Wednesday, October 19: Linda Troeller | Self Power / Self Play at Museum of Sex

Half a century of erotic portraiture by Linda Troeller comes to light in this solo show. Now in her 70s, DART subscriber Troeller continues to produce dynamic, provocative portraits that assert the right to control the pleasures and potentials of her own body. Since 1973, when she first took a self-portrait, Troeller has strategically utilized her photography practice to embolden female intimacy and pleasure, employing the camera as a tool for sensual empowerment.

Informed by apprenticeships with Georgia O’Keeffe, Ansel Adams, and Annie Leibovitz in the 1970s and 80s, Troeller directs her lens to the natural world, mystical waters, and the bedroom, where she and her subjects relish in the power and play of the female-identifying body. The photographs on view demonstrate her early and historically-neglected commitment to explorations of uninhibited sexuality and defiance of social taboos. Throughout her decades-long career, she has featured intergenerational subjects, demonstrating that not only does pleasure endure over time, it also evolves.

Closing Saturday, October 22: Meghann Riepenhoff: Ice at Yossi Milo

For her latest series Ice, Riepenhoff ventured deep into wintry climates to extract photographic records of water in its frozen states. Using the early photographic process of cyanotype, Riepenhoff creates images that not only depict, but are themselves the physical traces of ice in its varied forms. Travelling to various bodies of water across the United States, Riepenhoff immerses large sheets of cyanotype paper directly into the elements, allowing snow, ice, and freezing waters to coat the paper’s surface. The elements are then removed, both by way of the artist’s intervention and the natural propensity of ice to melt: a collaboration between artist and the immoveable will of nature. Riepenhoff then exposes the paper to sunlight, allowing the effects of time and chemistry to unearth the intricate microstructures and cosmic vastness of ice normally hidden from the human eye. 

Coinciding with the exhibition, a monograph by the same name will be published by Radius Books in conjunction with Yossi Milo Gallery, featuring an essay by Rebecca Solnit 

Through October 22 at Yossi Milo Gallery, 245 Tenth Avenue, New York, NY Info
