Exhibition: Andy Warhol - Polaroid Pictures at Bastian Gallery

With the exhibition Andy Warhol Polaroid Pictures BASTIAN London opens a gallery on Davies Street in Mayfair. The first exhibition includes more than sixty portraits and self-portraits of Warhol, some of them first exhibited. His Polaroids depict artists, actors, politicians and friends of his eccentric factory entourage, through which Warhol appears as both a subject and a chronicler of his time. The opening exhibition thus provides an intimate glimpse into New York in the 1970s and '80s, at the time of the emergence of a new visual culture.

Tuesday February 19th In Conversation: Lois Conner & Victoria Sambunaris | 7:00PM

About Victoria Sambunaris:
Each year, Victoria Sambunaris structures her life around a photographic journey in which she investigates specific aspects of the contemporary American landscape. Equipped with a 5x7 inch field camera, she crosses the country by car for several months per year. Her large-scale photographs document the continuing transformation of the American landscape with specific attention given to expanding political and industrial interventions, where nature and culture meet in unexpected, nuanced relationships.

Her ongoing series, “Taxonomy of a Landscape” pays special attention to the contradictory currents that she has thoroughly researched and which is clearly evidenced in her images of the landscape. There we often find the intrusion of industrial manufacturing onto the land as both a symbol and as the continuing use and need of natural materials being transformed and transferred nation-wide as central to future technological and consumer transactions. The central contradictions are imbedded in most of the images – the needs and habits of a society that, at the same time, is destroying the landscape and the resources it needs to subsist.

Sambunaris received her MFA from Yale University in 1999.  She is the recipient of the Aaron Siskind Foundation Individual Photographer’s Fellowship and the Anonymous Was a Woman Award.  “Taxonomy of a Landscape” debuted at the Albright Knox Art Gallery in Buffalo, NY in 2011 and traveled throughout the country. Her first monograph “Taxonomy of a Landscape” was published by Radius Books in 2014. Sambunaris is represented by Yancey Richardson Gallery.

Friday April 5: Mona Kuhn | 7:00PM

About Mona Kuhn:
Mona Kuhn is best known for her large-scale photographs of the human form.  Her approach is unusual in that she develops close relationships with her subjects, resulting in images of remarkable intimacy, and creating the effect of people naked but comfortable in their own skin.  In addition, Kuhn's playful combination of visual strategies, such as translucency explores our connectedness with the environment.  A sublime sense of comfort and intelligence permeates her works, showing the human body in its most natural state while simultaneously re-envisioning the nude as a contemporary canon of art. Kuhn was born in São Paulo, Brazil, in 1969, of German descent.  In 1989, Kuhn moved to the US and earned her BA from The Ohio State University, before furthering her studies at the San Francisco Art Institute.  She is currently and independent scholar at The Getty Research Institute in Los Angeles.  Mona Kuhn’s first monograph, Photographs, was debuted by Steidl in 2004; followed by Evidence (2007), Native (2010), Bordeaux Series (2011), and Private (2014).  Mona's upcoming books titled Bushes and Succulents (Stanley Barker Books) and She Disappeared into Complete Silence (Steidl) are being released this Fall 2018, during Paris Photo at the Grand Palais, Paris.  Occasionally, Mona teaches at UCLA and the Art Center College of Design in Pasadena.Mona Kuhn’s work is in private and public collections worldwide, including The J. Paul Getty Museum, Los Angeles County Museum of Art, The Hammer Museum, Perez Art Museum Miami, Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, and the Kiyosato Museum in Japan.  Kuhn's work has been exhibited at The Louvre Museum and Le Bal in Paris; The Whitechapel Gallery and Royal Academy of Arts in London; Musée de l’Elysée in Switzerland; Leopold Museum in Vienna, and Australian Centre for Photography, Sydney. Mona Kuhn lives and works in Los Angeles.


Mary Ellen Bartley is known for her photographs exploring the tactile and formal qualities of the printed book and its potential for abstraction.  She has exhibited in numerous institutions including The Queens Museum, The Walker Art Center, Houston Center for Photography, Parrish Art Museum, and The Watermill Center.  One aspect of her practice is working in unique libraries and archives where she responds to collections and their habitats developing projects over time spent with them. Bartley was a Watermill Center 2015 Artist in Residence and worked with the library there creating the installation and book Reading Robert Wilson. In 2017 she created an installation Library Copies at The Queens Museum working with Andrew Beccone’s Reanimation Library. Her series Reading Grey Gardens made at the legendary East Hampton estate was exhibited at The Drawing Room Gallery last fall. Bartley’s current project is from her work with the library and music archives at The Pollock Krasner House.

The annual staff show displays photos from the current members of the Blue Moon Camera and Machine staff, curated by the photographers themselves as pieces representative of their current work. It provides a glimpse into the lives of those who spend their days immersed in the photographic work of others, and how they choose to pursue their own photographic interests.

