The American Dream as Concept vs. Reality
posted by Melanie McWhorter

The American Dream, however that is defined by each individual grasping for it, is a nebulous creature always seductively luring the lower classes (as the upper classes have supposedly reached the finish line) to its bosom often to find out that a wet nurse is needed. David Kamp in the new issue of Vanity Fair discusses this illusive creature and the many years of discourse surrounding how this American concept, as he states there is no "Canadian Dream or Slovakian Dream", was founded as a "freedom from want, not freedom to want world away from the idea that the patriotic thing to do in tough times is go shopping," and its evolution through the years. read more

Thomas Struth: Landschaften (Limited Edition Catalogue) Thomas Struth: Landschaften (Limited Edition Catalogue)
A scarce catalogue documenting an important body of work in Struth's oeuvre.
"In 1991, Struth was commissioned to decorate a new hospital in Winterthur, Switzerland. He decided to produce two flower photographs and a landscape for each of the 37 sickrooms...With this project, Struth hoped to bring the captivating environment of the Winterthur area into the interior space of the hospital, connecting patients to the outside word... The images for the hospital shift between documentary objectivity and painterly qualities of light and shadow."—D.A.P.

James T. & Karla L. Murray: Storefront James T. & Karla L. Murray: Storefront—Signed

Signed copies arriving in 2-4 weeks.

"Authors James and Karla Murray have been photographing the streets of New York for years, publishing two bestselling books on the graffiti scene, Broken Windows and Burning New York, in the process. With the publication of Storefront, the Murrays have turned their attention towards faithfully documenting the generations—old stores and shop windows of New York's neighbourhoods. Within the pages of Storefront, the reader may explore entire blocks that have not changed much in the past century, engaging in startling encounter with contemporary New York. Details of an architectural and cultural heritage that is fast disappearing such as signage, architectural adornment, and window displays are presented in context, as they exist on the street, all in amazing detail."—the publisher READ MORE

Mark McPherson & Max Pam: Hijacked Mark McPherson & Max Pam: Hijacked

Copies arriving in 2-4 weeks.

"Providing a voice for some of the most exciting and provocative new photography from Australia and America, Hijacked takes a road less travelled. The exhibition 'erases traditional boundaries between art, document and snapshot to point towards' the future of contemporary photomedia.

Shunning repetitive and predictable curatorial structures, Hijacked's aesthetic is driven by the mindset and energy of young and emerging practitioners. Embracing the prevailing wanderlust of their generation, their work exhibits a fascination with international subcultures, fragmented trends, alternate life styles and urban landscapes. The exploration of suburban pleasures is placed on par with 'high' artistic experimentation."—the publisher READ MORE
