Best of Boston 2012: Robert Klein Gallery

Posted By Administration, Thursday, August 16, 2012
Updated: Friday, January 3, 2014

Named for the second year in a row
and a peek at the fall program: Bill Jacobson

Boston's Best of 2012 announced Robert Klein Gallery to their list of top-picks for the city. An exclusive local for over 30 years the Robert Klein Gallery was deserving of the ranking. Though tucked away on the 4th floor the gallery has international presence and was among the first to exhibit works by the now legendary Diane Arbus, Annie Leibovitz, and Sally Mann.

"Throughout the years, his unerring eye for photography's best has resulted
in a collection that rivals any in the world." - Boston Magazine.

With a legacy as this, we can be sure to continue to expect great things from the gallery.

Bill Jacobson
Place (Series)

September 15 - October 27

Echoing his early work, the Place (Series) has been in process for the past two years. The minimal and the infinite are explored in clean direct frames that place a variety of rectangles in space. The rectangles shift in size and recall building materials and paintings. At times alone, at times grouped the rectangles appear inside and out- on roadsides, forests, and parks to cool nondescript interiors. The exteriors heighten a sense of misplacement, the interiors are clean and sleek, but in all cases there is a strange joint. A dialogue continues for Jacobson with this work that his out-of-focus engaged years earlier; the space between abstract and real is revisited. The Place (Series) also raises a set of contradictions between nature and architecture as it seems to numerate the infinite materials of constructed space.
