The Picture Show

If you are in the Brooklyn area please check out this amazing exhibition curated by Claudia Eve Beauchesne!


The Picture Show, a photography exhibition celebrating film making, the movie going experience, and the enduring influence of cinema on artists, will be on view from June 29th to August 24th, 2012 in the lobby of the Brooklyn Heights Cinema. The exhibition pays homage to The Real Estate Show (1980) and The Times Square Show (1981), two large-scale group exhibitions that critiqued the systems of power articulated by the control of property while embracing the romance of decay. In the spirit of those shows, whose position outside the gallery system was as much a presence in the exhibition as the work itself, The Picture Show will take place in the lobby of the Brooklyn Heights Cinema, which will be demolished in the coming months to make way for a residential complex.

Opening reception (with beer provided by Brooklyn Brewery): June 29, 6-9 pm

Participating artists: Jon F. Allen, Julien Archambault, Elizabeth Bick, James Blucher, Marcel Castenmiller, Paul D’Agostino, Dean Dempsey, Jon Feinstein, Christopher Gorski, Gabrielle Lamontagne, Alice Lancaster, Andrew Landauro, Michael Markos, Malachi Matcho, Grace Miceli, Dexter Miranda, Austin Nelson, Mike Olenick, Mike Rollo, Margaret Shannon, Steven Siegel, Bill Sullivan, Synchrodogs, Rick Trembles, Carmen Von K, Wet Lamp (Lauren Nickou and Adam Bach), Ruvan Wijesooriya.
