The Fulginiti Pavilion Gallery - Andrea Modica


The Fulginiti Pavilion Gallery 
Andrea Modica exhibition - "Human Being"  curated by Simon Zalkind
March 5th - May 14th, 2015
Opens March 5th 4-7pm

The opening on March 5th will include a conversation, titled “Hidden and Revealed: The Photograph as Evidence,” at 6:00pm with between Eric Paddock, Curator of Photography at the Denver Art Museum, and Simon Zalkind, Curator of Exhibitions, at the Fulginiti Pavilion.

Human Being grew out of a study on a group of over one hundred skeletons secretly buried a century ago. They were discovered in 1993, on the grounds of the Colorado Mental Health Institute, by prison inmates who were breaking ground to build the extension of an asylum for the criminally insane.

“Photographs for this exhibit were generously loaned by the Denver Art Museum to the Center for Bioethics and Humanities,” said Simon Zalkind. “We hope that this exhibit will encourage a conversation about historical and aesthetic dimensions of the photograph as evidence and elegy, within the context of Modica’s ‘Human Being’ – a tragic story of the forgotten lives and the deaths of people who lived in Colorado over a century ago.”
