Measure

\n

August 14th\, 2015 &ndas h\; September 12th\, 2015

\n

Opening: August 13th at 7 pm

\n

Members&rsquo\; and Press Preview: August 13th at 6 pm

\n

To measure\, to quantify the physical and int angible dimensions of a place\, is to articulate facts in order to construc t values. The process of creating standards and guidelines of representatio n allows innovation to enter the realm of the establishment. What can be me asured can be capitalized\, historicized\, and sold.

\n

&nbs p\;

\n

While architectural representation conforms to a syst em of standards and guidelines that allows for the production of buildings\ , architecture is also the practice of giving form to thought. In the proce ss of creating edifices that house social\, political\, and spatial relatio ns\, architects make visible the functions of society in operational and as pirational terms. In this sense\, architecture is constantly innovating new forms of measurement and representation.

\n

 \;

\n

The pleasure and pressure to measure and be measured has become increasingly present. Access to growing data sets and new sensing technolog ies is widespread\, and the role of public and private domains in terms of information and space are being redefined. These contemporary conditions in vite us to reflect on our ideologies and values\, and the drawing is a mani festation of that which we are able to (and desire to) count\, measure\, an d draw.

\n

 \;

\n

Measure is an exhibitio n of 30 drawings by 30 international architects presenting 30 edifices of t hought. Drawings are of Storefront for Art and Architecture&rsquo\;s galler y space on 97 Kenmare Street in New York. Architectural representation\, wh ich draws upon the diagram as a conceptual and abstract component\, has his torically been criticized as obscure and self referential. The proliferatio n of data visualization in popular media today\, however\, allows us to eng age a much larger audience in conversations about measurement and represent ation. The 30 drawings presented at Storefront unveil the challenges of rep resentation and extrapolate them onto the architect&rsquo\;s table and the gallery walls.

\n

 \;

\n

Storefront&rsquo \;s third annual drawing show seeks to find measures\, resist measurement\, and measure the immeasurable by presenting the real to the fictional and t he functional to the symbolic. Measure positions the medium and the act of drawing as a process by which we seek coherence in data and representation\ , and shows that it is the making of facts that is the basis for the produc tion of futurity beyond existing norms.

Rotimi Fani-Kayode (1955-1989) \;will be touring with the support of \;SUArt Galleries \;traveling exhibitions program\, beginni ng with February 8 &ndash\; April 7\, 2016 at the \;P alitz Gallery at the Lubin House\, New York\, NY.

&hellip\;It is photography\, therefore&ndash\;Black\, African \, homosexual photography&mdash\;which I must use not just as an instrument \, but as a weapon if I am to resist attacks on my integrity and\, indeed\, my existence on my own terms.

\n

&mdash\; Rotimi Fani-Kayode\, 1 988

\n\n

Light Work\, in pa rtnership with Autograph ABP\, is pleased to present \;Rotimi Fani- Kayode (1955-1989)\, a solo retrospective of the work of this seminal and highly influential figure in 1980s black British and African contempora ry art. Although his career was cut short by his untimely death at the age of 34\, Fani-Kayode nonetheless remains one of the most significant names i n the history of black photography.

\n

C urated in collaboration with Mark Sealy and Renée Mussai of Autograph ABP\ , whose co-founder and first Chair was Rotimi Fani-Kayode\, the exhibition features a selection of his most important photographic works produced betw een 1985-1989\, including large-scale color works and arresting black and w hite images. Fani-Kayode&rsquo\;s photographic portraits explore complex pe rsonal and politically-engaged notions of desire\, spirituality\, and cultu ral dislocation. They depict the black male body as a focal point both to i nterpret and probe the boundaries of spiritual and erotic fantasy\, and of cultural and sexual difference. Ancestral rituals and a provocative\, multi -layered symbolism fuse with archetypal motifs from European and African cu ltures and subcultures\, inspired by what Yoruba priests call &ldquo\;the t echnique of ecstasy.&rdquo\; Hence Fani-Kayode uses the medium of photograp hy not only to question issues of sexuality and homoerotic desire\, but als o to address themes of diaspora and belonging\, and the tensions between hi s homosexuality and his Yoruba upbringing. This exhibition coincides with t he introduction of new punitive legislation in Nigeria\, Fani-Kayode&rsquo\ ;s country of birth\, as well as other countries in Africa in recent years outlawing same-sex marriages and membership of gay rights organizations.

