@ApertureFnd reviews ‘African Spirits’ describing the exhibition as an “astutely and carefully crafted panoply.” In their commentary, writer Imani Noelle Ford draws diverse connections across the array of “decidedly adorned and decisively posed” subjects, underscoring the “exhibition’s impulse toward quotidian delights.” On @muholizanele and @mahapemorgan’s interpretations in Zulu beadwork of self-portraits from Muholi’s series #SomnyamaNgonyama (#HailtheDarkLioness), Ford offers how the new beaded works employ “a plethora of cultural artifacts and practices, suggesting that paint and print are no longer enough to communicate the fabulosity and complexity of the Black subject.” @DelphineDiallo, they note, “gives the show a pop of color…with a portrait of a femme, embodying queer femininity and queer masculinity.” 🌍 One more week until #AfricanSpiritsYMG closes on August 23. 1. #DelphineDiallo. “Afropunk – Pink Fur” (2016). 2. #MohamedBourouissa. “La fenetre” (2005). 3.

Pieter Hugo’s new series ‘La Cucaracha’ will have its North American premiere in the gallery’s line-up for the 2020 season. This latest body of work is the result of his travels to Mexico over the last two years between Mexico City, the desert of Hermosillo and the mountainous regions of Ixtepec and San Cristóbal. ‘La Cucaracha’ represents among his first series taken outside of the African continent. #PieterHugo 🦎🇲🇽 *** Above image: “The Wedding Gift” (2018) depicts a young bride posed in her wedding gown in possession of a large iguana. Iguanas have long been associated with vitality in Mexico, whether as a source of food, a symbol of patience and empathy, or as the eponymous creatures of a lively Mexican folk dance. Much like their human Zapotec counterparts, female iguanas reign over large territories while male iguanas vie for their attention.

Matthew Brandt’s ‘Silver’ series features images of trees at night produced as large-scale gelatin silver prints then treated with liquid silver and mounted on aluminum frames, recreating in a series of unique works his own personal experience of rapture at the natural world. *** “I got lost in a forest in Idyllwild, California. It was kind of scary at first but there was something very sublime about it,” Brandt explains. “I had a moment of reflection, and my problems and worries seemed a little insignificant next to these ancient trees that had endured so long. It was a strange experience that I wanted to capture.” -#MatthewBrandt On view @NewarkMuseum’s ‘Rocks and Eagles: Matthew Brandt’ through 2020. @phatbrandt #RocksandEagles

@timeoutnewyork lists ‘AFRICAN SPIRITS’ as one of New York’s Top 5 destinations for art this week. Critic Howard Halle describes how mid-century commercial photographers in the show “employed minimal sets to maximal advantage,” creating a visual impact that allowed studio photography to develop into an artistic genre “well beyond the prosaic task of capturing a subject’s likeness.” To the read full text, visit #TimeOutNewYork’s website. Closing August 23. #AfricanSpiritsYMG *** Malick Sidibé (1935-2016) was known for his celebrated black-and-white photographs presenting the youth culture in his hometown of Bamako on a global stage. While the names and biographies of many of his sitters have been lost, their individual aspirations and charismatic personas are preserved in signature portraits by the artist. Sidibé was awarded a Golden Lion for Lifetime Achievement in 2007 at the 52nd Venice Biennale. Image: “Jeune homme avec pattes d'éléphant, sacoche et montre” (1977) by #MalickSidibé

#CollectorDaily’s Loring Knoblauch reviews ‘AFRICAN SPIRITS’ as a “nuanced two-stage examination of African portraiture,” where enlarged modern works and rare vintage prints jointly provide a “sophisticated historical context for all of the work on view.” Fake flowers, soda cans, and patterned backdrops are arresting visual motifs found across both past and contemporary works, forming a “persuasive argument for deeply rooted photographic thinking, where ideas are constantly being recycled and reworked for a new age.” To read the full review, please visit the Collector Daily website.

