NYC: "Africolor" Photography Exhibit now open at Danziger Projects

Africolor, a new exhibition at the Danziger Projects gallery looks at the connections in photography between Africa, color, and color photography. With the advent of color photography, and in particular with the acceptance of color photography into the mainstream of fine art in the 1980s, the vivid colors and bright light of the continent seemed to serve as inspiration for a wide range of photography from the indigenous to the imagined, and from documentary to staged. Celebrating the diversity of color photographic expression, Africolor presents groupings of work that are a compelling (but by no means comprehensive) sampling. The exhibit includes works from Malick Sidibe (our fave!), Daniele Tamagni, Ruud van Empel, Lolo Veleko, Martin Parr, Samuel Fosso, Mickalene Thomas, and JR (the street artist who has mounted his guerilla-style installations of photographs all over the world).


The Danziger Projects gallery is located at 527 West 23rd Street and its summer hours are Tuesday - Friday 11-6pm.
