ART | "Memory City" at Visual Studies Workshop 

In the exhibition "Memory City," Brooklyn-based photographers Alex Webb and Rebecca Norris Webb explore post-Kodak Rochester, meditating on time, memory, and the waning era of film. A portion of the exhibition fittingly consists of photos shot on Kodachrome, a color film once produced by Kodak that can now only be developed in black in white. Alex used the last of his supply of Kodachrome, the only film he used for decades before its discontinuation, to capture images of the city in which it was once created. Rebecca, too, pays homage to film by presenting contact sheets full of images of dresses worn by women on special occasions. The exhibition also includes color images of Rochester and portraits of the women who inhabit it.

Visual Studies Workshop will host a reception and book signing with the artists on Thursday, June 26, at Gallery R (100 College Avenue) from 7:30 to 9:30 p.m. "Memory City" runs through July 3 at Gallery R, open Wednesday through Saturday, from 1 to 5 p.m. For more information visit
