SLIDE SHOW: Penelope Umbrico at LMAKprojects

Image

Mark Moore Gallery artist Penelope Umbrico presents her second solo exhibit with LMAKprojects in New York, now on view.

“Slide Show” features 136 Mini Film Cameras in the Smithsonian Institution History of Photography Collection With Old Style Photoshop Filter, a vitrine containing the photographs Umbrico made during her Smithsonian Artist Research Fellowship. Though once revolutionary tools, in their current state these cameras are inanimate and obsolete. Carefully tagged and archived, Umbrico’s archival pigment prints, with “Old Style” Photoshop filter appear as faded cameras entombed within the vitrine.

In dialogue with these photographs, Umbrico presents “Mountains, Moving – Slide Show,” a work from her ongoing project “Mountains, Moving.” Here, she looks to the mountain as a subject of stability in relation to the present instability of photography.

Umbrico’s “Slide Show” concentrates on a singular mountain photographed by Ansel Adams (whose intention it was to make his negatives and prints available to his students to learn by). By processing this mountain though the 526 filters of 27 smart-phone camera apps she uses, Umbrico constructs a synthetic time-lapse: everything changes, but the ghostly apparition of the mountain remains.

The exhibition runs until October 20th, 2013 at:

The Santa Barbara Museum of Art has acquired Okay Mountain‘s 2011 video work, “Instructional Video,” but also, both the Orange County Museum of Art and the Museum of Contemporary Art San Diego have acquired the last two remaining edition copies of Okay Mountain’s 2010 video “Water Water Everywhere So Let’s All Have a Drink.”  In addition, MCASD has also taken Allison Schulnik‘s 2009 animation “Forest” and her large oil painting titled “Captain,” that was featured in her last solo exhibition at Mark Moore Gallery in 2012.

Allison Schulnik again has had work acquired by a museum this year with “Mound,” her most recent animation that premiered at her 2011 solo show at ZieherSmith in New York as well as being featured in her current exhibition at the Laguna Art Museum.  The final edition copy of “Mound” has just been acquired by the Los Angeles County Museum of Art.

Also in this short period of time, David Hilliard‘s “5 Cords” has been acquired by the Portland Art Museum, and Tim Bavington‘s “Cry You A Song” has gone to the Nora Eccles Harrison Museum of Art.

All of this signals an exciting start to 2013 so far with many other museum acquisitions currently pending.
