The gallery is proud to announce that Ron Jude has been awarded a John Simon Guggenheim Memorial Foundation Fellowship, an honor that recognizes "exceptional capacity for productive scholarship or exceptional creative ability in the arts." Congratulations to the artist! Ron Jude, born in Los Angeles in 1965 and raised in rural Idaho, lives and works in Eugene, Oregon, where he is a professor of art at the University of Oregon. For the past twelve years, his work has consistently explored the nexus between place, memory and narrative through multiple forms and approaches, ranging from appropriated imagery to photographs that echo traditional documentary strategies. Jude earned a BFA in studio art from Boise State University in 1988, followed by an MFA from Louisiana State University, Baton Rouge in 1992. His photographs have been exhibited widely since 1992 at venues such as the J. Paul Getty Museum (Los Angeles), The Photographers’ Gallery (London), Daugeu Cultural Center (South Korea), Proekt_Fabrika (Moscow) and Museum of Contemporary Photography (Chicago). Jude is the co-founder of A-Jump Books and the author of ten books, including Alpine Star (A-Jump Books), Emmett (The Ice Plant), Executive Model (Libraryman), Lick Creek Line (MACK) and Lago (MACK). In his newest work, Jude is preoccupied with imperceptible forces, from plate tectonics to the ocean tides, from cycles of growth and decay in the forest, to the incomprehensibility of geological spans of time. His latest photographs allude to the ungraspable scale and veiled mechanics of these phenomena, while acknowledging a desire to gain a broader perspective, beyond the human enterprise, in a time of ecological and political crisis. @ronjude #ronjude #guggenheimfellowship

Opening Saturday, April 13 from 6–8 pm. Gallery Luisotti is pleased to present Shroud, an exhibition of Simon Norfolk’s recent photography. Made in collaboration with Klaus Thymann of Project Pressure, “a charity with a mission to visualize climate change,” Norfolk’s new photographs depict efforts to enshroud and save part of the Rhône Glacier in Switzerland. Known as a tourist attraction, and featuring a man-made ice grotto, the glacier has been covered in blankets to forestall further melting. Norfolk and Thymann collaborated on a unique helium balloon to light the glacier’s covering, resulting in images that evoke the iconography of lamentation as a means to represent climate change. Addressing the photographs in Shroud, Norfolk has stated: We [Norfolk and Klaus Thymann] made the on the Rhône Glacier in southern Switzerland, which is disappearing at a colossal rate. Because there is a small shop there that carves an ice grotto into the glacier and charges tourists to experience inside the blue ice, it has been worth their money attempting [to] stop the glacier’s retreat. [The Carlen family] have invested in a special thermal blanket that has kept about 25m (in depth) of ice from disappearing and has kept the ice grotto in business… There is something insane about trying to reverse the inevitable… The gesture is as forlorn and doomed as the glacier itself. Central to the photographs in Shroud is the thermal blanket covering the ice. Rather than photographing the inside of the grotto, Norfolk focuses on the exterior: the thermal blanket itself. Lit from above, there is a strong effect of chiaroscuro and drama. The surface of the blanket overlays and at times blends with the surface of the glacier, evoking marble sculpture of the Baroque period. The shroud appears as an oversized veil, preserving a life that is quickly disappearing. #simonnorfolk #simonnorfolkstudio

Catherine Wagner Paradox Observed San Jose Museum of Art April 5–August 18, 2019 Catherine Wagner (born 1953, San Francisco) has an analytic eye—an impulse to examine and organize information. Like a scientific researcher, she imposes order on a chaotic world. Photographing within institutions of learning—classrooms, laboratories, and museums and archives—she isolates and reclassifies objects, abstracting them from their original meaning. This exhibition presents Wagner’s monumental installation Pomegranate Wall (2000) in SJMA’s permanent collection, the glowing 8-by-40-foot arc of photographs taken with an MRI machine and made during an artist residency fellowship at the Museum. Shown with black-and-white photographs of plant and animal matter from Wagner’s visual investigation of science laboratories, the immersive installation explores life from the inside out. Wagner’s interest in science began in the classroom, not her own, but while traveling to schools across the country where she photographed lecture halls, biology labs, and classrooms. For Wagner, these sites of learning embody society’s aspirations and values; blackboards, science experiments, and empty desks possess the markings of human inquiry and the highly structured systems through which knowledge is developed and conveyed. For her later series “Art & Science: Investigating Matter,” Wagner gained access to professional laboratories where the artist’s photographic documentation acts as a counterpart to scientific research, focusing on its tools and methods of analysis through compositional use of isolation, classification, and sequence. @catherine_wagner_studio #catherinewagner