The Dartmoor Summer School of Photography offers the opportunity for a group of visual artists to join together to explore their relationship with photography with the guidance of a selection of renowned artists and photographers in the midst of one of Britain’s most beautiful national parks.

Days comprise of workshops, assignments, time to experiment, explore and make work. Evenings offer a variety of activities including talks, music recitals, games, time to make more work, night walks, bird watching, swimming, eating together, sitting round the fire and socializing.

The week ends with a group exhibition of the work made during the residential.

The ethos of the Dartmoor Summer School of Photography is to think outside the box, open up, expect the unexpected, step outside your comfort zone. Experiment. Play. Enjoy. 

Workshops:
The week will be split between led workshops with a specific focus and time to develop your own work in response and/or pursue other directions. Students will be able to select 3 out of a possible 5 day long artist led workshops to participate in during the week.

Location:
The Summer School will be held at The Dartmoor Training Centre not far from Two Bridges, on the banks of the West Dart River in the heart of the Dartmoor National Park, Devon. The Centre lies in a tranquil, secluded valley with easy access to the open moor.

Accommodation:
At The Centre there is a large bright common room, a fully equipped kitchen and modern shower and toilet facilities. There is central heating throughout and a wood burning stove for extra warmth and atmosphere. The Centre grounds are approx. 2 acres with an outdoor fire area and outstanding views of the river valley and Dartmoor skyline. 

Accommodation is divided into 2 main dormitories for participants, one male and one female. Sleeping arrangements are basic but the surroundings here are so beautiful that you won’t be spending long in your rooms! If you are wishing for a bit more privacy and comfort, we can provide a limited number of ready pitched bell tents with a double air mattress for an additional £300 for the week. As there is only a limited number of these available they will be allocated by lottery at the end of the application process. Applicants will be informed of whether they are successful or not before having to confirm their place. Alternatively participants are more than welcome to pitch their own tent at no extra cost.

Food:
All meals are included. A cooked breakfast, lunch and sit down evening meal, with snacks and drinks available throughout the day. The menu will be vegetarian and as much as possible sourced locally, an effort to reduce our environmental impact. You are welcome to bring extra food. We will endeavour to cater for any extra dietary needs.

What to bring:
Specialist materials needed for workshops will be included, however participants may need to bring some of their own equipment depending on which workshops they partake in. A guide of what you will need to bring will be sent out to successful applicants.

Library:
We will be creating a pop up library during the residential! All participants, artists and contributing practitioners will be asked to bring two books with them that will be accessible by all for reference over the course of the week. Guidance on what to bring will be given to successful applicants.

Travel:
There are public transport routes to the Centre. We will send out directions and suggested travel options to successful applicants. For those considering driving there is a limited amount of parking at the Centre so to avoid congestion and to limit our environmental impact we will be setting up a car share system prior to the event.

Fees:
The Dartmoor Summer School of Photography is a non profit event run by Positive Light Projects. Any proceeds left over from fees will be invested in the event and/or in other events run by the organisation. The cost of the week is £750.

Workshop: Salt Printing Melitte Buchman
Mar
2
to Mar 3

Workshop: Salt Printing Melitte Buchman

Salt printing was among the earliest photographic processes, discovered by Fox Talbot in 1834. This means that salt printing pre-dates daguerreotypes by quite a shot. Fox initially referred to this technique as photogenic drawing. Later when the idea of negatives was invented (also by Fox Talbot in 1841) salt printing was paired with negatives to produce photographic prints.  

Salt printing is a technique that combines NaCl (table salt), silver nitrate and gelatin.  Paper is “salted” with a combination of gelatin and salt.  It is then sensitized with an application of light-sensitive silver nitrate solution.  A contact print is made in full sun or ultraviolet light with a negative facing the light source and the sensitized paper sandwiched beneath to create a final print.  It is a lovely soft process that sinks into the fibers of the paper and is often sepia, bluish-black or purplish in tone.  It was used extensively until about the 1850s.

Exhibition: The Street Philosophy of Garry Winogrand

Exhibition: The Street Philosophy of Garry Winogrand

GARRY WINOGRAND,  New York , 1972

GARRY WINOGRAND, New York, 1972

Fraenkel Gallery is pleased to present The Street Philosophy of Garry Winogrand, an exhibition inspired by Geoff Dyer’s new book of the same title, published by University of Texas of Press. Touching on themes and subjects that Winogrand explored over the course of his celebrated career, the images offer what Dyer claims for Winogrand’s photography: an education in seeing. The exhibition will be held at 49 Geary Street, 4th floor, from February 21 to March 16, 2019.

The exhibition largely emphasizes lesser-known works from the 1960s and 1970s: New York street scenes as well as photographs from sports events, zoos, national parks, beaches, airports and other places where Winogrand explored the chaotic and surreal social interactions that make up everyday life.

