Gertrude is pleased to present our first Salon with the Paula Cooper Gallery in collaboration with renowned artist Bing Wright.
Bing Wright's current exhibition at the Paula Cooper Gallery presents the series, Broken Mirror / Evening Sky in which Wright photographs a setting sun seen through broken mirrors. Incorporating color for the first time in almost a decade, Wright’s new photographs are richly luminescent. Cracked glass seemingly generates doubled reflections, disjointed gleams and refracted light into shards of images. Fragmented glass is the subject of another recent body of work on view, Broken Mirror on Mirror, which extends the artist’s engagement with depth of field, scale, surface and materiality. Bing will lead the discussion about the exhibition and answer questions about his work and contemporary photography.
Join this unique opportunity to meet and discuss with Bing as he leads a private tour through his exhibit Broken Mirror / Evening Sky before its final week at the Paula Cooper Gallery.
