Jan Groover: Still Lifes

April 4 - May 27
Janet Borden, Inc., 91 Water Street
Brooklyn, NY 11201 United States
+ Google Map

Working exclusively in photography, Jan Groover's photographs are a touchstone of formalist art. Working both in color and platinum-palladium, she made "a laboratory of forms." The exhibition will be changing throughout its duration, in order to exhibit more images. This famous series of color photographs possess an elegance as fresh as it was when it was first shown in the 1970s. At that time, the 16” x 20” chromogenic color prints were considered “big pictures,” and today, they still remain…

Higher Pictures Generation, 16 Main Street
Brooklyn, NY 11201 United States
+ Google Map

Higher Pictures Generation is pleased to present Time On A Bottle by Jessica Eaton. This is the artist’s fifth solo exhibition with the gallery. Over the past decade, Eaton has methodically interrogated the additive theory of color in photography. But when COVID lockdown and curfews hit her home city of Montréal, Eaton suddenly lost access to everything that was necessary to produce her intensive Cubes for Albers and LeWitt photographs. Alone at home, the artist took to the bottle; at the same…

Jiří has been doing visual exploration of places with his cameras for the last 27 years. His approach is neither academic nor purely political - it is solely based on a set of fixed or unfixed coordinates within which he and his camera moves, consistently looking for signs and gestures. The phonetic names of places, seasons, earth-shattering events and those overlooked…

A.I.R. Gallery, 155 Plymouth Street
Brooklyn, NY 11201 United States

Searching for Peace, an exhibition of new work by Yvette Drury Dubinsky, is evidence of the inevitable interplay between an artist’s solitary workings in the studio and those of a turmoiled outside world. While serious in subject matter, Dubinsky’s work is also intuitive and playful—a metaphor for a multifaceted life.