&mdash\;

\n

Rotimi Fani-Kayode (1955&ndash\;1989) was born in Lagos\, Nigeria to a prominent Yoruba famil y who left Africa as refugees in 1966 and moved the UK. He later studied at Georgetown University and the Pratt Institute in the USA\, before settling permanently in London in 1983\, where he lived and worked until his early death from a short and unexpected illness on December 21\, 1989. A prominen t figure in the Black British art scene\, Fani-Kayode was the founding memb er and first chairman of Autograph ABP (Association of Black Photographers) in 1988. His photographs have been exhibited internationally since 1985\, with numerous recent solo exhibitions in London\, Boston\, New York\, and C ape Town. In 2003\, his work featured in the African Pavilion at the 50th V enice Biennale\, Italy and in 2011 in ARS 11 at Kiasma-Museum of Contempora ry Art in Helsinki\, Finland. Fani-Kayode&rsquo\;s work is represented in t he collections of numerous institutions and private collectors including th e Victoria &\; Albert Museum\, Walther Family Foundation\, Harvard Unive rsity&rsquo\;s Hutchins Center\, Kiasma-Museum of Contemporary Art and the collection of Yinka Shonibare MBE\, amongst others. Many of his photographs were created in collaboration with his late partner Alex Hirst and are col lected in the posthumous 1996 publication \;Rotimi Fani-Kayode and Alex Hirst: Photographs. His work is represented by Autograph ABP\, Lo ndon.

Steven Kasher Gallery is honor ed to present Leo Rubinfien: The City Beside You\, The City Inside You. The exhibition consists of 23 large-scale black and white photographs of New Y ork and its people\, and evokes the experience of moving through the city w ith great intimacy and subtlety. This is Rubinfien's first show of new imag es since his acclaimed work curating Garry Winogrand&rsquo\;s retrospective at the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art\, the Metropolitan Museum of Art \, the National Gallery of Art\, Washington\, and the Jeu de Paume. That ex hibition made many lists of the best museum shows of 2014.

\n

Rubinfien is known for his photographs from all over the world\, especially East Asia\, where he spent much of his childhood\, and for his work on the landscape of globalization. In this new exhibition\ , the quintessential expat comes home. Seeing New York again after years of traveling\, Rubinfien notes how the city &ldquo\;is characterized by the s ense of promise it holds out to the thousands of people who come to make th eir way here\, by its harshness\, its mixed sense of brightness and disappo intment\, by how it places itself within us yet always remains unknowable.& rdquo\;

\n

Rubinfien has published on N ew York once before\, in his short book The Ardbeg (Taka Ishii Gallery\, 20 10)\, a brief\, lyrical evocation of the city through the eyes of an outsid er. In that piece\, Rubinfien's longtime friend and colleague Akiyoshi Tani guchi recalled the New York of his youth: "This is my memory &mdash\; when I was in New York. Always hungry. Always has a kind of sharpness. Very roug h. I relate to New York darkness.... Something like the smell of the cigar\ , also the smell of garbage\, the weekend night in Manhattan\, you can smel l woman's perfume. Those smells are of human body\, human things."

\n

Rubinfien&rsquo\;s work has been admired for many years for its visual richness\, its sensitivity to human character\, its technical perfection\, the depth of feeling it brings to mundane subjec ts and the complex meanings it finds there. Many writers and viewers have c ommented on its unashamed yet unsentimental humanism.

\n

 \;

\n

Leo Rubinfie n first came to prominence as part of the circle of artist-photographers wh o investigated new color techniques and materials in the 1970s. His first o ne-person exhibition was held at Castelli Graphics\, New York\, in 1981\, a nd his first solo museum show was held at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in 1992. Solo exhibitions of his work have been held at major institutions wo rldwide including the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art\, the Cleveland Mu seum of Art\, the Seattle Art Museum\, and the Corcoran Gallery of Art\, Wa shington\, DC.

