Christina Fernandez: Prospect September 16–November 22, 2017 Artist’s reception: Saturday, September 23, 6–8 PM Gallery Luisotti is delighted to announce the upcoming exhibition, Christina Fernandez: Prospect. It is the artist’s fourth solo show at the gallery. This exhibition is presented in conjunction with the programming of Pacific Standard Time: LA/LA. The exhibition features two new bodies of work, View from here and reflect/project(ion). She has worked on these two series since 2016. Her new work continues several threads present in her earlier series, with a renewed formal clarity. Ideas regarding place, history, memory and legacy are strong currents within the exhibition. View from here is an ongoing series of ten photographs, depicting various windows and their views onto the exterior surroundings of a particular structure. Fernandez has placed the window and its immediate interior surroundings in focus while the exterior landscape in blurred as an effect of the shallow depth of field. She disrupts the established convention of the window being used to look out at something by emphasizing the interior of a space and its particular history. In a way it heightens the viewer’s awareness that someone else has stood there previously. Many are idiosyncratic or odd, while others, such as a photograph made at Manzanar, the WWII internment camp, are weighed down with a profound and painful history. The work’s title, Toyo (Manzanar), refers to the Japanese American photographer Toyo Miyatake, who was interned there and made photographs of fellow inmates with a makeshift camera. A lesser-known history would be that of sisters Thelma and Juanita Austin, who were the last keepers of the Point Fermin Lighthouse in San Pedro before control was handed over to the City of Los Angeles. She looks through the windows of other figures ranging from Noah Purifoy to ghost town conmen. Fernandez has previously explored the imagery of the window through her series Lavanderia, though View from here is totally devoid of visible people.
The gallery will be closed Saturday, September 2 in honor of the Labor Day holiday weekend. We will resume our normal hours on Tuesday, September 5. Next week is the final week of John Divola: Physical Evidence, which will close on Saturday, September 9.

Gallery Luisotti is delighted to announce that the Albright-Knox Art Gallery has acquired a 17-element photographic installation by Ursula Schulz-Dornburg from her series Sonnenstand. The work was the centerpiece of the gallery's Frieze New York 2017 presentation. The museum selected the work during the opening hours of the fair. It depicts the changing position of the sun and seasons as viewed from within a small chapel in San Juan de Busa, Spain. Established in 1862, the Albright-Knox Art Gallery holds one of the finest collections of Modern and Contemporary Art. Collecting significant works by living artists is fundamental to the Albright-Knox's mission. A major thanks to the museum and congratulations to Schulz-Dornburg! #ursulaschulzdornburg #friezenewyork #friezespotlight #friezeny @friezeartfair

Repost from @natgeo, a photo by Simon Norfolk: "101 years ago today...1 July 1916: the first day of the Battle of the Somme...This battle was fought by the armies of the British and French against the German Empire. The first day of the Somme was, in terms of casualties, also the worst day in the history of the British army, which suffered 57,470 casualties." #ww1 #somme

Now on view through September 9 | John Divola: Physical Evidence #johndivola
Gallery Luisotti is pleased to announce the upcoming exhibition John Divola: Physical Evidence. Divola, whose series Abandoned Paintings (2007–08) was featured in the 2017 Whitney Biennial, is known for his visual exploration of abandonment and ruin in the Southern California landscape, and often with a sense of humor bordering on pathos. Physical Evidence will feature two bodies of work, Untitled 1990 (1990) and the Five Prints Portfolio (1987), that may (at first) seem distant from the concerns of his more recent work. However, these two rarely exhibited bodies of work show Divola’s long held commitment to exploring the contradictions of a medium caught between document and artifice. The exhibition is on view from June 17–September 9. The artist's reception is August 5, 6–8 pm. #johndivola @divola
