Redux Contemporary Art Center is thrilled to present Instant Gratification, a group exhibition curated by Savannah, GA based collective, Aint–Bad and Ashley Jones. Redux’s second exhibition of 2018 highlights the unique curatorial perspective of an artist collective striving to further the conversation of new, photographic art by encouraging the collection of and appreciation for photography by way of accessible and affordable publications.

In a digital age, we are constantly connected and seeking instant gratification; others however, have returned to the magic of instant film photography. With this process, there are no do-overs; an image is created straight from the camera and develops in the palm of your hand.

Today, many contemporary artists are looking again to instant film as a viable option for image making. Whether your purpose is instant gratification or to disconnect from cumbersome equipment, we want to see how you are embracing the instant image in a contemporary world.
