Article Discusses Gallery Artist Carl Zimmerman's Work

Essay: Rob Walker
Implausible Futures for Unpopular Places

"Beginning in 2010, the Hypothetical Development Organization, founded by G.K. Darby, Ellen Susan and me, set out to recognize, and expand upon, a form of urban storytelling. It works like this:

First, we identify a suitable building: Something that appears neglected, and seems to have no immediate prospects for a future use. In short, we choose an unpopular place. Next we devise a hypothetical future for that structure.... " - Rob Walker

REMINDER - Artist Talk with George S. Zimbel Tomorrow!

Please join us for our artist talk for George S. Zimbel's Photographs of Children.

Little Joe Louis, Philadelphia, 1953

Exhibition Dates: July 21 – September 17, 2011
Artist Talk: Saturday, July 23, 2pm. RSVP as seating is limited.

The gallery is pleased to present its second exhibition by the acclaimed photographer George S. Zimbel, which concentrates on his wonderful depictions of childhood taken over a period of seven decades.

An alumnus of Columbia University, the Photo League and the Alexey Brodovitch Seminar, Zimbel (b. Woburn, Mass. 1929) honed his craft in New York City, working for national magazines (Look, The New York Times, Redbook, Parents, Architectural Forum, etc.). Parallel to assignments he was always at work on self initiated projects. These included diverse subjects such as 1950s European photographs, readers from libraries to submarines, politics in the U.S. and Canada, Marilyn Monroe in The Seven Year Itch, and the ongoing chronicle of his family. For decades, Zimbel has displayed an uncanny ability to take quintessential photographs depicting our life and times.

The Zimbels left the United States and operated Bona Fide Farm on Prince Edward Island from 1971-1980. After moving to Montréal in 1980, Zimbel has been printing and exhibiting from his extensive archive and has had many solo exhibitions at galleries and museums around the world. In 2000, he was honoured with the largest photography exhibit ever shown at Institut Valencià d’Art Modern in Spain, accompanied by a major catalogue. In 2001, Zimbel was given the Lifetime Achievement Award of Canadian Photographers in Communications and was short listed for the Roloff Beny Award for best Canadian photographic book. In 2004, Zimbel had a retrospective exhibition at Confederation Centre Museum and later that year he had a major presence in the Marilyn Monroe exhibition at the Brooklyn Museum. He was subsequently featured in the PBS American Master’s production Marilyn Monroe: Still Life. In 2005, Zimbel had a retrospective exhibition at the Canadian Embassy in Tokyo and the Owens Art Gallery at Mount Allison University followed by the publication of his book Bourbon Street New Orleans 1955. In 2006, he was inducted into the Royal Canadian Academy of Art.

Zimbel’s work is in the collections of National Gallery of Canada, Ottawa; Musée national des Beaux-Arts du Québec, Québec; Musée des beaux Arts de Montréal, Montréal; Musée d’art Contemporain de Montréal, Montréal; Confederation Centre Art Gallery & Museum, Charlottetown; Owens Art Gallery, Sackville; Canadian Museum of Contemporary Photography, Ottawa; Museum of Modern Art, New York; The Jewish Museum, New York; International Center of Photography, New York; Museum of Fine Arts, Houston; Institut Valencià d’Art Modern, Valencia; Brooklyn Museum, New York; Tokyo Metropolitan Museum of Photography, Tokyo; Santa Barbara Museum of Art, Santa Barbara; Musée National d’histoire d’art de Luxembourg, Luxembourg; and Norton Museum of Art, West Palm Beach.

