Carmel Artists Ron Kern and Satch Exhibiting at Stutz Art Space

Ron Kern and Satch collaborated on a conceptual piece that is a part of the critically acclaimed group exhibition, curated by Andy Chen, “Social Currency, The Shared Photograph.”

Intertwining historic carte de visites and cabinet cards with contemporary portraits from Facebook, along with other contemporary and historical elements including a self-portrait made by Ron, the piece compares and contrasts the historical and contemporary use of portraits as the means to develop social currency.

Satch - “This is the first time that we have collaborated on a project of this size.  It was very exciting to see the piece come together.  This exhibit examines picture making as a part of our daily lives that we rely on which to communicate and create social interaction.”

Ron Kern - “The exhibit’s concept challenged me to take a closer look at the contemporary state of photography.  The incredible ease of producing a picture and making it immediately available for 24/7 viewing is transforming the very essence of photography.”
