Bruce Gilden: LOST AND FIND

February 7 - April 5

In collaboration with Magnum Photos, 10 Corso Como New York presents LOST AND FOUND, an exhibition of Bruce Gilden’s early New York street photographs from the mid 70s through 80s as well as his more recent fashion images. The exhibition will be on view in the 10 Corso Como Gallery in Lower Manhattan’s Seaport District, February 7– April 5, 2020. A reception for the artist will be held on Thursday, February 6, 6-8 pm.

LOST AND FOUND is the result of a happy accident: the rediscovery of some 2000-odd rolls of 35mm film from Bruce Gilden’s early days photographing New York City, spanning from 1978 to 1984. The film had been relegated to filing cabinets at the time, yet in the summer of 2017, after a house move, Gilden found it again. These pictures are almost all made without the use of flash, which would become his trademark. As Gilden himself explains, “It’s Bruce Gilden before he really became the known Bruce Gilden.”

agnès b. Presents …PHOTOGRAPHERS…ARTISTS AND THE SNAP CARDIGAN EXHIBITION

February 8 - March 1

To celebrate the 40th anniversary of her signature snap cardigan, agnès b. is delighted to announce the forthcoming exhibition“… PHOTOGRAPHERS … ARTISTS AND THE SNAP CARDIGAN” that will open in New York on February 8, 2020, at 195 Chrystie Street in the Lower East Side.

 

The exhibition will echo the original snap cardigan exhibition in 1986 held at agnès b.’s Galerie du Jour in Paris as part of Mois de la Photo, where 140 photographers contributed to the exhibition. Each artist was asked to photograph the iconic snap cardigan in his or her own way. Acclaimed by the public and critics alike, the exhibition was then held at the Centre Pompidou in 1996.

 

As a designer, philanthropist, and art collector, agnès b. noted at the time, “A while ago, I designed a cardigan for myself. I wanted one that opened in front with lots of snaps that evoke a Renaissance garment, a child’s garment for grown-ups, or the other way round, and the snap cardigan was born. Since then, it has been worn by many people. I had the idea for the exhibition when I saw people making the garment their own, adapting it to their personal style. It occurred to me that photographers are never given the same subject, and that they would each have their own vision of the garment. Their response was enthusiastic, and the result is beautiful. I am extremely grateful.

 

For the 2020 exhibition, which was shown in Paris at the end of 2019, agnès b. gave given carte blanche to more than 65 photographers and artists from 14 different nationalities. Young emerging artists and established artists from urban and contemporary scenes offer their interpretation of this timeless garment, working with a singular specification of a 40 × 60 centimeter photograph whose main subject is the snap cardigan. The exhibition will subsequently travel to Tokyo and Hong Kong.

 

In September 2019, on the occasion of the 40th anniversary of the snap cardigan, the book agnès b.: The Snap Cardigan, was published by Assouline and is now available at agnès b. and Assouline stores worldwide.

 

Artists in the exhibition include Roger Ballen, Tim Barber, Richard Billingham, Samuel Bollendorff, Brodbeck & De Barbuat, Jared Buckhiester, Jonathan Caouette, Vasco Cesaretti, Kenta Cobayashi, Mark Cohen, Jacob Consenstein, Martha Cooper, Brigitte Cornand, Craig Costello, Sylvain Couzinet, Elisabeth Daynès, Cheryl Dunn, Omar Victor, Diop Nicolas Floc’h, Lucas Foglia, The Fourth Dimension, Godlis, Samuel Gratacap, Harry Gruyaert, Balarama Heller, Todd Hido, Isabella Hin, Go Itami, Jim Jarmusch, Jim Joe, Pablo Jomaron, Rinko Kawauchi, Johnny Knapp, Sue Kwon, Claude Lévêque, Sébastien Lifshitz, David Lynch, Ari Marcopoulos, Maripol, Dmitry Markov, Ryan McGinness, Annette Messager, Joel Meyerowitz, Chad Moore, Malik Nejmi, Gaspar Noé, Gabriel Orlowski, Luna Picoli-Truffaut, Jean Pigozzi, Lola Reboud, Pierre Reimer, Hugues Reip, Paul Rousteau, Lina Scheynius, Selma Selman, Chris Shaw, Skki, Carly Steinbrunn, Prue Stent & Honey Long, William Strobeck, Peter Sutherland, Hiraku Suzuki, Synchrodogs, Juergen Teller, Ed Templeton, Jean-Luc Verna, Camille Vivier, Massimo Vitali, Hayato Wakabayashi, Luo Yang, and agnès b.

