July 09, 2020: Kasmin Gallery, AND/ALSO: Photography (Mis)represented

In the last ten years, the boundaries between photography and sculpture, architecture, painting, drawing, media and computation have become increasingly porous. Central to the efficacy of photography today is its relationship to language. Like language, photography is a communicative medium that belongs to every discipline, allowing it to shift from commercial to critical and across media.

AND/ALSO: Photography (Mis)represented unites six photographers based in New York whose divergent practices all demonstrate the easy slippage between one medium and the next. Their methodologies contend with medium specific conceptions historically associated with photography, like authorship, deadpan documentation, and chemical composition, to imagine a system of representation that exists in quantum states, oscillating in and out of its own parameters. Taken collectively, the thirteen photographs exhibited make evident that a new approach to formalism is emerging within the contemporary construct, one that is multidisciplinary and upended by new technologies and advanced editing softwares.

December 21, 2018: Foam, Feast for the Eyes

The exhibition explores how food is represented and what its significance can be by means of three themes. For Still Life one of the most popular genres in painting is taken as the starting point. The photographs show how the artists have been inspired by the genre and how it has changed in the course of time. Around the Table looks at the ritual that takes place around food. In addition, this section also deals with cultural identity that is reflected in food. Finally, Playing with your Food shows what happens when humour, fun and irony are combined with food. In addition to the photos there will be a number of cookbooks on display. The books provide an additional visual history and supply context to the photos on the wall.

With works by: Nobuyoshi Araki, Guy Bourdin, Imogen Cunningham, Roe Ethridge, Marion Faller and Hollis Frampton, Rotimi Fani Kayode, Roger Fenton, Peter Fischli and David Weiss, Nan Goldin, Daniel Gordon, Rinko Kawauchi, Russell Lee, Laura Letinsky, Vik Muniz, Nickolas Muray, Martin Parr, Martha Rosler, Ed Ruscha, Cindy Sherman, Stephen Shore, Edward Steichen, Paul Beach, Wolfgang Tillmans, Lorenzo Vitturi, Tim Walker, Andy Warhol, Weegee, Edward Weston, Hank Willis Thomas and many others.

October 04, 2018: Screenspace

Simultaneous to León Ferrari’s exhibition at Galeria Nara Roesler – SP, the 28th edition of Roesler Hotel hosts Screenspace, which presents the recent production of 20 artists investigating contemporary visual culture through photographic language in a post-digital context.
The current edition of Roesler Hotel is curated by Vik Muniz – one of the artists represented by the gallery –, Lucas Blalock and Barney Kulok, whose works are also part of the show. Screenspaces manifests the way digital photography has permanently changed our perception of the world around us. 
The construction of notions of truth and reality and the illustrative links between the photographed and its representation ­– themes traditionally held dear to photography – remain present in these artists’ research. However, the most striking element of the exhibition is the interest in perceiving digital technologies not merely as tools, but as devices capable of reshaping our imagery and the way we relate to images.  
Participating artists: Anna K.E., Awol Erizku, Barney Kulok, Chris Wiley, Daniel Gordon, Deana Lawson, Dillon DeWaters, Erin Shirreff, Hannah Whitaker, Jibade-Khalil Huffman, John Houck, Jonathan Ehrenberg, Leah Beeferman, Leslie Hewitt, Lucas Blalock, Mariah Robertson, Paul Mpagi Sepuya, Sara Cwynar, Vik Muniz, Whitney Hubbs.

September 14, 2018: FOAM, Loading... Works from the Foam Collection

In 2014, Foam presented to the public work from its own collection for the first time, in the exhibition Reflected - Works from the Foam Collection. Since then, the collection has grown from over 400 to around 550 works of art. The collection – which is focused solely on contemporary photography – is still constantly developing. Loading… Works from the Foam Collection shows a selection of the most recent additions from the last five years. It features work from 30 international photographers in a diverse exhibition that reflects Foam’s exhibition programme. From the monumental work by the French artist Noémie Goudal to experiments with negatives by the Japanese Daisuke Yokota, and from the sophisticated work of Sjoerd Knibbeler to the still lifes of the young American Daniel Gordon and the strong, colourful images by Viviane Sassen.

Foam has been working for over ten years on its growing collection that shows the development of the medium throughout the 21st century. By spotting and presenting young talented photographers at an early stage of their careers and simultaneously adding their work to the collection, the museum ensures that its collection keeps pace with the potential and development of the young artists. In this way Foam tries to recognise and record the most recent developments of the medium as contemporaneously as possible.

