Nikolay Bakharev @ Julie Saul Gallery

a066725bb32d28d4c47c0179d35dea67.985.680.1.0.0.75Nikolay Bakharev The People of Town N
June 4 – July 17

Bakharev began photographing during the Soviet era when it was illegal to photograph or exhibit nudes. His ambiguous images of Russian bathers on public beaches, and individuals and groups photographed in private homes, play on the tension between acceptable and unacceptable imagery. As Karen Rosenberg said in her 2013 New York Times review – they are “unexpectedly linked by the game spirit and conspiratorial demeanor of his subjects.”

Temporary States
On view now through May 24, 2015

Temporary States, featuring Pittsburgh artists Lori Hepner and Christine Lorenz, explores a common thread of formation and manipulation through two bodies of work: one exploring climate change, and the other, a common household substance. Together, these bold dances of light and stark black-and-white cosmological formations complement one another by their formations, manipulations, and contrast of analog and digital. They represent all we love about the era we are in, while evoking past eras we still admire. This exhibition is presented by The Magenta Foundation.
