R.E.M.’s art director Chris Bilheimer has a collaborative photo exhibition with Athens photographer Jim Fiscus tonight at the the University of Georgia Lamar Dodd School of Art. The exhibition, titled “A Year on the Hill,” runs through Feb. 11 in Gallery 101 of the UGA Art school.
The exhibition features 10 single images and three triptychs, measuring from 3×4 to 8×8 feet. All photographs were taken with a view camera in multiple frames, which made possible the production of large size images. All the work on this project took place on The Hill in Athens, Georgia, between November of 2009 and the fall of 2010. The images in this exhibition have never been shown before
“It’s been really nice to work on images that get to be larger than the size of a CD,” said Chris. “Jim and I have been collaborating on this project for over a year, and we’re both really glad that people are finally getting an opportunity to see it.”
There is an opening reception tonight at 7 p.m. which is free and open to the public.
