Art Out: The Environment in Contemporary Photography at Front Room Gallery
“FR:20, Part I, The Environment in Contemporary Photography”celebrates the twentieth anniversary of the opening of Front Room Gallery in NYC. The first show of this two-part exhibition focuses on the environment and features the photographers: Sasha Bezzubov, Phillip Buehler, Jade Doskow, Sean Hemmerle, Stephen Mallon, Júlia Pontés, Ken Ragsdale, Paul Raphaelson, Ashok Sinha, Zoe Wetherall, and Edie Winograde. The diverse group of photographs from Front Room’s stable of photographers featured in this exhibition look at man’s affects on the earth in its many facets. They are not all doomsday and gloom but some acknowledge that we, as a species, might be making irrevocable changes to the environment.
We chose the environment as the topic of our anniversary exhibition as it has often been a running theme through the programming in the gallery. Aside from particular group shows, like the recent “Pattern in Landscape” exhibition curated by Kathleen Vance, many of our artists work along themes that directly or indirectly address environmental issues over the past two decades.
