On View: Daniel Gordon at Pioneer Works

You can see Daniel Gordon's work in the current show at Pioneer Works, Under Construction – New Positions in American Photography, a collaboration with FOAM (Fotografiemuseum Amsterdam). Included in the show is the title piece from Shadows and Pears, our exhibition at The Horticultural Society of New York.

The exhibition focuses on artists that are reassessing photography for our digital age, with a specific focus on those who use manipulations and interventions, whether digital or physical, to re-contextualize imagery.

In an article for Frieze on the recent development towards “constructed photography,” Aaron Schuman describes Gordon’s work as:

[...] a new vision of our contemporary visual landscape: one in which photographic representations, rather than objects themselves, are the subject of composition and contemplation; one where images have become symbiotic with, rather than symbolic of, the physical world itself.*

The exhibition, which also features works by Joshua Citarella, Jessica Eaton, Matthew Leifheit & Cynthia Talmadge, Matt Lipps, Matthew Porter, Sara Cwynar, Kate Steciw and Sara VanDerBeek, is on view through April 26.
