Stephen Shore: Uncommon Places
Feb 11, 2016 — May 07, 2016
Galerie Edwynn Houk is pleased to present an exhibition of Stephen Shore’s (b. New York, 1947) vintage color photographs from the artist’s hallmark body of work, Uncommon Places. The show marks the first solo exhibition of Shore’s work at Galerie Edwynn Houk in Zurich.
For the current exhibition, the gallery presents a selection of 15 original vintage photographs from the Uncommon Places series printed at the time of Shore’s travels in the 1970’s. Later reimagined as large-scale editions using contemporary materials and printing processes, these pristinely conserved early works demonstrate Shore’s original intention and vision through the preservation of the original paper, scale, and palette. Subsequently, each vintage print fittingly conveys an authentic atmosphere of the 1970’s, not only through Shore’s chosen imagery, but also through the object and color quality of each print.
