The city as hardware, soft infrastructure, and idea   Pick-button-5bf6c1b36c3b74ec8f312c7c9f6f1ae3

Horizontals, verticals, and some disciplined curves, squares and angles offset by relentless electrical streetlights. The wall with forty vintage photographs marking the start of The Rush and Calm, Moments in the City looks like an architect’s drawing table. Karl Hugo Schmölz’s 1950s documentation of German cinemas, orchestra houses, car dealerships, and shopping malls clearly illustrates the strong focus on hardware during the post-war Reconstruction period. They show the city as... [more]

Daniel Arnold and the Dogs of the Moscow Subway   Pick-button-5bf6c1b36c3b74ec8f312c7c9f6f1ae3

When I first sat down to write, I felt an uncomfortable compulsion to defend the work of photographer Daniel Arnold against comments posted on his Instagram. Three weeks later, after his one-day sale reported on by Forbes, there's much more to defend. It's anathema to me to have to defend art. With no inherent purpose, art exists outside of both defense and recrimination. Besides, to defend art is to give credence to the accusations levelled against it, and in the case of Arnold, the accusations and a... [more]

Brassaï at Hôtel de Ville November 8th, 2013 - March 8th
Posted 12/29/13

Hôtel de Ville is the proud host of a retrospective exhibition of Brassaï’s photography of his beloved Paris. The native Hungarian, Gyula Halasz, worked under the pseudonym ‘Brassaï’, (referring to his hometown Brassó). Brassaï moved to Paris in 1924 and never returned to his home country. From 1925 he was socialising with the likes of Eugène Atget, André Breton and Salvador Dalí amongst others, and in 1949 he was granted French n... [more]

Review: James Nares - Street  
by

Originally published on Peanut Butter Thoughts: http://www.peanutbutterthoughts.com/james-nares-street/ James Nares’ 61-minute slow-motion video entitled Street, the centrepiece of the wide-ranging, similarly named current exhibition at the Metropolitan Museum of Art – guest curated entirely by Nares himself – has been drawing vast crowds of transfixed patrons daily since its premiere. This unassumingly and aptly named piece is indeed exactly what it professes to be: a... [more]

Garry Winogrand at SFMOMA - San Francisco Museum of Modern Art March 9th, 2013 - June 2nd, 2013
Posted 3/24/13

It’s hard to clear one’s head of all the preconceived notions and packaged analyses about an artist before going to meet their work for the first time. I made the mistake of reading other reviews before seeing Garry Winogrand’s photographs at SFMOMA (where I’m counting the days until it shutters for redevelopment, and I’ll be left a few old friends shy). One included a particularly barfy comparison of his New York period in the 1960s to the popular television program Mad Men. On the first pass, th... [more]

Vivian Maier and Vernacular Photography  
by
Vivian Maier at Steven Kasher Gallery April 12th, 2012 - May 26th, 2012
Posted 4/24/12

I first stumbled across Vivian Maier’s black and white street scenes at Mass MoCA over the summer and had the opportunity to re-visit her work in several New York City exhibitions. By now, everyone is familiar with the story behind this work. Maier worked as a nanny and had a passion for photography. Her time off was primarily spent photographing people on the streets of Chicago.  She died in 2009, leaving a storage locker full of tens of thousands of negatives and thousands of exposed but unde...
