Exhibition & Book Release: Takuma Nakahira at Yossi Milo Gallery

Posted By Administration, Wednesday, May 15, 2013
Updated: Thursday, October 31, 2013

Circulation: Date, Place, Events

Exhibition Dates: May 23 - July 12, 2013

Opening reception and book launch for Circulation: Date, Place, Events

Thursday, May 23

6:00 – 8:00 PM


Using the Seventh Paris Biennale as inspiration, Yossi Milo Gallery will present the work of Japanese artist Takuma Nakahira for the first time in the United States. Nakahira is a writer, critic, political activist, and photographer. Nakahira's project Circulation: Date, Place, Events frist exhibited in 1971 at the Seventh Paris Biennale and evolved over seven days of shooting. Each day the summ of the previous day's work was displayed without edit or omission. The nearly 100 images accumulated daily and were random glimpses of mundane subjects, views, or activities in Paris, including strangers' faces, produce stands, subway platforms, street posters, and even his breakfast setting. The resulting project presented a limited reality dictated by the guidelines of "date," "place" and "events." The images accumulated on surfaces and extended onto the floor. Nakahira's work broke with traditional visual culture in Japan. The looseness to the work, the blurry, gritty qualities of his black and white prints were in contradiction with the social realistic approach that Japanese artists had taken throughout history. Nakahira argued that it was the artist's role to creata a "new form of thought," and for him snapping pieces of reality that were only seemingly banal was his means of achieving this goal (Yossi Milo Press). Circulation: Date, Place, Events became the point of origin for what developed into Nakahira's photographic methodology.

This exhibition will include a selection of approximately 75 gelatin silver prints produced from the original 35mm black-and-white negatives.

Artist's Reception: Maekawa at Steven Kasher Gallery

Posted By Administration, Tuesday, May 14, 2013
Updated: Thursday, October 31, 2013

Exhibition Dates: June 13 - June 29

Artist's Reception:

Thursday, June 13, 2013

6:00 - 8:00 pm


Maekawa has a studied eye. Born in Tokyo in 1969 Maekawa began working under the noted Japanese photographer Tanaka Kojo in 1997 and has since developed notoriety in the field of wildlife photography. He was the recent recipient of the grand prize of the first Nikkei National Geographic Photo Prize.

Since 2000, Maekawa has traveled the globe making many stops in Japan and India, as well as locations through Asia, Africa, and North America. Maekawa's works are grounded in tradition and play homage to animal imagery in Japanese naturalist art; the photographs are dynamic and powerful; the connection between viewer and animal is immediate. Whether through the ferocity of the moment or through the gaze of the animal we connect in a primal way with Maekawa's subjects. The work instills a sense of wonder and discovery in viewers and is careful too to inspire desire in us to protect the world's rich natural heritage.

Artist's Reception: Danny Lyon at Stephen Bulger Gallery

The Bikeriders

Exhibition Dates: May 11 - June 15, 2013

Artist's Reception:

Saturday, May 11

The landmark work of Danny Lyon The Bikeriders hardly needs introduction. Not only did this work and Lyon's integration into the bikeriding gang build foundation for his working style, it put him on-track to influence his generation of artists as well as generations to come. Lyon helped articulate the sentiments of his age by giving authentic voice to subjects that may have been otherwise overlooked; his images made unapproachable subjects easier to identify with.

Early on the self-taught photographer tapped into the power of the photograph to inspire social change, and a foreshadowing of this trademark approach at integration into the subject's group fabric could be seen in his first published works taken for the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee. An outsider when the Bikerider> series began Lyon became a member of the Chicago Outlaw Motorcycle Club, traveled the roadways of the Midwest, and for four years shot from the seat of his Triumph motorcycle. The text published in conjunction with the project, pushed his career forward, and became another outlet for this and future works.

Artist's Reception: Karine Laval at Bonni Benrubi Gallery

Altered States

Exhibition Dates: April 18 - May 24, 2013

Walk through with the artist:
May 15
6:00 - 7:30pm

Opening reception with the artist
Thursday, April 18th
6:00 - 8:00 pm


Four large scale images accompanied by a video installation continue the Brooklyn-based French artists' explorations with perception. Karine Laval uses water, reflections, and the lens to bend what we see and question our visual understanding. To create the large-scale works Laval called on a professional dancer to perform in a swimming pool. This choice of subject is elegant and playful, but also becomes metaphor for man's struggle with nature and the uncertainty of the human experience. The process engages performance, a theme which also continues to be a thread in Laval's work. We find reflected, altered, and watery figures and their shadows play in these new works as we did with her Poolscapes and early Pool series. The work speaks to early avant-garde photography of the early 20th century which captured bodies in transient states and engaged themes of essence and identity. 

A series of smaller gridded images, the Collision pieces, are the hardest to pin-down. These works push and pull plane and our sense of dimension and viewpoint continues to shift, wave, and liquify. Red-toned square images portray hard to define forms of mylar in water. The works are both concrete and malleable. Our eye dances and flows over surfaces that shimmer, reflect, and dissolve. The red palate works to add tension to works that are already hard to define, and weather we find them sensual or dangerous we are caught in an intriguing and ever ambiguous visual dance.

Review: Tabitha Soren at Kopeikin Gallery

Posted By Administration, Wednesday, May 8, 2013
Updated: Monday, December 2, 2013

Through May 18, 2013

Born into a military family and virtually growing up around the globe, Tabitha Soren used photography to remember the details of her life in the places she called home. An avid image-maker Soren spent much of her childhood afternoons taking and categorizing her snapshots. She would go onto study Journalism and Politics at New york University and later develop a career in television news. When 30 frames a second became something she wanted to slow down Soren went back to study photography at stanford University. She has since neen published in the New York Times Magazine, Canteen, Vanity Fair, and New York, among others. This is Soren's first solo-exhibition at Kopeikin Gallery.


Soren's Running series engages figures caught in moments of fear.

The rush of adrenalyne courses through our veins as we see figures in flight reaction. What we don't see is what they are fleeing from; this end of the narative unanswered we are left held in a moment of panic. One would think we too would hope to escape the scene, but once locked into these charged moments we want only to linger. Weather we want to discover the source of the fear through invention or simply feel the surge of energy emitted we are caught in the moment. It is clear that Soren has spent some time considering different scenarios- some subjects flee on sidewalks or down alleyways, others hop fences, wander highways, emerge soaked from a riverbed, or are first over a ridge. There is a theatrical nature to the work that is hard to ignore. We do want answers, and to satisfy this intense desire for rational find that different situations rise easily that could answer the questions of why, what, and who.
