For his first solo exhibition at Marlborough Chelsea, Rashaad Newsome will debut a series of new collages, videos and installations, as well as a performance to be held on November 2nd in conjunction with Performa 11. The exhibition, entitled Herald, represents the continuation in the artists fictive quest to attain the status of King of Arms.
This exhibition will consist of eight large black and white panoramic photographs by Kenneth Snelson depicting iconic views of New York City from 1979-1980. Snelson creates startling new impressions of familiar New York landmarks by capturing in one shot far more than the human eye can absorb naturally. The flattening of a 360° view brings to light a symmetry within the streets of the city that was previously imperceptible. The fact that notoriously crowded areas, such as Times Square and the Flatiron District, are completely barren in these photographs adds to the sense of unfamiliarity that these wide-angle views evoke. To capture these stunning images, Snelson used a vintage 1917, sixteen-inch “Cirkut” camera, one of only thirty ever made.
