Tweevening with Ken Bloom: A Thousand Words
December 5, 2017 | 6:30-8:00 PM
Main Gallery

 

The collection-based photography exhibition A Thousand Words has drawn large audiences since the show opened in May 2017. The exhibition is based on the principle that the artist should be as close to the subject as possible, and introduces local, regional and national artists of diverse backgrounds and reflects an important point of view in the developing character of the Museum's collection. Ken Bloom will provide an overview of the process and strategy that underlies the show and will engage with the audience in discussion of individual artworks.

 

Biography

 

Ken Bloom is the Director of the Tweed Museum of Art. Ken Bloom’s work in photography has taken him to Japan, Bali, Greece and culturally dynamic areas of the U.S., including the Carolinas, West Texas, Eastern Pennsylvania, New England and Colorado. Introduced to photography at an early age, Bloom has been practicing for over 40 years.


Before formalizing his education in photography with a graduate degree from the New York University / International Center of Photography Program (1985), Bloom had been a student of history, biology, anthropology and Japanese Studies; all fields that have contributed to the making of social documentary photographs.


Bloom served as Executive Director several art institutions across the US, and has been the Director of the Tweed Museum of Art, on the campus of the University of Minnesota Duluth since 2004.
