Steel Stillman featured in exhibition at Marquee Projects

MARQUEE PROJECTS is pleased to announce By the Sea, an exhibition of photography organized by Mikael Levin who presents his work alongside that of Vera Lutter, James Welling and faculty member Steel Stillman. The show will run April 28 through May 20, 2018; with an opening reception on Friday April 28th from 5-7 pm.


The works all have the seaside in common but each in the artist’s own way treats photography’s relation to memory and time. Encompassing a variety of approaches – analog and digital, black & white and color, and still and moving images – the selection addresses the ever-evolving nature of the photographic method, as well as of our understanding of how it is used and interpreted.

Steel Stillman’s Enlargements series are blow-ups of photographs which the artist has been taking since the 1970s, using pocket-sized cameras to address scenes of intimate, everyday life. They are scanned from original drugstore prints for the most part, then cropped, enlarged, and printed over the last two years. Stillman’s Enlargements manifest a coherence that time and distance have only enhanced. The pictures in By the Sea are all digital pigment prints taken at, or close to, the ocean’s edge.