"A lot goes into a finished documentary photograph: a very personal view of life, a knowledge of technique, and of course information. It is the information that grabs the viewer, but it is the photographer's art that holds them” George S. Zimbel

Gallery Artist Robert Bourdeau interviewed by Bill Clarke

Energized Landscapes: Robert Bourdeau’s art of looking and seeing

Submitted by Magenta on Thu, 07/07/2011
By Bill Clarke


Lorraine, France, 1998 © Robert Bourdeau

Since 1959, veteran Canadian photographer Robert Bourdeau has produced a body of work that emphasizes exacting craftsmanship in the production of the final print, and extensive looking and seeing before the exposure of the film. Influenced by photographers such as Minor White and Paul Strand, Bourdeau’s subject matter has ranged from grand architectural interiors to landscapes to still lives. He has produced photographs in Mexico, Costa Rica, England, France and the U.S., and his work can be found in museum collections all over North America, including the National Gallery of Canada, the Vancouver Art Gallery, the Art Institute of Chicago, and the Los Angeles Country Museum of Art. In May, the Magenta Foundation published The Station Point, a monograph of Bourdeau’s work that captures the essence of Bourdeau’s contemplative and detailed work. By phone from his home in Ottawa, the photographer talked to Magenta editor Bill Clarke about his favourite places to shoot and how to capture the energy of the landscape in a photograph.

Gallery Artist Sunil Gupta article on Time.com

Indian Summer at Centre Pompidou

By Siddharth Dhanvant Shanghvi

"The big takeaway from "Paris-Delhi-Bombay," an exhibition of work by some 50 French and Indian artists running until Sept. 19 at Paris' Centre Pompidou, is that Indian (and Indian-inspired) art doesn't fit into neat categories. That hasn't deterred the curators from the audacious ambitions of explicating contemporary India through art and seeking correspondences between the visual languages of France and India. But instead the converse happens, and the show accentuates differences rather than similarities. While French artists enter the ring with an established aesthetic, the Indians arrive with a view to rewriting rules and challenging clichés, coming as they do from a country in the throes of social and economic transformation...." -Siddharth Dhanvant Shanghvi

Gallery Artist Phil Bergerson Featured on TIME Light Box

Phil Bergerson's Shard's of America

-Andrew Hinderaker
Friday, July 1, 2011

Phil Bergerson’s book Shards of America explores the culture of the United States through an investigation of it’s streets. In twenty years of road trips across America, Bergerson photographed window displays, everyday objects and street scenes in a formalistic, documentary style. The resulting book is a unique look at the things that make up American society. TIME spoke with Bergerson as he is working on his second book, Sublime Encounters, to discuss his process and inspiration.

Although he is from Canada, Bergerson was drawn to photographing America because “Americans seem to have no problem speaking what they think, at any time, and will actually put it out in public for all to see, and in my case, to photograph. I was really drawn to that American bravado because it allows you to see what’s underneath a lot of things that as Canadians we might be restraining ourselves from actually addressing. I think of myself as being the empathetic neighbor, viewing it as best as I can and perhaps giving some insight into it for others.”

By documenting the things that people are putting out in public, Bergerson’s photographs give the viewer insight into deeper, unintended meaning.

“I think of my photographs as messages,” Bergerson said. “People are trying to reach out and address something that’s personal to them or is disturbing them in some way. Sometimes they’re communicating without knowing what they’re communicating. Other times, they’re really direct and are addressing something political, or a social struggle that they’re going through. And I feel, about a lot of things that I’m photographing, that I’m sort of a conduit for people who are trying to communicate. And a number of times, it really works in a beautiful way.”

Phil Bergerson is represented by Stephen Bulger Gallery in Toronto. His first book, Shards of America, is available on Amazon. Bergerson is currently in the final stages of producing his next book, Sublime Encounters.

THE WHITE DAWN

Dir. Philip Kaufman (UK: 1974), 110 min.

This is a Canadian film based in 1896 about three whalers who become stranded in the Canadian Arctic North who seek refuge with an Eskimo tribe. The film portrays the conflict between Canadian Aboriginal Peoples’ traditional way of life in conflict with Europeans’ eagerness to take advantage of them by introducing gambling, alcohol and theft. In the beginning the relationship is accepted, however, slowly the cultural tension starts growing.
