Event Description

GALLERY@DNA PRESENTS:

Quinn Batson

"Longone"

May 18 - June 14, 2009

Dance New Amsterdam is pleased to present photography by Quinn Batson, independent photographer and Dance Editor of offoffoff.com. Batson's work will be exhibited May 18-June 14 in DNA's 2nd Floor Gallery at 280 Broadway (entrance at 53 Chambers). This Exhibit has been funded in part by a grant from New York State Assemblymember Deborah J. Glick through the NYS Office of Parks, Recreation and Historic Preservation.

Inspired by near-lifesize, near-photorealistic black and white Robert Longo paintings from the 1980s, the images capture explosions of energy in men in suits and women in dresses and heels. Printed large in black and white on a silver paper, the images have more richness than the graphic silhouetted figures of the paintings while recreating much of the energy and angst, and anonymity, of the inspiration.


An opening reception will be held at DNA on Thursday, May 21st from 7:00pm-9:00pm.

A closing reception will be held at DNA on Wednesday June 10th from 7:00-8:00pm.

DNA's Gallery Hours are 9am - 9pm Monday - Sunday

There is no charge for admission to the exhibit.


Artist Statement:
I wanted to find a photographic place between dance and action and between technique and energy, to get away from the typical impressive jumping shots or synchronized groups we often see as dance images.

All the people in these pictures are excellent dancers and movers, and though they may look like civilians by the way they are dressed, very few non-dancers would have the physical presence and force to do what they did for these photos. - Quinn Batson
