  7. Autumn Gallery Hopping

    School is back in session and starting today so are our beloved Chelsea galleries. To kick off the fall gallery season we are heading straight to Mitchel-Innes & Nash’s Chelsea location to see Justine Kurland’s (American, 1969) new show, Sincere Auto Care. This will be her third solo exhibition with the gallery. Kurland is best known for her romantic portraits of the American landscape and her approach to landscape photography is wholly her own. In essence, Kurland is a storyteller. She is intrigued by the relationship between the people that inhabit the forgotten parts of the American landscape and the landscape itself. She uses these two interests to create a pictorial narrative that is specific to the landscape she is depicting. By staging her works, she is able to bring together both the real and the imagined to create a world that mythologizes the American terrain. In this latest body of work, Kurland turns to the subject of cars and the culture surrounding cars.

    This is a new type of landscape for Kurland. In a real way, she has scaled down the focus of her lens to capture all of the minutiae of the car culture. True to her storytelling gift, she has constructed a world that explores all of the symbolism connected to cars while still highlighting the grittier details of this microcosm. As always, there is a balance between the real and the imagined in her work. This exhibition is presented alongside, Days Inn, a special show curated by Kurland. It is on view at Mitchel-Innes & Nash’s Madison Ave location and will run simultaneously with Sincere Auto Care. The title of the show derives its name from a sign for a motel that Kurland and her son spotted on their travels across the country. All of the works selected for the show are signs of some sort and the show explores the significance of signs and symbols in our daily lives, as we are constantly bombarded with signage from every angle. These two complimentary shows are a perfect introduction to the fall gallery season. Be sure to go and have a look!

    We would be remiss not to mention these other great shows opening today!