With works by: Paul Bogaers, Sofia Borges, Antony Cairns, Juno Calypso, Uta Eisenreich, Daniel Gordon, Noémie Goudal, Adam Jeppesen, Heikki Kaski, Sjoerd Knibbeler, Awoiska van der Molen, Anouk Kruithof, Ola Lanko, Matthew Leifheit & Cynthia Talmadge, Romain Mader, Nerhol, Momo Okabe, Olya Oleinic, Peter Puklus, Jan Rosseel, Viviane Sassen, Scheltens & Abbenes, Jean-Vincent Simonet, Theo Simpson, Anne de Vries, Harley Weir and Daisuke Yokota.

February 27, 2018: Cut! Paper Play in Contemporary Photography

February 27–May 27, 2018

Interaction with paper plays an integral role in the practice of many photographers working today. Some create paper models with images gleaned from current events, popular magazines, or the internet for the express purpose of photographing them. Others cut, layer, fold, and/or assemble representational photographs to introduce tactile or narrative elements. The exhibition features works by Thomas Demand, Christiane Feser, Daniel Gordon, Soo Kim, Matt Lipps, and Christopher Russell.

November 07, 2017: BOCA Raton Museum of Art, Contemporary Photography Forum

The Boca Raton Museum of Art's newly created photography forum is established to present the work of emerging to mid-career artists working in the medium of photography. The first exhibition, slated to open in the fall of 2017 includes the work of Daniel Gordon (b. 1980 Brooklyn, NY), Paul Kneale (b. 1986 Brantford, Canada), and Florian Maier-Aichen (b. 1973 Stuttgart, Germany).

The medium of photography has shifted with the advent of new technologies; while it is the foundation for the work in this exhibition, these artists use the process merely as a starting point. The photographic works are largely influenced by an understanding of Postmodernism as a reaction to or rejection of Modernism by revisiting the early Modernist crossover between abstraction and representation. Collectively they exhibit the similarities between the new medium of photography and painting. The exhibition considers photography's influential role in contemporary art and also aims to build upon the significant collection of 1,600 historical photographs in the Boca Raton Museum of Art's collection.

April 21, 2017: Hall Art Foundation, Ready. FIRE! Aim.

Ready. Fire! Aim. is a joint exhibition that will take place at the Hall Art Foundation in Reading, Vermont (6 May – 26 November 2017) and at the BCA Center in Burlington, Vermont (21 April — 9 July 2017). Inspired by Andy and Christine Hall's art collecting philosophy, this group show explores the psychology of impulsive action and strategic thinking. Using the creative process as a point of departure, Ready. Fire! Aim. brings together artworks addressing issues of violence and decay, gestural abstraction and linear precision, as well as the sensible and the absurd. BCA Center's presentation will include work by six emerging to nationally recognized Vermont-based artists, while the Hall Art Foundation's presentation will feature a selection of paintings, sculptures, and photographs by internationally recognized contemporary artists.

Hall Art Foundation artists: Richard Artschwager, Joseph Beuys, Olafur Eliasson, Anoka Faruqee, Lara Favaretto, Eric Fischl, Daniel Gordon, Keith Haring, Glenn Ligon, Robert Longo, Tony Matelli, Bruce Nauman, Susan Rothenberg, Michael Scoggins.

BCA Center artists: Mildred Beltré, Nancy Dwyer, Peter Gallo, Jonathan Gitelson, Timothy Horn, Matthew Peterson

August 04, 2014: Pier 24, Secondhand

August 4, 2014 - May 31, 2015

For its sixth exhibition, Pier 24 Photography presents Secondhand, featuring artists who build repositories of found images, from which they appropriate, construct, edit, and sequence in order to create something entirely new. Through this process, their distinctly personal approaches become as wide-ranging as their source material.

The works presented in Secondhand resonate with our visual culture's obsession with communicating through selecting and editing existing material, allowing the distinction between curator and creator to become less defined. With more than one hundred and fifty years of printed photographs at their disposal, along with the millions of digital pictures uploaded daily, the artists included in Secondhand critically examine the role of images in our society. While mining these found images to reveal their own perspectives, the defining features of their artistic voices become process, craft, and display.


Maurizio Anzeri, John Baldessari, Viktoria Binschtok, Melissa Catanese, Daniel Gordon, Erik Kessels, Mike Mandel, Matt Lipps, Richard Prince, Rashid Rana, Joachim Schmid, Larry Sultan, Hank Willis Thomas, and selections from the Archive of Modern Conflict.
