> DESCRIPTION

At the same moment that Photography itself has been declared "dead" and "dying", its dismembered and dematerialized corpse is mysteriously reappearing in the central nervous system, the structural body and the re-animating spirit of other practices ---painting, sculpture, architecture, installation. In PERSISTENCE OF VISION, curated and organized by Abigail Simon, three distinct emergent threads in the discourse take shape and questions about the “death” of photography are displaced by meditations on its evolution.

On Thursday July 29 6-9 the gallery will host a reception for SPECULATIVE TOPOGRAPHIES, featuring work by Molly Dilworth, Bettina Johae, Ben Gancsos, Abigail Simon , Marina Zurkow, and the WPC COLLECTIVE. These artists are engaged with looking at the relationship between the surfaces of the world, the descriptive methodologies used to map it, and the political/economic and social realities they mask, enable, challenge and enforce. The show will be open to the public until August 5.