 

The exhibition is supported by Dupon Phidap.

Kim Gordon: The Bonfire

January 10 - February 22

303 Gallery is pleased to announce our second solo exhibition of new work by Kim Gordon.

 

In a series of new works on canvas, Gordon presents a world of safety and familial intimacy surreptitiously undermined by insidious, unseen forces. Photographs of a group of revelers huddling around a beach bonfire are softened and overlaid with digital framing marks around the human figures, suggesting surveillance technology or facial recognition software. These images are emblematic of a new reality where no moment goes uncaptured, and where even the most ordinary events are packaged and sold, like an Airbnb listing promising a branded experience of intimacy. Gordon amplifies this phenomenon, referencing iconography from the world of music as it dovetails with youthful rebellion. The various crops and crosshairs allude to the logos of both Black Flag and Public Enemy, two groups emblematic of questioning authority and rising above structural oppression. Gordon’s emphases seem to echo their animosity, drawing the very same lines as our tyrannical tech overlords, yet with the express purpose of reasserting control of our own dominions.

 

Also on view will be “Los Angeles June 6, 2019,” a film in which Gordon walks around Los Angeles with a guitar, utilizing handrails, plants, traffic implements, public sculpture and light poles as various accomplices in a performance that quite literally uses the city as a sounding board. Gordon assumes the role of interloper, unfazed by her happenstance audience while navigating the corporate territory of public spaces. Ironically, these scenes were surely also recorded by the various mechanisms of surveillance on the streets of LA, adding another layer of undisclosed viewership into the work’s dissemination. We may know we are being watched, but it is up to us to transcend.

 

Kim Gordon studied at the Otis Art Institute in Los Angeles in the late 1970s and has continued to work as an artist since. Her first solo exhibition presented under the name ‘Design Office’ took place at New York’s White Columns in 1981. Recent solo exhibitions include “She Bites Her Tender Mind,” Irish Museum of Modern Art Dublin (2019); “Lo-Fi Glamour,” The Andy Warhol Museum, Pittsburgh (2019); Reena Spaulings Fine Art, Los Angeles (2018); Manifesta 11, Zurich (2016); and “Noise Name Paintings And Sculptures Of Rock Bands That Are Broken Up,” Deste Foundation, Athens (2015). A two-person show with Rodney Graham was presented at Dijon’s L’Académie Conti in 2017. For the past thirty years Gordon has worked consistently across disciplines and across distinct cultural fields: art, design, writing, fashion (X-Girl), music (Sonic Youth, Free Kitten, Body/Head), and film/video (both as actress and director). Her first solo album “No Home Record” was released earlier this year on Matador Records.

Elliott Erwitt and Henri Cartier-Bresson: 2020 Vision 

Opening January 11, 2020 

On View Through May 15, 2020

 

A Gallery for Fine Photography is pleased to open 2020 Vision, a collection of rare  silver gelatin photographs. The exhibit will include ten photographs by Elliott Erwitt and ten photographs by Henri Cartier-Bresson.  2020 Vision will showcase these magnificent photographers side by side for the first time ever. 

2020 Vision will be on view through May 15, 2020. 

Henri Cartier-Bresson

Henri Cartier-Bresson was born on August 22, 1908 in Chanteloup, France. A pioneer in photojournalism, Cartier-Bresson wandered around the world with his camera, becoming completely immersed in his  environment. Considered one of the major artists of the 20th century, he covered many of the world’s biggest events including the Spanish Civil War to the French uprisings in 1968.

