Marcelo Brodsky: 1968: The Fire of Ideas
10th February 2017 – 8th April 2018

“Marcelo Brodsky is an Argentine artist and human rights activist, working with images and documents of specific events to investigate broader social, political and historical issues. In 1968 – the Fire of Ideas Brodsky features archival images of student and worker demonstrations around the world, carefully annotated by hand in order to deconstruct what lay behind worldwide social turbulence in the late 1960s. Images of anti-Vietnam war demonstrations in London and Tokyo sit alongside protests in Bogota, Rio de Janeiro, Mexico, Prague and San Paolo against military regimes and oppressive government structures.”

The Other Half – The Activist Photography of Jacob Riis
16 February – 15 April 2018

“In 1870, the Danish immigrant Jacob Riis (1849-1914) arrived in New York City, aged twenty-one and penniless. This background stimulated his concern for the poor living conditions of inhabitants of the city’s Lower East Side. In time, his concern propelled him to become an important journalist and social reformer. In addition, he is now viewed as one of the founders of documentary photography.

Riis used the camera as a means to help improve the living conditions of the city’s destitute. He was eager to apply the latest developments in the still young medium of photography. After reading about the German invention of flash powder, he realised that this would enable him to capture what he saw at night on his way home: decrepit tenement buildings, cheap gambling halls and opium dens in China Town. Thanks to the new technology, he was also able to photograph scenes in the narrow dark alleys and dimly lit rooms. ”

LANDSCAPES – THE MASTERS OF A FINNISH SCHOOL
APRIL 7th to JUNE 10th 2018

“The exhibition in the Logis abbatial brings together a collection on the theme of landscape, but which is marked by different subtexts: images of northern lands with an underlying poetic vision mixed with an approach sometimes touching on abstraction, as black & white is to colour.

All four photographers are of the same generation, born
in the early 1950s (except the slightly younger Jyrki Parantainen). They have, for the most part, taught at Aalto University in Helsinki. Their teaching has helped shape the young talent that the Finnish Taik Persons Gallery brought together and styled “the Helsinki School”.”

Khalik Allah @ Gitterman Gallery


Khalik Allah
March 9 – May 12, 2018

“It is easy to walk through a city not making eye contact, but for Khalik Allah this contact is essential. He sees each individual he photographs. And his photographs in turn allow us to see them, to acknowledge who we might ignore, to look through Allah’s eye and into theirs, and to recognize them as individuals. This is the power of Allah’s work: to give us a deeper sense of people as people, to share and enlighten, even when the message may not be clean or easy.”

WITHO WORMS: CETTE MONTAGNE C’EST MOI & A FOREST RECONSTRUCTED
February 23 – April 28, 2018

“Worms’ interest lies in the relationship between nature and culture. He employs the camera to examine typologies across Europe where the two intersect in the landscape. Contact prints of recurring forms are made using pigments selected to embody the objects themselves. The results are detailed, subtle, and sublime.”

CHARLES PÉTILLON, JAVIER RIERA, AND BARRY UNDERWOOD : A SLIGHT SHIFT
MARCH 1, 2018 – APRIL 14, 2018

OPENING RECEPTION THURSDAY MARCH 1, 6-8PM

““A Slight Shift” explores how installations challenge the landscape as a medium as well as a subject matter. With a strong poetic and narrative evocation, these installations propose another image of the real. The physical presence of such elements reveals another aspect of the site: strange beauty offering a new spatial experience to the audience. Providing a new interpretation of the landscape, the photographs shown in this exhibition are situated at the intersection of land art, staged photography, and minimalist sculpture; emphasizing the relationship between human and nature along with human and non-human through ecological or political concerns.”

New Landscape @ Boris Yeltsin Center

Alexander Gronsky, Less than One

New Landscape
March 16th through May 27th, 2018

Artists: Alexander Gronsky, Anastasia Tsayder, Liza Faktor, Max Sher, Petr Antonov, Sergey Novikov, Valeri Nistratov.
Curated by Anastasia Tsayder and Petr Antonov.

“Group exhibition New Landscape features seven photography projects exploring the landscape as a means to reflect on the new post-Soviet culture. Observing how the man-made landscape is reshaped by the transition from the industrial to the post-industrial, the works show how these changes are further augmented by the transition from the planned economy to the free market, from the Soviet to the post-Soviet. Brought together the works create a portrayal of what may be a transformation of a landscape and a culture unprecedented in scale and pace.”
