LABspace is very pleased to present two shows of photography by longtime friends and colleagues, Gail LeBoff and DGKrueger. Glacier Girls by LeBoff and Private Collection by Krueger open with a reception for the artists on Saturday, December 12 from noon-2pm and runs through Saturday, January 9.
Gail LeBoff travels annually to Iceland where she photographs the exquisite silence of the white glacier landscapes. She also photographs pre-adolescent figure skaters (anonymously) at skating rinks and places them within these glacier environments. The resulting image of young skaters in the exquisite, endangered, vulnerable and silent glaciers speaks volumes to the precarious situation we are handing the next generation of humanity.
Gail LeBoff, Untitled #5163, "24 x35". 2015, Archival Digital Pigment Print, Edition of Five
For his new photographic series Private Collection, Krueger explores the marriage of private and public as well as the current drive to brand and market culture. With these photographs Krueger creates wonderfully humorous scenarios whereby his 32-year gay relationship has been busted out of the proverbial art-world closet. The couple’s snapshots are now front and center on museum and gallery walls and at auction at Sotheby's. It is still rare to see images of homosexual relationships at auction or in museums and fine art galleries. Krueger takes matters in his own hands, deftly balancing critique of the art world with unabashed celebration of the personal.
LABspace is located at 2642 NY Route 23 in Hillsdale, NY in the same building as Crossroads Food Shop and The Hillsdale General Store just west of Rt 22. The gallery is open during the winter months on Saturdays from 11-6 and by appointment via firstname.lastname@example.org. Please like us on Facebook and visit our website.
