The Labor Day Holiday weekend is upon us heralding the coming of the new Fall Art season. After a dreary gallery summer I welcome the new season with eyes wide open.
This Fall sees many shows devoted to Japanese photographers, starting with the granddaddy of them all, Daido Moriyama at Bruce Silverstein Gallery (9/5) with a reception on September 12. I hope he shows up. Photographs by Ishiuchi Miyako will be on display at Fergus McCaffrey also opening on 9/5. Miyako Yoshinaga gallery will show, Kyrie, a new series by Mikiko Hara the celebrated photographer known for her mundane images that wonderfully tap into secret narratives. The opening and reception will be on 9/12. I believe the artist will be present at the reception. Past Presence, a series of images by Hiroshi Sugimoto that continues his examination of time and history, will be shown at Marion Goodman Gallery starting on September 10 with a reception on that same day.
Other notable exhibitions opening in the Fall (September and October) include Roy DeCarava, Light Break, at David Zwirner (9/5), Lynn Davis at Edwynnn Houk gallery (9/28), Susan Lipper at Higher Pictures (9/7). Works by Frederick Sommer at Ricco/Maresca Gallery(10/24), Duane Michals at The Morgan Library (10/25) and works by Mitch Epstein at Sikkema Jenkins and Co. opening 9/3.
All these listings and more can be found on the Photograph magazine website.
