From Bauhaus to Buenos Aires: Grete Stern & Horacio Coppola

From Bauhaus to Buenos Aires: Grete Stern & Horacio Coppola

Greta Stern's "Sueño No. 1: Electrical Appliances for the Home" (1949) is reproduced from MoMA's enlightening From Bauhaus to Buenos Aires: Grete Stern & Horacio Coppola, the catalogue to the first American museum exhibition ever devoted to this pioneering couple, who introduced photomontage and other revolutionary techniques to Latin America. Essayist Roxana Marconi writes, "Investing her work with psychoanalytic feminism, Stern succeeded in representing a new postwar feminine type: a figure struggling to tweak authority and free herself from the ideology of marriage, the dynamics of sexual machismo and the burdens of motherhood. In one forward-thinking photomontage after another, she examines women's dreams with urgency and surreal wit. Her Bauhaus background in typography, design, and advertising culture met the Borgesian sensibility of narrativity and the rupture of her adopted country."

Kehinde Wiley: The World Stage: Haiti

Kehinde Wiley: The World Stage: Haiti

"There is a regalness to their stance. The chins raised in quiet defiance, in unassuming pride, offering a knowing regard that their self-possession carries its own currency. There is a history to these stances, yes the colonial history Kehinde Wiley used as foundations upon which to usurp and reconfigure Europeanist notions of power. Like the camouflage of Catholicism under which Vodou was surreptitiously practiced in this country so too are these stances of the classic island woman—the busker, market woman with head-tie and ruffle skirt, and the turned back, offering both a 'chups' (sucked teeth) and moment of voyeuristic eyes to regard as might be expected. These are queenly statures, inherited, put on, assumed by a culture whose embrace of womanhood in this arena is not unfamiliar." Excerpt from M. Cynthia Oliver's text and featured image, "Venus Anadyomene" (2014) are reproduced from World Stage: Haiti, which reproduces many of the most talked-about paintings in Wiley's current show at the Brooklyn Museum, closing Sunday. Read more about our forthcoming title in the series, Kehinde Wiley: The World Stage: France 1880-1960.

Joel Meyerowitz: Retrospective

DATE 5/29/2015

Joel Meyerowitz: Retrospective

"The moment is everything to me! And it can happen anywhere; when I'm working on the street and there's a flash of instantaneous recognition, or when I'm standing in a physical space while the light is changing. If the moment doesn't enter me, penetrate me, and move me, I can't make a photograph. It has to have a visual component, where I feel the necessity of it. It's like I'm stabbed by the recognition, it is so precise and it enters so deeply, that I am its victim, a willing victim of this moment of transformation. Because what is art really? Art is ordinary life transformed through the medium of a human being, who experiences some momentary connection to it. And it's in that connection that art is formed. And so I walk around the world, waiting for something to penetrate my natural resistance and open me up. I seek this particular characteristic of openness to things. I don't want to merely make another good photograph, I want to have another experience of life being so thrillingly perceived that I am helpless in front of it, and I just say yes to it. In some ways I have always felt that photography was an optimistic art form. Because every time you press the button you say yes!" New York City (1978) is reproduced from the essential overview, Joel Meyerowitz: Cape Light. For information about Aperture's forthcoming new edition of Cape Light, continue to the book page.
