Press Release [doc]

Calla Thompson’s art practice crosses media, examining the way power is enacted and exchanged in our culture.  The visual language and wry humor in her work are at once comforting and familiar, dislocating and suggestive. Thompson's work is exhibited throughout the United States and Canada, as well as in South America.  She has had solo exhibitions in Toronto, Washington DC New York City and her work has been selected for numerous national and international group exhibitions.  She has been the recipient of several grants and has been an artist in resident at Yaddo Artist Colony and Cooper Union in New York City.  Thompson’s work has appeared in catalogues and more recently in Robert Hirsh’s book Light and Lens: Photography in the Digital Age.

Calla Thompson received her MFA in Photography from Syracuse University and her BFA in Photography from the University of Ottawa (Canada) and is currently Assistant Professor of Photography at University of Maryland Baltimore County.
