Paz Errázuriz’s photography emerged in her native country, Chile, in the first half of the 1970s in a political context dominated by the brutality of the Pinochet dictatorship.

Her first steps were influenced by an extremely tense and uncertain social situation which affected the lives of opponents of the coup d’êtat. Going out on the street with a camera was risky for anyone aiming to capture events as they happened and was also perceived as a threat by the military regime. It was even less common to see a woman undertaking the type of investigations characteristic of photography.

In 1980 Paz Errázuriz presented her first solo exhibition, entitled Personas [People], at the Instituto Chileno-Norteamericano in Santiago. The following year she and some fellow photographers co-founded the Asociación de Fotógrafos independientes (AFI).

During that dark period, Errázuriz’s self-taught photographic gaze focused on homeless people sleeping rough, scraping a living or destitute. This series, Los dormidos [The sleepers], offers a notably unheroic vision of the country, immersed in poverty. Also at that time and throughout the 1980s, Errázuriz turned her inquisitive eye on the lifestyles of the country’s wealthy classes, who displayed their fortunes in the areas of Las Condes and La Dehesa in Santiago.

Desert Bloom – Collage and Mixed Media – 15″ x 20″


From July 31 thru August 24, 2014 – Sin City Gallery

‘A Walk on the Wild Side’ by JK Russ takes inspiration from Lou Reed’s legendary 1972 album Transformer.

The themes of fantasy, seduction, illusion and transformation explored in the eleven album tracks are reflected in Russ’ mixed media and collage works.

“Well, you know what happens after dark.
When rattlesnakes lose their skins and their hearts.
And all the missionaries lose their bark.
Oh, all the trees are calling after you.
And, all the venom snipers after you.
Are all the mountains bolder after you?”
~ Andy’s Chest by Lou Reed.

uss is originally from New Zealand where she graduated with a BVA (photography) from MIT Faculty of Creative Arts in Auckland in 2001. In August 2010, Russ relocated to Las Vegas, USA, where she has become known for her mixed media and video works, which reflect her interest in performance, gender and sexuality. Her work has been described as absorbing the awe of the desert and its sculptural rock formations and creatures, along with her observations of the sexually charged casino culture, built on fantasy and illusion.

26 March 2014 to 13 July 2014 – Grand Palais, Galerie sud-est

Robert Mapplethorpe was one of the great masters of art photography. He produced highly stylised black and white portraits, nudes and still lifes. Over and above the erotic power that made Mapplethorpe’s work famous, the exhibition presents the classic dimension of the artist’s work and his search for aesthetic perfection, through over 200 images that span his career from the early 1970s to his untimely death in 1989.

May 10, 2013–January 6, 2014 – Museum of Modern Art
This exhibition addresses photography’s influential role in contemporary art through a selection of recent major acquisitions, primarily multipart and serial works. Presented at MoMA for the first time, these works by 19 artists are grounded in diverse photographic traditions, suggesting the creative fertility of the medium from 1960 to today. They range from postwar experiments with darkroom processes (such as photograms and photomontages), to 1970s feminist performances conceived for the camera, to political and documentary engagements with labor history and globalization in the 1980s and 1990s, to forms of archival and historical reconstitution made since 2000.
The international, cross-generational group of artists includes Yto Barrada, Phil Collins,* Liz Deschenes, Stan Douglas,* VALIE EXPORT, Robert Frank, Paul Graham, Leslie Hewitt,* Birgit Jürgenssen, Jürgen Klauke, Běla Kolářová, Lynn Hershman Leeson, Dóra Maurer, Oscar Muñoz, Mariah Robertson, Allan Sekula, Stephen Shore, Taryn Simon,* and Hank Willis Thomas.*

*Works by these artists will be on view beginning August 23, 2013.
