Keith de Lellis Gallery is pleased to present a group exhibition on the subject of photographic images of industrial buildings and structures by American and European photographers in the twentieth century. Inspired by The Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Bernd & Hilla Becher exhibition now on view at the museum through November 6, Industrial Architecture in Photography pays homage to the renowned husband and wife team Bernd and Hilla Becher. The prolific contemporary German artist duo focused on photographing and preserving a visual record of the industrial architecture of Western Europe and North America by methodically recording blast furnaces, water towers, grain elevators and other buildings with meticulous precision.

Sacred Pause, Sacred Fertilizer to Open at Nevelson Chapel

 

 

 

During the COVID-19 pandemic crisis (and social justice movements which ignited during the same period), humankind faced a torrent of emotions ~ sadness, grief, rage, fear, anxiety, and constant uncertainty. Nineteen female-identifying artists offer witness, through personal statements and artworks produced during this historic period, on what was awakened in their practice (and within) when they ceded to what presented in the pause.

Sacred Pause, Sacred Fertilizer features artworks produced since March 2020, drawn from a diverse body of 19 North American women artists.

Our Selves brings images that span more than one hundred years of photography into dialogue with each other. All of them were made by women artists who have responded to asymmetrical systems of power and have reframed gender and subjectivity in the process. Modernist artists in the first half of the twentieth century interrogated the politics of the gaze and explored new forms of address in portraiture, documentary images, and advertising; contemporary artists have highlighted the intersections of women’s rights, diasporic histories, and Indigenous sovereignty through oblique fabulation, queer language, and performative actions.

The Ford Foundation Gallery has announced the reopening of its gallery to an in-person exhibition on June 1, presenting everything slackens in a wreck, curated by Andil Gosine. The metaphor of wreckage evokes colonialism and the destruction left in its wake, but it also echoes what the exhibition’s curator calls the “wrecking work” of marginalized peoples who answer this destruction with art that invents its own subversive forms of order, rendering alternate visions of existence, and co-existence, imaginable, and therefore possible. Featuring the work of four artists with a shared diasporic heritage, everything slackens in a wreck is the first show to appear in the Ford Foundation Gallery space since its closure in March 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

That’s LIFE: Vintage Photographs From America’s Weekly Picture Magazine at Keith de Lellis Gallery

 

 

 

Keith de Lellis Gallery presents a selection of over fifty photographs assigned by the editors for the pages of Life Magazine, one of the most renowned picture magazines in the world. Published weekly from 1936 to 1972, the magazine chronicled in image and word every historical event both big and small that impacted the lives of Americans north, south, east and west. Life revolutionized how readers experienced these historical events by pioneering the photo-essay, where narratives are told through the power of pictures while words take on a less significant role. This exhibition captures the wide-ranging themes published in Life Magazine including politics, war and race to popular culture, major sporting events and everyday moments that were at the heart of American culture in the twentieth century.
