Alice O'Malley, 'Community of Elsewheres'14th June - 26th July 2008
These pictures are studio portraits of artists who inhabit the frontier of creative thought and individuality today. The subjects are complex, but the technique is quite simple - a 1950s view camera, black and white film, and a natural light studio. The collection contains stolen property from Cecil Beaton's archive, Bellocq's brothel and Romaine Brooks' paintings of masculine women. The set is downtown Manhattan. The time is a new millennium. (Alice O'Malley)
Isis Editions will also be publishing 'Community of Elsewheres' (48 page, 18 plate, hardback) in a signed, limited edition of 500 on the occasion of this exhibition.
