Stephen Daiter Gallery is pleased to debut new works by Ben Gest opening Saturday April 26. Extending and evolving his discourse on the
complexities and anxieties of private moments Gest's recent photographs
describe the struggle of self-limitation.
Expressed in careful constructions of gesture and posture these portraits explore personal conflict from early childhood through late adulthood.
Coming after Gest's critically lauded solo exhibition at The Renaissance Society in late 2006, and with the publication of a monograph due shortly, we are excited to present this next stage of one of Chicago's groundbreaking contemporary artists. We hope that you will join with us for a truly remarkable experience.
