exploring the urban landscape, during the months of July and August.
THE CITY is composed of works by artists who have engaged the city in a multiplicity both of approach and subtext indicative of a city's inherent complexity. Employing a variety of media from photography and video to diagrammatic drawings and blueprints, the artists search and examine interiors, as in John Pilson's photographs and video detailing the architecture of corporate office spaces or Jessica Craig-Martin's views of social galas; they scrutinize and impact exterior landscapes, as in Jennifer Bolande's City at Night series, Udi Aloni's designs for billboard advertisements, or Miranda Maher's constellations traced on the sidewalks of Brooklyn. Some approach their subject literally, as in Roy Arden's photograph of a desolate Vancouver home or Thomas Struth's abandoned Roman street, while others interpret the city and movement through it more abstractly-Vito Acconci's Spy Project, Peter Greenaway's Roman postcards from the Dear BoulÃ©e series, Lordy Rodriguez's imagined maps. Ever present is the simultaneous structure and disarray of urban architecture, the traces of its inhabitants; however, THE CITY serves ultimately to attest to the endless manifestations of spaces possible when millions of people converge.
Opening reception Friday July 14, 5 - 7 pm
