Fugitivart is a conceptual exhibition that explores the ideas of intentional impermanence in photography. The images are all unique in the ways that they express these concepts, but bring attention to the ideas just the same. All the prints in the exhibition are created to fade away in 6-18 months time. In addition to the exhibition, there will be a panel discussion exploring the concepts behind Fugitivart. Learn more at www.fugitivart.com.
