French for “black,” the term noir commonly relates to films with stark black and white lighting, hardboiled detectives, sexy femme fatales, and dangerous back alleys, plus murder, mayhem, and other dastardly deeds. For this open call exhibition, Uforge encouraged artists to make work that was inspired by these concepts, from highcontrast photography and smoky portraiture to bold abstractions in grayscale. Some artists have drawn from noir films, murder plots, and mystery novels, or more abstract concepts of light/dark and cinematic composition.
Exhibiting artists include: Leah Abrahams, Daniel Breslin, Quenby Bucklaew, Maggie Carberry, Yvonne Christian, Sandrine Colson-Inam, Jack Dillhunt, Nathan Evans, James Flynn, Jannine Fonte, Mary Fries, Arthur Grau, Marnie Jain, Alex Kittle, Anne McCaffrey, Michelle Mendez, Karen Merritt, Heather M. Morris, Lior Neiger, Cristina Rosa Nelson, Carlyn Peters, Remi Pico, Eli Portman, Tamara Rohrer, Paul Shelasky, Michelle Stevens, Paul Theriault, Matt Towler, Ginny Zanger
