Laura Plageman: Response

June 10 - August 6, 2023

Curated by Louisa Gloger

Oakland-based artist Laura Plageman creates vivid photographs of the natural world, mediated through re-photography, image layering, and collage. Recording and challenging perception are at the core of her compositions, where time is presented as an array of discontinuous, simultaneous moments. Plageman’s work conveys an imagined experience of a landscape, reflecting on the interconnectedness of nature. This exhibition combines photographs from across Plageman’s oeuvre and includes new work in her Response series.

Plageman has exhibited in galleries and institutions across the United States and internationally at venues including San Francisco’s de Young Museum, the Houston Center for Photography, and Seattle’s Photographic Center Northwest. She received her BA from Wesleyan University in Middletown, CT, and her MFA from California College of the Arts, where she has since held various academic appointments.
