The Leslie-Lohman Museum of Art is temporarily closed in support of New York City’s efforts to slow the spread of COVID-19, so “Uncanny Effects: Robert Giard’s Currents of Connection” is not currently on view.
Although the exhibit is closed, you can read about it in these two articles.
“Buffering the Lens” offers a glimpse of the exhibition and explains the approach of curators Ariel Goldberg and Noam Parness as they assembled this retrospective of Robert Giard’s work. Giard’s practice was highly personal as well as historical, since he sought to understand the cultural production, experiences, and environments of the artists, writers, activists and friends he photographed. Goldberg and Parness delve into Giard’s archive of letters and notes to deepen our understanding of the context for his work.
“Cultural Connections” is an interview with the curators—Ariel Goldberg and Noam Parness—in Aesthetica magazine.