From mid-century black-and-white studio photographs taken by #MalickSidibé to contemporary chromogenic works by French-Senegalese portraitist #DelphineDiallo, Heinrich describes how each portrait on view exudes “a powerful attention to presence — the camera’s as well as the subject’s — and a keen awareness that a person’s identity really only begins when it’s performed for someone else.” To read the full review, click the link in bio.🌍 On view until August 23. #CriticsPick #YossiMiloGallery #AfricanSpiritsYMG

OPENING TONIGHT ‘AFRICAN SPIRITS’| Mohamed Bourouissa’s photographs from the series “Périphéries” are staged depictions of the tensions and issues affecting daily life for young people living in the suburbs of France. The imagined scenarios are orchestrated in carefully scouted locations and combine documentary-style journalistic content with formal compositions influenced by canonical paintings, such as those by Delacroix and Gericault. Above: “La fenêtre” (2005) *** Since the 1920s, boxing shaped and gave rise throughout West Africa to new ideas of masculinity and of ethnic and national consciousness, with boxers appearing as popular subjects in studio photographs across the region. In the post-independence era, a generation of youth saw their unleashed energy and creativity reflected in the defiant stances and strong postures, combining the ethos of black pride with the energy of rock n’ roll. *** We hope to see you tonight at our exhibition, rain or shine! 🥊🥊🥊🥊 1. #MohamedBourouissa. “La fenêtre” (2005) 2. #FelicienRodriguez.

‘AFRICAN SPIRITS’ will open with a public reception on THURSDAY, JULY 11, 5:30 – 7:30 PM. Featuring works by nearly two dozen artists on the long-standing theme of studio photography within African photographic history and contemporary art. *** Among iconic works by celebrated names as well as a group of artists receiving later appraisal, rarely seen unique vintage works will be on view by the founder of #StudioDegbava, Stephane Nuvi-Tûvi (1939 - 2013, Togo). Nuvi-Tûvi apprenticed under Clément Fumey (founder of Studio Edekpe), and both photographers maintained successful studio practices in the capital city of Lomé.

The LGBTQ Pride Flag, originally devised by San Francisco artist Gilbert Baker in 1978, is a symbol of the gay liberation movement. It has been suggested that Baker may have been inspired by Judy Garland's singing "Over the Rainbow" and the Stonewall riots that happened a few days after Garland's death. A harassed minority group was eventually pushed up from the underground and into social consciousness with shadowed lives exchanged for radical visibility enabled by allyship and collective activism, as visualized by Baker in the flag’s united colorbands. We celebrate #WorldPride and the 50th-anniversary of the #Stonewall Riots by raising the flag for the colorful group of people who in 1969 galvanized the gay rights movement and brought us to where we are today. More to be done! 🌍🏳️‍🌈🌈

Kohei Yoshiyuki: ‘The Park’, a newly designed book jointly published by Radius Books and Yossi Milo, will mark the fortieth anniversary of the series and include eight images from a never-before seen body of work, ‘Remote Islands’, depicting amorous young couples on the volcanic islands of Nii-jima and Shikine-jima. Documentation of ‘Document Koen’, Yoshiyuki’s iconic 1980 photobook, will also be featured in facsimile reproductions. Authors include Vince Aletti, Nobuyoshi Araki and an introduction by Yossi Milo. 🌃 #KoheiYoshiyuki @radiusbooks *** FROM THE INTRODUCTION: “’The Park’ is a unique and inimitable contribution to the annals of Japanese postwar photography, capturing that brief, weird liminal period of the country’s history, its awkward adolescence between the bleak sixties, a decade of loss and defeat, and the eighties, when Japan once again seemed on the verge of ruling the world. Yoshiyuki reveals a hidden city at night, where inside the folds of darkness couples and groups are released from life’s constraints. Clandestine gatherings, onlookers hiding in the bushes, lovers, and those urged to participate are all caught in flagrante by his camera. To look at these photographs is to intrude upon someone else’s secret.”

Today we celebrate the work of filmmaker, writer and photographer Tim Hetherington (1970 – 2011). Hetherington reported on humanitarian and political issues at the highest level, helping effect a change in the news industry’s understanding of conflict reporting. On April 20, 2011, Hetherington was killed while on assignment covering the Libyan civil war. … “As anyone who has experienced it will know, war is many contradictory things. There is brutality and heroism, comedy and tragedy, friendship, hate, love and boredom. War is absurd yet fundamental, despicable yet beguiling, unfair yet with its own strange logic. Rarely are people 'back home' exposed to these contradictions — society tends only to highlight those qualities it needs, to construct its own particular narrative.” - #TimHetherington 🕊 Rest In Power @imperialwarmuseums
