Richard Phillips "Negation of the Universe" @ Dallas Contemporary

Juxtapoz // Saturday, April 12, 2014
In his first US solo museum exhibition, Richard Phillips brings his exploration of contemporary culture to Dallas. His strikingly distinctive paintings address the complex web of pop themes in our media-saturated world – sexuality, politics, power and death among them. For Phillips, critique is as much an intrinsic material in the conception and staging of his work as the materials of their making. His conflating of subject and genre continues to provide challenging comment on the condition and reach of contemporary art.

American Prospects

Photography // Saturday, April 12, 2014
In the 1970’s and 80’s photographer Joel Sternfeld photographed across America to create his series “American Prospects”. Using the culture that he found during his travels, Sternfeld had an uncanny eye for the absurdity in each scene. From a fireman buying a pumpkin from a farm stand in front of a burning building to a family looking over the edge of the Glen Canyon Dam with a baby in a play pen behind them appearing unsupervised and staring at the photographer, each image invites the viewer to explore the potential disasters and absurd scenes that each photograph conveys.
