Elinor Carucci and Marvin Heiferman in "The Space Between" at Julie Saul Gallery

From March 7- April 20, the Julie Saul Gallery is pleased to present a group exhibition featuring work by MFA Photo/Video faculty members Elinor Carucci and Marvin Heiferman. "The Space Between" brings together artists across disciplines who portray the many phases of intimate relationships. "The Space Between" refers to both the physical joining of couples as well as the passage of time that unifies them or causes them to drift apart.

Through love and coupling, humans unite and become one, as depicted by many of the artists' works featured in the group show. Form and action stops at the perfect moment of union in Elinor Carucci’s close up of a man and woman as their lips almost meet.

Elinor Carucci graduated in 1995 from Bezalel Academy of Arts and Design with a degree in photography, and moved to New York that same year. In a relatively short amount of time, her work has been included in an impressive amount of solo and group exhibitions worldwide, solo shows include Edwynn Houk gallery, Fifty One Fine Art Gallery, James Hyman and Gagosian Gallery, London among others and group show include The Museum of Modern Art New York and The Photographers' Gallery, London.

Her photographs are included in the collections of The Museum of Modern Art New York, the Brooklyn Museum of Art, Houston Museum of Fine Art, among others and her work appeared in The New York Times Magazine, The New Yorker, Details, New York Magazine, W, Aperture, ARTnews and many more publications.

Writer Marvin Heiferman doesn't consider himself an artist outright; however, his passion for photography and keen eye has resulted in many photographs being captured and shared through social media. Heiferman, aka “@whywelook” zooms in on the outline of a man and woman on the subway on his daily commute; combining body language, a tattoo and patterned dress to suggest intimacy.

In addition to being a contributing editor to Art in America, Heiferman has written for numerous museums, galleries, publications, catalogs, blogs, and magazines including The New York Times, Gagosian Gallery, CNN, Artforum, Design Observer, Aperture, and BOMB. Heiferman is the author, editor, and packager of over two dozen books on photography and visual culture, including Photography Changes Everything (Aperture, 2012).

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.
