Publisher’s Description: 

For its sixth exhibition, Pier 24 Photography presents Secondhand, featuring artists who build repositories of found images or work within existing archives, from which they appropriate, construct, edit, and sequence in order to create something entirely new. The exhibition guide includes titles for each of the works on display, artwork reproductions, and images of Pier 24 Photography’s unique installations.

The works presented in Secondhand resonate with our visual culture's obsession with communicating through selecting and editing existing material, allowing the distinction between curator and creator to become less defined. With more than one hundred and fifty years of printed photographs at their disposal, along with the millions of digital pictures uploaded daily, the artists included in Secondhand critically examine the role of images in our society.
