Assaf Shaham included in group show at Yossi Milo
Painting with Light
January 17 – February 23, 2019
Yossi Milo Gallery is pleased to present Painting with Light, a group exhibition featuring abstract, process-driven photographs as varied in appearance, process and meaning as photography’s more traditional forms of production. In the hands of this group of artists, the medium is reduced to its most essential and variable element: the reaction of a given surface to the presence of light. Freed from its role as indexical record-keeper, photographs made by alternative means, often without a camera, transform into records of their own production.
Painting with Light includes works by Marco Breuer, Christopher Bucklow, Richard Caldicott, Harry Callahan, Ellen Carey, Luuk de Haan, Susan Derges, Jessica Eaton, Bryan Graf, Sheree Hovsepian, Gottfried Jäger, Aspen Mays, Chris McCaw, Gjon Mili, Liz Nielsen, Lisa Oppenheim, Hanno Otten, Alison Rossiter, Tokihiro Sato, Assaf Shaham, Hiroshi Sugimoto, Tenesh Webber and James Welling, among others. The exhibition runs concurrently with Karl Martin Holzhäuser’s first solo exhibition at the gallery, Lichtmalerei, situating the rigorous experiments performed in his dark room in the 1980s in dialogue with a cross-section of contemporary works.
