Gavin Brown’s Enterprise: “LaToya Ruby Frazier”

January 14 through February 25, 2018

Opening Reception: Sunday, January 14, from 2 to 6 p.m.

"Through photographs, videos and text I use my artwork as a platform to advocate for others, the oppressed, the disenfranchised. When I encounter an individual or family facing inequality I create visibility through images and storytelling to expose the violation of their human rights." - LaToya Ruby Frazier

In her debut solo exhibition at Gavin Brown’s Enterprise, LaToya Ruby Frazier’s self-titled show will be her largest exhibition in New York to date.

LaToya Ruby Frazier, an artist and photographer who uses her platform to advocate for marginalized communities, will present three bodies of work. Frazier will present “Flint is Family (2016-2017), a series of works exploring the water crisis in Flint, Michigan and the effects on its residents during one of the most devastating man-made ecological disasters in U.S history. For the photographs, which were published in Elle magazine, Frazier spent five months with three generations of women witnessing their everyday life.

Frazier’s most well-known work “The Notion of Family (2001-2014)” will also be on display. The photographs also highlight three generations of women: Frazier’s grandmother, Frazier’s mother and Frazier herself. Exploring her family, her hometown and her own experiences, Frazier’s work engages with systemic racism, displacement, historical narrative and the aftermath of economic erosion in communities.

“A Pilgrimage to Noah Purifoy’s Desert Art Museum (2016-2017),” inspired by her journey Noah Purifoy’s Outdoor Desert Art Museum in Joshua Tree, CA highlight the way Noah Purifoy took pieces of wreckage and turned them into works of art and meditations on life. With the three bodies of work, the exhibition will show Frazier’s continuous concerns exploring the legacies of racism, inequality, economic decline, access to healthcare and environment justice in her work.

BROOKLYN

Pioneer Works: “Solid Light Works: Anthony McCall”

January 12 through March 11, 2018

Opening Reception: Friday, January 12, from 7 to 9 p.m.

In his first institutional exhibition in New York, Anthony McCall will present “Solid Light Works” at Pioneer Works.

Showing vertical installations alongside their horizontal variants for the first time, Anthony McCall will present the six colossal works in the Pioneer Works monumental main hall, which will be blacked out and immersed in haze. McCall, a seminal figure of the Expanded Cinema movement, began his “Solid Light Works” series in 1973, in which he draws on cinema, sculpture and drawing. The works blend cinema by not being static, sculpture by being occupied and explored by a moving spectator and drawing as the genesis of each installation as a two-dimensional line drawing.

Pioneer Works is located at 159 Pioneer St, Brooklyn, NY 11231. www.pioneerworks.org.
