KAHN & SELESNICK @ Kopeikin Gallery


KAHN & SELESNICK: Madame Lulu’s Book of Fate
June 2nd – July 7th, 2018

Opening Reception: Saturday, June 2nd from 6 – 8 pm

“Kahn & Selesnick’s latest project “Madame Lulu’s Book of Fate” continues the adventures of the Truppe Fledermaus, a cabaret troupe of anxious mummers and would-be mystics who catalogue their absurdist attempts to augur a future that seems increasingly in peril due to environmental pressures and global turmoil. In this body of work, the artists also examine the notion of the carnivalesque – traditionally the carnival was a time when the normal order of society was upended and reversed, so that at least for a day the fool might become king, the sinner a priest, men and women might cross dress, and sacred ceremonies and normal mores are burlesqued and spoofed. During such brief times of anarchy, societal pressures were relieved by revealing their somewhat absurd and arbitrary natures. Costumes and masks were traditionally worn so that all people might have the same social status during the duration of the festival. The Truppe ask you to consider: is it the carnival that is upside-down, or perhaps the real world that it purports to burlesque?”

Kirk Crippens & Gretchen LeMaistre: Live Burls
26 May until 15 September 2018

Opening – Saturday 26 May 2018, 16.00-19.00

“Redwood trees are living witnesses to our human history, sometimes existing for as long as three thousand years. Out of respect for their ancient heritage, and after an extended period of aggressive logging in the late 1800s, Theodore Roosevelt championed protection efforts that led to the formation of the National Park Service. Pioneering photographers such as Carleton Watkins and Eadweard Muybridge also fostered preservation through their striking images, many of which influenced the United States Congress. Crippens and LeMaistre honor the link between the history of photography and conservation by retracing the paths and methods of the early photographic masters.”

Peter Ydeen @ Brick and Mortar Gallery


“Easton Nights” photographs by Peter Ydeen
May 19th – June 2nd 2018

Starting in the fall of 2015, Peter Ydeen has been photographing at night in the Easton Pennsylvania area. Starting with images of George Tice’s elegant night shots in mind, it soon matured into much more than he had expected. The night has it’s own visual rules, it’s own color wheel, and it’s own ethereal presence. The series depicts these American towns in mystical array of endless stages.

GOTTFRIED JÄGER @ Sous Les Etoiles Gallery


GOTTFRIED JÄGER: GENERATIVE COLOR. PHOTOGRAPHS
MAY 17- JUNE 16, 2018

OPENING RECEPTION THURSDAY, MAY 17, 5:30 – 8 PM

“In 1968, Jäger developed the idea of Generative Photography, which in his words consists of “finding a new world inside the camera and trying to bring it out with a methodical, analytical system.” Jäger’s generative color work derives from the color spectrum and the refraction of white light. Whether analogical or digital, the work is not a representation of color but a reflection of it. “Generative Color. Photographs” is a cross section exhibition of Gottfried Jäger’s exploration of the color spectrum made between 1965 and 2000. In Jäger’s words, “The objective of my work is to induce a generative effect: to constantly provoke an endless generation of new forms and elements in a continuous process of renewal and rebirth. What is intended is not a standstill, but the image of an exchange, its infiltration, and its conversion. An aesthetic of transition.””

R. J. KERN @ KLOMPCHING GALLERY

Mr. Hofsos, Skagafjardarsysla, Iceland (2014)

R. J. KERN
May 10 – ?

Opening reception Thursday, May 10th, 6:00–8:00pm

“Kern’s evocation of nature as a device to understand his own sense of self draws upon historical precedence: the use of animals as metaphor and the pastoral tradition. Yet the artist’s broad concept—his exploration of identity—is firmly grounded in a contemporary context. This tightly knit series of images, which together characterize the author, is common to our age of social media. Kern’s aesthetic, however, emphasizes clarity and projects a warm stillness that is a balm to an overstimulate society. This contrast, too—the ties to digital media and the rejection of its characteristics—deepens his pastoral project.”.—Lisa Volpe, Associate Curator, Photography, The Museum of Fine Arts–Houston, Texas.

The Lost Moment – Civil Rights, Street Protest
and Resistance in Northern Ireland, 1968-69
12 May until June 17, 2018

“The Lost Moment looks anew at the Civil Rights movement in Northern Ireland fifty years on from the marches and peaceful protests that immediately preceded the Troubles. Curated by Sean O’Hagan, writer on photography, art and culture for The Guardian and The Observer, the show places the Northern Irish civil rights struggle in the context of the many international street protests that made 1968 such a tumultuous year.”