\n

Published in 2008\, h is book Wounded Cities (Steidl) was named as one of the essential photograp hy books of all time (Parr and Badger\, The Photobook\, Vol. 3) Wounded Cit ies explores the &ldquo\;mental wounds&rdquo\; that were left by the terror attacks in New York in 2001\, and other attacks in cities around the world . Solo exhibitions from this series have been mounted at institutions inclu ding the Corcoran Gallery of Art\, the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art\, the National Museum of Modern Art\, Tokyo\, the Yale University Art Galler y\, and the Museo d&rsquo\;Arte Contemporanea\, Rome. Additional monographs of the artist&rsquo\;s work include A Map of the East (Thames &\; Hudso n\, 1992)\; New Turns in Old Roads (Taka Ishii Gallery\, 2014).

\n

Rubinfien&rsquo\;s work can be found in numerou s public and private collections\, including the Metropolitan Museum of Art \, the Museum of Modern Art\, the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art\, the Whitney Museum of American Art\, the Cleveland Museum of Art\, the Seattle Art Museum\, the Tokyo Metropolitan Museum of Photography\, the Corcoran Ga llery of Art\, the Bibliotheque Nationale\, the Yale University Art Gallery \, the Fogg Museum at Harvard University\, the Museum of Fine Arts\, Housto n\, and the Center for Creative Photography of the University of Arizona. H e has held fellowships with the Guggenheim Foundation\, Japan Foundation\, Asian Cultural Council\, and the International Center for Advanced Studies at New York University\, and in 2009 was awarded the Gold Prize at the 5th Lianzhou International Photography Festival.

Steven Kasher Gallery is proud to announce a major exhibition\, Jill Freedman: Long Stories Short\, the f irst exhibition of the artist&rsquo\;s work at the gallery. The exhibition features over 50 black and white vintage prints from the late 1960s to the early 1990s. This overview includes work from her famous projects on New Yo rk cops\, New York firemen\, Resurrection City protestors\, circus workers\ , and dogs\, as well as unpublished photographs. When Freedman holds a came ra it is always to stand up for intimate causes. Photography is not her bus iness\, but her life partner. She photographs what she cares about\, whethe r that be major events of the 20th century such as Civil Rights protests an d the after-effects of the Holocaust\, or the everyday life of her beloved New York City.

\n

Described by art crit ic A.D. Coleman as &ldquo\;one of the great unsung documentary photographer s of her generation&rdquo\;\, Jill Freedman has captured over the past 40 y ears the joys and tragedies of ordinary life. In 1975-81\, executing what w ould become some of her most iconic work\, Freedman followed the firemen of Harlem and the South Bronx with her camera in hand\, after which she trans itioned to photographing New York City policemen in the Lower East Side and Times Square. Without a doubt Freedman&rsquo\;s heart belongs to New York City\, her chosen home since arriving here at age 25. &ldquo\;Coming to New York is always a way of getting away from your own life\,&rdquo\; she conf esses. In New York she exposes her lens to the heroism\, athleticism and dr udgery of our civil servants. She also scrutinizes the sex\, violence\, squ alor and cheeky humor scattered through our city. She portrays the citizens of New York with great affection\, but also with feelings of amusement\, d isgruntlement\, anger\, sorrow\, even despair. She is a photographer of tre mendous emotional range.

\n

Jill Freedm an is a self-made photographer. Born in 1939 in Pittsburgh\, Freedman studi ed sociology and anthropology before arriving in Greenwich Village in 1964. Starting her career as a singer in nightclubs\, she picked up a camera on a whim which led to a career as a full-time photographer. She never studied photography formally\, but took as mentors W. Eugene Smith\, Andre Kertesz \, Dorothea Lange and Henri Cartier-Bresson. She has rarely photographed on commission\, preferring to set her own assignments\, usually book-length p rojects. Freedman can be compared to one of the most iconic photographers o f New York\, Weegee\, with whom she shares the same tastes for the margins and for night life\, and the same love for all classes of New Yorkers.

