In April 2014, the Julius Shulman Institute at Woodbury University will present Grant Mudford: Building at the Woodbury University Hollywood Gallery (WUHO). The exhibition runs from Thursday, April 3 through Sunday, April 27. The exhibition focuses primarily on work Mudford completed in the 1970s, a series of compelling abstractions of commercial and industrial structures in Los Angeles.
Mudford is the 2014 recipient of the Julius Shulman Institute Excellence in Photography Award, which will be presented at an awards ceremony and public reception on Thursday, April 3. He joins illustrious past honorees Iwan Baan (2010), Richard Barnes (2011), Pedro E. Guererro (2012) and Catherine Opie (2013).
“Grant Mudford deconstructs the elemental components of architecture, transforming the rebar, concrete and stucco of ordinary building sites into poignant statements about frailty and strength,” says exhibition curator Michael Duncan. “He is the most accomplished photographer currently working in Los Angeles: a master of light and composition who changes the way we think about structure itself.”
