Ulrich Wüst: Stadtbilder | Nachlass Reviewed in Los Angeles Times

May 25, 2017

Ulrich Wüst: Stadtbilder | Nachlass has been reviewed by Christopher Knight in the Los Angeles Times.

"Barely a single living soul is glimpsed in 48 black-and-white urban photographs from the late 1970s and early 1980s by Berlin-based Ulrich Wüst. When people are there, they’re typically obscured behind the windshield of a car on an otherwise empty city street, hidden within a dark sidewalk shadow in the composition’s margins or far off in the distance, back near the vanishing point of a brick roadway lined with shabby buildings."

Allan Sekula: Early Works Review in Artforum

Allan Sekula: Early Works Review in Artforum

April 4, 2017

Allan Sekula: Early Works has been reviewed by Kavior Moon in the April issue of Artforum. 

"Photography held a particular attraction for Sekula, whose eloquent writings on the medium’s history are as notable as his photo-based works. With characteristic clarity, Sekula outlined some of the appealing yet problematic features intrinsic to photography, including “its unavoidable social referentiality, its way of describing—albeit in enigmatic, misleading, reductive and often superficial terms—a world of social institutions, gestures, manners, relationships.” Photography, for Sekula, was not a means to an end but a social practice, one that would take him to port cities around the world as he conducted his final intensive studies of maritime industries and trade, prior to his death in 2013."

Sharon Ellis: Intimate Terrain Review in Los Angeles Times

Sharon Ellis: Intimate Terrain Review in Los Angeles Times

January 6, 2017

Sharon Ellis's exhibition, Intimate Terrain, has been reviewed by Leah Ollman in the Los Angeles Times. 

"The words that reflexively come to mind before Sharon Ellis' extraordinary work could use some customizing. Yes, she is a visionary but even more so a visionist, an apostle for sight, for observation as an active, acute, transformational practice. The scenes she paints suggest the supernatural, but since they are very much rooted in this world, they might better be described as super-natural. They represent not another reality but this one — amplified and intensified."