\n

In May 1968\, she participated in the Po or People&rsquo\;s Campaign in Washington D.C.\, during which she started p hotographing Resurrection City\, built by the protestors on the Washington Mall. She published her first book\, documenting those events\, in 1971. Se ven books of the artist&rsquo\;s work have been published to date\, each li nked to a specific series: Old News: Resurrection City (Grossman\, 1971)\; Circus Days (Harmony\, 1975)\; Firehouse (Doubleday\, 1977)\; Street Cops ( Harper &\; Row\, 1982)\; A Time That Was: Irish Moments (Friendly Press\ , 1987)\; Jill&rsquo\;s Dogs (Pomegranate Art Books\, 1993)\; Ireland Ever (Harry Abrams\, 2004). Freedman is currently working on an eighth book\, a 30-year project featuring photographs of New York\, tentatively titled Madh attan. This exhibition will present works from all eight of her book projec ts.

P·\;P·\;O& middot\;W is pleased to present an exhibition of new work by Hunte r Reynolds.  \;For over twenty five years Reynolds has been using photo graphy\, performance and installation to express his experience as an HIV p ositive gay man living in the age of AIDS. He was an early member of ACT UP \, and in 1989 co-founded Art Positive\, an affinity group of ACT-UP to fig ht homophobia and censorship in the arts. His work addresses issues of gend er\, identity\, socio-politics\, sexual histories\, mourning\, loss\, survi val\, hope and healing. The exhibition at P.P.O.W will feature large-scale photo weavings\, a new video work and a Mummification skin that to gether reflect Reynolds&rsquo\; vision of himself\, his community\, and his role as a long-term AIDS survivor.

\n

T he central focus of the exhibition will be Survival AIDS 2\, a ser ies of photo weavings comprised from c-print grid-collages of scanned newsp aper clippings that Reynolds began collecting between 1989 and 1993. The cl ippings are grouped by formal and thematic connections with additional laye red images that reference Reynolds&rsquo\; modes of artistic practice\; spo ts of his HIV-positive blood\; portraits of Patina Du Prey\, his gender-flu id alter ego that spun through the streets of Germany\, New York and Califo rnia\; and images of his Mummification performances in which he is wrapped in cellophane and tape that forms a skin which is displayed after he emerges. \; Through his layering of media\, Reynolds has abstracted messages and infused his own images to create a space within the work where artist and audience\, present and past\, exist simultaneously. While his e arlier works in the Survival AIDS series sought to preserve a part icular moment in history\, this collection turns inwards\, using historical \, politically charged documents to recreate a visual retelling of his own personal narrative.

\n

Also on view will be Medication Reminder\, a new video work that Reynolds created f rom the recordings of a dear friend\, who for a year and a half called Reyn olds every day to remind him to take his HIV medication. Following his HIV strokes\, Reynolds was forced to take a strict regimen of pills twice daily \, which he was loath to do. As her messages accumulated\, Reynolds documen ted himself listening to the reminders\, sorting his pills\, and taking his medicine\, overlaid with audio clips of Reynolds talking to his friend as if she were there with him\, completing the voice mail conversations. \ ; Throughout the video we hear the sound of her voice of friendship intersp ersed with a rhythmic phrase: &ldquo\;Take your meds\, I love you\, take yo ur meds\, I love you\, bye.&rdquo\;

\n

T he body &ndash\; expressed through his Mummification performances\ , and the skins that he sheds as a result\, are a symbol of transformation. They are on view and depicted in the photo weavings\, as symbols of the ar tist reclaiming his diseased body&ndash\; taken together with Medicatio n Reminder\, the works in this exhibition tell Reynolds&rsquo\; own pe rsonal mythology\, as well as that of his community and those he loved.

\n

Reynolds will be having a concurrent exh ibition and performance at EXPO Chicago (Sept 14- 20) featuring a monumenta l photo-mural\, composed of clippings scanned from the archives of Act Up C hicago and Dr. Daniel Berger\, a Chicago doctor known for his cutting-edge work with HIV and AIDS patients.
