The Edge of Vision Interview Series: Lyle Rexer and Charles Lindsay
Coinciding with the exhibition now on view at Aperture Gallery, The Edge of Vision: Abstraction in Contemporary Photography, a series of interviews will be posted every Thursday on the Aperture blog for the duration of the show. For the premiere, watch a video clip of curator Lyle Rexer speaking about how the project came about and explaining his curatorial choices. The exhibition gathers the work of nineteen international contemporary photographers who base their practice in some form of abstraction from highly conceptual to more documentary approaches. Rexer also explains his ground breaking photography exhibition encourages the viewer not to look at the photograph as a window but rather “to understand the relationship between the image and the surface.”
This second video clip presents artist Charles Lindsay included in the show, speaking about how he started working with his unique carbon emulsion process, his inspirations and the combination of his photographic, video and sound works.
Upcoming video clips include artists Bill Armstrong, Carel Balth, Ellen Carey, Manuel Geerinck, Barbara Kasten, Seth Lambert, Jack Sal, Penelope Umbrico, Silvio Wolf.
