Will Steacy, who is a current contributor to Aperture’s ongoing initiative the NYC Green Cart Comission, has a new solo show The Montropolous Beast opening at Christophe Guye gallery in Switzerland this week. The Montropolous Beast, titled after a Zora Neale Hurston quote, brings together new and old works by the young artist whose photographs of America’s inner cities fall somewhere between photojournalist documentation and the poetics of romanticized realism. This will be Steacy’s first solo show abroad.

Things Fall Apart a group show curated by acclaimed photographer Amy Stein and featuring an exciting roster of photographers opens November 20th at Berlin’s Pool Gallery. The exhibit brings together works by photographers Robin Schwartz, who was published in Aperture’s Tiny Vices books series, Lisa Kereszi who recently spoke on Aperture magazine panel 10 Things You Should Know About Magazine Publishing Today, Justine Reyes who spoke in Aperture’s NYPH ’10 panel series, Zoe Strauss, Juliana Beasley, Stacy Mehrfar, and Amy Stein herself. This exhibit considers the ways these disparate artist’s works comment on a collective understanding of the fine balance in our contemporary world between order and safety and a looming sense of chaos or danger. Things Fall Apart is Steins curatorial debut at Pool Gallery although she has exhibited at the gallery before.
