ROOM EAST IN NYC TO PRESENT RARE HOLLIS FRAMPTON XEROGRAPHIC ARTWORK
October 26, 2016—Buffalo, NY—Dean Brownrout Modern/Contemporary is pleased to announce that, from October 30-December 23, 2016, New York City gallery Room East will present “By Any Other Name,” featuring the xerographic artwork of Hollis Frampton.
The works were created from 1979 through 1983, when color copiers were new, rare and prohibitively expensive. Frampton was able to make them when he was invited, as a visiting artist, to use the machine at the Everson Museum in Syracuse, NY. This is the most complete exhibition ever presented of this multi-part series.
Dean Brownrout Modern/Contemporary is the representative of the photographic print work of Hollis Frampton.
Says Brownrout, “I’m pleased to continue our relationship with Room East. Their excellent 2015 presentation of Frampton’s ADSVMVS ABSVMVS series furthered the recognition for this groundbreaking filmmaker’s work.
“We’re excited to broaden the understanding of Frampton’s diverse artistic output. This show highlights key examples of his prescient use of technology; early on, he challenged notions of what makes art and photography,” Brownrout sums up.
