What are photographs today? It merely took a decade to revolutionize in fundamental ways how the world looked at and did photography for over half a century, profoundly transforming the medium’s visual culture and its disputed claim as an art form.

Enter the brave new world of Instagram publishing, hypermedia presence and unending social media sharing: what does being a photographer truthfully mean now? What essential parameters should one consider in order to legitimate someone taking pictures as such? Or couldn’t it all rather have to see with the actual making of photographs, that one enduring defining act of photography? Even so, hasn’t the nature of photographs itself changed forever?

Who else but Stephen Shore, a most seminal figure of color photography and a noted early adopter of digital technology, to circumnavigate the muddled waters of our photographic moment? Take part in a once in a lifetime conversation as he lays out the extent of his 45-year understanding of the medium and draws clarification from his many groundbreaking books, paying particular attention to The Nature of Photographs, the precious offspring of his extensive academic career at Bard College.

Throughout this seminar participants will also have the opportunity to contribute a number of individual questions correlating their work and practice to the ongoing discussion.

All applications must be received by Sunday, September 15, 2019 at Midnight PST.

Forthcoming | 11/19/2019

Stephen Shore: Elements is inspired by the Eakins Press Foundation’s celebrated debut publication, Walker Evans’ Message from the Interior(1966), gathering images from across Evans’ career. As with that book, the photographs of Stephen Shore (born 1947) have been carefully selected to represent the poetry of his approach to the world through photographs. The 24 images (16 color and 8 black and white), from the last of his work with the 8×10″ view camera, range in location from New York’s Hudson Valley to the Yucatan, Italy, Texas, Israel and Scotland. As the book’s title suggests, what connects these photographs are the elemental resonances of the earth, humanity and time.

This title is not yet published in the U.S., but has a current release date of November 19, 2019. To pre-order or receive notice when the book is available, please email orders @

303 Gallery

Anniversary publication & exhibition celebrating 35 years of 303 Gallery

July 18 – August 16, 2019

303 Gallery: 35 Years is a new hardcover publication chronicling the story of the gallery from its founding in 1984 through its history creating and mirroring developments in the New York and international art worlds, forming a portrait of the gallery as it stands in the present day. Edited by Kurt Brondo, designed by Common Name, and published by 303inPrint under the direction of Fabiola Alondra, the limited edition 448-page book is a culmination of years of research, collation, and unearthing of the gallery’s archives in an attempt to construct a complete history. Documentation of early group shows, guest curatorial projects and provocations illustrate the collaborative nature of the program, where now-seminal artists, curators, gallerists, and writers exchanged ideas and roles in New York’s fertile ’80s heyday. It was a time where it would not be unusual for 303 Gallery’s neighbor (American Fine Arts) to share a solo exhibition by an artist under a pseudonym (Richard Prince / John Dogg), or where 303 Gallery would host a group show for a like-minded but entirely separate gallery under both of their names (AC Project Room at 303 Gallery).
Texts from artists including Richard Prince, Collier Schorr, Karen Kilimnik, Kim Gordon, Mary Heilmann, Sue Williams, Rodney Graham, Doug Aitken, Nick Mauss and Alicja Kwade, among other important contributions, offer intimate and historically significant accounts of how 303 Gallery began, how it has progressed, and what it has meant to them.
A group exhibition of the same title accompanies the publication, with a selection of ephemera featured in the book alongside works that draw from the gallery’s rich history and current program. Iconic works foregrounding the long relationships of many artists continuing to show with the gallery are exhibited here in conversation with recent works by artists who are newer additions to the roster. The show speaks to the continual evolution of the program over the years, creating a picture of what 303 Gallery has been, what it currently represents, and where it is headed.

Wednesday, June 19, at 7 pm.
Sprüth Magers
5900 Wilshire Boulevard, Los Angeles.

On the occasion of Eric Fischl’s first local gallery exhibition of new paintings in twenty-five years and Stephen Shore’s first Los Angeles show in nearly fifteen, Sprüth Magers presents the artists in conversation with LACMA curator Britt Salvesen. Fischl and Shore are two of the most celebrated American artists to have emerged in the later twentieth century. Each has respectively altered the language of painting and photography through their groundbreaking approaches to composition, color, light and texture. Their imagery has left an indelible mark not only on subsequent generations of artists, but also on the way we understand the physical and metaphorical peaks and valleys of the American experience. Fischl often builds his scenes using photographic elements, and the structures of Shore’s compositions have sometimes been articulated through the lens of painting, despite the mediums’ obvious differences. The artists will discuss their individual approaches in a wide-ranging conversation led by Britt Salvesen.

On view at Sprüth Magers, Los Angeles will be three of the artist’s photographic series spanning the years 1969 to the present, each of which reveal his ability to project an approachable, casual aesthetic that is infused nonetheless with subtlety, complexity, and a quiet, affecting power.

Opening Reception:
Thursday, June 20
6:00-8:00 p.m

NEW YORK—Last winter the legendary photographer Stephen Shore received an unusual request from Howard Greenberg Gallery: Would he be interested in curating an exhibition that included his students from the renowned photography program at Bard College? The answer was, “yes,” and the resulting collaboration, Bard x HGG, pairs work by seven of Shore’s recent graduates with photographs by historic 20th century artists from the Gallery’s vast archives.

“Stephen Shore is a bridge connecting contemporary photography with the history of photography,” said Howard Greenberg. “As a contemporary figure and an important part of photo history, he is in a unique position to be able to connect a new generation of photographers and viewers.”

“I think of myself as both a photographer and a teacher and am delighted to have this opportunity to show my student’s work,” said Stephen Shore, Program Director & Susan Weber Professor in the Arts at Bard College. “Each of the recent graduates (from 2017 and 2018) is represented by a series of pictures so you can get a sense of their thought process and artistic practice.”

Works by the Bard graduates—Jasmine Clarke, Madison Emond, Briauna Falk, Vanessa Kotovich, Jackson Siegal, Naomi Zahler, and Ying Jing Zheng—are paired with photographs by Dave Heath, Ralph Eugene Meatyard, Lisette Model, Frederick Sommer, Stephen Shore, Joseph Sudek, and Minor White from Howard Greenberg Gallery’s extensive holdings.

American Surfaces

Chinese Edition of American Surfaces Released


《美国表象》由斯蒂芬·肖尔于1972至1973年拍摄的一系列创新照片组成,其中大部分都未经发表。这个项目将纪实摄影推向了新高度。当它首次在纽约的光线画廊(Light Gallery)展出时,肖尔穿越美国旅行的这份视觉日记让评论家们摸不着头脑。他展示的几百张彩色照片,只是在新泽西州柯达冲印店里冲洗出来的,这与当时被接纳为艺术摄影的正规黑白照片截然不同。

尽管评论并不看好这一展览,但纽约大都会艺术博物馆时任摄影策展人的韦斯顿·内夫(Weston Naef)依然买下了所有展品,这220幅照片至今仍留在大都会博物馆。自此之后,《美国表象》成了对我们的快速生活及以消费为导向的世界进行记录的基准,这一作品延续了沃克·埃文斯和罗伯特·弗兰克穿越美国的体验,并持续影响着当今的摄影师。…
