Gallery Luisotti is delighted to announce that the Albright-Knox Art Gallery has acquired a 17-element photographic installation by Ursula Schulz-Dornburg from her series Sonnenstand. The work was the centerpiece of the gallery's Frieze New York 2017 presentation. The museum selected the work during the opening hours of the fair. It depicts the changing position of the sun and seasons as viewed from within a small chapel in San Juan de Busa, Spain. Established in 1862, the Albright-Knox Art Gallery holds one of the finest collections of Modern and Contemporary Art. Collecting significant works by living artists is fundamental to the Albright-Knox's mission. A major thanks to the museum and congratulations to Schulz-Dornburg! #ursulaschulzdornburg#friezenewyork#friezespotlight#friezeny@friezeartfair
Repost from @natgeo, a photo by Simon Norfolk: "101 years ago today...1 July 1916: the first day of the Battle of the Somme...This battle was fought by the armies of the British and French against the German Empire. The first day of the Somme was, in terms of casualties, also the worst day in the history of the British army, which suffered 57,470 casualties." #ww1#somme

Gallery Luisotti is pleased to announce the upcoming exhibition John Divola: Physical Evidence. Divola, whose series Abandoned Paintings (2007–08) was featured in the 2017 Whitney Biennial, is known for his visual exploration of abandonment and ruin in the Southern California landscape, and often with a sense of humor bordering on pathos. Physical Evidence will feature two bodies of work, Untitled 1990 (1990) and the Five Prints Portfolio (1987), that may (at first) seem distant from the concerns of his more recent work. However, these two rarely exhibited bodies of work show Divola’s long held commitment to exploring the contradictions of a medium caught between document and artifice. The exhibition is on view from June 17–September 9. The artist's reception is August 5, 6–8 pm. #johndivola@divola
Home—So Different, So Appealing opens tomorrow at LACMA. On view in the exhibition is Christina Fernandez's installation Maria's Great Expedition. This exhibition is the first of the Getty-sponsored Pacific Standard Time: LA/LA exhibitions to open.
That's a wrap. Frieze New York was a total success with record attendance and dozens of people coming to know Ursula Schulz-Dornburg's remarkable life and photographs for the first time. Responses to her installations were enthusiastic and we are delighted to have had the opportunity to put them on. Looking forward to continuing conversations surrounding her work.

@newyorkermag notes our Ursula Schulz-Dornburg presentation as one of the highlights of the fair: "At Gallery Luisotti, out of L.A., I discovered the brilliant septuagenarian German photographer Ursula Schulz-Dornburg, whose images of Armenian bus shelters inject a wit and humanism into the conceptual approach to vernacular architecture pioneered by her better-known peers, Bernd and Hilla Becher."
