“First presented in 2011, carriage trade's Social Photography exhibitions have become both a tradition and an ongoing survey of cell phone camera use. What began as a novelty medium seven or eight years ago now provides currency for the $100 billion picture mill of Instagram, which funnels 95 million images a day through its social media network via opaque algorithms that determine the order and context of what we see.

Unlike social media formats on our phones which encourage endless scrolling through a "bottomless bowl" of images, Social Photography cell phone pictures exist both online and in the gallery. Faced with a group of photographs in the exhibition space, any of which can draw one's attention or focus, accidental associations present themselves through proximity (their order is based on when images are emailed to the gallery) underscoring the alternative of seeing cell phone images in a physical setting free of social media filters.”

SPINE:

curated by Suzanne McClelland and Leeza Meksin
October 20 - December 9, 2018

SPINE is a group exhibition curated by artist Suzanne McClelland and OyG Co-Director and artist Leeza Meksin, featuring works by Cati Bestard, Lisa Blas, Sonia Louise Davis, Shoshana Dentz, Anne Eastman, Jenny Monick and Anne Vieux.
 

SPINE explores the mental and physical structures of a book and questions what is legible, optical, physical, emotional or cerebral. Reading is viewing and occurs any time anyone engages with visual art but it also happens when we’re handling and engaging with books as objects. Printed media lives in the realm of the physical and the private with a spine functioning as an interruption, an intersection, a fulcrum and a central structure, often simultaneously. The works presented in this exhibition question what is shared when the private act of reading becomes public.
