Travel and Leisure Online Review's Gallery Artist Alex Webb's Current Exhibition "La Calle" at Aperture, New York

Near Creel, Chihuahua, 1978 © Alex Webb / Magnum Photos
"It was 1974 when photographer Alex Webb first encountered the U.S.-Mexican border. Then 23-years-old, Webb was entranced by the border's sparse network of makeshift towns, somehow split both physically and psychologically between the two countries.

Unlike his reticent New England home, Mexico demanded a much more expansive palette and eventually, Webb would completely forego black-and-white film. Instead, the young photographer began to experiment with Kodachrome, resulting in a series of light-filled vignettes." - Katherine Wisniewski, Sept 2016

Gallery Artist Sunil Gupta in Group Exhibition at Warwick Arts Centre, Coventry, England


The Human Document: The Photography Persuasion from 1930s America to Present Day

Mead Gallery, Warwick Arts Centre
Friday October 7th to Saturday December 10th.  
Free Entry!

In 1962, the Museum of Modern Art in New York presented The Bitter Years, curated by Edward Steichen. This exhibition included over 200 images taken between the years of 1935-1944 by a small group of photographers working for the Historical Section of the Farm Security Administration Programme (the FSA). Many of the best known Depression-era photographers were fostered by the FSA including Walker Evans, Dorothea Lange and Arthur Rothstein. Under the direction of Roy Stryker, these photographers were sent out to document the plight of rural workers, to introduce ‘America to Americans.’

The Human Document takes The Bitter Years as its starting point in exploring artists’ enduring fascination with the FSA Historical Section– both as photographs designed to awaken human emotions and as a collective body of images. It presents a selection of photographs from The Bitter Years, corresponding to Steichen’s original thematic groupings, alongside photography by contemporary artists including, Sunil Gupta, Richard Billingham, Paul Graham, Chris Killip, Susan Lipper and Eileen Perrier as well as the film installation On Photography, People and Modern Times by Akram Zaatari.

The following is a message from artist Max Dean:

"I have a very large installation called Still that was part of the in/future festival at Ontario Place, which recently ended.

I really feel this is a very important piece in my body of work. While I expect the work will have a life after the festival, I think the installation is truly unique and worth visiting.

For me it is, and has been, a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity, and I am so pleased that Art Spin, CONTACT, and Ontario Place have agreed to open my work to friends for two more days (only Silo I and the Mountain will be open for viewing.)
