Alejandra Laviada, "New Vision/New Generation" at Julie Saul Gallery

In the upcoming December exhibition, New Vision/ New Generation, at Julie Saul Gallery, well-known masters of photography will be paired with two emerging artists who have been inspired by their practice. In effect, exploring the continuing influence and traces of the past on the present.

Featured in this exhibition is alumni, Alejandra Laviada (b.1980). While based in Mexico, her Geometry of Space series creates deep dark spaces that resemble the structure and mystery of her pairee's, László Moholy-Nagy, photograms. Here, she uses discarded building materials that are multiply exposed in camera to form powerful abstract compositions. She embraces Moholy’s credo, as expressed in his 1923 publication Painting Photography Film, that each work must find its medium- in this case abstract photography.

Also included in the exhibition is italian photographer Luigi Ghirri (1943-1992) and East German born artist Andrea Grützner (b.1984).

The exhibition opens December 2nd and will run through Feb. 3rd, 2018.
