FRIEZE NEW YORK PREVIEW | Gallery Luisotti will present three critical series of photographs by German artist Ursula Schulz-Dornburg, born 1938 in Berlin. This will be a presentation organized in the artist’s thematic mode of hanging. She moves between clusters and lines of photographs based upon whether the project is temporally or topographically motivated.
The best-known work is her series Bus Stops (1997–2011) from Armenia. The series depicts derelict bus stops built during the late Soviet era of the 70s and 80s. Their attempts at modernist forms convey austerity but also a provincial charm. The earliest examples of this series will be on view in a compelling and dynamic arrangement. The next group from Sonnenstand (1991) tracks the movement of the sun via a sunbeam that pierces the inner sanctum of a 10th-century monastery in Busa, Spain. The last time this series was on view in the US was in the mid-90s at the Corcoran Gallery of Art and the Art Institute of Chicago. Finally, five works from 1980, Mesopotamia, Iraq, give a sense of the long-term historical formations and themes on which Schulz-Dornburg has focused. Multiple views of an ancient mounded “tell” hint at the ways history and civilization accumulate. Although her manner of display, photographs as typology, follows the style set by the Bechers in Dusseldorf, her education was grounded in the New Objectivity-inspired formalism promoted by Otto Steinert in Essen. Her two-person exhibition at Tate Modern in 2012 spurred renewed interest in her work, but it is with this presentation that an international audience can look anew in the considered context Frieze New York provides. #ursulaschulzdornburg#friezenewyork#friezespotlight#friezeny#friezeweek#frieze#friezenyc#friezeartfair@friezeartfair
Installation views of Golden State at Marianne Boesky Gallery, which includes works by Christina Fernandez and John Divola, as well as Buck Ellison, Anthony Hernandez, Catherine Opie and Larry Sultan. The exhibition is curated by Drew Sawyer and is on view through April 27. Pictured are works by Fernandez, Divola and Ellison.
Gallery Luisotti is pleased to announce Commodities, Traders, a two-person exhibition of photographs by Ron Jude and Milton Rogovin. Jude’s series of color photographs Executive Model, which depicts closely cropped views of men’s backs in formal business attire in several financial districts, is paired with Rogovin’s highly specific black and white photographs of coal miners and their families from around the world. For this unlikely presentation of artists from different generations, Rogovin’s photographs will be arranged around the main part of the gallery primarily by region and Jude’s photographs will be placed in a borderline claustrophobic line along the back wall of the gallery behind the front desk. This spatial arrangement heightens the readings of the individuals on view—visible and engaged as opposed to turned away and mysterious. The exhibition comes at a turbulent and unpredictable time in American life when the workers of shrinking industries are being made questionable promises by the president while financial markets are performing at record highs.
On view April 8 through May 26, 2017.

Frieze New York is in a little over a month! Here's a set of striking photographs that Ursula Schulz-Dornburg made of ancient mounds or "tells" in Mesopotamia. Tells are the result of settlements being built up and over each other over time. History is embedded vertically and stratified.

Howard Halle, chief art critic for @timeoutnewyork, gives the 2017 Whitney Biennial four stars and writes, "As for video and photography, both mediums have dominated previous Biennials, and they’re hardly underrepresented here. Examples of each that stuck in my mind were Anicka Yi’s filmic excursion through the Amazon in search of medicinal plants, and John Divola photos of abandoned student artworks hung in abandoned buildings. They’re poignant testimonies to thwarted dreams, not just in art, but in life."
