303 Gallery: “Sam Falls”

September 12 through October 20, 2018

Opening Reception: Wednesday, September 12, from 6 to 8 p.m. 

303 Gallery presents “Sam Falls,” featuring the gallery’s first exhibition of new work by the artist.

Sam Falls is most known for working with the core concepts of photography such as time and exposure, engaging the viewer not only in representation but also experience. In creating the works included in the show, Falls brought large canvas and pigments into American National Parks and left them to expose to the elements. The works are large scale in the gallery, while small in scale in nature. Falls has had numerous solo and group shows in recent years including the Hammer Museum, LA; International Center of Photography, NY; and Public Art Fund, NY to name a few.

303 Gallery is located at 555 W 21st St, New York, NY 10011. www.303gallery.com.

Marking the artist’s seventh show with the gallery, the exhibition will feature 12 sculpture works, sketches, and drawings, including both new and historic work. Originally begun in the 1960s, Estructuras was abandoned in 1971 due to the passing of the artist’s carpenter and lack of funding. The exhibition will include a rare early blue Estructura created in 1971, among newly painted aluminum structures. Herrera is a Cuban-American abstract painter best known for her minimalism, simplicity and color.

Lisson Gallery is located at 504 W 24th St, New York, NY 10011. www.lissongallery.com.
