Exhibitions, "The Open Road: Photography and the American Roadtrip" at the Crystal Bridges Museum

Added on by ROSEGALLERY.

The Open Road published by Aperture (Sept. 2014) is a compilation publication of America's most well-traveled photographers.  Featuring 19 photographers and over 100 images, the book celebrates the exhilaration of traveling the American landscape from the 1950's through present day.  Accompanying the book is a large-scale exhibition at Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art in Bentonville, Arkansas.  As a destination point along a sight-seer's roadtrip, the museum has in mind their central geographical location in the States and has even curated a playlist on Spotify of "highway-tested tunes" for their visitor's travels.

Photographers include: Robert Frank, Ed Ruscha, Garry Winogrand, Inge Morath, William Eggleston, Lee Friedlander, Joel Meyerowitz, Jacob Holdt, Stephen Shore, Bernard Plossu, Victor Burgin, Joel Sternfeld, Alec Soth, Todd Hido, Shinya Fujiwara, Ryan McGinley, Justine Kurland, and Taiyo Onorato and Nico Krebs.

“Joyrides, voyages of discovery, surveys, wanderings, migrations, polemics, travel diaries, and assessments of the nation. Is America even imaginable without the road trip?”
David Campany

The exhibition will be viewable from 27 February - 30 May 2016.

PASSING THROUGH on exhibit

Added on by ROSEGALLERY.

Featuring works by twenty artists from our gallery roster, Passing Through pays homage to the transience of all things and the power of the photographer to immortalize experience with the click of the camera shutter. The exhibition celebrates the essential magic of the medium, which allows us to give pause in a world of rushing and inescapable impermanence.  Together, the disparate photographs and imagery of Passing Through form a journey with its own unique pace, one that mirrors the ebbs and flows of life’s seasons from the youthful rush of possibility through the expectations and trials of middle age and beyond. It is a trip by car across the American landscape, a bicycle excursion through the city, a waltz across a romantically lit room, the shifting sky-scape with ever-changing clouds, an unexpected and devastating automobile crash. The physical world traversed and inhabited by the artists in the exhibition echoes the topography of our internal worlds in that both are subject to the great equalizer of time over which we can never exert power.  To hold onto what invariably slips past, and give undeniable presence to a subject even as it begins to fade, is the photographer’s attempt to counter the fundamental dissolution of existence, out of which the most profound beauty, loss and aspirations materialize.
