Project Josh Brand
White Columns is pleased to present the first solo exhibition by the New York-based artist Josh Brand.
Brand’s exhibition - in White Columns’ Project space – consists of a group of eleven recent unique photographic works. With two exceptions – where a negative exists – Brand’s images are produced in the darkroom, without the use of a camera or film. Exposing photographic paper to analogue processes and serendipitous effects Brand’s images exist within a continuum of 20th Century photographic experimentation, and reverberate with the work of a recent generation of artists – amongst them Liz Deschenes, Eileen Quinlan, Markus Amm, and Wolfgang Tillmans – who have, in different ways, sought to explore both the limits and limitations of the non-representational photographic image.
Josh Brand lives and works in Brooklyn, NY. He received a BFA in 2002 from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, IL. He is a member of the collective ‘Hurray’. Group exhibitions and screenings include ‘Greater Brooklyn’, CRG Gallery, New York (2005) and ‘Prekops at Home’, Pittsburgh Center for the Arts, Pittsburgh, PA (2003). Projects with ‘Hurray’ include: ‘Bring the War Home’, Elizabeth Dee Gallery, New York & QED, Los Angeles, CA (2006); and ‘Hurray’, Project Room, Nicole Klagsbrun Gallery, New York (2005), amongst others.
