We as photographers all too often fall victim to the editing cave, justifying deadlines and endless editing as reasons we we can’t go out and seek inspiration from our fellow artists. We’ve come to recognize the inarguable benefits of reflecting on the work of others, conversing with fellow photographers, and taking a much needed break from our digital darkrooms. Over the course of March, ASMPNY will be hosting two rounds of “ASMPNY On The Town” – gallery walks to photographic exhibitions happening in the same area at the same time.
Saturday, March 16th, we will be meeting at 12pm at ClampArt to see their two exhibitions by artist Pipo Nguyen-duy: (My) East of Eden & Hotel Window, explorations of reclaiming his childhood memories of growing up in Vietnam during the Vietnam War and mapping his culture from an outsider’s point of view using the hotel room as his natural frame. Afterwards, we’ll walk to 303 Gallery for 1pm, where we will review the work of Elad Lassry, followed by Misdemeanors, a feminist perspective on the intersection of gender and justice in social, cultural, political, and legal contexts, and Carol Jacobsen: Life On Trial, a video installation that investigates women’s criminalization from the perspective of a woman who killed her rapist in self-defense at Denise Bibro Fine Art Co at 1:30pm. We’ll finish out the gallery walk at Chambers Fine Art at 2:15pm to view their two shows, Pixy Liao: Open Kimono, and Taca Sui: Grotto Heavens.
Join us on a stroll together to take in a few shows, get some fresh perspective, fresh air, and perhaps stop by a bar for a local happy hour after.
