SPACE presents landscape photographs by Lee Friedlander, John Divola, Nan Goldin, Jack Pierson, Juergen Teller, Catherine Opie, Todd Hido, Peter Sutherland, Mike Brodie and Jim Mangan.
The notion of space as a signifier of personal freedom has long been a defining component of the myth of the American West. SPACE is a consideration of classic landscape photography, and what it means as we increasingly interact with our surroundings via digital media. SPACE reflects how photography glorifies but also domesticates our environment, from Ansel Adams to #sunsetporn in our Instagram feeds.
To quote Owen Wilson in Armageddon, "Dude, we're in space. Not outer space… but SPACE.”
SPACE opens Thursday, January 16; reception from 6-8pm. An additional opening weekend party will be hosted by Sky Lodge on the evening of Saturday, January 18.