For the rest of his life, Cartier-Bresson’s approach to photography would remain much the same. The naturalist in Cartier-Bresson believed that all edits should be done when the image was made. Cartier-Bresson coined the term “the decisive moment” and he never cropped his images. 

Just a few weeks shy of his 96th birthday, Henri Cartier-Bresson passed away at his home in Provence on August 3, 2004.

 

Elliott Erwitt

Erwitt was born on July 26, 1928 in Paris, France, to Jewish- Russian immigrant parents, who moved to Italy. In 1939. When he was ten, his family immigrated to the United States. He studied photography and filmmaking at Los Angeles City College and the New School of Social Research, finishing his education in 1950. In 1951 he was drafted into the army, and discharged in 1953.

Elliott Erwitt served as a photographer’s assistant in the 1950s in the US while stationed in France and Germany. He was influenced by meeting the famous photographers Steichen, Capa and Stryker. Stryker, the former Director of the Farm Security Administration’s photography department, hired Erwitt to work on a photography project for the Standard Oil Company. He then began a freelance photography career and produced work for Collier’s, Look, Life and Holiday. Erwitt was invited to become a member of Magnum Photos by the founder Robert Capa.

Elliott Erwitt has received major attention in the Fine Art Photography arena and is in all of the major museum collections around the world.

Eliott Erwitt still lives in New York City where he continues his fine art photography career at ninety-two years old.

Come As You Are: American Youth

November 20, 2019 - March 8, 2020

 

​​What does youth mean to you? Whether your mind flashes to sweltering summer days spent playing with neighbors or to the seemingly endless hours spent in the classroom, our childhoods have the ability to connect us all. Featuring photographs of a diverse range of experiences faced by young Americans across generations and across the country, Come As You Are: American Youth seeks to celebrate both our similarities and differences.

Grappling with the themes of play, identity, education, rebellion, and violence, this exhibition shows the joys of childhood, challenges of adolescence, and obstacles encountered by those forced to grow up too soon. Despite the fact that many of the images in this exhibition were taken by adults, the subjects depicted express their agency. Ultimately, they show that young people are not only a product of the times in which they live but also possess the power to redefine their roles in society.

Allow this exhibition to act as a space to explore what childhood means to you and those around you. Come with all your baggage, your memories, your experiences—come as you are.

Come As You Are: American Youth was curated by Phillips Academy students in Art 400, Visual Culture: Discovering the Addison Collection, and is presented in the Museum Learning Center. Generous support for this exhibition has been provided by the Margot Chandler Cook ’00 Life in Art Fund.

Gordon Parks: Gordon Parks: The New Tide, Early Work 1940-1950

February 1 - April 26

​​During the 1940s, American photographer Gordon Parks (1912–2006) grew from a self-taught photographer making portraits and documenting everyday life in Saint Paul and Chicago to a visionary professional shooting for EbonyGlamourSmart Woman, and Life. For the first time, the formative first decade of Parks’s 60-year career is the focus of an exhibition, which brings together 150 photographs and ephemera—including magazines, books, letters, and family pictures. The exhibition will illustrate Parks’s early experiences at the Farm Security Administration, Office of War Information, and Standard Oil (New Jersey), as well as his close relationships with Roy Stryker, Langston Hughes, Richard Wright, and Ralph Ellison and reveal how th​ese helped shape his groundbreaking style. A catalog with extensive new research and previously unpublished images accompanies the exhibition.

The exhibition is curated by Philip Brookman, Consulting Curator, Department of Photographs, National Gallery of Art, Washington, D.C., in collaboration with The Gordon Parks Foundation.​ Bank of America is proud to be the national sponsor of ​Gordon Parks: The New Tide, Early Work 1940–1950. Generous support for the Addison Gallery’s presentation of this exhibition has been provided by the Francesca S.

