Sanaz Mazinani: Frames of the Visible

The gallery is pleased to present our first solo exhibition by Canadian-Iranian photographer Sanaz Mazinani.

SANAZ MAZINANI
Frames of the Visible

Exhibition Dates: May 5 – June 9, 2012
Artist Talk: Saturday, May 5, 1-2p (RSVP as seating is limited)

In “Frames of the Visible,” Sanaz Mazinani examines the disassociation that occurs between an event and its photographic record. Using destabilizing images of war mined from online news media outlets, Mazinani constructs photographic collages that collapse the intimations of the original image, thus creating a new representation of conflict.

  Together We Are, 2011
    
Mazinani explores the relationship between perception and representation by drawing from concepts such as censorship, scale, and the body as a site of action or violence. For instance, juxtaposing appropriated images of a female suicide bomber and of media darling Paris Hilton, creates a new meaning that can affect our understanding of an image and how it is used to illustrate and construct history. The geometric patterns created by sequentially coupling, repeating, mirroring, and multiplying her source material references Islamic ornamentation, pairing traditional Eastern and contemporary Western image production techniques. These works examine the radical ways in which individuals perceive the same object with differing complexity. Mazinani seeks to recognize how political realities are represented in photography. She visions the perspectival frames of warfare, while acknowledging the complicated nature of our modern existence in a globalized world.


The In-between, 2011

Mazinani (b. Tehran, Iran, 1978) is an artist, curator, and educator based in San Francisco and Toronto. Born in Tehran, Iran, she holds her undergraduate degree from Ontario College of Art & Design University and her MFA from Stanford University. She co-edited ALMANAC: An Index of Current Work and Thought, a collaborative publication addressing the relationship between theory and practice (Stanford University, 2010). She was the 2011 Visual Arts Curator for the Iranian Canadian Centre for Art & Culture’s interdisciplinary arts triennial, Tirgan. Most recently she was Guest Curator at Iris & B.

THE INVISIBLE PRESENT
Curated by Amirali Ghasemi/Parkingallery Projects, Tehran

"The Invisible Present" is a film series that introduces the vibrant new wave video art scene in Iran, which highlights the use of various disciplines, such as experimental film, animation, performance and photography. The artists—most of whom are younger than 35—work within Iran and across the globe. The Invisible Present sheds light on a generation that is not clearly defined and often harshly targeted internationally; a generation which seeks to be present and exercise their significant liberty to experiment, while being invisible to many.

Hank O'Neal: XCIA's Street Art Project



We are pleased to announce the launch of Hank O’Neal’s new book of photographs, XCIA’s STREET ART PROJECT: The First Four Decades¸ published by Siman Media Works. An exhibition featuring photographs from the book will be held in Gallery Two.

HANK O’NEAL
XCIA’s Street Art Project

April 28 – May 12, 2012

Opening Reception and Book Launch: Saturday, April 28, 2-5pm
Artist Talk: Saturday, April 28, 4pm (in Gallery Two)

XCIA’s STREET ART PROJECT:
THE FIRST FOUR DECADES
by Hank O’Neal

“A Spy Goes Vogue.”
-The Wall Street Journal

“The greatest visual tribute to perceived criminal mischief
there is to date.”
-Juxtapoz

“One of the greatest contemporary works of art I have ever experienced.”
-Tony Bennett

“Takes you right back to the moment, like a scent or a song can do.”
-Debbie Harry

“A wonderful photo collage.”
-Richard Hambleton (aka “The Godfather of Street Art”)

"Hank O'Neal has a remarkable talent for finding the numinous amid the grime.”
-American Photo

Before becoming a photographer, Hank O’Neal was an agent with the Domestic Operations Division of the Central Intelligence Agency. In the mid 1970s, encouraged by his friend and mentor the legendary American photographer Berenice Abbott, and inspired by Walker Evans’ Depression-era photos of peeling posters and hand-painted signs, O’Neal left the CIA and devoted himself to documenting the burgeoning street art scene in New York City. Over the next 40 years, he would take thousands of photographs, compiling a legacy of one of the most vital and significant movements in the world of art. XCIA’s STREET ART PROJECT: The First Four Decades (Siman Media Works; April 2012) is a meticulously documented, sumptuous celebration of some of the most beautiful, meaningful expressions of street art yet to be collected - early work of SAMO (Jean-Michel Basquiat’s original street name); Keith Haring’s “Radiant Baby” in the New York City subway; a Banksy mural in a Los Angeles parking lot; Richard Hambleton’s “Shadowmen” of the 1980s; JR’s “Faces with Eye Masks” in 2011; the “Silence=Death” pink triangle posters; and Shepard Fairey’s now-iconic “Hope” portrait of Barack Obama, among many others.


