Oli Kellett: Fellow Humans

September 10 - October 31

Kellett’s largescale photographs contrast the anonymity of urban space with the individuality of human experience. The scale of these photographs captures tangible human expression and allows the viewer to recognise a moment of conscious contemplation in their lives.

Kellett´s journey to find the perfect light sees him walking the streets for days before setting up his large format architectural camera and waiting to capture these intensely private moments. The way the buildings frame his photographs and his focus on the light creates a cinematic quality, providing a dramatic architectural backdrop to these unstaged scenes. An admirer of the great American painter Edward Hopper, who famously reflected American life in silent spaces and melancholic moments, Kellett´s mesmerizing photographs of everyday people waiting at crossroads provide us with a powerful contemporary metaphor.

Kellett´s interrogation into deciphering a series of the same image is influenced by The Dusseldorf School and artists such as Thomas Struth as well as the American landscape photographer Mark Ruwedel. Although he uses the crossroads as a conceptual framework with which to work, these photographs reveal Kellett´s deep interest in the human psyche.

The Cross Road Blues series began in 2016 when Kellett was visiting Los Angeles during the lead-up to the 2016 presidential election and the country was at a political crossroads. The series has continued to evolve over the years as a result of numerous visits to cities across the United States and South America including Atlanta, Boston, Chicago, Los Angeles, Las Vegas, New York, Houston, Phoenix, Seattle, Rio de Janeiro, Sao Paolo and Mexico City. Although the timing of this exhibition just before the 2020 US presidential election may elicit some relevance, Kellett is clear that this series has since taken on a more universal and contemplative meaning – perhaps even existential – about the individual and the direction they choose to take. Inspired by the title of Gauguin´s painting “Where Do We Come From? What Are We? Where Are We Going?” in the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, this exhibition reflects our contemporary search for an answer.

Bruno V. Roels: Sensory Memory

June 25 - October 31

Bruno V. Roels’ new edition for Gallery FIFTY ONE is called ‘Sensory Memory’.

The title refers to the memory process that allows individuals to retain impressions of sensory information after the original stimulus has ceased. The title is also a nod to the way the prints were made: the photographic paper was moved during exposure in the dark room, so instead of a photograph of one palm tree, the image becomes a multiple of that same image.

All prints in the edition are different and some have been touched with ink. This edition fits perfectly in Roels’ oeuvre: it touches on the nature of the analogue photographic process, playing with repetition and variation, while using his favorite imagery: palm trees.

Acting Out: Cabinet Cards and the Making of Modern Photography

August 14 - November 1

Acting Out: Cabinet Cards and the Making of Modern Photography offers the first-ever in-depth examination of the photographic phenomenon of cabinet cards. Cabinet cards were America’s main format for photographic portraiture through the last three decades of the nineteenth century. Inexpensive and sold by the dozen, they transformed getting one’s portrait made from a formal event taken up once or twice in a lifetime into a commonplace practice shared with family and friends.

Alison Wright: Grit and Grace, Women at Work

March 14 - October 12

From India to Africa, tea fields to technology, women are the resilient hard-working backbones of their communities. These 30 images by photographer Alison Wright, a National Geographic Traveler of the Year, showcase the magnetic stories of remarkable women living in post-conflict or hard-to-reach areas in developing countries whose perseverance is often overlooked.

Wright’s vivid portraits illuminate a shared determination among women in Africa, Asia, Latin America, and the Middle East to create better futures through creativity, ingenuity, and drive. They celebrate the individuals and grassroots organizations committed to finding creative solutions to the challenges these women face, because empowering women benefits not only the individuals and their families, but their villages, their nations, and our world.

— Katherine Gass Stowe, Curator

This project is presented in partnership with The Vermont Women’s Fund.

July 16 - September 26

C. Grimaldis Gallery is pleased to present its 43rd annual summer exhibition, Summer ‘20, featuring contemporary painting, drawing, collage, sculpture, and photography.

As the world moves through waves of change, Summer ‘20 features work by a number of artists who push the idea that the person is the political. Documentary photographs by Rania Matar depict young Syrian refugees on the streets of Beirut and third-generation Palestinian girls living in the refugee camps of Bourj el-Barajneh, bringing light to the reality of youth existing invisibly within a country unable to embrace them. In an investigation of blurring borders, balancing cultures, and an individual’s handling of forced assimilation, Alfonso Fernandez creates paintings which combine abstract and figurative content to understand both the world around him and painting itself.