Winogrand, who died in 1984, was exhibited as part of Fraenkel Gallery’s second season in 1980. The Street Philosophy of Garry Winogrand will be the gallery’s 12th Winogrand exhibition, each of which has emphasized a different aspect of the artist whom John Szarkowski of the Museum of Modern Art called “the central photographer of his generation.” The Street Philosophy of Garry Winogrand precedes the broadcast premier of Sasha Waters Freyer’s award-winning documentary Garry Winogrand: All Things Are Photographable, which will be shown on PBS’s American Masters in April.

Garry Winogrand (1928–1984) was born in New York, and was the recipient of numerous grants, including three Guggenheim Fellowships and a National Endowment for the Arts Fellowship. His work was included in the Museum of Modern Art’s landmark 1967 “New Documents” exhibition, curated by John Szarkowski. In 2013, the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art mounted a major retrospective of his work, which traveled to the National Gallery of Art, Washington D.C.; the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York; Jeu de Paume, Paris; and Fundacíon MAPFRE, Madrid. His work is in the collections of the Museum of Modern Art, New York; the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York; J. Paul Getty Museum, Los Angeles; San Francisco Museum of Modern Art; and the National Gallery of Art, Washington, D.C., among many others. His numerous monographs include The Man in the Crowd: The Uneasy Streets of Garry WinograndThe Animals, and Women are Beautiful, among others.

Exhibition Viewing Times:

About Fraenkel Gallery:

Since 1979, Fraenkel Gallery has presented more than 300 exhibitions exploring photography and its relation to other arts. The exhibitions have spanned the medium’s history, from its early masters to the present day. The gallery’s first exhibitions investigated the work of Carleton Watkins, Lee Friedlander, and NASA’s lunar photographs, and these set the tone and pattern for what followed. Because photography’s brief history lends itself to examination backward, forward, and sideways in time, the gallery has presented exhibitions by artists as diverse as Bernd & Hilla Becher, Walker Evans, Eugene Atget, Edward Weston, Diane Arbus, Sol LeWitt, and Hiroshi Sugimoto. The gallery is a primary representative for the work of Diane Arbus, Robert Adams, Lee Friedlander, Adam Fuss, Katy Grannan, Richard Learoyd, Richard Misrach, Nicholas Nixon, and Hiroshi Sugimoto, and represents the estates of Garry Winogrand and Ralph Eugene Meatyard. In addition to its museum-quality exhibitions, the gallery has maintained a vigorous publishing program including numerous monographs and exhibition catalogues.

In exhibitions such as Edward Hopper & CompanyThe Heart is a Lonely HunterOpen SecretsNot Exactly Photographs, and Nothing and Everything, Fraenkel Gallery has brought together work across media, interweaving photography, painting, drawing, and sculpture. The gallery maintains long-established relationships with museums, private collectors, and corporations around the world, and welcomes the experienced collector as well as anyone beginning to collect.

  • Google Calendar ICS

Join Medium for one of our most sought-after workshops with photographer Susan Burnstine. This two-day workshop focuses on exploring and realizing individual narratives through the power of the still image. Using metaphor, symbolism and personal stories participants will learn to articulate and refine their vision in any genre of the medium, whether that be landscapes, portraits, still life, nature, abstract, photojournalism, self-portrait or documentary. As photographers, our images are deeply rooted in personal emotion despite being self-created or found scenarios. The aim of this workshop is to guide photographers to develop an emotional understanding of each image they create, and to convey their vision in a meaningful, honest and consistent manner.

The element uranium is generally thought of today in connection with nuclear reactors or atomic bombs, but in the 19th century and the early part of the 20th century it played a significant role in photography. Most often it was used as a toner, producing red-brown tones on silver prints and blue, green and red tones on platinum prints. Students will explore the possibility of this salt exclusively and in combination with other precious metals. Some consider this the ‘holy grail of obscure alternative photography’. Hosted at the Penumbra Foundation.

Workshop: Collodio-Chloride with Morgan Post

The Collodio-Chloride printing out process was a major innovation with contributions from a multitude of innovators.  The use of collodion on paper was a Talbot innovation in 1854, was in general commercial use in 1867 by Obernetter and was mass produced up to the 1930’s.  This process is extremely stable, easy to coat and creates an extremely fine detailed image.  It is naturally married to those wanting to print collodion negatives, film negatives, and digital negatives.

Workshop: Tintype Photography with Nathan Lomas

If you’re tired of the digital rat race and are looking for a “new” way to shoot, try returning to the roots of photography with this intensive tintype workshop.

Tintype photography workshop instructor Nathan Lomas is fascinated by the ambiguities and tones that tintype photography creates and its contrast to today’s digital photography. Tintype pictures are a direct-positive photographic process (also referred to as wet plate collodion) that was prevalent from the 1850's to the 1880's. The end product is a one-of-a-kind image that will last a lifetime!
