MAX DE ESTEBAN & DOUG FOGELSON
Opening Reception: January 9, 6:00–8:00pm
Exhibition Dates: January 10 – March 9, 2019
We’re delighted to begin the new year with a two-person exhibition, showcasing the photographs of Max de Esteban and Doug Fogelson.
The exhibition runs concurrently with the prestigious European touring exhibition, Bauhaus und die Fotographie—the key exhibition presented across three venues in Germany, to celebrate 100 years of the Bauhaus. Fogelson and Esteban, are two of the ten contemporary photographers curated into the exhibition—including artworks by historical figures including Laszlo Maholy-Nagy—and considered to be exemplars of a new vision in contemporary art. For the exhibition in New York, the gallery brings together a selection of some of the same artworks.
Whilst the artists are individually concerned with different narratives, the aesthetics of their work meet via a shared visual concept, that is concerned with a reduction of three-dimensional objects into flattened graphic shapes and the dispensing of linear perspective inherent in Western art.
