Oct 3 - Nov 9, 2019
Artist led walkthrough: 2 Oct, 5-6pm, followed by PV.
Nate Lowman’s debut presentation at the gallery will feature a new series of works based on perfunctory crime scene photos of the 2017 Las Vegas shooting, in which a gunman attacked civilians attending the Route 91 Harvest Festival, resulting in fifty-nine deaths. By focusing on these images and rendering their details, his new works re-present disquietingly mundane scenes that simultaneously reveal and mask the violent context of his source imagery. They raise questions about the communicability of certain images and insist on their visibility, while probing the tensions between the everyday and the extreme, presence and absence, and, more broadly, violence and representation.
