‘Serene, comforting, intimate, eloquent, secure, fragile, uncertain, precarious, even ambivalent. All these words can well describe any number of images in this exhibition. Home is such a wonderful and universal concept that it was always going to elicit a profound engagement from photographers. It is a deeply felt notion, but one which manifests so completely differently in each of our hearts and minds. It is a notion that is eventually discovered, identified and expressed in so many different ways and through so many unique prisms of belief, experience and perspective.’ – Kevin Miller (Juror)

unnamedSerge Najjar: A Closer Look at the Ordinary
January 6 – February 25, 2016

OPENING RECEPTION WITH THE ARTIST: Friday, January 6, 5:00 – 8:00 p.m.

From New York to Beijing, countless strangers dash across city streets in a constant state of frenzy, rushing to their destinations. But every now and then we see someone pause, marveling at his or her surroundings. It is this stillness that Serge Najjar seeks, with one simple guideline, “It is not about what you see but how you see it.”

STEPHAN LUPINO: 80’s IN NY
1.12.2016 – 7.1.2017

“…The debauchery, wildness, and eccentricity; all are found in Lupino’s photographs from the era. In his usual style, photographing clubs was actually a performance, and so were the clubs. The creative potential of partying has been a focus of art and music since the early 60s, with Andy Warhol, the most famous and controversial protagonist of the scene, at it’s head. Warhol was also one of the many famous artists and eccentrics who frequented the short-lived nightclub Area (1983 – 1987). Among the partygoers was also Stephan Lupino, who has set up an improvised photography studio in the bathroom of the club. Area promised a new world, in which art was the space in which you drank and danced.”

Priya Kambli and Mel Keiser: A hole’s made of itself.
December 2 – 31, 2016

Opening Reception: December 2, 6 – 9 PM

This intimate exhibition explores the relationship of self to society, family, and ultimately self. Priya Kambli, after finding a family snapshot that was marred by her mother, alters photographs from her family archive as a way to conjure a personal mythology of her ancestry, and reconcile her relationship with her heritage. Mel Keiser creates visual multiplicities of herself to examine whether identity is singular or a system of discrete beings. Working with photography in visually distinct ways, both artists examine the role they play in the larger arena of the social construct of self, desiring to reconcile identity and relationships within a kind of personal void.

Nona Faustine @ Baxter St at CCNY

unnamedNona Faustine: My Country
December 8, 2016 – January 14, 2017

Opening Reception: Thursday, December 8 , 2016 | 6 – 8pm

Since 2013 Faustine has gained national and international recognition for her photographic work that plays with historical narratives haunted by the black female body. She has used self-portraiture to re-mark locations in NYC where the history of slavery is literally buried physically and psychologically. The photographic documentation of her self-made monuments which avoid conventional readings of a cohesive national history work to expose the ongoing tragic legacy of slavery. These images, however, are not only about accountability, but also about our collective relationship to history. Increasingly she appears as a new heroic figure who is her sex, who is her race – and yet universal, who is more than the sum of her subjective parts.

Jennifer Shaw: Flood State
on view through February 15, 2017

Opening Reception with the Artist: Saturday, December 3, 6-8pm

Flood State, a new series of photogravures by Jennifer Shaw, addresses the precarious act of making a home on vulnerable land. A response to the recent catastrophic flooding in Baton Rouge and central Louisiana, as well as the global trend of rising ocean waters due to climate change, Shaw deftly and delicately imagines a dreamlike floating world that may soon become reality for not only Louisiana, but much of the globe.
