communities, gathering at outdoor festivals, dwelling in communal housing projects and forming fellowships over brief and extended periods of time. They are driven by an urge to explore and experience the wonders of the world outside of the mainstream culture. We can observe this in the photographs included in this exhibition, which are filled with a sense of adventure, risk, freedom and raw creativity and beauty. We encounter collectives, tribes and bands of outsiders. We are invited to meet these wanderers to catch a glimpse of their unconventional lifestyles and countercultural values. They may give us pause to re-envision and re-imagine our own lives, families and communities.
