Photography’s evolution as an art form has been influenced by countless individuals, thematic styles, and chemical processes.

I think the American attitude is all about power. “We have dollars, we have atomic bombs, we have the power, so shut your mouth, we are right.” I am not in an economically powerful situation. I am not in a socially powerful situation. I am an émigré. Not from a rich country but from a completely undeveloped and dirty East European country. In front of the entire Occidental world, a communist is di...

Curatorial Statement by A.E. Benenson:
At the birth of modern computing, a paradox: only after Alan Turing theorizes an infinitely large computer do we begin to plausibly imagine how our world could be digitally remade as small as possible. That is, it’s only after Turing fixed our technological gaze outwards onto infinity that we began our relentless dwindling inwards, towards miniaturized circuits a...
Bonni Benrubi Gallery is pleased to present new work from Mali and Libya by acclaimed artist Jehad Nga. This new body of work by Nga once again strikes a powerful aesthetic balance between the personal and the political; the emotive and the pragmatic; the humane and the inhumane.

From the position of that bench, the houses had a background of sky and sea only and could be viewed as sculptural objects in themselves a...
Floaters are deposits of various size, shape, and consistency that exist within the eye’s vitreous humor. They may appear as spots, webs, fragments, or threads that float slowly before the observer’s eyes. In this exhibition, BravinLee programs presents the work of seven painters, whose abstracted imagery is located between the familiar and peculiar, revealing spatial ambiguities and vague references. Mo...
