John Eckblad, “Stone Upon Stone; Construction, Destruction, and Evolution in the Built World”
Eckblad, an art collector and exhibition producer, will present photographs and commentary from his new catalog depicting industrialization and ‘organized work’. His collection includes prints of coal mining, iron and steel making, textile and machine manufacture, ship building, and of labor and life. Some of the tensions depicted in the works include the “pitting of capitalist pride against social unrest and the groundbreaking industrial development against the profound human and environmental consequences” noted Patricia Phagan of the Frances Lehman Loeb Art Center.
