The Architecture of Space

ARTISTS' RECEPTION: February 2, 6pm—9pm

 Installation view of The Architecture of Space at Klompching Gallery

Our new exhibition, The Architecture of Space, was originally conceived in response to an invitation from Magenta Foundation, to curate an exhibition of contemporary photography by US photographers for the Flash Forward Festival (Toronto, October 2010). We have been honored to work with the organisation in the past, performing the role of US Jurors for its annual Flash Forward Emerging Photographers Award.

The exhibition itself was enthusiastically received and we are now delighted to bring the work, of nine talented contemporary photographers, to the attention of our clients and a wider New York audience.

The photographs have been selected within the context of a curatorial exploration of the perception and representation of space—the collapse between public and private, the representation of its abstract form and how it acts as a metaphor.

In many respects, the selected artists also embody the state of contemporary photography itself; in that their artworks are not easily packaged into identifiable genres, but illustrate the blurring of those categories. This can be seen through the wide-reaching visual strategies employed, as well as the imaginative modes of production that bring attention to the photograph as an object of construction.

We've uploaded the photographs in the exhibit onto our website here, clicking the thumbnails takes you to larger images and print information.
