BACKROOM SOLO by OLD MASTER OF NEW MEDIA

Jan. 12 - Feb. 17

The Mitchell Algus Gallery is pleased to announce a Backroom Solo Exhibition of Surreal to Conceptual Photo-Morphs by 'Old Master of New Media,' Barbara Rosenthal. An opening reception will be held on Saturday, January 12th from 6-8pm. The artist will also be present in the gallery to talk with visitors on Sat., Jan. 19, 4-6pm, and the show will run through February 17th.

The exhibition features a selection of six 26'x40' digitally printed, manipulated distortions of full-frame analog 35mm photographs from her ongoing series 'Surreal Photos,' hung as a contiguous installation.

In each rectangularly framed work, a single trapezoidal slice of dreamlike reality appears to thrust or twist or waft through space. Photographed in international locations, often at night, the subject matter -- a horse, a tower, a staircase, a doorway, a church, a roof, a window, a bird, a doll -- resonates with the viewer's own psychological undercurrent. Hung contiguously, with the images at different levels within the frames, they bring a musical lilt and implied narrative to the installation.

Barbara Rosenthal has been creating highly idiosyncratic photographs since 1972, and image/text/performance videos since 1976. This exhibition is part of her Seventieth Birthday International Retrospective, the other Jan-Feb events of which will take place in Helsinki at the Vuotalo Cultural Center on January 28 and the Lava Klub on January 29; in Brussels at Nadine Laboratory for Contemporary Arts on February 5; and in Berlin at the Boddinale Film Festival on February 9.

Rosenthal was born in The Bronx (1948). She was a long-time member of the Photography Department of Parsons School of Design. She also taught Video at Jersey City State College and Manhattanville College, and Writing at CUNY. Five books of her Surreal Photos and writings have been published since 1981 by Visual Studies Workshop Press and Deadly Chaps Press, and over thirty of her limited edition photo-text bookworks are in the collections of MoMA, The Whitney, The Tate, Artpool Budapest, and Berlin Kunstbibliotek.
