Below is an update on some of the latest goings on with three Aperture artists. On view at the Greenberg Van Doren Gallery in New York, The New Antiquity, features work from artist Tim Davis. Similar in tone to My Life in Politics, Davis surveys contemporary culture with his decisive lens, always with an element of wit and skepticism.
Photographer Brian Ulrich of MP3: Midwest Photographers Publication Project, is on display at Robert Koch Gallery in San Francisco. His exhibition, Dark Stores responds to the 2001 call from the U.S. government to stimulate the economy through shopping. The work presents a skeptical gaze at the over-developed suburban retail landscape that is instantly recognizable, even considering his omission of logos and brand names.
One of the artists from Aperture’s The Edge of Vision: Abstraction in Contemporary Photography, artist Silvio Wolf has a solo exhibition in Milan, Before Time, featuring works created specifically for Galleria Nicoletta Rusconi that explores the dynamic relationship between object and viewer. Wolf’s project was conceived as a single work consisting of seven different elements, which form a series of stations. After spending years examining images and their role in contemporary society, Wolf now shifts focus to the viewer and to the resulting interaction from this relationship.
