I’ll have work in 2 shows this year at Photoville, running on weekends from September 19 - 29. About the festival:

PHOTOVILLE is a new Brooklyn-based photo destination, a pop-up village of freight containers transformed into temporary exhibition spaces, which first took place in the summer of 2012. Photoville featured a feisty mix of exhibitions, lectures, hands-on workshops, night-time projections, a photo dog-run, a camera-flower greenhouse, and a summer beer-garden with food trucks that created a photography destination like no other.

Occupying more than 60,000 sq. feet in the heart of Brooklyn Bridge Park, in its first year Photoville was located on the uplands of Pier 3, along the Brooklyn Waterfront and attracted close to 40,000 visitors over 2 long weekends.

M+B is pleased to announce APPARATUS, a group exhibition curated by Tim Barber. The exhibition will be on view from July 11 through August 31, 2013, with an opening reception for the artists on Thursday, July 11 from 6 to 8 pm.


Apparatus is a group exhibition, curated by Tim Barber, that brings together an eclectic mix of artworks that deal in some form with the human form. That form, our form, is represented in a multitude of ways: as gesture, as icon, as idol, as Eros, as object, as abstraction, as tool, as mirror, as fantasy, as self, as joke, as real, as fake. An apparatus is a set of materials or equipment designed for a particular use. The word can also be used to describe the body, and the inner-workings of the body-anatomical or cytological parts functioning together. We are each an apparatus, built out of apparatuses, down to the cellular level. As a group, this collection of artworks forms a new kind of apparatus, one who’s designated use changes with each new set of eyes.


Participating artists include Daniel Arnold, Asger Carlsen, Jeanette Hayes, Jerry Hsu, Sandy Kim, Andrew Kuo, Ryan McGinley, Santiago Mostyn, Jason Nocito, Brad Phillips, Charlie Roberts, Brea Souders, Aurel Schmidt, Kate Steciw, Deanna Templeton and Ed Templeton.

Goings On About Town: Art

John Mann and Brea Souders

Two photographers who take a playful approach to their medium make an entertaining pair. Mann turns colorful maps and globes into sly tabletop sculptures, which he photographs as if they were features of a miniaturized landscape: a road sign, a billboard, a spiralling off-ramp. His touch is light and poetic, with echoes of Joseph Cornell, and a similar blend of sophistication and childlike pleasure in materials. Souders scatters snippets of old negatives on shiny sheets of acetate, then photographs them as random collages—bright shards of color, some as wispy as blades of cut grass. Save for a few recognizable images, these are jazzy abstractions, funny and fresh. Through March 2.

Opening this week at Daniel Coney Fine Art, Film Electric, the gallery’s first exhibition of photographs by Brea Souders. By compiling discarded film, static electricity and strong light, the photographs touch on the artist’s personal history. Below, some more context to describe her process:

The images are created with shredded negatives from the artist’s archive attached to electrically charged sheets of acetate. Where the static force is strong, slices of film hold to the acetate. Where it is weak, they fall away. The acetate is then photographed using a flash, which reflects and creates streaks of white. This obscures some images while bringing others into relief. The reflected light also forms the photographs’ luminous internal frame. As appropriate to this process, the images’ final form exudes an element of playfulness and relies on the spirit of chance.

The show will be open January 24 - March 2. For more information, visit the gallery’s website here.
