Chemigram shows for rest of the year, including some you'll have to travel to

Man-Kit Lam, 2005

For those with a yen for travel, we've gathered a few shows you may want to catch before the year is out.  All include chemigrams either solely or in part or, in Ms Rossiter's case, include what might be called a chemigramic inflection - and for that reason alone they're all worth seeing, besides the utter beauty and mystery of them.  If we've missed your show, please post a comment and we'll fix it.

  1. I wonder if my work would be considered a chemogram. I guess it is really a hybrid....starting off as a normal c-print, and then bleached by chemicals to create abstaract imagery....look at my IMBLEACHMENTS at

  2. You're right Diane, they are chemigrams (we spell it with an 'i') - once you create imagery with photographic chemicals. Modifying a normal c-print in this way has a long history, from Edmund Teske to Nolan Preece, to take just the American branch of the movement. But if you like you can call them hybrids, or your lovely word, imbleachments. Thanks for sharing your site with us.
