Loft Law at Westwood Gallery

Just the other day, we were thinking back and wondering how many of the artist live/work lofts from the 1960s and 1970s were still in existence. And then Joshua Charow’s new exhibition at Westwood Gallery fell right into our laps. I think I’ll get the book.

WESTWOOD GALLERY NYC presents Loft Law: Photographs by Joshua Charow, the first solo exhibition for New York-based documentary photographer and filmmaker Joshua Charow (b. 1998), curated by James Cavello. This is Charow’s premiere exhibition of his photographs and short documentary films on New York artists. The exhibition includes forty photographs by Charow and eighteen works of art by eleven of the artists featured in the photographs: Carmen Cicero, Loretta Dunkelman, Betsy Kaufman, Kimiko Fujimura, Joseph Marioni, Carolyn Oberst, Marsha Pels, Gilda Pervin, Steve Silver, Mike Sullivan, and Jeff Way.

To celebrate the centennial of Richard Avedon’s birth in 1923, The Metropolitan Museum of Art will present a selection of the photographer’s most innovative group portraits in the exhibition Richard Avedon: MURALS, opening January 19, 2023. Although Avedon first earned his reputation as a fashion photographer in the late 1940s, his greatest achievement was his stunning reinvention of the photographic portrait. Focused on the short period between 1969 and 1971, this exhibition will explore a critical juncture in the artist’s career, when, after a hiatus from portraiture, he began working with a new camera and a new sense of scale. The exhibition will be organized around three monumental photomurals in The Met collection (the largest measures nearly 10 x 35 feet) that depict the era’s preeminent artists, activists, and politicians. Uniting the murals with session outtakes and contemporaneous projects, the exhibition will track Avedon’s evolving approach to group portraiture, through which he transformed the conventions of the genre.

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.
