Gallery artist Penelope Umbrico has quite the full dance card for Fall 2014. Currently on view through October 5th at the Museum of Modern Art (NY) is “A World of Its Own: Photographic Practices in the Studio,” which examines the ways in which photographers and other artists using photography have worked and experimented within their studios, from photography’s inception to the present. Opening on September 11 (on view through November 1) is “Web on the Wall,” a group exhibition at Robert Koch Gallery (CA) in San Francisco, which will coincide with “Alterations” at the Florida Atlantic University Galleries, Boca Raton (FL) – another group exhibition that will be on view from September 19, 2014 – March, 2015. Additionally, Umbrico will also have work in the BRIC Arts Media House, Brooklyn Biennial – which will take place from September 19 – December 14, 2014, and the artist will also celebrate her monograph book launch for “Out of Order” with RVB Books (New York) at the New York Art Book Fair on September 26th, 2014.
Following her October 2nd opening at Mark Moore Gallery (which will remain on view through November 8th, 2014), is a group exhibition at XPO Gallery (Paris) that will open on October 9th, as well as the book launch for her new monograph with the Aperture Foundation, titled “Range.” The book launch event and signing will take place at Paris Photo (Paris) on November 14th, as will the opening reception for her solo exhibition and second monograph launch for “Out of Order” (featuring an essay by Clément Chéroux) at RVB Books (Paris).
Finally, to round out her European tour, Umbrico will partake in a group exhibition at Neumeitser Bar-Am (Berlin) titled “Collecting Mode” (which opens November 15th), and also participate in a presentation and panel discussion about “Landscape in Contemporary Photography: From the Sublime to the Ridiculous” at the Tate Modern (London) on November 19th, 2014.
We wish Penelope our most sincere congratulations on all of these projects and accolades, as well as a hearty dose of caffeine to get her through the end of the year.
