jdc Fine Art: a mid+west art dealer specializing in content-driven contemporary art.
Who we are & what we care about:
jdc Fine Art (est. 2011) is dedicated to content-driven contemporary art by established and emerging artists who specialize in photography. We work with national and international artists, and champion those making art to serve a higher purpose. We exhibit work that marks our time, repositions us so as to see from another vantage, calls for re-evaluation of accepted norms, and overall inspires reflection and dialog. Aesthetically, we gravitate towards narrative, figurative work. Overarching themes include: the portrait; beauty and the poetics of the world; the every day; the image as document, memorial, snapshot, even lie; alternative or plural realities; and socio-political or international issues.
A number of our artists hybridize their work; beyond photographic prints, viewers will encounter photo-dependent or lens-driven works, such as artists' books, videos, objects, installations, and the like. An increasing number of our artists aim to produce more limited editions and unique works.