The Distance of the Moon

November 9, 2019 - March 15, 2020

In 1969, the astronauts aboard Apollo 11 made history by becoming the first people to set foot on the moon. Unbeknownst to them, this year also marked the arrival of the first works of art to the lunar surface—The Moon Museum. Covertly orchestrated by members of the group Experiments in Art and Technology, a miniscule ceramic tile bearing reproductions of artworks by six artists was snuck onto the lander. A rare original tile, featuring work by Robert Rauschenberg, Andy Warhol, Claes Oldenburg, Forrest Myers, David Novros and John Chamberlain, will be on view in The Distance of the Moon.

On the occasion of the 50th anniversary of the moon landing, this exhibition examines the moon through the lens of photography and video. From Georges Méliès early film Le voyage dans la lune (1902) to Robert Longo’s striking study Untitled (Moon in Shadow) (2006), the moon has served as an important touchstone and inspired countless works of art and imagined lunar voyages. Utilizing images from exploratory missions to the moon, Nancy Graves created an immersive filmic meditation on surface textures and sonic space. Over forty years in the making, James Turrell has slowly transformed a dormant volcano into an aperture for observing the moon and other heavenly bodies.

Moody nocturnes and celebratory renderings are shown alongside early stereographs of the full moon, made possible by the most advanced photographic technology of the day. Combining historic prints with modern images of the lunar surface taken by NASA on a series of exploratory missions, The Distance of the Moon considers the relationship between artistic impulse and scientific discovery, and our collective fascination with this celestial body.

Artists: Nancy Graves, Craig Kalpakjian, Robert Longo, Georges Méliès, and James Turrell, with additional materials from the Archive of Amateur Astronomers Society of Voorhees and NASA

Weather Report will reveal the sky as a site where the aesthetic, the romantic, the political, the social, and the scientific co-exist and inform one another. The depiction of weather phenomena in the visual arts is traditionally linked with either landscape painting or photography, but in the last two decades artists have increasingly turned to other media to explore weather and, by extension, the larger subject of the Earth’s atmosphere. Featuring the work of Bigert & Bergström, Barbara Bloom, Sara Bouchard, Nick Cave, Violet Dennison, Bryan Nash Gill, Andy Goldsworthy, Nancy Graves, Ellen Harvey, Ayumi Ishii, Jitish Kallat, Kim Keever, Byron Kim, Damian Loeb, Iñigo Manglano-Ovalle, Colin McMullan, Hitoshi Nomura, Pat Pickett, Sean Salstrom, and Jennifer Steinkamp, and an installation by researchers Amanda Bunce, Joel Salisbury, and Michael Vertefeuille.

Eliot Porter: Eliot Porter’s Birds

January 4 - May 10

Eliot Porter (1901–1990) set the model for today’s nature photography. While he is internationally celebrated for his colorful renderings of the natural world, Eliot Porter’s Birds highlights his equal, career-long focus on photographing birds. More than thirty photographs and archival objects are presented alongside excerpts from the artist’s extensive writings about his activities, giving visitors an opportunity to feel a direct connection with the artist.

Porter photographed birds almost every spring for more than fifty years, deeply appreciating their colors, variety, and ability to fly. He sought from the start to set a new artistic model for bird photography that aligned with the great lithographs of the nineteenth-century artist-naturalist John James Audubon. Visitors will be able to experience how Porter pushed the limits of photographic technologies through a display of his personally designed camera outfit. Also on view are his research notes for locating and recording his subjects, and a display showing how he went about making his exquisite prints.

Looking In: Photography from the Outside examines the way artists have photographed groups they are not part of. It takes an in-depth look at series by six important twentieth-century artists who navigated their role as “outsider” differently, raising complicated questions about perception, representation, and power.

This exhibition is drawn from the Carter’s collection, featuring works by Richard Avedon, who took portraits of Hutterites although their official stance is against photography, Morris Engel, who photographed members of a Texas dairy family going about their daily lives, Laura Gilpin, who spent decades taking photographs of close Diné (Navajo) friends, Dorothea Lange, who went with Ansel Adams to photograph rural Mormon towns in Utah, Danny Lyon, who joined the Chicago Outlaw bikeriders and published a book of images and interviews, and Paul Strand, who traveled south and captured what he thought was the essential Mexican national identity.
