Urban Panoramas: Opie, Liao, Kim
February 2-June 6, 2010
Highlighting images by three living photographers-each of whom implements a panoramic viewpoint to examine a specific urban environment-this exhibition explores the essential rhythms of three cities while showing the range of technologies used by photographic artists today. Catherine Opie (American, born 1961) created digital pigment prints from 7x17-inch negatives of the mini-malls that characterize Los Angeles's automobile culture. Jeff Liao (Taiwanese, born 1977) combined color film negatives into seamless digital prints for his Habitat 7 project, which traces the route of the subway from Queens to Manhattan. By layering hand-cut chromogenic prints made in Reykjavík during the summer solstice, Soo Kim (Korean, born 1969) achieved the three-dimensional effect of a semitransparent city.
