Phillip-Lorca diCorcia and the MAO Collection
So we thought it's worth pointing out 2 gallery shows many diCorcia fans might not have known about.
1. A new body of work which was on display at Glenn Horowitz Bookseller in East Hampton, NY. (Sorry this one closed on Sept 10th) Printed Matters. New Work by Philip-Lorca diCorcia
The show featured several one of a kind multiple exposure images, as a "random output" from doing some test printing. The images were mostly derived from images from his last major project.. My Storybook Life. So, while we're not sure how we feel about photographers re-using old images to make new work.. seems a bit too
lazy easy to us, there were some provocative narrative combinations. FYI.. Almost nothing from the show was sold as of this weekend.. but that maybe just due to the show's images all being small and over priced at $25,000 each.... more here...
This show is actually the back-room show to a much larger, amazing Mark Morrisroe retrospective.
But the smaller Boston School show packs a punch.. and includes works by Nan Goldin, Jack Pierson, David Armstrong, Gail Thacker, plus paintings by Tabboo. You'll also be happy to know.. This show includes 2
kick-ass favorite Phillip-Lorca diCorcia photographs generously on lone from The ModernArtObsession.com collection !!
