Genre-Bending Photographers Featured in Exhibition @ Projects+Gallery
A new exhibition at projects+gallery "explores a new forefront of genre-bending photographers who work frenetically between the spaces of fine art, fashion photography, and the history of the medium to construct a contemporary experience of self-presentation and a new perspective on documentation in photography: one in which distinctions are blurred and expression is fluid." Curated by critic and author of The New Black Vanguard, Antwaun Sargent, the exhibition features artists Arielle Bobb-Willis, Yagazie Emezi, Joshua Kissi, Mous Lamrabat, Renell Medrano, Ruth Ossai, Justin Solomon, and Joshua Woods.
On conceiving of this exhibition, Sargent writes, “I am particularly interested in bringing together young image-makers who are working between the commercial and conceptual by creating worlds entirely their own; photographers who set their gazes on rethinking the possibility of photography by embracing its boundary-blurring potential which allows the images to address desire, beauty and being. The resulting work has an aesthetic all its own and a power that is drawn from the way that the images operate in many different contexts, photographically and culturally.”