In a similar voyage for self-revelation, Beverly McIver’s narrative and autobiographical paintings explore her identity as an artist and as an African American. McIver challenges cultural assumptions about race and identity, from her earlier self-portraits in white face and black face confronting the black stereotype, to the unmasking of her own skin and body. Zoë Charlton has also dedicated her practice to the representation of black women, focusing on their sexualization to investigate race, power, and gender. Charlton’s collages feature figure drawing, magazine cutouts of nude bodies, and found stickers of both loaded cultural symbols and lush flora. Thinking about the similarities between the act of drawing and the reality of historical symbolism, Jackie Milad creates works on paper which utilize intense color, deconstructed language, and regenerative materials as reference for her experience in the world as an Egyptian-Honduran-American. And from the ultimate advocate for individualism and freedom of expression, Summer ‘20 includes print photography by John Waters, whose work examines the distance between fine art, entertainment, and the human experience. No matter the medium, Waters is a teller of stories. His stories give us raw depictions of queer identity, racial inequality, and class dysphoria.

Summer ‘20 also highlights work which gives space for formal appreciation and meditation. The “infinite void’ light sculptures by Chul Hyun Ahn, the sleek metal castings by John Ruppert, the dense fields of charcoal in Carol Miller Frost’s drawings, and the haunting horizon lines in Ben Marcin’s photographs give us a place to think about form and aesthetics in conversation with themes of identity and culture. Korean artist Jae Ko creates mesmerizing sculptures from rolled paper referencing cultural forms and patterns found in nature. With influence from the Bauhaus and her studies in Berlin, Greek photographer Dimitra Lazaridou projects an urban landscape in the absence of human presence. Nora Sturges presents us with paintings which, even at their small scale, immerse the viewer in a mystifying spatial context inspired by medieval Italian frescoes and abstracted landscapes. And in an opposing scale, Carol Brown Goldberg’s paintings confront the viewer with a massive world of Sci-fi flora, continuously entwined to build tension and chaos.

Summer ‘20 is on view at C. Grimaldis Gallery from July 16 to September 26, 2020. In lieu of a reception, a virtual version of the exhibition will launch on Thursday, July 23rd. C. Grimaldis Gallery is pledged to follow certain requirements for COVID-19 safety compliance. Please see our website for details. Press Inquiries: info@cgrimaldisgallery.com

As both a member and documentarian of the black community, Harris remains an iconic figure in Pittsburgh to this day. With this installation, the museum celebrates Harris’s legacy and looks forward to creating opportunities for creative collaboration with local partners. The installation opens January 25, 2020, and will be ongoing.

Keliy Anderson-Staley, Omar Imam, Rubén Martín de Lucas: What is Home?

September 11 - October 31

Catherine Edelman Gallery is excited to open the Fall season with What is Home? featuring work by Keliy Anderson-Staley, Omar Imam and Rubén Martín de Lucas. 

The Webster dictionary defines home as “one’s place of residence; the social unit formed by a family living together; a familiar or usual setting.” If you ask most people how they define home, it is either where they currently live, or where they grew up. But for many people today, home is not always tangible, due to displacement, border restrictions, or lack of safety. What is Home? brings together three photographers who each interpret the concept of home in very unique ways. The show opens September 11 and runs through October 31, 2020. To avoid crowds, the opening reception will be from noon – 7:00 pm on Friday, September 11.

For more than fifteen years, Keliy Anderson-Staley [b. 1977, Boston, MA] has been working on [Hyphen]-Americansa photographic tintype portrait series that encapsulates what America looks like today. Using a large-format camera, Anderson-Staley photographs anyone interested in having their portrait taken, regardless of age, sex, or ethnicity, as she continually adds to her collection of more than 4000 portraits. In 2017, after her Houston home and studio were flooded by Hurricane Harvey, she created Shelter in Place, a wooden house constructed of 560 portraits of local residents, as a testament to the strength and resilience of Houstonians. The idea of building a house of strangers redefines the concept of home.

In 2012, Syrian activist turned photographer Omar Imam [b. 1979 Damascus, Syria] was kidnapped and tortured by a militia and only let go when a friend intervened. Soon after, Imam left Damascus, first settling in Beirut, and now residing in Amsterdam with his wife and children. Syrialism is Imam’s response to the reality of torture experienced by himself and other refugees who settled in Lebanon and other European countries. Like his earlier work, Imam met and talked with numerous refugees who had been abducted, recreating painful memories to bring awareness about the psychological and physical torment that continues today. No longer able to live in their native homelands, each person pictured has had to adopt a new place to call home.

Rubén Martín de Lucas’ [b. 1977, Madrid, Spain] work challenges the concept of home by constructing arbitrary boundaries in unexpected places. In Minimal Republics, he creates photographs about the concept of borders and our need for the structure they provide. Martín de Lucas creates each image the same: define and allocate 100㎡ of space and inhabit it for 24 hours. From wheat fields to soccer fields to expanses of dried earth, unidentified pieces of land are transformed into a temporary residence for one.

All three artists create work that invites us into different physical spaces that challenge the definition of home. We hope this exhibition inspires visitors to think about the concept of home and the inherent complexities this word invokes.
