Jonathan Mannion at Compound

I Got a Gallery / I Got a Show
Jonathan Mannion
September 12 – October 12


To hear Jonathan Mannion tell it – I Got a Gallery / I got a Show is the result of a simple conversation between himself and Set Free Richardson, the founder of Compound in the Bronx that went pretty much as you read it: Free said “I got a Gallery” and Mannion replied “I got a show” … or something like that, anyway.



Jonathan Mannion: I Got a Gallery / I Got a Show, Compound, opening night, 2018


What we get from this is an extraordinary meeting of the minds: Mannion is well known for his imaging contribution to hip hop culture — he’s a legend already and does not appear to be slowing down one bit. Set Free Richardson is something like a cultural ambassador at this point with his on-target Compound that is part Agency, part Art Gallery, part Retail Shop and full-on cultural vortex … all neatly nestled in shadow of the 3rd Avenue bridge, AKA South Bronx.

Mannion has been working with LTI, now LTI-Lightside, for the better part of twenty years — his output has been prodigious: over 500 rappers, actors, athletes, artists, and designers, more than 300 album covers to date plus many editorial & advertising campaigns.

Amy Arbus at Schoolhouse Gallery

Tub Pictures
Amy Arbus
Schoolhouse Gallery
July 20 – August 8



Tub #28
Amy Arbus: Tub #28 from Tub Pictures, Schoolhouse Gallery, 2018
22 x 32 archival pigment print


The significance of this body of work was somewhat lost on us when Amy Arbus presented it as a scanning and printing project. In fact, this isn’t all that unusual here as we are, after all, service providers and are expected to be focused on the technical aspects of producing artwork and less on the conceptual foundations of the work itself. Often last to know, as it were — we then found ourselves touched to have been asked to handle these pieces at all, particularly considering their deep personal relevance, which, is best described in Amy’s  own words:



t wasn’t until my toe hit the water that it dawned on me why I was there. The process itself was so awkward and challenging. I was completely distracted by the logistics of mounting the camera and tripod on the bathroom sink, pre-setting the focus, exposure, and camera angle that I wasn’t thinking about the significance of what I was doing. It was 1992 and I was there revisiting a scene I’d never witnessed. 


I thought about what it must have looked like almost obsessively at first, but then it had been twenty-one years since it happened. When I was seventeen and away at school, my mother, Diane Arbus, took her own life in the bathtub. Her death was such a shock that I don’t remember much about the next ten years. I had taken many baths since she died, but this one with my camera perched above me was significant.


When I developed the one roll of film, I realized how little I knew about how the pictures would look. I used a cable release to trip the shutter and the camera was set to a ten second delay so I could get back in the water each time to make another exposure. Even though the camera never moved, I had no way of predicting how much or how little of me was in the frame.       


These photographs taught me that pictures are never the same as the experience of making them, that they fail if they are merely what you intended, and that mistakes can lead to discoveries. But more importantly, they convinced me that thoughts and feelings register on film (or pixels) which changed the way I worked and the way I look at photographs.


When I saw the photographs I was surprised and embarrassed because they were so unflattering. They weren’t like nudes, they were naked and raw. But I came to realize that they were full of stark contrasts: fitful yet lifeless, violent yet sexual, and maternal yet innocent. They were unlike anything I had ever done.

Rob Hann at the Nässjö Konsthall

Black Crow
Rob Hann
Nässjö Konsthall, Sweden
June 16 – August 18



IMG_0640_adjRob Hann: Black Crow at Nässjö Konsthall, 2018


Once you learn that the title for Rob Hann’s exhibition Black Crow was inspired by the Joni Mitchell song of the same name — and you take in the fact that he’s literally logged in thousands of miles in search of his haunting landscape based images — it becomes very hard to get that song (and her sound) from the album Hejira out of your head when viewing his work …. well, if you’re a Joni Mitchell fan, I suppose.


But this work isn’t about Joni Mitchell — and as if to cement that sentiment, Rob has a book of these images coming in October called Diesel Fried Chicken, which, almost seems like the literary equivalent of a DJ scratching the needle straight across the album and grinding that association to a halt (!)
