Sky Goodden of MOMUS Reviews Clive Holden's INTERNET MOUNTAINS Exhibtion

Mountains, Repetition, Screen Grab, 2014 © Clive Holden /

"Happily, a recent show at Stephen Bulger Gallery featured Clive Holden exercising such an enchantment. It seems significant that in his aesthetic reverie, he’s grounding the digital in the darkroom, and rooting the virtual realm’s constructed environment in the beauty of its coding. Holden’s digital prints and videos affirm where this technology comes out of, and how it’s produced....Internet Mountains features landscapes pocked with spectral light, images scanning cloudscapes and refracted color. The lens is recurringly referenced in this picture-making, even as we’re reminded of its essential selfhood as digital manufacture." - Sky Goodden, October 27th, 2016

Beautiful Portrait of Legendary Curator and Gallerist Klaus Kertess by Gallery Artist Robert Giard Used in Kertess's New York Times Obituary

Klaus Kertess © The Estate of Robert Giard

The Robert Giard Foundation is sad to announce that legendary curator and member of the Giard Foundation Board Klaus Kertess, has died at age 76. 


"Klaus Kertess, a curator and director of the Bykert Gallery, where Brice Marden, Chuck Close and other artists started their careers in the 1960s, died on October 8th, 2016 in Manhattan. He was 76. Mr. Kertess had a good eye and an even better nose. Bykert quickly gained a reputation for ferreting out talented artists waiting for their first big break, most of them associated with Minimalism, Post Minimalism and Process Art." - William Grimesoct, Oct. 16, 2016

Gallery Artist Phil Bergerson in Group Exhibition "Window / Vitrine" at The National Gallery of Canada

Martinsville, Indiana, 2006 © Phil Bergerson /

"Window / Vitrine" is the first exhibition of the PhotoLab, an experimental gallery space of the Canadian Photographic Institute at the National Gallery of Canada.  This inaugural collaborative exhibition of the PhotoLab was inspired by the work of Josef Sudek (1896-1976) and will be presented from October 26 2016 until April 2017. The photographs by Eugene Atget, Nathan Lyons, Clara Gutsche, Pascal Grandmasion and Phil Bergerson, are drawn exclusively from the holdings of the Canadian Photography Institute at the National Gallery of Canada. 

Windows have fascinated artists for centuries.  But the transparency and reflectivity of glass have made windows a particularly popular theme in photography – as both subject and symbol, from the time of the medium’s invention. Whether as an exploration of still life, portraiture, popular culture or even abstraction, photographers have been attracted to the subject of windows.  With their ability to both reveal and obscure, to challenge ideas about the viewer and the viewed, or to dissolve the boundaries of inside and outside space, windows have been used as a metaphor for the act of looking itself.

Shop windows, or vitrines as they are known in France, became of particular interest to photographers in the mid-19th century.  As a frame or a stage, the storefront window presented objects in isolation from their usual context.  This display of articles became a form entertainment for the passerby, the urban explorer or flâneur. More recently, windows have served as site of visual commentary about the fragmentary, ephemeral and sometimes absurd nature of modern life.