Opening tomorrow in Düsseldorf - Joachim Brohm and Alec Soth: Two Rivers. The exhibition focuses on Alec Soth’s series Sleeping by the Missisippi and Joachim Brohm’s Ruhr series, which both portray people on the periphery of a river. Brohm, who studied at the Folkwang Hochschule, is a visual artist who expresses himself through the medium of photography. Soth is a lyrical documentary photographer in the tradition of Robert Frank, Stephen Shore, and Joel Sternfeld. What unites the two is a documentary-artistic view that identifies them as sensitive documentarists of their social environment. The exhibition brings together a total of ten groups of works by the two photographers. In addition to the well-known series on the Ruhr and the Mississippi, rare portraits by Joachim Brohm and a new work by Alec Soth will also be shown for the first time worldwide. Joachim Brohm is a visual artist who expresses himself through the medium of photography and who has been instrumental in the development of photography as an art form since the 1980s. In his first, internationally acclaimed series Ruhr (1980–1983), he documented the leisure activities of people on the river banks of the Ruhr. Alongside the photographers from the Düsseldorf School of Photography, Brohm is one of the most important photographic artists in Germany. In his mostly documentary works, he primarily explores the structures of urban development and periphery—with all their social, sociological, economic, and cultural implications. He was artistically educated and influenced at the Folkwang Hochschule in the tradition of Otto Steinert and Michael Schmidt, but also through his Fulbright Scholarship at Ohio State University, where he studied photography under Allan Sekula. #joachimbrohm #alecsoth

Mark Ruwedel: Westward the Course of Empire opens tomorrow at the California Historical Society in San Francisco. In his series Westward the Course of Empire (1994–2008), photographer Mark Ruwedel (born 1954) documents the physical traces of abandoned or never completed railroads throughout the American and Canadian West. Built in the name of progress as early as one hundred and fifty years ago, these now defunct rail lines are marked by visible alterations to the landscape. Ruwedel catalogues eroding cuts, disconnected wooden trestles, decaying tunnels, and lonely water towers in quietly powerful images that point to the contest between technology and the natural world. Using a large-format view camera, Ruwedel treads the same territory as nineteenth century survey photographers, but his contemporary perspective brings a sense of loss to landscapes once viewed as exploitable resources. @californiahistoricalsociety #markruwedel

Now Representing Peter Holzhauer Gallery Luisotti is pleased to announce its representation of Peter Holzhauer (b. Portland, OR, 1978). Holzhauer studied at the Art Institute of Boston (BFA, 2004) and the University of California, Los Angeles (MFA, 2007). His work has been widely exhibited and has been collected by the Hammer Museum, Los Angeles County Museum of Art, Museo Jumex, among others. We look forward to presenting his first solo show in 2020. The artist currently lives and works in Los Angeles. While working as a sternman on a lobster boat in Maine, Peter Holzhauer discovered a book collection that had been donated to the town library by the photographer and filmmaker, Ralph Steiner. This encounter prompted Holzhauer to shift away from producing calendar and postcard type scenic pictures of raw nature and to begin a sustained investigation of urban spaces with a large format camera. His early output, including Los Angeles Class (2005-2007), made while he was a student of James Welling at UCLA, shows a rigorous attentiveness to the potential of “straight” or un-manipulated photography. However, Holzhauer’s work also evinces a reaction against prevailing ideals of 1970s landscape photography by his insistence on not employing repetition or the traditional notion of photographic series that is typically associated with this period. This is even clearer in his project, The Marine Layer (2005-2010), where pictures made in his hometown in Maine are juxtaposed with still lives and urban scenes from Los Angeles. Holzhauer remains transfixed by how photography can morph the world into new and unknown facts in spite of the intentions of the camera operator. Holzhauer’s recent work includes both still images and video depicting the fishing industry in coastal Maine; images of people working and views of contemporary life in Los Angeles; and photographs of remote landscapes in Iceland.

Mapping Space: Recent Acquisitions in Focus, now on view at the J. Paul Getty Museum, features a selection of recently acquired works by artists whose photographic views have been informed by new ways of thinking about a familiar subject. Mark Ruwedel’s We All Loved Ruscha (15 Apts.) (2011-2012) is deeply informed by the legacy of Conceptual Art. In returning to the urban and suburban locations of the apartment buildings originally captured by the artist Ed Ruscha (American b. 1937) almost 50 years earlier and published in the 1965 book Some Los Angeles Apartments—photographs from this publication are well represented in the Getty’s collection—Ruwedel pays homage to a project that is widely associated with defining the tone of West Coast Conceptual photography. Displaying the same deadpan approach that became a hallmark of Ruscha’s style, these photographs are also documents of the changes these buildings have undergone. #markruwedel