34 East 12th Street, Richard Hambleton & Jean-Michel Basquiat, NYC, 1982

“The street art I photograph," says Hank O'Neal, "must be in a public place, must be visually captivating and perhaps beautiful, must be the product of an informed intellect (not of a vandal), and must be purposeful. It can be a jolt by a single artist or a chaotic improvisation by dozens of different hands in unexpected places, in unexpected ways.” Part of O'Neal's talent lies in his ability to find and recognize art in often surprising places, whether it’s in a cemetery in Paris or a doorway on Madeira Island, a lifeguard station in Venice, California, or on a piece of the Berlin Wall.



Bomb Boy #1, Army of One/jc2 and artists unknown, Wooster Street, NYC, June 2010

Perhaps most important, in many cases, O’Neal’s photograph is the only visual record of a masterful work of street art, an art form that is ephemeral by its very nature. The photographs in XCIA’s STREET ART PROJECT capture hundreds of never-before-published photos showcasing the work of the most established street artists of several generations, including: Richard Hambleton, Keith Haring, Kenny Scharf, Jean-Michel Basquiat, Shepard Fairey, Banksy, Mr. Brainwash, Toofly, JR, Armyof1/jc2, and of course, “Artist Unknown.”


The Hedge Trimmer, Nick Walker, Cooper Square Hotel, New York City, 2011


About the author:
Hank O’Neal (aka XCIA) was a case officer with the Domestic Operations Division of the Central Intelligence Agency from 1963 to 1976. His previous books include The Eddie Condon Scrapbook of Jazz; A Vision Shared: A Classic Portrait of America and Its People, 1935–1943; Berenice Abbott: American Photographer; and The Ghosts of Harlem: Sessions with Jazz Legends. He lives in New York City.

Review of Gallery Artist Josef Hoflehner's Exhibition in Switzerland

Gallery Artist Sunil Gupta Exhibit Reopens in New Delhi

"Like racism, homophobia works in invisible ways. I believe there’s a conservative lobby in the infrastructure of things and they have mounted pressure on the situation in some way. Had there been photographs of women or hetero-sexual scenes, I don’t think there would be this kind of a reaction"
-Sunil Gupta, interview with Tehelka

Sunil Gupta's exhibit, Sun City and Other Stories, at Alliance Française in New Delhi was temporarily closed due to an individual's complaint regarding the content of the photographs. We are pleased to announce that the exhibit has been reopened as of yesterday, and will be shown until April 15.

Gallery Artist George S. Zimbel's book reviewed in E-Photo newsletter

"Zimbel's genius is to distill the utterly private act of reading into a public iconography of the purely human (maybe whales and primates can communicate more than we know, but they cannot page through the Times, arrested by some small-print revelation). Indeed, there's something infinitely touching in Zimbel's modest recognitions, as when he photographs schoolchildren anxiously concentrating upon their textbooks, or a woman straining to read a book in low light. Readers all--avid or casual, obsessive or avoidant--we've been and are these people, and Zimbel's camera loves us as much as it once loved Marilyn."
-Matt Damsker, E-Photo Newsletter #190, March 24, 2012

In the latest edition of E-Photo Newsletter, Matt Damsker reviews George S. Zimbel's A Book of Readers: Photos, which includes texts from Dany Laferriere, Vicki Goldberg and Elaine Sernovitz Zimbel. Damsker notes Zimbel as "a force for more than a half-century, known most famously, perhaps, for his images of Marilyn Monroe with her dress billowing up around her as she stood astride a New York City ventilation shaft (promoting her film, "The Seven Year Itch")" yet emphasizes that Zimbel's "career far exceeds his celebrity photography, and this book reveals some of his very best work, the unique outgrowth of his penchant for capturing the unselfconscious absorption of people in the act of reading".
