Ceres Gallery New York had opening reception Out and Out, a group exhibition on view January 8th, 2015. Curated by Pauline Chernichaw, the show brings together six visual artists, Trix Rosen, Ellen Denuto, Heidi Sussman, Alice Jacob, Masayo Nishimura, and Pauline Chernichaw working in art photography today. The exhibition presents exploration of individual and communal identity transfigured within the framework of public and private spaces.

Trix Rosen’s evocative photographs examine individual identity and gender ambiguity pressing beyond the public and private parameters of self-liberation. Heidi Sussman’s riveting images depict subjects, whose identities are not observantly and clearly delineated, compelling the viewer to take a closer look.

Masayo Nishimura photographs portray people traversing Tokyo Japan’s open cityscapes. Her sequential series of photographs, “The Crossing at Noon”, are checkered with pedestrians scattered and on a scramble crossing busy business streets seemingly unaware of one another’s presence.
